心灵鸡汤

记得很多年前,个人主页方兴未艾之时,总有一个页面为“自我介绍”,从血型星座到喜欢的书颜色当然也少不了横渠四句。但认识自我的探索不能老是停留在这一层面上,还需要不断地深入下去。

以下课文选自今年3月的《彭蒙惠英语》,说是要能继续有滋有味的生活下去,就得重燃自己的兴奋点。

1. If money were no object, what would I do all day?

Would you write, teach scuba diving, give dating advice? Work that you would do for free strongly implies what activities you enjoy most and what probably comes pretty easily to you.

《彭蒙惠英语》的一位老师说愿意免费做导游,这真是个吸引人的好主意。我还喜欢当图书管理员,天天与书为伍。

2. If I could be anyone for a week, who would it be?

Who we admire is a huge indicator of who we secretly would like to become. Review who you obsess over, it’s a bright, shining clue.

几个老师都说不想做总统或大公司的CEO,我倒是蛮想体验一下。因为从间接经验来看,我以为绝大多数的工种只要是正常人+至多半年的岗位培训都能达到合格水平。如果有机会真想能验证这一假设。

3. What conversation topic can I get lost in for hours?

Real estate, investing, travel, animals, cars, fashion, fitness? Your most dominant chat topics are a vital sign of what excites you.

 书评。

4. If I walk into a bookstore, which section am I drawn to?

This also applies to an online search or even your preference for websites and blogs. What types of information do you most love to consume? What sites have your bookmarked? Which types of writers sit on your bookshelf?

我喜欢的类型太多,几乎不碰的只有一种——“人物传记”。好像也只买过一本荣格自传,即便连陪伴多年的阿加莎克里斯蒂,也没想去认识。

5. Who do I love to spend time with and why?

Do you like analytical thinkers, creative people, entrepreneurs, artists? Often we are drawn to people like us. Who are your preferred friends – the ones who most energise you?

彭蒙惠老师说‘positive person’,我也很想啊,可惜自己是“半杯空”型,志同道合的也只能是‘negative person’.

6. If you asked my partner/mother/best friend what I’m best at doing, what would they say?

Would there be a common thread throughout the answers? Are you a great motivator? An incredible listener? An organiser? A storyteller? A go-getter in business? An explorer? Let people who you love and trust tell you who you are. It’s an eye-opening and fun experiment – and a confidence boost.

持之以恒。不是么?我到现在还在听《彭蒙惠英语》。

7. Who was I as a kid?

Let your inner child  resurface in your thoughts. Look at a childhood photo of yourself. If you were true to this person, what would you be doing to make sure you don’t let him or her down?

和老师们想的一样,这个问题好没意思。

8. What do people come to me for?

Resume advice, helping to fix things at home, interior design tips? This can point you toward the gifts and talents that you might not recognise in yourself.

老早被问的最多的哪里有优惠活动,诸如电影、书讯、美术馆、音乐会(那时候艺术场馆还都要收费的),以及各种打折卡。现在集中在留学(小学->大学),语言,中国人文地理。

9. What do I feel least insecure about?

We are inordinately hard on ourselves. We’re quick to point out our flaws and have a much harder time recognising our skills. Allow yourself to remember past accomplishments or times where you’ve really helped others. Let the parts of you that you might secretly feel proud of truly shine.

自我表扬还是很不好意思啊。

10. What’s pure and simple fun for me?

What do you love to do that you are really good at and can be paid for?

写书评。

11. If I had to write a book, what would it be about?

Don’t panic – you don’t have to write one! But if you did, what might it be about? I love asking people this random question. I hear so many answers from sailing to writing vegan recipes to helping people with PTSD heal through music.

我想写的东西太多,不过最想的仍然是侦探书,但它属于fiction,课文要求的该是non-fiction。
