Statement of Purpose
Playing a sport in college has really opened my eyes to the real world and the struggles that will come with finding a job, specifically in the field of business. Playing a sport (baseball) where seven out of ten times you will fail will show you that life isn’t always going to go as planned. You are going to have to bounce back from failure and deal with competition. I want to show people that athletics, through all the ups and downs, can really prepare you for the real world by giving you the necessary skills to start a foundation for success. My audience will consist of college athletes and anyone interested in playing sports in their lifetime. I want to explain to my audience how the structure of sports and the hard work and dedication of sports can prepare someone for the workforce one day. I want my audience to look at my pictures and captions and see how I am comparing the two things. I want to explain to them that failure in sports can teach a life long lesson to get past hard times. I want to create a slide show on PowerPoint that shows and explains how the sports are challenging, but have useful qualities such as leadership. I want my classmates and others to be able to receive and understand the message I am trying to display without my help or presence and by simply viewing my PowerPoint presentation. One thing I want to want to compare/argue is how leadership in sports prepares you for the business world. I want the audience to look at the questions I ask and try to deeply think, “Wow I never thought of that!” I want my audience to realize some of the stress that comes from sports and see things they do in a whole other way. My concern is that they won’t see it the way I do, confusing the message, so I will have to find a way to interact with my audience in a way that everyone will understand. I think I have a good argument my only goal is to make the audience see what I see.
