                         Dare to Dream Again!
                           勇敢地再次梦想!

    很多人都有一个梦想,甚至很多个梦想。在梦想面前,很多人浅尝辄止,只有少数人能“咬定梦想不放松”。而这些少数人,就是被大家称为成功者的人。在失败面前,让我们勇敢地再次梦想!

    参加我们疯狂英语集训营的同学们都能脱口而出这篇文章!请记住:要想真正攻克英语,这辈子就必须彻底背诵一篇文章!

 

   [1] Successful people always have a dream. They dream big dreams and then display great courage to do things that others say cannot be done.

   [2] Your dreams form the foundation of success. Many people have long forgotten the dreams they used to have when they were kids. As they grow older, they are simply too caught up with their work activities that they fail to discover what they really want to pursue in life. They find themselves trapped in a routine work system that can potentially1 rob them of their dreams.

   [3] To get you back on track to pursue your dreams, follow these steps:

   [4] Learn to dream again: We are born to dream. Children often share their dreams and what they want to be when they grow up. But we hear of teachers yelling in school: “Stop dreaming and pay attention in class!” Parents, too, have shrieked: “Stop dreaming and get on with your homework!”

   [5] Learning and growing up in such an environment, one may regard dreaming as an unproductive act. As children grow up, they are told to forget their dreams and be practical because they are living in a “real” world. In the end, many do get “realistic” and give up their dreams eventually.

   [6] Dream big dreams: Never set mental boundaries on what you are capable of achieving. Dreams are free anyway, so as long as you are dreaming, you might as well dream big. Many people cannot realize their dreams and achieve greater success because they limit their own beliefs.

   [7] Flee from2 dream killers: Dream killers are devastating to your success. Your friends, colleagues, and even loved ones can be one of your dream killers. There are people who will try to distract, confuse, or persuade you to build the life they want, not the life that you want.

   [8] Stop listening to the people who tell you why you will not achieve your dreams. You just need to believe you can do whatever it is you want to do. Other people can only discourage us temporarily3, but you are the only one who can prevent yourself from being discouraged permanently4.

   [9] Stop giving excuses: Kids talk frequently about what they can do, whereas many adults do the opposite. Adults tend to talk about what they cannot do and why.

   [10] You should stop giving reasons why you cannot achieve your dreams. Many so-called reasons are merely excuses. If you continue giving excuses for not achieving, it will not take long before you convince yourself that you really cannot accomplish what you originally set out to achieve.

   [11] As Henry Ford wisely put it: “Whether you think you can or cannot, you’re absolutely right.”

   [12] Take action5 immediately: Once you have big and clear dreams, take immediate action to work towards making them come true. Very often, if people do not translate their intention into action soon, their passion will begin to diminish6.

   [13] Weeks later, the passion will grow cold and months later, that passion may be gone forever. Think about this: Five birds are resting on the fence and minutes later, three birds decide to fly off to search for food. How many birds are left on the fence?

   [14] Two? Wrong! There should still be five birds on the fence because deciding to fly off is not the same as the actual act of flying off. The birds would not be able to find food until they start to take action and fly out of their comfort zone.

 

   [1] 成功人士通常都有一个梦。他们抱有很大的梦想,然后凭借巨大的勇气去完成那些其他人认为无法完成的事情。

   [2] 你的梦想构建了成功的基石。许多人早已忘记他们儿时的梦想。当他们长大成人后,又只是整天忙于工作而没能发现他们在生活中真正想追求的东西。他们发现自己陷于日常事务中,而这很有可能会掠走他们的梦想。

   [3] 要回到追求梦想的道路,请遵循以下步骤:

   [4] 学会再次做梦:我们天生就会做梦。孩子经常与人分享他们的梦想以及他们对长大后想做些什么的憧憬。然而,我们经常听到学校老师的训斥:“别做梦了,注意听讲!”家长们也常常呵斥我们,叫喊着:“别做梦了,快点做功课!”

   [5] 在这样的环境中学习和成长,人们会把做梦当作一种徒劳无益的行为。随着孩子们的成长,他们被灌输的是忘记梦想,实际一些,因为他们生活在一个“现实的”世界里。结果是许多人确实变得“现实”了,最终放弃了他们的梦。

   [6] 敢于做伟大的梦:永远不要给自己有能力做到的事情设定心理界限。既然梦想是免费的,既然你已在做梦,为什么不放飞你的梦想呢?许多人不能实现自己的梦想,取得更大的成功,就是因为他们束缚了自己的信念。

   [7] 摆脱梦想杀手:梦想杀手是你走向成功的死敌。你的朋友、同事甚至你所爱的人都可能成为你的梦想杀手。有些人将试图让你分心,扰乱你的心绪或是劝说你去过他们想要的而不是你想要的生活。

   [8] 不要听信那些用各种理由阻拦你,说你无法实现自己梦想的人。你只需要相信自己能做到任何想做的事。其他人只能暂时让我们灰心,而能够永远激励你的人只有你自己。

   [9] 不再给自己找借口:孩子常常说他们能做什么,而许多成年人正好相反。成年人总是感叹他们做不了什么,并编出各种理由。不能做什么及其理由。

   [10] 你应该停止为自己无法实现梦想而找理由。许多所谓的理由仅仅是借口。如果你继续为失败找借口的话,你很快就会使自己确信你真的无法达到你最初设定的目标。

   [11] 如亨利·福特的至理名言:“无论你认为自己行,还是不行,你都绝对是正确的。”

   [12] 立即采取行动:一旦你有了伟大并且明确的梦想,马上采取行动去把它们变为现实。大多数情况下,如果人们没有及时将计划付诸行动的话,他们的热情就会开始减弱。

   [13] 几周后,热情就会冷却;数月后,也许就会永远消失。请思考这个问题:五只鸟在篱笆上休息,几分钟后,三只决定飞走去寻找食物。篱笆上还剩几只鸟呢?

   [14] 两只?错误!篱笆上应该还有五只鸟,因为决定飞走并不等于有飞走的实际行动。只有当它们真正采取行动并且飞出他们的安乐窝,它们才能找到食物。
