In the untouched area of the Andes Plateau in South America at an altitude of more than 4,000 meters, there is a flower called Puya Flower, which lasts only two months, and it is very beautiful when the flowers bloom. However, who would have thought that it had waited for 100 years for the two-month flowering period.
In the past 100 years, it has stood quietly on the plateau, hurricane and rain, collecting the radiance of the sun with leaves, and taking the earth’s nourishment with roots… Just waiting silently, waiting for the shocking moment of life after 100 years, waiting for When the climber is exhausted, his eyes are bright.
For Puya, waiting is a beautiful insistence. In the real world, what people lack is the perseverance of Puya. It is characterized by low-handedness, high-spiritedness, and only after the success, neglecting or neglecting the efforts and waiting before success.
In the 19th century, William Osler, a student at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, was puzzled by his life. He had great ideals and longed for success. The superior little things around him didn’t make much sense. The ordinary life was dull and boring, and the results went from bad to worse.
The teacher of William Osler recommended him to read an enlightenment book written by the philosopher Carlyle. In the careless browsing, he suddenly found a sentence in the book: “The first thing to do is not to look at the distant targets, but to do the most specific things at hand.” He realized, yes, no matter how far-reaching ideals. It takes a little bit of realization; no matter how big the project is, it needs to be brick-and-mortar. The young William Osler began to bury his head and graduated with honors. After graduating, I went to a hospital as a doctor, treated every patient seriously, and soon became a local famous doctor and was awarded the Jazz title.
Life is a process of struggle and a process of waiting. Because life will not be a horse, it will not always be proud of the spring breeze. In the face of too many dissatisfaction, unsatisfactory and even frustration and frustration, what we need is a peace of mind. Like Puya, we will gather strength in waiting and finally achieve a splendid bloom.
