Something that we discuss quite frequently here at Top Practices is that every successful, high-achieving, happy professional, particularly in the medical world, has figured out key habits, behaviors, and attitudes that help them cultivate peace of mind. These habits and mindsets allow them to cut out the things in life that build up stress and instead focus on the things that allow them to achieve their goals. All of these mindsets matter and can be learned. Two of them, however, are at the root of everything we do in Top Practices—and are easily seen in the testimonials of our most successful members.
Those two central mindsets include working with accountability and fellowship, as well as setting and achieving goals.
The Power of the Mastermind
Having a mindset of accountability and fellowship means you work closely and learn from others in your field so you push each other to grow and solve problems. We do this at Top Practices through the Mastermind group program. The Mastermind group is, of course, based on legendary business genius Napoleon Hill’s idea that when many creative, motivated minds come together, they are able to create more than a single person could on his or her own. Put more simply, “two heads are better than one.”
This mindset really does make a difference for success in a podiatry practice. You’re able to learn what works and what doesn’t, as well as gain from the insight and experience of others in your field. Our top performing members say it best:
- "I get association with other successful individuals that are working in the same field that I am, so I can actually get their insight and their experience and learn from their mistakes and their successes." – Dr. Brandt Gibson, from American Fork, UT
- "It’s not just the information that you learn - like how to run your business - it’s that you have a fellowship of other doctors that you can go to and you can talk to about your problems and you don’t feel alone anymore." – Dr. Victoria Melhuish, from Carson City, NV
Ultimately, having and achieving goals in all areas of your life essential to being successful. This really is a mindset and not just some action you do periodically to “stay on track.” A goals-oriented mindset allows you to take your podiatry practice to the next level by honing in on the areas you need to change or improve to achieve those ends. It allows you to cut out everything that gets in the way of building the practice you want to have. It provides you with an important and evolving roadmap to growth.
Again, some of our top performing members put it best:
- "We were looking for a group that we could use to help benchmark our practice and learn [from] other top practices. We joined because this was a group [where] we found both." – Dr. Cynthia Oberholtzer-Classen, from Castle Pines, CO
- "The best thing about being a Top Practices member is the accountability that it provides for me. Having a set call every month, having the different opportunities to network with other practices as we’re trying to build our little empire in Central Illinois has been great." – Dr. Melissa Lockwood, from Bloomington IL
These are only two of the all-important mindsets successful podiatrists can and should learn to really grow their practices, so they are just a starting place. The more you adjust your habits and behaviors, the easier achieving success becomes.
If growing your podiatry practice and being able to live life on your terms instead of being controlled by your work appeals to you, the Top Practices Mastermind group might be just what you need.
