Hi friends, welcome to your weekly motivational moments with Eric Vickery, president of coaching at All-Star Dental Academy. This week, I want to talk to you about living a life of significance. You know, I think we all want a life of significance when it’s all boiled down to this thought process. If you really think about it, what are we after? What are we pursuing? I think we want to make a difference, which requires being significant. I don’t know if you guys remember, but when, you know, back in grade school, when I was in first grade,
I think a lot of us were in this position, you know, teachers say, what do you want to be when you grow up? Where, where, where do you want to go with this? And I think we all had dreams of being, you know, movie star, a rock star, you know, a sports star. I love basketball. I wanted to be a basketball player, you know, or just fly among the stars. So I want you to think about this for me. How are you creating a significant impact with the places you enter with the people that you interact with? I have a rule.
Every person I interact with is a person of significance. Every person I interact with is important. I know we’ve probably all seen the movies where, you know, someone’s talking to somebody about something and then they find out that that’s the person they were gonna meet and they were already talking with them and they didn’t realize it because they didn’t think that’s what they would look like. You know, I could tell story after story growing up where I put my foot in my mouth because, you know, I assumed the wrong thing about people.
every person you interact with is a person of significance. So by making others feel greater in your presence, you’re going to create a more significant impact in your life. So how can you see each person you encounter as significant and important this week? How can you truly meet them where they need to be met? Now, imagine how powerful each of you are teamed up together, being significant for each person
you encounter all week long, every single interaction that you have with them. What can you do better this week to impact others that you encounter? I want you to think about it this way. Think about the hardest situation that frustrates you the most. Maybe a grumpy patient or a grumpy team member, okay? I know it’s another people here sitting here right now. So these are the times, these are the situations where you can truly shine to make the greatest difference.
How can you impact people that are struggling? How can you impact people who are grumpy? The people that love you and are nice to you, those are easy to feel significant in, to have an impact. So sit for a moment, time out with your team here, talk about where are you guys really striving to be significant in other people’s lives? How are you really trying to impact others? Everyone you encounter this week is important. Are you treating them that way? All right, now remember, this May,
