I immediately got to work. In that week, I learned how to juggle four balls. The amount of determination I contributed to this task revealed the potential I had to accomplish tasks despite the level to which they had previously seemed
For example, It 's been four hours of trying this new trick and I 'm exhausted but I don 't want to stop until I finally land it. Now the determination is great at this point however, this is going to get you nowhere. I take a break and actually break down what I 'm trying to achieve in simple steps. Next, I make a checklist in my head marking off everything I 've been doing right and what this does is help set priorities on what to work on. After I use this trick that has been passed on through generations of my sport, which I also believe will help in any given situation.
For instance, my father has to be ready for work by four in the morning to provide for our family, of six including me, with enough and apart from that we rely heavily on government assistance. Since I experience this I know that I want to become a leader so I can break this cycle in my family. I believe I deserve this scholarship because I am a responsible, respectful and reliable person, and I will be able to live up to the expectations. I know I would prosper in the

My Senior Spring Project (SSP) got off to a quick and exciting start. I have enjoyed my four mini-courses, my two independent studies, tennis, and the one-on-one weekly meetings I have with the various teachers who supervise these activities. Through SSP, I am slowly learning how to manage my activities outside of my regular school routine. In the first week, I had trouble managing my reading assignments from one mini-course (4 hours) along with the work from my two independent projects (total of 12 hours). I have never had so much independent work over a week that was not split into separate homework assignments.
but I was resilient. I didn’t let the fact that I was years of materials behind everyone else bother me. I continued to try my best and study hard, and with hard work and resilience, I was able to successfully graduate junior high school with good grades. I may have not graduated with flying colours, but I’m content with my results; especially knowing how much effort and hard work I’ve put into it and how resilient I was during the harder
In the past, I was not exercising until few years ago and I became very ill and overweight. My doctor and a personal trainer suggested that I start doing some type of form of exercise at least for 30 minutes 3-4 times each week. Instantly, I began to notice that I felt a lot better and had more energy to do my daily tasks and was able to believe in myself more. Thesis Statement: Today, I am going to share these three points on why everyone should exercise weekly.
I lost myself, found myself, and learned to love myself. More importantly, I learned about gender roles and demolished them. I wish I could tell you that it has been easy, but really it hasn’t. I have faced so many challenges along the way that caused me to question if all the pain was going to be worth it. For a long time, I didn’t think that the pain was worth it.
With completing the third semester in practicum placement, I was able to benefit from a variety of new things from the class. The placement gave me the opportunity to refresh my memory and skills in what I have learnt two semesters ago. My biggest huddle for this semester was my time management. I am a procrastinator, so completing assignments on time was and still is a challenge for me. I have not come to a full solution to this problem yet, but I did make changes in my life as to how I can manage time management.
We often had long, stressful practices that left us feeling weak and drained. Our muscles had no time to recuperate from the constant lifting and stretching, since we would practice every day. We all brought many different talents and strengths to the team, as well as weaknesses.
but I suffered four major injuries last year at different times. Prior to attending CPOA I was medically cleared to work out again and the academy was a perfect platform to start fresh. While I am not a fan of group physical training (PT), it did expose me to programs I have never tried and might continue when I arrive back at home station. The first fitness class was great in helping understand all the different numbers in your blood results. The second wellness class discussing eating and the use of the “My fitness pal application” was interesting.
Throughout the years I have been a hard worker, if I start a job I finish it (unless something serious gets in the way) I am dedicated to what I love and I love learning new things. For the past four years I have been attending Valley High School and I love it! This school has taught me how to be a better person, how to be a leader, and how to stand up for what I believe in. I would love to be able to continue my education, it means a great amount to me!
It means so much because of the lessons I learned. From day one, I had to make tough choices, such as giving up a sport I had been committed to four three years to pursue a dream. Every day as an adult, I will be dealt tough choices, and I am capable of making them. Hard work and dedication also were very prevalent in this situation. Although I work hard for everything I do and am always dedicated, I learned that hard work and dedication are much stronger when goals are made.
Getting “Grittier” What is grit? “Grit is passion and perseverance for very long term goals.” This quote from Angela Lee Duckworth from her TED talk is motivational for showing the youth of today and the parents of these children that by working hard, your ability to achieve increases. Grit is “living life like a marathon, not a sprint.” Grit is not about talent, it is about work ethic.
Coming from the opinion of a conservative, John Glenn is pro Grit. After reading Angela Duckorth’s book and ideas, Glenn was very interested in what she has to say. With the idea of passion and perseverance over a long period of time, he believes it is more important then talent. After reading Angela Duckworth’s idea of grit, Glenn then tried to understand grit, not for what it is, but what it is not. Glenn’s understanding of it is, “It’s not shallow practice, it’s not mindlessly sprinting up and down the hardwood, nor is it obsessing over impractical goals.”
