hardship, and being optimistic during that hardship. A person’s view of the world can affect how
The more I observe, the more I understand who I am. I come from a small town in a very cold part of the world, where very few exciting events occur. This means, I have to work extra hard to become an artist. I remember having my neighbor say, “You aren’t an artist until I buy a painting from you,” and she did. I never wanted the money, but I did enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that what I create makes others happy. So many people in town encourage me and support me with my dreams, and all I do in return is help them back in return. When people need a little sunshine on gray, winter days, I am there to lend them my happiness. That is why I am able to succeed. When failure strikes his wrath upon me, I learn from the mistakes rather be held back –being optimistic allows me to grow much quicker than if I were to be
“Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant.” What the Roman poet Horace was saying was that when there is an obstacle in our way, our true colors will radiate. I could not agree more. When we as human beings feel passionate about achieving a goal, we may learn something new of ourselves, maybe a new trait that we did not know we possessed, when we reach new heights we did not know we could push ourselves towards. Challenges are similar to tests. Challenges are faced every day, but how we respond to them determines how strong we really are. Prime examples are superheroes and students that move dramatically.
People express the decisions they reach each day and their desire to alter some of the outcomes. As I observe the world around me, some just graduating high school ours rebuilding themselves for something better in life. Everyone is striving to be something in life; it’s as if the returns are boundless by the time you graduate college. Just learning to watch people and the decisions they make can affect the means which I adopted to pick my profession. Becoming a paramedic educated me on surveying people and their habits. Being empathetic amongst the things you do, sometimes comes with a penalty, others come with admiration. The unique obsession that urges me to exceed each time is knowing that each human being is helped, through everything
evokes the thoughts of past conversations with my friends and others regarding our future and some of them stating in response that I should rather choose an easy career and not attempt to try to obtain the job I dream of, pursue, and work hard for in order to obtain it. However, some of my friends and people I have talked to understand me and have a desire to be successful as well, and step outside from the norms and have a desire to do something enormous impacting various people, and become prosperous. In addition, the thoughts that come to me when listening to this verse is my strong desire to be successful, prosperous, and the fact that my goals are far from the average person goal and desire to obtain my goals despite the difficulty and extensive hard work that is required in order to achieve it.
Having a define description of how one desire their life should be, give them the energy to make positive effort in achieving their desired goals, but when there is a lack of a brighter view of the future it is can stand as an obstacle to resolve their present issues. Everyone want a miracle when given an opportunity, because in life there are so many challenges that can affect the desired outcome.
Oh boy, this would be a long paper if it is based on my relationship between expectations and academic success. I first started wanting to study psychology, then decided for modern languages, after that I went for film making and then ended up studying business which is what I am doing now. One thing is always obvious in all the fields that I have tried, which is always to be the best and put a lot of effort into it, but not in all of the fields my expectations actually met my academic success, as most of those fields of study I ended up abandoning them and with that my dreams and then I had to start all over again and
This book attempts to teach the reader to ponder on what they truly want most in life using imagination to set goals and to strive toward them. Being aware of your own actions and intentions helps paint yourself into someone that you wish to become as well as learning to accept who you are as a person. This book is important to me because it helped me overcome my own personal endeavors such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. I now take personal responsibility for my actions and am I weed out negative thoughts and emotions that once led me to delusional conclusions in my thought process.
When people are struck with hardships in life, the way they react reveals their true character. Having a certain mindset can greatly influence how they handle problems, differentiating one person from another. Many can feel discouraged and feel like giving up when they hit a rough patch. In other cases, the will to be in a position better than where they are at the moment gives them the motivation to succeed. Adversity can have a positive effect on the development of an individual's character, providing them with the drive to overcome their current situation.
The five dimensions have been called the “Big Five” and have been used in several psychological studies.
Out of all four dimensions, I believe that I am good self-awareness, self-management, and social awareness. With self-awareness, I am in tune with understanding my strengths and weaknesses as a leader. This occurs often during group works where I feel it gives me an accurate self-assessment. Self-management relates to me as well for I am able to be flexible in a changing environment while looking at the positive side of things. An example of this would definitely be working a retail where you have to have high self-management. As a team member, you have to be trustworthy and flexible, as people call out regularly. With social awareness, I do a lot of understanding in situations and with people as I feel it is a great way to build sociability. I also experience this in the workplace, school, and with friends and
“Are you nuts? Go be a doctor, at least you won’t die poor.” This is exactly what my grandmother said when I gave her the awful news that I wanted to write and direct films for a living. Sound familiar? This is often what aspiring creative individuals hear – not to negate the special few who have thoroughly supportive relatives and friends. But for the rest of us, we get that all too recognizable tone of skepticism, doubt, and in extreme cases, outright pessimism. I don’t blame people for harboring such notions, and neither should you.
You have to have determination, imagination, and inspiration. However, in order to have these three elements in your life, you’ve got to be a positive person first. Don’t let anybody hold you back. I know many of you are underestimated, misunderstood, and judged by negative family members. Some might even think that you are a failure; I know,
Another category included in the first dimension is called “Self-Transcendence” and it is measured by how far we come in our spiritual journey transcending our physical needs. We humans, must sometimes take time to ourselves thought the day to put our mind and body in a calm state.
