When I was a high school track athlete, I started as one of the worst people on the team. I saw the success others were having though, and I wanted to experience that myself. Over the course of my high school career, I worked as hard as I could to become as fast and strong as I could possibly be.
As I worked, my times started to improve. With each personal record, I felt a sense of success and accomplishment, not because it meant receiving a medal or having my name read in the school announcements the next day, but because it meant I had competed at my best ability.
In the process of working to be my best, I saw that I could help younger teammates who didn't think they could cut it. I saw I could be an example they could point to and say, "If HE can do it, why can't I?" Knowing I could be an example, in turn, allowed me to grow more and helped fuel the drive to get faster.
When it was all said and done, I certainly wasn't the fastest on the team, but I ultimately graduated as an All-State athlete with 2 school relay team records.
That pretty much sums up how I go about life. I may not be the best, but I will give 100% of what I have to become the best that I am capable of. And in the process, I'll use my experiences and lessons learned to help and motivate others.
In short, I am Ambition. Always evolving, never changing. My life is a story that I'm telling one page at a time.
