Finally, I got a part – time job working at the local coffee shop. I had figured that the job would be easy. However, the actual situation was not what I had expected. The customers were hard to please. There was always too much sugar, too little ice, or not enough skimmed milk. However, I kept at it.
One rainy day, Hank, one of my regular customers, came in looking sad and defeated. I asked what the problem was sand if we could help, but Hank wouldn’t tell me any details. He just said he felt like going to bed, pulling the sheets up over his head, and staying there for a few years. I knew exactly how he felt.
Before he left, I handed him a bag of his favorite type of doughnuts along with his iced coffee. He looked at me skeptically because he hadn’t ordered anything else except iced coffee.
“It’s on me,” I told him. “Have a nice day.”
He smiled and thanked me before turning around and heading back out into the rain.
The next day was a horrible one. The rain kept pouring down and I spent my afternoon hanging out the window, handing people their orders. What’s worse, no one felt like tipping that day.
However, around 7:00 pm, Hank drove up to the window. Instead of ordering anything, he handed me a single pink rose and a little note. He said that few people take the time to care about others nowadays and he was glad there we still people like me in the world. I was speechless and very touched; I hadn’t thought that I had done anything incredible.
The note read:
Thanks for being so sweet, kind and thoughtful yesterday. I was sincerely touched by you. It is so nice to meet someone that’s nice, warm, sensitive and unselfish. Please don’t change your ways because I truly believe that you will excel. Have a great day!
Later, I did come across more complaining customers. But anytime I felt sad or just sick of coffee, I thought of Hank and his kindness. Then I would smile, hold my head up high, clear my throat and ask politely, “How can I help you?”

Mr Smith was the manager of a hotel in Springfield. One weekend all of the hotels in the city were full because there was a large meeting. Late in the evening three men came into the hotel and asked for rooms. Mr Smith explained that because of the meeting, there were no rooms ready for use. The men were very unhappy because they had no place to stay in.
Mr Smith wanted to help them. He remembered that Room 414, a very small room, was empty. He asked them if they would share a room. The three men agreed. Mr Smith told them that the room would cost $30: $10 for each. Each of them gave Mr Smith $10, and they went up to the room.
Mr Smith soon began to feel sorry. “Thirty dollars is too much for that small room,” he thought. He called one of his men over and said, “Here is $ 5. Bring it to the man in Room 414. I’ve asked too much money for their room.”
The worker took the money from his manager. While he was on his way to Room 414, he started to think, “How can I divide $5? Well, I’ll give each of them only $1 and I keep $2. The men will be happy to get anything back. I’ll make a little money and Mr Smith will never know.” So he returned $1 to each man.

Every time it’s your birthday, I remember all the great birthday parties you gave me when I was growing up．I especially remember the one when I turned to 16, and the words you and Dad said to me．Now I hope you enjoy the birthday party I’m holding for you．
It’s over! High school is now part of the past．But consider what your graduation day really means, aside from the gifts．It’s the beginning of a life filled with goals that only you can attain．You’ve made it through 4 important years, and we’re confident you’ll make it through anything else you’ll have to face．
I’m 16, but my grandmother treats me as if I were 5．She uses a baby voice around me, which is really annoying, but I’m afraid to say anything because I don’t want to make her feel bad．How can I tell her my feelings, and let her know I’m growing up?
I was almost unwilling to open your gift because it was so wonderfully wrapped．The paper was just lovely! I want to thank you for thinking of me．I’m sure you spent hours making this lovely sweater, and it’s so soft that I feel as if you’ve sent me 100 hugs．Every time I wear it I’ll think of you．
E．Dear Aunt Pam,
Thank you so much for the cards and gifts you sent me for Christmas．I hope Uncle Mike and Little John are well．Next week I’m going to my father’s for the holiday．I wonder if you could come down and visit us．I haven’t seen you for nearly two years!
I think you’re the greatest．I know you have faults, but I can’t think of any at the moment．You deserve much more than this small gift in return for everything that you’ve done for me, but it’s all that I can afford．Hopefully, by the time I become a mom, I’ll be able to be as giving to my child as you’ve been to me．
I understand exactly what you’re telling me, and I think this problem is very common．Don’t forget that, from your grandmother’s perspective, even your father and mother are just babies．Talk with your parents and ask them to talk with your grandmother．I’m sure they’ll be able to explain to her that it’s time to stop．
Glad to hear from you! We haven’t seen each other since waiting at the Cincinnati Airport for that connection to London．And I’m really missing you! I’d love to see you, but Mike and I plan to visit the Lake District then．Please say hello to your dad．
My dear son, you’re growing up so fast, and turning into an impressive person．I was so excited that I couldn’t fall asleep after the party．You know, you really gave me a big surprise when I entered the room, and made me realize how considerate and kind you’ve turned out to be．
Thank you so much for your gift．Best of all for me, though, was to see that you’ve become an independent woman．I’m sure you’ll succeed in whatever you do, sooner or later．And some thing you can be sure of: I’ll always be proud of you!
You are the most caring and self-accepting person I know．I think of you as my soul sister．At this special moment, this sweater I made with my own hands seems like the best way to express my feelings．I wish you a great birthday, and a great year ahead．

Question: Before graduation, I decided to be a useful man for our country. However, when I applied for some positions, I was turned down. Only then did I realize it was not easy to achieve my dream. 1 Now I even don’t have the courage to try a new position. How can I find the power to continue my dream?
Answer: I can understand the situation you are in. You feel your life lacks the power that you want and the motivation that you need. 2
By training your thoughts to concentrate on the bright side of things, you are more likely to have the incentive (动机) to work towards on your goals. 3
Your life can be improved, and your happiness enriched when you choose to change your views. Don’t leave your future to chance, or wait for things to get better mysteriously alone. 4 Begin to build your confidence, and work through problems rather than avoid them. Remember that power is not just about control over situations, but the ability to deal with whatever comes your way.
Always believe that good things are possible, and remember that mistakes can be lessons that lead to discoveries. Take your fear and transform it into trust. 5 Turn your “worry hours” into “productive hours”. You will see beautiful things happen when you allow yourself to experience the joys of life.
A. What you need is to change your goal.
B. The fact that the positions were not offered to me beat me.
C. Learn to rise above anxiety and doubt.
D. You are less likely to be held back by negative ideas that might limit your performance.
E. Unfortunately, many people haven’t realized it.
F. Actually all you have to do is change your points of view.
G. You must go in the direction of your hopes and ambitions.
