You know that voice in your head, the annoying one, that stands in the way of all your successes. It’s the one that tells you all the reasons you can’t, won’t, or shouldn’t. We all have it so I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. I’ve been thinking a lot about this voice recently and have noticed some important things. The voice does not work by overpowering you.

I am sometimes asked by younger folks interested in a career in medicine for advice on how they can make it through the long and grueling process needed to become a doctor. I have a few experiences from the process and made it through my self so I suppose I (or any other doctor) am a good person to ask. I think this sheds light on a very important principal in achieiving success in any field. Get guidance from people who are where you want to be. Do what they did.

I had an interesting conversation with somebody the other day that went something like this:Them: I’ve been eating more fruit lately, isn’t that good for you?
