I want to be a cop. I will be one someday, and eventually work for the ICAC internet crimes against children task force....
I passed my NPOST test 2 years ago, and started working on obtaining my dream career. I let my great fear of failure stop me from trying my hardest. Afraid I couldn't meet physical req. or afraid my juvi record would make me, just afraid I wasn't good enough. Even though deep down I've always known I'm so good for it, I am good enough.
I've been running everyday now, to condition my body, and prep for the physical agility's test. I'm going to do it. I'm going to score high because i want it so bad, I'll give it my all....
Have you ever been so afraid to fail, that you didn't give something your all? Share your story if you would like. It's nice to see how not alone I am.
Absolutely! If fact, I took Criminal Justice in college, and was so terrified to apply anywhere that the dream went right out the window. Now I also had a healthy fear of dying in the field, so listen to this, and this is twenty years ago but as I was sitting at a red light in my city, a funeral procession drove slowly by right in front of me. There were motorcycle cops and police cars in front and behind the hearse, it was huge. Come to find out, it was for the first female cop killed in the line of duty. Was it fate that I was right there? I don't know but I went back to college for another less deadly degree and for me, my life worked out great. Try to think of WHY your afraid of failure. Sometimes it's being afraid of SUCCESS that's really the problem. Good Luck.
