早上好 欢迎收看《信任国度》 我是埃文
-Good morning Believe Nation it’s Evan.
My one word is believe
and I believe in people more than they believe in themselves.
And my sincere hope is that
if you see in yourself what I see in you
you’ll be able to change the planet.
So to help you on your journey today’s message is
be open to the unknown.
Over to you Simon Sinek.

-Rarely are we instant experts.
You may have a particular gift
or affinity toward something,
but you’ll still get better.
You know people would pay me high compliments
when I started speaking
and then people who’ve seen me a year or two later
say that I’m even better.
And I feel it. – Why is that?
– Because you you you learn more you know.
I think that hubris is dangerous
I think to think that you’re an expert in anything
is a foolish pursuit.
You’re never you’re never as good as you could be.
There’s always room for improvement,
there’s always room to get better.
You know that doesn’t mean you have to listen to all of the advice,
just you know not necessarily does everybody know best.
But but to believe that you can be better
and to believe that you can offer more
is a constant pursuit.
You know I used to think being a public speaker
meant being poised and
presenting in a way that was compelling and speaking at the right pace.
And that’s that’s a part of it.
But but I have been taking more risks lately,
doing things that are very unstructured and very uncomfortable.
And I will now do like if I have an hour to speak
I’d rather speak for 20 minutes
and do 40 minutes worthy of questions.
And who knows how that’s going to go.
And that to me, is the best.
And so I’m a better speaker
because now I’m way more open to the unknown.
Where a few years ago that that would have scared me.
– One of the greatest skills I think it can master
is to learn to be comfortable and be uncomfortable.
To lean in on it to feel the excitement and energy from it
as opposed to just the fear and shrinking downness
is which is what a lot of people do.
A lot of people are super uncomfortable
when there’s a new strange scary situation happening
and you want to lean in on that so you can grow as a human
but also you can bring the most to your business.
A good habit you try to get into
is as soon as you think of a new idea,
as soon as you come up with something that you want to try,
you want to talk to that person,you want to launch this new business,
you want to create this new campaign.
Assuming you have that idea
find some small way to take immediate action on it.
One, you’re more likely to follow through,
you’re more likely to build momentum,
and to actually see some results coming from it.
But two what happens is,here’s what happens so often
there’s so many entrepreneurs and it’s so frustrating,
it’s so limiting for a lot of you guys.
You come up with an idea and you’re excited,
right like this could be a great new idea
I really want to try this thing out.
And then you add more layers and layers and layers
and this little tiny idea becomes this huge big project.
And as you scale up the project
and it’s exciting to think about
how you can make it this big thing
right if you want to launch a YouTube channel,
你先发了个视频 接着你想到 哇哦
it starts with one video and then you think wow,
I need to have my banner,
I need to have my production schedule.
I need to figure out what lights and what camera or microphone.
And you’d like to build up this huge project
that is very exciting but then the fear kicks in.
And then it’s like, well how do I go out
and accomplish all those things?
我需要一支队伍 我需要钱 我需要资源 我需要时间
I need a team, I need money, I need resources, I need time,
I need to plan, I need to plan, I need to plan.
And you’re stuck in this constant planning mode
and it becomes such as such a big idea
but then you never do anything about it.
Well, if you can cut that off sooner
and as soon as you get an idea
while it’s still little of something that you want to try
go ahead and do it.
Go and see how it works.
See if you enjoy it.
See if you want to do it again.
I keep thinking back to dating as an example
where if you’re about to meet somebody for the first time
if you’re already thinking long term,
考虑好了结婚 孩子 退休 还有葬礼
if you’re already thinking about the wedding, the kids, and retirement, and death.
Like you’re thinking all the way out there
you’re putting so much pressure
that you find out even going to say hi to this person
and you don’t even know if it’s ever going to work out.
Or just go out grab a coffee, see if you like them.
See if you want to go up for another coffee.
Right I think as soon as you get an idea
就去尝试 虽然它会令人不爽 感到恐惧
to just try it and it’s uncomfortable and it’s scary
but just try it in some small way.
I think about my Malaysia speech that I did a couple years ago
it was a meaningful speech for me
because the first time I introduced Your One Word
and Believe to an audience.
Maybe I did it to you guys first on YouTube
but I like to actually speak to audience.
And just before going on stage
I had a woman stop me at breakfast
and was talking about how she was being cyber bullied
and how it was really impacting her negatively
and she was thinking of shutting down all her social accounts.
And the impact that I had in her family
这个伤感的故事出自一位非常美丽 善良 有爱的女士
and just a really sad story from a really beautiful wonderful caring woman.
And I was about to get on stage about to go do my second speech
and I just thought of this idea like
wouldn’t it be great to involve her somehow?
Wouldn’t it be great to get it give her some recognition
and have the people in the audience support her.
And so I brought her up on stage
she had no idea what was happening
and I asked her you know
are you ok if I tell your story she said yes.
and I told her story
and then what I wanted people to do was while I was speaking
I had just my new friend here to the side of the stage
and I said, “Everybody what I want you guys to do is come up
and take a picture with her,
put hashtag I think with hashtag peace or hashtag love.”
“And anybody who tagged me in the picture takes a picture with her
and has hashtag peace or love,
I will give them.
I gave them one of my my guides,
one of my e-book download that I had.”
And while I was talking at the front
there was a huge line up.
And throughout the entire presentation
people were taking pictures with her
and they were laughing and they were smiling
and there were tears of joy and happiness
and it really made an impact on my new friend,
this woman that I had met,but also on everybody coming through
that this was something that was really important.
And it made the talk that much more valuable to everybody.
And it just happened spur the moment this was not a planned thing,
if she didn’t come and meet me at breakfast
and stop me and say hi and tell me her story
I wouldn’t have done that.
I would have just continued with my regularly planned speech.
And so I think it’s good to have a plan
but it’s good to make adjustments,
it’s good to lean into the unknown.
I had this idea and instead of making it this big thing
that I could save for the next time I do a speech,
or the next time this thing happens
I’m going to do something right now.
And it may work and it may not work out
but I’m going to test it.
And that one worked out really well.
But sometimes it doesn’t work out.
Right. Sometimes you fall on your face.
Sometimes you think you do that jump
and you can’t make it and you fall down.
That’s going to happen too
but I try to embrace the approach if I would rather know
and fail, than not know.
Than just live in my head
because I would hate to think that
here is this woman who I could have helped
who could have made a meaningful contribution to
and all these people in a room that I could have helped them in a meaningful contribution to
but I was too scared to do it,
I was too scared of releasing an imperfect plan and so I did nothing.
And that’s too often what we do in our business and in our lives.
We had this idea
and we’re too afraid to release an imperfect plan
and we do nothing as a result.
There will never be a perfect plan.
You can think up a plan all you want
but as soon as you start to get out there into the world and test it
your plan will change.
Every single successful business, the plan they started with
is not the plan that ultimately helped them grow.
计划还是那个计划 但是得有所改变 有所适应
It was part of their plan, but they had to change it, had to adapt.
And so too many of us are just stuck in our heads
and we don’t take enough action.
And so I strongly encouraged you the next time you feel uncomfortable,
the next time you’re feeling nervous about something,
the next time you get that little queasy feeling
you know the, I don’t know if I should do that or not,
just do it.
迎面而上吧 宁愿去了解 去失败
Embrace the approach you would rather know
and have it fail than live the rest of your life with regrets
because you were too afraid to take some kind of action.
So the question today is I’m curious
what is something that you are working on
that you’re afraid to release?
That is imperfect but now you’re going to go out
and push it and let people know about it
at least in a small way.
I’m curious, what is that project.
Leave it down the comments below
I’m really curious to find out.
And if you leave a comment within the first couple hours
this video is going to live you have a chance to win one of two daily prizes.
I also want to give a quick shout out to Chris and Juliana.
Thank you guys so much for picking up a copy of my book Your One Word
and taking that great picture in your car with it.
I hope you enjoyed the read and I really appreciate the support.
Thank you guys again for watching.
I believe in you.
I hope you continue to believe in yourself
and whatever your one word is.
Much love and I’ll see you again tomorrow morning
for another shot of espresso.
♫ I wake up every morning
♫ Enspresso keep me goin’
♫ Every morning
– Do something new.
You know you’re gonna make it a very constant comfort zone.
That’s what we all do we get to a certain age.
You will stay at the comforts,
some of the recliners watching television day in and out there.
And we get certain age we receptive I say,
why I sit around watching television
through the rest of my life that I’ve done it all.
Sitting on my laurels it reads.
其实不值得 我想说 生命是如此短暂
It’s not worth it I mean life is so short and such glorious
images in the world and such horror as well.
But I want to see it all
so I’ve moved out of my comfort zone.
It’s some essential for me otherwise I may as well die.
So I’ve done it I’ve broken every rule in the book
and not out of malice or any
telling anyone that, I’ll show you. I did it for to show myself.
I’ve showed myself. I looked in mirror,
I thought, I’ll show you one day.
I’ve done something completely. And I wrote the music,
and I feel limitless.
– You want to grab me you’ve got like the nomination for an Oscar.
美国演员工会奖 还有金球奖 你获了很多奖
You’ve won a SAG award, you won the Golden Globe. You’ve won so much.
Like how’d you keep going?
Like what inspires you?
– Honestly I pray always stay open.
You know if you always learn something new
you can be inspired.
But I don’t just kind of sit and look at the past like I did this.
我不会去想我的成就 除非别人 比如你提醒了我
Until people like you remind me of a lot of that stuff
I don’t really you know think about it in the same way
because I see the new things on the horizon
and I don’t feel like I have to do the same thing over and over.
I think if you’re a creative person
then you kind of just have to follow your vibe.
If an opportunity is there for something interesting
that you know sparks me and you,
then you can go for it.
And I was just kind of never one of those people that felt like I couldn’t do it.
I’ve got the right people around me,
I believe to do anything I want to do.
– Well you are doing kind of master of you’ve done.
– I don’t master at all but I persevered through it all
and it gives me a chance to find the next thing to work on.
So I’m a fighter you know I
I know how to take them as much as I’ve been give them.
– So when I for some reason felt that I had
this small bit of confidence to audition
for the drill team.
And I made sure I was auditioning for captain
not just to be a part of the team
which is not that was not something that I normally did in my life.
Like step outside of my comfort zone and do something
where I was being put out in front of people.
But I auditioned and they made me captain
and the drill team coach Elizabeth Camtine
saw something in me immediately.
She saw an ability that I had my body proportions
and she thought, you are a ballerina
and I want to introduce you to someone
who’s giving a free ballet class
at the Boys and Girls Club that she already attends.
So I was not at all interested in ballet.
But after about a week of hiding out
in the back of this ballet class on the basketball court
the teacher Cynthia Bradley pulled me on and
I took my first class in socks and
shorts and a T-shirt.
