As the saying goes, "when you eat, you gain wisdom.". Yes! Who hasn't encountered setbacks and failures in his growing up! Edison, the great inventor, has experienced many setbacks from failure to success! Has Leonardo da Vinci, a famous painter, created a beautiful and moving work, and hasn't encountered setbacks in this successful path? No, he has survived all kinds of difficulties.
Is Zu Chongzhi a mathematician born a genius? No, he has also experienced many ups and downs, and he is not afraid of difficulties and faces the edge. Are they all geniuses? No, they have gone through many setbacks and experience, so they have today's success.
Remember once, in the competition, the Olympic Games, in the prescribed time, to see who answered the right questions, who is the champion. I got rid of all kinds of difficulties that came in front of me. After all kinds of difficulties, I got a good result in the third place. I not only got the certificate, but also got many prizes. I looked at my prize and my heart was a little fluttering.
My mother saw that I was in a trance these days. I was always on a errand in class. When I got home, my homework was like a task. She said to me meaningfully, "Yan Shiying, the final exam is coming in a month. If you don't study hard, you will have to eat duck eggs when you come out of the final exam." I just think what my mother said at that time is very important, but I didn't think so when I was a child.
I think: it's just a small final exam! I've even been to the big competition venues and won awards. What's so afraid of these! Time goes by slowly. In this period of time, I'm either watching TV or playing computer. The scores of these final simulation exams have plummeted.
It's only a little over a week at the end of the deadline. Alas! I still have some texts that I can't memorize, and some words that I can't keep silent. Alas! What can I do about it? I can't help it. I'm just cramming.
On the day of the exam, my heart pounded like a rabbit in my arms. When I arrived at the examination hall, I was ready to write. I prayed to God to bless me to score above 95, and at the same time I comforted myself: don't be nervous, what's so nervous! I've participated in many times in the big competition, what's the fear of this small test? As long as I'm calm, the test will be good.
But even though I was comforting myself, my heart was still pounding. Alas! I was so nervous, God! Bless me! On the contrary, God not only didn't protect me, but also hurt me! I regretted that I was too proud. I was so happy for my little achievement. I regretted that I didn't review well, and I also temporarily embraced Buddhism, regretted that I didn't think carefully. Ah! But what's the use? If I buy regret medicine in the world, I will buy it at all costs.
It's true that I learned a lesson from the final exam and gained wisdom. If you want to finish everything successfully, you must keep working hard and never be complacent.
I have changed modesty to progress and pride to backwardness into my motto. It reminds me and urges me all the time. So let's become a person who can "learn from a fall"!
