Model Answer:

Sometimes, all we need is just a little encouragement from someone to do better and become successful in life. And that’s exactly how I succeeded in achieving a goal recently, which I otherwise thought was not possible.

Now, calling “riding a car always” - no matter wherever I go and how short the distance is - is a “bad habit” that might actually offend some people, but it certainly felt like one to me. I found out that I was gaining extra pounds in my body, and my fitness was deteriorating over time. Initially, I didn’t really care much about that minor health issue since I was otherwise feeling healthy and strong. After all, I was still very much a young university-going student back then. But, when one of my good neighbours, also a practising doctor, noticed this problem, he asked me to stop using the car to go everywhere (even to go to the nearby grocery) before my health situation get worse.

He also advised me to buy a bicycle and ride it as often as I could. He even lent me his bicycle for a week to actually encourage me to start using one and get the thrill of riding this eco-friendly mode of transportation. And it was at that time that I decided to set a target for myself – a target to give up using my car every time I get out of the house in the next few months – except, of course, I just didn’t know how to do that in such a short period of time. After all, most of my friends at that time were heavily dependent on cars. But still, I kept trying, and I was encouraged by this "doctor neighbour" of mine on several occasions.

That doctor neighbour of mine was smart enough to understand my situation. So, he called me one day and told me that I was probably stronger mentally than I would like to think. He also explained some health benefits that I would likely enjoy if I pay attention to his advice.

Needless to say, his words worked like a “tonic” on me as I was able to reduce my dependency on my car in the next couple of months. After all, his kind and encouraging words had made me even stronger, mentally. Besides, his remarks and motivational words carried more weight to me since I was convinced that he, as a doctor, knew exactly what he was talking about.
