Speaker 1: When my friends asked me to take part in a marathon to raise money for a children’s charity, I was completely unfit. I had just four months to get into shape, but I was determined to do it! The training was hard at first but I didn’t give up. Gradually, I got stronger and slowly built up my speed. The big day finally came and I completed the whole 26 miles, with the crowd cheering excitedly. And later on, when we donated the money for the needy kids, I felt so happy to be doing something worthwhile.
Speaker 2: I was worried that I was becoming a TV addict. I spent hours every evening watching all kinds of rubbish. Even at mealtimes, I had a programme playing in the background. I was really hooked. Then I decided to challenge myself. Could I go a whole week without turning the television on? It seemed impossible, but I tried to keep myself busy; I went for long walks, read books and even tidied all the kitchen cupboards! At the end of the week I realised I didn’t actually miss it at all!
Speaker 3: When I injured my legs in a car accident, the doctor said I wouldn’t walk again, but I refused to listen to him. I’m a film director and I had a great idea for a new film. Nothing was going to stop me! After six months of physiotherapy, I knew I wasn’t working my legs hard enough. I made a habit of taking a few slow painful steps every day with the help of a stick. Each day I pushed myself a little further. A year later, to my doctor’s amazement, I’m walking around my film set!
Speaker 4: I love high-adrenalin activities, so I try any extreme sport that comes my way – bungee jumping, white water rafting, you name it. Then someone suggested skydiving! Jumping out of a plane at 15.000 feet sounded like the ultimate thrill. The day arrived and the instructor and I were getting ready to jump. Suddenly my legs turned to jelly, my heart started pounding and my mouth went dry. With the help of my instructor, though, I overcame the panic attack. Next thing, I was flying through the air at a hundred miles an hour!
Speaker 5: Everyone knows me at the driving test centre. That’s because I have taken my driving test five times! Each time I got so nervous I kept making silly mistakes, failure is hard to accept, but I was such a bag of nerves I was ready to quit. Then I saw an advert for relaxation classes. They were a bit expensive, but I decided to enroll. I learnt breathing exercises and how to think more positively. Feeling more relaxed and confident, I applied to take my test for the fifth time. And guess what? I passed?
