Inspirational Quote – Trust yourself
Action Step – I think the most important thing is to be aware of what we are doing and what we are experiencing. When we realize that we are getting emotional about something, we can at least take a 3 second pause and 3 deep breaths. This will change the physiology in your body and in your mind, and you can start decompressing what was otherwise building up.
You can reverse the direction of the emotions by taking those three deep breaths, which allows you the moments that you need.
Major Life Lesson – I became a doctor to help people and that meant sacrificing my career to help people. I’m willing to make that change in trade because at the end of the day, I’m here to be a doctor to help people.
- Best Advice – Trust yourself, believe in yourself.
