I find myself in this situation often, where somebody tries to get me to “stoop” to their level. Well I REFUSE!!!!
Even though being the bigger person is tough, and the other person doesn’t always see it. It provides such a huge benefit to you. It shows you, that you have the patience, and self-control that many others don’t have. It means that when you are faced with any situation you are not taken out of your element.
Today, I had a very unfortunate situation come my way in regards to a job application. I won’t go into too many details but needless to say, it didn’t pan out how I had wanted it to. Instead of being sad or upset I decided to look at the positives of this horrible job opportunity.
One thing I know I have a hard time with is confidence when it comes to applying for jobs. I’m afraid to come across as too much, or the opposite, not showcase myself enough. Well, this time I applied over confidently! I souped up my experience(no lies, just some better wording), and I stated that it would be tremendously beneficial to have me as an employee.
Secondly, when I get to the interview part of a job opportunity I clam up and get extremely nervous. It’s like being a little kid all over again. Not this time though! I spoke with poise and integrity and made sure I conveyed my confident demeanor.
Regardless if I got the job or not. Today was hands down the greatest job application experience ever. I appreciate the fact that I can sit back and turn this unfortunate negative into a positive.
Create happiness!!! Turn that NEGATIVE into a POSITIVE!!!!
I have always wondered why the phrase, “My strengths are my weakness”, existed. I personally think this phrase can be worded both ways because my weaknesses are sometimes my strengths.
I am a very caring and giving person, sometimes too much. I often hear that this is a weakness of mine. Is it though? Is it weak to have a big heart, to be empathetic, or to care? Or is it a strength of mine that I might need to master?
Our weaknesses are our strengths, own them, and master them. I think the only weakness someone could truly have is giving up, to not live, learn, or take advantage of the opportunities given, to not strive to be the best you can be.
Have you ever found something that you are really good at or enjoy doing?
Focus on that skill or activity and put in the work!
For example, I created this blog with hopes of reaching a few people and to be able to get my thoughts out there. It has turned into something I have thoroughly enjoyed, and I find myself to be pretty good at. The phrase, ” hard work pays off”, is a true statement, and sometimes I think we let that way of thinking escape us.
