Letting Go Of Self-Imposed Rules

Dr. Ginger Bratzel talks about letting go of self imposed rules you place on yourself that are only holding you back from being an advancing dentist.

Because I want this year to be your best year yet, I wanted to share a tip with you that will help you leave some ‘baggage’ from the past and hit the ground running for the next 12 months.

Some of that baggage is letting go of self-imposed rules. You know what I’m talking about. Those thoughts and values that you hold true, but it reality, they might not be.

‘That won’t work in my town.’

‘My team members wouldn’t like it.’

‘I don’t know how.’

These are all the reasons you have for not changing. But I like to make you think a little – are they really reasons…. or are they just excuses?

Just like when little kids come into your office and are scared of the dentist. That is a learned behavior, most likely from their parents or peers. They aren’t born with that fear. The same applies with the fears you have told yourself about what you can and can’t do that are keeping you small.

I want to you shed all of the rules that are holding you back. If they aren’t serving you well then I want you to let them go out of your life. YES, just let them go.

Here’s a little exercise to help you shed these rules – I want you to write down everything you believe you can’t do in your business, and go through each one and challenge why you can’t. And if you still feel that you can’t accomplish that task, I want you to challenge yourself to prove 3 reasons that you can. This is all to help you get rid of the rules and invest in your self and your practice’s growth.

In this video, you’ll learn about:

  • To leave your ‘baggage’ behind you
  • How to let go of your self-imposed rules
  • Challenging your fears
Please take a few minutes and watch the video above– do it for you and for your practice.
