Everybody designs goals in their lives, some you pursue, others you commence and something happens or you grow unenthusiastic and by no means complete. Then additional goals appear so far fetched you deem there Is no feasible means that you will ever accomplish them, as a result you In no way get underway with It. This happens to many of us at different times In our lives. The only way that one will learn to set goals that they plan to accomplish Is to actually start the goal and flash It. However, one must feel a purpose for setting forth to accomplish their goals.
Without repose no one will ever accomplish what they design for their future. I myself have had many goals in my life time. First I wanted to become a teacher, on the contrary I grew out of that dream. I think each little girl at one point ponders about becoming a teacher. Subsequently later on I sought after becoming a lawyer. I had my mind solidly settled on becoming a lawyer that was until I was in the 1 lath grade. I was on a school mission with a lawyer, and he Informed me that since I was a woman I would not make It as a lawyer. I was really offended having someone advise me that I would never make It.
It ought to have made me work harder at working toward this goal, however, Instead, I Just steered away from It. If It were to happen now that I am older I would have worker harder Just to prove that I could do It no matter who I was. Now my goal is to be in the Health Care field. I have always wanted to help others, whether it be as a teacher, lawyer or in the health care field. My goal has always come down to helping people. It all began the morning of February 17, 2003; I woke up with a bad head ACH and knew it was going to be the start of an awful day. I had to be to my new Job at 9 p. M. At night, I hardly had any sleep, and I knew I was not going to get any before starting work. Of course, I still got out of bed and faced the day. The Job was not that bad and I ended up enjoying what I was doing, even though It was not my dream, It was a Job and It was putting meat on the table. I worked for 6 weeks and due to lack of work, they laid me off. I thought I was going to go crazy. We could not afford for me to be out of work. I decided at that moment that enough was enough and I was going to do something about making my life better than it had been. I was tired of working in dead-end Jobs ND getting no where.
I saw a commercial on T. V. About university of Phoenix Online, and thought to myself, “Hey I could do that. ” I got online and signed up to obtain my Bachelors of Science in Health Care Services. I knew this was something I would enjoy doing and that there were a verity of Jobs out there that I could apply for with this degree. At this point, virtually two years later I am still going strong. It has not been an unproblematic path by any means. I have missed out on a few precious moments with my children, my boyfriend and I have argued about how much time I have to working in a factory.
Not because it was a change for the better, but for the reason that being a mom and a college student is not stress-free. However, my children are most important to me, which makes attending school even more important. I want them to mature and be satisfied with there mother for accomplishing something in her life. I know that with everything I have going on everyday and adding college on top of it, that it takes time away from them. But when they are older they will understand why I am doing this. I feel it will give them a better outlook on life, and teach them to reach for the stars.
I feel that it is very important to do the best that I can do and make the best out of my life while I have the chance. Not everyone has the “want to do something with there lives. ” Ever since I was a little girl I have always assumed that I can do anything I set my mind to do. I remember sitting on my dad’s lap, as a little girl, hearing him tell me that I could do anything and be anything I wanted to be. Well now I am showing him and myself that I can do anything and even through all the obstacles and struggles, I have made it this far and I will not stop here.
I have always had people try to make me believe I was insignificant or that what I was doing was not what I should be doing. They have always tried to get me to do what they thought was best for me. Well now I am an adult, I have children of my own and I have goals and dreams that I want to accomplish for me. I may struggle at times; I may undergo overwhelming feelings, and suspect I Just can not continue. Nevertheless this is something I want to do; I have decided to go to college because I want to go. The goals I have now are for me. I will make it because I want to, not cause someone expects me to make it.
In conclusion, when times start getting tough and I feel like I Just cannot go on, all I have to do is look at my children. Knowing that I have raised my daughter by myself and she is doing wonderful and I have a wonderful man and a little boy in my life. These things will give me the pick up I need to get back up and make things happen. Having support and the “can do” attitude that I have gives me the will power to make all my dreams and goals come true. I thank God for giving me everything he has and giving me the chance to prove to myself that I am someone.
