Diligence Redeems Stupidity 勤能补拙
It is generally accepted that diligence is the mother of success. As the proverb goes, Diligence redeems stupidity. If you consider yourself is not smart enough, then you should make great efforts to make your dreams come true. In this world, there are many successful men in this world, some of them are scientists, some of them are superstars, and some of them are entrepreneurs. Behind their successes, they have made tremendous effort that ordinary people can barely imagine. Einstein once said, “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspirations.” This means one should put all his heart on the thing he wants to succeed.
Kobe Bryant, one of the most famous basketball players in this world. In his whole basketball career, he has won five champions. He is considered to be the second greatest player next to Michael Jordan. Once a journalist asked him what his key to success is. He said: “Do you know what the sky looks like in Los Angles at 4 a.m.? I know what it looks like at every morning.” Practice makes perfect. Kobe devotes himself to his career and finally reaches his goals. You may call him lucky. But good luck only favors those who are always well prepared and hard-working people.
If you want to do something, just do it. Chase after your dreams fearlessly. Remember, diligence redeems stupidity. Hard working and persistent will perform miracles.
