As cliché as it is, “get back on the horse that bucked you” is a crucial piece of advice to remember when struggling to surmount obstacles. These obstacles are personal barricades that we set up unconsciously based upon our fears. It may be easy to identify what we are afraid of and how to overcome it, but challenging our fears proves to be more difficult. Sometimes, we don’t even address these problems because we are subconsciously trying to avoid them such as in the beginning of The Georges and the Jewels by Jane Smiley. The main character unknowingly tricks herself into thinking that just because she continues to get thrown from her horse, it will always hurt.

The things we think would surely affect and reflect on our actions and emotions because all first start and happen in our minds. If we will not be able to control things in our minds, it will take effect in our lives; may be good or bad. Life is fragile so be positive that you may end peacefully and happily. Lastly, using the philosophy of realism, we could relate it to Katagiri’s life and even us. Sometimes, what we think of ourselves is not true.
The reader can see an attraction flourishing within Mr. Darcy with each encounter the two characters have, while Elizabeth is positively unaware of such feelings. The reader is also able to observe the genuine admiration that Mr. Darcy holds for Elizabeth, when he “with grave propriety requested to be allowed the honour of her hand” (pg. 24). It is evident that Mr. Darcy’s request was genuine and that he honestly wanted to be acquainted with her and to dance with her. While Elizabeth on the other hand was still in denial of his feelings and presumed that he

Raskolnikov is often wrapped up in his thoughts to a point where he ends up wandering aimlessly, blocking out his surroundings, and getting lost in real life which in turn makes him forget what he was first so caught up in. Even when he 's filled with determination, he would sometimes still lose his direction, this for me correlates to Strakhov 's quote about "life in theory versus life in practice." Life in theory can seem one way, but in practice end up completely different. Strakhov states that both struggle within a man 's heart and this internal struggle that Dostoevsky makes transparent for the reader, does depict a "nihilist suffering in a deeply human way" (485). It 's interesting how this struggle manifest itself in Raskolnikov 's.

If something is broken, it must be fixed in order to fulfill its purpose. Immigration policy is broken and must be
In turn, it is important to address turnover through a systematic problem solving process. It is vitally important to use facts, not anecdotal evidence to identify root problems, because as demonstrated, each stage of the problem solving process builds on the previous stage. If, for example, the problem is incorrectly identified, the solutions will be suboptimal and could even create new problems. Further, the action plan will yield limited (if any) success. The key to correctly identifying the root cause of turnover is to determine what drives turnover and retention.
