OUCH… week 9 and my gums are EXPLODING!..
Hi, and welcome to week 9 of my journey around the UK, Europe and the World.
This week was a little bit different.
Instead of the happy array of pretty pictures and pleasant surroundings, I flew out to Budapest to get some treatment for my aching teeth. I was in search of a Toothful Nirvana, but got 5 days of pain. None the less, I have begun my journey to have my mouth transformed and hopefully my smile will return.
You might be thinking, why did I go all the way to Hungary for the treatment. Very simple, cost, PLUS, the standard of Dentistry in Hungary is second to none.
So, I’ve completed my first treatment, I had 5 implants, 3 root canals, one sinus lift and a tooth from the front row removed. The next stage is to come back in June of next year to have the teeth, crowns, and bridges fitted, hopefully returning my face back to a smiling one..

BOOM!… here is a quick video I shot in Budapest from the top of the Budapest Eye. This is a fairly new landmark in Budapest and arrived only recently in March of 2017..
P.S Forgive the poor quality, my face was aching and my mind was elsewhere..
After a few days of treatment, I could see how this relates to people who struggle with things every day. Progress, or trying to progress does not come easy to most people as we are constantly programmed to stay the same and “fit in”. Each step toward a goal can be very painful (like the dentist), but as we take each painful step, the pain lessens as we progress..
Here’s my very philosophical video, taken from my hotel room at the Danubius Hotel Arena
So, what did I learn this week. Simple, progress is pain. Each painful step is another step nearer to your goal. This week represented anew beginning for my teeth, but each and every week, I will take a new and painful step toward another goal. This is the key to success in anything.
KEY: You can’t move forward in life, business or relationships if you just stay the same. It takes courage to branch out, get noticed and introduce change into your life. Be brave, don’t fear the pain, don’t fear failure.. it’s only temporary. Success is around the corner if you are brave enough to “go for it”.
Until next time…
I wish you peace and happiness. If you got value from this post, please share and comment. Thanks
