译者csq3011

Desire is the bread and butter of success. If you don’t desire your goals enough, you won’t be able to muster the motivation to go after them, the courage to put yourself out there and you will not be able to tap into the enormous potential your desperation will let you access.

欲望是成功之母。如果你成功的欲望不强,就没法有足够的动力去实现它。你的勇气无处释放,那种不顾一切为了达到成功彼岸而激发的巨大潜力也消失殆尽。

Everyone has dreams and goals in their lives. But most don’t believe that it is possible possible or don’t want them enough to care. To succeed you need to harness you dreams into an obsession, a burning desire that allows you to push yourself further then you every could without.

每个人在自己的人生中都有梦想和目标。但是大多数人觉得这不大可能实现或不怎么重视。要成功,你要鞭策自己让梦想成为一种你不能缺少的魔力,一种燃烧的欲望,把你推向成功的境地。

The Most Successful People in the World

世界上最成功的人

If you look at the successful people in our community the only thing they have in common is that they wanted something and they went and got it.

如果你瞧瞧我们社区里那些成功人士,他们的共同点是:他们想要得到什么,一定是去争取过并最后梦想成真。

We have people with lots of education, no education, rich backgrounds, poor families, different ethnic backgrounds, some who were popular growing up, others who were outsiders.

我们这里有受过高等教育的人,有文盲,有家境不错的人,有来自贫困家庭的人,还有一些不同种族的人。一些人是含着金钥匙长大的,而另一些做梦都不可能和他们一样。

The only thing all these people have in common is their desire, they all have a burning desire to succeed.

这些人唯一的共同点是:欲望——如火焰一般熊熊燃烧着的渴望成功的欲望。

Chris Gardner

克里斯加纳

If you have seen the movie “The Pursuit of Happiness” about Chris Gardner’s life you will have seen how a dream can change a life.

如果你看过关于描写克里斯加纳人生的电影—–《当幸福来敲门》,你会发现梦想是如何强大到足以改变生活的。

He was a black man from a small town with very little education. One day he makes the decision to change his life. He is going to be a stock broker and he stakes his entire future on that goal.

他是一个来自小镇上没什么文化的黑人。一天,他决定要改变自己的生活。他打算成为一名股票经纪人,并且把一生的都赌在上面。

He tells his son “If you want something, go get it. Period.”

他告诉他的儿子:如果你想得到一件东西,去争取吧。

That is the same philosophy we all have to adopt if we are to succeed.

如若我们想取得成功,道理亦是如此。

No one is going to make it easy

万事开头难。

We have all hit hard times, it is the will to succeed that can turn it around and make your dreams reality.

我们都有过艰难时刻,这是成功的动力,最终让梦想照进现实的原因。

When I was new in sales I had become one of the top salesmen at my company.

当我还是只是个刚来的销售员时,我成了公司里业务最拔尖的一个。

I worked hard every day and dreamed about getting a managerial position.

我每天都努力工作,期望有一天坐上管理层的位置。

After 18 months of toil a spot opened up. I considered myself an obvious choice for the role so I applied, and get the answer, “You are too valuable a salesman, we cannot loose your sales figures. Sorry.”

在经过18个月之后的磨练后,一个职位公开竞选了。我觉得自己适合这个职位所以申请了,可是得到的结果是,“你太适合做销售了,公司少了你业务量一定下滑,很抱歉!”

This put me down and it took a long time for me to get my motivation back. At last I realized that it was up to me if I was going to get a managerial position.

我失望之极,花了很长一段实践才重新恢复动力。最后我想要不要申请一个管理层职位还是我说了算的。

I started working hard again. Harder then ever before. I started asking for more responsibility, for opportunities to lead and prove that I could handle the role.

我又开始努力工作了,而且比以前更努力。我希望承担更多的职责,得到更多领导的机会以此来证明我就是领导这块料。

Within 5 months the company created a new managerial position for me. The only reason I got the position was because I wanted it so badly.

5个月之内,我得到了一个管理层的位置。唯一的解释是:我死都想得到这个位置。

Conclusion

结论

Anything you want and anything you dream about can be yours, if you want it. All it takes is a desire so strong that it almost becomes an obsession combined with a focused effort on that goal until it becomes a reality.

只要你想,任何东西,梦想中的东西都会属于你的。只要你的欲望足够强大,强大到不达目的誓不罢休的境界,一切都会成真的。

Sooner or later your goal will become truth and you will have what you have dreamed about.

总有一天,你会达成所愿的。
