I am now the creator of the Physical Therapy Builder Academy which was released weeks ago. I want to talk about this series a little bit. I have four online courses. In my videos, I am showing people how I became successful in Physical Therapy. Four years in a row I have had a million-dollar company. I am 38 years old and have been a PT since the age of 23. I have owned my clinics since I am 27. I am sharing every one of my tricks and tips. I have no fear giving my secrets away because you still have to execute them. I will be traveling to San Francisco for consulting this weekend. I have a twelve-hour day on Monday and then heading to the Bahamas with my wife.
Today My cousin put something on Facebook that said, “Birds of a feather, flock together, but Eagles you have to find, one at a time”!
I said, isn’t that the truth! I am no bird! You should not be a bird! If you are trying to change the game and be different, you cannot flock with everyone else. Leaders have focus, vision, determination. They have will and they have drive. The simple fact is most people aren’t driven, so you can’t always flock with everybody else.
Do you understand what I am saying? Sometimes you just have to ride it out the way you want to ride it out. I have been fighting with myself about doing those courses for years. I have been working two days a week and my company has been constantly growing over the last five years. I have been building my company the non-traditional way and not relying on Physicians. I have been using my blog and my website; physicaltherapist. pros and renewalrehab.com and gregtoddpt.com. Check them out. We have been talking about this stuff for six or seven years. Just because everyone else doesn’t do it like that, I have been on my own. I know that people needed this and finally I got out of my own way and said I am just going to do it. The truth is, I have no one to flock with. No one is doing it like this in Physical Therapy or building it like this in Physical Therapy. I am on my own. I had to get the focus, determination and drive to say even though no one is doing it like me and most Physical Therapists are struggling, I have to have the courage to do this.
I have a lot of people happy for me, but I am also going to encounter haters. I will encounter those people that flock and say they don’t do it like me, so therefore he must not be the real deal. The point is if you want to do something special; you are going to have to break away from the pack. I know there are people that may work somewhere or be somewhere where people will flock in and they are going nowhere fast. You have to break off.
In 2004, I was working for a corporation and I had to break off. This is where I am now. Those people that were flocking are still flocking together at the same job. At this point I am flocking where things are good. This is my point to you all, “Birds of a feather, flock together”. Don’t be a bird, be an eagle.
