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:

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.

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.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure.

Rule 5: Flipping burger is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

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.

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.

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.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
