Do You Dwell in Possibility or Impossibility as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant?

In the VIP Business Development Luncheon at the CLNC® 6-Day Certification Seminar a student, Carol, shared that her cousin said to her, “How can you become a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant when you’re just a pediatric nurse?” The group booed the cousin who wasn’t there, affirming that one should never pay attention to a negative naysayer. That family member who knew nothing about legal nurse consulting was hardly qualified to dispense advice on whether Carol can or cannot succeed. But Carol was almost ready to buy into that dream-crusher’s bad and mean-spirited advice.

Sometimes it’s our friends and family who encourage us the least, possibly because when we grow and change, our relationships change too. But what was more concerning to me was that she was going to let someone else get in the way of her own possibilities.

In 1982, when I first decided to start my legal nurse consulting business, I only lived in the realm of possibility – the future was unlimited and I wasn’t thinking about all the things that could go wrong. I wasn’t thinking about attorneys rejecting me or not finding a market or any of that. Maybe I was young and naïve, and I’m glad I was, because living in the realm of possibility (not impossibility) got me where I am today.

What about you? Do you live in the realm of possibility or impossibility?

I’m just asking

P.S. Comment and share which realm you live in.

  1. I live in the realm of possibility. I am a nurse and, yes, I can do anything! After three decades of nursing, I have found there are a lot of naysayers who misplace their own fears onto others. I got a taste of how this business makes me feel valued and appreciated for what I know as a CLNC® consultant. I am also finding that during the slow time, one has to to ignore the naysayers. I live in a state where there are more cows than people, so I keep the market strategies going with Vickie’s book Flash 55 FREE Promotions – 55 FREE Ways to Promote Your CLNC® Business. I expect the possible to happen.

  2. I’m straddling the fence between the realm of possibility and the fear of the impossibility. I have such a strong “passion” and desire to become a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant that it’s almost all I think about on a daily basis. As a believer in the Word of God, I feel I’m being pulled towards doing what I need to do to accomplish the dream that Vickie Milazzo Institute’s literature, books, and website messages have given me. My worst “naysayer” is myself…

  3. Connie, you said, “The worst ‘naysayer’ is myself.”
    I remember at the CLNC® 6-Day Certification Seminar Vickie explained, “In this business as Certified Legal Nurse Consultants, we have to change our mind-set,” then she paused and looked at the crowd to let it sink in. Our mind-set I believe she is talking about, is how we as nurses have been thinking for many years… that we cannot become independently successful business owners and still be an RN. Good luck Connie; change the word Naysayer to Yaysayer, and you’ll be on the right track.
