Prompt : Describe a circumstance, obstacle or conflict in your life, and the skills and resources you used to resolve it. Did it change you? If so, how?

I spent most of my life wondering how to live a purpose-driven life in abundance. Evidently, in my high school years, I did not gained respect from others simply because I was not smart enough. During those times, I felt desperate to find a way out of this meaningless life. It was inevitable. I was alone by myself with the imprudent thoughts about where my life would proceed as I continue to grow up with no sense of purpose for entity. It left me pondering from day-to-day how to pursue a brighter future.

The feeling of disappointment and upset cannot describe how frustrated I was after seeing all my core-classes grades plummeted during the first semester of my junior year because my parents proposed and wanted to divorce. My rank dropped out of top ten percent. I was scared to think how life would be as I continued to lose focus in school. However, my thoughts were changed after I listened to Eric Thomas since the day I walked into AVID class to watch a video about motivation. Eric Thomas was an African American who looked fifty and who stood firmly ready to make his speech. He had a prideful tone that was a mark with some life changing words as he began to enunciate, "When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful." His energy and passion channeled my mind to think positively and to revitalize a new life. I was serious! At that moment, I felt that there was still potential in myself and wasted away by not working hard to overcome hardships not only in school but also in daily life. His speech helps me grow internally and definitely a key to my success. it was a pleasure to hear his wisdom and somehow his words struck my mind succinctly. It gives me some hope and for that reason, I was able to stand up with dignity and advance forward for a better life.

For the rest of my junior year, I strived to work diligently without any excuses and by the end of the year my grades were improved by several points with some A's and fewer B's. I was also passing AP Physics and Chemistry exams. Moreover, every time I felt depressed and sorrowful, I would just listen to his speech to give me the courage to keep going. It was then that I knew why hard work is good for the soul and that every step is worth the end result.

I attribute for my success to his words and how his positive impact on my life as well as on others. He has made me keep pushing forward during tough times even when my mind would tell me to surrender. I gained more courage to face struggles. For the most part, Eric Thomas taught me to appreciate how life can be challenging at times, how life can knock you down, but also to remember that failure is the mother of success to keep me encouraged and to strengthen my will to be able to face difficulties.

Please help me with grammar issues!

The abbreviation AVID should be expanded. My thoughts changed the day I walked into an AVID class and watched a video about motivation by Eric Thomas.

His energy and passion channeled my mind to think positively and to revitalize a new life. I was serious!
