【商業智慧】Sam Altman最常給人的建議：勇於直接表達自己想要的 Sam Altman’s Most Frequent Advice: Ask People for What You Want
敢於表達需求和渴望，往往是成功的關鍵。近日，OpenAI的CEO Sam Altman在Bill Gates的播客“Unconfuse Me”中分享了他最常給人的建議：勇於直接表達自己想要的。
Being bold in expressing needs and desires is often key to success. Recently, Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, shared his most common advice on Bill Gates' podcast "Unconfuse Me": be brave to directly express what you want.
Altman believes that many people fail to pursue what they truly want because of the fear of rejection. This fear not only limits the expression of individual potential but also lets many opportunities slip away. He points out that expressing one's goals and needs directly and clearly often brings unexpected positive outcomes. A study published in the "Journal of Personality and Social Psychology" shows that people tend to underestimate others' willingness to accept requests, often underestimating others' willingness to help.
In his 2019 blog post "How to Be Successful," Altman mentioned that 'resolute will' is an important factor for success. He encourages people not to merely accept the status quo but to actively seek change. Altman encourages people to directly pursue their goals, even if it means facing rejection and disappointment. He believes that although most attempts may not result in getting what one wants, the outcomes can be surprisingly good when successful.
Altman also emphasized the importance of risk-taking and flexibility in adapting. In his view, success is not just the result of planning and strategy, but a process of continuous trying and quick adjustment of direction. He believes that it is only through constant trial and rapid adaptation that we can truly understand our abilities and limits.
Don't be afraid to directly express your needs, don't fear challenges and changes. Success often belongs to those who dare to ask, take action, and can quickly adapt to new environments. Let us learn to face our fears, embrace change, and prove our abilities and determination through action.
