[日期:01-20] 来源:  作者: [字体: ]

6. Get to know yourself. 了解你自己。
When going into battle, the wisest general learns to know his enemy very, very well. You can't defeat the enemy without knowing him. And when you're trying to overcome a negative self-image and replace it with self-confidence, your enemy is yourself. Get to know yourself well. Start listening to your thoughts. Start writing a journal about yourself, and about the thoughts you have about yourself, and analyzing why you have such negative thoughts. And then think about the good things about yourself, the things you can do well, the things you like. Start thinking about your limitations, and whether they're real limitations or just ones you've allowed to be placed there, artificially. Dig deep within yourself, and you'll come out (eventually) with even greater self-confidence.
在要打仗前,最聪明的将军会将敌人了解得一清二楚。如果你不了解你的敌人,你是无法战胜它的。当你试图战胜消极的个人形象,变得自信些话,你的敌人就是你自己。好好了解你知道,开始聆听你的想法,开始编写关于自己和自己想法的日志,分析你产生这些消极的想法。然后想想关于自己的好的方面,那些你可以做得很好的并且喜欢的事情。开始想想什么你的局限性,并弄清楚是否是真的局限了你,还仅仅是你允许摆放在那里虚假障碍。深深的挖掘自己的想法,最终你会更加自信。

7. Act positive. 积极行动。
More than just thinking positive, you have to put it into action. Action, actually, is the key to developing self-confidence. It's one thing to learn to think positive, but when you start acting on it, you change yourself, one action at a time. You are what you do, and so if you change what you do, you change what you are. Act in a positive way, take action instead of telling yourself you can't, be positive. Talk to people in a positive way, put energy into your actions. You'll soon start to notice a difference.
除了要积极思考,你还要付诸行动,事实上,这是发展个人自信的关键。积极思考是一回事,当你开始行动时,你又改变了,所以一次做好一件事情。你所做事情决定了你,当你改变你所做时,你就改变了你自己。用积极方式行动,采取措施而不是仅仅告诉自己你不行,积极一些。用积极的方式与人交谈,精力充沛的行动。要不了多久,你就会发现自己的改变。

8. Be kind and generous. 友好且慷慨。
Oh, so corny. If this is too corny for you, move on. But for the rest of you, know that being kind to others, and generous with yourself and your time and what you have, is a tremendous way to improve your self-image. You act in accordance with the Golden Rule, and you start to feel good about yourself, and to think that you are a good person. It does wonders for your self-confidence, believe me.
噢,太老土了。如果这对你来说太老土的话,继续前进。但你应该知道,对别人友好,慷慨于你自己、你的时间和你所拥有的,是改善你自我形象的非常好的方法。你遵从黄金准则行事,你将自我感觉良好,认为自己是个很好的人。相信我,它会对你的自信产生奇迹般的效果的。

One important key to success is self-confidence. A key to self-confidence is preparation. - Arthur Ashe
成功的关键是自信,自信的关键是有所准备。——阿瑟·阿什


9. Get prepared. 时刻准备好。
It's hard to be confident in yourself if you don't think you'll do well at something. Beat that feeling by preparing yourself as much as possible. Think about taking an exam: if you haven't studied, you won't have much confidence in your abilities to do well on the exam. But if you studied your butt off, you're prepared, and you'll be much more confident. Now think of life as your exam, and prepare yourself.
如果你不知道你会做好某件事,那么自信会很困难。尽可能把自己准备好,来击退不自信的想法。想想正在考试:如果你没有学习,你会不相信自己有能力考好试。但如果你学好了,准备好了,你就会有信心多了。现在,你把生命当作考试,准备好你自己。

10. Know your principles and live them. 明白自己的原则,并实践它们。
What are the principles upon which your life is built? If you don't know, you will have trouble, because your life will feel directionless. For myself, I try to live the Golden Rule (and fail often). This is my key principle, and I try to live my life in accordance with it. I have others, but they are mostly in some way related to this rule (the major exception being to “Live my Passion”). Think about your principles … you might have them but perhaps you haven't given them much thought. Now think about whether you actually live these principles, or if you just believe in them but don't act on them.
你的生活是建立在怎样的原则之上的?如果你不知道,就会比较麻烦,因为你的生将活毫无方向感而言。对于我自己,我一直遵从黄金准则(常常失败)。它是我最基本的原则,我试图遵从黄金准则来生活。我也有其它的原则,但大部分都和黄金准则有关的(“充满激情的生活”例外)。多想想你的原则……你可能有这些原则,但很少去思考它们。现在想想你是否遵守这些原则,还是仅仅相信它们,却很少采取行动。
