I'm reading Fountainhead in my AP Lit class and it's probably my favorite book I ever read in general. It inspired me to look at myself and who I want to be over time.
  1. Continuous Personal Growth
    I'm hardly ever "happy" with myself. And it's not that I'm insecure, I just keep pushing myself to higher standards. I aspire to be a better person than I was the day before. I refuse to settle and give up on myself. I'm not looking for perfection, I'm searching for a better version of myself.
  2. Happiness in my Career
    This isn't about fame or wealth, but rather just self-fulfillment doing my job. I want to work where my morals and integrity aren't compromised. That's when I'm the happiest. No sacrifices needed here. I want to remain a complete, yet growing person.
  3. Be Secure in Friendships
    I'm a weird combination of "outgoing" and "loner." I can talk and hold a conversation about almost anything, but maintaining relationships were never my strong point. I demand extreme loyalty and honesty and that is something I have rarely received. This high ideal of mine is what makes me hate socializing and just do my own thing instead.
  4. Be Inspiring
    I want to be remembered as someone who never gave up. I am a strong person and want to remind people around me that they can do anything if they set their mind to it and to chase their dreams and goals no matter what doubts they have.
