  Please Remember, You Are Special

  请记住,你是与众不同的

  A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?”

  一位有名的演讲家手里拿着一张20美元的纸币,开始了讨论会。在200人的屋子里, 他问道:“谁想要这20美元纸币?”

  Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this $20. to one of you. but first, let me do this.”

  开始有人举手。他说我会把这20美元纸币给你们中间的一位,但是,先看看我会这么做。”

  He proceeded to crumple the 20 dollar note up. He then asked, “Who still wants it?” Still the hands were up in the air.

  他开始把这张纸币揉皱,然后他问道:“还有人想要它吗? ”仍然有很多手举在空中。

  “Well,” he replied, “what if I do this?” He dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.

  “好,”他说道,“如果我这样做会怎么样呢? ”他把纸币扔到地上,开始用皮鞋使劲踩踏。然后他拣起又脏又皱的纸币,

  “Now, who still wants it?”

  “现在,还有人要它吗? ”

  Still the hands went into the air.

  空中仍举着很多手。

  “My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.”

  “朋友们,刚刚你们已经得出一个非常宝贵的经验。不管我怎么糟蹋这张纸币,你们仍然想要它,因为它的价值没有降低。它仍然是20美元。”

  “Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless; but no matter what happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.”

  “在生活中,很多次我们被自己制定的决策和身边的环境所抛弃、蹂躏,甚至碾入尘土。我们感到自己一无是处。但是不管发生了什么,或者将要发生什么,你们都永远不会 失去自己的价值。”

  “Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased you are still priceless to those who love you. The worth of our lives comes, not in what we do or who we know, but by Who We Are.”

  “无论你肮脏或者干净,皱巴巴的或者被折磨,对周围爱你的人来说你仍然是无可替代的。我们生活的价值不在于我们做了什么,或者我们认识谁,生活的价值在于我们是谁。”

  “You are special ——don’t ever forget it.”

  “你是与众不同的,永远不要忘记这一点!”
