Be carful not to doubt yourself – you may miss out on things which are correct and which are just right for you. To build up your levels of trust from within yourself be well prepared for the task in front. Preparation will be profitable to you and will encourage an unravelling of your confidence upon its needed deliverance.
Ok, so what do I mean?
Take for example my bus ride the other morning. In the morning I ran from my house all the way to the bus stop, no break and running thin of breath. My one mission was to get to the bus stop and catch my scheduled bus. Upon arrival, I learned that I was about 2 minutes early but I didn’t prepare for the next part of the journey ahead. Instead I stood somewhat near the bus stop staring into thin air, as if asleep.
Furthermore, due to my unpreparedness, when I jumped onto my bus (for some reason very flustered), with a skim of a glance into my laptop bag I was unable to locate my purse. This came as a shock and resulted in me having to departure from the bus. Meanwhile, in realisation of the event which had occurred I become automatically and particularly frustrated with myself and started to slap my forehead.
However, note this, when I said ‘don’t worry (rejecting the bus journey)’ and started to back of the bus the driver said ‘are you sure?’. This was my opportunity to check my bag once more whilst on the bus, but instead I sunk myself in self doubt and missed it and said no it’s ok. It really didn’t feel ok.
Now, when I started to walk back home to retrieve my purse, in irritation I decided to double check my bag as I thought that I remembered packing my purse into my bag as I had pack my bag the night before.
This is the funny part (it really wasn’t funny), when doing this guess what, to my surprise my purse was in my bag. The very section which I looked in? Yes the very bag that I ‘skimmed a glance’ in. It was with me all along.
So what was it that I done wrong?
Mainly, I did not prepare for the next step of my journey whilst I was at a standstill, but mostly, self doubt, I didn’t believe myself and became quickly irate and embarrass. In conclusion, the situation resulted in me being out of place and playing catch up to reach my end destination on time.
Therefore, I leave you with this and close with what I started with –
‘Don’t doubt yourself and prepare yourself!’
Have a good day!!
