The Banter Of Fear

FearFear.

It is the one things stops most of us from speaking up, sharing, and putting ourselves out there for the world to notice.

Millions of times a day the banter of fear fills us with doubt, questions, and second guesses.

It isn’t the fear of failing, it is the fear of being unique, individual, and being seen that inhibits us.

In a world of ordinary, each of us has the ability to choose to be extraordinary.

When we choose to share our art, it means sharing who we are with the world.

It means putting ourselves on the hook to have an opinion, a point of view, and to believe in something.

I believe in connecting various dots in new ways to provide meaningful change for patients, providers, and the rest of the healthcare stakeholders.

It all begins and ends with the patient.

Be unique, be individual, and be seen by connecting with one patient at a time.

I would personally like to thank my friend Nikki Marie for the inspiration for today’s post. A reminder that her voice, as well as all of ours is exactly what the world needs.

  1. Right right and right again! This right here: “It means putting ourselves on the hook to have an opinion, a point of view, and to believe in something.” Like we were saying in our LCSM chat the other night and what I wrote after that chat…from a patient side, don’t be afraid to ask questions to delve deep and do more research when an HCP tells us something. Patients aren’t as afraid when their HCPs take the time to connect with them. They feel more comfortable when their doctors aren’t afraid to tell them what they need to hear.
