Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. it's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.

well what this quote is exactlty trying to say is that if everyone had a chance to do leave something or to have left a mark they would take it and that the failing and stuff to dont worry about its part of the procces of u shapeing up and either u cope with it and leave a mark ur u let its darks walls take u in and do nothing

I agree with this quote because basically Obama is describing how life works and informing people how you have to go through life. In my interpretation of the quote it is being said that you are born into this world then as you grow up you learn many things and there are also things that try to tear you apart but you choose whether to be strong and not let it bother you or not. I think that this quote is empowering because it lifts you up and makes you feel like you can do good in life but for those who are a little weak it can be advice for them.

I think that this quote is trying to say that every person on the earth was made to leave a mark but it is up to them if they want leave one. If a person really wanted to leave a mark on this earth it is going to take a lot of time and effort to do that. if you don't take the time to leave a mark what does that say about your ? It says that you are lazy and that when you pass die no one will know anything of you . because you didn't take the time to leave your mark.

this quote is true because to make a mark on this earth it does take patience and commitment and a lot a failure but like if you dont fail then you dont get to make your mistakes and learn form them.

i think that this is sayin wen u work hard 4 somethin, it wont be easy becuz there is a road with many obstacles ahead of u. failure will be on the road as well and u wont be able 2 avoid it but u cant let it stop u. u can either accept failure or think that u failed and that u wont be able 2 keep going on. if u accept failure it will be easier 2 move on with ur goal bcuz, u mite learn with that failure and it mite lead 2 the success of ur goal. but if u r ashamed that u failed it mite lead 2 another failure but this 1 is bigger its ur goal.

i think this is trying to say that it is not simple to be someone big in the world. because it takes time,dedication,and many more things it is not easy. and you cant just do it in one try you have to keep trying to succeed. and not give up and give it your hardest. even though you may fail a lot of times you must not give up. like when you work hard for something it wont be easy. it has many obstacles to get through and you need to work hard to succeed.

i say this is true because if you want to come out and make your mark in the world you have to go threw a lot and threw that you are going to fail many time but you need to learn from those mistakes and keep on approaching at it and probaably your guoing to fail more but keep on learning and move on untill youcome out with the finished product that gets you noticed in the world and makes a mark to everyone.

I think this means that its easyier when your little because you have a break in life but when you grpw older itstarts to get harder. When your older its going to be hareder its going to be even harder to accomplish your main goals

I agree with Obama because not everyone is famous or important. You have to work hard and be patient. Like most famous sports people they had to work hard to be what they are. An example is Abraham Lincoln. He had to be patient, work hard, and had lots of failure. But he became one of the most famous and one of the best presidents of the U.S. If he would've given up along the way the U.S. wouldn't be this way.

I think what this quote is saying is true becuase i think it is right. it is easier to not make a difference in the wolrd than making a difference. Thats why not many people make differences in the world because it takes work and the majority of the people rather not work hard for something. And for those people who do want to make a difference face failure and give ypu. Thats what i think this quote means.

I think that this quote is true because you do chose weather you want to succeed in life or fail. And not all people succeed in life because people think its hard to do that but its really not hard.All it takes is to have lots of patience and belive in yourself.People that are successful now had pass through alot of bad and good things in their life but they learn from all of their mistakes thats how they became successful.

i think obama is trying to say is that life isnt going to be as easy as u want it to be u have to realy want it and u have to work hard to have a good life and u might have your ups a downs and if life was realy that easy then no 1 in this world would be struggling and poor and stuff like that so i agree wit this quote u have to work hard for watever u want and dont expect no one to just give u any thing u have to go get it and work hard

I agree with this quote because nothing in life is easy. Like this quote says, if it were easy everyone will be famous. But it doesn't work like that. You have to work hard and sacrifice some things to accomplish something. So you think famous people have it easy you're wrong they had to work a lot to thrive to success.

i think the most importannt thing is that everyone leaves their name in stonebut i believe its not. people try so hard to make an impression and stuff they dont realize whats really important but i believe leaving some ssort of impression counts. let the world see you were sumthing in liife and not just a regular somone ur more than just that.

I AGREE WITH THIS QUOTE 100% ONLY BECAUSE THIS IS HOW I FEEL WHEN IM ON THE FIELD ITS LIKE FAILURE ISNT AN OPTION BUT THERE WOULD BE TIMES WHERE YOU WANT TO SUCCEED SO MUCH THAT YOU JUST CANT REACH YOUR GOAL AND SOMETIMES YOUR GOALS ARE SO FAR FROM YOU THAT YOU HAVE TO PUT FORWARD THAT EXTRA AFFORT OR COMMITMENT TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT YOU WANT. LIKE IS SAYS IF SUCCEEDING WAS EASY EVERYONE WILL SUCCEED AND SINCE SOME PEOPLE CANT SUCCEED THEY CHOOSE TO FAIL AND NOT COMMIT AND STICK TO THIER PROMISES. I BELIEVE FAILURE AND BAD EXPIERENCES SHAPE YOU TO BE THE PERSON YOU ARE ITS JUST ON YOU TO OVERCOME THAT AND COME BACK AND GIVE EVERYTHING 10X TIMES HARDER. SO MAKING YOUR MARK IN THIS WORLD ISNT GONNA BE A BIG MARK BUT ITS GONNA MAKE A NDIFFRENCE.!

This quoye is trying to say that only the people with patience, commitment, and the people with the will to succeed will leave a mark when they die. and the people that dont do that and always fail will never ever leave a mark.

I think that this statement means that it is hard to make your mark in the world. It takes to time to make something out of your life. During you your strive to suceed you will encounter obstacles. Everyone does some people learn from it and some people give up. MOst people make something of their lives and they all face challenges and some keep trying and never give up and other just quit. What im trying to say is that it takes time to to accomplish what you want in life.

These quote is trying to say that you can so many things to make the world remember you those things can be good ones or bad ones but most of the people remember you by the good actions that you do. and the best way to make somebody remember you is by been your self, and do the actions with out wanting any recompense or help somebody else. These actions are the ones that you can make the people remember you believe that will not be the hole world but the people that will remember you are going to be the ones that love you and that really will think about you by the actions you did.

I think i know what this quote means. If you want to accomplish ag oal , it isn't a one step process, it take alot of commitment and patience like the quote says. You have to "sweat" for the things you want meaning giving effort.

WELL I GUESS THIS QUOTE IS TRUE BECAUSE IT IS VERY RARE THAT SOMEONE IS JUST MAKES IT IN THE WORLD. WHEN YOU WANT SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO EARN IT JUST DOESNT COME TO YOU. UNLESS YOUR PARENTS ARE MILLIONSAIRES WHEN YOU ARE BORN BUT THAT IS UNLIKELY. SO IF YOU ARE NOT ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO PARENTS ARE MILLIONAIRES THAN YOU HAVE TO WORK FOR WHAT YOU WANT IN LIFE

What this quote is trying to say is if you want to leave a mark in the world then you have patience commitment and getting failure when it come yo way you have to learn that when you fail you have to learn from your fail. This is true cuz when people fail they just quit cuz then think that they cant do it any more but that is not the case you have to learn how to over failure cuz you will fail most of the time. Also it takes patiences because you will fail many time so that means you will need to wait untill the time comes when you dont fail.

-I think this means that everyone has a chance to do anything that they want to, and the might become famous but its a really hard road to do if u want to make a diffence like being an actor or like Dr, Matin Luther King Jr; he left his mark everywhere. It isnt easy because if it was easy, then everywhere would have done their mark by now but this is a world with hard situtions so the world isnt perfect. The real test is whether if ur lazy and be not known, or if ur a hardworker and be known as the best hard worker.

well i think this quote is somewhat true because life is all about having to deal with different struggles and the older u get the harder it gets for you. idk why it iz but it jus iz. and as you grow older in life you cum across more and more tests everyday rather it deals with peer-pressure, drugs, or gangs but if u can choose to stay positive and stay legit with your life then you find the right path then you will be able to leave a mark after you move on in life because you have then made an major accomplishment as a human.

i think that this quote is trying to describe the road to success by talking about leaving a mark on the world. i think if you succeed then you do leave a mark on the world we are in. life is a whinding road and their are always obsticals that try to stop you from accomplishing your goals and from leaving your mark. once you fail at something it is always harder to get back up and triump.

this is exactly how i have been feeling.i mean i hate showing failure and i hate showing that i cant do something.and i really try to avoid ways in failure but if i keep avoiding them how will i ever learn.because i ususally avoid it to not get hurt but sometimes you have to go through things to learn.and not do these things again.

I AGREE WITH THIS QOUTE BECAUSE IT SHOWS HOW IF YOU DO WANT TO MAKE A MARK IT IS HARD BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST. IT TAKES ALOT OF DETERMINATION AND COMMITMENT AND ONE CANT BE SLACKING OFF. I ALSO THINK THAT ITS TRYING TO DESCRIBE THAT YOU'RE THE ONE WHO CHOOSES WHERTHER YOU WNAT TO LEAVE A MARK BECAUSE THERES ALOT OF FAILURE INVOLVED BUT YOU GET THROUGH IT BY LEARNING YOUR MISTAKES AND DO BETTER THE NEXT TIME UNTILL YOUR ABLE TO LEAVE A MARK.

I guess this quote is true because what he is saying is that life comes with obstacles but you have to overcome them. Sometimes you might not always succeed but you have to try your hardest at everything you do. Also that when you are getting older things are going to start to become much harder then what you were use to when you were younger and theirs always something that will try to bring you down but you have to remain strong and also remain strong for those around you because if they see it there going think that its okay not to get back up. I like this quote because I think it sends a good powerful message.

I agree with Obama because you never get something out of nothing. You have to work hard and things may not always work out as planned but thats what should give you the drive to keep going and trying. Alot of people just give up the first time something doesn't go as planned, while others won't let that keep them down. When you do something you should put All of your effort into it, so that if it does at anytime fail, you would be able to pick it right back up because you can't just walk away from something that you put everything you could into.

i think this is trying to say that it is not simple to be someone big in the world. because it takes time,dedication,and many more things it is not easy. and you cant just do it in one try you have to keep trying to succeed. and not give up and give it your hardest. even though you may fail a lot of times you must not give up. like when you work hard for something it wont be easy. it has many obstacles to get through and you need to work hard to succeed.

Obama is describing how life works and informing people how you have to go through life. In my interpretation of the quote it is being said that you are born into this world then as you grow up you learn many things and there are also things that try to tear you apart but you choose whether to be strong and not let it bother you or not. So im saying i agree with this quote.

i think that this is saying when you work hard for something, it wont be easy because there is a road with many obstacles ahead of you. failure will be on the road as well and you wont be able to avoid it but you cant let it stop you. you can either accept failure or think that you failed and that you wont be able to keep going on. if you accept failure it will be easier to move on with your goal because, you mite learn with that failure and it mite lead yo the success of your goal. but if your ashamed that you failed it mite lead to another failure but this one is bigger its your goal.

I AGREE WITH THIS QUOTE 100% ONLY BECAUSE THIS IS HOW I FEEL WHEN IM ON THE FIELD ITS LIKE FAILURE ISNT AN OPTION BUT THERE WOULD BE TIMES WHERE YOU WANT TO SUCCEED SO MUCH THAT YOU JUST CANT REACH YOUR GOAL AND SOMETIMES YOUR GOALS ARE SO FAR FROM YOU THAT YOU HAVE TO PUT FORWARD THAT EXTRA AFFORT OR COMMITMENT TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT YOU WANT. LIKE IS SAYS IF SUCCEEDING WAS EASY EVERYONE WILL SUCCEED AND SINCE SOME PEOPLE CANT SUCCEED THEY CHOOSE TO FAIL AND NOT COMMIT AND STICK TO THIER PROMISES. I BELIEVE FAILURE AND BAD EXPIERENCES SHAPE YOU TO BE THE PERSON YOU ARE ITS JUST ON YOU TO OVERCOME THAT AND COME BACK AND GIVE EVERYTHING 10X TIMES HARDER. SO MAKING YOUR MARK IN THIS WORLD ISNT GONNA BE A BIG MARK BUT ITS GONNA MAKE A NDIFFRENCE

I agree with this quote because basically Obama is describing how life works and informing people how you have to go through life. In my interpretation of the quote it is being said that you are born into this world then as you grow up you learn many things and there are also things that try to tear you apart but you choose whether to be strong and not let it bother you or not. I think that this quote is empowering because it lifts you up and makes you feel like you can do good in life but for those who are a little weak it can be advice for them.

i think that this quote is true because trying to change the world is hard and you just can't change it in a day it takes time to change the world and you might fail at somepoint but if you really want to change the world you won't give up and you will keep on trying to change the world.

Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. it's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.

BARACK OBAMA, speech, Jul. 12, 2006


I think what this statement is trying to say is that if you are trying to achieve something then there is going to be bumps on the road of getting there then if u get a flat tire you must put on a spare tire and keep going no matter what.

I think this is true many people try to make a difference, leave marks but most of them fail. and the ones that dont are awarded . every one has a chance to do it i just think its up to u but alot of it has to do with luck also. it deepends on what u do . many people fail and fall hard ..

I agree with this because what obama is trying to say that ho wlife is and how you can succeed.Or that everyone on this earth have all or try to make a mark on this earth but not everyone has succeeded. Either because they shame you into inaction or that you become a failure because you dont learn from the failures youve had.

Well this quote is very true because to leave your mark it takes alot to do before the mark is set. As the quote said it takes patience, commitment and it also takes your ability to a new level. You challenge yourself to have things that people will remember you by. If you ask yourself, "What if you weren't there the next day? Who would remember you?" If you ask yourself that, it makes you want to leave something for people to remember you by. To do that you must work hard and be committed to what you're about to do. To leave a mark, you must a leave a part of your life.

well this quote is true because with any effort you would not reach what you want in your life, you always got to learn of your failure to know what did you did bad and good. there's no always easy paths for life, you gotta be patient to be someone in life and do whatever to make your hope and success.

this is true. it basically means in order to get what you want, you have to work hard. its not easy to accomplish a goal. it takes days,months,and years to complete it.

This is true because it takes alot of hard work and effort to become someone on this world. In order to be remembered and unique one must stand out and be different.
