In the legendary timeless book and motion picture, Ben-Hur, the main character, Judah Ben-Hur, through an accident and awful misconception is apprehended and offered to operate in the mines by the Roman authorities. Regardless of going from the kid of a wealthy household to servant, Ben-Hur refused to fall under misery. He worked out and developed his strength up. When he was all set he inched his way up the mineshaft and made it to the top. His eyes were very sensitive since he was blinded by the sunshine after investing so much time in the dark mine shaft.
His captors were so impressed with his strength that they sold him to the Roman navy as a rower for their warships. Once again Ben-Hur chose not to give up. He used his excellent strength to end up being the very best rower on the boat. Ultimately, he was given the special benefit of not being chained to the boat.
Later in an excellent naval battle, his boat was rammed and sunk. He was the only servant to get away due to the fact that Ben-Hur was not chained. He was able to conserve the admiral who had allowed to have him unchained. The admiral was so grateful; he took him to Rome and embraced him as his child. Later when the admiral passed away, Ben-Hur inherited his fantastic wealth. He ultimately made his way back to Jerusalem and was reunited with his mother and sis.
Instead of slipping into despair from the injustice done to him, Ben-Hur burned with terrific desire for flexibility and to right the incorrect done to him. When opportunities came he took advantage of them.
” To every male there comes … that unique minute when he is figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the possibility to do a unique thing unique to him and fitted to his talent. Exactly what a catastrophe if that moment finds him unqualified or unprepared for the work which would be his finest hour.”
