Nick: I’m turning 40 this year and what do I have to show for it?
Danielle: Actually, you’ve accomplished a lot. Do you know what your problem is? Your expectations are too high and your goals are unattainable for most people.
丹尼尔：其实，你已经取得不小的成就了 。你知道问题出在哪里吗？——你的期望太高了，你的目标是对大多数人来说都是无法企及的 。
Nick: Not for me. They shouldn’t have been. I had my life all planned out and nothing is turning out the way it should.
尼克：对我而言，并非如此 。它们并非不可企及 。我的整个生活都是计划好了的，但事情却并没有如我所预想的那样 。
Danielle: I would never have pegged you for someone with regrets about how his life has turned out.
Nick: But I was supposed to make my first million dollars by the time I was 30. By 35, I should have met someone and settled down, maybe had a child or two. None of that has panned out.
尼克：但我本来预测我在30岁的时候可以挣到第一个百万美元 。 在35岁的时候，我应该可以遇到心爱的人，然后成家立业，也许还会有一个或两个孩子 。 但我没有做到这些 。
Danielle: You have lots of friends and a full life. Maybe things didn’t turn out the way you had imagined, but wouldn’t you say you were generally content?
Nick: I was before I started thinking about my upcoming birthday.
Danielle: Then stop thinking about it. Too much brooding could definitely lead to regrets – not to mention premature aging!
