    Ever since the age of 4, mechanical engineering has been a past thought that has always seemed to be a bizarre art of its own craft. I believe part of that reason came when I would be occasionally taken to car shows since my father had a thing for them. A mystic art I adorn myself to take up in my future career. I became passionate about my soon to be career because of conjuncting reasons. I had an early drive for cars early watching NASCAR occasionally early on my childhood. My parents were mainly delivery drivers in order to hold in our basic income for our families standard living, so learning the basics of car maintenance came easy with them and then for me as time came along and I came to learn basic maintenance and grew to like being able to fix what needed to be fixed and done with. That drive in and of itself is the main reason I came to grow an interest on working on cars and enjoying how to fix them, as I take leisure in both learning and working, for whenever the questions reach the front of my mind, being able to gain useful knowledge of what I need to know has been a growing skill of mine I tend to work on more when the time comes for my eventual employment for an apprenticeship. The time I overcame adversity came in the form of a series of unfortunate events near my birth. I had much to look forward to when I lost my father from a heart attack at only age 4. No in depth knowledge of what I could enjoy from his perspective of the world, for the only adversity came when my mother could not uphold the necessary income to raise 3 children in the same home. My brother went to his father's home while me and my sister were held up in the foster care system. The combination of subtle service pay and constant neglectful behaviors that came from the adults meant that people back in the day who were broke from the financial crash of 2008 could make a tidy profit off intricately neglecting the children they are being payed to raise and getting away with this. This in turn sent me through 6 neglectful houses all to where I was left in the hospital with pneumonia at only 4 years of age. Because of the trauma of the past, I was not able to gain the trust of likeminded people my age, and people I would have liked to known. A problem I work towards keeping controlled in my good future. These days, a scene from an automotive service bay is somewhat like a scene from an operating room. A group of highly skilled men and women meticulously pour over their work, using sophisticated instruments and finely tuned minds to diagnose and repair the complex workings of the intricately constructed metaphorical organs of the car. Much like cell phones are now capable of doing more than making calls, cars can do much more than drive and park. In recent years, the automotive industry has worked hand-in-hand with major technology companies in order to deliver the most advanced, safest and most comfortable vehicles out there. Cars are becoming large smart devices with advanced emergency braking capabilities, mapping technology for autonomous driving, better fuel efficiency and cars as a service as a form of transportation. There are no shortages of ways in which cars are improving the lives of drivers and other vehicles around them in terms of safety, getting from point A to point B with less of a hassle and entertaining us throughout the process. In the coming years, the automotive industry is expected to progress even further, taking us one step further evermore. One of your main jobs in life is to become an expert in dealing with adversity, to triumph over difficulty, to rise above the challenges of day-to-day life. Keep your thoughts on where you’re going, not on where you’ve been. Keep your eyes on your goals, and keep your chin tilted upward toward the sunshine. Resolve in advance that you will meet and overcome every difficulty, and then, no matter what happens, don’t give up until you do, whatever obstacle may be pelted within my path to great triumph.

    One of my main jobs in life is to become an expert in dealing with adversity, especially within my field in the automotive industry to triumph over difficulty, to rise above the challenges of day-to-day life. It is significant to me to keep my thoughts on where I am going, not on where I have been. Through motivation, my eyes are on the goals, and my chin tilted upward toward the sunshine. Resolving in advance that I will meet and overcome every difficulty, and then, no matter what happens, don’t give up at all. Whenever I accomplish anything, both beneficially large and pleasurably small, I'm always offered that lingering emptiness, and I always take it. It usually arrives shortly after the fireworks dissipate and the confetti drops, and the noise of celebration all fades and I'm left alone. The question monuments itself louder, and all of the accolades I could possibly earn shrink in the face of that one sentence, that yes, this is all there is. Just a series of goals and accomplishments and failures and breaks, and lucky mistakes. That's life. Nothing in particular will fill that empty, cold void. It makes you just want to break further from it all and drift further into a most purely hedonic existence, a pure savoring of the present as is. Wouldn't that be nice to wake up fully content with where you're heading or who you are? I'm quite envious of my cat for this particular reason. But it soon becomes painfully apparent that such a life is exponentially outside of such capacities of an individual socialized into a system that is reliant on our profitable struggle towards finding meaning and identity. For example, an entire industry is based purely around self-help books and cultural excrement just to give us that innocent suggestive spark that tells me to find myself and put in the work. Within the next generations as youth leaders lies a call for you to display your work ethic and moral leadership, Psychological resilience is a key skill for business leaders in any industry. It helps us to face, recover from, and adapt quickly to stressful and difficult situations. The better a leader’s psychological resilience skills are, the more effectively they can tackle stressors, and the better the performance and engagement of their teams. But just how psychological resilience skills enhance leadership can turn the tide to significantly use what I've learned in my high school days and going forward. Let’s make one thing clear. Life is a continuous succession of both small and large problems. No sooner do you get control of one situation when you are hit by another. Often it can feel like life is a process of “two steps forward and one step back.” When you become a great success, you simply exchange one type of problem for another. Before, you had small problems with limited consequences; now you have large problems with enormous consequences. No matter how smart and clever and careful you are, you’ll face life struggles, challenges, difficulties, and sometimes heartbreaking adversities every day, week and month of your life. One of your main jobs in life is to become an expert in dealing with adversity, to triumph over difficulty, to rise above the challenges of daily life. Keep your thoughts on where you’re going, not on where you’ve been. Keep your eyes on your goals, and keep your chin tilted upward . Resolve in advance that you will meet and overcome every difficulty, and don’t give up until you do, whatever obstacle may be pelted within my arduous pathway.

    The evident drive to pursue my accustomed goals on a daily scheduled basis has allowed me to keep a positive outlook for being motivated and being able to accomplish my important deeds of the day. Several internal factors accommodate to such a degree, as in most instances, being able to adjust and pace myself appropriately so that the room to focus on other significant assignments and matters is present has overall been beneficiary to staying efficient and on top of my work, whatever obstacle presents itself as such. Amongst many diverse factors that help situate me at home, school, and work, motivational strategies account for a plethora of more beneficial outcomes for my day to day grind than you would anticipate. For a case such as work that’s evident, To some extent, a high level of employee motivation is derived from effective management practices. To develop motivated employees, a manager must treat people as individuals, empower workers, provide an effective reward system, redesign jobs, and create a flexible workplace. This last point is worth noting. With the widely developing trend toward empowerment in American industry, many employees and employers are beginning to view traditional pay systems as inadequate. In a traditional system, people are paid according to the positions they hold, not the contributions they make. As organizations adopt approaches built upon teams, customer satisfaction, and empowerment, workers need to be paid differently. Many companies have already responded by designing numerous pay plans, which base rewards on skill levels. My best known skills that I’ve adapted and that I’m trying to improve is in the Automotive Engineering business. An automotive engineer specializes in designing and developing vehicles for public or private use. Their job entails conducting extensive research and analyses, conceptualizing plans with fellow experts, building prototypes and structures, troubleshooting problems, and implementing multiple test procedures to identify how the vehicle operates at different conditions and ensure its quality adheres to standards and regulations. Besides developing new vehicles, an automotive engineer may also modify existing models, which requires them to study the market and consumers' feedback, identify the strengths and weaknesses of existing systems, and coordinate upgrades. My adaptability is also a skill I’m willing to acquire while on the job, as automotive technicians must be able to adapt. This industry is constantly changing, and it’s important for technicians to evolve right alongside it. While it can be easy to get stuck in your ways, the best technicians are flexible and ready to take on any new challenge that comes their way. Often it can feel like life is a process of “two steps forward and one step back.” When you become a great success, you simply exchange one type of problem for another. Before, you had small problems with limited consequences; now you have large problems with enormous consequences. No matter how smart and clever and careful you are, you’ll face life struggles, challenges, difficulties, and sometimes heartbreaking adversities every day, week and month of your life.

    I Am Third Scholarship
    My name is Shane. And I am planning to pursue one of my all time favorite career's as a skilled trade Automotive Technician at Universal Technical Institute. I became passionate about my soon to be career because of conjuncting reasons. I had an early drive for cars early watching NASCAR occasionally early on my childhood. My parents were mainly delivery drivers in order to hold in our basic income for our families standard living, so learning the basics of car maintenance came easy with them and then for me as time came along and I came to learn basic maintenance and grew to like being able to fix what needed to be fixed and done with. That drive in and of itself is the main reason I came to grow an interest on working on cars and enjoying how to fix them, as I take leisure in both learning and working, for whenever the questions reach the front of my mind, being able to gain useful knowledge of what I need to know has been a growing skill of mine I tend to work on more when the time comes for my eventual employment for an apprenticeship. Part of the reason to being passionate about having scheduled intervals to get scholarships done is the ability to be able to pursue my goal of working in the automotive engineering business, as I believe that because I have a passion about said goals, I will have a planned format to help meet those goals as a result. To be able to organize and adapt the scholarships needed for college and to be able to get them done and over within a couple of hours at a time is a method I am passionate about adapting to my automotive engineering needs for trade school. Part of what comes with working in the automotive industry is to have the necessary equipment, gear, diagnostics, and proper organization to be able to land and achieve a good profit for you and or your business. To have a slight indicative motivation to be able to pursue what you believe is best for proper work efficiency is a factor that every new career employee should have in mind. If you're always good at something, never do it for free, as I always believe that work ethic is something everyone can strive for. If employers came to realize how passionate new employees can be for their newfound career, they'd take the time to work side by side with them to see what's best for them or how they can work more effectively. This is the belief that passion can create the best work ethic within individuals if employers utilize it for the betterment of their work condition, among other aspects. Overall, passion and motivation has become a driving force for most of the career employed individuals looking to seek opportunities from it. Simplistically, it is how I am able to stick to engineering as a passion in the end.

Resolving in advance that I will meet and overcome every difficulty, and then, no matter what happens, don’t give up at all. This ambiguity is reflected in modern conceptions of entrepreneurship within my future career. Some define it statically, as small business owners or the self-employed, while others narrow it to firms that employ people. This industry is constantly changing, and it’s important for technicians to evolve right alongside it. While it can be easy to get stuck in your ways, the best technicians are flexible and ready to take on any new challenge that comes their way. My trade school vocational programs continues to constantly change. Because of that, our technicians have to be people who can learn something new and adapt in a quick manner. Most technicians will tell you that they are never ‘bored’ in their day-to-day work. This is a fast-paced career, and no two days on the job are alike. Whether you’re meeting with a customer, working on a repair or diagnosing a vehicle, you will have to adapt to your surroundings and be willing to wear multiple hats at times. These days, a scene from an automotive service bay is somewhat like a scene from an operating room. A group of highly skilled men and women meticulously pour over their work, using sophisticated instruments and finely tuned minds to diagnose and repair the complex workings of the intricately constructed metaphorical organs of the car.

In the coming years, the automotive industry is expected to progress even further, taking us one step further evermore. Automotive engineering requires creativity. They are visionaries and are employed mainly on their ability to think outside the box. Their work often includes bringing new products to the market, problem solving and project management. Their main duty is to design, test and develop vehicles. There is more than one path one can take to become an automotive engineer. Everyone thinks you need to get a degree in automotive engineering to get yourself right into an automotive job. While this is the focused path to becoming an automotive engineer, there are other, much more flexible ways that anyone can get themselves into an automotive career. Automotive engineering is a fast, competitive industry but the salary and indirect perks of the job can be very rewarding and beneficially satisfactory in the concluding end.

    Ever since the age of 4, mechanical engineering has been a past thought that has always seemed to be a bizarre art of its own craft. I believe part of that reason came when I would be occasionally taken to car shows since my father had a thing for them. A mystic art I would have yet to experience until the child protective services came knocking on the door when my family couldn't have the resources and support needed when he died. Instead of being a beneficiary and stopping to assist in the support needed, more of a problem was created when cps came to take me away when I was only 4, and here began the tolls that the foster care system took on my overall well-being at such an age. Of course, with the mental strains on my Mother, I had wondered what she was going through when I was in that metaphorical asylum, so I'm pondering the best I can on what I can only remember. I believe I was taken to 3 homes. One home was on a hill side near the offside of the entrance to a trailer park community, a little mobile home off the side. I remember growing so ill of that house and conditions that I developed pneumonia and had to be on some special oxygen tank and inhaler for a couple of days. The owner would refuse to let me out for days while he had a "busy" schedule at hand. As not only that but food was for most days refused to where I grew too ill, cps found out, and I was sent to another home. The 2nd was an apartment room devoid of barely any furniture and maybe a couch. Some black woman was the caretaker, as God knows I barely got to see her spouse often. The limited amount of food I received in that apartment alone made my situation only worse to where I had to be hospitalized for weighing only in the 50-pound range and having pneumonia, it got to where my own Mother had heard about the news and wanted to sneak food to me and my sister whilst She was in there at that time, because the foster care system still wouldn't want to give me back to my Mother before me. So there waited months of miserable hospitalization until I went to my final random foster home, some metal and wood cabin in the rural community, Not a lot came with me clothes-wise, since weight problems had already been an issue, the room smelt of cigarettes and sometimes rotten food at some points to where sleeping became a chore to do for the 2 some-odd months that I was there before I was finally returned to my mother in her custody before me. The pains and suffering that resulted from the negligent awareness and treatment form both the foster care system and the parents hired to only be paid by them has introduced this money mentality to where "If they only keep me for longer, the system will give them their money". and that is where you get cases of negligence, and sometimes just conditional abuse that happens in these households for kids of an uncertain future. It is a pain to talk about this but let alone remember it. But if I ever had the chance to take my reward for the future of my career, I might as well lift off a burden of the past to let me know that I'm never the only one who cares about this.

    In the middle of the 20th century, George Orwell frightened the world with the pessimistic forecast he elaborated in 1984. Since this year is far behind us, the novel may seem outdated regarding the threats and challenges we face today. Orwell, inspired by the events in the Cold War, presented a cruel type of totalitarian society, inspired by the Soviet Union under the rule of Stalin. Yet, the ubiquitous character of the Big Brother denies the idea that Orwell's vision was limited to the events he witnessed. Over twenty years after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Big Brother and his philosophy of governance remain a typical example of the protagonists of power in the world. Orwell's predictions for the future, defined by a boot stamping on a human face, were enough to scare both misanthropic pessimists and idealistic optimists. 1984 is a dystopian novel in its essence, but to me, Orwell was an impeccable realist. The book is so convincing in the fact that this kind of reality is possible for the future of our society, that the writer had to be deeply convinced in its probability. As a touchstone for our culture, 1984 still is a warning alarm that reminds us how things are about to get worse. We survived the bloodiest century in human history, although we still haven't come to the final nuclear annihilation predicted by Orwell. One reading of this book was enough for me to understand that although this writer was inspired by the Soviet society, his vision can be applied to any government, in any period of history. Even his goals – to enslave the citizens and to keep them frightened and threatened by constant wars, existential crises and continuous brainwashing – are easily applicable in today's governmental systems, and in people.

    Part of the reason to being passionate about having scheduled intervals to get scholarships done is the ability to be able to pursue my goal of working in the automotive engineering business, as I believe that because I have a passion about said goals, I will have a planned format to help meet those goals as a result. To be able to organize and adapt the scholarships needed for college and to be able to get them done and over within a couple of hours at a time is a method I am passionate about adapting to my automotive engineering needs for trade school. Part of what comes with working in the automotive industry is to have the necessary equipment, gear, diagnostics, and proper organization to be able to land and achieve a good profit for you and or your business. To have a slight indicative motivation to be able to pursue what you believe is best for proper work efficiency is a factor that every new career employee should have in mind. If you're always good at something, never do it for free, as I always believe that work ethic is something everyone can strive for. If employers came to realize how passionate new employees can be for their newfound career, they'd take the time to work side by side with them to see what's best for them or how they can work more effectively. This is the belief that passion can create the best work ethic within individuals if employers utilize it for the betterment of their work condition, among other aspects. Overall, passion and motivation has become a driving force for most of the career employed individuals looking to seek opportunities from it. Simplistically, it is how I am able to stick to engineering as a passion.

    Bold Speak Your Mind Scholarship
    One sentence that I would share with the world would be "is this all there is?" Whenever I accomplish anything, both beneficially large and pleasurably small, I'm always offered that lingering emptiness, and I always take it. It usually arrives shortly after the fireworks dissipate and the confetti drops, and the noise of celebration all fades and I'm left alone. The question monuments itself louder, and all of the accolades I could possibly earn shrink in the face of that one sentence, that yes, this is all there is. Just a series of goals and accomplishments and failures and breaks, and lucky mistakes. That's life. Nothing in particular will fill that empty, cold void. It makes you just want to break further from it all and drift further into a most purely hedonic existence, a pure savoring of the present as is. Wouldn't that be nice to wake up fully content with where you're heading or who you are? I'm quite envious of my cat for this particular reason. But it soon becomes painfully apparent that such a life is exponentially outside of such capacities of an individual socialized into a system that is reliant on our profitable struggle towards finding meaning and identity. For example, an entire industry is based purely around self-help books and cultural excrement just to give us that innocent suggestive spark that tells me to find myself and put in the work. Likewise, concludingly, maybe this futile urge to become something, to make something out of our lives is the fuel that brought us here. Look at all of the great works of art and advancements in technology that came about from this one tumultuous urge. "Even if we don't feel satisfied, surely we're contributing in some larger way, right?" Sometimes, it's still not enough.

Resolving in advance that I will meet and overcome every difficulty, and then, no matter what happens, don’t give up at all. This ambiguity is reflected in modern conceptions of entrepreneurship within my future career.

Others still follow the “Schumpeterian” dynamic view, or the creation of something new or improved to seize on a commercial opportunity - especially those innovations of product or process that are substanially different, and the growth-oriented businesses that are organized around them. Automotive engineering requires creativity. They are visionaries and are employed mainly on their ability to think outside the box.

There is more than one path one can take to become an automotive engineer. Everyone thinks you need to get a degree in automotive engineering to get yourself right into an automotive job. While this is the focused path to becoming an automotive engineer, there are other, much more flexible ways that anyone can get themselves into an automotive career. Automotive engineering is a fast, competitive industry but the salary and indirect perks of the job can be very rewarding and beneficially satisfactory in the concluding end.

    I feel as if my legacy is no grand one, but rather a legacy in which I'll be granted through inner wit and strength, for as Winston Churchill, one of the most profound political figures of the 20th century states, "strength is granted to us all when we are needed to serve great causes". Victory, in spite of all terror, in spite of all obstacles, and in spite of all hardships, can lead to definite survival in knowing how to go through. This type of mindset lingers when it comes to all the equipment, parts, and terms that I have for my eventual job as an automotive technician. However, a certain mindset must be adopted for me to endure such ambitious goals. For me, I like to make a shaping of my legacy as a creature adapting to a new environment, a new feature of obstacles and conditions will present themselves and likely won't go away any time soon. The only way to counteract with obstacles instead of avoiding them, for me, is to face them yourself. Any and all methods of overcoming the necessary obstacles that you happen to atone for will find you to be on a higher foundational ground. Any more info I can gather on parts terminology, more types of tools, and more types of organizational setup will ultimately land me the upper edge in finding a career as an automotive technician.

Never give in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in to the golden rule of maintaining my potential career, never give in except to convictions of honor and sense.
    Bold Best Skills Scholarship
    My best known skills that I’ve adapted and that I’m trying to improve is the Automotive Engineering business. An automotive engineer specializes in designing and developing vehicles for public or private use. Their job entails conducting extensive research and analyses, conceptualizing plans with fellow experts, building prototypes and structures, troubleshooting problems, and implementing multiple test procedures to identify how the vehicle operates at different conditions and ensure its quality adheres to standards and regulations. Besides developing new vehicles, an automotive engineer may also modify existing models, which requires them to study the market and consumers' feedback, identify the strengths and weaknesses of existing systems, and coordinate upgrades. My adaptability is also a skill I’m willing to acquire while on the job, as automotive technicians must be able to adapt. This industry is constantly changing, and it’s important for technicians to evolve right alongside it. While it can be easy to get stuck in your ways, the best technicians are flexible and ready to take on any new challenge that comes their way. My trade school vocational programs continues to constantly change. Because of that, our technicians have to be people who can learn something new and adapt in a quick manner. Most technicians will tell you that they are never ‘bored’ in their day-to-day work. This is a fast-paced career, and no two days on the job are alike. Whether you’re meeting with a customer, working on a repair or diagnosing a vehicle, you will have to adapt to your surroundings and be willing to wear multiple hats at times Holding an incredible work ethic in my heart. Automotive technicians know that our customers are depending on us, so I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty and put in the hard work required to get the job done.
    Bold Joy Scholarship
    Stigma is probably a primary reason why lots of people struggle with seeking help for mental health and in seeking joy. Historically, it’s not something that has been done in our community. Lots of us were raised to feel like what goes on in this house, stays in this house. So the idea of talking with a stranger about some really personal information is very foreign. I also think it’s really significant to think about the ways that mental health services, in some ways, have been used to further oppress people seeking joy. So you can think about things like child custody and how therapists have been used to take children away from parents. Slaves escaping from their slave masters was, at one point, considered a mental health disorder. And so I think when you think about the relationship between psychology, mental health, there’s not always been a symbiotic relationship, especially in the circumstance of joy. So I think that there are lots of reasons for people to mistrust some of the systems related to such. But I think as individuals talk more about how it can be helpful to speak with a therapist or a trusted friend that can help bring them joy in life, and the benefits that you can receive, makes me overall ecstatic to see more people taking advantage of those opportunities. In conclusion, We're usually either thinking about the past or planning for the future—but neither mindset will bring you joy. Finding joy can only truly exist in the now. Replaying the past or anticipating the future denies us the connection to our own reality and can cause a great deal of pain. If you can learn to exist in the now, then you will free yourself from pain connected to the past or future.
    Raymond Reggie Scholarship
    Part of my interest in the ability to work in the field of business as an automotive technician is my ability to keep a regimental and consistent schedule that is essential for the greatest efficiency I can bring to the workplace. This is especially in the matter of running a franchise shop by the long term or have plans on doing so for a good business profit. Franchises are considered to have a higher rate of success compared to independently-owned businesses, and come with the comfort of ongoing support from a big-name brand. But, is it right for my type of mechanical capital. As for the case of searching for the right position in my marketing needs, being a franchisee for one of the industry giants that lead the automotive industry can be a profitable opportunity, and a great lead in the business and marketing feature that follow about with it. For the advantages the the industry brings comes the obstacles it presents as well. Everything comes at a cost. A disadvantage of a franchise is that you are, obviously, paying for that winning formula. Car dealership franchisees not only have to pay upfront for the location but are also required to pay a franchise fee, as well as royalties equivalent to a percentage of overall sales. This can be discouraging when having to share your profits with an invisible partner. However, the potential revenue of selling a trusted brand name can outweigh those costs. The automotive franchise industry has the highest average pre-taxed income compared to other franchise sectors, earning approximately $106,500. Even more, franchises typically come with the added benefit of a servicing department which can drive profits substantially. The average car dealership markup per car is only two to five percent, so most car dealerships rely mainly on their servicing department to drive cash flow. However, with being the Automotive Service Manager of the shop comes with the ordeals one must undergo as a result. Before pursuing a job as an automotive service manager, it helps to know exactly what they do. While an individual’s duties might vary depending on the shop or dealership they work at, goals generally remain the same across the board. Automotive service managers play a very important role at a dealership or body shop. They are responsible for overseeing the entire service department, ensuring it is profitable and running smoothly. Some of their duties can include but are not limited to Hiring, training, and managing employees, Preparing an annual operating budget, Keeping a record of accounts and financial information, focusing on customer retention by building relationships, managing and controlling costs, keeping track of service and inventory records, Ordering parts and supplies as needed, forecasting goals and objectives for the department, Implementing a marketing plan to promote business, Maintaining relations with executives and factory representatives, Contacting clients regarding the status of vehicles, Overseeing post-repair services. These are just a few examples of tasks an automotive service manager performs. It’s a job that requires a lot of responsibility and organization – a significant role ensuring the service department is successful, as well as what to expect from a business motto. In conclusion, be ready to negotiate and stand up for yourself. I remember I offered this one guy a settlement, and he accepted it right off the bat. After all, your competition is everything else your prospect could conceivably spend their money on. But being a standard beginner technician, I would never do that. So just remember, it's your car, you paid all those premiums, and you deserve whatever your car is really worth.
    Breanden Beneschott Ambitious Entrepreneurs Scholarship
    Overcoming adversity consists of trials and tribulations within entrepreneurship. However, viewing adversity can come as something that can help you or hinder you Adversity is one of the most powerful forces in life and many times, it is the situations in life that give us the most pain that leads to the most significant growth. Without these obstacles, a plant’s root system will struggle to grow deeply. Those deep roots are necessary to help them survive the next drought or wind storm. Similarly, in humans, I believe that adversity does not build character but actually reveals it. Hard times can bring out your best qualities or it can reveal your cracks that can use some repair. Ultimately, overcoming adversity is a wonderful tool for self-improvement. How you chose to deal with adversity depends on your mindset. In life, things can either happen to you or for you. Such a case has happened in my automotive shop one time whilst I was working. My Employer Salisburg sought employee feedback during his rebuild seven years ago, and now has a staff that’s immensely motivated as a result. “The guys are more company-minded, giving us a better quality of service,” he says. “We see it by what happens down the road. People say, ‘You must come to Dave’s.’” Nowadays, the Salisbury family? Dave gets a sizable assist from daughter Charlotte Senn? oversees a shop that’s built to last. The shop, which has had profits stabilize in recent years, was increased in size seven years ago, up to 12,000 square feet, and Wierer is appreciative of all its modern amenities, like heated floors. “I obviously thank God for what we’ve got,” says Wierer, who also oversees Dave’s Auto Resale. “We have a place better than we deserve. … We can move forward with this, for the future.” Let’s make one thing clear in conclusion. Life is a continuous succession of both small and large problems. They never end. No sooner do you get control of one situation when you are hit by another. Often it can feel like life is a process of “two steps forward and one step back.” When you become a great success, you simply exchange one type of problem for another. Before, you had small problems with limited consequences; now you have large problems with enormous consequences. No matter how smart and clever and careful you are, you’ll face life struggles, challenges, difficulties, and sometimes heartbreaking adversities every day, week and month of your life. One of your main jobs in life is to become an expert in dealing with adversity, to triumph over difficulty, to rise above the challenges of day-to-day life. Keep your thoughts on where you’re going, not on where you’ve been. Keep your eyes on your goals, and keep your chin tilted upward toward the sunshine.

    Bold Bucket List Scholarship
    Most of the men like me lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them. Such was the case when I asked about my psychologist friend some tiny number of which I read about goals within his bucket list. Seeing an accumulation of ambitious planning provides some insight into what many people want to do in order to highlight their lives: travel and see the wonders of the world; have an adventure like white-water rafting; learn a foreign language; meet a celebrity; become rich; or accomplish something really demanding such as running a marathon. As to any pursuer of a fulfilling life, accomplishment comes as the long-term fulfillment to an already stoic day. Sufficient anecdotal evidence exists supporting the link between bucket lists and goal achievement; however, it was not until only recently that research backs up this claim, as well. Perhaps more importantly, keeping a bucket list may also translate into a more fulfilling life. First & foremost, a bucket list helps to increase motivation – an essential attribute for the accomplishment of a goal. The correlation between goals and motivation is so strong, that many psychologists include the words “goal” and “motivation” interchangeably when defining one or the other. Hundreds of studies have discovered a direct link between goal setting and achievement. These studies span goal-setting and academics; goal-setting and health; goal-setting and recreation; goal-setting and money management…and so forth. Bucket lists are helpful in that they’re a way of listening to my inner wisdom. It’s so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day grind, to-do lists, going to work and coming home, doing chores, and the like, you can lose sight of that inner compass. It’s best to let your bucket list reflect your own personality, quirks, and interests.
    Bold Creativity Scholarship
    In the intervals that obstacles begin to present themselves is also the time in which action must be taken to apply some amount of creativity as the subtle balancer of how daily goals can be achieved on a day by day, week by week academic basis. Any amount of creativity such as learning a new skill for a job with a required good work ethic, organization of categories of assignments and sheets from my high school senior year classes, or planning out a scholarships application schedule are few of the many creative promises your mind can bring benefit and opportunity for when such challenges present themselves, as well as for other obstacles that require such a need for creative overhauling. One of the many custom solutions I can adapt to my current economic threshold is a balanced schedule and plan of what I need to get done for the week. Around mainly the weekends is where the time lies, where with each week and each new pint of knowledge is consumed for a better living opportunity, it allows me to gain a step on my scholarships deals, new job payment opportunities, and new organizational methods of keeping ahead on my academic works, and hence keeps me within the exponential route towards evident success, whenever the time may call for it. Creativity remains one of the many subtly overlooked tools to a seniors need to make tight ends meet. It is one's most profitable and evidentially most beneficial part to keeping efficiency within the hardships of life all at bay, so my primary focus is retained not only on the significant goals of an uncertain future, but towards the goals of what must be done to get there, as for a future automotive technician, creativity and wit are my best tools.
    Bold Study Strategies Scholarship
    For the consecutive majority of my weekday, most of my devoted time is spent on the balance scale of earning my weekly check and attending high school, as well as 2 scholarships each weekday so each week, I can accumulate enough scholarships to pay off a $38K tuition cost right before the weekend so I can make any important ends meet and know what's ahead of me for next week. With such a plethora of long-term progress goals in mind in order to achieve my career in the automotive technician career, having significant time-pacing and study strategizing in mind at the better instant is ultimately what will set you up to a higher standard in a better market for not only a better career, but for the academic success that precedes such. The majority of my time within the weekdays involves pushing through the last semester's of my high school career. As I have made evident of the window of time before my eventual graduation, that most of my devoted time lies in preparing by any means to the adverting obstacles, scholarships, and other quintessential costs that have no other reason than to do no good of me in my current economic situation. Lest, being able to put aside resourceful time, in a balance between maintaining the sufficient funds of a young adult's responsibility and having academic work for a 24-credit diploma, as well as funds for a future trade that I take pride in knowing how it's done can all secede in a tightly packed schedule in ensuring that my long-term planned goals are met within a steady pace within a weeks time. As for my consolation, time within the weekends, the days off, and the days of accomplishment serve only to push me further, like my goals beforehand.
    Next Young Leaders Program Scholarship
    Within the next generations as youth leaders lies a call for you to display your work ethic and moral leadership, Psychological resilience is a key skill for business leaders in any industry. It helps us to face, recover from, and adapt quickly to stressful and difficult situations. The better a leader’s psychological resilience skills are, the more effectively they can tackle stressors, and the better the performance and engagement of their teams. But just how psychological resilience skills enhance leadership can turn the tide to significantly use what I've learned in my high school days and going forward. Leadership scholars have identified a host of approaches to the study of leadership. What are the personal characteristics of leaders? What is the nature of the relation between leaders and followers? Why do we perceive some people to be better leaders than others? What are the circumstances that evoke leadership qualities in people? Can leadership be taught? And so on. The contributions to this book examine these important questions and fall into three categories: conceptions of leadership, factors that influence the effectiveness of leadership, and the consequences and effects of leadership on the leader. All in all, this displays part of a broad spectrum of novel and important approaches to the study of the psychology of leadership. We hope that they are equally useful to those who are or would be leaders and to those who study the topic. As recent events have served to remind us, it is too important a topic to be ignored by psychologists. Given that good leadership depends on constituent cooperation and support, this new psychology of leadership negates the notion that leadership is exclusively a top-down process. In fact, it suggests that to gain credibility among followers, leaders must try to position themselves among the group rather than above it. Locus of control is the belief that people how of how much control they have over their life. Locus of control can be internal or external. Internal locus of control means that individuals think that they control the events in their life. Therefore, they believe that they can change a negative situation or that if they do well at education or in their job, it is the result of their hard work and dedication. This is the desired locus of control, as it makes people feel in control of their life, which tends to result in a higher likelihood of them being satisfied in life. On the other side of the spectrum (or locus) is having an external locus of control. This would be a person who attributes all events to external factors. This person will not take any blame or responsibility for negative situations but are likely to blame others, even if they are of their own creation, and will not acknowledge the direct relationship between hard work and positive exam results. Research indicates that most leaders have an internal locus of control, and that better performance is achieved by workers who have a leader with an internal rather than external locus of control. Lastly, internal leaders were likely to be highly directed and task-oriented in how they communicated with workers under their control.

Teenagers of the which take into no account the consequences of their actions nor their effects. This, taken into account of a high school violence rate and a need for metal detectors and more deputies patrolling the campus, meant only an unnerving atmosphere for anyone who happens to fall victim to petty 'pranks', so as they call it. uncertain intervals as such come with both a trade-off and a cost at any scenario they see given. When you get into a tight place, and everything goes against you till it seems as if you couldn’t hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that’s just the place and time that the tide will. Environments like that call for You to simplistically go on. You set one foot in front of the other, and if a thin voice cries out, somewhere behind you, you pretend not to hear, and keep going. If you have a fixed determination, I do not counsel you to despair. Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but also perseverance. Concludingly, when I have a great and difficult task, something perhaps almost impossible, if I only work a little at a time, every day a little, suddenly the work will finish itself. I'm going to find anybody that’s going to be successful without making a sacrifice and without perseverance in life. For in the end, success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
    Bold Helping Others Scholarship
    When someone usually offers to assist you with something, whether it’s a work project, mowing the lawn or cleaning up the dishes after dinner, it’s easy to instinctively turn them down. Even if you know they’re well-meaning, a person throwing their generosity your way can make you feel uncomfortable, though you might not know why. It’s alright for me to enjoy being independent at most times, but routinely refusing help can leave you feeling exhausted and cause you to drift away from loved ones. Let’s take a look at why accepting help is so hard and explore ways you can start receiving, and even asking for, the help you need. Most people genuinely enjoy lending others a helping hand. It feels good to support the people you care about through acts of kindness. So why is it hard to accept those same acts of kindness yourself? There are a few possible reasons. In reality, though, giving and receiving help is part of the human social experience and doesn’t reflect on your strength or weakness. You may also struggle to accept help if you feel like you don’t deserve it. If you struggle with low self-esteem, you might feel guilty for accepting help or worry about imposing on others. This can cause you to bottle up your feelings and endure problems on your own, rather than ask for the help you need. Finally, you might resist help if you don’t believe you need it. This is common for people struggling with mental problems. A person with depression might justify or deny their experience to avoid seeking help. In these cases, it’s important to listen to the people offering help to gain a realistic perspective. They’re reaching out because they care and because they believe it’s necessary, for sake of helping others.
    Dr. Meme Heineman Scholarship
    My belief as to why I should be awarded this scholarships comes from the significance of psychology as a broad scientific field of it’s own. Psychological research is a lenient and critical tool for successfully navigating our complex world. Without it, we would be forced to rely solely on intuition, other people’s authority, and blind luck. While many of us feel confident in our abilities to decipher and interact with the world around us, history is filled with examples of how very wrong we can be when we fail to recognize the need for evidence in supporting claims. At various times in history, we would have been certain that the sun revolved around a flat earth, that the earth’s continents did not move, and that mental illness was caused by possession. It is through systematic scientific research that we divest ourselves of our preconceived notions and superstitions and gain an objective understanding of ourselves and our world. Parts of said systematic research comes from the form of proper observations when it comes to the field of study. Experimental methods are usually carried out in the laboratory, field and in the natural. The non- experimental methods are as: controlled observation, naturalistic observation, and participant observation. This essay is going to look at one of the experiment method which is; the laboratory experiment which gives the researcher complete control over the experiment, and a non-experimental method which is the naturalistic observation; it involves the researcher in the recording of behaviour in its natural setting. The laboratory experiment, considered to be a quantitative research method, is used very widely as a research tool in psychology. It provides researchers with a good and highest possible level of control over variables. Advantages are: a study can be replicated by other researchers. It is possible to determine the cause and effect relationship between IV and DV, and easier to use technical equipment in a laboratory. Disadvantages are that the results may be affected by experimenter bias where an experimenter’s expectations about the study can affect results and volunteer bias where the participants may be influenced by these expectations. Psychologists say that total control is never possible. Since the laboratory experiment is an artificial situation, results may not be generalised to real life, in psychological terms it is called ecological or external validity. Participants may try to manipulate the results, if they get to know the purposes and demands of the experiment. Psychology allows people to understand more about how the body and mind work together. This knowledge can help with decision-making and avoiding stressful situations. It can help with time management, setting and achieving goals, and living effectively. The science not only allows people to be more successful, but it can also impact their health. It helps many tackle their mental illnesses so that they can continue living their lives. Psychological studies have also aided in drug development and the ability to diagnose various diseases. I can personally testify to the importance of the subject. Even as a coming Automotive Engineer, Psychology has helped me because I have become more determined to do the things I will enjoy and write on the topics that I like. I can understand who I am and look at events on a more positive aspect. Whenever I have a problem, I can handle it better. Down to the choices over the projects I will work on and the way I will handle my time, psychology helps me make better decisions within my life.
    Bold Best Skills Scholarship
    My best known skills that I’ve adapted and that I’m trying to improve is the Automotive Engineering business. An automotive engineer specializes in designing and developing vehicles for public or private use. Their job entails conducting extensive research and analyses, conceptualizing plans with fellow experts, building prototypes and structures, troubleshooting problems, and implementing multiple test procedures to identify how the vehicle operates at different conditions and ensure its quality adheres to standards and regulations. Besides developing new vehicles, an automotive engineer may also modify existing models, which requires them to study the market and consumers' feedback, identify the strengths and weaknesses of existing systems, and coordinate upgrades. My adaptability is also a skill I’m willing to acquire while on the job, as automotive technicians must be able to adapt. This industry is constantly changing, and it’s important for technicians to evolve right alongside it. While it can be easy to get stuck in your ways, the best technicians are flexible and ready to take on any new challenge that comes their way. My trade school vocational programs continues to constantly change. Because of that, our technicians have to be people who can learn something new and adapt in a quick manner. Most technicians will tell you that they are never ‘bored’ in their day-to-day work. This is a fast-paced career, and no two days on the job are alike. Whether you’re meeting with a customer, working on a repair or diagnosing a vehicle, you will have to adapt to your surroundings and be willing to wear multiple hats at times Holding an incredible work ethic in my heart. Automotive technicians know that their customers are depending on them, so I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty and put in the hard work required to get the job done.
    Bold Nature Matters Scholarship
    Mother Nature is the ultimate inspiration. When you’re feeling sluggish, simply walking outside and getting fresh air can do wonders for your mood and outlook. Often, nature’s beauty can often take both your words and breath away. As for me, nature is not a place to visit, for it is home to me. As I tread in every walk with nature, I commonly receive far more than what I seek, as nature is an ever growing study of discovery and wonder that keeps you guessing at every turn, every cliff, river bank, tree, and whatever else the light touches. The tree which moves some to tears of joy is, in the eyes of others, only a green thing which stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity, and by these I shall not regulate my propositions. And some see no nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself. The melancholy that presents itself in the basking of nature can be at best beneficial and psychologically soothing at rest, basking in its sunshine. Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. For my wish is to simplistically keep my place, living quietly in the corner of nature. Concluding bringing solace to all my troubles, nature every morning for me was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity and innocence with Nature herself fresh air is as good for the mind as for the body. Nature always seems trying to talk to us as if she had some great secret to tell. And so she has.
    Bold Motivation Scholarship
    The evident drive to pursue my accustomed goals on a daily scheduled basis has allowed me to keep a positive outlook for being motivated and being able to accomplish my important deeds of the day. Several internal factors accommodate to such a degree, as in most instances, being able to adjust and pace myself appropriately so that the room to focus on other significant assignments and matters is present has overall been beneficiary to staying efficient and on top of my work, whatever obstacle presents itself as such. Amongst many diverse factors that help situate me at home, school, and work, motivational strategies account for a plethora of more beneficial outcomes for my day to day grind than you would anticipate. For a case such as work that’s evident, To some extent, a high level of employee motivation is derived from effective management practices. To develop motivated employees, a manager must treat people as individuals, empower workers, provide an effective reward system, redesign jobs, and create a flexible workplace. This last point is worth noting. With the widely developing trend toward empowerment in American industry, many employees and employers are beginning to view traditional pay systems as inadequate. In a traditional system, people are paid according to the positions they hold, not the contributions they make. As organizations adopt approaches built upon teams, customer satisfaction, and empowerment, workers need to be paid differently. Many companies have already responded by designing numerous pay plans, which base rewards on skill levels. In conclusion, these type of satisfactory rewards demonstrate to employees that their behavior is appropriate and should be repeated. If employees don't feel that their work is valued, their motivation will decline. Overall, for the exemplification, a highly motivated person can work hard at a job; an unmotivated person does not.
    Bold Know Yourself Scholarship
    The undiscovered self, as covered by one of my most influential and motivational psychologists of the turn of the century. His most unique and influential contribution to psychiatry and neurosis analysis is, however, the division of the collective unconsciousness into sub-types of personalities; namely, ancestral imagery and archetypes. The latter is a discussion reserved for another time, as ‘The Undiscovered Self’ is not so much a guide to his work in the field of psychology as it is a simple plea to the modern man to empower himself through self-knowledge to individualize by integrating the conscious (light) self with the unconscious (shadow) self. Mr. Jung elaborates that the modern man, who focuses heavily on scientific rationalism and considers it “the only intellectual and spiritual authority,” has lost sight of the unconscious. This great split between the conscious and unconscious parts seems to have resulted in a rise in general neuroticism. He claims that, unlike the past where religion played a greater role, there is now a lack of an attitude to our external conditions (politics, materialism, etc) with a standpoint outside of it which allows us to exercise judgement and the power of decision – religion served as a counterpoise to the external developments of the “World and its reason.” From this, Religion paves a way for me to get in touch with my unconscious through what we commonly call “spiritual experiences,” however, modern religion which Jung annotates as “creeds” is not too differing from the authoritarian State; we are very aware of the present state of the Church and in the East, of Islam, where either for political gains or expediency of practice, religious orientation has turned into a mass movement where external power is employed, the element of fear, to compel people to remain obedient to their ideologies.
    Uniball's Skilled Trades Scholarship
    My name is Shane. And I am planning to pursue one of my favorite career's as a skilled trade Automotive Technician at Universal Technical Institute. I became passionate about my soon to be career because of conjuncting reasons. I had an early drive for cars early watching NASCAR occasionally early on my childhood. My parents were mainly delivery drivers in order to hold in our basic income for our families standard living, so learning the basics of car maintenance came easy with them and then for me as time came along and I came to learn basic maintenance and grew to like being able to fix what needed to be fixed and done with. That drive in and of itself is the main reason I came to grow an interest on working on cars and enjoying how to fix them, as I take leisure in both learning and working, for whenever the questions reach the front of my mind, being able to gain useful knowledge of what I need to know has been a growing skill of mine I tend to work on more when the time comes for my eventual employment for an apprenticeship. The time I overcame adversity came in the form of a series of unfortunate events near my birth. I had much to look forward to when I lost my father from a heart attack at only age 4. No in depth knowledge of what I could enjoy from his perspective of the world, for the only adversity came when my mother could not uphold the necessary income to raise 3 children in the same home. My brother went to his father's home while me and my sister were held up in the foster care system. The combination of subtle service pay and constant neglectful behaviors that came from the adults meant that people back in the day who were broke from the financial crash of 2008 could make a tidy profit off intricately neglecting the children they are being payed to raise and getting away with this. This in turn sent me through 6 neglectful houses all to where I was left in the hospital with pneumonia at only 4 years of age. Because of the trauma of the past, I was not able to gain the trust of likeminded people my age, and people I would have liked to known. A problem I work towards keeping controlled in my good future. These days, a scene from an automotive service bay is somewhat like a scene from an operating room. A group of highly skilled men and women meticulously pour over their work, using sophisticated instruments and finely tuned minds to diagnose and repair the complex workings of the intricately constructed metaphorical organs of the car. Much like cell phones are now capable of doing more than making calls, cars can do much more than drive and park. In recent years, the automotive industry has worked hand-in-hand with major technology companies in order to deliver the most advanced, safest and most comfortable vehicles out there. Cars are becoming large smart devices with advanced emergency braking capabilities, mapping technology for autonomous driving, better fuel efficiency and cars as a service as a form of transportation. There are no shortages of ways in which cars are improving the lives of drivers and other vehicles around them in terms of safety, getting from point A to point B with less of a hassle and entertaining us throughout the process. In the coming years, the automotive industry is expected to progress even further, taking us one step further evermore.
    Bold Legacy Scholarship
    I feel as if my legacy is no grand one, but rather a legacy in which I'll be granted through inner wit and strength, for as Winston Churchill, one of the most profound political figures of the 20th century states, "strength is granted to us all when we are needed to serve great causes". Victory, in spite of all terror, in spite of all obstacles, and in spite of all hardships, can lead to definite survival in knowing how to go through. This type of mindset lingers when it comes to all the equipment, parts, and terms that I have for my eventual job as an automotive technician. However, a certain mindset must be adopted for me to endure such ambitious goals. For me, I like to make a shaping of my legacy as a creature adapting to a new environment, a new feature of obstacles and conditions will present themselves and likely won't go away any time soon. The only way to counteract with obstacles instead of avoiding them, for me, is to face them yourself. Any and all methods of overcoming the necessary obstacles that you happen to atone for will find you to be on a higher foundational ground. Any more info I can gather on parts terminology, more types of tools, and more types of organizational setup will ultimately land me the upper edge in finding a career as an automotive technician. Concludingly, It is important to not turn the superior eye of critical passivity upon barren efforts that you have little chance in achieving. For in the end, we must not be ambitious. Never give in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in to the golden rule of maintaining my potential career, never give in except to convictions of honor and sense.
    Bold Wisdom Scholarship
    One sentence that I would share with the world would be "is this all there is?" Whenever I accomplish anything, both beneficially large and pleasurably small, I'm always offered that lingering emptiness, and I always take it. It usually arrives shortly after the fireworks dissipate and the confetti drops, and the noise of celebration all fades and I'm left alone. The question monuments itself louder, and all of the accolades I could possibly earn shrink in the face of that one sentence, that yes, this is all there is. Just a series of goals and accomplishments and failures and breaks, and lucky mistakes. That's life. Nothing in particular will fill that empty, cold void. It makes you just want to break further from it all and drift further into a most purely hedonic existence, a pure savoring of the present as is. Wouldn't that be nice to wake up fully content with where you're heading or who you are? I'm quite envious of my cat for this particular reason. But it soon becomes painfully apparent that such a life is exponentially outside of such capacities of an individual socialized into a system that is reliant on our profitable struggle towards finding meaning and identity. For example, an entire industry is based purely around self-help books and cultural excrement just to give us that innocent suggestive spark that tells me to find myself and put in the work. Likewise, concludingly, maybe this futile urge to become something, to make something out of our lives is the fuel that brought us here. Look at all of the great works of art and advancements in technology that came about from this one tumultuous urge. "Even if we don't feel satisfied, surely we're contributing in some larger way, right?" Sometimes, it's still not enough.
    Bold Happiness Scholarship
    Freud defines happiness as the fulfillment of man’s instincts — his drives, but he also says that civilization suppresses man’s drives. Man gains protection and security, which afford him the “happiness of quietness,” the happiness that is merely freedom from pain, but he is barred from fulfilling his aggressive and erotic instincts. According to Freud, civilization demands, for examples, that a man marry and sleep with only one woman, whereas his erotic nature would have him satiate his sexual desires with anyone he pleases. Freud does also say, however, that there is not any one source of happiness. And because of this, being part of a civilization does not eliminate a man’s chance for all happiness. What seems to be the case instead is that while living a primal life (outside of civilization), a man might be consistently happy, although chances are great that due to being unprotected, he might also be miserable. Within a civilization, however, man is more likely to escape misery and, while he may not experience a constant state of happiness, the happiness that he does experience will be augmented by his having been without it for a time. As for Christianity — again, Freud remarks that the fullness of happiness cannot come from any one thing, at least not within a civilization where man’s instincts cannot be completely fulfilled. This is where Christianity fails, he believes, because it declares that the only source of true, lasting happiness is in God. When the Christian pursuing God does not find his desires met, Freud counts that as a failed path to happiness. The nonreligious man, he says, is then free to pursue another path, but the Christian is left to resign himself to the idea that it must not be God’s will for him to be happy.
    Bold Art Scholarship
    Throughout his argument against aesthetics, Heidegger strongly states he believes in the true “work of art” and believes that this aesthetic approach goes against this. One artist that Heidegger particularly discusses is Vincent Van Gogh. He uses works of art by Van Gogh in order to give more power to his argument. Through works of art such as Van Gogh’s "Revealing the truth", Heidegger makes a distinction between artwork and things. In order to truly analyze the culture of another, he explains how it is essential for the viewer to question what is being depicted in the work and what the purpose may be. Heidegger describes art as a whole through the philosophies of existence and truth. Heidegger is stating that influential works of art have a great role in instituting principles in a way that is beneficial to the community around it as it guides their understanding and their beliefs of the world around them. Because Heidegger does not agree with the creations of modern times, he does not agree with the term aesthetics. He mentions how Kant used the term aesthetics in Critique of Judgment. Heidegger explains how the Greeks first generated the word. Aesthetics deals with the senses and does not deal with the mind and knowledge. It is the opposite of what truth would be. Heidegger explains how this is an issue as it is not a way to search for the truth in something. Our minds, unlike our senses, search to understand and find truth. Art no longer counts for us as the highest manner in which truth obtains existence for itself…in all these relationships art is and remains for us, on the side of its highest vocation, something past”. He wants to believe that someday the distinctive truth that manifests in art could return.
    Bold Music Scholarship
    This was the last song Jim Morrison recorded before his death in 1971. The song depicts Morrison's own experience hitchhiking as young adult and life in the eyes of Morrison. "The Storm" describes the turbulent chaotic world we live in, and in Morrison's eyes we are "The Riders" who ride restlessly along. When he says "there's a killer on the road" he means to talk about all the bad that we as humans can engage in and that by giving "them" a ride we are endangering those around us. "Into this world we are thrown like a dog without a bone" refers to how we start with seemingly nothing, and how we must ride on through the storm of life in order to find what we desire. Since this was Jim Morrison's last recorded album before taking hiatus in France, I believe the lines "girl you gotta love your man... girl you gotta love your man" were largely about Pam Courson, Jim's girl at the time. I believe he is asking that Pam be there for him in their own journey along the fray of "The Storm". All together the song is almost like Jim's way of passing on a very lasting message. The last "riders on the storm" is somewhat whispered like Jim is literally disappearing into the storm as though to once again to resume his own ride amongst tumult of our world. As for the inspirational drive to keep moving forward, this song I believe is the key foundation to musical inspiration that captures my train of thought, as it is a metaphorical gospel of the bound reality of those under its defects, and those who wish to make the tread across "the storm" to render some form of accomplishment possible; my keys to live ambitiously blessed.
    Bold Books Scholarship
    In the middle of the 20th century, George Orwell frightened the world with the pessimistic forecast he elaborated in 1984. Since this year is far behind us, the novel may seem outdated regarding the threats and challenges we face today. Orwell, inspired by the events in the Cold War, presented a cruel type of totalitarian society, inspired by the Soviet Union under the rule of Stalin. Yet, the ubiquitous character of the Big Brother denies the idea that Orwell's vision was limited to the events he witnessed. Over twenty years after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Big Brother and his philosophy of governance remain a typical example of the protagonists of power in the world. Orwell's predictions for the future, defined by a boot stamping on a human face, were enough to scare both misanthropic pessimists and idealistic optimists. 1984 is a dystopian novel in its essence, but to me, Orwell was an impeccable realist. The book is so convincing in the fact that this kind of reality is possible for the future of our society, that the writer had to be deeply convinced in its probability. As a touchstone for our culture, 1984 still is a warning alarm that reminds us how things are about to get worse. We survived the bloodiest century in human history, although we still haven't come to the final nuclear annihilation predicted by Orwell. One reading of this book was enough for me to understand that although this writer was inspired by the Soviet society, his vision can be applied to any government, in any period of history. Even his goals – to enslave the citizens and to keep them frightened and threatened by constant wars, existential crises and continuous brainwashing – are easily applicable in today's governmental systems, and in people.

    This is Winston, My 14-year-old West Highland Terrier Lhasa Apso mix. He occasionally will roll around on the carpet and bark at the sandhill cranes flying by until I let him out to chase them, as I find it amusing for him to have short legs and chase birds, to where you would think he'd be a sausage dog. However few benefits and tricks this dog offers, I would say Winston has been a very supportive companion in my family in the times we have gone through and hope to hold ourselves together with our better companions in the future.
    Bold Acts of Service Scholarship
    On average, when people think about community service, they assume that volunteering is just ‘hours we need to be able to graduate’ and that is it. Community service is more than just hours; community service is based on the acts performed by someone with the purpose of helping or bringing benefits to his or her community. People frequently compare community service as a punishment since it is often offered to small-time offenders as an alternative to fines or jail time. However, community service is the vital force to many communities since they depend on the service made by the volunteers. Volunteering in your community helps solve many dilemmas in your community that descend through the eyes of government and social agencies (Everything you ever wanted to know about volunteering). Discussing about volunteering to teenagers should be the first step for a better life, since teenagers are the future of tomorrow, and they will leave a mark from yesterday. Volunteering has been such an important matter, that schools in many countries around the world established that 12th grade students will need certain hours of community service in order to graduate. But the frequent answers all the schools are getting are “Why do I need to volunteer? I have better things to do!” What people are forgetting is that each one of them is part of a community, a community that is not perfect and that the government sometimes forgets about their problems or needs, because obviously the government needs to take care of other things that require more attention. People are not only helping others, but they are also helping themselves. Volunteering is not a new subject now, but people did not perceive it before because as time goes by, volunteering is becoming more popular since each year more people volunteer.
    Bold Listening Scholarship
    Listening has become an important key factor in how individuals learn from daily experiences that they want to tune out. However, most individuals are not keen to their hearing senses and choose to resort to either learning through another method to not even having the urge to listen at all. Many individuals have different ways of being able to receive information. However, listening still remains as a precise, more accurate way of retaining the information from a person knowledgeable to such a degree. Maintaining a dialogue capable of guaranteeing productivity without harming the team’s morale is a great challenge. Everyone on the team is a unique individual, and there is no ready-made recipe to satisfy everyone. The solution is to exercise active listening, the foundation of efficient communication and an indispensable tool for those who want to build good relationships in their work environment. In a work environment, we are often surrounded by distractions, while our minds are focused on solving problems. The scenario makes efficient communication difficult, and as a result, we end up losing valuable suggestions brought by colleagues and collaborators. Active listening allows capturing these ideas and reflecting on them, favoring a process of continuous improvement in the organization. It is based on the principle that everyone in a company can contribute proposals on how to do their job better. Many companies even work the technique in their Kaizen cycles, method and philosophy capable of driving continuous improvement, defining active listening sessions where time without distractions is dedicated to employee suggestions. In conclusion, understanding and adapting an active listener mindset can be beneficial to both yourself, your peers, friends, family, and co-workers alike for effective communicative needs, as this stands as an important factor to being able to verbally succeed in the business world at best.
    Bold Passion Scholarship
    Part of the reason to being passionate about having scheduled intervals to get scholarships done is the ability to be able to pursue my goal of working in the automotive engineering business, as I believe that because I have a passion about said goals, I will have a planned format to help meet those goals as a result. To be able to organize and adapt the scholarships needed for college and to be able to get them done and over within a couple of hours at a time is a method I am passionate about adapting to my automotive engineering needs for trade school. Part of what comes with working in the automotive industry is to have the necessary equipment, gear, diagnostics, and proper organization to be able to land and achieve a good profit for you and or your business. To have a slight indicative motivation to be able to pursue what you believe is best for proper work efficiency is a factor that every new career employee should have in mind. If you're always good at something, never do it for free, as I always believe that work ethic is something everyone can strive for. If employers came to realize how passionate new employees can be for their newfound career, they'd take the time to work side by side with them to see what's best for them or how they can work more effectively. This is the belief that passion can create the best work ethic within individuals if employers utilize it for the betterment of their work condition, among other aspects. Overall, passion and motivation has become a driving force for most of the career employed individuals looking to seek opportunities from it. Simplistically, it is how I am able to stick to engineering as a passion.

    Change can often be a difficult thing for everyone to accept. No matter how big or small, sadly many of us fear it. The worry in change can be seen evidently in that friend unsure of his future after high school, or that family member who stumbles when asked what they would like to eat, only to order the same thing they have ordered the last 10 times. From moving to another city, to ordering a different meal at your favorite restaurant, everyone will have that important date with change and its impact. The difference is in how each person decides to handle it. Some like to walk her to the door and give her a kiss goodnight, some even refuse to accept it’s happening, and some don’t even show up. Maybe it is a new job, or the promise of seeing old friends. Moving is a perfect example of how pain and change can equal gain. Although difficult to accept, sometimes embracing the odd variation can be rewarding. As a young boy, friends are made quickly, generally without any thought. Those friends you made in elementary are still your friends when you first enter into high school. But slowly they drift off into the abyss, slipping into with different cliques and before you know it, you are put on the backburner. You feel forced, worried and are fairly sure that rear-ending a grads car will not work. This is yet another perfect example of change for impact by impact, that anyone that’s ever been to high school has probably faced. Accepting this sort of adjustment will teach you new skills, and a lot about yourself. Having a future impact can be hard or easy, Change is simply a tool; it is you who decides what to make with it.

    Regardless of how amazing modern medical technology appears to be, it will never be able to save you from the sufferings caused by an unhealthy way of life. Rather than seeking a sophisticated therapeutic solution for every problem, it is preferable to live in such a way that you are rarely ill. An ounce of prevention is considerably superior to a pound of therapy. Previously, people had to use their physical bodies over the course of their normal employment. Today, however, someone may get up, drive to work in a car, then plop down, get up to drive home in the vehicle, and then plunk down again for the rest of the day. There is no true pain in such a daily living. This genuine inactivity is one of the primary motivations for a wide range of illnesses. Sport, running, walking, and other activities should be added to our lives if our regular jobs do not need us to work hard. This may appear obvious, yet many people stay awake until late at night, when their bodies are telling them that it is time to sleep. Yoga and Ayurvedic experts agree that it is better to sleep at night and stay active during the day. Individuals, for example, understudies, will use espresso and energizers to focus till much later. Others encourage people to be active in the evenings and sleep throughout the day. While we can accomplish this, it has a detrimental impact on our overall well-being. According to medical experts, this type of unnatural living is one of the factors that contribute to the development of cancer and other diseases. If you eat routinely or because of a widespread trouble at a certain time, in any case, when you don't have true hunger, you won't process your meal effectively.

    The dream has no limits. You can dream anything in your life. All dreams shouldn’t come real in your life. But still, we have some productive goals and aims that are highly important to achieve. Today I am talking about my dream to become a pilot. It’s a huge thing and challenging for me. But still, I am hopeful that I will make it. Today I am going to share my dream and my preparation. My dream is to become an Automotive Mechanic. And I had this aim from my childhood. My parents are supportive, and I hope I am going to make it. I know that it is a tough thing to do in life. And very few people succeed to become an automotive engineer let alone have the funds for it. So therefore, I know it will be challenging for me. But I will try my best to successfully pay tuition funds for my Automotive schooling. I am very passionate about Physics and it’s an important subject for aviation learning. I am studying this subject with lots of attention. And I hope after completing my high school I will be able to get myself admitted into an automotive technician college. The process of being a technician will be easier if I can get myself admitted there. My parents are very hopeful and they always tell me that I will make it. And I am a very serious and attentive student. I hope I will make good results so that I can be an Automotive technician one day. This is my dream to become a technician. I am very serious and honest about my dream, ready to work hard as much as possible to make my dream come true. I hope it won’t be hard to make this happen.

    Bold Simple Pleasures Scholarship
    There are countless things that give us pleasure. Most of the time we take them for granted. Waking up to a beautiful sunny day in the middle of a snowy winter can make you smile. Watching Wimbledon with a cup of steaming hot tea and spicy hot samosas on a dark rainy day is one of my favorites. We spend most of our time whining about the things we don’t have, often forgetting to be grateful for the things we do. There are numerous pleasures to be grateful for. The smell of a freshly baked cake on a dreary evening, the smile on your moms face when you get her flowers, the sound of a baby laughing, a glimpse of the girl you like in the train, catching the elevator when it’s almost closed, making it through the yellow light at the signal, reaching out into your pocket to find a $500 note you had forgotten was there- it’s not like you got a gift but you definitely are richer than you thought you were before you found it. Look around you and begin to appreciate the things that make you happy. It could be your favorite song being played at a concert, or the comforting warmth of mildly scented clothes just out of the drier. Once you start counting, you will be amazed by how blessed you are and how many simple pleasures you have been given. Whisper a quick thanks to the Lord and keep counting, for we will have a guide on the way through.
    Bold Giving Scholarship
    Giving is essential to motivate and feel gleeful of the friends and family that they have so as to secure their friendship indefinitely. When someone is giving, they are reaching out their emotional spirit in an event in which the only right thing to do is to give back in exchange for happiness. Many people say selflessness is the key to happiness, but does anyone know what it really is? Selflessness is heavily emphasized in many religions, movies, and literature. Many people aspire to be selfless because it is a trait idolized by so many people. No one ever truly describes what it means to be selfless. Selflessness is a hard-to-reach goal, a valued trait, and it can be defined many ways. Ultimately, it is something you have to decide what it is by yourself. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of selfless is having no concern for oneself. That doesn’t exactly describe a view of selflessness. First off, you could have no concern for yourself or anyone around you. Or maybe you only care about your pet. Also, that seems like a high goal to aim for. There are many debates about whether someone can be selfless. Some people say there are no selfless acts because people only have their own interests in mind. Others say that there are people that are entirely selfless. No one, no matter how altruistic, is entirely concerned with everyone but themselves. It is even possible that you are trying to be selfless for a selfish reason like trying to fully engage your religion so you reach a better connection with your higher power, or people with high status may want to seem giving so they receive praise, so as such, there are many acts of selflessness that prove you are of good character
    Ashley M. Lopez Foster Care Scholarship
    Ever since the age of 4, mechanical engineering has been a past thought that has always seemed to be a bizarre art of its own craft. I believe part of that reason came when I would be occasionally taken to car shows since my father had a thing for them. A mystic art I would have yet to experience until the child protective services came knocking on the door when my family couldn't have the resources and support needed when he died. Instead of being a beneficiary and stopping to assist in the support needed, more of a problem was created when cps came to take me away when I was only 4, and here began the tolls that the foster care system took on my overall well-being at such an age. Of course, with the mental strains on my Mother, I had wondered what she was going through when I was in that metaphorical asylum, so I'm pondering the best I can on what I can only remember. I believe I was taken to 3 homes. One home was on a hill side near the offside of the entrance to a trailer park community, a little mobile home off the side. I remember growing so ill of that house and conditions that I developed pneumonia and had to be on some special oxygen tank and inhaler for a couple of days. The owner would refuse to let me out for days while he had a "busy" schedule at hand. As not only that but food was for most days refused to where I grew too ill, cps found out, and I was sent to another home. The 2nd was an apartment room devoid of barely any furniture and maybe a couch. Some black woman was the caretaker, as God knows I barely got to see her spouse often. The limited amount of food I received in that apartment alone made my situation only worse to where I had to be hospitalized for weighing only in the 50-pound range and having pneumonia, it got to where my own Mother had heard about the news and wanted to sneak food to me and my sister whilst She was in there at that time, because the foster care system still wouldn't want to give me back to my Mother before me. So there waited months of miserable hospitalization until I went to my final random foster home, some metal and wood cabin in the rural community, Not a lot came with me clothes-wise, since weight problems had already been an issue, the room smelt of cigarettes and sometimes rotten food at some points to where sleeping became a chore to do for the 2 some-odd months that I was there before I was finally returned to my mother in her custody before me. The pains and suffering that resulted from the negligent awareness and treatment form both the foster care system and the parents hired to only be paid by them has introduced this money mentality to where "If they only keep me for longer, the system will give them their money". and that is where you get cases of negligence, and sometimes just conditional abuse that happens in these households for kids of an uncertain future. It is a pain to talk about this but let alone remember it. But if I ever had the chance to take my reward for the future of my career, I might as well lift off a burden of the past to let me know that I'm never the only one who cares about this.
    Studyist Education Equity Scholarship
    Education inequity has overall forced a stupor among many students who don’t meet the standards that the classroom forces upon them, and as a result of such, these students are put into an environment where favoritism and a lack of resources to assist can possibly be the burden that shuts them off and forces them behind to be on a par level now with the metaphorical swarm of undergraduate nobody’s they so wanted to flee from in the first place. This discriminatory position that the student has no right to be in has now taken a lifelong toll on his progression and abilities to keep up with the competition for lack of a better word. Achievements such as confidence towards passing a semester test, for simple terms, and having the resources to make sure you receive your scholarships are keen to a students part in what he wants to do for the future. To be put in an inequitable situation where the lack of what you know or what you can know is now decided by a governmental-style schooling body will lead many to be forced to resort to their own limited resources at hand with no assistance to look forward to. It is the bias that has come that results in the decision making that can possibly plummet a students financial resources down the drain when you limit him from what you don’t know, for lack of a better word. For it is why inequity can also be judgement.
