1. Make yourself a priority
优先考虑自己

 

If you don’t take care of yourself, nobody else will. You have to be number one. All things in your life stem from your happiness. Be someone who makes you happy!
如果自己不照顾好自己,别人就更指望不上了。把自己放在首位。生活中一切因你的快乐而存在。做个为自己的快乐而生的人吧!

 

2. Enjoy the small things
享受生活中的那些小事

 

Take walks more often. Stop and look at a babbling brook. Sit in an oversized chair at Barnes & Noble and read a GREat book. Observe an elderly couple holding hands. Life is made up of these small and seemingly insignificant things. They aren’t insignificant. Be sure to take the time to appreciate them.
多散步。因潺潺流水而驻足;闲坐在巴诺书店的大号椅子上读本好书;观察一对手挽手的老夫妇;生活就是一连串看似微不足道的琐事。它们虽不起眼,但一定要抽出时间去欣赏。

 

3. Get outside
留恋户外

 

Being outdoors is good for you. Soak in the sunlight, get those endorphins kicking, and enjoy the beauty that nature offers.
户外活动有益身心。沐浴阳光下,激活内啡肽,享受自然的美。

 

4. Be confident in who you are
对自己要有自信

 

Every person is unique and special in their own way. Understanding this early in life is critical. Be proud of who you are and don’t be afraid to let the world know it.
每个人都与众不同。年轻时,清楚这一点至关重要。为自己感到骄傲,而且要勇敢地让世界知道这一点。

 

5. Take calculated risks
承担可估算的风险

 

Life is a series of risks and rewards. Be smart with your risks and understand the consequences.
生活伴随着风险与回报。在风险面前保持警醒,并有勇气承担后果。

 

6. Focus on the present
关注当下

 

Worrying to a certain deGREe about your future is normal, but don’t overlook the power of being in the present moment. You can’t change the past, but you can control what you do right now.
对未来有些担心很正常,但不要忽视活在当下的能量。你无力改变过去,但现在却由你掌控。

 

7. Stop caring about what people think of you
别在意别人对你的看法

 

Fear of criticism is one of the most destructive fears known to humanity. It can debilitate you to the point paralysis. Learn early in life that it doesn’t matter what people think of you. It really doesn’t. And besides, people are too worried about what you think about them to care about you!
对人类来说,担心受指责是最具毁灭性的恐惧之一。它会使你脆弱得不堪一击。年轻时就要懂得,人们怎么看你无关紧要。的确如此。另外,人们过于担心你对他们的看法而无暇顾及你。

 

8. Remember that people are good at heart
记住人性本善

 

Being a lifelong cynic can and will make your life an uphill climb. Recognize that people are inherently good and you will embrace relationships in a far GREater capacity.
与愤世疾俗为伍,只会使生活艰难。承认人善的本性,你就会敞开胸怀,广交朋友。

 

9. Be a positive person
积极向上

 

Make being positive a habit early in life. Your success in life will come from your thoughts and your thoughts can be either negative or positive. Only you can control which you choose.
年轻时就要养成积极向上的习惯。生活成败取决于思想,而思想有积极和消极之分。只有你是自己思想的主宰。

 

10. Let go of negative influences
远离负面影响

 

Avoid bad situations, unhealthy relationships, and people who make your life worse. Letting go of a good friend who is going to drag you down is a difficult yet intelligent decision. Failure to do so can negatively affect where you end up in life.
避开困境、不健康的关系和那些搅扰你生活的人。对使你止步不前的好朋友说再见虽难却是明智之举。如果不忍割舍,那只会让你的生活变得一团糟。

 

11. Surround yourself with positive people
与积极向上的人为友

 

Jim Rohn said “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” And it’s completely true. If you want to be a success, hang around with successful people. If someone has what you want, you can do what they do, and get what they’ve got.
吉姆·雷恩说:“你最常接近的5个人的平均值就是你。” 这句话完全正确。如果你渴望成功,那就应多接触成功人士。如果某人拥有你希望得到的东西,你可以按照他们的做法,得到他们拥有的东西。

 

12. Worry less
少担心

 

Worrying about that big test is normal, as is worrying about that possible job promotion, but when you begin to worry excessively, it can become a real problem. Worrying can lead to stress and anxiety, which can become disorders and negatively affect all areas of your life.
担心重要的考试很正常,担心可能的工作升迁也是一样。但当你开始过分担心时,担心本身可能成为问题。担心可以产生压力,导致焦虑,而混乱接踵而来,你生活的方方面面将受到消极影响。

 

13. Learn from your past but don’t dwell on it
以史为鉴,但不要纠结于过去

 

Being caught up in your past can lead to stagnation and the inability to proGREss in your life. Understand that life is just a series of events and move on. You can change the future but you cannot alter your past decisions.
沉浸于过去让你停滞不前、无力进取。要知道,生活是一系列不断发展的事件。你可以改变未来,却不能对过去的决定做出改变。

 

14. Travel
旅行

 

Most of you want to travel the world, see new things, and meet new people. But statistics show that the average mother in the U.S. will start a family at age 25, meaning that your travel options will become quite limited for a number of years after you start having children. And even if you do tell yourself that you’re going to travel, most of you won’t. Don’t put it off. Get out there and see the places you desire most.
大多数人渴望周游世界,接触新事物,结交新朋友。但数据显示,美国妇女一般在25岁时开始做母亲,这意味着此后的数年之内,你的旅行机会相当受限。即使你不断告诉自己,你有出游的想法,但大多实现不了。不要犹豫,收拾行装,去欣赏你最心仪的美景吧。

 

15. Learn a new language
学门新语言

 

In this day and age, knowing a second (or third) language is no longer just a hobby, it can help you in your career. Being able to communicate with people from multiple cultures not only makes good business sense, but expands your personal growth.
当今时代,懂二种或三种语言不再是爱好,你的职业生活将因此受益。具备与多种文化交流的能力不仅能铸就你良好的商业意识,还是你个人成长的助力。
16. Overcome some of your biggest fears
消除一些盘踞内心的恐惧

 

Your fears will haunt you for your entire life if they aren’t dealt with. Do you really want to go through life being deathly afraid of flying? Do you want the fear of public speaking to control you? Of course not. Take these challenges head on and early on and overcome them.
如果听之任之,恐惧将萦绕你一生。你真得希望终其一生都怕飞翔怕得要死吗?你希望在大家面前讲话时总是诚惶诚恐吗?当然不。直面挑战,克服它们。

 

17. Experiment
经验

 

Life is chock full of experiences. Try new things. Get out there and fail often. Learn from your mistakes. You only get one chance at this life. Get as much in as you can.
生活中皆是经验。尝试新事物。大胆走出去,接受失败,从错误中学习。你只能活一次,尽量多尝试。

 

18. Appreciate your parents
感激父母

 

As children, we adore our parents. As teens, we ignore our parents. And in adulthood, we take them for granted. Knowing that they did the best possible job they could raising you will help you appreciate them. Make a phone call right now to tell them so.
孩提时,我们崇拜父母;青春年少时,我们忽视父母;成年后,我们认为他们做的一切都是应该的。他们尽最大的努力抚养你,懂得这一点将使你感激他们。马上拿起电话,告诉他们你的感激之情。

 

19. Stay close with the important people in your life
与你生活中的贵人保持密切联系

 

Most of you will lose contact with childhood friends, college buddies, and past coworkers. But chances are that you’ve made some GREat friends along the way. If you’ve found that you’ve lost touch with someone who was important to you, reach out to them and try to reconnect. People who you consider important are few and far between, so do your best to keep them in your life.
你们中的大多数会与儿时玩伴、大学好友和曾经的同事失去联系。但是一路走来,你可能已经交了一些不错的朋友。如果你发现,你与曾经对你很重要的人失去联系,找到他们,重要建立联系。被你贴上重要标签的人少之又少,所以尽量不要让他们淡出你的生活

 

20. Remember that you do not know it all
记住你不是万事通

 

It’s a given that teenagers believe they know it all, but as an adult it’s important to recognize how little you know. Make learning something new part of your daily routine. Started at an early age, you will be amazed at how much you can learn in a lifetime.
作为青少年,他们相信自己无事不知,但作为成人,你应该意识到你知之甚少。让学习成为你日常生活的不可分割的一部分。如果你开始得早,你将对一生中能学到如此之多感到吃惊。

 

21. Listen to your parents
倾听父母

 

As crazy as it may seem, they have much more life experience than you and do know what they are talking about. Take the time to listen to their stories. They have more wisdom than you believe.
虽看似不切实际,但他们的生活经验的确比你丰富得多,而且他们深知自己要表达的内容。抽出时间,倾听他们的故事,他们的智慧超乎你想象。

 

22. Face the bully
不甘示弱

 

Most of you have had a bully in one shape or another in your lifetime. Do not let your fear control you. The best way to handle any bully is to confront them. Most are cowards hiding behind their size and/or power. Confronting them will get their attention, and in many cases, their respect.
生活中,你们中很多人会遭遇这样或那样的恃强凌弱者。不要成为恐惧的俘虏。应对任何欺侮的最佳办法是面对它们。大多数人看似高大威猛,实际上,懦弱潜藏于他们的内心。勇敢面对不仅吸引他们的注意力,在许多情形下,还能赢得他们的尊重。

 

23. Give unconditionally
无私地给予

 

Understanding the sheer power of giving unconditionally can shape the course of your life. Learn this early.
懂得无私给予的强大力量可以改变你生活的历程,要尽早学会。

 

24. Working too much
为工作狂

 

Working yourself half to death throughout your 20s and 30s may seem like a GREat idea for rising up the corporate ladder, but remember that those are your golden years. Make time for the things you are most passionate about while you are healthy enough to do so.
二、三十岁时为升职拼死拼活的工作貌似好主意,但是,要切记这可是你的黄金时期。趁着身体健康,抽出时间做些自己最热衷的事情。

 

25. Develop good habits
养成好习惯

 

The outcome of your life will be based on the decisions you make. Making good decisions comes from having good habits. Educate yourself on how to start adopting positive ones and removing the negative ones.
生活的回报基于你作出的决定。养成良好的习惯,才会有明智之举。教会自己如何养成催人奋进的好习惯,如何摒弃不良习惯。

 

26. Find what you excel at and begin to master it
找到你的强项,为精通它而发奋

 

Spending years languishing in uncertainty is the fastest way to living an average life. Find where your strengths meet your passions and become GREat at them. Don’t be a jack of all trades. Be the master of a few.
在不确定中耗费数年苦思冥想是通向平庸生活的捷径。找到你既感兴趣又擅长的领域,苦心钻研。不做博而不精的人,只掌握几种技能。

 

27. Spend as much time with your children as possible
多陪孩子

 

If you lose your time with your children, you will never get it back. Embrace this time with all your heart. Being a parent is the single most important job on the planet.
如果缺了这一课,可没办法去弥补。珍惜与孩子共处的每一刻,做父母是地球最最重要的工作。

 

28. Learn to be grateful
学会感激

 

This is easier said than done, but being appreciative of what you have can make the difference between a life of wanting and a life of contentment.
说起来容易做起来难,但是,不满现状还是知足常乐取决于你是否心存感激。

 

29. Start a business
做自己的生意

 

Don’t spend your life only knowing what it’s like to be an employee. Start your own venture, whether it be mowing lawns or running Internet security, try your hand in business. Lessons in entrepreneurship cannot be learned in a classroom. Real world experience will prove invaluable.
不要一辈子只知道为别人打工。尝试经营自己的生意,不论修剪草坪还是经营互联网安全相关业务。课堂上学不到生意经,真实世界体验的价值不可估量。

 

30. Be crazy
疯狂

 

Well, not literally. Do something wild and adventurous. As you grow older, you will begin a career, and/or settle down and start a family and will be less inclined to let it all hang out. Be bold and daring. And have fun with it!
当然不是字面上的疯狂,是做些既疯狂且有风险的事情。随着年龄的增长,你将开始自己的职业生涯,然后安定下来,组建家庭,之后你将变得小心谨慎。所以,趁现在去做些胆大妄为的事情吧,祝玩得开心。

 

While it’s never too late to work on your personal growth, getting these things done early in your life can truly make the difference between a life lived on your terms or a life lived on someone else’s.
尽管个人发展可以随时起步,但自我发展早或晚会使你的生活大不相同,你喜欢自己做主的生活,还是仰人鼻息的日子呢?
