I believe that hard work leads to success. When I turned 15 years old, I asked everyone in my family what were their goals in life. I was told that if someone does not work hard that person would not be anyone in life. Hard work is the inspiration that leads everyone to succeed in life and follow their goals until they are professionals. Hard work leads to success immediately or in the time to come. Success is something that someone has to work hard for to accomplish in every aspect.
I learned that hard work leads to success. When I started my first year of high school, I played baseball for the school. I was not that good when I first started because I had not played for two years. I could not even hit the ball as hard as I did before I stop playing. That was when I knew I needed to practice more with my team and on my own time as well so I can get better. From that day on I put all my heart into practice until the season was finally over.
Then, during the offseason I would practice at the batting cages and work-out my skills to become better. Since that year on I do the same routine every offseason. From being the worst one on the team, I later became one of the top five of the J.V team. When I saw myself as one of the top five players on the J.V team I knew I would make the varsity team with no doubt my senior year. This takes a lot of dedication.
When I graduated eighth grade I made a deal with my father if I am a straight A and B student, he will buy me my future car. I am still working as hard as I can to keep my grades up the way they have been so I can receive my car senior year. I study very hard for all my tests and quiz that teacher’s give every day. If I do not understand something that we are learning and are going to be tested on it, I would stay after school to receive help from the teacher. As of right now, I am passing all my classes, and did well my previous high school years. So I know I’m achieving my part of the deal.
Hard work is one of the most important factors everyone tries to accomplish in life. It shows that a person is determined enough to achieve greatness in their life. In the future, achieving proposed goals will make anyone feel proud of themselves. It brings rewards that are only achievable with hard work and determination. School and baseball are the stories of hard work in my life and they both allowed me to achieve my goals. Hard work makes anyone achieve the impossible.
