Three Things Are Necessary, Nature, Study, And Practice

“To become an able and successful man in any profession, three things are necessary, nature, study, and practice” This is a famous quote of an American clergyman, Henry Ward Beecher. I agree that nature, study, and practice are the 3 significant elements of success but additionally, I believe that luck and love are crucial too. Everyone is born with some kind of genius. However, since this ‘innate talent’ is under the veil when young, the ‘lucky’ one who discovers this talent and the one who desperately ‘studies’ and ‘practices’ to develop its talent with support and ‘love’ from its surroundings becomes the true genius.

According to my view of life, constant whipping is necessary to pull out the hidden genius. As I have mentioned before, everyone is born with nature, some kind of genius, but unfortunately not everyone becomes a genius. This is where ‘luck’ plays its role. Everyone has slight genius when young, but it is actually hard to discover it. For instance, I could have had special talent in soccer. But since I didn't have many opportunities to play soccer when young, I missed the chance of becoming a soccer star. Hence, the lucky one, who finds out its talent by chance in the proper age, is the one who has much higher possibility of success. Actually, just because one found its talent, it doesn’t mean that one will be 100% successful and become the champion in that field. This is where ‘practice’ and ‘study’ play their roles. When conferring each man its nature, God didn't guarantee a fully successful life, but only the possibility of one. The one, who fights to death to consummate its undeveloped talent, is the winner. And in that process, I believe that continuous whipping is …show more content…
Thus, I believe that Fletcher’s such way of training is allowable, and it is absolutely what helped Andrew overcome his own limitations and eventually reach the climax.
Another critical character that contributed to Andrew’s success is his father. Andrew’s dad cheered him up all the time, regardless of the outcome. Even when he ran out of the stage after messing up the whole music, his dad gave him a big hug and said, “Let’s go home now.” His dad showed support for Andrew at all times and without this, Andrew couldn’t have made through the harsh times. While having a mean trainer on one side, having a loving supporter on the other side would have been what encouraged him to never give up.
“To become an able and successful man in any profession, five things are necessary, nature, study, practice, luck, and love.” This is my point of view of success. Andrew had intrinsic talent in drumming, was lucky enough to discover such talent, studied and practiced with all his strength and with help from Fletcher, and also received full support and love from his father. Since he satisfied all five matters, he was capable of becoming the winner of his life. God is impartial. Everyone is given the opportunity to live a winning life. Please, live a passionate, blood-boiling life. Please, be the winner of your own

    For example, he always made sure I was getting the best grades in my classes, and proud of any activity I took part in. I can speak for myself, students, and many athletes that my dad has taught them to become a better version of what they already are, he has inspired and gave them the confidence to work for what they really want.

    George was the quintessential example when it came to showing that care is an important part to maintaining a strong team bond. An example of George showed he cared was by driving the freshman from one side of campus to the freshman dorms after practice. This selfless act is just one major way that George showed that great teammates care for other teammates in every aspect of their lives. When you build this personal care, you build a team that cares, and this will lead to great success throughout time. One way I showed care, or tried to at the least, was today after our devastating loss against Saint Francis College.…
