In the western countries, it is said that people believe in the bad number very much, the number 13 is thought to be the unlucky number, especially when it happens in Friday. There is a famous song called black Friday, so Friday plus the number 13 means the most unlucky day. While in my opinion, I don’t think the number has something to do with the luck.
Just like the western countries, Chinese people also believe the lucky number. The number 4 is treated as the bad luck, because it sounds like dead in Chinese, so if people try to avoid using the number 4, they can have more chances to be successful. If people fail, they will blame for the unlucky number.
二、控制你的情绪 Control Your Emotion
You must control and direct your emotions not abolish them. Besides, abolition would be antimissile task. Emotions are like a river. Their power can be dammed up and released under control and direction, but is cannot be held forever in check. Sooner or later the dam will burst, unleashing catastrophic destruction.
Your negative emotions can also be controlled and directed. PMA and self-discipline can remove their harmful effects and make them serve constructive purposes. Sometimes fear and anger will inspire intense action. But you must always submit your negative emotions--and you positive ones--to the examination of your reason before releasing them. Emotion without reason is a dreadful enemy.
你的消极心态同样也可被控制和导引，积极心态和自律 可去除其中有害的部分，而使这些消极心态能为目标贡献力 量。有的时候恐惧和生气会激发出更彻底的行动，但是在你释放消极情绪(以及积极情绪)之前务必要让你的理性为它们做一番检验，缺乏理性的情绪必然是一位可怕的敌人。
What faculty provides the crucial balance between emotions and reason? It is your willpower, or ego, a subject which will be explored in more detail below. Self-discipline will teach you to throw your willpower behind either reason or emotion and amplify the intensity of their expression.
Both your heart and your mind need a master, and they can find the master in your ego. However, your ego will fill their role only if you use self-discipline. In the absence of self-discipline, your mind and heart will fight their battles as they please. In this situation the person within whose mind the fight is carried out often gets badly hurt.
A Crow, half-dead with thirst, came upon a Pitcher which had once been full of water; but when the Crow put its beak into the mouth of the Pitcher he found that only very little water was left in it, and that he could not reach far enough down to get at it. He tried, and he tried, but at last had to give up in despair. Then a thought came to him, and he took a pebble and dropped it into the Pitcher. Then he took another pebble and dropped it into the Pitcher. Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher. Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher. Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher. Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher. At last, at last, he saw the water mount up near him, and after casting in a few more pebbles he was able to quench his thirst and save his life.
Little by little does the trick.
