2012年同等学力每日练04.23

 

 

   Do people stop once they have achieved something? No! In life, we are always trying to do things better or having more of the same success.
Jane Fonda moved from being an Academy Award actress to a successful businesswoman. Her aerobies (有氧体操) workout videos have been sold around the world.
Athletes are constantly making greater and greater efforts to lower time for races; increase heights or distances.
The world of medicine has had its series of successes too. Christian Barnard performed several successful heart transplants. Other medical experts have achieved organ transplants. Throughout the ages, mankind has found treatment and cures for tuberculosis (肺结核), cancer, and other disease. A cure of AIDS might soon be discovered.
Age does not seem to slow down achievers. Tina Turner at 54 is still singing with great energy and attracting sell-out crowds wherever she goes.
At work, we go all out for achievements too. Success may mean organizing a conference more effectively and efficiently each year. Sometimes, it is not a pat on the back or the promotion that makes it worthwhile. Often, it is the inner thrill and satisfaction of achievement, no matter how small it may be.
Aiming for success doesn’t mean you are greedy or dissatisfied. It is all part of gaining new experiences and dimensions in life. It finally makes you a more interesting and useful person in society.
