英文演讲稿——dreams

The Chinese people are going through a tough period of time, fighting against the H7N9 flu virus and Ya an earthquake in Sichuan province. At this critical moment, our dreams have become the most important theme for the future development of China.

Why dreams are so important for a person?

In 1943, psychologist Abraham Maslow published his now-famous need hierarchy theory of motivation. Although the theory was based on his clinical observation of a few neurotic individuals, it has subsequently been used to explain the entire spectrum of human behavior. Maslow proposed that motivation is a function of five basic needs- physiological, safety, love, esteem, and self-actualization. Let’s look at the pyramid.

Accordingly, when one’s physiological needs are relatively satisfied, the safety needs emerge. Climbing up the pyramid, the love and esteem needs are satisfied until the need for self-actualization is activated. That is to become the best one is capable of becoming. In other words, your dream has been fulfilled on that stage.

As far as I am concerned, I dream that one day I can be a successful politician. Albert Einstein said “success comes from 99% of diligence and 1% of inspiration”. Don’t neglect the 1% of inspiration, it contains all the dreams, creativity and curiosity from the bottom of the heart. Although some people say that politics is

full of conflict and conspiracy, I believe politics has its unique charm. To be the prime minister of China, one has to have comprehensive knowledge. History, economics, culture, religion and language skills are all categories of his personal knowledge backgrounds. But in order to equip himself with all these qualities, he has to be ambitious. Ambition is the most important quality for a man to achieve his self-actualization.

Let me give you an example, one of my classmates went to Shanghai to fulfill his dream to become a fashion designer because he love clothes very much. He tried his best to get a bachelor’s degree in textile engineering so that he understood well about the real quality of materials. Although he has a long way to go before becoming a fashion designer, the dream is still shining in his heart to lead his way towards the red carpet. Maybe he won’t achieve his goal because it depends on many occasional factors, like opportunities, competition and economic conditions. It won’t hinder him from pursuing his dream.

We are all familiar with Van Gogh’s story and let’s go back to the pyramid. Judging from the four needs, he didn’t fulfill his physiological needs, because he had to be supported by his family members all his life. In terms of safety, love and esteem, we can see that he was fighting to satisfy himself but failed. Even a

prostitute looked down upon him so that he had to cut one of his ears to cater to her. But he said: “the purpose of my painting is not to be accurate but to strongly showcase myself.”his paintings have been recognized by human beings, he has achieved his self-actualization after his death.

Last but not the least,I hope every sweet dream can find its way to

come true.
