In 9180s there was a popular song named 'Who is real hero?" in which the shouting of “好男儿志在四方” was so touching that your heart could not help beating fast than normal and even up to now it still sounds powerful to ears!
Just now  I translated the ‘slogan’ as the following:
"-A good boy is so ambitious that he takes the whole world as the stage for the  performance of his talent! "


Dear reader friends:I am looking forward for the best English version of the same saying from you!

Ho, I could not help laughing when I first saw your reply on the cellphone this morning! YOU were kidding in a no serious way!
'四方‘ does not mean an oblong which has four right angles! Your translation is unacceptable even for native Chinese let alone foreign friends!

"A real man should has strong determination to do achievement anywhere he goes!"

Anyway thanks for your participation!

A good child should set up an ideal to do good job no matter where he or she settles down when growing up!
(Originally 男儿 refers to ‘boy’ or ‘man’; Here it should also include ‘girls’ or 'women' since this famous proverb is fit for all human kinds!  We should not look down on female friends! )

a true man should not stay at home for his career

"A  true man should not (only)stay at home for his career."
You are clever! Your fresh saying reminds me that Chinese idiom '烘云托月" which means:When you want to draw the bright Moon, you first paint the clouds in the background that job will naturally show the outlook of the Satellite!   
Yes, a free expressing atmosphere can let us tell out the same story in  colorful ways! That is the attraction of powerful English!
Thanks for your contribution to my post!
