As long as I can remember I have always had a passion and love for wild life and animals. Many people would call me the horse girl or the dolphin girl. My favorite shows were nature on PBS and national geographic. I love learning about different animals and all of their unique qualities it fascinates me. I was in full bloom of my love for animals in the early 2000’s just as SeaWorld was starting to become extremely popular. It became my dream to visit SeaWorld and get a chance to experience these creatures in person, to be able to be face to face with some of the most magnificent animals in the world. In 2010 I got my opportunity to finally travel to SeaWorld with my family. The highlight of the Trip was the orca show that our parents had surprised us with and bought tickets for. We were so excited to be able to be up close with the whales, I couldn’t handle my excitement. An hour before the show we were notified that the show was going to be cancelled for the rest of the day due to some serious issue. In my head, I thought that the whales were either too tired to preform again or one wasn’t feeling well. To say the least I was disappointed. Little did we know that in the previous show a trainer had been drug down to the bottom of the pool and killed by one of the orcas at SeaWorld.
Dr. Orison Swett Marden once said, “All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible.” Goals are important for the reason that they keep you focused on what you want to accomplish in life and gives something to work towards. My first personal goal is to return to the soccer field following my ACL injury. My second personal goal is to one day have a family of my own. My professional goal in life is to graduate college and become an occupational therapist.
I believe that through my aptitude for math and technology, quest for knowledge, in addition to the guidance of my parents, I am quite capable of attaining my aspired educational and career goals.
I have been through a lot in my time being here on this planet. Change of dreams, loss of family, life changing moments, coming to realization of certain things and cutting people out of my life. I would not be who I am today if I did not go through everything that I have gone through, so in the end, I am happy I went through those things in life.
Why i know that im never going to make it anywhere in life where i can sit back and say im happy. I am a failure, i lack what is the most nescesary and vital thing to becoming succsesful and happy. This is drive, the will, the no matter whats coming at me im going to charge full speed right back at it and beat it with everything i have, and after that pick my head up and look for what is behind that.
I am a female who was named after a telenovela, “Abigail” born in Pomona CA and raised in San Bernardino CA. I was named by the name Abigail because my dad thought it was a beautiful name from the telenovela and it was also in the bible. I thought it was pretty hilarious when he told me. I turned 18 on September 20th, and was born on the year 1998. I currently attend Cal State San Bernardino and I’m a freshman majoring in Nutrition and Food Sciences. My future goals consist of graduating and continuing my learnings into my life in the future. Where I am at this point of my life is just school and my business. I will mention later on what this business consists of. Also, in this point of my life I also do stuff beside school and my business. For example, I like to hangout with my cousins and family on weekends and spend quality time with my family during the week. We take family trips out of state every year and also do fun activities around the city.
In a rocking chair even older than herself, she sits, her body as still as a river on a calm day. The bright light emitting from the large windows in the living room gives the figure of an old woman with grayish hair that hangs near her face. But, for her fingers progressing fast in an exact routine, as an array of different colorful stitches extends from the knitting needles. Tomorrow I will be able to start a new knitting project, maybe use the blue wool to make new sweaters for the grandchildren. An unexpected sharp thud of a knock was heard at the door; more than enough to be detected by my aging ears. As much as it bothers me to get up, I refuse to let the rattling pain in my bones win against me. It isn’t that I get up at all, it just feels more complex than before. I just can’t get up too quickly for a sharp pain may shatter me like glass. I allow my right leg to hold my weight as I move my left leg upright to hold more of my weight. Once, standing I slowly take steps moving forward and with every single step I take the cold wooden floor creaks. Growing old shouldn’t really stop me from doing the everyday things in life. They want us to give up and I simply can’t allow that. Yeah, I do gaze at the old woman in the mirror before me. At my age, I would have my feet hanging from the grave already. The lines in my face are so deep and saggy - like the skin no longer connects to the skull underneath. Beyond this mask of age, there remains the youthful
One of the most definite answers about my future goals, when I was young, was “I want to be a doctor.” I commonly caught myself fantasizing about treating patients and using the magnificent machines I see in movies to treat people. My ideas were not motivated by my experience. My ideas were based on movies and other nice stories that I had heard to construct my ideas about my ideal job and education potential. Currently, I wish it was as easy as I once thought. As I have matured and gotten older, I have realized that to accomplish any career; one has to work very hard and be passionate about it. I have also learned that my accomplishment of my educational goals is not solemnly based on my abilities, but also the input of the teachers. Through experience, I have learned that for one to achieve, they should not only be motivated to excel, but also be led by talented and motivated teachers.
A time where I achieved a personal goal in my life has to be when I had to take school serious and bring my grade up so I can have better future for myself. So let 's go back to when I was in High School after leaving middle I had a bad start back towards the end of middle school I was never the kid who never did there homework, projects or anything I had to do that I was assigned to do at home and kept making excuses of why I didn 't do it. After that I got in trouble by my parents we would later have a talk about why I should focus on my education as a teen I didn 't really care what they said just went through one ear then out the other. When I first started High School I didn 't do some homework and even projects assignments again my parents would soon be later be notified about how my grades were not so great that 's when it all started. When I came home my parents were waiting for me as we started to talk they were talking about when they were kids they wish they could have expanded their education since my mom only went to elementary school back when she a kid back in Mexico since she could not go since she was not able since she was the oldest of 5 siblings so she had to stop going to school because of it. My father never went to school as a kid since he was very poor growing so he was not able to to learn anything they told me if they had the opportunity to further their education they wish they could have been something instead of what they would do my mom wanted
Throughout my life I have set many goals, starting when I was at a young age setting the goal to build the tallest tour with my blocks at age five, or even set the goal to be the valedictorian of my class in eighth grade. I have learned in life that goals are a very important aspect to succeed in life. Not only do goals give us the motivation to achieve the highest potential we can accomplish, but also give us the confidence to achieve higher goals we did not think we could ever accomplish. As I have grown as an individual, I have realized that my goals have matured, and become more focused. I have had to learn to make a path for myself, to start planning early, and organize my goals. That being said, I will always have to keep in mind the many complications life will throw in my way. Those complications will be stepping stones to help me gain strength in my goals as well. I have set many goals for myself, but I have
In life, purpose helps drive your passions in life and take you wherever you may want to go. Everyone has their purposes that guide them and keep the light at the end of the tunnel lit. There are many different purposes that can hold a place in your life’s journey such as academic, career, and personal purposes. My overall purpose in life is to be able to have a life that I am proud of and to have a life that I did not simply settle for. In my career, I hope to be a successful lawyer who has changed other’s lives for the better. My academic goal is to always be a student in all situations with a desire to learn at every opportunity that arises. Finally, my personal goal in life is to never settle for anything and to always
Growing up in Miami I have gotten accustomed to the cold and impersonal interactions attributed to living in a big city. Although I enjoy all of the opportunities that are presented by metropolitan areas, it disheartens me to know that most people in urban settings do not know their neighbors. Via avian perspective, you can see the large-scale segregation of classes and ethnic groups. Little Havana, Little Haiti, and Little Puerto Rico are just some examples of the neighborhoods I have called home. As a multiracial child, I found it difficult to fit in when the typical icebreaker question was “Where are you from?” “Me?” I would ask. Knowing there was a narrow range of accepted responses I replied, “I am from here - from Earth... but more importantly, where am I going?” It seems a natural human characteristic to assign greater importance to our past experiences than to our aspirations for the future. In order to achieve what I want with my life I know that I must not dwell on the past but focus on the future.
Do not take this the wrong way when I say that I do not care what it is you are trying to achieve. Let me explain. I mean I do not care if your goal is to graduate high-school with a certain GPA, start a clothing line, release your own book, learn an instrument, master a language, or even if it’s getting a certain someone in your life. Only you have the power to make that dream, goal, and ambition come to life. Grant Cardone taught me to commit first, and figure the rest out later. Just jump in! I can’t emphasize how many times I’ve thought about or talked about doing something and because that’s all I did, I never got anything done. After I committed to this concept, my goals were slowly becoming more and more accomplishable. January of 2017 I told myself I wanted to write a book and as soon as I set my mind to it and opened the document all I can say is: well … here you are, reading it.
