"Work hard for your dream."

"Don't stay for temporary enjoyment, for there are more rewarding delights ahead."

"Move forward in the new year."

With the Spring Festival holiday coming to an end, many people have returned to their workplace. On WeChat moments, they posted motivational words, which not only carry their best thoughts for the Year of the Ox, but also their resolutions to go all out in the new year.

Ox symbolizes diligence and strength in the Chinese zodiac. A year's plan starts with spring. Spring heralds the beginning and new hopes. In this season when everything is flourishing, it is the best time to seize the day and live it to the fullest.

Time will live up to every drop of sweat. All efforts are paving the way for the future. Only by working hard and continuously struggling can we create a better future and ignite the glory of life.

"We must promote the spirit of the ox in serving the people, driving innovative development and working tirelessly, fear no hardship and be enterprising,” said President Xi Jinping at a Chinese Lunar New Year reception on Feb. 10.

Spring is the season for sowing and one will reap what he or she sows. Let's not waste a minute to get back to work and turn the yearning for a better life into a driving force to move forward.
