Friends Matter

Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness. – Euripides


Friends matter.

As the kid failed to jump, over and over again, with frustration arising, all he needs is just a little bit more of support.

A support saying that he is still loved. That he still has the strength within him. That his friends are behind him. That there is still hope left.

In life, we will face our darkest moments.

Some lucky people will only experience it once or twice.

For the others, these dark moments come rather frequently.

As human, we are adaptable. We are flexible. Every single problems faced would make us stronger.

When you are facing a tough problem, remember this. You are NOT alone. You never be. You have friends with you.

Talk to them.
Spend the day quietly at each other’s side.
Hold their hands.

Things are easier to go through when you are not alone.

Problems shared are problems halved.

Remember your friends and be there for them, especially when they needed it the most.

Problem in life is a given. It happens in most unexpected time. Be resilient. Have supportive friends around you. Surround yourself with kind people.




Stop Hoping

Action is the foundational key to all success. – Pablo Picasso

We always think, we are busy now. Our dreams can wait later.

We need to work at a stable job to support our family. After the kids have grown up, then we can pursue our dreams.

This is a lousy job, maybe we work for another 5 years, then we change job.

We hope for the change of external conditions. But we all know that the changes are not controllable.

A better and wiser way is to take charge of our lives. Don’t wait. Life is short. Take up the responsibilities of directing your lives.

We all have but one life. Make it count.

Don’t wait for situations to change. Change it today!

What is your dream? What is the one action you can do right now, moving you forward to your dreams?


Book of Hope

My life has been a blessing. I’m grateful for everything I do have and the places I’m going and the things I’ve seen. – Leah LaBelle

A personal mentor of mine, Cayden Chang, has just launched his latest book.

The Book of Hope is a candid autobiography of his life. There were many accounts of his childhood and school life, things that I didn’t know of.

A remarkable story of how hardship drives him to become a successful person today.

A true story of how he fought back in his own cancer episodes, not once, but twice.

A book of hope and inspiration. Not giving up hope when disaster strikes. When one is hopeful, all is not lost yet.

If you are interested in reading his life story, get a copy now. From what I know, it is currently selling at Kinokuniya @ Takashimaya. That is where I bought my copy. All sales proceeds of the book would go to National Cancer Center for research.

Also, he would be having a book launch on 14 January 2006 at Chen Fu Ji Restaurant, with the aim of raising $10,000 for Singapore Cord Blood Bank. If you are interested of attending the book launch, you can reserve a seat via http://bit.ly/1NtRLGf . It would be a $200 per seat.

Reading his life story is inspirational. Reminding me that obstacles at my workplace is something that I can conquer. Whatever obstacle that I have at work is incomparable to his. His is a matter of life and death, while mine is just work. If he can overcome his, why couldn’t I?

It’s all about being hopeful and resilient when things look bleak. How do you remain optimistic?
