سخنان آنتونی رابینز (2)
ارسال در تاريخ 92/03/19 توسط توحید محمودپور

11. If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you'll achieve the same results.

اگر می خواهید موفق شوید، کسانی را پیدا کنید که به نتایجی که شما می خواهید دست یافته اند و آنچه را آنها انجام می دهند مدل سازی کنید.بدین ترتیب همان نتایج را بدست خواهید آورد.

 

12. It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.

(و این) در لحظه های تصمیم گیری است که سرنوشت شما شکل می گیرد.

 

13. Live with passion.

با شور و اشتیاق زندگی کنید.

 

14. It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute… that gives meaning to our lives.

آنچه که بدست می آوریم به زندگی ما معنی نمی بخشد بلکه آن کسی که می شویم و آنچه که می بخشیم به زندگی ما معنی خواهد داد.

 

15. It's not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.

این حوادث زندگی نیست که بر ما تاثیر می گذارد بلکه باورهای ما به اینکه آن اتفاقات چه معنایی دارند زندگی ما را شکل می دهد.

 

16. Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.

زندگی موهبتی است که به ما امتیاز، فرصت و مسئولیت پیشکش می کند تا با فراتر رفتنمان چیزی را بازگردانیم.

 

17. Passion is the genesis of genius.

شور و اشتیاق سرچشمه نبوغ است.

 

18. What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.

کاری که می توانیم یا نمی توانیم انجام دهیم و چیزی که ممکن یا ناممکن می دانیم بندرت تعیین کننده توانایی واقعی ما هستند بلکه بیشتر مشخص کننده باورهای ما مبنی بر اینکه چه کسی هستیم می باشند.

 

19. You see, it's never the environment; it's never the events of our lives, but the meaning we attach to the events – how we interpret them – that shapes who we are today and we'll become tomorrow.

همان طوری که می بینید این هرگز محیط  و رویدادهای زندگی ما نیستند بلکه معنایی که ما به رویدادها می بخشیم و برداشتی که از آنها می کنیم تعیین می کند امروزچه کسی هستیم و فردا چه کسی خواهیم بود.

 

20. In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but we do consistently.

اساساً اگر می خواهیم زندگی خود را مدیریت کنیم، باید اعمال مداوم خود را کنترل کنیم.(در واقع)نه کاریکه گاه گاه انجام می دهیم بلکه آن را که به طور مداوم انجام می دهیم به زندگی ما شکل می دهد
