Sima Yi’s life can be claimed to be a successful life. Wei Thuc Ngo three families, Cao Cao, Luu Bei, and Ton Quyen, the three great warriors fought for the world with each other for half of their lives, in the end the whole giant country fell into the hands of the Sima family. To do that, of course, with luck, but at the same time there is strength, and Sima Yi is the leader of the Sima family.
Sima Yi has been careful all her life, patiently waiting for the opportunity to create great karma, creating a solid foundation for her descendants to build a fortune later.
There are two classic sayings about the behavior of Sima Yi, which are still valid today.
The first sentence is: “The whole road has no enemies”
It can be said that Sima Yi is a tolerant leader. Some people think that he is a deep man who knows how to hide his thoughts, making it impossible for others to guess what he is thinking.
In “The Master of the Alliance”, Duong Tu is a sworn enemy of Sima Yi. One of the two is on Cao Shi’s side, while the other supports Cao Phi. Duong Tu many times wanted to get rid of Sima Yi, but the intention could not be realized, and Cao Cao was thrown into prison.
Sima Yi knew about Duong Tu’s accident and asked to meet him. Cao Cao did not understand the reason, wondering why he wanted to meet someone who plotted to eliminate him? Sima Yi said that he himself does not consider others an enemy, all are friends or teachers. In other words, Sima Yi does not accept petty things, calculates with Duong Tu, although he wants to “deal” with me, but people like me will not consider him as an enemy. Cao Cao, after hearing this saying of Sima Yi, greatly appreciated and appreciated Sima Yi.
Upholding his principles, Sima Yi towards Duong Tu and Zhuge Liang both showed respect and did not hold grudges against those who had harmed his people. Even in the moment of life and death he can always reconcile the two sides.
His second biggest rival is Zhuge Liang. After Zhuge Liang died of illness in Wuzhangyuan, Sima Yi personally went to the Shu Jun camp, where Zhuge Liang used to live.

Cao Due especially loved a person named Tich Ta. After Cao Due died, Tich Xie was imprisoned, only Sima Yi came to see him, even though he had caused many troubles for Cao Due. Sima Yi used his generous heart, and because he appreciated the loyal heart of Tich Xie, he brought him a set of clothes, so that he could retain his final dignity before entering the door. death.
Sima Yi’s reverence for his opponent showed his large heart and generous temperament. Sima Yi’s way of dealing with people shows that no matter what we do, we should leave a way back for ourselves, maintaining a respectful attitude even towards our enemies. At work, we should know how to learn from each other, respect each other, because their existence helps us to improve, making us more and more progress.
The second sentence is: “Defeat without shame, defeat without pain”
The Sima dynasty can endure and endure in stark contrast to the Cao family. Cao Phi is actually good, but his life is short, so is Cao Phi’s heir, Cao Due, who did not live long enough. Meanwhile, Sima Yi’s sons can still maintain their form and inherit their father’s wisdom, which is related to Sima Yi’s upbringing.
In parenting, Sima Yi has a unique educational philosophy that is worth learning:
When defeated at the hands of Zhuge Liang, deprived of the “small veins on Lung Thuong”, the soldiers of the Wei army were extremely dissatisfied. Obviously, the Wei army was many times more powerful than the Shu army, but it had to lose to Zhuge Liang. At that time, both of Sima Yi’s sons could not sit still, they went to their father to complain.
But when they came to their father’s tent, they only saw Sima Yi and the housekeeper Hau Cat, acting as if nothing had happened, calmly beating Ngu Cam Hi. The two boys were instantly enraged.

Sima Yi was neither hot nor cold and calmly asked: “Do you want to go to battle, or do you want to fight? Can those who are eager to win, always want to win over others, can win to the end? practice bravery, see failure as nothing sad nor shameful, only then can you really laugh until the end.”
Human life is bound to have many times when it is not as desired, facing failure and adversity. There is a saying in the world that we cannot change our circumstances, but we can change the way we perceive ourselves.
Sima Yi fought many battles all his life, won many battles, lost many, in the end was still the winner. His son also inherited this from his father, so he could not be inferior to anyone.
In fact, life is like that. A lifetime is very long, failure for a certain period of time cannot determine who you are, so don’t give up too soon. People often say that 30 years old is still nothing, life is considered abandoned… But in fact, we still have decades to change. Time and opportunities are still a lot, why have to come to a conclusion for yourself early?
Therefore, in life, if you accidentally fall, just get up and start over. Layoffs, unemployment or bankruptcy are just a milestone, if you continue, there is still a chance to turn the game around.
