The patience, compassion and encouragement of one person improved my family’s last years with its patriarch in countless ways. It was this improvement that inspired me to pursue a career as an
The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?
Initially, when I think of someone who handled a great deal of difficulty, yet overcame them and succeeded, I picture Abraham Lincoln. Abe had many struggles that not many people know of. When he was young, Lincoln moved several times
There are many people who went through challenges like these three people who have been through a lot like Ernesto Galarza, Farah Ahmedi, and Annie Johnson. These three people have been through a lot of challenges. The challenge that Ernesto had faced was that had gone to a new school and had to learn english and Farah Ahmedi had to cross the Pakistan border then Annie Johnson had to raise her own children by herself. However, all three shared an ability to accomplish to overcome their challenges to accomplish their goals.
People can overcome anything, even someone such as Wilma Rudolph. Facing Scarlet Fever, and Double Pneumonia, and at the age of 4 contracted polio, and eventually became a 3x gold medalist wiinner. She showed you can overcome any challenge. She also proved that anything you put your mind to you can achieve.
Louie Zamperini, an Olympic track star, B-24 bomber, and a prisoner of war. Few people have all those titles. From trying to beat the four minute mark on the mile, to holding the heavy wooden beam above his head in front of the bird, Louie drive and determination never changed. Louie would never break no matter how bad the situation was and that is what makes him such an inspiring hero. People around the world come across problems every day, some worse than others. Louie teaches the people that no matter how hard the situation is, we must drive to get through it, we must be unbreakable, and in the end good things will come.
However, it was not just his story that inspired me. It was the smile that he carried on his face that amazed me. I asked myself, “How could someone who had endured through so many hardships throughout his life still
Have you ever been scared to accomplish a challenge? I'm going to be talking about the time when I accomplished one of the challenges that I have always wanted to learn how to do. Some people that were involved or a whiteness of my accomplishment was my sister named Malina and my little cousin named Mazzy .
I have had to face many obstacles in my life. I have learned that every obstacle can either make you stronger or brake you. If overcoming the obstacle were easy, everyone would do it quickly and without any difficulties. It is the joy of overcoming the obstacles that makes everything so much worth it. In my case every obstacle has had a purpose. Three unforgettable obstacles that I have overcome are my childhood, an abusive domestic violent relationship, and jail time.
Idols, role models, heroes: These are the people that we all look up to. As Christopher Reeve, who played the role of Superman in various movies, once said, “a hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” Throughout my life I have had multiple heroes, for a multitude of reasons. Helen Keller, for her ability to persevere despite the fact that she was both blind and deaf and yet was able to positively impact others. Amelia Earhart, for her bravery as the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Heidi Berry Krahn, for her incredible strength in times of hardship and her dedication and sacrifice as the founder and executive director of the Center for Animal Research and Education. People look up to their heroes, look up to their many attributes and accomplishments, and aspire to be like them. I have one hero that stands above all the rest, one that does all of the things my other
Too often in life, we are so preoccupied with the destination that we forget to simply admire the journey. When I first read the story of James Rhio O’Connor, I was truly inspired. I am completely in awe that a person can be told that they only have a year to live, then they can turn around and prove all of the doctors and scientists wrong and outlive his prognosis by more than six years. He showed with lots of determination, you can prove that you're strong enough to survive anything.
THE well one more obstacle i became over was to become good at wrestling and i actually started practicing and my coach believe me and one my last tournament i got second place in my tournament and they were all proud of me How i overcame my obstacles was i just kept doing what i needed to do to become successful and i didn't do it by myself i had many people to help me friends family and sometimes people that i don't know and i just never stopped when i was tired or was done with it but people showed me that never give up on your dreams and i just thought of what the prize at the end of the road would give me and it gave me stuff that will help me in life Well one obstacle was that i had to bring up some of my grades and if any of my friends
I was given the opportunity, in the last month, to job shadow at a local physical therapy. It was shocking, in a sad way, yet informing to see the outcomes of people who survived strokes and even cancer. A key point in the day was meeting this older gentleman who survived a stroke, but was forced to be in a wheel chair for the rest of his life. He was a strong and brave man because he wouldn't take being in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. I believe he'd been going to physical therapy for about a month prior to when I was there. I could ramble on telling you about this courageous, nice, and brave man for hours but I'm just going to get to the best part of the story. Before this gentleman showed up for his appointment, the physical therapist I was shadowing told me that this man just recently learned how to walk. That man proved to his doctor, who said his chances of walking again were slim, wrong. That was a memory that I will never
Looking at Christopher McCandless, who a guy who found the way outside of life. As he met nature face to face. This story on how he made his way to the wild. That made me inspire him on his trip to Alaska. How he got a job when people from his home state and the police were looking for him, and also getting through high school and college as he gets a master. Shocking he never used any of these skills in the real world that he ran away from. His parents try to give him a new used car, but he pushed everything away and later on vanished from everything.
The second example is Florence Nightingale, who actively participated in the Crimean campaign of 1854, working in field hospitals as a nurse. Together with 38 assistants, she implemented the principles of sanitation and care for the wounded, so that in less than six months the death rate in infirmaries fell from 42 to 2.2%. This case inspired me for leadership and not being afraid to take important decisions in my nursing practice.
