Am always enthusiastic and believe in our organization. Small setbacks will not deter me, but will actually motivate me to work even harder-things that can only get me better after all. With my never ending enthusiasm, i motivate and encourage other community members. Sometimes all what i need is to complete a project successfully believing that i can achieve it. I always believe in the worst case scenario and expect that things that can go wrong will go wrong, that is why I am very risk-averse. However, with my tendency to be more careful, i keep the team grounded and keep them from making ill-advised decisions.
I hold the middle of the ground position between the optimist and pessimist. Am neither overly optimistic nor do i expect doom and gloom around every corner.
I base my decisions on careful assessments and calculations. I weigh the pros and cons with each other and consider the benefits with the losses. Since i know that am going to face different people with different attitudes, young, youth and old, i don’t take time to think and to be creative, i just follow someone to win with no struggle and after i try to take credit for everyone else’s work.
