I am grateful to Barry who's there behind the scenes.

我感激巴里,他在幕后

You don't see him much. But he's responsible for so much what's happening for his support, for how humble he is, doing all that.

大家不常见到他,但这个课堂很多东西都要靠他,感激他的支持,他的谦虚,为我们做了这一切

And I am grateful for my students, because it wouldn't be a class- I wouldn't be here today,

我感激我的学生,因为没有你们,我今天就不能站在这里讲课

doing what I love to, what I care about most if you weren't here. So thank you. I am grateful.

做我喜欢做的事,如果没有你们,我就做不了我最喜欢做的事。谢谢你们,我感激你们

Now the key with this is to do it as well. Yes is it cheesy? Absolutely.

这样做的关键是坚持。这样做矫情吗?绝对矫情

Does it make a difference? Absolutely.

这样做能起作用吗?绝对能

You know every night I also do it with my kid, with David.

我还会每天晚上和我的孩子大卫这么做

And how do I do it? I ask David- he's three and a half years old, "what was fun for you today?"

我怎么做?我问大卫,他现在三岁半了,"你今天有什么开心事?"

And he tells me and he asks me, "what was fun for you today?"

他回答我,然后又问我,"你今天有什么开心事?"

I learned about it from a friend of mine who, a hand worker- who was here just a couple of classes ago. He was visiting.

这个方法是我从一个朋友那里学来的,他是手工匠人,他前几节课有来过,他来看我

And I came over for dinner one day. He heard me speak about this.

有一天我去他家吃晚餐,他听到我讲课的内容

And he said, "I want to show you something."

他跟我说,"我有些东西要给你看"

And he has two young kids. And they were standing around and talking about the five grateful, things for which they were grateful.

他有两个小孩。他们都站在旁边说着,五件他们感激的事

These were young kids. Daniel and Maya.

他们都是很小的孩子丹尼尔和马娅

And I looked at it and I started to cry.

我看着他们,我感动得流泪了

It was so moving and so touching.

非常温馨感人

And I've been doing it ever since with my kids.

从那时起我也和我的孩子这样做

My wife do it every day on regular basis. She puts up with my cheesiness.

我妻子也会定期和我这样做,她容忍我的矫情

It helps. It works because we don't take the good things in our life for granted.

但这样做很有用,因为我们不会对好事习以为常
