We are people pleasers by nature.
Studies show that over 83% of us who go into healthcare are very much the same. We share very similar characteristics.
(it takes a special kind of person to enter this profession)
We are hard to work with (and live with) but yet we won’t change.
No one ever pats us on the back yet we keep going.
We strive…and we push…and we get the job done, because that’s who we are…
We never give up. We’re stubborn.
Is it admirable?…Yes.
Is it healthy?…(I’m not so sure.)
We should stop trying to please EVERYONE.
We should stop towing the middle line and remain unnoticed.
Stop being “palatable” and start being exciting!
We should stop fearing being hated.
(Even if it means losing some patients or physicians.)
And start recognizing the truth that in order to be loved, we must first be hated.
Are you ready for success?
Do you have a voice?
We all have a strong powerful voice within us, and it’s about time to let it shine.
Don’t hold it back.
Don’t feel ashamed.
Let it out.
Start living it.
Life is short.
Start finding your strong, powerful inner voice.
