Well I am going to talk about a good suggestion that one of my leaders told me when I worked as an intern teacher in the last summer holiday. Back then I just got back home from school and I got an internship in a language training school. I was supposed to teach children aged from 5 to 10 some easy English lessons and I needed to report their studying feedbacks to their parents. Since I did not have any teaching experience, I felt very nervous. I was so afraid that these children would not like me and their parents would consider me too young to do the job. When I made phone calls to their parents, I had to prepare every line I was supposed to say in advance or I would be too nervous to talk naturally. My manager saw how anxious I was and she told me “never fear for what have not happened and don’t always prepare for the worst”.
After pondering over her words, I felt that I should be more optimistic. Sometimes we are so seized by fear that we are totally trapped in this kind of emotion. We couldn’t think and we couldn’t act normally. So after hearing the suggestion she offered to me, I determined to put aside all these worries and just did my best. My efforts were well paid off and these children and their parents liked me.
It was not just a piece of advice applied to my first intern job. In different phases of life, we will face different kinds of problems, so desperate and annoyed. On one hand, we need to have the awareness of preparing for the worst once things go down. On the other hand, the worst occasion rarely happens so the extra anxiety is not good for people’s health and life.
