Transcript of S1 Obstacles 05: The Victory
Of Mice and Men The scenario is where Lennie's mental disability is misunderstood. Lennie, from Of Mice and Men, and his obstacles can be compared to movies like Rain Man and Radio. Like Lennie, Raymond from Rain Man and James from Radio both suffer from some kind of disability which causes many obstacles for the characters to overcome. Although it may not seem like it, Lennie's obstacle was overcome when George, his best friend and caretaker, shot him in the back of the head to put him out of the misery and trouble he was about to go through. To overcome the obstacles him and George faced, they had to stand their ground and not give up on their dreams. They thought that if they worked hard enough and kept believing, all their hopes and dreams would come true. There are so many quotations about overcoming obstacles. The one I chose represents how obstacles don't have to defeat you, you can defeat your obstacles. “Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” ~ Michael Jordan. An obstacle that I had to face was learning a new language and a new culture when I traveled to China on a missions trip a year ago. Last September, my mom and I traveled to China on a missions trip, I not only had to learn a new language to get by, but I had to learn a new culture as well, a culture that is so very different from ours. Language is an obstacle people face when they travel to foreign countries. However, this obstacle, like any other, can be overcame. “To be a survivor in life, one must seize the moment, and believe that she can make her dreams come true. It is not easy at all, but if she does fulfill her wishes, it is safe to say that she survived life!”Full transcript
To be survivor in life, you must never give up. Giving up often seems like the best and easiest way to get things done. In most situations though, giving up is not the best thing to do. You should always stay positive and keep hope. Continue to go after your dreams, you will come to bumps in the road, but you will just have to overcome the obstacles and continue onto the path of your dreams.
