3. Fear of defeats: Those who follow their dreams suffer far more than others because when they fail continuously, they can’t make the excuses such as ‘I didn’t want it anyway’. They know that they want to actualize their dreams and their path will not be easier than any other path they could follow. The warriors of light, as Paulo calls them, are prepared to be patient and let the Soul of the World conspire in their favor. 4.
There are activities for everyone out there, no matter who you are to make you happy; you just have to get out and find them. Lastly, I believe the last key to happiness if to look at everything in the most possible way. If you look at everything negative then you will never be truly happy and you won’t have very many people who wants to be around a Debby Downer.

As evidence he mentions, "Worship power, you will end up feeling weak and afraid, and you will need ever more power over others to numb you to your own fear" (Wallace, 8). He mentions that in order to keep fighting you will need power and if that power runs out then even if needed take other people's powers and keep fighting until you numb your own fear. Once the mind starts controlling you, you won't be able to do anything because no matter how hard you try you won't be able to get rid of the judgements or the comments from your head. Those judgements and comments start making room in your mind, you will become powerless, and you won't be able to fight any more in fact it will make you so weak that it will start becoming a habit. When thinking back to how the mind starts controlling you I think back to my situation and how I immediately started judging that person without even thinking of what they are going through.
When thinking about bystanders and upstanders and talking about the subject in many situations, people always tell you that they would be upstanders no matter what but the fact of the matter is that when you are in the situation no matter who you are many would chose to stay quiet. Why is this? Aren’t we supposed to be good people? The matter is that many don't intervene due to the consequences it can lead to their families, their cultural background leading to what they were taught and the risk they are putting upon themselves. Many people chose to be bystanders in risky situations due to the fact that it leads to their family suffering the consequences.
Charles Mungoshi’s story “The Setting Sun And The Rolling World” uses symbolism to develop several themes in the story. In particular, Mungoshi uses the plane as a symbol to further establish the themes of uncertainty, change, and differences in opinion. The plane is a modern machine that is always on the move, going from one place to the next, as the way a boy dreams. He wants to leave his traditions in the hopes of creating a new future for himself separate from his father. Although the father views this as a mistake when he notices the plane disappearing “quickly over the southern rim of the sky,” we sense Musoni’s feeling of helplessness and anger towards his son.
This survival mode that Pi is forced into causes him to lose his innocence, behaving in ways he never thought he could, but it helps him survive. Our first sense will always be fighting to survive, we are destined to challenge ourselves into adversities. The adversities help to form the character, but much more important, it shows if we can step up to the challenges life presents. From the outside, we can never know what we might do in harrowing circumstances, but we can imagine, respect, even honor the complex experiences and desperate choices of those who have walked through that dark
Response Sometimes, no matter how much we try to avoid the danger, we inevitably end up having to face it and to respond to it. Perhaps you saw your potential attacker or attackers and attempted to avoid them moving into a more secure location, yet they followed you there and cornered you. Perhaps you did not see them due to being distracted, and you suddenly find yourself face to face with them. This is a very frightening experience for most of us, and when we are afraid, our bodies react by dumping loads of adrenaline into our bloodstream. Our heart beats faster as it pumps more blood into our muscles preparing us for “fight or flight”.
Soon it was time to board. I was finally trying to conquer my fear, but it did not seem to work. As I sat back in the uncomfortable plane seat, my hands became sweaty and I started to freak out. I knew there was no turning back; soon I was going to be thousands of feet in the air. As I closed my eyes, I tried to picture a happy place, but all I could imagine was a plane crash.
