Leave the Beaten Track and Dive into a New World
Life is flowing like a river. There is always another way to survive. As an industrialist said, “if you want to succeed, you should move onto a new path.” Don't follow the path of success that has been trampled down. There's no denying that if you have no innovation and you are stuck in inertia, you will become a mediocre person. Therefore, we must have the courage to break the inertia thinking and be the leader of the times as well as unveil the first light of dawn.
A great artist Rodin once said that life is not lacking in beauty, but is lacking in eyes to discover beauty. In less than twenty years after the introduction of phones to China, Huawei, our domestic mobile phone manufacturer, successfully launched the world's first 5G network, surpassing the world's number one in the field – Qualcomm and Ericsson. Finally, it broke the status quo of the communication technology monopoly in European and American countries. For China, this is a break-through. Huawei's success is due to their ability to break away from technical routines, step outside the box of thinking, and see the problems they are facing as outsiders.
Huawei jumps out of the box to achieve a great success. If people want to be successful, they should also jump out of the box of thinking like Huawei. So how do we jump out of the box of thinking? First and foremost, we have to broaden our horizons and increase our knowledge. Then we must think about the problem in all directions, learn from each other, and break the conventional rules, which reminds me of a sentence that is rich in connotations. You can't change the wind direction, but you can adjust the sails; you can't control the weather, but you can adjust your moods. If things can't change, change your mind. It is the same with life and learning. We are always blinded by existing knowledge and inclined to resort to instinctive thinking, whose name is called “mindset”. In popular terms, thinking is in a box. Some things just need to be thought of from another angel. And it will help you into a wonderful realm of "where hills bend, streams wind and the past way seems to end. Past dark willows and blooming flowers lies another village"
In a word, sticking to rules will hinder the progress of society. Only by breaking through the old principles that are inconsistent with reality and discard backward ideas, can we achieve social progress, open up new realms, and create a better future.
