To accomplish anything in life, you have to start somewhere. Achievements, family life, values, aspirations and beliefs all exhibit who you are. Obstacles that I have faced throughout my life have molded me into the person I am today.
Idea Expressed: To achieve success, you need to put effort and work hard in order to reach your goal.
In his poem, “What is Success,” Ralph Waldo Emerson gave priceless insight when he wrote:
“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome”, Booker T. Washington, spoke that success is not measured in the riches and status of a person, but by the hard work and commitment they made to reach their goals while conquering challenges along the way. Washington states a brilliant point, although there are others who would disagree, instead viewing materials as a measurement of success. Since when did success start being acquisitively measured? Modern day society has force fed people- through television, social media, and iconic celebrities- that being successful has all to do with the materialistic items, luxuries, money and fame that a person has. On the
From the first taste of accomplishment we go on to set new goals, and the goals we set aren’t only for the accomplishments and accolades that come with them- but most importantly for self-contention to be the best we can be, to be great. Well my first taste of accomplishment came from an orange sphere and a hoop as a child. On my 5th birthday, my old man brought home a basketball hoop, not knowing what it was, I was intrigued at first sight. Looking back, as an avid sports lover now, I can tell you that whether it had been a basketball, soccer ball, baseball, lacrosse ball, football, a punching bag, a pool, or a track, the first taste of accomplishment comes from the first pass, shot, goal, touchdown, hit, run, or leap, and from there you
Success can mean different things to different people. The definition of success can change for a person at different stages of their life. A person's culture, family, friends, experiences, and environment can be a big influence on defining what success is to that individual. We all hear the stories of people failing and failing until one day they make it to the top, beat the bad guy or pass the trial. The story can also go that they got all they desired or raised up from the ashes. All of these have one thing in common, it is at the end of the story. It's never the beginning or middle. It's always at the end of the story that the person succeeds in their quest. But why does it have to be at the end? Simply, like how there is no good without evil. You can not have succeed without struggling and failing first.
The Zappos organization, in my book, is considered scarce in the aspect of customer service. There are little to no company that can even compare to its outstanding and distinguish customer service that they provide. I will be discussing several aspects of the Zappos organization in this paper.
Thomas Edison once said, “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” When it comes to success and achievements, people often believe that success is complicated and can not be reached easily. Many authors explain the reality on how we can accomplish our goals and become successful. We recently read several articles describing the keys that make us successful in our profession. The authors that discuss this journey toward achievement are Carol S. Dweck in her article “The Secret to Raising Smart Kids, ” Geoffrey Colvin in his piece “What It Takes to Be Great,” Malcolm Gladwell in his novel chapter “The 10,000-Hour Rule,” and Jonnelle Davis in “Liz Murray Shares
I was born to a Mexican American family; I had the privilege of being the first child of three kids. As I grew up I had big dreams I wanted to accomplish, like become an artist or a famous singer. Well I basically wanted to become famous, travel and be someone in life. It was not until I enter middle school when I told myself that I needed to study something that was realistic and that I could live from. This was when my goals got real, I was determined to get a professional career and set an example for my siblings. It was here when I started to have an interest for teaching. Although before all determination I had a struggle in school, since I entered school I was placed in a bilingual classroom, which was fine at first. As I continued elementary

My major accomplishments will be regarded as reaching out to the professional Hockey league. To reach out to my goal, I would have to work and train hard or I will not make it. Also that would include missing out on hanging out with my friends, going to parties, and avoiding circumstance were drinking, or drugs come in place, because both of those would end my career.
After recently completing my Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree, even though this week has been very hectic with acclimating myself to the electronic learning environment, I am afraid this is just the lull before the storm. Discussion board postings, research papers, presentations, developing WIKI pages, and if I read correctly even learning how to blog are important learning expects that are of this program that are waiting just over the horizon. Organization will be a key factor in staying on task each week. I like several others, still hold fast to my trusty three ring binders where I keep the items I deem most important readily at hand for frequent review. My one item that I cannot manage to convert entirely to an electronic format is my calendar; I prefer to have a paper print-out in the front of each class binder where I can list each assignment on the day it is due. I have my own color-coding system to keep on track. Then I check each item off as it is completed, I have a quick visual confirmation, as well as a sense of accomplishment with just a quick glance when I see tasks marked off.
Numerous people like George Washington, Michael Jordan, and Dr. Martin L. King Jr have had major accomplishments that helped achieve a goal to change their future in a certain way. Moreover, accomplishments have great importance in one’s life. They help improve one’s self-esteem, also, they give encouragement to succeed and achieve a goal.
My answer to the question, what will be regarded as my major accomplishments is, that I have been earning A’s in all classes in school for as long as I can remember. Good grades are something to take pride in. I feel like my accomplishments are something to be proud of. I say this because A’s don’t come easy. So in the end when I look back and think about what I have achieved I think about how different people might think about me. In addition in my previous travel season of softball (around 75 games), I had one strikeout. That is a pretty challenging and amazing feat to pull off, and I was very excited at the end of the season when I found that out. My coaches and teammates respect me more now.
Hard work and dedication. These principles have been deeply instilled within me throughout my childhood and teenage years. My parents taught me that nothing in life is given to you; if I wanted something, I would have to work hard and earn it. Whether it has been in the classroom, on the athletic fields and courts, or at work, I have always put forth my full effort into any activity that presented itself. I believe I would be a great recipient of this scholarship due to my very Nellie Fox-like mindset and morals.
