84 Success Is a Choice 成功是一种选择

All of us ought to be able to prepare for the predictable challenges and setbacks that crop up every day. If we expect that life won't be perfect, we'll be able to avoid an impelling force to quit. But even if you are strong enough to persist through the obstacle course of life and work, sometimes you will encounter an harmful event that will completely knock you on your back.
我们每个人都应做好准备,迎接每天的挫折和挑战。如果我们相信生活并非十全十美,我们就能避免因为压力而选择逃避。但即使你意志坚强,能够抵御生活、工作中的困难,有时你也会陷入逆境,大受打击却摔不及防。

Whether it's a financial loss, the loss of respect of your peers or loved ones, or some other traumatic event in your life these major setbacks leave you doubting yourself and wondering if things can ever change for the better again.
无论你出现了经济损失,还是失去同伴或所爱的人的尊敬,或是其他生命中可能遭到的创伤事件,这些重大挫折都会使你对自己产生怀疑,并怀疑情况是否会好转。

Adversity happens to all of us, and it happens all the time. Some form of major adversity is either going to be there or it's lying in wait just around the corner. To ignore adversity is to yield to the ultimate self-delusion.
每个人都会遇到不幸,而且它每时每刻都在发生。有些重大灾难不是近在眼前,就是待在某个角落里等待时机。忽视逆境就是自我欺骗。

But you must recognize that history is full of examples of men and women who achieved greatness despite facing difficulties so steep that they easily could have crushed their spirit and left them lying in the dust. Moses was a stutterer, yet he was called on to be the voice of God. Abraham Lincoln over- came a difficult childhood, depression, the death of two sons,and constant ridicule during the Civil War to become arguably our greatest president ever. Helen Keller made an impact on the world despite being deaf, dumb, and blind from an early age. Franklin Roosevelt had polio.
但你必须认识到历史上获得成功的人有许多,尽管面对困难是极为艰难的,他们本可能瞬间在精神上被击垮或者无果而终。摩西有口吃。但他后来却被上帝传召而成为上帝的福音使者。亚伯拉罕·林肯克服了童年的困难、情绪低落时期,也克服了丧失两个儿子的痛苦及内战中接踵而来的非难,最终无可争辩地成为美国历史上最伟大的总统。尽管海伦·凯勒早年双目失明,双耳失聪,又是个哑巴。但她对全世界都产生了影响。而富兰克林·罗斯福则患过小儿麻痹症。

There are endless examples. These were people who not only looked adversity in the face but learned valuable lessons about overcoming difficult circumstances and were able to move ahead.
这样的例子举不胜举。这些人不仅用于面对困难,而且还从战胜困难的过程中获得了宝贵的经验,继而勇往直前。
