Thoughts for Success: The Gain of Passion Is the Passion Itself

RNs at Vickie Milazzo Institute’s CLNC® Certification Seminar sometimes confuse my passion and enthusiasm as “Vickie’s had an easy life and growing her legal nurse consulting business was easy.” They think “After all, if she’d had a hard road she wouldn’t be so chipper and have so much energy.” Trust me, my life hasn’t been easy and in no way do I believe that being passionate about your CLNC business will make your life any easier than it already is.

Passion doesn’t offer any guarantees of easy victory, easy money or easy love. Yet it’s not surprising that the passionate are almost always rewarded with more of everything life, business and love have to offer.

Thoughts for Success: Take Time for Living

Successful Certified Legal Nurse Consultants can work 24/7, but why would you want to? You launched and grew your CLNC® business to have more, not less, life! You have to take time for living, or you’ll never find it.

Thoughts for Success – Passion Is a Way of Enjoying Everything to the Fullest

I’m Italian, so passion is wired into my DNA. I’m passionate about everything I do. When passion is a way of life it gets you through the boring tasks and projects, making it easier to not give into the tedium. Yes, I’m often tempted to take a break to clean toilets or iron clothes instead of writing a report.

I don’t like everything I do in my legal nurse consulting business, but everything is so much easier when I passionately embrace it, whether I’m feeling passionate or not.

Thoughts for Success: Promises to Make to Yourself

How often do you handle emergencies at your RN job as easily as making the bed? How often do you make split second decisions that are the difference between life and death for your patients? Promise #5 reminds us that if we can do all that, for sure we can do something as straightforward as talk to an attorney and analyze medical records.

The more you succeed, the more you will succeed because you believe you can. Don’t underprice yourself or your RN expertise. Always remember, We Are Nurses and We Can Do Anything!®

Promise #4 reminds us to surround ourselves with as many successful mentors as possible. Inept coaches don’t just fail to help you, they actually help you to fail. As Vince Lombardi said, “Practice doesn’t make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect.” Practicing a bad tennis swing doesn’t improve your game. Hanging out with negative naysayers won’t grow you or your CLNC® business.

Commit to actively seek out new, challenging experiences and people who will push you to the next level. If you want to run with the big dogs, you have to run with the big dogs.

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.

Thoughts for Success: Promises to Make to Yourself

Promise #1 reminds us that we don’t have two-compartment lives – an RN life and a personal life. We only have one life. You can’t turn passion off at your RN job and go home and turn it on again – you just can’t.
