Money. Estimates. Treatment Plans.
Many of us dread these client conversations.
Given the opportunity to pass the task to someone else, we gladly will.
The entire encounter can create extreme anxiety.
Have you ever wondered why?
What is about money conversations that put us on edge?
The answer: the unknown
We don’t know how the clients will react to our proposed plan of treatment.
We don’t know how the clients will react to the cost associated.
We assume they will react badly.
We are afraid they will become angry.
And when they do, we somehow think it is our fault.
Money is neutral.
Dollar signs, and everything else on that piece of paper is just neutral.
None of it means anything alone.
Emotion only comes from one place… our very own thoughts.
Our emotions are not created by the actions (or reactions) of others.
So when clients have a negative reaction to a treatment plan and cost estimate you’ve presented, and then you feel frustrated about it… that’s all on you.
That feeling of frustration is coming from what you are believing about the client and the situation in that moment.
Similarly, the words the clients speak and the actions they take while evaluating your treatment plan and cost estimate are not caused by the estimate.
The client’s actions and words are simply in response to their own emotions… and those emotions are created by their own thoughts and beliefs…
The estimate is still neutral.
It’s great news, because it means you can decide in advance how you want to feel before, during and after the money conversation… and generating that emotion is totally within your control.
Curious about how all this works?
I explain even more in my Free Webinar.

It’s time to stop allowing our happiness and mental health to be at the affect of things we can’t control… in the webinar I’ll show you how.
What defines you?
What determines your value?
Who decides your self worth?
Most of us have never considered these questions.
Day-in, day-out we just keep going and doing.
We uphold our responsibilities.
We meet our obligations.
We show up… or at least someone does.
But, is it you?
It probably was at some point.
But is it still you?
Many of us find ourselves looking up one day and wondering, “How did I get here?, How did this become my life?”.
It happens gradually, through the going and doing and going and doing.
We stop recognizing the choices we make every day as habit sets in.
And then one day we look up… and we don’t like what we see.
This is not the life we wanted… but we stopped carving our own path along the way, and here we are.
Is this what defines you?
Does the state of your life in this current moment determine what comes next?
Is this a reflection of you value and self worth?
Not even close.
Everything before today is over. It exists only as a memory.
Everything in the future has yet to be. It exists only as a dream.
Today is real. Today you can decide what comes next.
Today you decide how you will be defined.
All those reasons why you can’t have the life you really want… those are just excuses.
It’s time to let those go.
Decide for yourself… bravely.
Your value is absolute.
You are worthy simply because you exist.
What comes next… that’s for you to decide.
You will be defined by something…
How about you decide.
Feeling totally stressed out with life and VetMed, and not sure even how to take back control? Join my free webinar where I share tips on managing anxiety and creating the life you love.
What do you believe?
Beliefs are just sentences that we’ve thought so many times that we now accept them as truth.
What’s really interesting is that many of our beliefs don’t even come from our own thoughts!
They come from sentences we were introduced to through parents, schools, churches, etc.
Questioning our beliefs is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves, because often we are holding on to beliefs that don’t actually benefit us.
This is definitely true in VetMed.
I’ve identified FIVE Common VetMed Belief Errors that hold us back from having joyful lives and careers, and I shared them during a Facebook Live Event. To listen, CLICK HERE.
Here’s the truth… the way that we feel on the inside is created by our own thoughts and beliefs, NOT by the things that happen around us.
If you want to take back control of your life, you’ve got to start by taking control of what you’re thinking about.
