On the Importance of Diligence for People's Growth
As is known to all, every man has to work. The life of a lazy man is of no use to himself and to others. The man who is too lazy to work is the man who is more likely to beg or to steal. Every man should be diligent when he is young.
From my point of view，diligence is of vital significance in one's life and career. There are some reasons as follows. Firstly, industrious spirit is an indispensable quality that makes a person stand out, as most people are biologically endowed with the IQ in the similar level, with few being very outstanding or very low. Secondly, diligence leads to
accomplishments while laziness must result in failure. An idle man indulges himself in comforts and he is doomed to fail. Lastly, diligence helps remove ignorance, overcome difficulties, and enlighten the mind.
In one word, I hold the view that diligence is crucial to one‘s life. One must study hard when he is young so that he may make great progress, succeed in life and become useful to his country. Therefore, we say that diligence is the vital ingredient for one's growth.
