Keating seems to have set out to break the mold of the tradition Welton teacher. He also seems to want his students to also break the mold and think for themselves. He accomplishes this goal by showing them how to look at the world differently and showing them that emotions are not something you should bottle up, but put on a page. Keating also pushes the importance of Carpe Diem or “seizing the day” (Williams,1989). The boys, in turn, take interest in Mr. Keating’s teachings, they take the idea if they are going to die one day, to heart, and begin to live their lives to the fullest.
Critically Analyze the Ideas of Personal Goals and Motivation Introduction Motivation is literally the want and the urge to do things. It is the crucial element in setting as well as attaining goals. When setting goals, they seem to set themselves up for success. Setting goals gives everyone the motivation to complete it and keep a timeframe of how long it took them to complete that goal that they have had their mind-set on for some time. Everyone must also look at how work needs to be done to see their vision come true by any means.
On another note, Siddhartha's loss wounds his heart. Not from Kamala, but from his son. He truly loved his son. Siddhartha knew letting his son go was the right thing to do, yet he was miserable. In chapter 10, Siddhartha admitted to this misery, “He felt deep love for the runaway boy, like a wound, and yet felt at the same time that this wound was not intended to fester in him, but that it should heal.” (Hesse 126).
After a person begins, they need to continue to have faith in themselves and also know that failure is part of the process and one can grow the most from it.

He looks for happiness in another female because he thinks he’s fulfilling his duty of being a man because he provided materials to his family. He has a search for love, where he can’t get enough, and always wants more because he never got it as a child. He viewed violence as a way to shower power and in the scene with rose he tries to control her by grabbing at her, he mirrored his dad’s behavior by doing
Pangloss’s teachings boiled down to a simple belief that everything happens for a reason and that it is eventually for the best, giving us reason to never quit or lose optimism in our endeavors. This thinking can be harnessed to use every adversity and misfortune as a lesson that helps us on our individual journeys through life. His teachings also provide an understanding that each difficult part of life will sum to a greater plan, thus supplying a reason to keep pushing forward, a central theme to Candide during his travels throughout the entirety of the story. Many devastating events could have easily deterred Candide: wars, torture, natural disasters, being robbed multiple occasions, deaths to those around him, just to name a few.

I sat in the back row of Professor Cothran’s Biological Concepts class while we went over the syllabus and the typical rundown of the course. After the class ended, my dorm was my next stop before heading to Composition I with Professor Neal.
The more we allow ourselves to lose our self-control the easier it becomes to do it again. There are three things to keep in mind if we want to be successful in both learning and teaching self-control: We must become self-aware so we can pick up on cues early and take action before a major reaction occurs. We must practice new behaviours and create new patterns to follow. In times of stress we take the path we are most familiar with, making our patterns repeat. We must have a real desire to succeed.
