I believe obstacles are one of the hardest things to accept as a human being. It can initially feel like a detour to an unknown road with many questions and anxieties about how we will overcome such adversities and how the success behind those battles create a base of foundation for each and every one of us.
An obstacle is largely defined as something that causes prevention towards progress. Obstacles come in all different challenges and types. As I think about my biggest obstacles in life not many came across my mind. Yes, there were times when things got tough but I always seemed to manage through them. I eventually came to the conclusion that I was my own obstacle in a way. The most disappointing time I have had in life began around the start of my sophomore year in high school. Around this time, my parents began to have fallouts within their relationship. The utter disrespect, betrayal, and overall mistreatment between two human beings where actions that shouldn't be tolerated in anyone's household. These were the same parents I had lived with
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.
Michael Phelps, a professional swimmer, once said, “There will be obstacles. There will be doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work, there are no limits,” (¨AZ Quotes¨). This quotes shows that throughout one’s journey they will eventually have to go against many obstacles, and have to find a a way to get through them.
As a student, I have faced so many incoming obstacles in my life, that it is natural for myself. One of the bigger challenges that I have recently faced was almost getting cut by the Junior Varsity Tennis Team. This happened to me last year and I can remember it like it was yesterday. I am pretty sure I had other significant challenges that I have faced before, but this one tested my ability to work hard and keep myself motivated.
Have you ever thought you could not do something, but worked at and was able to do it because almost or everyone has. This is going to be a paper about how going to pursuit what you want or have to work for it because it doesn 't just come and sit your lap. Some other reasons everyone needs to work for something they want is because if might get you out of a hole that you are in right now or used to be in no matter if it’s money, someone dieing, something with family problems no matter what it is you need to work hard. Obstacles are part of life and are meant to be overcame; you can not just walk around, over, under them you have to face them. The obstacle I had to overcome is not starting in football when I was nine, people were like your nine
Mariah Sanabria “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.” Booker T. Washington Life can often be full of obstacles. However, that does not mean that overcoming them and being successful is not possible. Obstacles in life are there as challenges. Obstacles that people face will show who they really are.
Problems, some are dealt with easier than others, but everyone has them. How can overcoming all of these complications change our lives? Should we just ignore the ones we do not want to solve, or do we need to solve all of them? Some problems can seem so infuriating and such an inconvenience to have at a specific time in your life, but those problems can also precisely be the reason your life is as easy or as difficult as it is. I have come across multiple impediments in my almost 16 years of living, and as much as I would like to blame God for them, or grow super upset and irritated that I ended up being the one stuck with these issues, they all help me develop as a person in one way or another.
Coming into contact with challenges and struggles can seem awful and unwanted at first. But as we get around those struggles and challenges we can look back and be grateful we went through them. Sometimes we can face something so scary it feels as though we will never get through that stage but when we do that person will be so much stronger because they had to go face to face with what scared them. Challenges are bumps in an individual 's road to success, some may appear bigger than others but perseverance can and will help a person to get over those bumps. The more challenges someone gets past helps them get closer to their goals in life.
Adversity can bring out the positive and negative sides in a person. In “The Proof of Worth,” Edgar Albert Guest demonstrates how challenges in life can help someone understand what he or she is capable of during a hardship. Similarly, “The Importance of Adversity in Growth and Development” written by Patrick Kohan exemplifies how children will never learn how to conquer an obstacle if they are always given assistance. Additionally, Laura Hillenbrand’s novel, Unbroken, indicates that experiencing problems can affect the way a person’s body reacts and thinks about a difficult moment. Ultimately, the authors highlight that obstacles can be a complex or helpful task, as well as assist people in the future when they need to know their true
We must stop trying to find a way that circumvents obstacles. Every difficulty we successfully confront serves to strengthen the ability to conquer future obstacles. Personally, I have been fortunate enough to not face as many conflicts as others at my age tend to face. However, I do still have obstacles that come in my way, determination, resilience, and persistence enable me to push past adversities and prevail. I believe all problematic times in life helps us enjoy when things are going smoothly.
The exercise we began class with truly opened my eyes to how much I focus on race in both a positive and negative way. I characterize my self as black and Dominican, both groups that have been oppressed by the majority, but by doing so I feel great pride and face adversity. Associating one trait with both the extremes of most problem and one with which I encounter a lot of problems exists as strange. I believe the pride comes from overcoming the adversity and achieving the unthinkable against all odds. Here at UVA, I exist in two of the smallest ethnic groups on grounds. I am proud to be among the majority, but I often feel isolated. No one ever approaches me or makes an effort to meet me unless I take the imitative, not to say they respond
Obstacles can be challenging, and difficult, but people can overcome them by never giving up, always trying their best, and surrounding themselves with families and friends. Two stories that I have read that show adversity are “A Work in Progress” by Aimee Mullins which is about a little girl losing her leg. The other story I read is “So Far From the Bamboo Grove” by Yoko Kawashima Watkins about a little girl that has to leave her home because of war and has very big obstacles to overcome. Aimee Mullins and the Kawashimas both face obstacles that include losing family members, walking very far in intense weather, and people doubting you and trying to stop you. In the end they all make it through the the challenges mentally and physically.
Aim for something like, exploring and learning new ways to achieve the target. Don’t stride, take small steps. This will not only help you minimize the failure possibilities, but it will also boost your morale. 2. Think before you leap
