Having happiness in your life always feels good and everyone
can truly say they’ve experienced happiness whether it
be after a personal achievement or as simple as a baby walking
for the first time. During high school, I would always ask
myself, “Is there more to my education?”,
“Is this even worth it?” When I got to my junior
year, I realized that education is the key to success.
Therefore, getting my high school diploma was a must or else
my future will be in jeopardy.
During my middle school years, education was not important
to me. I always use to think my parents just forced me to go
to school. Being there seemed like a waste of time to me and
the teachers spent the majority of the class time trying to
disciple students so it was just useless to me. The only thing
I seemed to worry about was my social life. All I was worried
about was making friends I could have fun with.
I attended an information technology convention for young
adults who will like to study information technology in
college and to make it their career in the future. During the
convention, I was inspired by a man who gave a short speech
about education. He stated, “Getting an education is one
of the best things you, as a young person, can do for yourself
to ensure you lead a better, more fulfilling and prosperous
life.” He also talked about what education has done to
him, such as, getting a good job that he enjoys, and just
being successful in what he enjoys doing.
Before I knew it, high school came around. I started to
take education more seriously. I barely missed school and made
sure my work was always done. I made sure graduating high
school was my number one goal. As time went by,I was still
focused on my goal, although I fell off a couple of times. I
wanted to show my family and my friends that I could still do
Finally, May 29th, 2014 came around and I received my diploma.
Happiness was all in the air. My friends and family were so
proud of me for achieving this goal. I enjoyed my whole summer
celebrating my accomplishment. I am currently a student at the
College of Southern Maryland and I am still pursuing my goal
to be an IT specialist.
Life is what you make it. Keeping yourself motivated can
help you achieve your goals. Be determined, visualizing your
ideal future and your ability to discover inner motivation
will have a great deal to do with quality of the outcomes and
experiences you create during all of the years.
