Why are so many people so afraid of failure?
Quite simply because no one tell us how to fail so that failure becomes an experience that will lead to growth.
We forget that failure is part of the human condition and that every person has the -right to fail.
Most parents work hard at either preventing failure or protecting their children from the knowledge that they have failed.
One way is to lower standard. A mother describes her child's hurriedly-made table as " perfect I" even though it couldn't stand on uneven ( = not same in height) legs. Another way is to shift(转移) blame.
If John fails in science, his teacher is unfair or stupid.
The trouble with failure-prevention methods is that they leave a child unequipped (=unready) for life in the real world.
The young need to learn that no one can be best at everything, no one can win all the time-and that it's possible to enjoy a game when you don't win.
A child who's not invited to a birthday party, who doesn't make the honor roll or the baseball team feels terrible, of course.
But parents should not offer a quick comfort prize or say, "it doesn't matter" because it does.
The young should be allowed to experience disappointment-and be helped to master it.
Failure is never pleasurable.
It hurts grown-ups and children exactly alike.
But it can make a positive contribution to your life once you learn to use it.
Step one is to ask" Why did you fail?" Control the natural impulse (冲动) to blame someone else.
Ask yourself what you did wrong, how you can improve.
If someone else can help, don't be shy about asking them.

Ida Tarbell was one of the first investigative(调查性的) reporters.
She and oilier journalists wrote about the political, economic, and social wrongs in the early 1900's.
President Theodore Roosevelt gave these writers the name "muckraker".
Ida Tarbell accepted the title as a mark of honor, for she thoroughly researched her subjects and carefully documented (用文件证明) her findings.
Alter graduating form Allegheny College, Ida Tarbell became head of a private school-where she also taught eight subjects.
When her contract expired (期满), she began writing magazine and newspaper articles and books.

Like many of my generation. I have a weakness for hero worship.
At some point, however, we all begin to question our heroes and our need for them. This lead us to ask: What is a hero?
Despite immense differences in cultures, heroes around the world generally share a number of characteristics that instruct and inspire people.
A hero does something worth talking about. A hero has a story of adventure to tell and a community who will listen.
But a hero goes beyond mere fame.
Heroes serve powers or principles larger than themselves.
Like high-voltage transformers, heroes take the energy of higher powers and step it down so that it can be used by ordinary people.
The hero lives a life worthy of imitation.
Those who imitate a genuine hero experience life with new depth, enthusiasm, and meaning.
A sure test for would-be heroes is what or whom do they serve?
What arc they willing to live and die for ? If the answer or evidence suggests they serve only their own fame.
they may be famous persons but not heroes.
Madonna and Michael Jackson are famous, but who would claim that their tans find life more abundant?
Heroes are catalysts (催化剂) for change.
They have a vision from the mounlaintop.
They have the skill and the charm to move the masses.
They create new possibilites.
Without Gandhi, India might still be part of the British Empire.
Without Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr. we might still have segregated (隔离的) buses, restaurants, and parks.
It may be possible for large-scale change to occur without leaders with magnetic personalities, but the pace of change would be slow, the vision uncertain, and the committee meetings endless.
64. Although heroes may come form different cultures, they______.
A.generally possess certain inspiring characteristics
B.probable share some weaknesses of ordinary people
C.are often influenced by previous generations
D.all unknowingly attract a large number of fans
65. According to the passage , heroes are compared to high-voltage transformers in that____.
A.they have a vision from the mountaintop
B.they have warm feelings and emotions

Some people argue that the pressures on international sportsmen and sportswomen kill the essence (本质) of sports-seeking for personal excellence.
Children kick a football around for fun.
When they get older and play for local school teams, they become competitive but they still enjoy playing.
A single person's representing his country cannot afford to think about enjoying himself; he has to think only about winning. He is responsible for an entire nation's hopes, dreams and fame.
A good example is the football World Cup.
Football is the world's most important sport.
It is even more important now that the United States is seriously taking it up.
Winning the World Cup is perhaps the greatest of international sporting success. Mention" Argentina" to someone and the chances are that he'll think of football.
In a sense, winning the World Cup put Argentina on the map.
Sports fans and supporters get quite irrational (非理性的) about the World Cup. People in England felt that their country was somehow important after they won in 1966.
Last year thousands of Scots sold their cars, and even-their houses and spent all their money travelling to Argentina where the finals were played.
So I'm arguing that international competition kills the idea of sports? Certainly not. Do the Argentinas really believe that because eleven of their-men proved the most skillful at football, their nation is in every way better than all others?
Not really.
But it' s known that you won, and that in one way at least your country is best.
69. Which is the writer's main purpose in the passage?
A.To explain the role of sport.
B.To compare Scotland with Argentina.
C.To show that Argentina is better than all others.
D.To prove that football is the world's most important event.
70. According to the passage, it a sportsman only thinks about winning, he will______.
A.be irrational     
B.be successful   
C.fail to succeed    
D.lose enjoyment
71. What is the writer's altitude towards international games?
A.Nations that meet on football are unlikely to meet on a battlefield.
B.Nations that win in international games prove best on the sports field at least.
C.Nations that win the football World Cup are considered best in all ways.
D.Nations that give much attention to international competitions are world-famous in many ways.
He was a funny looking man with a cheerful face, good natured and a great talker.
He was described by his student, the great philosopher Plato, as "the best and most just and wisest man."
Yet, this same man was condemned to death for his belief.
The man was the Greek philosopher, Socrates, and he was condemned for not believing in the recognized gods and for corrupting young people.
The second charge stemmed from his association with numerous young men who came to Athens from all over the civilized world to study tinder him.
Socrates method of teaching was to ask questions and, by pretending not to know the an swers, to press his students into thinking for themselves.
His teaching had unsurpassed influence on all the great Greek and Roman schools of philosohy.

Socrates encouraged new ideas and free thinking in the young, and this was frightening to the conservative people.

Yes, many were probably surprised that he accepted death so readily.
