Sometimes it seems that what is practical and sensible does not connect with your most treasured dreams. Yet when you look deeply enough, the connection is most certainly there.
For if you could not dream, what would be the point of tending to the practical things? And if you did not tend to those practical concerns, how could you ever hope to attain your dreams?
Stop fretting about how the things you must do are interfering with the things you want to do. Instead, discover and appreciate and strengthen the connection between the two.
Make your dreams a part of your reality. And make your reality a part of your dreams. There is no reason why your dreams must oppose your reality. Improve your dreams and your reality by bringing them together.
Put the power of passion into the day-to-day, sensible and practical things, and put the power of reality into your dreams. You'll find it to be a winning combination indeed.
Self-confidence, as is approved by research and practice, has an amazingly powerful influence on the output of people’s activities. Patients who believe that they’ll recover soon generally cures faster than those who think they won’t. Students with optimistic characters usually provide better performance, even if they work the same hard as others. Although someone may regard such conclusion as superstitious, it does take place everyday and everywhere. Neural scientists have discovered that, when a man feels confident, his brain will secrete some kinds of hormone that boost brain activity and improve the efficiency of his immune system. In contrast, a melancholic brain is suppressed by other chemicals and cannot fully exhibit its potential.
To help building up self-confidence, you can take the following two steps. First, identify your merits and value them. If you constantly compare your weakness to others’ advantages, you’d only gain frustration rather than confidence. Second, track every little progress you’ve made and review them frequently. You may not possibly become perfectly successful in one day, but if only you can see yourself growing gradually, surely you’re on the right way. There’re also other methods making you more confident that depend on yourself to find out, and they’re all necessary elements to make you more competitive in your area.
As we know, most of the middle school students today have the same dream, to go to college. To be a college student not only means that you can get further education but also means a great success.
However, the question is, whether going to a college is the only way to success. My answer is "No". I disagree to the opinion for the following reasons.
First of all, getting into a university does not necessarily mean that you have won everything. A famous English saying goes, "One can never be too old to learn". You still need study very hard to get the bachelor, master or even doctor degree to achieve greater success.
Secondly, besides colleges or universities, you still have lots of way to achieve success. In history, a number of famous scientists and scholars, who did not manage to get into colleges, still made great contributions to human beings. Why was that? Because they had the determination which led them to the success.
Thirdly, I think the most important thing for today's society is not a diploma but the personal ability. Nowadays, we are all fac-ing the challenges of the market economy so what is essential to-day is not how high education you received but how soon you can dealing with the difficulties of all kinds.
Ladies and gentleman, All roads lead to Rome. Let us drop the old concept about the college diploma and embrace an even brighter future. Thank you.

My vacation was very interesting. I did my homework on first day. I played table tennis on second day. I watched TV on the third day. I went shopping on the fourth day. I… But I liked my going shopping best.
On Sunday, I went to a shopping center with my mother. The shopping center wasn’t far from my home. It took us about ten minutes to get there on foot. The shopping center was very big. There were all kinds of things. Every day a lot of people go there to buy things. It opens at eight in the morning and closes at nine at night. Now, I was helping my mother buying things. I had a shopping list in my hand. We were looking for things on the shopping list. After staying in the shopping center for about two hours, we got all the things and walked home.
What did you do when you were on vacation?
