工作是为了谋生,还是活得更好?

工作是为了谋生,还是活得更好?


Yesterday I was thinking about the difference between successful people and those who don’t achieve anything significant and I made an interesting discovery.
昨天我一直在思考成功人士和无名之辈的区别,结果发现了一件很有意思的事。


This difference may at first look obvious, but it’s quite opposite. It lies in the purpose people have that fuels them to take action.
成功人士和无名之辈咋一看很容易区分,而事实并非如此。他们的区别在于行动背后的目标。


Everyone has a purpose behind their actions. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t take action!
每个人做事都有目标,没有目标是不会行动的!


But successful people have a completely different purpose behind the actions they take. When they take action, at the back of their minds they think about success that this action is going to bring them.
成功人士在行动之前有抱着和他人不一样的目标。当他们采取行动时,脑子里想的是这个行动将给他们带来的成功。


So let me ask you these questions. What’s the purpose behind your actions? Do you work to thrive or to survive?
那我就问问你,你行动的目的是什么?你工作是为了谋生还是想让日子过得更好?


Do you go to work to feed your family or to create an amazing lifestyle?
你工作是为了养家糊口还是创造美好生活?


Is your work fuelled by a beautiful vision in your mind or do you take action to have enough money to cover your expenses?
你工作是因为心中有着美好的憧憬还是赚钱满足日常开销?


These two types of purposes will result in completely different life experiences.

People who work to survive are the ones who fear that some unexpected bill will arrive. They go to bed worrying about money and trivial things. They hate their employment but don’t quit because they doubt their own abilities to create something greater.
这两种不同的目标带来截然相反的生活经历。那些为了谋生而工作的人常担心有意外的支出。上床睡觉时也在想着钱和其他琐事。他们不喜欢自己的工作但又不愿意辞职,因为他们觉得自己没能力混得更好。


I know this kind of motivation because I was like that once. In the past my whole focus was on survival. And that’s a very uncomfortable state to be in because you are constantly worried about insignificant things. You create pictures of lack and limitation in your mind and you take action to prevent this envisioned future from happening. This state does not allow you to be creative therefore you cannot achieve anything great.
我很了解这种心理因为我自己以前就是个这样的人。以前我就担心一件事:能不能吃饱饭。这是一种很不舒服的状态,因为你总在担心一些小事。你总觉得自己没能力,从来不去设想美好的未来。生活在这样的状态下会丧失创造力,这样一来你也就一无所成。


Now there is a very tiny percentage of people who don’t fall for the “life is hard” story and they are fuelled by an entirely different purpose. They work to thrive and they don’t think about why something cannot be done. They have a beautiful vision and they take constant action to make that vision a reality.
然而,有一小部分人就是不认同“生活很苦”的话,他们的人生目标也完全不同。他们是为了追求更好的生活,他们觉得没有什么事做不成。他们对生活充满了憧憬,并能够为之付出行动。


That’s what drives me today – a vision for a great future. I no longer look back and worry about negative things that could happen to me. I wake up feeling full of energy and I keep the expectant attitude of what’s great going to happen today. Such attitude invites great opportunities and I’m constantly surprised by good events that take place in my life.
为了美好的明天----如今这也是激励我的人生目标。我不再往后看,担心不好的事儿。早上醒来,我精神抖擞,期待着一天中美好的开始。这种心态给我带来了好的机遇,我常为生活中发生的好事而惊喜。


I don’t really want to involve my good friend here, but she perfectly illustrates the person who works to survive. So yesterday I was at home and after I finished working on my laptop and was drinking latte I received a call from her. She called to see how I was. I straight away told how great everything was going and I mentioned that I keep getting inspired to create new products and write new articles. Then I asked how she was. Here’s what she said:

You know, like always…
尽管我非常不情愿,但我不得不提我一个朋友,她是典型的那种为生活而生活的人。昨天我呆在家里没有出门,用笔记本做完工作后喝了一杯拿铁,正在这时她的电话来了,问我最近怎么样了,我毫不犹豫的告诉她最近发生的好事儿,我还说我的灵感来了,设计了不少新产品还写了新文章。然后,我问她你怎么样了?她是这样回答的: 。。。。。。,哎!你知道啊,还是老样子。。。


I asked if there was something wrong as she sounded so disappointed. She replied that she had some family problems and that nobody appreciated how hard she works etc., etc. Then I told her that she should be positive no matter what because if she would remain positive soon there would be no reasons for her to become negative. (Trust me, that’s NOT the first time I told her so:)
