Most people absolutely HATE Mondays, but not this girl. Honestly, I really don’t understand it. I absolutely love Mondays… just like I love every other day of the week. When you find something you truly enjoy doing, you feel excited to get up and get started… no matter what day it is!
But, just because we love the work and the people we get to hang out with every day doesn’t mean we don’t need a little inspiration every now and then. I wanted to share some of my favorite inspirational thoughts and quotes that help me shine bright like a diamond ANY day of the week. These are the words that get me super excited to start my week and do BIG things!
“Success is a series of small wins.”
This is one of my favorite things to remember when it comes to any project I’m working on. Chasing big dreams doesn’t happen overnight. I like to take a little bit of time at the end of every day to reflect on my small wins, and celebrate them as the big accomplishments they are.
If you listen to any successful business owner talk about their journey, it is never one big break that got them there. It’s lots of little steps, small decisions, and brave risks that all added up to their big success.
“We convince by our presence.”
This quote by Walt Whitman is one that I like to meditate and reflect on often. As dentists or business owners, we’re selling products and services, but really, we’re selling an experience, too.
Ultimately, we are going to convince people to choose us over our competitors because of our warm, contagious presence. Be a blast to be around, be positive, and be genuine! You’ll have fun, and everyone you meet will have fun, too.
“Leap and the net will appear.”
John Burroughs was a wise man, and this quote is one I live my life by. You can analyze and weigh out every decision until you’re blue in the face, but ultimately, you’re going to have to take a leap. I’ve seen it first hand: those who are afraid to leap stay on the same path they’re on forever. They don’t stretch themselves to see what they’re capable of!
Remember, you can do big things, but you can’t just write “do big things” in your planner and check it off at the end of the day. It just doesn’t work like that (unfortunately). You’re gonna have to leap and have a little faith. Your net will appear and you will be SO glad you pushed yourself to go there.
“Real queens fix each other’s crowns.”
The biggest thing I love about all of the business I run is the spirit of togetherness that I get to enjoy. I truly believe that business does not have to be cutthroat, in fact, I hope the world at large stops telling (and selling) that story to business owners!
Real success comes when you build people up, and help them uncover their natural abilities and gifts. It reminds me of that other great quote, “A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.” I live my life by this principle, and it energizes me to collaborate and learn from others, which is soooo important.
