Have you ever questioned yourself?
Everyone has a dream. Maybe yours is to be lead dental assistant or become an office manager or go to dental hygiene school or even become a dentist or professor. You think long and hard about the decision and plan out the steps to make your dream come true, but then life happens, and you want to crawl back in bed, throw the covers over your head and wish for tomorrow. I’ve been there. Early on when I started my company, I was a single mom and worked part time in a dental office while trying to get my business off the ground. I was spread thin, financially, spiritually and emotionally. It was a trying time in my life, but one of the most rewarding and epic growth periods I’ll ever have.
Who knew I would find my GRIT in my 40’s! What’s Grit? Well, after having a pet bird for a while, I learned grit is required for their digestion. But I’m not talking about that or the grit/pumice we use on a rag wheel in the dental lab. I’m talking about your spirit—the one deep down within you. Your passion. Your WHY. Grit is that “extra something” we all have, we just need to find it. So how do you know if you have GRIT? Check out this link and read about the 11 signs that tell you if you have grit. If there are some you aren’t doing try to do them. It’s all about channeling our passion, perseverance and stamina in order to stick with our dreams until they become a reality. I learned through my failures and success that it’s never too late to begin something new—if you have GRIT!
