當地時間5月31日,脫口秀女王奧普拉·溫弗瑞(Oprah Winfrey) 在哈佛的畢業典禮上為畢業生們獻上了一場精彩勵志演講。"There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction."

"Oh my goodness! I'm at Haaaaaarvard!" That's how Oprah Winfrey began her speech at Harvard University graduation ceremony—in her spirited, signature way. Winfrey also received an honorary Doctor of Law degree from the university before taking to the podium?!癘MG,我竟然在哈……佛!”奧普拉·溫弗瑞以這樣富有

激情的標志性方式開始了自己在哈佛大學畢業典禮上的演講。上臺前,她還獲得了哈佛大學授予的榮譽法學博士學位。

Winfrey had plenty of inspiring words for the Class of 2013, and also touched on political issues like gun control, immigration, and public education. But the media mogul spent most of her 30-minute speech advising the new graduates on how best to navigate the next chapter of their lives. "My one hope today is that I can be a source of some inspiration," she said. "I'm going to address my remarks to anybody who's ever felt inferior, disadvantaged or screwed by life."溫弗瑞用了許多勵志的話語鼓勵這批2013年畢業的學生,偶爾也談到槍支管制、移民[微博]、公共教育等一些政治話題。但是在30分鐘左右的演講里,這位傳媒大亨大部分時間都在告訴剛剛畢業的學生們如何走好人生的下一段征程?!拔医裉煊袀€心愿,就是能帶給你們一些鼓舞,”她說,“我將要說的這些話獻給所有曾感到卑微、弱勢或生活一片狼藉的人?!?/p>

Four most inspiring quotes from Winfrey's speech溫弗瑞演講中4條最勵志的語錄

1. On the good that came come from failure。談失敗的好處

"It doesn't matter how far you might rise. At some point, you are bound to stumble. If you're constantly pushing yourself higher and higher, the law of averages predicts that you will at some point fall. And when you do, I want you to remember this: There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction. Now, when you're down there in the hole, it looks like failure. When that moment comes, it's okay to feel bad for a little while. Give yourself time to mourn what you think you may have lost. But then, here's the key: Learn from every mistake, because every experience, particularly your mistakes, are there to teach you and force you into being more who you are."

There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction。世間并不存在“失敗”,那不過是生活想讓我們換條道走走罷了。

Learn from every mistake, because every experience, particularly your mistakes, are there to teach you and force you into being more who you are。要從錯誤中吸取教訓,因為你的每一次經歷、尤其是你犯下的錯誤,都將幫助你、推動你更好地做自己。

2. On her own biggest personal failure。談自身最大的失敗

"The Oprah Winfrey Show was number one in our spot for 21 years, and I have to tell you, I became pretty comfortable with that level of success. But a couple of years ago, I decided, as you will at some point, that it was time to recalculate, find new territory, and break new ground. So I ended the show and launched OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network. One year later, after launching OWN, nearly every media outlet had proclaimed that my new venture was a flop ... I can still remember the day I opened up USA Today and read the headline, 'Oprah: Not Quite Standing On Her OWN' ... It really was the worst period in my professional life. I was stressed and I was frustrated, and quite frankly, I was embarrassed ... Then the words came to me, 'trouble don't last always,' from an old hymn. This too shall pass. And I thought, I am going to turn this thing around and I will be better for it. And I am here to tell you that I have turned that network around."

Then the words came to me, 'trouble don't last always,' from an old hymn. This too shall pass. And I thought, I am going to turn this thing around and I will be better for it。我突然想到某首古老贊美詩中的一句話:“困難只是暫時的”,我遇到的麻煩同樣會有結束的一天。然后我想,我會將這一頁翻過去,我會好起來的。

3. On the common thread of all the interviews she's conducted during her career。談職業生涯所做訪談的共同性

"The single most important lesson I learned in 25 years talking every single day to people, was that there's a common denominator in our human experience. The common denominator I found in every single interview is we want to be validated. We want to be understood. I've done over 35,000 interviews in my career. And as soon as that camera shuts off, and inevitably in their own way, everyone asks this question: 'Was that okay?' I heard it from President Bush, I heard it from President Obama, I've heard it from heroes and from housewives, I've heard it from victims and perpetrators of crimes. I even heard it from Beyonce in all her Beyonce-ness ... They all want to know: 'Was that okay? Did you hear me? Did you see me? Did what I said mean anything to you?'"

The common denominator I found in every single interview is we want to be validated. We want to be understood。我發現,我所有的訪談有一個共同性,那就是人人都希望自己被認可、被理解。

They all want to know: 'Was that okay? Did you hear me? Did you see me? Did what I said mean anything to you?'我的采訪對象都想知道:“我的表現OK嗎?你聽到我看到我嗎?我說的話對你有價值嗎?”

4. On the key to success and happiness。談成功和快樂的關鍵

"You will find true success and happiness if you have only one goal. There really is only one, and that is this: To fulfill the highest, most truthful expression of yourself as a human being. You want to max out your humanity by using your energy to lift yourself up, your family, and the people around you. Theologian Howard Thurman said it best. He said, 'Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.'"

You will find true success and happiness if you have only one goal. There really is only one, and that is this: To fulfill the highest, most truthful expression of yourself as a human being。如果你只認準一個目標,那你就能獲得真正的成功和快樂。人生確實只有一個目標,那就是:最大程度地、最真實地展現自己。

'Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.'“不要問自己世界需要什么,問問是什么讓你充滿活力地活著,然后就去做,因為世界所需要的就是一個個朝氣蓬勃的人?!?/p>
