Hello There,

Today’s challenges sometimes make us question our core professional beliefs, values and expectations.  Our beliefs affect our behavior in many ways. Those of us, who worked hard for decades, find it particularly, disheartening.   After pushing ourselves so much more than everyone else around just to get to the top of our profession, only to find that in a stressed economy we must start to see ourselves and our professional world very differently.  It is particularly devastating for those of us who have been threatened by competitive tactics that have nearly destroyed our enterprises and challenged our professional momentum.

When we find ourselves feeling the pressure, it is easy to come to the conclusion that maybe we should abandon our businesses and / or switch careers. But, what if we believe we have something significant to offer and, that we might be able to make a difference perhaps, even be part of the solution instead of the problem.

If we have been in the industry many years, we most likely, have been in this situation more than a few times.  People whom we admire and trust may unintentionally give us the wrong advice. They may not be doing this intentionally. They may just be encouraging us to move on because they feel it’s in our best interest to do so.  Their responses may be mainly, out of concern for our future financial stability more than anything else.  Yet, what of our career lives? If we believe in our purpose we may be willing to take more personal responsibility for keeping on track and not veering off course even when we are confronted with the most horrific of circumstances. 

Some of us believe that we lead a more useful life no matter what and, if riches come to us, or not.  This does not mean we think our time and our efforts are not worth very much, it means that we make choices to follow our passion regardless of how lucrative our efforts are.  It is the perks of the profession that keep us so impassioned.  When you combine our dedication and our sincerity with our interest in our clients and patients you get a wonderful mix of qualities that turn out to be unbeatable.
