What is more important ? Is it working hard or grabing the opportunity ? People always say you need to work hard , and when I was a little kid , the most often my parents say to me is you need to study hard and go to a good university, only that can offer you a good job. My father was a very strict man, Im very appreciate that he is demanding to me. But now looking back,I realized working hard is not every thing, grabing the chance is much more important in life. Woking hard with your entire life, standing at the bottom in one company doesnt make sense. I wont say its successful life or career.
Compare to wroking hard , I think grabing the oportunity plays more important role in the life no matter what ways. Recently somehow I got in touch with lot old friends and old classmates who I havent been talking with for ages. And many of them were excellent studenst in teachers’ eye before, we shared the stories happened to ourselves, I was surprised to see almost none of them has a excellent job or career path as they were expected to have. on the other hand,, my other friends who I keep contact with are doing good job , some of them are doing business, some are selfemplyee , what make them beyond these good students is that they took the opportunity.
I do agree we need to study hard to some extent, education teaches us the basci morality, that’s the rule surviving in this society. But I wouldnt say to my kids you have to go top university , in stead of which I would let them experience more , bad or good. I would let them go out to see how the world is working instead of sitting in the classroom doing exercise all the time.Maybe that’s why we “bad students” know the market better and know how to take chance , what do you think ?:P
