Today was not a good day. Not because some horrible event befell me but because in my head I was doubting my abilities and became a bit dejected.
The wonderful people I work with lifted my mood. I didn’t have to say anything or do anything. They read my body language (sitting with you head on the desk is not that difficult to read though). I’m good at what I do but self-doubt is my worst enemy and they made me believe I could do it.
Which made we think about the things I don’t say to the people who appear capable. The external veneer of the highly competent often masks fear and self-doubt. We all need to be reminded that we can do anything we set our minds to. Especially on the bad days.
