A hero exhibits many qualities. Responsibility, bravery, and loyalty are just a few on many qualities that can be found in heroes. But to me, some of the most important qualities a hero needs are recognizing one's flaws and weaknesses, listening to others, and selflessness. With recognizing one's flaws and weaknesses, a person, a hero, can learn what they need to do to better themselves. They know the limit of their abilities and can work to improve themselves.
Because heroes range from Olympians to teachers, not all are famous--in fact, many remain unrecognized. Whether it is the volunteer raising money to end world hunger or the activist rallying against social injustice, they serve out of a genuine desire to help, not to be recognized. Some heroes
These attributes help heroes not only think heroically, but act heroically. Although there are many other qualities that could contribute to a hero, these are two of the most important. Without these two traits, heroes would probably look at a situation and ignore it. They would no longer be considered heroes. Heroes are necessary to keep the world happy and at peace.
Generally speaking, the deterrence theory is an encouraging concept but it is much harder to put into play than people would think. While humans have the ability to think rationally, people generally don’t weigh out the pros and cons of every behavior they perform. In his last hours, Ted Bundy did not want to die. But he knew that Ted Bundy would be a household name and even in his last interview, promised that there were more people out there just like
It’s because even with everything he has faced, the life he has, all the good and the bad, he has been positive. Now, I could end this story telling you ‘those are the reasons why my grandfather inspires me’. But i’m not going to do that. If I did do that then you wouldn’t get how much of a hero he is to me and why. Sure, he’s been down, he’s human.
Having an opportunity of practical intelligence is important for achieving success because people can change the situation to their desire by using practical intelligence. Even though asserting oneself is also an important requirement to succeed by appealing with confidence, better results of asserting yourself are guaranteed through capability of practical intelligence which is the ability to knows what, when, and how to say. In chapter 4 of Outliers, practical intelligence is mentioned as a key to success. For example, there is a case of Chris Langan and Robert Oppenheimer in outliers that shows the importance of practical intelligence. Even though they both have high IQ, Robert Oppenheimer succeed, but Chris Langan does not.
I, personally, don’t understand why we make “heroes” out of people. They’re just like everyone else, but we make it seem like they did something so different and so much more unique than us, and we look up to them as a person. We think that everything they do is perfect, and that’s where we mess up. There are a ton of people who we consider “heroes” who have the same character whenever they’re not on camera, but then there are some who are a completely different person whenever they’re not being
I don’t agree with “ripping” or “wiping” a hero of their hero title. You can take away a medal or an honor but you can not change the facs.They still accomplished what they did. They still put in the work, had the drive and dedication, and achieved what most people could never do. That makes them a standout. That makes them a hero.
Some people may argue Atticus is not a hero. For example some people might not think of him as a hero because he doesn't do everything an example of this is when Scout says “ Our father can’t do anything”(89). However there are many things Atticus can do like, he's one of the most honest people and he is very wise and modest. In conclusion Atticus may not fly around in a cape or shoot lasers from his eyes but he is still a hero just in a different way. Maybe that’s the true definition of being a hero—overcoming adversity and keeping those you love safe, while teaching them respect of not only themselves, but of
Most people don't really think Plagiarism can be something bad in the future. Plagiarism is when you take some else work and you don’t give them credit. Plagiarizing work is like cheating off on an important person. Anyone in this world has done plagiarism once in their life without them even knowing they have done it. For example, one the most important person that we recall is Martin Luther King Jr.
Cam has even said in an interview that he likes kids even more than adults.Traditional leadership can be effective, that’s an accepted fact. But sometimes unorthodox leadership can get the job done too. Energy, passion, and a slight touch of cockiness can inspire players, the crowd, and people across America like nothing ever seen. Even I, who was skeptical of him at first, have grown to love and respect Cam, enough so to write this
In this passage Gladwell is explaining to the reader how Bill Gates got every lucky and he didn’t have just himself to thank for his success. Explaining that he never would have been able to get over 10,000 worth of experience if a few things didn’t happen to him. Once again Gladwell uses a list to get his point across as he did before, I enjoy this writing tool because it gets the point across that there is so many reasons on how his talents mixed with a lot of luck got him to where he is today. Along with the list I also enjoy that without meaning to Gladwell comes off silently sassy with the way he writes or maybe the way I read it. For example when “Opportunity number one was that Gates got sent to Lakeside.
I understand this more after reading my LPI 360 assessment. Although, the feedback was mostly positive I have identified ways to become a better more valuable leader. In the numbers portion I received pretty low scores in finding ways to celebrate accomplishments and overtly praising subordinates for their hard work. This resonated with me because I have felt unappreciated before and I d o not want my subordinates to think what they are doing is not important or appreciated. Other tools I will use to try different leadership approaches will include the DiSC and MBTI survey.
“We all know why we are here”. This new “therapist” was my last resort. I wasn’t proud to admit it. Who would be? Some things are easier to admit than others, and admitting that my stubborn self was wrong in an argument was far easier than admitting that I needed help.
