    • For one thing, I try to focus on the positive.  

       If I focused on my inadequacies, I’d have myself convinced I can’t do my job.  My positive attitude has everyone convinced I’m brilliant at my job even though I struggle with it.

    • I experience the feeling of inadequacy a lot these days as I plod my way through nursing school. Learning new skills and actually having to practice on people in the hospital has been pretty humbling. It would be easy for me to just retreat and stick with a comfort zone so, to combat that, I set a goal every week to put myself in a situation that would normally bring a feeling of inadequacy, work my way through the situation, and allow myself to really feel any level of success I achieved. Slowly but surely that is a confidence builder. As far as jealousy in the workplace, that can be a painful and lonely place to be. If I sense jealousy toward me, I don’t show too much emotion, keep myself steady and consistent, and scan the place for my allies. When the jealous ones say anything negative about me, everyone else can see that they‘re wrong.
