Life is about striving

Life is about striving. Everyone wants to aim to own something that gives us purpose and happiness. I believe it is important to reflect from time to time about our individual life’s purpose. Every time I reflect, I see that I mature and I succeed more with my plans. Whenever I reflect what I want to be in life, I examine the present roles I have and think about my desires. This question will serve as a guide for my future plans. It will help me figure out how I can strive for purposeful goals with the current responsibilities that I have. It will be a key to keep me motivated and achieve high success.
The first role I want to examine is one as a student. As a student, I am striving hard to excel in my academics. I am hoping to get impressive grades so that I will be respected by my professors and peers. I also know through academic excellence I will be able to gain connections with the career path I have chosen. I want to enter the Philippine Military Academy or Philippine National Police Academy. I want to use my knowledge to help people in need. I believe peace is a priority for everyone and I have the heart to help others maintain it. I plan to do this by not only getting good grades but also by striving hard to graduate. I will aim to be the best version of myself so I will not be set to failure. I am a strong believer of aiming for high goals rather than getting loss in my self-doubts.
The next role I will reflect on is a family member. I want to make my family proud of me. They support my studies and work so I hope to make know that this goal keeps me motivated and strengthens me whenever life gets complicated. Therefore, I should always keep my family in mind with everything that I do.
The third role I want to review is as a community member. I believe one important aspect in total success is that a person should also be loyal with his home environment. I find that the people I admire most are generally good citizens to their hometowns and country. I want to contribute more to my neighborhood by volunteering at our local hospital. It will not only help me gain experience for my peace making career but it will also make me become more prominent in addressing the community needs. I find that I can help my neighbors overcome the struggles they face in critical crisis and I want to begin my advocacy as soon as I can. I believe that being a good neighbor is essential to having a peaceful home and a more purposeful day. There are several desires that I strive for in life. I can see now there are many steps I have to take to achieve success. I believe finding purpose and happiness may be hard. But I also believe by keeping my goals in mind and having good reflections on them success can be realized.
