Peter Miceli Mr. Simakowicz English 101-03 October 20, 2014 Success is a Journey, not a Destination The most important aspect in life is the feeling of happiness. There is not elevator that leads to success, you must take the stairs. Whether or not you are popular, confident, and wealthy in life, you are not necessarily successful. Every day when you turn on the television, the media wants the world to believe that having lots of money, living in a mansion like house, and owning the most advanced cars is the key to happiness. One may continue to believe that popularity makes you successful, but there comes a time in there life when they realize that nobody is there for you when you need them most.
The character, Jeevan Chaudhary and I define happiness in exceedingly similar ways because we prioritize similar things in our lives. Jeevan finds happiness with his family. Family can be the most important people in one’s life. After Jeevan’s time in Allan Gardens, he decides that “he wanted very much to tell Frank about the evening…” (16). His first instinct after having such a whirlwind of a night is to go to his brother and tell him about it; not to go home to his girlfriend, but to see his brother, his family.
It was time to understand those words he said to me. My grandfather’s death made me realize how much of an impact someone you love can have on you. He changed me into someone who desire to help others. I decided that I wanted to be a cardiologist. The years that flew by after my grandpa’s death, has made my resolution of becoming a cardiologist stronger and stronger each day.
My father died fighting laryngeal cancer when I was ten years old. Despite the traumatizing experience of my father’s illness and his subsequent death, I have always seen my mother as a symbol of courage. She always used to say, “no matter how difficult the situation may seem, never give up. Keep moving and doors will open for you”. I was compelled to join a nursing school due to financial restraints, but my dream of becoming a doctor always lived in my heart.
The activities that I was involved in before helped me to become a better student. Undoubtedly, the most influential people in my life have been my parents. All my accomplishments and successes are due to their guidance and support. My mother is not working and my father is the soul bread of my family. However my father is having some financial problems.
He believed in making a movie or animation based on getting it perfect and incorporating universal ideas that could be felt by everyone. While this did cause some financial stresses at certain junctures with the business, at several points when his films weren’t initially successful the company would face debt, this style ultimately paid off gloriously. Others would follow his style, realizing taking time to invest in the product (movie) was worth the time when it came to movie popularity, audience attendance, and especially
My childhood was filled with hurdles that I had to overcome, but in the end, these barriers only made me stronger and more determined to accomplish my dreams. My parents, sisters, and brother served as my companions as I spent the early months of my life living on the floor of the family van (Douglas and Burford 16). My parents were constantly looking for jobs in hopes of providing a better life for their children (Douglas and Burford 18). My mother and father, struggling to raise five young children on their own, were presented with a new roadblock just before my first birthday (Douglas and Burford 19). I was diagnosed with a life-threatening disease called Branched Chain Ketoaciduria (Douglas and Burford 19).
One of my future goals and the most important one is to become a doctor. It is my life dream, and the only thing I am seeking for. Doctor is someone capable to save and help others life in ways that are not possible in other careers. Being a doctor for me is not just like any job, it is achieving a dream I have since I was 6 years old. One of the main reasons I picked this major is my family; my family members are almost all doctors, and my dad too.
I was the one who was always ready to help. My mom’s pregnancy was a kind of unique process that was amazing for my whole family. I will always remember my first visit in the hospital and the meeting with this little miracle. Unfortunately he had to spend some time in the obstetric department because his life was endangered. I was a daily visitor in the hospital in these days.
