Antoine de Saint-Exupéry once said, “A goal without a plan is just a wish.” Throughout my life I have always set goals and worked extremely hard to achieve them. Planning realistic goals give me clarity on what I ultimately want. It makes me crystallize and articulate the desires floating in my mind. Setting goals have always helped me achieve my highest potential. One goal I have been working for is being selected for the National Honor Society. It has been an honor to be considered for the NHS. Working hard as a freshman and as a sophomore has eventually paid off.
Success and Prosperity, two words that define the American Dream that every U.S Citizen would like to achieve. But, is this Dream alive and available for everyone? In the article “Hillbilly Elegy”, and the book Scratch Beginnings both discuss how the American Dream could be accomplishable for certain people. Many do believe that it is possible for anyone to reach this dream because there is a variety of government programs that are willing to help the low income families or individuals who need an extra push. There are also multiple citizens that need help but do not qualify for certain programs based on their families income. In both cases, working hard and focusing on a specific goal will help attain this dream. It is said, the American Dream is only a possibility for those who are
Author Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, "Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow." This quote has been highly debated by those who believe that new experiances are vital to one 's development, and by those who belive that new experiances hinder one 's life. Trying to do something beyond what one have already mastered helps one grow because it makes one push himself, because it helps one gain lifelong experiances and lessons, and because it can bring failure into one 's life. Some may argue that trying new things does not help one grow because it intimidates and scares one from attempting anything new. While new experiances can be terrifying, one may grow by conquering that initial fear of
My short term goal is to be more open with my feelings. I will start with my closest friends and if I do have an opinion, I can state it and not feel bad if someone disagrees.

Ideally I want to become completely comfortable and confident in myself and not care what anyone else thinks. I really want to become a better public speaker and stop tripping on my words when I talk. So far since I have been at James Madison University I have definitely made progress on becoming less self-conscious. Overall I think that by being not as self-conscious I am in a better mood and have less negative stress. I think that if I become more confident in myself I will be able to work on my individual sustainability from all directions; physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually and philosophically. By spending less time stressed out I can work on improving my physique, getting involved in clubs, being more positive, enjoying my classes and thinking deeply about my true values as I work towards coming up with my ideal
I’ve grown as a student of English this term. I worked on several things including my weaknesses, what i struggle with on a daily basis and even my strengths. Doing this has helped me become a better reader, writer, thinker and a better person. I’ve also use the resources available, like going to tutoring and asking for help when i still feel stuck on something. Going for help is much better than trying to figure out for myself what i needed to work on. I know by setting a goal for myself and planning has also made me grow as a student. My reading and thinking isn 't much of a problem. But i still have a lot of weaknesses i need to focus on, such has actually trying to read an article or sometimes missing key ideas of what i’ve read.
When I began my freshman year in college, I was excited and nervous, it’s not like I was not ready for it, it because I didn’t know what to expect. However, my freshman year ended going perfectly fine because I was able to ask for help whenever I want, sometimes we don’t succeed in life especially in college because we’re so scared to ask for help. However, I shouldn’t be scared to ask for help because we know it’s for my own good when we ask for help. I just have to make my brain works, always have strong critical thinking in a way to make the brain work, and think about what we really need that can make me succeed in college .

If a person doesn't have goals in life the person has no motivation to keep chasing or doing what they are doing. Goals don't necessarily have to be the same throughout a person's life. One of mine is to be good at Math. For six years of my life I have been struggling with the same thing. And that needs to change to make me feel better about myself and my learning capacity. I want to begin by doing at least three Math problems a day, doing researches and learning new techniques and methods. Being good at Math would help my both my future and current life. It would make me a better learner for everything since Math would develop my neurons and consequently would make me a better professional. Some goals can be bigger and harder to archive than others. For example this previous goal is not my main goal in life. The biggest thing I want to archive is to know my true self. Discovering passions and things that I am good at. But I don't seem to have much time for that. I wish I could take some time to really invest in areas of my life that I actually have minimal interest and explore them, to than choose what I really want to do for my life, what I really am good at, what I feel pleasure waking up every single day and doing it. It is a very difficult goal, a least for me, because I don't have any interest for the majority of the things I have to do. It will help me now only now but in the decisions I take for the rest of my
