My lowest health sub-scale was stress-management which surprised me because I felt before-hand that I managed my stress very well. I went back and looked at some of the questions provided for that subscale and I interpreted it as stress as a whole and not just one specific stressor like college. I believe in my health I’m doing well in emotional,
Past this point, Tayo starts improving immensely, having his mind, body, and soul be reborn into a new state of existence. Just like how ceremonies stopped working in a continuously changing society, his psychological traits could not live in a ever expanding world. The only way for Tayo to survive was to have his culture be transformed to effectively influence him. In each book, Marji and Tayo both experience the development of psychological traits due to their cultural influences. The difference between these two characters is the fashion in which they developed these traits.
In the novel Outliers: The Story of Success, Malcolm Gladwell gave a well put together read that gives us much to think about when trying to define success and what factors are important in shaping whether a person becomes successful or not. Prior to reading Gladwell’s Outliers my views probably were like most that success usually comes from one’s hard work and genius and that we all have an equal chance for success, but after reading Gladwell’s theories and explanations on how many outside factors can influence success, I now have some different conclusions about intelligence and how outside factors such as socioeconomic background and the way we are raised are also important influences of who and what we become and not just simply how high ones IQ or intelligence is measured. Malcolm Gladwell’s The Outliers chapter three and four, The Trouble with Genius Part 2, explains how where we come from and how we are raised influence our success and even those with similar above average IQ’s may not have the same opportunity for success because of these factors. Even though a high IQ may set us apart as an outlier, because of our economic background we may not have the same opportunities as someone with the same IQ.
Numerous people throughout history have failed or dropped out and have came out on top. These individuals learned more lessons failing than they did succeeding. Which is the reason Zinsser ensures people “failure isn’t fatal” (Zinsser 602). Informing readers failure isn’t automatically bad and succeeding isn’t immediately good (Zinsser 603). Still believing succeeding is better than failing but tells how it is okay to fail.
Well, college is one of the top places that comes to my mind at least. College is where many can enhance various intellectual capabilities and help many a person achieve a higher standard of cognitive thinking, and I sincerely hope that I am one of them. If one was to look into my cerebral cortex’s process of critical thinking, he or she might find a few areas lacking that I direly need and want to improve. The first place the person might say I need improvement on is the ability to look at a viewpoint that is not necessarily my own to try to understand it from all directions. Most times, when someone vehemently disagrees with my opinion, I easily write the person off and just take my view as the better interpretation, but yet the saying, two heads are better than one, comes into play.
Although there are some racial issues going around the United States. We have all changed the society and it is fine with the changes it has now. Everyone is doing much better than the old times with racial division. Some people might be against society now but some might not be right now. We have pros and cons, It will take a debate.
A person can go through their life doing the same thing and may even do it wrong. However a courageous person not only realizes their wrongdoings or that they could be doing something better, but they need to take action to improve a situation or even their own lives or the lives of those around them. I can come to remember multiple times in my life in which I can say that I learned an important lesson from happen to be those from my younger years where I had been more ignorant to the world around me. During the deplorable years in the 8th grade, I suddenly had an epiphany. As I walked down the halls an unpleasing feeling sat deep in the pit of my stomach.
Leadership defined is a person who takes initiative to aid others during their every day activities. They makes sacrifices of their time and personal interests for others.

I also help classmates with their English work.
The first mindset is the fixed mindset which is when one believes that “your qualities are carved in stone” or in other words people will believe that their intelligence and personality are fixed traits. The second mindset is the growth mindset which is when “everyone can change and grow through applications and experience.” basically, they can improve with some motivation or education and they push themselves to become better. Dweck towards the end of the article gives a scenario between 2 types of people with one having a fixed mindset and the other having a growth mind set who are getting a disappointing grade. The people with the fixed mindset would label themselves and complain, as for the other people with growth mindset would look to improve and work harder the next time around.
Also, I have come to realize the importance of time management which has helped a lot growing as a student. Everyone in this world has the same duration of a day which is 24 hours but how it is utilized to yield the best result of our given time is up to each person. Time management has played a key role for me in becoming the focused student I am today because I have carefully allocated the time for me to study, sleep, eat, play and work without one being a hindrance to the other in my schedule. All these have made me realize is that the challenge I faced was somewhat important but how I was able to tackle the problem which made me a better

When having strong morals, such as Carnegie did, they push us further than we thought we could go. In the autobiography Carnegie speaks about where he started working and how he continued to move up, take chances, fail, succeed, and fail again. I can now see how if something didn’t work for me, I would not always continue to try it until I could do it. As I grew up I observed myself beginning to change, and if I was not the best at it I would work harder at it. Looking at life now, I can still do better and I can tell that I have not done the best I can at all things in my

I cannot imagine how I had gotten my feet to move, but I had found myself enthusiastically swinging my body around the room when hearing the instructor count: one, two,three and four repeatedly as each muscle throughout my body, swung around, to each beat being counted. I had waited for these exciting moments, where having fun and being myself suited each moment dancing.
