When Warren Buffett was 25 years old, he had accumulated about $2 million in today's dollars.

当沃伦·巴菲特25岁的时候,他所积累的财富就已经相当于今天的200万美元左右。

He had achieved his childhood goal of assured financial independence.

他实现了儿时要经济独立的目标。

Everything after that, he explained in a talk at Ivey Business School in late February, "has been surplus."

“自那之后的一切都算是盈余。”他二月底在毅伟商学院的演讲中这样说道。

Today at age 84, he is the world's third wealthiest person, with an estimated net worth of over $70 billion, and has cemented his reputation as one of the greatest investors in history.

现在84岁的他是世界第三大富豪,估计净资产超过700亿美元,这也巩固了他作为历史上最大投资者之一的地位。

In the Ivey talk, Buffett was asked about his personal definition of success. He explained that he's been motivated by an inner drive to feel proud of his work and to continue improving his business, which has been the Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate since 1970.

在毅伟商学院的演讲中,巴菲特被问及他个人对成功的定义。他解释说对工作的自豪感和继续经营好他的企业是其内在驱动力。自1970年以来他就经营伯克希尔哈撒韦公司。

"The saying goes that success is about getting what you want, while happiness is about wanting what you get," he said. "For myself, happiness is more important."

他说:“俗话说成功是得到你想要的,而幸福是想要你得到的。对我而言,幸福更重要。”

Buffett advised not to judge yourself and your performance by what other people think.

巴菲特建议不要用别人的想法去判断你自己和你的表现。

"As you move along in your career, you always want to consider your inner scorecard — how you feel about your own performance and success," he said. "You should worry more about how well you perform rather than how well the rest of the world perceives your performance."

“当你发展自己的事业时,你总是想要考虑自己心里的评分卡——你对自己的表现和成功感觉如何,”他说,“你应该更多地担心自己表现有多好,而不是担心其他人觉得你的表现有多好。”

Buffett has always prioritized the success of his company over his own personal success in terms of financial returns, he said, which may be why he tells his management team that their top priority is to "zealously guard Berkshire's reputation."

在财政收入方面,相较于个人成功,巴菲特总是更看重公司所取得的成功。他说这可能就是为什么他告诉自己的管理团队首要考虑的是“积极保护伯克希尔的名誉”。

According to Buffett, true success comes from working for a purpose greater than your own well-being.

据巴菲特所言,真正的成功来自于致力实现超越个人幸福的目标。

"The most important takeaway is that you should always try to be a good person," he said.

他说:“最重要的是你应该一直寻求做一个好人。”
