Get Up And Do Something Meaningful

Life is short…but long enough when it’s well lived and not wasted on petty and mundane stuff.

Get up and do something meaningful, don’t waste your time and life tolerating and just going through the motion.

The thing with “doing” something meaningful is that you need to evaluate and think for yourself, and determine what is meaningful or not to you – and everyone is different.

That’s why I often tell people that you can look left and right to see what others are doing, but most importantly is that you need to immerse, try, evaluate and determine what makes you tick.

Because you are you, and what makes you happy will be different from what makes others happy.

Of course, don’t hurt, harm, lie or manipulate others as you do so.

Work Is Your Best Friend

Let me expand that: Consistent hard work is your best friend.

It can take you as high as you want, or as far as you want, but everything requires work and maintenance efforts/work to succeed and stay successful.

Success is a journey and we keep growing and going higher and higher, be it in our businesses, money, relationships, health – everything needs work.

So for us to succeed, we need to do the work.

Consistently.

Doing The Right Thing…Is Always The Right Thing

Doing the right thing…is always the right and good thing to do.

It’s practical, straightforward, it’s good and sustainable.

I’ve never understood why people cheat, lie, scam or do wrong stuff – it’s so much easier and better to just do good and the right thing. Not rocket science.

It’s just so much easier and direct to just tell the truth and be honest.

Soft Human Skills Matter

Soft human skills matter a lot.

In fact, I’d say that it’d be worth more than hard, technical skills.

You see, EVERYONE can pickup a hard skill or a technical skill today. But boy, it’s not that easy to pickup soft skills or human skills – that virtue itself will prove how valuable soft skills are.

I’m not referring to negative soft skills such as manipulation, coercion and similar, which is evil and corrupted of course – I’m referring to good soft skills such as empathy, patience, kindness, generosity – those kind of stuff that’s important for yourself, your family, your business, your society and the world.

Those are the kind of skills that are broad life skills, that can be translated into most social, professional, entrepreneurial and relationship situations – and that speaks a lot for its influence and ability.

Are You Prepared To Chase Your Dreams?

Are you prepared to chase your dreams?

To sacrifice and pay the price?

The blood, the sweat, the tears, the toil?

If yes, and you’re not a dreamer, then stop wasting money on dumb shit – keep your costs low so you can focus on building and moving in the direction of your dream, today.

There IS a price to pay to build things and lives that are meaningful. If not…if it’s so easy, then everyone will do it. But because things and dreams are hard, THAT’S why it’s worth it. The fruits of the labor will be sweeter with toil too =)

Abundance And More Than Enough

There is abundance everywhere.

Abundance means to have more than enough money, time, love, generosity and more – of course there’s work involved, you cant have abundance without work…and once you truly get it, you’d realize the reason why abundance is everywhere is because it is about value creation that leads to wealth generation.

And it can happen wherever there is a need or demand – that’s it generally. Of course there’s more nuances, including doing the work, but that’s it from a very broad perspective.

Dont be fooled by people and companies who’s trying to instill fear in your so that you can work for them and do their bidding.

2X Immigration Leads To Practicality And Success

Immigration isn’t a new concept to me, and you know what, I am immensely grateful for the multiple immigration moves that we did in our lives.

Location wise, I had two large immigration movement from Seremban (Negeri Sembilan) to Johor (Uncle place for a few weeks) and then once more to Taman Tasik where we rented our own space and then to Permas Jaya when my dad could afford his own space. This itself is four movements.

Later I migrated to Singapore when I was 20, and from there, make large but calculated moves from employee to agency to single clinic to multi-clinic chan, and in the process get played out by unscrupulous landlords and business owners who just played the short game (that’s why many of them fail to grow big or fail to go public/IPO or others – it’s because they cut corners).

These immigration and other big moves are quite helpful to form my ability to survive and thrive amidst change, to look forward and anticipate good and important changes, and also, to move away from projects and people that are time-wasters and just out to cheat/play in the short term.

Stop Chasing Money

Stop chasing money.

Period.

Too many people prioritize money over health, relationships, people and even themselves.

And yes, money is important, but it is NOT more important than health, relationships and people. People who think that way are sad and one-dimensional. It doesn’t work that way, the world is interesting such that once you choose to do what is good and right, money will chase you.

And as long as you chase money, it will be elusive.

Don’t be deceived, God isn’t mocked or deceivable – He can see all things and at the end of days, we will have to account for all we do, right and wrong.

So repent and do things the right way, and chase after God – everything else, including money, will chase after you after.

 

On Hope

Faith, Hope and Love and the three pillars of internal strength and from it pours out many of the other aspects of mastery including courage, trust, etc

In this video, I cover about holding fast to hope even though we may experience setbacks, setups, pains, suffering, and even after all those, to hold onto hope.

My hope is in Jesus Christ, and I happily share His name to the world because He is a solid rock which can hold and anchor me safely.

Do not give up – there is always hope.

Be Damn Good or Be Mediocre

There two (2) ways to live life generally:

  1. Be damn good at what you do
  2. Be mediocre and tear everyone/everything else down so you look good

Of course, the best approach is to be damn good at what you do, but it’s hard work – you have to keep leveling up, keep pressing on forward and doing the right and good things and you may be victim to sociopaths who will happily play you and throw you under the bus for their profit or merriment.

Yet, still choose love and choose good success.

At the end of our lives, we will have to account – would you want to account for a good life or a bad life?

To me, it’s quite straightforward – do the right and good things, and everything will fall into place, despite challenges, pains and setbacks.
