补作业……把以前的翻译课作业拿出来了好羞耻



你的财富是你自己——给孩子们的一封信

Your wealth is yourself- A letter to the kids

 

孩子,你现在就想拥有很多的钱。这不是坏事,因为只要有一些你想要的东西,那么你就有前进的动力,也有了前进的目标。有的人想要去很远的地方,有的人想长得很漂亮,有的人希望自己成为大明星,他们和你一样,有想法的人都是有意思的人。但是你到自己长到很大的时候,一直能保持这样的能力,就是回答自己想要的是啥,尽管以后你想要的东西和今天想要的东西不一样。

Kid, you want plenty of money now. It is not a bad thing; for as long as you want something, you have the motivation to move on, and a goal to make progress. Some people want to go to somewhere faraway, some people want to be good-looking, and some people want to be big stars; they are the same as you- whoever has own thoughts is interesting. But you always have to maintain this ability when you grow up; that is, to answer what you want. Although the thing you want then is different from what you want now.

 

但是我还要告诉你五件事情:第一件是你想吃苹果,你还要种苹果树,要种苹果树就还得有苹果籽,还得有土地、肥料、浇水与阳光。有人赚钱是因为发明了很棒的水稻,像袁隆平;有人赚钱是因为设计了很新的模式,比如像携程的四个创业者;有人赚钱是因为选对了要投的公司,像巴菲特。好了,你将来靠啥挣钱呢?是特别的眼光?是特别的见识?是因为相信勤奋总能做出点啥?还是擅长社交而找到好的人脉帮助?也就是说,你要从钱这儿向回找,看看最后你要在哪件事情上开始为你的未来挣钱,开始做基础的工作:选种、培土和考虑适当的作业技能。记住:不种苹果树是没有苹果吃的。

But I’m still going to tell you five things: the first one is that, if you want to eat the apple, you need to plant the apple tree. To plant the tree, you have to provide the soil, fertilizer, water, and sunshine. Some people can earn money because they invented brilliant paddy rice, for example Longping Yuan; some people can earn money because they designed brand new patterns, for example the 4 founder of Ctrip.com; some people can earn money because they chose the right company to invest in, for example Buffett. Alright, so what can you rely on to earn money in the future? Is it a special vision? Is it your special knowledge? Because you believe that there must be some repayment for your diligence? Or because you have a good sociality and you can seek help from your good connections? In other words, you need to think back from money, to find out where you can start to make money for your future, and begin to do the basic work: select the seed, earth up and consider the proper skills for the task. Keep this in mind: if you don’t plant the apple tree, you can never eat the apple.
