It really does seem like every semester or every year, I did this in high school as well, that at the end of that period I wouldn’t have the grades or achievements that I wanted. I would tell myself that next semester I will do better, try harder, and strive to be the best that I can be. But then that time comes and I go back to the same way that I was before. Why do we do this? Well the first thing that pops into my head is that…we’re lazy. Yes that does play a pretty big role in the problem, but maybe there is something more. Something else that I’m afraid of is trying my hardest. Sounds strange, but it’s true, the reason I feel this way is because if I don’t try my hardest I can always fall back on the fact that I didn’t try my hardest. If I do try my hardest and fail, then what, what can I say to myself. Whether it’s school, your job, or maybe a hobby. I’ve always been taught to try your hardest in everything you do and if you fail then get up and try again. This country would be in so much better shape if people actually did strive to be the very best they can be.
