I've been taking a break for the past 1.5 weeks. At the moment, I'm relying on freelance projects and today I went for a briefing. I realised I have a problem with relaying my thoughts in sentences people can easily understand. I tend to..not get to the point at times because that's how my brain is at for now. I'm confident by making myself talk professionally in front of people who needs to understand the ideas I am selling to them, I will have to get better day after day.
This afternoon during the meeting, I asked questions, making sure I got the right message from what the client wanted. I suppose they might seem to think I'm a bit of a clueless or doofus but I need to make sure it is the direction they want me to go. I think in the end it went as good as it can get with my deficiency. The next round, I should be one step better and so on.
Making this a good challenge just like the creative writing course I've enrolled myself in. It's meant to sharpen my skills and eventually I will be better in transferring what's in my brain into words. Yeah. Keep moving forward.
I was nervous, I don't know why. Oh wait, I think I do. Part of it is because usually I'll get a brief from the Account Servicing team who translates what the client wants. Now, I'm doing what the entire department is handling. Jot down notes, ask questions, don't be afraid to be nervous and confident mixed together and always be approachable. That way, people can relate to you, have patience and faith in what you're doing.
I'm ok. I'll be ok.
Will be able to stand up with my two bare feet and then will be able to afford to buy shoes for those feet. Baby steps indeed. There will always be people who don't have faith in me, or puts up a front as if they don't and their reason will most likely be to make you fall to your feet, admit what you do is wrong in their eyes but not yours and beg for help.. plant some faith seeds in you, soon it will grow into a beautiful soul because it's one of His many ways of making you choose which path you decide to walk on Dependent or Independent route.
There's nothing wrong in asking for help. No one can live doing anything alone for long. But it has to be under circumstances. If people make you ask for help because it is what they want (not yours and don't believe in it), better not.
It's moments like this which makes a difference in yourself. We need to always choose which seed to plant in our mind and soul very carefully and then the follow ups are like fertiliser to grow healthier. Every decision counts. It helps make us evolve in a way.
So that's what I learned today.
Oh and I also learned that not knowing the word to describe something (and only that word fits) hurts like an elephant falling on my head! Gah!
