I am apprehensive. And looking for some good vibes sent my way. I have been at my current job for almost 2 years and starting tomorrow I will be starting hands on training for a different and required job function within my job. The training is full time 2 1/2 months where Ill be taken away from my normal job. The reason I am apprehensive is that its required training and the failure and burnout rate is....well quite high. I have studied and yet still feel unprepared. I have a little bit of money to pay rent for a couple of months in case it comes crashing down and I am unemployed... scary. Any words of wisdom for me?

Just take a lot of notes and get a good 7-8 hours of sleep every night so you are refreshed. I start a new job on Monday and am a little nervous, but I'll be taking lots of notes so hopefully I'll do a good job.

I would encourage you to do things like eat healthy and get enough rest so your brain can absorb it all. Have confidence that you will do well.

in such a situation never underestimate the power of BEING POSITIVE. PLZ BE POSITIVE :) Your Mind Creates Your Reality As you think, so your life becomes. Changing your attitude and expectations, will sooner or later, change your life accordingly.It is your mind that creates the kind of life you live. If you think positively, you will transform your life accordingly. Everything starts from within, from the most simple action, to the greatest achievement.We cannot always control our external circumstances, but we can control our inner world of thoughts, where everything begins. We cannot always control our outer universe, but we can, with some effort, control our inner universe. If you are unhappy and negative, you can change the way you feel and think. With a little work and effort, you can change your attitude, expectations, actions and reactions, and this will lead to more motivation, happiness, and improved life conditions.
