My Road To Success
One thing I have always wondered is what’s success well Terry Fox showed me exactly what it is its heart, dedication, and determination. Well if you don’t know who Terry Fox is well he was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 18. He had cancer in his right leg and the doctor told him if he didn’t get it amputated it would spread to his lungs and kill him. He also said you can get a metal leg so terry’s family got it for him. In the 1980’s terry started his marathon of hope cross country run in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada then months later he was a little over one third of the way there when he had to stop in Thunder Bay because the cancer had come back. Then a few months later he died.
The impossible could be possible if you set your mind to it and never give up. Make allot of goals and push yourself to achieve them. Never get frustrated know matter how hard it is even if you did it wrong you tried. People will say you’ll never be able to do it but you if you work and put allot of effort it will be a piece of cake. Did you ever here the expression life’s a game every good thing puts you up and every bad thing puts you under. The same goes for madness it’s only a mind game it doesn’t hurt to let it out of your system.
Always go the extra mile to get far in life and if you ever take a short cut your most likely to get in trouble. Never ever do things you aren’t comfortable doing because at the end of it you’ll most likely be more scared. If you’re scared think only happy thoughts it will help calm you down. Everyone will be frightened sometime in life like Terry Fox was when they told him he needed surgery. Well facing your fears will never be easy but if you do face them you’ll feel great. These are some of the reasons Terry Fox ran across Canada and these reasons will help me on my road to success.
