A lot of people have big dreams of running their own business and being their own boss, especially in this economy where small businesses are flourishing. Do you have an idea for a business, store? I’ve had many ideas, but something always keeps me from acting on them. Usually, it’s initial capital. I always feel like I need to bide my time working at my current job, saving up as much as I can, then try to launch my own business once I have my savings built up.

很多人都梦想着自己当老板,经营自己的那份生意,又尤其是在小商家市场日益繁荣的今天。你是否想象过自己有一份小生意,有一个小商店?我有很多想法,但是总有些事让我没法拥有自己的一份生意。通常,最开始都是资金问题。我总感觉那需要占用我目前这份工作的时间,尽可能的多存钱,只有当我有存款以后我才能开始创业。

This seems like a practical approach, right? So why am I still not working for myself? Because I’m not taking risks. To get rich, I have to be my own boss. And to be my own boss, I have to take a risk, put myself out there, and make my money work for me.

似乎是可行的,对吧?可为什么到现在我还是没能自己创业呢?因为我不敢冒险。想要变得富有,必须得自己当老板。自己创业就得承担风险,就得转变自己,为自己工作赚钱。

Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard to start a software company. He was in school, learning technology without a definite study or career plan, until his friend wanted to open a business with him. So Bill became a partner in a company; then… well, you know the rest. You know what happened because he became one of the richest, most successful people in the world, all because he took a risk. He left one of the best universities in the world to start a business, and look how that paid off!

比尔盖茨从哈佛大学辍学开始创办自己的软件公司。他在校学习技术时没有一个明确的研究方向,也没有一个很清晰的职业规划,这种情况一直持续到他的朋友想和他一起创业。所以比尔盖茨成了一个公司合伙人,然后的事情,我们都知道。他成了世上的首富、成功人士之后我们都知道发生了些什么,所有的这些都是因为他愿意冒险。他离开了全世界最优秀的学府开始创业,但是也还是看见了回报。

1.You become too comfortable to take risks.

生活得太舒适就不愿意冒险

My main problem is that I have a job, which means I have income. I can pay my bills. I have a little left at the end of each month to put into savings. It’s comfortable! I don’t need to change anything. Which means I haven’t. You have to push yourself to make a change in a comfortable lifestyle. If I lost my job, I’d have no choice but to kick-start my dream in order to have a job and income! So do something to shake up your life, and see how one change can push you to take charge and change everything.

我最主要的问题就是:我有一份工作,这就是说我有收入。我还可以支付开销。每个月还能剩下一点存进银行。生活很安逸。我不必改变些什么。也等于说我真的没改变什么。逼着一直生活在安逸生活中的自己做些改变。要是我丢了工作,为了工作、保证自己有收入,除了开始创业外我别无选择。所以为改变目前的生活做点什么,看看有了一些调整之后是如何逼着你自己承担起这些,改变一切的。

2.You’re building someone else’s assets.

你是为别人创造财富

When you’re working for someone else, you’re helping them. This is well and good if you believe in the cause and just want to get by in life; but if you want to get rich, you’re only hurting yourself. You’re spending at least forty hours a week focusing on someone else. What about you, and what you want to do? Imagine if you have 40 free hours to work on something for yourself. It’s a lot of time, right? Once you get out of your comfortable career rut, you’ll have those forty hours to dedicate to yourself and your own assets. Everything you put into yourself and your business will come right back to you. The money you spend for the business can be deducted from your taxes, and any income is yours alone!

为别人工作,就是在帮他们赚钱。要是你知道这一原因,想要过这样的生活那也不错。但是要是你想要变得富有,这样伤害的就只是你自己。你每周至少为别人付出了40个小时。对你来说,你还想做什么?想想一下,要是你有40个小时的自由时间能为你自己工作是什么样。是很多时间吧?一旦你走出了自己那安逸的生活,你会有40个小时的时间贡献给你自己,为你自己创造财富。你所做的每件事,你的生意都会给你带来回报。投资花出去的钱,除了交税以外,所有的收入都是你一个人的。

3.Time is more valuable than money.

时间比金钱更重要

Money is something you can save, something you can get more of . But time is fleeting. You’ll never be able to make up time you’ve already spent. And, as we just mentioned, when you spend time working for someone else, you’re not able to use that for yourself. Sure, you’re making money while you work, but what if you finish your duties before lunch? You’re wasting the other hours of the day doing nothing, just to get that paycheck. Or, if you’re on salary, you might be working way more than forty hours, and not getting paid what you’re worth. The company you work for is in charge of your time. They dictate your schedule, they tell you when you can leave early or have to stay late, and they tell you if you can take vacation time. When you work for yourself, you might have to work harder, but you’re working for yourself, in charge of your own time.

钱是一种可以存入的、可以变得越来越多的东西。但是时光飞逝,溜走的时光怎么也不会再有。就像我之前提到过的那样,你花时间为别人工作,你就不能再把这部分时间用在自己身上。当然,工作的时候也是赚钱,但是要是你在午饭之前就把事情做完了呢?这一天剩下的时间你也一事无成,只是为了薪水。或者,你还是拿薪水,但是你的工作时间可能超过了40个小时,付给你的工资低于你所创造的价值呢。你工作的这间公司就在掌控你的时间。他们给你安排时间,他们告诉你你什么时候可以早一点离开,什么时候要晚一点,也会告诉你你是否有假期。要是为你自己工作,你可能会工作的更辛苦,但是你是为你自己工作,你可以安排自己的时间。

4.You grow too focused on saving for a rainy day.

以备不时之需,你太过关注存款

Saving is smart. We’ve all learned that, and it makes sense. But saving money isn’t helping you make money. Skipping Starbucks and making coffee at home might save you 5 bucks, but did it earn you 5 bucks? If it did, I want your coffee maker! You’re making a fixed income, and just putting money aside. Invest your money in your business, instead! Or if you’re not ready yet, invest in the stock market to watch your money grow.

存钱是明智的。我们都知道,那样做会有好处。但是存钱不会帮你生财。在星巴克喝咖啡、或是自己在家煮咖啡都能为你省下5块,但是那是你赚的5块?如果是,那我希望你煮咖啡。你是在存固定收入,把钱放好。把钱投到生意上吧。要是你还没有准备好,那就投到股票市场,看看收入的增加吧。

Yes, it’s hard to get something started, but you have to take the chance! And maybe it won’t take off immediately, but that doesn’t mean you’re a failure. Be patient, let your business find its footing and and follow through on things that will help you grow. Don’t expect everything to happen all at once, and don’t get discouraged — you can do it!

万事开头难,但是你还是要抓住机会。也许并不会马上看到回报,但是那也并不表示你就失败了。耐心点,让生意逐渐站稳脚跟,慢慢的才能看到回报。不要希望任何事情都能一蹴而就,也不要灰心丧气------你可以做到的。
