Trying Hard to Be Successful

By Ive Brissault  |   From : West Palm Beach, Florida  |   School : Royal Palm Beach High School

Trying hard to be successful, it is challenging, have you done it? In fact, not everyone do that
today, you want to known why?my opinion it is because of the technology is more advanced , now people prefer to use their phone than use they mind. As a matter of fact, if you not even trying to write this memoir and just copy from Google, that means that you are not trying hard.
Like if going to school and you fail one class you gonna think you did not do enough work. My point is falling make you concentrate more it make do better than before ,I say it and I always gonna say it again, if you want to be successful you need to work hard and never give up.
I remember when I first came to the United States, I was feeling kind of nervous ,especially when I heard that I was going to school. I use to say, “I not going to school in this country”, my Dad would respond, “You have to Ive, if you want to succeed tomorrow”
During my first year in Royal Palm Beach High School, I was kind of shy and I thought I would never make friends with other people. I thought if I say something they were gonna laugh at me. But one day, I have no idea how it happen but I woke up and was excited to go school. I think it’s because people told me it was going to be ok, I remember a neighbor Thomas told me, “Ive school is good, don’t be afraid”
After one week I continued going to school but I was still kind of scared. I ask myself a lot of questions, like what am I gonna say if people in the school said something to me? How hard was work going to be like? But when I was in Ms. Jimenez’s class, I realize things were going to be good and I didn’t need to feel scared. I made two friends and kind of felt happy in school. Now I feel happier at school than when I stay at home. Now, I am focus on my school work to get a diploma and go to College. I know that is not going to be easy. I take life like video games, you know when you play a game the first part comes easy, the next step become more challenging, and the next more and more challenging. Easy life is not your solution, you have to try hard and use your mind to be successful.
