In my early career I tried so hard to do what everyone else was doing.
I passed my medical exams, got my license number and hung my shingle.
However, being a Naturopathic Doctor was different than being a Medical Doctor. There weren’t hundreds of underserved people waiting to knock down my door. I was going to have to use all those business classes I took in medical school.
So I did talks at yoga studios, school board meeting rooms and large corporate offices.
I said “yes” to treating any and every health concern people came in with. I was determined to be an amazing general practitioner and the expert on everything.
Weight loss? Sure! Prostate issues? Why not. Hot flashes? Bring it on.
And I was totally burning out.
I couldn’t handle it when things started to get busy because I would spend all of my time outside of the clinic doing extra research so I could plan the perfectly tailored treatment, unique to each person. I’d be up super-late the night before a visit doing final touches to a treatment protocol.
And then it would fall through.
The patient would always end up forgetting to show, bumping the appointment or would have a new acute condition that we needed to treat first.
I absolutely loved my beautiful profession but I wasn’t doing it my way. I was trying to do what I thought I was supposed to. Every time I met a very busy ND I’d feel bad about myself that I wasn’t doing more of what they were doing.
My conscious mind wanted desperately to have a full practice.
My subconscious mind wanted desperately NOT to have a full practice.
