Work Fields
My Goal
My goal is to first graduate from High School
JK Rowling is an inspiration to me because she is one of the best writers of her time. She wrote the Harry Potter series while living in England and struggling with poverty. She took her first story to 12 different publishing companies before one finally said yes. With every no she became more determined and did not give up. JK Rowling is an inspiration because she never gave up even through all the obstacles put in her way.
Each of us has different reasons to have motivation
MaKayla and Jahmila aspire to be writers while Anna and I aspire to become workers in the medical field
Suzanne Collins is inspiring to me because she is very talented and successful. In these past years in her life, Suzanne has been very successful with her book trilogy called The Hunger Games.In my opinion, Suzanne's greatest achievement is having all of her Hunger Games books be made into a movie
Throughout our lives, we will set many goals for ourselves; some are big and some are small. However most of the time we abandon these goals. So, how are we able to motivate ourselves and stick to the goals we seek to accomplish?
Her enthusiasm for the advancement of occupational therapy and the stimulation which she provided were sources of inspiration for students, therapists, and personal friends

In five years, my goal is to be in college, I would have successfully completed my associates degree and would then be working towards my bachelors degree. I will also be working part time at the hospital to help pay for college.
My goal in five years is to live in a nice apartment in New York .
I will also be writing children's illustration books.
"I chose to become an ER nurse because I thought it was a job where I would never get bored." ~ Sarah Carlson 28
Then I would get admitted into a college and get my associates degree in occupational therapy making me an occupational therapist assistant, and working my way towards becoming an Occupational Therapist.
 "It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might has well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default." ~J.K. Rowling
My Goal in 5 years is to be an author. I would like to have at least one book published and be working on the next in a beach house in St. Augustine
 "The most important thing is to read as much as you can, like I did. It will give you an understanding of what makes good writing and it will enlarge your vocabulary." ~J.K. Rowling
"Flush." ~Robert Fulgham
I think this quote is good because its symbolic for when life isn't going great you can just let it go and try again. This is good for a writer because when you're writing and you feel like it's not very good you know its okay to start over with new or adapted ideas.
Tranquility- Be not disturbed at trifles, or any accidents common or unavoidable
" Benjamin Franklin -Pg.93
"Lose no time. Be always employed in something useful. Cut off all unnecessary actions." ~Benjamin Franklin
I like this because it's saying how you need to stay busy and productive. How can you write a 500 page book while slacking off?

"Order: let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time."
~Benjamin Franklin (pg 93)
This quote will be useful in achieving my goal by being organized and assigning certain tasks a specific amount of time to be completed in.
"The gratification afforded by the triumph was a full compensation for whatever else might follow, even death itself"
~Fredrick Douglas (pg 430)
This quote to me means that after you accomplish something that you worked very hard for, you feel so rewarded that you'd do it again even if it killed you.
"Live a balanced life-learn some and think"
~Robert Fulghum (pg 96)
This quote is useful for being successful in reaching goals because it means to not only learn things, but to think about them as well. For example in psychology, its encouraged to think and argue about the theories taught.
Don't hit people-Robert Fulghum
This quote means to me that even if I am frustrated with myself or something else, I should not resort to doing something unnecessary that will mess up my goal.
INDUSTRY : lose no time; be always employed in something useful ; cut off all unnecessary actions. - Benjamin Franklin
This quote is basically saying to me that I should not get side-tracked on my goal because if I do get side-tracked, then I will never finish my goal.
"Telling a story in a futuristic world gives you this freedom to explore things that bother you in contemporary times."-Suzanne Collins
To me, this quote gives me an idea on what I would like to write a story about.
"I resolved to be like him"- Zara Neale
This quote will help me achieve my goal by giving me the motivation to persevere and remind myself that accidents happen and all I have to do is jump over that hurdle and move on to the next one with grace.
This quote is important to me because to me it's telling me to find my inspiration and to strive to be almost like them when you grow up so that it will help you with your goal.
"Destroying things is much easier than making them" - Suzanne Collins
I like this quote because I feel like it relates to everybody when they mess up
In conclusion, we will stay focused by deciding what we want, being confident, seizing our opportunities, being prepared, staying positive,and believing in ourselves.
When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together
-Robert Fulghun Pg.96
This quote will motivate me by reminding me that sometimes I will need help someone to walk with in my journey so don't fret embrace with open hands whatever may come my way
but at that moment-from whence came the spirit I don't know- I resolved to fight
" - Fredrick Douglas Pg. 429
This quote will motivate me to achieve my goal because I see that no matter the situation you may be in if you fight and stick it to the end you will receive what you fought so hard to get
