Foal watch, innovation gaming & girl on fire. Well that’s how to start a week.
When I decide to pay for an event I usually spend quite a bit of time checking out the speakers, seeing how it’s been promoted and making sure there’s some good value in going. Tonight, I realised I had barely looked what a confidence workshop was about until I needed to check the venue.
It’s tempting to feel that work has taken it out of you, but I’m glad I went along.
It turns out that I’m not doing too badly on the confidence scale. I love taking risk. I’m more than happy to go it alone and I’m constantly putting my self in positions where I initially think I have no idea what’s going on and then rise to the challenge.
Where I am less secure is in my looks. The crutch doesn’t help. Nor does the horrific limp. And of course the inability to properly exercise. The panel didn’t really cover that. It was more about confidence in the workplace. The ability to not sell yourself short.
It’s always a good reminder though. The advice will always apply to any part of life.
It did remind me though of what helps to drive my confidence. Now I just need to find a way to make that a reality. Afterall, what’s the worse that could happen ….
