成功的道路不止一条,成功的标准也不止一个。在与他人的竞争中脱颖而出固然是成功,但有勇气不断超越自己、不断超越过去的人,为什么就无法跻身于成功者的行列呢?如果只知道被动地接受世俗化的成功标准,就只能在人云亦云的氛围中迷失自我。盲目地选择那些并不适合自己的成功之路,或是像这位高分考入重点大学的学生那样,为自己戴上沉重的精神枷锁。

There is not only one way to success and there is not only one standard to measure. Be outstanding among competition of course is a kind of success, but if some people who continued to surpass themselves and beyond their own past, why cannot them also be success? If you only passively accept the standard of measuring success, you will only know how to follow the herd and lose yourself. You will choose an unfitted way to success aimlessly, like the student enrolled in a key university with high score, constraint yourself with spiritual shackle.

 

其次,一个崇尚一元化成功的社会一定是不完整、不均衡的,社会中绝大多数成员都很难体会到真正的快乐和幸福。

Secondly, a society advocate unified success must be a society without integrity and balance. The majority in this society will feel hard to experience real happiness.

 

在一元化的视角下,如果仅以“成绩”和“名利”来衡量个人、团体乃至社会的成败,那么,这个社会上99%的人都无法跻身于成功者的行列。毕竟,在学校中考得高分的只能是少数人;在工作中晋升为领导或成为亿万富翁的也只能是少数人。这些人固然在自己的奋斗方向上取得了成功,但其他人都是失败者吗?例如,那些不善于死记硬背、却能在实践中一展身手的学生,那些缺少一些领导才华、却能在特定领域深入钻研的技术专家,还有那些不喜欢追名逐利、却能在知识的天地里自由驰骋的学者,我们能说他们都是失败者吗?

Under the unified mode of success, if we measure people, group or even the society is success or not only use ‘grades’ or ‘fame and wealth’, then, 99% people in this society will be unsuccessful. After all, there only minor students can get high score in school and minor people who can be a leader or become a billionaire developed from their job. These people of course are success, but others are all losers? For example, those who are not good at remembering but can be outstanding during practice, those who lack of the knowledge of managing people but can dig deep into a certain area and became an expertise and those who do not like to pursuit fame and money, but able to swim in the knowledge sea, can we call them all losers? 


to be continued..
