Reba McEntire, actress, singer.
I agree with Reba McEntire’s statement, to be successful you need to have a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone. You need to be able to wish, have big dreams and be creative with your wishes. You need to be able to stand your ground, tell people their place so you can continue your dreams, and best of all you need to have a funny bone; you need to have the ability to laugh at your mistakes, learn from your mistakes and move on. That is why I agree with Reba McEntire when it comes down to being successful in life.
Having a wishbone is important because being able to dream, plan and make goals in life is a must in order to live a successful life. Having a wishbone is like a small child living in an orphanage and making a wish in middle of the night, wishing for a family. As a child I always dreamed to help those who are in need. I dreamed of running a soup kitchen, a shelter or even a group home for kids with troubled backgrounds. As I continue my path to become a child and youth worker, I’ll need to have a wishbone in order to succeed.
Each person needs to own a backbone. Why? Because you need to be able to stand your ground and defend yourself when the going gets tough. A backbone gives you the ability to put people in their place so you can move further towards your life’s dreams. Having a backbone is only going to make you stronger in the long run.
The last but not least, and best of all: you need to have a funny bone. A funny bone gives you the ability to laugh and learn from your mistakes and then be able to move. A funny bone is powerful, beneficial and rewarding, and with it your confidence will bloom.
In conclusion, I plan to use my wishbone, backbone and funny bone to fulfill my goal in the journey of becoming a child and youth worker.
