商用英文寫作 – Ups & Downs
Ups & Downs
Life is like a boat drifting without a destination in the ocean. All the waves it sways with are what make life go up and down. Although luck is an important factor that brings about rises and falls, people themselves are actually the main reason leading to the results. For instance, one may consider it an unpredictable thing that a person is suddenly fired two weeks after he just happily gets promoted. However, there is always a cause, either a person’s attitude or productivity, behind such a thing.
As for me, ups and downs always happened to my grades when I was in school. Once my scores slid down, I would try every means to improve my academic performance. Ironically, I tended to come to be casual in study every time my grades got better. What has happened to me is a typical example in which ups and downs were mainly decided by decisions made by me.
Since life is packed with the inevitable, people should embrace whatever the results will be. After all, they are required to learn to take the good and the bad by themselves, not by luck, aren’t they?
