What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

I’m halfway through my second book, Cashflow Quadrant, from Robert Kiyosaki after Rich Dad Poor Dad. It was truly reality-slapping on the face. He told us the cold hard truth of society and the inner thought in everyone’s mind which they tried so hard to suppress.

While reading the book, I always have the habit to reflect back on what he said to what I did. And this thought came into my mind. Years back when I was still in my school days, my used-to-be close friend of mine and I would have this little talk about our future, what we want to do after stepping to society and adulthood. She is intelligent, smart and I’d always envious her intelligence. She had a clear vision of being a teacher and planned to set up a home tuition centre where she could be a stay-home mum and also earning a living at the same time.

On the other hand, I didn’t know what I want. I don’t have good grades to begin with. I want to help more people but i don’t know how. Although I had a dream of living a fulfilling life, I didn’t know how to and what I want to do. What seems possible to do is to find a job, not sure how long it takes but work my way up the corporate ladder, get married and continue working. It was the ‘safe path’ so to speak. But deep down I know this is not the life I wanted to live. This is not the lifestyle I wanted. I wanted freedom.

I wouldn’t want to own a business and drown myself into working for the business for life. I want to be able spend more time with my children and not spend more time working for a living for my family. I want to have income even though I’m not physically doing the business so that I can do more voluntary work to help more people. I want to able to build a business around something where I truly have passion in, for then I will manage it wholeheartedly. I want a sustainable business for my future generations.

What the two books taught me was that all that I want is possible. All that I mentioned above can be a reality. I do not need to have a good grades to do that. We can be anything we want. Besides teaching us about money, rich dad emphasises personal development and see life in a different perspectives.

There are so much I’ve learnt through these books and I couldn’t tell you the same way he did. I strongly recommend everyone and anyone to read it. Disclaimer: I did not get paid to advertise ๐Ÿ˜‰

Aside to that, after reading Rich Dad Poor Dad and halfway through Cash flow Quardrant, I am glad that I’ve made the decision to jump into this amazing platform. This platform fulfil almost all the points that Robert Kiyosaki taught about. I am thankful for such perfect opportunity. This vehicle contains my passion and my dreams. How awesome can it be! :D! No matter how hard it takes, I’m getting there.

Oh! This reminds me that I need to start blogging about all my wonderful events so far with my blue sign family!

Stay tune till then! ๐Ÿ˜€

A Hurdle in The Race

Yet again, I disappoint myself. Being unprepared and lack of confidence.

Public speaking,ย  or maybe being the centre of attraction hasn’t always my kinda thing. I would be more comfortable in my tiny little corner. In poly days, we had to give presentation for the first time. It turned out as my worst nightmare. Being happy-go-lucky during my younger days, I was not well prepared at all and I have no idea what I was doing. It’s like being drunk and waking up, not knowing what is going on (although I didnt experience that before). It was a messy. My voice shivers, my brain was empty, I didnt know how to form a sentence, caught in my own thoughts and had the longest 3 seconds of silence ever.

Yet again, due to super last minute of my group, we prepared last than one week, where other groups had started preparing long ago. We didnt had enough group members because we didnt told the lecturer and everyone formed their own teams already. And nobody was a leader in our group. So we were caught up by procrastination till the last minute. My ideas got all shot down by a particular group member who didnt contribute any ideas. End up doing a topic where most of us are not passionate and doesnt have any clue about. We didnt practice at all and I had only thought of what I wanna say in my mind. And ta-da. besides not meeting the requirement of the objective of the presentation, I stumbled, my voice shivered, mind went blank. All the points I wanna say I didnt.

Well, expected isnt it? From the first word I typed into the presentation slides I knew this wasnt what I wanna do. But I still went ahead with it. Always trying to be a team player and not stepping up as a leader. So what if my groupmate hates me for being hard on them? I should fight for the right for a good grade for myself. What was holding me back then? It is always fear. Fear of losing a friend, fear of being disliked. Fear of showing my true self. Fear of too many things that I’ve got distracted from going for what is right for me.

Sigh. But ohwell. What done cannot be undone. So I am going to set a new goal for myself. To overcome the fear, improve on my skills and dont afraid of being who I am.ย 

(Oh wow, can I submit this as part of my reflection journal that I need to submit in a week’s time? Hahahaha. )

Withlove,

Rooted Deep Within

There may be many negatives comments or perception from people you’ve known or not known. People always judge before knowing what’s the whole situation. They judge based on what people told them, or they heard about but did not experience before.

Some will, some won’t. So what?!

If they judged you based on their perception, then what do you need them for in your life? What I need is people who are like a palm trees and will not fall or sway by the wind or tsunami.ย 

I have never in my life believe that I will be so passionate and positive about doing something. I used to be one of those that said “these people are crazy, they must have been brainwashed” (Yeah I know many of you are doing right now). When you have experienced how much positive people and energy you can feel in the moment, you’ll change your mind.ย 

Never in my life am I so clear that what I want to achieve.ย I know what I want, I know WHY I want it, and my WHY is definitely bigger than your NO.

I am so glad that I went for this boot camp. Johnny Wimbrey is one of the best speakers and he’s now my inspiration and motivation. Not only because I’m all over him, but his words are so powerful and left a great impact on me.

Remember, believe in yourself.

And never quits.

Emo Day

While on this bus ride to school, I’m feeling a little down.

My brain decided to have a power trip on me. I felt lost and aimless all of a sudden. I don’t know what to do with my life. Looking through my social media, seems like everyone else got a aim in their life, while I’m lost in a jungle.

Am I really up for this? Can I really do this? Do I have the skill to this? What’s my talent? Do I even have one?

I often asked myself, “is it better to be an all-rounder and master at none or being an expert in something?” No matter how hard I want to learn something, I just couldn’t fully understand it and master it. At young, I had learnt ballet and gymnastic, but I gave up halfway. I was given opportunities to participate in the gymnast competition too. Joined the track and field after that and gotten quite a few medals. But didn’t continue it in secondary school. I’ve taken up guitar classes during primary school and stop learning after I graduated (although I played a few times with my peeps in secondary school). Then I joined chinese orchestra and played in the percussion. Also left halfway due to my laziness to go for classes during the holidays (they had classes almost every other day!). Played basketball as hobbies and stopped playing due to some relationship problem over there. Signed up for some dance classes during my poly life. Discontinued midway cos of money constraint and no motivation.

Sigh. I can go on and on. On a optimistic side, hey, I can do a lot of things! But then again, which is more important, all-rounder or expert.

Just posting a question to myself. I don’t know how to change this part of me. I really don’t. Someone enlighten me, pretty please?

Moving On

Image

ย 

Everyday, every minute, every second we are always moving forward. As cliche as it sounds, time waits for no man.ย 

In a few weeks time, I will be stepping up to a new environment(somewhat), new position with new responsibilities. Although it’s what I’ve been wanting to do, I still felt some what a difficult choice. I am so used to my environment now, with all my lovely colleagues around me, all the laughter we have, jokes we made when no one else’s is in the room. We would still be in the same company, but I’ll probably need to spend lesser time with them. I’ll probably need to sacrifice some of the laughter. I’ll probably feel the distance after not getting so involved with them.ย 

Well, I guess everyone has to always move on. Nobody should move backwards or stop moving. When this happen, things changes and you’ll need to adapt and change as well. But I believe there is always more than a way to do things. Doesn’t mean the previous person has this way of doing things and I will have to follow blindly. I can create my own ways of doing, right? Hah. I know I will create a different style of working, keeping close with my colleagues now and also manages my work well.ย 

(I just needed a reminder to myself ๐Ÿ˜€ )

Afterall, it’s just a matter of your own decision.ย

Stepping Out of Comfort Zone

image

In less than 4 days time, I will be on my flight to Cambodia.

It’s the first time I’m going to travel with a group of strangers, without any friends, and having responsibilities instead of going for fun. It is a mixed feeling that I doubt nobody around me will understand. I’m quite excited yet have a fear of uncertainty. No matter, this is really a great opportunity to challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone.

If I open up myself, it would be a great trip. If I didn’t… it still can be fun but not as satisfying as it will be.

Okay, need more encouragement to myself. I can do this. I will do this. For the rest of you, just wish me luck!

Withlove,
