Actually a better question is “What changes do you want to MAKE?”
It takes your constant and consistent decisions to make changes - because our lives become so habitual. Habits are mostly unconscious.
That’s why it takes conscious energy to change what we are doing, where we are going, what we are reaping.
So, there are ways to make change happen. It is within YOU.
The first step is your belief. about your life.
“If you’re gonna make a change, you’re gonna have to operate from a new belief that says life happens not TO me but FOR me.”
~ Tony Robbins
The next step is being clear on your goal.
So what change are you after?
Who do you want to be? What will that be like?
And then, begin making action toward that goal. The tiniest steps are great. Do something, anything, and then do something else, anything else, to put you on your path.
The Universe’s magic engages to help you.
You are on your way.
Repeat over and over.
Besides providing great patient treatment, great dentists learn to work on their businesses / practices and to provide vision, leadership and love.
Just what makes you want to be a dentist, anyway?
Where do you find your motivation each day when you walk into your practice?
These are important questions to ask ourselves -- and to address as we progress through our careers.
There are some important "blocks" to use when you build the foundations of both your dental practice and your life. The quality of those building blocks will determine the quality of what's built upon them.
No matter whether you have a dental practice in the USA or a ladies' saloon in Abu Dhabi, great relationships are absolutely essential between a business and its customers.

Relationships are transformational for your dental practice. Deal with your patients with absolute love in your heart.
