When I was younger I had many fun yet regretful experiences. Looking back, I never expected to be the person I am today. Seemingly insignificant choices can have a great impact on a person’s life. Now that I am 15 I feel older and wiser. I often think of how I could’ve given myself a better future. We learn through experiences and with it we try to prevent failures. However these are the failures that help us learn from our mistakes. If we could, we would all want to advise ourselves for a better future. One thing I would tell myself would be to prepare for track. I never expected to join the track team when I was younger.
What started as a way to earn school credits became a hobby. I started track last year and I always regret not starting sooner. Track helped me become more social and active. I made new friends that share my common interest in running. I also feel healthier because I am more active. A great day of exercise always brightens up my day. Track has also taught me many life lessons. It showed me the importance of determination and that practice makes perfect. The extra practice and effort you put into track eventually pays off. Being a better runner is something you can achieve with practice.
Tiger Woods is one of the best golf players in the world today. His talent could be explained through his childhood. Woods began playing golf ever since he was the age of 2. Since then he won over 14 professional major golf championships. Athletes are where they are today because of their numerous hours of practice. If I had the chance, I would’ve begun preparing for track sooner. Endurance is something that can only be built up by running more. If I began preparing sooner, I would be in a better position today. I would have better personal records as well as more medals from races. Preparing early is like getting a head start in a race.
A bigger head start gives you a better chance of winning. This advantage can be seen when comparing professional and new runners. Rookies don’t have the same stamina and therefore can’t keep up with professionals. “Paul, begin training for track. You have a big athletic future ahead of you. In order to prepare might as well get a head start now. Good Luck! ” Medals, personal records, and the devotion can only be achieved with experience. Music was a gift to me and I regret tossing it aside. When I was younger I was forced to play piano. I took piano lessons every Tuesday and Friday at 6pm.
I admired the beautiful sound of piano and enjoyed several classical pieces. However ironically I didn’t enjoy playing the piano myself. I didn’t know if it was either the teacher’s or my fault. The teachers were strict but I also admit that I was terrible. Lesson after lesson I would hate playing the piano more and more. Eventually when I graduated from junior high school I quit piano. Now, after 2 years without piano, I regret my decision. If I could, I’d advise myself to continue to take the lessons. Piano is useful to know how to play if you are interested in music. I think piano is like a gateway instrument.
It prepares and teaches you different styles of music. This may range from Jazz to Rock to Hip Hop. You become familiar with the beats and learn to read musical notes. Pianists might want to experiment with other instruments such as drums or guitars. The passion for music grows as you become familiar with it. If I continued to play I might’ve tried the drums for fun. Music is a fun talent to have. It can help brighten up someone’s day and also relieve stress. Most of my friends that play piano are good at it. Sometimes they play piano just to show off. Other times they play it for their own amusement.
I was given the opportunity to play but I never went through with it. Now I’ll never know if I would’ve grown up to be a musician. “Paul, don’t even think about quitting piano. I know it seems boring right now but you’ll regret it in the future. These piano lessons will benefit you in the future. Endure through the suffering now and it’ll all pay off later. Good Luck! ”Giving up piano is a decision that I wish I never took. Growing up I regret not spending time to do what I wanted. I had so much free time after school. I would spend most of my times playing games at home. Those countless hours of gaming prevented me from other activities.
Time gone by is gone forever. As I grew older I realized I started to lose those extra hours. I began to be more occupied with homework, essays and projects. As I entered high school my schedule became busier. I had schoolwork, track practice and homework to do when I got home. I wasn’t even able to play a single game even if I wanted to. I would advise myself not procrastinate so I wouldn’t do it in the future. One thing that I always wanted to try was swimming. I never learned how to swim but I wanted to. Swimming lessons require a lot of time and it’s something I don’t have.
I wish I decided to try swimming when I was younger. I had more time to do other activities than I do now. There are many other opportunities I would’ve taken if I didn’t waste my time. The free time also led to procrastination. Back then I used to procrastinate and it sort of became a habit. Leaving work for the last second always caused stress and sloppy work. When it came to the last second I was forced to do the work. I didn’t manage my time and would have to pay for it. This is a bad habit to acquire especially in High School and College.
For me it became a habit I couldn’t break and I still deal with. Paul, put that controller down and go take swimming lessons. Yes, those swimming lessons you said you would take but never did. This is you’re only chance before you become busy in the future. P. S. Stop procrastinating. Do your work ahead of time and be more organized. Your procrastination is going to become a habit unless you fix it right now. Good Luck. ” If I could, I would do everything I wanted to do when I was younger. I had more time and would have less regrets. If we could, we’d change our past to bring about a better future. An advice is an opinion offered to guide us in some way.
