If I do my task poorly, then I’ll need to redo it later, causing me to need to go through the process of mental organization a second time.

While skating, I am frequently expected to finish drills in which I count my exercises on my own. Because I believe in doing excellent work, I always do each and every
Admissions Essay 2 Figure skating plays an important role in shaping my character and building skills for the future. Being able to perform gravity-defying jumps and spins on a thin blade requires more than just talent—it involves dedication and perseverance when in the face of adversity. As an athlete, I interpreted the saying “practice makes perfect” as pushing past my limits and training for several hours.

In my first year of gymnastics I learned tons of new skills and built up my strength because I knew I needed to be able to keep up with others on the level. At the end of the first year I learned I had not achieved all of the requirements to level up, I was crushed, but I learned the things I would need to accomplish to be able to move up the next year. Being able to fail taught me to look at the positives from the journey and learn from them. Some people may argue that the destination is more important than the journey because it feels good to achieve a goal. I agree with it feeling good to achieve a goal but you can’t forget how you got there.

Interscholastic athletic participation has influenced my character in ways I never fathomed. As an athlete, failure is inevitable. Even the greatest athletes have failed at some point. As a hurdler, I have countless scars from stumbling over hurdles. Through this failure, however, athletics has taught me how to get up, move on, and learn from my mistakes.
Running should never become their entire life. I’ve always felt that self-discipline was the key to success in everything you do in life. I still do, probably more so today than I ever did. But, what has changed for me was the way that self-discipline was applied to not only myself but to the hundreds of people that I’ve coached over the years. In my early years of coaching, I was adamant that to get to the top was hard, but staying on the top was even harder.
There’s only so much you can learn about dribbling a ball or scoring touchdowns. In gymnastics, however, each level constructs a foundation in which future skills are rooted. Needless to say, when I reached level 8 the routines I learned were challenging. My conversations systematically revolved around my inability to perform “crazy-hard” moves and combinations. Years of vigorous training reached a plateau, baffling my coaches and shattering my drive.

Though, my brothers were able to help out when I worked. I missed countless days of school and my grades quickly diminish. I’ve always been afraid of failing and always wanted to strive for greatness, but life has it’s up’s and down’s. For the first time in my life I was a
Procrastination already wasted four years of my exercising time, but I shall not let that continue anymore. McGonical suggests, “if you tell yourself that you are too tired or don’t have the time to exercise, start thinking of exercise as something that restores, not draining your energy and willpower”(45). I actually agree with this strategy; in fact, it has already worked on me. The last time I exercised, I felt really powerful and energized afterward. Then I felt like I could not stop, yet I do not have the fitness to continue, or else I would exercise for a longer time.

I experienced a new vibe and atmosphere on my new team. The coaches demanded more effort and time than I’d ever put into soccer before. Three times a week in the spring and fall were never enough, soon it became all year round with summer training camps and winter indoor leagues. Not to mention the hefty price tag that came with training. There was always room for improvement and that didn’t sit well with my perfectionist personality or my parents’ wallet.
