Welcome to Biz on Your Own terms! Let 2013 be a BIG year to all of us!
Today, let’s take a look at gaining peak performance and eventually success for an alternative healthcare provider.
Let’s face it, the current business world isn’t for wimps. There’s more competition, more changes, and more that needs to be done than ever before. For the alternative health care provider, the challenges increase even more with misunderstandings about who you are, what you offer, and the value you bring to your potential patients. With reality being what it is, if you want your practice to succeed it becomes critical for you to be “hardy” enough to withstand the storms modern business brings.
What is hardiness? My definition is that it’s the ability to roll with whatever life has thrown at you and to keep moving forward. Recently I read the book, Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption, by Laura Hillenbrand.The story tells an intense tale of what hardiness looks like. I couldn’t help being in complete awe of the resilience of this man who stood in the face of horrendous obstacles and found ways to not only go on, but also, after surviving, to forgive and make the world better because of his message about being hardy.
Since in reality that’s not fair, let’s see what of Louis’ heroics could be applied to your practice.
1) Face current challenging situations with patience
2) Look for ways to always maintain respect in business.
3) Find a way to let go of past hurts and move forward to a clean slate
Can you image what a hardy business owner could accomplish if he or she approached their practice using the Louis style—implacable patience with the challenges, maintaining respect for self at all times, and not letting the past define their present business efforts?
Until next time on your biz on your own terms!
