In the first quarter, my goals were mostly to just pass my classes with at least a B and since I started school a little late, I wanted to catch up with my work and bring up my grades because I was behind and failing most of my classes during the first few weeks. I also wanted to try and not get in trouble in my classes as much and I did not want to get detention. I met my first goal of bringing up my grades in all my classes from failing to passing and I am passing all of my classes with a B and above.

On June 3rd, 2015, I found out that I didn’t get my diploma. Any and all kinds of emotions were going through my head. So much can change when you don’t receive your diploma.

It is sad how my expectations have gone down with every year of high school, but I guess that is just what the real world is all about. I started my freshman year out talking about wanting to be a doctor or a scientist or a millionaire. I am about to leave high school not having a clue on what I want to do with my life. I has been hard to observe my grades going from practically straight A's as a freshman to the sad state of nearly having my credits denied this senior year. But now that I know that one has to face the responsibilities for every decision one makes, I might be ready to make some smart ones.No, I do not think that I can become a brain surgeon or a world-renowned scientist or, unless I win the lottery, a millionaire but I can try to do my best to become all that I can be with the options that I have.
Everyone should have personal goals that evolve around anything that needs to be accomplished. I set goals on a daily basis. One goal that I seem to have not truly focused on has been my college education. Considering all things, I decided I needed to focus on my college education. The first thing I needed to accomplish was to enroll in an institution for higher learning. Now that my enrollment is complete, I am an official student at the University enrolled in the undergraduate program for business management. As a student at the university, I now have to set personal goals so that I will be successful in my endeavors. My personal goals are to gain personal growth and development and graduate from my undergraduate program in business management with honors. After my completion of the undergraduate program I will then move on to a master's program.

Principally you need a motivation as in Chapter 2 from the book Cornerstone: Creating Success through Positive Change talks about how motivate yourself. There are two ways of motivation external and internal. The external is the support from family or friends or even teachers that are pushing you to do something and thus complete a degree or a career, the internal on the other hand is the most important because it depends on yourself as a need “To be something, to have something to attain a goal that you truly desire, or to solve a problem”. Also you have to know the values in your life to protect them an also use them as an external motivation to be responsible even you hav...
As a child and even as a teenager one tends to make dreams and set goals for life. On occasion these goals are far stretched and sometimes even fairy-tale like, we tend to see life through a rose-colored glass, not taking into account the many sidetracks life throws our way. At that stage in life our goals tend to be less focused and somewhat unreachable. However, the process of growing up, or maturing, tends organized and center our goals, we learn to make compromises and set goals for our goals. There are different types of goals, short term and long term. I have learned to separate the many goals I have into three main categories: family, professional and personal.
I have an MD degree, Doctor of Medicine, and now I would like to further specialize in Clinical Anatomy, a sub-discipline of medical science. Fortunately, through the American Association of Anatomists’ website I found a list of graduate programs in anatomy available in the United States.

Going to college has always been a dream of mine. To some people that may seem strange, but for me it’s been a dream.

It’s going to make me into the person that I’ve always wanted to be, and the degree that I get will get me the job that I’ve wanted since I was fourteen years old. I have faced some obstacles getting here, but I know it will all be worth it once I get my degree.
