There is no denying that difficulties arise in the lives of us all. But what really counts is how we deal with the difficulties to succeed. Three years ago, when I began my senior high school study, I found it extremely difficult to learn English well because there were so many new words and grammar rules to keep in mind. Hard as I might try, I still did poorly in the English exams. It was the hardest time in my life and I nearly lost heart and decided to give up when my mother found my problem. She encouraged me that it took a strong person to deal with tough times and if I chose to keep on and I would be a strong person and on the way to success. In order to prove myself, I worked even harder than ever. Gradually I began to catch up with the other students in my class. At the end of term I got the highest mark in English. So if we want to meet the shinning sun on the other side of the difficulties, we should first take great courage to overcome them and then enjoy the joy of success.
As a famous saying goes that life is not a bed of roses, we will always encounter difficulties or troubles in our daily life. But what we do in difficult situations can really make a difference. Here is a story in my school life two years ago when I decided to take part in the 3,000-metre race. I was confident before the race. Unfortunately, during the race，each step seemed extremely difficult for me. What’s worse, I fell on the last lap，breaking my glasses as well as my chance of winning the race. Give up or keep on? Without hesitation, I chose the latter. “Come on. You can do it!” Everyone on the sports field was cheering for me. Although I was the last one to cross the finishing line，I won the respect of my classmates and regained my confidence. From then on, I firmly believe that if we want to meet the shinning sun on the other side of the difficulties, we should first take great courage to overcome them and then enjoy the happiness of success.
