“What you get by achieving goals is not as important as what you become by achieving goals.” Quote, Henry David Thoreau. An accomplishment is just another definition of a goal. They may take a long time to complete; however, just have faith and great things can come from it. Just like how Columbus never gave up to find the new world, even though he always thought that the world was flat. The world has always been a place of innovation and discovery. One of the many personal accomplishments I would like to have is to travel and learn about the world.
When I first joined cross country I was not fast nor a runner. I was one of the slowest people on the team, but I wanted to get faster and I was determined to improve. Some days we would do a hills workout and I would get to the top of the longest hill and think, “I could just run back to Armstrong right now and be done”. But then, I thought about how if I did another hill, I would get better and some time during a race when there was a big hill I would look at it like it’s nothing. I could go up the hill easily and pass a couple girls. So I would do another hill. Then the next time we did hills I rememberd how many I did the last time and pushed myself to do one more. Through that cross country showed me that I could be faster and tougher than I thought I was if I put in the effort and want it
My greatest personal achievement was escaping the negative circumstances that I grew around during my childhood. Within my poverty-ridden neighborhood was an abundance of street gangs and at a young age, I had fallen in with a group of gang members. I was headed towards a path of delinquency but was fortunate enough to have a realization that allowed for me to distance myself from gang-life and instead center myself
My proudest accomplishment is graduating college within four years. I was the first person in my immediate family to finish my bachelor’s degree within four years. I hope my accomplishment will serve as a model to my younger family members.
I would like to talk about the accomplishment about baseball. I have played the baseball since I was second grade student of elementary school so I spent almost of all weekend and long vacation for the baseball. During the three years of the high school life, I could appearance for the starting member. First in high school life, my seniors were treating me badly because my position changed after the entrance so I could not play well at third position. I tried to practice harder with friends who support me including some same grade players and other seniors. After that, my skill became better than the first one and I became be able to hit in the game so the seniors became to acknowledge me. During the first-year convention of the baseball, I
My accomplishments really date back when I graduated from high school. As the youngest of four, you would think I had wonderful romodels guiding me throughout my life and making it easier for me. However, that was not my case. I was actually one of 3 that graduated from high school from my brothers and sisters, and the only one that got accepted to a university. I am now happy to be a jr. at UTEP and be a ro-model from my nephews and nieces. I guess all those challenges really worked in my favor.
Challenging myself and taking the right steps to move forward earn my BSN is already a huge accomplishment. Bachelor's degree in nursing for me has always been long term achievement and educational goal that I have put off for many reasons. What I will gain from going through this program personal self-confidence, improving my writing skills and grammar, communication, and overall knowledge that one gets for pursuing a higher level of education. Professionally having your BSN means job security, more career opportunities, advancements within an organization, financially. When I moved back to San Diego two years ago, I had a difficult time getting a full-time job. I went on many interviews where my close friends were the managers and directors
Every runner wore a bib number with the time they start on it. As I was running people were passing me who had started after me, and I kept thinking I was going too slow and that I shouldn’t be taking this long to complete it. Through words of encouragement from my mom and decipline mentras from myself I finished the race, I crosses the fanish line and the feeling of triumph as I crossed it was something I’ll never forget.
In sixth grade I quit the school band in the middle of my third year to join Running Club. The goal of Running Club was to run a 5k after weeks of practice and I accepted the challenge. Throughout the duration of training, I would find the long runs consistently demanding and a test to my motivation to persevere in the club. One of the coaches, Miss. Ames, was my teacher from the previous year and she ran with me during practice. She constantly encouraged me to push myself a little more every run and to keep practicing. I was frustrated with my performance, but Miss. Ames continued to encourage me. Nevertheless, preparing for that 5k was an eye-opening and an overall amazing experience.
A time when I accomplished something by continuing to try even when success did not appear imminent was when I thought I was not going to get my varsity letter in Northview Cross country after NLL's even though I did not exactly break 18 minutes and 30 seconds for a 5K. In the NLL race I knew from the start I had to stay relaxed, race people, and not go out to fast so I am not dead after the first mile. So I went out towards to top pack and stayed tough with the other runners as long as I could. When I approached the final 400 meters I did an all out sprint allowing me to pass 3 runners giving me a time of 18 minutes and 35 minutes. I felt proud of this accomplishment and even happier when my coach said "I think you are going to get your
With my experience of middle school so far, I think I've accomplished most of my goals in an orderly manner. For these accomplishments may not have turned out as I expected. One accomplishment was in sixth grade. Three friends and I entered into the curie math bowl. I've studied for this test, and it turns out that our team won second place for the group section of the bowl. I find it a great accomplishment because it was the first time I've ever gotten an award.
Waking up that morning May 21 2015 with a big smile on my face saying today I made it! Senior year was kind of a struggle for me trying to make top 10% of my class, work 2 jobs and attend extracurricular activities and groups such as ROTC French club ,Spanish etc. and manage a social life .It was a lot on my shoulders being that I goofed off my other years. Each day that year I would wake up and motivate myself to keep pushing and pushing to I reach my goal .There was nothing stopping me I mean nothing at all people would talk saying things like “oh he’s not going to pass you”. Friends would doubt me but that just pushed me to grind even harder .yeah I’m not gone lie there was many days I wanted to fall back into my old ways and skip
The accomplishment I am most proud is getting to Link Crew last year. Link Crew is a group of juniors and seniors that help out with freshmen with any educational help and carry out a variety of events throughout the year. Also, they helps freshmen learn the school and tell the freshmen their experience at their age and the change of coming from a different school. These events help freshmen feel part of the school and enjoy interacting with their older schoolmates and not feel left out.
