Have you seen the new film The Martian?
If you are thinking this film is about some invaders or aliens from the planet
Mars attacking our world with huge space ships and vaporising big cities…
you must have been sleeping in some cave or have been lost somewhere or
just not bothered to read or know current events and interesting happenings
right here on Earth.
The film is based on a best selling book about a guy stranded on Mars, all by
himself, alone on a hostile planet, struggling to survive until help can reach
him to bring him home safely on Earth.
This is not a true story.
It is a very imaginative and creative work of fiction.
Some of you may be thinking … whats the big deal?
Men are from Mars, right?
Some of you may also be happy if you can just leave your men there, never
able to return…
But that is another story…
Jokes aside, this film is an interesting and thrilling story of true determination
and perseverance to overcome almost insurmountable obstacles to survive…
Some people who have watched this film have expressed surprise that, although
the main theme of the film is about a very serious subject of desperately trying to
stay alive with very limited resources in a treacherous environment, the film has
some humor and funny scenes in it.
We can certainly learn from this story to inspire us to improve our lives.
We must never give up if we have already decided what we want to do and if
we really want to achieve our goals in life
Many of us must have heard of …where there is a will, there is a way.
We must believe that if our will is really strong enough, there will surely be a way
to get what we want, and whether and how soon we can achieve our goals will
largely depend on how much we want to achieve them and how much we are
willing to do to get there.
We must learn not to be discouraged when we are faced with many big problems.
We should tackle each problem and solve it , one at a time, and have some fun in
doing it, so that we can eventually get to achieve our goals, be successful in life
and enjoy the fruits of our labor.
