What is success? I think different people will have different answers. Some people think that success is earning a great deal of money or working in the government. Or success is nothing but we look for all the time. In my opinion, success is quite simple. It means you can live the life you want and you can feel happiness very often. Sometime, money cannot bring you happiness or satisfaction, and you can’t have the feeling of success. Because money is just the tool to achieve your goal but never the goal. Therefore, looking for what you really want and then work hard for it. Then you are close to success.什么是成功？我想这是一个仁者见仁智者见智的问题。有的人认为，赚很多的钱或者在政府部门任职就是成功，又或者成功并不是什么东西，但我们却对它孜孜以求。我认为，成功很简单，那就是你能过上你想要的生活，并能常常感觉到幸福。有的时候，金钱并不能带给你幸福感或满足感，那也就不能感觉到幸福了，因为金钱只是你实现目标的工具而不是终极目标。因此，知道自己想要的，然后为之努力，那你也就离成功不远了。
篇一：决定成功的三种性格 Three Personalities Lead to Success
There are no two identical people exist in the world, but most successful people are similar in many ways. Good character is the foundation of success. Most of successful people are modest, diligent and creative etc. In my opinion, being confident, honest, and persevere are the three important keys to the door of success.
There is an old saying that confident is the first step to succeed. Suppose that a person is not confident, how he gets trust from others. A singer singing in the stage without nervous means he is confident. Public speakers express their opinions to others without tension which also means he is confident. Confidence offers people courage to overcome difficulties, what’s more, if people believe themselves, they may meet more opportunities that they had never thought about.
The second key helps people succeed is honesty. There is no denying that most of friendships are based on honesty and most of businesses are based on friendship. Honest people are easy to get others’ respect and people often prefer to cooperate with the honest ones rather than liars. It’s obvious that no one could tolerate a friend always tell lies. China have a famous story which is about a shepherd boy who wants to play farmers and lie to them a wolf is coming. After he lies to them twice, a wolf is really appears, when he asks them for help, no one believe him anymore.
Beside what I talk about above, I consider that perseverance is an essential personality to people who want to succeed. Everyone will meet problems, but not everyone could insist. In fact, perseverance is another attitude which belongs to optimistic. A famous saying is that difficulty is like a spring which weakens in face of a strong-willed but strengthens in face of a faint-hearted. When people run into problems, as long as they persevere, they will be closed to success.
To conclusion, everyone has his personality. Kindhearted people make others feel warm, and humorous guys bring happiness to people; enthusiastic ones could easy be on good terms with others. Sometimes people’s personality decide who they are, even who they want to be.
篇二：成功的决定因素The Factors Lead to Success
When doing the same thing, some people success but some fail. There must be many factors leading that result. In my view, the most important factor is the difference of confidence, determination and sociability are the foundation and condition of success.
First of all, no matter who want to success, they must have confidence, as confidence is the basic need for success. If someone always thinks he can’t do this or that well, then he can’t finish it well. For example, when a person is being interviewed, if he doesn’t believe he can do that job well, how can he act believable, so how can the interviewers trust his ability? Therefore, the interview is obviously a failure. However, if a person is confident, he can receive the opportunity to prepare for every challenge easily, which makes success become closer.
In addition, confidence just the door for success, if someone wants to get into the house of success, determination is necessary. The determined meet difficulties always overcome it and insist to the end. On the other hand, if someone is not determined, he would give up when facing difficulty. For instance, when doing homework, the person who is not determined always can’t finish perfectly and even copy from others when he thinks that homework is hard to finish. However, the person who is determined always can finish it well, because he know what he really wants and he is able to carry on.
The last but not least is that no one can do anything well by themselves, so they need help. At that time, sociable is helpful. It is well-known that success is hard to reach. Therefore, people need others to help them. A sociable person can get help easily, as he has so many friends. On the other side, a person is not good at communication, when he gets in trouble, maybe no one helps him. So we can see the importance of sociability to success.
In a word, there maybe not only confidence, determination, and sociability are essential to success, but I think they are the most important ones, for they are the foundation and condition of success.
篇三：自信是成功的必备 Confidence Is the Way to Success
Lin Hao, in face of so great a catastrophe, did not evade but gave his hands to his classmates. It was his confidence and calmness that gave others the second life. I am proud of him. To be honest, Lin Hao is my little hero in my heart.
Bernard Shaw has ever said a word. "Those who have confidence can transform smallness into greatness and make mediocre things look beautiful''. In another word, self-confidence is the first step to success. Thus, no matter when and what, we do not allow ourselves to be discouraged. Lin Hao's experience tells us that confidence is very important to us. It also reminds me of my own experience during the first year of senior middle school. After I entered senior school, I found it really hard for me to learn math well. There were so many problems which I didn't understand that I did badly in exams. Both my parents and math teachers believed that I couldn't learn math well. One day I met a difficult problem which took me nearly an hour to work it out. Nonetheless，I realized that I was the only one in my class to work it out! That really built up my confidence in math. Finally I became very good at math and my math teacher was surprised by my progress. It was confidence that helped me overcome the difficulty.
If a person wants to be successful, the first thing to do is to get confidence, as success is the body of confidence.
The motivation to succeed comes from the burning desire to achieve a purpose. Napoleon Hill wrote, "Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve."
A young man asked Socrates the secret to success. Socrates told the young man to meet him near the river the next morning. They met. Socrates asked the young man to walk with him toward the river. When the water got up to their neck, Socrates took the young man by surprise and ducked(vt. 将……猛按入水) him into the water. The boy struggled to get out but Socrates was strong and kept him there until the boy started turning blue. Socrates pulled his head out of the water and the first thing the young man did was to gasp(vi.喘息) and take a deep breath of air. Socrates asked, "What did you want the most when you were there?" The boy replied, "Air." Socrates said, "That is the secret to success. When you want success as badly as you wanted the air, then you will get it.There is no other secret."
A burning desire is the starting point of all accomplishment. Just like a small fire cannot give much heat, a weak desire cannot produce great results.
篇二：TO Success: Opportunity or hard-working?
Every body wants to succeed. But when it comes to the question that which factor leads to success, opportunity or hard-work, different people will offer different answers.
Some people think that opportunity is the first factor leading to success. They hold the idea, as a proverb saying, “Man proposes, god disposes”. Because almost all successful people have good luck and have caught their valuable opportunities, they believe that opportunity is a leading condition of the success. If seizes and makes the best use of opportunity available, one can succeed surely. In summary, to them, chances and lucks play the most important role on the road to success.
However, others maintain that “no pains, no gains” .Without exerting oneself, one could never expect to achieve success in no matter what one is doing. As is known to all, there is no royal road to the summit of success. One is likely to succeed only when one has worked with whole-hearted devotion and perseverance. Those who are lazy, sloppy and indifferent to their work, those who never concentrate on work will definitely end in failure. On the whole, as far as they are concerned, hard-working is the decisive factor to success.
In my view, both hard work and opportunity eventually matters. They are inseparable from each other, and put together, they make a great success. Hard work is to luck what fish is to water, and can be seen as an interior precondition of success. It lays the corner-stone for building a house while luck serves to cement it, to make the building bricks adherent to one another. They are the twins that contribute to success together. They are the factors from within and without respectively. We must work hard, make efforts and get prepared. When opportunities come, meet and make full use of them. Only in this way can we succeed one day.
篇三：关于成功的建议 Some Advices about Success
I have some good advice for your work. If you can do the following things, you will succeed in doing everything.
Firstly, whatever you do, you must be punctual and hard-working. If you sow a good seed, you will get a good harvest. If the seed is in poor quality, the harvest will also be very bad. And if you sow nothing, you will get nothing at all. Nothing.
Secondly, you must be honest. As honesty is the moral tuition that everyone should have. If you treat other people friendly and sincerely, others will also respect you.
Thirdly, you must be tolerant to others, since no one is perfect in the world. Everyone has his own faults, but if you can see everything on other person's perspective, there will be no problem at all.
What's more, when you are in a big company, you should not only respect the leaders, but also get on well with the colleagues. Sometimes, you should try to please your boss, so that you could have more chances to be promoted.
Last but not the least, don't ignore the little things, because such a little thing will have a great effect on your life. So you should start yourselves at the bottom, in order to get enough working experience. As you have enough working experience, nothing you will be afraid.
篇四：性格决定成功 Disposition Decides to Man’s Success
As we all known, the man who wants to be success should have a good disposition. As the saying goes, “disposition decide to everything.” I remember a famous motto: there are no two identical people in the world, but the success people are similar in many ways. Exactly, good disposition is the foundation of success. From my point of view, I deemed it success should also rely on these factors: diligent, confident, humor. It can help us to open the door of success.
There is no denying that diligent is the first step to the success. As the proverb says, no pains, no gains. Absolutely, guess that a person without diligent, how can he get achievements. Many successful people have become famous in the world by their diligent. Therefore we should take diligence as a good habit rather than lazy at every time.
Edison said “confident is the mother of the success. There is no doubt that confidence is important to our daily life .If someone without confident, he will never succeed in the end of his life. If someone trusted himself, he would gained more chance to succeed. How could you get other’s trust if you didn't trust yourself?
In addition, humor plays an important role in our life. It’s obvious that a sense of humor can bring happiness to others and get involved to a group easily. Just like my friend who is an energetic and lovely boy. The boss and staff like him very much. Boss thinks highly of him in the company. Sometimes, we should learn to how express humorously. A sense of humor can create unexpected result.
From what has been mention above, a good disposition is an important factor to our success. Therefore, how to develop a good disposition is essential.
Opportunity and Success
Some deem that opportunity is the key to success. For example, those global business giants like Google owe their success to the huge opportunities they meet. Google's boom benefits from the frenzy of Internet. Another striking example is Zhang Liangying's overnight sensation. Super Girl Voice Contest, a golden opportunity for her, put the spotlight on her.
Others argue that intelligence and diligence outweigh opportunity. There is solely a Google around the planet. The Internet superpower gains from its co-founders' advanced technology and keen insight into the global internet market. Zhang Liangying demonstrated her distinguished talent and the very wide vocal range. For this reason, she left an favorable impression with judges and won a host of diehard fans.
In my eyes, success is strongly linked with both. The combination of these two factors breeds success. There are enormous opportunities beckoning us,. We must seize them and exert our all-out intelligence and ability.
在我看来，要想成功应该具备一下几个必要条件。首先，你要有非常专业的领域知识。如果想在一个方面取得成功，那么坚实的专业知识肯定是少不了的。就像sony的leader Ibuka和Morita精通电子技术，王安精通电脑方面的知识。其次，你要有敏锐的洞察力和开拓创新的精神。就像sony公司一样，如果不是Ibuka和Morita两个人extraordinary intuitive，和他们不断的创新，生产出符合消费者需求的产品，那么sony恐怕不会有今天的令人adulation地位。再次，你必须要对未来做好详细的规划。王安谈及他的成功时说道，他的成功也是他在他们成长的每一步所做的决定的结果。他对未来进行了预测，并指定了详细的计划。最后，你必须要具备吃苦耐劳的精神，坚持不懈的奋斗。任何一个成功的例子之中都缺少不了艰辛的努力和付出。正如sony的Ibuka和Morita，正是因为他们极力地向别人推销他们的产品和日复一日的艰苦努力，才使得sony的电子产品为世人所认识所推崇。同时，在通往成功的路上，难免会遇到挫折，在这个时候，你要能够禁得住压力，勇敢地继续前进，才终将走向成功。当然，取得成功还有很多其他方面的因素。例如好的运气，良好的交流能力，好的帮手等等。
The Way to Success
How to lead to success? Different people have different perspectives. Some people believe that success comes from taking risks and chances. While others believe that success is the result of careful planning. What is the key to success in the end ? I think the answer may be not unique, everyone has a special way to success individually.
In my opinion, to be successful should have the following necessary conditions. First of all, you need to have sufficient professional knowledge. If you want to be successful at one aspect, it is certainly indispensable to have solid expertise. As the leaders of sony, Ibuka and Morita, are proficient in electronics technology, and Wang An is proficient in computer knowledge. Secondly, you should have a keen insight and innovation spirit. Such as the sony company, without Ibuka’s and Morita’s extraordinary intuitive and their constant innovation, sony cannot produce so many products, which meet the desires of most consumers. Then sony probably will not have today’s enviable status. Furthermore, you have to do careful planning for the future. When Wang An said about his success, he said that his success is also the result of the decisions he made every stage of their growth. He predicted the future, and specified careful planning. Finally, you must have the spirit of hard-work and persistent struggle. Any lack of successful examples donot come from the hard-work and dedication. Sony's success is precisely the result of that Ibuka and Morita try their best to sell their products to others and work hard every day.It makes their electronic products world famous. Meanwhile, the road to success will inevitably encounter setbacks, at this time, you should be able to withstand the pressure, and to take heart of grace to move forward, then you will eventually succeed. Of course, there are many other aspects of the success factors. For example, good luck, excellent
communication skills, good helpers and so on.
Everybody longs for success. But success can be achieved only through talking about it, it requires real actions. I believe that as long as we have our own clear goals, and continuously work hard, everyone will get good results.
不要被书的名字所误导，《世界上最伟大的推销员》并不是讲解如何推销产品的，而是一本励志类书籍。该书以2000年前耶稣时代三位伟大的推销员柏萨罗、海菲、保罗的故事，引出了以神秘方式逐代相传的推销秘诀———从不示人的十卷羊皮。该书分为三个部分：“羊皮卷的故事”论述了十条成功原则，“羊皮卷的实践”讲述具体的实践方法即九个成功记录表，“羊皮卷的启示”讲述了十条成功誓言。“原则”、“方法”、“誓言”三部分环环相扣，作者为推销员———更确切地说是为每一个工作着的人，设计了一条走向成功的道路。这条成功之路的出发点是“爱心”。这是做人做事的根本，离开了“爱心”其他所谓原则都是无用的。从海菲把红羊毛毯子盖在洞穴里刚出生的婴儿身上，到第二卷羊皮中“我用全身心的爱来迎接今天”，都说明了这一点。爱的力量是无穷的，只有充满爱心的人，才能“珍惜自己的价值”，才能“笑遍世界”，才能走向成功。 这条成功之路的关键是“恒心”和“毅力”。该书列举的成功原则如养成习惯、控制情绪、珍惜时间、立即行动等等，看似简单，做起来也并不难，而真正难的是“持之以恒”（原则之一）地坚持下去，没有坚忍不拔的毅力，没有战胜自我的勇气，是不可能做到的。 这条成功之路的动力之源就是对成功的强烈渴望和坚定信心。该书认为：“成功更是一种精神状态”，“只有决心成功，失败永远不会把我击垮”。而我们平常人之所以失败，原因就在于“成功的愿望是虚假的”，“95％的人缺乏开发潜力的决心”，所以就没有动力走上或走完成功之路，沉溺在失败的苦海中怨天尤人。 这条成功之路的实质是“个人奋斗”。所谓成功，就是一个完善自我，实现自我，“发展自己的个性”，“实现自我价值”的过程。该书倡导：“使自己的个性充分发展，因为这是成功的一种资本”，“我独立特性，因而身价百倍”。这充分体现出该书作者奥格·曼狄诺（ O g Mandino）所在国家———美国人的价值观念。 该书所讲述的原则、誓言和实践方法，可以说是美国人个人奋斗成功经验的结晶，是美国人民族精神的一个缩影。对于处在社会转型期、正在与世界接轨的中国人来说，接受一些美国人的先进的思想观念，有利于克服我们长期封建历史遗留的民族劣根性和计划经济体制养成的惰性，激发人们奋发向上、拼搏进取、开拓创新的精神状态。但令人绝对不能接受的是，该书把“祈祷”上帝作为成功的第十条原则，借以宣扬美国人的宗教信仰和生活方式。实际上美国人的成功靠得是“个人奋斗”，而与“祈祷”上帝是毫无相关的。《国际歌》早已告诉人们：“从来就没有什么救世主，也没有神仙皇帝，要创造人类幸福，全靠我们自己。”我认为，如果把“祈祷”改为“静心”，那么该书设计的成功之路就更完美了。诸葛亮的“宁静致远”，无论何时何地都是为人处事的重要准则。在浮躁的心态下，人们看到的事物是失真的，情绪是失控的，行为的结果也往往是失败的———正所谓“人生不如意事十有八九”。只有把心静下来，头脑才会清醒，才能按客观规律而不是凭感情、情绪去办事，才能真正“控制住自己”成为自己的主人，从而在成功之路上奋勇前进。“静心”对中国人来说太重要了。

10. The road to success. The Road to Success (英汉对照)
It is well that young men should begin at the beginning and occupy the most subordinate positions. Many of the leading businessmen of Pittsburgh had a serious responsibility thrust upon them at the very threshold of their career. They were introduced to the broom, and spent the first hours of their business lives sweeping out the office. I notice we have janitors and janitresses now in offices, and our young men unfortunately miss that salutary branch of a business
education. But if by chance the professional sweeper is absent any morning, the boy who has the genius of the future partner in him will not hesitate to try his hand at the broom. The other day a fond fashionable mother in Michigan asked a young man whether he had even seen a young lady sweep in a room so grandly as her Priscilla. He said so, he never had, and the mother was gratified beyond measure, but then said he, after a pause, "What I should like to see her do is sweep out a room." It does not hurt the newest comer to sweep out the office if necessary. I was one of those sweepers myself.
Assuming that you have all obtained employment and are fairly started, my advice to you is "aim high". I would not give a fig for the young man who has not already seen hilf the partner or the head of an important firm. Do not rest content for a
moment in your thoughts as head clerk, or foreman, or general manager in any concern, no matter how extensive. Say to yourself, "My place is at the top." Be king in your dreams.
And here is the prime condition of success, the at secret: concentrate your energy, thought, and capital exclusively upon the business in which your are engaged. Having begun in one line, resolve to fight it out on that line, to lead in it, adopt every improvement, have the best machinery, and know the most about it.
The concerns which fail are those which have scattered their capital, which means that they have scattered their brains also. They have investments in this, or that, or the other, here, there, and everywhere. "Don't put all your eggs in one basket" is all wrong. I tell you "put all your eggs in one basket, and then watch that basket". Look round you and take notice; men who do that do not often fail. It is easy to watch and carry the one basket. It is trying to carry too many baskets, that
breaks most eggs in this country. He who carries three baskets must put one on his head, which is apt to tumble and trip him up. One fault of the American businessman is lack of concentration.
To summarize what I have said: Aim for the highest, never enter a bar room; do not touch liquor, or if at all only at meals; never speculate; never indorse beyond your surplus cash fund; make the firm's interest yours; break orders always to save owners; concentrate; put all your eggs in one basket, and watch that basket; expenditure always within revenue; lastly be not impatient, for, as Emerson says,
"no one can cheat you out of ultimate success but yourselves."
Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay. You should start your essay with a brief description of the picture and then express your views on the importance of doing small things before undertaking something big. You should write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words。
Success is something that many people strive for, but that not everyone among us attains. When we consider the various factors that play a role in determining whether a person is successful in life, ambition and action are
wtwo of the first to come to mind. Just as American writer Napoleon Hill put it, “If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way. ”
Numerous examples can be given, but this will suffice. A young person who aspires to be a great chef might decide to buy some cookbooks, spend
weekends practicing and refining his culinary techniques, or take on a part-time job at a local restaurant. On the other hand, if he simply end up spending all has spare time surfing the Internet or playing video games, neither of which would give him the skills or experience needed to succeed。
In conclusion, doing great things and doing small things are both essential in determining whether we flourish or fall behind. The former gives us the drive and direction to move forward, while the latter enables us to implement our vision and “make things happen”. In combination, they represent the winning formula that will put us firmly on the road to success。
