Sample Answer 1
I think motivation is very important in life. Without motivation or inspiration, it is very difficult to achieve goals in life. Some people get motivated internally while some rely on others to guide or encourage them. Today, I would like to talk about my brother who has always supported me in whatever I have done and his guidance has helped me achieve many goals.
My brother’s name is Preet and he is a Captain in the Indian Army. He himself has been successful in everything that he has done in his life. He has been a topper throughout his academic and professional career. Whatever challenges life has thrown at him, he has always cleared them successfully. At the same time, he has also helped me to become successful in my endeavors. Recently, he helped me in achieving my fitness goal.
For a long time, I wanted to join the gym and become fit. But I was not regular with my exercise routine and there was no one at the gym to guide me. My brother came home for 2 months’ vacation and I shared my problem with him since he is from an Army background. He told me that he will join the gym with me and he helped me plan a routine for my fitness.
We started going together to the gym and throughout the training, he pushed me to give my best performance. Within a few weeks, I could see changes in my strength and fitness levels. After a period of 2 months, I was able to achieve my fitness goal. I can perform a lot many exercises without any difficulty and I was also able to complete a marathon race. I
have developed a lean muscular body and wherever I go people always ask me how I was able to do it. I always give the credit to my brother who stayed with me and encouraged me to achieve this goal in life. In the end, I would like to say that, like my brother, I also try to motivate people to work harder and fulfill their dreams
