One day, I had such a terrible play of table tennis that some members showed their unwillingness of playing with me and even some of them criticized my bad playing style and practice.
Although I was unhappy about my downward tendency and the club members’ behavior, I think I should accept the poor performance since being a professional in Pingpong is not my choice at present. It is ordinary that people never become excellent players without playing and practicing regularly, especially without obsession about it. Another thought comes to my mind that I shouldn’t be a mediocrity forever, I need to be an expert in at least one field.
To contemplate to my life, currently, English not Ping pong, is what I need to master in. It awards various meaningful factors to my life and my family. English is the subject that we teach to get income every day, our love and passion for studying and working, a valuable tool of broadening knowledge and skills, that I just name a few. Therefore, certainly, English is the field that I need to be a guru.
Linking back to the comments of the table tennis club’s members, that to play well, I have to be obsessive about it. Moreover, eager for learning also a characteristic needed for skill’s improvement. They told that I need to learn from other people’s performances and also have to research everything about it on the Internet. Not only play in the club, playing alone at home in front mirrors also required. Thinking of them, I see those are all the things required for mastering any skill, not only Ping pong. Therefore, to become an English professional, I must devote all of my effort and time on studying English, dismiss everything not involves in it.
From now on, I will spend all of my time on working and studying English to approach my target – become an expert in English. I never accept to be a mediocrity forever. I think the first step is that I need to get 8.5 scores in Ielts, that I must concentrate on studying to get it in one and a half year more.
Even though there are many hurdles on the way to success, I will always remind me a motivational sentence:
"There is a will, there is a way" “We May Encounter Many Defeats But We Must Not Be Defeated.”- Maya Angelou
