How to Enhance Mutual Trust in Our Society?

As modern society advances, we are growing more suspicious of each other. This is clearly reflected in our reaction to advertisements. Instead of seeing advertisements as a source of reliable information, we tend to doubt the truth they claim and always assume that the producers are trying to trick customers into buying their products.

One of the most serious consequences of such absence of mutual trust is the constant doubt and anxiety within our own minds. If we see everyone else as a potential enemy , we can no longer make new friends; if we regard all information passed on to us as lies, how can we make use of such sources effectively?

Mutual trust is the glue that holds human society together. As students, we should try to foster mutual trust and help build up a moral society by our own deeds. If we are honest to others and foster mutual trust, we shall soon see the difference.

My Views on Popular Sayings

To cultivate a creative mind, one needs to chip away one’s “mental locks ”. Some of the “mental locks ” are shaped by popular sayings, which sound so familiar to us that we tend to take them for granted. Instructive as they may be, these common

statements may restrict our freedom to think.

“Look before you leap! ” We make this remark to caution someone to think carefully before making a decision or taking an action. It may seem sound advice, but it may also put him or her in a passive position. He or she may just keep “looking ” around and without making a leap. Similarly, we may say to the same person, “Don ’t let the chance slip through your fingers! ” Then, the person may be motivated to act promptly, regardless of the consequences.

In either case, the person may fall victim to popular sayings. So, if we want to come up with a new idea, we must break up the “mental locks” that close our minds.

My View of a Team Player

A team player is someone who can work well with other people in a team. But it is not enough just to get along with others. A true team player must be more positive and constructive than just following the herd; he or she must also be able to play an active part in decision-making.

Our society demands team players because by gathering all our various strengths together, we can accomplish more in a shorter time. It is because of teamwork that most businesses are able to function properly.

To become team players we must learn to compromise. When our views conflict with the general view of the team we must restrain our egos and listen to what others say . We should learn how to deal with criticism in a mature way; be honest and be aware of others’ feelings.

When Facing Adversity

Throughout our lifetime we may encounter many adversities: unable to pay for the education, obstacles in studies and even physical disabilities. Whether we are rich or poor, intelligent or slow, adversity seems the constant companion of many of us.

In the face of adversity there are typically two reactions: one is to feel frightened and run away; the other, to face it with courage. But what happens next makes a big difference between the brave and the cowardly . Some people turn away from adversity without even an attempt to make things better; while others, though frightened emotionally or disadvantaged physically, manage to shake off the initial fear and take hold of their bootstraps to pull themselves out of the bad situations they are in.

We should choose the attitude of the latter because running away is not going to solve the problem. In addition, this attitude may lead one to acquire the habit of always thinking negatively and thus limit one’s growth and development.
