Change is considerably easier when you have a full complement of supporting partners and unlimited resources. But, since very often it is the shock of a death, divorce or some other life tragedy that unceremoniously tosses us out of our comfort zone to fend for ourselves, it can mean being forced to strike out alone which for many of us is the scariest part of all.
當你有很多合作伙伴和無盡的資源時,改變就更容易發生了。但是,由于這種變化往往是來自于身邊的人去世的打擊、離婚或是其他的一些人生悲劇,而且這些變化又毫無征兆地將我們趕出了自己的舒適圈,使我們不得不自己照顧自己,所以這樣的變化也意味著我們要被迫獨自面對很多事情,這也是很多人最害怕的事情。

Probably the most difficult thing about pursuing significant change is doing it when you don’t have the knowledge, financial or emotional tools available to make the process go smoothly.
也許,在進行顯著改變時遇到的最困難的事情,就是即便對相關知識一無所知,也缺少財務支持或情感工具,卻還是要順利完成。

However, as difficult as it can be, sometimes reaching our full potential means working without a net. Or, as Tony Robbins says, "If you want to take the island, burn the f’ing boats!"
然而,不管有多難,有時想要達到我們潛能的極限,其實只需在工作時擺脫網絡的束縛。換言之,正如托尼? 羅賓斯所說,“如果你想去島上,就燒了這些該死的船!”

For those truly dedicated to their mission, having fewer resources and no backup or fallback plan can be a surprising blessing as it forces you to get creative and forge new paths.
而對于那些真正致力于完成自己使命的人來說,缺少資源、備份或應急計劃都會被看作是一個意外之禮,因為這促使你變得更具創造力,懂得另辟蹊徑。

I don’t know if it’s possible to leave this world with zero regrets. Because of the natural life cycles and the fact that sometimes it’s the tragedy that causes our awakenings we often have our epiphanies too late to avoid certain painful outcomes.
我不知道是否有可能在離開這個世界時不留任何遺憾。因為自然生命周期有限,也只有悲劇結局,才能讓我們清醒,這使我們時常頓悟得太晚,以致于無法避免那些令人痛苦的結局。

However, it is indefensible to can claim ignorance to the possible ramifications of continued inaction. The choice belongs to each and every one of us. We all have the power to change both our thoughts and behavior thereby giving more intentional direction to the remainder of our lives.
然而,把持續的無作為所導致的后果歸因為無知是站不住腳的。選擇權在我們每一個人手中。我們都可以改變自己的思想和行為,去為之后的生活確立更明確的方向。
