This is really a two-hour presentation I give to high school students, cut down to three minutes.

这是一个我给高中学生做的两个小时的演讲,现在缩到了三分钟。

And it all started one day on a plane, on my way to TED seven years ago.

所有的一切都是从7年前的一天开始,我坐在飞往TED公开课的飞机上。

And in the seat next to me was a high school student, a teenager,...

在我邻座坐的是一个高中生,一个十几岁的年轻人...

...and she came from a really poor family.

...她生于一个贫穷的家庭。

And she wanted to make something of her life, and she asked me a simple little question.

而且她的愿望是成就一番事业,所以她问了我一个简单的小问题。

She said, "What leads to success?"

她说:“怎样做才能成功呢?”

And I felt really badly, because I couldn't give her a good answer.

我当时感觉很糟糕,因为不能给她一个满意的答案。

So I get off the plane, and I come to TED.

所以我下了飞机,来到TED。

And I think, "Jeez, I'm in the middle of a room with successful people!"

我想;“天哪,我置身于一屋子成功人士之中!”

"So, why don't I ask them what helped them succeed and pass it on to kids?"

“那么,为什么我不问问他们是怎样走向成功的呢,这样我就可以把答案告诉孩子们了”

So here we are, seven years, 500 interviews later,...

所以就这样,7年中我做了500次采访...

...and I'm gonna tell you what really leads to success and makes TEDsters tick.

...现在我就要告诉你们是什么带来了成功,是什么启发了TED讲演者们。

And the first thing is passion.

第一点是激情。

Freeman Thomas says, "I'm driven by my passion."

费尔曼.托马斯说: “我总是被我的热情所牵引着。”

TEDsters do it for love, they don't do it for money.

TED的演讲者都是做自己爱好的事,不是为了钱。

Carol Coletta says, "I would pay someone to do what I do."

卡罗尔.科蕾塔说: “我会付给别人钱去做我的工作。”

And the interesting thing is, if you do it for love, the money comes anyway.

有趣的是,如果你是为了爱而做的,钱自然而然就来了。

Work!

工作!

Rupert Murdoch said to me, "It's all hard work."

鲁勃.莫多茨对我说:“这是刻苦努力的工作。”

"Nothing comes easily."

“天下没有白吃的午餐。”

"But I have a lot of fun."

“但是我得到了很多乐趣。”

Did he say fun? Rupert?

他提到了乐趣?鲁勃?

Yes!

是的!

TEDsters do have fun working.

TED讲演者都有一份充满乐趣的工作。

And they work hard.

而且他们都很刻苦。

I figured, they're not workaholics,...

我觉得,他们都不是工作狂...

...they're workafrolics.

...他们是享受工作狂。

Good!

精通!

Alex Garden says, "To be successful, put your nose down in something and get damn good at it."

亚历克斯.嘉顿说:“要想成功,就要真的深入其中,然后做到精通。”

There's no magic; it's practice, practice, practice.

要想做到精通没有秘诀;就是练习,练习,再练习。

And it's focus.

还有就是专注。

Norman Jewison said to me, "I think it all has to do with focusing yourself on one thing."

诺尔曼.杰尔森告诉过我:“想要成功就要使自己专注于一件事情。”

And push!

强迫!

David Gallo says, "Push yourself.

大卫.加洛说:“强迫你自己。

Physically, mentally, you've got to push, push, push."

身体上,精神上,你一定要强迫,强迫,强迫。”

You gotta push through shyness and self-doubt.

你要强迫自己去战胜羞涩和自我怀疑。

Goldie Hawn says, "I always had self-doubts."

戈迪.霍恩说:“我总是怀疑自己。”

"I wasn't good enough, I wasn't smart enough."

“怀疑自己不够优秀,不够聪明。”

"I didn't think I'd make it."

“我从不相信我会成功。”

Now, it's not always easy to push yourself, and that's why they invented mothers.

想要成功地强迫自己并不容易,这就是为什么要发明妈妈。

Frank Gehry said to me, "My mother pushed me."

法兰克.格里对我说:“我妈妈过去总是督促我。”

Serve!

服务!

Sherwin Nuland says, "It was a privilege to serve as a doctor."

雪文.诺兰说:“能够作为一名医生为他人服务是一种荣幸。”

Now, a lot of kids tell me they want to be millionaires.

现在很多孩子告诉我他们想成为百万富翁。

And the first thing I say to them is, "Okay well, you can't serve yourself,..."

但我对他们说的第一件事就是:“好的,但是你不能为你自己服务...”

"...you gotta serve others something of value,..."

“...你需要为他人提供有利于他人的服务。”

"...because that's the way people really get rich."

“...因为这就是人们致富的方式。”

Ideas. TEDster Bill Gates says, "I had an idea,..."

点子。TED演讲者比尔.盖茨说:“我曾经有过一个点子...”

"...founding the first microcomputer software company."

“...成立第一个微机软件公司。”

I'd say it was a pretty good idea.

我必须承认这真的是一个很好的点子。

And there's no magic to creativity in coming up with ideas; it's just doing some very simple things.

对于能想出点子的创造力来讲没有什么魔力可言;都是些简单平常的事情。

And I give lots of evidence.

而且我可以举出很多证据。

Persist.

坚持。

Joe Kraus says, "Persistence is the number one reason for our success."

乔.克鲁斯说:“恒心是我们成功地第一条原因。”

You gotta persist through failure.

你必须坚持度过失败。

You've got to persist through CRAP...

你必须坚持度过CPAR...

...which of course means "Criticism, Rejection, Assholes and Pressure."

...这里的crap是指“批评,拒绝,卑鄙小人和压力。”

So, the big ant, the answer to this question is simple:...

所以,这个问题的答案很简单:...

...pay 4,000 bucks and come to TED.

...付4000块来TED会场。

Or failing that, do the eight things and trust me,...

如果不能来,就做到以上八点,相信我...

...these are the big eight things that lead to success.

...这重要的八点就是通向成功的秘诀。

Thank you, TEDsters for all your interviews!

谢谢TED的讲演者参与我的访问!
