Week 8 – You.Got.This
“Confidence is preparation. Everything else is beyond your control.” – Richard Kline
We’ve made it to the last week of the 8 Week Challenge – the finish line is in sight!
This week is all about enhancing your confidence.
But first, a quick look back: we’ve got a date on our calendar, taken a practice exam, worked on accumulating CEU’s, tamed our Social Media time, hired a tutor or purchased resources, invited a friend or co-worker to join in, we have gone through the Content Outline of the exam to double check what we know, and we have organized our study resources and created visual aids to help prepare – we are almost there!
So this week – Let’s work on our confidence:
- First, let’s practice Mindfulness – a stress-management technique which involves observing your thoughts, feelings and breath. Does it really matter? It is essential in guiding our mind to be ready for what is ahead and there is lots of data to support….read here….here…..and here.
- Second, if you don’t snooze, you lose – Get your rest or you can’t do your best.
- Third, don’t be too hard on yourself – You most likely know more than you think you do – You.Are.Ready.
- and Finally, review the Exam Statistics – let them reinforce the notion that you’re ready. Pay particular note to the few number of applicants that actually took the exam in 2019 – only 447! Congratulations for deciding to set this goal for yourself. Secondly, note the pass rate is 85% – that is really high for a test! It’s worth repeating:
It’s official – You Are Ready! This is ‘Your Year to Getting Registered‘.
