Why Entrepreneurship Is Good For You

Why entrepreneurship is good for you – there are just so, so, so many good points about entrepreneurship that I sometimes don’t know where to start.

1) You can earn more – $500/month, $1000/month or more, if correct niche is selected and scaled right. What will this extra income mean to you? Also…what if it can earn more than your current salary?

2) Entrepreneurship is a growth-hacker – it will force you to focus and grow so fast personally and professionally in such an intense way, but gosh, those who love to grow and learn, it’s awesome

3) Entrepreneurial skills are valuable – you can choose to teach this skill to your kids, get hired to make money as a consultant or just keep working in your own businesses.

4) Profitable businesses are valuable – you can scale them further, you can take them public, you can sell them for multiples of annual profits, give them to your kids – whatever.

5) Create jobs and a community and work culture that you love

6) You can meet more like-minded people and even may meet the person of your dreams. You may meet interesting people from all walks of life. Or not if you don’t want to.

7) Deal with boredom..and maybe get happier?

8) Increase natural confidence, leadership, communication etc

Entrepreneurship is so addictive to me because it hits so many of my spots, and I will likely never get sick of it – consider it, you may like it too =)

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.

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 =)

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.

Some Day One Day Lie

The some-day-one-day-lie isn’t the same as truly being patient and working on our goals, one day a time.

It refers to a lie that we keep telling ourselves as we defer our hopes and dreams.

And the problem is…we all know someone like that, who says: – some day I’ll do that – one day I’ll do that But we know that they’re not moving a single inch in that direction at all, despite speaking about it for a long period of time – not even researching on it, producing content on it, nothing, yada.

Most of the time, in the end, nothing happens.

Don’t be like that – if you have a long term goal that you care about, start it today.

Maybe you have a full time job, its okay – start a blog and write about about it. Or a YouTube channel. Do it today, and add to it daily or weekly.

It will gain traction and momentum, and will accelerate your dream, sooner than you think

Intermittent Fasting Day #9

Good health is super important, and I cant stress that enough – as I grow older, I believe more and more that we need to take better and better care of our health.

And one of the best ways to me, is regular intermittent fasting.

Eating less itself decreases the amount of junk entry into our system; it does help that we dont need as much calories as we grow older, but we need to be more picky with what we eat.

Quality over quantity if I may say.
