Personal growth for dietitians
Well hello, my smart, sassy-mouthed dietitian.
Today I wanted to share with you something a little different.
NOT insurance-related but something EQUALLY important (if not MORE important) personal growth for dietitians.
Plus, I imagine me talking your ear off about insurance can get a little old after a while.
So let’s change the channel … time to tune to a new frequency related to personal growth for dietitians.
If you guys follow me on Instagram you know that personal growth and development are HUGE for me. So huge in fact that I think I owe a good deal of my success in my career to this aspect of my life.
While I enjoy taking courses and webinars, working with businesses coaches, and attending seminars that help support my development as an RD, entrepreneur, and coach the one thing I LOVE most is reading.
I would have to say I probably read on average one book per week.
And I am not saying this to brag. Because many of you are probably thinking if I have that type of time I should probably get another job! Seriously, Sis!
But honestly reading a book per week was NEVER my intention.
My actual intention is to JUST read 10 pages of a personal growth book per day. Anything else is a BONUS.
So each night I sit down with my book and my trusty highlighter. I pick up where I left off and go from there.
If I get to 10 pages and that is all I am feeling that night I stop. I put down the book and then I feel like I have ‘earned’ my scrolling time on Instagram.
However, some nights I might read more than 10 pages. But no matter what the day I ALWAYS do my best to get to at least 10 pages.
For me, it is the simple LITTLE disciplines like this. The productive, mundane actions repeated over time that has given me the clarity I have needed to grow my private practice beyond my wildest dreams.
Success is not a random act.
Your private practice is not the lottery. You are not all of a sudden going to wake up to a bank account full of money.
Personal growth for dietitians is ON-going. It NEVER ends. Period.
But more importantly, the truth is success is grown: it is planted, cultivated, and ultimately harvested.
It begins in our heads and moves to our hearts.
But you don’t have to be a superhero to accomplish great things.
But you do need to do something.
I want this something to be to read at least 10 pages of a personal growth book every night.
That is my challenge to you.

I want to see what you are reading.
Not a book a week.
Not a book a month.
Just 10 pages per day.
That is all I am asking of you.
If you don’t read those 10 pages will your business fall apart?
Of course, not!
What I have learned is that successful people do what unsuccessful aren’t willing to do
But what I have learned is that successful people do what unsuccessful aren’t willing to do. And being great at something like private practice is NOT predetermined.
You have full control over just how awesome your practice will become. But you need to act. You need to make a decision right now that you ARE going to be successful no matter what.
For things to CHANGE you need to change. For things to get better, you need to get BETTER. And it all starts the simple mundane tasks you do day in and day out like reading those 10 pages of a great personal growth book per day.
And if you need some inspiration of course I have a list of awesome books. Some I have read as many as 3 times. Shoot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you my list!
As I said, I think this little task of just reading 10 pages a night has really been one of THE contributing factors to my success.
It keeps my head on straight. Keeps me grounded. And provides me with the headspace I need to get shit done.
Also, don’t forget to TAG me on Instagram so I can keep you accountable, Sis!
I am so excited to see what you are reading!
