This is why his speeches were so powerful and why he’s famous. Using your emotions against your mind was one of his greatest tactics. He appeals to logic very well, however he has strings on your emotions like a puppeteer. Stupid people you can’t reason to with logic because they always will make something up that avoids the facts. For these reasons King was forced to appeal to their emotions.
Ambition is among the most creative and the strongest driven forces in the state of human psychology, and the reason how or why things get done. It is also one of the most dangerous drive -- the drive to get the last slice of pizza, or the entire box to yourself. If one has no pride, no ambition, no sense of self-importance, he/she is relatively immune to it. On the other hand, if a person has significant pride, a serious sense of self-importance, and is driving hard towards a set goal, he/she is then very vulnerable. Having too much pride can result failure in life, destroy egos because of overconfidence in what one thinks is right.
Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius once said, “A man’s worth is no greater than the worth of his ambitions” (Burton). All people want to be successful and be recognized for their hard work and achievement, whether it is in their career, in school, or in sports. In order to accomplish this success, people must have a drive and determination to do so; they must be ambitious. Every person has some sort of personal desire, something they want to attain, or a goal they yearn to reach. Many people find this term hard to grasp, often confusing it with other words, and only look at the positive connotations of the term and forget the negative aspects that it brings about.
Jason is naïve because he openly gives away his identity and is easily tricked which shows that he is lacking wisdom. “Jason revealed his identity, to Peleas's secret horror. Jason stated that he had come to recover for his father the throne of IoIcus, which rightfully belonged to him” (266).

He caused more trouble than he had intended, he is clearly naïve because he is full of himself and thinks that he'll have no trouble doing such a task.
In order to succeed your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure. ~Albert Einstein Indeed a very remarkable quote from a very remarkable man. I guess the real reason for why I started this essay like this is because it connects to my daily life so easily. I’m a person that learns from their mistakes, yes I have succeeded in life but all that success has come with hard work and also failure because a person isn’t really successful unless they have failed first, it may sound absurd but it’s the truth. I have many stories to tell and honestly 750 words are not enough to express me and my personality.
I want my future to be successful, but I know that cannot be achieved without hard work. As long as you are passionate, self determined, and motivated, the hard work it takes to be successful is nothing compared to the luxury of happiness. I truly believe success is drawn from passion and hard work, and my brother’s college career can prove that. Because of his success, I am more self determined to have a future just like he will: Full of passion, hard work and happiness. I am motivated to work hard on every paper, exam, and project because it will only prepare me more for the future I possess.

From being a little twinkling star, he became what I may call now as budding business tycoon. He has proven that his detour, even if it was the lesser popular choice among young professionals, was actually full of surprises and blessings. For when everyone thought you needed to add a title before or after your name to be able to succeed in the chosen career, he proved them wrong. When everyone thought being an employee is the ultimate goal after school, he then again proved them wrong. When everyone thought it was too big to dream of becoming your own boss, he for the nth time proved them wrong.
"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof" - Carl Edward Segan There are many expressions we constantly repeat like - "Half bread is better than none" - which may seem "true," but in reality is very dangerous to your success in life. If you believe in this saying, then you'll subconsciously slide into a rut and only settle for less in life - never learning to get in the driver's seat - and never cultivating the inner passion to follow-through on specific major projects. If you know of anyone who consciously or subconsciously uses this expression - with tact - let he/she know the dangers of its repeated usage to the human psyche. A second case study before we finally delve into the real meat of this article is the belief that "Knowledge is power." Now,
