Be Yourself As Every Winner Will

No "IFs", no "BUTs"...

How meaning can be imputed into words and the real meaning simply evaporates...? Omigosh
Truth can be slanted
Half-truths, if repeated long enough, becomes truth ~ the power of 'make-belief' ~ the spin wizards
The world is a stage and we are actors 人生就是一场戏 

A "NO" answer does not require any reasons

I had my fair share of 'MAYBEs' and it cost me time, money and inconveniences
Why didn't I simply say 'No'?
Perhaps, I feel sorry to turn someone down or I'm afraid to be seen as 'not trying...'
In the end, it costs me more

I wish and I'm beginning to learn to say 'No' affirmatively
It has saved me time, efforts and embarassments
There are people who prosper 'by association' and make use of my 'maybe' to gain stature


It's difficult to say 'No' but it's worse if 'Yes' was uttered instead
The burden, responsibility, aspersions and guilt is immense
The time and efforts taken to clear the name and reputation is lengthy
Walking away is sometimes a perfect solution

When the heat is on, walk away
When an argument prevails, reasons are not heard
When a person is accused of wrongdoing, the time and pain taken to undo it is torturous and humiliating at times
Dying was at times a perfect solution
From the ashes, rise the phoenix

Learn to let go, to put down & ignore 放下
Only light will lit up total darkness ~ shooting in the dark achieves nothing and destroy everything

Darkness shall make way for day break
A lighted match lits up a darkened room
Why wait for daybreak if you can switch on the light? The Soul is enlightened when the Mind is calm

All pains shall go away

If living is tough and rough, why not enjoy it? Nothing can hurt if you do not allow it to
Do your best and leave the rest
We are living proofs that, without life, nothing matters

Stay positive
Stay healthy
Tomorrow's problems, like tomorrow, never come
Yesterday is gone
Only TODAY counts for good
Be current, be brave, be prepared ...the world is yours to conquer

Regrets ~ I Have Few

...From seed to sapling to plant to bud to flower & fade 

Everything goes through a cycle
Time is the best ingredient; you simply can't rush

W.Buffet said "You can have a baby in nine months but you can't impregnate 9 women & get a baby in one month!"


Butterfly : When the larvae becomes a pupa, it looks like a dead, dry case
Overtime, pupa breaks & the butterfly surfaces
The wet wings will crisp dry before it achieve her beauty & FLY
If you attempt to help break the pupa or spread its wings, the butterfly is 'born' prematurely, handicap by her wet wings and will not be able to fly  
Death is the only certainty

My successes came naturally without the 'rush' which were deliberately spaced out
I empower myself with knowledge, practices and gained experiences over time
I self studied and armed myself with various qualifications 
I compressed time to achieve more in the shortest time possible

I fought for all that I wanted

With success, comes freedom
I have choices
My life was managed and the volatility minimized

But, I do have my fair share of setbacks...they slowed me down but I did not allow myself to wallow in self-pity, paralysed nor immobilized

I was born poor but I live rich...a step at a time
I would not allow defeats to drown me 
I feel the fire within me and my believe that 'I am born a winner - winning is well within me'
I am who I am...the born winner, leader & rain-maker

Some days I stared blankly & sometimes I await my next success
Whatever, but I never slack
I stared steely into the eyes of defeat; it's painful, demoralizing and destructive
I am waiting for my next lucky break...

In moments of doubts, I PRAY
In moments of pressures, I Meditate
I believe that the break is near
I want to live the best of everyday

So long as I am around & breathing
SUCCESS is like a 'flip of a coin'

Whatever I do, I do within my means
I change Fate as my attitude determines Providence

Tomorrow is never promised

Go ...conquer the highest mountains & swim the deepest ocean
Whatever you don't do, you may not be able to do as age catches on

Today is The Day
