But if you already knew about your past experiences, you will probably be very discouraged in everything you do. Sometimes not learning about your past might do you good deeds. How much do YOU think past experiences can shape a person’s attitude and
I chose The Autobiography by Benjamin Franklin. I am very familiar with it because I did a project on it, so I will be able to explain it in greater detail than if I had chosen another story. It was quite enjoyable and informative, too, so I find it interesting to discuss. The Autobiography is about Franklin’s journey to become a better person. He originally wanted to become perfect, but he was never able to achieve this goal.
I am looking for happiness. I find that my biggest strength is learning from my mistakes. I have always told people that I would rather them tell me what I did wrong then let me believe I was right but, it seemed to really hit me after a low point of my semester. I realized that I can either dwell on my mistakes or take them as a new lesson. I have been looking back on my first semester and though it was my lowest of low points, I now see overcoming it as one of my proudest moments.
I fear began to rose as I soon realized I was about to go on. My dad asked me one last time if I really wanted to do this, as much as I wanted to say no, I didn’t. The reason why I didn’t say no is because I did not want to look like a total
He also states “Didn’t I realize that reading would open up whole new worlds? A book could open doors for me. It could introduce me to people and show me places I never imagined existed” (3).In this phrase, he thinks about things he didn’t realize and starts to think more about what reading can do for him. He claims “Books were going to make me “educated.” That confidence enabled me, several months later, to overcome my fear of the silence” (3). In this quote, he advises himself about what the outcomes of literacy would be, which is educated.
He advised that his reasons for not allowing me to present anymore were his choice to make. If there were no consequence, I would choose to tell him about how I felt regarding his decision not to allow me to present anymore, and in my place send someone who lacks the commitment. Therefore not representing the unit accurately and
That was my first mistake, expectations set too high can cripple the spirit if things don 't work out as planned, which mostly, they don 't. I learned that after not receiving the call I was promised by the manager himself on the day he set with his own words, to not get my hopes up so high for anything that I wasn 't ready to lose or fail at. My second mistake, even if you are taken down from the horse 's back, you should always get back on and keep going, which I didn’t do until my friends helped me realize that. The other point I learned was that maybe my answers weren 't up to par with the manager, even though it seemed like it. I spent the next week learning better ways to ace an interview, a few things being to know the material, relax, and stay
I was given the choice of one of two paths, one that was amusing and the other serious. I took the amusing, after all I had recently overcame at the time the absence of my stepdad however, I was soon caught up by a wakeup call. The wakeup call was what I had in store for my future and how I was managing my education and how I lost a grip of my vow. As a light of hope, I came to reconsider my choosing of one of two paths once again and I chose Early College Academy and now I am on the path to
Benjamin Franklin said that if someone makes you have to buzz in order to enter somewhere and you follow the instructions you should lose your righteousness and welfare. In benjamin Franklin’s time it would've been acceptable to just enter in without following the instructions but that's no longer well founded in our
Holden conjectures that beautiful and mirthful moments should be long-lasting and that time be stopped for the sake of stability. With this in mind, Holden opts for avoiding reality altogether. Doing so guarantees in Holden not having to accept how distinct and amended his friends and peers are now than when he had last seen or spoken to them. On the hand, if Holden were to bear the fact that everything and everyone has changed, he would have to acknowledge that it is time that he grow up or change as well, something which is very difficult for him seeing as how he is unwilling to lose his innocence. Consequently, this induces Holden to deluding himself steering clear from reality.
