I have no self-confidence at all. I doubt my ability to do well in most things. Tomorrow is my first exam of the semester. It's for the second semester of basic accounting. I got an A for the first semester of the course; none of my grades were below 100. This exam is on petty cash, perpetual and periodic inventory journals, bank reconciliations, and costs of goods sold. I know how to do all of them and I've studied all week for the exam, but I dread the exam because I feel like there's something I don't understand well enough. I can't find what it is, but I feel like I'm going to break my 100% streak on this upcoming test. I have very high standards for myself; in my mind, any grade less than an A may as well be an F. This anticipation of failure is not limited to my accounting exam. I always feel like my efforts in most things are not good enough and never will be, and even if I do something right I still see a problem with how it came out. If I succeed I feel like I didn't deserve it, and if I fail then I feel like a failure.
