I think that good character is very important in life because it shows who you are as a person, how you carry yourself as a person and how you treat other people. Having good character is what I believe you need to be successful in life, having good character can
Personal strengths are abilities, talents, and characteristics that God has given us. Psalm 139:14 says, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well”. God has given everyone amazing characteristics that most people would describe them as. Even though most people don’t like talking about their own positive characteristics, we all have amazing gifts and talents. When I was talking to my friends, they gave me three characteristics that they see in me. The abilities that God has blessed me with are, a strong athlete, a good friend, and servant-hearted. I have thought about what these mean to me and I am going to describe each of them.
Perseverance. I believe that a strong core value for not only for me but also for my family is perseverance. I first experienced perseverance when I was in first grade. I come from a hispanic family meaning that spanish is our primary language. Neither of my parents knew any english and in first grade I started to get homework, which was entirely in english. I personally was not good at english either, so both my parents and I did not know how to speak the language. Consequently, I was not doing well in school as I would not get my work done and I would have a hard time understanding. When my dad saw that I was struggling he decided to learn english so that he could help me.
It may sound silly, but the first thing that comes to mind when I think of valuing other people, even strangers, is sorority recruitment. At the beginning of my college career, I was extremely involved with my sorority. I loved participating in all the fun—Sing, Pigskin, open house songs, service, formals, mixers, etc. I met all of my best friends through my recruitment and we loved getting involved in our sorority together.
I value knowledge, determination and individuality the most. Knowledge brings one closer to the answers they might have in life as well as guide them through tough or significant periods in their life. It helps with choices and gives an understanding to one about those around them or society in general. Determination is key to achieving a goal or succeeding in a desired career path as well as individuality. Setting oneself apart from the rest, allows people to stand out and be known as themselves not as part of a group or class. These qualities identify and help motivate a
• Co-founder and president of the Red Cross Club (2016-Present) • Member of Student Leadership Team (2016-Present) • Co-president of the philosophy club (2016-Present) • Member of Earth Club (2015-2016) • Vice President of Spanish Everyday, I strive to exhibit these characteristics to the people around me. I believe the values of dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism are important in everyday life because with out these morals, accomplishing a task and helping others would be impossible. Without dependability, dishonesty and corruption would occur, resulting in people not trusting each other. Without service people in need would not receive the help and support they deserve. A good leader is positive and helpful, leadership is important because it inspires other people and gives them a better outlook on life. Finally, patriotism is important because it teaches people love, loyalty, and respect; without love loyalty and respect, our country would crumble. I display dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism through setting a good example for my peers around me. Whether it is mentoring the freshmen through the Student Leadership Team at my high school, proof-reading my friends papers, creating new volunteer projects with the Red Cross Club, or sticking up for what is right, I aim to have a positive attitude in whatever I do. The way I see it, I can help my peers and family through setting a good example and displaying the four qualities of a DAR good
After reviewing the NASW Code of Ethics, I am confident that my personal values will conform well to the social work profession. There are a few personal values of mine that may conflict to the social work profession; however, I will most certainly use my professional judgement to ensure that
ethic and devotion to others are two qualities that act as a reflection of my passion for
I happen to love my community with all my heart and soul. When an Each and every person is different, as is their character, but the character can reveal many characteristics about that person’s life. I believe that I have valueable charcter. Some examples include: determination and diligence. If I set my sight upon a goal I know I can reach, I don’t stop until that goal ss within my grasp. Staying focused on a goal is important,but investing time and effort to finish tasks is also important. When there are certain tasks assigned to me I don’t sit and procrastinate especially if I know that people are relying on me. If I am to be accepted into NHS I believe that I can influence others to never give up and always stay focused on their
When exploring my values, I found that there are quite a few things that are truly important to me. The following values are essential in my life: Achievement, attitude, awareness, caring, commitment, compassion, competence, courage, creativity, family, forgiveness, friendships, future generations, generosity, health, honest, humility, humor/fun, independence, integrity, making a difference, patient, personal fulfillment, personal & professional growth, safety, success, trust, well-being, and wisdom.
Also, I just recently reached out to the athletic trainer at Florida State University, where I am hoping to attend, to see if there would be any possibility for me to observe with her as a student athletic trainer as well. Both professional athletic trainers have been impressed with my compassion and determination for this field of work at my young age and continue to help me with more opportunities to learn about this career path before I enter college. My persona has not only been effective for the opportunities I have received, but it has also brought along lifelong friends. I am always caring for my friends and their needs before my own. When I meet new people, I want them to know instantly that I care for them. Simply showing people that I care for them and being compassionate is what has given me the friends I have today. One’s persona, their act in society, is important because it is the key point of what opportunities one will receive and the friends one will have.
Trying to decide what your personal strengths are, is hard. For myself, I have grown in my strengths, and I’ve experienced my weaknesses. My personal strengths consist of: positivity, encouragement, laughter, and love. I pick these four because I feel that I am truly strongest in these aspects of my life. Being positive is a big factor in everything I do. I always want to be happy and joyful; not only to display Christ in me, but to make others feel the way I do. I want others to appreciate life and to feel any kind of uplift in his or her spirt. Positivity plays into encouragement. I make it my goal to make others feel better about themselves. My goal coming into college was to learn and know every person(s) name that I got the chance to meet. Just taking a few minutes out of your day to truly get to know someone, is such a blessing. It not only blesses me in new friendships, but it also blesses others because they feel that someone genuinely cares about them. Laughter is another characteristic I strive to pour out onto others. I laugh at practically everything. I love to laugh, and I love to make people laugh. I’ve learned the importance of laughter, and I just want to make one person smile every day. Love is my last of the four attributes. Love is so important to me. I love creation (Trees, birds, squirrels), God, and I love people. I just want the love that God has given me, to pour out onto others. I want others to know that I love them. These are my personal strengths
The author’s personal strengths are compassion, fairness, kindness, integrity, gratitude and open mindedness. These personal
As humans, and particularly individuals, we all have personal strengths that we bring to our interactions with others as well as areas that perhaps need some more time and attention in order to improve upon them. In this journal, I’ll be focusing on four areas of strength I believe I have, as well as four areas the require further growth and personal change.
In addition to my mission statement, my core life values are the foundation of my mission statement, which allows me to uphold my promises and standards. These promises and standards will afford me the opportunity to improve the life of others and myself for the better. Therefore, there are four particular core values that I live by each and every day. The four values are commitment, compassion, dedication, and optimism. The first core value, commitment, embodies the theme of loyalty and honor. I work hard each day to live up to the promises that I make to finish tasks, help others, and meet the expectations that I place on myself or by others. The second core value that I live by is compassion because I wholeheartedly believe in being kind to everyone and helping those in need. The third value that I live by is dedication. Along with the previous two values, dedication is an important factor because being dedicated to someone or something allows a person to display that person’s character of being steadfast and passionate—even in the face of adversity. The fourth and final value that is a foundation for my personal mission is
