Hello! Good evening!晚上好!I’m so happy to see you. I’m树华, and it’s almost time to say good night.

哈喽!晚上好!很开心见到你。我是树华,快到了说晚安的时候。

 

But first, let’s have a chat.

可是我们先聊会儿吧。

 

Anna Zuo, in our WeChat group, asked me about the power of persistence,常性之力量。

Anna Zuo,我们微信群里的朋友,问了我关于常性之力量的问题。

 

I think persistence is one of the post powerful things in the world. Actually, it’s one of the most powerful things in the universe! I mean, think about it: with persistence, a small plant can grow into a huge tree. With persistence, a river can change the shape of the Earth!

我觉得常性是世界上最有力量的东西之一。其实它是宇宙里最有力量的东西之一!你想一想,有了恒心,一个小小的植物能长成一棵壮大的树。只要有毅力,一条河能改变地球的地面!

 

But the funny thing is: persistence is not very interesting. It’s not very fun or surprising. When people ask me how I learned Chinese they expect some wonderful trick or surprising new idea, but the real answer is kind of boring: it’s just persistence! I just learned a little bit every day, and after a long time, I could communicate. Bit by bit, piece by piece, word by word, day by day.

可是有趣的是:常性不是特别有趣,不是很欢乐或者有惊喜的。别人问我是怎么学中文的,TA们平时在期待什么精彩的手段或者新奇的启发,可是最真实的回答还是很无聊:就是常性!我没天学了一点点,然后过了很长时间以后,我就能交流了。点点滴滴,一块再一块,一个字接一个字,天天坚持。

 

You know, sometimes, I think we worry about speed too much. We want to do everything quickly. We want to finish everything right now. We feel like if we can’t do amazing things right now, then we’re not good enough. We get excited when someone promises to teach us something very quickly. But remember: amazing things take time. A little bit of effort over a long time can make amazing things happen, and that’s the power of persistence.

你知道吧,我有时候觉得我们太看重“速度”。我们想要每一件事都能搞定得非常快,想要能够立刻马上做完任何一件事。我们觉得,如果现在做不到什么精彩的事情,那我们永远跟不上。别人说能神速叫我们一个新的技巧我们很容易激动,可是一定要记住:精彩的事情都是需要时间的。一点点的付出,如果能持续很长时间的话,就能带来不可思议的成就。这就是常性之力量。

 

What about you? What do you think about persistence? I want to know, but now it’s time to say goodnight. So, goodnight!

你呢?你对常性有什么想法?我很想知道,可是现在就到了要说晚安的时候了。所以,晚安!

    来自美国的周树华 回复 @晴心蕙梓: It's really true! Learning music is the same. People feel like it's "hard" because they can't do it on the first try. But it's not "hard," it just takes persistence and time!

    Yes. I agree that persistence is pretty significant. In career, you could also notice that those who are finally successful are the ones who can persist in their goal as always. The entrepreneurs also need such kind of good quality.

    I think persisrence makes our world better for we can see the process and that makes us wise. And I think if we really love something, then persistence is not difficult.

    Josh, Thank you so much for answering my question. I definitely agree with your opinion. “Persistence is one of the most powerful things in the world and universe. Amazing things take time. ”There is a Chinese saying 有志者事竟成,that's really true.
