Random muse on Passion and Attitude

In my final interview with a very senior executive to be a Relationship Manager for the Health Sector in the bank, I was asked whether I had any prior experience working in a bank, I mentioned explicitly that the farthest I had ever attempted to go into the intricacies of banking was when making bankers’ cheques for my MBA tuition, but I had solid contacts in the Health Sector which would build the sector. He replied, ‘you know the most important thing in life is ‘Passion and Attitude’, skills can always be learned and some are trasferrable across sectors.’

In an interview for my  former job, I was asked whether I could drive I mentioned that I had a driving license but could not drive due to no practice, but if the company would pay I would be willing to undergo refresher lessons at AA of Kenya for a month, I was the only rep in a multinational taking a matatu to and from work for a month and leaving early to go for my refresher lessons at AA of Kenya with my beautiful brand new show room car at the parking waiting for me. my ‘small bro’ forcefully volunteered to be my codriver the first day I drove it out on a Saturday.He was so sure I would have an accident. The longest drive of my life I tell you; from Industrial Area, Enterprise

Road, Lang’ata Road, up to Mbagathi Way,Nairobi.. sema kutoa jasho, sema keeping left for the whole entire journey,sema family hugs from my family when I reached home, sema my dad was shocked how hot ‘my car’ was ..I went on to drive him singlehandedly from Nairobi to Kisii to attend a family function hehehe but I digress…hehehehe,
What I am trying to say is do not be ashamed or shy of your perceived weaknesses, your attitude and passion for life is your greatest strength even to overcome them..so here I am on a Saturday morning taking sneak previews into my fb as I appraise a loan application, skills can always be learnt.
Have an awesome Saturday.
