In America,seldom do you go anywhere without hearing a principle called WIN ? WIN.It sounds strange to me at first because throughout my childhood,I have always been taught to try everything possible to win an upper ? hand,rather than to help other people win.However,as time goes by,I have gradually comprehended the essence(真谛)of WIN ? WIN principle:it is the attitude of seeking mutual benefit.? When I was little,I used to play Chinese checkers(跳棋)which include two basic tactics (战术) :One is to create paths for yourself;the other is to block the passages of your rival.Players may apply these two totally different approaches in the game,but the key for the player to win is to continuously create paths for him even if his opponent may take advantage of it.Finally he can always reach the destination(目的地)a few steps ahead of the other player.Meanwhile,some player may take another approach to prevent his opponent from moving forward at all costs.By this he may get a short ? term benefit,but couldn ? t fix attention on the final goal,thus he would never truly develop further.?

childhood.Moreover,a crucial(决定性的)standard for universities to judge new students is whether they have worked for the community or not.? In China,it is quite usual that some people are too selfish and never take other people,s interests into consideration,while someone who really has courage to do something for the public is often called “foolish” or “stupid” .Actually helping other people can be of great delights for the helper,for he can also learn something crucial for his life such as sympathy,care,devotion,etc. only if you take other people ? s interests So into earnest consideration can you assure your own gain.?
