成功与失败似乎是我们生活中必不可少的经历,我们该如何看待两者的关系?如何在困境中保持正确的生活态度?

 

The Greatest Hitter

世界上最棒的棒球手

A little boy was overheard talking to himself as he strutted through the backard, wearing his baseball cap and toting a ball and bat. “I’m the greatest hitter in the world,” he announced. Them, he tossed the ball into the air, swung at it, and missed.

“Strike One!” he yelled. Undaunted, he picked up the ball and said again, “I’m the greatest hitter in the world!”

He tossed the ball into the air. When it came down he swung again and missed. “Strike Two!” he cried out.

The boy then paused a moment to examine his bat and ball carefully. He spit on  his hands and rubbed them together. He straightened his cap and said once more, “ I’m the greatest hitter in the world!” Again he tossed the ball up in the air and swung at it. He missed. “Strike Three!”

“Wow!” he exclaimed… “I’m the greatest in the world!”

Your attitude determines how circumstances impact your life. The little boy’s circumstances hadn’t changed, but his optimistic attitude prompted him to give and encouraging meaning to what had happened.

What difficult time are you going through right now? can you do something to change it? If you can, don’t wait another day… make the needed changes. If you can’t change the circumstance, however, change your attitude… you’ll discover that circumstances won’t have the last word.

The world is so constructed that if you wish to enjoy its pleasures, you must also endure its pains. Like it or not, you can not have one without the other.

Success is not measured by what you accomplish. It’s measured by the opposition you encounter and the courage with which you maintain your struggle against the odds.

You’ll find all things are difficult before they are easy. The greater your obstacles, the more glory in overcoming them. So, make up you mind before you start that sacrifice is part of the package.

You’ve got to go through the negative before you get to the positive. The highway to success is a toll road.

 

一个小男孩带着棒球和球棒,边朝着后院大踏步走去边自言自语地说:“我是世界上最棒的击球手!”男孩把球扔到空中、挥动球棒,但却没打中。

“第一击!”他喊道。非常勇敢的把球捡起来,又说一遍:“我是世界上最棒的击球手!”

他又一次把球抛向空中,又一次挥动球棒但又一次没打中。“第二击!”男孩大声地喊着。

小男孩停了一下,认真地检查一下自己的球棒和球。往手掌上吐口吐沫,双手搓了几下。他带好帽子再次说道:“我是世界上最棒的击球手!”他把球再次抛到空中、挥棒,但还是没打中。“第三击!”他大喊。

“哇噻!”小男孩感叹说:“我是世界上最棒的击球手!”

你的态度将决定周围的环境对你的影响,小男孩所处的环境没有改变,但是他的积极态度赋予环境积极的意义。

你现在正在经历什么样的困难情形?能不能做点什么来改变一下?可以的话,就不要再等待,做些有必要的改变。即使无法改变环境,那就改变自己的态度。你会发现环境不是决定因素。

世界的构成就是这样,如果希望享受快乐,就要忍受痛苦。不论喜欢与否,这两种经历是结伴而行的。

对于成功的衡量不是看你取得了多少成绩,而是看你克服了多少困难,以及在逆境中表现出来的顽强拼搏的勇气。

你会发现一切事物都是由难而易,障碍越大,成功的意义就越大。在上路前做好牺牲的准备。

只有克服了消极的因素,才会感受到积极的因素。成功之路是要缴纳路费的。
