This a scary thought if you really think about it, but taking the right steps, such as college will improve my odds tremendously.

College costs a lot of money. The chance of being unsuccessful after college is low but still there. Even with these facts, college is worth it for me. In my mind, college isn 't even an option.

I have always aspired to be good at everything that I do. No matter what task I was tackling, part of my objective was to be good. While there is nothing wrong with being good at something, this focus began to cause everything that I did to only be good, never great. I became complacent of where my abilities were and prevented myself from anything special, anything but ordinary. When I began middle school, this mentality of just being good enough began to redirect itself into some of my school work, but it primarily affected my performance in sports.
Quality number six is something I know I must learn quickly to be successful here at Central. Although my high school career wasn’t the greatest, I soon learned it is important to be the best you can in everything you do. Quality number six is titled “they respect rigor not so much for its own sake but for a way of seeking the truth” (p.8). This is described as being able to understand that what you learn won’t hurt you, it can only help you.

Although, when I say that I am wrong, I do know what my purpose is. The purpose for me going to school is to find my purpose, I will not rush into a career but I will let my mind open to what could possibly find me. I am a very optimistic person and I also believe in faith, I strongly believe that my career will come to me. I also know that when I say I’ve lost myself it does not mean I don’t know anything about myself. I still know what I do and do not like, I know what makes me happy and what doesn’t.
I plan on applying for financial aid and using the money my parents already have saved up for me to pay for the rest of my schooling. This goal is essential to me because I don’t want all the money being handed to me to pay for college. I want to be able to work for some of the money to contribute to the cost of my schooling. Knowing that I contributed to my tuition with money I worked for, will help me appreciate schooling more and take it more seriously. I will know that I succeeded when I feel satisfied with the money I do have saved up which is a minimum
I have learned throughout the years how to be a strong person and fight for what I want no matter all those who are trying to being me dow. You do not always have to save the world to be doing something good and out of the box. What matters is not what you do, but that you do it in a whole-heartedly manner. Not losing who you just because you think it is right. I saw in myself the same open minded and yet determined girl who started at the begging go her terms each year.
My parents have guided me throughout my life with valuable life lessons. One moral in particular they have taught me is that I should enjoy what I value the most in life. At first, my foremost passion was my education, so I wanted to focus on my academics for life. There was just one problem: I would have been very inactive. Even though I do not have inherited talent in athletics, I knew I would maintain healthiness, have an improved mentality, and make many new friends with an active lifestyle.
Not only that, I enjoy managing to do certain task and duties on my own, because I enjoy the after feeling of success and the opportunity to help others after. Taking school for granted will never cross my mind, I will continue to make it the centerpiece of my life, until I now I have reached the peak of my career.
