An important lesson in my life

The will is exercised here, the mind is washed here, and the behavior is regulated here. This is an important lesson in my life——military training. On the TV, the neat and mighty army’s lineup make me envious, the neat place made me excited, and the standard and powerful movement made me feel upset. I am looking forward to my first military training in my life. I hope this day will come soon. In China, on August 26, 2016, I finally welcomed this day when I was in Grade 9.

Watching TV, the soldiers walked so easily and neatly, the posture was so beautiful and standard. However, when I really practiced it, I felt hard. This seemingly ordinary and arduous training made all of our classmate’s physical and mental strengths extremely experienced. The sun is like a big fireball and it ruthlessly roasted us. After a while, my sweat dripped down my forehead, my feet began to numb, and my hands were hurting. Standing in the military position, stepping forward, repeating the practice over and over again, so that my legs seem to have been filled with the lead as if I did not listen to my call, always trembled. The hot sun is honing our will, and the hot sports field is testing our endurance. However, we stubbornly persisted, no one complained, no one fell behind, we defeated the sun’s roasting, and defeated the disturbing fatigue. We were proud of ourselves. When the whole body was wet, we gradually matured; in the arduous military training, we throw away the fragility and put on the strong armor. Our perseverance is gradually revealed, and our will is gradually strengthened by military training!

Military training is hard, boring, but our body has become stronger and stronger. When we practiced, we once again showed our patience, persistence, and tenacity. When I kneel down, my whole body weight was on my right foot. After a while, my right foot was numb. If at this time my right foot can move freely, if I can stand up at this moment, if… I have a lot of beautiful assumptions in my mind, but I still stick to the end. When I slowly stood up, my feet seemed to lose consciousness. But I am gratified that I have come up with my tenacious perseverance. Because I believe that persistence is victory, persistence is warm spring sunshine, it can melt winter frost; persistence is summer green, gestating autumn prosperity; persistence is autumn fruit, it shows good luck in winter; persistence is winter Snow, it is a sign of spring hope. Hold on for a minute and the victory will be under your feet.

Military training taught me strong will, military training taught me normative behavior. It is a very bitter movement to lift the foot and keep one position for a long time. In 2 minutes, my feet began to shake, and the raised feet slowly hang down. At this time, for me, this is very tormented! But my feet didn’t touch the ground, even though it was so painful at the moment. Finally, we successfully passed the test of the instructors. In the formal practice, the training slogan echoed the slogans of the students: “One, two, three, four…” I learned to face the courage in the face of pain. In the midst of suffering, I learned to overcome it.

Military training is a precious and rare experience. It has always been written into my memory and has become an indelible part of me. In fact, hardship is the cradle of your success. Perseverance is a kind of power. It gives me motivation and support when it is difficult. It gives me eternal wealth and strength in my life journey. As long as the light of perseverance in the heart is not dim, the leaves of life will never rot.
