You’ll never entirely get rid of your legal nurse consultant fears, and honestly, I don’t want you to. Fear is an important emotion when you handle it right. Your brain is there to protect you from harm, by any means necessary. Just like nursing rules are there to protect anyone from harm.
Fear like all emotions is powerful and neutral. Your legal nurse consultant fears can work against you, causing you to procrastinate and not fully explore how to succeed in your business. Or, your fear can work for you, pointing out areas for improvement or delegation so you can keep moving forward.
What is a legal nurse consultant fear?
My definition of a fear is a negative prediction you are making about an outcome. Fear is the way your brain gets your attention and keeping you safe.
Your fears could be;
- I am no good.
- I will not get enough clients to be able to grow my business.
- I can’t stay on top of technology trends.
- Where will I find the time to do all of this?
When you encounter negative self-talk, congratulations! You are onto something great that feels risky.
Part of you is saying “no, no, no”, while your heart and brain are saying “yes, yes, yes, I’m excited about this”. That’s the tension that causes the negative prediction. They can’t both be right, right?
Best practice for moving forward with the least amount of stress and drama is to find out what would make it easier for you to say yes to whatever it is your heart desires.
In my next post, I share a simple exercise that will help you define your legal nurse consultant fears.
