You cannot be good at your job if you are not first confident that you have the skills and knowledge to complete the tasks assigned to you with excellence. I struggle with this a lot but it truly shows on days that I chose to be confident in what I can do and those days that I get flustered and only can see what I am doing wrong. You can do it, be confident you have the skills!
You can do it! You have the tools within you to achieve what you want. It may seem like a steep mountain to climb and like you are only chipping away a little bit, but each little chip adds up. Soon you will be at the top looking down at all you have accomplished. Have faith in yourself and trust your abilities. You are better than you think.
Breath, relax, keep going!
Starting a new job or internship somewhere unfamiliar? It’s easy to feel like you are an outsider or a “guest in someone’s house” for the first couple of weeks. You aren’t sure what is the correct protocol, everything is really formal, and you might not know many people. But that’s okay! Everyone needs their own time to adjust to a new place, new co-workers, and new bosses. Here are a few tips for transforming from feeling like a guest to being right at home!
These are just a few tips to go from house guest to right at home! As you work through your new job or internship you will find even more ways to leave your mark! Good luck!
Hi! I hope everyone is having a great week!
Here’s my thankful list for the week:
-I am thankful I got a dream job at a dental office! I am so so excited!
-I am thankful my little sister is home and we are getting to hang out!
-I am thankful I am healthy and don’t have any major medical problems
-I am thankful for summer sunshine
What’s on your thankful list today?
Get up and move around! It’s good to take a walk or a lap around the office to recharge and re-energize for the rest of the day! Scientifically, it’s beneficial because when we move around we get more oxygen to our brains and this helps us focus better! So put your mouse, phone, pens, or what have you down and take a chance to enjoy this beautiful spring day (or the lovely fluorescence of your office space!)!
As a soon to be college grad I can tell you one thing that has been haunting my dreams since August, change. The unknown has always had a profound grip on my nerves. I don’t like it but as I have gotten older, I have tried to accept it to the best of my ability.
It’s interesting how four years ago I planned a little life out for myself about how things would go and where I would be in four years. Standing at the end of my college career four years later, it is very different from where I thought I’d be. Some of my plans didn’t work out, some I am still trying to attain, and others (the glorious few) have far exceeded my expectations of what I thought I could accomplish.
As of now, I am not sure what the future holds, I still have my big goals of what I need to do and where I would like to be. It’s just going to be hard to leave Virginia Tech and the comfort of going to classes, sorority meetings, and being surrounded by mountains and Hokie stone. It’s hard to settle with the fact that this time next year I will not be sitting in the Biology Building stressing over classes. It’s even harder to settle with the fact that I have no idea what I will be doing this time next year.
But even though I have these feelings I have to look forward to the future, I have to look change in the eye and say “okay what’s coming next.” Because we can’t just sit around and lament on the past, we can’t become trapped in wishing we could go back in time and do it all over again. We have to look for the future and see what’s in store for us there, because that is where we all are headed, ready or not.
Sometimes getting a “No” is just what you need to light a fire in your soul and keep you on a determined path to reach your goal. No doesn’t mean give, up it means try harder. You’ll get there.
