However; it did quite the opposite, instead it brought more conflict and uneasiness to the people. While many disagree with Machiavelli’s points about what makes a good leader, I find them favorable. While leaders during this time were expected to please everyone, Machiavelli makes the point that it is not possible to do so. One argument he makes is “A man who wishes to make a profession of goodness in everything must necessarily
The mindset of people have a lot to do with the American dream and as for hard work, it’s something that has to be done because without it, nothing much is achievable. In an article “How to achieve the American Dream” by Suzanne Lucas she explains how “Some people pat themselves on the back when they do as little work as possible. While this provides temporary fun, it won 't help towards real success.” Working hard is something that can be done by anyone who really wants to say they succeeded, yet many do not want to work and still want to say the dream is dead when they simply, are not trying to make it alive for themselves. However, some people that work hard and have a strong mindset did move up, proving that the dream is alive if you
He often, I feel like, wants to understand them. He quotes “I dont give a damn, except that I get bored sometimes when people tell me to act my age. Sometimes I act a lot older than I am - I really do - but people never notice it. People never notice anything.” he can 't fit in with them so he despises them because they are everything that he should be but
Mistakes are universal, but everyone responds to being incorrect in different ways. The way that people choose to deal with their mistakes defines their integrity. The popular opinion is that apologizing makes up for the inaccuracy, but conversely, I believe that apologizing does not simply make a person ‘good’. A strong person is someone who proves that they intend not to make the same mistake again. An apology loses it’s meaning after it is repeated over and over.
One example of this is when Katz says, “Empathy is for nerds. You can help your best buddy, under certain circumstances. Everyone else is on his own” (317). This shows that men really do not tend to have sympathy for one another. Men tend to not show a lot of sensitive emotion, instead they might take that emotion and turn it into a more angry emotion and get mad easily.
A perfect or dystopian society would have everything we wish. We could live without racism and have a nation where everyone is equally treated no matter what their racial orientation is. Since some problems we encounter today are caused by the government. Most sepcifically our president. Some people agree with him and others do not which causes a stir-up between citizens.
But eventually it will subside and something else will take its place… At the end of pain is success.” Most people don’t achieve success because they don’t rise over their challenges. That challenge may be a traumatic event, geographical surroundings, or a physical disability. But it is up to each individual to rise above their pain and achieve greatness. Everyone faces their own challenges in life. The same thing can happen to two different people, one will use it as an excuse saying “I cant… because…” while the other will say “I will… because…” The common denominator between all success stories is that they didn’t quit in the face of adversity and uncertainty.
There are many reasons that one may choose to procrastinate, there are also consequences, but there are benefits that we tend to overlook. A lot of people procrastinate, but why do they do it when they know it causes them stress? “Many people tell themselves that they procrastinate because they are disorganized, lazy, or worse, because they just don’t care enough” (Wiegartz). Some people believe that if they procrastinate, they don’t have to blame their lack of skill for not getting things done correctly. Rather than blaming their lack of skill, they can blame their lack of attentiveness and motivation.
In order to be punctual and successful in life one must respect and follow time. If a person does not respect and value time he or she will always lack in some way or the other. From this harsh but valuable experience I learnt that no matter where you go you will always have to deal with people who may lack in social skills and may not want to blend in as much as you do. Even though people may not realize it but they might hurt others feelings unknowingly due to the lack of communication or social skills by ignoring or just not replying to a question, comment or concern. English 100 was not the only course where I faced such difficulty but there were many other courses which made me go through such experiences of not having as hard working group members as me.
A person knows most of all what pleases and distresses them. Of course, they also experience these things on the personal level; only an individual directly feels what happens to them. However, it cannot be said that all humans are in concord with themselves in this respect. Non-virtuous or “base” people may “appear to have these features,” but they “are at odds with themselves, and have an appetite for one thing and a wish for another” (1166b). They may give into their harmful desires and choose to do actions that cause them harm.
