The old people always say pride will make a person lag behind. They make a conclusion of it must have their reason and I believe it, because I have such experience. Last semester, I did well in the final exam. My teacher spoke highly of me and my parents felt so proud. Since then, I gained great confidence and felt satisfied. When the new semester began, I no longer studied very hard, because I was the top student. I felt frustrated soon, because I lag much behind in the latest test. I realized my problem and decided to focus on study. Now I was back in the top list and I kept studying hard all the time.
