For those who pursue the path of becoming doctors it is a long ride, filled with obstacles, loneliness, sleepiness, loss of social life and challenges that sometimes make us reconsider if we took the right path. Then the very long career followed by a longer specialization, postgraduates, masters, doctorates and the headache of getting the job. No any job, I mean “the job” we worked so hard for.
Well, looking it this way even I would not have considered becoming a doctor in the first place.
Fortunately the investment it is worth the try, definitely. But there is a catch, as always. What do geniuses and successful people have in common? Each one of them have something unique to offer to the world. That something unique is the secret to be successful, and it is easily accomplished proportionally to the level of commitment one has with their passion. When we decide to take any path in life, to do anything we want to become, passion plays a key role, because it is the force that drive us forward to make anything possible. Passion without fear is unstoppable, makes us become a high power rocket, and allow us to read people’s minds, to understand their doubts, fears, needs and problems. That way we will fix several problems at once, and trust me the world it is filled with problems.
So, if we were going to invest years of our lives (specially the best years), time that represents a sacrifice itself, with stress and the huge economic investment to be where we want to be, there is a huge need of those two very important elements: passion without fear and understanding people’s needs.
The day I made the decision of getting into the Fertility Market business by myself was the day I realized the power of those two elements, the rest of the elements came along by themselves without me looking for clues. And it was one of the best decisions ever. I knew I had the knowledge, but it was not enough without resilience. The world is filled with clever people with the knowledge to change the world with their ideas but they lack passion without fear or understanding of people’s minds, so success it is not allowed into their world.
Many years have passed and I am still waking up every morning with the curiosity to read more about my work, to keep up to date and understand the changing world. Generations have changed and the needs for fertility guidance and treatments has increased exponentially in comparison with last years, no many new doctors have decided to pursue this path and the number of fertility clinics remains steady, it has not increased in the last 5 years. Some clinics have started and not succeed because they did not get the whole idea of working into this field, to understand people’s needs.
It is a huge investment in many aspects and the return won’t be quick, along with the risk of not having good results and lacking the patient’s trust when there is a reputation to build. I went through this and it was not pleasant, but I survived because of my resilience and perseverance. Anyone can do it.
We are focusing on the new generation of future doctors, to make them realize they have something important to leave to this world. To make them see it worth the investment of time, money, and their lives to pursue the wonderful path of fertility and human reproduction. There is a lot more to be discovered and to understand. We are here for a reason, and our minds have the tools needed to accomplish success.
So welcome new generations of geniouses.
The economics of fertility are increasing as the number of patients with reproductive issues continue to rise. It is not a secret that lifestyle, food, exercise, consumption of several medications, age, etc., have an impact in our fertility. More people are becoming stressed and anxious because the world has become harder each year. So the number of patients will continue to increase, and human reproduction and fertility will become one the main fields of study. Usually the return of this kind of investment is in the first two years. It is worth the risk. Anyway what would life be if we did not have the adrenaline of risking ourselves to something new?
It is definitely a field to be explored.
