  人生最应该丰富的是什么?履历吗?知识储备吗?工作经验吗?都不是。以下这篇英文演讲,道出了人生哲理。

  A university professor started off his class by picking out of his back pocket a 20-pound note. And in this lecture hall of about 200 people he asked, “How many of you would like this note?”

  Naturally, all 200 hands went up. He said, “Interesting.” He then said, “Before i let you have it, let me ask you this question.” He took the note and folded it in half twice, and then he said, “How many of you want this note?” Still 200 hands went up. Now he said, “Let me try something else.” He took the note and he crumpled it.

  And he said, “How many of you want this note now?” Still 200 hands went up. Finally he chucked the note on the floor. He screwed it with his shoe and crumpled it even more, picked it back up, now with dirt, and said, “How many of you want this note?”

  All 200 hands were still up. He said, “Today, you’ve leraned an important lesson. No matter how much i crumpled that note, how much i scrunched it up, how many times it was trodden on, you still wanted it, because it was still worth 20-pounds.”

  In the same way that that 20-pound note held its value,so do you.”

  No matter how many times life will tread on you, life will crumple you, life will scrunch you, and life squeeze you, you will always keep your value, that spark within us all of bliss, knowledge, and eternity that exists, that spark will never be taken away.

  Our value is not created by the price of our clothes or our bank balance or the job title that we have. See, we should be building life and not just building our CVs. The challenge we have is that we only talk about people’s failures when they succeed.

  And that’s why they become this taboo or we feel like their failures never happened. We need to share these stories earlier.

  We need to bring out these stories and experiences on the journey so that people who are on the jouney can actually follow in those footsteps. And that’s why Steve Jobs said, “You can’t connect the dots moving forward. You only can when you’re looking backwards.”

  一位大学教授在上课的一开始,从背包里拿出了一张20英镑的钞票,在大约200多人的教室里。

  “有谁想要这张钞票?”很自然,大家都举起了手。

  他将钞票对折、再对折。

  “有谁想要这张钞票?”同样的,大家依旧举起了手。

  这次他将手里的钞票团成了团。

  “有谁想要这张钞票?”一样,所有人都举起了手。

  最后他将纸钞仍在了地上,用脚把它踩得更皱,捡起来,现在钞票是脏的了。

  “有谁想要这张钞票?”结果大家依旧都举起了手。

  无论怎样折这张钞票、怎样揉它、踩它,你们他是想要,是因为还是他价值20英镑。


  其实,每个人的价值就好比钞票。

  无论人生如何践踏你、蹂躏你、糟蹋你、压榨你,你永远不会失去你的人生价值。

  潜藏于骨内的,那喜悦、知识、永恒的闪耀的火光,永远都不会熄灭。

  我们的价值并非穿多少钱的衣服、银行存款,或是工作平稳来决定。

  我们应该丰富的是人生阅历,而不是履历。


  在2009年的中旬,他还是个没人想要雇佣的软件工程师。

  他在雅虎工作了12年,当他去应聘,却先后被拒绝了数次。

  他从优秀的大学毕业,拥有漂亮的履历。

  但他没有气馁,当他被拒绝的时候,他却讲这是能拓展人脑的好机。

  随后他跟之前雅虎的同事们一起制作了一款APP,在五年后,以190亿美金卖给了之前被拒绝的公司。

  这个人就是WhatsApp的共同创始人Brian Acton。


  她被诊断出有严重的多发性硬化症,这是种家族遗传病。

  她婚姻失败,没有工作,还要抚养孩子。

  她在一班误点四小时,从曼彻斯特开往伦敦的列车上,突然有了灵感。

  她想写一本有关巫师的书。

  当他开始写作、完成手稿后,带着手稿找了12家出版社,12家都拒绝了。

  直至如今成为全球排行前十的畅销书——《哈利波特》。

  这就是J.K.罗琳的事迹。


  他看着自己的第一间公司倒闭。

  他从哈佛大学辍学。

  他的第一公司的展示机还是失败品。

  后来他创建了微软。

  他的名字叫比尔盖茨。


  所以,失败只是一种信号。

  他告诉我们应该拓展自己的视野,我们必须为了更上一层楼养精蓄锐,事实上,我们最后的成就远远超过自己的想象。

  所谓命运的安排,如若不是失败的介入也不会发生。

  因为如果一切都尽如人意,我们将会欣然的接受我们以为的目标,我们以为自己所追求的东西。

  但事实上,当你失败了,回过头来反省时,你会发现自己得到了更多。

  如果不从失败中学习,失败终究是失败。

  当你从失败中吸取教训,失败就会成为人生的课程。
