Dear teachers and students，
Good morning! Today, the topic of my speech is “learn to obey.”
The ant is a tiny creature, but it has the power that does not match its form.
This kind of insignificant creature sometimes makes waves. It is such a race that can make the dike of thousands of miles collapse; it is such a race that can cross the sea of fire and the vast ocean with very little sacrifice in exchange for the continuation of the race.
What makes this race complete these seemingly impossible miracles?What makes this race cross the test of history? That is the spirit of group and the consciousness of obedience.
We humans are social animals, so we need collective power. Therefore, we should learn to obey the collective. Obedience is a kind of virtue, but many people misunderstand it, and they are not convinced by the word “obedience”. They think that obedience will damage their dignity and personality.
But in fact, it is not a bad thing to obey the norms of beneficial growth. It is not wrong to publicize one’s personality, but to obey what should be obeyed. It can also reflect one’s quality and morality.
So why should we obey? In fact, the purpose of our obedience is to share a common vision. For example, obeying the class is to make the class more united.
There are many ways of obedience. We need to give up our personal opinions and obey the values and instructions of the class. Of course,this obedience is definitely not blind obedience. If there are different opinions, they can be put forward or reflected to the class teacher and class collective in the appropriate place and time, and in an appropriate way.
Students should know, what is the bounden duty of soldiers? The answer is: obey. Absolutely obey. When we obey the arrangements of groups, classes, schools and organizations, we should be as obedient as soldiers.
There are four criteria for obedience
2.There is no face for obedience. In the face of instructions, you should make fewer excuses, take more actions, and respond positively. Don’t be full of complaints and don’t be silent and refuse to comment;
2.Obedience should be straightforward, without scruples, cumbersome, without coordination, without running in, and be obedient with all one’s strength and speed
3.Accept first, then communicate, execute first, understand in execution, and implement in understanding. Some people always think that they can’t do it, but you think “infeasible” is just your judgment. The reason why you assign a task to you includes the judgment of most people. You can accept the task first. If there is a problem in the implementation process, you should communicate with the collective more, and you should not give up immediately.
4.Follow orders. Immediate action is a spirit of obedience, not a moment of procrastination, but to develop a habit.
Therefore, we should not be “peacocks” with self admiration. Only by truly obeying the collective and integrating into the collective can we better realize our own value of life.
Thank you for listening!
