国旗下讲话 | 第11周：信念与理想，生活的希望
Dear leaders, teachers, and dear classmates，
Good morning everyone!Today, the title of my speech is “Belief and Ideal, the hope of life!””When a person feels the impulse to fly high, he will never be satisfied with climbing on the ground.” Helen Keller, a famous female writer, once said that her life was an unfortunate life, but she created a miracle of life in the misfortune.
Helen Keller is a deaf mute woman, but God has given her wisdom, and she also has ideals and beliefs. She lives in a silent world, but she graduated from Harvard University. She is physically disabled and mentally disabled, and with all her life’s strength, she runs and advocates to build charitable organizations for the benefit of people with disabilities. She has been selected as one of the top ten American heroes and idols of the 20th century.
In a sense, people do not live in the material world, but in the spiritual world, living in ideals and beliefs. For human life, to survive, only a bowl of rice and a glass of water are needed for each meal. But how can we live a delicious life? That is to rely on the spirit. In the spiritual world, one must have lofty ideals and firm beliefs. Ideals and beliefs, like raging flames, brought her out of darkness and stillness. Ideals and beliefs, like huge wings, helped her soar into the clouds. Ideals and beliefs turn poor people into millionaires, make people in the dark see light, make people in desperate situations see hope, and make dreams come true.
Next, I would like to tell you a story : After the rain, a spider struggled to crawl towards the already fragmented web on the wall. Due to the dampness of the wall, it climbed to a certain height and would fall off. However, it did not give up, but instead climbed up and down again and again.
At this moment, the first person saw it and sighed. He said to himself, “Isn’t my life like this spider? I’m too busy to get anything.” As a result, he became increasingly depressed and ultimately frustrated.
The second person saw it and said, ‘This spider is really stupid. Why don’t you climb around the dry place next to it?’? I can’t be as foolish as it in the future. So, in his future life, he always took shortcuts, and in the end, his intelligence was deceived by it, which also delayed his life.
The third person saw it and was immediately moved by the spirit of the spider’s repeated failures and battles. So, he became stronger. Who is this person? Do you know? He is known as Napoleon.
Classmates, we need to learn from which of the three above people, without a doubt. Of course, we need to learn from Napoleon, his perseverance and unyielding spirit. No matter what your current grades are, no matter what your foundation is, as long as you firmly believe and surpass yourself, you have a direction to strive for, a goal to strive for, and the motivation to live. Then, success will come closer to you day by day!
This concludes my speech. Thank you all!
