    how bad do you want to be successful?

    半个月前看的一个NBA视频,配音用的是 Eric Thomas 的一段励志演讲. There was a young man who, you know, he wanted to make a lot of money so he went to this guru, right? He told the guru, “I want to be on the same level you’re on”. And so the guru said, "If you want to be on the same level I’m on, I'll meet you tomorrow at the beach." So the young man got there at 4 A.M, all ready to rock and roll, got on a suit when he shoulda wore shorts. The old man grabs his hand and says, “How bad do you want to be successful?” He said, “Real bad” The old man says, “Walk on out into the water.” So he walks on out into the water, waist deep. So, to himself, he’s like, “This guy is crazy” He’s thinkin’, “I wanna make money, he’s got me out here swimming. I don’t want to be a life guard, I want to make money.” The old man says, “Come out a little further.” He walked out a little further, out to his shoulder area. He’s thinking, “This old man is crazy, he’s makin’ money but he’s crazy.” The old man says, “Come out a little further.” He came out a little further, it’s right at his mouth and he’s thinking, “I’m about to go right back, this guy's out of his mind.” So the old man said, “I thought you wanted to be successful?” He said, “I do!” The old man said, “Walk a little further.” He did, he walked a little further. The old man grabbed his head, under water, held him down, the guy was kickin’ and scratchin’, still holding him down, he had him held down and just before he was about to pass out the old man raised him up. “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breath, then you’ll be successful.” I don’t know how many of you have asthema (ASMA), you have a asthema attack, you’re short of breath, you’re weezin’, the only thing you’re trying to do is get some air. You don’t care about no basketball games, you don’t care what’s on TV, you don’t care about a party. The only thing you care about when you’re trying to breathe is to get some fresh air, that’s it. And when you get to the point of when you want to be successful as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful. And I’m here to tell you, number one, that most of you say want to be successful but you don’t want it bad, you just kind of want it. You don’t want it badder than you want to party, you don’t want it as much as you want to be cool, most of you don’t want success as much as you want to sleep! Some of you love sleep more than you love success. And I’m here to tell you that if you’re going to be successful you’ve got to be willing to give up sleep. You got to be willing to work off of three hours, two hours, of sleep. If you really want to be successful somedays you’re going to have to stay up for three days in a row! Because if you go to sleep you might miss the opportunity to be successful. That’s how bad you have to want it. You’ve got to want it so bad that somedays you forget to eat. Beyonce said once, on set, that three days had gone by and she was just doing her thing, she had forgotten to eat! Because she was engaged with her work. When 50 Cent was doing his movie, did a little research, that when he wasn’t doing his movie, he was doing his soundtrack. And they said, “When do you sleep 50!?” “Sleep?!”, he said, “Sleep?! Sleep is for those people who are broke. I don’t sleep. I got an opportunity to make a dream a reality.” Don’t try to quit. You’re already in pain, you’re already hurt, get a reward from it! Don’t go to sleep until you succeed. I’m here to tell you today you can come here, you can jump up, you can be excited when we give away money but listen to me you will never be successful if I have to give you a dime to do what you do. You won’t be successful until you say “I don’t need that money cause I got it in here!” 视频地址如下: [link url="http://v.hupu.com/nba/v218482.html"]

    LOVE by Roy Croft I love you, Not only for what you are, But for what I am When I am with you. I love you, Not only for what You have made of yourself, But for what You are making of me. I love you For the part of me That you bring out; I love you For putting your hand Into my heaped-up heart And passing over All the foolish, weak things That you can’t help Dimly seeing there, And for drawing out Into the light All the beautiful belongings That no one else had looked Quite far enough to find. I love you because you Are helping me to make Of the lumber of my life Not a tavern But a temple; Out of the works Of my every day Not a reproach But a song. I love you Because you have done More than any creed Could have done To make me good And more than any fate Could have done To make me happy. You have done it Without a touch, Without a word, Without a sign. You have done it By being yourself. Perhaps that is what Being a friend means, After all. 我爱你,不是因为你是谁. 而是因为你在我身边的时候,我是谁。 我爱你,不仅因为你为我而做的事. 而是因为为了你,我能做的事。 我爱你,因为你,唤醒了我内心最深处的纯真。 我爱你,因为当你的手轻轻抚过我伤痕累累的心. 我的愚钝,我的软弱,你都可以视而不见。 我爱你,因为只有你的光芒,能穿透到我的内心. 所有的美好,除了你,从没有人找到过。 我爱你,因为有你, 从此,我的生命,我生命里的每一天,都不再荒芜。 我爱你,因为你是我的信仰,你是我的神. 耕种于我的心田,那里,日光照耀,花开如树。 我爱你,因为这些,只有你做到了. 不需要触碰,不需要言语,甚至连一个手势都不需要。 我爱你,因为只有你,只是你,也只能是你,才能做到。 我爱你。
