成功之路(The Path to Success)
People often want something for nothing. They want to work for a year, and be rich for a lifetime, diet for a month, and be skinny for years, work hard for a season, and become CEO. But real change…requires a life style change!
人总想不劳而获。他们想工作一年,余生富庶;节食一月,苗条数载;努力一季,升为CEO。但是真正的变化需要生活方式的改变。
Tell me how you spend your time and I will predict your future, because the secret of your future lies hidden in your daily routine.
我能预测你的未来,若你告知我你怎样使用你的时间。皆因未来之谜暗藏于你的日常生活中。
There are no short-cuts! You can’t cheat the system. In fact, the more you try to cheat the system, the farther away from your goals you get. There are no back roads to success; everyone has to climb the same mountain.
没有捷径!你不能欺骗“成功系统”,实际上,你越试图欺骗,你离目标越远。成功之路没有小道,每人都要攀登同一座山峰。
Success Is Simple, But Hard 成功,简单也困难
What deceives most people is the fact that success looks so simple, and it is simple. Simple to understand that is. But success is also very hard…and it’s hard because it requires you to be consistent; it requires you to change your lifestyle (your daily actions, thinking, and habits).
蒙蔽众人的是成功看起来如此简单,它的确简单。但成功同时也很困难,它难在需要你坚持,难在需要你改变生活方式(你的日常行为、思考和习惯)。
…Never forget that your habits will take you farther than your desires!
不要忘了比起欲望,习惯能带你走更远。
Desire can only take you so far…before you burn out, you must rely on the train tracks of habit to get you to your destination. 在你欲望灼尽时,它只能带你走这么远,而习惯却能带你到终点。
You have to Change Your Lifestyle 改变你的生活方式
It is your lifestyle that produces rewards. A lifestyle of working hard every day produces certain rewards; a lifestyle of learning everyday produces certain rewards; a lifestyle of eating right everyday produces certain rewards; a lifestyle of focusing on your passion every day, produces certain rewards.
是你的生活方式产生回报。每日努力必有所回报。每日学习必有所回报,每日健康饮食必有所回报,每日专注于你的激情必有所回报。
A lifestyle of trying to cheat the system and get something for nothing, also produces, but it doesn’t produce rewards, it produces confusion.
试图欺骗“成功系统”、不劳而获的生活方式也会产生结果,但却不是产生回报,它产生了困惑。
It produces confusion because you don’t understand why you can’t have the results that others have. After all, you’ve been working hard for six months, why aren’t you rich yet. You’ve worked out every day this month, why aren’t you skinny.
它产生出困惑因为你不懂为何人有你无。毕竟,你勤奋工作6个月,为何不能富有。你本月每天锻炼,为何不能苗条。
Question 问题
Do people gather apples from an orange tree, or coconuts from a peach tree? No, every tree produces after its kind. To produce success, you must have the roots of success; you must have the lifestyle that produces the fruit that you want to enjoy.
人能否从橘子树上采摘苹果?或从桃子树上采摘椰子?不能,每棵树结它自己的果,为了收获成功,你须具备成功之源;你须有能结出收获之果的生活方式。
Change改变
You have to change your lifestyle, this bears repeating because this is the key to success. To get the results you want, you must adopt the lifestyle (i.e. habits and thinking patterns) of the people who currently have those results.
重申一遍你要改变你的生活方式,因为这是成功的关键。想成功,你须采用成功人士的生活方式(例如,习惯与思维模式)。
When I say “adopt the lifestyle,” I’m saying that you have to live it every single day. Otherwise you end up chasing a mirage in the desert of life. The “mirage” is a shortcut to your goal, and so you run after it, but it’s just a mirage, and it puts you further into the desert, and so you chase another mirage, only to put yourself that much farther into the desert.
当我说“采用这种生活方式”,我是指将这种生活方式用于你生活的每一天。否则,你最终追寻的不过是沙漠中的海市蜃楼。“海市蜃楼”犹如你目标的捷径,你追寻它,结果发现只是一场幻境,反而让自己陷入沙漠深入,然后你又继续追寻另一个海市蜃楼,结果在沙漠中迷失得更远。
Decide today to live a life that produces the rewards you desire. Decide to change your habits! Decide to change your thinking! Decide to learn from those who have already succeeded! (Do what the successful do; if you don’t know what they do – then find someone who’s successful and ask them to mentor you.)
今天就痛下决心,过一种能实现你梦想的生活。改变你的习惯!改变你的思维!向成功人士学习!(做成功人士所做,如果你不知道他们是怎么做的——找到某成功之人,请他赐教)
Use what self-discipline you have…to think and act like the successful; use your discipline to create the right habits, and in time, you will be successful.

自律,总像成功的人一样的思考和行动。通过自律来形成对的习惯,假以时日,你也会成功。
