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 😉

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! 😀

The End to a New Beginning

It’s been a long hiatus at this site.

2014 has already begun and I haven’t done any proper post to end my 2013! I have been procrastinating this post due to the laziness of editing photos to be posted up. So I decided that this will be a wordy post first before I procrastinate even more.

2013 was indeed an eventful year for me. Ever since I joined this amazing platform to fun, freedom and fulfillment, life have really changed quite drastically for me. I have moved out of my comfort zone to reach closer to being who I am. In the past, I have always been the very mellow, quiet self. Confidence level was at the bottom, always trying to meet other people’s expectation that I often forgot who I really am. I would always have this doubt in me that I can never seem to get rid of.

After going for training and met the people from the Little Blue Sign family, I had learnt more about myself. It built up my confidence level, I know how much I am worth now. I got so addicted to being surrounded by positive people and the environment. I find myself drifting further away from negativity and I am glad I did. These negatives are just like a goalkeeper in a soccer game. When you worked so hard trying to score a goal in your life, the goalies will try to stop you from reaching your goal no matter what. They will try all means and methods to stop you. Then you think about this, so what is their goal in life? They have no goal other than stopping you from reaching yours. So stay strong, keep moving forward and you’ll definitely able to score your goals.

Other than that, I had also the opportunity to move to a new department and learnt about human resource, which is what I wanted to try. I would say there’s much more I have to learn from and also because the government policy is always improvising, HR is definitely more that what I think it is. But so far so good! There’s always new things for me to learn everyday and I’m enjoying it.

2013 is also a year for me where people come and go. Well, I wouldn’t say I have regretted anything. It was not a decision made overnight and not a choice made in a moment of foolish. I would say I knew myself better and know what I want in my life.

Moving forward to 2014, I can already sense that it’s gonna be a great year! I am all charged up and ready to make a dent in the universe! Just came back from my first dreamtrip to Bali and looking forward to the upcoming one! I promise I’ll blog about Bali soon okay? 😀

Let me end this post with a quote to remind myself:

It's got to happen inside first.

A Hurdle in The Race

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

Public speaking,  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. 

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

Withlove,
