Happiness is not the absence of problems, but the ability to deal with them.
（解释含义）An instructive saying goes “Happiness is not the absence of problems, but the ability to deal with them”. Simple as the saying is, the message it conveys is profound and thought-provoking. Evidently, it is meant to tell us that we should be brave enough to face challenges in our life rather than pray for their disappearance.
（举例说明）Actually, history abounds with examples to prove this saying. Taking a look around, we can also find examples too many to enumerate. Here I can think of no better illustration of the proverb than Yu Minhong, the founder and president of New Oriental. He used to be contented with being a teacher in Peking University. However, things changed and he had to quit and start his own business. Though he had experienced challenges of various forms, he is a universally acknowledged success now. I bet he is much happier than if he was only a teacher in Peking University.
（我的做法）Personally, I decide to pursue my study of the relationship between China and America. I shall learn from Yu Minhong and other great personalities. Though I may suffer poverty and failure for quite a long time, I would not give up. And I believe that I can conquer them and I will gain more happiness during the process.
