Hi! my dearest friends,
Today, I write to share this inspiring book, "You Can Fly", written by Mohmed Ismail, which I had promised you much earlier. A REAL ENTREPRENEUR and the CEO of PropNex, Singapore's largest real estate company with over 3,800 Associates. Great thanks to Ismail and all those involved in bringing this book a reality.
Through his easy to read book, he used analogies and anecdotes of his personal experiences, he put across his views and concepts about entrepreneurship. Plenty of useful practice-able tips and would be definitely an excellent guide book for would-be entrepreneurs.
I must highlight the noble intention of the author of using his book to inspire us to be better than what we are. I find his book, which record of his personal, inspirational and REAL experiences very inspiring, and really boost my confidence, raise my sights and lift me higher UP!
THAT MAKES ME TO WRITE THIS ARTICLE.
This book reaffirmed that Success begins from the mind as your mindset reflects who you are. This is the main pillar of Success and no one can change your mindset unless you choose to do so voluntarily.
He made a very clear distinction between the two extremes of mindsets; of Scarcity and Abundance.
The former is the one who sees opportunity comes only once and when it is blown away, it's gone forever. They have firm belief that there just isn't enough to go around. As a result, they more often than not view competition as hostile. Their equation is that to have more for themselves, then someone else must have less. These groups build walls rather than bridges.
However, the latter is the one who sees opportunities are abundant, like ideas, money and resources. People with such mindsets are open to all possibilities, even if they have to create one and always raise the question of "ask why not" instead of "cannot". They create new sources of income to satisfy their desire instead of rejecting them.
In this blog, you have read many times that you are always in control of yourself, so is your mindset. In fact, you can shift your mindset of Scarcity to Abundance type. There is no secret about it and you need to believe it, if Success is your choice. To embrace this mindset, you need to be optimistic, see beyond self interest; ready to explore all possibilities; grow your resources; believe in team work and co-operation that spurs growth and success.
My purpose of sharing with you is to inspire You and get inspired by you towards building a strong network with the belief and Work towards creating Success for all of us, in line with the belief of Abundance.
One thing I must confess here is that through writing such inspiring articles so as to inspire you in the first place, benefits me a lot as it reaffirms and reinforce my belief. As such, I do hope you too share with others so that you too will receive the same benefits as I do. Better still, if you could step forward to edify and vouch for such statement. Ultimately, we all will able to see that Giving is Receiving. The more you give, the more you received.
Now, I am going to throw the ball to your court so that you could share some of your views or experience, which will sharpen our thoughts better so that we all can see beyond ourselves. Big thanks, all my friends.
Look forward to seeing and hearing you again,
