Her point is that talents will not improve unless used in situations that, although may be difficult, will improve and open up more opportunities. Despite this letter is written to her son, the point she tries to prove to her son is a philosophy that should be lived by in life. As she says in the letter, “the habits of a vigorous mind are formed in contending with difficulties.” The struggles and toils everyone experiences in life are part of the never ending learning process that is required in life. Even though these difficulties may be a pain, your own character and talents will never improve if the these struggles did not
I choose this essay because, I feel that no one is mentally prepare of what can happen next. We just have to go with the flow. Take a risk as many say. Life isn’t always joyful, we experience good and bad times. We should always value life every minute.
Crawling out of these crevasses, overcoming life’s challenges, is something each of us must face” (249). Life is not something that we find, but something we create through our experiences, comprising of failures and successes. If we continue to remain silent and content with failures, we are not only limiting ourselves, but our nation’s ability to move forward. No matter the struggle, it is vital that we push ourselves and never stop until
But it taught me the lesson that life in unpredictable, you never can know what is going to happen next. Life could change in a blink of eye. When you sit down and think about this, it makes you want to be prepared the most you can for life. The cruel actuality of the world is you never what obstacles you are going to face, despite how prepared you think you are. Knowing this, I want to prepare myself for the world the best I can.
They are trying to express that everyone knows and it is easy to give up something that they have been working on. But they had also explained that, “Then again I couldn’t have ’cause. I’ve traveled all this way for something.” This sentence is to emphasize that you will never be success if you do not have a positive attitude towards a task. You should try your very best to finish it because you may have underestimated your ability when you started to get frustrated and have the idea to give up. How do you know that you will not be successful if you do not even
1.) As Michael Jordan stated in his last paragraph “who become I am ready to accept failure. Everyone may fail. But I don’t want to say that I don’t try.” From my personal experiences, you will never know if you will fail or not if you don’t push yourself to try and find out.

These events in my life are building stones towards an unknown future that I eagerly await to encounter. “Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful”, this is the mantra I live by, and nobody can tell me that I cant make it. They can judge me with my incapabilities, but I will never be late to prove them wrong. Sometimes the things you cant change end up changing you. With every pain I receive, my moral fibre unravels a
Since life isn’t like a videogame where you can just start over, I have to suffer the consequences to my actions, and learn from my past to change my future for the better. That's why to this day, I always tell people, show up and give everything you have because you never know when your last moment will be and you don't want to regret anything you've done. Hence live by the motto, seize the
It all depends on whether you are willing to accept the change or if you want to continue living the same life. We should never take our life for granted no matter what the situation may be. If some people consider change, I hope they make a good change and not a bad one. People change every day and we will just have to accept it unless we feel as if it will cause harm to an individual’s
