A world of dreams

For many years jobs such as doctors, accountants, and corporate executives

were considered high profile . In the last decade, careers in the field of law have

become more important due to the increasing number of lawsuits. One of my

many long term goals is to become a tax lawyer. This is a goal I have held near to

my heart form several years. I can see myself walking into a packed court room

with my Italian suit and penny loafers on. The court room grows silent as my

client pleads not guilty. The judge raps his gavel and a court date is set. It is a

goal that is very distant and may change, but it is one goal that I must strive for to

achieve. For many teenagers this is the leading cause of failure later in life. Many

people loose their focus. A wise man once said, "Dreams are what life is made up

of." This statement is true in the sense that if you have dreams you have

something to look forward to; something to focus on; even something to live for.

Knowing that you are a VIP is important in the decision-making process.

To accomplish your dreams, you must first face adversity in the eye and

conquer your fears. For me personally, training to be a lawyer will take time and

commitment. I must constantly look at where I am now and evaluate where I need

to go from here. There will never be a time in your life where you are at the top.

You must keep climbing the ladder of success. Fortunately I know that. I have a

good G.P.A., but I know there is always someone smarter than me, so I continue to

expand my knowledge.

Also, there are many obstacles that will stand in my way. Most of the

decisions I will make in the next ten years will have a profound impact on me as a

person, and society as a whole. I hope that we, as the graduating class of 2000,

make good decisions because we are the future. Whether we choose to be drug

addicts, alcoholics, or thieves will change the way people treat us and look at us. I

know that things such as drugs will only hurt me, and my performance in school.

That is why I have made up my mind to never compromise my life or values due to

peer pressure. There is only one way for me to get where I'm going and that is

through hard word and determination. I must get my high school diploma as well

as go to college.

The truth of the matter is that good people sometimes fail. But if they

really care, they will not go down without a fight. Many times the people you

think care about you most will be the ones who lead to your demise. If your

friends are truly your friends, they won't make you do something you don't want

to do. It is okay to say no! There are no problems so big you can't solve them.

As long as you have your goals in prospective, you can accomplish them.

Part of being a teenager is growing up, knowing your limits, and taking

responsibility for your life. There are consequences for every action you make

(small or large). Having goals is about keeping your focus. Don't forget to see the

big picture. When a situation arises, you must act--not react. It is important that

you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Everyone around you is effected by the way you

talk, act, and express your feelings to others. Ronald Regan once said, "If you

don't have a dream, any road will get you there!" In other words if you don't have

dreams, you don't have direction.
