Learning from history is a very powerful way to not make the mistakes of the past.
Dentistry is first and foremost a science practiced by healthcare teams who display the gift of compassion to remain successful.
Understand your patient base to keep your fingers on the pulse of success.
Success is more a product of your true motivations, the things you do not motivated by financial gain.
Colleagues have shared with me over the years how satisfying their excursions have been giving back to the world in other countries where their efforts are highly appreciated.
It takes a lot of confront on the part of the individual to pack up supplies and equipment in preparation to treat the indigent of the world.
Many citizens of our planet are outside the traditional healthcare delivery system.
Efforts expended in the relief of pain and suffering helping others will always lift the human spirit.
History is a great teacher if we pay attention to what has occurred in the past, be it in our own lives or the lives of others.
Study the empires of the Bible and you will find after Israel fell from power they were defeated and taken into captivity by the Babylonian empire.
Babylon fell from power and was overrun by the Medes and Persians.
After the Medes and the Persians had their time at the top, the Greek civilization rose to power defeating the Medes and Persians.
Greek civilization reigned until the rise of the Roman empire that has been reported will rise again.
You will still see remnants of the Roman empire as a separate state through the Catholic church and the European League of Nations.
The super power of the current age is America that has existed through two major world wars.
We listen to the economists of our age that tell us because America is a democracy it is the weakest of all the empires.
Take the time to study modern day economics to ride out the coming economic storm just over the horizon in view by experts of our day.
It is written in prophesy all empires come and go. Not one will stand the test of time because of the foibles of mankind.
The world is in need of all citizens who understand their true test in life will come because of their true motives to help others.
Learning from history will direct and guide us in the worst and best of times.
