“Life is all about turning points, while they often come from moments of darkness, it can steer us in the direction of great light… or lightbulb moments.”
– Richard Branson
Without planning what you want to achieve in your life is like going on a journey with no destination in mind.
When you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
Yes, its cliche, but consider this. If you don’t have a plan, you will not plan activities to move youself closer to your goal (If you even have one). Every decision you make will be ad-hoc and chances are – They will be all over the place.
One thing is certain – If you continue on the same path, you will end up where you are headed.
As we all know – Famous Albert Einstein Said: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expect a different result.”
Most people are busy. They work hard day after day. Sadly, most people are unknowingly put onto a path towards a destination that they dislike.
Is this their fault? Perhaps? Perhaps not. If you are uninformed, you probably don’t know where you will end up. Just get up, go to work. Do it enough times and you will finally arrive. Like it or not, who knows? Hopefully you like it there at the end of the day.
The decisions you made years ago are why you are where you are today. The job you work, the home you live in, the person you are married to, the lifestyle you have, the car you drive, the savings you have…
These are seemingly small decisions at the time when you make them. Such as choosing your university courses; Going to that party; Working Overtime; Volunteer to help complete a task for your superior; Each decision and action you chose has accumulated and manifested; Presenting itself as your reality today.
The short formula is:
If nothing happens, or nothing exciting happens; Perhaps, you might want to reconsider the things you do today.
Take a step back. Stop. Think. Make a conscious decision on what to do next. Make a decision to do things that will bring you to where you want to be at the end of the day. No matter how small the task, it is one step closer.
Never complain about your life and wallow in your problems, it cultivates negative personalities and you will eventually become consumed by your problems.
Instead – Invest time in self-development and work towards finding solutions to your problems. If you don’t give up. I am certain that you will eventually acquire the skills and emotional strength to overcome your challenges and start achieving the dream life you want to have.
Remember this, your decision yesterday has become your reality today; The good news for you is – Your decision today will determine your reality tomorrow.
Take control. Steer your life now before the pathway runs out.
Don’t become a victim of poor habits.
Don’t become a victim of poor routines.
Don’t become a victim of poor decision.
Don’t become a victim of Non-Action.
Don’t become a victim of procrastination.
Don’t become the person who destroys your own future.
Working hard + Right Mindset.
Success is the combination of both. You will probably agree that mindset make most of the difference here.

Be realistic in your goals.
Understand that every platform, profession or business has its limitations. Set realistic goals.

Some expectations are just less realistic than others.
Look around you. The people in your industry.
If you have not read our article on the left; We highly encourage you to read it. Its a good read.
Firstly – a successful person reads.
Our platform is an ecosystem where people interact and create values for each other.
The community you decide to participate in today will determine the type and level of success you will achieve.
For instance – If you decide to sell your products on Amazon instead of Lazada, then the platform would allow you a bigger reach worldwide.
But doea that mean that Lazada is an inferior platform?
No. That is not what we are saying. Every platform has its purpose. That is why you need to know what your objectives are. So that you know how to select your platform.
Your job is to understand our strategies and decide if they are a good fit for you and your desired goals.
We DO NOT reinvent the wheel. We copy our way to success.
Common misconception is that you need groundbreaking new ideas to make it big. Don’t make the mistakes of many wannabe entrepreneurs trying to invent new products or find unique market niches. Don’t kid yourself. Not everyone will become Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg.
But you are at least good enough to be the Mr Teo or Mr Tan who is living in that nice landed property around Bukit Timah.
The way to success or achieving anything you want in life is not to be unique. Researchers have studied countless successful people and found many similar traits in them
To win in wealth creation, you just need to:
We cannot think of a better way to succeed.
By now you should already know that banks play in an unfair playing field as compared to you and me.
We have to work for those dollars; Not the banks. They just need to punch in a bunch of numbers and abracadabra! Money!
Its time to take off the blindfold that society has placed over you.
Knowledge is power. Knowledge shared is power multiplied – Robert Boyce.
