In the end, being able to face my fears head on, I was able to be alone with just my children and I in our own place. It has forced me to be successful in making my own decisions and become confident in them. My success is that I can go to school now, work a part-time job, have help at home with our children and the household duties. It may not seem like much to most but to me overcoming the small fears have led me to believe that I can overcome any obstacle that comes our way, together, as a team. Yes, I went through a difficult divorce at a hard time in life.
College also transformed me into a positive, outgoing and optimistic person. I also learned how to not focus so much on myself, but apply my skills to my surroundings. I have attained my ability by asking questions when I do not understand a particular issue that is valuable because learning things every day prepares me for a better career ahead. Going to college I have gained confidence in myself and am able to participate in many events at
These three lessons were derived from many favorable and unpleasant experiences. Adaption, as it appeared, was the true key to finding success. I adapted and acquired new-found respect for personal responsibility, innovation, and ambition. This enabled me to expect more out of myself and ultimately, more out of those around me. My teachers enhanced my shortcomings, while bolstering strengths by deliberate, attentive guidance.
My BHAG is “For my loved ones and I to be genuinely happy and healthy, financially successful, have strong faith in God, and to ultimately enjoy what life has to offer.” Although this may be difficult to achieve that’s what motivates me to exert effort in all I do. I have my strengths and weaknesses and I have learned to accept that. In terms of communication I always want to improve and be more confident when speaking in front of a crowd or when meeting new people. Whenever I encounter those situations I tend to get nervous but I always try to deliver my best. In my opinion this is still a weakness of mine because I have yet to gain confidence in myself and with more practice I believe I can improve my communication skills.
Also this interview has helped me formed a better way to approach life and it will help me through though times in life because It will remind me that every rough patch or time of struggle is just a phase and part of life, and it will help me to overcome any problems that I might think are too big for me to handle. And as a result of the interview I feel like I have acquired a bonus of knowledge that I would have had to experience before I understood the
I would make the adjustment with how open people view I am by sharing stories about my numerous travels and signing up myself for opportunities that include peers or colleagues whenever they come up. This will hopefully change my peers, coworkers, and acquaintances viewpoint on me being a conservative person to one that knows how to live life and is always up for a conversation or experience. Even though I am introverted, in public situations I tend to let the extraverted side of me come out as I know it makes me appear more friendly and easygoing. As a result, most people view me as more extraverted than I truly am. I won’t change this mismatch as it assists me professionally since a person would rather work with someone that actively communicates their thoughts, than a coworker that prefers to be just in their head during meetings, conferences, projects, etc.
My husband and I are so used to actively giving and receive feedback. We no longer take this personal. We have come to a point to understand that this helps us in the manner we deal with issues and communicate as a family unit. I still need to implement this in my career and I think it will take a bit of time because I am still working on the feedback I received during the program. It opened my eyes on things that I need to work on.
How did self-evaluations impact your self-awareness? The evaluations brought so much to light. Over the years I have become more comfortable with self-assessments. However, on thing I have discovered along the way as I have grown is that looking within yourself requires thick skin. The benefit of self-assessments is having a strong knowledge of not only my strengths but my weaknesses and being able to share those weaknesses with those you work with builds trust.
This all made me realize that trying out new experiences is nerve wracking, but it does bring changes in our life and maybe it help us to be the person we are right now. Most of the time is worth trying new experiences when you have friends and family supports. For me, my family and friends have always guided me. That’s the reason this move away from my family is not that bad when we often reunite during breaks and technology like FaceTime had help me to stay connected. In Addition, the little changes do help to learn new lessons of life.
I feel comfortable expressing myself and being who I truly am. Interacting with others and attending different classes has made me realize what my comfort zone is. In this environment I can let go of my inhibitions and show my true side. By doing so I have understood that I have a creative and practical way of thinking, but I lack analytical skills. I have always been the kind of person to give ideas off the top of my head.
