My life can be described in a few different ways. Many people, objects, and events have a strong influence in my life. Anything that describes my life contributes to myself concept and constructs me. The three beliefs that I hold very close to myself are family, working, and sports. Without any of these, I would not be where I am today. All these people/events are what drive my life and influence me to become a better person in this world. To start off, the most inspiring and influential people in my life is my immediate family. They are people who inspire and influence me to help describe myself concept. To start off, my parents are the people who guide me through life. They teach me right from wrong. They are two people who tell me to make the most of everything. They inspire me to do my best in no matter what I am doing. Both of them teach me that working hard is what gets you places. They inspire me by telling me how to become the best person I can be. They drive me to fulfill my goals by keep working hard. They motivate me because they know what is best for me. As for my brothers, they motivate me become a better person and to tell others how to be better people. Having an older brother has always put me in a position where I am being motivated to be a better overall person. Having a younger brother teaches me to help him and tell him how to become a better human. They both influence and teach me how to be a better person in different ways. The second belief that describes me is working. Without working, you cannot get anywhere in life. Working teaches people how money doesn’t fall from the sky. You have to put effort and hard work into something in order to get benefits out of it. For the summer, I work at a beach club. I carry chairs and umbrellas down to the beach for members. It is hard work by carrying these objects to and from the beach all day long. It may not be the easiest or most exciting job, but at the end of the day it is worth it. The money is not even the best part of the job. Working shows me that without hard work you won’t get anywhere. My job has taught me how to deal with others and has influenced me to become a better person and work hard for anything that I desire which is happiness which comes from making money. A goal in life is to become successful and make money in order to hopefully support a family of my own. Lastly, one more belief that inspires me are sports, specifically lacrosse. It influences me to work alongside with others. Same as working, I need to work hard in order to get better and get a positive outcome. Lacrosse has not only influenced me to work in a team but it also is a sense of comfort because whenever I am stressed picking up the lacrosse stick will help calm me down. Lacrosse is a sport where it teaches me to work hard to become better, but also teaches me to work with a team which is important when it comes to getting a job when I am older.
The way my three beliefs will demonstrate my box are very similar. Each belief is based off of one another. It is almost as if it is a domino effect. To start off my family teach me everything I need to know. They will be the front piece of my box because they teach me everything when growing up. They are the people who try to make me a better person to the outside world. They are the forefront of my life and without them then I would not be where I am today. The second row of my box will be working because learning how to work hard is from my family. Working is what makes me happy and teaches me determination and motivation. When I look at pictures of working then I realize it motivates me that I need to work to get places. To conclude, the last row of my box will be lacrosse. Lacrosse is fun but family and working teach me that becoming a better all-around and hard worker are what get me better. It is still present in my life and will be present in my box but everything is a domino effect in my life. So without my family I would not know what working really does and how it affects me. If I didn’t know how working affected me then I would not cherish the sport of lacrosse as much as I do.
