    某天晚上用 iPad 在 Zite 這個 app 上瀏覽自己的訂閱的主題文章,看到一篇文章,標題是 “101 Simple Truths We Often Forget“,看了幾條,發現滿受用的,而且平常就有寫一些短語在黑板上給學生當勵志小語來看的習慣,所以這裡轉過來,同時翻譯成中文。我想或許會有一些朋友會跟我一樣,喜歡看看這些人生智慧。而且農曆年才要到來,現在立新年志願也還不太晚。

    101 則有點多,而且裡頭有一些我自己未必認同的,所以去蕪存菁後變成33則。想連同我的翻譯一起轉錄的朋友,可以,但請附上這篇文章的連結。或者,您也可以直接轉錄英文原文也可以,也請附上英文原文連結喔。感謝配合 🙂

    1. The acquisition of knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing. Growing happens when what you know changes how you live. 獲得知識並不意味者成長。只有當我們把得到的知識用在去改變自己的人生,這才叫成長。

    2. Change is often resisted when it is needed the most. 最抗拒的改變往往也是最亟需的改變。

    3. Discipline is choosing what you want most over what you want right now. 所謂嚴以律己,就是選擇你最想要的,而非當下就想要的。(好比一個人一直想要存到100萬,但卻無法克制血拼的衝動與慾望)

    4. People seldom do things to the best of their ability. They do things to the best of their willingness. 很少有人盡全力做事;通常是看自己願不願意而已。(非不能也,實不為也)

    5. You can’t change other people; you can only offer guidance, and lead by example. 我們不可能改變其他人;我們只能提供導引,同時提供過往的案例讓他們自己做決定。 (師長父母教育孩子時的準則)

    6. Right now, there’s a lot you don’t know. And if you never challenge your own beliefs, the list will never shrink. 此時此刻,有太多我們不知道的世間事。如果我們不挑戰自己的信仰,不知道的事只會越來越多。

    7. If you’re talking to someone you don’t know well, you may be talking to someone who knows way more about the topic of conversation than you do. 當我們跟不熟的人聊天時,在聊的話題,對方很有可能知道的比我們多太多。

    8. The most common and harmful addiction in the world is the draw of comfort. 最常見但也是最害人不淺的癮頭是安逸。

    9. Growth begins at the end of your comfort zone. Stepping outside of your comfort zone will put things into perspective from an angle you can’t grasp now. 成長始於離開自己的舒適圈。踏出舒適圈會讓我們以一個全然未曾體驗過的新角度去體驗事物。 (這就是我之所以認為獨自旅行是人生之必要的原因)

    10. Most of the bad things you worry about will never happen. Most of the bad things that do happen will have never have crossed your worried mind. 大多數你擔心的壞事從來不會發生。大多數的壞事反而是那些你從來不曾想到的事。

    11. Some circumstances are uncontrollable, but we can always decide how we react to those circumstances. 有些情況的確無法控制,但是我們可以控制我們如何應對對這些狀況。(90-10 準則)

    12. Those who complain the most, accomplish the least. 抱怨最多,成就最少。

    13. Whenever somebody discredits you, and tells you that you can’t do something, keep in mind that they are speaking from within the boundaries of their own limitations. 當有人看輕你,告訴你不可能成功時,要提醒自己,這些人只是從他們自己能力的極限來預測你的不可能。

    14. Every problem you have in your life right now is your responsibility, regardless of who initially caused it. 此刻我們生命中所有遭遇的難題,不管是誰造成的,都該是我們自己的責任。

    15. Being busy and being productive are two different things. 窮忙與有生產力是兩回事。

    16. The bad news: nothing is permanent. The good news: nothing is permanent. 壞消息是,沒有什麼事永恆不變的,而這同時也是好消息。

    17. Problems, when they arise, are rarely as painful and hurtful as the process of fearing them. 問題產生時,沒有什麼比害怕處理問題更痛苦。

    18. Confusion isn’t a bad thing. It means you’re growing and thinking. 困惑不是壞事,這意味著我們在成長、在思考。

    19. Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. 能做,但不代表應該做。(這也是另一種「非不能也,實不為也」)

    20. In the beginning, you need to say “yes” to a lot of things to discover and establish your goals. Later on, you need to say “no” to a lot of things and concentrate on your goals. 一開始時,我們必須對很多事情說Yes,這樣才能發掘並且確立目標。接下來我們就必須對很多事情說No,這樣才能專心致志於我們的目標。

    21. Even if it doesn’t cost any money, it’s not free if it takes up your time. 即便不用花錢,只要會花時間就不是免費的了。(時間成本的重要)

    22. Screaming at people always makes things worse. 對人吼叫只會讓事情更糟。(>, <)

    23. When you’re up, your friends know who you are. When you’re down, you know who your friends are. 當你發達時,朋友都知道你是何許人物;而當你失敗時,可以很輕易看清你的朋友是怎樣的人。

    24. If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot. 真正希望有我們在人生中相伴的人,一定會挪出空間給我們的。我們沒有必要去極力爭取。

    25. We rarely lose friends, we usually just figure out who our real ones are. 我們鮮少失去朋友。我們只是弄清楚什麼是真正的朋友。

    26. Good looks attracts the eyes. Personality attracts the heart. 好看的外表吸引目光,可敬的人格吸引心腸。

    27. If you aren’t happy being single, you won’t be happy in a relationship. You have to create your own life first before you can share it with someone else. 如果單身時不快樂,戀愛時也不會快樂的。一定要有自己獨特的生活方式,才能與另一半分享。

    28. Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. 生命何其短,不該花時間在那些取走你幸福的人身上。

    29. Giving up doesn’t always mean you’re weak, sometimes it means you are strong enough and smart enough to let go. 放棄不意味著你是弱者,有時代表你得夠堅強,夠聰明才知道放棄。

    30. Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things clearly. 有時得站遠一點才能看清事物的真面貌。

    31. You can’t make the same exact mistake twice. The second time you make it, it’s no longer a mistake, it’s a choice. 我們不會同一個錯誤犯第二次,因為第二次再犯時,就不是個錯誤了;那是選擇。

    32. Not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck. 得不到時,未嘗不是種幸運。

    33. Blowing out another’s candle will not make yours shine brighter. 吹熄別人的蠟燭並不會讓自己的生命之燭更耀眼。
