Bill was a middle school teacher in Utah, USA. Once, he assigned homework to the students, required them to write a composition about their own future ideal.

比爾是美國猶他州的一名中學教師。有一次,他給學生布置了一道作業,要求學生就自己的未來理想寫一篇作文。

A boy named Robert spent half a night writing seven pages to describe his dream in detail, which told that one day he would have a ranch while he drew a ranch sketch map covering an area of 200 acres with the stable, runway and plantation, as well as the building and indoor plane design.

一個名叫羅伯特的男孩用了半夜時間寫了7頁,詳盡描述了自己的夢。他夢想將來有一天擁有一個牧場,他還畫了一幅占地200英畝的牧馬場示意圖,有馬廄、跑道和種植園,還有房屋建築和室內平麵設計圖。

The next day he excitedly handed in his assignment to his teacher. However, when the homework was returned, the teacher ticked a great "F" on the top right corner of the first page, and let Robert see him. After class, Robert went to see the teacher. "Why did I only get F?"

第二天,他興衝衝地將這份作業交給了老師。然而,作業批回時,老師在第一頁右上角打了個大大的“F”,並讓羅伯特去找他。下課後,羅伯特去找老師:“我為什麼隻得了F?

The teacher looked up and down the boy, saying earnestly, "Robert, I admit your assignment was done very seriously, but your mind is too far away from the real world, too impractical. You know your father is just a horse trainer, even without the fixed house or capital at all and often moving while a ranch has to need a lot of money. Can you have so much money?" The teacher finally said, if Robert was willing to do the homework again to determine a realistic goal, he could give him a new score.

老師打量了一下眼前的男孩,認真地說:“羅伯特,我承認你這份作業做得很認真,但你的理想離現實太不切實際了。你知道你父親隻是一個馴馬師,連固定的房子都沒有,全家經常搬遷,根本沒有什麼資本,而要擁有一個牧馬場,得要很多的錢,你能有那多錢嗎?”老師最後說,如果羅伯特願重新做這份作業,確定一個現實目標, 可以重新給他打分。

Robert took back his homework and went to ask his father. His father stroked his son's head and said, "My son, you should make your own decision. However, you have to be cautious, because this decision is very important to you!"

羅伯特拿回自己的作業,去問父親。父親摸摸兒子的頭說:“孩子,你自己拿主意吧。不過,你得慎重,這個決定對你來說很重要!

Robert kept this homework all the time, the "F" still very big and very fulsome, but it was the very assignment that encouraged Robert to continuously surpass the journey of carving out, and many years later Robert finally achieved his dream.

羅伯特一直保存著那份作業,那份作業上的“F"。 依然很大很刺眼,但正是這份作業鼓勵著他一步一個不斷超越創業的征程,多年後羅伯特終於如願以地實現了自己的夢想。

When Bill led his 30 students to step into this ranch covering an area of more than 200 acres, he shed tears of repentance. "Robert, now I realize that at that time when I was a teacher, like a dream-thief, who had stolen many children's dreams, but your tenacity and bravery keep you never giving up your own dream!"

當比爾帶著30名學生踏進這個占地200多英畝的牧馬場時,流下了懺悔的淚水。“羅伯特,現在我才意識到,當時我做老師時,就像一個偷夢人,偷走了很多孩子的夢,但你堅韌勇放,一直沒有放棄自己的夢!”

Keep your dream, brave to go on with it and you reach the other side of success in advance.

守住自己的夢,勇敢地走下去,你就會比別人提前到達成功的彼岸。
