    5 reasons that prevent eyeMDs from being happier


    4) Not spending time on personal development

    We know physicians are busy, but there is nothing wrong in taking time to read material that is uplifting and inspirational. There are countless books and seminars that address how to live a full, enriched life.

    Suffering is caused many times by only a thought or idea held in one’s head. Learn to be the author of these thoughts rather than “being thought” by your mind–automatically and usually in a looped fashion, and thinking these thoughts are who you are. Living a happy life is more of a learned art than something that just unfolds naturally.

    We have ophthalmology clients who have the exact circumstances: money, income, success, family, etc. Of these physicians, some are very happy, and some are so unhappy­ that it begins to manifest itself in their ill health.

    What is the difference between the happy and the unhappy? The happy physicians are celebrating life and appreciating everything they have. They are uplifting to be around, and you can see the joy on their faces. What separates them are the concepts they hold true.

    We can only guess it is the positive distinctions they have about themselves and life. Perhaps they have the realization that they are not their circumstances. They have freedom of choice of what to think or how they can feel.
