After the obstacles he has overcame Walt Disney once said “All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me… You may not realize when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.” Everyone has a time in there life where they need to get passed something that is in there way. When this time or times come everyone would find a way to get through it, whether it is asking for help or doing it on their own. When someone says the word adversity one would say you have to be hard working, determined, and strong would pop into their mind.
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. That’s what the characters have to do in these books. In the book, Peak by Roland Smith, Peak, the main character, wants to be the youngest person to ever reach the summit pole of Mount Everest. Throughout his climb he faces many obstacles, so he decides to take them so he can get past them to make it up the Mountain. In the book, Michael Vey: The Prisoner Of Cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans, Michael, the main character, was born with tourette's syndrome.
Though, obstacles are a constant part of our daily lives, overtime, we learn to cope with those obstacles. We discover how to jump every hurdle, or to simply walk around them. Granted, it seems that the biggest hurdles come when you try to achieve personal goals. Until you are an adult, there are rarely any decisions you make that are your own. There are usually constant factors that may influence you. It could be teachers, parents, friends, or society itself. Although endurance can be a helpful asset, it has its limits. Do you intend to go to work every day to a job you don't like only to look your boss in the eye as you apologize for killing time? Do you want to wake up next to person whom you may not love? To walk down the aisle, each step
“All the adversity I 've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me... You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.” Walt Disney . Who would have thought Walt Disney experienced obstacles? However, obstacles are a fact of life, no matter who you are. Likewise, if authors didn’t include obstacles or conflicts in their stories, readers would find their writings boring. Real life and fictional obstacles can make life challenging but interesting.
This paper outlines the person-in-environment’s concepts and the advantages of this approach. In the following part, I will also share the experiences that how the concept affected me when I was facing any life challenge and how it influences me in coping the problems.
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.
“Perseverance isn’t one long race; it is many short races one after the other.” - Walter Elliot. When someone is facing their idea of impossible, they must overcome many small bumps in the road and when they get over that small bump it can make them believe in themselves and make them stronger as a person. But perseverance can be well worth it in the end. Through determination, we can learn why perseverance is essential to making us stronger both mentally and emotionally, but we can’t just understand why but also how perseverance help in making us the strongest people we can be. However being persistent not only affects us as individuals but it also affects our communities and the society we live in. At the end of the day perseverance one
Moving to a new country can be difficult sometimes. Leaving all my relatives and friends back home was the saddest thing for me. My mother told me that we were moving to a new country. At first, I thought my mother was joking about it. but little did I know that she was telling the truth. It was hard for me to tell my friends that I was leaving and going to another country.We started packing all our belongings ready to go the airport. Before going to the airport, I went to my friends and said goodbye to all of them. I told them that I was moving to the U.S. They felt sad about the news I told them. but then they told me to have a safe journey and remember one thing when you go to the states don't ever forget us that's what they told me. I told them that I will never forget them because they were the friends who i grew up with. So I left feeling sad. Tears came down my cheeks I wiped them off and pretended to be normal.
How to overcome an obstacle you ask? An obstacle is a problem that you have to face with- overcome a problem you have to have the courage to face it. once in my past I had a problem, my problem was my grades at school. My grades was lower than the average I handle it by working hard and focusing on my subjects. After working hard on my grades, my hard work paid off. My grades went up and my grades was above average. After that I just kept working hard to conquer that obstacle. I found that facing a barrier in life will make you a stronger person mentally than any person you know because you have that courage to face that barrier in life. Other people, they just let fear in and don 't face their obstacle. They just fail in life and you should

My first and most important life lesson is to be thankful. I know that is such a simple one, and it is one that I have been taught my entire life. However, I have just recently learnt how important this lesson is. I am a nursing student, and during my third week of clinicals at the nursing home I was assigned a patient that is a vegetable. Seeing him, being able to talk to his family, and hear his story just broke my heart. I remember thinking how selfish of me; I get mad about making a B on a test or when something so simple doesn’t go my way. That day I learnt how thankful I should be that I can still move, talk, and enjoy life. I learnt not to focus on the little things that don’t go my way and to focus on the things that I do have and how thankful I should be for them.
Have you ever tried of loving someone so much but chose to let that person go? I think that’s the perfect question for me to say “Absolutely yes!” I used to love someone so much that is long distance to me and to the extent that he means the world to me. Exaggerated, right? I usually don’t want a long distance relationship but because of him I didn’t mind. That feeling when every time I pray to God, the first thing that I will say is “Lord, thank you for giving Him to me. I am so happy that I have him in my life.” I felt so happy and I thought that we will last forever. I used to think that love comes only to the right person, that what you feel for the person is so unique and you will never feel that feeling to another
