小编摘要:冒险并不能保证你能实现你所渴望的结果。然而,当机会向你走来时,你可以做一些事来最优化成功的机会。

导读:

你有过曾经停在演讲台上,与站在你面前的参议员讲话时双手颤抖的经历吗?你有过曾经给你的冰鞋饰上花边,听到你将作为下个滑冰运动员出场比赛时浑身战栗的经历吗?你有过曾经发现一个吃惊的机会,却只让你意识到你害怕尝试的经历吗?冒险并不能保证你能实现你所渴望的结果。然而,当机会向你走来时,你可以做一些事来最优化成功的机会。

机会


1. Get yourself prepared (and keep your eyes open).

时刻做好准备(把你的眼睛睁大了)


Malcolm Gladwell said it in Outliers, and I'll say it again: It takes time to achieve expertise. To be precise, it takes about 10,000 hours of practice to become a true proficient. This is no small investment of your life energy.

As such, it pays to spend time thinking about the kinds of opportunities you want to prepare yourself for.

However, it's worth noting that many a short-program snafu has turned into long-program gold. As sports writer Robin Ritoss notes, "The short program has long been seen as where competitions have been lost—not won." In other words: Most of the world will see a stumble as a reason for you to give up.

You can choose see a screw-up as a reason to hope, an opportunity to grow. The best skaters take a fall and keep going with a smile. They have the ability to consider the audience perspective.

It's tough to smile right after you've made a mistake, but think of it this way: Is there anything an audience loves better than a good comeback? As author Mark Batterson writes, "Our best days often start out as our worst days. And our greatest opportunities are often disguised as our biggest problems."
