碧昂絲給懷疑自己的你 : 不要和現狀妥協,要勇敢跨出舒適圈

PeraPera | 2020年12月13日

從什麼時候開始,我們睜開眼只看見自己的缺點,數落自己不夠漂亮、不夠聰明、沒有才華,和他人耀眼的成就相比時,不禁自慚形穢。碧昂絲(Beyoncé)告訴我們每個人都有專長,只是要找到自己的舞台,就像愛因斯坦說:「每個人都身懷天賦,但如果用會不會爬樹的能力來評定一隻魚,它會終其一生以為自己愚蠢。」苟且窩居於不合適的環境的成本就是終生庸庸碌碌。碧昂絲(Beyoncé)鼓勵2020的畢業生,勇敢去追尋那真正對自己有意義的事,這段路上閒言閒語多、挫折更多,但這都是過程,莫在意批評,莫畏懼失敗,無須和他人比較,而是要認真對待自己。
 
 

Maybe you did not follow the path that was expected of you, and you probably questioned everything about your decision. But know that stepping out is the best thing you can do for self-discovery. I know how hard it is to step out and bet on yourself. There was a pivotal turning point in my life when I chose to build my own company many years ago. 

可能你選擇的道路不符合別人對你的期待,亦或你可能懷疑自己做的決定,但你要知道,跨出第一步是自我探索的最佳示範,我知道跨出去、跟自己賭未來,是很困難的。我生命中也曾有關鍵的時刻,就是當我多年前想自組公司。

Not enough Black women had a seat at the table, so I had to go and chop down that wood and build my own table. Then I had to invite the best there was to have a seat. That meant hiring women, men, outsiders, underdogs, people that were overlooked and waiting to be seen.  Many of the best creatives and business people, who although supremely qualified and talented, were turned down over and over as executives at major corporations because they were female or because of racial disparity. And I’ve been very proud to provide them with a place at my table. 

黑人婦女很少有機會佔有一席之地,所以我得自己砍材製作自己的桌子,然後我邀請最佳人選跟我坐在桌邊。我邀請女人、男人、外人、弱勢者、或那些被忽視但被等著發掘的人。很多最棒的創造者或商業界的人士,雖有眩人的資歷和才華,在主要企業卻不斷地被拒絕,不能當執行者,原因只是因為她們是婦女,或種族偏見。而我很驕傲地為這些人提供一個平台。

One of the main purposes of my art for many years has been dedicated to showing the beauty of Black people to the world, our history, our profundity, and the value of Black lives. I’ve tried my best to pull down the veil of appeasement to those who may feel uncomfortable with our excellence.

我自己創作藝術的目的之一就是要呈現非裔人民的美給這個世界,顯現我們的歷史,深度,和生命價值。我盡力扯下某些人視而不見的假面具,那些人因為非裔人民的成就而感到不自在。

To the young women, our future leaders, know that you’re about to make the world turn. I see you. You are everything the world needs. Make those power moves. Be excellent. And to the young kings, lean into your vulnerability and redefine masculinity. Lead with heart. There are so many different ways to be brilliant. I believe you and every human being is born with a masterful gift. Don’t make the world make you feel that you have to look a certain way to be brilliant. And no, you don’t have to speak a certain way to be brilliant. But you do have to spread your gift around the planet in a way that is authentically you.

對年輕女生,我們未來的領袖,你們即將改變這世界。我看得到你們! 世界需要你們,讓力量顯現,表現出最優秀自己。年輕的領導者們,去接受柔軟脆弱的一面,讓”英雄氣慨”有新的定義。讓你的”心”引領你,用不同的方式去呈現”卓越”,我相信你和每個人都有大師級的天賦,不要將自己跳進世俗的卓越那一套標準,不需要,不需要那個陳年老套了。你需要的是在世界發展天賦,真摯的作自己!

To all those who feel different. If you’re part of a group that’s called ‘other,’ a group that does not get the chance to be center stage, build your own stage and make them see you. Your queerness is beautiful, your blackness is beautiful. Your compassion, your understanding, your fight for people who may be different from you, is beautiful. I hope you continue to go into the world and show them that you will never stop being yourself. That it’s your time now, make them see you. Now, if you’ve ever been called dumb, unattractive, overweight, unworthy, untalented, well, so have I.

如果覺得自己與眾不同,但總被當成次要角色,沒機會站到舞台中央,那就建造自己的舞台,讓別人見到你。你的與眾不同是一種美,你的膚色是一種美,你的熱情、你的理解,你勇於為與你不同的人奮戰,這些都是美麗的。我希望你在這世界繼續前進,顯示他人,你會為了自己的與眾不同堅持下去。你的時刻到來,他們會看見你。所以,你現在或許被稱為愚蠢、沒吸引力、過胖,沒價值、沒才華,喔,這些我可都經歷過。

Whatever you do, don’t let negativity of people projecting their own self-doubts on you, deter you from your focus. I know those moments are painful, and you’re human and it hurts like hell, but now is the time to turn those criticisms into fuel and motivation to become a beautiful beast.

不管你做甚麼,不要讓消極負面的人投射出他們對自己的懷疑在你身上,他們讓你失去專注力,我知道那些時刻讓你難受,你也是人,會感覺無比痛苦,但要把批評當成你成功的養分,你的兌變就像是野獸最終成為美女。

Respect is everything. There’s no successful relationship without respect, nor a successful movement if the basic principle is not respect. The world will respect you as much as you respect yourself. I’m often asked, “What’s your secrect to success?” The shorter answer, “Put it that work.” There may be more failures than victories. Yes, I’ve been blessed to have 24 Grammys, but I’ve lost 46 times. That meant rejections 46 times. Please don’t ever feel entitled to win, just keep working harder. Surrender to the cards you are dealt. It is from the surrunder that you get your power. Losing can be the best motivator to get you even bigger wins. So never compare yourself to anyone else.

“尊敬”重於一切,失去這個基本原則,就失去了成功的人際關係或可能的成就。自重而後別人才會尊敬你。我常被問到”你的成功祕訣是什麼?” 簡單地說,”投入更多時間和努力!” 失敗會比勝利多,的確如此,我榮幸得了24次葛萊美獎,但我輸了46次,也就是46次被拒於門外。千萬別認為勝利是理所當然,你能做的就是認真工作,不管你的人生拿到什麼牌,盡力面對,你越能面對自己的處境就越有力量。”失敗”是你贏得更大勝利的動力,所以,不用跟任何人比較。
