Calm or Chaos (the “forks” of the FE Exam)
Over the last decade, I have been blessed to work with some of the most talented engineers around the world as they take on passing of the fe exam.
Over this time, I have observed countless stories of personal struggle lead to life changing growth.
These stories of transformation have been the lifeblood for much of my inspiration in doing what I do.
But as much as I have enjoyed guiding these individuals…
One of my deepest passions has been in identifying and understanding those deep traits that allow opportunities for success to manifest.
Let’s get in to it.
Uncovering the connections I find in students that succeed versus those that hit a brick wall as they are preparing to take the FE Exam is something I take seriously.
As a coach and mentor, it is my duty to share my observations to help unleash the potential in each and every one of my students.
These deep traits tend to surface at each “fork in the road” –
One such fork is that of “not feeling like I am making enough progress”.
As individuals, we want to always feel as if we are getting better each and every day.
If we aren’t getting better, if we don’t feel like we are moving closer to our goals, we tend to settle in to a narrative of being stuck.
Whether this is true or not, as each day goes by, it becomes more and more true to us.
One guarantee of the FE Exam
I find that success doesn’t lie in whether or not one hits this “fork”…
All will at some point.
Only difference is, one allows it to define them, while the other leans against it as a moment in time and continues forward regardless.
For some students, they are able to silence the noise of feeling defeated in the moment, knowing that it is all just part of the growth process.
For others, the constant barrage of feeling defeated studying for the FE Exam turns their focus outwardly to others, assuming no one else is feeling what they are feeling.
Paralyzing them in their pursuit.
Listen, without a doubt you are going to hit many points in this journey that leave you feeling defeated.
There will be times that you feel their is no light on the other side.
These thoughts in and of themselves are not bad…
It’s when you allow them to take the wheel and define your journey that they become disastrous.
Our drive to always want to be progressing is unique and powerful – it’s gotten us to the point we are in life.
But allowing a narrative that along the road their won’t be any forks to contend with, we are slowly handing over the control of our overall progress to happenstance.
It’s at this point the chaos prevails.
We can’t allow that, we won’t allow that –
Let calm prevail and be confident that these forks are all part of the process.
You got this.
