新概念英语第三册Lesson34中的那位Frank Halliday童鞋真是太幸运了,竟然在古玩店里用低价买到了Correggio价值连城的画作。很多人可能会说:哎呀,我是不会有他那么幸运的啦~机会是给有准备的人的!文化大爆炸教你十招变幸运,态度决定命运哦!

Expect to Be a Winner 有成功的信念

The first step to a winning attitude is to expect to win.
拥有成功心态的第一步就是:你必须要想赢。

For example, if you have a job interview, imagine that you've already gotten the job. You'll find yourself less nervous, more confident and performing better in the interview, making it more likely that you'll actually get a job offer.
举个例子:你要参加一个工作的面试,要是你假想自己已经得到了那份工作,你一定会发现自己不那么紧张,更自信,在面试中表现得更好。这样子的话你真正得到那份工作的机会就大大增加咯!

Making Time for Yourself 享受单独的时光

Lucky people tend to listen to their intuition, which helps them to avoid bad situations and maximize good opportunities.
幸运的人常常凭自己的直觉做事,这反而使得他们避开一些坏的情况并把好机会最大化。

You can develop your intuition by taking some quiet time for yourself, when you can think and reflect. Meditation, long bubble baths, walks in the woods, fishing, and prayer are just a few of the pastimes that can give you time for quiet contemplation.
你可以花一些时间来安静地独自思考,这可以提高自己的直觉。 比如说冥想,泡个悠闲的澡,在树林里散步,祷告,这些都是你可以在独自思考时做的事。

Look for the Silver Lining 看到事物的闪光点

Unlucky people have the same amount of bad luck that lucky people do. The difference is that lucky people tend to find ways to turn bad luck to their favor.
其实,幸运的人和不幸运的人会遇到同样数量的倒霉事。而区别在于,幸运的人有办法把倒霉的事看做是好事。

Take an example of someone who trips on the sidewalk and twists her ankle. An unlucky person would probably take that as an example of yet another piece of bad luck. A lucky person would probably say that it shows how lucky she is that she didn't break her ankle or worse.
如果有一个人被路边台阶绊倒了,扭伤了自己的脚踝。不幸运的人可能会想这又是一桩倒霉事儿,而幸运的人可能会觉得她太幸运了自己的脚踝竟然没有骨折或伤得更重。

Let Bad Luck Slide Off You 让霉运绕过你

Another difference in the ways that lucky and unlucky people handle bad luck is that lucky people think that bad luck is only temporary, whereas unlucky people think that they are doomed to more bad luck. Remind yourself that good luck always follows bad.
另一个幸运者和不幸运者处理霉运的不同点是:幸运者相信霉运只是一时的,然而不幸运者觉得他们是命中注定要倒霉的。时时提醒自己,好运会在霉运之后到来。

Try New Things 尝试新事物

There's a saying that the definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. If you want to improve your luck, you should try new experiences and see how you like them. Everything new that you try is a new opportunity to become luckier.
关于愚蠢的行为有这样一个定义:重复做着同样的事还希望结果会不同。如果你想变得更幸运的话,你应该尝试一些新的事物来看看你是否会喜欢它们。所有你尝试过的新事物都可能是让你变得更幸运的机会。

Be Alert for New Opportunities 重视新机会

Some people get so focused on the task at hand that they totally fail to see the lucky opportunities around them. There was an experiment. People were asked to flip through a newspaper and count the number of pictures in the paper. The people were so intent on counting the pictures that they failed to notice a full-page ad saying that if they mentioned it to the researcher, they'd get cash on the spot.
有些人太注重眼前的事物而完全忘记了观察在自己周围的幸运机会。 有这么一个实验,参加试验的人们被要求浏览一份报纸,然后计算报纸中出现的图片数量。人们由于过于专注计算图片的数量而忽略了一个占了一整版的广告。广告上说:如果你告诉测试人员你看到了这个广告,你将会当场得到现金的奖励。

Take Steps to Improve Your Life 为更好的生活做出努力

Unlucky people tend to blame their unhappiness on bad luck. Lucky people take active steps to improve their situation. No matter how unlucky you feel, there are always things that you can do to improve your situation.
不幸运的人常常把自己的不幸归结于坏运气。幸运的人则会为了让情况变得更好而做出努力。不管你觉得自己有多倒霉,总是会有办法来改善情况的。

Reject Superstitions 不搞迷信

It may seem funny to slam superstitions in an article about improving luck, but the fact is that many people rely on superstitions instead of taking steps to improve their lives. Lucky people don't rely on superstition, but rather on working smarter.
通过抨击迷信行为来提高幸运度可能显得有些可笑,但是事实是很多人不愿为改善生活做出努力,而是诉诸于迷信。幸运的人不会依赖迷信,而是试着更工作得更有智慧。

Let Go of Your Anxieties 远离焦虑

Unlucky people often have trouble letting go of the things that worry them. They spend so much time worrying that they lose sleep and spend a lot of time anxious and nervous. That level of anxiety saps energy and makes it difficult to be effective.
不幸运的人通常不擅长于摆脱忧虑情绪。他们花费太多的时间来担忧,这导致了失眠和长时间的焦虑和紧张。这样程度的焦虑会耗尽你的能量,还会让你的效率下降。

Live in the Present 活在当下

Unlucky people often dwell on mistakes of the past. Lucky people, on the other hand, look to the future. They don't waste time or energy beating themselves up about things that they can't change.
不幸运的人总是纠结于过去的错误。然而幸运的人会展望未来。他们不会浪费时间和精力用不可控制的事情来打击自己。
