  Happiness Is A Journey

  幸福之根本,是通往幸福路上的旅途

  Many people think that when they become rich and successful, happiness will naturally follow. Let me tell you that nothing is further from the truth. The world is full of very rich people who are as miserable as if they were living in hell. We have read stories about movie stars who committed suicide or died from drugs. Quite clearly, money is not the only answer to all problems. Wealth obtained through dishonest means does not bring happiness. Lottery winnings do not bring happiness. Gamble winnings do not bring happiness.

  许多人认为当他们富有,取得成功时,幸福自然就会随之而来。我告诉你:事实并非如此。世界上有很多富人,但是他们却很痛苦,犹如生活在地狱中。我们都读过影星自杀或死于吸毒的故事。显而易见,钱不是解决所有问题的答案。通过不正当手段获得的财富并不能带来幸福。抽到奖券也不会带来幸福;赌博也不会带给你幸福。

  To my mind, the secret to happiness lies in your successful work. There is no use saying in your contribution towards others' happiness and in your wealth you have earned through your own honest effort. If you obtain wealth through luck or dishonest means, you will know that it is ill earned money. If you get your money by taking advantage of others or by hurting others, you will not be happy with it. You will think you are a base person. Long-term happiness is based on honesty, productive work, contribution, and self-esteem.

  在我看来,幸福的秘密在于要有成功的工作。通过带给别人幸福和诚实的努力而获得的幸福才是真正的幸福。如果你是通过运气或是不诚实的手段而获得钱财,你会知道那并不是辛苦挣来的钱;如果通过利用别人或是伤害别人而获得钱财,你不会因此高兴。你会认为自己是个卑鄙的人。长期的幸福是建立在诚实,有成果的工作,贡献和自尊的基石上的。

  One of my favorite quotes comes from Alfred Souza. He said, "for a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life."

  我最看中一段尔弗雷德·苏泽说过的话。他说“一直以来,我感觉的是真正的生活就要来了。但是在前面总有些东西拦在那里,一些问题必须先被搞定后才能进行下一项,比如未完成的工作,等着轮到自己的那段时间、等待着交钱的账单。当这些事解决后你才能开始自己的一天。后来我才觉悟到解决这些生活琐事的时候就是我的人生。”

  This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment that you have.

  这样的想法使我认识到,幸福是没有方式去追求寻找的。因为寻找幸福的过程本身就是幸福。所以珍惜你所拥有的点点滴滴.

  Happiness is a journey, not a destination. So, work like you don't need money, love like you've never been hurt, and dance like no one's watching.

  寻找幸福的过程本身就是幸福,这条路上没有终点站。那么,你就要像不愁薪水那般去工作;敞开心扉那般去深爱;旁若无人般去歌舞。
