Danny proved that just because of your size, doesn’t mean you can’t be the best. His dedication proves that he is willing to sacrifice anything, which many people should learn from. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you just stop and give up, you try harder the next time to accomplish your dreams and it could lead you to a successful
Sacrificing their individuality and creativity is just a step in the right direction towards their version of success. Even though sacricinfing one’s true self is great, they are willing to do so if it brings them profit in their own lives. Ultimately, the selfish need for success outweighs the corruption and negativity it brings to the overall system, and in that respect, restricts itself from progressing towards change. Because a generic system like a college can not cater to every individual, there are always concrete flaws, one of which is the pressure to confrom. For a student to obtain success as they have come to know, they believe conformity is of the utmost importance.
Is winning everything? Some say winning is all that matters. However, winning is not everything because building teamwork, having fun, and getting better all matter. First, building teamwork is a key to success. Without teamwork there would be no team.
His theories and those who share the same thoughts are not often talked about, as society would rather live on believing in equal opportunity for everyone to obtain some form of success. While there are some who remain outliers to this theory, to Gladwell it makes much more since to think about success as being based on the situations surrounding someone rather than based on their ideals as an individual. Everyone has different ideas of success and how to obtain it so it is nearly impossible for those who truly look deep into it—like Gladwell-- to think that success is a representation of a singular
Even though he doesn't actually accomplish his goals, through no fault of his own, he still puts an effort in. The American Dream is valuable because everyone wants to be better than the next one, and the American Dream definition in one word would be success, which is valuable. Walter shows that dreams could come true but there will always be bumps in the
When you do not ask for help when you need it, you assume all of the burden on yourself that would have easily and gladly be shared with you. Besides placing the extra burden on top of your shoulders, you also deprive those who would have loved to assist you of the opportunity to do so. Being able to ask for help makes you a stronger person and in the long run, makes it easier to become what you dream about
The Importance of Hard Work The age old question is what is more important, hard work, or talent, most people would respond with talent without thinking about it for more than a few seconds. There would only be a select few that would say hard work, I being one of those few. Hard work is more important than talent because people that work hard are willing to learn new things and excel, whereas people with talent will only stick to the one thing they are good at. There is also no such thing as talent, only deliberate practice. One other major factor in the argument of talent versus hard work is, that there are many examples of hard workers, and not those of talent.
It would be great to win, don’t get me wrong, but I found that having amusement was a higher priority. If I was doing my best and giving my all, it didn't bother me that I lost. In fact it just pushed me to do better. You learn at lot from experience, if you know what you’re doing wrong, you learn a lot more, than just constantly winning. You have to fail before you can succeed and win.
Though Gladwell made a few good points, the only true formula for success includes a combination of both innate ability and practice. You must be naturally gifted at something and willing to put in the time and effort to genuinely be a master of it. Without innate talent, someone will never be able to be successful at something. So, do you think talent is involved in the making of a
The better players are the ones who get special opportunities that do lead to future success but a players birthday is not something that can give opportunities to further a person's success. If that was the case success would be 100 percent on luck but it isn't success is about working hard and getting noticed. Once they are noticed, like gladwell said they are given opportunities that lead to their future
