If you have always felt that success is elusive, perhaps it’s time to try something new. Here are 10 success mantras that are useful tips in all that you do.
如果你一直觉得成功遥不可及，也许是时候尝试些新东西了。这里有 10 条成功魔咒，对于任何你做的事都是有用的诀窍。
#1 Forget Luck, Live by Intent
＃ 1 忘记运气，用心生活
Sadhguru: A few things may happen by chance. But if you wait for the chance, good things will happen to you only when you are in your grave because things may take their time. Even quantum theory says that if you try, you can actually walk through a wall once in a “zillion” times because there is a pulsation of particles happening and you may walk through. It is just that before you reach that one zillionth time, you’ll have a cracked skull. When you live by chance, you also live in fear and anxiety. When you live by intent and capability, it does not matter what is happening or not happening, at least you are in control of what is happening to you. It is a more stable life.
#2 Stop Fixating on Failure
＃ 2 不要总盯着失败
Sadhguru: For a committed man, there is no such thing as failure. If you fall down 100 times in the day, it is 100 lessons learnt. If you commit yourself like this to creating what you really care for, your mind gets organized. Once your mind gets organized, your emotions will get organized because the way you think is the way you feel. Once your thought and emotion are organized, your energies and your very body will get organized. Once all these four are organized in one direction, your ability to create and manifest what you want is phenomenal. You are the creator in many ways.
萨古鲁：对于一个坚定的人是没有失败可言的。如果你一天跌倒 100 次，你就能得到 100 个教训。如果你致力于创造你真正渴望的，你的大脑就会很有条理，一旦你的大脑条理化了，你的情感也会变得如此，因为你的思考方式就是你的感受方式。一旦你的头脑和情感都有条有理了，你的能量和整个身体都将有条有理。一旦这四个方面都往同一方向组织起来，你的创造能力和实现自己想要的东西的能力就会变得非凡。在很多方面，你就是创造者。
#3 Work with Clarity
＃ 3 清晰的视野
Sadhguru: What a human being needs is clarity, not confidence. If you want to walk through a crowd of people, if your vision is clear and you can see where everybody is, you can just walk through the whole crowd without touching anyone. If your vision is not clear but you have confidence, you will walk over everybody. Because there is no clarity, people think that confidence is a good substitute. It just cannot be. Let’s say you make all the major decisions in your life like this: get yourself a coin, flip it. If it’s heads, it’s one way, tails the other. It works 50% of the time. If you are right only 50% of the time, there are only two professions that you can keep – either a weather man or an astrologer. You cannot keep any other job on this planet.
萨古鲁：人需要的是明晰，而不是信心。假设你想穿过人群，如果你的视野清晰，你能看清楚所有人的位置，你就可以穿过人群而不撞到任何人。如果你没有清晰的视野，唯有信心，你会踩到所有人。因为缺乏清晰的视野，人们以为信心是个很好的替代品，完全不是这样。打个比方，如果你生命中所有的重大决定你都靠投掷硬币，正面就选择这条路，反面就选择另外一条路，那有一半的时候你会碰对，但是如果你的正确率只有一半，那么只有两种工作你能做 —— 预报天气或者帮人算命，地球上别的工作恐怕你都做不好。
#4 Embrace the People and Things You Dislike
＃ 4 拥抱你不喜欢的人和事
Sadhguru: To handle different kinds of situations in our lives, we need different kinds of identities. If you are fluid about it, if you can change from one to another gracefully, then you can play your role to the hilt and still have no problem with it. But for most people, their personality is like a rock. It sits on them all the time and makes them suffer anything that does not fit into its ambit.
If you have to break that, you have to do something in reverse. This is a simple thing you can do: team up with somebody that you do not like. Spend time with that person, very lovingly, joyfully. Learn to do things that you do not like, be with people that you do not like, and still live your life sensibly, lovingly and joyfully.
#5 Drop Your Calculations
＃ 5 丢掉算计
Sadhguru: There is no need to aspire to greatness. If you make the focus and ambit of your life well beyond the concerns of who you are, you will anyway be a great human being. If you look at certain people, greatness happened to them not because they were seeking to be great, but because their way of looking at life was way beyond “what about me?”
萨古鲁：无需渴求伟大。如果你生命的中心和幅度远远超出了对自己的考虑，你无论如何都会成为一个伟大的人。看看那些伟人，他们之所以伟大不是因为追求伟大，而是因为他们看待问题的方式远远超出 “ 那我怎么办 ” 的考虑。
If you just drop this one calculation, “What about me?” from your head, and function to the best of your ability, in some way you will be great because you will naturally be looking at, “What can I do about all the life around me?” So, you will naturally enhance your capabilities because there is so much to do!
如果你能从脑海里清除 “ 那我怎么办 ” 的算计，发挥自己最大的能力，在某个方面上你会变得伟大，因为你自然会这样想， “ 我能对身边的生命做些什么？ ” 于是，你的能力自然能得到提高，因为有这么多事要做！
#6 Yoga For Success
＃ 6 成功瑜伽
Sadhguru: Both the neurological and energy systems branch out in a big way between the shoulder blades and above. So, keeping the neck region in a good condition is very important. Within 3-4 minutes of doing these neck practices, you will distinctly see that you are much more alert. There is a higher level of neuronal regeneration, and memory and intellectual sharpness also improve.
萨古鲁：人的神经和能量系统在肩膀及以上的部分都有丰富的分支。因此，保持颈部区域的良好状态非常重要。花 3 到 4 分钟时间活动颈部，你将明显看到，你会变得更有觉知，而神经的再生、记忆和智力的敏锐度也将得到提升。
#7 Be Equanimous and Exuberant
＃ 7 沉稳而富有活力
Sadhguru: To be successful in the world, what you fundamentally need is prowess of the mind and the body. If you want to harness the mind, one of the most important qualities is equanimity. Equanimity gives you access to different dimensions of the mind. If there is no equanimity, your ability to use the mind is greatly reduced. Another important quality is on the level of your energy – you need exuberance, both physiologically and internally. Only when your energies are exuberant do you have the ability to tide over obstacles in day-to-day life and move towards your success. If equanimity and exuberance are brought into your mind and body, success will come to you much more easily.
萨古鲁：要在这个世界成功，你需要驾驭头脑和身体。如果你要驾驭头脑，最重要的特质是沉稳。沉稳使得你可以接触到头脑不同的层面。失去沉稳，你使用头脑的能力将显著下降。另一个重要的特质在能量的层面 – 你需要充满活力，无论是身体上还是内在。只有当你的能量热情洋溢时，你才有能力跨越生命中日复一日的挑战，走向成功。如果头脑和身体都能沉稳而富有活力，你的成功会轻而易举。
#8 Tune Up Your Insight
＃ 8 提升你的洞察力
Sadhguru: Insight means you pay attention to life around you in such a way that you are able to see things that most people cannot see. If there is no insight, there is nothing to follow and toil for. Mediocrity can be transformed into extraordinary activity, only when there is a deep insight into something.
#9 Find Your Inspiration
＃ 9 发现你的灵感
Sadhguru: Another important dimension is to constantly be inspired. Look at the reason why you are doing what you are doing and see the larger dimension of it, the contribution you make through every little thing you do in your life. Every action that human beings perform is a contribution to some dimension of this world. Whatever you may be doing, someone could be benefitted by it. Being conscious of your contribution will keep you inspired.
#10 Set the Gold Standard in Integrity
＃ 10 诚实守信
Sadhguru: Integrity is important because when you want to function in the world, how much trust you generate with the people you interact with determines how easy or hard your daily efforts will be. If there is an atmosphere of trust, your ability to work will be greatly enhanced – simply because everyone will pave the way for you rather than setting up impediments.
萨古鲁：诚信之所以重要是因为，当你在世界上运作时，你平日里的工作难易与否取决于你与人互动时产生的信任度。在一个信任的空间里，你工作的能力会显著增强 -- 只是因为，每个人都会为你铺路而不是设置障碍。
