A lot of people feel like they want to just give up. Like they have nothing left to work for. Well they shouldn't want to give up, they should have a drive to work harder, and that's what I believe. Although this is only one of the many thing I believe in it is very important. I believe that when you persevere it always pays off in the long run. There's this one song where he sings “When you try your best but you don’t succeed” 2This motivates me to try harder and work for what I have.


There is this youtuber named Jake paul and he really is an inspiring person and doesn’t respond to any hate he receives, and never promotes negative things. He doesn’t like it when other people Make fun of rape victims or Families who suffered from suicide. Not too long ago he went to Houston Texas and bought 2 jet skis with his own hard-earned money and went to save people who were stranded in their houses and brought them to safety where the state had shelters set up for those people who couldn’t stay at their homes. During this expedition he filled 2 huge u-haul trucks with food water and blankets and brought them to the shelters for all the people who couldn’t afford the things during this time of need. Im sure it was really hard for him, but he used a lot of perseverance to get through the tough times along with the citizens of Houston.

Now how this connects to my personal life is that I think it is a good motto to stick by because no matter what if you try your best, you're usually having fun. I think it is Important to believe in Perseverance because if you're not getting up every day and liking your doing, then you shouldn’t be doing it. The big goal of life is to obtain happiness in your life and enjoy what you do on a day to day basis. Waking up and wanting to be alive and loving your family, friends, classmates, co-workers, managers, bosses, and customers. You shouldn’t do a job that you don’t like big makes you money, because you won't be happy after a while of doing it every day. You should find a job that you like doing, even though it might not make you as much money as the last job. IF you play a sport that your not so specifically talented in you shouldn’t stop playing because there are kids who are better than you. You should work hard each time you practice to become better than everyone on your team. There was this one time my hockey team was losing 3-1, we didn’t give up, I scored 2 goals in the 2nd period. The next period my teammates scored 2 goals and the second goal came in with 10 seconds left on the clock. It felt good to win and show them we were good enough to play in the league.

Perseverance will always be a big part of my life and will always help me be the best that I can be.
