If they don’t then they need to go to a mental therapist because happiness is the first way to become successful. Remember that happiness means a lot and plays a big role in how I would define success. So remember in the beginning how I said “my English teacher said How do you define success”. Well I said all the things how I define success in my own words. The things I said was good grades and having a good amount of money, achieving your goal, and happiness.
Only by working diligently and persistently toward our goals can we attain success. With endeavor and perseverance, Edison invented the light bulb which is beneficial to the world and many athletes win award in sports competition. No one can achieve success without striving strenuously and insistently. Maybe some people think that success is owing to good luck, but these people do not pay much attention to the person who obtaining success works hard and tenaciously until he succeeds. Success means a multitude of effort and insistence.
I used to dream about growing up to be just like them! As I got older and got a sense of reality, I couldn't help but start to doubt that I could ever be like them. I would even compare myself to others and think how I could never be as talented as they are. All of this really brought me down. In just a few weeks, I went from this happy beam of light to this self-doubting rain
This quotation fits perfectly with my component of success. The quotation shows, in order to become successful one must take the opportunities given and work really hard at them to become successful. Gladwell makes sure readers know these successful role models didn’t make it to where they are one their own. Some people get more opportunities than others, likely because they have astounding effort. You need to have enough talent and drive to get the opportunities, then you have to seize
It’s impossible to lead a life devoid of disasters and set backs. Most of the world’s successful people have had times when they’ve had good reason to consider themselves to be failures. That was the experience of William James, who said: ‘Take the happiest man, the one most envied in the world, and in nine cases out of ten his inmost consciousness is one of failure.’ It isn’t a sin to fail; the real crime is to a failure to attempt. There was an American who failed in business in ’31 and was defeated in politics the following year. Two years later he suffered another business disaster.
I tried my best to act like those kids in order to fit in, I changed so many things such as my attitude, my clothing, my hairstyles and how I spoke in the span of one year. I was so desperate to feel like I was not alone and had real friends that I basically would’ve done anything for others to like me. This was a stage in which I desperately wished I could have weave in my hair and look like all the other
In the world, music creates a place where people can rant and relate themselves to when they’re going through whether it’s family issues heartbreaks, or celebrations. In my life I go through similar problems, and there is always that one song or lyric that you’re able relate to and it fully describes you. That song for me is R&B/Gospel artist Mary-Mary’s song “Walking.” I say this because it shows how I am ambitious and humble. In the song “Walking” there’s a lyric in the chorus that describes me greatly. In the song it says “Look at me, I’m trying everyday I fall down make mistakes try again”.
A person may set a goal but if they do not take any actions to reach that goal then it is not considered a success. It takes perseverance and being able to learn from failure. Success takes patience, time, and effort not giving up or backing down. There normally is
These are some of the goals that I have set for the short term but for the long term I would like to maintain an active life and keep my health the best it can be. Like I mentioned before I must succeed in my spiritual life. This area is much more important to me than any other area because when you succeed in this area you will succeed for eternity. When I say eternity I mean it literally because I believe that we either go to heaven or hell and when I make it to heaven I will know I have succeeded in life. The King James Version of the Bible in Mathew 25:21 says "His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord".
It's an absolute pleasure to know that the people I helped were able to inspire me. I can't wait until I'm able to get that feeling of inspiration next year. For awhile I felt that I would never make it through high school because I could not get over the fear of talking in front of people. The 8th graders were more outgoing than I was when I first joined. They had no trouble coming up to me and asking for my name.
