My top concern is action
Good evening,ladies and gentlmen.It’s my great honor to be here.
“I have a dream that one day every vally shall be exalted,every hill and moutain shall be made low,the rough place will be made plain,and the crooked place will be made straight,and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,and all flesh shall see it toghther.”Yes,what a dream it has been
for Martin Luther King.However, people get their dreams lost somehow in the process of growing up actually,and sometimes saying goodbye unconciously to the distant childhood dreams.Today I am not going to talk about what is a dream,or the necessity we should hold fast of it.Tonight,action is my top concern.
Dream looks like a charming cake,if you want to taste its flavor,the only question you should answer is how to get it.That sounds
undisguised,rudely and bad upbring,but you can’t deny that it works.
That’s why babies always know what they really want than us.They haven’t so many obstacles about their desires,if they thought it is right time they will ask for at the moment without a hesitate.The most enormous barrier before us is that we often have no ideas about how to translate dreams into actions.Yes,the key point is action. Definitely, action doesn’t mean reckless.Dream can be imagined as a
destination on the map,in order to get there,we should gain some basic skills as a sailor.The ablities are experience,sometimes experience equals
to failures.Trek on the road of learning,it is obliged to face failures again and again,only if you believed youself, you can achieve the final fruits of this journey.There’s a name always occurs to me when I thought of the
failures and the insistence,it’s Andy, the character of the moive 《The
Shawshank Redemption》.In many cases,it is just a choose but you
have to pay for maybe all your life to prove,especially when the result is indistincted.It sounds merciless,on the other side,it is fair.Lif is like a box of chocolate,you never know what you gonna get,so why don’t you hold
on,and try once more,you would smell the breath of freedom tomorrow probably ,like Andy, after digging thousands of times. After trudging a path beset with difficulties,experience is your own fortune. Gradually,the failures hit your confidence strongly,the dream become withered,curiosity and courage is indispensable.Ditching everything to travel the world is a dream everyone had during the childhood, acting out that fantasy tends to be reserved for retirees and recent college graduates. A 14-year-old Dutch girl sailed solo around the world successfully in this summer.She is even younger than us but how could she make the dream trip a reality.It’s the curiosity about this fabulous world and the courage of herself. Once you get outside the confines of your day-to-day life, you discover things about yourself.
C.S.Lewis once said, “You are never too old to dream a new dream.”
Tonight,I’d like to say you are never too old to act out an old dream.
