I feel proud and excited when I got a chance to join Denver Ethiopian Community soccer team. Every week, we trained to improve our talent and fitness to become the best team in the tournaments. I felt like I was a favorite player from the rest of the team because of my talent, discipline and skills’. At the time it was easy for me to break through for the first team. On the other hand, I often felt out.
INTRODUCTION An essential part of life for the human race is the pursuit of happiness. Therefore, it is not surprising that there is a lot of research on how to reach for it. In the past there have been many claims on happiness. One of the most common believes is that happiness can be purchased. According to Dunn, Aknin & Norton (2008) it is not how much money is available but how the money is spent that has a positive effect on happiness.
His attitude in any aspect is what made him wealthy. While Thoreau’s riches may not have been tangible, the riches were still there in his mind. A designer put it best when she said, “There are people who have money and people who are rich” (Chanel). That statement shows that it doesn’t matter what kind of riches you may have in this lifetime, because in the end, the intangible riches are the ones that will matter the
In our world, people usually associate success with either money, money, or money. Success shouldn’t be about how much money we earn, how good our job is, or how famous we are. It should be about our own personal goals and aims in life. I think everyone’s definition of success is different. For each individual, success is something that makes them feel proud.
They said that it is one of the most competitive place to cheer at. They are a twenty time NCA National Champions. I know a girl that cheers at the University of North Carolina. Her name is Gabbi and I would like to be like her one day. She has one more year of college and she is a flyer I know her because her fiance was once my babysitter and he went to GW and then went on to play football for UNC my family still keeps in touch with Ryan and thats how I know her.
The definition of this seven letter word is neither fixed nor limited because honestly, it is interpreted quite differently by the billions of inhabitants of this earth. I personally believe that success is the reaching of a three-pronged goal: true and unquestionable happiness, living a life of appreciation and positively impacting the lives of others. Therefore, a successful life can only be met by pursing your passions, maintaining healthy relationships, and above all, putting self-approval over the approval of others. The media wants us to believe that living a self-centered life, involving nothing but a personal pursuit of money and fame
I was so excited and proud of my team, and right then I realized how much all my hard work paid off. Everything that I did over the summer, and in the beginning of the season had led me to this moment. It felt amazing to score my first goal in high school. My teammates all ran over to hug and high fived me. “Upper Arlington goal, by number 15, Lucy DeVita!” My dad announced with a smile on his face, and his arms in the air.
Income of individuals is the element that enables people to acquire what they need. To assure happiness, at least, people have to cater for basic and some common luxury. The level of happiness, however, may differ depending on an individual level of income with high-income earners suggesting increase happiness while those are earning lesser suggesting reduced happiness. Well-Being is a subjective attribute and as such cannot be calculated using any analytical method satisfactorily and people will be happy differently despite earning the same amount of income. Not only depends on how much you earn, it depends on how you spend your
I played well my 8th grade year and wanted to impress the varsity coach. So I attended every camp, workout, and winter practice to hopefully even get his attention. Even if I didn’t perform well I made sure I would always hustle and have a great attitude towards the game. The first day of practice I went and warmed up with the JV squad. In the middle of stretching the varsity coach shouted at me, “Green!
In Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, he describes his feeling and thoughts on pleasure; he discusses that pleasure is good and that the feeling of eudaimonia is connected to pleasure. Eudaimonia, also know as the term for happiness in Greek, means “a contented state of being happy and healthy and prosperous” (dictionary.com). Aristotle describes happiness as the main purpose of all human lives and that it is absolutely the essential goal for all humans. I disagree with Aristotle’s statement that a life of pleasure cannot be the best life because just because a person finds pleasure in different ventures other than being virtuous doesn’t make them an animalistic person. Aristotle indicates that pleasure is the most necessary part of unimpeded activity, but pleasure on it own, can be unintended from an activity; in which pleasure itself would develop from activity without any type of drawbacks.
Most Americans share the same belief that money, fame, and material items will bring them happiness. While, also maintaining the idea that happiness is something everyone is entitled to and that each person is responsible for their own happiness. However, my definition of happiness differs. I define happiness as a state when life fulfills your needs and you are satisfied with your inner self. Happiness is contentment.
I ran to the 45 to the 35 to the 20, hoping to find the kick returner. 8 months waiting for this moment all the sweat, pain, 100 degree sun beaming UV rays to my face. I kept going for the guy next to me performing to the best to his ability. Success was the result of all the hard relentless work done throughout June into August. I acknowledged that my team had a good group of seniors who were high character student-athletes I spent most of childhood with.Ultimately finishing with a record of 3 wins and 7 loses taught me many lessons on becoming a better person and
Every year our officer team helps the YMBL, Young Men’s Business League, of Southeast Texas to put on a Special Needs Rodeo. Many school’s life skills programs from all over the area come to enjoy a day where they can be themselves and have fun. There is nothing more rewarding to me than to see these kids happy and to give them the chance to feel included. I have been incredibly blessed with all the opportunities the FFA has given me. The FFA takes students today and transforms them into leaders for tomorrow.
Even those who have reached success in this dream and become enormously wealthy still only care about their wealth. People such as John D. Rockefeller or Andrew Carnegie built themselves up from nothing, but money remained their only concern. They gave no particular care to their workers or economic monopoly. While rugged individualists may not have the same interests in capital, an entrepreneur or up-and-comer still needs money in some shape or form to survive. Ultimately, this influences their dreams.
They persist, generation after generation, virtually intact, even as the economic and social and demographic conditions that spawned them have vanished, and they play such a role in directing attitudes and behavior that we cannot make sense of our world without them.
