Listening to these Edge CD’s have impacted my life a lot. This has changed my way of thinking, and actions toward things. These CD have taught me to not be afraid but to try things out, and that if I didn’t succeed and I tried my very best I would know that I didn’t fail, but that I have only succeeded. It also taught me to keep positive thinking that has made a very big difference in my life.
In seventh and eighth grade I never had lost a race for hurdling, I always won my races, and I beat all of the other Junior high schools. I went into this year thinking I was going to win, but it all changed when I got put on high school varsity. So I had to keep the mindset that I had to do my very best, and that’s what I did.
I’m a ninth grade freshman, and I love track and field. I was a freshman on the varsity team and did the 110 meter hurdles, and the 300 meter hurdles. I never thought that I was that good to be on the varsity team, but I trained and worked hard and tried my best. I always had stayed positive when I was about to run even though I might lose. Even though I never won one race that whole season, I always had that mindset that I’m next year going to beat my hurdling teammates. I’m grateful that I’m able to learn these things now so I will be able to keep this information from the Edge CD’s for the rest of my life.
