当我第一次选修这门课的时候，我不知道这门课会给我带来什么，除了我可能会发展出更好的沟通能力。我听到了很多积极的故事，我真的很想被雇佣，并最终开始创业。有很多这样的作业让我能够批判性地分析不同的观点。我能够从这门课中判断主题、目的和观众。我从来都不擅长沟通，比如口头沟通。我应该说，这些课程帮助我更清晰地思考问题。有一些小的因素让我想成为一个更好的企业家。我认为阻碍我前进的最重要的因素是我在公共演讲和与人交流时的紧张。这种不断的自我批评也让我周围的人感到紧张。我为自己设定了目标，成为一名能够引领新潮流的创新者。起初，当我没有达到我的期望时，我有点生气。我知道我必须做一个更好的自己。然而，有些事情阻碍了我(Lumley and Wilkinson, 2014)。
When I first enrolled in this course, I did not know what to expect from this course other than that I would maybe develop better communication. I heard of many positive stories and I really wanted to be employable and eventually start a venture. There were many assignments such as this one that enables me to critically analyze the differentiated viewpoints. I was able to gauge the subject, purpose and the audience from this class. I was never really good at communication such as verbal communication. I should say that these classes helped me to think with more clarity on the issues. There were a number of smaller elements that had made me want to become a better entrepreneur. I think the most important factors that hold me back is my nervousness when it comes to public speaking and interacting with people. This kind of constant self-criticism makes the people around me nervous as well. I have set goals for myself to be a form of innovator who can develop a new trend. Initially, I was a little offended when I did not meet my expectations. I knew I had to be a better version of myself. However, something is holding me back (Lumley and Wilkinson, 2014).
This is the innate lack of self-confidence which is again rooted in verbal communication. My verbal communication is mandatory to explain what I want to express. Honestly, this form of critiquing was not in my comfort zone. The course had content that we could relate to in the class. The assignment work on leadership was a team effort. This effort had essentially forced us in a situation where I had to work as teams. These aided in the progress and development. When I end my career, I want to do it without any regrets knowing that I had fully utilized all my areas of strength and weakness. There is definitive confidence and gaining of verbal communication that I had felt from this course. In short the course had given me the tools to hone my skills. I feel that I should be able to have a plan for the future given my innovative attitude and my clarity of thought. I understand that there is a lot more to actually do to achieve my ultimate goals and this is a long way to progress.
