Story Vs Fact – Nursing Your Mind

Considering the overwhelming nature of our career as nurses, it’s normal to have a mind full of competing stories and thoughts, sometimes, its really hard to see what is story and what is fact! If you are feeling like your brain has you running round in circles, good news your human!

In this episode, I discuss how our brain works and how we must actively distinguish facts from stories to take back our power and manage our mind for life and career success!

From Burnout to Abundance with Michelle Gordon

Burnout and overwhelm have almost always been a certainty in the nursing industry. Despite our training to care for our patients, we aren’t necessarily equipped to deal with and manage burnout as a nurse. We are joined in this week’s episode by the wonderful nurse Michelle Gordon, founder of the Health and Happiness Formula and the Healthy Happy Nurse! We talked about her fantastic experience exploring oneself, developing self-awareness, and navigating through burnout and overwhelm.

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.

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.

A lot of people tend to stop themselves from pursuing a big goal.

From the moment you start your training, you are on a journey that will test your resolve, time and time again.  There are many hours of studying and hands-on experience that is required before one can even be considered for the profession. But it is a journey well worth taking, as the job comes with a different sense of satisfaction.  In this week’s episode of High-Performance Nursing, I had an interesting conversation with Julie Blackburn, who brings a combined 30 years of expertise in these fields to her training sessions. Her main areas of interest include education, women's issues, fathers' involvement in pregnancy and delivery, family health, and preventing domestic abuse. According to Julie, being a midwife student is a lot like always trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together and figuring out what is going on with the patient. The skills required for the job are vast and diverse.  Becoming a midwife is not an easy task. It takes years of hard work and dedication to master the skills required for the job. But for those who are up for the challenge, the reward is great. The satisfaction that comes with helping to bring a new life into the world is truly unmatched.

6 Steps Framework To Get Career Clarity

If you're feeling lost in your career, or like you're just not quite sure what you want to do next, don't worry - you're not alone. Many people feel this way at some point in their lives. The good news is that there are things you can do to get clarity on what you want and where your career is headed.  In this episode, I am going to show you a 6-step framework to get career clarity and start moving forward again. You've probably had moments where you've asked yourself, "What am I doing with my life?"  It can be hard to figure out what we want to do and even harder to know how to get there. But without a clear idea of what we want to do with our lives, it's difficult to make progress towards our goals. One of the biggest reasons for this is that without career clarity, we can't set effective goals. We might have vague ideas about what we want, but without a specific target in mind, it's tough to know what steps we need to take to get there.  Without career clarity, it's also difficult to stay motivated; after all, if we don't know what we're working towards, it's hard to see the point in our efforts. WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Step 1: Get Curious About Yourself (3:17) Step 2: Learn to Observe Your Thoughts (7:01) Step 3: Conduct a Career Assessment (10:50) Step 4: Network (12:55) Step 5: Sample and Experiment (14:53) Step 6: Build a Professional Career Brand (17:31) 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!

Gain Your Power Back with Nurul Norzahari

Nurses know that they have a passion for helping and taking care of others, but knowing this is never enough to get them through the difficult times. Even before the whole pandemic situation, one may see some nurses losing enthusiasm for their work. In this episode of High Performance Nursing, I chat with the fabulous Nurul Norzahari. She is a Registered Nurse, Personal Trainer, and the Founder of FitNurseCo. Her 10 years of combined work experience has been moving and motivating health professionals for the benefit of their well-being Nurul is here to talk about how nurses can gain their power back. To do this, she advises nurses to truly know themselves, assess their emotions, and write their goals. Nurul also showcased the importance for nurses to understand deeply their why.  Nurses should know how to take back power over their lives and don’t let a stressful work or person control them. As a result, their mind and body reach homeostasis and their personal and professional lives become more aligned. They become motivated to do well in their careers, and they greatly appreciate who they are outside work.  WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: What led Nurul to RN and PT work?

Creating Your Intentional Life with Beth Montano from Autonomic

In this episode of High Performance Nursing, I speak with the amazing Beth Montano. She is a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Medical Oncology and the CEO & Founder of Autonomic.  Beth has over 12 years of nursing experience and through Autonomic, she’s on a mission to help nurses to love their work. It’s no secret that working as a nursing professional or in most healthcare industries is extremely tiring and nurses experience burnout and constant stress. For nurses to love their work, it’s essential to go back to basics and reflect on what they want from nursing. It starts with what Beth coined as RCA - require, change, and accept. Nurses should assess what they require from their work, the changes they want to happen, and the things they have to accept. Some nurses also feel stuck because they’ve made their careers their entire identities. For Beth, being a nurse should only be a part of your identity and not the entirety of it. Beth also advises nurses to constantly seek both formal and informal support in times of stress. This not only helps their well-being but also has a positive influence on their work performance.  In times of crisis like this global pandemic where the demand for healthcare is high, nurses might question if they really love their work. However, with the right support and mindset, nurses can create an intentional life where they stay true to their passion and commitment to taking care of others and themselves. WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Beth's career to date (01:25) Her life-changing experiences in India (02:50) A day in a life of Beth as a clinical nurse specialist (11:55) Beth's advice for nurses who are holding themselves back (14:50) The history of Autonomic (17:09) The changes Beth would implement in the nursing profession (23:03) Love Your Work (25:05) Beth's recommendations to nurses managing current stress (30:45) Rapid-fire questions with Beth Montano (32:49) CONNECT WITH BETH MONTANO Connect with Beth on Instagram and Facebook  Visit Beth’s website 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!

4 Non-Typical Ways to Find Your Next Nursing Role

In this solo episode, I had a quick talk on the 4 key areas nursing professionals need to explore during a job search. Typically, nurses would only use one platform when it comes to seeking opportunities and I would often get asked where is the best place to look for jobs. What nursing professionals don’t realise is that there are lots of opportunities out there, they just have to create them. Nurses would usually use cold email outreach and look for jobs in ways they are familiar with  - going to local health district’s websites, Indeed, Glass door, and sending applications online. Other ways to send applications include using the connections you’ve made in previous work or even in undergraduate training, going after your dream nursing role, and partnering with healthcare recruiters. When you tap into these non-typical ways to find a nursing opportunity, there’s a huge possibility that you’ll come across off-market jobs which are not available if you simply just do an online search.  Broaden your job opportunity horizon by using out-of-the-box ways, and you might just end up getting the role you’ve always dreamt of.  WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Cold market outreach (01:12)  Warm market outreach (01:59) Ideal role outreach (03:33) Recruitment outreach (06:12) 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!

Aesthetic's Nursing & Nursepreneurship In The UK with Charlotte Reynolds

In this episode, I had a fun and informative talk with Charlotte Reynolds, who has been a colleague back in the UK. She is an ICU nurse and a nurseprenuer at the same time with her very own aesthetics clinic. Charlotte had years of experience as an ICU nurse until she gave birth and realized that she needed to do something different. And that’s where the aesthetics clinic started.  At first, she was afraid of venturing into something she wasn’t really familiar with. She is afraid of what other people will think or if she can really make it until she learns to care less about others' opinions.  In this episode, Charlotte also shares what it was like to be an ICU nurse when the COVID-19 pandemic started. According to her, the hardest part was seeing other people suffer and not having a definite plan to handle the situation.  On the brighter side, she says they got the support they needed in such tough times. The hospital that she has been working at has helped her cope, especially on the emotional side, with everything going on around.  To sum it up, Charlotte, like any other nurse in the world, wants to do something different at some time too. Working in the hospital can be draining, and that's when nurses start to look for options. And there’s nothing wrong with it, actually. After all, nurses are still humans who need an outlet to destress and find another path at the same time. WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Charlotte’s nursing journey (01:45) What is outreach nursing services in the UK look like (04:05) How Charlotte discovered a new path (09:07) What it's like to be a nurse during COVID (12:02) Charlotte’s experience as an ICU nurse (17:05) How Charlotte established her aesthetic business (22:15) What it was like to take the first payment in Charlotte’s business (24:50) Charlotte’s advice to those who are planning to start an aesthetics company (28:12) Charlotte’s definition of high-performance nursing (31:00) Charlotte's advice to health workers who are planning to do something different (36:35) What keeps Charlotte going (40:00) CONNECT WITH CHARLOTTE REYNOLDS Connect with Charlotte on Instagram and Facebook  Visit Charlotte’s http://www.charlottesaesthetics.com 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!

Burnout No More For Healthcare Professionals with Athol Hann

In this episode, I have a fascinating conversation with Athol Hann. He’s a Clinical Emergency Nurse, Founder of AtholTech, and fwards app and known for his Burnout No More courses. Athol experienced first-hand what burnout feels like for healthcare professionals and started questioning if he can stay with his profession in the long run.  Surprisingly, he wasn’t aware that he was experiencing burnout until he had hateful feelings towards work. He went from someone who loves the nursing profession to someone who hated it.   All the little stress in the workplace piled up, and he knew that something needs to be done otherwise he might end up harming himself or others. He eventually developed a process that allowed him to better deal with burnout and this gave rise to the Burnout No More Courses. He encourages nurses to tune in with themselves, write journals and ask for colleagues’ help.  Nurses share the same stress and problems in the workplace, it’s a powerful strategy to learn how others are coping with burnout. They have to realize that they’re not alone and doing so helps boost their morale and guides them out of the burnout pit.  WHAT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN THIS EPISODE: Athol's journey into his nursing profession (01:41) Advantages of going against the traditional nursing route (05:38) How he built the fwards app (08:08) Realizations that led to fwards development (13:59) Athol's biggest lessons from his tech venture (16:25) How did non-clinical training help Athol's clinical practice (20:50) How Athol handled his burnout phase (24:37) The Burnout No More Course (30:25) Rapid-fire questions with Athol Hann (32:18) Resources:  Beating Stress and Burnout - with Elaina Mullery and Lauren Bell From the bedside to the Boardroom, how uPaged founder Zara Lord is modernising on demand work in Australia!

It might have been confronting for most of us, but it was so nice to just be there and see how much everyone had grown and developed as individuals. We make new year's resolutions on a regular basis. But what I've realized is that when we make resolutions, we tend to focus on what we haven't accomplished or done yet. In this episode, I wanted you to consider what you are proud of in your life. What did you accomplish in the year 2021? Let us begin the year with gratitude and pride in what we've accomplished thus far. The past year has been challenging for us as a health care clinician. We've been so busy that we've forgotten to pause, practice gratitude, and celebrate our accomplishments. As we begin this year, I want you to pause and reflect on your journey, no matter where you are. Allow yourself to sit in the joy and happiness of the present moment. Let us choose to begin this year with great pride!
