First off, I need to stop procrastinating, I tend to leave everything until the last possible moment. In order to work on this I will do what I have to do when I get the first chance.

Self-confidence by definition is a feeling of trust in one’s abilities, qualities and judgement. I have come up with a few ideas to help increase my self-confidence for the two upcoming clinical rotations. I need to work on keeping the mentality of always having positive thoughts in my head. Instead of going into something thinking about all of the negative outcomes that could happen, I need to only think about the positive ones.…

    I learned that I did not need to let go of the memories, but embrace them and use them towards my bright future, I learned to accept the reality of moving to a new place and teach myself that it was for the greater good. Today I realize that not everyone is who they say they are, and that is okay. I forgive them, I forgive myself. At that time I did not do anything to defend the truth and defend my God, but now I have a true reason to fight for. Moving from my social/spiritual home was the hardest thing I have done recently, but it is the best choice I have ever…

    Ethical System Review

    I like to think that I have a good balance of all these virtues but that could be somewhat of another system (egoism) coming into play. I understand that my virtues are what I believe and it is not going to be something that I am going to change. I have my virtues balanced out so that I know what is right for me. If I were to let these virtues not be balanced and begin to sway to one side more then the other it would not be virtuous anymore. Keeping the balance of the virtues mentioned above does not take much practice with who I am as a person but stays the way they are because I want to do what I consider to be good…

    Your own self-belief is far more important and beneficial to your well-being than having to rely on the positive reinforcement from others to validate your own self-worth. NEVER STOP BELIEVING IN YOURSELF When things in your life are not going the way you would like or are not happening the way you had envisioned or planned, your self-belief will start to diminish. To regain your self-belief so you can start believing in yourself again and what you are capable of achieving, you must be able to set realistic goals for yourself that you will be able to achieve. Your self-belief grows with every accomplishment and goal that you achieve and that is why it is important to set goals for yourself that are attainable. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't be ambitious when setting your goals, it just means you should plan your goals in a step by step manner so you are able to benefit from the confidence which is gained when you accomplish each step.…

    In my problem solving style, I need to lean more towards the sensation-feeling style, because as I have already stated I need to focus more on the people rather than the tasks. I also need to worry about benefiting the people more. For my leadership style, I am very direct. I feel like I could be a better leader if I was a happy medium between directing and supporting style. I need to encourage, support, consult with, and develop my employees’ skills and confidence, so it will boost their confidence more.…
