In real life, most people seem confident. But when they can’t have things they want, they are upset and lose themselves. Do you want to learn how to be yourself? Here are
Be kind to yourself
Appreciate what you have done. Everyone has different talents which can help to make the world become a better one. Remember you don’t need to satisfy everyone. No matter what others think of you, just be yourself .
Make good friends
Always make friends with people who are willing to make you feel better about yourself. Good friends neither talk about how great they are nor praise you a lot. They enjoy being with you, not because you are like them, but because you are yourself.
Think about your family
The values of your family are to give you what you really need. Maybe you can’t get help when you have small problems. But you can learn how to depend on yourself. When you meet big problems, your family will always be with you.
Hold on to your dream
Holding on to your dream can make you braver and stronger. On the way of achieving your dream, you’ll know who you are and what you want. Even though you can’t achieve it, you’ll find you are better and you can still live a normal life.
In a word, you are the only one. Accept yourself and be yourself. Being unsuccessful doesn’t mean you’re not good enough. You just need a long way to go.

If you want to become a better reader, what should you know about the speed of reading? Some people read very quickly, while others read very slowly. But which one is better? The quick reader may be a good reader when he reads
a storybook for fun. But he may not be able to slow down to read instructions carefully. He may read so quickly that he does not take time to understand fully the ideas and information which are important to remember. The slow reader may be a good reader. But he may spend altogether too much time reading a
simple story which is meant to be enjoyed but is not important enough to be remembered. So you see, neither the reader who reads everything quickly nor the one who reads everything slowly is really a good reader. Here are four important things to remember about the speed of reading:
Knowing why you are reading will often help you to know whether to read quickly or slowly.
Some things should be read slowly throughout. Examples are instructions for making or doing something, maths problems, science and storybooks which are full of important information. You must read such things slowly to remember each important step and understand each important idea.
Some things should be read quickly throughout. Examples are simple stories for enjoyment, letters from friends, and bits of news from hometown papers.
In some of your reading, you must change your speed from fast to slow and slow to fast, as you go along. You will need to read certain pages quickly and then slow down and do more careful reading when you come to important ideas.

Modern life is impossible without traveling. The fastest way of traveling is by plane. With a modern airliner (大客机)you can travel in one day to places which it might take a month or more to get to a hundred years ago.
Traveling by train is slower than by plane, but it has its advantages. You can see the country you are traveling through. Modern trains have comfortable seats and dining cars.They make even the longest journey enjoyable.
Some people prefer to travel by sea when possible. There are large liners（大客轮）and river boats. You can visit many other countries and different parts of your country on them. Ships are not so fast as trains or planes, but traveling by sea is a very pleasant way to spend a holiday.

You can stop wherever you wish, at good restaurants where you can enjoy a good meal, or at a hotel to spend the night. That is why traveling by car is popular for pleasure trips, while people usually take a train or a plane when they are traveling on business.
