Emerson clarified, “that he must take himself for better” (2). Nevertheless, be your own person and allowing society to shape who a person. Emerson also clears up that, “he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried’ (2). Emerson states this considering, that the reader can be directed to be your own person and figure out how if they were to try, but until then no good will come from what society wants you to be.
We need to be amazed and interested in something if we want to learn about it. For example, is as if a boy watches a soccer game for the first time. He is intrigued by the players' moves and tricks and if he arrives at such point where he likes it, he would love to imitate them. Once he know the basics, or so called definitions, everything else follows. I also agree that the next step is to have courage, courage to pursue and do what you like. To me it is to lose the fear of the unknown, or challenge
Practice can be the key to improving. In every area of education, in every sport, with every musical activity, anything that requires a good performance, those who practice tend to understand the material more. Malcolm Gladwell in his book Outliers states just how important this can be. Going off of the idea that “practice makes perfect”, his entire second chapter is dedicated to persuading his audience to believe 10,000 hours is what it takes to succeed. Examples Gladwell provides include how Mozart didn’t create his greatest works until later in his life after he had gained experience, how the Beatles performed in multiple practice concerts in Hamburg, Germany before becoming musical sensations, and how Bobby Fischer and chess grandmasters
Author Ralph Waldo Emerson once sad " Unless you try something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow". On past experiences in my life I would agree with Emerson because one will never truly master something but people everyday have said people have mastered a sport or a instrument but everyday that person practices on that one thing all the time. Look at some great sports players like Messi or Stephen Curry both are spectacular at what they do. Messi was looked at by many people when he was young at not able to play due to how short and small he was. He started to practice on end to help him get to a point where a small soccer team picked him up and play for them at this point he wasn't done so he got even better and now competes with some of the other worlds best
Through excellent metaphors, Emerson stresses that you must first trust yourself to achieve greatness from your own genius, to realize your potential, and to be self-reliant. Your inner genius, when tapped into, allows you to build self-reliance. Some people might argue that you only need to depend on yourself. If you are totally self-reliant you’re going to have a narrow perspective because you can only pull from your own life experiences or from your own family’s or community’s involvement. However, I am arguing that Emerson uses strong metaphors to show that even with a belief in individualism and self-reliance, one must also trust other sources such as society and God.
The first step involves setting goals and planning out For example, in order for me to learn how to do injections, or draw blood I’d have to practice in a clinic. Doing these tasks correctly means asking others for help when needed, setting a goal, and planning out the strategy to learning it, monitoring my progress, and getting feedback from others about my performance. The best way deliberate practice can help me fully learn these new skills is by practicing them repetitively. You know the saying “practice makes perfect?” You can’t learn how to do billing, or how to administer injections overnight. It takes time, and effort to learn something new. Paying attention to what you’re doing is very important as well.
Forced to Grow Up Even after having a kid, some people still have the feel of childhood and do not get the concept of being adult, in some cases people are forced to grow up, but do they really ever grow up? In the story, the first part last by Angela Johnson puts Bobby and Nia into an adult situation when they are just in high school, still living childhood lives. Throughout their experience, there is the same concept, coming of age. Bobby does come of age by considering himself a man or an adult, by taking the responsibility of a child on his own and by stopping the activities or actions he did as a child.
No one is born knowing how to do everything but we can all be taught. Sometimes, there are circumstances in life where factors out of our control can change who we are. Every challenge we face has the ability to teach us a variety of lessons; we just have to be willing to
rely on the teachings from green dawn to motivate me to stay driven and self-disciplined. Competing in Science UIL Competitions has taught me that; if you want to be the best at something, you will have to stay driven and force
Second, you need to Carol Dweck said, “People may start with different attitudes and different aptitudes, but it is clear that experience, training, and personal effort take them the rest of the way.” Therefore, that's saying that if your not focus on what you need to do, you’re not going anywhere in your life. Robert Sternberg said,”The present-day guru of intelligence writes that the major factor in whether people achieve expertise is not some fixed prior ability, but purposeful engagement lots of practice or as his forerunner, Binet, recognized, it’s not always the people who start out the smartest who end up the smartest.” However, if you build your confidence and set your mind on something you will
deliberately focus on developing our skills, then the results will come if we put in the time. It is really at its core, just producing a volume of work in order for us to get the failures out of the way on to extricating the gems.
If one practices enough, then one will be able to do anything he sets his mind to. People who wish to achieve success must be willing to spend the time on what they wish to reach success in. For one to be successful in what he wishes to do he must be good at what they are trying to be successful in. The only way to be good is to practice, practice, practice.
There are many factors that play a very important part in our lives. Consistent practice, a growth mind-set, and supportive mentors light up the road that leads us to success. If someone practice for hours, but does not have a growth mind-set or supportive mentors, then it is next to impossible to accomplish his goal. And if another one has a growth mind-set, but does not practice or has someone to support him, then he can not make it to the end. Thus, all of these factors complete each other to pave the road of success. Practicing for hours makes us better at doing that thing. Having a growth mind-set helps us improve ourselves. The supportive mentors give us the strength to make it through the bad times. High achievers are not naturally gifted, but they had all the factors that helped them be where they are now. Their hard work paid off nicely at the
Author Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, "Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow." He is stating that things must be taken to higher level if I ever want to become better at what I am doing. Based off my experiences, I agree with Emerson's statement. I agree with Emerson's statement because of my soccer experiences, band experiences, and because of my piano difficulties. First of all, I was not always that great at soccer. It took me years to get to the level I am at today. I had to practice as much as I could because I wanted a future with soccer and I wanted to be the best I could be. There are so many skill moves and so many different styles to kick the ball. I would always go outside
Drucker (2005) states that one of the most important things a person should do is to self-evaluate. They need to look internally and try to determine what their true strengths are. Often, the skill set to which a person is born will be what they assume that they are best at and consequently people often misidentifying what their strengths are. The best way to understand what you are really best at is to get feedback from other people (Drucker 2005, page 2). A person can also provide feedback for themselves provided they
