      Striving With Dreams –Lifelong Pursuit of Fulfillment

Good morning , ladies and gentlemen , it's a great pleasure standing here presenting a speech concerning the topic Pressure and Passion. Nowadays people's various desires are rising together with their life expectations. However, mental stress and physical pressure unavoidably force people to work harder and make extra efforts to realize what they wish.

While we're exposed to the fierce competitive society, what kind of attitude should we take? Strive with passion or give up with disappointment. The answer was uncertain before I figure it out finally .

In the first place, I’d like to ask everyone here a question: have you been seeking such life which offers adequate materials, happy family and healthy condition both physically and mentally ? If your answer is Yes, then I'm afraid you're going to have to sacrifice a lot before achieving them.

My statement can be demonstrated by  a recently released survey .It suggests several causes-the top one reason -sky-rocketing property which includes supporting family ,parents and children nursing ,social security and health concerns. price. The second reason comes to the employment competition, and last but not least is social relation establishments. But those are only major concerns of high-income people.

However, what’s worse, for those average -income groups, the situation is quite different and their concerns are simple but urgent too. They are desperate and helpless. Can people really tackle those pressing problems smoothly ?

Well, pausing here, I want to make my opinion clear-:we should strive and succeed with the help of passion and never yield to difficulties.

First of all , change pressure into inspiration  If we are able to see it as a way of inspiration , things will become different. There is one saying :things that are worth doing are worth doing well . Therefore , the pressure in that sense is reasonable  .

Secondly, finding solutions rather than complaining .Perhaps the way of finding solutions comes with hardship. But thinking positive is helpful to tackle problems more smoothly.

Every coin has two sides .So does pressure . It either leads you to brightness and darkness . Will too much pressure prevent people from persisting in striving ? Therefore, in the same breath , another problem come into being : fulfillment of dream. How can people balance between pressure and pursuit of dream ?

Firstly, should they simply struggle to make a living by leaving their long-established dreams alone ? Surely not . Dream is the best destinations of pressure .Dream is a beautiful wish for the future, an anticipation of life , a reminder of individual potential and respect toward value. Where there is a dream , there is hope and future.

Secondly , what I want to say is : all journey starts from beginning .Everyone has his or her dream . I have a dream too. That is to be a mass medium worker. As a start, I keep myself updated by checking news online regularly and keep listening to different kinds of radio programs .I also imitate announcers as to sound as professional as possible which is a basic requirement for an anchorman. It came to me achieving my dream really costs. It costs time ,efforts, passion ,enthusiasm , persistence and patience to conquer the pressure, and to be successful.

My dear friends, no matter what comes ahead , life is moving forward and with no pause. Let’s bear in mind , rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation. When pressure arrives with hostility, welcome with smile; when dream is blocked, leap, hop and jump and  then overcome .Thank you for listening .
