We all want our own things in life. But what is stopping us? Is it Money? Family? Peers? What do we have to do to get what we want? There is no magical formula behind it. The answer is simple, but the journey is difficult. If times get tough, we can’t back down and quit right away. We must keep our eyes on the prize and keep moving forward because pain is temporary. If we suffer a little right now, we can celebrate later with achievements that last forever.
Coach Bivens, the track coach of FVHS, has told us all year that he was going to buy a really nice Corvette. We all looked at him like he was crazy because we didn’t think he could afford to buy such fancy things with a teachers salary. However, he was determined to get what he wanted, despite limitations. He had to sacrifice a lot by saving a lot of money in order to buy his corvette. After years of saving, he now pulls in to school with a brand new corvette. All the teachers and students can’t help but stare at it.
Bivens told us he got the car to motivate us and remind us that if you want something, we have to take time to actually go get it. We can’t let our dreams stay as dreams, we need to find a way to make it a reality. We must remember that nothing comes easy, if it was easy everybody would do it. That’s what separates the successful and everybody else. Weather we want to buy a new corvette, get a six-pack, or get good grades we can always get it. The only thing that can stop it from happening is you.
