The agricultural school dean was interviewing a freshman."Why have you chosen this career?"he asked.

农业学院的院长正在面试一个大一新生。“你为什么选择这个专业?”他问。

"I dream of making a million dollars in farming,like my father," replied the freshman. The dean was impressed. “Your father made a million dollars in farming?"

”我梦想从事农业取得百万美元,就像我父亲一样。“新生回答道。他的回答让校长印象深刻。”你的父亲在农业上赚到百万美元了吗?“

"No,"the student said."But he always dreamed of it."

”没有,但他一直憧憬着。“

That was a corny joke.But at least this student has a dream.

那是个老掉牙的笑话。但至少这个学生拥有一个梦想。

I prefer the story of a man who was discussing with his wife a trip he wanted to Alaska. He told her he'd always dreamed of such an adventure. He wanted to travel deep into the wilderness.He talked about how exciting it would be to stay in a log cabin without electricity, to hunt animals and drive a dog team instead of a car.

我更喜欢那个关于一个男人和他的妻子讨论他想去美国阿拉斯加州旅行的故事。他告诉妻子自己常梦到这样的一次冒险。他想去荒原深处游历。他谈论到呆在一个没有电力的小木屋中,去捕猎动物并驱赶狗队而不是开辆小车会是一件多么令人兴奋的事。

”If we decided to live there, away from civilization, what would you miss the most?"he asked his partner.

"如果决定住在那儿,远离文明,你最挂念的是什么?“他问着自己的伴侣、

She replied,"You."

她回答道,” 你。“

His dream;not hers. A better dream might include her.

这是他的梦,不是她的。一个更好的梦或许会包含她。

This is a time we often examine our dreams and goals. I've found a couple of questions helpful when I consider which dreams to chase and which to leave alone.

这是一个时段我们经常检测我们的梦想和目标。当我自己考虑哪些梦想该追求而哪些又该放弃时,我发现一一些提问很有帮助

First, does my dream have deep meaning? In other words, is it important enough to give my time and energy toward? What will it mean if I realize this thing I think I want?

首先,我的梦是否有深刻的意义?换句话说,它是否足够重要,值得我花费时间和精力去实现? 如果我实现自己认为想要的事,这意味着什么?

The second question is similar. Does my dream spring from the best that is within me?Does it come from a place of love?

第二个问题是相似的。我的梦想是否是从我最好的愿望中来的?它是否是来自有爱的地方?

Will my life and the lives of those I love be better for it? My best dreams include those I love. What are you dreaming about?

我和我爱的人的生活是否会因为它而变得更好?美的梦里有我所爱之人。你的梦想是什么呢?
