时间:2011-03-06 10:32:17  来源:  作者:

托马斯.爱迪生是一个非常成功的发明家、科学家及商人,他的发明显著地影响了这个世界。诸如留声机、电影摄影机、和每日持久耐用的电灯泡等发明都是爱迪生工作的成果。
Called "The Wizard of Menlo Park" by a newspaper reporter, he was one of the first inventors to mass produce his inventions and is therefore often given credit for creating the first industrial research laboratory.
他被一名报刊记者称作“门洛帕克的鬼才”,他是第一批大量生产自己的发明成果的发明家之一,因而他常常被归功于创造了第一个工业研究实验室。
Edison is considered one of the most prolific inventors in history, holding 1,093 U.S. patents in his name, as well as many patents in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany.
爱迪生被认为是历史上最多产的发明家之一,他拥有用他的名字命名的1093项美国专利,还拥有很多在英国、法国、和德国的专利。
Today I want to talk about seven amazing lessons we can learn from “The Wizard of Menlo Park.”
今天我想谈谈我们可以从“门洛帕克的鬼才”身上学习到的7个令人惊叹的经验。
7 Amazing Success Lessons from Thomas Edison:
来自托马斯.爱迪生的7个令人惊叹的成功经验:
Impossibility
不可能之事
“Nearly every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That's not the place to become discouraged."
“几乎每个产生想法的人会逐步发现想法的似乎不可能之处,然后他就泄气了。但这不是开始泄气的地方。”
Roadblocks are sign-posts letting you know that success is just around the corner. Roadblocks are there to keep the uncommitted out. Roadblocks qualify you for success. Don’t get discouraged when things seem impossible, it’s darkest just before dawn.
路障是让你知道成功就在这个角落附近的路标。路障存在于那儿是为了将不承担责任者们挡在门外。路障使你具备成功的资格。不要在事情似乎不可能的时候泄气,那仅仅是黎明前的黑暗。
Perspiration
汗水
“Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.”
“天才是一分灵感加上九十九分的汗水。”
Thomas Edison said, “The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity is because it goes around wearing overalls and it looks like hard work.” There is no success without hard work; success is something that is only earned after much labor. Success can only come to those who labor for it, it is through labor that you become a valuable person, and your value attracts success.
托马斯.爱迪生说过:“许多人没发现机会的原因是机会总穿着工装裤四处走动、看上去象是艰辛的工作。”没有一样成功不通过艰辛的工作,成功是只有通过大量苦干后才能赚得的东西。成功只走向那些为之苦干的人,通过苦干你会成为一个有价值的人,而你的价值会吸引成功前来。
Capability
能力
“If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.”
“如果我们做了所有我们能做的事,按道理来讲我们将让自己大吃一惊。”
Most people are living considerably beneath their capabilities. They’ve never focused all of their efforts on a singular task, so they are completely unaware of the power they possess. Everyone is good at something, and if singular focus is given to that talent over the course of years, amazing things will be done. You are capable of astonishing yourself!
大多数人都生活在他们能力所能达到的水平线下面很远的地方。他们从没有将自己所有的努力都集中放在一个单个的任务上,所以他们完全不知道自己拥有的力量。每个人都有擅长的事情,因此如果集中精力在擅长的事情上,历经数年,就会干成令人惊讶的事。你有能力为自己感到惊奇!
Solitude
独处
“The best thinking has been done in solitude.”
“最好的思考是在独处中完成的。”
I have had my best thoughts locked away in a quiet room. Take time everyday to escape to a quiet room, if only for five minutes, to have your best thoughts. It’s hard to think about achieving the impossible, when you’re surrounded with people wanting to discuss only the possible. Escape to a quiet room today, and begin to see all your possibilities.
我是在将自己锁藏在安静的房间里获得最好的想法的。每天花点时间到一个安静的房间,哪怕只有5分钟,来获得你最好的想法。当你被那些只想讨论可能性的人包围时你很难去思考实现不可能之事。今天就逃遁到一个安静的房间,然后开始思考你所有的可能性。
Restlessness
不安定
“Restlessness is discontent and discontent is the first necessity of progress.”
“不安定是不满意,而不满意是进步的第一需要。”
Thomas Edison said, “Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.” As long as you’re perfectly content you can’t make progress. Nothing happens until you become discontented. If you can live with being 30 pounds over weight, if you’re content with that idea (not happy, but content), then you don’t have the power to change it. Remember, "discontent is the first necessity of progress."
