  走自己的路 尼尔•西蒙 陈采霞译

  Don’t listen to those who say “It’s not done that way.” Maybe it’s not, but maybe you will.


  Don’t listen to those who say “You’re taking too big a chance.” Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine Floor,and it would surely be rubbed out by today.


  Most importantly, don’t listen When the little voice of fear inside of your ear its ugly head and says,”They’re all smarter than you out there. They’re more talented,They’re taller, blonder, prettier, luckier and have connections……”I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests you,Not to the exclusion of love,sensitivity, and cooperation with others,But with the strength of conviction That you can move others by your own efforts,And do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live,The chances are you’ll be a person worthy of your own respect.



  TODAY IS A NEW DAY Donna Levine

  今天是新的一天 唐那•莱文 陈采霞译

  Your tomorrows are as bright as you want to make them.


  There is no reason to carry the darkness of the past with you into today.


  Today is a wonderful new experience,full of every possibility to make your life exactly what you want it to be.


  Today is the beginning of new happiness,new directions and new relationships.


  Today is the day to remind yourself that you posses the power and strength you need to bring contentment(满足),love and joy into your life.


  Today is the day to understand yourself and to give yourself the love and the patience that you need.


  Today is the day to move forward towards your bright tomorrow.



  Live in the present moment


  To a large degree,the measure of our peace of mind is determined by how much we are able to live in the present moment.Irrespective of what happened yesterday or last year,and what may or may not happen tomorrow,the present moment is where you are --always.


  Without question,many of us have mastered the neurotic art of spending much of our lives worrying about a variety of things --all at once.We allow past problems and future concerns to dominate our present moments,so much so that we end up anxious,frustrated,depressed,and hopeless.


  On the flip side,we also postpone our gratification,our stated priorities,and our happiness,often convincing ourselves that ‘someday’ will be better than today.Unfortunately,the same mental dynamics that tell us to look toward the future will only repeat themselves so that "someday " never actually arrives.


  John Lennon once said,‘Life is what’s happening while we’re busy making other plans.’When we’re busy making ‘other plans’,our children are busy growing up,the people we love are moving away and dying,our bodies are getting out of shape,and our dreams are slipping away.In short,we miss out on life.


  Many people live as if life were a dress rehearsal5 for some later date.It isn’t.In fact,no one has a guarantee that he or she will be here tomorrow.Now is the only time we have,and the only time that we have any control over.When our attention is in the present moment,we push fear from our minds.Fear is the concern over events that might happen in the future--we won’ t have enough money,our children will get into trouble,we will get old and die,whatever.


  To combat fear,the best strategy6) is to learn to bring your attention back to the present.Mark Twain said,‘I have been through some terrible things in my life,some of which actually happened.I don’t think I can say it any better.Practice keeping your attention on the here and now.Your efforts will pay great dividends7).
