Personal 5-paragraph narrative essay

Would you be willing to stand up for the right thing even if everyone around you thought it was wrong? This is a story that talks about how one person stood up for something that he believed and he stuck with it even though everyone around him thought that he was mad for thinking the way he did.

James had always been a good student and he made good grades in school. He was a model student so you might expect the surprise of the people around him including his peers and his teachers when he decided to quit school and start his own small online business.

No one condoned this move and everyone told him that he was being stupid and that he should concentrate on his school and complete his education. People told him that he cannot expect to have the same luck and fortune as Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, but James did not listen to anyone. He was adamant on his decision and he kept on working on his project.

It was not soon afterwards that James' website started picking up traffic. Soon, more than 40 million users were daily login on to his website and that created a big business for him. Soon, people from all over the world started to visit his website and it became a very popular website. Major internet companies started making bids for his website and James ended up selling the website for a whopping $100 million.

This just goes on to show that it is important to stick to what you believe in no matter what other people say. James had a conviction that he was going to make it big and he had an idea that was going to make him a millionaire. Everyone else was against the decision that he made but he kept strong and in the end he reaped the benefits.
