This I Believe
I believe in working hard and fairness in everything I do. I have learned to work hard for everything and never give up on what I’m doing in life. I also learned to be fair and kind to everyone no matter what happens.
I believe in working hard because that’s what I have to do in the sports I play to get the spot I want. Sports have been rough for me because of coaches and some players. For the past three years I have gotten the one hundred and ten percent award, twice in basketball and once in volleyball. I am always told that I am doing so good and i deserve a starting spot on varsity. However things don’t always work the way I want them to no matter how hard I work. I thought that volleyball season would be great my Senior year of high school but right now it’s not. I have worked so hard for a starting varsity spot since my freshman year trying to become better so I can get to this point in the sport and show everyone how hard I can play. However the coach thinks differently, she tells me in practice that I am doing so good and keep improving but she never shows me that when it’s game. I sit the bench and juniors start over me, but I don’t let that bring me down. Sometimes I do let it get to me but i try and raise my head and keep pushing and working hard. I have always been told working hard pays off no matter what I am doing and that is what I believe in.
I believe in fairness for many reasons. Being fair is what I first thought coaches and people were, until they showed me that they aren’t going to make things easy. They know that I am a better player but they still don’t choose to play me. It’s hard to think that everyone is fair in life but they aren’t. I have to work hard to show them and never give up. As I work harder I started to realize that those things have shaped me into the person I am today. I realized none of this stuff will really matter later in life but in my life I never give up. As I keep working through the rough times, things are becoming easier in my life and throughout everything I’ve been through. I soon realized that these things helped me succeed.
I believe that hard work pays off and being fair is something someone should always have. Even when I thought of giving up I pushed through the pain to get to where I am. With all the things I’ve been through with sports and people with being mean to me or not being fair in all situations. I have found that working hard gets me places I want to be. Instead of being lazy I am becoming someone who is productive and reaching my goal. I have to believe in myself to achieve things, that’s why I believe in this.
