新女性領導10成功工作法則 ( 10 NEW RULES OF LEADERSHIP FOR WOMEN IN THE WORKPLACE )

Succeeding as a woman in business can sometimes feel like an uphill battle.
作為一個女人商業成功有時可能會像一場艱苦的戰鬥。

If you look closely at upper management in corporate America, you’ll notice there’s a distinct lack of women in leadership roles at the highest ranks.
如果您仔細觀察美國企業的上層管理人員,您會注意到女性在最高職位上的領導角色明顯不足。

Not only do women have to deal with gender balance issues in the workplace, but they also face internal struggles in their rise to success.
婦女不僅要處理工作場所的性別平衡問題,而且還要面對內部爭取成功的鬥爭。

To be competitive, women don’t have to give up who they are – nor should they – but they do have to change their approach. The key to success is understanding how your male counterparts think so you can succeed and win at work!
為了具有競爭力,婦女不必放棄自己是誰 - 也不應該放棄,但他們必須改變自己的方法。 成功的關鍵是了解你的男同志如何思考,以便在工作中取得成功並贏得勝利!

Follow These Rules to Get Ahead at the Office
按照這些規則在辦公室前進

To that end, here are 10 rules to help women play the business game smarter, stronger, and more successfully:
為此,這裡有10條規則可以幫助女性更聰明,更強壯,更成功地經營商業:

規則1:願意承擔風險 ( Be Willing to Take Risks )

你知道他們說什麼 - 沒有風險,沒有獎勵。 業務也是如此。 如果你想得到這個促銷活動,你必須要大膽,然後去做。

Rule 2: Speak Up ( 規則2:說出來 )

It can be intimidating to share your big idea in a room full of men in suits.  In 2012, Heath, Flynn, and Holt conducted a study in which they found that men looked down upon their female colleagues during meetings, saying they spoke too softly, were easily interrupted, and were too apologetic.
在一個充滿男人的房間里分享你的大想法可能是嚇人的。 2012年,希思,弗林和霍爾特進行了一次研究,發現男人在會議期間低頭看著女同事,說得太軟,容易中斷,太過分了。

Women need to own the room by standing up, speaking their ideas with conviction, and commanding
respect.  Go into the meeting armed with your expertise and ready to contribute on key discussion points. 婦女需要擁有房間,站起來,堅定地表達自己的想法,指望尊重。 進入具有專業知識的會議,並準備為關鍵討論點做出貢獻。

Rule 3: Ditch the Drama ( 深思自已要演的 )

Male leaders often view female emotion as a sign of being weak, so it’s important that you are aware of the way you present your ideas. 男性領導人經常將女性情緒視為弱勢的標誌,因此,您必須了解自己的想法。

When you feel emotionally overloaded, take time to step back and cool down so you can choose to respond rather than react. By owning your power and speaking calmly and authoritatively while conveying confidence, you’ll get the respect you desire. I use a “Curtain Down, Curtain Up” process. 當你感到情緒超載時,要花時間退後冷卻,所以你可以選擇回應而不是反應。 擁有你的力量,坦率地,權威地說話,同時傳達信心,你會得到你所期望的尊重。 我使用“窗簾向下”窗簾過程。

So, before losing my cool I visualize myself on a stage and a curtain coming down, giving me just the thoughts. Then, it’s curtain up again and I’m able to speak with full control and confidence. 所以,在失去我的酷前,我可以看到自己在一個舞台和窗簾下來,給我正確的時間來收集我的想法。 然後,它再次起來,我能夠充分控制和自信地說話。
right amount of time to gather my

Rule 4: Take a Chill Pill ( 極度冷靜 )

As women we can be emotional. When a colleague treats you negatively, we spend a lot of time trying to figure it out, and sometimes that leads to getting really worked up and stewing about things. 作為女性,我們可以感到情緒化。 當一個同事對待你時,我們花費很多時間來弄清楚,有時候會導致真正的工作和燉東西。

Let it go.  Don’t stress.  Stay focused and in the moment. The sooner you can put the matter behind you, the sooner you’ll be onto the next big thing. Much of the time it has nothing to do with you at all – it’s something going on with them and you can’t change that. 讓它去吧。 別壓力 保持專注,在這一刻。 你可以越早把事情背後,你越快到下一件大事情。 很多時候它與你無關 - 這是與他們有關的事情,你不能改變。

Rule 5: Don’t Compare Yourself to Others ( 規則5:不要自己與他人比較 )

Is there a woman in the office that you admire, copy, or envy?  Stop comparing yourself to others and focus on your own unique qualities and capabilities. 辦公室裡有一位女士羨慕,羨慕還是羨慕?
不要把自己與別人進行比較,專注於自己獨特的素質和能力。

Don’t be a second-rate version of someone else when you can be the best version of yourself.  The more you authentically lean into your strengths, the easier success will come to you. 當你可以成為自己最好的版本時,不要成為別人的二等檔案。 你真正傾向於你的優勢越多,你會越容易成功。

Rule 6: Radiate Confidence ( 規則6:放射信心 )

You’ve probably heard a famous quote by Henry Ford that said “Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.”  Develop a strong, positive self-image.  When you respect yourself, believe in your abilities, and put yourself out there, people take notice. 你可能聽過亨利·福特(Henry Ford)的一個引人注目的報導,他說:“你是否認為你能做到,或者你不能,你是對的。”發展一個強大而積極的自我形象。 當你尊重自己時,相信你的能力,把自己放在那裡,人們就會注意到。

Keep a list of your wins. Collect a file of “atta girl”s you can review as needed. Be unstoppable. 保存您的勝利的列表。 收集“atta girl”的檔案,您可以根據需要進行審核。 不可阻擋

There’s no keeping down a determined woman who believes in herself and takes the right action steps to be her best. Say to the world, “Sure I can – just watch me!” 沒有一個確定的女人,相信自己,採取正確的行動步驟,使她最好。 對世界說,“當然可以 - 只是看著我!”

Rule 7: Forget Being Popular – Command Respect (規則7:忘記受歡迎 - 指揮尊重)

Women leaders in business can’t expect to be best friends with every staff member or colleague. Being liked is nice – but it’s not the goal. Strive to keep the professional distance needed to win at work. 女企業領袖不能期望與每位員工或同事成為最好的朋友。 被喜歡是好的 - 但這不是目標。 努力保持在工作中贏得專業的距離。

Walk the talk and you will earn respect for your actions and results. 走走談話,你將獲得尊重你的行動和結果。

Rule 8: Be Decisive (規則8:果斷)

Being strong enough to make a tough call earns you respect. Being afraid, unsure, and indecisive shows weakness and won’t get you far in business.  堅強到強勢的電話贏得你的尊重。 害怕,不確定和優柔寡斷的表現出弱點,不會讓你的業務遠遠的。

When asked for your opinion or recommendation, don’t “qualify” your words by capitulating or telling people what others have said or done, or about an article you read that said you should do
things a certain way. They only care what you think. Commit to being more decisive and taking action. 當被問及您的意見或建議時,請勿通過投標或告訴人們其他人的說法或做法,或者是您閱讀的文章說您應該以某種方式做事情來“限定”您的言辭。 他們只關心你的想法。 承諾更果斷,採取行動。

Take a stance and have the grit necessary to deal with the consequences of your decisions, whether good or bad. Be ready to give the facts, get buy-in, and take a stand. 採取一種立場,必須有必要的處理你的決定的後果,無論是好還是壞。 準備提供事實,買入,站立。

Rule 9: Be Competitive ( 規則9:競爭力 )

Bring your “A” game.  Identify a strategic mindset and maintain your competitive edge. Keep your eyes on the prize. Don’t be afraid to be aggressive and assertive to get what you want. And I do not mean that being ruthless is a virtue – it’s not. And neither is being a doormat. 帶上你的“A”遊戲。 確定戰略心態,保持競爭優勢。 關注獎勵。 不要害怕要獲得你想要的積極性和自信。 而我並不是說無情是一種美德 - 不是。 也不是一個門衛。

Rule 10: Nurture Your Network ( 規則10:醞育你的網絡 )

Ask any man what his most precious business asset is, and most, if not all, will say his network.  Develop a network of successful professional men and women who can help you learn how to think and act like a leader. 問任何一個人,他最珍貴的業務資產是什麼,大多數,雖不是全部,會說他的網絡。 建立一個成功的職業男女網絡,幫助您學習如何思考和行動,如領導者。

心得重點
  • 專注價值、目標,抓住 Rule of Success
  • 專業、熱情、行動、競爭力
  • 遠大的目標
  • 努力追求目標及完美。
  • 做自已、果斷決定。

十倍勝,絕不單靠運氣 - 心得 ( How to get 10 times Success ? )

十倍勝,絕不單靠運氣-如何在不確定、動盪不安環境中,依

    Great by Choice:Uncertainty,Chaos,and Luck-Why Some Thrive Despite Them All, Jim Collins,中譯「十倍勝,絕不單靠運氣-如何在不確定、動盪不安環境中,依舊表現卓越?」,書中說明這是個變動的時代,未來正不斷向我們拋出意想不到的機會與威脅。 一般人總是希冀在榮景中尋找商機,然而,最好的機會往往出現在最壞的時候。 懂得掌握變動的企業,逆勢而起;只知迴避變化的人,一步步走向衰敗。

    在變動、複雜、高度競爭的動盪時代,唯有建立一個靈活的組織才能勝出。薩爾先以美國的大企業如美國鋼鐵、GM汽車為例,說明自陷於「行動慣性」(active inertia,他在《成功不墜》一書中提出的名詞)的企業容易在風暴來臨時慘遭沒頂,反之,印度米塔爾(Mittal)鋼鐵則因為深諳將「風險視為機會」而日益壯大。

    書中分析許多公司包括安進( Amgen,AMGN )、生邁( Biomet )、Intel( INTC )、微軟( Microsoft )、前進保險( Progressive Insurance,PGR )、西南航空( Southwest Airlines ) 等公司的經營實際案例分析,主要重點及對投資的意義整理如下:

一、公司經營保持長期卓越的關鍵行為

1.十倍勝行為模式:
  1. 狂熱的紀律。( 價值觀、目標、績效標準的一致性 )
  2. 以實證為依據的創造力。( 透過實際觀察及實驗做為創新、行動依據 )
  3. 建設性的偏執。( 時時戰戰競競的態度 )
  4. 第五級企圖心。( 不為自己而是更遠大的目標 )
  5. 即使好運臨頭亦不懈怠,遭逢厄運亦不耽溺於絕望情緒中。
  6. 不斷向前推進,努力追求目標。
2.二十哩行軍:
  1. 公司好運臨頭時會把握難得好機會,並在幾年或幾十年都努力向前推進。
  2. 無論好運或壞運,員工皆深信成功不是靠運氣。
  3. 在混亂中注入秩序,在快速變動中保持一致性。
3.先射子彈,再射砲彈:
  1. 先以低成本的諸多實驗,提高碰上可行方案的機率。
  2. 結合實證與創意後,才加注投資發射砲彈,因此不仰賴運氣達到最後的成功。
4.超越死亡線:
  1. 避免黑天鵝事件發生時公司因此陣亡消失。
  2. 手中握有更多選項,擴大安全邊際,而不致在厄運降臨時釀成巨災。
5. SMaC (Specific,Methodical and Consistent)配方:
  1. 一家好的企業有具體明確、有條理、有方法,同時又始終如一的可長可久的做法。
  2. SMaC 可將厄運來臨時的失誤降至最低,好運臨頭時,提高完美執行的機率。
  3. 幫助公司或個人不要因意外因素而推翻原本規劃,以及該如何改變。
  4. Apple Inc., 在 Steve Jobs 重新出發的新要點
6. 絕不仰賴運氣:
  • 與其仰賴運氣,寧可追求卓越。
  • 作者將成功公司與經營較差的公司進行重大事件因素比對,成功的公司遇到好運的事不會比較多、遇到的壞事也不會比較少,前述的行為特徵才是成功關鍵。
  • 真正的好運是來自於「找對人的幸運」,找到對的良師、益友、夥伴、團隊成員、領導人才是最重要的幸運。
  • 往往惡運是一家好的企業轉機之突破點,其實 Steve Jobs 正是在 Apple Inc., 最慘時尋找到新轉機之突破點 iPod & iTune ,改變了 AAPL 讓它成為全球明星。

柯林斯:十倍勝,絕不單靠運氣


年初時連載了 Jim Collins 最新大作「Great by Choice」的幾篇讀後心得,想不到不久後就在信箱裡收到遠流的來信 — 他們的確即將推出這本書的中文版,並且為求慎重,給了再度挑起大任的齊若蘭女士非常充裕的時間琢磨譯文。插曲是我預言失敗,這次不沿用「 A+」命名,而是從本書研究對象「十倍者 (10Xer)」出發,起了一個更為磅礡的《十倍勝,絕不單靠運氣》。

在這裡要謝謝遠流的邀請,我有榮幸為這本巨作寫下導讀。我的文字能為大師 Collins 開場,小部落客的寫作生涯如今了無遺憾,與各位分享。

偉大企業生於憂患而死於安樂

睽違 4 年,柯林斯回來了。

從 1994 年出版的《基業長青》開始,到 2001 年的《從 A 到 A+》,2009 年的《為什麼 A+ 巨人也會倒下》,以及這次的《十倍勝》,十九年來柯林斯堅持做同一件事情,就是不斷用他的「對照分析法」,以最接近西方科學的研究態度,去拆解「管理」這門錯綜複雜的社會學,試圖從中抽取少數近乎「因果」的正向關係。

既然是用最接近科學實驗的態度,除了柯林斯對照分析裡面必定出現的「實驗」與「對照」兩組企業體之外,還必須給每個實驗適當的限制。《基業長青》研究的對象是存活 40 年以上,更換過數位執行長的偉大企業;《A 到 A+》瞄準了經歷 15 年平凡歲月,接著又出現 15 年超凡表現的蛻變企業;《巨人倒下》反過來研究從優秀突然衰敗的企業;而這次的《十倍勝》,柯林斯對準的則是在「劇烈變遷」環境下還能有十倍於市場表現的企業。

為什麼要研究「劇變的環境」?如果你仔細想想,二次大戰後近乎平滑擴張的「量產革命」與「中產階級崛起」時代,事實上正在進入尾聲。取而代之的,是 90 年代末期開始出現,高頻率且振幅巨大的市場循環。震央通常是全球金融市場,因為開放、因為日益複雜的衍生性商品、因為對沖基金的全球套利等種種因素,直接或間接導致了 97 年的亞洲金融風暴,2000 年的達康股災,2008 年的金融海嘯,與近期的歐債等頻繁的危機,其震盪週期遠遠快過先前的 50 年。

這些劇烈的震盪雖然從金融市場發出,但往往有全球性、全產業的影響。假設這樣劇烈的商業環境短期內不會離我們而去,則現代的企業領導人必須要學會如何在嚴峻的環境中生存,並且創造出遠超過對手的表現。而這,就是十倍勝研究企圖揭開的秘密。

柯林斯最終選出了 7 家有 15 年以上出色表現的十倍企業,對照分析後,得到了一組非常有趣的結論。除了與「A+ 企業」一樣必須有第五級的企圖心之外,這些企業的領導人還有三個共同特質 –「狂熱的紀律」、「以實證為依據的創造力」以及「建設性的偏執」。

所謂的狂熱紀律,並不是狂熱於規矩,嚴格要求公司上下遵守教條的那種紀律。相反的,它指的是絕不大開大闔,每天帶領公司全體朝著目標穩定推進的紀律。柯林斯稱這種行為叫「二十哩行軍」,也就是無論天氣好壞,都以每天二十哩的速度往目標推進的策略 — 從 Intel 的摩爾定律到 Apple 的一年一支 iPhone,都是「二十哩行軍」的好例子。

實證為依據的創造力指的是不為創新而創新,務實處理新產品、新事業創造的態度。柯林斯稱這種行為叫「先射子彈、後射砲彈」,也就是先求小打小贏,等到有足夠把握,再投入大量資源的策略。Bill Gates 用前面十年小規模試驗 Windows 作業系統,等到確認掌握市場需求了,再一口氣以 Windows 95 決勝負就是一個模範。

建設性的偏執指的則是領導人經常為可能的戰爭與威脅感到神經兮兮,卻又能引導這些情緒成為動力,驅使自己不斷為這些戰爭與威脅無所不用其極的準備,讓公司永遠處在糧草充足、士氣高昂的狀態下。這種行為,柯林斯稱它叫「超越死亡線」。

有了第五級企圖心,有了上述三種領導人的意志,十倍企業還必須貫徹這些精神。根據柯林斯的歸納,他們往往靠所謂的「SMaC 致勝配方」,也就是一套像「憲法」一般的最高指導原則,來明白闡述本公司的種種「做與不做」,好讓企業文化有長期且確實的存在。

到這裡,本書其實可以說是完整了,但柯林斯居然沒有停下來,相反的,他「附贈」了我們一個章節 — 「運氣」,一個西方管理學研究幾乎沒人挑戰過的題目。柯林斯歸納發現,十倍公司與對照組間「運氣事件」發生的機率幾乎是一樣的,也就是說,雙方的「好運」與「厄運」相似。然而真正讓他們表現迥異的,是碰到運氣事件時,領導人能夠抓住機會順勢而上的能力,也就是所謂「運氣報酬率」。

讀完本書,當我綜合去想這些柯林斯提出的十倍者特質,心中的投射印象似乎與傳統「專業經理人」頗有差異,反倒更為接近一個身經百戰的「創業家」。想想也頗合理,在不斷變遷的環境中,每個領導人,每家企業,的確必須長期處在「創業」的狀態中。

孟子說:「生於憂患,死於安樂」,這次,柯林斯則用他的西方科學方法,幫我們印證了這個兩千年的道理。

心得重點

  • 價值觀、目標、績效標準的一致性,抓住 Rule of Success
  • 透過實際觀察及實驗做為創新、行動依據
  • 不為自己而是更遠大的目標
  • 不斷向前推進,努力追求目標。
  • 好的企業有具體明確、有條理、有方法,同時又始終如一的可長可久的做法。
  • 真正的好運是來自於「找對人的幸運」,找到對的良師、益友、夥伴、團隊成員、領導人才是最重要的幸運。
  • 無論好運或壞運,員工皆深信成功不是靠運氣。
  • 讓今天更有價值、重視今天( To Value Today ),管理好每天價值,讓追求目標更接近。

我所體會之富人與窮人在行為、想法之差異 ( What I experienced between rich and poor in his/her thinking and behavior )

  許多人也許少有機會看見自已朋友從貧窮走向富足、從沒房子沒錢走向上億富人,我卻是親眼所見,希望藉這樣所見所聞,鼓勵大家走向富足,才能幫助許多人,不要以為不可能。

10 Major Differences Between Rich and Poor People

I've been rich and I’ve been poor. I know both sides very well.

Growing up poor, I knew that I wanted to be rich. At the age of 24, I earned my first million dollars. I came a long way and studied the subject all of my life. Over time, I have discovered that if you're not living in prosperity, you're living in poverty.

Wealth is a choice that we must all make. Bill Gates once said, "It's not your fault if you were born poor, but it’s your fault if you die poor." There's no reason why you should live in poverty. Wealth is waiting for you, but you have to make up your mind if you want it in your life.

For a long time, I struggled to believe that I could eventually become rich. It wasn't until I observed the differences in thoughts and actions between the "haves" and the "have-nots."

Here are 10 major differences between rich and poor people: ( behavior )
  • 1a. Poor people are skeptical  ( 窮人易懷疑態度 )
    • I distinctly remember a former coworker of mine saying, "Those mechanics are a rip-off! They're always looking for the weak people. They'll charge you when you're not looking!!" He thought that everyone unjustly wanted his money and that everyone is out there to get him. 
  • 1b. Rich people are trusting ( 富人信任人 )
    • Surprisingly, a great deal of rich people leave their car and house doors open. Conversely, in areas of poverty, you'll find that this behavior is highly unlikely to happen. Rich people have the tendency to trust those they meet (within reason) and give others the opportunity to be themselves.
  • 2a. Poor people find fault ( 窮人找錯誤 )
    • People who are poor are always looking for the problems instead of the solutions. They end up blaming their environment, circumstances, jobs, weather, government, and will make an extensive list of excuses as to why they cannot be successful. 
  • 2b. Rich people find success ( 富人尋覓成功之道 )
    • Rich people understand that everything happens for a reason. Rather than letting life happen to them, they take direct action and make big things happen. They put aside all the excuses and eradicate their blame lists because they have to do what must be done.

  • 3a. Poor people make assumptions ( 窮人常做假設 )
    • When it comes to knowing the truth, poor people often make assumptions. If they want to reach out to a celebrity, they might say, "They probably don't have time to talk to me." Instead of checking the facts or asking questions, they never make a true attempt when it comes to getting what they want.
  • 3b. Rich people ask questions ( 富人常問問題 )
    • Many rich people ask the question, "What if?" For instance, "What if I wrote an email to the president and he or she answers?" If you begin to ask questions, you will save yourself a lot of hassle. The power is in the hands of those who ask the right questions. They don't answer your questions, question your answers.
  • 4a. Poor people say, "They" and "Them" ( 窮人常說“他們”和“他們” )
    • In the grocery store, the woman at the register said, "They never have enough cashiers. I don't know what's wrong with them." Obviously, this woman did not take any ownership and responsibility over her job. She certainly did separate herself from the job that was paying her. 
  • 4b. Rich people say, "We" ( 富人常說“我們” )
    • At one of my favorite restaurants, the server said, "We take great delight in cooking our steaks in real fire." His sense of pride and ownership stimulated me, which allowed me to give him an honorable tip. Surely, you will be rich when you invest more into what you believe in.  
  • 5a. Poor people want the cheapest way ( 窮人常選擇最便宜的方式 )
    • I was once shopping with a friend who only wanted to buy if they could find the cheapest clothing. They would rush to the clearance rack and pick up clothes that they didn't even want, but ended up buying because of a "deal." Unfortunately, they ended up never wearing it since they only bought the price.
  • 5b. Rich people want the best way  ( 富人常選擇最好的方法 )
    • Rich people will go the extra mile to find quality material. They don't limit themselves to price and often seek service while they shop. Rich people want organized services and will never settle with items that are worthless and unusable.
  • 6a. Poor people think money is more important than time ( 窮人認為金錢比時間更重要 )
    • Millions of people all over the world are trading their precious time for money. You can always get $500 back, but you can't get 50 hours again. Nonetheless, the majority of people trade time for money and never realize their true potential because of it.
  • 6b. Rich people know that time is more important than money ( 富人認為時間比金錢更重要 )
    • Rich people never trade time for money. Moreover, they seek fulfilling experiences that dramatically alter their lives. Their careers are more focused on doing what they love and helping others, instead of merely clocking in for a meager paycheck.

  • 7a. Poor people compete ( 窮人只知競爭 )
    • When a poor person sees an opportunity, they find out how others are doing it and emulates them. Most often, they never consider another way of doing it. Instead, they settle in the belief that doing what others are doing is the best thing they can do for themselves.
  • 7b. Rich people create ( 富人創造機會 )
    • My rich neighbors were disgruntled when they found that their Porsche did not come in a specific shade of green, which they deeply wanted. Because of this, they decided to custom build their green Porsche with unprecedented specifications. I've never seen such a thing! 
  • 8a. Poor people complain, condemn, and criticize ( 窮人抱怨,譴責和批判 )
    • Most poor people have learned how to be poor from their predecessors. Their family members have conditioned them to believe that everything is "wrong" instead of right. If you're ever heard someone ask, "What's wrong?" you'll know what I mean.
  • 8b. Rich people praise and enjoy their blessings ( 富人讚揚和感恩他們的祝福 )
    • Rich people know that they have many privileges and they don't take it for granted. Because of their appreciation of gifts, love, and circumstances, they are able to generate more. Many times, what gets praised gets prospered.
  • 9a. Poor people seek amateur advice ( 窮人常尋求非專業意見 )
    • They often listen to the opinions of others and seek approval from acquaintances. They believe almost everything they hear without questioning authority. They accept opinions as facts and prohibit themselves from doing research once satisfied with an answer.
  • 9b. Rich people seek expert advice ( 富人們徵求專家意見 )
    • Those who are rich have learned to think for themselves. If they cannot figure out something, they seek expert advice. Usually, they pay for the advice and are given a wide variety of options. They learn the experts only make suggestions, which means that they aren't particularly confined to a specific action.
  • 10a. Poor people have big television sets ( 窮人喜愛有大電視機 )
    • Poor people take a lot of time to drift off to sporadic images of which they often have little to no control over. They use their free time to avoid the art of thinking (which is the most challenging task) and zone out to what many have conformed to believe is "entertainment." 
  • 10b. Rich people have big libraries ( 富人喜愛有大知識庫 )
    • Wealthy people are educated and read a lot of books. They use their knowledge in a way that benefits them. Instead of drifting off in random activities, they seek to get within their minds to understand themselves, others, and the world in which they live. In fact, as your personal library increase over the years, so will your home. I can attest to this!
To get a true perspective on how to become rich, you must study rich people. After all, you become what you study. If you're currently surrounded by people who aren't yet rich, just do the opposite of what they do. Soon enough, you'll be able to reach your financial dreams!

7 Main Differences Between Rich And Poor People

    Most people want to be rich, but most of them are poor, why? There must be some differences between rich people and poor people. If you study carefully, you will find out why rich and successful people are able to produce amazing results in their life, and why some people are living in poverty.
  To be rich and successful, you don’t need to be lucky, extremely hard working or you need to have a college diploma or a university degree.
  What you need, is the right mindset and the right mindset will form the right habit. As a result, the right habit will lead you toward the financial abundance kind of lifestyle that you always desire.
So here are the 7 main differences between rich and poor people…

  1. Rich people believe that they create their lives while poor people believe that life happens to them. 
    • Can you see why rich and successful people are able to create amazing results in their life right now? It is simply because they are in control of their lives. They believe that they are the ones who is responsible for their lives, they are the ones who is creating their future, not the economy or the knowledge or luck. On the other hand, poor people will always give excuses and blame on the circumstances. 
    • When they failed in their business, they will blame the economy, their boss, their family or anything that did not go according to their plan. Whenever you believe that life happens to you, you will lose the power to change and the power to control your future. You must believe that you’re the one who is creating your future, not other people or events.
  2. Rich people play the money game to win but poor people play the money game just not to lose money. 
    • This is a big mindset difference. Have you ever seen people invest in the stock market? Some people are so afraid that they will lose their money and they form a mindset that blocks their creativity. They formed the mindset of ‘investing not to lose the money.’However, rich and successful people know exactly how they need to think in order to win the game of money. 
    • They will think and act from the view of playing the game to win. Unlike poor people, they will never invest just not to lose the money.
  3. Rich people think and focus on opportunities while poor people focus on obstacles. 
    • When you face with problems, what are you focus on? Are you focus on the problems, thinking how bad the situation is going to be? Or are you focusing on the solution and thinking about how you can solve or even turn the situation into opportunity? Think about this carefully. No matter who you are, you will definitely face with all kinds of choices in your life. And when you need to decide to move on, try to notice on you thinking, what do you focus on, the solution, or the problem?
  4. Rich people dare to dream big, poor people think small. 
    • When I tell my parents that I want to make a million dollar, they will tell me, “Why do you need so much money? You can live a very good lifestyle if you got a job that has a good pay. You don’t need to be a millionaire.” I don’t know about you, but this statement happens to me all the time. And I definitely believe that poor people will tend to think small while rich people always think big. 
    • To poor people, they will think that rich people are greedy because they always think big. Is it true that you are being greedy if you think big? I don’t know if I buy this, but to me, I’ll think of it as a waste if you’re not using the resources available (your thinking) to you at full. Don’t you owe it to everyone around you to create a better life for them? Don’t you want your family to live good? So think big and create the abundance lifestyle for these people right now.
  5. Rich people are committed to their dreams, poor people are just dreaming about their dreams. Yes, this is an obvious one. 
    • If you’re not committed to be rich, you can never be rich. How many times have you heard people say that they want to be rich, but they never do anything about it?
    • This is the mentality of poor people. They will just think about how good it is going to be if they are rich, but they will never do anything about their dreams. They know that they cannot afford a luxury car if they have a low pay job. The thing is, they never do anything to change it.
    • On the contrary, rich and successful people are committed toward their dreams. They will do whatever it takes, in the boundary or moral and ethics of course, to achieve their dreams.
  6. Rich people associate with rich and successful people. Poor people will associate with poor people. Do you have any rich friends? Or all of your friends are poor?
    • I’m not suggesting that you need to stop making friends with poor people, what I’m suggesting it, try to get to know more about rich people. The more you mix with them, the more you will think like them. And if you think like them, you will start to create amazing results just like them.
    • If most of your friends are poor and their working salary all are below, $2,000, you will be having the same range of salary most of the time. However, if you associate with rich people who are making $2,000 in just a day, you will start to see the possibility of what you can accomplish in your life.
    • And this will change your thinking of what you can achieve in your life. $2,000 will become a small amount for you once you changed your mindset about money.
  7. Rich people good learners while poor people think that they have learned everything in the world. One of the fastest ways to be financially abundance is to learn directly from people who have already achieved this status.
And if you’re not willing to learn, you will never be able to be successful. If you want to get the best pay, you must be the best. And the only way you can be the best is to learn from the best and learn to be the best.
You now know what are the 7 main differences between rich and poor people. Do what rich people do and try to avoid the adopting the mindset and habits of the poor.
This will guarantee you a financial abundance lifestyle.

請問在座每個人 還能夠想起在你17歲的時候 想要成為什麼樣的人嗎? 你知道我想要成為什麼嗎? 我想成為一位飛車騎士 (笑聲) 我想要賽車 我想要成為一名女牛仔 以及成為"森林王子"裡的莫格利 因為他們都渴望自由 享受風輕拂著頭髮,就是要自由 在我17歲的生日時 我的父母知道我有多熱愛速度 於是給我上了駕駛這門課 當作我17歲的生日禮物 這不代表家裡負擔的起我開車 只是純粹給了我這個夢想

在我17歲生日時 我陪同我的小妹 用我一向 天真的想法 陪我視障的妹妹 去看眼科醫師 因為做姊姊的 總是得支持他們的妹妹 我的小妹想要成為一名飛行師 但願上帝幫助她 我之前定期做眼科檢查 單純是為了好玩 在我17歲生日 做完假的眼科檢查之後 眼科醫生注意到這天是我的生日 他說:"你打算怎麼慶祝生日"? 那時我拿到了駕照 於是我說:"我要去學開車" 在我說完這話一片寂靜 一種令你感覺不對勁 的沉默 然後醫生轉向我母親 他說了:"你還沒告訴她嗎"? 在我17歲生日 如同賈尼斯伊恩說得好 我在17歲時發現了真相 原來打從出生時 我就領有視障手冊

你們知道嗎 我究竟是如何活到17歲的 而且還完全不知情的? 如果有人說鄉村音樂不好 讓我告訴你這個反證吧 我之所以不知情 是因為我父親對Johnny Cash的熱愛 Johnny Cash的一首歌叫"A Boy Named Sue." 我在家中三個小孩排行最大。我在1971年出生 在我出生後不久 我的父母發現我有眼疾-視覺上的白化症 這是什麼? 讓我告訴你,這最大的問題是什麽? 我看不見這個時鐘也看不見現在幾點 我的天阿,嗚呼! 也許我能多待點時間 但讓我告訴你們更重要的是 我將很快進入話題,別緊張 嘿 看到這隻手了嗎? 在這隻手的背後是一片模糊的視界 在場的每一個人,甚至是你,史蒂夫 都是喬治克魯尼 (笑聲) 以及每一位女性,你們是如此的美麗 當我想要變漂亮時,便退後三呎看著鏡子 我便無法去看到我臉上 因長久以來在黑暗中 我瞇著眼睛去看而產生的細紋

特別的是 在我三歲半準備去上學時 我的父母做了一個不合常理 又非常勇敢的決定 我不去殘障學校 我不用貼上任何標籤 對我的能力以及潛力 沒有任何限制 他們決定告訴我 我看得見 就如同Johnny Cash歌裡的Sue 一位被給予女孩名字的男孩 我會長大並且從各個經驗中學習 要如何堅強以及如何生存 當他們都不在我身旁保護我的時候 或者一切都被帶走時要如何生存 但是更重要的是 他們賦予我 去相信的能力 完完全全的相信我所能做的 所以當我聽到眼科醫生說 當他告訴我事情的真相,一個從裡到外的一聲"不" 每個人都覺得我會一蹶不振 但別誤會了,起先聽到時 我只覺得醫生瘋了 我的心被敲了一下 發出一聲"啊" 但很快地我沒事了。就如同上述所言。 我想到的第一件事是我母親 在我身旁激動得哭泣 然後我對上帝發誓,並且離開他的辦公室 "我能開車,一定能開車 你瘋了。我一定可以開車的,我知道我可以"

抱持著一個從小到大頑強的決心 那就是從小我父親陪育我的觀念 他教會了我怎麼航海 即便知道我完全看不到方向,也看不見海岸 以及看不見帆,也看不見目的地 但是他告訴我要相信 去感受微風輕拂我的臉頰 而那輕拂我臉頰的微風讓我相信 我絕對能開車 然而在往後的11年 我發誓不讓人發現我看不見 因為我一點都不想成為一名輸家 而且我也不想要成為弱者 我相信我能做到 所以我過著一種凱西能做到的生活 我做過考古學家,我打破了文物 我管理過一間餐廳,我還打破盤子 我做過按摩師,我也作過景觀園藝師 然後我去上了商業學校 殘障人士受非常多的教育 後來我得到了一個全球諮詢性的工作--在埃森哲股份有限公司 而且連他們也不知道 信念帶著我走這麼遠 真的很神奇

在1999年 得到這個工作的兩年之後 精彩的事情發生了 我的眼睛決定罷工了 是暫時性的 非常異想不到地 它們罷工了 而我卻在當時世界上最具競爭力的環境之下 需要非常努力的工作,而且不擇手段,必須要做到最好 過了兩年 我確實只能看見一點點 我走到了一位人力資源的經理面前 在這時是1999年 並說出一些我從沒沒想過會說出的話 我那時28嵗 我一直在做得到與做不到之間掙扎逞強 我就只說 很抱歉 我看不見,請給我點幫助 向人要求協助真的很難 你們應該都能了解,而這並不需要身患殘疾才能體會 大家都知道 承認自己的軟弱和失敗有多難 這是很令人驚恐的,對吧 但我的信念卻支持了我這麼久

當你看不見,卻得在這依賴雙眼的世界工作時 這確實很困難 跟你們說,機場真是恐怖的地方 噢!我敬愛的上帝 請問有設計師在場嗎? 麻煩舉個手,雖然我不一定看得見 我常常進到男生廁所 我的嗅覺是完全沒問題的 但是我可以跟你說 男女廁的小標誌 得靠下面的三角形裙襬來分別 你是否曾經試過 當你眼前有一層凡士林的時候來看 那會真的小到令人看不見,對吧 而當你並不完美,卻渴求變的完美 或者變成你想成為的對象 這真的很累

而在向經理承認我看不見之後 我被送去看眼科醫師 當時我還不知道他會是改變我一生的人 在去看醫生之前,我非常低落 我對於自己感到迷惘 而這眼科醫師,他根本懶得檢查我的眼睛 喔不,那是心理治療 他問了我一些問題 而問題通常是"為什麼?" 為什麼你要這麼拚命地 抗拒自己的條件限制? 你所做的是你喜愛做的嗎,卡洛琳? 你知道當你去了一家全球諮詢公司 他們將一片晶片放進你的頭,而你會說 "我愛埃森哲,我愛我的工作,我愛埃森哲 我愛埃森哲,我愛我的工作,我愛埃森哲" 離開的人就輸了 他問我"你喜歡這樣嗎" 我當下真是激動得答不出話來 我只是……該怎麼說呢 接著他說"你小時候想成為什麼?" 我不想對他說"我想成為賽車手和摩托車手" 在當時的情境很不適合 反正他應該覺得我滿瘋的 在我離開他辦公室時 他叫住了我 他說"我認為時候到了 該是時候 不要再抗拒,去做點別的事吧" 接著門就關上了 門外就只剩下一陣寂靜 之後像大家知道的 我的胸口痛起來了 我不知道我何去何從,我真的不知道 我只覺得一切結束了

於是我回到家,而胸口真的很痛 我想著"去外頭跑一下好了" 這不是什麼明智之舉 我去跑我非常熟悉的路綫 我閉著眼都可以跑的路綫 我總是跑得很好 我數著步伐、路燈等事物 這些都是視障人士比較容易看到的 而那邊有個石頭我總是能避開 我從來沒被絆倒過 我邊哭邊跑 結果卻用力地撞在石頭上 我很慘地摔倒了 就在這石頭上 當時是2000年的三月中 典型愛爾蘭天氣的星期三 到處都灰灰的,而我涕淚縱橫 可笑地自艾自憐

我非常的失望及挫折 而且生氣 因為我不知道該做什麼好 我就在那邊坐了好一段時間 "我要怎麼離開這塊石頭然後回家? 而我想成為什麼人 究竟我想成為什麼人 於是我想到了我的父親 我就想"天啊,我已經不是Sue了" 我不斷反覆思索著 到底怎麼了?我哪裡做錯了?我怎還看不透? 而最特別的是 這些我都想不到答案 我的信念已完全消失了 看看我的信念帶給我的成就 但現在我已失去它,而我也已經看不見 我開始抱頭痛哭 然後我突然想到那眼科醫師 他曾問我的問題"你想成為什麼? 你小時候想變成什麼人?你喜歡你現在做的嗎? 做點別的事吧!你想做些什麼事? 做點別的事吧!你究竟想做什麼事?" 就這樣慢慢地,慢慢地 事情發生了 在這種情況下發生了 就在事情發生的時候 我的腦袋就像爆炸了 然後它衝進我心裡 不一樣的事是吧 "嗯,森林王子裡的莫格利,怎麼樣"? 不會有比這更不一樣的了 在這一刻 我指我想通的這一刻 我向上帝發誓 太棒了!我有可以相信的事 而且沒有人能否定我的想法 是啊,你可以說我不能成為考古學家 但你不能說我不能成為莫格利,知道為什麼嗎 因為這是空前的,而我打算去嘗試 不管我是男是女,我就是要去試

然後我就離開那塊石頭,天啊!我又跑回家了 我全力衝回家,都沒摔倒,也沒撞到東西了 接著我跑到樓上,那裏有本我最愛的書 Mark Shand寫的"在象背上的旅行"不知道有人聽過嗎 我就拿起這本書坐到沙發上 接著"我知道我要怎麼做了 我知道要怎變成莫格利了 我要騎在大象背上 穿越印度 我要變成大象騎士" 雖然我並不知道 要怎變成大象騎士 從全球管理顧問變成大象騎士 我不知道該怎麼去雇用大象,取得一隻大象 我也不會說印度語,甚至沒去過印度,根本毫無頭緒 但是我卻知道我可以 因為當在正確的時候正確的地方所做的決定 上天會幫你達成目標

距離在石頭上痛哭那天的九個月後 我有了人生的第一次“盲人摸象”約會 對方是個七呎半高的大象,叫Kanchi 之後我們一起跋涉了一千公里路途 穿越了印度 (掌聲) 最棒的事情 並不是我之前從沒做過。而是,喔天啊!我辦到了 各位知道,過去我所相信的是錯的 因為我相信的不是我自己 不是真正的我,不是自己的每一部分 以及大家的每一部分 你知道有多少人不是在作自己嗎 你知道嗎,當你相信自己的全部時 一定會有神奇的事情發生

你知道嗎,那一千公里的路途 籌到的募款足夠我做6000次白内障手術 6000個人或許能因此重見天日 而當我離開Kanchi時 你知道最不可思議的是什麼嗎 我辭去了在埃森哲的工作 我離開了,而我成為了社會企業家 我跟Mark Shand成立一個機構"Elephant Family" 主要在處理亞洲大象的保育工作 接著我又成立叫"Kanchi"的機構 因為我喜歡用我的大象的名字命名 而殘障人士就像房間裡的大象一樣 我希望大家能用正面積極的眼光來看待 而不是施捨、憐憫 我真正想做的是 結合商業及媒體的號召力 用振奮人心以及可行的方式 重建殘障人士的社會價值 這很語發驚人吧 這就是我所要做的 我不曾再想過其他事情,想我看不見 或其他瑣碎的事 反正就是覺得這可行

你知道嗎,最奇特的是 在我要到TED來的路上 老實說,我嚇呆了 我要演講 但這邊有這麼棒的聽眾 那我來這裡做什麽 但當我要來這裡時 知道這件事大家應該會很高興 我還是用了我的白色手杖 它讓我在機場免於排隊 我到這裡來了 同時還對看不見這件事有幾分自豪。 對了,有一個很好的朋友 他知道我會驚恐所以發了個簡訊給我 儘管我看起來很有自信,但多少還是會害怕 他說"做自己就好" 因此我到這裡來了 這就是我,全部的我

而我也學到了,你知道嗎 汽車、摩托車和大象 這些不代表自由 做真實的自己,才是真正的自由 而我並不需要眼睛來看世界,真的不需要 我只需要夢想跟信念 如果你能真的相信 打從內心深處地相信 你就可以讓改變發生 而且我們必須讓改變發生 因為我們每一個人 女人,男人,同性戀,異性戀 殘障的,完好無缺的 普通人,不管怎樣 每一個人 一定要當最棒的自己 我希望每個人都可以被看的見 都可以是世界的一份子 不要再貼標籤,做限制 甩掉那些標籤吧 因為我們不是果醬罐子 大家都是與眾不同、精彩絕倫的人
