不可能就是可能.jpg

 

Out of the question is possible

不可能”就是可能

When Henry ford decided to produce his famous v-8 motor, he chose to build an engine with the entire eight cylinders cast in one block, and instructed his engineers to produce a design in one for the engine. The design was placed on paper, but the engineers agreed, to a man, that it was simply impossible to cast an eight-cylinder engine-block in one piece.

亨利福特在要制造有名的v8汽缸引擎汽车时,曾指示他手下的工程师着手设计一种引擎,要把八个汽缸全放在一起。设计的纸上作业完成了,但是工程师们都异口同声地跟福特说,“要把八个汽缸全放在一起,压根是不可能。”

Ford said, “Produce it anyway.”

福特说:“无论如何都要做出来。”

“But,” they replied, “It’s impossible!”

他们又回答:“但是,那不可能啊!”

“Go ahead.” Ford commanded, “And stay on the job until you succeed, no matter how much time is required.”

“动手做。”福特一声令下, “不论花多少时间,做到交差为止!”

The engineers went ahead. There was nothing else for them to do, if they were to remain on the ford staff. Six months passed and nothing happened. Another six months passed, and still nothing happened. The engineers tried every conceivable plan to carry out the orders, but the thing seemed out of the question:“impossible!”

工程师只得着手去做。如果他们还想呆在福特的公司里讨生活,就别无他途可行,值得去做。过了半年,没有动静。又过了半年,一样没有半点进展。工程师们试过了所有想得出来的计划去执行命令,结果仍然是:“不可能!”

At the end of the year ford checked with his engineers, and again they informed him they had found no way to carry out his orders.

过了一年,福特的工程师们都没有进展,他们再次告诉他,他们想不出有什么办法可以做到的指示。

“go right head,” said ford, “I want it, and I’ll have it.”

“继续做,”福特说。“我要八汽缸引擎,就一定要做到!”

They went ahead, and then, as if by a stroke of magic, the secret was discovered.

他们继续努力,然后仿佛如有神助似的,做法出笼了。

The ford determination had won once more!

福特的决心又打赢了一仗。

This story may not be described with minute accuracy, but the sum and substance of it is correct. Deduce from it, you who wish to think and grow rich, the secret of the ford millions, if you can. You’ll not have to look very far.

这个故事也许说的不够详尽,但是故事的内容却都是“如假包换”的。要想致富的你,从这个故事可以推算出福特百万家财的秘密何在。务须舍近求远,就在眼前。

Henry ford was successful, because he understood and applied the principles of success. One of these is desire: knowing what one wants. Remember this Ford story as you read, and pick out the lines in which the secret of his stupendous achievement have been described. If you can do this, if you can lay your finger on the particular group of principles which made Henry ford rich, you can equal his achievements in almost any calling for which you are suited.

亨利福特了解成功的原则,也运用了这些原则,所以他成功了。这些原则中,有一项就是渴望:知道自己要做的是什么。阅读这篇文章时,请牢记这则福特的故事,时时在字里行间寻找他了不起的原因。只要你能做到,能正确无误地指认出福特所运用的原则,就几乎可以在适合自己的任何行业里,和他一样地出类拔萃。
