What's going well?

According to thought leader Greg Bell, that's a question you should ask yourself every morning before your feet hit the floor and every evening before you go to sleep. Bell claims even "negaholics"--those who are addicted to being negative--can find something going well in their lives. This concept is just a small part of what Bell discusses in his popular talks about business and personal success; and one of those talks will take place at AAHA Tampa 2015's Opening Session.

Greg Bell's inspirational keynote address at AAHA Tampa 2015 will focus on his "Water the Bamboo" approach to success. Giant timber bamboo farmers will take a bamboo seed and water it for 3 full years before they see anything happen. But once the giant timber bamboo finally touches the surface, it will grow more than 90 feet in 60 days--that's a foot and a half a day.

The astonishing speed and strength at which the bamboo eventually grows only comes as a result of the bamboo farmer faithfully watering the bamboo over time until it can establish deep and resilient roots. To experience growth, we must first nurture the qualities of patience, courage, self-discipline, persistence, and belief.

Bell will inspire you to re-examine your personal and professional dreams while creating value for others in the workplace and beyond. Whether you're a front-office team member, veterinary technician, associate veterinarian, practice manager, or practice owner, this presentation will demonstrate how adopting the mindset of the bamboo farmer can transform your life and those around you in amazing ways.

Enjoy Bell's keynote address at AAHA's Opening Session, Thursday, March 12, at 10:00 a.m.
