#168 "Fortune favors the bold" Your thought?

0

    こんにちは!

    最近は朝晩が冷え込んで、いよいよ本格的な秋ですね。

    気温の変化に体がついていかず、風邪をひかれている方も多いのではないでしょうか?

    私も、喉が痛い朝が度々あります。皆さま、くれぐれもご自愛ください!

     

    "Fortune favors the bold" Your thought?

     

     

    Basically, I agree with that sentence. Being positive is better than being negative to do everything. Whether the result after doing it positively is a success or failure, you maybe obtain something that is useful in your life.

     

    However, you have to think about the meaning of the word “bold” carefully. Just challenging something without any thought is not called “bold”. Imagine, you just start a role-playing game and you are a hero of the game. You don’t have any sword, any armor nor any other items to recover your health. No one would think you could defeat the final enemy.

     

    I think to be bold is the same as how confident you are in preparing. In the example I mentioned before, after you raise your level and have strong equipment, then you get the chance for victory. Also, you should think about risks in the case of failure in real life, because restarting after failure in real life is not as easy as in games.

     

    Without preparing to success nor thinking about risks, it’s far from “bold”, it’s just called “reckless”.

    This was a good essay. the example of a role-playing game definitely acts as a metaphor for the topic.

     

    I agree that it is better to proceed carefully and thoughtfully before taking on a challenge. Maintaining a positive attitude no matter what the outcome would be the best approach. We can always learn and grow from any situation.

     


    Tip: Although “get” is a useful verb, in formal writing it is better to avoid using it. English speakers only use “get” for spoken conversation.
