the advantage

Post  Sophia14 on Fri May 04, 2012 4:58 am

i do not think someone can be a successful person just because he has the good DNA or other things. i think for most people, it is our hard working and persistance that make us successful other than the so-called genieus. even though you have the better DNA, you do not work hard to make your talent release, you can not be successful. so what i believe is hard work and comepetition.

the predict

Post  Sophia14 on Fri May 04, 2012 5:03 am

i think the success of the future cannnot be predicted. as our teacher said, even though your docyor predicted that you can live long enough, if you are hit by a truck all these predictions are useless. what we shall value is that we work hard and make our best to do what we want to do. perhaps the next mariale is made by you. all these are cannot be predicted.

Those significant progress and technology reformation are lead by those who has elite and unique DNA like Einstein, Newton, and so on. But only talent is of cause not enough, they need opportunities and at least works or objects that materialize or record their talent and achievement. Common people can achieve something by persistence and perseverance, hard work and so on, but their success in is limitation. They can achieve what they can do the most, but there are some things they can never achieve.
It’s hard to say, because even if we could decide he/she ‘s potential, he/she may not get the chance to fulfill their great expectation, even life may not give them a chance to live to do it.

my idea

Post  emma-lee on Sun May 06, 2012 11:43 am

As far as I am concerned it is positive that some people have advantages because of DNA. Some people have advantages because of a matter of opportunities, hard-working and perseverance.
It is difficult to say what the best gauge is to determine someone’s potential or success in life. Different people have their own ideas. Every one has his or her own criterion in his or her heart, so we cannot say he or she is successful or not. If we have to use the gauge, it will be how happy she or he is according to my opinion. I think happiness is very important in our life.

To some degree, some people may have advantages because of DNA. He may have good opportunities, but all he get still need his own hard –work. Without hard work and perseverance, No matter how good his DNA is, he may not be successful.
It is difficult to say what the best gauge is to determine someone’s potential or success in life. It depends on. Everyone has its own criterion. People can be successful in different aspects. Some people may be successful in study; others may be successful in their own jobs. Different people have different success.
Personally speaking, I think personality is very important. People should shape good personality and build up confidence~

Of course some people have advantages from DNA but for most people, success is the result of the combination of opportunity, hard-work, and perseverance. No one is born to be successful. Life is unpredictable. Even if he or she has the best DNA, success or a happy life is not guaranteed. All of these four factors are important.

No absolute best gauge

Post  Richard007 on Sun May 06, 2012 3:55 pm

I think there is no absolute best gauge to determine whether a person

is successful or not. Every person's advantages and strong points, such

as his DNA, hard work, perserverance, etc. just can help him to success

more smoothly and easily, while it does not mean that he can be

successful in 100 percentage. For example, Yao Ming is 2.26-meter-tall.

His height proves that he can be outstanding,even best in basketball.

However, it turns out that more basketball players who are shorter are

better than him.So I think it is a little nonsense only to say that it

is a matter of hard-work and perserverance, let alone DNA. Those things

just are one part of a person's route to success. And there is no

absolute best gauge to determines someone's potential or success, but

relative best gauge which can be recognized by the majority. To be

simple, in a match, there must be a rank from the first to the last and

surely people all think that the first one is the best and the most

successful. However, there is another saying goes, "Anyone who are

brave to take part in the match is the winner." Then, there will be no

failure.New gauge will take place of the old one, and so does the new

record and new player. As long as one tries his best during the whole

process of his life, I think he is successful.

I don't think DNA can determine a person's future. Thomas Edison ever said, "Genius is one percent of inspiration and ninty-nine percent of perspiration." If a person has a very good background but he doesn't work hard at all, he will achieve nothing in the end. There are so many examples like this. So success is a matter of opportunity, hard work and perseverance. It almost has nothing to do with DNA.
The best gauge to determine someone's potential or success in life is his efforts in life.

both works

Post  lanny.liu on Tue May 08, 2012 8:19 am

I believe that someone really has advantages because of DNA, but other things really matter, too. If something who have a gift for something but he doesn’t do anything with it, he couldn’t succeed. I believe that anyone can be successful with opportunity, hard-work, and perseverance.
As for the best gauge to determine someone's potential or success in life, it’s hard to say there is such a thing like that. No one can say whether a person can do this or that in the future.
Very Happy

DNA

Post  Juliaye on Fri May 11, 2012 7:06 am

I do believe that different DNA will have different effect on people’s IQ. In human history, Albert Einstein is a best example. He had much more advantages over other human beings. Still, we can see some people decide to marry some others who have advantageous genes so that they can have a excellent child. DNA decides people’s congenital benefits, while hard working , perseverance and opportunity are also important because these are some other factors which will definitely affect people’s behavior. If someone who has a good DNA, but he doesn’t work hard or has no opportunity to show his talent, it will be a waste of genes, I think.

No certain gauge

Post  Juliaye on Fri May 11, 2012 7:07 am

I think there is no certain gauge to identify people’s potential of success in life. In Chinese culture, we have a saying, “小时了了,大未必佳”. That means a child who appears clever will not definitely great in the future. On most circumstance, he will lose his advantages after he grows up. We may say someone is good, excellent or outstanding for this moment, but we can’t be sure he must be successful in the future.

i don't think one has the advantage because of the DNA. there are other factors detemines one's successful life and career. howerver, good health is the wherewithdral of one's suceessful life and career.
in addition, hard-working, perservence and opprtunituty play an important role in determining one's successful life. after reading Leo Tolstoy's Resurrection. i wrote on the title page"life itself is a tragdy".
however,it is not how the the thing are, for life is not a tradgy, but a struggle. what do will live for? i think we should live for the purpuose of conquering life. so just be a fighter of life! Surprised

DNA is an important element that can determin our physical and psychological conditions. However, it is never the determinant aspect that can ensure the success.
We are born with different fine qualities as well as some shortcomings, but fine qualities without any further practise can turn into our weak points and shorcomings can also develop into our advantages if we can overcome them. All these changes are acquiered by our effort throughout our lifetime.
DNA is unchageable. Accept it.
But life is varying .So try to make some changes.

both of them

Post  Tiffany13 on Thu May 17, 2012 5:04 am

in my opinion, both of the DNA and the hard-working effect in one's success. First of all, there are really someone who have great talent in doing something, especiallyin such things as art, music, sports and so on. Some of them are really excellent in a certain field, their achievements cannot be reached by the common people through hardworking or training. But on the other hand, training really works . Through training, one can improve its skill, get better result in a filed. by the way, if a person born with the better DNA, but he/she never trains it, it means nothing . so, i think both of them are imporant.

hard work

Post  melissa15 on Thu May 17, 2012 3:23 pm

in American values, there are hardwork and competion. everyone is born equal, though he has a better DNA. the issue that determine us whether we can success or not is the your attitude to your life and the challenges before you. we can't deny the good genius can help us to get close to our goal. but the hard work can make everything impossible possible. no matter what difficulty you meet, persist on your dream and work on.

Both!

Post  RileyYin on Thu May 17, 2012 5:37 pm

We have to admit that DNA plays quiet an important role in forming our potential ability. But, the growing enviromment is more important,especially when we are young. Just like the wolf child, he was born as human, but growed up with wolves. So he didn't own the abilities human should possess. So DNA doesn't decide everything. Hard wor and perseverance can make up its disadvantage.

good DNA, diligent , success

Post  sunnysun on Sat May 19, 2012 2:06 pm

the good DNA like good family background in many people's eyes. in ole times, people have different classes among people, that is the class bias make distance between people. From discovered the DNA , people pay more attention to one't DNA. One has better DNA maybe has an advantage chance to be success but if he doesn't work hard, he cannot success either. just like one can inherit a lot money from his father but if he doesn't know how to manege it and one day he will wast all the momey, be a pauper at the end. The man who has better DNA and diligent has more chance to be success.

the true advantages

Post  Angela* on Sun May 20, 2012 12:29 pm

No one can deny the fact that someone did have some advantages because of DNA. Just as there are no two leaves in the world in the same form, no people have the same potential in the world. But, the difference, for most people, is quite little. To normal people, the main adventage one can possess is his hard work in his life. And, opportunity, hard-work, and perseverance are something more important than innate advantage. The life is in your hand, it needs your hardworking, not the advantage given by the god.
So, the best gauge to determines someone's potential or success in life is his actions in life. No one can success merely by his innate advantage, we success by our hard work. And we can predict one’s success only by what he did in daily life.

There are some people who got huge achievement due to their DNA, such as models who have superperfect figures, singers who have talents in singing and so on. However, most people succeed because of hard-work and perseverance. No one is born to be a huge success; no one is born to be a loser. If everything has been settled down, human will be too grieved to live. How a man persist on his gift or dream is the best gauge to his success.

[quote="Admin"]Do some people have advantages because of DNA or is it a matter of opportunity, hard-work, and perseverance?


.Actually, both the two factors influence a person's success. A person's destiny is determined by genetic endowment, shaped by environment, and influenced by chance events. We have to admit that we cannot determine our DAN-genes, so will we can do is pay more effort to achieve what we want. I believe sometimes hard-working and perseverance can determine a person's fate and produce unexpected effect

In my opinion, some people indeed have advantages because of DNA. We cannot deny that some people are really very smart. However, if they are just smart, but do not work hard, they will not succeed. It works the same way. If a person is really very foolish, even if he work very hard, it is impossible for him to make a big success. So both intelligence and hardworking are important to determine one’s potential and success in life. Actually, people have little difference in intelligence. Only a few people are very smart. A majority of us are neither too smart nor too foolish. so, hardworking plays an important role for our success.

no pains, no gains。Without exerting oneself, one could never expect to achieve success in no matter what one is doing. As is known to all, there is no royal road to the summit of success. One is likely to succeed only when one has worked with whole-hearted devotion and perseverance. Those who are lazy, sloppy and indifferent to their work, those who never concentrate on work will definitely end in failure. On the whole, as far as they are concerned, hard-working is the decisive factor to success.

Smile I agree that the person who has better DNA than others has advantages. these people will be cleverer, stronger, and live longer than others. it is very obvious that they will have opportunity and do harder work than ordinary people. at the same time, they will have the same feeling with the common people.they will also do something wrong and have shortcomings. only in this way can they experience the true life as a human being.

In the second half of the nineteenth century, America was flooded with new immigrants. These new immigrants, especially the millions of Irish fleeing Ireland's potato famine of 1846, helped to popularize the celebration of Halloween nationally.
