It's been a while since i blog. I just back from work after business discussion with my father and my partner Raymond at coffee shop. Only place where we allow to have dinner until we are successful. Meantime, i just finished up reading Kazuo Inamori - Passion for Success. The author is the founder of Kyocera Corporation, one of the Japan leading entrepreneur. If still unsure about the company, this company is the main sponsor for Reading Football Club in the Barclay's Premiership.
The content of the book is almost similar to any other books that talk about success. The fact remains is that every individual would like to see themselves succeed in their career or life. But yet not many of them really passionate to success. They believe to continue to do the same work again and again and hopefully receive the pay increament at the end of the year or continually hopping from one job to another to seek better paycheck disregard the word "passion".
As for myself, i had been in my career at the 7th year now. Time really moves extremely fast and never stop moving. I had achieve some results in my career back 3 years ago and it really make me "big person" in my company. It seem i'm one of the celebrity and that it what we call "comfort zone" where we totally stop seeking improvement in life and discontinue learning and start to behave which not suppose to be. The danger hole will arrive and waiting for me if i still continue to do what i'm doing.
The ego itself will kill people if we don't manage it properly and it's not easy to handle it in reality until it really hurts you badly. Till then only we start to realize that there was a hole in front and started to plan on how to patch the hole. In reality not many people manage to turn the corner and their life is gone is just a blink of eyes.
If we are so passionate to success, are we ready to admit our own mistake? Not easy at all. But this is the first rule towards the success journey. People besides you will start to admire you that you really admit yourself and now are very much determined to turn the corner to the journey to earn many millions of dollar. Some are touch by it and gives another chance for you to prove yourself and remember opportunity does not come often, once it arrive we got to work very very hard and i put it in my own words which some not disagree which is we got to punish ourselves to the limit when the opportunity arrive. It will not guarantee success but it will gives you a very good chance to achieve success if we prepare to work very very hard and never gives up.
I hardly slept every nite and i spend most of the time travelling to seek new business. It is very dangerous because accident can happen at every corner not within our control. Thus, 1000% efforts, focus and total dedication is needed to the road to success. ONE advantage i have is i have a personal coach and mentor who are equally so fired up to succeed. Listening to him everyday is like listening to Donald Trump everyday. I decided to stop attending motivational courses locally and internationally. I was heavily criticised on making that decisions back in Ipoh. I have decided and i don't bother about the comment anymore. The most important is know what you want and get the best out of it which is the results.
People started to treat and talk to you differently once you achieve some results you never achieve before in life. Yet they are the one who criticized you like nobody when we are in deep deep shit and started to pour tonnes of cold water and even recommend you to change jobs. But today they talk differently and put you up into the sky with the hope that you will share some business ideas with them. The world is so realistic and unfair, accept it and move on in lives. I never ever complaint on anybody, everything happen for a reason and it is only ourselves to blame for own creation. I can said i really accept the fact and admit the mistake, don't ever said sorry but to work damn hard everyday to prove to yourself you are far more better than what i'm currently in order to forgive yourself.
March will end soon and my team of people still continually seek opportunity which Donald Trump said keep creating luck. Luck will come when we are so persistent to seek opportunity in business. The total amount of business we created on the first quarter is equalvalent to 6 years total business. We got to moves on, it will mean nothing if we stop now. We will continually seek opportunity whenever we meet new prospects.
Be humble all the time, there is no whatsover reason to talk big and how good we are, i will continue my father footstep to live humbly forever in my life. Make ourselves rich and stay humble.
In order to pursue success, i realize we cannot only work everyday but we also must reward ourselves from time to time. Only then, we are constantly in full steam and enegectic all the time to do our business. For example, i goes shopping once a month in KL with my lovely wife and we allocate reasonable amount of money to be spend on that day including fine dining at restaurant within the shopping mall. I don't shop if people knows me well but the satisfaction came when i able to make my wife happy. Donald Trump mentioned don't buy quantity and special offer items usually sell at low prices. If we shop, look for quality. When we continue to read Donald's message, he is trying to convey that in business, this will inculcate into a habit in our lives where we seek quality in business and don't satisfy yourself too easily. Constantly demand on ourselves to perform and deliver better compare to yesterday. Habit can't be developed in one day, it tooks time and total dedication. It doesnt mean that if we start to shop quality, then you be sucessful, it is only one part to inculcate a good business habit.
On this saturday, me, father and Raymond will go NorthPort, Klang to collect my car. I would like to thanks to dad who really support his son in difficult time and now his son got BMW- bought from Raymond at very "buddy" price. Thanks Raymond. Definitely i will not boasting around but self satisfaction is awesome. I got another new toy in my life and many many more will be on the way if we focus towards our career.
Lastly, time to get to work, cherish and remember the past, what is far more important is NOW. Do we really want success in life? if YES, don't look left and right anymore, we need POSITIVE ACTION. GAMBATEH!!!
