原文:

Life Isn't a Competition

   You will meet many people who will try to outdo you, in school, in college, at work. They'll try to have nicer cars, bigger houses, nicer clothes, cooler gadgets. To them, life is a competition - they have to do better than their peers to be happy.

   Here's a secret: Life isn't a competition. It's a journey. If you spend that journey always trying to impress others, to outdo others, you're wasting your journey. Instead, learn to enjoy the journey. Make it a journey of Happiness, of constant learning, of continual improvement, of love.

   Don't worry about having a nicer car or houseor anything material, or even a better-paying job. None of that matters a whit, and none of it will make you happier. You'll acquire these things and then onlywant more. Instead, learn to be satisfied with having enough - and then use thetime you would have wasted trying to earn money to buy those things … use thattime doing things you love.

   Find your passion, and pursue it doggedly. Don't settle for ajob that pays the bills. Life is too short to waste on a job you hate.


译文:

生命不是一场竞赛

   无论在中学,大学,还是在工作中,你都会遇到很多人,他们将试图超过你。他们想要拥有更好的车,更大的房子,更好的衣物,更酷的小玩意。对他们来说,生命就是一场竞赛。 他们只有在比同龄人更好时,才会感到幸福。

  告诉你一个秘诀:生命并不是一场竞赛,而是一个旅程。如果你在途中一直都试图给他人留下深刻印象,希望超过别人,你就是在浪费你的旅程。与之相反,你要学会享受旅程。使它成为一个幸福的、不断学习、不断改进和充满爱的旅程。

  不要为拥有一辆更好的车或一所更好的房子或者任何物质的东西而忧虑,甚至也不要为一个更好的高薪工作而担心。没有这些根本无足轻重,没有这些反而会使你快乐。当你得到这些东西之后,想要的只有更多。相反地,要学会知足,然后用你浪费在挣钱买这些东西上的时间,去做你真正热爱的事情。

  找到你的目标,然后坚持不懈地去努力追求。不要停留在一份只为营生的工作上。生命太短暂,可不要浪费在你不喜欢的工作上哦。
