Guest blog article written by Dr. Mike Schuster, Director of the Schuster Center, author, well-known speaker and coach to thousands of dentists.
This is one of a series of posts and emails Mike writes regularly, encouraging dentists to be the best they can be.
Mike has kindly allowed us to share a selection of these articles with you. This is the third of our selection.
In this article Mike discusses the recipe for success with some good questions to consider and, naturally, pointers to getting on your own road to success.
Recipe for Practice Success
There is a 'recipe' for practice success. There is also a 'recipe' for failure.
A 'recipe' is a set of ingredients, which together, with the right application
always produces the same SUCCESSFUL RESULTS!
There are no exceptions when the right 'recipe' is used. None.
You can spend your life in a 'trial and error' process and never achieve your
potential or you can 'copy' or 'mirror' the 'recipe' of highly successful dentists
and 'achieve' the same results they are and have achieved.
For more than 40 years I've studied and worked with the 'best of the best' and
extracted from them what the 'key strategies' they do each and every day that
produces the outstanding results they've achieved.
Indeed this produced what I refer to as the 'Recipe for Achievement'.
If one person and can do it, anyone can. There are NO EXCEPTIONS. You apply
the same recipe that other successful dentists have and you get the same results.
Tomorrow I'm fortunate to spend a day with 8 dentists that I've worked with and
who have learned the 'recipe of practice success' which means they are financially
independent as well as 'on purpose' in their lives. These dentists are exceptional because
they have learned and applied The Recipe for Achievement we taught them.
They are all Alumni of the Schuster Center. The single thing each of these highly successful
dentists have in common is the 'Recipe for Achievement' they learned and applied at the
They started out as I did and you did.
The difference was we learned and applied a "Recipe for Success'.
It is amazing how different their lives are. How evolved these people are in their thinking,
in their behavior, in their lives.
Yes, there is no doubt that their is "A Recipe for Practice and Life Success'.
The recipe becomes a MODEL. A MODEL of Excellence in life and practice.
It's what we do here at the Schuster Center. The only reason for us to exist is to ensure
the success of the dentists and teams we work with.
Practice and Life are about RESULTS.
Here's an exercise for you!
What RESULTS do you want? What 3 most important results do you want
for your Practice or for yourself?
Write them down!
Think about each RESULT...stay with each result for a minute...
How important, on a scale of 1-10 is this result to you?
What happens if you get the result?
What happens if you don't get the result?
The key to your SUCCESS in life and practice is simply this.
Achieving the RESULTS that are MOST IMPORTANT to YOU!
If you're satisfied where you are, then I'm happy for you.
If you are HIGHLY MOTIVATED to ACHIEVE MORE in any area of your life or practice, I have good news
for you..all you have to do is LEARN or COPY a few key strategies and you will ACHIEVE what everyone
else has ACHIEVED applying the RECIPE of Practice and Life success that we have learned and applied
