四大错误遏制个人发展
    时间:2010-08-03  作者:  来源:网络论坛

  When trying to grow it's easy to stumblemore than once and scratch your knees on your way to success, happiness, expansion of consciousness and all that good stuff.

  在成长的过程中,为了获得成功、欢乐、意识的发展以及所有向往的美好事物,你往往很容易不止一次的跌倒,划伤膝盖。

  There is certainly some pits to watch out for and here's nine mistakes – in no particular order – that I'd say are very common.

  除此之外,我还要告诉你,必须当心那些坑洼,这就是我将要提到的九大遏制你个人发展的错误(不按特定的顺序),他们是极其常见的。

  I have certainly made a lot of them. More than once.

  就个人经验来讲,我个人已经犯过很多种上述错误,而且不止一次的犯同样的错误。

  If you can, try be observantof your own behaviour and to learn from my mistakes. While we perhaps learn best from our own mistakes there is no reason for you to at least waste a little less time that I and so many others before me have done.

  如果可以,请你仔细留意自己的行为,并从我的错误经历中总结出教训。这样,如果我们能够从自己的错误经历中去粗取精,那么,你就完全没有理由在我乃至其我之前的其他很多人都作过的事情上浪费一丁点儿的时间了。

  Now, let's go.

  那么现在,让我们开始吧。

  1. Thinking you already know everything.

  错误一:自以为已经无事不晓。

  This one is a big problem and can halt growth for a very long time. It's the mindset that says: “I know how the world works. I don't need that snake-oil salesman stuff to improve my life. They have nothing new to offer. Only desperate people need those books to get their life together. It's just common sense.”

  这一个很大的问题,它能很长时间阻止你的成长。这种思维模式是:我了解整个世界的运作,我不需要买骗人的万灵油来改善我的生活。他们说的总是千篇一律。只有无可救药的人才需要那些书籍来让生活继续。这样的事情都太平常不过了,不值一提。

  This attitude and close-mindedness will make it very difficult for you to grow. When you start reading about personal development from writers such as Anthony Robbins, Brian Tracy or Wayne Dyer you quickly realise that their best advice is not that much common sense at all. In fact, it's often the opposite to the more commonly accepted “truths” that many of us have heard through school, media and other people throughout our lives.

  这样消极的生活态度和狭隘的心灵将使你的成长变得艰难。当你开始阅读一些关于个人发展的书籍,例如,安东尼·罗宾、博恩·崔西或者韦恩·代尔所写的书籍,你就会发现他们的建议并不完全是毫无意义的;事实上,他们的建议和那些我们从学校、媒体和身边的人们那听到的道理,那些更为常见的“真理”恰恰相反。

  2. Being confused by the marketing hype

  错误二:因夸张的促销广告而产生疑惑。

  The mindset in the first example isn't totally of the mark. There are snake-oil salesmen in every line of business. And since most successful personal development authors/speakers really knows how to communicate there is bound to be perhaps a more than average amount of the high-pressure sales stuff you can read about in books like Influence by Robert Cialdini. Stuff like offering a small free gift to the consumer, saying that there are only 500 copies of the product and that the offer will only be available for one week.

  这与第一种错误心理是完全不一样的。在各行各业都有卖“万灵油”的推销员。当最成功的个人发展类作家或演讲家知道了如何与读者交流,你就能够在很多书籍中阅读到超过平均水平的。罗伯特·西奥迪尼所著的《影响力》就是其中之一。 或者是,能够给消费者提过一个免费的小礼品的书籍,例如此类书籍只有500本而且发行期仅限于一个星期。

  But even though some marketing techniques may seem overly optimistic or kinda aggressive doesn't mean that the products are without value. Don't confuse the sales techniques with the products.

  但是即使一些促销手段看上去过于乐观或者些许带些冒犯的意味,也并不意味着书籍本省没有价值。不要将促销手段和书籍的实际价值混为一谈。

  I say, start with trusted names or products that have received great reviews. Do a bit of your own research via google and browse the reviews on amazon before you buy. See what other people think. If you'd like, take a look at this list of my favourite personal development products so far.

  我建议,从那些值得信赖的作家或者受到好评的书籍开始。在google上做一些调查,在买之前在Amazon网站上查阅评论。看看其他人的看法。如果你喜欢,还可以看看目前最受欢迎的个人成长类书籍列表。

  3. Not taking action

  错误三:没有采取行动

  Thinking that reading a book or blog will automatically transform you and your life. But knowledge without action on your part is not that very transforming. And only you can change yourself. Others can only give a bit of advice, support and motivation. But in the end, you have to take the steps in real life.

  认为阅读一本书或浏览一个博客将会自然而然的改变你和你的生活。但是,心动没有行动并不能如你所愿的产生作用。只有你自己可以改变自己。其他人只能给与一些建议、支持和激励。但是最后,你必须在现实生活中采取行动。

  Have a look at Don't get stuck in reading for more thoughts on the common affliction of getting stuck in reading a whole lot of personal development books without putting much of the advice into action.

  可以阅读一下《不要拼命阅读》,其中有更多有用的想法。它们可以帮助那些读遍所有个人成长类书籍,却始终不能将书中的建议加以实践的人,让他们摆脱困扰。

  If you have problems taking action, it's often due to fear. Try the first and the second suggestion in this article on overcoming fear. It helped me to get going.

  如果你总是不能采取行动,那多半是因为你的恐惧。建议尝试本文章中第一条和第二条的建议,它们对我很有帮助。

  4. Giving up

  错误四:轻言放弃

  At the first or third failure thinking "It's no meaning. I am who I am and that can't change. I just have to get used to that thought." Don't give up. One or five or 20 failures ain't that big of a deal in the long run. You have to fail to get good at something and to grow.

  第一种或者第三种导致失败的想法:“这都没有意义。我只能是我自己,不能有什么改变。我不能不接受这个想法。”不要放弃,一次,五次,甚至是二十次的失败,从长远来看,都算不了什么。你不可能总是事事十全十美,即使失败了,也要继续前进。
