13-Choosing Words to Create Success

慎言以成功

Annette Colby

安妮特•科尔比

Did you know that you can increase your ability to be successful by consciously choosing the right words? It's true! Let's say you're motivated, excited even, to create change in your life. You've even gone so far as to put your well-formed goals down in writing. From there, you've determined your first steps to begin the process of changing your eating habits and exercising more. You've got enormous enthusiasm and know exactly what it is you're going to do. You choose your goal for tomorrow, and then inadvertently cripple your success before you even start. You say, "I'll try."

你是否知道,你可以通过有意识地选择合适的词语来增强自己获取成功的能力?这是真的!这么说吧,你有动力,甚至很兴奋地要改变自己的生活。你甚至已经把箱号的目标写下来。你已经决定开始这一过程的前几步:改变饮食习惯并多做运动。你很有热情,并且确切知道自己要做些什么。你选择了未来的目标,但在还没有开始之前就无意间削弱了自己成功的几率。你说:“我会试试。”

What does "I'll try" mean? It means you've given yourself an out. Should some obstacle surface, you now have a built-in escape route that gets you off the hook. The word presupposes failure. It lacks intention and confidence. You are sowing doubt in your own mind. It says, "Alright, I'll give it a go, but I can't really see it working out."

“我会试试”意味着什么?它意味着你给自己留下了退路。如果障碍出现,那么你就有了一条让你逃离困境的退路。“试”这个字预示了失败,它缺乏目的和信心。你在自己的头脑中播下了怀疑的种子,它说:“好吧,我会试一下,但我并不真的觉得自己会成功。”

Now observe what it feels like to say "I am". For example, "I am now committed to feeling good by honoring my decision to walk 20 minutes today." If it doesn't feel right, then you've selected a goal that is something other than your natural first step. Back up and find the action step you are ready to undertake. It doesn't matter how small and insignificant it may seem at the time. You're better off starting with something teeny-tiny and achieving success, than starting with something you already know you're not ready for. The wise Lao-Tzu once stated, "A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step." Make sure you are able to complete your first step.

现在看一下说“我要”是什么感觉。例如,“我现在要为自己今天散步20分钟的决定而感到骄傲。”如果感觉不对,那就说明你选择的目标不是你的本意。退回去找到你准备采取的行动步骤。那个步骤在那时看起来多么微不足道并没有关系,你最好从微小的事情做起,起而达到成功,而不是从你知道自己还没准备好的事情开始。博学的老子曾经说过:“千里之行,始于足下。”要确信你有能力完成自己的第一步。

Perhaps having revised your initial starting point, again notice what it feels like to say, "I am now". This phrase directs you and says that you have power and intention. It says that you believe in what you are saying and you will find a way to make it happen. You've made a commitment to yourself that you've chosen to honor. It says that you will find a way to get it done even if things get in the way. It means that even if difficulties pop up, you'll find some way to stick to your intent.

你也许已经修改了自己最初的出发点,那就请再次注意说“我现在要”是什么感觉。这句话能指引你,同时表明你有力量和目的。这句话表明你相信自己所说的话,并且会找到行动的方式。你已经对自己做了承诺,即要让自己为自己骄傲。这句话表明,即使有障碍你也会找到完成的方法。它意味着即使困难突然出现,你也会找到坚持目标的方式。

Once you find a plan of action that seems doable, forget trying to do it. To try to do something is to not do it. Instead, declare whole-heartedly, "I am now achieving this!"

你一旦找到可行的行动计划,就不要说试着去做。是这去做就是不做。相反,你要全身心地向自己宣告:“我现在要完成这件事!”

Make your success inevitable.

让自己的成功成为必然。
