In over your head?
The first thing I want to say is, “Congratulations.”
I know it’s uncomfortable, humbling, and nerve wracking to be in the middle of a difficult assignment or time in your life. I know you’re going to mess it up, possibly many times, before you figure out how to do it right. I know you may be filled with self doubt as you go through the tenth revision to your initial plan.
Know what else? I know you’ll feel like a million bucks once you successfully accomplish your task. The next time you go through it will be easier. Even the next difficult task will be easier.
In addition to learning the actual task at hand you’ll gain an invaluable intangible. Confidence. Confidence is earned by overcoming a challenging situation. It’s the trust that you develop in yourself to pull through.
So be grateful for the challenge in your life, even though in the moment it can feel uncomfortable. And keep seeking challenge if you want to continue to learn and grow.
