You have goals set of all of us to become something important. To make a change to the world.
With the amount of time we all have on this world, it is our job to do the best as we possibly can, so dream big. Be ambitious, be filled with ideas, be a believer because that is what humans are. Who knows what American would be like if the Founding Fathers of the United States did not dream big. Who would have wrote and sung the classic “Jolene” and “Coat of Many Colors” if it was not for the aspiring Dolly Parton?
Smooth Talk is slightly based on Joyce Carol Oates’ story titled “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” but isn’t as straightforward and frankly gruesome. The story focuses on the 1960’s suburbia from a teenagers perspective. “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” focuses on topics relevant in the 1960’s including the Sexual Revolution. Oates’ focuses on major issues and topics such as feminism, sexual freedom, and adolescent sexuality.
Life has its twists and turns, but my overall life goal is simple, help others. I want to make an impact on others life, even if it is a small change. For instance, being able to hold a pencil is the difference between a student being able to graduate from Kindergarten and not be able to continue on to first grade. Being a Pediatric occupational therapist will help me make an impact on children at a very young age. Even small changes can have a large impacts, which is why I want to be that change for others.
Everyone's goals are all different, some many be a football career, or basketball, or golf, or some type hobby anyone has. In the Odyssey, the main character Odysseus has a goal to make it back to his homeland to see his wife and son. Some people if they want, live at home and enjoy the living of their parents house. Thinking about a future can be scary sometimes, especially if parents are dragging it on you to find out what you are going to do with a future. Future a frightening word.
1) On page three (including the footnote) Rousseau distinguishes between the chains that hold people down (actual obstacles to freedom imposed by authorities) and “garlands of flowers” flung by arts and sciences that, though we want them, hold us down even more. Describe some of the chains and the garlands of flowers that may hold you back from becoming the person you would really like to be. (This is a loaded question; to answer you have to say something about the person you would really like to be!) a. Throughout life the majority of the people around us are trying to become the person they want to be. For me, the person I want to become is someone self-confident and independent. To be respected, live a happy life, and to be an example to others.
I hope I can make my community a place where people can get along with each other and feel that they are equal. I want to be an example to people and show that love can conquer the hate that is between them. I want to live in a future where there is peace and everyone is treated equally. I want to help the world come together and to leave an impression on people that fighting and violence does not solve any problem. I hope to inspire generations to come to live in harmony and to see everyone as equals.
However, I challenge you to avoid resting on your laurels and instead to keep striving to achieve even loftier goals. Right now, you have no idea, you can’t even begin to imagine, what you are ultimately capable of accomplishing. Dream big, imagine, challenge, push boundaries, never settle, never give up. Dream big.
Take responsibility, not only for your actions, but your work. We all make mistakes – own it. In the end, you’ll gain more respect and it shows you have integrity (see highlighted Army Value above). Taking responsibility goes both ways, if you did great work, be proud of it.
Each person has been taught to hope, to have a dream. I always shot for the stars; I wanted to be a princess, obviously that didn’t work out though. As every individual ages his or her aspirations become more realistic; I aspire to have a stable job and a loving family. Having dreams is an important part of everyone’s lives.
I intend to pursue my goal and set financial stability for myself. In the next couple of years I plan to graduate college and pursue my dreams to be great. I will be financially stable and overall feel good about the decision I have made . I need to stay focused so can accomplish my goals in life to be successful I know everything I work hard for will pay off . Being able to do what I love most is all I need in life.
I want to earn my way up to a good university and earn my degree, apply to an outstanding dental school and start my long years of residency that lie before me. One of my goals in the future is to help others in need for medical attention. It makes me happy when I see others happy. I want to give back to my community and help others so I can earn the respect that I’ve always wanted.
At this time in our very lives we are planning for the future and making a ladder for ourselves of goals to reach. As you climb higher on the ladder you find yourselves aspiring to take actions that may be more difficult than we imagined. This is just the beginning and we do not give up. As the years come faster I made a list of the things that I am planning on persuing. My major career goal is to go into buisness, and within the buisness industry I want to become a Human Resources Manager.
Some people dream to be a successful and famous public speaker. Others want to be a millionaire or a billionaire. Singers as well as actors wish to be successful in their career and become famous. Teachers may hope to succeed in imparting knowledge to their students. Many students simply would like to pass examinations or have good grades in school.
When I graduate high school, I plan on having future goals that I plan on achieving. My first goal is to go to college and get a degree. I plan on attending Purdue NorthWest majoring in engineering and minoring in business. This is my number one future goal that I need to accomplish because to be able to have a nice life, I need to go to college to support my future family. My next future goal would be get a starting job to be able to support my future family.
