2015年6月六级听力小故事(2)如何让生活更有意义

发表时间:2015-06-13内容来源:VOA英语学习网
刚刚结束了15年6月听力的筒子们,都听出第二部分的第二个小故事是碗热腾腾的鸡汤了吗?不是人人都要干“大事”才是活的精彩为民造福,让自己的生活充满意义,助人为乐,从身边一点一滴的小事开始就是进步!如果让生活更有意义?10个小贴士告诉你! 1. Know What’s Important知道什么是重要的 Know what’s important for you. Write down your top 5 things that you believe are the essence of how you want to live life. This can include things like “family time,” or “sing every day.” It could also include more complex ideas, like “honesty” and “simplicity.”要知道对于自己而言什么是重要的。自己想要过怎样的生活?把你认为与此相关最重要的五件事写下来。这其中可能有“家庭时间”、“每天唱歌”,或者其他一些更为复杂的想法,比如“诚实”和“淳朴”。 2. Pursue Your Passion追寻激情 I believe everyone should pursue their passion in life. It’s what makes life worth living, and gives our lives true meaning and purpose. Each time you work on something you love, it creates joy inside you like nothing else. Finding a way to use your passions to give back to the world will give your life ultimate meaning.我认为每个人都应该在生活中追寻激情,这让人活得有价值并赋予生活意义和追求。每次做自己喜欢的事,总能让人心生愉悦,其他任何东西都无法与之相比。找到一种向着世界发挥激情的方式,这会给你的人生带来极大的意义。 If you can’t manage (or aren’t ready) to work on your passion for a living, be sure and make time for it every day. By working on your passion and becoming an expert in it, you will eventually have the opportunity to make money from it. Be ready to seize that opportunity!如果你无法(或尚且不能)靠激情来支撑自己的生活,那么至少确保每天有点时间做自己想做的事。如果做自己喜欢的事并成为那个领域专家,你早晚会有机会靠它赚钱的。做好准备抓住机会! 3. Discover Your Life’s Purpose找到人生目标 If you had to give yourself a reason to live, what would it be? What principles do you hold highest? Is your life’s purpose to help others? Is it to inspire others with great works of art, or you words? Finding your life’s purpose is a daunting task, and when I first heard the idea, I had no idea where to start. For methods on discovering your life’s purpose, I recommend Steve Pavlina’s blog entries on the subject.如果你需要给自己一个生活的理由,那会是什么呢?你人生最坚持的原则是什么?是用艺术作品或是文字去激励他人吗?找到人生目标是一个艰巨的任务。我第一次听到这个的时候也完全没有头绪,不知道该从哪里开始。要说寻找人生目标的方法,我推荐史蒂夫·帕夫林那关于这个话题的博客。 4. Be Self-Aware要自知 Be aware of yourself and your actions. Remain mindful of what you do at all times, and make sure you are living life according to your principles, your life’s purpose, and what you are passionate about. Review your actions each day. Meditation is a great tool for accomplishing this task. It helps us increase our self-awareness throughout the day.要有自知之明。不管什么时候,要知道自己在做什么,确保自己的生活方式符合自己的原则、人生目标和自己的激情所在。每天都要反思自己的所作所为。冥想是完成这个任务的好办法,可以帮助我们增强自知。 5. Focus要专注 Rather than chasing 3 or 4 goals and making very little progress on them, place all of your energy on one thing. Focus. Not only will you alleviate some of the stress associated with trying to juggle so many tasks, you will be much more successful. Try and align your goal with something you are passionate about, so that there will be an intrinsic drive to work hard and do well.把所有的经历放在一件事上,而不是在三、四个目标上有小小的进步。要专注。这样做,不仅可以帮助你缓解应对很多任务带来的压力,还能让你变得更加成功。试着把你的目标和感兴趣的事结合起来,这样你就有努力的动力,能够把事情做好。 6. People More Than Things人比物重要 Often, we are faced with wanting to buy material goods. I recommend you consider carefully what you purchase, and think more about spending your money on experiences with friends and family. Not only will this give deeper meaning to your life by focusing on your relationships rather than material wealth, but you will be a happier person as a result.我们经常会有想要购买物质商品的欲望。我推荐你在准备买东西时仔细想想清楚,更多地想想把金钱花在与家人朋友的经历上去。这不仅能让你重视人际关系而非物质财富,并以此人生赋予更深刻的意义,而且能让你变得更开心。 7. Live With Compassion有同情心 Both for yourself, and others. For some, compassion is the purpose of life, what gives it meaning, and what leads to ultimate happiness.于己于人都是如此。对于一些人而言,同情心是人生的目标,赋予人生意义,最终让人获得快乐。 8. Find a Way to Give Back找到回报的方法 Do something that both honors your beliefs and passions, while giving something back to the world.做一些既能满足自己的信仰和激情、又能回报世界的事。 9. Simplify Your Life活得简单 By simplifying your life, you’ll have more time to do what fulfills you and gives your life meaning. It can also help reduce stress and make your overall life easier to manage. It can also greatly improve your productivity.过简单的生活,你会有更多的时间充实自己、让人生有意义。这也有助于减压,让你能够更容易地掌握自己的整个人生。同时,还能很大程度上提高生产力。 10. Set Daily Goals设立每日目标 In the morning, before you start your day, create a list of 3 goals that you find fulfilling and meaningful. Make sure they adhere to your set of principles and beliefs. Tackle the hardest things first! Don’t make this list too long. By placing too many things on the list, you’ll feel the urge to multi-task, which is not good, or you’ll feel overwhelmed, which isn’t good either. By trying to do less, you’ll end up doing more.早上,开始一天的生活之前,为自己定下三个既让你感到满足又充满意义的目标。确保这三个目标符合你的原则和信仰。首先对付最困难的任务!不要让目标太多。如果目标太多,你就会想要同时完成多个任务,这样并不好;你也有可能感到被任务压倒,这样也不好。目标不多,反而能让你完成更多。来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20150613/252175.html
