Competition

竞争

Once my mother told me a story. In Africa, when an antelope wakes up every morning, the first thing it thinks about is, “I must be able to run faster than the fastest lion, or I will be killed. ”At the same time, a lion wakes from his dream. The first thing the lion thinks about is, “I must be able to catch the slowest antelope, or I will starve to death.” So, almost at the same time, the antelope and the lion get up and start running toward the rising sun.

有一次,母亲给我讲了个故事。在非洲,一只羚羊每天早晨醒来的时候,它想到的第一件事就是:“我必须跑得比最快的狮子还要快,否则我就会被杀死。”与此同时,一只狮子从睡梦中醒来。它想到的第一件事就是:“我必须捉住跑得最慢的羚羊,否则我就会饿死所以,几乎在同时,羚羊和狮子起床了,开始迎着太阳跑。

This is life: full of chances and challenges. Whether you are an antelope or a lion, you must go ahead when the sun rises. For students, it is just the same. If we do not study hard, sooner or later, we will fall behind the other students. At first, I did not know what the word “exam” meant. Later, I knew an exam was a kind of competition. In competitions, there are always winners and losers. As I grew up, I got to know competition well. In one's life, there must be competitions, so people can improve.

这就是生活:充满了机遇和挑战。不论你是羚羊,还是狮子,太阳升起的时候,你都必须行动起来。对于学生,情况也是如此。如果我们不努力学习,我们迟早要落后于其他同学。起初,我不理解“考试”这个词是什么意思。后来我明白了,考试就是一种竞争。在竞争中总是有胜利者和失败者。我慢慢长大了,自己也渐渐弄清了竞争的意思。在人的一生中,必然有竞争,这样人们才能进步。

Each time I saw children playing games, and heard their laughter, I wished I were that age again. However, I remembered my parents’ words: “You must work very hard in order to have a good future." So I picked up my pen and began to study hard again.

每当我看到孩子们玩游戏、听到他们的笑声的时候,我多么希望自己能再次回到他们的年纪。可是,我记得我父母的话:“要有好的前途,你必须下功夫干。”于是我拿起了笔,又开始努力学习。

I was still not sure what competition really meant. One day. I was taking part in an English-speaking competition. When I went to the stage, I saw other students looking at me kindly. I suddenly knew what competition was. It is not as cruel as my teacher and parents told me. In fact, competition is the opposite: it is kind and necessary.

我当时还不能确定竞争的真实含义。有一天,我参加了英语演讲竞赛。当我走上讲台的时候,我看到别的同学友好地看着我。我突然知道了竞争是什么。它不是像父母和老师告诉我的那样残酷。其实正相反, 竞争是善意的,是必要的。

I learned a lot from realizing this fact. Now I understand more about the world. Competition is important for us all.

意识到这个事实,我学到了许多。现在我对这个世界了解得更多了。竞争对我们所有的人都很重要。
