Many people work toward something in order to improve themselves. This act of aiming toward something in order to achieve it is called setting a goal. Achieving goals usually improves the person who is setting them. Not abandoning the goal teaches the person discipline, and achieving the goal will improve the person as well.

This year, I would like to bring my grades from B’s and C’s to A’s and B’s. In order to achieve this goal, I will pay attention in class instead of talking to my friends. This is important so that I do not miss anything that the teacher says in class. In addition to paying attention in class, I can also begin studying every night and make sure that my homework is completed before class.

Achieving this goal is important to me because overall, I will be a better and happier person.
I strive to improve my grades and my relationship with God during this school year. These two...
