always feel less/lack of confidence while at work

I am currently employed as junior employee.My company gave me 3 months training .Now i have been sent to client side as L1 for mointring clients one of the critical process/job. this has nothing to do with for what i was trained for.I feel tense while doing mointoring stuff because its has time bound restrictions and and if in that time it is not completd then we have 5 min to solve or esclate it . I feel comfortable when someone is with me to monitor it but feel anxiety while doing alone.What do u think why i feel lack of confidence ? IS it because of i paid less attention during my training or anything else. Please suggest me methods to overcome my lack of confidence so that in future it would help me.

Dear Anup,

We ALL have weaknesses and strengths. ALL means ALL. Amitabh Bachchan was rejected by All India Radio and he became the biggest superstars of Indian Film industry. There are a couple of things that you should do:
1. Focus on your strengths: Dont waste energies on the weaknesses. Sharpen your strengths. Enjoy your successes and work. Break the big job into small steps and celebrate the achievement of those small goals.
2. Face the fear: Failure is common. Be it Steven Spielberg or Bill Gates. The way we deal with failure is important. Every fall is a learning experience. So, the things that make you fearful, you should definitely do them. And keep on doing them till you succeed. Soon failure will turn into challenge and it will be an adventure that you shall seek to try something difficult. Just like swimming - when you are thrown into the water then only you learn to swim.

Last but not the least, you should trust your employer. If they have put you on a critical project and applied for your L1, they would have perceived the talent in you to perform the job else they will not endanger the relationship that they have with their own client. So relax!! In the IT industry, the bugs that happen in a software generally have a repeatable pattern. So, you just need to read it and enjoy your job.Happy fixing!
