I really don't know, does the remedial course help them or not? From my point of view they can never be able to acquire the language skill unless they try their best.I totally agree with Shampa Mam, they have to involve more with their fellow classmates. I can give the example of Salman Kayes. He has improved a lot by interacting with others.

We never get tired to demand more and more from our lives. Doing such thing we often become dissatisfied for what we don't have. I always thank my Allah for what I have. I got motivation from this post.

To live in the moment, or now, means being conscious, aware and in the present with all of your senses. It means not dwelling on the past, nor being anxious or worrying about the future. When we concentrate our attention on the present we focus on the task at hand. We give our full attention to what we are doing and we let go of outcomes. Seizing each moment in life allows us to prolong its value and make it more meaningful. Rather than seeking quantity of time, when we live in the moment we enjoy and savor every minute. We don't sacrifice quality for quantity. Of course, this doesn't mean we don't need to plan, set goals or prepare for the future. We can do all of these things and still enjoy each moment as it unfolds. For instance, if we have set a goal to exercise each day, we would carry on with it while enjoying the actual process, or moment, of exercising (or at least be in the moment of it). When we train ourselves to live in each moment, we immerse ourselves in it and begin to discover its beauty and wonder. We learn focus and how to manage our energy. Professional athletes understand and employ this kind of focus very well. They know that accomplishment and success are a result of the skillful management and balancing of energy. To make every moment count we must embrace it. Everything we do and every person we come in contact with deserves our full attention. Even when resting we should savor the moment. It gives us the opportunity to recharge, renew and gain clarity. Quite often we put huge expectations on ourselves and our lives. We rush to do this, hurry up with that, without actually enjoying the process. What's the rush? Where do we think we're going? If we don't stop and think about where we're at, we're probably missing the point. Instead, when we appreciate each moment and garner the lessons from it, we live consciously, purposefully and responsibly. Likewise, when we live in the past and don't let go of painful experiences, perceived wrongs, or difficult times, we condemn ourselves to a present and future of the same. We cannot change the past. We can, however, come to terms with it, know that it's over, and move on. Living in the moment means letting go of the past and trusting in the future. When we are positive and optimistic in the present, we open the possibility of a positive and promising future. We owe it to ourselves to make every moment count - now!

Tips for Living in The Moment

    1. Train your mind to focus on the current activity.
    2. Engage in, and feel what you are doing. Enjoy the process.
    3. Learn relaxation techniques in order to be present in each moment.
    4. Take notice of your surroundings - sights, sounds, smells, ambiance.
    5. Listen attentively to the conversation of others, music, even silence.
   6.  Savor your food and drink. Taste each morsel.

Benefits of Living in The Moment

    ✓ You become more connected with your thoughts and feelings
    ✓ Are more connected to others
    ✓ Feel more gratitude and enjoyment of life
    ✓ If you live in the moment, it won't pass you by
    ✓ Feel more focused, peaceful and alive
    ✓ Feel less anxious and fearful

Humanities & Social Science / Overcoming Fear
« on: December 01, 2014, 05:21:08 PM »
Mark Twain said:
"Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear."

Whatever it happens to be, overcoming a fear can be challenging, but when conquered, very liberating. Fear is an emotion experienced in anticipation of some specific pain or danger and is usually accompanied by a desire to flee or fight. It can be real, or imagined. It is certainly not always a bad thing. When fear serves as a warning signal for impending danger or a life-threatening situation, it is necessary and life preserving. If we didn't feel it in certain situations we wouldn't react appropriately and we'd put ourselves at great risk. If a fear is imagined or irrational, it can be paralyzing and hold us back from living life fully and productively. Many imagined fears, such as fear of rejection, looking foolish, or of failure are the types of fears we must learn to manage and overcome. If we let them control our lives, we would never venture forth or strive to become all that we can be. There are, of course, some fears that our having them, or not, doesn't affect our lives. For example, if someone has a fear of public speaking, yet has no need, intention, or desire to speak publicly; trying to conquer the fear is of no consequence.  There is really no motivation, or need, to work on conquering it. If, on the other hand, the fear of public speaking will hold one back from progressing in their career, or getting ahead in any way, then it's time to work on getting rid of it.

Strategies for Overcoming Fear

   1.  Acknowledge the fear: Whether it's imagined or real, the first step in overcoming fear is to admit that it exists. We all have fears; it's human nature. Denying or ignoring them doesn't make them go away.

   2.  Analyze it: Where does it come from? Is it real or imagined? Can it be put in a different context? For instance if you think it through to its logical conclusion, what's the worst that can happen to you? Once you've determined what that might be, ask yourself if you can deal with, or overcome it. More often than not, once you go through the process of analyzing it, the fear isn't as scary as you originally imagined.

   3. Face it: Allow yourself to feel it, and then do it anyway. Act in spite of your fear and treat is as a challenge for personal growth and an opportunity to become stronger.

   4. Be persistent: Do the thing you fear over and over again. By doing it repeatedly it loses its power over you and you become less vulnerable to it.

   5. Develop courage: Sometimes the answer may not be to conquer a particular fear; it may be to develop courage. If you focus too much on any one fear instead of trying to build courage, you may in fact, intensify it. By developing courage you build self-confidence and resilience. You also build a healthy approach towards facing all fear.
