Hardly believe that I could come up with this post while I was working on a boring job, i.e. printing CV’s from my e-mail inbox.
I just realise, optimistically thinking, that my working in this position and having a chance to go through some curriculum vitae may HELP ENCOURAGE me and allow me to learn a little things from those CV’s.
Today, after having received dozens of CV’s for a vacancy, I kept printing them out for a review and FEELING JADED. During the time, I somehow decided to scan through a few CV’s and I found it interesting reading other experiences.
I have got an idea that a small encouragement can be brought up from them.
Besides, a little confidence can also be grown up although a few arrogance can also be built.
I read other experiences and how they have grown in their careers by considering their educations, work experiences, hobbies, skills, etc.
I compare those qualifications with mine, and leverage myself to focus on my goals and dreams.
I consider those higher qualifications as my next-step goals where I can reach for the time being.
I consider those lower qualifications as my lessons and my encouragement telling me that I should keep walking to be apart from the lower position.
So and so..
However, where there is the good, there is the bad.
I can gain more encouragement and confidence from comparison and contrast; therefore, I should not be too confident that I am the best. That can lead me to be too irrationally arrogant.
A person can be the best in some aspects, but not all. I do not believe that there is anyone who is the best in everything. NO WAY!
On the contrary, while I am reading those CV’s, I might feel that I am worse than others. And then I may lose my confidence.
D O N ‘ T B E ! !
I should keep reminding myself ‘Don’t be discouraged.’ Use those better qualifications as my further goals. I can be like them one day. And I will!
Sometimes, perhaps, a competition is not so bad.
That urges me to concentrate and be a little more earnest about my life, work, study, and dreams.
