Words of Advice from Bill Gates:
Life is wonderful, but it is also challenging at times. Bill Gates  is one of the most successful businessman in history. He recently gave the following advice to a group of students about 11 things they may not learn in school. He talked about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a full generation of kids with no concept of reality. This concept will set them up for failure in the real world. We want all of you to be very successful, so consider some of his words:

比爾蓋茲給的叮嚀:
人生是美好的,但它有時也是富有挑戰性的。比爾蓋茲是人類歷史上最成功的企業家之一,他最近給了一群學生以下 11 項他們在學校學不到的叮嚀。這些叮嚀敘述著正面、鼓勵的教法所教出的只是一手對現實社會沒有概念的世代。而這樣的概念只會引導他們走向現世生活中的失敗。我們希望你們都能非常的成功,所以請好好的思考他以下所說的:

Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!
規則一:人生並不公平 ─ 適應它吧!

Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
規則二:這世界並不會在乎你的自尊。這世界只會等到你有成就時才會允許你感到自滿。

Rule 3: You will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone, until you earn both.
規則三:你不可能在高中畢業一年後馬上有四萬美元的年薪,也不因為你有手機就是副總經理,除非這兩個都是你自己掙來的。

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure.
規則四:如果你覺得你的老師很嚴苛,等到你有老闆你就知道了。他可沒有任職保障期間。

Rule 5: Flipping burger is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping they called it opportunity.
規則五:煎漢堡肉並不損你的尊嚴,你的祖父母對煎漢堡肉有不同的定義,他們稱之為「機會」。

Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
規則六:如果你把事情搞砸了,這不是你父母的錯,所以不要在錯誤上自怨自艾,而是從中記取教訓。

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they now are. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents' generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
規則七:在你出生前,你的父母並不像現在那麼的無趣。他們之所以如此,是因為不斷的在付你的帳單、洗你的衣服還有聽著你說自己是有多酷。所以在你從你父母那代的餘毒中極力的拯救你僅存的雨林時,先把自己的衣櫃給整理乾淨吧。

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
規則八:你的學校或許已經不再分優等生及劣等生,但人生並沒有。在某些學校已經廢除不及格的紅字,他們還會給你很多次機會直到你答對,這跟現世生活壓根沒有一丁點的相似之處。

Rule 9:Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.
規則九:人生並不是以學期來劃分的。你沒有暑假,而且很少有老闆願意幫助你發現自我。這你得自己找時間作。

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
規則十:電視裡演的不是真實的人生。在真實的人生中,人們是必須離開咖啡店去上班的。

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
規則十一:友善的對待討厭鬼,你有天說不定得在他們其中一個底下工作。
