Many people have climbed simply,” Because it is there” (Mallory, 15). George Leigh Mallory made that comment after being asked by a newspaper reporter, why he wanted to climb.

Other times it’s going to be so easy fun and smoothe until… one hits that bump in the road again. We may think to ourselves the only option is to give up, to stop the climb and lose all complete motivation to continue.

I relate the mountain with life because, sometimes it 's not going to be easy and the only thing that I wanted to do was give up. This past year has been one of the hardest years because, its senior year and college is around the corner.

In “The Devils Thumb” by Jon Krakaeur, the perspective is from the view point of a solo climber.

Sometimes our dreams can be scary, but then I remind myself that even the greatest masterminds had moments of fear. You can move mountains when you reach above and beyond what's required. When I forget these things, I'm reassured by the fact that I have American Honors in my corner. I received a card in the mail the other day from the American Honors Program that said, "If your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough."

Krakauer wrote an article about the commercialization of the mountain and as well as its manpower. Commercialization had impacted the way people look at climbing mountains, matching Mount Everest and a few are positive and negative to people. Mount Everest’s respect has turned into a joke by the rapid change of commercialization. Mount Everest deserves respect, however, people lack the knowledge behind the climb.

In the article “Everest” , Beck Weathers said, “I had an innate awareness that if the calvery was going to come rescue me they would already have been there. If I didn’t stand up, I realized I was going to spend eternity on that spot.” That meant he knew when the mountain collapsed that somebody would have been there
Today, there still lots of influences, even though roadblocks hold me back and make me do bad decision’s. During school it might be boring to do work but at the end we all learn new things.

Even though, lots of people know what they did and might be honest with the choice they made and that will help them with avoiding the roadblocks of knowing they were lying to the parent.

I kept missing out on amazing opportunities, and I knew that I had to do something or else I would never get the chance to be successful. The key to my success started with my acceptance of my facial problems. Instead of being uncomfortable with them, I forced myself to accept that it was a problem I would have. After I did that, I had to physically work on my speaking skills, such as looking people in the eye or speaking louder. It took me weeks until I could talk confidently with other
