Overcoming adversity and obstacles can be some of the greatest struggles in life. Any type of challenge or draw back that someone faces will have some type of effect on their life. If it is something minor like being embarrassed or a major issue like a death, it will leave some sort of impact on the person, but their job is to overcome that barrier. Some ways to defeat obstacles are to never give up, understand failure, accept rejection, and believe in oneself. One key aspect for people who are trying to rise above adversity is to never give up.
Hardships and Challenges Life offers many routes and pathways. Some of those roads demand more effort and energy than others. Humans often choose a certain path to walk based on their emotions, instincts, and desires. The author Jefferson claims the best way to go through life is to choose paths involving the fewest amount of enemies and calamities; however, he is only partially correct because there is much to be gained from taking on the aggressive dragon-filled challenges life offers.
(Check your gut) this is a great point because often time’s people have great ideas and great instinct but because of self-doubt, laziness or fear we don’t take action. One of the main differences evident in both pieces of writing, Throughout both pieces of writing we are able to see that hard work is a necessary aspect in life as well as when starting your own
Unfortunately, her malicious words stir up even more trouble than there already is. This is because whoever reads the letter rethinks their situation and eventually that is the only thought on their mind, causing them to act out. Specifically continue with the same behaviour but, exaggerating it. An example of this in the Short Story “The Possibility of evil” is when Miss Strangeworth sent a letter in the past to the parents of a young girl in the town named Linda Stewart about possible nefarious behaviour hidden in the area “Linda Stewart’s parents would never have been aware of possible evil lurking nearby if Miss Strangeworth had not sent them a letter”. Due to this letter Linda Stewart has been crying constantly!
and she dies evil. She never has the chance to change her fate because she never realizes the evil within herself. She likes the power she gets over someone when she blackmails them using their darkest secrets and once she exploits those secrets. Steinbeck intended for her to be a force of evil seen in people’s lives. “To a monster the norm must seem monstrous, since everyone is normal to himself” (Steinbeck 75).
Influential Ambition Ambition is one of the hardest driving forces in a person’s life. It can push people past their limits to achieve something great, but can be dangerous when it causes them to bypass good judgement in order to succeed in their goal. In both Into Thin Air and Macbeth, Rob Hall and Macbeth are strongly influenced by ambition from inside and outside. This ambition, good or bad, eventually leads to both of their downfalls.
Many consider determination to simply be willpower, but that is not the case. Determination is an ingrained character trait that must be developed over time. It will become a force in you that will see you through the toughest challenges and allow you to overcome nearly impossible odds. Determination is a key factor in all success. Have you had a situation where determination saw you through, where you were told that you couldn 't do something that you wanted to do, or that you were not good enough?
Life will always have its setbacks, but it is those unfortunate circumstances which will build up a human 's character and disposition; “What doesn 't kill you makes you stronger.” - Kelly Clarkson. Roman poet Horace wrote, “Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant.” I completely agree with Horace’s perspective of the way people operate, adversity can be beneficial in the development of a person 's character. Difficult situations can draw out people’s hidden aptitude in which under normal situations they would have remained undercover.
"But why did he do it?" That question, many of us ask in a lifetime to understand the meaning behind the actions of what a person has done. Mrs. Kittredge had to make an important decision that could have impacted two friends in the story, “Cover-ups”. Also, in “Good Guys Always Win” the character Good Guy also has a decision to make that could impact his life on how people could perceive in such a way that to him would be horrible. Who had the more difficult choice, is in a way hard to make a selection, along with trying to know if the person did make the right decision is also hard to understand.
Equality is an ideal in which many people believe is worth fighting for. But it is indeed a dangerous goal to achieve both physically and mentally. In the story “Harrison Bergeron”, equality shifts to torture in which the beautiful must hide their beauty, and the intelligent must have their thinking to be disrupted. The result of this quest is disastrous and the land is filled with slow people, therefore there is no variety in the community. Equality is achieved, but at the price of freedom.
No matter the place in the world there are always leaders and followers, but sometimes there are people who take their own route. Within The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, Junior is that person who takes his own route. This is because of all the conflicts surrounding him. Junior’s decisions were impacted by the conflicts around him because he wanted to try his best to escape the hostile environment he was in. When people are facing adversity they don’t want to accept what is happening they want to fight back.
The stoics philosopher believed in life, many obstacles will be thrown our way that are not within our control. In many cases, these incidents can make one’s life difficult-whether it be by death, illness, unemployment or a natural disaster. Unfortunately, the Stoics imply that we have little to no control over the difficult situations that confront us. The one thing that is feasible to do is to act in a way that promotes a change in one’s emotions and desires in our actions. On this view, the stoics worldview is rational and structured.
Failure is often viewed as some sort of horrific monster that must be escaped; it doesn’t have to be this way. Anytime we don’t achieve our goals it hurts; that’s just a simple truth, however oftentimes it is nearly impossible for us to separate the temporary heartbreak and despair from failure from something that is more permanent. Instead of letting the fear of a temporary setback take over we should look forward towards the future. Even though it is often nearly impossible to realize in the moment every failure brings a chance for growth and change.
In everyone’s everyday life, we all encounter obstacles. Big and small, important and not so important, we must face these obstacles as they are presented to us. If we push these obstacles out of the way and continue to ignore them, it will eventually come back to bite us. However, if you push through and be persistent it can lead to something even better in the long run. A time when I had an obstacle that I had to overcome was my freshmen year of soccer.
Challenges are obstacles that everyone face. Whether they are for game shows, tests, or mental challenges, they all stump people and force one to take them on at some point. Without these challenges, life would be easy, and one wouldn’t have any fun. A young boy that faced these many challenges is named Ponyboy. Ponyboy is from The Outsiders, a book where a gang of greasers is suppressed and looked down on by the higher classes.
