"There is no secret routine, there is no magical number of reps and sets. What there is, is confidence, belief, hard work on a constant basis, and a desire to succeed"
I have come to realize that in life nothing is handed to you. Anything and everything you want, you have to work for. Hard work is the key to success. I believe that anyone can be successful if they have confidence and have a strong work ethic.
My role model is my grandfather. He is the hardest working person I know and has inspired me since I was young. My grandpa is one of the most successful people I know. Even though my grandpa didn't have the highest paying job, he has worked long and hard enough to buy all his grandchildren a car on their 16th birthday. My grandpa is a perfect example of how hard work and dedication will lead to success.
My grandpa is so influential in my life because I know if I ever need anything he will be there for me. That goes for everyone in my family, if they need help, my grandpa is the man to call. I have the most respect for my grandpa because his motivation to succeed has inspired me to do the same.
"A Day in the Life of a Primary Care Doctor" by Candice Chen, helps me better understand the daily routine I may go through as a doctor. Days are long and super busy as a doctor, there is almost always patients waiting on you. The job is stressful but doctors know they are truly making a difference in their community. The administrative tasks given to primary care doctors leads to busy days, frustration, and little time for patients. (Chen 1). Being a primary care doctor seems like a demanding job, but I know they really help the community with the work they do. I would enjoy being a primary care doctor, even though they make less money than surgeons, they seem to help more people on a daily basis, and that is why I want to be a doctor. To help people.
