Essay

Destiny is an abstract concept. It can be controlled and not controlled. Good things can come to people naturally or people can obtain good things through their achievements. We should both wait for good things to come and not wait depending on the circumstances.

Good things can come to people when they wait. For example, a person who strives to work hard in college for four years will surely have good results. Through patience, that person experience joy in his or her success. Waiting may take a long time, but good things take time. How can someone get good grades when they do not take the time to study and wait for the result? We can wait for good things to come, but there are times when we can not wait.

A person can shape his or her own destiny by achieving something. For instance, a teen might successfully abstain himself or herself. By doing so, she or he is setting a good start in marriage. Their destiny is controllable. They are making a choice and not simply waiting. Destiny depends on the circumstances.

We should wait for good things to come. Through patience, a person can procure what he or she aims for. There are times when it is possible for someone to manipulate his or her destiny. This is based on the decision a person makes to accomplish his or her goals.

    I'd give this paper a score of 3.

    Read the instructions for the prompt and then read the full description of the score of 3.

    Then read and study what it takes for a 4 and for a 5. Aim for those.

    1. I think they want you to take a stand on one side or the other, maybe not rigidly, but not right down the middle, as your paper reads. Yes, you can see both sides,but you need to lean more toward one side than the other.

    2. Also, there are no specific examples. Read and re-read the last sentence in the instructions again.

    Try again.
