How do we take our places?

我们凭借什么所向披靡

Progressive future and successful life require discipline and character. These things are embedded into the pattern of our lives through proper education and interaction with fellow human beings. A solid foundation of time tested nurtured values attach a character to each and every one of us. Finally, wherever we go we carry our character subconsciously with us.

进步的未来和成功的生活需要纪律和个人品质:他们通过教育和其他人的互动根植与我们的生活方式中。久经考验的价值观奠定的坚实基础赋予每一个人品质。最后不管我们走到哪里,我们身上都会潜意识地随时反映我们的品质。

A person is character personified only if he has enough credibility. Credibility is an essential attribute that is built on the elements of integrity, reliability, veracity, competence and commitment. Credibility shines in those people who are ethically motivated. Credibility is an important tool in improving your people skills. Credibility ensures a person to win the genuine respect, confidence and trust of others. To build up enough credibility we have to have a lot of following elements:

如果有足够的诚信,品质就会个性化。诚信是一个基本的特质,是建立在正直,可靠,诚实,能力和承诺的基础上。诚信是崇尚道德的人的身上发出的光芒。诚信可言提高你做人的技巧。诚信使人们获得由衷的敬意,自信和别人的信任。要建立足够的诚信,我们必须拥有以下的品质:

Integrity: in simple words it means standing for your values and be firm on your views. Integrity is an essential factor to win the adulation and trust of others. Integrity is the solidarity with which you make your presence felt.

正直:用简单的话而言就是捍卫你的价值观,坚持你的观点。正直使你得到别人的尊敬和信任。正直使人们无法无视你的存在。

Reliability: reliability is a very addictive breeding ground for mutual trust and improved interpersonal relations. Evidence of reliability lies in the consistency with which we deliver on commitments, promises and statements.

可靠性:可靠性是培养相互信任和提升人际关系的基础。可靠性反映在我们和别人的沟通,对他人的承诺和陈述的一致性。

Competence: competence is the combined effort of knowledge application, experience and conscientious effort to the best possible solution for a given problem. When deadlines have to be met at the earliest a person’s competence is the only handy tool that will see him through that deadline. A competent person has no ifs and buts in his vocabulary. He won’t fix a blame for failure on something or someone, but will modulate himself to rectify the situation.

能力:能力是知识应用,经验和认真应对解决问题的综合表现。当要赶一个期限时,个人的能力就是助他达到期限目的的唯一方便工具。有能力的人的词典里面没有“如果”和“但是”这些字眼。他不会为失败而责备其他人和事,而是调整自己去改变处境。

Commitment: a proper canalization of one’s energy, enthusiasm, talent and thoughts into completing a given project or thoughts is commitment. Commitment calls for a firm mental resolve to fulfill the job at hand and see it through. A committed person won’t rest on his laurels till he has completed his duty.

承诺:正确投入个人的能量,热情,才能及思考去完成一个项目或实现一个想法就是承诺。承诺需要坚定的决心去完成手头的工作。一个守承诺的人不完成任务是不会言休的。

No one is born perfect. But one can hone one’s skills by being true to oneself. Early realization of the important change in your life can take you places. So be far-sighted and do let me know the results.

没有人生来是完美的,但可以通过坦诚对待自己来不断磨练自己早些实现生活中的重要变化,会使你所向披靡。因此保持远见,并告诉我结果如何。
