Five Keys to Happiness

幸福的5个关键

 【首发疑问】幸福的5个关键 - 杠杆使者Leverer - 杠杆力

 

大约10年前,我曾有幸作为导师和朋友去了解Ray Chambers。在拥有了华尔街的传奇生涯之后,你被广泛承认发展了现代融资收买(1982年收购了Gibson Greetings),他在87年崩盘之前做了最后的一笔重大交易,然后再大约两年之后继续让公司关闭。

他有点突变的原因很简单:在实现了作为一个投资人绝大多数无法想象的成功之后,Ray发现他并不开心。让决定让自己通过让引领自己登上华尔街之巅的同样知识的严谨,纪律和直觉去学习快乐之道。推断出他想要追求一种慈善活动的生活。

在之后的25年里,他继续建立着或者领导着这样的努力,比如National Mentoring PartnershipPoints of Light FoundationAmerica's Promise, The Millennium Promise Alliance, Malaria No More,而今天,他已经是联合国为帮助根除因疟疾而产生的死亡的特别大使了。他在疟疾上的成功使得联合国秘书长请Ray去帮助监督联合国在实现所有跟千年发展目标有关的健康问题上的努力。就对世界产生积极影响而言,没有什么逼着更大的了。

我这些年从Ray身上学到了很多东西,但是我找回自己最常用的是他获取幸福的5个关键。尽管有些建议较其他建议对于生活更具挑战性(只是试着去爱vs.在下一次的争辩中你发现自己是对的),所有这些每一天都值得去追求。

希望你也能像我一样发现他这些建议的珍贵之处:

1.活在当下

2.爱比正确要好

3.当你自己思想的旁观者,尤其是当你变得情绪化的时候。

4.每天至少要感激一样东西

5.只要有机会就要去帮助他人

 

英文原文:

I've had the privilege of knowing Ray Chambers as both a mentor and a friend for almost a decade. After a legendary career on Wall Street, where he was widely acknowledged as having developed the modern day leveraged buyout (the acquisition of Gibson Greetings in 1982), he did his last major transaction just prior to the '87 crash and would go on to close the firm roughly two years later.

The reason for his somewhat abrupt transition was simple: After having achieved almost unimaginable success as an investor, Ray realized he wasn't happy. Subsequently, he dedicated himself to studying happiness with the same intellectual rigor, discipline, and intuition that led him to the top of Wall Street, and concluded he wanted to pursue a life of philanthropic activity.

Over the next 25+ years, he went on to found or lead efforts such as the National Mentoring Partnership, the Points of Light Foundation, America's Promise, The Millennium Promise Alliance, Malaria No More, and today is the special emissary to the United Nations to help eradicate deaths due to Malaria. His success with Malaria led the Secretary General to ask Ray to help oversee the UN's efforts to realize all of its health related Millennium Development Goals. As far as having a positive impact on the world, it doesn't get much bigger than that.

I've learned a lot from Ray through the years, but the advice I find myself coming back to most often is his five keys to achieving happiness. While some of the suggestions are more challenging to live by then others (just try being loving vs. being right the next time you find yourself in an argument), all are worth aspiring to on a daily basis.

Hope you find his advice as invaluable as I have:

1. Live in the moment

2. It's better to be loving than to be right

3. Be a spectator to your own thoughts, especially when you become emotional

4. Be grateful for at least one thing every day

5. Help others every chance you get
