Be Brave to Take the First Step

Be brave to take the first step An unforgettable

An unforgettable xperience which is very special for me last year. My cousins and I went to Macau——a combination of east and west cultural city. We have long heard of the famous challenge project there from TV. It said Macau has a great challenge project integrating recreation, challenge, adventure and stimulation, which is 233 meters high from the Macau tower called bungee jumping. We went directly to the Macau tower as soon as we arrived at Macau. During the way on the bus, my heart's beating faster, I expected to jump very much, while at the same time I felt a little afraid and worried.

An unforgettable xperience which is very special for me last year. My cousins and I went to Macau——a combination of east and west cultural city. We have long heard of the famous challenge project there from TV. It said Macau has a great challenge project integrating recreation, challenge, adventure and stimulation, which is 233 meters high from the Macau tower called bungee jumping. We went directly to the Macau tower as soon as we arrived at Macau. During the way on the bus, my heart's beating faster, I expected to jump very much, while at the same time I felt a little afraid and worried.

The tower was really very high, it seemed to be scraping the skies. You could even see the almost Macau if reached its top. There are two main floors in the whole tourism tower, the 58th floor was for indoor sightseeing and the 61th floor was for outdoor sightseeing and play thrilling games such as bungee. When I recognised how high the tower was, I can't help shuddering and felt more frightened. We wen up by electrical elevator, it rose at a speed of 5 meters per second, my cousins told me that’s the world’s fastest elevator speed.

We came to the 61th floor firstly, “OMG”,you know what, the ground is made of crystal clear glass. A gust of wind blowed to us, and mixed with some little rain. You can imaged what a terrible scene at that time. What we could do if there was an accident! I was really nervous and my hands tightly hold guard bar. There was a voice in my heart“I can not jump, it’s so high and terrible! ” I want to quit! But there came a foreigner girl who had already prepared to jump. She seemed 20 years old, and jump calmly with smile.

Even though she said nothing to me, I got great encouragement from her. And my cousins inspired me “the goal we come here is to challenge ourselves, and it will be a pity if coming with out jumping”. Yes, they were right, I should be confidence with myself and bravely overcome my internal fears and doubts. My worries disappeared soon, wear the equipment and checked if safety belt was OK. To be honestly, my pulse throbbed in my throat as I step to the rooftop. But it’s impossible to get back. While I told myself : Since I choose to challenge myself, I should be brave to face and do it.

I count in my head three, two, one, go! I took my first step in front of the eyes of visitors. When the falling stoped, my cousins motioned to take photos for me. I turned around with a smile face to the camera. The time during bungee in the sky was very wonderful, you could enjoy the pleasant scenery of Macau. When the game was over, I felt a huge relief. I think there are many challenges and difficulties in our life, we can see beautiful scenary which ordinary person can not see just as long as you overcome your demons and bravely take the first step.

Be brave to try is the way to success. Scientists can change the world, Famous host can speak frankly with assurance in the program, Stars can perform excellently on the stage... But do you know how they to take their first step? Which they have in common is: have the courage to try. Human potential is unlimited, as long as work hard, as long as have the courage to try, there exist hope of success. The man who are afraid to climb mountains, could only wander in depression; Having the courage to open the way for others, always walk in the front.

If a thing without difficulty, there also would be no opportunity to grow, so we should brave to try to face difficult things. Tomatoes now become many people’s favourite food in the world, but who knows it also has a tortuous experience. Once upon a time, the tomato originally grown in Peru's forests. But it looks gorgeous attractive, so people that time do not eat it because they regard it as a poisonous thing. While later In the 19th century, people who named Robert brought some tomato seedlings and plant them in New Jersey. But sell no tomato at all, because others regard them as poisonous fruits.

So Robert have to announce to the whole town people: he will eat 10 tomatoes in public to see if contains poison. People in the town was frightened by the Robert's utterance. A doctor says he will be died by his foolish. At 12 noon, Robert appeared in public. He is wearing a black dress, smiling, stepped onto a stage. Then, he took out a small basket tomatoes and display to public. After thousands of pairs of eyes’s confirmation, the fruit is not fake, he bite the tomatoes under the eyes, and chewing loudly praised the flavor of the tomatoes.

In a short time, 10 tomatoes were eten up by Robert. And he stood on the steps safely. People gave warm applause to him. Robert used his own experience to prove that tomatoes were not poisonous which do not like what the legendary people said. So, tomatoes now are known to more people in the world. And become a fruit which people likes very much. This example tells us that knowledge comes from practice. Without practice without knowledge, sometimes knowledge even come after repeat practice, then could we obtain scientific and correct understanding finally.

Have you ever wondered it was called the poison fruit when you eat delicious tomatoes. And do you know that there is a brave man who eat the first tomatoes. Only the one first step bravely can taste the delicious. It is the first step of difficulty make fame and glory in the future. Many time, people always want to do a thing, but hesitate and worry that dare not to do; And sometime, always choose the A and B, which one is better, but forget that opportunity has been quietly slip away when making the choice. With the fierce competition in our society, we will face more and more challenges.

It is widely accepted that one is more likely to succeed at things he already knows how to do well. However,to limit ourselves to doing only those things we are good at will make us miss many opportunities to develop other interests and skills. Therefore,sometimes it is necessary for us to try some new things and take some rests. Though we have the risk of failure when trying new things,we can get many advantages from it. Firstly,the process of trying a new thing is a rewarding experience,from which we may feel a different world.

Secondly, even if we fail,we can still absorb experience and lessons from the trying process and our failure. Thirdly, if it turns out that we succeed at this new try, we'll get great pleasure and confidence. Finally,it is impossible for us to never fail even if we do only what we are familiar with. We don't know when we'll meet the situation we can't control. With experience of trying, when facing unexpected situations,we can deal with them better. So bravely take the first step, no matter you choose which road, as long as you step out, you have got half success.
