Personal Statement : Personal Finance

- For a goal to be the most efficient it can be, it has to be S.M.A.R.T. as Siegel and Yacht (2009) explain in our textbook, Personal Finance. Personal finance is the way we conduct and work with our own household finances and how we make the best of what we have. Goals we make in doing that have to be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely. Let me explain these five individually. We have to make our goals specific which means nothing general such as, "my goal is to succeed in life.” Those kinds of goals won 't work....   [tags: Finance, Investment, Debt, Economics]

After people become mature and independent, they leave the original family where they grow up, and then they build their own family with marriage or not, and married couples or single people will continue to choose if they want to have children or not. After that, the circle continues from generations to generations, and that’s the explanation why humans still exist on this planet. During the period of growing up, every one experiences close relationships and intimacies with parents, relatives, lovers and children....   [tags: Family, Marriage, Interpersonal relationship, Wife]

Personal Explanation Of Personal Immortality

- Personal immortality seems to be a paradox that many people address and distinguish in different ways. Through outlets such as religion, science, or personal belief this topic is often argued and habitually facilitates strong arguments. Weirob and Miller explicitly explain their dualist/physicalist outlooks on personal immortality as they have a conversation at the hospital where Weirob slowly succumbs to her injuries received in a motorcycle accident. As Weirob patiently awaits death, Miller explains how due to Weirobs realist view on life he will not try to “comfort [her] with the prospect of life after death” (Perry, pg....   [tags: Soul, Mind, Immortality, Afterlife]

Personal Statement On Personal Growth

- Introduction I believe that most personal growth comes from surrounding yourself with people who are different, so for my interview, I consulted my Hispanic Male friend, Alberto. I choose him due to the fact that he belonged to a different gender and race than me. I had great anticipation to the responses I would receive from him due to his different identity. In retrospect, I was surprised by my findings and how they related to my teachings and my personal perception.

Even though I want to help people, I chose nursing because I wanted to inspire, to teach, to learn, and to make an impact on my patients, their families and also in society. I will not say nursing was always my first choice, but I ultimately choose nursing because nurses not only care, but they also volunteer despite their busy schedules, are constantly learning, and are always giving back to the community....   [tags: Nursing, Patient, Health, Florence Nightingale]

Personal Statement

- For some students a report card is an accurate reflection of their abilities, aspirations, and future work habits. Many friends of mine have flawless, or near flawless, report cards. Straight A's and weighted GPA's well over 4.0 grace their every progress report, and I am certain they will continue this streak of academic excellence well into the future. For others, C's, D's and fail's are a normal occurrence, and much like the straight A students, I have no doubt that they will continue down this path....   [tags: Personal Experience]

My Personal Feelings of Self Worth

- People’s self-esteem either high or low is shaped by their life experiences. I believe a person’s self-esteem begins to take shape at an early age, with their parents being a major influence. Kind, positive, knowledgeable and caring parents help children create a positive self-image. Parents who do not feel good about themselves or others, sometimes take it out on their childern by belittling them or discouraging them. This leads the child down a path of self-doubt and eventually given the right circumstances a lower self-esteem....   [tags: self-esteem, personal narrative]

- In this paper I offer an explication of John Perry’s dialogue on the problem of personal identity, and my evaluation of the strongest account of personal identity between the body, mind, and soul. In this paper I will argue that the strongest account of personal identity is that a person can be identified by their soul. By having the sameness of soul you will then be able to solve the problem of personal identity. Your soul is the foundation of whom you are and by definition, personal identity means “The persistent and continuous unity of the individual person normally attested by continuity of memory with present consciousness.” And without your soul memory could not exist....   [tags: Soul, Spirit, Mind, Chocolate]
