What Do You Stand For?

It has been said, “If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything”. Now this phrase has been repeated throughout history but appears to be originally from Alexander Hamilton.

So, if you haven’t asked yourself recently, what DO you stand for? Certainly, the last year has made clearly having answers to this question more important than ever!

To be truly independent, on this great day of American independence, you need to know where you stand on the major cornerstones of your life (Personal, Spiritual, Material, Fitness, and Financial).

A strong personal philosophy on each of these is vital to your success and developing an evolving professional life and practice.

This is a great day to ask yourself if you are truly living the personal and professional life you deserve?

Are your actions leading you in the direction of the goals you set at the beginning of the year? If not, make the midyear corrections NOW to ensure not another precious moment of your personal and professional life are wasted.

So, what do you stand for as a private practice owner?

Make sure your patients and your staff know your personal philosophy on these vital cornerstones or you are liable to ‘fall for anything’!

If you are not crystal clear on your personal philosophy, or even if it needs some updating or fine-tuning, get out a blank legal pad, sit in a quiet place for as long as it takes, close your eyes for a while and just list what comes to mind.

Then plan the action steps to resolve whatever is not serving you or enhancing your health and happiness. Just make sure you do this before you go to sleep tonight!

All successful people can clearly define their stands.

You must count yourself in these ranks.

I wish you the best along your journeys! Always remember, we are here to help each other!
