“Stand here, bite down on the mouth piece and take a step forward,” the dental assistant said as she put me in the zippy 3D panoramic x-ray machine.  It was clear she wasn’t thrilled to be doing this since I was being seen on an emergency basis right at closing time and this was making her stay late.  I did as she asked.

The Most CRITICALLY IMPORTANT JOB for Patient/Customer Service Providers

By Linda Larsen - Wednesday, October 10, 2018

I’m a high maintenance dental patient. That’s right - a motivational speaker who is a high maintenance dental patient. It’s almost an oxymoron. But it’s true. I just think about going to the dentist and my left eye starts twitching. And what makes this really fascinating is that I am also the (self-proclaimed) World’s Most Experienced Dental Patient. Name a procedure and I’ve probably had it done - more than once. So you’d think I’d be over it by now. Yeah, right. I’m not.

I'm a motivational speakerby profession, which means my job is to help you get what you want out of life. And if I am totally honest, the fact is that sometimes I forget to actually do some of the things I have suggested to people. So on January 1st I did something for myself that I did years ago that was extremely effectively in helping me meet my goals for that year.  It's already having the same effect after only about a week of creating it.

You Gotta Love That Back Fat

I'm a motivational speaker - which means I'm going to tell you to love yourself no matter what. I even published an audio series entitled 12 Secrets to High Self-Esteem wherein I go into great detail about exactly how to do that. But here's the deal. Like all fantastic ideas that will change your life for the better, while they may be SIMPLE, they are not always EASY. In fact, this very morning I found myself looking in the mirror and snarling at my...okay, here it comes...back fat.

I am pitiful when it comes to hanging on to prescription glasses. Absolutely pitiful. In the last month I bought FOUR pair of prescription glasses. One for distance, one for reading and two sunglasses. And in the same month, I lost BOTH pair of the sunglasses - one on an airplane (motivational speakers fly a LOT!) and the other one, I think, grew legs and ran away from home. Regardless, yesterday it was time to go BACK to Lenscrafters and get another pair of prescription sunglasses. I was not happy. I did not want to spend more money. I was grinding my teeth all the way there.
