    Gaining a recognized position & earning incredibly high salary in your field of expertise are most people’s dreams. To pursue these payoffs, workers work hard and students study hard. However, achieving that goal in a decent manner is far from easy. As a result, some people use their own talent and their endeavor, whereas some choose shorter and less transparent ways.
    Recently, the IELTS community has solicited a wave of anger for some highly respected trainers whose names are so familiar to us. Some of these instructors either exaggerated or falsified their IELTS certificates to deceive the public. To make matters worse, when the information of these wrongdoings leaked, the convicted opted for making excuses, beating around the bush or giving no explanation instead of apologizing to their learners for their misbehavior.
    Due to these recent scandals, it got me thinking that whether these wrongdoers had once thought about possible responsibilities they would bear if someone detected it one day. In addition, these scandalous events could have higher chances of becoming stigmas which are hard to fade away for many years to come.
    As for psychological reasons, we people usually face the dilemma of prioritizing between existing monetary benefits and our code of conduct – a so-called “work ethics”.

        Being an angel bears a striking difference to being an evil. Which one is your preference, sticking to your belief system of doing the right thing or pursuing your goals at all costs?
        Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes, offenders are involved in illegal acts due to their family burdens such as cases of prostitution or petty crimes. Do you agree or disagree with this idea?

    Journey, is the process of traveling from one place to another for a certain purpose seeking specific reward and throughout that process, we encounter unexpected events (it could be either negative or positive and depends greatly on your vision, perspective, and your opinion towards life). Usually, it is not the reward that we participate in the journey for but the journey itself. When we decide to sign up for a journey (either being forced to or ourselves), we enjoy the journey more than merely getting the reward, we see different things, see a bigger picture, and learn new things. And by journey, I'm not just referring to physical journey in which we travels from location to another but the journey from one state to another, from fear to confident, from naive to mature, etc. But choosing a journey and choosing a path to follow is two different things but related to each other. Basically choosing a different path will lead you to another journey in which could be not much different from what we expected or utterly different (it depends on how the paths are related to each other in terms of the beginning, curves, ends, etc). But what about journey with no ends? The journey with no ends are the journey to discover yourself, journey to find your own definition to abstract things in life and in professions)

    Questions to ponder:

    1. What do you think is your own journey? Please share with us!
    2. Is there any tips or tricks you'd like to share for others who are looking for a journey and who need to choose a journey?
    3. To overcome an obstacle, we must have vision of it. While on the journey, you need to be conscious about the obstacle ahead of you, and planning on how to overcome them (by visualizing). So, how do we be aware of obstacles that are on our way? We need to be aware of it as much as possible but how much is enough?
    4. There are those who are observers (including me), they usually stay back, be curious and cautious about a problem and watch attentively others' steps and mistakes and visualizing how they will tackle it. Are you one of them?
    If yes, why are you one of them? How much can you see of an obstacle? How many percents that your prediction will generally be true (including and not including luck)? And how would you react and what would you do in case your prediction goes unexpected?
    If no, what do you think about them? What advises would you give them in case there is merely no one walking their path? What would you do and how would you react when you encounter an "off-track obstacle"(it's like "this place is under construction, please come back later")?

     

    Enjoy the discussion!!!
