rting with little or no confidence? True self-confidence isn't an overnight acquisition. It takes dedication to realize you are a good human being that is worthy of respect and love. Recognize your insecurities What does that voice in the back of your mind say? Why do you feel uncomfortable or ashamed of yourself? This could be anything from regrets to friends at school or negative experience. Whatever is making you feel unworthy, or ashamed, identify it, give it a name, and write it down. You can also tear these written pieces to start feeling positive on those points. Get rid of insecurities gradually Each day you should weaken it. There's no quick fix. Get to the root of the problem; focus on it and understand that you need to resolve each issue before you can move on. Check if it is an old past emotion and if it is really still relevant or applicable in your life today. And that does not mean you have to get rid of whatever makes you feel bad (many times, you simply can't). You need to learn to accept yourself, your past, your circumstances as they are, without necessarily thinking of them as “bad”. Identify your successes Everyone is good at something, so discover the things at which you do extremely well, then focus on your talents. Give yourself permission to be proud of them. Give yourself credit for your successes. Inferiority (自卑) is a state of mind in which you've declared yourself a victim. Do not allow yourself to be victimized. Be Positive Avoid self-pity, or the pity and sympathy of others. Never allow others to make you feel inferior—they can only do so if you let them. If you continue to dislike
and look down upon yourself, others are going to do and believe likewise. Instead, speak in a positive way about yourself, about your future, and about your progress. Do not be afraid to show your strengths and qualities to others. By doing so, you strengthen those ideas in your mind and encourage your growth in a positive direction. Apply “facial feedback theory” Studies surrounding what’s called the "facial feedback theory" suggest that the expressions on your face can actually encourage your brain to express certain emotions. So look in the mirror and smile every day, and you might feel happier with yourself and more confident in the long run. Help others When you know you’re of help to the people around you, and are making a positive difference in other people’s lives (even if it's just being kinder to the person who serves you coffee in the morning), you'll know that you are a positive force in the world—which will boost yourself confidence. Now, dear friends, will you let confidence keep you company? Be confident, and accomplishing your goals will be just around the corner.

B 2016 高考训练题。阅读理解。 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出最佳选项。 Here’s a movie-a sharp, sugar-rush of fun that’s guaranteed to entertain the entire family. With some terrific computer-generated effects, a great cast and a fun-packed storyline,
Robots is the best animated film(动画片) since The Incredibles. Yep, it really is that
good. Set in a world populated by robots, Ewan McGregor plays Rodney Copperbottom, a young robot who leaves his small-town home to pursue his dream of becoming an inventor. But after arriving in Robot City, his hopes of getting a job at Bigweld Industries are destroyed when he learns the firm has been taken over by the evil Ratchet (Greg Kinnear). Egged on by his controlling mum, Madame Gasket(Jim Broadbent), Ratchet plans to reduce half on Robot City’s citizens to scrap metal by refusing to sell the spare Pans they need to survive. Instead, he wants to make a fortune selling expensive upgrades that few can afford. As he says, “Why be you when you can be new?” Aided by a few misfit robots known as the Rustles-including Robin Williams as the cowardly(胆小的) Fender (“I’m made of a metal called Afraidium”)-Rodney must track down the firm’s founder, Bigweld(Mel Brooks), and convince him to save the city from Ratchet’s plans. The first thing that’ll strike you about the movie is the thought that’s gone into creating Robot City. It’s a wondrous world full of mechanical marvels including wind-up cars and walking streetlamps. Also terrific are the special effects. This might be animated movie but at times you’ll catch yourself thinking it’s really a live-action film. Of course, there have been plenty of animated movies that looked the part but were
let down by a weak storyline(see Shark Tale, for example). But Robots grips(扣人心弦)right from the start thanks to a heart-warming and thoroughly engaging plot that never bores. My only complaints are with Williams who, as usual, has a one-in-10 success rate with his jokes. Also a letdown is a romantic subplot between Rodney and a shapely robot called Cappy(Halle Berry)that doesn’t go anywhere. Complains aside, this is a mechanical marvel that’ll have you bolted firmly to your seat. BEST QUOTE(引述)：Fender：“Even though you had a discouraging day, just remember there’s another one coming tomorrow. BEST BIT：Check out those amazing images. WORST BIT：Robin Williams’ character does an unfunny Britney Spears dance routine. IF YOU LIKED?Ice Age, The Incredibles, Toy Story?YOU’LL LIKE THIS. 1. This piece of writing is a _____. A. commercial advertisement essay 2. The cast Of Robots is made up of all the following actors or actresses EXCEPT ______. A. Ewan McGregor B. Robin Williams C. Britney Spears D. Halle Berry B. film review C. movie poster D. 1iterary
3. What is Shark Tale an example of? A great cast. animation. 参考答案 1—3、BCB B. A poor plot. C. Special effects. D. Clumsy
四、七选五 【长春市普通高中 2016 届高三质量监测（一） 】 根据短文内容， 从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。 选项中有两项为多余选项。 36 What we consider polite at home isn’t always accepted outside our
borders. Don’t be regarded rude or disrespectful on your travels. Gift giving should be a happy, positive experience. 37 Giving sharp, pointy
objects as gifts is considered unlucky. Be careful when presenting flowers in Russia. Yellow flowers suggest cheat or a relationship breakup. 38 Writing cards or
notes while visiting South Korea, be mindful of your pen’s ink color. Writing a person’s name in red ink traditionally suggests that the person has passed away. 39 If you are invited over to someone’s home for a meal, it’s recommended
that you arrive 10 to 15 minutes later than the requested time. When having a meal in Egypt, don’t use the saltshaker (调味瓶). Spreading salt on your food means you find the meal terrible. Japan is a very polite nation, and their politeness extends to the mealtime use of chopsticks. It’s considered ill-mannered to point or play with food with chopsticks. 40 Using the end that touches your mouth is extremely
offensive (冒犯的), not to mention unhygienic (不卫生的).
A. When selecting a present in the Netherlands, don’t buy kitchen knives or scissors. B. Punctuality is considered to be good manners all over the world. C. When traveling, it’s important to learn about the customs of the global village. D. Red carnations（康乃馨）are usually presented to Mothers. E.
