Days Like Today: The “What Ifs” of Starting New

I just finished up the bulk of my training for my new job. Although this is very exciting, I am also very scared to start my first day.

There are so many “What Ifs” about the first day/week of a new job. 

“What if I mess up?”

“What if they hate me?”

“What if I don’t know what to do?”

We have all gone through the process of doubting ourselves.

Actually, I’m going through this process right now. I am so scared about starting my job that I cry. I’m afraid of messing up and looking like an idiot. I feel as if I have to know everything before setting foot in the building.

Thus just isn’t the case.

Everyone is telling me that it will be perfectly fine, but it’s still very hard for me to get the negatives out of my head. I guess we all have to just remember that “the new chick cannot fly immediately.” This concept really hits home when you think about how much you know and how much you have left to learn.

If you ever feel like you are going to fail at something new, remember that you are not alone.

Stay Golden,
