Being a team sport, basketball has not only helped me learn to co-ordinate with others but it has also taught me the importance of taking initiatives and leading whenever necessary. During my law graduation, I have been actively involved in organizing and initiating student-run programmes which helped me acquire leadership and teamwork skills. Being a regular participant at debates and moot court competitions, I pioneered a Moot Court Initiative at my university with the desire to inculcate the culture of mooting within my juniors. I am also an active member of Debating Society which organises regular debating sessions for students, and orientation and practise sessions for the freshmen.
People always told him that he was too short to go to the next level because he was to short. He didn’t like getting told what he couldn’t do. He worked super hard and pushed himself everyday to do better and succeed in his goals. Stephen Curry was drafted into the NBA in 2009 to the Golden State Warriors. He is the best 3 point shooter in the NBA.
That was the night I realized basketball was my passion. But, many season have come and gone and my years of playing draw fewer and fewer. Looking back, I think of all the things I could’ve done differently to just earn a few more years to play. If I just practiced harder that day or played better that tryout or that game. But, I can’t change it no matter how much I wish to.
With the support of their families, William’s and Arthur’s motivation to accomplish this goal led them to fantastic high school basketball careers. From viewing the film, I found that I share William’s and Arthur’s determination. William, for his entire high school career, braved a 180 minute round trip commute to school and back. He spent three whole hours almost every day in transit to attend one
My Story Hearing my future coach blowing his whistle and yelling for us to bring it in for our first varsity practice, I could feel my heart begin to race. Going to a school and joining the varsity team as a freshman with 7 D1 athletes on it and one of the best coaches in the country, one could say I was a tad bit nervous. Looking around in the huddle of teammates and coaches, I knew I had picked the right high school because the group of people surrounding me was going to make me a better basketball player. Having both perspectives of my coach giving me critical feedback of my play and my teammates encouraging me to never give up and keep working hard, I learned that it would be challenging, but if I kept my heart to it, I could reach some
While Linda enabled him, Willy could not help himself too keep ruining the good opportunities he had and turning them into some factious reality. At Willy`s funeral Biff comes to the realization that his father had all the wrong dreams and visions of success. Willy`s only dream was the fake “American Dream” that people believe will happen overnight. Willy`s failed attempts and happiness bonded into one and played a part into him creating this false reality and persona that he was the best salesman and that he was well loved by everyone around him.
My dad had played basketball for his entire young life and his whole high school career. I have heard countless stories of basketball from my dad, stories of triple doubles and overtime wins, and I wanted to have those experiences for myself. I joined my first basketball team at seven years old, and I played in leagues ever since. I played on rec team after rec team, even trying travel one season. I went to camps at various colleges in order to better my craft.
In The Cog, Charles Fritch uses symbolism to show readers that life choices can cause regret in future years. The tough decisions that people make can cause the most fulfilling life or they can wake up one day miserable. James Maxwell was one who wished he had followed his dreams instead of living with a more practical life. He had a very successful life but he wasn’t doing what he had always dreamt of. He was the president of the world but by his standards, that wasn’t enough.
Growing up, money wasn’t something that came easy for the Miller family. In 1929, they were affected by the Wall Street Crash and were forced to move to Brooklyn (Biography). He didn’t let this personal and financial hardship affect him, though. “The Depression (the most formative crisis in Miller’s life) was in many ways a positive force…” (Carson). “Miller’s refusal to believe that man is helpless” influenced him to find work for small jobs, and even manage to save up enough money for him to attend the University of Michigan where he was able to complete his very first original play, No Villain (Carson).
He would be playing with Harry Giles, Jayson Tatum, and since Greyson Allen is staying for his junior year. They would be one of the most dynamic basketball teams of the decade. Talking about Greyson Allen he did it right, his freshman year he averaged four point four points per game, and sophomore year he led the team in scoring and averaged twenty-one point six points per game. That is a seventeen point two more point per game then the year
He learned all he could about everything he could. His brain was a vast, and wide hole that needed to be filled. Everyday he went to school and sat in classes. He never needed to take notes because he had a great memory. He passed every class with a 100%.
John Wooden once said “failure is not fatal but failure to change might be”(John Wooden Quote.) Wooden was addressing the idea that one only fails if they do not change after messing up. I never fully understood that principle until I attempted the FFA Creed Career Development Event. After not giving all that I could during the contest, I experienced the worst defeat of my FFA career. I had always thought that Wooden’s statement was only inspire those who had lost, but through personal failures I have learned otherwise.
His goal was not only to make varsity but also have a starting spot. The first time he showed success was when he accomplished this goal. He started every single game he physically could and on top of that, he averaged about 25 points per game. He later attended University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for college, but left early to go to the NBA. He then set one last goal for himself: to be remembered as a great basketball player.
But it turned around until his mother and his grandparent 's decided to pay for a Military school to have called forge valley. As you can see Wes’s mother and grandparents would do anything for him, no matter what the price was they didn 't hesitate to say no with the money issue because they knew that this kid will be successful in life. Wes hated it, but he knew that if he wanted a better future he knew that this is this the only way possible and that 's what he did he grinded out the whole four years at forge valley and later on went on to graduate.
