90 Life Is Full of Choices 生命充满选择

Michael is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, "If I were any better, I'd be twins!" He was a natural motivator.
迈克尔是那种会让你真想恨一把的家伙,他总是乐呵呵的,总是有一些积极上进的话可以讲。如果有人问他近况如何,他总会回答说:“好得不能再好了,否则我就成双胞胎
了!”他天生就是一个动力机。

one day I went up to Michael and asked him, "I don' t get it. You can' t be positive all the time. How do you do it?"
有一天我找到迈克尔问:“我真弄不明白。你怎么总是那样积极乐观户你是怎么做到的”?

Michael replied, each morning I wake up and say to myself 'Mike, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be in a bad mood.' I choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it. Every time someone comes to me complaining I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life."
迈克尔回答说,“每天早晨。我醒来时就会对自己说。”迈克,今天你有两种选择。你可以选择心情愉快,你也可以选择心情恶劣。我总是选择心情愉快。每次有不愉快的事情发生时,我可以选择成为它的受害者,也可以选择从中吸取教训。我会选择从中吸取教训。每次有人来找我抱怨时,我可以选择认同他们的抱怨也可以帮他们指出生活的积极面。我会选择指出生活的积极面。

Several years later, I heard Michael was involved in a serious accident, falling off 60 feet from a communications tower.After l8 hours of surgery, and weeks of intensive care, Michael was released from the hospital with rods placed in his back. I saw Michael about six months after the accident. When I asked him how he was, he replied, "If I were any better, I'd be twins. Wanna see my scars?" I declined to see his wounds, but did ask him what had gone through his mind as the accident took place.
几年之后,我听说迈克尔出事故了,而且很严重,他从一座通讯大楼的6O英尺高处摔了下来。在长达18个小时的手术和数周的精心护理之后,迈克尔出院了,但背部安了钢筋。大约事故半年之后,我见到了迈克尔。当我问他怎么样时,他说,“好得不能再好了,否则我就成双胞胎了。想看看我的伤疤吗。”我没看他的伤痕,但问他事故发生时他是怎么想的。

"The first thing that went through my mind was the well being of my soon-to-born daughter," Michael replied. "Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered there had two choices: I could choose to live or I could choose to die. I chose to live." "Weren't you scared? Did you lose consciousness?" I asked. Michael continued, "... the paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine. I told them, 'I'm choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead'."
“我首先想到的是我那即将出生的女儿的幸福健康。”迈克尔答道,“当时我躺在地上想着我有两种选择:我可以选择活下去,也可以选择死亡。而我选择了活下去。”“你难道不害怕吗?你当时失去知觉了吗?”我问。迈克尔接着说,“……那些护理人员棒极了。他们一直告诉我说我会没事的。我就告诉他们说,我要选择活下去。请把我当成一个活人而不是死人来做这个手术。”

Michael lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude.I 1eamed from him that every day we have a choice to live fully. Attitude is everything.
迈克尔活了下来,这要感谢他那些医生的高明医术,但也要归功于他那令人赞叹的乐观态度。从他那里,我学到了每天我们都可以选择充实地去活。态度意味着一切。
