Treating walk ins Stop my halitosis Taking basic actions.


Taking basic actions to achieve your goals is one way to perform at a high level.

Slowly but surely if you stay on a path that leads to success, you will arrive at your destination.

The greatest of men and women who have arrived at life’s summits will tell you to never give up on your dreams.

Some of our most basic actions consistently applied to our circumstances breathe new life into a downtrending situation.

Basic actions can be duplicated by those you train for greater improvement of your overall condition.

To become a highly successful person keep fueling your creative juices with what you learn, observing and studying simplistic facets of life.

The butterfly in this picture does very little to disrupt the normal daily processes that are always at work in a garden.

Sucking nectar from a flower, transports pollen to another flower, pollenating the entire garden over a period of time.

For this reason the bee and the butterfly would exist as allies of the garden.

Think of your role in life as an ally to those who go about their daily tasks fulfilling vital tasks.

Individuals that know how to stay effective in the game of life are team players in every sense of the word.

Effective leaderships brings out the best in everyone around them.

Success is understanding how to use energy to your advantage.

Energy is what gets things around us well done.

Using it to your advantage is how summits are conquered.

Even at a low ebb, energy consistently poured into an endeavor can only make the endeavor more profitable.

Taking the time to observe how a butterfly effortlessly goes about what it was created to do will teach in a number of ways we are also here with a purpose.

Life does not have to be difficult wrought with tension and anxiety in performing our tasks.

Make your life’s work effortless by taking basic actions that consistently yield success.

Dentists will understand the desire we fight relieving pain and suffering by attempting to be all things to many people.

No one desires to see someone who has been in excruciating dental pain all night have to wait on the availability of a specialist.

In most cases antibiotics and pain medication are effective for a specified period of time.

Taking basic actions and performing them effectively is one of the keys to your success.

Labor of love


Participate in work that is very rewarding to experience a labor of love.

Some of our most pleasant experiences will be found in work performed in pursuit of your passion.

Like minded individuals generate tremendous amounts of energy.

Use this energy to handle the most vital priorities of life.

There are some projects worth their weight in gold if you can render a valuable service and receive the fruit of your labor.

Giving a valuable service or product to the world comes back to the giver in many forms so provide the service or product with no strings attached to it.

A fair fee for your time is a very fair way to request fair compensation for your time.

Leaders find a way to treat customers and clients fairly in their business endeavors.

This is one way to generate free advertising as others share with friends and relatives how you treated them fairly.

Word of mouth advertising is a good way to promote any day of the week adding value to the lives of others.

In our dental office handling a nervous patient in a manner that is caring and nurturing will get them back for additional services if desired.

You may even notice they start to send referrals your way on occasion.

Nurture these kinds of relationships  and a business can double or triple in short order right before your very eyes.

New clients are always on the lookout in any niche for business owners willing to make a person feel welcomed coming into their dental office or business for the first time.

Find an aspect of your current business that can be developed into a labor of love using your existing gifts and talents.

If having trouble finding an area to get started go back and identify what friends and relatives say you do better or as good as anyone else in your niche or field of study.

It may surprise you what people will tell you regarding your gifts and talents.

Those who know you well will not be afraid to inform you what they admire about your work or work ethic.

This can be very enlightening making a discovery about yourself from those who know you well.

While it may be true you can’t listen to everyone, you can listen to those you trust to be honest with you.

Surveying your existing clients to see why they stay in your operation of business is another way to find out the same information.

Find a labor of love in your existing operation to generate new found energy used to handle your most vital priorities.

Receiving and giving


The best that life has to offer comes from giving and receiving.

Your ability to give and receive will take you farther than any other known strategy.

The young lady in the picture is Jen Lancaster, her most recent novel, ” I Regret Nothing” was presented on the Country Club Plaza, at Unity Temple.

Looking forward to reading it.

Mrs. Lancaster was featured on the radio today and told the National Public radio audience, after losing her job she blogged for 3 1/2 years before writing her first book, picked up by publisher, Rainy Day Books.

Listening to the spoken words of those who take the time to find the sunshine in our gloomy days is a treat.

Not everyone has this gift, appreciated by those who still enjoy the intimacy of a well crafted book.

Jen Lancaster gives a quality read for her fans, who receive in return quality content.

Our efforts at whatever careers we pursue should reflect the fact your best has been given in that effort.

Quality effort given receives the respect of all who honestly critique what is generally perceived as well done.

Giving the best that you have enables you to succeed and everyone who succeeds at a high level at anything usually has a great coach behind their success.

After you have given all you can, the coach steps in and helps to take you to a higher level.

Use the vision of a great coach to see what only is seen by one who understands the problems masked in the unseen.

You receive a certain level of success from your own steam. A great coach gives you even greater potential because of experience.

Experience has always been a best teacher. Learn by doing but don’t forget the experiences of great coaches to move into higher levels of success.

Getting your show on the road is your responsibility. Giving your best is also a part of the same plan.

But receiving above and beyond your best comes after you give.

Preparation should not be taken lightly which is needed after you have given your all.

Therefore after you give prepare to receive to the tune you are willing to give.

Understand giving and receiving to experience great success.

Legacy of champions

Legacy Of Champions

There is a legacy of champions that exists between opponents claimed in and outside the boxing ring of life.

Tonight two champions Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Mannie Pacquiao are engaged in a boxing match to determine a world championship.

No losers exists among champions who engage in battle.

Train your whole life for the opportunity to achieve the goals of a lifetime.

Success comes to those who battle in life’s trenches, not afraid to risk it all for a chance to compete on the big stage.

It was discussed one of the fighters was destined at an early age to become a champion.

Mayweather stated, “I fight because I want to be the best.”

In any sport the team with the best defense is in the better position to secure the win.

Champions bring excitement to their sport from their work ethics and high energy levels.

To perform at your best continue to expand your horizons.

Move to the next level of life on your journey with gratitude for the experiences that got you where you are today.

If you can dream about what you would like to see materialize in your life, then find and travel the road that leads to the substance of those dreams.

Control your own destiny by not giving up on your dreams.

Those who do not give up will not be defeated.

Watching the boxers engaged in combat, demonstrates high levels of intensity expended by both opponents.

Having great intensity performing your tasks generates high levels of energy.

The opposite of intensity is apathy or performance at a low level.

It was Walt Disney who built an empire from his fantastic imagination.

He stated, “all our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.”

Courage moves you out of your comfort zone beyond the barriers of fear.

Another  champion of mankind, Nelson Mandela stated, “I have learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

The legacy of champions is to live life on your own terms.

Riding the waves


Riding life’s waves is done by those skilled at surfing.

Some of us have learned how to ride life’s waves on and off the ocean.

Business requires you know who you are and listen to your own yearnings to succeed in life.

You move ahead gaining wisdom and understanding.

Jonn Kabat-Zinn appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s program “Super Soul Sunday.”

His parents were a true inspiration in his current life lessons.

Mom now 100 years old is an artist, painting her entire life.

His dad was a scientist, a critical thinker.

Jonn Kabat-Zinn studied Buddhism and used it to introduce Mindfulness to the Western world.

Now in his 70s Mr. Zinn uses Mindfulness to help patients conquer what ails them through spiritual healing.

He stated, “You can’t stop the waves of the ocean but you can learn to surf.”

Some problems that come your way are bigger than you will be able to handle.

If the storms of life roll over us like the ocean’s waves we succumb to life’s storms.

Prepare for life’s storms by understanding their true nature.

A skilled surfer maneuvers across the ocean by riding the waves compared to the obstacles of life.

Turmoil and storms are components of what appears on the surface of life.

Drop underneath the ocean surface and life becomes more peaceful.

Man finds peace within himself where the most gains are made to confront life.

To increase your confront of life work on your inner man.

The power to overcome storms is found within you, your true source of power.

Zinn says to pour energy into what you do to win the upper hand in whatever is thrown at you.

The most precious moments of life should not be missed by those too busy to enjoy the beauty life has to offer.

Life is full of twists and turns that lead us down empty trails.

Remember as Zinn tells us that life won’t end if the moment is not as we desire it to be.

Have a desire for peace and well being to experience home wherever you are.

Be at peace with what you do, wherever life takes you.

Patients receive our attention and bond with us if they receive value.

Resolve a patient’s problems and you restore their ability to enjoy life’s moments.

Riding life’s waves is done on the surface but the most important work is the development of your inner being.

Watching People

Riding Out Storms
Watching People

Watching people is a spectator sport we all take part in on occasion.

Beyonce Knowles, the apple of Jay Z’s eye is watched by numerous fans.

Take time away from your 9-5 job and get lost in a sea of humanity.

Many dentists work in the niche emergency dental care KC and understand the desire to get away from our profession from time to time.

You are better able to operate in the moment taking excursions to your favorite destinations.

No matter where you go, most destinations have plenty of people to interact with and observe.

A friend is a member of a ski club and shared with our dental team how enjoyable the slopes are this time of the year.

Snow is falling early this Fall season and skiers have packed to enjoy the snowy trails and ski lifts of grand resorts.

In the office we hear tons of stories after dental patients return from extended weekend excursions.

Pictures always pull you into their story where they are available.

At one resort, guests were invited to a pajama party, the highlight of a friends vacation.

The man has been skiing since he was a child and from his conversation is an advanced skier.

Designer ski wear has come light years beyond the snow suits we were provided by our parents, back in the 50s, purchased at Sears and Roebuck Department stores.

Ski slopes make a fashion statement you would have to see to appreciate.

Ski attire makes the average individual look like a successful movie star because of fit, form and function of the garments.

Skiing is one of the most equipment intensive sports you’ll find.

You can always start with rentals to try your hand at the sport.

Gentleman don’t take pictures of America’s workforce at play after dark.

As stated you enjoy the moment and keep your wits about you, protecting the innocent, returning to ski another day.

With a vivid imagination, his comments made me feel this was one of those once in a lifetime shindigs.

Watching people at play either on the snowy slopes or at the resort party is a spectator sport.

From my readings it has been stated people will never forget how you make them feel.

In our most vulnerable times seize the moment and make others feel they are accepted by you within your space.

They may not remember the corny statements expressed, but how you make others feel is what gets remembered.

Watching people is a spectator sport we get a chance to participate in so take the time to make others feel accepted by you.

Positive Energy

Positive Energy, The Nectar of Life

Keep positive energy in your life and you will achieve the greatest of things.

There are vibrations that emanate from all of us both good and bad.

You attract what is resonated from what you say, think and react to on a daily basis.

In difficult markets dentists must maintain vigor and stamina to survive.

A KC dentist that is unable to survive the tough times  loses focus of set goals.

The roads we travel are not taken because of the hand dealt from some proverbial card game.

Your destiny is not cast in the metal of your choosing be it gold, silver, bronze or iron.

Heirlooms and museums warehouse the metal of man in all its various shapes and forms.

They are all malleable like man but because they can be hammered or pressed out of shape without breaking or cracking they outlast our life span.

What makes you malleable makes one stronger.

Men honor the great among us in metallic form but your destiny is the product of your positive energy.

Your metal is forever forged in the crucibles of life.

Life has a way of re-inventing you for the better if positive energy is infused into what you do.

We change again and again to reach our full potential.

Accept the things that make you a stronger and more productive being, shedding all that is non-productive.

Energy flows readily through the best of metals. It also is used to attract what is desired.

Become a force to be reckoned with, strong minded, not easily defeated.

Believe in yourself and know that you can win in the most difficult of circumstances.

In “The Matrix” Neo is told by Morpheus he is the one.

Morpheus tells Neo everything you have been looking for is looking for you.

Neo believed he could make a difference saving humans living in Zion from the machine world.

Believe you can come through for others and you make the world a better place.

Be bold in your living and everything you are looking for is also looking for you.

Positive energy  keeps you strong and fearless, use it to win.

Total Websites

The Great Digital Divide Total Websites

Google the total websites on the Internet and you find a site with a counter displaying and updating over one billion and counting.

It’s mind boggling to find the massive numbers with the web page stating over 75 % of websites are not active.

A dental practice is a great place for friends to share with a KC dentist their experiences on the world-wide web.

Emergency dental care has been dependent over the years on the advice of those who support our blog.

One story from a man, explains how he paid $6,000.00 for a website.

The web designer took the site for a test drive, the new owner kicked the tires, accepted the keys and waited for business to magically appear at his steps.

New owners are told all the time you must contract with a webmaster to run and provide maintenance for your new site.

The disconnect of not following this advice is similar to having a Rolls Royce or Bentley in the garage fueled, ready to go.

Another story is voiced when someone accepts a free site and lets it gather dust.

“For lack of knowledge the people perish,” scripture found in the Bible.

It is understood why so many sites are parked if we decide to go it alone on the Internet.

Many business owners remain in their coveys afraid to raise their heads because of open season on American business owners.

You can hide from Internet marketers calling from a distant state.

Local marketers who bring fresh baked cookies will flush those out in the open with a sweet tooth.

The higher the price of the keywords in PPC campaigns the better the quality of the treats.

One seminar found a marketer giving away cash to show his clients how important their business was to him.

There’s nothing like good green backs to gain the attention of potential clients.

Clients appreciate the cash and cookies if the business deal can get their phones to ring, seats filled in their restaurant, increased sales and all the other things possible that we do.

Not very many people have the capability of being all things to all people.

Web designers, web programmers, marketing specialists, social media experts, and web masters make the difference working for the greater good of a client.

When we see our clients needing services be willing to make the necessary referral to resolve issues with the phone not ringing.

Enough business is on the web for tremendous success.

Total websites will continue to increase as we all help to control our destiny.

Big and small clients Give Clients Options

Our Stepping Stones. Give Clients Options

Give clients options with value and you increase chances of making the sale.

Your best business presentation will wow potential clients and leave them speechless until they hear the bottom line.

The cost of goods and services have gone through the roof but fair and reasonable compensation is the rule of the day.

Clients who are willing to pay above and beyond reasonable compensation understand the value incorporated in what you do.

Behind what you offer is a customer service department that gets the job done.

A past experience with a used car salesman during college days taught me a valuable lesson.

Selecting a dependable car that would take me from home to school to work and back home late at night was a chore on a strict budget.

Not all used car salesman are like the one that attempted to sell me a car.

As long as a potential sale was on the table my treatment was all peaches and cream.

After the deal was in ink, shortly thereafter a problem was encountered with the vehicle.

The salesman would  not acknowledge my presence on his car lot.

Management begrudgingly resolved the problem.

We have a great opportunity to help others.

*Add value to their purchase.

*Provide extended warranties.

*Bend over backwards to stand behind what has been delivered insuring the product or service functions as it should.

In the dental field, emergency dental care must provide options to resolve suffering for the patient in crisis.

Referrals to specialists give clients options to resolve their concerns.

Sedatives minimize discomfort enabling patients to receive needed treatment.

We receive additional referrals from family and friends of the patient helped through our After Hours Care KC.

Options backed by great customer service earn income for a business that is up and coming.

Increase the potential of your business by providing options to those who buy your goods and services.

Make adjustments in daily routines to incorporate sensible choices for clients.

An increase in your budget is not always required to help those who in turn will increase your profits.

Give clients options with added value and they will grow with your business.

Is It Working For You?

Be at peace and have a great life Is It Working For You?

A question is being directed at a caller by the master of ceremony on a radio program, is it working for you?

When we suggest to others what they should be doing ask yourself this same question.

Minimalism is a discipline embraced by those who believe less is more.

One case in particular on another TV program featured two executives from Wall Street quitting their jobs to pursue normal lives through minimalism.

It appeared insane hours were their operating basis with no real private life to look forward to at home.

Giving back to their respective communities helping others found them in a better state of mind.

This discipline gets you off of life’s merry-go-round where abundance is pursued for optimum survival.

The caller is ready to return to an agrarian society where we live off the land.

The radio program this evening allowed a man to voice his concerns about why we should take a serious look at farming.

He is encouraging us to re-learn the skills of farming to survive possible economic turmoil and mayhem.

There are those among us who have humble beginnings on the farms of America and may not want to return with him to this way of life.

Hard work is a good reward within itself but choose wisely what you wish to do in life.

Living off  the land, growing and eating fresh fruit and vegetables is indeed a healthy choice.

My favorite grocer is Whole Foods with all the fresh produce one can carry.

To date their market share places them at number one in the niche health food grocery stores.

Their price points are by no means the most reasonable but great value is received from their produce and supplements.

What we do in life boils down to the question, is it working for you?

Before you offer goods and services to the public include a plan that shows some level of success on your part.

Success begets success and is required to land big accounts.

The caller hopefully has worked  in agriculture with some knowledge of farming.

Sell the public on the idea you can teach how to farm and you stand a chance to get your point across.

Potential clients see through the salesman with book knowledge yet no sales to back up what has been studied.

Application of knowledge is what starts the flow of sales.

If there is no history of sales in your portfolio then network with those who have sales at the level you desire to target.

Make your next sale by responding with a yes as to whether or not things are working out.

A KC dentist will answer in the affirmative from his major niche emergency dental care.

Can you answer in the positive when asked the question, is it working for you?
