Success is difficult, but there's still an opportunity
29 December 2014 | by (Beijing, China) – See all my reviews

Before the end of this movie, I cried, cried twice. I deeply realized that it is never ever easy for an ordinary man to get huge success. But there is still some chance to help you get here only if you are open-minded to yourself and throw yourself into the business totally, work hard, delay gratification, you'll see success beckons to you. To implement that goal, you need to have an extremely clear understanding of yourself, such as what you want most out of life, what you are best in, what things you are really really want to do, what's the goal of your life and so on. Now then you have the direction, the rest of the way is pursuing it, straining all your nerves to it. Don't worry when there's no any joys, no social in your along way, hold on, finally, you'll can't help crying out because you made it.
