Face up to Ups and Downs

陈蓉

Good morning everyone! I’m glad to give you a speech today. 

I’ve been working in our school for many years, and I just want to be a good teacher teaching good students. Maybe that’s the reason why I’m here. But looking back, I first knew about our school absolutely by accident. It seems a blessing for me, because I’ve met with the most loving colleagues and above all, the most outstanding students here. How about you? Do you still remember how you came across our school and decide to start a new life? I guess it must be a long story. Actually, there is no way we could have predicted what path our life would have taken. We have been taking each day at a time. Now you are here, busy with your study, working out regularly to keep fit, attending lectures to open up your eyes and doing social practice to be closely related to society.  A lot of things to help achieve your full potential and  to be a better person.

Believe it or not, one is fortunate simply because he always has an idea in mind about what he thinks is important and what gives his life meaning and purpose. To be exact, that’s a set of values and conviction, which may make for a personal mission statement. I still remember we carefully examined your academic performance during the admission process, but what sets you apart from so many of your peers is your intellectual vitality and especially your personal belief. You’ve come to the right place and reveal yourselves as the kind of student we most treasure in our school.

But it doesn’t mean that once coming to the right place you will always succeed. There are setbacks and you will experience difficult disappointments. You will be slowed down and sometimes the breath will just be knocked out of you. Talking of this, I guess you’ve heard a song named Believe in Dreams, which is full of passion and inspiration. It tells us if you dare to compete and practice the art of making possible, you can make a difference in your own life, and then in the lives of others.

We are always shocked by seeing a tiny spider working on its huge project—a web which is a hundred times bigger than itself. We always find ourselves astonished at the miracle that a pine should stand straight on the brink of the cliff. And it never fails to arouse our admiration when we are reminded of so many great men who have overcome difficulties and contributed greatly to human life. Such examples are more than I can list. So as your teacher, I just wish you to make at least part of your purpose bigger than you and try your best not to let the situation get the best of you.

To conclude my speech, I’d like to quote a motto from the famous industrialist Henry Ford. “When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”  That’s all. Thank you!

 

Competition

高三4班  刘筠慧

Good morning, everyone

It’s nice to stand here and share with you something about competition. In the 21st century, each of us will encounter all kinds of competition at different stages of life, in exams, games, work and so on. It can be said that competition is an essential part of our life.

    Moderate competition can give us pressure, which inspires us to improve the overall quality of ourselves and be more adaptable to this society. Meanwhile, we can develop a good relationship with our opponents. However, too much attention to competition will bring a heavy psychological burden to ourselves. At this point, if we don't resolve it properly, it will cause adverse effects on our body and mind, and deterioration in interpersonal relationships. As a result, handing competition correctly is very important for senior high school students. Then, what can we do to make it?

    Firstly, we need to keep an ordinary heart instead of caring too much about the results. It is enjoying the process that really matters. All of us should know that it is hard to avoid failure in competition, and no one can win all the time. We need to keep a positive attitude in order to go farther.

    Secondly, treat our opponents well. Boxing champion Ali once said, "Whoever can beat me shows that boxing has developed and this is my lifelong pursuit." Don't treat our opponent as a stumbling block. Actually, when a person lacks an opponent, he will not find room for improvement.

    Finally, learning to outlet pursuit is vital. When we feel confused, we should talk to others as soon as possible. They may offer us lots of valuable suggestions. Other ways, such as listening to music, doing sports can also help us.

    I believe that as long as we follow the above points, we will be able to play a gorgeous part in every competition.

That's all. Thanks for your listening.
