You Are Worthy
May 23 2022
You Are Worthy
Most of us are guilty of not recognizing our own worth. It’s our human nature to think that a sense of worthiness is only possible when we have more things and accomplishments. However, I’m here to prove that you are worthy right here, right now.  In this episode of High Performance Nursing, I decided to record a random talk session about feeling worthy. Have you ever had the feeling of needing to outsource your worthiness for it to be valid? I had been in situations like this when I don’t feel worthy unless I acquire certain achievements under my name. In my nursing career, I realized that our worthiness is available regardless of the circumstances we’re in. We define our own worth, it’s never dependent on how other people see us. Give yourself the permission to immerse in worthiness no matter how the world makes you feel. Keep in mind that you will never achieve your goals from a place of emptiness. You need to empower yourself and make the decision to feel worthy. WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Why do we outsource our worth? (00:55) The negative effects of setting conditions to worthiness (02:27) How does coaching help us realize worthiness? (04:15) The value of reminding yourself that you’re worthy (05:55) QUOTES:  "The only reason that you are not worthy in your mind is because of the thoughts you're choosing to think." -Liam Caswell (02:13) "The only person that can define your worth is you." -Liam Caswell (02:51) "I want to empower you to start seeing that you are 100% worthy right here, right now.

Building Wealth While Knowing Your Worth with Lauren Bell
There's no question that we all want to be wealthy. But how do you go about building wealth while knowing your worth? It can be tricky, but it's definitely not impossible.  In this week’s episode of High Performance Nursing, I have a fascinating conversation with Lauren Bell, a registered nurse who is also a consciousness coach, helping healthcare professionals in building wealth while knowing their self-worth. According to Lauren, one of the main things that get in the way of healthcare professionals achieving wealth is their own self-worth. She explains that a lot of healthcare professionals have been taught to be "givers" and not "takers." As a result, they often have a hard time asking for what they're worth or charging what they're worth. If you are a healthcare professional who wants to build wealth but doesn't know where to start, this episode is for you! You will learn how to shift your mindset around wealth and begin taking actionable steps towards building the life you want.

Bet On Yourself And Recognise Your Success
A lot of people tend to stop themselves from pursuing a big goal. We constantly hold back because of imposter syndrome and the fear of failure.  With podcasting, I’ve realised that failing can be a beautiful thing. It may be hard, but I’ve always been determined to push myself to experience the highs and the lows.  As we celebrate the 50th episode of the High Performance Nursing, I decided to record a solo episode to celebrate this milestone. A year ago, I never thought that I’d be able to publish this many episodes, but here we are. Through this episode, I encourage you to bet on yourself and recognise your success. You may have had small wins and think that they’re not substantial, but in these little triumphs we become more empowered and believe that we’re amazing beings capable of achieving whatever we want.  Remember that the only block stopping you from getting what you want is you, so step into your greatness, take massive messy strategic action and don’t be afraid to fail.  WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Why we need to stop, breathe, and reflect (01:05) The dangers of imposter syndrome (02:02) Bet on yourself and do whatever you want (03:25) Why failing is a beautiful thing (04:30) Liam’s goals for the HPN podcast (06:00) The importance of self-care (06:25) CONNECT WITH LIAM CASWELL Connect with me on Instagram PS. I have launched my signature "8 week Clinical Career Accelerator Program" to help clinicians (just like you) achieve their career goals, with confidence, clarity and mentorship from me!
