Confidence is a feeling where you feel capable. Where you believe in yourself. A thought of confidence could be -
“ I can do it.”
This means that whatever you have as your goal, you can achieve it. You only have to believe in yourself. That is, you have to be confident.
Another meaning of confidence is to not be nervous. It is to express your thoughts without feeling nervous. It’s not that you have to not think before you say something or do something. It’s just to not fear what someone else will think of you.
Now I’d like to present a short story on confidence-
The magic of Confidence
Once there was a young girl who used to live in the countryside. She was beautiful, intelligent, kind and simple. There was only one thing that she lacked, and that was confidence. She was nervous and had lost belief in herself.
One day when she was crossing a farm, she saw that the crops were all gone! Surprised, she went to the farmers and asked where the crops were. The farmers tearfully told her that it was one of those soldiers of the evil king of Wales. The king who everyone feared of. The soldiers had taken it all as the droughts caused crop production in Wales to below. So the king ordered to take all the crops from the nearby farms all for himself!
The girl felt angry at the king but was too nervous to say anything.
When she went home, she narrated the incident and her feelings about it to her mother.
Her mother, too, was angry at the king and told her daughter why she didn’t do something about it? The girl replied,” You know that. I am just scared too.”
“Well, this is the scare you have to overcome. Just believe in yourself. I am with you, and I’m sure everyone in this town is with you,” said her mother.
“I’ll think about it,” the girl said
That night the girl had made up her mind to fight with the King and get Justice back. Just by believing in herself…
The next morning she told the entire town her plan. They all readily agreed.
That day they went to the King’s court, and the young girl said,” You have caused us problems. You took our crops away only for yourself. If you take all the food from us, we might die from hunger and then who will grow the crops? Who will serve you food? If you need food, so do we.” The King was taken back with the angry response. He himself, having a nervous daughter, was surprised that the young girl was so confident. Now he had understood the problem clearly, and to everyone’s surprise, the king apologized and promised to take care that everyone had food to eat.
I’m sure you know now what confidence is and what it can do.

Cooperation is the time when you adjust with someone whether you like it or not. It is when you help someone not caring about yourself and putting their needs before yours. Like, if you have a friend who needs immediate help and you have to go to a party so you could adjust and go to the party a little late and help your friend instead. Now I’d like to present a story on cooperation- The Perfect Project Once there was a class who was assigned a project. As they started to begin - “ Listen my plan is to first design the template that’s all that matters” “ No we will research first and that is what I’ll do only me” “I will do the research too” “No we will draw first” The entire class started to fight for what they shall do. Each of them wanted things to go their way. Then one girl stepped up and said “Wait. If we fight like this we will never be able to make a good project. Let’s listen to everybody’s ideas and put them together.” A boy said “I’m w
You must have heard the word “cooperation. What is cooperation? It is nothing but considering and accommodating the ideas of others, rather than only ours and respecting the same too. Cooperation is working with others and working as a team. Here is a story on the importance of cooperation One day an average businessman named Harish was heading towards his office. Hardly after one hour after he reached, his manager called him. He said, “Harish, there is a significant group project that I am making you in charge of. I hope there will be no problems. But if there is, please contact me.” Harish was a kind man and loved working in teams. But the thought of being the senior-most made him bossy and mean. His voice tone became demanding, and slowly his team members stopped liking him. He chose his best team member and made him do all the work. Not one was allowed to help him. There was no teamwork. Harish proudly started presenting the work and told them it had been done by the best team memb

It even helps us in decision making in many situations. Many times when we read, it clears our strain and gives us peace of mind. When I read any book, I imagine a similar character roving in the same story. My favourite books are Mudcrusts, Noddy, Thrilling Illustrated Stories, Tinkle Digest and many more. Books have filled my mind with so much fascination that I am keen to pretend to play the same fantasy with my family and friends. Reading bedtime stories with my mother is the best part of my day. We have immense fun together, and she always teaches me moral values from that story. Reading has improved my vocabulary and communication skills and given me great
