Essay:

 

It is true that high achievement often comes from following high expectations and low achievement often comes from setting realistic goals. However, what would happen if big ambitions and small talents happen to be in the framework of an ambitious dream? Although in some cases it is important to keep following ambitious dreams, nevertheless in other cases, people should realize that it is also important to focus on realistic goals.

的确,高成就往往来自于高期望,低成就往往来自于设定现实的目标。然而,如果大的抱负和小的才能碰巧在一个雄心勃勃的梦想的框架内,会发生什么呢?虽然在某些情况下,继续追求雄心勃勃的梦想很重要,但在其他情况下,人们应该意识到关注现实的目标也很重要。

 

Why focusing on realistic goals matters? Conventional wisdom has it that those people who are not gifted with talents and not empowered with a strong desire are not meant to fulfill their ambitious dreams. For them, indeed, the right thing to do may be to fix their eyes on realistic goals and try to achieve them without wasting time in always dreaming with closed eyes. If people are too ambitious and forget to keep their feet on the ground, they are likely to fail miserably. It may be said that a blind ambition without substance is only a fantasy that leads to nowhere near big success. Worse, an ambition that has no rest could even destroy its possessor. Based on these views, it is better to succeed in small things and feel happy rather than to be troubled with great ambitions that are far, far away from being realistic. Probably that is why many a time when ambitious dreams end, happiness begins.

为什么专注于现实的目标很重要?传统观点认为,那些没有天赋、没有强烈愿望的人并不是为了实现他们雄心勃勃的梦想。事实上,对他们来说,正确的做法可能是把他们的目光集中在现实的目标上,并努力实现它们,而不是把时间浪费在总是闭着眼睛做梦上。如果人们过于雄心勃勃,忘记了脚踏实地,他们很可能会惨败??梢运?,没有实质内容的盲目抱负只是一种幻想,几乎不会带来大的成功。更糟糕的是,一个没有休息的野心甚至可以摧毁它的拥有者?;谡庑┕鄣?,在小事情上取得成功,感到快乐,而不是被远离现实的远大抱负所困扰。也许这就是为什么很多时候,当雄心勃勃的梦想破灭时,幸福就开始了。

 

However, being ambitious is a virtue because big results require big ambitions plus, of course, big talents to succeed. Those particular people in this category can hold fast to their ambitions with a strong desire and act with enthusiasm to make success happen. So powerful are their dreams that ambitious minds are never satisfied with small results. To link ambitions to talents, it is understandable that talents without ambitions would remain only talents like birds without wings that cannot soar. That said, it is also understandable that ambitions without talents remain to be simply dreams forever. It stands to reason that big ambitions must match big talents since without having ambitious dreams one starts nothing whereas without talents one finishes nothing. That is to say, being ambitious blindly is risky, even tragic because ambitions are not only what one wishes to do but also what one can do.

然而,雄心勃勃是一种美德,因为大的成就需要大的抱负,当然,大的才能也要成功。在这类人中,那些特别的人能够以强烈的欲望和热情来保持他们的雄心壮志,并使成功发生。他们的梦想如此强大,以至于雄心勃勃的头脑永远不会满足于微小的成就。把雄心和才能联系起来,可以理解的是,没有抱负的人才只会像没有翅膀的鸟儿一样,无法飞翔。也就是说,没有才能的雄心壮志永远只是梦想,这也是可以理解的。有理由认为,伟大的抱负必须与伟大的才能相匹配,因为没有远大的梦想,就没有起点,而没有天赋,就没有终点。也就是说,盲目的野心是有风险的,甚至是悲剧性的,因为野心不仅是一个人想要做的,也是一个人能做的。

 

In conclusion, one should be prudent to balance ambitious dreams and realistic goals. Under different circumstances, ambitious dreams can be positive or negative. In some cases, always following one’s ambitious dreams may be better than always focusing on realistic goals; while in other cases, the contrary may be true.

综上所述,一个人应该谨慎地平衡雄心勃勃的梦想和现实的目标。在不同的情况下,雄心勃勃的梦想可能是积极的,也可能是消极的。在某些情况下,总是追随一个人的雄心壮志可能比总是专注于现实的目标要好;而在其他情况下,情况可能恰恰相反。
