To be, or Not to be...an employee of "Corporate Dentistry."
The American Dream
Coined 1931 by James Truslow Adams (1878-1949), U.S. writer and popular historian (unrelated to the Massachusetts Adamses), in "Epic of America."
[The American Dream is] that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement. It is a difficult dream for the European upper classes to interpret adequately, and too many of us ourselves have grown weary and mistrustful of it. It is not a dream of motor cars and high wages merely, but a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and be recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position. [Adams]
Does "Corporate Dentistry" sound like the American Dream to you?
- Why did you go to dental school?
- What do you want your life's work to look like?
- What do you want your family finances to look like?
- Do you want to create something for you or someone else?
The entrepreneurial spirit is powerful, our country was based upon its very existence. Please do not think that you lack what it takes, or that your student loans are too high, or that you're scared that you don't know what you're doing or that failure is imminent. Every successful dentist in the history of successful dentists, has felt one form of this or another. You are not alone and you owe it to yourself to make the most of your education, to build a legacy of which you and your family can be proud. You have what it takes, now you just need a plan. Learn how to think like a CEO and you remove rick of failure.
