  • 觉得自己不够好?你需要记住的14句话

    2014-12-26

    1. There Really Is More Right With You Than Is Wrong

    你身上对的总比错的多。

    Time for a little pep talk here. The truth of the matter is that while it may feel like it, you don’t screw up anymore than anyone else. Cut yourself some slack; you are as human as the rest of us and you need to remember that mistakes are part of life. Time to stop comparing yourself with others and live your best life.

    该讲些打气的话了。事实上,尽管有时觉得自己错得不行,但实际上你并没有比其他人搞得更砸。放自己一马吧;你也跟大家一样只是个普通人而已,请记住:错误也是生活的一部分。所以别再拿自己跟别人比较了,努力过好自己的生活吧。

    2. Accept The "Now" And Move On

    接受“现在”,继续前行。

    There is a certain power to accepting the circumstances and having the mind-set to carry on and move forward. Give yourself the gift of forgiving yourself from the mistake made, the stutter, or the stumble. Forgiveness begins at home and you really should accept the situation as a temporary one in order to move forward.

    有一种力量可以让你接受环境,使你拥有继续前行的心态。原谅自己所犯的错误、磕绊或失足吧。发自内心地宽恕自己,相信目前的境遇只是暂时的,你可以继续前行。

    3. Be Gentle With Yourself

    温柔对待自己。

    Max Ehrmann wrote, "Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here." Gentler, more honest words have ever, ever been written. Psychologists now claim that a shocking secret to success is indeed being kind to yourself. The secret is to value yourself as much as, but no more than, you do others.

    马克斯-厄尔曼写道:“要温柔对待自己。你同树木繁星一样,也是宇宙之子,你有权利生存在这个世界上。”如此温柔透彻的句子!心理学家发现,成功的一个惊人秘密就是“温柔对待自己”。这个秘密就是,你要如同尊重别人一样尊重自己。

    4. Focus On Progress Rather Than Perfection

    重在进步,而非完美。

    People plagued with the ideal of perfectionism, believe it or not, is a stopping point. The attempt to be perfect, rather than driving you forward, is punishing and stops a forwardmomentum. Instead, focus on progress made in order to continue down the path of success. Certainly it is not easy, and it’s an issue that many struggle with. The fact is, that no one or thing is ever perfect.

    不论信与不信,人们多少总觉得完美主义才是终点。对完美的追逐并不能使你前进,反倒会削弱前进的动力。其实,若想取得成功,应该更注重进步。当然这并非易事,很多人都为此不断努力。现实是,没有任何人或任何事是完美的。

    5. Make A Decision To Stop Feeling Terrible

    下定决心不再情绪低落。

    Shockingly, the decision not to perpetuate negative self-talk can be a boost and a boon to negative self-reflection. It takes the mind-set to believe that you are worthy of the challenge and in so being good enough to work through the situation, whatever it may be. In this way, you empower yourself to continue onward.

    令人惊讶的是,不再继续消极地自言自语的决心,能极大地驱散消极的自我反省。新的心态会让你相信自己有能力应对挑战、应付当前情况下的任何工作。这样,你便赋予了自己继续前进的力量。

    6. Stay Positive And Move Forward

    保持积极,不断前进。

    This is indeed very difficult. It is so very easy to think only of the negative and stay down in the wicked rut. There really is power in positive thinking. Instead of the woulda-coulda-shoulda, think of the can do and will do. Positive thinking puts power in your mind to act instead of staying stuck mulling over the circumstance or the mistake made.

    这个真的很难。人们太容易只想着消极面然后一蹶不振了。积极思维真的充满了力量。与其不断假设如何如何,不如想想自己能做什么,然后采取行动。积极的想法让你充满能量,不再陷在已经发生的情况或错误之中。

    7. Try A Different Angle

    尝试不同的角度。

    Need that passing grade? Or perhaps this is something that simply has to be done and cannot be ignored or move forward from. Maybe it is a task that has to be done, but you feel it is demeaning or degrading. That’s ok. Sometimes changing the way you think of a difficult task may be enough. Or use a different technique for getting the work done.

    需要升级?或者遇上了必须得完成、无法回避或跳过的事情?或许这个任务必须得完成,但你却觉得不太值得。这没什么。有时只要改变一下你看待困难任务的方式就行了。或者尝试换个方法搞定工作吧。

    8. Find A Way To Love Yourself

    找到爱自己的方式。

    The key to loving yourself is accepting yourself as you are. Of course, this does not mean not attempting to improve yourself. It does mean accepting yourself for who you are, accepting responsibility for the mistake you’ve made, and moving on. It is important not to stop from any one given mistake, but instead to keep going.

    爱自己的关键是接受本真的自我。当然,这并不意味着停止不前,而是要你接受自己本来的样子,为所犯的错误承担责任,然后继续前行。千万不要因为某个错误而搁浅,你应该继续前进。

    9. Stop Comparing Yourself To Other People

    停止拿自己与他人比较。

    There can only be one you, warts and all. The truth of the matter is that while we are acutely aware of our mistakes, we rarely see the mistakes of others. We do see their achievements and successes. And unless we live with them, we tend to see others only when they are at their best. No one can be at their best all day, every day. They make mistakes for better or worse, the same as anyone else.

    不论优缺点如何,这世上只有一个你。其实,尽管我们很清楚自己的错误,却很少看到别人的——我们只看到他们的成就与成功。而且,除非住在一起,否则我们往往只会看到他们最好的一面。没有人可以一直处于最佳状态。每个人都会时不时地犯些错误。

    10. Learn To Appreciate What You Have

    学会珍惜已经拥有的。

    Certainly you have more than some and less than others. It may help to keep in mind that some people do not have as much as you, even if you only have a little. Get to know someone who has less than you, through volunteering or simply talking with others you may not normally talk too. Practice gratitude by reaching out to the people who have been important in your life.

    自然,你所拥有的应该比上不足比下有余。如果你能提醒自己:虽然拥有得很少,但还有人不如自己,或许会乐观很多。通过参加志愿活动,或跟那些平常不太接触的人交谈,去了解不如自己的人吧。学会感恩,多联系那些在你生活中非常重要的人。

    11. The Truth Is, Life Really Isn’t Fair

    现实是——生活确实不公平。

    And such a cruel truth it is. People who don’t deserve a terminal illness get sick and die. Others have trouble follow them around like an unruly puppy. Unfortunately, there isn’t a whole lot you or anyone else can do about this reality. Get to know others and lean on them when possible. Talk with people who share the same burden to learn how to cope and to help you through life’s tasks.

    现实就是这么残酷。不该患绝症的人却病逝,还有些人麻烦总是如影随形。不幸的是,你或其他任何人对现实都无能为力。但你可以去了解他人,并在必要时依靠他们。和志同道合的人交流,进而学会如何应付生活中的问题。

    12. Some Things Are Not As They Appear

    有些事情并非看到的那样。

    Due to the fact that we are really voyeur’s in other people’s lives, we have no idea how they have accomplished one thing or another. For example, one person may have the required experience for a job, while another had the right connections. The fact is, we do not know and have no way of knowing how a person is maneuvering through his or her life.

    人们都很爱窥探别人的生活,但又压根儿不知道别人是怎样一次又一次取得成功的。举个例子,某人或许具备某份工作所要求的经验,但另一个人却拥有不错的人际关系。事实是,我们不知道、也没有办法知道别人是如何经营各自生活的。

    13. Change What You Can And Learn To Accept What Can’t Be Changed

    改变自己能够改变的,接受那些不能改变的。

    Take control of areas of your life when you can. A good place to start is how you problem-solve or think about a situation. You can control how a problem is approached and how you will deal with the problem. While nothing can change the past, there are steps you can take toward a brighter future. What are the goals you can begin today toward where you want to be?

    在力所能及范围内经营好自己的生活。如何解决问题或看待某个情形便是不错的开端。你可以控制问题的出现及其解决办法。虽然无法改变过去,但你可以采取行动创造一个更美好的未来。今天你可以开始怎样的目标,进而实现自己的渴求呢?

    14. Don’t Forget To Get Started

    不要忘记开始行动。

    It is very easy to simply stop forward momentum and dwell on all that has gone wrong. Make the commitment to change, whatever that change may be. Keep a journal as progress is made. In this way, you can physically see the progress being made. It is always a good thing to break the process into smaller steps while advancing toward a specific goal.

    人们很容易停止前进,一味陷在已经错发的一切。不论改变是什么,请努力做出改变吧。以日记的形式记录下进步。这样,你能清晰看到取得的进步。在实施具体目标时,最好把整个过程分成几个小阶段,这样比较有益。

  • 你需要怎样的朋友?

    2014-4-20

    \

    Just like a band or gang of superheroes needs members who have different talents and powers, a circle of friends should have exactly the same thing. It's important to have diversity and to be able to look for support from a variety of sources. They also help us to keep broader perspective on life。
    就像一个乐队或是一群超级英雄需要具有不同天赋和能力的成员,一个朋友圈也应这样。拥有差异性并且能够从各种来源中寻求支持很重要,他们也可以帮助我们拥有更广阔的视野。

    You need different types of friends in the same way that you need food from different food groups. Different types of friends serve different purposes and nourish and enrich our lives in different ways。
    你需要不同类型的朋友,就像你需要不同种类的食物一样。不同类型的朋友有不同的作用,他们以不同的方式来丰富我们的生活。

    While many of us are lucky to count our real friends on one hand, there are certain types of people it’s good to have around. So, how many do you know?
    虽然很多人都很幸运的拥有真正的朋友,但有几种类型的朋友确实值得拥有。那么你知道几种呢?
      

    1. The friend who is cooler than you
    比你更酷的朋友


    The world changes quickly and some people are just that little bit better at keeping up with what's hip than we are. Like those friends who know that NO ONE EVER says "hip" any more, for instance. We like to be around these people, because they're a beacon of cool. Cool things just flock to them.

    这个世界瞬息万变,总有一些人比我们更了解什么是流行,就像有些朋友们知道现在没有人再说“hip”这个词。我们喜欢围绕着这些人,因为他们是流行的指向标。潮流朝着他们蜂拥而至。

    These are the people who help you to open your eyes, have a flow-on effect for introducing you to other cool people and help to unstick yourself from the rut that's all too easy to get bogged in. These people enrich your life by exposing you to things that may have otherwise have passed you by。

    这些人开阔了你的视野,让你认识到更多的潮人,使我们打破常规,突破自我。他们向你展示一些你可能已经错过的东西,从而丰富我们的生活。

    2. The friend who is up for anything
    时刻待命的朋友


    People are busy, we get it. But there's nothing more frustrating than having to reschedule your re-re-re-scheduled catch-up. Everyone needs a friend who you can call at the drop of a hat. A friend who says "hell yeah, I'm up for that". That's why it's good to have a mate who you don't need to issue a 28-day notice to just to meet for a frappuccino. It's refreshing (the friend, that is, not necessarily the frappuccino。
    我们知道现在每个人都很忙,但最令人沮丧的事就是:你不得不一次次重新安排你的行程。每个人都需要一个随叫随到的朋友,他会对你说:“嗨,我就来。” 我们不需要为了一杯咖啡提前28天预约,这就是拥有这类朋友的好处,这令人感到愉快。(这种朋友不仅可以和你一起喝咖啡的,也可以和你一起经历人生。)

    This friend is the flexible, no frills friend who makes your life a breeze. Nothing is ever too hard and they're open to doing new things and changing plans at short notice. Their enthusiasm is contagious and you always have more fun when they are around。
    这种朋友是灵活的,不会摆架子来搅乱你的生活。对他们而言,没有什么事情是不可克服的,他们乐于去尝试做一些新鲜而又刺激的事情。他们的热情会感染你,当你待在他们身边时你总能收获更多的欢乐。

    3. The friend who you aspire to be
    令你渴望成为他那种人的朋友

      
    Oprah Winfrey once said: "Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher". And we all need to live life a little bit closer to Oprah. These people challenge you to be the best version of yourself. The only downside is that sometimes they can be infuriating and inspiring in equal measure. This friend is only an important role model if they behave in ways that are authentic and genuine. They will see the best in you and give you important feedback on both your strengths and weaknesses.

    "奥普拉·温弗瑞曾说:“和那些可以让你提升自己的人在一起。” 我们都需要像奥普拉那样生活。这些人可以激励你变得更优秀,唯一的不足就是,有时在他们激励你的时候又会使你恼羞成怒。如果他们的行为是真诚的,那么他们就是你很重要的行为榜样。他们会看见你最好的一面,也会指出你的优劣。

    4. The friend who doesn't know any of your other friends
    与你其他朋友不相干的朋友

      
    We like integration. We like killing two birds with one stone by catching up with several groups of friends at once. But there are times when you need to make an S.O.S call to a friend who is completely uninvolved and removed from a situation who can offer objective advice so it a bonus that your friendship exists without orbiting around your other ones.
    我们喜欢结伴而行,我们喜欢同时交好多朋友以达到一箭多雕的目的。但是有时我们需要一个可以发出“急救信号”的朋友,他与这件事毫不相干但是可以提供客观的建议。你们的友谊在这个朋友圈之外也可以存在,这是一件令人高兴的事。

    There is a level of privacy to this friendship that doesn't exist in friendship circles. It will be easier to share some of your hopes and dreams, fears and concerns knowing that they are not going to be discussed when you're not around。
    这种朋友圈之外的友谊拥有一定程度的隐私。你可以很轻松的倾诉你的希望、梦想、恐惧和担忧,而不用担心你不在场时被别人议论。

    5. The friend who is painfully honest
    犀利却诚实的朋友


    An honest friend will not always tell you what you want to hear, but they'll certainly tell you what you need to know like if he/she is really that into you. When you've got a crisis on your hands or need to make a quick decision they are your go-to. They're also there to keep you away from mixing paisleys and stripes.
    一个诚实的朋友不会总讲那些你想听的话,但如果他/她是真的关心你,他们会不时的讲一些你想知道的事。在紧要关头或面临进退两难的境地时,他们就是你的首选。他们会让你远离那些麻烦事。
      
    This type of friend has the strength of feedback and is a pearl who will tell it to you straight when others won't or will sugarcoat things at the very least. This friend is someone who does it with good intentions and for your own benefit。
    这种朋友有很强的反馈力,他会直言不讳的告诉你别人不愿说或掩饰的事实。这种朋友这样做是出于好意,是真心为你着想的。

    6. The friend you've known than you've known yourself
    了解你更胜于你了解自己的朋友

      
    History. Sometimes it works to your advantage, other times it doesn't. This is that friend who sees you out of the context of your job, your relationship, your other friends and your life as it is now. This is the friend who knew you when you had pimples and a bowl cut.
    历史有时候会对我们产生有利的影响,有时候则相反。这些是能看到你的工作背景、人际关系、恋爱关系和现有生活之外的朋友。他们知道你什么时候有过粉刺,什么时候剪过西瓜头发型,他们非常了解你。
      
    There is something special about this person because they feel like home. It's nice and comforting to be around someone who has known you forever. This is a friend you never have to put on a brave face for. They know you better than you know yourself and accept you unconditionally.
    在他们身上有一些特别的东西,让你感觉像家人一样亲切。和了解你的人待在一起,会让你感觉很舒服。你不必在他们面前故作坚强,他们比你更了解你自己,而且毫无条件的接受你。

  • 成功者与平庸者之间的十大差距

    2014-4-20

    Below are the 10 differences between successful people and unsuccessful people.

    下面为大家介绍成功者与平庸者之间的10大区别:

    1. Embrace change vs. Fear change

    接受改变 vs. 惧怕改变

    Embracing change is one of the hardest things a person can do. With the world moving so fast and constantly changing, and technologyaccelerating faster than ever, we need to embrace what’s coming and adapt, rather than fear it, deny it or hide from it.

    一个人最难做的事情之一就是接受改变。这个世界进步太快,随时随地都在发生着改变,而科技也是日新月异。我们应该接受即将到来的改变,并适应这样的改变,而不是害怕、否认、逃避。

    2. Want others to succeed vs. Secretly hope others fail

    希望他人成功 vs. 暗地里希望他人失败

    When you’re in an organization with a group of people, in order to be successful, you all have to be successful. We need to want to see our co-workers succeed and grow. If you wish for their demise, why even work with them at all?

    和一群人在一家公司工作的时候,你要想成功,那么所有人都必须成功。我们应该希望看到自己同事的成功和进步。如果你希望他们失败,那还为什么要和他们一起工作呢?

    3. Accept responsibly for your failures vs. Blame others for your failures

    勇于承担失败的责任 vs. 因失败抱怨他人

    Where there are ups, there are most always downs. Being a leader and successful businessperson means always having to accept responsibility for your failures. Blaming others solves nothing; it just puts other people down and absolutely no good comes from it.

    人生总是充满起起落落。作为一个领导者和一名成功的商业人士要勇于承担失败的责任。埋怨他人于事无补,只会让别人感到难堪,抱怨绝不会有任何好处。

    4. Talk about ideas vs. Talk about people

    谈论想法 vs. 谈论他人

    What did we all learn in high school? Gossip gets you nowhere. Instead of gossiping about people, successful people talk about ideas. Sharing ideas with others will only make them better.

    我们在高中都学会了什么?八卦不会给你带来任何好处。成功人士在一起会谈论自己的想法而不是八卦他人。彼此交换想法只会让他们变的更好。

    5. Set goals and life plans vs. Do not set goals

    确立目标和人生计划 vs. 没有目标

    You can't possibly be successful without knowing where you're going in life. A life vision board, 10 year plan, 3 year forecast, annual strategic plan, and daily goal lists are useful tools of the mega-successful people. Get your vision and goals down on paper!

    生活中,如果你不知道自己要往哪里前进,那么你也不会成功。人生规划,10年规划,3年预期,每年的策略性计划以及每天的目标列表对于成功人士都是很有用的工具。将自己的规划和目标写在纸上。

    6. Keep a journal vs. Say you keep a journal but don’t

    写日记 vs. 说自己要写日记但从来没写过

    Keeping a journal is a great way to jot down quick ideas or thoughts. Writing them down can lead to something even greater. You can even use mobile apps or your Notes function in your phone. But don’t fool yourself by saying you keep a journal and not following through.

    写日记是一个很好的方法来快速地记下自己的想法。记下这些想法会创造出更伟大的东西。你甚至可以使用手机的应用程序或者手机里的便签功能来写日记。但是不要欺骗自己,说要写日记但从来没有执行过。

    7. Read every day vs. Watch TV every day

    每天读书 vs. 每天看电视

    Reading every day educates you on new subjects. Whether you are reading a blog, your favorite magazine or a good book, you can learn and become more knowledgeable as you read. Watching television, on the other hand, may be good entertainment or an escape, but you'll rarely get anything out of TV to help you become more successful.

    每天的阅读可以让你接触不同的内容。不论是读一篇博客,自己最喜欢的杂志还是一本好书,你都会学到东西,变的更加博学。相反,看电视也许是很好的娱乐方式或者说是一种很好的逃避方式,但是要想成功,电视节目益处很少。

    8. Continuously learn vs. Fly by the seat of your pants

    不断学习 vs. 三分钟热度

    Continuously learning and improving is the only way to grow. You can be a step above your competition and become more flexible because you know more. If you just fly by the seat of your pants, you could be passing up opportunities that prevent you from learning (and growing!)

    不断的学习和进步是唯一的成长方式。因为知道更多,自己就可以在竞争中掌握先机,也会更加游刃有余。如果做事总是三分钟热度,你就会错失很多机会,妨碍自己的学习和进步。

    9. Forgive others vs. Hold a grudge

    原谅他人 vs. 不断抱怨

    Everybody makes mistakes; it’s human. The only way to get past the mistake is to forgive and move on. Dwelling on anger only makes things worse - for you.

    每个人都会犯错,这是不可避免的。唯一解决错误的方式就是原谅,然后继续前进。对自己而言,老是生气只会让事情变得更糟。

    10. Keep a "To-Be" list vs. Don’t know what you want to be

    拥有梦想 vs. 前路迷茫

    A "To-Be" list is a great way to strategize for the future. I want to be an elected official one day. I want to be a TED speaker. I want to be the CEO of a public company. I want to be a great father and husband. Unsuccessful people have no idea what they want to be. If you don’t know what you want to be, how can you achieve success? What do you want to be?

    一份“梦想”列表是很好的未来规划。终有一天,我要成为一名官员。我想要成为一名TED演讲者。我想要成为一家上市公司的CEO。我想要成为一个伟大的父亲和丈夫。平庸的人不知道他们想要成为什么。如果你都不知道自己想要成为什么,怎么会成功呢?你想要成为什么呢?

  • 需要记住的14句话

    2014-4-20

    Some days are simply worse than others. A day can turn especially bad when you just feel as if you’re "not good enough" for anyone or anything. In other words, just "not good enough". Here are a few things to remember when those feelings come around.

    有些日子就是比较难熬。而当你觉得自己“不太配得上”某人或某事时,这一天更是糟糕透顶。也就是说,你觉得自己“不够好”。那么,当这种情绪来袭时,就请记住下面这些话吧。

    \

    1. There Really Is More Right With You Than Is Wrong

    你身上对的总比错的多。

    Time for a little pep talk here. The truth of the matter is that while it may feel like it, you don’t screw up anymore than anyone else. Cut yourself some slack; you are as human as the rest of us and you need to remember that mistakes are part of life. Time to stop comparing yourself with others and live your best life.

    该讲些打气的话了。事实上,尽管有时觉得自己错得不行,但实际上你并没有比其他人搞得更砸。放自己一马吧;你也跟大家一样只是个普通人而已,请记住:错误也是生活的一部分。所以别再拿自己跟别人比较了,努力过好自己的生活吧。

    2. Accept The "Now" And Move On

    接受“现在”,继续前行。

    There is a certain power to accepting the circumstances and having the mind-set to carry on and move forward. Give yourself the gift of forgiving yourself from the mistake made, the stutter, or the stumble. Forgiveness begins at home and you really should accept the situation as a temporary one in order to move forward.

    6. Stay Positive And Move Forward

    保持积极,不断前进。

    This is indeed very difficult. It is so very easy to think only of the negative and stay down in the wicked rut. There really is power in positive thinking. Instead of the woulda-coulda-shoulda, think of the can do and will do. Positive thinking puts power in your mind to act instead of staying stuck mulling over the circumstance or the mistake made.

    这个真的很难。人们太容易只想着消极面然后一蹶不振了。积极思维真的充满了力量。与其不断假设如何如何,不如想想自己能做什么,然后采取行动。积极的想法让你充满能量,不再陷在已经发生的情况或错误之中。

    7. Try A Different Angle

    尝试不同的角度。

    Need that passing grade? Or perhaps this is something that simply has to be done and cannot be ignored or move forward from. Maybe it is a task that has to be done, but you feel it is demeaning or degrading. That’s ok. Sometimes changing the way you think of a difficult task may be enough.

We do see their achievements and successes. And unless we live with them, we tend to see others only when they are at their best. No one can be at their best all day, every day. They make mistakes for better or worse, the same as anyone else.

    不论优缺点如何,这世上只有一个你。其实,尽管我们很清楚自己的错误,却很少看到别人的——我们只看到他们的成就与成功。而且,除非住在一起,否则我们往往只会看到他们最好的一面。没有人可以一直处于最佳状态。每个人都会时不时地犯些错误。

    10. Learn To Appreciate What You Have

    学会珍惜已经拥有的。

    Certainly you have more than some and less than others. It may help to keep in mind that some people do not have as much as you, even if you only have a little. Get to know someone who has less than you, through volunteering or simply talking with others you may not normally talk too.

    11. The Truth Is, Life Really Isn’t Fair

    现实是——生活确实不公平。

    And such a cruel truth it is. People who don’t deserve a terminal illness get sick and die. Others have trouble follow them around like an unruly puppy. Unfortunately, there isn’t a whole lot you or anyone else can do about this reality. Get to know others and lean on them when possible. Talk with people who share the same burden to learn how to cope and to help you through life’s tasks.

    现实就是这么残酷。不该患绝症的人却病逝,还有些人麻烦总是如影随形。不幸的是,你或其他任何人对现实都无能为力。但你可以去了解他人,并在必要时依靠他们。和志同道合的人交流,进而学会如何应付生活中的问题。

    12. Some Things Are Not As They Appear

    有些事情并非看到的那样。

    Due to the fact that we are really voyeur’s in other people’s lives, we have no idea how they have accomplished one thing or another. For example, one person may have the required experience for a job, while another had the right connections. The fact is, we do not know and have no way of knowing how a person is maneuvering through his or her life.

    人们都很爱窥探别人的生活,但又压根儿不知道别人是怎样一次又一次取得成功的。举个例子,某人或许具备某份工作所要求的经验,但另一个人却拥有不错的人际关系。事实是,我们不知道、也没有办法知道别人是如何经营各自生活的。

    13. Change What You Can And Learn To Accept What Can’t Be Changed

    改变自己能够改变的,接受那些不能改变的。

    Take control of areas of your life when you can. A good place to start is how you problem-solve or think about a situation. You can control how a problem is approached and how you will deal with the problem. While nothing can change the past, there are steps you can take toward a brighter future. What are the goals you can begin today toward where you want to be?

    在力所能及范围内经营好自己的生活。如何解决问题或看待某个情形便是不错的开端。你可以控制问题的出现及其解决办法。虽然无法改变过去,但你可以采取行动创造一个更美好的未来。今天你可以开始怎样的目标,进而实现自己的渴求呢?

    14. Don’t Forget To Get Started

    不要忘记开始行动。

    It is very easy to simply stop forward momentum and dwell on all that has gone wrong. Make the commitment to change, whatever that change may be. Keep a journal as progress is made. In this way, you can physically see the progress being made. It is always a good thing to break the process into smaller steps while advancing toward a specific goal.

    人们很容易停止前进,一味陷在已经错发的一切。不论改变是什么,请努力做出改变吧。以日记的形式记录下进步。这样,你能清晰看到取得的进步。在实施具体目标时,最好把整个过程分成几个小阶段,这样比较有益。

    Loneliness Along Growth--成长的孤独(中英版)~摘自(英语广场美文之美丽英文)
        We're like the cream.When the cream rises to the top,it separates itself from the milk.Perhaps that is what the New Age Movement is really all about.We find ourselves lonely at the top.Yes,it is. 
     
       我们就像奶油。当奶油浮到顶部的时候,它会和牛奶分离。也许这种现象正是新时代运动的本质。我们发现自己飞得越高,就会越感到孤独。是的,事实就是如此。
       Often,we find ourselves unable to find those other rare individuals who are choosing the same path as ours.The path of sloppy and lazy is full of other people to meet and talk to.The path of whiners is full.The path of being safe,generic,and boring is so crowded you almost cannot even move forward.Isn't that why you left that path?You hae a need to move forward,a need to be seen as special,unique,different.The masses may admire you,but they are not going to be able to really relate to you.You will be alone much of the time.
        经常,我们很难找到那些选择和我们同路的人们。那天草率、慵懒的道路挤满了可以相遇并聊天的人。那条满是牢骚者的道路上也拥挤不堪。那条所谓安全、普通和枯燥的道路是如此拥挤以至于你无法向前挪步。难道这不正是你离开那天道路的原因吗?你需要向前挪步,需要活动的空间,需要伸展你的双臂,需要被认为是特别的,有个性,与众不同。或许有万千大众仰慕你,但他们却不可能真正地融入你。大部分的时间里,你将是孤独的。
        Do not be afraid of the loneliness of enlightenment.Do not force others to agree with you.Simply give up your heart and know that you are growing and that they are free to grow or not.It is the nature of the game.We are all free to choose our paths.
        不要害怕因造诣深而产生的孤独感。不必要勉强别人附和你。只需真心付出,坚定着你自己的成长,别人是否愿意成长就由他们自己去决定吧。这就是自然界的规则。我们都有选择自己道路的自由。

  • 失败时记得问自己的5个问题

    2013-9-03

     


    Let’s face it. We all fail.
    人人都有失败,不如坦然面对。

    As we go through life we have relationships that don’t work out, jobs that just aren’t right, exams that we flunk, initiatives that don’t succeed. The more new things we try the more failures we are likely to have. In fact, the only way to avoid failure is to do nothing new.
    这一生,我们总会遇到纠缠不清的人际关系、不甚满意的工作、未通过的考试,或者不曾实现的计划。尝试越多,挫折也越多。除非什么都不干,否则难免遭受打击。

    The important thing is how we deal with failure. It can be part of a downward slide in which lack of confidence reinforces feelings of inadequacy and incompetence. But experiencing failure can be a learning experience and an opportunity for a fresh start. A good way to begin this process is by asking yoruself some tough questions.
    关键是我们如何面对失败。人走下坡路,往往会自卑,感到无能为力。但失败也是吸取教训、重新开始的机会。要重新开始,最好认真思考下面几个问题。

    1. What can I learn from this? 
    我从失败中学到了什么?

    Take responsibility for what went wrong. OK, so it was not all your fault – but some of it was. Successful people don’t make excuses or blame others. They take ownership of the issues. Be critical but constructive. Try to look at the experience objectively. Make a list of the key things that happened. Analyze the list step-by-step and look for the learning points.
    为所犯的错承担责任。的确,失败并非完全你的错,但你也确实在责难逃吧。成功的人从来不为失败找借口或抱怨他人,而是坦然承担责任。所以,试着客观看待挫折,列出清单,一步一步认真总结才好。

    2. What could I have done differently? 
    如果重来一次会不会有不同的处理方式?

    What other options did you have? What choices did you make? How could you have handled it differently? With the benefit of hindsight, what different steps would you have taken?
    当初是否还有其他途径?可否换一种方式处理?后见之明或许能让你发现原来还有别的方法解决问题。

    3. Do I need to acquire or improve some skills?
    我的能力是否亟待提高?

    Did the problem reveal some lack of skill on your part? How could you learn or improve those skills? Perhaps there are books or courses or people you could turn to. Make a self-development plan to acquire the skills and experiences you need.
    挫折是否也代表你能力不足呢?该怎样弥补?或许,你可以读书、上课或向人请教。制定计划,努力提高自己的能力吧。


    4. Who can I learn from?
    我能向谁学习?

    Is there someone to whom you can turn to for advice? Did a boss, colleague or a friend see what happened? If they are constructive and supportive then ask them for some feedback and guidance. Most people do not ask for help because they believe it to be a sign of weakness rather than strength. It’s not. It shows that you are ready to learn and change. Any good friend will be happy to help.
    身边有没有可以求助的人?如果上司、同事或朋友能够理解,你可以多征求他们的意见。很多人都觉得求助意味着无能,真是大错特错。你开口求助,表示你渴望学习和改变,朋友当然会很乐意!

    5. What will I do next?
    接下来该怎么办?

    Now draw up an action plan. Will you try something similar or something different? Revisit your goals and objectives. This reversal has been a setback on your journey but think of it as a diversion rather than a halt. You can now reset your sights on your destination and plan a new course.
    制定行动方案。你想一如既往还是有所不同?好好审视自己的目标吧。失败并不意味着你要放弃,或许你只需换种方式而已。所以,你应重新审视目标,调整实施计划。

    If you read the life stories of successful people – especially inventors, explorers, scientists or statesmen – you will find that their early careers are littered with failures. Walt Disney, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford are typical examples. Abraham Lincoln, suffered many defeats in his career in politics including losing the nomination for vice president in 1856 and his second run at being a U.S. Senator in 1858. Two years later he was elected president.
    如果你常读成功人士的故事——尤其是那些发明家、探险家、科学家或政治家的,你会发现,很多人早年都处处碰壁。沃尔特·迪士尼、托马斯·爱迪生以及亨利·福特都是很好的例子。再比如亚伯拉罕·林肯,政治生涯屡屡受挫:1856年,错失副总统提名;1858年,参议员竞选再度落榜;直到两年后,他才成为美国总统。

    The important point is to use your setbacks as learning experiences and make them stepping stones to future success. There are always positives you can take from every episode in your life. Asking yourself these five questions can help find them.
    所以,你应该把失败看作吸取教训、走向成功的垫脚石。生命中的每段历程,都有积极乐观的一面。多问问自己这五个问题,或许你就能茅塞顿开 。
