I failed to be a starter, and that was clear to me. It was everything I worked for, all the work felt like it was for nothing. Instead of giving up, I decided to use this to fuel me into becoming an even better player. It helped me with being better with my attitude, work ethic, habits, and self-motivation. I couldn’t let this make me sad, I had to stay mentally tough, keep a positive attitude, if I wanted to succeed.
Meaning simply that just because of an event, good or bad, in your life occurs you can’t just change who you are. Sure you can try I did, but my worldview kept bringing me back. You can try to change who you are but you can't change your past experiences and emotions. So therefore my worldview changes and I rightfully think it should. My worldview is based off of strong morals and beliefs, but also an understanding of difference.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other's opinions drown out of your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow you're heart and intuition,” (Steve Jobs). You should do the right thing and never give up.
King used these allusions as precursors to the purpose of his speech, to gain equality using peaceful protests. The allusions all referred to equality and the freedom of people similar to the excerpt from the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created
He lived his life in truth, and spoke to everyone with truth and wisdom, he highlighted self knowledge in everything he did. Without Gandhi India wouldn’t have it’s independence. Gandhi and Malcolm X were both assassinated, if either had lived a full life they would have many more accomplishments. Their approaches are different but they had both fought for equal rights, one for African Americans, and the other for the world. They knew how to address a crowd and get the results they wanted even without being aware of how they affected the public.
Mohandas Gandhi was a “key figure in the Indian struggle for independence.” He worked to use nonviolent ways to fight for equality and change in India. Gandhi was able to unite many groups and “inspired the common people of India to work for change.” In addition, Gandhi advocated using a more traditional approach (Wadley 202). Although Mohandas Gandhi 's satyagraha campaign caused violence, his advocacy for those who were discriminated against in Indian society led to the initial unification of India to gain independence from Great Britain. Gandhi’s attempt to peacefully fight for independence still left a considerable amount of violence during protests. Gandhi advocated for oppressed or mistreated groups, such as untouchables, women, and those
My next one is to always try your best at something, even if you aren’t good at it at first. My next belief is that you should help others when necessary, because some people need extra help, but don’t help them TOO much. My last belief is that you should always be true to yourself because if you let others’ opinions consume your opinion, then you will never have
These events in my life are building stones towards an unknown future that I eagerly await to encounter. “Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful”, this is the mantra I live by, and nobody can tell me that I cant make it. They can judge me with my incapabilities, but I will never be late to prove them wrong. Sometimes the things you cant change end up changing you. With every pain I receive, my moral fibre unravels a
I choose this essay because, I feel that no one is mentally prepare of what can happen next. We just have to go with the flow. Take a risk as many say. Life isn’t always joyful, we experience good and bad times. We should always value life every minute.
“Nothing should be easily given. It has no value that way.”( Not specified). This quote teaches us that we should try our best and work hard to achieve the highest degree of satisfaction. By taking for granted or being given things that are valuable easily we as humans would not take care of it. But if we work hard for it we would cherish what we have accomplished.
My Declaration of Independence When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary to completely abolish my doubt. I will not let the pressure consumed by doubt suppress me from living my life.Doubt has already altered my life so much but I will not give in anymore. I hold these truths to be self-evident that as a person my life should not be delayed because the doubt adapted by me and the people around me.I should have the opportunity to try something without people around me doubting me and even my own mind doubting me. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world... Doubt causes me to second guess myself It holds me back from living my life It causes me to pass up great opportunities As a person it makes me
My Thoughts: I found this quote to be extremely important and felt it connected back to Anaïs Nin’s section. It’s all about connecting with yourself within and knowing who you are. You have to be honest with yourself and know exactly who you are before you can live a good life. Meyers points out that its important to know who you truly are just based on personal reasons and for important cases like “moral and political autonomy”. What I took away from this quote was don’t get caught up in someone else’s group and remain silent but to tap into your true being and flourish.
There is not one person in this world that doesn’t have their obstacles and disadvantages. It is what you do with them that helps you grow as an individual. I believe that obstacles can be turned into something good because they are all just challenges to be overcame. We are used to hearing that we must be strong and never have obstructions, yet I’ve come to surmise that it is in fact all the hardships you go through that make you stronger. Taking the easy way out things, giving up, or assuming everything in life will be given to you in hand is erroneous.
