Throughout generations in literature, “to live deliberately” has been the goal and purpose of life. As Alexander Supertramp (aka Chris McCandless) said, “The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun” (57).
Author Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” I find this quote to be extremely accurate. While I am sure that many would argue that there is an abundance of other great things one can do with their life I would certainly have to disagree. In my opinion being yourself is ones greatest accomplishment because not being yourself can lead to unhappiness and anxiety, It gives other people a better understanding of who you are, and it makes it easier to make friends with people you will actually enjoy being around.
For me this quote means that you always have to be the best version of yourself, and that in life there will always be sacrificces in order to be succesful.
I believe the school endeavours to provide as much variety of opportunity as possible to allow each child to find something they are good at. The mission and aims show that the school recognises the diverse nature of its children and families, and their individual faiths, cultures and abilities and encourages its
Being at peace with myself and developing, or maintaining, lasting relationships as my true self, or sage, without the hyper-achiever mode I ordinarily experience, is particularly appealing to me.
Mansfield State High School (MSHS) is an institute that promotes the wellbeing of its students and creates a protective learning environment by reducing the risk-taking behaviours of its pupils. However,
It’s very important to develop yourself everyday, to think outside the box. I like Einstein observation, that “the significant problems we face today cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them”. In order to solve them we need to experience a reframing. I learned this lesson from one big training for leaders in Austria and now I was surprised to hear about this again. So it is really easy, if I want to get something bigger – salary, fame, recognition, fun, time – I need to start to do something differently. During one class at the Miami Dade College I was trying to figure out current problem, that separates me from next level of development and I decided to create a paradigm shift and change my environment for more successful people with positive emotions, to break with my traditions of spending time and old ways of thinking and find friends in more successful reality and avoid people with defensive pessimism. For this step it is important to have a fresh perspective or different viewpoint. It is clearly that each of my friends, co-workers, members of my family is a reflection of myself, my choices and my believes. Something in me wants to keep things as they are. But for getting to my dreams of being successful and effective in my personal life, in my relationship and my career, making myself healthier, happier and more effective, I need to do something differently.
I agree with this statement to a certain extent since Dover Castle has played an important part in the History of Britain. The location is what gives national importance to Dover since it is only 21 miles away from France which also makes it open to trading. It is the gateway to England and first point of siege, hence the Castle being "the guard –post of England" (1).
I must not challenge my worth by weighing myself against with others. It is because I am different and each of us is only one of its kinds. My goals for this year must not set by what other people believe what is important. It is I and me alone know what is best for me...I presume!
In the book 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey brings 7 key things teens need to live a productive, open, and successful life to the table. Covey took 7 concepts teens are hesitant to tap into and made them easy to understand and adapt to. He manages to capture his audiences attention by sharing stories of other teens that we could easily relate to. Although each aspect of the habits were relatable to each aspect of my life, I was most engaged with habits 2:Begin with the end in mind, 3:Put First Things First, and Habit 4:Think Win-Win.
I also believe that learning from our mistakes is very important, and the first person that critiques our actions is ourselves. If we see what we have done wrong we can determine a better outcome for the future. The activities teach us very important lessons about what we can about issues we care about, that what you do has impact on everyone. So just by picking up one plastic bottle is saving lives of many other

To lead a happy and fulfilling life, I believe we should all discover our own philosophy of life. Exercising the ability to rationally use our thinking and reasoning abilities is essential. We should all strive to be honest, good people and live our lives as well and happy as possible. Through experience we learn about ourselves and the world around us. I still have
