I've Got Confidence

Friday, May 11, 2012

I usually work from home but had to go into the office for a 2 day seminar for all Team Leads and Managers - since I'm a team lead, had to be there. The seminar turned out better than I thought and I had to do some presentations. Surprisingly I had confidence to do the presentations without hesitation. I usually have a hard time doing presentation in front of people when I don't know too much about the topic. The topics on the first day were selected by the instructor and I didn't know much about either of them but got through them. The topic of the second day was whatever you wanted it to be. The first day was only about 2 min, but the second day was 10 - 15 min. So, I chose to pretend that I was a weight loss coach and I was speaking to a class that wanted to lose weight, since this is something I want to do in the future - it gave me a good chance to practice. I was so comfortable and confident speaking about this subject and the whole presentation turned out great even though I went a little bit over my time.

Since I was in the office, I decided to walk around and look for people who I normally talk to via e-mail, instant messaging and on the phone and meet them face to face. Last year I would not have had the confidence to do this because I was so self-conscience of my weight that I hid in my shell. But the new me walked around meeting people. I love the new confident me - this is an awesome feeling.
