My Personal Inspiration Essay

481 words - 2 pages

        A woman who has not only changed and motivated my life has inspired me. Not only has she inspired my life, she also gave life to me. I have watched her struggle through many hard times and prevail over the obstacles laid before her when others said she would not make it. She succeeded, when destined to fail and never lost hope in times of hopelessness. The woman I speak of is my mother.

        My mother started out as a below average person who appeared to have no promising future or a future at all. She didn't have an outstanding education; she wasn't the perfect person by far. She worked at ...view middle of the document...

        When there seemed to be no hope of making it, her hope and faith only grew. She kept working hard and in doing so she was finally rewarded with a descent job. She became the manager of a truck stop. She was determined to give me, her son, all that she couldn't have. The new job, although better than the last, still only paid just enough to get by.

        My mother was not going to settle for just enough, she wanted to give more to me. She wanted to prove to everyone that she was somebody. She worked twice as long and twice as hard as the people she worked with and in doing so was noticed by a man who owned a chain of extended stay lodges. This man admired my mother for working so hard and decided to give her a chance. She was now the manager of an extended stay lodge.

        My mother had proved everyone wrong and became something everyone said she couldn't be. Still this was not enough. She provided for her family well but wanted us to have more. She worked harder then ever and got yet another promotion to area manager at the lodges.

        My mother struggled for many years but never once thought of giving up. Although everyone put her down, she never thought or wished bad upon them. She only proved them wrong. My mother inspired me in so many ways and still inspires me today. Because of my mother I know that no matter what anyone says, if I work hard and never give up I can do anything.
