72. Failure Is an Option, but Fear Is Not

72. 失败是人生的选项之一,但畏惧不是

So, when I came back to make my next movie, which was "Avatar," I tried to apply that same principle of leadership which is that you respect your team, and you earn their respect in return. And it really changed the dynamic, So, here I was again with a small team, in uncharted territory doing "Avatar," coming up with new technology that didn't exist before. Tremendously exciting. Tremendously challenging. And we became a family, over a four and half year period. And it completely changed how I do movies.

当我开始拍摄《阿凡达》时,我试着将这种互相尊重的领导力原则应用在电影拍摄中。很快,情况就真的有所改变了。在《阿凡达》拍摄过程中,我的团队也很小,也在未知领地工作,创造新的科技。这非常有意思,非常有挑战性。四年半的时间,我们成为了一个家庭。这完全改变了我拍电影的方式。

So, people have commented on how, well, you know, you brought back the ocean organisms and put them on the planet of Pandora. To me it was more of a fundamental way of doing business, the process itself, that changed as a result of that.

有许论文章说,卡梅隆把海底的-些生物放到了潘多拉星球上。对于我来说,这只是做事情的基本方式,这个过程本身改变了事情的结果。

So, what can we synthesize out of all this? You know, what are the lessons learned? Well, I think number one is curiosity. It's the most powerful thing you own. Imagination is a force that can actually manifest a reality. And the respect of your team is more important than all the laurels in the world. I have young film makers come up to me and say, "Give me some advice for doing this." And I say, "Don't put limitations on yourself. Other people will do that for you. Don't do it to yourself. Don't bet against yourself. And take risks."

最后,总结一下。我学到了什么?第一:好奇心,这是你拥有的最有力量的东西;第二:想象力,这是你创造现实的椎动力;第三:对团队的尊重,这是比世界上其他所有荣誉更重要的东西。有年轻的导演过来跟我说:“给我一些拍电影的建议吧”。我回答说:“不要局限你自己。别人会来局限你,但你不要自己局限自己。不要赌自己会输。要敢于冒险。”

NASA has this phrase that they like: "Failure is not an option." But failure has to be an option in art and in exploration, because it's a leap of faith. And no important endeavor that required innovation was done without risk. You have to be willing to take those risks. So, that's the thought I would leave you with, is that in whatever you're doing, failure is an option, but fear is not. 

美国国家航空航天局有一句他们很喜欢的名言:“失败并不是一种选择”。但是失败在艺术上、探险上肯定是一项选择,因为这是信仰的飞跃。任何需要革新的重要努力都需要冒险。你必须愿意承担这些风险。所以,这是我想给你的想法,不管你做什么,失败是一个选项,但是畏惧不是。
