If I could earn a living doing what I love most I would be a professional athlete. Being a professional athlete is something I have always dreamt of. It is an affluent position. While being beneficial to my life, more importantly it would enable me to share these blessings with our society.
In order for me to achieve this dream I would have my work cut out for me. The first step is getting into a four year institution and playing for their team. After that only excellence, persistence and resiliency at my sport along with strong academic performance will grant me a chance at being a professional athlete.
I would give back to the communities I came from and help those in need. No one is able to make it anywhere in life without help. If I was to become a professional athlete there would be a laundry list of people that I would be indebted to. Charitable donations or even creating my own organization to help others are ways I would show my gratitude and pay it forward.
Also, as a professional athlete I would exhibit model behavior. In doing so, I can give anyone looking for inspiration to be a better person someone to look up to; as I do with my favorite athletes. We all go through struggles. I have had my own share of trials and tribulations. My achievement paired with my attitude could be a precedent to anyone that any obstacle can be overcome.
