And it’s really hard because you have to get out of your own headspace a little bit
Yeah. And, uh,  the thing that I regret is that if you never try because you convince yourself you’re not gonna do it, then you’re not gonna do it ’cause the, the first step of anything is to try. So in some sense, uh, you, you need to put the onus on the other people and saying, you, you just have to try if it, and accept that you maybe, uh, won’t get it. And it’s fine if you think you won’t get it, but at least try because then, uh, you won’t, you won’t be limited to what you think of yourself. You know, your evaluation will be met by, you know, people who are in the field who are making that decision based on what’s best for them, for the position. And if you get it, then at least you wouldn’t have sabotaged yourself. And then that’s one aspect where, like, you really were good enough for that position.
Uh, and just that little effort of trying and leaving it to them to decide, um, didn’t cost you that position, uh, in the future.
Everyone has a story to tell. On http://loansolution.com/title-loans-nh Voices of Exchange, join us to hear the stories of people, places, and international exchange. This podcast features many voices, all of whom are alumni of U.S. government exchange programs, including cultural and sports envoys, exchange visitors, and U.S. Speakers.
For Season 2, we travel to Sri Lanka, Switzerland, France, Turkey, and even the International Space Station as we speak with the grandson of a famous oceanographer, a former NASA astronaut, a diplomat whose poetry draws on themes of the immigrant experience, and an architectural engineer/cultural preservationist.
