I have chosen “Overcome” as my word, because it is a skill I value, and I think it is an important skill to become successful in life. There will be many situations and problems in life, and not all of them will be easy. Being able to overcome these situations, will only make a person ┬ástronger and more confident.

Overcoming is being able to find solutions to a problem that is hard to solve either physically or emotionally. Overcoming problems can be anywhere, and any time, from a problem at school, during competitive sports, or out in the woods. Why overcoming is valuable to me, is because it shows many traits that are important in being a good person and a successful leader, such as problem solving, patience, decision making, and taking initiative.
