In our life, there are periods of challenges that we must face, but the real challenge is how we grow and learn from overcoming them. Being naive children, we believed that life was simplistic and effortless. Well, we were wrong, we can only yearn for life to be easy. Growing up, we continue to face countless hurdles that only get bigger and bigger. My life, in particular, has been filled with numerous up and downs. It felt like I was in an endless roller coaster going up and down. Some believe that life is filled with obstacles and experiences that will help us pave the path to our own successes. But is that really accurate? There are some points in life when I’ve felt that I would never conquer a problem. From trying to learn to walk, to making big decisions that would affect the outcome of life. There are always complications and doubts that block our path. What job am I to choose? What university do I apply for? These thoughts will soon turn into a bitter reality. A reality that we will have to face. I would do anything to go back in time when I thought learning division was complicated as untying a series of knots. Sadly, this is the harsh reality, but even in this reality, we see even ourselves getting through a barrier. Life isn’t a game where you only have one try. Even when we stumble a thousand times, we can still manage to get back up, and it’s that thing about life that leaves me in awe. Life is a series of failures and lessons. Sometimes, even failures are
Life will always have its curve balls and obstacles in the way of the road ahead of you, but what develops an individual is how they push through and become a greater as a result of some sort of suffering. Let’s just say that you happen to suffer a death in the immediate family, now you can approach it many different ways. There will be that period of grief and sorrow, but you cannot be dwelling in those unhappy feelings forever; That will result in you being unhappy and mentally weakened. In times like this, these adverse circumstances can make you take a different outlook on life
Failure Failure has always been a part of my life. As a child, I fell short of minor goals such as riding a bicycle, doing a pull-up, or beating a difficult level on Super Mario Bros. Although these set backs were small, I constantly kepy trying untill I could accomplish the task at hand. In fact, I would say one of my most euphoric moments in my child hood was when I learned how to ride a bike. As I got older, failure got tougher.
When times get tough and adversity is thrown at you like a curveball all you can do is stay positive and know to never give up. Unfortunately I have had to deal with a couple scenarios where I have been faced with adversity. I have had to overcome my parents being divorced, and a family member who has overcame a drug addiction. That was one of the hardest things I was ever faced with going through middle school, but knowing that there will always be a tomorrow and to not give up on someone has had a positive impact in the end. It has brought my family closer than we have ever been.
As people go through obstacles they learn from them and sometimes move past them. The obstacles are always their to remember. As you learn more and more about a person then you get the real idea of their obstacles. You never know how they were in that moment until you really stepped in their shoes. People are faced with obstacles and overcome them everyday even the people who you think have such great lives go through them just as much.
Everyone has to deal with adversity. Everyone's existence contains challenges, disappointments, frustration, and failed expectations. Everyone experiences setbacks. But, none of us, not even those who have what they want, or are the most successful, or experience daily happiness, find life 100 percent easy.
Obstacles can be hard to overcome. My mother, friend and older cousin went through some obstacles that was hard for them to overcome but they overcame them the best way they could. Everyone goes through obstacles in life. My mom for example went through a hard obstacle of whether she should go to school or not. She remained in school for about four more months but she started lacking on her work, so she later decided to stop going to school, she was about 15 years old when she made the decision to stop going to school.
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.
“Another source of greatness is difficulty. When any work seems to have required immense force and labour to effect it, the idea is grand” -Edmund Burke Obstacles are challenges that make a better version of ourselves, doors that we need to open to achieve greatness and success. These obstacles can range from your school work to the death of a loved one. Everyone faces obstacles and challenges, some overcome them and some get overcome by the obstacles.
In everyone’s everyday life, we all encounter obstacles. Big and small, important and not so important, we must face these obstacles as they are presented to us. If we push these obstacles out of the way and continue to ignore them, it will eventually come back to bite us. However, if you push through and be persistent it can lead to something even better in the long run. A time when I had an obstacle that I had to overcome was my freshmen year of soccer.
“Never confuse a single failure with a final defeat”(Fitzgerald). As I recall all the failures of my short life; I realize that everyone of them has changed who I am, even if the change is so small I cannot see it immediately. We are told as children to get up, shake it off, and move on when a failure puts us on the ground. When we did this it slowly changed the way we thought and our character, the failures of life and what we learn from them are detrimental to our development in our future endeavors.
On the contrary, I know that the climb may be tough but the view is great. Throughout all the struggle I know that confidence is key, obtaining is not easy. I now accomplish more by learning from the mistakes I've made in the past. Although I regret them, I enjoy the struggling efforts I do to keep up because the accomplished feeling is
Last year, I struggled in many different areas of life. During that difficult time, I turned to my uncle for advice. The conversation eventually shifted from the topic of success, to my fear of failure. He told me to look at my family history and noted that their trend of success is in my nature. The potential to succeed, because of those who came before me, along with my own struggle, helped mold me into who I am today.
Overcoming obstacles is an important part of any task, insignificant, or earth shattering, consider the example of Terry Fox. This young man traveled across Canada even though he faced not only cancer but the loss of his leg. Through his perseverance and determination he managed to defy the odds and achieve his dream. This young man shows the crucial nature of overcoming obstacles by demonstrating the sense of achievement, accomplishment of goals, and the work ethic that coincides with said achievement and accomplishment. When one finally manages to turn something in on a deadline after hours of hard labor, or completing a difficult crossword puzzle after a morning cup of coffee they feel fulfilled.
With life it comes with many obstacles that you have to face. One person that I look up to that went through a lot of obstacles in her life if my mother. As a daughter, seeing my mother struggle on dealing with many things has changed my perspective in life. She was 18 years old pregnant when she had me, and dropped out of school.
Obstacles in life is just like the game of Jenga. You take out a piece successfully and put it on top. But never forget that as we finish each turn, it only gets harder and harder to accomplish. One wrong move and it would cost you everything that you haveworked so hard achieve for. People like who I was, so focused and determined on succeeding, forgetting the fact that success also comes with failure.
