OK, so I've failed Main Board. I'm sure most of you have heard it a million times. Truth be told I am very disappointed, if not devastated. I saw it coming because of my performance and have now tried to reconcile reality with ambition! I've had a think and there is absolutely nothing else I want to do other than command a troop of soldiers in the British Army. By the Grace of God, I haven't been told to stay away from Westbury, but I also haven't been 'encouraged' to come back. I'm waiting for my sponsors feedback. Even if my sponsor tells me what I do not want to hear, I'm determined to go back. I ain't here because of the recession, this is what I've wanted since I was about 12. Westbury made the right decision, I would have failed me. I did the age old error of dwelling on a previous task whence doing the next one. I'm giving myself a good year to go away, develop some skills, get a job and come back afresh with new enthusiasm. I do hope they don't expect second-timers to be supermen. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has failed to scour these boards in despondency, but I really do believe that I am right for this job and I let myself down badly when asked to showcase myself. Any ideas, anecdotes, reality-checks etc welcome.
