用生命影响生命

Use your life experiences to influence others’ lives

【影响】

对于“生命意义”,当代作家史铁生先生曾说过:“生命的价值在于以生命影响生命的过程。”若能将自身的人生经验与品德,通过一颗诚挚以及助人的大爱心态去传播,身体力行以自生命去影响另一个人的生命,让生命走入生命,那么,所有的不美好都有转变的可能性。

This classic Chinese proverb is the perfect example of what the Chinese culture teaches us when we were young – Lead by example. When I was young, both my parents use to tell me, “Yun, always remember to follow good examples, not bad ones”. And until today, it’s still in me. I’m still learning from people, showing people good examples of how one should be and lead by great examples – On a daily basis.

One should always remember – Whether or not you realise it, people around you, especially younger ones that may look up to you as an elder brother or sister; may be subjected to your influence on every thing you do – No matter how little they are.

If we show them courage, they will be courageous. If we show them leadership, they will lead by example. If we show them strength, they will be strong. But if we show them weakness, they will be weak. And if we show them fear, they will be fearsome.

Go forth today, and lead your peers by example.
