In This Is Water the speech has many main ideas. Such as there are always going to be hard times. Another one is that life is what you make of it and also that a high school diploma means nothing. Another one is that you have to believe in order to be successful. Also is that everyone has their own idea of looking at the world and it is what you make of it. The big one is that everyone can be wrong and that nothing’s perfect. Most people put themselves before others.  These main ideas help you figure out what the speaker is talking about the point he is trying to get across to the listeners. Another points in this speech were what to agree with. Such as only you can decide what you want and only you can achieve it if you really work at it.

These points to agree with is that everyone looks at the world differently, just like my brother looks at the world a lot differently than me. Everyone has a place and purpose in this world and the path you decided to take will make your life the way you want it to go or not. The point that no one realizes is that it’s okay to be wrong and no ones perfect. The understanding of the world is difficult the way that you perceive the world is how the world will look for the rest of your life, which is not true at all.  Don’t let society turn you into something your not because societies biggest downfall is that it conforms people into being and doing stuff that they don’t want to do or necessarily need in their lives. The last one is that you make the world into what you want it to be and only you can change it or make it better.
