Everyday I pray to inspire someone. Before I close my eyes to rest I think about the people that I encountered and the impact that I had on them, wondering if it was positive. My happiness stems from appeasing the raging storms that drown others. Even if the person is a complete stranger, their hurt becomes mine. Because I am always in pursuit of helping others, becoming a Counselor will allow me to relieve turmoil and impact our world by decreasing negative thoughts and actions of others. A clear mind and guidance can set a condemned soul free. If peace is brought to our people then it will spread.
To achieve this goal, majoring in psychology is a must. Gaining a complete understanding of the mind and how it works, and understanding the different psychological and personality disorders is crucial. This helps each person be treated individually. Becoming healthier physically and mentally is also detrimental. This will help me do my job effectively, and practice what I preach. Finally, some volunteer work amongst counselors will help me apply it to my work.
By obtaining all of these goals, a promising career as a counselor will be awarded to me . This will allow me to spend my time doing something that soothes my soul. Most importantly I will be genuinely happy, because I know that I am making a difference. Not only that, but I am changing the world one person at time.
