双语:让自己内心强大的7种方法

2015-09-15    来源:fortune    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

当发展受阻时,强者不会一味抱怨和等待,而是快速从错误中吸取教训,然后冲向下一个更高的目标。

回答者:尼尔森•王,著有《简历已死》一书。

Being mentally strong at work is critical to your success. How you build that mental muscle though, is often something that people don’t think about a lot while at work.
在工作中保持内心强大对取得成功至关重要。但怎么才能成为精神上的强者,许多人并没有仔细想过。

Here are seven ways you can be mentally strong at work:
以下就是可以让你在工作中内心强大起来的7种方法:

1. Embrace Change
1、拥抱变化

Hanna Phan’s  story is a great example of embracing change. She was applying for jobs but wasn’t finding success with her resume. Why? Well, times have changed. The resume just isn’t as effective as it used to be. If you want to stand out from the crowd of job seekers, a resume doesn’t exactly yell out, “Hey, I’m awesome!” — unless you’re the CEO of Google or Facebook .
汉娜•潘的故事就是一个很好的例子。她想要找工作,但她的简历没能帮助她取得成功。为什么呢?因为时代在变化。简历不再像以前一样有用了。如果你希望从芸芸众生中脱颖而出,一份简历通常并不能让人虎躯一震——除非你是谷歌或Facebook的CEO。

So what did Hanna do? Instead of complaining about the job market or how hard it was to get interviews with her resume, she embraced the fact that she had to do something radically awesome to get her potential employer’s attention.
那么,汉娜是怎样做的?她没有抱怨就业市场,也没有埋怨光凭一份简历多么难以获得面试,而是积极接受现实,知道自己需要做出真正出色的事情,才能吸引潜在雇主的注意。

She created a presentation resume video and tweeted it at the CEO of one of the hottest technology companies in the valley. You can YouTube search “Hanna Phan Presume.”
她创作了一个个人履历演示视频,并在Twitter上将其推送给了硅谷最炙手可热的一家科技公司CEO。你可以在YouTube上搜索“Hanna Phan Presume”看到它。

And yes, she got the job.
最终,她求职成功了。

2. Be willing to take risks
2、勇于承担风险

There’s a risk to not taking a risk. It’s complacency. It’s stagnancy.
不敢去冒险本身就是一种风险。它意味着懈怠自满,停滞不前。

When I was 26, I had this idea that people would love to have flashcards to help themselves prepare for interviewing. After all, who likes to go to the store to buy pens, notecards and then have to write each of the questions and answers on their own?
我在26岁时发现,人们很喜欢使用可抽取的小卡片来准备面试。不过,谁愿意去商店购买钢笔、卡片,再在上面写上各个问题,然后自问自答呢?

So I decided I was going to build an app. The only problem was that I had no design skills, no marketing budget and no connections to developers. Oh, and I also couldn’t code — slight problem.
所以我决定做一个应用。唯一的问题是我不会设计,没有营销资金,也不认识开发者。呃,我还不会编码,但这都是小问题。

Building an app was really risky. Almost everyone I talked to told me that.
做一个应用真的风险很大。几乎每个跟我谈过的人都这么说。

So what did I do? I buried myself into articles, trainings and networked with people in the space to learn as much as I could. Once I had an idea of how to approach it, I hired a developer on Elance and designed the app myself with Photoshop. Within a year I had built three top-50 apps in their respective categories. One app hit 75,000 downloads in a day.
那么我是怎么做的?我一头扎进各种教程和培训中,与业内人士交流,尽可能多地掌握知识。想清楚了如何实现目标之后,我在Elance上雇佣了一个开发者,自己用Photoshop设计应用。在一年之内,我就做出了三个应用,它们在各自类别里都排进了前50名。其中一个应用的日下载数最高达到了7.5万。

Want to be mentally strong? You can’t be afraid. You have to be willing to take calculated risks.
想要变得坚强?你可不能胆怯。你得愿意承担那些经过计算的合理风险。

3. Learn from the past and look toward the future
3、从过往中吸取教训,永远向前看

You’re going to make mistakes along the way. I call those “speed bumps.” (My good friend Nate Leung gave me that phrase.) Yes, sometimes it makes the ride a little uncomfortable, but hey, have you ever been stopped by a speed bump before? I don’t think so.
在成长途中你会犯错。我把它们叫做“减速条”。(这是我的好朋友内特•梁提出的说法。)对,有时候这会让你开车时有点不适,不过,你会因为减速条而停车吗?我想不会。

When I was at a Fortune 500 company, I emailed my boss’s boss once letting him know that I couldn’t make it to the regional sales team meeting. Guess what? My boss got angry that I emailed his boss instead of him. What seemed like an innocent email was actually a political fiasco, apparently.
我曾经就职于《财富》500强公司,当时我给顶头上司的老板发了一封邮件,告诉他我无法出席地区销售团队的会议。猜猜发生了什么?我的上司非常愤怒,因为我越级汇报了。一封似乎很无辜的邮件,实际上“政治不正确”。

I was really young and new to my career at the time, so I dwelled on it and felt terrible for a few days.Eventually, I realized I just needed to learn from it. Everyone has different styles at work and it’s important to be aware of how they want to work with you.
当时我真的很年轻,职业生涯刚刚起步,所以我总是在想这件事,好几天都感觉很糟糕。最后我意识到,我只是需要从中吸取教训。每个人都有不同的工作风格,搞清楚他们想要怎么跟你共事十分重要。

Guess what? I barely even think about that day now. In fact, I’ve actually never thought about it until now. That’s what I call a speed bump. If that happened to me today, I wouldn’t even blink. You learn to realize what’s a big deal and what’s not.
我几乎不再想那天发生的事情了。实际上,直到刚才提到这事之前,我一次也没想过。这就是我说的减速条。如果那件事现在发生在我身上,我甚至都不会眨一眨眼。你需要学会辨别哪些是重要的事情,哪些不是。

So when you run into a speed bump, learn from mistakes and move on. Keep your eyes on the future. You’ve got a lot of epic awesomeness ahead of you.
所以当你遭遇减速条时,吸取经验教训,继续前进吧。要着眼于未来。前方还有很多了不起的事情在等着你。

4. Stay positive
4、保持积极心态

One of my best friends, Erik, had an awesome secret to staying positive.
我的好朋友埃里克有个很棒的秘诀,它能够帮助你始终保持积极的态度。

Anytime a conversation would get tense or someone would get upset, Erik would acknowledge the feeling, talk it out with that person and then bring up a positive comment about a completely different topic. He wouldn’t let people dwell on negative emotions. If anything, he would try to cheer you up by making you laugh about something.
每当谈话陷入僵局,或是有人情绪沮丧,埃里克总能感受到。他会与那个人沟通,然后换一个不同的话题,提出积极的观点。他从来不让人们沉浸于负面情绪中。他会尝试着给你打气,设法让你开怀大笑。

And you know what? It worked every single time for me.
这对我每次都很奏效。

If you want to be mentally strong, stop stewing on negative thoughts and feelings. Think positive.
如果你想坚强,就不要纠结于负面的想法和感受。要积极乐观地考虑问题。

5. “Celebrate what you’ve accomplished, but raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed.”
5、“为你取得的成就庆祝,不过每成功一次后都要把自我目标提高一点。”

I freaking love this quote. Thanks, Mia Hamm.
我非常喜欢这句话。谢谢你,玛利尔•哈姆。

In February, I threw my first big marketing event and one executive roundtable. We had 100 customers and prospects show up. There were laughs, an amazing customer story and an undeniable buzz in the building.After the event, people mentioned that it was a great event.
今年2月,我启动了第一场由我自己组织的大型营销活动,以及一次行政圆桌会议。有100个客户和潜在客户出席了我们的活动。会场中充满欢声笑语,我们分享了一个精彩的客户案例,赢得了满堂喝彩。结束后,人们说这场活动真棒。

Do you know what I did after the event?
在活动结束后我干了什么呢?

I thought about how I could make it better.
我想的是怎样才能把它做得更好。

In April, I threw my second big marketing event. We had 140 people attend. We also hosted four roundtables simultaneously. There were laughs, an amazing executive panel and an undeniable buzz in the building.
今年4月,我启动了第二场大型营销活动。这次有140人参会。我们还同时举办了四场圆桌会议。高管研讨会十分精彩,会场中充满欢声笑语,再次赢得了满堂喝彩。

After the event, people mentioned that it was even better than the first event.
活动结束后,人们说这场活动比第一场还要好。

Do you know what I did after the event?
在活动结束后我干了什么呢?

I thought about how I could make it better.
我想的是怎样才能把它做得更好。

Keep raising the bar. It’s how you stay mentally strong.
不断提高自我目标。这就是你保持坚强的方式。

6. Focus on what you can control
6、专注于你可以控制的事情

Draw two circles that slightly overlap. In one, write, “Stuff that is important.” In the other circle, write, “Stuff that you can actually control.” See that small area where the two circles overlap? That’s what you should focus your energy on.
画两个有一部分重合的圆圈。在其中一个写道:“重要的员工”。另一个写道:“你可以控制的员工”。看到两个圆圈重叠的地方了吗?那些就是你应当着重关注的人。

7. Keep your eyes on the big picture
7、着眼于长远规划

What’s your big picture? Is it building the playbook on how to grow a start up? Is it leading and inspiring a team to be at their best? Is it raising a great family and having great work life balance?
你的长远规划是什么?是创建一家公司并让它成长壮大吗?是领导一个团队,并激励他们做到最好吗?是经营一个很棒的家庭,并在家庭和工作上取得平衡吗?

Whatever your big picture is, stay focused on it. Don’t get dragged down by the small stuff.
无论你的长远规划是什么,专注于它。不要被一些小事情所拖累。

Now go out there and make it happen.
现在就去实现它们吧。
