9. David L. Calhoun 大卫·卡尔霍恩

商人,2005年5月13日毕业于弗吉尼亚理工大学

I worked for a guy named Jack Welch for twenty years at GE. He was, and is, a great mentor as much as a great leader. If I had to isolate the subject he spoke most passionately to me about, over all those years, it is that SELF CONFIDENCE is the most important, the indispensable characteristic of success, the common characteristic shared by great leaders whose talents may have varied widely in most other respects.So, how do you get it? What is the secret to developing your own brand of self-confidence?First, you must resolve to grow intellectually, morally, technically, and professionally every day through your entire work and family life. You need to ask yourself every day: Am I really up to speed or falling behind? Am I still learning? Or am I just doing the same stuff on a different day or as Otis Redding sings, “Sitting on the dock of the bay... watching the tide roll away?”The lust for learning is age-independent.Another important way to build your confidence is to seek out the toughest jobs, the most daunting scientific, engineering or management challenges。

我在通用公司为一个名叫杰克·韦尔奇的家伙工作了20年。他既是一位伟大的领导者,也是一位伟大的导师,过去是,现在也是。如果我必须找出那些年里他充满激情地对我说的最主要的话,那就是:自信是最重要的,它是成功必不可少的,是所有在其他多数方面才能也许大相径庭的伟大领导者的共同特征。如何获得自信?培养你特有的自信的秘诀是什么?首先,你必须下决心每天都通过你的工作和家庭生活去获得智力、道德、技术与专业上的提高。你需要每天问自己:我是在加速前进还是在后退?我还在学习吗?我是在每天重复做同样的事情或就像奥蒂斯·瑞汀所唱的那样,“坐在海湾的码头上,看潮起潮落”?对学习的渴望是不受年龄限制的。培养自信的另一个重要途径是寻找最难做的工作,最棘手的科学、工程或管理方面的难题。

10. Marc S. Lewis 马克·刘易斯

临床心理学教授,2000年5月19日毕业于得克萨斯大学奥斯汀分校

There are times when you are going to do well, and times when you're going to fail. But neither the doing well, nor the failure is the measure of success. The measure of success is what you think about what you've done. Let me put that another way: The way to be happy is to like yourself and the way to like yourself is to do only things that make you proud.There's that old joke, not very funny, that goes, “No matter where you go, there you are。” That's true. The person who you're with most in life is yourself and if you don't like yourself you're always with somebody you don't like。

有时候你会干得很漂亮,有时候你会失败,但二者都不是衡量成功的标准。衡量成功的标准是你自己对你的所为怎么看。让我换一句话说:让自己幸福的办法是喜欢你自己,喜欢自己的办法是只做让你自己感到骄傲的事情。有一个老笑话,不是很好笑,它是这么说的:“无论你走到哪里,你都在那里。”这是真的。你一生中跟你在一起最多的人是你自己,如果你不喜欢你自己,那你就会总是跟你不喜欢的人在一起。
