493 : Clark Gaither: Success Linked To Powerful Words
My guest today on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who believes whole heartedly in the power of words.
But not just using words that make us seem big and important.
No, he believes that the words that we should be seeking to use, are as he says in his own ways “The words which hold the most power for you are the ones which move you on an emotional level. If you and another person share the same Powerful Words, you will be connected to that person and they to you, even if they are a stranger. This book is about finding your Powerful Words and using them in whatever you do as you set out to help others in whatever capacity you choose. It is about telling your story, your personal truth. This is where your greatest influence resides.”
Now of course this concept is not new to me, or should it be for any podcaster or media person, but what about the man in the street?
What use are these to him?
Well, we find out during the show but one thing for sure today’s guest has many different occasions, on almost a daily basis where he performs as a a writer, speaker, podcast producer and personal coach for physicians and other professionals who suffer from burnout.
Also, he has enjoyed a career in medicine for the past 22 years as part of an office based family practice in Goldsboro, North Carolina, which has led him to give hundreds of lectures up and down the east coast to physicians, professional groups and the public on various topics such as physician burnout, addiction and recovery issues, hypertension, cholesterol disorders to name just a few.
So what is his passion in life?
Where does he feel that he ignites his true super talent and brings the most value to the world?
And out of all the powerful words he could choose, which would he say was his favourite?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Clark Gaither MD
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Clark Gaither such as:
How he found the path towards his future at the top of a Spanish mountain surrounded by mist, asking for clarity in his life….guess what, he found it!
How he has never felt that he fitted perfectly into the medical profession even though he was operating within his zone of excellence. The zone of genius was where he was aiming and could never achieve.
Why a letter that he found on the seat of his car changed his life forever and in such an unexpected manner that he will always call it a “Tragedy”
We discuss the six stages of professional burnout that we can all encounter, and probably have all experienced in our lives at one way or another.
Why there is nothing in our lives that we can’t achieve if we only ask for help, or pay for help when we feel that we can’t go any further.
