Dr. Drew’s Monday Motivation – Fear vs Risk
This week’s motivational thought – I am often overwhelmed by requests to help others achieve better business success. However, after 30 years I find two things a) many have listened to such poor advice they are afraid to move and b) many just do not like to take any risks. The problem then is not only risk but fear to move your practice forward.
Lethargy and fear will kill your practice if you don’t take action. When working as a doctor you can be like an athlete on the field and play in any circumstance and with any challenge. Or, you can become a spectator and just watch from the sidelines.
Good doctors take risks and turn them into advantages. Those that struggle procrastinate, make excuses and allow fear to ruin their idea of taking risks. If the Pilgrims did not take risk, we would not celebrate Thanksgiving, if not for Columbus we would not celebrate.
Which are you a risk taker or a risk avoider?
