The Power of One

The Power of OneBy : Bryce Courtenay

Determination will always keep you going no matter what obstacles may stand in your way.

The Cactuses represent the order and classification that people fall into.

One's soroundings influence who we will become.

The people in our life shape who we are and what we stand for.

There will always be obstacles in our life that we must overcome.

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath Scared to rock the boat and make a mess So I sat quietly, agreed politely I guess that I forgot I had a choice I let you push me past the breaking point I stood for nothing, so I fell for everythingYou held me down, but I got up (hey!) Already brushing off the dust You hear my voice, your hear that sound Like thunder, gonna shake the ground You held me down, but I got up Get ready 'cause I had enough I see it all, I see it nowRead more: Katy Perry - Roar Lyrics | MetroLyrics

Life presents itself with many obstacles and the true challange is to overcome those challanges and come on top.

" I repeated Hoppies complement Ag man, the bigger they are the harder they fall "(242).

" Tt is better to be wrong than simply to follow convention. If you are wrong, no matter, you have learned something and you will grow stronger. " (157).

" Remember always, first with the head and then with the hearth " (102).

Peekay always faced obstacles or opponets that were always bigger than him. Hoppies advice allowed peekay to keep going even when it seemed that there was no solution. Peekay always kept Hoppi in mind and tried to imidate him. He never gave up even when his opponent was much stronger than himself. He was reminded that one's physical apperance is not everything.

The song relates to the theme, because both focus on the idea that they were always being pushed around until they stood up for themselves. Peekay always tried to keep going no matter the sitaution. He would be matched again and again with opponents much bigger than him, but he always tried to keep going. The song shows that anyone can rise up against their opressors if they work hard.

The professor helped peekay realize that he must follow his own path. He should not alllow anybody to tell him that he can not do something. Peekay showed that he really appreciated this advice by not allowing the captain in charge of the boxing squad to persuade him not to fight yet. Although he knew that he was not as big as some of the other kids he worked even harder o make up for this disadvantages, and he did not give up.

Hoppie's advice helped Peekay throought his boxing journey. He was taught that you cannot go rushing into battle without first having a plan. He knew that if he walked bindly into a battle that he would lose, so he always prepared. He also focused on things that were much more important.

The video shows people climing a steep hill. Although, it would be really easy to give the reward outways this chance. Peekay could have allowed his opponents to dominate him, but he always rose up and defied them. He learned skills that would help him presevere in his obstalce. These people running they had to train the same way Peekay trained so he could achieve his goals.

Peekay never gave up and always gave what ever he was doing his best effort. He never allowed obstacles stop him from accomplishing his goals, although there were occsions in which he felt like he should just give up he never did. He found mentors and friends that could help him out such as Hoppie and Dr. Choo. The song related a lot to Pekay, because even though he was pushed around lot but he rose to face his obstacles and he became his own dictator.
