Wishing You Happy & A Prosperous Chinese New Year 2016

2016 Chinese New Year falls on February 8. It is the Year of the Monkey according to the
Chinese zodiac. The monkey is a clever animal. It is usually compared to a smart person. 
During the Spring and Autumn Period (770 - 476 BC), the dignified Chinese official title of marquis was pronounced 'Hou', the same as the pronunciation of ‘monkey’ in Chinese. The animal was thereby bestowed with an auspicious meaning.

We are very blessed to live in Malaysia as a Malaysian Chinese where we celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year peacefully with all our fellow Malaysian from different races and cultural backgrounds.
This Chinese New Year also reminded me of my genealogical roots from China. My grandfather and grandmother both came from China. My father was born in Malaysia and I belong to the second generation Chinese born outside of China.
The Chinese New Year, being one of the traditional festivals is the best time for Family Reunion. It is the time for the whole families to reunite together. Unity in the family is highly valued by the Chinese families all around the world.
Talking about unity reminds me of a story that I want to share with you.  We all know that you can easily break one chopstick, but it's quite difficult to break a bunch of chopsticks. This is so called "unity is strength", and this story has been handed down generation after generation. 
Once upon a time, there is an old man who had twelve sons, every one of them has one merit or another, but they always fought against each other to be the best. At one of the Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner, the old man who is in his old age, at the dinning table gave one chopstick each to his sons, and ordered them to break it. 
The sons did easily. Then he gave them each a bunch of chopsticks, and again asked them to break it. But the sons found it was very difficult to do so, almost impossible. The old man did not utter any other words accept asking his sons to start eating together. All of his sons understood what their father was trying to teach them. 
From that night onwards, they stopped fighting each other and started to work together in unity as a big family. 

Wishing you all a Happy & Prosperous Chinese New Year blessed with a united family. Unity is Strength. God Bless.

When Adversity Knocks On Your Door, How Do You Respond?

When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean. I choose to be a coffee bean. Find out Why...
This morning I was doing some reflection on the events that happened to my life in 2015 while I was enjoying a cup of traditional Vietnamese Coffee at my home.
Year 2015 have been a very eventful year for me travelling to many countries in South East Asia conducting personal and leadership development trainings to develop leaders. My passion have always been to inspire and help individuals to succeed through an on-going personal and leadership development.
While I was travelling to the different countries meeting peoples from different races and cultures, I found out that many peoples are not prepared to face challenges and adversity in life. They want a life that is easy with less problems and challenges. 
I want to share this beautiful story to inspire you to be prepared on how you should respond when you are faced with challenges in life and when adversity knocks on your door. It is a choice on how you respond. Choose to “Stay POSitive in all Circumstances."
Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed. Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire.
Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot and ground coffee beans in the third pot. He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter, moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing. After twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup.
Turning to her, he asked. “Daughter, what do you see?” “Potatoes, eggs and coffee,” she hastily replied.
“Look closer”, he said, “and touch the potatoes.” She did and noted that they were soft.
He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.
Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face.
“Father, what does this mean?” she asked.
He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity-the boiling water. However, each one reacted differently. The potato went in strong, hard and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak. The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water. Then the inside of the egg became hard. However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new and totally wonderful.
“Which one are you?” he asked his daughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean?”
The moral of the story is that in life, things happen around us, things happen to us, but the only thing that truly matters is how you choose to respond to them and what you make out of it. Life is all about learning, adopting and converting all the challenges that we experienced into something positives.
Jim Rohn once said, “Don't wish it was easier wish you were better. Don't wish for less problems wish for more skills. Don't wish for less challenge wish for more wisdom”
Enjoy the next 11 Days before the end of Year 2015. Expect great things to happens to you and your family in Year 2016!

Why I Choose Network Marketing Profession?

I have been an entrepreneur since finishing my high school in 1985 and there are many people who asked me this question, "Why do you chose the Network Marketing Profession." 

Below are 7 Reasons Why I Choose Network Marketing Profession:-
1. Passive Residual Income   
Network Marketing provides me with the opportunity to leverage my time to create wealth. To be able to have more time and money is the ultimate goals that I want to achieve.
2. Freedom   
No other business opportunity to my knowledge provides me with the freedom that Network Marketing does. I can choose to work with whom I want, where I want and when I want.
I am free to choose how to market my business whether it is through social media marketing, online through the internet, person-to-person, through the mail, over the phone, in small groups presenting to a few people or to a big group presenting to thousands of people.
3. Low Start Up Costs   
Unlike conventional or franchising business I do not need to invest in a large amounts of money into my business. Network Marketing provides the opportunity for ordinary people like me with the desire to succeed to earn extraordinary incomes. The sky is the limit in term of earning opportunities.
4. International Business  
It is a borderless global business opportunity. There is no restriction. You can choose to do your business in any countries that the company is in operation. Currently I am doing my Network Marketing business in a dozen of countries.
This has been made possible by the power of the internet, social media marketing and the advancement in distribution networking. I have made friends and business associates from all over the world and this has been built from the comfort of my own home.
5. Support  
The advantage of joining a Network Marketing business is that, “You are in business for yourself, but not by yourself.” There will be a team of committed and successful Upline Leaders who will always be interested to help you to become successful. They will provide you with the necessary attitudes, skills and knowledge to build a successful business.
As you start to build your own business, you will also start to build a team of your downline. This team of downline will get personal support and coaching from you and your experienced upline leaders in your team.
The Network Marketing company that you have partnered with will also be committed to helping you and your team to become successful. The company will provide all the necessary sales and marketing business tools, corporate events, functions, rewards and incentives to support all distributors to build their business. Distributors are highly valued by the Network marketing company as the most important assets in the company.
6. Training
If you choose the right Network Marketing Company and Field Leadership Team, you and your team will have access to one of the best training and business building system available in the industry to teach and coach you and your team to become successful in building your business.
I am blessed to join one of the best Network Marketing Company and Field Leadership Team in the Network Marketing industry. I am mentored by some of the best leaders in the Network Marketing industry with successful proven track records.
7. Tax Advantages 
When you join a Network Marketing company you started a business of your own. Businesses have various tax advantages over ordinary employees. 
Possibly the greatest advantage of all is that as a business you are allowed to deduct your expenses from your income before calculating how much tax you should pay. As Robert Kiyosaki say’s…”Businesses earn, spend and pay taxes. Employees earn, pay taxes and spend.”
Watch the video below by Entrepreneur and Author of the best selling business books of all time, the “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” series, Robert Kiyosaki on why he believes Network Marketing is The Perfect Business.

"Everyday is the Season" to Work Hard

The Ants Philosophy

We can definitely learn some lessons from the ants.  Proverbs said, “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.”

Here’s a very simple and powerful 4 part lessons taught by one of my personal and leadership development mentor, the late Jim Rohn, The Ants Philosophy.

Over the years Jim Rohn have been teaching children about a simple but powerful concept - the ant philosophy. We can apply The Ant Philosophy to our personal and professional life.

Jim Rohn said, The Ant Philosophy have an amazing four- part philosophy.

1. Ants Never Quit.
That's a good philosophy. If they're headed somewhere and you try to stop them; they'll look for another way. They'll climb over, they'll climb under, they'll climb around. They keep looking for another way. What a neat philosophy, to never quit looking for a way to get where you're supposed to go.

2. Ants Think Winter All Summer.
That's an important perspective. You can't be so naive as to think summer will last forever. So ants are gathering in their winter food in the middle of summer.

An ancient story says, "Don't build your house on the sand in the summer." Why do we need that advice? Because it is important to be realistic. In the summer, you've got to think storm. You've got to think rocks as you enjoy the sand and sun. Think ahead.

3. Ants Think Summer All Winter.
That is so important. During the winter, ants remind themselves, "This won't last long; we'll soon be out of here." And the first warm day, the ants are out. If it turns cold again, they'll dive back down, but then they come out the first warm day. They can't wait to get out.

4. Ants Do All They Possibly Can.
And here's the last part of the ant philosophy. How much will an ant gather during the summer to prepare for the winter? All that he possibly can. What an incredible philosophy, the "all-that-you-possibly-can" philosophy.

So what do we learnt, Never Give Up, Look Ahead, Stay Positive and Do All You Can because “Everyday is the Season”

Wishing you Greatness and Success,

Wishing You A Quantum Leap Success For 2012!

February 29, known as a leap day in the Gregorian calendar, is a date that occurs in most years that are evenly divisible by 4, such as 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016. Years containing a leap day are called leap years. February 29 is the 60th day of the Gregorian calendar in such a year, with 306 days remaining until the end of that year.

I am challenging myself to commit the remaining 306 days to do my best to experience another Quantum Leap of Success in my journey of life in 2012!

Are you ready for a Quantum Leap of Success?
As I looked back on my journey of life as an entrepreneur from 1986 to 2009, I discover that to be successful in life, we need to have the courage to take risk and to go for a “Quantum Leap” to do things differently to get extraordinary results.

Below are some of the “Quantum Leap Actionable Ideas” that I subscribed to achieve Quantum Leap of Success in my journey of life …

1. Becoming a Risk Taker.
2)    2. Taking 100% Responsibility for failure or success. No justification!
3)    3. Becoming a Leader and not a Follower. Leading our team to explore uncharted territories and opportunities. Breaking barriers that have never been broken before.
4)    4. Subscribing to a POSitive Belief SystemPossibilities Thinking.
5)    5. Changing our daily habits to achieve positive results.
6)    6. Having an Attitude of Gratitude. Seized every opportunity that is presented to us with thanksgiving.
7)    7.Taking Massive Actions to make things happen instead of staying in our comfort zones and achieving mediocre results.
8)    8. Committing to become a Lifetime Learner. Work hard on our personal and leadership development to achieve quantum leap success to make a fortune in our life journey!

Last but not least to achieve Quantum Leap of Success I believes we need to have a very Strong Faith. 

Have Faith in God, Yourself, the Company that you work with, the Opportunity that you are blessed with and the People around you that are going to work together with you as a team to Succeed in our journey of life.

Wishing you a Quantum Leap Success for 2012,
