Hi, baxy77bax -
At the end of the day it's a decision on how you want to live your life. Do you steal in a shop when no one is watching? Do you want to wake up in the morning looking into that sad person's face in the mirror who writes obfuscated code just to cling on to his mediocre job?
Have faith in your abilities. Take on the challenge. Life has unexpected turns in stock for all of us (of course, for better and worse). But don't let yourself down and turn into one of those desperate beings who make this world a bad place. You only have this one life to rise, shine and write good code. Use it. It's short enough.
