Whatever we do, we should do it with confidence. Equipped with confidence, we can cope with（处理，应付） any challenge and difficulty on the way to achieving our goals. I still remember the hard ti
me when I entered high school. I found myself faced with great difficulty learning English. I was too shy to speak English in class and even failed in my English exams. As a consequence（因 此）, I began to feel frustrated, completely losing confidence in myself. It was at the moment that my teacher Miss Wang encouraged me and gave me some valuable
advice on my studies, telling me never to say “I can’t”. With her help and support, I regained my confidence and began to make steady progress. In my opinion, confidence is of vital importance in our life. If we want to smooth away any obstacle (障碍物) in life, we should have faith in ourselves. If we are to make a difference（有所作为）, we should build up our confidence.
