For the most part, the jobs that I have had in the past are all different, but I have approached each one of them with the same hardworking mindset that I have. Wherever I work, my goal is to do the best that I can do every day to make the company more successful. I am a team player and I will do whatever it takes to get a job finished correctly. As an Eagle Scout, I have been taught to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent, and although those skills helped me become an Eagle Scout, I have always tried to use those skills outside of scouting too and in the real world.
In my time as a Boy Scout, I had the opportunity not only to learn neat outdoor skills, but I learned hw to be a leader. When I first joined my scout troop, I idolized the older scouts who were just on the verge of becoming Eagle Scouts. I wanted to be like them. They were nice people to be around, easy to talk to and learn from, and they had excellent leadership skills. As those guys eventually became Eagle Scouts as predicted, I became older and I had to start becoming a leader. The main leadership position I held was called the Troop Guide, and as the Troop Guide, I was in charge of making sure all of the new scouts were doing a good job with their requirements and I also was their if they had any questions that I had the answer to. That was easily my favorite part of being in scouts. I was able to teach the same lessons I learned from the boys I followed as a young scout to the young scouts who I hope had the same respect for me.
As a senior on my High School Football team, I was made a captain along with the other seniors. Our coach did that because he wanted us all to have the mindset and attitude of a captain. That season for me was not the greatest; I battled a stress fracture throughout the majority of the season. It was terrible and there were many times I didn't know if I should continue to be apart of the team only because I didn't feel like I was making an impact. I talked to many of my teammates about my thoughts and they told me that even though I wasn't getting the playing time I wanted, I could still be a valuable asset to the team. Knowing that motivated me to become a better team player. I helped teammates who may have forgotten a play or needed help with any technique, and at the end of the day I could still hold my head up high because I know I made those around me better
Philmont is a boy scout ranch out in Cimarron, New Mexico and every year many boy scouts have the chance to put their names in a lottery and be able to go. In the summer of 2015, me and eight members of my boy scout troop were able to go. We rented a big van and drove the 1,400 mile ride down. Throughout the two weeks that we hiked, we faced a lot of adversity. There were some issues between a couple of the scouts, which was bound to happen considering we were spending all that time together and we all had different personalities. We had to learn how to work well together even if we had personal issues, and I feel that is an important skill to have in a work place too. We also had countless injuries, whether it was an almost deadly blister infection, a sprained ankle on the middle of a hike, or a concussion. We had to prepare for the worst on this trip and we were. We were able to handle those injuries professionally so no one got seriously hurt. Preparing for those types of situations is another helpful skill to have in the workplace because you never know when everything goes wrong and you need to work yourself out of it without negative effects. That time I spent at Philmont was another event that helped me become the leader I am today and I use the same skills I learned their in my every day life.
