一个典型的故事 A Typical Success Story
When I was a little boy, I always dreamed of becoming a professional athlete. Michael Jordan was my idol. But unfortunately I became an accountant, and I got married to another accountant. It’s such a boring job. I just didn’t have that talent and strong will that it takes to become a professional athlete. I hope my son will realize my dream. Who knows? Maybe I’d better let him chase his own dream.
Anyway, it’s so important to have a dream in life. Now my dream is for my son to be successful.
