 Most importantly, make friends and be happy. College friends are often the best in life, because during college you are closer to them physically than to your family. Also, going through independence and adulthood is a natural bonding experience. Pick a few friends and become really close to them – pick the ones who are genuine and sincere to you. Don't worry about their hobbies, grades, looks, or even personalities. You have developed some real friendships in high school in your last two years, so trust your instinct, and make new friends. You are a genuine and sincere person – anyone would enjoy being your friend, so be confident, outgoing, and pro-active. If you think you like someone, tell her. You have very little to lose. Give people the benefit of the doubt; don't stereotype and be forgiving. People are not perfect, so as long as they are genuine and sincere, trust them and be good to them. They will give back. This is my secret of success – that I am genuine with people and trust them (unless they do something to lose my trust). Some people tell me that occasionally I would be taken advantage of. They are right, but I can tell you that that loss is nothing compared to what I gained. In my last 18 years leading people, I have realized that only one thing matters – to gain the trust and respect of others, and to do so, you need to trust and respect others first. Whether it is for management, work, or friendship, this is something you should ponder.

最重要的是,结交朋友以及保持愉悦的心情。大学朋友通常是你生命中最好的朋友,因为在大学里,你能和她们近距离交往。你们还会一起学会独立,一起长大,这种源于人类本性的经历会将你们牢牢地联系在一起。选择那些真诚诚恳的朋友,亲近她们。不要介意她们的个人爱好、成绩、样貌,甚至是性格。在过去的两年里,你已经在高中认识了一些真正的朋友,所以相信你的直觉,勇敢地去结交新朋友。你那么真诚诚恳,每个人都会很乐意成为你的朋友,所以你要保持自信、开朗和积极主动。如果你认为你对某个女孩有好感,那就告诉她。就算被拒绝了,你也没什么损失。给人们不确定的好处,不要固守己见,待人宽容。因为世上没有完美的人,所以只要她们真诚诚恳,你就应该选择相信她们,友好地对待她们。她们也会给予你同样的回报。这是我成功的秘诀——我真诚待人,相信他人(除非他们做了一些不好的事以致于失去了我的信任)。有些人劝告我如果我这样做偶尔也会被人利用。他们说得不错,但是我可以告诉你的是,我的所得远远大于所失。在过去18年的领导生涯中,我明白了只有一件事是最重要的——取得别人的信任和尊重。而为了达到这个目的,你首先必须相信和尊重其他人。无论是管理,工作还是友情,这一点都是需要你去深思的问题。
