I am not ready.

Have you given a responsibility that you did not expect but you don't have other choices but to give in to that position? That person thinks you are the best for the job but you know yourself you are not yet ready. You maybe know everything but there are things you are afraid of taking in. You are afraid of other people that surround you and what they will think about you. Those envious eyes of other people. And on the other hand, it will benefit you of course. This is what you are after, you want it, much as the other. It is yours now. You have to deal with a much bigger responsibility. Will you take it?

If it solves/provides at least half of what I currently need in my life, yes. If you accept it and you find yourself having a hard time, think of it as a challenge instead of whatsoever. Remind yourself that it was given to you, not to any of those "envious people".

Usually when given that opportunity, there isn't any choice in whether you take it or not. I'm happy for you. I'm sure the person who gave you the position saw something in you that told them you were the perfect fit for it. I hope you have much success in your new position.
In one of the challenges I'm doing for this month, I was asked to get out of my comfort zone. So, to answer your question, yes I will take it because I want to do something that would make me break free from my comfort zone. Good luck!
I was approached once about a job - which I knew I wouldn't be able to handle at that time. So instead of wasting the Company's time, I told them the truth straight out. It would have been a wonderful job - but I was not ready - and I would hate to be fired.
if you have any concerns about possible scenarios with clients, then tell them about it so they can tell you how to handle them. if you feel that you need additional training, mentoring, then they should provide it. it wouldn't be right if they promoted but let you figure things out by yourself and if you make a mistake, blame you.
