4.   There is no such thing as failure—only learning opportunities

这不是失败——这只是个学习的机会。

You should just wipe the word “failure” right out of your vocabulary. All great people who have ever achieved anything have “failed” over and over. In fact, I think it was Thomas Edison who said something like, “I did not fail at inventing the light bulb, I just first found 99 ways that it didn’t work.” Take your so-called “failures” and learn something from them. Learn how to do it better next time.

你需要彻底地把“失败”这个词从你字典里面抹去。很多伟大的人们完成事情的时候都会反复经过很多次的失败。实际上,我认同爱迪生所说的“我从来没有在发明灯泡的过程中失败过,我只是找到了99种不可行的办法而已。”把你所谓的“失败”当做学习的机会,下次学习如何把它做得完美。

 

 

5   If you don’t get something you want, it just means something better is coming

如果你没有东西想要的,那么意味着你能拥有更好的。


That’s hard to believe sometimes, I know. But it’s true. Usually, when you look back at your life, you will be able to see why it was actually a good thing that something didn’t work out. Maybe the job you didn’t get would have made you spend more time away from your family, but the job you did get was more flexible. Just have faith that everything happens exactly the way it’s supposed to.

我知道有时候很难去相信某些东西。但是它是真的。通常,当你回首你的生活的时候,你将会看到因为之前的事情没有成功才能有后面的好事。也许你没有做的那个工作会耗尽你所有的精力没时间陪家里人,而后来这个工作可以使你有更多的灵活性(时间)。只要相信每件事情都有它发生的必然。


6.Appreciate the present moment

珍惜你目前的时光。(珍惜当下)

This moment will never come again. And there is always something precious about every moment. So don’t let it pass you by! Soon it will just be a memory. Even moments that don’t seem happy can be looked upon as something that you might miss someday. As the country song by Trace Adkins says, “You’re gonna miss this…you’re gonna want this back. You’re gonna wish these days hadn’t gone by so fast….you may not know this now, but you’re gonna miss this…”

时间一去不复返。每件事情都有它珍贵的地方。所以,别轻易浪费!不久就会变成回忆了。每个时候看起来不开心的日子你可能在以后的某天你就会怀念起来了。就像Trace Adkin在乡村歌曲里唱的那般:“你会去怀念,会想重头再来。你会希望这些日子没有过得太快,也许现在你不知道,但你真的会去想念。”
