Dr. David Fabi on the value of inspiring patients and others through motivational methods
“I want to help the 7.2 billion people of this world!”, exclaims Dr. David Fabi. “Since it’s an astronomical number, it will always motivate me to do more for the rest of my life.” And it is this motivated mindset that Dr. Fabi brings to his life, to his career, to his pursuits and to all of his patients.
In today’s fast-paced world, it’s relatively easy to get derailed and frustrated. Whether it’s professionally or in your personal life, motivation is paramount. It is the reason orthopedic surgeon and motivational speaker Dr. David Fabi believes in the immense value of motivation and inspiration. Motivation is a tool that can be used by many professionals and people, in general, to successfully govern their lives and inspire those around them. It’s very reasonable for people to experience highs and lows in their day to day life. One of the essential things motivational speaking brings to the table is a compelling story that speaks firsthand about the experience with success. Dr. David Fabi has experienced the strength of finding and implementing motivation in his life and in the lives of others. He grasps the value and prioritizing providing pre and post-operative motivation to his patients. By merely saying the simple words “I am proud of you” and/or “you’re gonna do amazing”, the positive effects are profound and evident in his patients.
Helping People View Things Differently
We are often our biggest critics, and this is because we tend to focus on all the negative occurrences in our life rather than appreciating all that is positive. As humans, our mental hardwiring is frequently programmed to compare and contrast how we could have and should have done something differently in the pursuit of perfection. But this hardwiring of second-guessing ourselves can be rewired through the adoption of a positive mindset and positive input from individuals who reaffirm our self-worth. This, in turn, helps people to circumvent the burnout and frustration commonly experienced these days. Inspiring and motivating people to see things differently, especially in the workforce today, may help in the curation of new ideas and strategies that improve the culture of the workplace in general as well as overall satisfaction with work and life.
Improve Team Work with Motivational Speaking
When leading professionals such as doctors, CEOs, managers, and supervisors speak words of motivation to their team members, it can help improve a team’s efficiency and overall job satisfaction. Having a group of members that work well together means seeing more innovation and faster progress. Inspiring coworker’s this way can help build a sense of commitment and ignites enthusiasm among team members to strive to accomplish a common objective.
Helping Employees Find Work-Life Fulfillment
Outstanding motivational speakers can help others not only find satisfaction in work but in their personal lives as well. Dr. Fabi states, “I believe that work and personal life are linked. Disgruntlement with work often translates to the quality of personal life and vice versa. A suboptimal personal life can translate to the work environment. When both are in harmony, overall fulfillment with life is enhanced exponentially!” Achieving this symbiosis in life culminates in replenished energy, enthusiasm as well as further aspirations in most if not all of one’s endeavors. Further, people tend to be happier and in turn, look forward to daily challenges with increasing confidence. And the results continue to be multiplicative as stress can be minimized and therefore, the efficiency with all the tasks that work and life demands. And excellent leaders foster this type of mindset which transcends to those they associate with. Dr. Fabi fancies himself a multiplier type of leader. “The best leaders are ‘multipliers’ in that they encourage, are receptive and involve all employees and appreciate their improvement. They don’t ‘diminish’ This type of leadership can culminate in the employee working at 100% of their capacity and sometimes 110% of their capacity in that employees start doing things they didn’t think they were capable of previously!”, says Dr. Fabi.
Motivating Personal and Professional Growth
Being in a position of leadership consists of more than delegating. As Dr. David Fabi puts it, it involves touching the lives of people by inspiring them to unleash their human potential and helping them find meaning in all that that they do. Dr. David Fabi states, “I believe in the infinity of human potential. We are all capable, it is just tapping into that potential can be difficult and arduous. Like most, if not, all important things in life, realizing potential takes hard work, dedication, belief, determination, and grit.” That’s what excellent leaders and motivational speakers do. There is no single formula to help impart motivation into people. Different people work differently and find inspiration for various things and through various methods. Being an excellent motivational speaker requires one to provide sound advice that mainly focuses on achieving one’s personal and professional goals. It also requires the ability to inspire people to break through barriers and being better than you ever thought possible. As humans, we have shown that through the process of positive affirmation, we tend to feel better about whatever position we are currently in, no matter how critical or hopeless the situation is. Also, positive feedback almost always helps to change our mindset. For instance, Dr. David Fabi reports that with his patients, assuring them that they will be able to be discharged home the same day of a hip or knee replacement lays the foundation for a quicker and smoother recovery. Drawing on his motivational skills, Dr. Fabi instills in his patients that just like life, 95% of the recovery after surgery and even nonoperative treatments is mental. Oftentimes, this makes the patients excited for their surgery and other treatment options moving forward! “Conveying this to my patients raises the bar for their postoperative journey in that they can achieve recovery milestones and satisfaction much quicker than most. And not only do I hope this improves their results but also instills in them confidence that translates to their professional and personal life”, states Dr. Fabi with exuberance. That sentiment he brings to his patients and others is truly a large step towards helping the 7.2 billion people of this world!
