温馨提示

1.     著名的18世纪英国文学家山姆.约翰说,“自信是事业成功的必要条件。”给这段话发表点议论。

2.    你是一个自信的人吗?如果是,那么是什么使你自信?如果不是,是什么让你丧失自信心?

3.    依你的观点,怎样才能使一个丧失自信心的人找回自信? 

文本

一位著名的外科医生用他自己的经历讲述自信心的重要性。

 

外科医生的成功之道

诺兰博士

 

1)    还在我是个住院主治医师接近尾声的那个年头,我曾经不止一次地问过自己,一个医生究竟怎样才能准确地意识到就在那个时候他已经是一名“外科医生”了?

2)    我总结下来,回答就是自信。当你可以面对自己说,“没有一个手术病人我无法胜任的,我可以做得跟任何其他医生一样好”---然后呢,还不用等到然后,你就已经是一位外科医生了。我已经切中要点了。

3)    例如,我们几乎每天晚上都会遭遇一个急诊病人。这一年当中的最初的几个月里,听到电话铃声就闻风丧胆。我知道,这将意味着要作另一个重大决定。经常,我告诉了怀特和拉里在遇到特殊情况怎样处理,我却一直难以入眠。我审阅了所有的病历,还在质疑自己是不是作了个错误的决定,这种情形也不是一次两次的事了。不止一次地在半夜2-3点钟醒来后将近个把小时睁着眼睛就是睡不着觉,然后起床、穿衣、亲自开车到医院看望我的病人。这已经成为了能够让自己得到解脱的唯一办法。

4)    现在,在我当住院医生的最后几个月里,睡眠意境不再困扰我了。但让有状况让我不能确定自己的决定就是正确的,即便是这样,我还是学着接受时刻困扰外科医生的问题,一个人永远也无法完全解决的问题---然而我可以挺过来了。所以,一旦我作出了深思熟虑的决定,就不再犹豫了。根据我的知识和经验,审阅已经不再有任何可以阻止我的决定,这是一种很好的感觉。

5)    进了手术室也同样要自信。我知道自己有处理各种手术状况的知识、技能、实务操作经验。当我开膛破肚的时候,再也不会出现忐忑不安的情况。我知道即便遇上了无法预见的疑难杂症,我都能应对。我曾经为腹腔穿刺、给肺部穿刺,吓得我汗流浃背。我已经淌了五年的汗水,现在已经不需要再继续流汗了。

6)    我也不再害怕犯错误了。我知道,当我出诊的时候,有那么一两次不可避免地出错,给不该手术的开刀了,或者等在那里但病人急需手术这种时候也还是会有的。五年前---甚至一年前---我还不能独立作战假如我不得不独立承担一个判断上的错误,现在我可以了。但我让然害怕犯错---但我会尽量避免这一切---我知道那是患者生命的一部分。我可以淡定地接受这个事实,因为我知道假如我不能避免错误,那也就不会有更多手术的机会了。

7)    这些听起来很自负而且我猜想是的--- 但是一个外科医生需要自负。他需要这样来鼓励自己在遇到困扰他的艰难时刻不再犹豫、彷徨,这也是临床医学的一部分。他必须自我感觉自己就好比是天下最好的外科医生。称作自负也好---称它是自信也罢,什么都行,我具备了。

转载英文原文P138:

Warm-Up Questions

 1.     Samuel Johnson, the famous 18th century English scholar, says,"Self-confidence is the requisite(必要条件)to great undertakings(事业)."Give a brief comment on this saying.

2.    Are you a self-confident person?If yes, what has made you confident of yourself? If no, what has made you lacking in self-confidence?

3.    In your opinion,how can a person lacking in self-confidence become self-confident? 

Text

A famous surgeon tells about the importance of self-confidence from his own experience.

The Making of a Surgeon

Dr. Nolen

 

1)    How does a doctor recognize the point in time when he is finally a "surgeon"?As my year as chief resident drew to a close I asked myself this question on more than one occasion.

2)    The answer,I concluded,was self-confidence. When you can say to yourself,"There is no surgical patient I cannot treat competently,treat just as well as or better than any other surgen"---then, and not until then, you are indeed a surgeon. I was nearing that point.

3)    Take, for example, the emergency situations that we encountered almost every night. The first few months of the year I had dreaded the ringing of the telephone. I knew it meant another critical decision to be made. Often, after I had told Walt or Larry what to do in a particular situation, I'd have trouble getting back tosleep. I'd review all the facts of the case and ,not infrequently, wonder if I hadn't made a poor decision. More than once at two or three in the morning, after lying awake for an hour,I'd get out of bed,dress and drive to the hospital to see the patient myself. it was the only way I could find the peace of mind I needed to relax.

4)    Now, in the last month of my residency, sleeping was no longer a problem. There were still situations in which I couldn't be certain my decision had been the right one,but I had learned to accept this as a constant problem for a surgeon, one that could never be completely resolved---and I could live with it. So, once I had made a considered decision, I no longer dwelt on it. Reviewing it wasn't going to help and I knew that with my knowledge and experience, any decision I 'd made was bound to be a sound one. It was a nice feeling.

5)    In the operating room equally confident,. I knew I had the knowledge,the skill,the experience to handle any surgical situation I'd ever encounter in practice. There were no more butterflies in my stomach when I opened up an abdomen or a chest. Iknew that even if the case was one in which it was impossible to anticipate the problem in advance, I could handle whatever I found. I'd sweated through my share of stab wounds over of the belly,of punctured lungs, of compound fractures.I had sweated over them for five years. I didn't need to sweat any more.

6)    Nor was I afraid of making mistakes. I knew that when I was out in practice I would inevitably err at one time or another and operate on someone who didn't need surgery or sit on someone who did.Five years earlier---even one year earlier---I wouldn't have been able to live with myself if I had had to take sole responsibility for a mistake in judement,Now I could. I still dreaded eorrors---would do my best to avoid them---but I knew they were part of a surgeon's life. I could accept this fact with calmness because I knew that if I wasn't able to avoid a mistake,chances were that no other surgeon could have,either.

7)    This all sounds conceited and I guess it is --- but a surgeon needs conceit. He needs it to encourage him in trying moments when he's bothered by the doubts and uncertainties that are part of the practice of medicine. He has to feel that he's as good as and probably better than any other surgeon in the world. Call it conceit---call it self-confidence;whatever it was, I had it.
