the Book of morality says, "he who does not lose his place for a long time."

means that people can last for a long time only by finding their own position and not losing their duty.

if you lose your place, overestimate yourself, and indulge in superficial ostentatiousness, it is rare to be successful in life.

in the final analysis, the most important thing in one's life is to recognize oneself and find the right place.


stand in the wrong place and lose yourself

I have read such a story.

A cat with a spiritual mind crouches beside the Buddha statue all the year round to catch intruding mice and prevent them from blaspheming the Buddha.

one day, a mouse called and beaten by everyone slipped into the temple. Just as the cat was out, the mouse hid in a corner of the Buddhist case.

when the mouse saw the people, they not only lost their previous fierceness, but also knelt down piously in front of them.

Search for the perfect blue mermaid prom dress for your wardrobe ? Buy the dress you always dreamed of now.

over time, the mouse thought that people were afraid of it, so they swaggered up to the shrine, enjoying worship and worship in the incense.

however, when the civet returned to the temple and saw that the mouse was so arrogant, it immediately jumped on it.

at this time, the mouse shouted to it proudly:

the cat sneered and replied:

then the mouse was pulled out of the Buddha case, one moment it was prosperous, and the next moment it became a delicious meal for the cat.

I have heard such a saying: "all misfortunes in life are mostly due to standing in the wrong place."

things are placed in the wrong place, they will lose their value; if people stand in the wrong position, they are easy to get lost and feel that they deserve the prosperity and dignitaries in front of them.

A smart person should understand that what he has and what his position is given are actually two different things.

the most appropriate and secure possession in life is always to stand in a position that matches your abilities.

you know that if you occupy a position that does not belong to you for a long time, you may be able to get a lot of dream things in a short time. But after all, it is a fantasy that floats on the surface, just like the moon in the mirror, which is broken when touched.

the most important thing in a person's life is not to be confused by ostentation and to lose his self-knowledge.


Germany does not match, there must be disasters

have heard the saying: "ambition needs the shackles of facts."

position will limit a person's thinking, rashly get his hands on things that are higher than his ability, and it is easy to slip up.

all kinds of scourges in life often arise from it.

during the period of the three Kingdoms, Zhong Hui became famous when he was young and was highly regarded by Sima Zhao.

he led the army to destroy Shu and became famous before he was forty years old.

then someone advised him: "General, now that you have done a great job, you should return to the mountains and forest and live like an immortal."

Zhong Hui felt that he had outstanding ability and had a large number of troops, so he did not have to succumb to Sima Zhao at all.

in this way, instead of retreating bravely, he rebelled.

at that time, he thought: "if something is done, you can win the world, or you can retreat to Shu, and be a vassal like Liu Bei."

but in fact, he is strong in Shuhan because Deng Ai's smuggling into Yinping cleared the way for him.

officers and men of the three armed forces were willing to follow his orders, not because of his ability, but because Sima Zhao gave him military power.

as a result, two days after Zhong Hui rebelled, he died in the army because he could not convince the masses and did not wait for Sima Zhao to ask for help.

there is a saying in the University: "if you are high, you will be in danger, and if you are complacent, you will overflow."

the greatest stupidity of a person's life is to be complacent with a little achievement, thus becoming blindly arrogant and coveting the position of others.

but in fact, other people are experiencing challenges that you can't imagine every day, not only are you incompetent, but you may even be doomed by your inflated ambition.

the most important thing is to have self-knowledge.

if a person stands in the wrong position, no matter how hard he tries, he will end up with disaster.

do not be proud of its merits, do not lose its position, can seek advantages and avoid disadvantages, and have a successful life.


recognize yourself and do a good job at the moment

Zhou Dongyu has won numerous awards since her debut. Everyone praises her acting skills and thinks she looks like anything.

one day, a director asked Zhou Dongyu to act in a costume film, thinking that her acting skills must be competent.

Don't want Zhou Dongyu to reject it decisively, she explained:

"the character setting is a rare beauty, but I don't have this unique temperament. It can't be made up for by acting, so I'd better choose the role that suits me. "

for the sake of remuneration and fame, many actors are forced to play unsuitable roles, eventually destroying the word-of-mouth that they have accumulated over the years.

Zhou Dongyu, on the other hand, still keeps a rare sobriety under her fame, and only plays her own suitable role. Because of this, her acting career is getting smoother and smoother.

Nietzsche once said:

the greatest wisdom in life is to find your place and recognize your role.

this does not mean that we should be content with the status quo and do not want to make progress.

but to see their own strengths and weaknesses, not to be eaten back by the rapidly expanding desire, first do a good job in the current role, make it a solid step, life can rise.

when he just graduated from Nankai University, Zhang Yiming joined a small company as a programmer.

many people feel that with his talent and famous school background, it is a waste in such a company.

however, he never thinks so. He not only does his job with high quality and quantity, but also takes the initiative to help solve the problems encountered by his colleagues.

soon, Zhang Yiming spoke to eachPeople are well aware of the modules in charge, so they are promoted to be in charge of the entire back-end program.

then, Zhang Yiming is responsible for leading a team, and then leading the whole department.

he regards every time he does a good job in his role as a process of internalization and growth.

later, he started his own business and used the experience and resources accumulated in different positions on the software he developed.

because of this, software such as Douyin and Jinri Toutiao came into being, and then developed rapidly and became popular all over the world.

if you don't accumulate steps, you can't reach thousands of miles; if you don't accumulate small streams, you can't become rivers and seas.

everyone yearns for lofty goals and dazzling achievements.

but all this must start with doing a good job in the current role.

less ambitious and more down-to-earth.

even though it seems unknown now, as long as you do it with your heart, you are saving up the power to rise from the ground in the future.


find your place

there is a sentence in the Niebur Prayer:

"God grant me serenity to accept what I cannot change, courage to change what I can change, and wisdom to tell the difference between the two."

in this ever-changing era, countless choices emerge every day. Only by knowing what you can and cannot do can you have a continuous and progressive life.

Don't take any chances

people often say: "the essence of success is equal exchange."

any location must have the ability to match it.

sometimes, it's not that we don't recognize ourselves, but we are seduced by interests when we know what our level is, and then take a chance to stand in a position that doesn't belong to us.

you know, all the gifts of fate have already been secretly priced, and they are yours and will never run away; if they are not yours, they will be returned eventually.

Don't take a chance on anything, only do things that match your own value, and your life will run endlessly in your efforts.

Don't overestimate yourself, don't underestimate the platform

some time ago, Ali's former employees were rated as "the most hated colleagues" by many companies and attracted a lot of attention.

in the past, people's first reaction to hearing "Ali employee" was awe-inspiring. Now, after he leaves that position, the situation is very different.

the reason is that people respect Ali to a large extent, and if employees do not have outstanding ability, they will still be devoid of people after all.

so don't overestimate yourself and don't underestimate the platform.

the dignitaries in front of people may just add splendor to the platform. If the platform wants to take it back, it can not even say hello.

distinguish which are given by the platform and which are accumulated by yourself, and try to go to those positions that contribute to self-accumulation.

only when you accumulate things that others can't take away can you have the tenacity of the gale that comes from east, west, north and south.

the platform gives you a chance, you can catch it, and when the platform is removed, you can hold on.

take root in the present, first slow down, then get up faster

writer Cai Lei mentioned a growth model of life.

in fact, life is not a continuous ascent, it is a process of jumping in stages.

only when we have accumulated enough strength in one position and encountered the right opportunity can we leap to the next stage of human life.

before the jump, it is a long or even invisible process of change.

this requires that after choosing a position, we should not aim too high, do our current role well, and do our job in a down-to-earth manner.

just as the Collection of gardeners says: "Flowers are sentimentally attached to the earth before they can have their moment of bloom."

after growing up on the right soil and achieving enough height in life, you can naturally see more scenery.
