It is very important for a coach to have a philosophy about what he or she wishes to accomplish and what they want their athletes to accomplish along with the winning. Although the benefits of teaching and coaching can be questioned by many all it takes is that former or current athlete showing up one day and saying, “Coach thanks for all you have done for me, I couldn’t have done it without you.” and your ready to get going all over again. The levels of coaching that I hope to coach someday will be elementary all the way up to High School. I need to be around our club wrestling team at a young age, this will help teach the kids the things they need to know at an early age. It will also help build a powerhouse team by the time they get to high school.
Trying something new can be a scary experience. One of the most nerve wrecking things I had to do, was join the Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) program during my high school years. I decided that I couldn't let the fear of “striking out” keep me from playing the game. The JROTC program has had many effects on my life; the program showed me leadership, better communication skills, and loyalty and patriotism. I became a leader influencing people by providing purpose, direction, and motivation; while operating to accomplish the mission and improve the organization.
I've watched some of my peers give up and as a student with exemplary leadership and role model qualities, I chose to overcome those obstacles to show my peers that a little hard work goes a long way. That is why I would be a valuable member of the National Honor Society. To be considered for membership, I understand that an assortment of personality and character traits are vital factors. With leadership as the head, I've been able to develop into a character of integrity, respect, pride, responsibility, and dependability. I've stretched myself by taking harder courses, and trying new things.
For instance, by setting my expectations high, it will be easier to reach my goals that I have set for myself. Like succeeding in class as a senior at Boone Central, and being a successful athlete. To help me reach my goals I will study and work hard on the court, to maintain the responsibility of becoming an adult. In the end, expectations are a responsibility that I agree strongly on, because if you don’t expect to be successful, you more than likely will not be. Responsibilities are one of the other main parts of Barak’s speech.
This was a great deal for me because a lot of the students that were underneath me, looked up to me as their role model even though I was still learning to be a great karate student myself. Once I had overcome these obstacles I was ready for my black belt and the duties that came along with it. When I received my black belt I had an immense amount of self pride because I proved to myself that I had the strength to overcome obstacles and reach my goal. Later, I had to earn the credibility of being an amazing karate student; this created a job opportunity for me. The head instructor asked me to work for him and told me that I had thirty days to prove that I was worthy of the job.
Without my mom keeping track of where I am mentally with everything and helping me to balance all that I had or have going on in my life, or my dad to push me athletically to reach the best and do my best to be better than the rest. But no one can forget their coaches, or academic advisors, or mentors throughout high school or middle school. Those first few people you look up to for what to do, what is right and wrong, or who to go to in situations and talk to. These people are the first step to anyone’s success, including mine. I always felt that my parents, coaches, and teachers were always harder on me than others on teams, or my siblings and classmates, but I’ve come to realize what their intentions were and why.
Lastly he taught me how to be loud and serious when I needed to be like he often was. Mr. Scurlock also helped me with his motivational skills in the long run. I say that because the things he motivated me to do will help me when I am applying for college and any future jobs or job that I have. Because of Mr. Scurlocks’ motivational skills I am in to trying new thing I have yet to do, and my High School and FFA career would not be what it is today without Mr. Scurlock and his awesome sometimes annoying and loud motivational
I was working, taking care of my son as well as going to school. It is not as hard as these girls put it out to be they just aren't trying hard enough these days. I am very proud of my self because I decided to further my education and make something of myself. I am ready to make this big change and step in my life and make my family proud of
Gabrielle Lener National Honor Society Acceptance Request Letter 11th grade The Race Towards My Academic Goal When I first received the invitation to apply to the National Honor Society (N.H.S), my initial thoughts were of appreciation for the recognition of my hard work during these past academic years. To think of myself as a member of the N.H.S is an honor that could have a profound impact on the future I would like to achieve. Over the past several years, I have driven myself to be self-motivated and I knew the only person that could do that was myself. To be considered a member of this prestigious organization is both an honor and a challenge to continue to improve my mind and leadership roles as I embark upon the journey of a higher education. Being chosen as a candidate for membership of the N.H.S has caused me to reflect on my personal achievements.
The Spirit in Work Thank you Josh And Alexandra for a really great presentation, you set the bar high. Jack Hawley's book, The Spirit in Work, came at a great time to reflect and bring to life his ideals. The start up of school has really made it clear who is leading with love and who is leading with fear. Reflecting on my own past style of leadership in the classroom, I would say I was a mixture of both. My fear that student's wouldn't take me seriously lead me to make choices that were far from loving.
