Hay circunstancias en nuestra vida muy difíciles que elegimos atravesar para aprender, pero el tomar estas circunstancias difíciles de una forma positiva observando y enfocándose en la belleza de lo más mínimo, dejando atrás la culpa y el victimismo, convirtiendo estas circunstancias en las mejores maestras de nuestra vida, brindara un mayor sentido de seguir viviendo.
ENGLISH EXPRESSION: This guy is a real go-getter!
- "Have you ever met Larry? He's a real go-getter. He plays soccer, he works two jobs, and he volunteers at a homeless shelter. " -
A go-getter is a common, informal word that we use to talk about someone who is very motivated. It is one of those strange combination of words in English to perhaps simplify the language. Instead of using a word like motivated, we have taken two simple words (go and get) and combined them to end up with a "go-getter." -
This is a typical tactic in a lot of spoken English to combine two simple words instead of using a more proper word. If you prefer using words like motivated, ambitious, or determined, you are more than welcome to, but I just want to show you how people actually speak on a daily basis.
Here are a few more examples of how to use the word.
- "My English students are real go-getters. They send me messages all the time outside of class asking for clarification on things they don't understand in English." -
- "When Jack was younger, he was real a go-getter. Now, he finds himself barely motivated to get out of bed in the morning."
