I can and I will – watch me (Part 2)

Did I mention I got promoted?  (As I set out in my goal/system… whatever)

It was funny because my assigned mentor had done a lot to protect my confidence.

“Don’t worry if you don’t get shortlisted, jobs at that level have a lot of applicants.”

Soon after I got shortlisted.

“Don’t worry if you don’t get the job, you did really well to get that far and you can develop what you did for next time.”

I got the job.

I know my mentor didn’t actually mean anything by it.  If I had a lower level of self-esteem I might have interpreted that as her saying I wasn’t good enough.

But I realised she was saying it to protect my confidence so that if I failed I wouldn’t let it discourage me.

But as I always think – I can and I will watch me.

i can and i will, watch me

And if they weren’t watching me, they certainly are now….
