1.Stop Doubting Yourself

停止怀疑自己

If you don’t believe in yourself, nobody will. Success starts in your mind, and if all you’re doing is putting yourself down and predicting failure, it’ll become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Instead of doubting yourself, think positively. Not only will you be happier and more successful, you’ll spread it to everyone around you.

如果你自己都不相信自己,那没人会相信你。成功源于你的头脑,如果你所做的是不断地看扁自己,预言着未来的失败,这就真的会成为现实。与其怀疑自己,不如积极的考虑问题。不仅会让自己更加开心和成功,你还能够感染到周围的人。

笑笑讲语法

第一句是if 引导的条件状语从句, 从句是相对于主句而言的,意为“如果”,遵循主句将来时,从句一般现在时,即我们平时说的“主将从现”, 所以句中if引导的从句是一般现在时,主句是will。

最后一句是not only 引导的倒装句。

1. 如果置于句首的Not only… but also仅连接两个并列词语,不可用倒装结构:

Not only you but also I am fond of music

2.只有当Not only… but also连接两个分句时,才在第一个分句用倒装结构:

Not only is he a teacher, but he is also a poet.

词汇讲解

rather than VS instead of

1. 两者词性不同。

rather than 是连词

instead of 是介词短语

2.连接成分不同。

rather than 连接的前后成分一样。

instead of +名词性结构(名词短语、代词宾格、宾语从句等)

eg: I'll go there instead ofhim.

I rather thanhewill go there.

We'd better present the facts and reason things out instead ofquarreling.

It's like a child, raised with hoperatherthanexpectation, love ratherthanfiscal projection.
