A depressed young man approached the great philosopher Aristotle and said with a frustrated expression that he could not find a suitable job. He would feel sad about this every day, and he did not know how to change this situation. .
After hearing this, Aristotle did not immediately give a specific solution to the problem, but thought for a while and said: “Well, how about I tell you a joke?” After hearing this, the young man was very puzzled, his current mood It’s so bad that the great philosopher has no idea to find a way, but wants to tell a joke? Although the young man was reluctant, he nodded reluctantly after he sighed in his heart.
After Aristotle told the joke, the young man laughed. Seeing that the young man was in a better mood, Aristotle talked to him about other things, but he never told him how to solve the problem.
After a few minutes, Aristotle suddenly told the joke again. The young man looked at Aristotle in surprise. Did he forget that he had already told this joke? Will you not suffer from amnesia? After the joke this time, the young man didn’t laugh as much as he heard it for the first time, but just forced a smile from the corner of his mouth.
What the young man did not expect was that after only 10 minutes, Aristotle once again told the joke as it was. This time, after Aristotle finished speaking, the young man not only didn’t laugh, but he couldn’t help reminding Aristotle: “You have told this joke three times in a row. It is no longer funny.”
Listening to the young man After speaking, Aristotle suddenly said with a serious expression: “Since you don’t laugh over and over again for the same joke, then why are you sad and frustrated about the same thing?” The
young man listened. Hou Taigu gave an initiation and immediately bowed down in front of Aristotle, thanking him sincerely for his teachings, and finally left in a good mood.
Desire makes people have a positive internal drive, and it is also the source of craziness and pain.
I personally think that people have to have some desires. If you can’t surpass yourself, then you can only accept mediocrity, and it’s passive acceptance. If you want to change your destiny and future, if you want to gain fame, increase knowledge, and gain opportunities through reading, you must compete with thousands of people, and you must have a clear life plan at all stages of your life. If you want to gain a foothold in this society and excel, then you have to compete more and compete with thousands of people who are comparable to yourself to get a job, position, or salary that suits you. We often say that competition is cruel and more realistic. Therefore, this kind of “survival of the fittest” and “new day by day” desire always has a positive and positive side, which is beneficial to our individual and social progress.
It is not a disgraceful thing that people have desires. Those who use “desire to harm him” to explain some silly things, it is not exactly the desire to harm anyone. In the beginning, desire is benign, but later, greed, laziness, and inaction greatly surpass desire, and then great troubles arise.
In fact, desire to have a twin brother is to be willing. There is a willingness to gain, and there is a willingness to gain. “There are only three meals a day in a thousand hectares of fertile fields, and only three feet of couches in the Guangsha 10,000 rooms.” People who come here will advise us in this way. A person needs nothing more than this throughout his life.
All commodities in the world will always be divided into two types: service oneself and prove oneself.
– you buy your services, you are higher than it; you bought to prove himself, you’ll lower than it is
not because of their own insignificance, and give up enthusiasm in life, sincerity and patience, to give up the warmth of the other’s life , Support and responsibility.
——A warm life is more worthy of nostalgia
When I was young, I liked walking in the woods around my home. As a boy, my desire for adventure was born with me, and I went further and further. Once, after being lost for two hours, I decided to leave traces that can be traced during my expedition.
The next day, I started to try. I walked into the woods and went deeper and deeper until I couldn’t see my house. Then, I broke off the branches of a small tree to mark that I had passed by. I walked a few steps and folded a branch. In some places, the trees are tall and thick, and there are no thin branches for me to break, but there are daisies or wild carrot flowers under the trees. I trampled them down to leave a trace of my visit.
After a while, I decided to go back. Turning around, I can easily find my way home. However, looking at the trail I left behind, I was not proud. There were broken branches and broken flowers and plants everywhere along the way, and they showed me how ugly I was. I swear I will never do this again. I will sit by the creek and listen to them singing. I will watch birds and squirrels appear among them. I will bury one or two acorn seeds by myself so that they will have an extra one in the future. partner.
There is a proverb: “What kind of footprints we leave, we are what kind of people.” With the increase of age and wisdom, I do my best to never leave in my life like that day. The traces of destruction left in the woods. On the contrary, I want to leave a mark of kindness, sympathy, and beauty, and try to tell others that they can do the same.
Some people say that a person must choose what he loves in the first half of his life, and love what he chooses in the second half of his life.
In the first half of our life, our newborn calves are not afraid of tigers, and we must continue to try; in the first half of life, we have time and we must constantly choose; in the constant trial and choice, we must make trade-offs and comparisons, and what is our true value. Love, and then choose it as one’s life’s love, life’s pursuit.
In the second half of our lives, we must have no regrets or regrets about the choices we make, and we must love the choices we make with passion.
Choosing what you love and loving what you choose not only applies to our career, but also applies to our love and marriage.
