演讲者:Larry Ellison,甲骨文软件公司CEO,身价700亿美元。他在32岁以前还一事无成,开始创业时只有1200美元,却使得Oracle公司连续12年销售额每年翻一番,成为世界上第二大软件公司,他自己也成为硅谷首富。


Growing up in a lower middle-class community on the south side of Chicago, virtually everyone important in my life, my family, my teachers, my girlfriend, wanted me to be a doctor. Overtime, their dreams became my dreams. 

芝加哥南部的一个底层中产阶级社区,这就是我长大的地方。在我的生命中,几乎所有重要的人,我的家人,我的老师,我的女友,都想让我成为一位医生。久而久之,他们的梦想,变成了我的梦想。

They convinced me I should be a doctor, but as hard as I tried, I couldn't do it. I was unable to make myself into the person that I thought I should be, so I decided to stop trying. I was 21 years old when I dropped out of college. 
他们让我相信,我应该成为一位医生。但是,无论我多么努力,我都做不到,我无法变成理想中的自己。所以,我不再尝试这样做。那时,我21岁,从大学辍学了。

During my California springs and summers, I spent most of my days in the High Sierras in Yosemite Valley, working as a river guide and a rock-climbing instructor. I loved those jobs, but unfortunately, they didn't pay that well. So, I also got a job working a couple of days a week as a computer programmer back in Berkeley. 
在加州度过的那几年,大多数时候,我都待在约塞米蒂峡谷的西亚拉山区,我在那儿当河道向导,当攀岩教练。我爱这些工作,然而,不幸的是,它们带来的薪水并不高。所以,我也在当伯克利当程序员,每周在那儿工作几天。

I had learned program in college. I didn't love programming but it was fun and I was good at it. I started taking classes at UC Berkeley. I took several classes, but the only one I can remember was a sailing class taught at Berkeley marina. When my class was over, I wanted to buy a sailboat.
