Compassion Leads to Success

 

An amazing group of young women gathered today at Colony High School, as part of an international and intergenerational leadership program called “Girls Fly,” founded by an equally amazing woman Gael Sylvia Pullen.  The topic was “kindness” and we talked about how acts of kindness develop a part of your brain that makes you more compassionate. And don’t we need more compassion in the world today!  We watched the Kindness Boomerang video to demonstrate kindness in action. And then, there was this moment while presenting, where I realized that the reason patients speak highly about what we do for them is not due to intelligence or hard work (at least it doesn’t feel like hard work). It is due to really caring. And that compassion and care comes from a dedicated practice where you choose to be kind. This translates into a level of focus that allows for the creation of treatment plans that really work.

It is simply a decision.

As Mr. Rogers said so well, ” There are three ways to ultimate success: The first way is to be kind. The second way is to be kind. The third way is to be kind.”

With great hope for the future,

Dr. Gina
