Even though I had seen about the training before the first class had begun and thought that I must participate in this, I just get to be able to participate at Class 3. And the reason of the delay was me generating nonessential excuses like “I need to save a little more money, this training takes place in Istanbul, if it were happening in somewhere closer, I could have participated. Or at first, I must take care of all my unfinished business.” I am calling them nonessential because they were all kind of problems that I could handle. It was the words of Program Manager that I heard during a Podcast “ those who claim to come to this training but producing non-essential excuses are people who do not really want to apply to this course.” that helped me to break those excuses. We can call it as those words gave me the motivation to come here. Or else I would be waiting for this training to transport somewhere nearby, or maybe I would be waiting for my Works to reduce but of course, that is not something possible.
One other excuse will bear as another end, you can be sure of that. If you are living under the shadows of your excuses like as I had, ask yourself if you really want to participate in this training. If your answer is yes, then apply for his course without having any hesitation.
This kind of indecisive and passive excuses causes a delay in the progression of a person.
Do not avoid to try new things for your development, do not be afraid to make mistakes. Even if you end up making a mistake, you can at least tell that you have tried, trying do never reduce someone’s quality but it will bring in many things.
But I want to indicate this; During the training, you will be often witnessing, learning and adjusting many occasions like these. Throughout the training, you will learn to learn through struggling and suffering. You will not be given any easy information. Therefore, if you have any expectations such as having a teacher telling you something for you to simply apply those into practice. Abandon them there will not be such a thing. But don’t worry you will be grateful for not receiving such training. Because if you have had such training, you would need another teacher every time you wanted to learn something new. Field training is also based upon learning through suffering; You learn and experience a lot of new things like what is To be a team, not to leave no one behind, trusting one another, never giving up, acting under pressure. And my friends those find the field training unrelated and pointless would be better consider those kinds of situations because we don’t go to the field for the joy of jumping around but there is a goal, an educative side of everything that has been done here.
program manager’s narrations of his experiences acquired within the sector is another thing that can not be earned in another training. Even though experiences can not be earned by listening, they give you an idea about the potential problems laying there waiting and that brings you another perspective. You are gaining an idea of what and how you should do and how to act during different situations.
