The members of the SEALs go through so much training, which goes through so much dedication. Normal people who go through their training will quit in the first five minutes, because they couldn’t take it. Dedication is what pushed them to do better & to keep them from quitting. It 's outstanding how these people manage their attitude & mental capability to go through hours of intense training. They not only know what they are doing, but they are perfect at what they are doing.
Although I was just the manager, I bonded with the team. Everyone involved, including me, could not be failing a class or have less than a 2.0 gpa average in order to attend practices and games. This taught motivation to get school work done and do well in school. Also something that everyone learned was resilience. After tough losses, the team had to screw their heads on straight and work even harder than the previous week.
With this in mind, I dedicated several hours at the gym for a few weeks. I was discouraged to discover that my results did not improve and felt that my efforts were wasted. But I did not quit. I worked unbelievably hard on my craft, corrected my techniques, and pushed myself both physically and mentally. Over the course of the next few months, I saw improvement and lifted more than I had the week before.
My wrist hurt terribly, but I performed to the best of my ability. The competition went great, and I didn’t feel the pain until after our two minute routine was over. Cheerleading has shown me that my determination, attitude and effort help me accomplish great adventures in life. My effort in cheerleading not only reflects my effort in other activities but also in the classroom.
Based on Jane McGonigal Ted Talk, “The game that can give you 10 extra years of life” I believe my biggest strength is Physical Resilience. I find that physical resilience is the way of getting through your troubled times through physical/athletic opportunities. My fear is let go when I run, running has been my safe places in which I can get out of the real world and spend time daydreaming about all the good. Sports has been my way of physical resilience and my method of understanding the world. My mind is filled with stress and fear, but that is all let go when I get to the first mile of my race.
That game, I realized how much this team meant to me, I was astounded by how much this team of 12 grew so close so quickly. Through the drills and the strenuous fitness days, I realized how meaningful it was to be apart of something like this. Maybe it wasn’t as much of a tremendous deal as I made it out to, but what I thought was a chore of having practice almost everyday I learned to cherish its extremely short season and the meaning it
After some more practices, I started doubting the skill I had because of the drills and plays we did. From that day forward, I realized that you learn from the tiny mistakes and all you can do to get better was to never give up, even if you weren't the best at something. I challenged myself to try my hardest at practice, and after a while I finally understood more plays and drills thanks to some practice and my very supportive teammates. Throughout the season, I learned that you should NEVER give up on what you love to do, and that you should always challenge yourself to get better by practicing or asking for some
Hi Victor, I agree with you that taking action in some cases will cause you pain. A few years back I was about 30 lbs over wieght from a very larthigic lifestyle. Then I joined the gym and tried to start spin class but I was continually postponing classes. One day I was giving my son a lot of excuses as to why I was putting off classes, he looked at me and said "Don 't think about it Dad just do it, no matter what just do it".
My team helped keep this mantra alive throughout the season. Each day, after relentless corrections were screamed at us for several hours from the end zone, we would tell each other the things we did well and laugh about our mistakes. By the first competition, I was catching each toss in our show, but it was the failures leading up to that perfect moment that transformed me during that season. What I thought would be a summer of failures taught me the most valuable lesson of all- the only flags you truly drop are those that you do not even try to
Exercising has always been a top priority to me for several reasons. First of all, exercise helps me manage my weight. In addition to the fact that overweight leads to various diseases, as a musician, being overweight does not give audience a nice first impression. Moreover, exercising in the morning helps me stay positive and energetic throughout the entire day. I have noticed a dramatic difference of how I felt between the days I exercised in the morning and the days that I didn 't.
My first year of reining was short and sweet. I only showed three times, and while I was not the best, I always had fun. As I looked forward to the next show season, I decided that I wanted to set greater goals for myself than just having a fun ride. This year I wanted to get a 70. To many people this goal was mediocre, but to me, I knew it would take hours and hours of practice and hard work.
Cross Country is an extremely mental sport, so I guess you can call me insane. Sure people always question me why I run, and sometimes, even I question myself. But the reason I run always comes to me during the race. Five-hundred people all crowded around each other, everyone anxious to hear the sound of the gun. As the gun fires, everyone takes off running.
Many students find that a difficult course load and after school activities are difficult to balance. However, student athletes perform the amazing task of combining the two. This feat involves staying up late to finish assignments after already completing a hard workout. I believe that I should receive the David Logan Scholarship because I am a competitor in the classroom and on the field.
My parents are from Guerrero and I am Chicano, born in the city of Rancho Mirage. Rancho Mirage is where I started my life and have remained locally in the valley. Although, for my parents this is where they decided to settle after giving up cherished belongings such as: their petite taco restaurant, a taxi, and their families. For the first few years my family, which consisted of: my mom, dad, two sisters, brother and me, shared a 2 bedroom apartment in Palm Desert among 2 other families. Shortly after first enrolling in school my family moved to a house in Cathedral City but my parents refused to give my siblings and me anything other than the best within their reach, Palm Desert’s reputation with their academics.
