I have never been the best volleyball player out there. However, that has never stopped me from working to be the best player I can be. I have spent hours in the gym doing private lessons to work with a coach one on one to improve my game. I have spent hours with personal trainers working to improve my speed, jumping, strength, and all the things that come becoming a better athlete. Because of this hard work, I lettered varsity my freshman year at Crown Point, and I was placed on the varsity Munster volleyball team.
Even though, it is hard training for this triathlon I think this will be a good experience for me. My coach has taught me to aim higher in life and to try new things you would never expect to do. Now I have different mindset towards things and enjoy challenging myself. Stage 3: The Return The return in a hero's journey, is when the hero has came back to the everyday life. The hero will be at a higher spiritual level and have all the gifts gained from the journey.
While it was tough, I persevered and worked everyday to improve my skill in order to become a starter and play all the way around. My goal was achieved by the end of the season and with that, I also moved up a team in my club. Even though I was alreading improving, I still worked harder because I wanted to be the best setter in the club. The next year I tried out, I moved up a team but I was moved to a different position. I was devastated, all that work just thrown out the window.
My senior year I will be the sole varsity team captain. I have set a personal goal of making first team all-district and our team reaching the Final Four. While humbled by the leadership given to me, I am looking forward to the opportunity of being the sole leader. My journey to this has taught me that perseverance and hard work pay off no matter how difficult things I face become. In the classroom or on the court, I can overcome.
I knew I would become close with my team since I spent so much time with them, but then I realized even once volleyball was over, they would still be my family. This year as varsity setter, I knew I had to take on the responsibility of leadership. I did not realize however, that I would become the team mom at the same time. My responsibility was to make sure everyone on my team kept their heads up and stayed confident because I believed in them. In the beginning of my last season I told myself that I needed to put forth one hundred percent effort every
He first said “congratulations you made the team”, a smile slowly started to come on my face and I could barely hear what he said after because I was so happy. That's when I realized that no matter how much you hope for or talk about achieving something, you will never get close to your goals unless you devote one-hundred percent of your time and energy to achieving those goals. After getting cut I learned to always stay determined. I stopped wishing for my goals and instead I bettered myself to acquire them. Ever since that experience I have always managed to master even the toughest
It is something that we can call our very own. It is the mark of ones success of how far we go. Yet, of course very few of us are lucky enough to find a truly and fulfilling job. In order for me to work smoothly, I must identify and seek what
His face was rosy from the sun, and his face was complemented with a smile from ear to ear. He said to me, “Congratulations you beat your time by 25 seconds and qualified for sections.” I was overjoyed, and now I had a smile of my own from one ear to the other, and I was glad my hard work paid off. I had been training every day for the past 10 months to do what I did, win at league champs. Finally, I saw my family waiting for me, so I walked over to my family feeling proud of my accomplishment. Throughout this experience, I learned not to give up and have confidence in myself.
You see, this fear woke me up to responsibility not many teenagers face these days. My fear drove me to become excellent at the task I am paid for. It has made me a better lifeguard because I knew failing in this setting was not tolerable, but it has also made me a better person. I take the approach I use for my job to school and sports and have seen great results. As the doubt in myself drifts away it is replaced by a humble confidence that is recognizable in all that I do.
Like in history you are put in school so you could learn the history and change what your ancestors and many others have done wrong. Lifes the way you perceive it whether you made the most out of everything or barely tried , “At the same time, however, an overwhelming majority of college graduates—86%—say that college has been a good investment for them personally.” (doc f) 86% is a large group of a majority stating that college has been a wonderful addition for them and an accomplishment they could tell.
