Change My Life
All the people know that life is full of troubles, and actually it is a process of solving old troubles and waiting for the new ones to come - Change My Life introduction. Sometimes people will find the lives they have are not what they want. In fact they are facing a turning point at that particular time, either accept the current situation or find a way to change. Personally, I was in that situation too before I came to the United States, and what I did to change myself was to find what caused me to be not satisfied with the current situation, look for a new place to start a new life, and overcome my weaknesses in order to get myself ready for a new start.
First of all, when I realized it wasn’t the life I want to have, I would find the causes that made me be unsatisfied with my life. Only in this way I can know exactly what my problems are, so I could try t correct them if I want to change myself. For example, when I failed the Chinese University Entrance Examination, my parents were so disappointed about my performance and thought to send me to a private Chinese university to finish the college study in order to take over my family business. That was not the life I wanted because I was not interested in my father’s business at all.

The idea of changing me came to my mind at that time, so I started to look for the causes that made me fail in the exams. I noticed the reason was about attitude. Since I was tired of the Chinese education system, I lost the passion of studying rather than I wasn’t smart enough to follow the courses. In China, teachers only care about their students’ test scores rather than practical knowledge. In my mind, education system shouldn’t be in that way, so I was quite annoyed and tired of learning in that system.
After I found out the reason, I felt confident I could become a good student if I could change my learning attitude. Thus, the first step of changing me was quite successful as I found out the problem, and ready to take actions to solve it in order to reborn. After analyzing my problems, I realized the only way to get out of that system was to change the environment that is to study abroad. Even though my parents felt disappoint about me and not sure whether I could do it or not, after hearing my explanation and determination they decided to give me one ore chance to prove I could do it. Then I chose to go to the United States to polish myself because American education system is famous for teaching students practical knowledge and skills rather than only the theoretical staff. Thus, changing environment to study in the U. S. was my second step towards reborn. At that moment, I had already figured out the problem and got an opportunity to study abroad, the last step to change myself successfully was to overcome my weaknesses, otherwise all the steps I took were meaningless. Last step to be reborn was to overcome my weaknesses.
The first problem I need to correct was to change my attitude. When I was in high school, since I was tired of the system, I had no passion of studying at all. However, when I started to take the first class in America, I was impressed by professor’s teaching style which she applied the theoretical knowledge to our daily life. I was shocked by this teaching style completely, and decided to try my best to study well in this education system. Another one I needed to correct was laziness, which came out to me when I was in high school.
At that time I was lazy to learn anything in China. However, after experiencing the practical teaching style, I noticed the importance of learning which tied closely to my future and realized I need to get rid of the laziness which stopped me to improve myself. Right now I believe I have the right attitude towards studying and full of passion to study anything that is beneficial for my future. By overcoming my weaknesses, I changed my attitude towards studying and got ready to start a new page of my life.
In brief, from my personal experience I would say when I realized the life I had was not what I wanted, I would take three steps to change it. First was to figure out the problems in order to correct. Secondly, change the environment if possible so that to be ready to get a new start. Lastly, overcome the weaknesses which are found in the first step in the new environment. All in all, this method worked for me, and I really appreciated this method which helped me change myself successfully.
