Topic (thesis statement): Be thankful for the people you have in your
Goal (purpose statement): Make my audience realize how
important their life is why we should take advantage of the all the
opportunities we have out there in our reach of our hands.
Introduce a situation to my audience with an unrealistic situation. (A Situation
that happened to one of my long-life best friends)
Preview main points:
1)Appreciate your life more
DONOT take people for granted
3) Don’t Judge Situations!
Main points: 1) Appreciate your life more
Lets back track to our own life, we tend to be handed opportunities
right at our finger tips yet don’t take full advantage. For Example, Christian
he was smart but he let the party life get to him, he focused more on his
appearances and money itself.
coming from a family that taught me the meaning of life and how seek all those
opportunities like achieving success in a business or landing your dream job it
really is possible if you are willing to put the work into it. Christian wasn’t
just any party stud no he was also involved in bettering him in fact he did
some real estate as well as signed up for college. What it is, is we don’t take
advantage! Any of you sitting here could do anything on your own. You don’t
need anything put your own motivation and well-power.
Transition [Now that I told
you why you should appreciate your life more I will now tell you why you
shouldn’t take people for granted.]
As we get older are family tends to
become busy and our friends slowly fade away. We can be the ones too busy or
the ones fading away it always seems to me as everyone cares so much when
someone passes away yet wasn’t there half you were alive.
to New York times in 2012 they stated that many students don’t appreciate their
parents they tend to take them for granted the waking up in the morning
spending all their money they have on the school events yet the students don’t
subpoint: As you can see many of us live day by day and don’t realize
when a friend goes out of them to make us feel special or our family member
shows they care and why is that? Because we have high expectation just how my
stepmom told me one day don’t expect just appreciate this is so true more than
ever now that I don’t have my best friend the fact that I could simply call him
to annoy him through out the day or ask him for advice I miss that and Ill
never have that. I can’t go back to let him know how thankful I was for taking
his time whenever I had a question no matter what he was doing or if his
girlfriend was jealous of me he always answered.
Lastly I will tell about why you shouldn’t judge any situation unless you have
all the proof in the world which most likely you won’t]
When my friend was in a coma, I
was at work till midnight when I got home I opened my computer and I saw on
social media many comments some already stating he had died others saying he
was stupid, the news even stated he was drunk driving while others said he was
on drugs. People don’t understand how much this can hurt someone when they
don’t have the proof especially for a family member. I just remember how upset
and sad I was at the moment that people judge his situation with knowing the
Subpoint: After the truth was laid out to everyone that he was in a
tragic accident by making a sharp right turn people still decided to say he
deserved it. Before I was in the same boat I always like to have a say in
something sometimes without knowing the truth just to be part of it.
Subpoint: Just remember that making a comment could
really affect a person, last week I posted a picture of Christian on my
Facebook a girl commented something really rude on my picture than two hours
later she deleted after she realized that I paid no attention to it. It really
hurt in fact it hurt a lot and it took awhile to let it go but I thankful I’m
stronger than what other kids have to say. So what I want you guys to get from
this is just don’t judge or talk about something you have no idea or some idea
about because it really affects others.
Review main points: 1) Now
that I’ve told about why you should appreciate your life more you should go out
and search for more opportunities and see what is out there waiting for you.
2) Also while your busy out there
searching for those opportunities don’t forget about the people you mostly love
and take on this journey with you.
3 Lastly along the way of your
journey you will encounter many different situations remember to be a bigger
person don’t judge, don’t be part of a crowd who spends their looking on other
people flaws or making things up.
Closing thought: Now remember if you have someone you care
about don’t forget to make that extra phone call today because you never know
what you have till it’s gone so why wait? Call.
