Use Fear As Your Strength

Recently, I did an interview on my video series with a lady named Laura who was one of my skydiver students . The reason why I interviewed her was because it turns out that she has done almost 500 skydiving jumps to date, all before turning the age of 25. Needless to say, this really impressed me.


最近,我用摄影机采访了一位名叫劳拉的女子。她是我的跳伞学员。我采访她是因为25岁之前,她已经完成了将近500多个特技跳伞动作。

During our interview, she mentioned that as a child she was actually very scared of heights. But she claims that fear can be used as a strength —which I found very interesting. Especially because despite her fear, she became an avid skydiver.

采访的过程中,她提到自己小时候非常恐高。但她声称可以将恐惧为人所用—这一点我觉得很有意思。她明明恐高,却成为了一名狂热的特技跳伞运动员。

When I interpret this further and think about my own life, I realize that it is indeed true that one can use fear to his or her advantage. Fear can give you some direction on what areas of your life to work on. In many cases, the challenges that have some fear element to them can turn out to be very positive in the end…if you choose to work through them.

当我进一步解释这句话,并且开始思考我的人生时,我意识到人真的可以把恐惧转化自身的优势。恐惧可以指给我们人生努力的方向。在很多例子中,带有恐惧因子的挑战都被证明是正面的、积极的。。。只要你肯直面恐惧

Fear Can Gave Us Direction  恐惧会给我们方向

The fear of heights that Laura had gave her some direction to take her first skydiving jump. She ended up liking it so much that she pursued this activity with a great passion.

劳拉的恐高症指引她第一尝试特技跳伞。结果她喜欢上了这项运动并且带着巨大的热情投入到这项运动当中。

In my case, I had a fear of water —being a terrible swimmer as a child. But somehow I pushed myself during my teen years in the swimming pool and eventually became a certified scuba diver. Going on dives —sometimes over 100 feet deep —has enabled me to experience the beautiful underwater marine world, which I consider a deep privilege.

举一个我的例子,当我还是一名糟糕的儿童游泳员时,我怕水。即便这样,在我少年的时候,我还是把自己推进泳池里,最后成为一名专业的潜水员。继续潜水—有时候超过100英尺了—能让我置身美丽的海底世界。这就是“深度”的特权。

I also had an extreme fear of dogs when I was young. But seeing some of my friends who seemed to be getting so much out of having dogs, I was compelled to investigate the world of pet ownership further. I became a dog owner in 1979 and today I just can’t imagine a life without having any dogs at home.

年轻的时候我也很怕狗。看着我的朋友们渐渐的养起狗来,我强迫自己深入了解宠物的世界。1979年,我也养狗了,直到今天我都不能想象如果我的家里没有狗会怎样。

Let Fear Work For You 让恐惧为你所用

It’s natural that we all have certain fears in our lives. But instead of avoiding them all of the time, perhaps take some efforts to challenge yourself and let fear work for you. Force yourself, perhaps with the help of other people with teamwork, to work through some of these fears.

我们的生活中肯定存在一些恐惧。不要一直逃避它们,或许我们可以努力地挑战自己,让恐惧为我们所用。也可以在团队其他成员的帮助下,强迫自己完成一些恐惧的事情。

You never know what the outcomes might be. The end result could be some new-found success in your life that you never would have had .

不做,你就永远不知道结果。做了,你可能获得你从没有过的成功。
