What’s your “state of mind” when you are really hot and doing well?

This week’s ACTION-TO-TAKE TIP: If you find you, your staff or your practice “in the dumper,” seek the “state” you all were in previously as things were really humming. Don’t let your mind rule the situation with negative feedback. Instead, rule your mind’s perception. It changes the whole dynamic.
