Dr. Brad Bellard (aka Dr. Brad)
Before we continue I’d like to take some time to share my story, primarily to provide you with some insight as to why I created Dr. Brad MD LLC and Elite Performance coaching. I am a double-boarded Sports medicine physician and former assistant team physician to the NBA Dallas Mavericks. I am also a regular guest on the Dallas ESPN 103.3FM radio show, Inside Sports Medicine. I have successfully run a direct sells business with over 1,200 customers, and I am currently the CEO of Bellard Enterprises and Dr. Brad MD, a best-selling author, sought- after keynote speaker, performance coach, husband to a beautiful wife, and father to three awesome children.
However, about three years ago, despite all the outward success, there was one thing I couldn’t deny when I looked in the mirror: I was not living the best version of me. There were a couple things that contributed to this reality. (1) I was underachieving. I wasn’t performing up to my potential. Yes, I had successfully achieved my professional goal of becoming a physician and business owner, but I was playing small and had gotten used to my ‘comfort zone’. By most people’s standard I was doing pretty good, but I knew that my own standard of excellence was not being achieved both personally and professionally. I knew wasn’t the best Christian, husband, father, doctor, business owner, and healthy individual I could be. (2) Second, and at the same time, I wasn’t fulfilled. I vividly remember being at home alone preparing to work another 24hr ER shift. I felt stressed, overwhelmed, and dissatisfied knowing I was heading to another monotonous shift where I would be overworked, unfulfilled, and consistently have much less impact than I anticipated as a physician. I wasn’t fulfilling my real purpose.
I remember thinking “Did I make the right career decision?” In the middle of getting ready, I broke down on my knees, tears in my eyes, my head buried in my hands, and I cried out loud, “Is this it?! God, it’s just got to be better than this!” I was trying to figure out how I’d done all this work, spent all this money, put in all this effort, toward my professional success and still feel unfulfilled. I remember thinking, “Success is not supposed to feel this way!” I was fed up and tired of not living the best version of me! Therefore, I decided to change and three things: (1) my willingness to learn and receive coaching (2) an understanding of the importance of my mindset and beliefs, and (3) taking action.
As a result, my life changed from underachievement and lack of purpose and fulfillment, to all-time highs in goal achievement, and happiness both professionally and personally. My transformation has allowed me to experience more success in my medical practice, the discovery and pursuit of my purpose (which you are now experiencing), and increased performance in multiple areas of my life. So now I am here to create the exact same transformation in you. It is my purpose, and moral obligation to pay the blessing forward; to serve as your success guide to higher levels of both professional success and personal fulfillment so you can experience the best version of you!
