Attitude is foundational to success. A generous person with a positive attitude will thrive. If you change your attitude, you change your perception, change your actions, and change your life. As every life changes, you change the world. Over at Lorelle On Wordpress she challenges bloggers to create a list of 30 things that can each be done in only 30 seconds. Imagine if millions or billions of people each did one of these-how would the world be different? In keeping with the theme of personal development, I have put together ways to improve yourself or others and create a better you in 30 seconds or less. Imagine if everyone did just a few of these at once? Here is my list.

态度是成功的基石。一个人如果既乐于分享,又态度积极,则其前途不可限量。如果你改变了你的态度,就等于改变了你对事物的理解,改变了你的行动,随之将改变你的生活。当每一个人的生命发生变化时,你就改变了世界。在Wordpress上写博客的Lorelle挑战众博客写作者们列出一个包含30件可以在 30秒钟内完成的事情清单。试想一下,如果成百万甚至上亿的人们仅仅做了其中的一件,世界将会有多么大的不一样!延续我的博客推动个人成长的主题,我集中了一些你可以在30秒或更少的时间内完成来完善自己或他人的事情。设想一下每个人立刻做了其中的一些事情会如何。清单如下:

1. Change your tone of voice.For 30 seconds, speak softer, calmer, or just more pleasantly. You might be surprised at the results. Did you know, for example, that a softer voice giving clear instructions commands more authority with children than a yell? If frustrated in a business dealing, try a more peaceful tone, even if only for 30 seconds, and see if it leads to a quicker resolution.

改变你的语气。只用30秒,使用更柔和、更冷静的语气,或是任何一种听上去更舒服的说话方式。你也许会为所发生的一切感到惊讶。比如,你是否了解,在孩子们的心目中,用柔和的声调给出清楚的指示比大吼大叫更能让你获得威严。如果在一次商业交易中出师不利,可以尝试在接下来的30秒内使用更平和的语调,然后观察这能否促使事情更快地得到解决。

2. Choose one idea you gave up and re-visit it. For 30 seconds, consider giving it one more try. Was there an invention, a project, or some task that just seemed too daunting or frustrating? Choose one and decide to try it one more time. Imagine if everyone mustered up the courage to use their God-given ingenuity in whatever their giftings. What new things would the world see created?

选择一个你已经放弃的想法,然后重新思考它。用30秒的时间考虑再试一次。是否曾经有一项发明,一个项目,或是某些任务令人望而生畏,或是让人沮丧?选择其中一个,然后再次捡起它。想想看,如果每个人都鼓足勇气,在自己具备才能的方面充分运用了上天赋予的创造力,将会给这个世界带来多少新的东西?

3. For 30 seconds, give someone another chance. Listen for just one more time, re-evaluate a first impression, or give one more opportunity to see if they have changed. You may be surprised.

用30秒钟,给他人一次机会。也许只需要再倾听一遍,重新调整一下第一印象,或是再用一次机会去发现他们是否已经作出改变。你会感到惊奇的。

4. Tell your children “I love you” or “I am proud of you”. Make it meaningful, look them in the eye, and show how you value them. It will mean the world. Imagine if every parent said affirming words to every child, for 30 seconds, everyday.

告诉你的孩子们"我爱你"或"我为你感到骄傲"。让这样的表达成为一次有意义的事件,看着他们的眼睛,让他们知道他们对你来说有多么重要。这样做将意义非凡。想想如果所有的父母每天花30秒的时间对他们的孩子们说一些肯定的话,世界将会如何。

5. The next time you find yourself wanting instant gratification, impatiently wanting something you cannot have at that moment, give thanks to God for what you already do have for 30 seconds. It may change your attitude.

下次你再发现自己在急切等待他人对你的肯定,而又不可能立即拥有的时候,用30秒来为你已经完成的事情感谢上帝。这能迅速改变你的态度。

6. For 30 seconds, stand up straighter and with your head held high. Look others in the eye and walk with confidence. See how great it feels?

用30秒,站得更直,将你的头高高抬起。直视他人,自信地行走。有没有发现这样感觉非常棒?

7. Choose one thing you were putting off for another time that could be done today, and decide to do it! It only takes 30 seconds to make a decision to act. Be sure you value keeping your promise to yourself, and then know that this will lead to action.

选择一件你一直在拖延着准备下次再做而今天可以完成的事情,决定完成它!做出一个行动的决定只需要30秒。前提必须是你十分看重对自己的承诺,并且一旦承诺则意味着付出行动。

8. Clean up someone else's mess.

清理一次他人惹下的乱子。

9. Compliment someone with a genuine comment on what you appreciate or respect about them.

对他人就你一直欣赏或敬重的某一点表示真诚的赞美。

10. Stand up for someone or something you believe in. A quick sentence of support can do wonders and expand your influence.

为你信仰的某人或某事挺身而出。一句简短的表示支持的话会带来奇迹,迅速扩大你的影响。

11. Find a way to authentically encourage someone in their efforts with a “you can do it!” comment. Believe in them and show it.

为他人所做的努力表示一次真诚的鼓励。告诉他,"你可以做到的",信任他并且用行动来表达这份信任。

12. Invite someone over (or a group of someones) that you would like to get to know: set a specific time and day for a dinner together. The world could use more socializing. What about you? Take the initiative and make the invitation to a new friendship.

邀请某个你愿意了解的人(或一群人)到家中做客。定一个具体的日子和时刻和他/他们共进晚餐。适度的社交是必要的,你还在等待什么呢?采取主动,发出邀请,也意味着打开一扇新的友谊之门。

13. Give your spouse a physical sign of affection for 30 seconds in public. Brush your hand softly on her cheek, run your fingers through his hair, give a soft hug, a gentle squeeze of the hand, or a quick kiss. It is good for children to see their parents comfortable with quick displays of affection, and great for strengthening intimacy in marriage. Imagine how closeness might grow in marriages if every couple deliberately showed affection for 30 seconds? Better yet, do it several times a day.

在公共场所花30秒对你的伴侣用肢体表达爱意。用手轻轻的摩挲她的面颊,用手指抚弄他的头发,来一个轻轻的拥抱,温柔的握紧他的手,或是一个蜻蜓点水的吻。让孩子们看到父母很自然的迅速表达爱意是有益的。这样也能加强婚姻的亲密感。试想一下如果每一对伴侣都用30秒的时间来有意识的表达爱意,会对婚姻中亲密感的增强有多么大的作用。如果能一天做几次就更好了

14. Learn 1 new word (preferably from a different language than you already know) or learn a quick and wonderful fact about another culture or country.

学会一个新单词(最好从一种你不会的语言中学习)或是迅速的了解与另外一种文化或国家有关的一件神奇的事情。

15. Write a check for 10% of your monthly income and place it in the mailbox. Send it to your church, a charity, or a worthy cause, but give it away.

写下一张面值为你月薪10%的支票。然后放进邮箱,寄给你所在地区的教堂,捐给慈善机构,或是为其它有价值的事业。总之,捐献出去。

16. Pray every morning for 30 seconds to conquer your fear and courageously face all your opportunities, keep your mind open in setting goals and keep your attitude positive. Quickly judge your plan for the day against your priorities (be sure your choices fit with your focus- remember in business and for your family, time is one of your most valuable assets). After the 30 seconds, you may be inspired to make a change.

每天早晨祈祷30秒,以克服恐惧,或是获得勇气去面对你的所有机会。在树立目标的时候保持心胸开阔,态度要积极。以优先级标准迅速的判断你当天的计划(须保证你的选择与你的重点相符-记住无论在职场还是家中,时间都是你最宝贵的资产). 30秒之后,你也许已经获得激励去做一些改变。

17. Ask someone “how are you doing?” and then be ready to truly listen.

问候一个人"你最近怎样",然后真诚的聆听。

18. Put in an envelope (or or 0), write “from anonymous”, and secretly (and quickly, to fit in 30 seconds) leave it with someone you know could use it. Doing good deeds without public recognition feels great.. Try it and see!

将20美元(50美元或100美元也行)放在一个信封里,写上"来自无名氏"。然后悄悄地(当然,也要迅速地,以保持30秒的纪录)放在你知道需要它的人那里。私下里做一些善意的小事感觉很棒!不信可以试试看。

19. Do something quick for the environment: refuse food in styrofoam, tear apart those plastic things that go around cans and choke birds, or help an animal in distress break free, etc.

迅速的做一些对环境有保护的事情:拒绝装在聚乙烯泡沫盒里的食物,撕开罐头外围的塑料包装,或是帮助一只被困的小动物重获自由等等。

21. If you have been indoors, get out and feel the sunshine on your face for 30 seconds- it will elevate your mood quickly (if it is 100 degrees outside then feel the sunshine from a more comfortable temperature if possible).

如果你一直待在室内,走出去,感受30秒阳光照在脸上的感觉——这会让你的心情立刻变得好起来(如果外面的气温高达100摄氏度,那么在一个更适宜的温度下去感受阳光)

22. Say yes to giving a charitable donation at your local merchant when asked (give one more time than you had planned to give).

如果一个当地的商店请求你做一次慈善捐助时表示同意。(多给一个人一些时间,虽然你本来并不打算如此)
