This article is truly great ! it’s been a long time that I wanted to change some areas in my life without knowing how and being frustrated because time passed and nothing changed. After reading this article, I feel that I took my firt real step to change my life ! I have several areas I want to change in my life and I did the exercise with an easy area (area: sports /goal: semi-marathon). Trying to imagine how would I feel taking actions or not taking any actions gave me motivation and helped me to understand why I want to give more importance to sports in my life. It will be a little bit more difficult to apply this method to other areas but I’m more confident for my future now ! Thank you 🙂

Things to consider: If there’s anything you want us to know about you, but didn’t find a question or place in the application to tell us, now’s your chance. What have you not shared with us that will highlight a skill, talent, challenge or opportunity that you think will help us know you better?
Longer essays may also contain an introductory page that defines words and phrases of the essay's topic. Most academic institutions require that all substantial facts, quotations, and other porting material in an essay be referenced in a bibliography or works cited page at the end of the text. This scholarly convention helps others (whether teachers or fellow scholars) to understand the basis of facts and quotations the author uses to support the essay's argument and helps readers evaluate to what extent the argument is supported by evidence, and to evaluate the quality of that evidence. The academic essay tests the student's ability to present their thoughts in an organized way and is designed to test their intellectual capabilities.
