顶级投资人 雷·达里奥 作品《原则》8- 第二章 你的第二个重要选择

People who confuse what they wish were true with what is really true create distorted pictures of reality that make it impossible for them to make the best choices. They typically do this because facing “harsh realities” can be very difficult. However, by not facing these harsh realities, they don’t find ways of properly dealing with them. And because their decisions are not based in reality, they can’t anticipate the consequences of their decisions.

那些把“自己期望的真相”与“事实上的真相”混淆的人,会因为真实情况被扭曲,而无法做出最佳选择, 他们这样做是因为直面“残酷的现实”确实很难做到。但不直面这些残酷的现实,人们就没法找到从容应对这些现实的办法。如果决策不是基于真实情况,那么决策的结果就无法预测。

An example of this is what discussed earlier: wanting to save the wildebeest from the hyenas. When you don’t want to face what’s really happening, you can’t make sound decisions.

我之前谈过有人想从土狼手中救回羚羊的例子就是如此。若你回避现实,是不可能做出明智决定的。

In contrast, people who know that understanding what is real is the first step toward optimally dealing with it make better decisions.

相比之下,能明白实事求是从容应对困难的第一步的人,就会做出更明智的选择。

So, remember…

所以,记住。。。

Ask yourself, “Is it true?”

问问自己:这是真的吗?

…because knowing what is true is good.

因为了解真实情况是大有好处的。

How much do you let what you wish to be true stand in the way of seeing what is really true?

(问自己)你在多大程度上让“期望的真实情况”阻碍了自己认清事实真相呢?
