Personal Narrative: My Goals In The MLB

Good Essays
As a kid, I always wanted to play professional baseball and live up to my dream to play in the MLB. I had high expectations for myself, and I was really determined to achieve my goal and live a successful life. I was convinced for a long time that playing baseball was the right choice for me, but that has changed over some time.

Success is something that one can not give up on, even if the situation is tough. Steve Jobs is considered one of my biggest role models because the fact that he never gave up and turned out to be very successful is something that is very powerful to me. If later on in my life I am going through a tough period of time, I just have to remind myself to not give up because if I give up, I won’t be successful but if I persevere and achieve my goals, then I know I will be
