1. Don’t make excuses

不要找借口

Sometimes you might find yourself in the midst of an unfair situation. In such a situation, it’s easy to make excuses and most people do. But winners are different. They don’t make excuses or blame the situation. Instead, they focus on what they can do to get the most out of it.

有时候你会发现自己受到不公正待遇。在这种情况下,一般都会很容易找到借口而且大多数人也是这么做的。但是成功者不一样。他们不会寻找理由或责怪形势。相反,他们会集中精力在糟糕的环境下获得最好结果。

2. Be comfortable being uncomfortable

对挑战随遇而安

Like it or not, growing in life often means moving out of your comfort zone. Why? Because in order to grow you need to expand your personal capacity and that requires you to take on new challenges. For that reason, you need to be comfortable being uncomfortable. Only then can you do the things that are necessary for your personal growth.

无论喜不喜欢,获得成长经常需要你走出舒适区。为什么呢?因为成长需要你拓宽潜在能力,那就意味着要承担新挑战。因为这样,你需要对挑战随遇而安,只有这样才能让你完成提升能力的事。

3. Have a strong desire to perform and excel

尽全力表现,追求卓越

For the winners, simply meeting the standard is not enough. Their goal is exceptional performance. Whatever it is you are doing, strive to become the best that you can be.

对成功者来说,达到标准并不够。他们的目标是有出类拔萃的表现。不管你在做什么,都努力发挥到最好。

4. Focus; one step at a time

专一;一次一步

To get things done, you need focus. But it’s difficult to do that if you look at the whole thing. So you should instead focus on just the current small step that you are in.

完成事情需要专心。但是当你纵观全局时往往很难做到这一点。所以你应该只关注手头上正在做的事情。

5. Don’t dwell on past mistakes

不要沉浸在过去的错误中

Winners make mistakes just like other people, but what makes them different is their attitude toward mistakes. They don’t dwell on them nor let them hinder their actions. Instead, they learn their lessons, block the negative thoughts, and move on.

成功者也和其他人一样犯错误,但对待错误的态度和他们不同。他们不会迷失其中或让错误阻碍他们的行动。相反的是,他们从错误中学习,排除消极想法,并继续向前。

6. Know your window of opportunity

审时度势,认清机会

Whatever it is you are trying to accomplish, you should be aware of its window of opportunity. Something that looks promising today might become worthless a few months from now. By knowing the window of opportunity, you   can use your resources wisely.

不管你想达成什么目标,你应该认清机会在哪里。今天看上去有前途的事情几个月后或许一文不值。当知道机会在哪里时,你可以更明智的利用资源。

7. Adapt

适应环境

The world is changing and changing fast. So if you want to thrive, you must be able to adapt. Some people insist on doing things the old way, but winners know that they need to change. They are willing to adopt a new way of doing things.

世界正在飞速变化,所以如果你想闯出一片天,你要学会适应环境。有些人坚持用旧方法处理事物,但是成功者知道他们需要改变。他们会用新方法做事。

8. Be humble

谦虚

Many people want to take credit for themselves, but winners know that they can’t achieve things by themselves. They also realize that there are others out there who can do what they do. So instead of bragging about their achievements, they stay humble.

很多人想往自己脸上贴金,但是成功者知道他们只靠自己是完不成事情的。他们明白很多人也能胜任他们的工作,所以会很谦虚,而不是夸耀他们的成就。

9. Master throttle control

把握事情节奏

Winners know when to wait and when to act. When they need to wait, they wait patiently. When they need to act, they act decisively. They know how to read the situation.

成功者知道何时等待和行动。当需要等时机时,他们会耐心等待。当需要行动时,他们毫不犹豫。他们知道如何判断时机好坏。

10. Prepare for contingencies  准备好应对偶发事件

Winners prepare themselves for bad situations. They know that things could go wrong so they prepare themselves beforehand. Do you have a plan B for your career? Have you built an emergency fund? Good preparation helps you recover quickly when things go wrong.

成功者会为坏情况做打算。他们知道事情可能会变糟糕,所以会提前准备。你对自己的职业生涯有备选计划吗?你有紧急调用资金吗?充分的准备会帮助你在不利的情况下迅速恢复元气。(转贴)
