Nonconformity

"You don't get harmony when everybody sings the same note" -Doug Floyd
Before Miley Cyrus went through the struggles of changing how she acted and her her hair style in 2013. Because no matter comes at you in life you just have just push through it. After she changed Miley had so much confidence and free thought that she did not care what anyone thought of her. Miley said she wanted to change, because she wanted to do her own thing and she told her fans not to be worried about her. She says that she is not on drugs, because drugs are for idiots. She is only doing this for herself and no one else.

Self-Reliance

"Envy is ignorance imitation is suicide". -Ralph Waldo Emerson
After the success of the 2008 album I am Sasha Fierce Beyonce killed her alter ego, but continued to create songs that seek to embolden independence. In the song Single Ladies she explains how it is self-reliance. She explains through out the song her frustration of the emotional up's and downs this man puts her through. Now finally single and independent she puts her hands up and does what she wants to bring peace to herself and transforms into being self-reliant.

Importance of Nature

"The happiest man is he who learns from nature the lesson of worship".-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Bear Grylls uses his military training and daring spirit to demonstrate extreme survival skills. Everything from weathering a thunderstorm on a raft, in the middle of the ocean and escaping down the side of an active volcano, to scavenging and eating insects. It shows the importance of nature by him putting his life on the line to discover and save animals.

Favoring intuition over Reason

"Do not lose hold of your dreams or aspirations. For if you do may still exist but you have ceased to live". -Henry David Thoreau

Simplified Life

"It is not the length of life,but the depth". -Ralph Waldo Emerson
