So… you’ve been dreaming about building or growing your private practice for quite a while now. You can imagine what it would be like to:
- be in charge of your schedule
- decide to make enough money in three days so you can take off four days each week
- be choosy about who you’ll see
- create which types of services/program/products you’ll provide
- most efficiently manage your paperwork and administrative responsibilities
However… you haven’t made the move or (even) the commitment to do what it’s going to take. You’re waiting.
What are you waiting for?
I’m not asking this to egg you on. Honestly, I’m not trying to pull you down my path. I’m just trying to help you understand your thought process so you can feel more like you are in the driver’s seat when it comes to following your dream.
Write it down… everything you are waiting for. Write down all of the things you believe you need; things you believe must happen before you follow your dream.
Once you do that you can determine how much of that is practical, how much of it is an excuse to keep stalling, and how much is just your way to stay stuck.
If you are looking to stay stuck, you just might want to find another dream.
But if you’re stalling, try to figure out why. Find out why those fears are keeping you “in your place”. Because they are. Make the list of what you are waiting for. Become courageous, get busy, and start checking things off that list. Once you get it down on paper, you’ve put your plan into motion and you increase your chances of succeeding.
