Currently I am studying for the test to become a certified personal fitness trainer. Every day I see successful people in the fitness industry and think to my self, I want to be like them. I want to help make a difference in some one's life.

I was never really good in school, by man's standards I have only a eighth grade education. During my late teens I decided I wanted to go to college, for business, and studied for my GED. I never told anyone what I was doing because I was afraid if I failed everyone would be disappointed in me. Every day for months I would get up at five in the morning, exercise for two hours, get a shower, and head off to work for eight hours. When I got home I would sit with the GED book working on math problems, I was never good in math so I thought this was a good strategy. All of my hard work had paid off I took the test and passed.

Now I sit reading this manual to do what I have wanted to do for years and I am once again afraid of failure. I never liked science, always failed science, now here is all this scientific jargon right in front of my face. I will have two hours to take the test which consists of 140 questions and the cost is $260.00, only because I am a member of Snap Fitness. I can take the test again, and I think about those in other fields who have to take exams and fail, not just once, but more than once. If I fail, I will work harder to achieve what I want.

I look at it like this I have only truly failed if I fall down and never get back up. After all it is my life. and It's Your Life, Live to the fullest, and don't give up.

  1. Before jumping into the bandwagon of immediately taking your General Education Development (GED) test because you qualified and passed the preliminary screening, make sure to consider getting a pre GED test first to further ensure that you will not only pass but get a relatively high and impressive score. Here are some tips on how to prepare yourself from the actual examination through a pre-test.
