One saying I learned that comes to mind, in regard to respecting rank structure, “if you respect the man you respect the rank.” I do my best to live by this in the Marine Corps. I believe that myself and for the most part everyone at every rank can have trouble at times remembering our place in the Corps. We must all remind ourselves that respect is due to those above us even when we just want to say what comes to mind. That for sure is my downfall in life. We all struggle with it from making inappropriately timed jokes to just normal conversations when we are
While Lincoln was able to very successful leading with the head, it is important to know that he did an even better job leading with his heart. It takes an extremely intelligent person to be able to lead with both the head and the heart, leading with the heart entails, mainly emotional intelligence. Being able to be emotionally intelligent gave Lincoln the upper hand when it came to leading an entire country. When announcing the Emancipation Proclamation Lincoln simply told his cabinet what his plans was and let them know he did not need them to debate any further, however he then told them to give him their best ideas and he will use them to make his Proclamation even stronger. “From the very first day he tried to gain the respect of those who knew him and during his presidency, citizens could go visit him in his office” (SOURCE).
Being a great leader and role model are two of the highest qualities that a drum major should possess. There is no doubt in my mind that I am not a leader. To help others and to show them right choices is one of my greatest qualities. One of the questions I asked myself when deciding to try out was, ‘Can other students learn and look up to you?’ The answer was yes, other students can look to me for guidance and friendship. Another of my
Leadership is something that stands out. Good leadership is always important. You always want to follow the strongest person in the group right? Well in the book called “Lord of the Flies” Ralph is a better leader than Jack. Some reasons include Ralph has a goal or clear vision of being rescued.
“ I think a hero is any pearson really intent on making this a better place for all people” ( Maya Angelou). This quote explains my claim by proving the people that are heroes are those who affect our environment in little ways as well as big. When people think of heroes they think of those that have super powers like spiderman and superman and did major things to save the world, but real heroes are those that do small things to help us and our society.A true hero is an everyday person who helps people who can not help themselves, respectful to those around them, and is someone who makes the better or harder decisions. Some examples of the function of a hero in our society is an everyday person who helps people who can not help themselves, respectful to those around them, and is someone who makes the better or harder decisions. There are those around you that you don’t even notice are heroes that you meet in the real world.
Yes, he changes for the better and completes heroic acts along the way, but many things he does are done to help improve his reputation or used to show off. He is unwilling to admit a weakness, not acknowledging fear until facing the monster. But, Gilgamesh does have moments of selflessness. He completes what Campbell would call the hero's journey and comes out a better person. However, I do not find enough of the qualities that I look for in a hero in Gilgamesh.
As I began to prove myself within the division and making up for my mistake it was also met with jealousy from my peers. I was told by my peers that “only reason I was put in charge or got the added responsibility was because of Senior Chief”. It wasn’t always easy being put into leadership positions especially when I was still fairly new and had been in trouble no so long ago. I knew that as long as I stayed focused and did my job well in time I would earn the respect of my peers. My supervisors saw the hard work I would put in everyday, would not hear me complain of how bad the job was at times, and I was never late.
Make the most of yourself because that is all there is for you. This is a famous quote by Ralph Emerson and it is also very relevant in Anthem by Ayn Rand. In the society that equality lives in there was no tolerance for thinking of yourself everything is for your brothers. Equality then learns to start thinking of himself more through creating the light because he is motivated to create by self improvement. It can be concluded that equality 's main motivation in Anthem is self-improvement because when you read Anthem he is always striving for something better an example is when he says my happiness needs no higher aim to vindicate it.
It comes from the hunters and barbarians that we as humans once were, being elite and strong and powerful, trying to be the best that we can be as life to them was the survival of the fittest. He says that “the continuing and dominating collective instinct, and feeling of superiority of a higher race, a master race, in comparison to a subservient race--this is the opposition of ‘Good’ and ‘Bad’. (15)” Nietzsche insists that the “well-born” did not have to “manufacture their happiness by contemplating their enemies, or convince themselves of their happiness by lying to themselves,” that they were more confident and content with themselves and their decisions because they were “too wise to dissociate happiness from action, (26)” They are the beasts of their
As their reality becomes known for people putting them down because of their differences . Everyone came into this world the same way and everyone will eventually leave the same way as well, but while your here you need to know a little secret. “What makes us different, is the very thing that makes us special”. A wise man once said that, a very, very wise man, his name, Nelson Mandela. He became so significant in the race to better mankind because he fought for the right to be heard.
