The most memorable life lesson I was ever taught was from my basketball coach at my church. I played basketball for my church for 3.5 seasons and in 3rd grade I had the best basketball coach ever. Coach Norm gave the best lectures ever. That life lesson was to not give it your all give it more than your all push to give 110 percent because 100 percent is not your full potential. you will get back the amount that you put in you just might get it back in a little bit of a different way. I will hold those words in my heart for the rest of my life because it is more than true.
In the video about rules of life i believe the one that stood out to me the most is the rule of "Wait to Worry" because I am always worried about everything. I really enjoyed the fact in the video that said " Did you know that only 8 percent of what we worry about ever comes true.
One thing that I have always taken for granted is the fact that I have never NEEDED something and not had it. My parents work very hard to make sure that my brothers and I have everything we need. I find it awesome that I have never been in NEED of anything. Unfortunately not everyone is as blesses as I am to have everything I need to be successful in school, sports, after school activities that I am involved in. I believe the reason I strive to help others is because I know that not everyone has what they truly need in life. "One of my favorite sayings is the things you take for granted someone else is praying for." I believe the reason I really like this quote is because I get really annoyed when people do not understand how blessed they really are.
My brother and I do the yard work for my dad and our neighbors. My dad has a bad back and can not to the yard work anymore because he has had six lower back surgeries. We help my neighbor because she is a older lady and also has health problems. It brings satisfaction to many people to know that people still care about other people. That teenage kids still take time out of there day to go help someone with something that they are incapable of doing.
The part in Charles Swindoll’s quote on Attitude that stood out to me the most was the part of his quote that says "I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it" I really like this part of the quote because if you are having a hard time doing something in; life, school, work, or anything really if you go into it with a positive attitude instead of a negative attitude you will be more successful at the topic.
My father is one of the most positive people I know. He is positive because he has been through six back surgeries and had a very difficult time with pain. Even though he is in a lot of pain and had to his way of life a little bit he still is the same dad I have always had. He still plays catch with my brother and I, he still sits on the hard bleachers and watches our sport games and anything my brothers and I do. That just makes you believe that there are strong people who make you believe that you can do anything you set your mind too. That positive person is my father. With all that my dad has been through he is still the strongest person that I have ever met.
The subject that is most difficult for me is Spanish. I believe the reason that Spanish is the most difficult for me is because there are just so many verb changes that can become very confusing. I hope that studying very hard and and trying my best will help me get an A this trimester as my final grade in Spanish 2B. Just because an event is difficult for you does not mean that you can not accomplish it. Succeeding at difficult activities makes less difficult activities more enjoyable. If you have a positive attitude you can accomplish anything you set your mind to its just mind over matter.
My number one goal in life is to love what I am doing no matter what I am doing, along with maintaining a 3.8 GPA or higher throughout my entire high school career. So far I have had that opportunity to be very successful here at Lake Shore High School. As far as always loving what I am doing, I have also always loved what i have been doing. Going to school and succeeding. When I go off to the university of my choice I want to be in the correct programs for me and that would really mean maintaining my goal of always wanting to love what I am doing.
