The power of turning (suggested collection)

/August 2022

Lu you wrote in Journey to Shanxi Village: "it looks like there is no road, but there is another village around the corner."

that is to say, when we encounter difficulties in doing things and there seems to be no way out, we might as well change our thinking and try again in a different direction, so that we may see new hope.

on the road of life, learning to turn is understandably a kind of top wisdom.


I have seen such a story before my eyes.

several people went fishing by boat, and when they returned, they accidentally lost their way.

at this time, everyone was in chaos, there was no star in the sky, there was no light to show the way, and they didn't know how to sail the boat.

some people remember that they have brought a lamp, so they turn on the light and shine it around, but in vain, they can't see anything at all.

just then, an old man on board said, everybody turn off all the lights. Everyone was confused, but there was no better way to do what the old man said.

the lights went out, and it was dark all around. The old man said, "Don't be afraid. Please wait quietly."

after a while, everyone's eyes slowly got used to the darkness, and they were surprised to find that it was not dark all around, but there was a light somewhere far away.

it turns out that this is the light of the seaside town, and that's where they're going back.

there is a saying under the Book of changes: "if you are poor, you will change; if you change, you will change; if you change, you will be familiar with it for a long time."

in life, there is not only one solution to any problem. When we cannot solve it with our inherent thinking, we need to think about it from a different perspective.

anxiety and helplessness can only make us trapped in the same place and there is nothing we can do about it. Only by calming down and changing our minds can we have a chance to see other breakthroughs.

there is a long way to go in life, but there is no way to find another way.


There is a Jewish gold miner, Levi Strauss, who starts his work expectantly every day, but always ends in disappointment.

he found that there were more and more gold prospectors, and he was not the first batch of gold prospectors, so it was a bit difficult to make money. He saw that it was very inconvenient for gold prospectors to buy daily necessities, so he went directly to wholesale daily necessities to workers to make money.

as expected, his daily necessities business was booming and soon made money back.

one day, a worker came to buy daily necessities. The worker complained: "this broken place costs too much trousers, and there is no time to mend them even if they are torn."

suddenly, Levi had an idea. Isn't the canvas he wants to pitch his tent a wear-resistant fabric? So he followed the example of a herdsman in the western United States to make a kind of sturdy and wear-resistant overalls and sold them to the miners.

the former overalls of the first pair of jeans were born, and soon spread to the whole country and even the world, and Li Wei also changed from an unknown gold miner to a "jeans king".

Lu Xun said, "only those who are not afraid have a way."

work is not always plain sailing. In the face of many obstacles, we should dare to challenge and break through the new situation.

Li Wei would not have been called the jeans king if he had been in the brigade of gold prospectors like many gold prospectors.

in fact, every brave turn is a new opportunity, and the opportunity is often hidden around these people who have the courage to change.

mindset turns, the good and the bad will be exchanged

We know that even two people who are passionately in love will have a lot of conflicts because of the fine pieces of firewood, rice, oil and salt after marriage.

Grandma Hengzi in "worth it in the World" married an otolaryngologist at the age of 27. Before marriage, she was introduced by a friend as "very nice".

it was only after marriage that I found that I had been "fooled". The husband has no problem with his character and works conscientiously at work, but he likes to drink as soon as he gets off work, takes care of the daily expenses of the family, and spends all his salary on treats, meals and drinks.

Grandma Hengzi put the divorce agreement in front of her husband again and again, and each time the husband would admit his mistake and say he would change, but soon he would pick up the wine bottle.

Grandma Hengzi said, "if you do everything possible to change others for years or decades, you will only get yourself into trouble."

so Grandma Hengzi changed her mind and began to think about how to make her family life happy without changing her husband.

Flaunt our attire purple bridesmaid to display your unique beauty and charm. Stop searching from over-priced retailers and buy now.

she decided to work hard and didn't expect any income from her husband. And make a plan to apply for divorce until the children get married. She usually relieves some of her emotions by saying bad things about her husband to patients.

but after achieving her goal, she found that her husband became gentle and drank less. Grandma Hengzi thinks divorce is too troublesome.

I have heard such a saying:

there will never be two people who are 100% right, let alone a perfect marriage. Those seemingly perfect marriages are spent in mutual tolerance and tolerance.

in a relationship, it is often futile to change others. Wise people know how to turn in time and think about how to make themselves happy and happy.

make a turn in life and experience different lives

once the American blockbuster "Superman" was broadcast, it caused a sensation all over the world. As a result, Christophe, who played "Superman", became very popular and his career reached the pinnacle of his life.

but not for long. In May 1995, Christophe unfortunately fell off his horse in a fierce equestrian competition and was never able to stand up again. After high paraplegia, he had to live in a wheelchair.

it's hard for a person to fall from a peak to a trough.Accept the truth, so the first thing he said when he woke up from his coma was: "Let me be free as soon as possible!"

later, in order to make him feel better, his wife drove him out on a trip. Once, the car was walking along the winding mountain road in the Rocky Mountains. The mountain road was curved and the road turned. The words "turning ahead" hit his brain again and again, and he suddenly realized that it was not the end of the road, but the time to turn.

he had new hopes for his life, and after that, he began to work as a director, try to write, and raise money for people with disabilities. He said he thought he could only be an actor, but there were so many possibilities.

looking back on his mental journey, he said:

No one knows what to do next in his life and what will happen tomorrow. Today's glory does not represent the glory of a lifetime, and today's predicament does not explain the trough of a lifetime.

when you are at a low ebb, you have an upward heart to meet difficulties, and when you are brilliant, you keep a low profile and empty yourself. Only in this way can you have the courage to face a different life.

there is no dead end in life. When you can't go on, make a turn like Christopher Levi and continue to live your wonderful life in a different way.

I have heard a saying: "Water can reach the sea because it can skillfully avoid all obstacles and keep turning."

there is no road in the world that can go straight to the end. Always keep your mind flexible, change direction when it's time to change lanes, respond to ever-changing changes, and always survive.

there are no hurdles that cannot be crossed, only bends that cannot be turned.
