lin hao, in face of so great a catastrophe, did not evade but gave his hands to his classmates. it was his confidence and calmness that gave others the second life. i am proud of him. to be honest, lin hao is my little hero in my heart.
bernard shaw has ever said a word. "those who have confidence can transform smallness into greatness and make mediocre things look beautiful''. in another word, self-confidence is the first step to success. thus, no matter when and what, we do not allow ourselves to be discouraged. lin hao's experience tells us that confidence is very important to us. it also reminds me of my own experience during the first year of senior middle school. after i entered senior school, i found it really hard for me to learn math well. there were so many problems which i didn't understand that i did badly in exams. both my parents and math teachers believed that i couldn't learn math well. one day i met a difficult problem which took me nearly an hour to work it out. nonetheless，i realized that i was the only one in my class to work it out! that really built up my confidence in math. finally i became very good at math and my math teacher was surprised by my progress. it was confidence that helped me overcome the difficulty.
if a person wants to be successful, the first thing to do is to get confidence, as success is the body of confidence.
there are many characteristic exist in the world, and characteristic is very important to people. for example, active, persistence, optimistic makes people successful; lazy, passive makes people fail. having a good characteristic means you have the key to the successful door, but you have to find the way of success. this is what i am going to talk about, the key to success: persistence.
persistence is a key to success, whether for a single person or an organization. people who lack of it would mean failure in reaching a certain goal. people need to know that success seldom comes easily on the first try; they should have the patient to insist trying until they get the goal. unsuccessful people try something just a few times, and when it fails, they give up; they usually pass the blame onto someone or something, and learn nothing from their experience. successful people are different, even they fail, and they won’t lose their passion.
let me take a famous person to example. his name is da vinci, he is known as a great painter, artist. everyone knows him, but i think there are not much people known that how much effort did he made before he became a famous artist. da vinci draw eggs everyday when he was young, hundreds and thousands times a day. it is definite a boring work, many people could not bear to face an egg and draw it in different angle thousands times. but da vinci did it, and he made it. we could say it is not for his persistence that he would not get the great aptitude for painting.
talent is a gift from god, persistence is a key you’ve got, and effort makes those working which bring you to open the door of success.
i would rather suffer hardships than fail. in other words, to achieve success is my only desire. we all know that there are many factors of success. now let me write down the most important ones in the following.
diligence foolish as a person is, he can succeed in his work if he works hard. that does not admit of any doubt.
perseverance when you fail, don t lose heart. keep on working until you accomplish your aim.
honesty if you tell lies or does not keep your words, no one will rely on you. i would rather be scolded than cheat .
