Let yourself go!尽情生活

Several years ago I received a post card from a friend in Jackson Hole, Wyo., who wrote, " I am skiing with abandon!" I wondered what he meant, for when I ski it is always with trepidation. I believe he meant he was skiing skillfully, joyfully, peacefully and confidently. Although I have no hopes of ever skiing that way, I do dream of living with abandon. I believe that people through the ages who have led successful lives have captured these five secrets of living life to the fullest.

几年前,我接到朋友Wyo.的明信片,他写道:“我在尽情滑雪!”我纳闷他说的是什么意思呢?因为我滑雪总是战战兢兢。我想他的意思是他能流畅地、高兴地、自信地滑雪了。尽管我从来不奢望能那么娴熟的滑雪,但我真的梦想能尽情地生活。我想,无论是谁,凡是生活的比较成功的都会体会到尽情生活的五个秘密。

1. Have a self you respect. This means having a deep sense of responsibility for your thoughts and actions. It means keeping your word, and being faithful to self, family and work. It means believing in what you do and working hard. It means setting your own internal standards, and not comparing yourself to others. It's not a question of being better than someone else; respect and integrity demand that you be better than you thought you could be.

1.要尊重自我。就是说对自己的言行要负责。坚守诺言,并且对自己、对家庭、对工作要忠诚。要坚信自己所做的并且努力去做。自己要设定标准,不要拿自己和别人比较。问题不在于你做的一定比别人好;自尊和诚实要求你做到比你自己想象的好。

Winston Churchill exemplified integrity an respect in the face of opposition. During his last year in office, he attended an official ceremony. Several rows behind him two gentlemen began whispering. "That's Winston Churchill." "They say he is getting senile." "They say he should step aside and leave the running of the nation to more dynamic and capable men." When the ceremony was over, Churchill turned to the men and said, "Gentlemen, they also say he is deaf!"

丘吉尔给了我们一个如何在反对方脸上用诚实获得尊重的例证。在他退休的前一年,他参加了一个官方典礼,坐在他后面几排位置上的两位先生小声说:“那是丘吉尔,别人都说他老了,应该靠边,让更有活力和能力的年轻人来治理国家。”典礼结束了,丘吉尔转向那两个先生说:“先生,他们还说他是个聋子。”

Churchill knew that one secret to a self you can respect is to choose a course of action based on what is right, not expedient, and not waver from it when criticized.

丘吉尔知道保持自尊的一个秘密是你选择行动的方式必须基于正确的事情,而不是在别人批评你时选择权宜之计或在问题上摇摆不定。

2.Commit yourself to others. Believe in others, and take time to nurture their dreams. A wise man said, "If you want one year's prosperity, grow grain. But if you want ten years' prosperity, grow men and women."

2.要对他人负责。要相信他人,并且花时间去支持、培育别人的梦想。一个哲人说过,“如果你要获得一年的丰收,就去种植谷物。但你要获得十年的丰收,就去培育人。”

You can build into the lives of your family, friends and colleagues by providing nutrients of gratitude and encouragement, and by investing your time and energy in their aspirations. If a tree is given minimal nourishment, it will live, but it will not grow. But if nourishment is given over and beyond what is needed for life, the tree will live and grow upward, producing fruit.

你要通过提供感激、鼓励等这些有营养的东西来成为你家庭、朋友和同事生活中的一部分,并且投入时间和能量在他们的抱负中。给树提供少的营养它可以存活,但不会成长。但你若给它提供足够的养分他就长得很高,并且生产果实。

3.Turn disappointments into strengths. Individuals who live with abandon have discovered that personal trials make them more sensitive and loving, while building endurance and character. They have learned that achievements worth remembering are stained with the blood of diligence and etched with the scars of disappointment.

The pages of history are filled with the heroic stories of undaunted men and women who triumphed over disabilities and adversities to demonstrate victorious spirits. Raise him in abject poverty, and you have an Abraham Lincoln. Make her blind and deaf, and you have a Helen Keller.

3.把挫折变成动力。那些生活得潇洒的人发现个人的一些考验使他们变得更敏感和充满爱心,进而培养忍耐力和个性品质。他们还体会到那些值得记住的所谓成就都来自于勤劳的血汗和打着失望的烙印。历史的篇章都充满那些无畏的人们英雄的故事,他们克服伤残和不幸展示勇于胜利的精神。

4.Enjoy life's process, not just life's rewards. We live in a goal-oriented society that wants problems resolved now. We want three-minute oatmeal, one-hour dry cleaning, and instant success. But to live with abandon, we must live one day at a time, savoring the little victories, realizing that life is an endless journey in self-discovery and personal fullfillment. It means taking time to hug your kids, kiss your spouse and let the other fellow ahead of you on the freeway.

享受生命的过程,而不仅仅是生命的奖赏。我们生活在一个目标导向型的社会,希望所有问题都能马上得到解决。我们想三分钟吃完饭,一个小时完成干洗,马上获得成功。但想活得潇洒、尽情,我们必须一天一天生活,享受一点一点的成功,要意识到生活就是一个不断自我发现和自我完善的无止境的旅程。这意味着你要有时间拥抱孩子,亲吻爱人,并且让那些走在你前边的人走得更快。

5.Become involved in something bigger than yourself. I do not believe you will live happily if you set out to live life for yourself alone. Choose a cause bigger than you are and work at it in a spirit of excellence. It will become a part of you as you see your goals through to the end. Measure success not by what you've done, but what you could do.

5.要把自己放到比你自己更大的事物中去。我不相信你仅仅为自己活着会活得很幸福。选择一项大于你自身的事业并且以一种卓越的精神为之努力。当你成功时你会发现它会成为你的一部分。成功不是用你已经做了什么来测量,而是用你能做什么来测量。

 

  昨天和老板讨论实验时突然听到老板他老人家说道:明年继续做! 搞得我一晚上都没睡好,所以很早就来到实验室,在博客闲逛,看到一位朋友的文章,很不错就拿来也是给自己加油,给自己静心!
