Comparison as a nurse - My thoughts
In the age of social media, it's easy to fall into the trap of comparison. We see our colleagues posting about their love for nursing, their energy, and their positive experiences, and we can't help but wonder, "What's wrong with me?”In this episode, we’ll address the issue of comparison in nursing careers. With the prevalence of energetic and positive nurses online, it can lead to feelings of inadequacy and questioning one's nursing career. However, it is okay to not feel the same level of happiness and fulfillment as others in the profession and we should accept our reality and stop comparing ourselves to others. By creating space for self-reflection and engaging in activities that bring joy, nurses can begin to move towards a more fulfilling nursing career.Key takeaways:0:00:17 Feeling disconnected and comparing oneself to others0:01:19 It's okay to not feel the same way about nursing0:02:37 Accepting that everyone's reality is different0:04:16 Nursing is not always rainbows and sunshine0:05:44 Nervous system dysregulation and burnout0:06:14 Stop comparing and acknowledge where you're at5 Ways we can support you in your nursing career ✅Join our Free Nurse Career Growth Hub and access our free nursing application, interview and career growth guides here!Join our Nurse Career Academy and work with us to help guarantee your next nursing role!Book a free Career Clarity Call with Liam to discuss your career situation!Join our private FB community to surround yourself with like minded nurses!Check out our Youtube Channel for more nurse career support!
Confidence vs Self Confidence
Feb 5 2024
Confidence vs Self Confidence
Confidence vs. Self ConfidenceIn this episode, I dig into confidence vs. self-confidence, a common issue among us nurses, is believing we are not confident enough to do something. I started by separating confidence and self-confidence into external and internal factors, where confidence is seen as an external validation and self-confidence comes from within.Three main factors contribute to self-confidence: trusting yourself at all times, being open to experiencing any emotion, and your thoughts about yourself.There is also a misconception that confidence comes from being competent in something, and it clarifies that confidence comes from repetition, but self-confidence comes from within.Self-confidence is not arrogance but rather trust in oneself, willingness to experience both positive and negative emotions, and managing thoughts about oneself.This episode is a must-listen for anyone looking to build their self-confidence. I provide insightful and practical tips on cultivating self-confidence, which is essential for success in any career or aspect of life.Key takeaways:03:28 - Confidence and self-confidence a common issues among people.04:48 - External and internal factors.06:54 - Three main factors of self-confidence08:10 - Self-confidence is not arrogance09:43 - Overcoming misconceptions15:53 - The importance of self-confidence18:53 - Self-confidence is your ticket to your dream job5 Ways we can support you in your nursing career ✅Join our Free Nurse Career Growth Hub and access our free nursing application, interview and career growth guides here!Join our Nurse Career Academy and work with us to help guarantee your next nursing role!Book a free Career Clarity Call with Liam to discuss your career situation!Join our private FB community to surround yourself with like minded nurses!Check out our Youtube Channel for more nurse career support!
