Living Your Own Soul Purpose

Living Your Own Soul Purpose

Do you ever feel like your life is not as successful as it could be? Or perhaps you have financial success, but you feel like something is missing. Do you wish that you could do work that you truly enjoy, instead of pushing away at a daily grind that leaves you tired, stressed and bored?

If that’s the case, consider that you may not yet have found your calling in life. You need to live your soul’s true purpose if you want to succeed, and that won’t happen if you are stuck in an environment that makes you happy.

Taking Time to Find YourselfLiving Your Own Soul Purpose

The first step to truly living your life’s purpose is to figure out what drives you. What is it that motivates you to be a better and happier person? What is it that makes you want to get out of bed in the morning? Do you live for people, or take pride in making things? Is music your thing, or is it a movement that makes you happy?

Vision & Purpose

from PSI Telesiminar –

A vision is more than a thought or a daydream. A vision, in terms of your personal growth, is a revelation of truth made known by the alignment of your conscious and subconscious mind. ……By creating a vision for your life, you have the liberty to chart the course of your own success and live a life of purposeListen to more PSI Teleseminars here on iTunes


Pursue Your Dreams and Goals

Everyone has something that does bring them satisfaction, and one thing that many people come to realize when they are older is that while moderation and balance are important, it is even more important to pursue your dreams and goals.

10 Big Differences Between Goals and Dreams That You Must Know

Are you waiting for your dreams to come true and change your life?  I am sorry to tell you that dreams don’t come true.  Rather, it is your goals that can forever change your life.  You need to set goals in order turn your dreams into reality.
Don’t Confuse Dreams and Goals. 


Doing what society tells you is ‘the right thing’ will only get you so far – eventually, you need to focus on the things that make you really happy – and it’s better to do that while you are young enough to make a difference.

So, step back and think; are the people around you making you happy? Is your job making you happy? Are you pursuing hobbies that are the best way of spending your time, or doing things out of habit?

How Dreams Become Goals by Diana Robinson

It is wonderful to have a dream. It can also be wonderful to have a goal.

True, there is a school of thought that maintains we should not need goals. We looked at this view a few months ago.

My own perception of this viewpoint is that it applies to those goal-lists that time management folks advocate. They can be useful, or a burden, depending on where you are in your personal growth. Today, though, I am looking at something different.

Today I am looking at the difference between having a dream and having a goal. Read the complete article here….

If you are interested in personal development, looking for ways to be more successful, help define your path in life, and you want to take action check out this video below and this YouTube channel of PSI Seminars.

PSI Basic Seminar

When was the last time you tried something and failed?

When was the last time you pursued a goal and tested yourself?

Have you ever lost in a contest, but walked away proud that you did try your best?

Have you ever won something, after being nervous that you might not succeed?

Life is about success and failure – learning and failing. Bonding, and being rejected.

Don’t be afraid to walk away from people that don’t make you happy, and don’t be afraid to chase after the things that you want from life.

You will find the following write-up about the Scheduling Institute done by  Dr. Joe Blaes, Chief Editor at quite detailed

Five or six years ago Sam told me about a new program he had joined called the Scheduling Institute (SI). He explained how SI founder Jay Geier had helped him greatly increase the number of new patients in his practice. He had met Jay at a dental meeting and listened to him play recordings of dental staffs answering the phones at their dental offices. He said right then he believed his team could truly benefit. And they did. In a short time Sam’s new patients went from about 35 a month to 120…..

SI’s New Patient Focus/Telephone Training Program produces, on average, a 40% increase in a practice’s new patients. When you think about that for a moment, that is an incredible increase. Think about what that kind of an increase would mean for your bottom line…..

Ninety-eight percent of new patients call your office before coming in. This means your front desk staff is their first impression and the “gatekeepers” to your schedule. SI conducts research studies of more than 1,400 dental practices each month…..

Read the complete article at the above link and how Scheduling Institute has now expanded their training to not only the person at the front desk but also assistants, hygienists. associates and the dentist and owners of the practice.



Home HealthCare

An Opportunity Of A Lifetime With Brightstar Care Franchise

United States Economic Environment Is Improving Offering Up Opportunities

Since the 2008 – 2009 financial crisis, the economic environment in the United States has been viewed in a weary perspective. This is mainly because the residual effect of the crisis has been persisting up until recently, people have regained optimal confidence in the economy. Investing in new businesses does not come with the risk of financial ruins when the business fails as was the case a couple years ago.

However, it would be a very good idea if the investment you make yield profits that are reflective of a strong economy that we are experiencing. This is only possible if the investments made are the right ones. A good example of the premium investment is investing in the home healthcare business.

The Home Healthcare Market Is Shielded From Economic Ups and Downs

Home HealthCareHome healthcare is a service rendered to senior citizens to help them in their daily living while they reside in their homes. The services rendered by home health care practitioners include helping the senior citizens with their daily endeavors as well as providing medical care wherever necessary.

Statistically speaking, this type of service one of the fastest growing in terms if demand healthcare industry. A survey by the American Association of Retired Persons revealed that a majority of senior citizens in America prefer to spend their retirement years in the comfort of their home. This number is as high as 90% of the senior citizens. This includes receiving any medical care that they may need.

Factoring the growth numbers of senior citizens at about 10,000 people per day and that 90% of them prefer to stay in their homes during retirement years, this particular niche in the health care system is expected to become a profitable business. (With a market value of $55B.)

Heading To Jay Geier’s Scheduling Institute

I will be heading to Jay Geier’s Scheduling Institute. I am glad I am finally able to go as I have been wanting to attend for a while now. It will really help me in my dental practice and I hope to learn a lot from everything that I learn there.

Training’s are really good for me because I get to learn new things and they are always really helpful. I try to stay on top of them because I know they are important. They are the only way I am going to be able to grow and learn more about being a dentist and running my own practice.

I have been a dentist for five years and I love what I do. I am very happy that I picked this path because I can’t imagine doing anything else. I also enjoy keeping up on my training so I can be the best dentist that I can be and can figure out the best way to make a living with it.

Jay Geier’s Training is the Best

The way that I see it, going to Jay Geier’s Scheduling Institute will make me more money. It will be worth the time and the cost. I will take what I learned back to my practice and will be able to make it better. I want to be the place that everyone wants to go for their teeth needs.

I have worked very hard the last five years to get  where I am at today. There have been a lot of long hours and I have shed many tears. I would hope no one would think that what I do is easy scheduling institutebecause it is not. It requires a lot out of me but it is worth it. I have put off getting married because I wanted to focus on my dental career but I think there will be time to do that later on in life.

I decided to become a dentist when I was 18 years old. I knew it was what I wanted to do because every time I would go to the dentist myself I would ask questions about what it took to be one. It was then I knew I needed to go to school and follow my heart.

I wasn’t sure if I would focus on children or not. In the end I decided not to. I love children but I felt like working on their teeth just wasn’t for me. I am thankful I was able to figure that out.

After I get back from the Jay Geier’s Scheduling Institute I need to sit down with my staff to let them know of any changes. It will be good to do this so they know what direction we plan to go on. I hope that everyone is okay with it. They are a great staff and I always enjoy working with them.

I hope that I am able to meet other dentists while I am there. I would love to find someone to work closely with. I think it would be good to get together on a regular basis and figure out what would be best for both of our practices. It is the best way to work on things and bounce ideas off of one another.

Whenever I go to a new training I take a lot of notes. I then have to go home and look over them. I type them up into a report that is a lot easier for me to read and go to. I can also give this report to any of my staff to look over too. It is better than just giving them all of my notes.

I am hoping to grow my practice so that I can hire other dentists to work for me. That would be my ideal situation. That is why I am so focused on learning what I can and being the best dentist I can be. I am hoping that this training will help with a lot of the questions I have had lately and help me to understand how to get to my goals on a faster timetable.

I first heard of the Institute from a friend of mine who I met in dental school. We have stayed in touch and she tells me different things that might help. I do the same. When she told me about this I knew it was something I had to go to.

I am glad I signed up as I have a really good feeling about what my experience is going to be like while I am there. I think I will learn a lot and it will be good for my business. It will be a great way for me to work harder towards my goals for my practice.
