In an ever-changing world, people are bound to face various challenges. However, challenges mean not only difficulties, but also opportunities. From my perspective, considering that there are many possibilities in our future, we should not be afraid of challenges and encourage students to develop the ability to meet challenges.

There are several factors accounting for my view. In the first place, challenges can cultivate our personality. It is inevitable that we will encounter difficulties and problems. At critical times, one’s positive attitude towards challenges plays a crucial role in turning hardship into good results. In addition, it is challenges that can inspire our potential. Whatever situation we are faced with, people who have the ability of dealing with difficulties have a greater chance of success. Individuals may achieve temporary success by good luck, but only after we go through the adversity on our own can we have the solid foundation of success. 

From what I have discussed above, we may safely draw the conclusion that challenges may have positive effects on our life. The earlier we are aware of the optimistic side that challenges provide, the more benefits we will get.







Why students should be encouraged to develop communication skills


There are all kinds of students with different personalities in our diverse university. Despite this, it is beneficial for all of us to develop effective communication skills, and there are a few arguments that can justify my opinion.

In the first place, as students, we inevitably face different groups of people: our roommates, our classmates, our professors and many others. Therefore, it is necessary for us to speak properly and avoid offending or hurting others when faced with certain kinds of people, which is the number-one social etiquette. Besides, those who can communicate effectively are often confident, popular, and make more friends. As a result, they tend to gain more respect and support from others when they feel in distress. Last but not least, effective communication with different people can broaden our horizons and cultivate our empathy, both of which are of utmost importance to our future lives.

All in all, it is okay to be either shy or outgoing, but it is worth pondering before socializing with other people, especially people who hold a different personality. Only in this way can we truly integrate with our communities with a sense of belonging.

When it comes to the importance of creativity, people often naturally come to a consensus. Ironically, an increasing number of people tend to ignore this capability. From my point of view, students should be encouraged to develop a creative mind, especially in the digital era we are living in.

Firstly, in a time of information explosion when young people are immersed in a sea of messages, what they lack is not the ability to receive data, but the ability to think creatively. Students should learn to sift and organize various kinds of information in a creative way, so that they won’t feel lost oftentimes. Secondly, students need to develop their creativity because it will make them better prepared for their future career. Those who can come up with innovative solutions to the tricky issues they meet will be highly competitive at the workplace.

In summary, the importance of encouraging students to develop their creativity could never be overstated. Their parents and teachers need to realize this and provide the students with more opportunities to cultivate their creativity.
