リチャード・セント・ジョン「成功者だけが知る、8つの秘密!」

- Marketer, success analyst
A self-described average guy who found success doing what he loved, Richard St. John spent more than a decade researching the lessons of success -- and distilling them into 8 words, 3 minutes and one successful book. Full bio

学生にした2時間のプレゼンをここでは
00:24
This is really a two-hour presentation
I give to high school students,
3分間で話します!
00:27
cut down to three minutes.
TEDに来る時の飛行機でのこと。
00:28
And it all started one day
on a plane, on my way to TED,
7年前でした。
00:31
seven years ago.
隣は
00:32
And in the seat next to me
was a high school student, a teenager,
高校生、10代だったかな
彼女は貧乏な家の生まれで
00:37
and she came from a really poor family.
「何かで成功したい」と打ち明けてきました。
00:39
And she wanted to make
something of her life,
そして 素朴な質問をしました。
00:42
and she asked me a simple little question.
「どうしたら成功できるの?」
00:44
She said, "What leads to success?"
でも 僕は答えられず
00:46
And I felt really badly,
申し訳なくなりました。
00:47
because I couldn't give her a good answer.
その直後にTEDに来て ひらめいたのです!
00:49
So I get off the plane, and I come to TED.
見渡す限り 成功者ばかりじゃないか!
00:52
And I think, jeez, I'm in the middle
of a room of successful people!
ここで成功の秘密を聴き
00:55
So why don't I ask them
what helped them succeed,
それを子供たちに伝えよう!
00:58
and pass it on to kids?
そして7年間で500人にインタビューをした今
01:00
So here we are, seven years,
500 interviews later,
お答えします! 成功の秘密は何か?
01:04
and I'm going to tell you
what really leads to success
何がTEDメンバーを突き動かすのか?
01:07
and makes TEDsters tick.
1つ目は 熱意
01:09
And the first thing is passion.
フリーマン・トーマス「熱意こそ私の原動力」
01:11
Freeman Thomas says,
"I'm driven by my passion."
TEDメンバーは好きだからやっている。お金が目的ではない。
01:14
TEDsters do it for love;
they don't do it for money.
キャロル・コレット「人を雇ってでも 今やっている事をやりたい」
01:17
Carol Coletta says, "I would pay
someone to do what I do."
さらに面白いのは
01:20
And the interesting thing is:
熱意に従えば お金は後からついてくる。
01:22
if you do it for love,
the money comes anyway.
働く! ルパート・マードック「全力でやろう。
01:24
Work! Rupert Murdoch said
to me, "It's all hard work.
簡単な事など無いが やっていてとても楽しい」
01:28
Nothing comes easily.
But I have a lot of fun."
ルパートは「楽しい」だって?!その通り!
01:31
Did he say fun? Rupert? Yes!
TEDメンバーは 楽しみながらよく働く。
01:34
(Laughter)
01:35
TEDsters do have fun working.
And they work hard.
彼らは仕事中毒ではなく 仕事オタクです。
01:38
I figured, they're not workaholics.
They're workafrolics.
01:41
(Laughter)
特技!アレックス・ガーデン「成功するために 特技を
01:42
Good!
01:43
(Applause)
01:44
Alex Garden says, "To be successful,
put your nose down in something
持とう」
01:48
and get damn good at it."
近道はない。単に 練習!練習!練習!
01:49
There's no magic;
it's practice, practice, practice.
一点集中。 ノーマン・ジュイソン曰く
01:52
And it's focus.
01:53
Norman Jewison said to me,
「すべき事は 1つの事に集中することだ」
01:55
"I think it all has to do
with focusing yourself on one thing."
押す! デイビット・ガロ「自分を後押ししよう。
01:58
And push!
02:00
David Gallo says, "Push yourself.
物理的にも 精神的にも 押す!押す!押す!」
02:02
Physically, mentally,
you've got to push, push, push."
恥や自信の無さは 押し出そう!
02:04
You've got to push through shyness
and self-doubt.
ゴールディ・ホーン「自信が無かった頃 私はこう言っていました」
02:07
Goldie Hawn says,
"I always had self-doubts.
『不器用だし 頭も悪いから
02:10
I wasn't good enough;
I wasn't smart enough.
きっと成功なんてしないわ』
02:12
I didn't think I'd make it."
自分で後押しし続けるのは大変だから
02:14
Now it's not always easy to push yourself,
人々は母親を発明しました。(笑い声)
02:16
and that's why they invented mothers.
02:18
(Laughter)
02:19
(Applause)
フランク・ゲーリーはこう答えました!
02:21
Frank Gehry said to me,
「うちの母親がやらせた」
02:24
"My mother pushed me."
02:25
(Laughter)
役に立とう! シャーウィン・ヌーランド「医者として役に立てたのは光栄でした」
02:26
Serve!
02:28
Sherwin Nuland says,
"It was a privilege to serve as a doctor."
沢山の子どもが億万長者になりたいと言ってきます。
02:32
A lot of kids want to be millionaires.
そこでまず 答えるのは
02:34
The first thing I say is:
「自分の役に立つというのは無理だから
02:35
"OK, well you can't serve yourself;
他人の役に立つ何かを与えましょう。
02:37
you've got to serve others
something of value.
それが唯一 大金持ちになれる方法です」
02:39
Because that's the way
people really get rich."
アイデア! TEDメンバーのビル・ゲイツ曰く
02:43
Ideas!
02:44
TEDster Bill Gates says, "I had an idea:
「世界初のパソコンソフト会社を創りたいと思った」
02:47
founding the first micro-computer
software company."
それは良いアイデアだと僕も思うよ。
02:50
I'd say it was a pretty good idea.
発想力を身に付けるのに近道などありません。
02:52
And there's no magic to creativity
in coming up with ideas --
基本をやり続けるのみです。
02:55
it's just doing some very simple things.
それらはこのような事です。
02:57
And I give lots of evidence.
貫徹する!ジョー・クラウス曰く
02:59
Persist!
03:00
Joe Kraus says,
「貫徹することで私たちは成功できた」
03:01
"Persistence is the number
one reason for our success."
失敗してもやり通す。「向かい風」の中でも貫徹する!
03:04
You've got to persist through failure.
You've got to persist through crap!
「向かい風」とは 批判 無視 馬鹿 プレッシャー!
03:08
Which of course means "Criticism,
Rejection, Assholes and Pressure."
(笑い声)
03:11
(Laughter)
もっともな答えは シンプル!
03:14
So, the answer to this question is simple:
4000ドル払ってTEDに来よう!
03:18
Pay 4,000 bucks and come to TED.
03:20
(Laughter)
それが無理だとしたら これら8つを続けよう!
03:21
Or failing that, do
the eight things -- and trust me,
これら8つが成功の秘密です!
03:24
these are the big eight things
that lead to success.
03:27
Thank you TEDsters
for all your interviews!
インタビューを受けてくれたTEDメンバー 有難う!
03:30
(Applause)

About the Speaker:

Richard St. John - Marketer, success analyst
A self-described average guy who found success doing what he loved, Richard St. John spent more than a decade researching the lessons of success -- and distilling them into 8 words, 3 minutes and one successful book.

Why you should listen

Richard St. John was on his way to the TED conference when a girl on the plane asked him, "What really leads to success?" Even though he had achieved some success, he couldn't explain how he did it. So he spent the next ten years researching success and asking over 500 extraordinarily successful people in many fields what helped them succeed. After analyzing, sorting, and correlating millions of words of research, and building one of the most organized databases on the subject of success, he discovered "The 8 Traits Successful People Have in Common" and wrote the bestseller 8 To Be Great.

In his books and talks,he shares a wealth of wisdom from the world's most successful people -- knowledge that can help others succeed in their own way, whether it's escaping poverty, building a business, raising a family, or changing the world.
