“If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again” Failure is often a better teacher in life than success. Because we go through so many things in life, both good and bad, we have to learn from our mistakes and hope we won’t have to go through them again. One may consider success as being a major influence on whom we are to date, but in all reality it’s our own failures that help us learn, encourages us to keep going, and prepares us for future failures that are bound to happen. Failure is by far the only way we can truly learn, and by doing this you realize the mistakes that you’ve made. You learn how you should have done things in order not to make the mistakes that you did.
“Well-intentioned parents who want their children to be successful in school can place so much pressure on the kids that they resort to cheating” (American federation of teachers). To improve this, teachers and parents need to be mindful of how their students feel and need to not push them as much. You could see why people might think cheating is okay and vital to succeed, that doesn’t change the fact that it’s wrong and that you should talk to your teachers about how you
It is hard to see a student struggle everyday and not look at them in a negative way. I begin to expect bad behavior so it makes me prone to see their bad behavior more than others. This is definitely something I struggle with and want to work on, patience with kids. I believe my most important strength is my willingness to learn and try new things. I want to continue to improve as a staff, coworker, leader, and teacher.
As they are students, mentioned in the previous paragraph, the workers at Great Clips are learning. So, they have a teacher in one ear, and a customer in another. This complicates things, because if a student is not understanding what a customer wants, they could interpret it to mean something different from what it actually is. So, where they might be doing the right thing for what they interpreted, they are actually doing something completely different than what the customer wants. If, on another hand, the teacher is nearby and the student has made a mistake in their interpretation, the teacher can defend the student and their position because of the job being done correctly, despite it not being what the customer wanted.
Overcoming adversity is never easy, especially when someone has been beat down multiple times before. Whether it be from a physical beat down of bodily struggle or a mental struggle, adversities and challenges can be defeated by knowing the right concepts. Many people everyday continue to overcome what hinders them and push through their challenges by having the right mindset and to deciding to try. A person trying to overcome something needs to have a strong backing to keep them motivated during slow times and tell them never to quit.

Your discipline is the bridge between your goals and failing. When you work towards your goal you want to have good discipline because why would you feel ashamed or fearful of what you are doing? Just know this, if you think of little goals you will achieve little accomplishment, if you set big goals you will achieve big accomplishment. When you know you can’t achieve your goals, don’t adjust your goal but adjust the step towards your
Lipman supports her claim by proving that statistically, disciplinary teachers are improving their students, students that don’t show grit are proven to seek failure, and the further teachers push their students, the more goals they’ll achieve. The author’s purpose is to express the ideals of strict teachers and to inform readers and students that teachers are hard on them for a reason. In order to indicate why students shouldn’t feel threatened or frightened by tough teachers, Lipman also shows that teachers are improving the learning environment. I strongly agree with the author’s claim on how tough teachers receive astounding results. A primary reason I strongly agree with Lipman’s claim is because she demonstrates certain statistics that show how strict teachers are improving their students more sufficiently.
In fact, obstacles are a necessary impetus and a driving force in our lives to keep us motivated towards our ultimate goals. Overcoming these obstacles requires hard work, motivation and confidence. When overcoming obstacles we learn to work hard to achieve goals and push through challenges. Sometimes obstacles are punishments to help us find the right path and learn from our mistakes. A common example of this would be failing an exam, this is a small obstacle that can easily be overcome by figuring out our mistakes and fixing them.
Teaching the students self-control is important and takes time. Students will make mistakes but teaches need to make the mistake a learning tool by teaching the students a better way to conduct themselves.

We need to instill confidence in our students not talk poorly to them. Chapter Five-The Quiet Man (76-89) As I was reading this I was thinking that it was written just for me.
A person 's comfort zone is a place where they feel safe and secure, or in control. People are scared to try something different because of the thought of screwing up their system of being in control of their lives, or failing it what they set out to do.

This tells people that if they do new things that they will end up having some type of failure, but it will be beneficial learn to from their
