What’s your joy?

Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me. – Carol Burnett

Just back from a simple gathering with a university friend. We’ve known each other for almost 13 years, from the very first day when we stepped into NTU.

Time passed by rather very quickly.

We’ve been in Singapore for almost 13 years.
We’ve been working for almost 9 years.

My friend said: “I was in the shower after gym one day. As the water ran down, I was thinking, ‘What has happened to my life all these years? What did I achieve? What do I have joy in doing?’

We took things for granted. When life is comfortable, we started cruising in our lives. We stopped learning. And we stopped taking risk. We stopped breaking through our comfort zone.

We aimed for easy, instead of growth. We aimed for comfort, instead of potential. We aimed for security, instead of abundance.

When we start to live our lives on auto-pilot, it is time that we stop living. It is time when we started drifting backwards. It is time where nothing is memorable anymore.

What’s the biggest regret of people? It is not the television drama that they missed out. Or the latest smartphone that they didn’t buy.

It was on the opportunity that they didn’t take. It was on the experience they didn’t dare to chase. It was on the love they are afraid to fall on.

Life is short, regardless of how you want to think otherwise. It is this mortality that stops us on the track, and to think, “What is really important for me?

What is important for you?

Myths of Wealth

Change your life today. Don’t gamble on the future, act now, without delay. – Simone de Beauvoir

Reading the foreword by Dan Miller for Jaime Tardy’s The Eventual Millionaire. There is some misconception on wealth.

Myth 1:  We chase after money directly.
Money is a byproduct. Money is the result of values that we put in for other people. People pay us for a work well done.

Myth 2: Envy other rich people.
Successful rich people do not envy other rich people. They learn from them, and still remain humble. They learn from others, and at the same time, teach others as well.

Myth 3: Be greedy and stingy.
Wealthy people are not stingy. They freely share, for they believe that there is enough wealth for everyone. They believe in abundance.

Myth 4: Wealthy people are selfish.
We do not live for ourselves alone. We live by contributing and helping one another. The richer we are, the more we are in a position to help others.

Myth 5: Rich is a game of luck.
We don’t get rich by being lucky. We get rich by putting in the effort, chasing after the opportunities, being relentless in pursuing our dreams.

Differentiate facts from myth and you will be well on your way to wealth.  Don’t be ignorant. Don’t be stubborn. Live your life well – in happiness and full of abundance.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking. – Marcus Aurelius

Happy Chinese New Year!

May the year treat you well.

May you be surrounded in love.

Let bygones be bygones.

Learn from the past, both good and bad.

Chart a new journey.

Have a new aim in life.

Positivity Projection

Your smile will give you a positive countenance that will make people feel comfortable around you. – Les Brown

 

Happy TGIF!

That’s practically what is going on in each other’s mind. End of work, it’s time to play!

We would want to be happy. We, ourselves.

But have we ever stopped and think if other people are happy as well?

When we think of other people, not as strangers, but as friends, there would be less of a conflict.

We see each other as the same. Just like one big happy family.

To wish others joy and abundance. It doesn’t take anything away from us.

There’s plenty of joy and abundance. Aplenty.

Let’s try this simple exercise. For the next two days, let’s send well wishes to anyone you encounter. For everyone whom you see on the street. Wish them joy and laughter. Health and wealth. Love and success.

See if it doesn’t change your life.

Merry Christmas

Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more. – H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Merry Christmas!!

What does Christmas mean to you? A time to collect presents? To exchange presents? A time of holiday?

It’s a season of giving. And giving comes from a state of abundance.

Cultivate a sense of abundance within you  – regardless of what material possession you have at this very moment.

Be grateful of what you have now, be grateful of what you have now that you really want, regardless how much of it you have at this very moment.

For it is stated in the law of attraction, that you will have more of what you are grateful for.

Think of the needy and the less fortunate folks out there. What would you do? How would you help, not only during this festive season, but throughout the year as well?

Think and reflect. Let’s make this Christmas a time to cherish – where we put others in front of us. Let’s serve and make this world a better place!

Merry Christmas!
