  A group of researchers in America have done a survey.

  美国的一群研究人员做了一项调查。

  They asked a lot of people what their greatest regret is.

  他们询问了很多人,问这些人最大的遗憾是什么。

  And according to the statistics they got, 75% of the people said it's that they didn't work hard enough when they were young and as a result they had achieved nothing.

  根据他们得到的数据,75%的人都说是年轻的时候不够努力,以至于现在一事无成。

  Nowadays it seems popular for young people to deliberately stay confused and do nothing seriously.

  如今,年轻人似乎流行故意保持迷茫,做什么都不认真。

  Of course, trying does not only belong to the young or children.

  当然,努力不是专属于年轻人和孩子的东西。

  And it has nothing to do with time.

  它与时间无关。

  It's not an obligation put on your shoulder by others. It is the desire for a better self that takes root deeply in your heart. It is a positive life-attitude.

  它不是外界对你的逼迫,而是你自己内心对更进一步的渴望,是一种积极向上的生活态度。

  The most horrible thing that can happen in your life is not being unsuccessful even though you tried, but that you give up and tell yourself it is precious to be just ordinary.

  人生中最可怕的不是碌碌无为,而是你不努力还安慰自己平凡可贵。

  That's really sad.

  这真的很悲哀。

  Youth is the most precious thing you have. And it's the most precious resource at your hand.

  青春是你手上最珍贵的东西,也是你手上最珍贵的资源。

  Stay busy when you are young. Fight as much as you can. Life is hard enough even if you try. Let alone if you don't.

  在年轻的时候,应该忙起来。你应该尽可能地去奋斗。生活对于那些努力的人来说已经很艰难了,更不用说那些不努力的。

  Like what they say in Game of Thrones, winter is coming.

  就像他们在《权力的游戏》里面说的:凛冬将至。

  Winter is coming for everyone, all the time.

  凛冬正在向所有人袭来,而且是无时不刻。

  This winter's name is Time.
