People are fully aware that life is a never-ending battle, yet it’s still a process of resolving old issues and waiting for new ones to arrive. People may realize that the lives they have aren’t what they want at times. In reality, they are facing a crossroads at that moment, either accepting or finding a method to alter their situations.
However, fortunately for me, I was able to figure out who was the catalyst for my unhappiness with the current situation and how to find a new place to start over in order to overcome my flaws in order to get ready for a fresh start.
My story begins in a small town in China, where I was born and raised. I had a happy childhood with my parents and grandparents. They are all hard-working people who have never complained about their lives. My father is a government worker and my mother is a housewife. My grandfather was a farmer, but he stopped farming when my father was born. So basically I am from a family of workers. Even though we were not rich, we had everything we needed and we were happy with what we had.
However, when I was entering high school, things started to change. I realized that I was not as good as other kids in school, especially in academics. My parents always told me that I should focus on my studies and get good grades so that I can get into a good college. But no matter how hard I tried, I just could not catch up with the other kids in my class. As a result, I started to feel like I was not good enough and that I would never be able to achieve my parents’ expectations.
This feeling continued into college. Even though I was still not doing as well as the other students, I did not give up. I told myself that I could do it if I tried hard enough. And finally, after four years of struggling, I graduated from college with a degree in accounting.
After graduation, I found a job in an accounting firm in my hometown. But even though I was working, I was not happy with my life. I felt like I was stuck in a rut and that I would never be able to change my situation.
So, I made the decision to come to the United States to study for my MBA. This was a big decision for me because it meant leaving my family and everything familiar behind. But I was determined to make the change and to create a better life for myself.
Coming to the United States was definitely a culture shock for me. Everything was so different from what I was used to back home. But I quickly realized that this was exactly what I needed. The change in environment helped me to see things in a new light and to learn more about myself.
Through my MBA program, I have learned a lot about what it takes to be successful in business. I have also had the opportunity to meet new people and to network with different companies. As a result of my hard work and dedication, I have landed a job with a major accounting firm in New York City.
I am currently in the process of getting my CPA license. And even though I still have a long way to go, I am confident that I will achieve my goals. Because I have finally found the place where I belong and I am ready to make the change in my life that will lead to success.
First and foremost, I would explore the reasons that made me dissatisfied with my life so that I could fix whatever was wrong. Only in this manner can I discover precisely what my difficulties are, allowing me to attempt to remedy them if I choose to change myself. My folks were disappointed about my failure on the Chinese University Entrance Exam and wanted to send me away to a private Chinese institution to complete my studies and take over the family business after seeing me fail it.
However, I didn’t want to do this because I wanted to be an artist. Therefore, I had a talk with my parents and let them know how I feel about this and what I really want to do in the future. After that, they started to support my dream and helped me a lot.
Moreover, another way to change myself is to get rid of some bad habits that are harmful to my body or make me become lazy. For instance, staying up late at night is one of my bad habits that I need to quit because it not only makes me look tired but also affects my health in the long run. In addition, watching too much TV is also something I should stop doing as it wastes a lot of my time and I could use that time to learn new things or do something productive.
Last but not least, I think the most important thing to change myself is to believe in myself. I need to have confidence in my ability and know that I can achieve anything I set my mind to. Only when I have this belief, can I stay motivated and push myself to reach my goals.
So these are some of the ways I can change myself for the better. Learning from mistakes, getting rid of bad habits and believing in myself – these are all key factors that will help me become a better person. only when i make these changes will i be able to lead a happier and more fulfilling life.
That wasn’t the life I wanted since I had no interest in my father’s firm. The notion of changing me crossed my mind at that time, so I began to explore for reasons why I failed exams. The reason for my failure was attitude, according to me. Because I was weary of the Chinese education system, studying lost its appeal rather than being a means to an end.
From that day on, I decided to change myself. The first thing I did was to set a goal in my life. I wanted to be admitted by a world-renowned university and have an international career. My father didn’t agree with my decision because he wanted me to take over his business after graduation. However, I persisted because I knew what I was doing was right for me. In order to achieve my goal, I started to prepare for the SAT exam.
It was not easy at all because the exam covers a lot of contents and skills that I had never learned before. The most difficult part for me was the math section because I always relied on calculator to do the math problems in China. Moreover, the reading and writing sections were also challenging because I had to improve my English skills.
Fortunately, I didn’t give up and kept studying hard. Finally, I got the score that I needed and was admitted by my dream school. Now, I am studying in the United States and enjoying my life here. I am grateful for the change that happened in my life because it led me to where I am today. Without the change, I would not have had the opportunity to study abroad and gain a different perspective of the world.
Change is always difficult at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end. So if you are facing difficulties in your life right now, don’t give up because things will eventually get better. Just keep moving forward and believe in yourself!
