|Sparkle my mind and Value the life||2015-05-12 17:06:09|
|On March 27th I joined the study course of Professor Yang(楊振昇院長). This was the sceond time I listened to his lecture. I knew he would give me something to ispire my mind.
Today Professor Yang gave the lecture titled as “Be Positive, Create Your Value”. He used the view point“Here and Now”as the opening. What he wanted to express was living at the moment. Then he continued three points as below:
First he presented the key point was “to be postive and create your value”. The second perspective was to give the love of service and make your life sparkling and the finally was keeping systematic study and promoting your creative ability.
To talk the ideas is easy but to do is another,so he brought up some real situatons happening in his life.
When talking about living “at the moment”, he described the story of the fisherman and the richman to explain what it was. Our lecturer said that the richman tried hard to make money,because he thought when he became rich and then he could enjoy the life. On the other hand,the fisherman have already enjoyed the life at this moment and it was enough for him. So this made me think that the option about waiting until we are rich or creating our own lives right now really depended on ourselves.
The most important part of the lecturer’s course was ”to be positive and create your value”. He used the power of positive thinking to describe the importance of positive thinking. He said all people need to change the thoughts to be positive,and the main method was to adjust our emotions before we needed to deal with matters.I could understand what he wanted to express.
To make our thoughts positive was something like making our mind clear. It was not easy but we still needed to practice all the time. I wished I could do well. The lecturer presented some tips as below:
Learning to talk with ourselves by using posivite words was a good method.Another method was controlling our bad moods. People didn’t like to talk with an angry guy. Keeping rational attitude could always get a good result in any situation.
As he mentioned how to give the love of the service and make your life sparkling, he told a story of the driver working in the Civil Service Development Institute,Tainan City Government.
His duty was to pick up the lecturers of the courses and drive them back to the stop of High Speed Train. When the lecturer entered the car,he would be welcomed by a friendly Hello from the driver,and then the driver would take out the book written by the lecturer to ask for the signature. It was hard to imagine that when the driver knew who the lecturer was ,he would buy one of the lecturer’s books and read through it. After getting the signature ,he would put the book on the book-shelf of the Civil Service Development Institute to share with others . Another thing he would do was to introduce the scenic spots of Tainan City,because he thought it was the best chance to show Tainan to our guests. We would know one thing about the driver that was he showed the best respect and welcome to the lecturer,just such an action making the lecturer feel warm. How positive he is! As we know later,the Mayor of Tainan City praised him in pubic and he got promoted finally.
As the driver provided his services , he would never want to get any feeback or profit. He just did what he wanted to do and he might enjoy to do so. This example taught me that we need to do our best to provide the service and do good to others.
In the finally part it was about how to keep systematic study and promote your creative ability. He used the words of Morris Chang“Systematic learning is the key to life”as the point. Morris Chang said that to study all life was necessary.It meant that we need to keep targeted、systematic and discpline learning ,then it could lead to success.
The study course also included video showing,and it was about some disability people who conquered difficulties and made success in their lives. People in those difficult situations could succeed in their lives would be the best example to us. Till now I still feel some words echoing around my ears that was “Don’t say giving up except death”. Those words really encouraged me.From that moment I am convinced of myself never giving up because there would be some hope anytime.
From the course what I have learned was there are many difficulties in our lives,but we need to always make thoughts positive and then we can take more efficient actions to sovle our problems. It’s ourselves who can create our own lives,so let’s sparkle our minds and make dreams come true.
