本期内容:

As we go through life we have relationships that don't work out, jobs that just aren't right, exams that we flunk, initiatives that don't succeed. The more new things we try the more failures we are likely to have. In fact, the only way to avoid failure is to do nothing new. The important thing is how we deal with failure.

参考译文:这一生,我们总会遇到纠缠不清的人际关系、不甚满意的工作、未通过的考试,或者不曾实现的计划。尝试越多,挫折也越多。除非什么都不干,否则难免遭受打击。
