You’re on track!
Yep, you heard correctly.
One of the clearest signals you’re absolutely in alignment with your trajectory is when it appears you’re not!
Weird (which by the way means something that happens exactly at the right time for the right reasons).
An aeroplane gains altitude by passing thru turbulence. Otherwise it’s destined to travel lower than its potential. You are the same. To gain altitude in your business you must go thru turbulence.
A common mistake.
A common mistake practice owners make is miss-interpreting turbulence for being OFF-TRACK. Oftentimes not true. In fact quite the opposite. The universe will usually test your resolve by appearing to give you a signal you’re off track. It’s a test that’s it. It’s the universe’s way of checking your alignment and resilience.
So know that if there’s turbulence, things are little rocky, you and your practice are GROWING.
You cannot stay the same and still evolve. Team members must come and go. Procedures must be updated, and old one’s discarded. Patients must be filtered, and above all you must stand your ground and stay the course.
This is the law of evolution and it usually happens in quantum jumps. By this I mean in the short to medium term it may appear you’re not making much ground, maybe even regressing, and then you jump. The practice is up 100k, someone leaves, a new team member joins you etc.
One final comment. This is where a mentor can be of great support. You’re in the fishbowl but a mentor can help you see your practice from an entirely different perspective, an evolutionary perspective.
