苹果CEO 库克毕业演讲激励学生面对困难无所畏惧

拓维留学   2016-07-08

苹果公司CEO Tim Cook于17日出席乔治华盛顿大学的毕业典礼,发表了主题为《总会有人改变世界——这个人可能就是你》指乔布斯改变其一生。他在演讲中勉励毕业生,要寻找自己的"北极星",指引人生的路向及正确的人生观,面对困难不应退缩。

他在演讲中勉励毕业生,要寻找自己的"北极星",指引人生的路向及正确的人生观,面对困难不应退缩。开场的时候,库克不忘为自家手机做广告,开玩笑称:"如果你用的是iPhone,就将它调成静音模式,如果你用的不是iPhone,请将它放到中间走道上,苹果有世界级的手机回收项目。"

Those of you with an iPhone, just place it in silent mode. If you don't have an iPhone, please pass it to the center aisle. Apple has a world-class recycling program.

在聊人生目标时,他认为,年轻人要寻找人生的"North Star(北极星)",为自己以后的人生、价值观指引出正确的路向。而发掘自己、自我启发、再改造自己的过程非常重要。

For you graduates, the process of discovering yourself, of inventing yourself, of reinventing yourself is about to begin in earnest. It's about finding your values and committing to live by them. You have to find your North Star. And that means choices. Some are easy. Some are hard. And some will make you question everything.

库克说,他有两颗启发他人生的北极星,第一颗"北极星"是对抗种族歧视的马丁·路德·金,令他找到对的价值观,令他明白只要坚持自己的信念,坚持自己认为对的事,终可以改变世界。

另一个启发他的就是苹果教主乔布斯。他形容乔布斯是一个理想主义的人,改变了他的一生。第一次见面时,乔布斯说服他努力工作制作好产品,可以改变世界。他从容的接受这份工作,至今17年,从未回头。

He was an idealist. And in that way he reminded me of how I felt as a teenager. In that first meeting he convinced me if we worked hard and made great products, we too could help change the world. I took the job and changed my life. It's been 17 years and I have never once looked back.

库克聊工作时,勉励毕业生们在匆匆的人生道路中,要找到工作的意义,当觅得正确路向,工作便会有新的意义。否则,工作就只是工作,人生太短,不应如此。

Graduates, your values matter. They are your North Star. And work takes on new meaning when you feel you are pointed in the right direction. Otherwise, it's just a job, and life is too short for that.

他叮嘱学生说,人生不能只是坐在台下,世界需要你们登上竞技场,解决问题,制止不公义。世界需要年轻人的能量及热情。并鼓励了年轻人,面对困难不要退缩,走出世俗眼光。

The sidelines are not where you want to live your life. The world needs you in the arena. There are problems that need to be solved. Injustices that need to be ended. People that are still being persecuted, diseases still in need of cure. No matter what you do next, the world needs your energy. Your passion. Your impatience with progress.Don't shrink from risk. And tune out those critics and cynics. History rarely yields to one person — but think, and never forget, what happens when it does. That can be you. That should be you. That must be you.
