Every single thing you are not satisfied with in your life is a result of a bad habit. If you don’t have enough money，it’s because bad habits kept you from taking action. If you are not as fit as you would like to be, it’s because of bad habits that kept you glued to the couch.
Would you like to change that ? The only thing that separates successes from failures is successful habits. But developing good habits is easier said than done. We find it hard to build good habits because we spend every day floating down the river of life with no oars (浆) .So what should we do?
Henry Ford said it best, “Whether you think you can,or you think you can’t，you’re right. ” Belief is the root of change. The strongest force in human behavior is the need to act in line with our self-identity or our belief of who we are. To change a habit, you must believe that you can actually do it.
Often our habits are so conditioned into our being that we move through those patterns without any thought or consciousness as to what we are doing. Interrupting the old patterns creates a space for new ones. A few ways to interrupt your pattern are to shock yourself or say something funny that makes you laugh or interrupt it through some physical action. One woman put a can of dog food next to her fridge to interrupt her pattern every time she reached out for some junk food.
The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. The goal is to get you out of a preprogrammed way of being by engaging in a behavior that shocks you，so as to change your state and help you move into another pattern.
It is our children and our children ' s children who________pay for the mistakes we make today.
A.will have to
D.are able to

Directions：Translate the following passage into Chinese and put your translation on the ANSWER SHEET.
We do not often consider how much energy goes into creating comforts like hot showers and cold beer. A more efficient refrigerator will give us the same cold beer while using less energy. A more water-efficient showerhead will give us the same hot shower while using less water; less water requires less energy. By being more efficient, we use less energy, requiring fewer resources and less money.
We have a lot of opportunities for energy efficiency at home. Whether you are ready to upgrade an appliance to an ENERGY STAR rated model or replace conventional light bulbs with more efficient ones, you will enjoy the same level of comfort in your daily life while saving both energy and money.
