Recently I wrote about what it takes to overcome legal nurse consultants’ fears. You can learn to live beyond fear. That is a phrase I like to use to describe what you can do to put the specter of fear behind you in your personal and professional life.
Fear is common in our lives. It is so common that a few years ago there was a very popular television show called “The Fear Factor.” This show made contestants perform various stunts that were designed to make them face various fears that most people have. It was a fun show and had a good run before it came to an end.
Learn About How to Overcome Legal Nurse Consultants’ Fears
As I stated in my earlier blog no one is fearless. We all have fears. Being educated about fear is the first step to learning how to live beyond fear. By learning about fear a person becomes more comfortable with the idea that fear happens. There is nothing wrong with that. But in order to really succeed you need to recognize when fear is having an impact on your performance, productivity and personal satisfaction.
The Three Es of How You Overcome Legal Nurse Consultants’ Fears
Learning more about what fear is, why we have it and how it shows up in your life will help you move to the next step. There are basically three steps that will help you overcome your fears. I call them the three E’s. Educate, Explore and Expand.
In my last post I talked about the “Educate” step. Now let me tell you why the next step is “Explore.” Once you are able to understand what fear is and why you have it you will be able to immediately recognize when it is in play in your life. That first step is very important. Once you are able to recognize your fear reaction you are able to explore what it is you are really fearing.
Most of the fears we have are created in our own mind. Of course, we all fear certain things. Most of us have a fear of being in a burning building. That even applies to firefighters. But firefighters are trained to recognize the real dangers. They acknowledge their fears and then are able to react appropriately.
The fears I work with my clients about are those fears that they face in their lives on a daily basis. In the workplace people fear many things. These can range from not performing to acceptable standards to not being liked by your fellow employees. And these fears can have just as much effect on your performance as any other fear. When you overcome legal nurse consultant’s fears you are stronger in marketing, closing the sale, and satisfying your clients.
People also have fears that impact their personal lives. I cannot stress enough how these two areas of your life are connected. You cannot compartmentalize your personal and professional life, no matter how hard you try.
My clients and I work to identify what the real fear is in each situation. Many times the fear is just a product of what you imagine might happen. Or it could be the results of an erroneous interpretation of an event or situation. Your fear holds you back from being successful in your business.
It is important to work through these fears. The help of an expert in this field cannot be discounted. To really explore the fears you are facing takes the help of someone with a different perspective who is trained in exploring fear.
We all want to be successful. You will never reach your full potential until you really understand how fear is holding you back. These three E’s are the foundation for learning how to live beyond fear. In my next post I will tell you about the third step which is “Expand.”
Wayne Schoeneberg is a trial attorney who has conquered his fears. As a trial lawyer fear is always with Wayne and his clients. There are few places, short of actual combat that generate fear like a courtroom. Everybody is afraid. The litigants, counsel, the jury panel and even the judge. The gravity of the situation weighs over the courtroom. This is a real event in the lives of real people. Nobody wants to make a mistake. That fear keeps a lot of lawyers out of the courtroom. In order to be a successful legal nurse consultant you must learn how to identify when fear is affecting you and find out how to overcome legal nurse consulants’ fears.
