提示:1分钟后才是重点!

视频开头,一位校长正慷慨激昂地给中学生们讲“人生须知”,认真地为大家做着规划。

再过两年,你们就会完成A Level的学业;

再过三年,你们就会去自己想去的国家,上自己想上的大学;

再过五年,你们会步入职业生涯,

在座的很多同学,会进入全球顶尖公司工作;

然后你们会结婚,买房;

十年之后,你的人生就会安定下来。

十五年后,你就30岁了,你的人生轨迹也会就此定型。

校长就这样有条不紊地用一分钟总结了人的一生。这时,沉默的听众中举起了一只手。

一名小哥走到台前,自信满满地说:

“I’m sorry Mr. Headmaster, let me tell you why that approach may fail you.”

“不好意思,校长,我想告诉你为什么你的这些话是错的。”

I know people who never went to university, but found what they love at 18.

有的人没有上过大学,却在18岁就找到了他们热爱的事;

I know people who found a job straight out of college making decent money, but hate what they do.

I know people who took gap years and found their purpose.

有的人毕业后选择了间隔年,并找到了自我。

……

So my point is everything in life happens according to our time, our clock.

我想说的是,人生中每一件事都取决于我们自己的时间、自己的节奏。

You may look at some of your friends and think that they’re ahead of you, maybe some of them you feel are behind, but everything happens at their own pace.

你身边有些朋友或许遥遥领先于你,有些朋友也许落后于你,但凡事都有它自己的节奏。

They have their own time and clock and so do you.

他们有他们的节奏,你有你自己的。

Be patient.

耐心一点。

Don't let anyone rush you with their timelines.

不要让任何人用他们的标准来扰乱你的时间表。

“Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that’s counted truly counts.”

并非所有重要的东西,都能计算得清楚。也并非每一件计算得清楚的东西,就都有意义。

And this is the most important thing, I want you to be able to create meaningful, purposeful, fulfilling lives for yourselves, and learn how to use that to make an impact and a difference in the lives of others.

这,才是最重要的事。我希望你们能创造属于自己的、有意义和有成就感的人生,并学会用这些去影响并点亮其他人的生活。

That, will be true success.

这,才是真正的成功。

这个世界上有多少人,就会有多少种不同的人生。不妨坦然一点,耐心一点。这并不是给自己找借口,而是少一些焦虑,掌握好自己的步调。

你的人生,是属于自己的。只要你开始努力,一切都不算晚。
