  Opportunity

  善待机遇

  The air we breathe is so freely available that we take it for granted. Yet without it we could not survive more than a few minutes. For the most part, the same air is available to everyone, and everyone needs it. Some people use the air to sustain them while they sit around and feel sorry for themselves. Others breathe in the air and use the energy to make a magnificent life for themselves.

  我们呼吸的空气如此易得,以至于我们视它为理所当然,但没了空气我们却坚持不了几分钟。从很大程度上来说,每个人呼吸到的空气都是一样的,并且每个人都离不开空气。有些人靠空气来维持生命,但他们只会坐在那里自怨自艾。另外一些人吸进空气,利用空气提供的能量为自己开创壮丽的人生。

  Opportunity is the same way. It is everywhere. Opportunity is so freely available that we take it for granted. Yet opportunity alone is not enough to create success. Opportunity must be the seized and acted upon in order to have value. So many people are so anxious to “get in on the ground floor” of opportunity, as if the opportunity will do all the work. That’s impossible.

  机遇也是如此。它无处不在。机遇如此易得,以至于我们视它为理所应当。然而仅凭机遇却不足以创造成功,必须抓住机遇并采取行动才能实现其价值。有许多人一得到机会,就急着要成功,好象有了机遇就万事大吉。这是不可能的。

  Just as you need air to breathe, you need opportunity to succeed. It takes more than just breathing in the fresh air of opportunity, however. You must make use of that opportunity. That’s not up to the opportunity. That’s up to you. It doesn’t matter what “floor” the opportunity is on. What matters is what you do with it.

  正如你需要空气来呼吸,你也需要机遇来获得成功。但是只机遇的新鲜空气远远不够。你必须好好利用机遇。这并不取决于机遇本身,而是由你自己决定。你在什么时候得到机遇并不重要。重要的是你怎样把握机
