He has set standards for all people that wish to be successful and do not want to be “average”. Carnegie has opened my eyes to many different ideas and ways to become the best person that I can. Success is now a goal of mine and I am driven to create a life that I do not need a vacation from. Carnegie said it best when he made this statement, “ People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.” When I think about this quote it reminds me of another extremely successful man, Arnold Schwarzenegger. He said, “ The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else.
In addition to that his innovative ideals has allowed us to achieve major milestones in picking and other areas of the operation. So with all that I said. I need to understand why we are refusing to increase Jose’s pay? Even though it was us
While attending college, Lupica majored in English and would enjoy working the night shift at the Boston Globe. He also wrote columns for two different school newspapers and a new paper, the Boston Phoenix. Then shortly after his junior year, Lupica denied a job offer for reporting on the New England Patriots from the Globe. Years later when asked why he had denied the job offer, Lupica said “…I’d have to travel with the team, so I told them that as flattered as I was, senior year in college only comes around once.” (Rattiner,
The author shows that when one is of high status, like Zaroff was, one often loses sight of what’s right and what’s wrong because one thinks of oneself as higher or more valuable than those who aren’t of high status. Zaroff clearly shows this when he says, “Life is for the strong, to be lived by the strong, and, if needs be, taken by the strong. The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure.” Because Zaroff sees himself as strong, he has no problem killing those that he considers weak. Connell also shows that humans can never be truly satisfied with what they have. Zaroff says, “Hunting was beginning to bore me!
“[...] the study and desire of the wisest men since the creation of the world was now within my grasp” (34). He was aware that there was still a lot of work necessary, but not once he doubted that he would achieve it in the end. “[…] but I doubted not that I should ultimately succeed.” (35) It is again a sign of his narcissistic nature which does not permit him to question his ability in the least. Hence, when deciding whether to animate a human being like himself or a simpler animal, he himself admits that his imagination, while only being able to think of the eventual success, would not allow him to settle with the easier task. “I doubted at first whether I should attempt the creation of a being like myself or one of simpler organization; but my imagination was too much exalted by my first success to permit me to doubt of my ability to give life to an animal as complex and wonderful as man.” (35) Victor 's self-absorbed nature leaves him no other choice as to always strive for the most demanding challenge, as he is confident he will not fail.
I feel like he is doing this pretense to show that he is a very saintly person, who speaks only greatness. Throughout part two in the book, I’ve noticed that he always makes himself seem he is better than others. He makes others feel very low. He butters everyone up, and proves that he is the one sensible soul who determines what type of talent they have. I disagree with this quote as it is contradicting with my personal beliefs.
An anti-hero is a main character that does not possess the traditional heroic qualities and is instead admired for what is generally considered a weakness by society. They can also be someone who fights for the side of good but has a tragic flaw, or uses questionable means. On the back cover of Rule of the Bone by Russell Banks, there is a quote describing Chappie as a “young modern anti-hero”. The question that this arises is whether or not he should be considered an anti-hero. While Chappie is a character that can be admired despite his shortcomings, he doesn't fight for or sacrifice himself for any sort of ideal or side.
Between films, television, novels, and the Internet, there are many different types of popular culture in which society is immerged. One might argue that studying pop culture is shallow and worthless, but this is debatable because most of what we do is shaped by pop culture in some way. Studying pop culture may allow us to understand trends in culture that can aid in other society-based careers, as well as study societal and power constructs with greater accuracy. As technology and media develops further and further, pop culture should be studied in academia, as it is a relevant way to examine the moral constructs of the society and understand trends in culture. In the future, if pop culture is included in academia with the same importance as other subjects, future graduates may be more in tune with society than ever
My life now because of FCCLA is better than my life before FCCLA. FCCLA has shaped me into a better well rounded individual. I am better leader, FCCLA has given me the tools, power, and knowledge to be the best leader I can be inside and outside of the classroom, and also when no one’s watching. I am better daughter because of FCCLA, before I used to drink, smoke, party, but because of FCCLA, I’ve learned that the decisions I make now will affect my future may it be today, a week from today, or 4 years from today. I also used to disrespect my family, but now I respect my parents, and their wishes.
― Lao Tzu Any fool can rule others, but it takes courage and mental power to rule your own heart. Have you ever considered about the truth, why history never remembers those who ruled others, even while they were very strong and had an immense impact on mankind, in the same way, while you think of happiness why you run for those souls who ruled themselves instead of ruling others? “Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. ― Lao Tzu Life is never complex; it is as simple as it should be nonetheless it is always us who made unnecessary changes to it for our so-called greater benefits, but generally which grow to be our greatest regrets later.
I think Amir and Hassan both have power, although they have gotten to their power differently. Hassan got into his power by just being a respectable and trust whereas Amir got his power the less respectably way, because he was just born into it. Even though Hassan had more plight to get to where he was it would be worth it after the arduous journey, where If Amir used his power in a way that was respectable and helped others he would have way more power. Due to the way he used his power I no longer feel any animosity for Amir. I do not like how morose Amir has been throughout most of the book.
The dictionary definition of “to lead” is “to be in charge or command of”. If you don’t have anyone to be in charge of, you wouldn’t be considered a leader. That’s why there are more followers than leaders. You need all of those followers, in order to even have a leader. As seen in Lord of the Flies, Ralph blew the conch and was elected the leader by all of the boys, of whom he would then be in charge of.
