I read this book during my military service. At that time, I was a private first class, and at that time my favorite hobby was reading books because I was having a difficult time adapting to my life in the military. Most Korean men in their early twenties are concerned about both their future and present.
It was no different, but I just thought about it, and I didn’t actually do anything. I only thought “I am looking forward to doing something, and want to know how to live.”
Then I read this book. At first, I thought this book was very thin and would be easy to read. However, I read more this book again, and it was more interesting. After I took time to really read it felt numb all over. The main subject of this book is “If you want to achieve something, you need to try, and not be afraid.” I realized I hadn’t been trying, and I never did anything. I was very shy but, after reading this book, I was changed. I started to make an effort to do my best in whatever I set out to do. I decided to set up a specific plan for my future.
Therefore, as I finished my military service, I was known as a model squad commander in my camp and my work story was published in an army newspaper.
Even now, I’m not afraid to try something new when it comes to school life, friendships, or anything else. I am determined do my best in whatever I do.
This still book has a place in my room today. Nowadays, if I feel frustrated or tried, I read the book again.
