When we are a child, our parents and teachers often tell us that we should not befear of adversity rather than try to overcome it. When we grow up, we foundthat the differences between us and those successful people are the attribute towardadversity.
What’s is adversity? According to Cambridge Dictionary, adversitymeans a difficult or unlucky situation or event. In a word, “adversity” hints uneasy or misfortune.
However, different peoples have different views and behaviors for adversity.Obviously, Abraham Lincoln was one of the greatest American presidents. Hiswhole life was full of hardships and innumerable adversities. When he was 9 oldyears, his mother died. When he was 22, he failed in business. When he was 27, hesuffered from nervous. Afterwards, he decided to run for senator, but he alsolost for many times. Even though much misfortune fell on him, he didn't give upand finally he was elected as the American president. In today's China, Ma Yunis one of the famous businessmen. But he was not always smooth during the wholeperiod of creating Alibaba. At the beginning, because of his so advancedconcept so that few people can understand him and the conditions at that time wereindeed immature, he didn't make it. But he always believe in his faith andconsisted on e-commerce, and finally he has started his time in today's world!From these two famous people, we can find that for those strong-willed, adversitysuggests stimulus, encouragement and success. When they face adversity, theydon't regard it as the barrier rather than a chance. The chance meansimprovement and perfection for them. By repeating them again and again, theymade the final success. Back to our lives, we also meet many challenges every day,no matter what it is from academic research or from life. Maybe you feel very tired and so hard to move one step. Maybe you choose to give up at first. Infact, this is very common and regular from the nature of humans .But there are two choices from this time :escaping itor beating it! Different choices contribute to different results. Those choosing to beat it are like a warrior and they keep calm and analyse the reason ofdifficult situation. When they find the problem ,it means they have obtainedthe half of success. Then they either explore the possibilities for improvementsthemselves or ask experienced persons for help. By experiencing thus process, theygrow up and gain a lot. They finally overcome the difficulties. But for those choosing to escape it, they feel that “adversity” is bad luck which crushesthem and drives them to frustration and despair. When they face the samesituation again, they can also escape it. At the end, they 're destined tofailure and achieve nothing.
As the proverb goes, sweet are the uses of adversity. There are two sides for everything. When we meet something unfortunate, we should not complain about it. In contrary, we should keep optimisticto overcome it. Nothing can beat ourselves except ourselves . So make usbe stronger and more brave. Only by this, we can make it in front of all kinds of adversities!
