The Power of Optimism — Generasi Gigih

Experience board? I was kinda surprised about my point displayed on the experience board. Being not a really active person in the class makes me think I would be at the bottom, but the reality is not like that.

I feel like my current is above my expectation. I know that my current position is only on the top half of all the generasi gigih participants, not on the top 50 or even top 10. But based on the score that I have, I know that actually I can. I’m too pessimistic and not confident about myself, and I’m pretty sure that this position will be change by the end of the program. I don’t know if I can make it to the top 60 and continue to the next level or maybe my position will be drop, but I believe, based on this score, I know that I can and I will always try to catch up with the others.

And for all of you that are currently on top of me, please keep it up, I know the competition is getting real and getting harder, just keep do your best because all the people below you are getting better. Even if your current position is in the first place, please don’t feel safe (I sound like a threat rather than a suggestion lol).

I know a lot of people that already have reached the top of the board are talented people. Mostly, they come from their field. But I know some people that come from the other field and they are on the top of the board, and you guys are awesome! You guys have put a lot of effort to try to keep up with all the materials and you guys have such a great speed to catch up. I believe I can be one of you if I also put more effort and increase my learning speed.

I believe this path is getting harder and everyone also getting better every time. So for the people that current position is on the bottom half or even the bottom 10, you guys should cheer up. There is still plenty of time to catch up with the other and go deep into the materials. Please don’t feel so down, because every occurrence happens for a certain reason. Even if we fail to pass the next level, we still got a lot of knowledge that we could apply to other place and build our dreams there.

Let us be more optimistic because our dreams are waiting ahead.
