MS Dhoni was once asked by a student How does he manage to be calm in the exam hall just before the exam. It was during the promotions of the Movie MS Dhoni: The untold story. We all know how calm and focused our captain cool is.
曾有一名學生問MS多尼(印度板球隊長)他考試前在考場是如何保持冷靜的,當時正值電影《MS多尼:不為人知的故事》宣傳期,我們都知道我們的高冷隊長有多冷靜多專注。

Here is exactly what Dhoni has replied.
下面就是多尼的回答。

““I think when you get the question paper in the exam, it’s already too late. You know, because if you have studied whole year then you must have remembered all the answers. You may miss few but ultimately, you can write answers. That is why, whenever I visit to a school and interact with the students, I have always said that it is important to be attentive in everyday class, study a bit every day. Not like, study in last two months like hell and do nothing rest of 9 or 10 months of the year.”
“我認為你考試時拿到試卷那一刻就已經太遲了,你心里都明白,因為如果你一整年都在學習,那你就一定記住了所有答案。你可能會出點錯,但最終能把答案寫上,這就是為什么每次我去學校和學生互動時總是說每天課上認真聽講、每天學一點兒很重要,而不應該一年中最后兩個月拼命學,剩下的九個月或十個月都閑著。”

This was followed by a personal experience of Dhoni which includes a very interesting story about his school? days.
接著他又講了一段親身經歷,提到了上學時一件趣事。

“Talking about my own life and relating the same with me, I think during the class 12th as you can see that in the trailer as well. We had a match and I was very hesitant in talking to my father. My mother had agreed to it but how to make my father, understand, that there is an exam but I have a match to play before that and just after the completion of the exam, I have to take a train to play another match and only then I will come back. So finally, after collecting some courage I went to my father and explained the scenario,” Dhoni said.
多尼說:“電影講的是我自己的生活,完全一致,正如你們在預告片中也能看到的,我記得是在12年級的時候,我們有一場比賽,我想跟我爸爸說又有點猶豫,媽媽同意了,但怎樣才能讓爸爸明白考試前我要參加一場比賽,考試結束后又得參加另一場比賽的訓練,然后我才能回家。最后我鼓起勇氣去跟爸爸說明情況。”

Dhoni’s father answered to him in a witty way, “My father answered it very calmly by saying that, son, if you have studied hard the whole year then one day won’t affect much and if you haven’t studied the whole year then still it won’t affect much. So, go and play.”
多尼的爸爸回答得很巧妙:“我爸爸非常冷靜地回答說:‘兒子,如果你一整年學習都很努力,那一天沒多大影響;如果你不是一整年都在學習,那一天也沒多大影響。所以去比賽吧。’”

This may not exactly sound like staying calm in difficult situations but what is important here is the context of the scenario. Difficult situations test your patience and your will power to stay focused. Whatever harm was about to happen it will happen anyway. You won’t get a say about that. What you can do is make the best of what is in your hands. Stay focused and keep doing what you would have done anyway. Prepare yourself for the worst and face the consequences of your choices with a smile on your face.
這可能聽起來并非是在困難中保持冷靜,但此處的重點是談話的背景。困難能考驗你的耐心和保持專注的意志力,該來的總是要來,對此你沒有任何發言權。你所能做的就是充分利用手中資源,保持專注并堅持做你無論如何都得做的事,做最壞的打算,面帶微笑應對你的選擇帶來的后果。

As a wise man has said… “With great difficult situation comes great opportunity”. ( Please do not ask who is that wise man :p).
正如一位智者所說:“困難越大,機遇越大”(請不要問我這話是誰說的:p)

Thanks!
謝謝!
