HAPPY AT WORK工作快乐着

 美文欣赏

I was surrounded by miserable people so I told them, “I quit.”

— HOSPITAL WARD SECRETARY

 

ONE DAY I THANKED A MEDICAL SECRETARY at the hospital for her wonderful attitude and asked her for her full name because I wanted to give her a pin with her name on it as a gift. She said, “Sit down.” I did, and she went on, “When I took this job I was surrounded by miserable people — the doctors and nurses. The patients weren’t a problem. I went to the office to quit, but they told me I had to give two weeks’ notice. I got up miserable every day for two weeks. When it was my last day I got up happy and went to work happy. I noticed something; all the people around me were happy. So I didn’t quit. I decided to come in happy instead.”

The kind of choice she made can work for all of us. You are in charge of your life and your attitude. Change one or the other according to your needs and desires, and you too can be happy. If you don’t want to be happy you can make that choice too. No one can force you to be happy if you would rather whine and complain.

I love what Tom Hanks said in A League of Their Own: “There’s no crying in baseball.” As you play the game of life, remember that it’s your attitude and choices that determine the outcome.

 

 

我周围的人都是一副苦瓜脸,所以我告诉他们:“我要辞职不干了。”

                             ——医务室秘书

 

一天,我对医院的一位医务秘书表示感谢之情,因为她的良好的态度。我询问了她的全名,因为我想送给她一枚饰针作为酬谢之礼,并在饰针上刻上她的姓名。她说:“请坐。” 我坐下来。她继续说道:“当我刚开始这份工作的时候,我周围的人都是一副苦瓜脸——那些医生还有护士。我对病人倒不怎么在意。因此,我到办公室要辞职,但是他们说辞职之前两周必须事先通知有关部门。接下来的两周里,我每天一起床就是一副苦瓜脸。到了最后一天,我终于可以开开心心起床又开开心心上班去了。但是,我发觉有些事情发生了改变:我身边的人一个个都很开心的样子。因此,我决定不辞职了, 决心每天都开心地去上班。”

    她的这种选择其实对于我们每个人都是适用的。你应该掌控自己的生活和自己的态度。根据自己的需求和愿望做出某种改变,你也会变得同样开心。如果你不想开心的话,你当然也可以做出自己的选择。如果你宁愿自己整天牢骚满腹的话,没人能够强迫使你开心。

我喜欢汤姆汉克斯在电影《红粉本垒打》中所说的话:“棒球比赛不相信眼泪。”在人生这场比赛中,请记住, 是你自己的态度和选择决定了比赛的结果。

 

 

If you are in a difficult environment or situation, try changing the attitude you bring to it. If that doesn’t work, perhaps it is time to move on.

当你身处困境时,试着改变自己的态度。如果这样还不奏效的话,也许是放手继续前行的时候了。
