Remember that goals are dreams with a timetable. Our goals are important for us to create what enriches our life. A very common attitude among people who are successful is that their success lies in their ability to provide themselves goals that are both numerous and exciting.When you think about your future，you are helping to feed a long-term goal of what you want to create. To realize your dreams，you must translate your vision into a series of actions you can take as soon as possible. You should be able to measure these results，to make sure they take you wherever you want. And this step should not be viewed lightly! Indeed，Very few people set goals and concrete actions for themselves to achieve. Very few ppeople note what they want to accomplish，and know each day whether they have indeed advanced in the direction of their dreams. Therefore one of the secrets that you can get results from is to write down your goals on 4
座位号： paper first. When you give your dreams a form，they become more concrete，and you can refer to them often and easily. Whenever you read the dreams that you note down，you fill your mind with positive and motivational thoughts. Unfortunately，many people stop there. They just simply make wishes, hope and wait. These people do not bring positive difference in their lives，because that sort of behavior is just wishful thinking. Success is not at all a miracle. It depends on clear and realistic targets through serious thoughts： concrete actions and perseverance. Don’t forget， your past does not determine your future.Only your now is your potential! 44. People can achieve success commonly in that they A.have many dreams B.are well-informed of how goals go C.Think a lot about their bright future D.know what the goals are in their life 45.If you put down your goals on the paper，you can A.mention them easily to others B.know clearly what should be done C.measure the results of the goals easily D.make them accomplished smoothly 46.The last paragraph mainly tells that . A.having dreams is very important to everyone B.most people can make a difference in their life C.what people did in the past affects what the are today D.to translate goals into concrete actions is important for success 47.What is the best title for the passage? A.The Power of Your Goals C.The Path towards Your Targets B.The Process of Making Goals D.The Importance of Your Success . .
In 1962，London Bridge was falling down. Built in 1831，the bridge couldn’t handle the ever-increasing flow of traffic across the Thames River. The British government decided to put the bridge up for sale，and Robert McCulloch，Founder of Lake Havasu City，Arizona， submitted the winning bid of $2,460,000. The bridge was taken down， and each stone was numbered. Everything was shipped 10,000 miles to Long Beach，California，and then trucked to Lake Havasu City. Reconstruction began on September 23，1968，with a ceremony including the Lord Mayou of London，who laid the cornerstone. On October 10，1971，the bridge was rebuilt.

Once you walk west under the bridge，you’ll see a walkway which leads up to the London Bridge visitors’center where there are some historical photos and other information about the bridge and other attractions and places of interest within about a 100-mild radius （半径） of Lake Havasu City.

Known as a radio host，Rush Limbaugh landed his first radio job when he was in high school. Then Limbaugh attended Southeast Missouri State University，where he showed interest in nothing but radio. After dropping out of college，Limbaugh went to work at a radio station，but he did not last long. For the next few years ， he changed from station to station. Tom 6
Leathers，publisher of The Squires，knew Limbaugh at the time and recalls， “Limbaugh was nothing special. He did not have that powerful personality you hear now. He was paninfully shy.” Finally， under pressure from his father， who wanted him to give up radio， Limbaugh took a job as a public relations assistant for the Kansas City Royals （a Major League Baseball team） . After five years， Limbaugh left the job because he wanted to work in radio. He soon landed a position at a Kansas City station as a talk show host and commentator. Ten months later，he was fired （解雇） .In fact， he once admitted that he had been fired from all but two of the jobs he ever held. A year went by before a San Diego radio station agreed to give him a chance，mainly because it was in serious financial trouble. The job was exactly the chance he needed. Soon Limbaugh’s three-hour morning show became the most popular program in the city and spread to radio stations across the United States. In 2001， Limbaugh faced a new problem that threatened to take him off the air—deafness. Limbaugh went completely deaf in his left ear and had serious seriou hearing loss in his right.At first，he made an effort to change the way he did his program to cover up his disability. Finally， he told the truth to his listeners and received a cochlear implant operaation，which helped him regain some hearing in his left ear. As of 2008，Limbaughs radio show was still being broadcast on almost six hundred AM radio stations in the United States and on audio streams over the Internet.Limbaugh’s popularity is often said to have breathed new life into AM radio. 52.What Tom Leathers said suggests that .
