Mighty Networks: Bulletproof Dental Practice


Be a person of value, I think there’s an over-obsession with an intrinsic ‘look at yourself, like ‘How can I be fulfilled?’, ‘How can I be happy?’. And when you look inside for fulfillment or happiness, you’re going to ruin the possibility of achieving it. So, it is how you become more valuable like you get what you want in life by helping other people get what they want. – Dr. Craig Spodak
