在这篇文章中,萨古鲁分析了在生命中获得成功的因素。你拥有成功所需的要素吗?看看萨古鲁如何看待成功中天赋和努力的比重,成为你想成为的人。他说“成功不在于取得某种成果,而在于带着喜悦不断地为你真正在乎的事而努力。”

 

I just returned from the FIFA World Cup in Russia. The atmosphere, intensity, and excitement at the semi-finals and the final match were just incredible. During the tournament, established stars like Messi failed to score, and new stars like Mbappe rose to shine. Reputed teams got demolished, other nations emerged. I think for a nation like India, with millions of boys in the right age to start training, it is very much doable to participate in future football World Cups. So, what does it take to be successful? One thing is talent, another thing is striving. 

我刚从俄罗斯世界杯回来。世界杯半决赛和决赛中的氛围、强度和兴奋感简直难以置信。赛事期间,像梅西这样的著名球星表现欠佳,而像姆巴佩这样的新星冉冉升起。众望所归的球队被刷下了,其他国家开始崭露头角。我认为像印度这样的国家,拥有几百万可以开始训练的适龄男孩,要在将来踢进世界杯是完全可行的。那么,成功需要什么呢?一方面是天赋,另一方面是努力。

 

If you are willing to strive with complete openness, you can become whatever you choose.

如果你愿意带着全然的敞开度,全情地为一件事而努力,你可以成为任何你想要成为的人

 

In any field – whether someone is a great footballer, great artist, great actor, great musician, or anything else – I would say eighty percent of their success is striving and twenty percent talent. There are a few who are pure extraordinary talent – all others have to put in hours and hours of practice. It takes many thousands of hours of training for a footballer to reach world class level. To score one goal in the World Cup, they have been kicking the ball for four to six hours every day, over many years. 

在任何领域——无论他是个伟大的球员、艺术家、演员、音乐家或是其他——我会说,他们的成功80%来源于努力,20%来自天赋。极少数人纯粹凭借卓越的天赋——剩下的人都是靠日积月累点点滴滴的练习。一个足球员需要训练几千个小时才能达到国际水准。要在世界杯踢进一个球,他们需要付出很多年的努力,每天训练4-6个小时。

 

If you look at great actors – to perform for two hours on stage, they may have put in twelve, fifteen years of practice every day, and it pays off. It is not necessary to have extraordinary talent for anything. If you are willing to strive with complete openness, you can become whatever you choose. Once, when I was in school, the question came up what you can do and what you cannot do. I was thoroughly bored because I had a lot of things to do, but they were only talking about what to do. Then I said, “If I’m given enough money and time, I’ll build a staircase to the moon.” They thought this is arrogance. I said, “Maybe it has not been done, but with enough money and time, it can be done.” It is just a question of whether the opportunity turns up or not. Otherwise, what is it that a human being cannot do?  

如果你观察那些伟大的演员们——为了在台上表演2个小时,他们也许要连续12年、15年每天练习,而这一切是值得的。不是所有事情都需要超凡的天赋。如果你愿意带着全然的敞开度,全情地为一件事而努力,你可以成为任何想成为的。曾经,当我还在学校时,被问到:你认为自己什么事做得到,什么事做不到?我觉得这个问题很无聊,因为我有太多的事情要做,然而他们却只是在讨论能做什么事。然后我说:“如果我有足够的资金和时间,我会去搭建登月的天梯。”他们认为这是个傲慢的想法。我说:“也许它还没有实现,但是如果有足够的资金和时间,就能做到。” 这只是机遇是否出现的问题。否则,有什么是人类不能做的呢?

 

Success is not in a particular conclusion achieved but in the joyful and ceaseless striving for what you truly care for.

成功不在于取得某种成果,而在于带着喜悦不断地为你真正在乎的事而努力

 

Whether an opportunity presents itself or not is subject to various realities in the world. If the opportunity presents itself, are you ready for it? That is the difference between success and failure. If you want to be successful, you need passion and willingness to strive. Anyone who is passionate about life does not have any free time. There is always something to do – not necessarily work. If you do what you care for, it never feels like work. It never feels burdensome. You are willing to be on it twenty-four hours a day if you enjoy doing it. If you want to do something different – read, sing, dance, play, create something, or explore something new – that’s fine. But just hanging around? Your brain and your body should be exercised in such a way that they function at their maximum capacity. 

机会出现与否会受各种现实情况制约。如果机会出现了,你是否准备好了呢?那就是成功和失败的区别。如果你想成功,那么你需要激情和意愿去努力。任何对生命有激情的人都不会有空闲时间。总有事情要做——不一定是工作。如果做的是你在乎的事,就永远不会觉得像工作,永远不会觉得有负担。如果你很享受做这件事,你会愿意一天24小时都投入其中。如果你想体验一些不同的事情——阅读、歌唱、舞蹈、戏剧、发明创造,或者探索一些新事物——那也没问题。但是只是到处闲荡?你的头脑和身体应该得到充分锻炼,让它们能够以最大水平运行。

 

If you have nothing to do, that means there is stagnation in your life. I hope such a thing never happens to you. If you are flowing like a river, there is always something to do. Before you know it, life will be over. Even if you live a hundred years and spend all your time on it, it will still not be enough time to explore the full possibilities of human intelligence and human consciousness. Now is the time to live, not to rest. Rest will come when we put you into the grave. Success is not in a particular conclusion achieved but in the joyful and ceaseless striving for what you truly care for.

如果你无事可做,那就表示生命出现了停滞。我希望这样的情况永远不会发生在你身上。如果你像河流一样流动着,就总会有事可做。在你晃过神来之前,生命就结束了。就算你可以活一百年,并且投入你所有的时间,你还是不会有足够的时间去探索人类智慧和人类意识的所有可能性。现在是活的时候,而不是休息的时候。当我们将你安葬时休息自会到来。成功不是取得的成果,而是带着喜悦不断地为你真正在乎的事而努力。
