Some people would argue that life experience is crucial to being a motivational speaker, but an 11-year-old kid from Pakistan is proving that all you really need is an inspirational speech and confidence.

有人认为,生活经历是成为励志演说家的关键。然而,这位11岁的巴基斯坦小哥向世人证明:成为励志演说家,你只需要具备鼓舞人心的演讲和自信心。

At just 11 years of age, Hammad Safi has accomplished what most of us won’t be able to do in a lifetime. He is the youngest motivational speaker in Pakistan, and probably the world, a freelancer, TV anchor and a lecturer at the University of Peshawar, where he teaches students twice his age. He has been referred to as a “super kid”, a “child extraordinaire”, “motivational guru” and even “the little genius of Pakistan”, but he hasn’t let the adulation go to his head. Instead he continues to inspire others and push his vision of an educated Pakistan, and access to technology in order to connect the youth to the modern world.

Hammad Safi年仅11岁,却取得了大部分人一辈子无法取得的成就。目前,他是巴基斯坦(甚至全世界)最年轻的励志演说家、自由职业者、电视节目主持人、白沙瓦大学的讲师——他的学生年龄比他大一倍。他被誉为“超级儿童”、“杰出儿童”、“励志古鲁”甚至“巴基斯坦小天才”。不过,他并未让这些吹捧话语冲昏头脑。相反,他继续鼓舞人们,同时开拓自己的眼界、接触现代技术。

“He is not an ordinary child. People have seen something in him. I have myself seen abilities in him. That’s why I have appointed special teachers for him,” Safi’s father, Abdul Rehman Khan, recently told AFP. “I want him to become a special leader. I’m very proud… For his abilities, for his intelligence, he is God-gifted.”

他的父亲接受采访时说道:

他不是个普通孩子。人们在他身上看到了某些东西。我自己就在他身上看到了某些能力。因此,我为他聘请了特殊教师。我希望他成为一名特殊领袖。我非常自傲……为他的能力,为他的聪慧,他是上帝恩赐的。

Abdul’s description may seem exaggerated – he is Hammad’s father after all – but the boy is indeed capable of feats way beyond his years. How many 11-year-olds do you know that can command the attention of thousands of adults while speaking on serious topics like success, life challenges or responsibility? Hammad can, and he does it with ease, relying on his innate charisma, practiced hand gestures and an uncanny confidence that mesmerises his audiences.

他也许有些夸大其词(毕竟是自家孩子),但Hammad取得的成就确实超乎他的实际年龄。试问,有多少11岁儿童能够在谈论成功、人生挑战、责任等严肃主题时吸引数万成年人的注意力?然而,他却能够轻松做到这点——凭借天生的个人魅力、熟练的手势和不可思议的自信心。

The 11-year-old motivational speaker also makes use of the internet to make sure that his speeches reach as many people as possible. His YouTube channel currently has nearly 160,000 subscribers and some of his videos have been viewed millions of times. The topics he touches on during his lectures are not the most original, but the way he approaches them combined with his age seems to have a very strong effect on people.

另外,这位小小励志演说家还利用网络传播自己的演讲。目前,他的YouTube频道拥有将近16万订阅者,他的部分演讲视频达到数百万点击量。他的演讲主题不算新颖,但他的演讲方式和幼小年龄似乎具有极大的感染力。

“A few months ago I was really disappointed with life… I was (thinking) about suicide, because there are no jobs and no success in life,” a student twice Hammad’s age told AFP. “Then I saw a movie of Hammad Safi. I thought, if an 11-year-old child can do anything, why can’t I?”

几个月前,我对人生失望透顶,我想着自杀,因为既没有工作、也没有任何成就。后来,我看到Hammad Safi的一个视频。我想,如果一个11岁儿童都能取得成就,我为什么不能呢?

That is what makes Safi so special, his power to get his message across and inspire people much older than him.

这就是Safi的特殊之处,他能够激励比他年长许多的人。

Hammad Safi comes from one of the wealthiest families in Peshawar, but he doesn’t seem concerned with material gains. Instead, he reportedly spends 10 to 12 hours every day reading and studying other motivational speakers so he can perfect his skills. He dreams of one day becoming a leader and showing the worth of his country to the world.

Hammad Safi出生于白沙瓦的富豪家庭,但他似乎不关心物质利益(吐槽:因为有钱所以不关心钱啊)。据报导,他每天花10-12个小时阅读和研究其他励志演说家,从而完善自己的技巧。他梦想成为一名领袖,向世界展示巴基斯坦的价值。

Many in Pakistan are astonished by Hammad’s self-confidence and his ability to lecture on important subjects, but there as also those who believe that this role is depriving the boy of his childhood.

在巴基斯坦,许多人惊叹于他的自信心和演讲能力。也有人认为,他的儿童天性已被剥夺。
