This story I’m going to share with you is one hundred percent true. Four years ago, there was this first grade boy that struggled with learning. People called him dumb countless times but he never cared. Even his parents doubted he could do it, but he never cared. He said that he would get to the top and never doubted himself. He studied his math book countless times and begged his dad to give him a chance. He knew it was his only chance to be what he had dreamed every night. One year had passed and he was not the best, but he was above average. Another year had gone by and there he learned that the only way to motivate him was pain and determination. He took his pencil and studied harder. After a month he was accepted into the honor class and wasn’t surprised. He thanked his knowledge and proved to his classmates that knowledge and goal seeking reveals it to the ones who prove their worthiness. From this story we learned that this child had his own beliefs and he worked hard for what he wanted. We learn that even if difficult work problems and honor classes lie between us and our goal; we can choose to get back up and learn no matter how hard we’re hit.
When you believe that you can do something and you want it badly, you can choose to take it and dream that you’ll meet your goal one day no matter how hopeless it seems. Knowledge says,” If you fail to achieve me, and yet you keep trying; I will reveal myself to you. Of course trying hard is a good quality to getting through the obstacles that lie between you and knowledge, but what about not quitting? The boy in the story I shared with you tried his best and never gave up. A good person says this when someone discourages him; don’t discourage me because I will never quit even if it will take forever. When it seems hopeless, I know how it feels and you feel like letting it down; but you have a chance waiting to be used. When Steve Jobs was forced to resign from Apple did he quit or make a comeback? Did that first grader quit or make a comeback? The answers to the questions are that they made a comeback. All the successors in the world; did they ever give up to make it to their goal? In learning one of the obstacles that lie between us is getting through the war; a place where we most likely will give up. We can choose to keep going no matter how many shots you take, but you just need to rage on.
Learning is something unpredictable that helps you in your life. Anybody can achieve it even though they think they can’t. Sometimes it depends how hard you try to learn it and how many times you’ll keep trying. Just remember that the obstacles of knowledge stand no chance against what you truly want to know.
