Teamwork is really just making sure every band member has all of their parts down, and trying their very best at every practice and performance. As my band director always said “if one improves, the whole band improves.” If a band member has their duties completed, they should help someone else who is struggling with theirs. Teamwork can lead to better performances in the future. Conclusion The reason why most marching bands motto is one band one sound is because each band member needs to show leadership, responsibility, and teamwork. By doing this a band will have a unique sound, will have a better attitude, and will always perform very well.
Today I am deeply humbled to be recognized as a potential member of the National Honor Society. To me this means I have exemplified everything you look for in a student who goes above and beyond, not just in academics but in athletics, the community and at home as well. I have not taken this selection for granted, as I believe would be a great asset to the National Honor Society. I am hardworking, honest, reliable and quite charismatic too. I hold all the qualities required by the distinguished NHS like leadership, service, character and scholarship.
He teaches his children everything he knows and they believe he is the most honorable person alive. For readers to see how Atticus is an honorable person they must first look at him the way people in Maycomb County did. The main reason Atticus Finch was a honorable person was because he stood up for Tom Robinson when he knew they were going to lose. He believes everyone is equal, therefore, just because Tom Robinson is black, doesn't mean he shouldn't defend him. He told Scout many times in the book if he didn't defend this man he would never be able to tell Jem or her what to do ever again.
Due to society, success is mostly viewed as a physical accomplishment. Ivan Chino, National Guard Soldier/NIU graduate, is not only a successful person because of his accomplishments, but more over his work ethic. When asked what makes a person successful, Chino replied, “The road with reaching success comes with many obstacles, but it also involves setting a new bar to achieve a higher form of success.” Clearly, Chino’s view of success is to constantly set high goals, despite the obstacles that come along with them. The reason being is to never settle and strive for a higher level. According to Eric Baker, author of “Keys to Success” from Time.Com, “Sometimes fighting is necessary.
I have always been curious why perfection is so strongly sought after, even with the knowledge that such flawlessness is unattainable, and imperfection is often equated with failure. It is human nature to want to succeed; no one strives to do poorly, but it is not fair to limit ourselves to a system of either passing or failing. I used to believe that I must be the best at everything, regardless of my actual skills, interests, or talents. I wanted to be the distinguished athlete, the brilliant student, the amusing socialite and the compassionate friend at all times, and more importantly, I wanted to be the best in all of those categories simultaneously. The day I realized I couldn’t be perfect at everything was the same day I thought it would be best to drop out of AP Calculus.
Despite how “The Voice” comes across to some of the faculty, Owen is simply trying to make a difference at the school and give the students a voice: “The Voice was our voice; he championed our causes; he made us proud of ourselves in the atmosphere that belittled and intimidated us,” (290). I believe he cares deeply about his friends and is loyal to them. Even though Owen is smart enough to skip a grade, he volunteers to repeat a grade in order to stay with John: “WHAT ARE FRIENDS FOR? I’LL NEVER LEAVE YOU,” (267). Owen is extremely demanding.
Children are intrinsically irresponsible in the sense that they have nothing to be responsible for. Even older children are only responsible for themselves and their actions and they are not held accountable for the actions of others or the results of those actions. I learned what it meant to be responsible for an entire group of people and the performance that we created when I became the drum major of my high school marching band. I had to stop being a child when I became the drum major for the Jesse C. Carson High School Marching Band because it was an immense responsibility that required mature skills such as commitment, trustworthiness, honesty, and leadership. Being drum major was a serious commitment of both my time and my energy because it required me to put marching band before anything else in my life.
Santiago knew he wanted to follow his dreams; it was helpful when he learned that “When you want something, all the universe conspires to help you achieve it” because he knew he was now destined to complete his goal, and not somebody else’s (Coelho 64). Because of the alchemist telling him this, he knows his Personal Legend and continues to work for it. Out of the many challenges people face in life, some still just give up instead of persevering. The Alchemist, however, shows that people should never give up, but instead fight through bad situations to complete their goals. Others may think we are just suffering when we persevere, but “no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity” (Coelho 134).
Which makes me all the more determined to make sure that I keep that kind of love and support around myself at all times. What those athletes demonstrated to me is the kind of power there is in surrounding yourself in an atmosphere where love thrives above all else. Hence, I am grateful for my gift of discernment, which has helped me weed out some of the toxic people in my life. Maintaining healthy boundaries is an ongoing process for me, but there is no love or nobility in allowing others to mistreat me, no matter how "good" their intentions or the explanations they provide me. When what a person says does not match what they do, it is always the action that leaves the deepest impression because actions always speak louder than
It was my turn to take charge as a leader for this team, but I letting everything just go bye. What is a leader, a leader is someone who has a vission and passion and should not be afraid of any problems, insted, he should know how to defeat it. I didnt know how to defeat it, no one did. We got lost, caught up in the hype, glory, and the relentless pressure to stay on top, insted of working for that championship ring, we were just waiting for someone to put on for us. The Trinity basketball program was founded on certain ideals, but those ideals were drounded.
