The American Dream
Dreams can be big or small, sentimental or materialistic, from wanting five dollars to a nice car to world peace and everything in between. Everyone has dreams in life, they are what make the world turn, but only the person dreaming can put forth the effort to achieve that dream. I have a dream to become a cardiologist or heart doctor, which requires me to graduate high school, graduate college, and graduate from medical school.
Although it won’t be easy, getting my high school diploma is the first major part of my dream in which I’ll need to get good grades, attend school, and give my best effort. Getting good grades is a key step to graduate high school. To do this I’ll need to attend school regularly and give my absolute best effort. ...view middle of the document...
In the next step, graduating college, I’ll need to be able to force myself to go to class, make the grades, and not get distracted by college life. During the college years it can be much easier to skip class and not do your work, considering you don’t have parents to get onto you or teachers that are caring. If I end up going where I want to, the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, it will require my ever most effort not to get distracted, especially by the life style. I will most likely join a sorority in college which can result in multiple distractions added to the list. With all my list of distractions I’ll need to prepare myself in advanced and stay organized. It will require me to keep my self motivation up and make sure I plan out plenty of time for both work and leisure. College will provide not only memories, but a diploma which can lead me one step closer into my dream career.
The final step in succeeding my goal of becoming a cardiologist, I will have to graduate medical school. To do this I would have to stay focused, be committed and have the endurance to make it through. If college is successful, I will hopefully be admitted into a medical school, where I will be in the home stretch for my dream. By this time I might be getting sick of all the school I’ve gone through but I’ll have to stay focused on the outcome and keep endurance. Although I might want to go out with my friends, sometimes I’ll just have to stay home and study. In the end if I keep the right mindset, receiving that last diploma and knowing I’m at home base will be worth my wild.
Overall to achieve my dream I will need to graduate high school, graduate college, and graduate medical school. This will test my strength, confidence and willpower, but it’s all worth it to achieve my goal to become a cardiologist.
