Hi all just had a couple of things that are on my mind that have been worrying me about becoming an officer. The first thing that worries me the most is gaining the respect of the lads. Especially those that have been on operations, I find it difficult to imagine how I could potentially be leading these guys who know way more about the job than me. It's been worrying me a lot and I am not sure if being an officer is for me if I have this thought in the back of my head ? I know I can lead, I have done it many times before in a variety of situations however I am worried about certain aspects of my character. What I mean by this is that I am quite a quiet bloke and am inclined to take the back seat on leadership tasks and I am worried that this is something I will struggle with at POC and AIB. Or even in my future as an Officer IF I even make it through especially when it comes to leading blokes who have operational experience as I don't want to come across as arrogant. Not really sure what exactly I am trying to say here but do you think that if I have these thoughts in the back of my mind that I am not suitable for the role of a YO. Thanks.
