内容提要:你不只意味着一个头衔,不只意味着工资单上的数字,也不只意味着挂在墙上的那个奖励。为了到达你心中的目的地,你一定得走这样一条路吗?只有你能回答。

   Is your definition of success a fatal mistake?你对成功的定义是一个致命错误吗?
 
  For some, success is defined in terms of the dollar amount on a paycheck. For others, it's the title on their business card. Others may define success in terms of the accolades and awards they have won.
 
  有些人用薪水定义成功。对另一些人来说,成功是名片上的头衔。其它人也许根据赞誉和奖励来定义。
 
  But the problem with how people define success these days is that when they're forced to change it, they can't. Look at the businessmen who have committed suicide because they have lost fortunes. Consider the workers who are fired and then go back to work, armed with a gun.
 
  对于很多人来说,问题在于,让他们改变自己对于成功的定义是不可能的。看看那些因为损失钱财而自杀的商人,想想被解雇后带了一只枪回公司的员工。
 
  Extreme cases, sure. Not everyone considers killing themselves or others when their livelihood is threatened. But it does point out that maybe we need to revisit our own definition of success.
 
  当然,这些都是极端例子。并不是每个人在生计受到威胁的时候会自杀或杀人。但这的确说明,也许我们需要重新定义成功。
 
  Start by completing this definition: "Success to me is…"
 
  首先,完成这个句子:  “成功对我而言是……”
