Universal theme: Confidence, have confidence and accomplish anything and everything you can.
"Of Mice and Men"
"Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys." "With us it ain't like that. We got a future. We got someone to talk to that gives a damn about us." Lennie broke in. "But not us! An' why? Because... because I got you to look after me, and you got me to look after you, and that's why."
This is an example of how Lennie shows confidence with where they are going in their lives. Steinbeck showed this to represent how much confidence they have in each other. Steinbeck is writing this because anybody can have confidence in themselves, all they gotta do is put their mind to it.
"He's a good skinner. He can easel grain bags, drive a cultivator. He can do anything. Just give him a try."
This represents confidence because George said good things about George and he said them with confidence. When he showed confidence in the way he spoke it showed how all the things he was saying that were about Lennie were true. It made the boss think he was a really good worker.
"I'm going to teach you to walk Doodle" "Why" he said. "So I won't have to haul you around all the time" "I can't walk brother" he said. "Who says so?" I demanded. "Mama, the doctor-everybody." "Oh, you can walk," I said, and took him by the arms and stood him up. He collapsed onto the grass like a half filled flower sack. It was like he had no bones in his legs. "Don't he me brother," He warned. "Shut up I ain't gonna hurt you. I'm going to teach you to walk." I heaved him up again, and again he collapsed. This time he did not lift his face up out of the rubber grass. "I just can't do it. Let's make honeysuckle wreaths." "Oh yes you can, Doodle," I said "all you got to do is try. Now come on" I hauled him up once more."
This is a representation of how in the scarlet ibis doodles brother had confidence and Doodle did not. Doodle said that he could not walk. The author made this courageous because he wanted Doodle to be confident and want to walk. He wants him to learn and he is encouraging Doodle to learn to walk.
What is the impact?
The impact is that you need to be courageous. For example if you are having a presesntation in front of the class and your scared. Then you will probably be speaking low and that's no good because you will get a bad grade if so. You need to be courageous and speak up have good posture and be confident. Why is this worldwide? This is worldwide because if your in school and are selling chacolated you are not going to ask because you are not confident. Adults are confident when they go in for a job interview because they show their skill in whatever it is they are doing.
Overall I have learned to be confident and courageous. For the next time I speak I speak with confidence and when I go in for a job interview I will ho in confident and show the boss whet I can do. If not then you will get nowhere in life when you are doing almost anything. If you say you can't do it, then your not going to do it. If you have confidence and believe that you can do something and if you put your mind to it, then you are going to get it done.
