The quote “You can’t be anything you want to be, you can only be what you deserve to be.” means if you don't want to put the hard work into something that you want, then you will not get what you are after. When I become an adult I would like to become a professional NHRA driver. To be a professional at anything you have to practice to get better. Practicing is the hard work. If you don't practice, you are most likely not going to be good. If I become an adult and I don't practice racing I will probably not win races. You have to put the work in if you want profession. Being a professional NHRA driver would impact my life a lot. It would impact my life because I will know that anything is possible as long as you put the work in. As a student wanting to be an NHRA driver is what drives me to work harder and harder at not only racing, but to listen to what people who motivate me say that I could benefit from. What I mean is I got to see a professional NHRA driver in person once, and When I told him that I wanted to be a driver like him he said to talk to most of the other drivers, and they will tell you the same thing. The other drivers will tell you that they took after people who motivated them to be what they are today. Those people are the ones that helped these current drivers be so good, because they pushed these people to work hard and not give up, until they reached there goals in life.
