What Would You Do For What You Want


What are you willing to do for what you want? People are willing to go to different extremes in order to achieve their goals and dreams. While some are prepared to do whatever they deem necessary, others set very strict lines based upon their own moral code.

“I’d do absolutely anything possible in order to achieve the goals I’ve set,” sophomore Jonathan Clarke said.

Based upon personal factors and the will behind the work, people spend different amounts of times and make different sacrifices to achieve these dreams. They push themselves to different points, whether it be mental or physical, to achieve their own lofty goals.

“I’m willing to work as hard as I need in order to get what I want, but, not if it means hurting others in the process. What I want isn’t more important than what anyone else wants, therefor it wouldn’t be fair to build my success by breaking someone else’s,” junior Reagan Burchett said.

The importance of the goal in comparison to another’s social well being is important as well. One has to be careful to not hurt others in the process.

“I’ve lost countless hours of sleep and time away from friends in order to maintain my grades. Of course it’s not easy, but it’s worth it,” Burchett said.

It also matters if it would interfere with other points in a person’s life. If the dream is not important enough, then that person will not sacrifice anything that would make life too difficult nor anything that would make it less enjoyable.

“I started as an alternate on JV A soccer and worked hard to become part of the roster. After blood and sweat, I got more playing time as the season progressed. When I put my mind to something, I stop at nothing to achieve it,” Clarke said.
