May you and I reap a successful life when we look up and bow our heads.
I have read this sentence on Zhihu:
"look up at the sky and find the Beidou; look down at the road and cross the ditch."
although there are thousands of postures in life, the only one to bend over is to hide a great universe.
look up when you should look up, you can see the direction of the future clearly; when you bow your head, you can recognize the road under your feet.
raise your head in adversity, bow in prosperity
Coolidge wrote this sentence in his memoirs in his later years:
"there is no substitute for tenacity and tenacity in the world."
21-year-old Shi Tiesheng, when he was in his youth, fate hit him in the head-he disabled his legs, and he could never stand up again, so he could only stay with a wheelchair for life.
in those tortured days, he laughed at himself and said, "
occupation is sick, amateur is writing
while thinking about the meaning of life, Shi Tiesheng wrote works such as "me and The Temple of Earth", "recuperation Notes", "broken Pen in sickness" and so on, which is known as "a peak of literature".
his perseverance and self-improvement in the face of adversity brought him to the other side of success.
A long life requires not only the courage to rise in adversity, but also the ability to bow in prosperity.
Yan Shu, a poet of the Northern Song Dynasty, was smart from an early age and was known as a "child prodigy".
one day, the palace was discussing the candidates to assist the prince in his studies, and Song Zhenzong hand-appointed Yan Shu.
the ministers were puzzled and asked why.
Song Zhenzong said: "I have heard that many subjects are addicted to games and banquets, and only Yan Shu reads behind closed doors. People who are so self-respecting and cautious are suitable to accompany the prince to study."
when Yan Shu thanked him, he also said bluntly, "it's not that I don't like playing and drinking, but I just don't have any money at home." If I had money, I would have gone out to play. "
when Song Zhenzong heard this, this man was so honest and calm that he appreciated him even more.
when all the way is smooth, bow your head and act cautiously and steadily before you can go far and steady.
when you are at a low ebb, there is nothing insurmountable when you look up at the starry sky.
raise your head when you are inferior, bow when you are high
Mr. Yang Jiang once said:
"No matter where you go up in your life, someone is looking up at you and someone is looking down at you.
you look up and feel inferior and complacent. Only by looking down can you see who you really are. "
friends who have seen the Strategy of extending the Jubilee must remember the character Wei Lulu.
A small palace maid, despite her humble origins, never feels inferior.
after being bullied, she spilled water on the other side without saying a word, and said, "I, Wei Liulu, was born with a bad temper and was not easy to mess with." If anyone keeps talking, I have plenty of ways to deal with him. "
even if she is punished to go to Xinzhiku to brush the toilet, she not only has no sorrow, but also brushes out a new realm and uses a wonderful prescription to deodorize the toilet.
if she does "humble things" in the spirit of "humble heart", then she will always be a maid of embroidery and will not find out the cause of death for her sister, let alone become an imperial concubine.
after Wei Yiluo became the favorite concubine of the emperor, she was never conceited, but more humble.
as soon as she changed her usual appearance of "fearless heaven and earth", she appropriately showed weakness to the emperor and won understanding and forgiveness.
instead of bullying, beating and scolding her subordinates at will, like other masters, she sincerely regards them as her own.
when you are in a low position, you will be looked up to by others only if you think highly of yourself first.
in a high position, the higher you stand, the more you should learn to be humble and don't forget the hardships of climbing.
as the saying goes: above people, regard people as people; below people, regard yourself as people.
this is the best way to be a man.
raise your head when you are down, bow your head when you are happy
A writer once said:
Our black homecoming dresses are defined by fine fabric and lasting pulchritude. Fantastic collections are on hot sale right now!
"when you are unlucky, don't be discouraged when you think of luck; when you are lucky, think of bad luck and don't be too complacent."
the world is changeable, so you can be as high as you are.
Zhang Juzheng, a famous statesman of the Ming Dynasty, has been high achiever since childhood, but the road to examination is not smooth.
however, Gu Kuang, the governor of Huguang at that time, deliberately put him through some trials and let him fail the list.
it turns out that Zhang Juzheng wrote a song "title Bamboo" before the exam, in which there was a sentence "Feng Mao Cong Jian Jie, straight to the end pole".
he compares himself to a rarity and wants to go straight to the clouds.
Gu Jing feels that it is not a good thing for a 13-year-old child to be so conceited and arrogant.
A generation of high achiever was unexpectedly failed in the list. Zhang Juzheng was very unconvinced.
Gu Yi found Zhang Juzheng and admitted, "I insisted on not admitting you."
from this sentence and the expectant eyes, the young Zhang Juzheng was no longer proud, stopped complaining and went back to study harder.
at the age of 16, Zhang Juzheng took part in the second rural examination and successfully won the exam. Gu Xing congratulated him and gave him a belt.
20, heFull of confidence to participate in the examination, once again failed. This time, there is no behind-the-scenes operation.
many years later, Zhang Juzheng reflected in a letter to his son Zhang Maoxiu:
"they all blame themselves for being too conceited and complacent at that time, not seriously learning the knowledge of taking the exam, but reading freely, which led to the failure of the exam."
because he was so proud that the examiner made him feel a "frustration education";
because he is too proud and self-inflated, he has experienced another setback.
many people say that they are tricked by fate, in fact, it is more because of the nature of the mind.
when he is frustrated, Zhang Juzheng understands that he strives for the top; when he gets what he wants, he should have reined in his edge, but he begins to be pretentious.
the ups and downs of life are only for a moment.
as the saying goes, don't panic when you are down and don't shake when you are happy.
when you are miserable and frustrated, you are hopeful and positive, with good scenery everywhere.
when you are in full bloom, keep your mind steady and think carefully, and the rest of your life will be smooth.
once read the words of a Zen master who warned his disciples:
"if you always hold your head high, you will trip over the pebbles on the ground sooner or later;
if you always keep your chin down, you will walk into a dark dead end because you can't see the light. "
the highest wisdom in one's life is not blindly publicizing or keeping a low profile, but knowing when to bow and when to look up.
, may you and I have a successful life when we look up and bow.
