Personal responsibility is the idea that people have full control over their actions. Things like basic health and hygiene can be seen as personal responsibility because they are actions that are carried out independently. In my life, I don’t have to shoulder responsibilities all by myself because my sister helps me balance things out. Although I am still solely responsible for the outcome of my decisions, it is easier for me to act reasonable with help by my side. Personal responsibility to me is the act of taking care of yourself while owning up to any mistakes you made. When it comes to being personally responsible about your your education, it important to remember that all decisions made now will affect you in the future. As a shy student …show more content…
The strengths I am most thankful for are my natural excellence in English, my supportive family, and my morals. The most rewarding of these three stregths is having a supportive family to encourage me to keep striving for my goals and encouraging me to always be positive. Some of my weaknesses include, but are not limited to, my failure at retaining any information in history, my unorganized work ethics, and my procrastination. Procrastination brings a lot of unneeded stress to my life that could easily be avoided if I worked hard enough. I have always been a straight A student, so my number one academic goal is to maintain that streak all though college. Another goal of mine is to finish my core classes early so I can have a bump free senior year. By taking Dual credit and classes throughout the summer I can reduce my workload later on in the future. A third major goal of mine is to be accepted into the Andy Dekaney National Honors Society. As an active member of the NHS I can become more outgoing and have a chance to give back to the …show more content…
In order to keep a straigh A streak, I will have to start writing things down in a planner and keep things a little neater than normal. Also, I will need to speak to my counselor about fixing my report card as soon as possible. To limit my workload senior year, I should research about what summer school classes are offered at both Dekaney and Lonestar’s minimester. For my last goal, I need to see if my application for the Dekaney NHS was accepted and figure out the first meeting date. My academic goals are mostly my responibility to achieve, but a couenseolor to plan out my classes would be really helpful. I also need to invest in an interactive planner that can enourage me to be more organized and tidy. Additionally, my sisters constant help and influence is needed to ensure my success. My sister helps me with all of my subjects and is like my own private tutor. She motivates me and keeps me on track for my future

“We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.” Responsibility is a big part I am at college and have a job here today which a reason for everyone but for me that didn’t sit in till freshman year of high school I was care free until football. What I had to do was to work together on the field also in the classroom or I would let the team down. Our coach always told us there is teamwork, hard work, and respectful will follow us around for the rest of your life that’s what we are going to learn. I would have to say looking back on it I definitely learn those things from what I did make a better person I would have to thank him for that too.
Moreover, I have three short-term goals that I plan on accomplishing within the next several years. The first goal is to complete my last year in high school. I want to be among the people in my class that will walk in Constitution Hall in June 2016. Secondly, my goal is to attend Howard University. Ever since I visited the campus during my freshman year, I fell in love with the atmosphere. I felt as though I belonged in the
During high school my teachers lectured my classmates and I on goal making. I specifically remember my health teacher using the SMART method; this says goals must be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time bound. Even though I had a great resource to make smart goals for myself, I never took the time to construct a game plan. Entering the vast new world of college, I want to improve myself by keeping several goals in mind each month, week, and day. My process starts by creating intellectual, psycho-emotional, physical, and social goals to work towards in my four years of college.
Some strengths that stand out the most in my personal life are, how I love to serve and give freely to benefit others, whether it is donating money or paying close attention to events that happen to surprise my friends with little gifts, I enjoy brightening someone's day. I am known as
I have a goal, and to complete that goal I have long term and short term goals I must complete on my journey. Within semester I hope to volunteer on campus and off campus. I want to create a new developed resume. Also I want to become more active on campus and join a club/organization. I have been accepted into Catalyst which helps club goal. My long term goals are goals that will help me in my future as a teacher and a growing scholar. I want to intern at a school , but with the advice of Cari, I want to intern for about 6 weeks to learn more of the school day and hands on working with the kids. I want to complete each semester with a g.p.a of 3.4 or higher, and try my hardest until graduation day. My biggest goal I can say is become involved with a specific school to gain more experience and knowledge about becoming an elementary

I could name a few strengths and weaknesses off the bat. A huge weakness i have is presenting in front of people a teacher may try to help me get over it but what just happens is i just start hating the teacher. Another weakness is writing historical fiction i’ll think for a few days then i’ll finally be writing to only realise that i’ve pretty much just been writing a fantasy for 4 days and can't go back. A strength i have is being able to write almost anything else other than historical fiction. A strength i have is i wouldn’t care if i had to write on paper or computer some people love paper or computer. Though i still find it easier on the computer since it doesn’t strain your hand as much typing. ANother weakness related to one a already have done is i don’t like people reading my work it’s pretty much a little less bad than presenting. One more weakness i have is i hate taking notes which could apply to many subjects other than literacy. And the last strength i could think of is my ability not to smash my computer or rip my paper into a million pieces. If i terribly mess up or just because is very hard not to completely just smash the
Everyone has goals they want to achieve. Everyone also knows it takes hard work and time to achieve them. I have two goals; I have a personal goal and academic goal. My personal goal is to get a scholarship for college. My academic goal is to get at least a 3.5 G.P.A as my accumulative G.P.A. If I get my G.P.A goal it may lead me to get more scholarships.
Some of my few major strengths are my ability to go out and meet new people that I have never met before and be able to socialize and commute with them. Adding to that is my ability to study for long periods of time and be able to memorize pretty much anything for example, vocab. Lastly, my biggest strengths is my drive to become the absolute best person and develop myself to go from being a college student to a college graduate to a hard working man. I only see myself going down one road and that is down the successful path of having a good solid job that I earned with my hard worked and earned degree. Some of my few weaknesses include reading, staying focused, and staying organized. Reading has never been a strength of mine ever since I was a child, unless it is a topic I enjoy. Also my focus level’s vary on the importance of the assignment, if it is not so much important I may not get it done a day before it is due compared to if it were a big assignment. Finalizing my weaknesses is my organization which to be honest is pretty terrible, and I will improve on it. I understand organization is a big part of becoming successful in college, and to add to that I can not even imagine how many more assignments are given out in college than to high
I think my strengths was the cooking. While I was cooking I did not stress, make any mistakes, or make it too complicated for myself. While cooking I tried to keep calm and did everything as the recipe said and in order. One of my weaknesses was deciding what I was going to cook and what I wanted to put in my lunch box. It took me a very long time to research what I wanted to do as there are so many good, healthy, notorious, and interesting foods. Once I finally made my decision I was very happy with what I made.
The strengths I currently have are communication skills, working with little children, self-driven, and be able to understand little children. These strengths are all related to my field of work. Each one of them I always plan to work on them throughout my life. My strengths vary, all depending on what content area I am currently focussing on. When I was little communication skills used to be my weakness for a long time until I found the courage to overcome that challenge.
Over the course of my eighteen years, I have learned the importance of goal setting, despite if I may have decided to alter a few of them. I have learned that goals are the stepping stones to the future and that future success requires thorough preparation. I began setting goals while I was in primary school which eventually unfolded into a reality as I began my years as a high school student. My years in high school has fostered my short and long term goals as I embark on my journey as a medicine candidate.
Some more concrete goals I have, include finding a good research opportunity for me to work for over the summer, apply and get into a good graduate school, find and apply for scholarships to help pay for my undergraduate and graduate degrees, and get good grades. These goals are while fairly large all have fairly concrete steps and ways to meet them.
Pondering about my future, I was able to identify three goals to work towards to better my life. The first goal is personal, my fiancé and I have been trying to save for a house and a car and this is the year we are going to make the purchases. My second goal is professional, in the future, I would ideally like to be a social worker. However, thinking about the immediate future, I would like to find a job that will give me real world experience in my chosen field of study. Finally, my third goal pertains to my on-line education. My goal is to graduate on-time with honors, and I am willing to work arduously for it. As stated by MacLeod, “In order to reach a single goal, several enabling or supporting objectives usually have to be met”(2012). Therefore, a plan needs to be put in place in order to reach your goals successfully.
My personal strengths are my punctuality, discipline, and my ability to stay focused among the distractions. Punctuality is very important to me. I make sure to never be late and most of the time I arrive early for my appointments and engagements. I feel punctuality gives
