According to the UofT professor of psychology Jordan B. Peterson "life has tremendous amounts hardships, you need to learn to deal with it" which in my opinion is dead on. The reason why I believe this to be true is because as we age our life get more challenging as we take on bigger tasks and when take on these challenges head on sometimes we reject the idea that failure is a possibility. If we don't prepare ourselves mentally then we come at risk of feeling depressed and insufficient which in my opinion happens all the time. What we don't realise is that life was never meant to be easy, and we were born entitled to anything. But in life's challenges it's important to have a different perspective about things. In my case, I remember I was dating a girl towards the end of my victory lap (grade 13). I am a kinesthetic learner but anything outside that realm was uncharted territory i.e. I was the typical burnout, however I always liked planes and wanted to be a commercial airline pilot. One day I got my project which I got an A on. As a joke I told my girlfriend (now ex) that I think I can get into Uni with this mark. Her response changed the way how I studied. She said that “The way you’re doing things I don’t even think you can even make it to collage”. I think that was one of the lower points in my life but I was motivated to work harder and eventually I got accepted into uni.
