Table of Content

I have accomplished many things in my life that I am proud of.  Most of them I’d have to admit were academic, as that is where I have spent most of my life thus far, in school.  I have won spelling bees, made the honor roll, achieved high grades on tough assignments, and completed complex projects.  I have also done very well in sports.  I am an avid fan and player of basketball and soccer, and have achieved a great sense of accomplishments from these sports.  All of these accomplishments carry with them a sense of pride that can only come from hard work and dedication.  But none of these things are as meaningful to me as my decision to follow in my father’s footsteps.

My father started his own company from the bottom up with hard work and dedication.  He has instilled in me these qualities and proven to me that they pay off if done honestly and at the right times.  I look up to my father.  He has always been the perfect role model.  That is why I take so much joy in the fact that I have decided to follow his path and one day become the head of his company.

Many people walk through life not knowing where they are going or how they will get there.  I am certain of my path.  At my age, futures seem so far away and unattainable, but I realize that mine is right here in front of me, staring me in the face.

I have made the decision to attend college and major in business.  This will fulfill both personal and career goals for both me and my family.  While my father has never made me feel like I had to join him with his company, he has certainly done well in providing for us and being an ideal citizen and role model for his children.  I can only hope to be as successful as he is.  This is why I hold pride in my decision to follow in his footsteps.

While I am not yet the head of my father’s company, and have not even yet completed the training necessary to do so, I know that my greatest achievement thus far is the decision to do so.  There is so much to look back on in my life with pride and so much yet to look forward to.  But I know that the moment I made the decision to work with my father and learn his trade is the most prideful moment in my life.

I am proud because I can see my future.   I am proud because now everything I do has specific purpose and meaning.  I am proud because I know what I am working toward and I know that I will not do anything in vain and will not waste my time or money pursing an undeclared major in college.

My family has always been supportive of me in my academic and sports endeavors.  Now they are the foundation on which the rest of my life will be built.  They were proud of me when I made the decision to follow in my father’s footsteps, and I was proud of myself.  To this day, it is my greatest accomplishment.
