Disadvantage and Advantage

The unlucky little boy lost his left arm in a car accident and became disabled, but he wanted to learn judo that even healthy people are very difficult to do well.

不幸的小男孩在车祸中失去了左臂,成了残疾,但他很想学连健全人都很难学好的柔道。

After he pursued studies, finally a judo master took him.

他四处求学后,终于有一位柔道大师接纳了他。

But in 3 months after admission, the master only repeatedly taught the little boy one trick.

但在入学后的3个月里,师傅却只肯反复教小男孩一招。

By and by, the little boy could not help but ask, "Master, I have been practicing it for a few months, so should I learn other tricks?"

终于,小男孩忍不住问道:“老师,这招我已经练了几个月了,是不是应该再学其他招数?”

Unexpectedly, the master shook his head immediately, "No, it is good enough for you to practice this one."
没想到老师立即摇了摇头:“不,你只需要把这一招练好就够了。”

The little boy felt chagrined, but because he believed the master so much that he obeyed to continue practicing.
小男孩感觉很委屈,但因为非常相信师傅,所以他还是听话地继续练了下去。

3 years later, the master took the boy to attend the match.
3年后,师傅带小男孩去参加比赛。

Seeing the opponents tall and strong, the weak and disabled boy was very afraid.
看到对手高大强壮,瘦弱残疾的小男孩很是害怕。

The master encouraged him, "Don't be afraid. You will make it because your master has confidence in you."
这时,师傅鼓励他说:“不要怕,你一定会成功,师傅对你有信心。”

However, the boy was still laden with worries.
但不管怎样,小男孩还是顾虑重重。

Surprisingly, the final champion was actually the little boy without left arm and with only one trick, and the result surprised the little boy.
出乎人们意料的是,最后的冠军竟然真的是这个没有左臂、只会一招的小男孩,这个结果让小男孩自己都很惊讶。

"Why is it, master?" the little boy asked the master.
“这是为什么,老师?”小男孩问师傅。

Seeing he was so puzzled, the master explained, "There are two reasons: first, it is the most difficult one in judo, which you have spent a few years practicing and you have almost completely mastered. Second, as far as I know, the only way against this move is to grasp your left arm."
看着他迷惑不解的样子,师傅解释道:“有两个原因:一、这是柔道中最难的一招,你用了几年时间去练它,几乎已经完全掌握了它的要领。二、就我所知,对付这一招唯一的办法就是抓住你的左臂。”

Inferior position is not necessarily immutable in any case.
劣势不一定在任何情况下都是劣势。

Make best use of the advantages and bypass the disadvantages as far as possible, or create opportunities to turn inferiority into superiority; we will be able to stand out of inferiority.
尽可能扬长避短,或者创造机会变劣为优,我们便能因为劣势脱颖而出。
