Strength - What was the last time you had your mettle tested. What did you learn about your strengths?
6 of Wands - Describe a time when you got promoted or recognized fro an achievement at work/school.
I will not be writing about the recent time when my mettle was tested, I will be writing about the time when I was in high school.
There where two times in high school when my mettle was seriously tested.
First time, I wanted to help a classmate who has not done his homework. I gave him my homework. Not so he can copy it, but for inspiration. The teacher's aid had noticed it and riped up my homework. There was nothing I could do at the time, I had to wait to the period to be over. Unfortunately the next period was English As A Second Language (ESL). That means I only had 5 minutes to re-do my homework. With a lot of hard work and some luck by the time I had to tuned-in my homework I was all done.
The second time, I was once again in situation where I had 5 minutes to re-do my homework for ESL. This time I had forgot to put it into my folder and only found out about it when I was in the class. I had put a lot of work in re-writing the essay that day, but I have turned it in on time.
I had A's on both homeworks. Which is much more than I have expected.
What I had learned from all this? I have learned that I work under pressure and do it well.
