I’m the piece to my own puzzle!
I have fears! No matter who I think I am or how brave I am, I always will have a fear. But I can also succeed. I just have to never give in or give up. Would I rather quit now because it’s to hard or I can’t do it? Well, if I want to succeed I can’t give up I’m stronger than that. To me I’m my strongest aspect.
What is success? What is fear? How does it affect me? How does one affect another?
All these questions are asked, but never answered. In this post I will discover the answers to these questions. I will also fill this post with my opinions, questions, concerns, and thoughts. All about the songs and videos Let It Go, Monster, and Dream. This post will even help me better understand success and fear.
Success is no easy thing to accomplish it takes hard work. I can’t just expect to go through life easily. No, life is going to be the hardest thing I will ever encounter. And if I want to succeed I am going to have to put every bit of strength and self-confidence into it. Because trust this once I succeed all the pain and suffering I had will be worth it.
I have a fear! Fear can consist of many things it can be that I’m shy, or I’m scared of spiders, or that I’m afraid of being alone. There are thousands of fears out there!
The problem about fear is it sometimes stops me from being successful. The reason why it stops me from being successful is it makes me consider if I’m doing the right thing or the wrong thing. I know at this point their probably thinking “isn’t that a good thing” well yes and no. Yes, because I should always do the right thing. No, because to be successful I have to learn from my mistakes to know not to make them again.
Monster is a song about the Monster that everybody has and what it is. In the song Monster, Eminem has a Monster that he can’t control and it’s putting a bad effect on him, and influencing him to do things he shouldn’t be doing. The Monster that he has is being to shy and doing drugs, and not being able to be with his family. These problems are hard to overcome so in the song he is wanting to be free and do the things he loves. But it’s hard because if he does what he really wants to do he won’t be able to see his family.
By now people would be thinking what does the song Monster have to do with fear and success? Well it has to do with a lot see in the song Eminem has a Monster that’s stopping him from doing the things he wants to do because he doesn’t know how that’s called a FEAR. Well what about success well for him to succeed he has to man up and face his fears!
Let It Go is an heart warming song about a girl that’s tired of being something shes not. She wants to be the real her. Though she is to afraid to do it because she doesn’t want to hurt anyone. She holds it all in until one day she just cant hold it back anymore and she lets it all go. All she wants to do is be FREE.
Both success and fear are involved in this song. The part that has do with fear is she’s to scared to be who she really is beneath her cover just because she doesn’t want to hurt anyone. She will succeed when she becomes free.
The video Dream is about a Gymnast and a Prisoner who both want to be free. In the video the gymnast broke his leg and didn’t know how to do the flip that he did before because he was to scared that’s called a FEAR. Though he never gave up until he got it and succeed. The prisoner on the other hand was worried he wouldn’t make the jump to be free so he kept trying and trying an working out but he still couldn’t get it. Then one day a old man told him to try it without a rope the Prisoner was going to try but he was fearful of what might happen if he doesn’t make it. But he does take off the rope and jumps off the ledge with his eyes closed and he makes it. He made it because he never gave up, that’s SUCCESS!
The song Monster, the video Dream, and the other song Let It Go are all alike because in each one somebody wants to become free and they don’t want to be judged because of who they are. In all of them they each want to succeed in what they want to do but there are some obstacles that leave them wondering if they should do it.
Success is not something I can just be given, it something that I have to work hard to accomplish. For me the biggest thing I want to succeed at is life. Life is not going to be easy for anyone. Life is going to actually be the hardest thing that anyone will encounter. So for me that’s why I want to succeed at life the most. If I want to succeed at something whether it’s getting an A on my math test or even learning how to do a back-bend. I must never give up, or give in. I have to keep failing and making mistakes because one day I’m going to succeed and every ache and pain will all be worth while.
Some past experiences with success is when I study for tests in classes like Social Studies, Math, and Science. Since, I would study hard I would get an A or sometimes a B. Another experience of success is when I had a B in Social Studies and I was like I can do better than that so I worked hard on all me assignments until I got an A in Social Studies. I was so happy because I hate anything less than an A and because I succeeded!
Fear is something I will have and witness. It’s no easy thing to overcome, I have to work hard at the thing I’m afraid of to be able to seize my fear. I just have to look in the eye of fear and understand that fear is stopping me from what I want to get to. Fear can come in many sizes and can be thousands of different things. It can go from being scared of spiders to being scared of heights. It can be anything we just have to learn not to be afraid.
Just to add this my monster is that I underestimate myself and that I’m very shy. They are probably how does that affect success? Well believe it or not it has a great impact on stopping me from succeeding. One of the reasons why being shy stops me from succeeding is that being shy stops me from asking a question if I don’t understand something in school then I most likely get a foul grade on something. Another reason why shyness affects me is it stops me from talking to people. So I don’t make a lot friends because I don’t communicate much.
One of the reasons why underestimating myself has bad affect on me succeeding is that I will write down an answer and it will be right but I underestimate myself so I change it and get it wrong. But I know one thing I’m the key to my own success!
Before I end this I want to let you in on my biggest fear which is I have a fear of being alone. I honestly don’t know why I fear of being alone I just do! Sometimes I get mad and I wish I was alone but then when I’m alone I no longer want to be.
This post has been the funnest and the hardest post, which makes it even better. See, to me the harder something is the more effort I should put in it to succeed at it because when I go through all the pain and hard-work I put into something I feel like I can accomplish anything.
Anyways I hope everybody that read this post really enjoyed reading my post as much as I enjoyed making it! Though I have one more thing I need everybody who reads this post to think about this “What was Or What Can Be?” Okay that raps up everything. Thanks for reading my post! Don’t forget to read any of my other posts. Thanks! Bye!
