|Stronger than you know

"You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."|
I feel like this week I have learned a valuable lesson: you're stronger than you know. Even though there might be times when you don't want to rise up to the challenges or you feel to weak to just deal, you have untapped power. I didn't want to be group leader for my group project for my real property law class yet I got named as group leader. I had been praying I wouldn't be named group leader but then I was and I was like DAMN, I don't want to do this.....Then in my business organizations class we had an in class group project where we all pretended to be part of a company with a board of directors that was going to have elections to vote in two new members to the board and potentially vote out the president. Well of course I picked the slip for potential board member which meant I had to go around the room campaigning to everyone why they should vote for me. I really didn't want have to get up and talk to everyone but I did it anyway. When I chose my slip I was like FUCK, I don't want to do this......yet I did it anyway. I played into my character and went around the room talking to everyone. I managed to secure votes from the people who had the most votes so when the elections were over I WON! I didn't think that was going to happen but it taught me that I was more powerful then I originally thought.
Then I saw the Hunger Games. Katniss originally thinks she has no shot at winning the tournament but it was the things about themselves (the contestants/Katniss and Peeta) that they disregarded about themselves that were ultimately what helped them win. Their small talents were their power. Everything you do in life is going to prepare you for something that will eventually happen;either a small or big moment where you can either choose to rise to the occasion or just stay seated and not even try.
There were a lot of things this week that I didn't want to do or didn't think I could do. Yet I did them anyway and in the end I realized one is capable of anything.
