Ladies and gentlemen,
Have you ever wondered why there is a relatively low success rate from the approaches of self improvement of any kind ? Not many of you do.
Here, I write to share my findings with you and I hope you will then have a better picture and appropriate perspective.
From my observation in numerous training workshops, I have discovered that there is a GREAT tendency to presume that these workshops are mainly for fixing defective areas when approaching self improvement of any kind. It has become rather obvious that there are areas in our lives that need to be changed. Sadly to say that the mindset with which the most transformation approach often NEGATE any positive results they might have.
You may wonder why? This is basically because of focusing on the PROBLEM they are trying to solve, rather than on their vision. In the end, they tend to attract more problems in line with the saying " if you focus on the problem, you get more problems."
This is how the Law of Attraction works at all times, even if we are not aware of it. So, the Law of Attraction transcends that we will receive exactly, proportionally and equally to our response, ...our FEELINGS so to speak. Where is our attention and focus directed to ? The question here is whether there is any negative feeling associated with the problem or the feelings of no longer having the problem?
However, if you approach self improvement with the desire to "get rid of the problem" with all the negative feelings of frustration and anger this "problem" brings, then you will naturally attract more of those negative feelings...more of the circumstances that brought the problem to you in the first place according to the Universal Law. The Universe is simply responding directly to the "implied request" on the way of your feelings, even if you are unaware of your situation.
Should we approach our self improvement solutions with high positive feelings; associated with what our life WILL be...coupled with the visualisation of our success; followed by our program of choice on all sensory levels; particularly the level of our EMOTION, we will literally magnetically ATTRACT the success we are looking for! This alignment and harmonisation of our minds and spirits with the universe will produce miracles.
Naturally, the wealthiest and most successful people in the world using the Law of Attraction, knowingly or unknowingly, to effortlessly bring into their lives, their vision in the form of wealth, relationships, wisdom, peace of mind, and a sense of life purpose.
The truth is that everyone CAN have whatever he wants, regardless of how this may sound. What he needs to do is simply learn HOW to ask for what he truly wants and follow with positive and healthy response.
Despite what most of us may currently believe in or had been taught, it is never the intent of our lives to struggle with long hard work, or even to "figure things out". What we need to do is do what we truly love to do. Once we do that with full trust and become consciously aware, we will naturally attract our deepest desires working toward our ends. Hence, we become powerful magnets, which virtually assures our success.
Wishing you great success,

TME AT CIMA, 19-Dec 2012.
Very good evening Fellow TM, Guests, L&G.
How are you feeling today? Awesome !
It is my pleasure to be your TME today, and my name is James Oh from AFC TM club.
On behalf CIMA TM club, I would like extend a warm welcome to all the new members, old members and thank all the guests taking your precious time to attend this evening meeting.
My role is to cheer all of you up tonight and add zest to (stimulate) this evening’s meeting, I'm going to give you a simple task. When I say something and if you don't feel you agree with me, then you say I totally agree.
If I say something you don’t like then you say, yes I like it.... Can you guys do that?? I am just joking.. when I say how do you feel now " I feel good ohh yes..."
Let me give all of you a brief introduction of what is toastmasters international.
Toastmaster was formed in 1924 by a well respected missionary gentleman called DR.RALPH C. SMEDLEY, the founder of TI. From a humble beginning , he started the first Toastmaster meeting at the YMCA in Santa Ana, California United States.
Toastmasters International has grown to become a world leader in helping people become more competent and comfortable in front of an audience. The non-profit organization now has nearly 280,000 members in over 13,500 clubs in 116 countries, offering a proven, pleasant – and enjoyable! – way to practise communication and leadership skills.
You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
Toastmasters is the best place to learn, to build your confidence. So don't worry if you never speak on stage before. Laugh at yourself first before anyone can. This is the platform to start your journey to become a good speaker.
How do you feel now?.
INTRODUCE PROG FLOW
I believe tonight is going to be a great night and you will enjoy all the various exciting and enriching sessions specially designed for you.
1st , the normal stimulating TT session in which we can learn how to listen, think and speak in an impromptu manner, will be replaced with the “12 Days of Christmas “ in view of forthcoming Christmas Day.
Then we have the prepared speech session where the speakers will deliver their speeches prepared in advance.
After that, we will be enlightened by a group of accomplished TMs who will evaluate all speakers, role players and the entire meeting, and give their invaluable constructive feedback for improvement.
Also, our meeting will not be able to proceed effectively/efficiently without the following other role players whom I will be most delighted to introduce now.
First in my list is the Grammarian. Please welcome Advance Competent Bronze CL Steven Yong to explain his role as a Grammarian and to introduce the Word Of Day.
Next, we have Ah-Counter. Please welcome TM Lim Chong Soon to explain his role as an Ah-Counter.
Next important role player is the Time Keeper. Please welcome CC, CL Jerusha (did I pronounce your name correctly?) to explain his role as the Time Keeper.
Last but not least to the most important role player of tonight non other than our GE Alexandra Lau CC.
May I pass the control to Andy Ching, Advance C Bronze, CL? Let us put our hands to welcome Andy Ching, ACB. CL
Now, we’ll move on to the 2nd peak of the meeting, which is our prepared/project speech session.
Speaker No. 1: Tm Ryder title “When Stroke Happens”
To kick-start this session, we have the 1st speaker Tm Ryder, he will be delivering a speech based on Project 5 from the Competent Communicator Manual Your Body Speaks
Since we have 2 speakers for project 5, I will now invite his evaluator, Desmond to read out the project objectives and timing devices to both the first and third speakers.
Evaluator Desmond Foo CC
TQ ( 2 change accordingly) that’s indeed informative, educational and useful information that will help us prevent stroke. Prevention is better than cure.
a brain-blowing, mind-boggling, thought-provoking, heart-searching and heart-warming life story.
Speaker No. 2: TM Vicky cc title : Dolphins
He will be delivering a speech based on Project 8 from the Competent Communicator Manual Get comfortable With Visual Aids
Evaluator Cheah Ai Ling ACB ALB
Speaker no. 3 Jerusha CC CL cc title True Greatness
Evaluator Richard Yeow ACB ALB
Speaker no. 4 Leong Soo Qi CC cc title The First Encounter
Evaluator Andy Ching, ACB , CL
Speaker no. 5 Cheah Ai Ling ACB ALB cc title THE Moment of Truth
TQ, we will now go for a short happy break. Please Make sure that you come back here punctually at 8.55pm ……. Otherwise our SAA Leong Soo Qi may blow you up into pieces. Just joking. See you in then !
After break evaluation session
Welcome back and now I can see many faces, recharged and rejuvenated after all the necessary “releases” and the vital oxygen supply for people like Daniel Let’s resume the meeting. (Energizing, vitalizing, revivifying, rejuvenating, refreshing, invigorating).
We are now on the last Session which is the climax of our meeting that is Evaluation or Feedback session. We human beings have this flaw - we see what we want to see and we don’t see what we are not aware of. In scientific terms, we sometimes are too close to the forest to see the trees. So we need external candid, constructive and objective evaluation from others to tell us what’s our flaws, mistakes, shortcomings or weakness etc and how to overcome them. This is exactly what our panel of accomplished and supportive Evaluators will do for us and give their invaluable constructive feedback for us to improve.
And to spearhead the evaluation tonight, I would like to call upon our General Evaluator, (CC?) Alexandra Lau to take over.
L&G, let us welcome her.
Thanks GE and all the evaluators for the rewarding, incisive/insightful/ perceptive and enlightening evaluation..
L&G, aren’t you energized, enlightened, entertained and enriched? I find it so inspiring until I am now perspiring. Did all of us have a great time?
Yes, the grand moment of glory has arrived – who are the best Project Speaker and Evaluator ? The answer is in my hand. Can we have Acting President Desmond Foo to come to the stage to present the awards to the winners:
L&G, the best TT Speaker is ___________________
The best Project Speaker is ___________________
The best Speech Evaluator is _________________
I have come to the end of my role. It has been an enriching and rewarding meeting for me and the passionate participation, contribution & cooperation from all of you, the members, guests, role players have not only made my job much easier but also made the meeting more colorful, meaningful and successful. My heartfelt thanks to all of you.
My special thanks also go to a few persons - my comrade, fellow member of FTMC Zaiton who is also our VPE; my mentor and sifu Daniel Teh who has already left.
Thank you once again. Now, I would like to hand over control to Acting President to do the closing for the meeting.
I still have another 6 pages to speak on. But I know that we are running a bit late now – so I promise to stop if you start to applaud. TQ and good night.
End is not the end
My late father had travelled across an ocean from China to marry my mother in Malaysia. She is a local lady.
As such, I am a product of a migrant from Main Land China and a local lady. Both are illiterate. Luckily, 4 out of my 6 siblings are university graduates, that made both our parents very proud.
Despite our early and tough struggle, we were given lots of freedom. Our parents never check our school homework but somehow we realised, recognised and valued the importance of an education.
My mother's famous quote is "born in beggar's faith, but possess emperor's heart", when I tried very hard to pursue further studies especially when I quit my job with late Professor, Yap Han Heng to do my Form 6 on self sustaining basis.
How will you feel when someone has been using the method you taught her many years ago ? The one person who has benefited for so many years from my advice, out of one unpleasant incident is my mother. Applause.
Look at the photo above, the date torn from a calendar that was glued to the gas cylinder may not trigger anything for you. However it reminded me of this sweet memorable event that as a young boy , who ran out of patience, told my mother this idea.
It happened when I heard her voice vividly asking me repeatedly to buy one item after another from the sundry shop, a walking distance from our low cost flat, while she was preparing our meals.
At that time, I was in my last few hours preparing for my examination. I was summoned by her when she discovered that she ran out of cooking oil. She has to shout repeatedly because I concentrated on my study despite our flat is as big as pigeon hole.
I had no other choice, but to set aside everything I was doing. I rushed to get the cooking oil back. However, upon return and just about ready to begin my revision.
She called me again and without much hesitation I immediate answered her. She told me to get onions for her as she just discovered that she ran out of stock.
I had to put everything aside and rush to the shop again to buy for her.
After my second return but before I warm up my seat, I was called again, this time she wanted me to get her another item. I was a bit annoyed, and told her to list down all items she need in a list, without any diplomatic tone. She replied with a strong reason that she couldn't do so because she is illiterate.
Instantly, I brush aside her reason and counter attack her to either draw it down or paste the picture on a piece of paper so as to remind her.
After many years I left my house to pursue my higher studies in Selangor, I still see her practicing till today and the impact I left on my love ones.
What really made me happy was to see someone I love benefiting from my creative way of doing thing to improve her lifestyle despite she had always given excuses of being too old to learn.
