How to Be Popular
Most people would like to be popular with others, but not everyone can achieve this goal. What is the secret to popularity? In fact, it is very simple. The first step is to improve our appearance. We should always make sure that we stay in good shape and dress well. When we are healthy and well-groomed, we will not only look better but also feel better. In addition, we should smile and appear friendly. After all, our facial expression is an important part of our appearance. If we can do this, people will be attracted to our good looks and impressed by our confidence.
Another important step is developing more consideration for others. We should always put others first and place their interests before our own. It's also important to be good listeners; in this way people will feel comfortable enough to confide in us. However, no matter what we do, we must not gossip. Above all, we must remember to be ourselves, not phonies. Only by being sincere and respectful of others can we earn their respect. If we can do all of the above, I am sure popularity will come our way.
Learn How to Say No
We've all been taught that we should help people. It is the right thing to do and will make us popular with others. It may even win us favors in return. However, we must be realistic. We can't say yes to every request. If we did, we would fail or go crazy for sure. Sometimes we simply don't have the time to help. In this case, we must know how to say no politely.
When we need to say no, here is one method we can try. First, we should tell the truth. If we really can't do something, we should just say so. Second, we should remember to refuse requests politely. We must communicate clearly, but must also be sincere and sympathetic. A true friend will understand. Finally, we must not feel guilty about saying no. Sometimes refusing others is the right thing to do. It can save ourselves, and them, a lot of trouble. In short, we cannot please everyone all the time. Refusing favors is a part of life.
How to Sell Yourself
In this competitive society it is essential to know how to sell yourself in order to get the job you want. That means you must be able to market your best features and present yourself in the best light. After all, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
There are several things you can do to project a good image in an interview. First of all, look like a winner. Dress conservatively and well, and you'll look like you're going to the top. Second, communicate clearly. Consider each question carefully and respond with total honesty. Remember to make eye contact and maintain good posture. You need to look attentive but also at ease. Third, have a positive and assertive attitude. It's important to appear confident of your ability and optimistic about your future. Finally, be prepared. Present a professional resume and be ready to explain everything in detail.
By following the advice above, you are bound to make a good impression on potential employers. Then you will be able to choose the best opportunity for you and take that first step towards success.
Responsibility is a Badge of Honour for Youth
Facing this audience on the stage, I have the exciting feeling of participating in the march of history, for what we are facing today is more than a mere competition or contest. It is an assembly of some of China's most talented and motivated people, representatives of a younger generation that are preparing themselves for the coming of a new century. I'm grateful that I've been given this opportunity, at such a historic moment, to stand here as a spokesman of my generation and to take a serious look back at the past 15 years, a crucial period for every one of us and for this nation as well.
Though it is only within my power to tell about my personal experience, and only a tiny fragment of it at that, it still represents, I believe, the root of a spirit which has been essential to me and to all the people bred by the past 15 years.
In my elementary years, there was a little girl in the class who worked very hard but somehow could never do satisfactorily in her lessons.
The teacher asked me to help her, and it was obvious that she expected a lot from me. but as a young boy, restless, thoughtless, I always tried to evade her so as to get more time to enjoy myself.
One day before the final exam, she came up to me and said, "Could you please explain this to me? I want very much to do better this time. " I started explaining, and finished in a hurry. Pretending not to notice her still confused eyes, I ran off quickly. Nat surprisingly, she again did very badly in the exam. And two months later, at the beginning of the new semester, word came of her death of blood cancer. No one ever knew about the little task I failed to fulfill, but I couldn't forgive myself. I simply couldn't forget her eyes, which seem to be asking, "Why didn't you do a little more to help me, when it was so easy for you? Why didn't you understand a little better the trust placed in you, so that I would not have to leave this world in such pain and regret?"
I was about eight or nine years old at that time, but in a way it was the very starting point of my life, for I began to understand the word "responsibility" and to learn to always do my duties faithfully and devotedly, for the implications of that sacred word has dawned on me: the mutual need and trust of people, the co-operation and inter-reliance which are the very foundation of human society.
Later in my life, I continued to experience many failures. But never again did I feel that regret which struck me at the death of the girl, for it makes my heart satisfied to think that I have always done everything in my power to fulfill my responsibilities as best I can.
As I grew up, changed and improved by this incident and many other similar ones, I began to perceive the changes taking place around me and to find that society, in a way, was in its formative years like myself. New buildings, new commodities and new fashions appear every day.
New ideas, new information, new technologies. People can talk with each other from any corner of the earth in a matter of seconds. Society is becoming more competitive.
Hi! It’s my pleasure to give the informative speech first. First, I’d like to tell a story, or in other words, a phenomenon. As we all know, there’s a famous politician in Qing dynasty named Zeng Guofan. Zeng holds the highest rank of nobility of all the officials of the Han nationality. Zeng has two outstanding sons, his youngest son is Zeng Jihong, a famous mathematician but died young. Zeng Jihong’s daughter married Yu Mingyi, they are not famous at all. But they have a daughter married Fu Sinian, a very famous scholar at that time. What’s more, they have a son Yu Dawei, Yu was Tai Wan’s former so-called defense minister and a scientist as well. The Yu family is a old and very prominent family in Shao Xing. Yu Dawei’s aunt Yu Mingshi married Chen Sanli, a poet and he died of fast as the Japanese army invaded us. Chen’s son is our well-knowned scholar in studies of Chinese ancient civilization,Chen Yinque. Chen Sanli’s daughter fall in love with Yu Dawei, their son married Jiang Jingguo’s daughter. The Yu family has other members like Yu Mingzhen, another celebrity died young at that time. He is not famous ,but you must know one of his student Mr. Lu Xun. Yu Mingzhen has a grandson we known as Huang Jing,the PRC’s first mayer of Tian Jin. Huang Jing’s wife Fan Jin was an official too but most importantly she is famous historian Fan Wenlan’s sister. But the most incredible fact is their son is our dear president of CPPCC(Chinese people’s political consultative conference) Yu Zhengsheng! Here my story is at an end.So
complex and boring, isn’t it? But that’s not what I’m going to tell. There ‘s a theory in the web that your background is a vital thing that decide which class are you staying. But I’ve seen it in a different way. Now that that phenomenon is common between the celebrities at that time, and it is still making a difference in the modern world. There must be something we ignored. As one generation past away ,they can still have their influence on us.I guess the method is by handing down their wisdom and good family manner. Think about our own family ,there can’t be as much good tradition. I’m not going to tell that you should be with your spouse who is from a famous family,but I do mean though China has a saying:”rich will not last more than three generations”,yet there’s also a saying said by Shakespeare: One night,we can build a nouveau riche,three generations to cultivate an aristocrat. You might come from a rich family ,the past reputation should just make you work hard. You may also from a poor family, but you can change your life quality by work hard too. On my opinion, everyone is not borned to live for their own,what make sense is about how much you have leave for the whole hunan. This do what I really want to share with you. Hope I can cast a brick to attract a jade.Thank you.
篇一：Love in High School
Love in high school is a very sensitive topic, the students in high school have come to the age of being mature, inside, they desire to love someone, but it is the awkward time. First, they need to focus their attention so that they can enter a better college, second, their parents are strongly objective to their love, the teachers even ban the love relationship between students. As a student, they have their own rights to love someone, the inner desire and the objection from parents and schools make them struggle to their emotions. In my opinion, high school students have so many pressure, they should put aside their love emotions for a while, they need to focus on the study, when high school time ends, they can choose their love. It is much easier, if you want to love at the time, then to love. No one will stop you.
篇二：To Enjoy This Moment
Once, my foreign teacher asked us a question“Do you think worrying tomorrow is a good thing?”, I think about this question many times, my answer is absolutely “yes”, but enjoying this moment is more important. In China, it is a tradition that people save the money for tomorrow, so they spend less money; they only buy the things they need, then saving the rest of the money for emergency. In my opinion, people can take out small portion of the emergency money; they can make themselves live more comfortable, they can enjoy the life at this moment. My parents never travel, they think it is a way of wasting money, they consider the money should be used in a suitable way; they save it just in case the emergency. We should learn to make fun, who knows what will happen tomorrow, enjoying the moment makes the life colorful.
Soy food good for women
Women who ate soy regularly as children have a lower risk of breast cancer, American researchers report. And men who eat fish several times a week have a lower risk of colon cancer, a second team of researchers have told the American Association for Cancer Research.
The studies add to a growing body of evidence about the role of diet in cancer. Cancer experts now believe that up to two-thirds of all cancers come from lifestyle factors such as smoking, diet and lack of exercise.
The US National Cancer Institute and researchers at the University of Hawaii found that women who ate the most soy-based foods, such as tofu and miso, when aged 5 to 11, reduced their risk of developing breast cancer by 58 per cent. It was not clear how soy might prevent cancer, though compounds in soy called isoflavones have estrogen-like effects.
A second study showed that men who ate fish at least five times a week had a 40 per cent lower risk of developing colorectal cancer compared with men who ate fish less than once a week.
Many kinds of fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which interfere with the cyclooxygenase-2 or COX-2 enzyme. COX-2 affects inflammation, which may play a role in tumour growth.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Good afternoon!
I?m very glad to stand here and give you a short speech. Today my topic is “youth”. I hope you will like it, and found the importance in your youth so that more cherish it.
First I want to ask you some questions:
1、Do you know what is youth? 2、How do you master your youth?
Youth is not a time of life, it is a state of mind; it is not rosy cheeks , red lips and supple knees, it is a matter of the emotions : it is the freshness ; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life .
Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity of the appetite, for adventure over the love of ease. This often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20 . Nobody grows old merely by a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.
Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self –distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust.
Whether 60 of 16, there is in every human being ?s heart the lure of wonders, the unfailing childlike appetite of what?s next and the joy of the game of living . In the center of your heart and my heart there?s a wireless station: so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope ,cheer, courage and power from men and from the infinite, so long as you are young .
When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you are grown old ,even at 20 , but as long as your aerials are up ,to catch waves of optimism , there is hope you may die young at 80.
青春是追求。只有当勇气盖过怯弱、进取压倒苟安之时，青春才存在。果如此，则60见之长者比20岁之少年更具青春活力。仅仅岁月的流逝并不能使他们衰老。而一旦抛弃理想和信念，则垂垂老也。 岁月只能使皮肤起皱。而一旦丧失生活的激情，则连灵魂枯老，使人生枯如死水，毫无活力。 60岁长者也好，16岁少年也罢，每个人的内心深处都渴望奇迹，都如孩子一般眨着期待的双眼，期待着下一次，期待着生活的情趣，你我灵魂深处都有一座无线电中转站------只有你我年轻，则总能听到希望的呼唤，总能发出喜悦的欢呼，总能传达勇气的讯号，总能表现出青春的活力???
Saying goodbye to childhood,we step into another important time in the pace of young,facing new
situations,dealing with different problems.....
everyone has his ownunderstanding of young,it is a period of time of beauty and wonders,only after you have experienced the sour ,sweet ,bitter and salty can you really become a person of significance.thre time of
young is limitted,it may pass by without your attention,and when you discover what has happened ,it is always too
late.grasping the young well means a better time is waiting for you in the near future,or the situation may be opposite .
having a view on these great men in the history of hunmanbeing,they all made full use of their youth time ,to do things that are useful to society,to the whole mankind,and as a cosquence ,they are remembered by later generations,admired by everyone.so do something in the time of young,although you may not get achievements as these greatmen did ,though not for the whole word,just for youeself,for those around!
the young is just like blooming flowers,they are so beautiful when blooming,they make people feel happy,but with time passing by,after they withers ,moet people think they are ugly.and so it is the same with young,we are enthusiastic when we are young,then we may lose our passion when getting older and older.so we must treasure it ,don't let the limitted time pass by ,leaving nothing of significance.
The Four Wives
Hello, everyone ! I'm very glad to stand here. Let me tell you a little story and I hope you may get inspired.
There was a rich merchant who had four wives. He loved the fourth wife the most and he took great care of her and gave her nothing but the best. He also loved the 3rd wife very much. He is very proud of her and always wants to show her to his friends. He, too, loved his second wife. She is always patient. When the merchant faces some problems she would always help him out. The merchant's first wife has made great contributions and maintaining his wealth and business as well as taking care of the household. However, the merchant didn't love the first wife although she loved him deeply.
One day, the merchant felt ill. Before long, he knew that he was going to die soon. He asked each of his favorite three wives, "I love you, now I'm dying. Will you follow me and keep me company?"
Now guess who is willing to follow him ?
Well, the truth is that none of these three wives is willing to follow him or keep him company. But you know what, at last, a voice called out. "I'll leave with you, I'll follow you wherever
you go."The man looked up and there was his first wife. He was very surprised and said,“I should have taken much better care of you while I could have!”
Actually, we all have 4wives in our lives. The 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we luxuriously making it good, it leaves us when we die. Our 3rd wife is our wealth and possessions. When we die, they all go to others. The 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how close they have been for us when we are alive, the further they can stay with us is up to the grave. The 1st wife is in fact our soul, we often neglected it in our pursuit of material, wealth, though it always sends us a pleasure.Guess what, the soul is actually the only thing that follows us wherever we go. So, we can learn from this story that death is the destination of each human being, when we are alive, we crazily pursue
everything, a large fortune, high social status, good friendship or even great power. But we will lose them all when our life ends. Only our soul or our person's spiritual world totally belongs to us and no one can take it. It is the real fortune that can company us forever no matter who we are and who we are going to be. Now young guys, just take care of our soul and make it stronger, because this can guide you to wherever you want and can bring
you a big success in the future.
Who was the most well-known figure in China last month? It‘s Ma JiaJue—the college student who murdered 4 of his roommates. Many people attributed his crime to his poverty and deficient education. In my opinion, his crime also has much to do with his classmates‘ indifference.
Indifference is a terrible disease in today‘s colleges and the whole society. It‘s not rare that two students who have studied together for 4 years have never spoken to each other. It‘s not rare that a student who has been absent from class for several days is not noticed at all. It‘s also not rare that a student who has severe psychological problems is not cared about at all.
Some people may say ?What the students with psychological problems like Ma JiaJue need is not care but psychotherapy.‖ However, when people are ill, what they need most is not only medical treatment, but also care from people around them. Every smile and every caring word will bring sunshine to their life.
I once heard one of my roommates who was an introverted girl sobbing at mid-night. Being afraid of disturbing her, I sent a text message to comfort her. The next day, she told me that she was crying for not being invited to one of her friend‘s birthday party. She thought she was neglected by others. But my message was really comforting which told her someone still cared about her.
What can we do to prevent the tragedy of Ma JiaJue from happening again? Some people may say ?Let‘s open more psychological courses in schools.‘ and other people may say ?Let‘s donate more money for the poor students.‘ But I‘ll say ―My fellow student, let‘s give more love and care to our roommates, our classmates and every person around us!‖
I Am Tripping My Elephant Here
Once upon a time, a weenie ant was walking on his way. As he was walking, suddenly he felt the ground shaking terribly. He looked around with his paranoid eyes and saw an elephant walking right behind him. Quickly, the little ant covered himself with dirt, but one leg was unfortunately left out. A sparrow saw everything, so she flew down with the purpose of teasing the ant: ―Hey, chicken! Watch out your leg, it‘s out!‖ The ant felt embarrassed at first but then calmly responded: ―Shi…I am going to trip that elephant.‖
Right now, I‘m standing on this glamorous stage. But everything here reminds me of is a not so fun memory. Around this time last year I was in Nanjing competing in another speech contest. That was the first time for me to be in such a large event. Of course the pressure I was under was immense too. After a sleepless and stressful night, I went onto that stage without the feeling in my legs. That speech turned out to be horrible. I don‘t remember how I get down from there, but I do remember afterwards I just wanted to find a hole to hide in just like the ant in the story. Back at my school, it took a long time for me to recover. Thanks to all the help I got from my special friends. My confidence was restored. After rounds of giving speeches and answering tough questions, I am here today. From all that I‘ve been through I‘ve learned that a good future is based on a forgotten past, if I want my life to go on well I have to let go of my past failure. So today, with out fear, I am tripping my elephant again.
大学生英语演讲稿13 Hold Fast To Your Dreams
Hold Fast To Your Dreams
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.
Wow, what a dream it has been for Martin Luther King. But the changing world seems telling me that people gradually get their dreams lost somehow in the process of growing up, and sometimes I personally find myself saying goodbye unconsciously to those distant childhood dreams.
However, we need dreams. They nourish our spirit; they represent possibility even when we are dragged down by reality. They keep us going. Most successful people are dreamers as well as ordinary people who are not afraid to think big and dare to be great. When we were little kids, we all dreamed of doing something big and splashy, something significant. Now what we need to do is to maintain them, refresh them and turn them into reality. However, the toughest part is that we often have no ideas how to translate these dreams into actions. Well, just start with concrete objectives and stick to it. Don‘t let
the nameless fear confuse the eye and confound our strong belief of future. Through our talents, through our wits, through our endurance and through our creativity, we will make it.
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. Hold fast to dreams, for when dreams go, life is a barren field frozen with snow. So my dear friend, think of your old and maybe dead dreams. Whatever it is, pick it up and make it alive from today.
