When one bowls, his goal is to get a “strike” at every frame. On the lane, one tries to aim for the center pin because hitting it will most likely result in a strike. I relate to this analogy because I always set goals. My objective is to aim for these goals throughout my lifetime. In addition, I must never stray from my goals or choose to do something idiotic. This is analogous to a bowler throwing the ball into the gutter. Therefore, as I grow up and progress, I must try to “keep the bowling ball on the lane,” and aim for a strike so that I achieve my goals.
