“Kindness is the essence of greatness.”

-Joseph B. Wirthlin

What Mr. Wirthlin is saying is that in order for you to be great you have to be kind. If you are kind to other great things will comes to you and you will also be a great person yourself. For example that 12 year old kid named Ian that showed his act of kindness at the baseball game. At the game he caught a baseball that a player throw at him he saw that another kid was sad because he wanted to ball so he walked over to the kid and handed him the ball. Because of this simple act of kindness he got a baseball bat signed by his favorite player and he got to attend 3 another games for free. You shouldnt do kind things to get things in return you should be kind for the simple fact that its the right thing to do. Remember that you should always choose the right.

Reflection:

This career does not interest me at all so that’s the reason why I would not like to become a speech pathologist. This career has to do with teaching people how to speak again and if they can’t you would have to teach them a new way to communicate which would most likely be sign language. I rather work in a school where I could teach kids all about math and science and how to read and write and not only one thing like how to speak.

What this person is saying is pretty straight forward he is saying that whatever we imagine is what we will accomplish. If you visualize yourself succeeding in life than you will succeed in life but if you visualize yourself not doing anything with your life than you won’t become something or someone in life.  in order to succeed you need to visualize yourself succeeding in life if you can’t do that than you will  fail in life. Whatever you become in life is because you imagined yourself becoming that in the future. Nothing is impossible in life as long as you imagine it happening.
