I’m not very smart, only a little brave

Written by Xia Banyue


I can only use one “ Courage ” Words to describe.

At that time, in order to practice my oral English well, I had to summon up the courage to participate in various English salons, and tried every means to chat with foreigners in English. Slowly, my poor spoken English became fluent.

My job search experience is even funnier. Someone told me that there was an office building in Guangzhou, which was full of local offices of foreigners. So I went to the office building, knocked on the door one by one, and asked them if they wanted to hire someone.

When I hit the tenth house, I happened to meet their boss, so I was asked to go in for an interview. Fifteen minutes later, I got my first job as an English translator with a good salary.

In retrospect, I still feel lucky that I could have courage and courage when I was young. The significance of this job is extraordinary. It has made my English useful, exposed me to many suppliers, and opened a broad road for my foreign trade career.

I have always liked a song called “Yong” by Hong Kong singer yangqianhe. As its lyrics say: “ I am not fearless, I am not afraid of death, but before the romantic kiss, how can you reach the precipice and the mountain? It should be flat for you& rdquo;

How many people fear in their life. Because of this, the importance of courage often becomes the key to the success of a thing.


My first two years in the sales industry were also the most reckless and courageous years in my career.

At a regular department meeting, our boss asked us to go on more business trips to meet customers. As soon as my mind was hot, I immediately applied for a business trip to Hong Kong. After making an appointment with the customer, he hurried on his way the next morning.

That was the first time I went to Hong Kong, and it was also the first time I went far away. Without company, I came to that strange international metropolis alone. I was a little flustered, but I thought it was no big deal, so I listened to passers-by and came to the subway entrance, entering the labyrinth of Hong Kong subway. I walked all the way out of the subway, walked through the streets, from Wanchai to central, and then from Mongkok to Kwai Chung. I met four customers in one day.

However, after coming out of the client company, I was full of frustration, because this trip was basically nothing. Although Hong Kong customers praised me for having the courage to talk business with them when I was young, I think it’s no use just being brave? Foolhardy is just a waste of time.

When I returned to the company, I was nervous and afraid of being scolded by my boss. Unexpectedly, my boss not only didn’t criticize me, but also praised me in front of all my colleagues for my bravery. I knew that before me, no colleague had ever dared to go to so many customers alone. I’m still a pioneer. I’m really brave.

That time, the boss said to us: “ When you were young, sometimes you didn’t need to be too smart. As long as you had the courage, you could carve a mountain and carve out a path of your own& rdquo;

It’s amazing. After returning from a business trip in Hong Kong, I became very lucky. I soon won a small customer, and then another customer. In the fourth month, I won another big customer. My career seemed to be on the hook. Perhaps, as the boss said, when a person is full of courage, he will be fearless, and even difficulties will make way for you.


My high school deskmate Ling is an ordinary looking girl. Her left leg is not very flexible. She walks around and her academic performance is very average. For this reason, she felt inferior and never dared to speak loudly. She even walked with her head down.

Once during recess, I heard her humming in a low voice, just like a yellow warbler coming out of the valley. I said: “ Ling, you sing so well. If you go to the competition, you will certainly make a sensation in the whole school& rdquo;

Ling smiled shyly and said: “ I’m so ugly that I’m sure to scare people to death on stage& rdquo;

Soon, new year’s Day arrived. The school was going to hold a party. Our class reported a chorus program. To select a student to lead the singing, the class teacher asked the students to volunteer. Several students auditioned, but none of them was satisfactory. I looked at Ling. Her eyes were bright. Her hands were hidden in the belly of her desk. Her fists were clenched. She looked expectant but scared. I know, she really wants to try, but she is not brave enough.

I decided to give her a hand. I took advantage of her inattention to pull her hand from under the table and raise it high. Ling was startled and tried to put her hand down, but the teacher saw her and asked her to sing a short passage.

Ling had to sing. At first, she was a little afraid, even her voice was shaking. But after singing the first sentence, the classroom suddenly became silent and everyone was shocked.

At that new year’s Day party, Ling conquered the whole school with her voice. The teacher arranged for her to be our entertainment committee member and let her teach us to sing.

Summoning up courage and opening her voice, Ling slowly became cheerful and lively. Although she walked slowly, she no longer bowed her head. She looks really beautiful with a smile on her face. The students call her “ Huang Ying ”, It seemed that she had forgotten her inflexible left leg and her ordinary appearance.

Who is born with “ Leopard gall ” And? Many people have already cultivated their skills in those low self-esteem and introverted times, but it is because of their lack of courage and self-confidence that their talent has become a good wine in the deep alley, missed a lot of opportunities and wasted a lot of time.

If you were brave, everything would be different.


Wang Jianlin said this not long ago: “ No Tsinghua or Peking University is as bold as bold& rdquo;

I think so. When others are still afraid of this fear, the brave people have bravely taken steps to eat crabs. It is said that it is better to travel thousands of miles than to read thousands of books. No matter how much you think, it is better to start doing. Sometimes, when we summon up the courage to do something that seems very difficult, all the difficulties will be solved.

It doesn’t matter if you are not smart enough, as long as you have the courage to try; It doesn’t matter if you fail, as long as you have the courage to keep trying. When we were young, many people lacked wisdom. That doesn’t matter. As long as we have the courage to try, we still have the possibility of success.

The really smart people are usually slow-moving people who are afraid that you are not smart enough, but they are still talking on paper. Because they are not smart, they have tried to adhere to these habits for 7 years
