There's a great song out there by Jimmy Cliff,one of reggae's top artists, that in six words summarizes just how you succeed in life: I want! I do! I get! These six words are a very powerful way of connecting what you want with what you will achieve.
First comes wanting something—a better life for yourself,your family, more money, a better job, whatever it is you dream about and long for. You desire it, you dream about it, you daydream about it, you yearn for it.
But that's not enough. Next and this the part too many people forget about—comes the doing. All of the wanting in the world is not going to move you one inch closer to what you want: you have to do.You have to find a better job, change jobs, take risks, write software, try new things, stop doing old things, go to college, work, act, do.The doing is the absolutely indispensable connection between what you want and what you get.
但光想还不够，下一步，往往也是大部分人忽视掉的这一步---付诸于行动。世上最遗憾的事莫过于梦想自己 不会向你的方向多靠近哪怕一英寸，因此你必须主动去接近梦想。于是你不得不去找一份更好的工作、经历跳槽、承担风险、编写软件、尝试新鲜事物、不再走老 路、去上学、去工作、去做事...从梦想到获得的路途中，行动是一座必经的桥梁。
Finally, if you keep doing what needs to be done, if you keep adjusting what you do to move you closer to what you want, you get. Maybe not easily, maybe not as quickly as movies and television portray,but it will come.
One final philosophical note about these six words: notice that "I" is three of them? Not what others want, not what others say you are "supposed" or "should" do. What's more, no one is going to do it for you.
You are the key to making these six words work.
