Part III -- Why not you?
Dr Chris Baker practices and teaches around the world.
Each and every day, people are living their dreams.
People are getting wealthy. Practices are thriving, and getting free of insurance. Relationships are dynamic and wonderful. People are getting healthier every day, regardless of their age. Lives are improving every day. Let it be you! Your life can be the life of your dreams. Some people are living their dreams, and so can you! Let it be you!
Do you look at other practices, see them thriving and wish it could be you? You know, most people think about getting rich. Yet, only a very small percentage of them do. But anyone can. Someone is going to learn how to truly manage their practice, and turn it into the business it can be. Why not let it be you?
Don’t assume that you’re stuck with the way things are right now. You aren’t. Life changes every single moment, and so can you. It’s simply deciding - making a decision.
As the amazing Jim Rohn encouraged people, Someone is going to make the decision to become healthier than ever before. Someone is going to decide to eat healthfully. Someone is going to start walking or running regularly. Someone is going to start walking the stairs every day. Why not let it be you?
Every day people decide to improve their lives. Every day decisions change the course of lives.
Why not let it be you?
Nobody says it better than Jim Rohn when he gives his simple steps to make it YOU:
1. COMMIT TO WORKING ON YOU
Are you going to improve or stay the same? No matter what you have achieved, you are at a certain point right now. What you have achieved in the past is fine, but it doesn’t make a difference for the future. The decision about what you will become is made each day and every day.
Each day someone is making the decision to better him or herself. Let it be you.
2. MAKE A PLAN
Once you have decided to become better, you will have to have a plan. It doesn’t have to be a long, intricate plan. It can be simple. Walk a mile a day. Read an article a day. Work ON your business (away from patients) an hour a day. That is a simple plan with achievable goals.
Someone is going to develop a plan that will take them into the future of their dreams. Let it be you.
3. BEGIN YOUR ACTIONS
All of the great ideas, without action, become stale and useless. The key to turning dreams into reality is action. People who have great ideas are a dime a dozen. People who act on their dreams and ideas are the select few, but they are the ones who gain the wealth, health and wisdom that is available.
Someone will act today. Let it be you.
Stop looking at others who live the good life, wishing that you were as well, and instead begin to commit to your improvement, develop a plan and act on it. Someone is going to. Let it be you!
"I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk." ~ Anthony Robbins
