What better book and character to demonstrate this than Beowulf.Beowulf before the events leading up to his spotlight in his story had the dream job of any warrior In those times: Slaying monsters, winning races (except one), and gaining wealth and riches. Beowulf was living it up, he could boast like none other with long, powerful, but eloquent boasts.
Some reasons include Ralph has a goal or clear vision of being rescued. Or that Ralph really communicates with the boys, and he is confident and dedicated to being the leader. To begin with, Ralph is a better leader than Jack because he has a clear vision and goal to be rescued. A clear vision, according to the text titled “The Traits of Good and Bad Leaders” means “vivid picture of where to go, as well as a firm grasp on what success looks like and how to achieve it.” Ralph knows where he wants to go, and that is being rescued. In the book Ralph states “We want to be rescued; and of course we shall be rescued.” As Ralph said he wants him and the boys to be found.
Then Beowulf fighting with Grendel’s mother and won. The people all think Beowulf is a celebrity and should praise him. For example, “ So fame/ comes to the men who mean to win it/ And care about nothing else!” ( The Language of Literature 48, lines 490-492) . Even though , he died, people still maintain respect for him and worship his feelings. “ Rode their horses around the tower, telling their sorrow, telling stories of their dead king greatness, his glory, praising him
In Beowulf, Herot serves as the central hall for the Danes, and it symbolizes themes such as; good will always triumph over evil, and strong warriors will preserve through the toughest situations. When Hrothgar first became King of the Danes he instructed his men to “build a hall that would hold his mighty / Band and reach higher toward Heaven than anything / That had ever been known to the sons of men” (“Prologue” 68-70). Thusly after, it was built. “...Herot, the best / Of mead-halls” now stood strong, towering over the land as a symbol of Hrothgar’s powerful reputation (“Beowulf” 5-6). There, the Danes would hold feasts, tell stories and celebrate victories.

Sigmund was glorious warrior who fought many kinds of evil terrorizing the communities. Sigmund’s heroism brought him “Fame that would last beyond life and death” (885). After defeating a dragon alone, just as Beowulf did, Sigmund’s “name/And his treasures grew great” (898-899). However, Beowulf could also follow Hermod’s path. Hermod was once a great warrior just as Sigmund had been, but Hermod let his pride get
Later (although 400 bc is still pretty early), the characters were not always divine, but they were always the top of society. Because nobility was considered the next best thing to being a god (some even believed kings were directly appointed by God), many of the heroes were part of high social classes and had a high societal standing. One of these was Oedipus. He defeated the Sphinx and won the favor of the people, and in their eyes, the favor of the gods. During a plague, they pleaded with him to help them during the troubled time because “in their stories, the people testify/ how, with gods’ help, [he] gave [them] back [their] lives” (45).
In his day, he was the mightiest man on earth” (195-200). Just by reading this line, one can see that Beowulf was portrayed as one of the mightiest, most exquisite men in the world at his time. Whether it was his strength, courage, or willingness to please the people, something set him apart from the “normal” individuals. I think this illustration, created by Rubin and Garcia, really portrays what traits Beowulf possessed. In addition to being courageous, powerful, and possessing a willingness to protect the people, Beowulf was able to harness the monster inside of him in order to conquer his foes.
Beowulf is an epic hero, possessing many traits, including bravery, strength, courage, and a desire to achieve immortality through heroic actions, and so forth. Beowulf implies many of these qualities in the story. He also reflects both Pagan and Christian traditions. In a kingdom called Herot, many men lived happily ruled by the king Hrothgar. The only thing that would get in the way of their happiness and joy was the monster named Grendel.

In order to win in war, troops need a good captain who has the right battle plan, and in order to win in sports, players need a good coach who has the right game plan. A coach also needs to build a relationship with their players. It’s easier to learn from someone you trust. Coaches must successfully inaugurate restrictions and build trust by being clear about the learning and development purposes they set, showing good judgment, being patient and following through on any promises and agreements they make. A coach needs to be someone players can trust with issues on and off the field.
I remembered all the experiences I was put through, while watching them grow up while having me. I take the lessons, the time outs, and the talks all to my heart. I take how my parents lived their lives every day and try to make sure I use that same effect on my life. From this transition I gained independence, which was one of my values. I believe if you do not have personal goals and you rely on everyone else to help achieve your goals than you’re not really aspiring as a person.
