阻挠你追寻梦想的十大谎言

阻挠你追寻梦想的十大谎言

本文选自《外语小事》的博客,点击查看博客原文

  Unfortunately, just before you take your first step on the righteous journey to pursue your dreams, people around you, even the ones who deeply care for you, will give you awful advice. It’s not because they have evil intentions. It’s because they don’t understand the big picture—what your dreams, passions, and life goals mean to you. They don’t understand that, to you, the reward is worth the risk. So they try to protect you by shielding you from the possibility of failure, which, in effect, also shields you from the possibility of making your dreams a reality.

  不幸的是,就在你起步准备踏上追逐梦想的正途时,身边的人,即使是那些深刻关心着你的人,会给你提些糟糕的建议。这并非是因为他们动机不良,而是因为他们不懂得你的宏图愿景——你的梦想、激情和人生目标对你而言意味着什么。他们不理解对你而言,那回报值得你去冒险。因此,他们设法保护你免遭可能的失败。而这实际上也抹杀了你梦想成真的可能性。

  Here are ten ill-advised tips (lies) people will likely tell you when you decide to pursue your dreams and the reasons why they are dreadfully mistaken:

  在你决定追求梦想时,人们很可能会告诉你一些糟糕的建议(谎言),这里列出了十条这样的建议以及它们大错特错的原因。

  1. You can follow your dreams someday, but right now you need to buckle down and be responsible。

  某一天你可以追随梦想,但是现在你需要开始认真工作,还要有责任心。

  Someday? When is “someday”? “Someday” is not a day at all. It’s a foggy generalization of a time that will likely never come. Today is the only day guaranteed to you. Today is the only day when you can begin to make a difference in your life. And pursuing your dreams is what life is all about. So don’t be irresponsible. Don’t wait until “someday”. Make today the first day of the rest of your new life。

  某一天?“某一天”到底是哪一天?“某一天”根本不是一个确切的日子,它只是含糊地概括了一个很可能永不会到来的时刻。唯有今天才是掌握在你手上的,唯有今天你才能开始改变你的生活。而追寻梦想是人生的全部意义。所以,不要不负责任,不要等到“某一天”。让今天成为你接下来的新生活的第一天吧。

  2. You’re totally screwed if it doesn’t work out。

  如果没有成功,你就彻底搞砸了。

  Wrong! This is a giant, lame load of BS. You’re not even close to being screwed. In fact, the worst case scenario is that things don’t work out and you have to go back to do exactly what you are doing right now。

  错!这是一句蹩脚的大废话。你甚至连搞砸的边儿都还没沾到。事实上,最糟糕的情况也不过是事情没有成功,你不得不回头去做你现在正在做的。

  3. It’s safer to stay at your day job。

  待在你的日常工作岗位上更保险。

  Sure, I suppose. But you know what’s even safer than that? Going home, locking yourself in your bedroom, and never, ever coming out. And just like that, you will have flushed your entire life and your dreams down the toilet. Remember, safer doesn’t always mean better。

  这是一定的,我觉得。但是你知道比这还要更保险的是什么吗?回家,把你自己锁进卧室,然后永远永远不要再出来。就像这样,你将把你的整个人生和梦想都冲下马桶。请记住,更保险并不总意味着更好。

  4. That’s impossible!

  这不可能!

  It’s only impossible if you never do anything about it. The reason that certain things seem impossible is simply because nobody has achieved them yet. But this doesn’t mean that with your help these things won’t become possible in the future. If you truly dedicate yourself to an end result, almost anything is possible. You just have to want it bad enough。

  只有你从来什么都不做,才没有可能。有些事看起来不可能,仅仅是因为还没有任何人做成功过。但是这并不表示在你的努力下,未来这些事也不会成为可能。如果你真正致力于某个最终结果,几乎任何事都是可能的,只要你有足够急切的渴求。

  5. Only a lucky few “make it”。

  只有少数幸运儿“成功了”。

  That’s because those lucky few got off their rear ends and did something about it! They had the drive, determination, and willpower that you have right now. You can be one of them. It’s up to you, and only you。

  这是因为那些少数的幸运儿奋起努力,为梦想付出了行动!他们有你现在拥有的动力、决心和毅力。你可以成为他们中的一员。这取决于你,而且只取决于你。

  6. You might fail. And failing is bad。

  你可能会失败,而失败是很糟糕的事。

  Failures are simply stepping stones to the success. No matter how it turns out, it always ends up just the way it should be. Either you succeed or you learn something: win-win. The biggest mistake you can make is doing nothing because you’re only too scared to make a mistake. If you can’t handle the failure, then you can’t handle the success either。
