1.Fame‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒGood or Evil?
The advantages of being famous
My attitude towards fame
Fame can allow individuals to¬†gain
the admiration¬†and¬† more respect from society. It also provides the¬†person with¬†spiritual satisfaction and pleasure.¬†Nevertheless, when you chase after fame, you can’t escape the¬†lure¬†of¬†fame¬†and¬†its¬†promise¬†of¬†endless¬†admiration, there¬†is¬†a¬†heavy¬†price¬†one¬†must¬†pay¬†for¬†it. You must establish a good reputation and maintain positive relationships with¬†others. In my view/opinion, fame can be a double-edged sword.
2. My Career Choice
The kind of job I prefer¬†
Factors you consider when choosing a¬†job
I want to be a freelancer in the future. To be honest, it‚Äôs difficult for people to choose a career. The salary and my¬†interests are all my important¬†factors when choosing¬†my career.¬†I believe that ideally, it’s best for us to get¬†a job that¬†provides us with a good salary and also¬†fulfills my passion/interests. However, being¬†interested¬†in the job is more important. If I choose a¬†job with¬†a¬†good salary and I am not¬†fond of it, I will upset/depressed¬†and I don‚Äôt have¬†the¬†faith to¬†perform well. On the other hand, if we get¬†a¬†job that¬†pays well, maybe we¬†will feel¬†motivated to do the job because we¬†are satisfied with the pay.¬†We would¬†become more¬†self-confident and have more¬†self-worth.¬†In my point-of-view,¬†being interested is¬†more important. But, whether we like¬†our future¬†job or not, we should¬†first,¬†cultivate¬†the passion¬†we have¬†for¬†our career-choice when we are certain with what¬†we will do in the¬†future.
(Your understanding of a healthy lifestyle„ÄĀThe advantages of living a healthy lifestyle
And Ways to develop a healthy lifestyle)
From my perspective, a healthy lifestyle not only refers to a¬†balanced diet and regular timetable in daily life, but also having¬†a simple and positive mind on a¬†spiritual level. To some extent, the latter is more important even¬†though the two are complementary. Because humans¬†are always worried about the impact of everything in¬†the world so it¬†affects their mood and regular¬†lives.
So how¬†do¬†we develop a healthy¬†lifestyle? Firstly, we should¬†eliminate ideas that are not important. We‚Äôre left with the essentials. Next, focus¬†on your¬†main¬†purpose and re-use what you already own. These¬†two ways aim to simplify your life¬†and concentrate on what you really need, I think the next step such as getting sufficient rest and having¬†a balanced diet take place successfully when you acquire a healthy mind.
