从16岁孩子身上学到如何成功

How To Become Successful - What I Learned From A 16 Year Old Kid

这里是《激励胶囊》
Improvement Pill here.
几个月前 我参加了一场企业家的会议
A couple of months ago I was at a conference for entrepreneurs,
而 Caleb Maddix 的父亲在台上发表了演讲
and the father of Caleb Maddix gave a speech on stage.
我当时并不知道 Caleb 是谁
Now I didn’t know who Caleb was at the time,
我想大多数人应该也不认识他
and I’m assuming most of you don’t either
这里就简单介绍一下
so I’ll give you a quick rundown.
Caleb Maddix 于2001年出生
Caleb Maddix was born in 2001
16岁时就赚到了第一个一百万美元
and made his first million at the age of 16.
但是他的创业之路
He actually started his journey as an entrepreneur
其实早在他12岁的时候就开始了
much earlier than that, at the age of 12,
当时他出版了畅销书《儿童成功之道》
when he published the best-selling book, “Keys to Success for Kids”
他已和一些最著名的自我提升传奇人物结为朋友
He’s pals with some of the most well known self-improvement legends,
比如 东尼·罗宾斯 阿诺·施瓦辛格 加里·维伊
like Tony Robbins, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Gary V, just to name a few.
甚至有一个视频显示 他才14岁的时候
and there’s even a video of him closing a $10,000 deal
就在电话上谈成了一笔价值一万美元的交易
on the phone when he was just 14.
这些成就让我非常好奇
So just hearing all of this made me very curious.
这个孩子为什么这么年轻就这么成功呢?
How is it that this kid was able to reach such high levels of success at such a young age?
说真的 我12岁的时候
I mean seriously, when I was 12,
还是会一放学就呆在公园玩鬼捉人
I was still hanging out in the park playing tag after school.
当时我并没去考虑以后的事业
Back then, I never thought about my career,
也没去想想以后要干什么
or what I should be doing with my life.
我并不是在说享受童年有什么不好
Not to say that there’s anything wrong with enjoying one’s childhood,
但这件事让我深思 Caleb Maddix 为什么这么成功呢?
but it really makes you wonder: how did Caleb Maddix become so successful?
他的父亲 Matt Maddix 在台上讲的就是这个
And that’s exactly what his father Matt Maddix talked about on stage.
Matt 是一位单身父亲
Now Matt is a single father.
他和 Caleb 的母亲在 Caleb 还小的时候就离异了
He and Caleb’s mother had some sort of falling-out early on in Caleb’s childhood,
因此他被迫独自把 Caleb 带大
so he was forced to raise Caleb all on his own,
这是一件非常艰难的事情
which is an extremely hard thing to do,
因为照顾孩子是要花很多时间的
because, well, kids take up a lot of time.
你得跟他们玩 不能让他们闲着
You have to entertain them and keep them busy
要不然他们就会发疯
or else they go crazy.
问题是 Matt 是一名公共演讲者
The problem was, Matt was a public speaker.
他的工作需要他前往世界各地上台演讲
His job involved traveling around the world giving speeches on stage,
虽然 Matt 会把 Caleb 带在身边
and although he would bring Caleb along with him,
但他工作时还是不能让 Caleb 闲着
he still had to keep Caleb busy while he was working
于是 Matt 决定
so here’s what Matt decided to do:
在 Caleb 只有6岁的时候告诉他
when Caleb was only six years old Matt told him
如果他能读完杰克·坎菲尔德的《成功的原则》
that if he could finish reading “The Success Principles” by Jack Canfield,
这本书厚达500页
which is a 500 page book,
他就会得到20美元
he would get $20.
对一个6岁小孩来说 这是好大的一笔钱
That’s a lot of money for a six-year-old.
果不其然 Caleb 受到了巨大的鼓舞
So needless to say, Caleb was extremely motivated
于是他只花了几周时间把这本书读完了
and he finished the book in only a couple of weeks.
Matt 决定延续这一传统
Matt decided to keep this tradition,
儿子每读完一本自我提升的书Matt 就会给儿子20美元
and continued to offer $20 for every self-improvement book his son read.
正是这一动作 让 Caleb 年纪轻轻
and it’s this one action that caused Caleb to reach
就取得了他现有的成功
the levels of success he now has at such a young age.
我们在生活中有多成功
See, the amount of success we have in life
与我们的老师的品质有直接的关系
is directly correlated with the quality of teachers you learn from,
因为理论上说
because if you think about it in theory,
帮助你在生活上获得成功 是你的老师的工作
it’s your teachers’ job to help you succeed in life.
这不就是上学的目的吗?
That’s kind of the point of going to school, right?
我们之所以学英文 数学 历史等科目
That’s why we learn things like English and math and history,
是因为这些知识对你有帮助
because this stuff is supposed to help you.
但重点是 你最后的成功
But the thing is, it’s the quality of your teachers
取决于你的老师的品质
that ultimately determines how successful you become.
如果你的老师都是刚好拥有教育学位的平凡人
if you’re learning from average Joe Shmoes who just happen to get teaching degrees,
而且教学案例大多取自教科书 而非自己的人生经历
the majority of which teach from a textbook, not from their personal experience,
你也只会学会如何获取平凡人的成功
all you’re gonna learn is how to be as successful as just another Joe Shmoe on the street.
如果你想超越别人
If you want to outperform others,
如果你想比一般人更健康 更富有 更快乐
if you want to be healthier, wealthier, happier than the average person
你就要向这些领域的世界级专家学习
you need to learn from the teachers who are known worldwide as experts in these areas,
因为他们比大多数人更有效地办事
who know how to do things better than most other people.
不要只向一般的学校老师或教授学习
You should not focus on learning from your average school teacher or professor,
因为大多时候
because for the most part,
他们只能教你怎样交出一般的表现
all they’re gonna teach you is how to perform at an average level
如果你向一般人学习 你就会表现平平
Learn from the average, and you will become average.
如果你向成功人士学习 你就会成功
Learn from the successful, and you will become successful.
你可以通过各种方式向成功人士学习
Now you can learn from the successful in a variety of ways.
你可以观看他们的视频 收听他们的播客
You can watch their videos, listen to their podcast,
但我个人认为 阅读他们的书 才是学习的最佳方法
but personally I think the best way to learn is by reading their books,
更具体地说 你要收听他们的有声书
more specifically, by listening to their audiobooks,
为你介绍本视频的赞助商 Audible
