** Likewise, all the skydiving in ''Film/PointBreak'' is real. Swayze was an experienced skydiver, and he did over 50 jumps during filming.




to:

* Any skydiver. Not only the training curriculum is intensive, but the sport itself includes overcoming the primordial fear - fear of jumping into empty air and defying certain and very nasty death. To steer your canopy and land safely on your feet is a skill on itself. Many experienced skydivers are likely to have experienced fractured bones, dislocated joints and sprained ankles, but they still keep on going.



* You. The average human being will go through emotional pain, from the heartbreak of betrayal to the agony of losing a loved one, physical trauma, be it a debilitating disease or a horrendous injury, and sometimes even torture; see any cases of child abuse, big or small. Chances are ''you'' have at some point gone through at least one of these horrific occurrences, and yet here you read, my friend. We are one of the few species who can feel a colossal range of emotion, a species who regularly fill our environment with hundreds of thousands of tonnes of speeding steel and iron, not to mention our passion for killing each other, and we '''[[HumansAreSurvivors keep]] [[LastStand on going]]'''.

* J.K. Rowling. She worked on the first Harry Potter book for five years, writing as she dealt with her mother's untimely death, a failed marriage, hand-to-mouth poverty and being a single mother. Then she went from living off benefits to multi-millionaire status in five years.

* Political third parties are definite embodiments of this trope, especially the Libertarian and Green Parties. In spite of draconian state ballot access laws, limited financial resources, and media coverage that ranged from dismissive to nonexistent, the Libertarian Party got their 2016 Presidential ticket (Gary Johnson/William Weld) on the ballot in all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia. Facing the same barriers, the Green Party's ticket (Dr. Jill Stein/Ajamu Baraka) got on the ballot in all but 6 states (they did achieve write-in status in three of those states). Johnson received over 4 million votes, while Stein received over 1 million - record high Presidential vote totals for both parties.

** To that end one should recognize the efforts of the pro-civil rights Senators during the 1964 debate. Unlike in 1957, the 1964 Act was facing a much tougher filibuster from the southerners, who also engaged in quorum calls to help kill the bill (as an absence of quorum could kill the legislation). The pro-civil rights Senators, led by HubertHumphrey, managed to answer every quorum call and eventually see the act passed. Though most of the pro-civil rights Senators were exhausted from having to answer quorum calls on little to no sleep, they made the effort and eventually won out.

* Derek Jeter became a New York Yankees living legend because of this. Offensively, he was known and praised for being able to make that clutch hit when the game was on the line. There were many games where Jeter did poorly at the plate, until a crucial hit was needed. During those moments, it didn't matter how good the pitcher was he always found the right pitch to hit. He always found a way to perform big when it mattered, and many of those hits were the reason the 90s Yankees Dynasty was possible. Defensively, he was praised for making some of the biggest run saving plays in league history, including plays where he sacrificed his own body and sustained injuries, just to get an out.
