What Is Determination?
Amy Purdy's Story
Do you have someone in your family or heard of someone that lost their leg or arm?Well Nick Vujicic had lost both legs and arms at birth. He himself is very determined to succeed in life by trying to find a way to do things on his own. For instance, when Nick swims he breathes in to go up and exhales to go down. Nick can also hold his breath longer than an average person because he doesn’t need to give oxygen to legs and arms. Compared to a an average person that swims with their arms and legs, Nick swims very differently. Also Nick walks differently than other people. He has to use his “drum stick” and his momentum from his chest to move.This is also something that he does very different than others. Overall, Nick is really determined to accomplish many other things.
You have probably heard of Steve Jobs right? If you haven’t then I’ll tell you how he made Apple. At the age of 20 he had started Apple in his parents garage. But at the age of 30 he got fired from the company he made because Apple’s Board Director decided to to take the company in a new direction. However, Steve said that getting fired was the best thing that happened to him, because then he could think more creatively and re-experience the joy of making a company. Then, Jobs went to make a software company called Apple. This is how he made apple. To conclude, Jobs was determined to make a software company.
