Life is all about choices

更新时间:2012-06-16    来源/发布:www.en369.cn    作者/编辑:英语作文网

迈克尔总是乐呵呵的,你总能听到他说些积极上进的话。他似乎生来就积极进取。他这样告诉他的员工:“每天早晨醒来,我对自己说,迈克尔,今天你有两种选择,选择心情愉快,选择心情恶劣,我选择心情愉快;有不愉快的事情发生,选择成为一个牺牲品,或是选择从中吸取教训,我选择吸取教训。”

迈克尔从60英尺的大楼上摔下,却活了下来,当有人问及他当时的想法,他是这样回答的:“我告诉我的手术医生,‘我选择活着,我愿意做任何手术。’”

选择接受生活的积极面也许是人生中最为明智的选择,其实,每个人都有机会充实、健康的活着,关键取决于你的人生态度。

Michael is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, "If I were any better, I‘d be twins!“ He was a natural motivator.

迈克尔是那种你真想恨一恨的家伙,他总是乐呵呵的,总是说些积极上进的话。如果有人问他近况如何,他会这样回答:“如果我还能再好,我就成双胞胎了!”他生来就会让人积极进取。

If an employee was having a bad day, Michael was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation. Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to Michael and asked him, "I don' t get it. You can' t be positive all the time. How do you do it?"

如果哪位雇员有天过得很糟糕,迈克尔会告诉他如何看待问题的积极一面。他的这种方式着实让我好奇,所以有一天我找到迈克尔问:“我真弄不明白。你怎么能总是那样积极乐观?你是如何做到这一点的?”

Michael replied, each morning I wake up and say to myself 'Mike, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be in a bad mood.' I choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it. Every time someone comes to me complaining I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life."

迈克尔回答说,“每天早晨醒来时我对自己说,‘迈克,今天你有两种选择。你可以选择心情愉快,你也可以选择心情恶劣。’我选择心情愉快。每次什么不愉快的事情发生时,我可以选择成为一个牺牲品,也可以选择从中吸取教训。我选择从中吸取教训。每次有什么人找我来抱怨,我可以选择接受他们的抱怨,也可以选择向他指出生活的积极面。我选择指出生活的积极面。”

"Yeah, right. It isn't that easy." I protested.

“是的,不错。可并不那么容易呀。”我表示异议。

"Yes it is, " Michael said. "Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line is: It's your choice how you live life. " I reflected on what Michael said.

“其实很容易,”迈克尔说。“生活就是选择。从每一事物剔除一切枝节后剩下的都是一种选择。你选择如何应付生活中的种种情形。你选择他人会怎样影响你的情绪。你选择是心情愉快还是心情恶劣。说到底:如何生活是你自己的选择。”我琢磨着迈克尔的这席话。
