“If what you did yesterday seems big, you haven’t done anything today.” – Lou Holtz. This has always been my mindset from when I was in little league until now. Although, I have faced some adversity along the way, this quote always pushes me to do better and better each and every day.

Weightlifting has changed my life drastically for the better and I do not regret it. The only regret I have is that I should have started earlier but better late than never.

If you want something bad enough, you will make the time for it.

What influenced me the most while trying out this abstinence experiment was that I had a goal set at the end of this whole journey. It made me look forward to something and having a set goal really gave me much influence. The process for me was hard at first, but became easier as I got used to it. I failed multiple times with trying to
At first, I thought this career would not be suited for me because I did not think it matched my personality very well since I am more of an introvert. However, I also believe I should not doubt my abilities and just take the power away from my anxiety who says I can not. I will merely just do my best to learn and be the best I can be.

He would do it anyway because he truly liked Juli and he was not going to not do anything about it and be the old cowardice Bryce only because it was difficult to make her likes him again. It is amazing how Bryce could change plenty from before, if you looked at the both of them, It would be hard to tell that they are the same person, given how much he has changed. He has gained more confidence, more courage and more compassion, and it is all because of one person, Julianna Baker. ‘But if I 've learned one thing from Juli Baker, it 's that I 've got to put my whole heart and soul into it and try.’ (pg. )

Have you ever felt like you could just go and do something extraordinary but you are too scared to take a risk and go for it? A quote from Robert Frost that says “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” This quote has helped me a lot and it could help others as well. The quote has taught me that if I keep after the same road, I would not change anything and everything is going to go the same way it is going. This quote can make other people realize that by going a different way than someone else that could change it all and everything could go better and if they stay in the same road then nothing is going to change. By going to the less traveled road instead of where everyone goes, you realize you are better than you ever
Wes started to enjoy reading something he wouldn’t of even tryed to enjoy before. “My mother, scensing my apathy towards reading, had bought me the Mitch Albom book Fab Five” (130).
