Vickie Milazzo's Thoughts for Success

Thoughts for Success: Promises to Make to Yourself

Promise #2 reminds us that the opposite of success is not failure. The opposite of success is NOT stepping out, NOT going for what you want in your life or your RN job – whether it’s legal nurse consulting, an advanced RN degree or simply going for a promotion. Every time you step out into the unknown, win or lose you succeed. You might get a rejection or two, or three, but you won’t end up at your hospital retirement party or 90th birthday party with nothing more than plain white cake, unspiked punch and regrets.


Sure, bad things can happen when we step out, but I believe worse things happen to our souls when we don’t.

I’m Just Sayin’

P.S. Comment and share how you plan to go for it.


One thought on “Thoughts for Success: Promises to Make to Yourself

  1. The description of Promise #2 to me, is willingness to step out of the comfort zone. I was going nowhere in that comfort zone. People who are successful are risk takers. Success is not always money, but what you are seeking to achieve. You may ask yourself, is it worth the risk? I say yes, it is, but you never know until you take the risk.
