Question：Talk about a positive change in your life.
1. Brief introduction 简单介绍
I am an individual who constantly set goals and push myself to accomplish them. My success rate is pretty low but I have a dogged determination to keep it going.
2. When did the change take place? 该变化发生的时间
I used to spend a lot of money and hardly saved. I was very generous and would always pick up the tab when i invited my friends for dinner. I also spent money recklessly on things that i did not need at the time. I still have a lot of white elephants. About 6 months ago, my father called and i could tell from his tone that he was furious. He had received the notification from the bank.
3. Why do you change? 为什么会改变?
He asked what i had spent 15,000 yuan on. I couldn’t tell him that i had spent it on a new phone and clothing. He made it clear that he could cut my monthly spend if i did not curb my wasteful behavior. There was an unshakable resolve in his voice that made me realize that he was serious this time. He had made such threats before but now i know the game was up.
4. How did you respond? 你是如何反应的?
I listened to all what he had to say that and i promised to change my ways. He also explained that his business was not doing as well as in previous years. At that point i decided to change my way. I am more careful now. I make a list of things i need and i shop online for cheaper items. I eat less in fancy restaurants and try to cook when i can. I now have a savings account and save as much as possible.
5. Summary 总结
I feel much better, now with a greater sense of maturity. These days I follow a single doctrine of “live within your means”. i realize that i can’t take any thing for granted. One day my dad will be gone and i will have to take care of myself. It is one of the best changes i have ever made in my life.
