小编摘要:机遇就像机票,它是可以预定的!

Many people believe that material success is the result of favorable "breaks." There is an element of ground for the belief, but those depending entirely upon luck, are nearly always disappointed, because they overlook another important factor which must be present before one can be sure of success. It is the knowledge with which favorable "breaks" can be made to order.

During the depression, W. C. Fields, the comedian, lost all his money, and found himself without income, without a job, and his means of earning a living (vaudeville) no longer existed. Moreover, he was past sixty, when many men consider themselves "old." He was so eager to stage a comeback that he offered to work without pay, in a new field (movies). In addition to his other troubles, he fell and injured his neck. To many that would have been the place to give up and QUIT. But Fields was PERSISTENT. He knew that if he carried on he would get the "breaks" sooner or later, and he did get them, but not by chance.

Marie Dressler found herself down and out, with her money gone, with no job, when she was about sixty. She, too, went after the "breaks," and got them. Her PERSISTENCE brought an astounding triumph late in life, long beyond the age when most men and women are done with ambition to achieve.

Eddie Cantor lost his money in the 1929 stock crash, but he still had his PERSISTENCE and his courage. With these, plus two prominent eyes, he exploited himself back into an income of $10,000 a week! Verily, if one has PERSISTENCE, one can get along very well without many other qualities.

The only "break" anyone can afford to rely upon is a self-made "break." These come through the application of PERSISTENCE. The starting point is DEFINITENESS OF PURPOSE.

Examine the first hundred people you meet, ask them what they want most in life, and ninety eight of them will not be able to tell you. If you press them for an answer, some will say— SECURITY, many will say— MONEY, a few will say— HAPPINESS, others will say— FAME AND POWER, and still others will say— SOCIAL RECOGNITION, EASE IN LIVING, ABILITY TO SING, DANCE, or WRITE, but none of them will be able to define these terms, or give the slightest indication of a PLAN by which they hope to attain these vaguely expressed wishes. Riches do not respond to wishes. They respond only to definite plans, backed by definite desires, through constant PERSISTENCE.


许多人相信物质上的成功是机遇的结果,这有一定的道理。但是完全依赖运气的人,则最终要失望。因为他们忽视了一个重要的因素,一个人要成功必须具备的因素,那就是:机遇是要预订的。

在经济危机时期,喜剧演员W·C·菲伍德丧失了他的储蓄,没有工作也没有收入,而他以前赖以生活的赚钱方式--轻松喜剧,已不再管用。而且他的年龄已经超过了60 岁,许多人在这个年龄都已经自认为老了。但他渴望东山再起,想在一个新的事业领域(电影)中找一份工作。然而祸不单行,他又跌了一跤,伤了脖子。多数人到了这种地步已经是万念俱灰了,菲伍德却不屈服。他知道只要坚持下去,机遇就迟早会来到。结果,他真的得到了运气。

玛丽·屈丝勒在将近60 岁的时候,发现自己垮了,身无分文又没有工作。于是她寻找机遇,终于凭借其毅力在晚年得到了惊人的成功,尽管她的年龄要比别人大得多。

艾迪·康泰在1929 年的股票危机中倾家荡产,但他依靠自己的毅力和勇气得到了每周1 万美元的工作!真的,一个人如果有不屈不挠的精神,即使有其他方面的不足,也将能过上好日子。

因此世界上所有的机遇,都是靠自己的努力得到的。这种机遇需要有明确的目标和顽强的毅力。
