Q: In our lifetime, we may unavoidably come across moments when we have to make critical decisions, which typically based on our life plan or vision for the future. The trouble is, for most graduates, there is no such plan or vision. We mindlessly follow the masses, and ultimately go through the throes of regretting our inactive youth after several decades. Hence it is significant for us graduates to listen to our hearts, precisely determine the goal we really want to reach and exert ourselves vigorously to turn(could be harness?) it into reality. Saying“I know the appearance of Los Angeles at 4 am every day”, Kobe Bryant is a superb example. To get the championship, he pours out all efforts.
In a word recognizing ourselves is the pyramidal cornerstone for the correct choice towards a meaningful life. Don’t let the noise of others drown out our inner voice. Only by learning to listen to the inner voice can we realize self-worth.

There is must be a lot of mistakes.
