    • Hello Takuto,

      I’m interested in your discussion question 2. If I add one more point to be succeed, I’ll give you an example, “Never give up”.
      Bringing a strong feeling leads you to achieve your goal.
      I believe it from the bottom of my heart through my experience.
      I’m an amateur cyclist and I participate in Honolulu Century Ride since 2008. It’s a fun-ride competition for us, most of participants run the whole distance at 100 mile one day. Last year, I got injured on my way to the goal, I was in the situation I couldn’t ride a bike anymore. It was first experience to get injured during the race, at that time, I was so confused.
      I felt like giving up the race because of a sharp pain on my left knee. But my friends came to me, “Nori, never give up, we’ll believe you that you’ll run the whole distance. You’ll forget to feel your pain while riding. Keep going!!”.
      As a result, I ran the whole distance at 100 miles. After the race, bringing a strong feeling, “Never give up”, led me to be achive my goal, I thought.
      Since then, I’ve been bringing a spirit “Never give up” in my heart.
      If you’re depressed, you might want to remember this phrase, “Never give up”.
      I think this phrase will lead you to achieve your goal!!
      Thank you so much, Takuto.

    • Hello Misato,

      I’m interested in your discussion 2.
      It’s a tough question to answer and it’s difficult to define what the success is.
      In my opinion, I dare to say, I think my success defines my satisfaction of prosess to achieve my goal.
      To achieve our goals, we have a long way to get there. Sometimes we’re involved in trouble, we feel stuck and we feel like giving up.
      After we get trough a difficulty, our goal will be waiting for us. When we get to the goal, we’re able to feel satisfction.
      This is my success defined in my heart.
      Misato, what’s your success. I’d like to hear your opinion.
      My life goal isn’t in existence because I think my life is everlasting travel.
      I’d like to take on a new challenge while in my life.
      Thank you so much, Misato.

    • Hello Kasumi,

      I’m interested in watching your topic this time. It’s easy to understand what the plot is.
      When we try to do something new, we have a fear of failure. But this presentation gives us an encouragement to be succeed.
      This presenter gives ue 8 examples to be succeed and his presentation summarizes 8 points what he would like to convey his messege.
      In my opinion, having passion is the best way to achieve my goal and to be succeed in my life.
      Passion always gives me a brave and an encouragement whenever I try to do something new. Sometimes, I feel like giving up my goal, but passion always pushes me on my back.
      After that, I start to try to achieve my goal.
      There’re many things I can learn from the topic you chose this time.
      I enjoyed watching your topic and I felt so good after watching this topic.
      Thank you so much, Kasumi.
