  The Importance of Self-confidence


  Confidence, in a broad sense, comprises self-trust, self-esteem, courage and indomitability. This definition, though somewhat vague and unsubstantial, can be appreciated throughexperience because in our lifetime, we are always seeking to achieve something successful andare always longing to attain a glorious goal, which can only be reached with the spirit of self-confidence.

  As is known, self-confidence is accompanied by will, and that as a twin, offers hope. Those whodo not have a strong will often think themselves unable to carry out any thorny tasks, whilethose who have do not find the tas ks unsurmountably difficult. In fact, when our heart is voidof selfconfidence, every hope is gone, every thing on which we put our hands seems to be veiledin dark. For instance, according to experts, every year in the entrance examinations of all kinds, fully-prepared candidates lose nearly 5% to 10% of the full scores, and consequently meettheir Water loo simply because they underestimate their own abilities on the one hand, andover estimate possible difficulties on the other. As a result, their fear to meet new challengeleads to helpless ness in the examination.

  Self-confidence can be regained (if you have ever lost it) by building faith in your self. True, whatever you do, you will encounter hardships. But success will come to you if you arecourageous enough to strive for it. If you are not, failure might be your life-companion.

    耐克今年的奥运会运动员特供服装终于出来了,不少粉丝已经盼了很久,不过……大家似乎对这一次的衣服不怎么满意。本次的这个特别系列极其简单,很多人觉得压根就是没设计。而设计师也说这一次的设计宗旨基本也就是没什么设计,尽量简单。据说这是为了贴合本次奥运的主题——可持续发展。总之,这次的衣服就是这个样子了。不过同期推出的鞋子还不错。It’s easy to remember the 2012 Olympic Games, when the U.S. women’s gymnastics team won gold.
