I don’t know what you are facing,
but here is what I do know.
You’ve got something special.
You’ve got greatness in you,
and I know it’s possible
that you can live your dream.
The things that are easy to do
are also easy not to do
That’s the difference between dream success and failure
You should be feeling like there’s absolutely nothing you can’t accomplish.
Nothing. I don’t test,
I don’t care what it is.
Whatever you’re going through in your life,
you should feel like you could beat it, alright
The day you become convinced
then you stop devaluing yourself.
The day you stop growing,
the day you stop getting better
is the day you die,
is the day the person who is trying to catch you
will get you.
If you are not where you wanna be
is because you are not who you need to be right now.
and dreaming and hoping is not going to change your situation.
I’m not saying there is anything wrong with dreaming. we’ll talk about that.
你知道 我也不是说不能想象 你应该有想象力
I’m not talking about ,you know, not having a vision. You have a vision.
but listen to me
you are where you want because of who you are.
and if you are going to get somewhere else
you gonna have to change.
You can be, you can have
you can do whatever you want
but you will have to free yourself
and stop being a victim
waiting for somebody else to open up an opportunity for you
to open up that door for you, to do for you.
If you don’t do for yourself, I apologize,
I apologize. I wish they would, man.
I can tell you what they to tell you
Your boss would say they’re sorry.
Whoever owns you an apology but trust me
you might die and never get one. If you’re waiting on that
you might be in a hostage situation for the rest of your life.
Your dream will not become a reality.
until you shift from not important to somewhat important
to very important to an emergency.
You hear me. Some of you have been knocked out by life.
当你如梦初醒 发现自己遍体鳞伤时你才会说 “原来它伤害了我！”
And you got up and saw the blood, you’re like: “oh, he hit me!”
sometimes in life you have to hit back.
It’s not always gonna be easy. They’re not going to give it to you.
they are not going to give you success.
they are not going to put it on the plate but if you want the world forward,
如果你想要感受到自己的汗水 鲜血 和泪水
if you want to put the sweat the blood the tears
if you want it you earn it. They don’t give away.
they are never on sale.
If you want one you can buy it
if you’re willing to pay for it.
Some of you your success has messed you up.
You’re so successful now you sore.
Your success has not benefited you
You’ve not grown as a result of being successful.
You lost your bite,
you’re not hungry any more. Your success is damaging you.
Every time you come up to a challenge
you quit, you surrender
you give up, you give in.
Every single thing I go through, I remember I was homeless
and I draw from it.
Every single time I’m going through pain
I remember that I have gone through pain since I was a kid.
I draw from it. Recycle your pain.
Get something from it. You’re already in pain.
Use it Do something with it.
Allow it to take you to the next level.
Allow your pain to push you to greatness.
I challenge you. I challenge you.
I challenge you to be the best you could be.
Now, Mr.Schultz, my teacher gave me a promise
and I want to give you that promise now.
Here was the promise I got and I bring it to you
Here is what my teacher said
“if you will change
罗恩先生 ”他说 “如果你会改变
Mr.Rohn,” he said,” if you will change
every thing will change for you.
You don’t have to change the government
you don’t have to change prices
you don’t have to change taxes
get all that.”
He said that if you would change
every thing would change for you.
And the first thing you start changing is what
You start changing your mind.
You start changing how you think.
You start picking up new ideas and information
gather new knowledge, make better decisions
about what is valuable.
我要告诉你 如果你这么做 你的人生将会从此不同
and I’m telling you if you do that your whole life will change.
your health will change
your relationship with your family will change
your ability to cope with challenges will change.
我要告诉你 收入 升职 所有的一切都会改变
I’m telling you, income, promotion all of it will change.
If you will change, it’ll all change.
If you won’t change, it isn’t gonna change.
You can keep your fingers crossed if you want to
and hope they’ll straighten it out.
You can wish for the wind not to blow quite severe
but I’m telling you
wishing for the wind to change in your favour
we call naive at this.
Don’t do this any longer: wish for a better wind.
The key is to wish for the wisdom to set
a better sail.
You utilise whatever wind to blow
to take you wherever you want to go.
That is the philosophy I picked up at the age of 25
and it revolutionsed my whole life.
And here is what I found. I found it was easy.
Got a job this time.
My definition of easy
meaning something I could do.
I figure for some you can do is easy.
Now here’s the parentheses
parenthesea I worked hard at it.
I found something I could do, which was easy
but I worked hard at it.
I got up early and stayed up late
worked hard that six years.
But if what I did was easy, meaning it was something I could do
你会说 “罗恩先生 如果这件事很容易
you say,” well, Mr. Rohn if that was so easy
how come everybody else around you doing that six years
how come they didn’t get rich”Here’s why
It’s easy not to.
How else would you describe it? That’s it.
You say no no
for all the rest of them
it was hard for them and it was easy for you.
That’s not true
You couldn’t defeat me on that in front of these intelligent audience.
So you’ve got the choice here today wound up to easiness.
Easy to or what
easy not to.
I can give you an “one sentence” how I got great
from the time as a new one.
Here’s the one sentence
I did not neglect
to do the easy things I could do everyday for six years.
Underline. I did not neglect.
That’s the key.
I found something easy I could do that led to fortune
and I did not neglect to do it.
Major reason for not having everything you want in America
major reason for not having more what you want in America
更加健康 更多财富 更大权力
more health, more money, more power
more influence, more everything
major reason why you don’t get it
simple answer: neglect
Neglect and here’s the problem with neglect
It starts as an infection
and if you don’t take care of it
it becomes a disease.
And here’s what else is the problem
one neglect leads to another.
Neglect to do wise things with your money
you probably neglect to do wise things with your time.
Neglect to do wise things with your time
you probably neglect to do wise things with your business.
One leads to another leads to another.
Pretty soon neglect has you by the throat
emptying your purse, emptying your heart
emptying all of your chances
for equities and power the good things.
What if you should be walking around the block everyday for your good health
and you don’t.
I’m telling you, you’re on the wrong track.
You should do it. You could do it. You don’t do it
That’s called formula for disaster.
All you got to do is
let that and a few other things accumulate for six years
and now you’re driving what you don’t wanna drive
wearing what you don’t wanna wear
living where you don’t wanna live
doing what you don’t wanna do
maybe having become what you really didn’t wanna become.
I’m telling that’s it.
just neglect along, drift along and it’s got you by the throat.
It will take all your values
leave you with a just little bit of dust
and the summer wind and it’ll soon be gone.
I hope I said that well.
That’s it. It’s what I found myself at age twenty five
until my teacher came along and said
Mr.Rohn up till now you’ve messed up
Let’s see if we can clean that up, change it all.
I did change my life.
Not just the money
all the rest of the value that came pouring in
when I understood that it was me
It was me
So take the easier approach.
This stuff is easy to figure out.
Getting rich is easy
I teach the teenagers how to be rich by forty
thirty five if you’re extra bright.
The stuff is not difficult.
Greatness is about making things better.
Greatness is about getting better.
You know when we were kids Granny used to say
你要做得好 更好 最好
good, better, best
never let it rest until your good is better
and your better is best.
You know so for me greatness is about
no body knows their time is
no body knows what I’m capable of.
But I what I’m capable of: getting better every single day
Never settling. Never saying
” well I got a PhD so I’m finished.”
You know I’ve got a video or
a few videos I would buy or
most people have never done that. I’m doing good
I wrote three books. I’m good
不 不 你知道
no no, there you know
you know it at the end of the day
when you lay your head down to sleep.
You know when you’re giving your best.
You know when you’ve gotten better.
And greatness is challenging the today you
And the future you say,” you can get better.”
You’re grinding on money
grinding on Tuesday, griding on Wednesday
If you’re grinding six seven days a week
or spend a five or six years
Something’s gotta come out now of it.
And I think if we spend more time on
what’s my goal
you know, meaning what do I do to accomplish in this day
to live this life style
and you go after it
I’m not saying you shouldn’t have goal.
I just think that goals for people is too high on the priority list
and I think what should be on the priority list is
who want to be
so you can wake up on the next day
and you can grind it out.
I can do this. I can make this happen.
No matter how bad it is or how bad it gets
I’m going to make it.
Yes. Your dream is possible.
Say that to yourself everyday.
Feed your mind with words that you’re writing
words that you hear and words that you speak to yourself.
Feed your faith and your doubts will starve to death.
Say to yourself,” It’s possible
It’s possible. It’s possible.”
Even when you have no evidence to point to
say to yourself:” It’s possible.”
There is nothing as powerful as a make up mind.
It’s a struggle sometimes to do that
especially when you have people around you telling you that it’s not possible
that you can’t do it.
And they’re constantly pointing out
your failures of the past
constantly reminding you of all the things that you don’t have going for you.
I’m reminded of a story
of two little boys that were playing on the some ice during the winter.
And as they got further out on this ice
one fell through the thin ice.
And, and so the little fellow that was still on top of the ice
He was trying to save his little buddy
and he couldn’t reach him.
He was trying to pull him.
He could see him through the thin ice
as he got further away from him, struggling.
And he couldn’t reach him
and he was trying to break the ice.
He couldn’t do it. He looked around
and he saw tree in the distance and he ran.
And he got up on a tree.
And he pulled and broke down an enormous size of branch
and came back and savagely begin to beat that ice
and broke it and miraculously he saved his friend.
And when the paramedics came
and they were able to revive the little boy.
They were scratching their heads and trying to figure this out, said
“How could this little puny fellow
go up in a tree and break off a branch of his size
and then come back
and beat and break the ice
and save his friend?”
They thought it was just miraculous, it was baffling.
And an old guy who was there said
“I can tell you how he did it.”
那些人问道 “怎么做 他怎么做到的”
And they said,” How? How did he do it?”
Then he said,” There was no one here to tell him
that he couldn’t do it.”
Wow. What could you do
What could I do
What could all of us do
if we did not have the nay-sayers in our lives
that we believe naively like the little boy
that it was possible
What would you do
if failure was not on the table?
