What I’ve learnt over the years, is that while thinking (and thinking BIG!) is great and the starting point of all success, nothing is learnt or experienced until massive action is taken. Taking action can be incredibly rewarding as it allows us to begin a journey of self-discovery and learning – something which simply can’t be taught in a formal classroom.
A baby for example, doesn’t learn from a guide how to walk, but by doing: from standing up and falling down continuously, to finally walking on its own. In fact, it takes most babies around 1,000 hours of practice from the moment he/she can stand to walking unassisted.
How many people do you know who believe one thing and yet seem to behave contrary to their beliefs?
It’s easy to believe in positive reinforcement – until someone’s not hitting their numbers.
It’s admirable to believe in open communication – until you have to say something that’s uncomfortable.
It’s one thing to believe that all people are worthy of respect and dignity, and yet quite another thing to champion respect and dignity for all.
Years ago, i hated reading. I never touched a book since i've left school but when i went homeless, reading a book was the only luxury and entertainment that i had. I still remember the very first book that i read by the beach back in September 2009 and even before the movie was out. It was, The Hunger Games.
Please kindly be informed that for today's blog entry, i am not going to write much but it still contains a very important message nevertheless.
Honestly, i am pretty affected by what is actually going on in our society nowadays - which propels me to share this very thought provoking video that i have kept with me a few years back. It was a presentation delivered by David Icke. This video was first recorded and uploaded onto Youtube sometime in 2012 yet it still hold so much truth and situations remain unchanged till this day.
There will be times when everything may not go as planned or you were caught by surprise.

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.”’
There was a time when I didn't think I could ever be happy. I felt all alone. I felt confused, angry and overwhelmed.
I am grateful that all began to change when I started looking inside. I discovered how I was the cause of my unhappiness and what exactly stood between me and enjoying life.
In this post, i would like to share with you the 15 things we need to stop doing and we will be well on our way to happiness which in turn will effect how effective the outcome will be on anything we put our action on.
1) Neglecting yourself and your needs
One of the biggest things you were ignoring was what was right for you. You looked outside for the answers. You looked to friends and society to tell you how to live your life. It was too painful to discover what you needed, so you gave away your power and hoped that would solve everything.
It will not. Eventually, you'll realized that no one really knows how to live a happy life. Some seem confident, but they don’t really know. Even the happiest of people go through dark times.
When I began noticing what I felt drawn to do and what felt right for me, things began to change. It happened slowly. I wasn’t confident at first, but I began to listen to myself. I communicated with me through feeling. When something was right for me, I felt peace, joy, and curiosity inside. When something wasn’t right, it felt lifeless, dead.
Listen to yourself.
