I knew the solution to my problem the whole time but it was up to me to take action. I had to step outside my comfort zone and do something I had never done before. If you want something bad enough, you will make the time for it. I learned not to put something off for tomorrow if you can do it today.

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. If you never fight through challenges you will never grow. I like the idea of case management because families who have a child with a disability need as much help as they can get.
he even thoughts of doing something he is not comfortable with, only to make Julianna forgive him. 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.’

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.

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.

Instead of taking the responsibility and finishing the task, everyone keeps pointing fingers at each other.

The person who succeeds without first failing hasn't really learned anything; in failures, there can be a learning experience and an opportunity to grow.
I joined the National FFA Organization March of my sophomore year in 2015. I didn't really know what I was getting myself into, just that my teacher needed another participant for the Vet Science CDE. I agreed to come to practice and eventually compete at the state contest. This was the beginning of my FFA career. We won the state contest, and worked through the summer to head to National Convention that fall and finish with a gold-rating.
Famous author and businessman Philip Crosby said, “Making a wrong decision is understandable. Refusing to search continually for learning is not.” As Philip Crosby said, learning from mistakes is more important than committing them.
