積極態度、勇氣及堅持

January 29, 2012 Original English Version: “Positivity, Courage & Persistence” (中文譯文: Tsui Tik Wei) 我最近在看的其中一本書名為《挫折的力量》(“The Flipside”) *。書中所有故事的主角都受了嚴重創傷或打擊,但他們都能扭轉劣勢,轉危為機,甚至在人生或事業中找到重大突破。 好了吧,書的語調很積極,對某些人來說甚至是太老套或正面,因為當中很多故事的主角都遇上了嚴重交通意外,要把腳截除,但他們仍能過上豐盛的人生,擁有成功的事業。 當然,不是所有人都有力量堅持下去,並有這些成就。但也有些故事只是簡簡單單地讓你看到挫折的另一面。 *** 莎士比亞:「並沒好與壞,只看你怎樣想。」 一個讓我印象尤其深刻的簡單故事是玫瑰花商的故事。一個花商本打算栽種新鮮玫瑰來為她國家的花店供貨,因為她看到很少人在做這樣的生意,這是一個很大的商機,但她種出來的第一批玫瑰生了病,所以不能賣。 發生這樣的事時,人們通常會想,「我完了。現在只有死了的玫瑰,我要賣的可是新鮮的玫瑰,我能怎樣做呢?」 這個花商就看到挫折的另一面。她去做了詳細的研究,發現有一個龐大的乾花瓣製造業還沒有甚麼人著手發展,但正在形成(乾花瓣在婚禮和各式活動中需求漸增)。不用說,憑著她渴望開創新事業所付出的不懈努力,這個花商的生意出現了轉機,發展順利,成為國內的成功企業。 「人生中的每個挫折,每個創傷,都有兩面,但要是特別的人才能找到那另一面。」 […]
