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
Sports taught me the qualities that help reflect in the classroom, in my team, and in the community. These resulted in my success throughout the academic year, in my team, and also in the community as well. I have accomplished a lot and plan to do more in the

I believe in sports but I am going to be focusing on basketball. The values I am focusing on are cooperation, determination, wisdom, and confidence. I chose these values because I think these values are important in basketball also they all relate to basketball in some way.
Strengths Personal values I believe speak a great deal about a person and who they are and I learned that my values reflect just that. During New Start we had an activity in class that forced us to pick from a list of personal values and narrow them down and rank them in order of importance. My top values included family, friends, school, and independence just to name a few. This activity was especially challenging for me but in the end it helped me really look at what truly is important to me. I had to apply this lesson from class in my life sooner than I expected. My grandmother passed away during New Start and I had to decide if I wanted to miss school and be with family but that also meant by missing school I’d be missing out on important information. In the end I choose to go to school the next day and be with my family afterwards. That decision alone was very hard because in a situation such as mine there was a conflict of my personal values my family is very important to me but school is just as important to me. Although it was difficult for me to make that decision but the fact I had the ability to choose between two of my own personal values is why I’ve chosen to place knowing and understanding my personal values as a strength. I know that throughout life there will be times when I will have to choose once again between my personal values and as student like I’ve mentioned earlier I’m going to make those decisions based on what matters to me and what won’t always be there in the end.
I went into cross country with everything to gain and nothing to lose. That was a major help in forming myself into the role of team captain. Regardless of how hard it seemed at times I kept remembering that these weren’t just short term morals and things I was working toward; they would help me the rest of my life. No matter where I go in life and what I end up doing, I plan on continuing to have an admirable work ethic and aspire to be a good leader in whatever situation I’m thrown
This assignment presented a slight challenge due to not experiencing or witnessing any ethical dilemmas at my field placement thus far. However, I have worked in the field for several years and have had the opportunity to experience ethical dilemmas. The most recent dilemma that I encountered involved a client
Tamneicha Mcdavid Prof.Beck ENC 1101 July 30, 2009 Example Essay My Core Values As I have grown as an adult and moved further towards success in my life, I have always maintained a guided structure to achieve goals and tasks that challenge me. I call these my “Core Values”. This is a strict regimen or a belief system that I have instilled into my everyday practice to complete any task that presents itself. Although not perfected, I have found this method to be quite successful. My work ethic, responsibility, and my drive to further my education and knowledge have never failed me. Life can seem tough and demanding on a very consistent basis, but I believe that I have cultivated a plan to accommodate and withstand any trial
These are values that I initially learned from my parents, but have learned to live better through school, volunteer work, Scouts and many years of participation in sports. I show commitment when I put forth my best efforts in school work and even when I am doing activities outside of school. Those activities include volunteer work and the commitment I give forth in ice hockey. I show discipline by following instructions from parents, teachers, and coaches. I follow the rules in school, in public, and in sports. I show honor by following in the footsteps of twelve of my family members in which some retired working in the military and the public safety departments. some still continue to work in the public safety departments as well. Lastly I show respect by being polite and obedient to
When asked to write about one particular value I hold, I actually had a hard time thinking of one. That sounds terrible, I should be able to come up with something that I’m passionate about. After some long thought, I finally conjured up one- determination. I feel like my most prized value that I have been raised on would be determination. I was taught that without determination you can’t have anything else. Being brought up in a southern, hard-working family shaped my ideology of what it means to be determined and not let anything bring you down. Therefore, my political ideology that America should be a determined and successful nation corresponds with my personal upbringing.
As a leader, I have five core values that matter most to me; having a family, maintaining order(tranquility), meaningful work, growth, and truth. I strongly believe in each one of these components. Having a family is so important because they are a main support system. Family doesn’t have to be
A personal value that is noted in the textbook and one that I think is really important from playing sports is to have personal responsibility as a main value (pg. 267). I want to teach my athlete to have personal responsibility as a value because it is something you are able to learn from sports and to be able to carry on throughout the rest of someone’s life. As an athlete, you can be responsible for things like getting to practice on time and doing your daily routine before practice starts, personal and performance problem solving, or achieving goals. Learning to have personal responsibility as a value will help my athlete to be capable of thriving and finding meaning in life after sports because they will have to be responsible in their daily life after they are done playing sports. They will have do things like paying their bills, getting to their job on time, problem solve, and simply take care of themselves. Other than personal responsibility, I want my athlete to gain other values like honesty, happiness, trustworthiness, acceptance of personal faults and mistakes, and
Sports have played an indispensable role in American society. As Americans, we place significant social, political, and economic importance on the values, benefits, and entertainment we derive from sports. Throughout our history, we have seen examples of how sports have played an important role in shaping our values and attitudes. In 1936 at the Berlin Olympics, Jesse Owens achieved what was thought of at that time and still to this day one of the greatest athletic achievements in history when he won the 100 meters, 200 meter, the long jump, and anchored the U.S. men’s 4 X 100 team to victory. The wins were significant to the American people who saw it not only as a conquest over Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany, but a repudiation of his theory of Aryan racial superiority. Jesse Owen was instrumental in tearing down racial barriers that denied black athletes before them opportunities to compete at the highest levels in sports and sporting events. We have become so aligned with our athletes and the values and principles they project, that anything that threatens that connection is met with ridicule and angry criticism. Nothing has threatened this connection more than the use of performance enhancing which is why we have no space for them.
implement the lesson instilled in me from my earlier years. I was born from two Filipino immigrants. My mother spent most of her childhood in the Philippines. She attended college at University of Santo Tomas and after graduating she traveled to America in order to take advantage of better opportunities. My father grew up without his immediate family until Pancratius, so that I would become accustomed to high standards and learn to be a peace builder. I attended St. Pancratius for the entirety of my elementary and middle school education. The teachers there insisted on not only teaching math and English, but also sought to help build our character through bible study. At a young age we learned good manners and practiced core values. Eventually, the time came for me to graduate from my secluded small school and discover a larger more anarchistic world, high school. As I transitioned into high school, I brought those standards and values that I learned with me to help me succeed in class and on the court.
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
