Facing with choices
As we all know, everyone has to make choices in life, whether it is about choosing a beautiful dress or finding a satisfying job. While some decisions are easy to make, others are tough calls and would put us in a dilemma.
In order to make a decision that we will not regret, we should bear these two principles in mind: thinking before acting, and never missing any opportunities that arise. On the one hand, we should have an apparent, objective judgment about ourselves while maintaining a clear idea about the world around us. On the other hand, we should also realize that every individual is different, and one must take the factors of one's personal life into consideration. In addition, opportunity is hard-earned; we should take advantage of it just like the proverb states: "Opportunities are only for the prepared minds."
In my opinion, people must be both realistic and self-aware. Once a decision is made, we should seriously accept and pursue the path one has chosen, and strive towards the realization of one's goal with perseverance. Meanwhile, always remember that taking advantage of good opportunities will pave the way to success.
