Hard Work+Positive Attitude=SUCCESS

I was four-and-a-half years old when I started karate, and six years old when I started playing in the Patel Orchestra.  In karate, I’ve just earned my black belt, and in orchestra, I’ve auditioned for the String Symphonia Orchestra.

I have applied positive attitude to my orchestra. Teamwork in the orchestra is like someone offering a present with a bazooka at your head! you have friends and enemies, but no matter what, you have to work together, or else!  I have friends and enemys, but sometimes, I find myself helping my enemys to find the audition room or telling them about the audition schedule.  There is also performing.  you have to be way more careful than when you practice.  You have an audience, and you have to do the routine much more carefully than you did it in the rehearsal.  You have to watch the conductor, know your part, and tune properly.  Performing in the orchestra takes a lot more than knowing how to play the instrument.

Karate takes a LOT more self-discipline than you might think.  In fact, half of karate is self- discipline!   Self-discipline is also a sign of respect.  Karate always begins and ends with respect.  Respect always serves you and everyone well.  If you respect someone else, they will give you respect back (that is, if they are not evil or mean).

These are examples and proof of this post’s title: hard work and positive attitude=SUCCESS!  (almost like 50+50=100,)  except you need a goal to get anywhere.  In both subjects, I helped people out, gave them tips, helped them focus and even set an example.
