经典名人英语演讲稿51:成为我们的最伟大一代!(通用电气CEO杰夫·伊梅尔特2007年圣母大学毕业典礼演讲) mp3

51. To Be Our Great Generations!

51. 成为我们的最伟大一代!

When I graduated from college, high oil prices had pushed the economy into recession. Jobs were hard to find and unemployment was over 10%. There was unrest in the Middle East. Americans were being held hostage in Iran. Some of these things may sound familiar.

我大学毕业的时候,油价很高,经济很不景气。人们找不到工作,失业率高达百分之十几。中东地区动乱,美国人在伊朗被挟持作为人质。这一切似乎还历历在目。

But solving these problems is your great opportunity. In this country, the next generation is always the Greatest Generation. Americans always have a sense that the future will be better than the past. The key to the American soul is optimism.

但是,社会有各种负面问题,正好为你们提供了施展才能的机会。在这个国家里,下一代往往是最伟大的一代。美国人总是认为,明天一定会比过去好,因为美国人的精神就是乐观。

Today, the people in the communities you will be joining are apprehensive. They worry about the war, their pension, the environment, or their children’s education. They want to be led. But they want a different kind of leader.

如今,社区里的人们都很焦虑不安。他们担心战争,担心自己的退休金,忧虑环境问题,忧虑孩子的教育问题。他们渴望被引导,但是必须是一个与众不同的领导者。

They crave people who have the courage to take crave on tough problems the determination to build long-term on, solutions, and compassion to bring people with them. You, must appeal to their optimism and not their fear.

这个领导者必须具备面对棘手难题的勇气,建立长期解决方案的决心,同时还要有同情怜悯之心,能成为带领大家的中心。因此,你们必须激发他们的乐观精神,而非恐惧之心。

To do that you must be both great and good. We need, you to compete to be your best, while maintaining your authenticity and sense of service. Your life journey should have three principles:

要想做到这样,你们首先妾有能力,再者要仁慈。你们需要通过竞争让自己变得最棒,同时还要保持真我和服务意识。你的人生旅程需要遵循以下三个原则:

Live with passion.

富有激情地去生活!

Live with purpose.

有目的地去生活!

Live for others.

为他人去生活!

People are afraid. They need new leaders. the energy and optimism from you to triumph over the cynics. They need you to be Our Greatest Generation.

人们都心有惧怕。他们需要新的领导者。他们需要你们给他们带来能量,带来乐观精神,去战胜愤世嫉俗。他们需要你们成为最伟大的一代!
