以下為正文——

奧巴馬寫給女兒的信:停止在做的17件事

Life is short. It may feel like it takesforever sometimes, but the reality is that you live, and a short time later,you die. It happens so quickly, many people don’t even realize they had a lifeuntil it’s already over.

生命如此短暫。我們有時候覺得生命怎麼也走不完,實際上,你現在活著,過不了多久,就會死去。人生真是轉眼一瞬間的事情,很多人到臨死前才意識到這一生已經結束。

1.Stop Doubting Yourself

停止懷疑自己

If you don’t believe in yourself, nobodywill. Success starts in your mind, and if all you’re doing is putting yourselfdown and predicting failure, it’ll become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Insteadof doubting yourself, think positively. Not only will you be happier and moresuccessful, you’ll spread it to everyone around you.

如果你自己都不相信自己,那沒人會相信你。成功源於你的頭腦,如果你所做的是不斷地看扁自己,預言著未來的失敗,這就真的會成為現實。與其懷疑自己,不如積極的考慮問題。不僅會讓自己更加開心和成功,你還能夠感染到周圍的人。

2.Stop Being Negative

停止消極

Now that you’re done doubting yourself,stop doubting others. You don’t like when people are critical of you, so stopbeing critical of others. Think about how you make other people feel – even ifyou have good intentions, people don’t like hearing negativity.

現在你不要再懷疑自己了,也別再懷疑身邊的人。你不希望被人對你挑剔,那麼也不要再去挑剔身邊的人。想想你給別人帶來的什麼樣的感受吧——即使出發點是好的,別人也不想聽到那麼多消極的事情呀。

3.Stop Procrastinating

停止拖延

I don’t feel like procrastinating right now– I’ll do it tomorrow. When you procrastinate, you remain stagnant. Whateveryou’re putting off doesn’t go away; resolve the problem, and move on. You’ll bemuch happier in the long run.

我現在不想做,還是留到明天吧。一旦開始拖延,其實你已經停滯不前了。你拖延的事情不會自行解決。解決問題,繼續前行吧。從長遠角度來說你會更加快樂。

4.Stop Being Mean

不要那麼刻薄

It’s completely possible to step onsomeone’s toes without meaning to – it happens all the time. There’s no need topile on by purposefully doing mean things, so make a conscious effort to stopbeing mean. If someone wrongs you, let it go. There’s no need to seek vengeanceunless that’s the type of person you want to be.
