The Perception v The Reality
The reality is never as bad as you think it's going to be
Think about all the things that we worry about or get nervous about or even not look forward to doing.
A meeting with clients or senior managers
A presentation to the board
A review with our boss
A proposal that will win business
A project that we keep putting off
They all play on our minds.
But think back to the last time you were in a similar situation. Was the reality really as bad as the perception that you had of the event in the first place? Very often the answer is no.
So learn to remember and think this through next time you are not looking forward to an event.
"I have done it before, I got through ok and survived, so I can do it again.
Let’s bring it on and see the challenge as a wonderful opportunity"
