励志小短文1:Happiness Is a State of Mind Every day of your life, it is important to take the time to “smell the roses” — to appreciate the experiences that lead to happiness. This is part of being truly happy. Happiness is a state of mind. It starts with accepting where you are, knowing where you are going and planning to enjoy every moment along the way. You know how to be happy, and feel that you have enough time or money or love or whatever you need to achieve your goals. And just feeling that you have enough of everything means that you do indeed have enough. You have to choose to be happy, and focus upon being happy, in order to be happy. If you instead focus upon knowing that you will be happy if you achieve something, you will never be happy, as you have not learned to “smell the roses”. The irony is that when you are happy, you are inevitably more productive, and far more likely to achieve what everything-seekers are seeking. 翻译:幸福是一种思考状态 在你生活中的每一天,花些时间“闻闻身边的玫瑰”是十分重要的 —— 停下脚步,品味那些带给你幸福的经历。这是真正快乐的一部分。 幸福是一种思考状态。当你开始接受自己现在的生活状态,知晓你将来如何发展,并已做好准备享受这过程中的每个瞬间时,幸福便已悄悄来到你身边。你知道如何才能幸福,并感到自己拥有充裕的时间和金钱,足够的爱,和其他任何能够帮助你达成目标的东西。当你感到自己已拥有一切,这才是真正的知足。 如果你想幸福,就必须去选择它。你需要专注于幸福这件事本身,以使幸福降临。但如果你总是想着,你若能完成某件事就会变得很幸福,那么你将永远无法得到幸福,因为你没有学会“闻闻身边的玫瑰”。而讽刺的是,当你感到幸福美满,你将不可避免地更加富有成就,并更有可能比那些“执着于得到一切的人”拥有更多。   励志小短文2:Look Within to Find Happiness How often do you hear people say "I will be happy when ..."such as "When I get that thing, I will be happy," "I will be happy when I pass the exam" and "I would be happy if I had more money". I have heard these things before and I am sure that I will hear them again. Many people want to believe that finding happiness is all about finding or getting something that they want. However, not many people have ever found long-term happiness by achieving a goal. There will always be another thing that they want. There will always be another exam or another dollar. To break this vicious cycle, we must find our happiness somewhere else —within ourselves. In other words, happiness is completely an inside job. The key to finding happiness is to understand that happiness is a choice rather than the result of an experience. We have been given everything We need to be happy. Allow yourself to choose happiness. If life was perfect, would you be happy? Life is perfect because we create it with our choices. Since we can create life, we can create happiness and choose how much better our lives can get! Only when we can accept that life is perfect as it is, and that our lives are the sum total of everything that has happened up to this moment, can we accept the joy and the happiness we deserve. 翻译:快乐在你心里 "等我得到那个东西就会开心","等我通过那次考试就会开心","等我有更多的钱就会开心",诸如此类的"等……的时候就会开心"话,你听过不少次吧?我听过这样话,而且相信以后还会听到。 许多人都相信,找到幸福就等于找到或得到他们的心仪之物。然而,很多人并没有在目标实现之后就获得长久的幸福。这是因为人们总想要得到更多的东西,总还要走入考场,总还要赚更多的钱。 为了打破这种恶性循环,我们必须在其他地方找到幸福——那就是在我们的内心世界里。换句话说,幸福是心灵的产物。得到幸福的关键就在于要懂得幸福是一种选择,而不是经历的结果。 我们已经拥有获得幸福所需要的一切。去选择自己的幸福吧!倘若生活是完美的,你会觉得幸福吗?人生之所以完美就因为它是我们通过选择创造出来的。既然我们能创造生活,我们就能创造幸福,并选择更美好的人生! 我们只有在接受生活原本就很完美,并且生活就是此刻所经历之事的全部之时,我们才能得到我们应得的那份喜悦与幸福。   励志小短文3:Conquer Fears To conquer our fears, we must go past them. To fear is natural; to go past them is heroic. Fear is a normal part of life, symbolizing that there are new, extraordinary things to come across and face. To be able to see these things before they happen is a sign of wisdom. Fear is nothing out of the ordinary. To admit that we are fearing is to prove that we value our life. And men should pay attention to the call of fears. To truly be a leader or someone who is heroic and brave, we should focus on getting past these fears. And it is frightful for people to go through life ignoring fears, because they may often forget their heart and step into life without responsibility. To be born is to live. To live is to fear. To fear is to be challenged. To accept our fears is to be mature. It needs bravery, maturity and vitality to face our fears, accept the challenges and hope for the best. 翻译:克服恐惧 若想克服恐惧,我们就必须要敢于正视它们。 恐惧是一件很自然的事,但克服恐惧却是一种英勇的行为。恐惧是日常生活中不可或缺的一部分,它意味着我们要去面对和处理层出不穷的、意想不到的事情。能够预知将要发生的事情是一种智慧。恐惧并不是什么稀奇事儿,而且承认恐惧是证明我们珍视生命的有力证据。 人人都应该对恐惧的到来有先见之明。要想成为真正的佼佼者或者英勇之人,我们就必须集中精力去正视恐惧。那些在生活中忽视恐惧的人是非常可怕的,因为他们不仅常常违背自己的心意,而且在缺少责任心中苟且偷生。 生者为生,生来为惧,惧为应站,迎惧者谙事理。要想正视恐惧、接受挑战、憧憬美好未来,那就要具备大无畏的勇气、成熟的心智与顽强的生命力。   励志小短文4:Your Starting Point You are where you are. Accept it and feel the power your acceptance gives you to move forward. This moment is as it is. Accept its uniqueness and experience the freedom of not having to fight against it. There are difficult challenges in your life. Accept them and feel the energy that will enable you to rise above them. Accept that this is your starting point. Instead of placing judgements on it, see the real, positive value that’s already yours. You cannot change where your past priorities* and choices have brought you. Yet you can make use of the wisdom you’ve earned to create a future that fulfils your most treasured dreams. Lovingly and gratefully accept who you’ve been, what you’ve done, what you have and where you are. For you can now transform it all into what you most wish to be. 翻译:你的起点 你就处在这样一个位置。接受这个事实,感受随之而来的力量,这份力量会驱使你前进。 此刻就是这样。接受这一刻的独特性,体验无需与之对抗的自由。 你的生活中充满了艰巨的挑战。接受这些挑战,鼓足勇气去战胜它们。 相信此刻就是你的起点。无需再判断,看到你所具备的真正意义上的价值。你过去认为重要的事和以前做过的选择给你带来了什么都是无法改变的。然而你可以充分利用你的智慧去创造未来,实现你最珍爱的梦想。 满怀爱心和感激之情,接受现实的自己,接受你所做过的、你所拥有的以及你所处的位置。现在你可以按你的愿望去改变它们。   励志小短文5:Make It Be Don’t allow your troubles to get the best of you. Instead, allow those troubles to make the best of you. Don’t tire yourself out fighting against the challenges. Instead, find new energy by embracing1 those challenges and working through them to create real value. Always remind yourself that discour-agement is nothing more than a response you’ve chosen. When you find that you’ve chosen to let it be, you can just as surely choose to let it go. Replace discouragement with determin-ation. It is your life’s energy, and you can point it in whatever direction you choose. Your most powerful response is not based only on what has already happened. Your most powerful response also takes into account what you wish to make happen next. Look forward, and envision in great detail the future you desire. Then gather all your energy, and step forward to make it be. 翻译:让梦想成真 不要被烦恼击败,相反,要让这些烦恼磨练出更优秀的你。 不要因与挑战作斗争而身心疲惫,相反,要在接受挑战、战胜挑战的过程中找到活力去创造真正的价值。 时常提醒自己,气馁只不过是你自己的选择。当你发现是你选择了气馁,你当然也可以选择不这样。 用决心消除气馁,这就是你生命的活力,是放之四海而皆准的。你最有力的反应不仅仅受所发生的事情的影响,而且与你期待发生的事情有一定关联。 向前看,详尽地展望你所期盼的未来。然后集中你所有的精力,努力前进,让梦想成真。   励志小短文6:Pathway to Success Life is not about just getting by. Life is about reaching ever higher, building one achievement on top of another, and creating real, meaningful value in each moment. A common stone on the ground does a great job of just getting by. You, on the other hand, are destined1 for much more spectacular things. Yes, indeed, you will certainly meet a number of challenges when you make the effort to raise your world even a little bit higher. The good thing is, you are superbly equipped to thrive on those challenges. If life seems unsuccessful, it’s not because of the challenges or limitations that stand in your way. It’s because you refuse to see the exceptional opportunities that those challenges represent. This is your precious and unique life, and it is absolutely worth all the trouble and effort you must go through to make it great. Within you at this moment are beautiful dreams, and you can begin to live in the direction of those dreams whenever you choose. Let go of the false security of just getting by, and get yourself into focus on a purpose that will bring your life gloriously to life. Your very own pathway to success is just one quick step away. 翻译:成功之路 生活并不是过得去就行,而是需要我们每时每刻都有所超越,不断取得成就,并且创造真正的、有意义的价值。 地上的一块普通的石子只是躺在那里就做得很好了。然而,你注定是要做大事的。是的,当你努力提升自己时,你的确会遇到许多困难,哪怕只是提升一点点。幸运的是,你有能力战胜那些挑战。 如果生活看起来并不是一帆风顺的,那并不是因为你前方的道路上有挑战或阻碍,而是因为你没有看到那些挑战中蕴藏的良机。 这是你所珍爱的、独一无二的生活。为了让它变得更美好,经历困难、付出努力都是值得的。此刻,你的内心充满着美好的梦想,只要你选择,你就可以朝着梦想的方向生活。 摒弃生活只要过得去就行这样的错误观点,全心投入一个目标——让你的生活更加精彩。成功之路离你仅一步之遥。   励志小短文7:Positive Thoughts It is not easy to think positive thoughts when the world around you appears to be so negative. In fact, it can be as difficult as anything you’ve ever done. However, it is absolutely possible to fill your mind with positive thoughts no matter what the environment is. Doing so makes you powerful like nothing else can. To think positively is to alignyourselfwith1 the truth that you’re immersed2 in limitless, growing abundance. To think positively is to pleasantly accept that your life is full of meaningful and unique achievements. Instead of placing a judgement on your situation, apply your most positive purposes to that situation. Instead of seeing the world as negative, see yourself as a powerful agent of the positive possibilities. If you find yourself giving in to negativity, you are selling yourself short. The moment you feel the slightest pain of a negative thought, stop and remind yourself how powerful you are. Do the intentional work of keeping your thoughts positive. Because whatever you always think is where your life will surely and steadily go. 翻译:乐观思想 当你周围的人或物都看似消极时,让你持有乐观思想并非是件容易的事。实际上,这和你做过的任何一件事一样难。然而,无论身处怎样的环境,用乐观的思想填充你的大脑是完全可能的。这样做会使你变得无比强大。 乐观地思考就是在证明一个事实——你的生活正处于日益丰盈的状态。乐观地思考也是在欣然接受一个事实——你的生活充满着意义深远、与众不同的成就。 不要只顾着对你所处的形势作出评价,要把你的积极目标付诸于实际。不要只看到世界的消极一面,要看到自己能够创造积极可能性的强大力量。 如果你发现自己正向消极屈服,那么你就是在轻视自己。在你感受到消极思想所带来的一丝疼痛的那一刻,停下来吧,提醒自己你是多么强大。做一些有利于塑造积极思想的事情,因为你的思想正引领着你生活稳步前行的方向。   励志小短文8:Angels are Always There Surrounding you are angels, they are there to guide your path.

It can carve hard lines on beautiful faces and wear out youth year after year, but using it well can make a piece of simple stone into a great statue. St. Mary Academy is still a simple piece of white stone briefly carved, but as time marches on, duanwenw,.com it may be spoiled by dust, worn out by weather, or broken into separate pieces. It may be also carefully carved by knife into wonderful statues. Everyone at school, including our schoolmates, controls this knife. If I have a chance to live to be an old woman, I shall, in my peaceful dreams, seek the old paths leading through the trees which I used to travel down in my earlier days. The old bell tower, standing in the golden sunlight, makes a slow, solemn1 sound as girls pour into the church like a stream. There they will kneel, pray and whisper to their spiritual Lord about the little things in their lives. They will ask him to help them in reaching their future goals and I can hear the old church tower whisper in return, "Yes, St. Mary certainly possesses the most hard-working girls that shall glorify2 her with their bright futures!" What I feel when I hear these words depends on whether I have done anything meaningful over the years.
