Even completing simple things such as sit-up and dancing on a chair was painful at times. I was also not able to participate in gym because it could have made the situations worse. After a couple of month they told me everything was fine. However, in late March early April the same thing started happening again.
After a while of racing down the tramp and flipping into the foam, I decided to challenge myself with flipping off of a high balance beam into the pit. I was so afraid of heights, I felt like even if I tried, I would fall and hurt myself. Whether it was slipping and landing face-first or hitting my head on something hard on my way down. With my grace, it would likely be both. Just as the gym was starting to slowly empty, I decided that that was my last chance.

Failure is vital to the growth of not only heroes, but ordinary people as well, as it teaches them how to move past their guilt and negativity in order to persevere. Through the article Nine Ways to Fail Better, the author shows that it’s not easy to deal with failure, but it is extremely important to move on. The author states, “Blaming yourself for the bad things that happen to you--are probably the biggest reason people metabolize failure badly.” In expressing that one should put the blame on themselves, “for the bad things that happen to [them]” stresses the idea that failure is often inevitable, and there is not much that can change the outcome of the situation. Additionally, there is no sense in feeling shameful about failure. Along with the self-blame associated with failure,

I have had this injury multiple times in the past, and this game was the last straw that broke the camel’s back. I was playing a game with my select team, Panathinaikos FC, and we were down 2-1 in the quarter final match of the spring invitational tournament.

I went back every year to get a MRI and in 2014 I had yet another stroke from what doctors think is just the glue moving around that holds the aneurysm together that causes me to have the strokes.

Johnny is proof that we shouldn’t fight because earlier in the book we learn that he was jumped by Socs, and since then he was always different. Later in the book we see how this really affected Johnny because he ended up killing bob, the soc who tried jumping him and ponyboy. If the socs never tried jumping then neither Bob nor Johnny would be dead. I will apply this to my life by always trying to find a better solution. We now know from reading this book that fighting may solve problems but it will create bigger ones.
In life you are going to be constantly challenged by things whether you want to be or not, but what is important is how you handle yourself in the face of those challenges. Do you shy away and let the challenges beat you or do you take them on, thoroughly accomplish them, and become a better person because of the trial that you endured?

Others may need the same push in recognizing the challenges that will help them and the encouragement to take part in them.
