I’m Dr. Hassan, a Board-Certified Physiatrist and Independent Practice Owner. I help physiatrists start and grow their own profitable practices so they can achieve financial independence and live without limits.

On your journey to building your profitable practice, you may underestimate how important it is to believe in yourself. If you believe in yourself, there is little to stop you at whatever you want to accomplish. It gives you the power to push forward and to defy the odds. You will be able to handle any roadblocks that come your way. You will also brush off the naysayers. It gives you peace of mind when you stick to your self-belief.

To keep that self-belief strong, you need to define your goals.

You wouldn’t expect a general to fight a war without a map. You, too, need a map to guide you on how to proceed. Too many people skip this step and wonder why they aren’t getting anywhere. Goals are your guidance. But carrying through with them is only done when you believe that it is possible. The belief is the energy you need to take action. It helps you to focus on getting your tasks completed. You will also build confidence when you have self-belief. It’s a powerful tool, as others will be attracted to the confidence. They will follow your lead and you will help show them what is possible.

When you run into the inevitable stumbling blocks, that confidence will help you see through them.

You will know how to take advantage and how to take alternative action when necessary. The people following you will respect that as well. Several forces will try to beat you down. You may even find yourself letting it happen. You need to get centered on why you started your journey in the first place. Use affirmations to reinforce your message. Be consistent with your affirmations.

Unfortunately, many of the negative forces are going to be from your family and friends. They will see it as helping you avoid mistakes, and it’s probably true. They actually do have your best intentions in mind, but they’re most likely more conservative than you are in taking risks. Other times, they might not want you to exceed their station in life. Either way, it’s up to you to disregard their negativity. Many people will succumb to this pressure and give up.

One way to prevent succumbing to others’ negativity is to join groups of like-minded individuals.

It can be related to your business, or it can be groups that focus on self-help. These organizations exist to try and push the negative forces out and boost your self-belief. It’s great to go to the meetings and get encouraged from the group. Attending these groups can sometimes lead to friendships with people where you can extend the encouragement of each other. You may even form business partnerships from these friendships. It’s good to know that you have that support and that these people are there for relationships to form. They understand when everyone else around you doesn’t. Your self-belief will strengthen considerably from this arrangement.
