CHAPTER 1 LIVE LIFE LIKE YOU WILL NEVER REGRET
People always think that the most painful thing in life is losing the one you value. The truth is the most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of valuing someone too much and forgetting that you are special too. Unknowingly, this sound, solid and valid principle has governed my life all this while.
How many of you have regretted that you have not done anything you think you ought to do? If you have, then I like to congratulate you for taking the effort to buy this book. Keep reading and apply whatever you feel comfortable and I can assure you that you will not regret it.
Despite my several temporary setbacks since I was born till date, I never gave in nor gave up. I managed to get through though it seems that there is no way out. You may at a later chapter learn how I rise from these temporary setbacks. I must attribute my achievements through help from those kind souls and people I came across. These temporary setbacks are merely to mold and shape me to the way I wanted. This is because I am a firm believer of I am the creator of my own destiny and everyone has a seed of greatness inside us.
Permit me to brief you a little about my background. I am a product of a migrant from Main Land China and a local lady in Malaysia. My late father had traveled across an ocean from China to marry my mother. Both are illiterate and we were given lots of freedom. Luckily, 5 out of my 7 siblings are university graduates, which made both our parents very proud.
I was born underweight but there is a good reason for it, which you may find out from this book. I began to start work at a very young age, but this did not deprive me from receiving an Education to break off from the poverty chain. Since then I strive to follow the foot- steps of those great successful people and wanted to leave my foot-prints in others’ hearts so as to repay what they had done for me even though they had never expected anything from me.
I have chosen to live my life like playing a winning chess game many decades ago. I always do my utmost best so that I can be a great contributor to the society which I had benefited from. I managed to maintain my attitude as I began to read lots of motivational book since young, My favorite authors, namely Confucius, Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln and Charles Dickens taught me to fight all odds to achieve success.
With this positive and profound attitude, it helps me to see things from the positive side of everything no matter what. This attribute made me able to dance in the rains while waiting for the rainbow. That’s easy as it sound. From there, I also learned that tough times never last, but tough people do. Gaining strength from strength to the next level of success is the surest way so long you keep doing it with inner desire. Now, hope you can see it as inside out process. First with the mindset, follow by knowing-doing gap strategy before using tangible tools to make it real. Keep reading if you do not know exactly what I mean and say.
Always remember: - if an egg is broken by an outside force, life ends.
If an egg is broken by inside force, then life begins. Great things happen from the inside.
One thing I also learn is to never despair nor give up. Keep encouraging yourself immensely no matters what so that it will eventually spark your desire to pursue your dream further. Grow your spirit rather then cut your dreams. Live the life you are capable and do not compromise it. This is because you only have a chance; you either do it Now or Never.
Determination, will power and staying focus on the goals will help you to overcome whatsoever challenge that comes along your life. Just believe it and do it. Have faith and never let your sight let you down. This proven success recipe has provided lots of fruits for me. Keep reading till you are convicted and convinced wholeheartedly.
These positive habits and attitudes will empower you to obtain what you desire in your heart. Keep listening to your inner voice and let it navigate you through the direction of your destiny. Keep practicing. Deliberate Practice does not make you Perfect but Deliberate Practice makes Permanent Progress.
Would you agree that your beliefs determine your actions?
Keep learning, unlearning what you have learned and relearn what is new to you. Get used to it and you will be rest assured to grow with it.
In 2008, I simply quit my overseas job shortly after I obtained my Permanent Residence. What at the time appeared as a bold and irresponsible decision, would soon open doors that would enable me to discover the "Missing Link" in my own life.
That freed me to enter into one of the most creative and bold periods of my life. Guess what? I WAS venturing into blogging on wealth and health at my late 40s with the intention to bring humanity to the next level of success, becoming a great successful man so that I can leave my foot print in many hearts and souls so as to glorify my Savior. At the time of writing, my blogs have spread its wing to more than 170 countries. Bear in mind, it has and is gaining momentum.
With this blessing, I then discovered my larger purpose of helping people to live life in more fulfilling roles and discovered my hidden potential. 3 Ebooks, namely Better Than The Best, Letting Go and Moving On & Growing Your Wealth Exponentially have been published so far so as to enhance its impact. Needless to say without your support, my purpose filled life would not have materialized.
From my turbulent life history, I learnt that we dictate our path. Nothing can stop us from achieving our goal so long as we don't give in and give up. We just need to be accountable, decisive, committed; audacious and stay focus as we stride along our life journey.
NOW, I like to sum up the following quotation in the end of the very first chapter of this book:-
May the sun bring you new energy by day,
May the moon softly restore you by night,
May the rain wash away your worries,
May the breeze blow strength into your being,
May you walk gently through the world
and know its beauty all the days of your life.
