“A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works their tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish their goals.” - Larry Bird
Learning a new skill is never easy. Honing any skill takes hours of practice, patience, and perseverance. As a new HOSA member, you may feel pessimistic, lack confidence, and even feel intimidated when it comes to learning procedures such as applying a nasal cannula, transferring an injured patient, and/or providing CPR-First Aid, but over time these feelings are certain subside. Your attitude will change, your confidence will grow, and pessimism will be replaced with optimism as you perfect these procedures through practice, practice, and more practice.
