Don’t ever think that hardships remain forever, because they DON’T~~ The day will always be brighter after the rain… ^____________^
Let’s make a post-it for myself… I better check this post whenever I feel down and depressed… Here I go…
It’s a self REMINDER, Dalili, you can do it~!!
#1 – Set your intentions right. It’s neither about the money, the highly respected position and the power. It is about PUBLIC SERVITUDE, serving those who are in need of healthcare. Only after you have served well, then only you could deserve the rewards, privileges and rights allocated for medical practitioners!
#2 – Have the right attitudes. Being the most junior specialist in the team, you really have a lot to catch up and learn. Never pretend that you know all. Never hesitate to admit that you do not know, to ask questions and assistance. Respect those who are more experienced than you. People with the right attitudes are welcome wherever they go, always…all the time!
#3 – Put on your best smile and outstanding manners. Greet everyone with a cheerful smile. No matter how busy you are, don’t forget to move your temporo-mandibular joints and carve out a big smile. It will stimulate a fountain of endorphins in your neuron synapses, and aha…the feel-good feeling will set in. A simple science fact is ALWAYS enduring~ ehheeeee~~~ ^^
#4 – Work extra hard to convince people that you are reliable, responsible, accountable and able to complete tasks and meet expectations. Work hard and gain their trust~
#5 – Refresh your inner self with daily, constant and effective spiritual input. Do NOT leave your sholat. No matter how busy you are, you really need that 5 -10 minutes regular breaks and meditate you mind. It acts as a cooling oasis for you to rejuvenate.
#6 – Mend your bruised heart and dented self-esteem, quickly and effectively – each time you received unpleasant bashings reminders of your incompetency & shortcoming from your seniors. It’s a part and parcel of the job. Admit your mistakes, but PLEASE, try hard not to repeat them. To err is human, but to keep doing the same error is a major blunder!
#7 – Keep in touch with your family and friends – Don’t shut out your life, which mainly linger around your wards, call roster and private room now. There is more to life out there than just work or crashing into bed to recover from sleep deprivation. I want to treasure my parents, my brothers and this one cousin I have here. And I don’t want to neglect my friends no matter how busy I am. This is my goal.
Keep going and keep studying, Dalili. You KNEW by the time you chose this job, it wasn’t an easy path. It’s a lifetime studying, and a lifetime experience. Don’t let yourself tainted by those who would corrupt you.
Be strong…. Please…
