How To Get From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be

Isn’t it fascinating that personal development started when we were still in our mother’s womb, I found an article on “What babies learn in the womb” (click on the link) and wonder why do most adults stop learning. My best guess is that they are comfortable being where they are and thus “decided” that this is who I am, this is all that I can offer the world thus they stop developing themselves and then they wonder why they are living a mediocre life and envy successful people.

When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 1 Corinthians 13:11

Imagine what would happen to a child or even a baby when he/she finds no pleasure in developing itself? For all it’s life, it has to depend on it’s parents/caregivers to provide for it’s needs and will never contribute back to society. I’m sure that didn’t happen and you would have put your mind and soul to study, learn, develop and achieve what you currently have and posses.

I for one have been living a comfortable life and thus I stopped growing. When you stop growing, you don’t think you have anything of value which you can share and that was what happened to me. It wasn’t easy and with encouragement from my husband, I pushed myself to start developing myself by reading and listening to podcast by successful people. He has the gift of exhortation, which is to motivate and inspire people to be better individuals.

Personal development is an essential part of life, Jesus himself is into personal development, as stated in Luke 2:52 “And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.”

Make it a habit to learn something each day no matter how small and in time, I am sure you will look back and be amazed at how much you have grown and able to achieve more than you have ever dream of.

Our Mindset

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

PositiveThoughtsChangeLifeOur mind……is like a sponge absorbing anything that we willing put into it; the movie we watch, the music we listen to, the materials we read will shape our minds.

If we adults are not careful over what we put into our minds, how then can we expect our children to have the “right mindset” towards life? We can’t pass on to them what we don’t have therefore it is vital for us to fill our minds with good and positive elements so we can pass on a rich heritage to our children.

How else to change our minds when there are so many negativism in our culture and in the world? We can do this by making a conscience effort…

  1. to change our habits – get rid of old bad habits by replacing it with habits which will benefit you.
  2. to determine how we spend our time – are we spending our time nurturing our soul, our children and self development?
  3. to choose who we spend our time with – if you spend time with negative people, you will be negative, if you spend time with people who build each other up, everyone will benefit from that friendship.

Our mind is indeed a very powerful tool which we possess. Many times when my kids say “I can’t.” I’ll tell them “if you think you can’t, then you can’t. If you think you can, you will surely find a way.” And when they change their mind from thinking “I can’t” to “I can”, there were able to solve the challenge which they were facing.

Many times, people’s lives change when they have an “AHA moment”, a time when their mind switch from impossible to possible from “I can’t” to “I can, I should, I have to” and that is when we say…the rest is history……

What else do I have to say so I can change your MIND?

Why hosting your own blog is the way to go.

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Today I want to share with you the benefits of hosting your OWN blog versus hosting your blog on a free weblog publishing platform like blogspot also known as blogger.com.

All businesses and individuals alike is into minimizing cost and maximizing profit so why would one want to spend money to buy a domain, pay for hosting (yearly cost) and then employ a web designer to set up and design their blog, when all these can be done immediately and best of all, without any cost incurred.

So why spend money when you can get it for free?

  1. A blog or website is a virtual asset, not a liability. It can help you generate an income so it is definitely worth to invest some money in this virtual asset.
  2. Hosting your own blog will go a long way as you will have your own back up while using a free weblog, you will be at their mercy. If they find the information on your blog violates their terms for what ever reason, they can just bring your blog down without prior warning.
  3. You will be able to personalize the design of your blog when your host your own blog where most free weblog’s design are limited and plain.

Are you all pumped up to host your own blog but don’t know where to start? Below are some links to get you started:

Why Do We Celebrate Easter?

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Christians celebrate 2 main event every year, Christmas and Easter. Many people celebrate Christmas, even non-Christians join in the celebration of giving presents to their loved ones.

What about Easter? Why do Christians celebrate Easter? We celebrate Easter the Sunday after Good Friday. You see, on Good Friday, Jesus died on the cross to atone for our sins and on Sunday which is Easter Sunday, He rose from the dead and all those who believed in Him will one day be risen and be with Him for all eternity.

It is not something that is easy to teach our children. So we use curriculum like What’s In The Bible help us make it interesting and fun for our kids.

The Secret Of Being Wealthy

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

To become wealthy is to give of yourselves, and this does not mean to give all your money away until you forget to take care of your family. Many people get this wrong.

You see, some of us may not have money currently, but we have been given other things by God such as time, skills, knowledge, and other tangible or intangible resources.

If you give this away and bless others (without sacrificing time or money away from your family, which some may have made the mistake to ignore family and seek other things which is wrong), then you will be rewarded with wealth.

And again, wealth is a function of 2 things which is wisdom and connections/network/contacts.

When you give away your time, skills, knowledge, or anything you have at the right time at the right place to the right people that needs it, you will be blessed with new friends, and new ideas/wisdom as you share.

“Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything.” From the Bible – the Book of Proverbs Chapter 11 verse 24 (New Living Translation)

I’m Going To Cheat Today!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

You must be thinking who would announce to the world that she is going to cheat. Let me clarify that your spouse/partner is not the only one you can cheat on…WHAT? If not cheating on a spouse/partner, then cheat on who?

In my case, cheat on what…you see, last year my hubby and I started an exercise regime and we have been consistent in keeping this new routine. It has been a year where we exercise 5 days a week each time for 30 minutes. We exercised at home following different exercise programme and after 8 over months, we do feel physically stronger but not much difference in our weight.

We then invested in an XBox 360 with Kinect (game console) where it has a device which can scan and detect your body movement so you can play without needing to use a controller (depending on the game). We then started to follow Nike’s Training Program. After a short 6 weeks, I saw results! Finally! It was worth the investment.

After 3 months of following the programme, it seems like we reached a cap on how much weight we can loose. We then discovered that it takes more than exercise if we want to achieve the desired figure, we have to look after our intake!

So this year we are going to change the way we eat. We were told to spread our meals by increasing the frequency and decreasing the portion size. To make better choice by eating more healthy food. So bye-bye to fast food, junk food and comfort food?

Well, yes and no. You see 6 out of 7 days, we will watch our diet and 1 day is set aside for us to indulge in what we want to consume, we call that day “Cheat Day” and it is today.

Yipee!

Today is also my Father-In-Law’s birthday and we will be celebrating him with a 9 course dinner and surely a birthday cake.

So there you have it, this is my confession…I’m cheating today. Cheating on my DIET.

New Year, New Resolutions, New Investment Model

Happy New Year!

It’s another new year and we draw up new resolutions. What are your resolutions for 2015?

One of mine is to grow my money by making my money work for me. How do you do this, you may ask, I do this by investing my EXTRA cash.

Your next question might be, invest in what and where to I find these investment opportunities? I have diversified my portfolio to other investment classes particularly low risk high growth businesses which are filtered by business model experts and which has these benefits:

1. No need for hassle of bank loan approval, yet able to give 1-5% ROI per month (not per year) investing as a founding shareholder of a startup company or a project member. (some may even give you 400 times your money when it goes to IPO or buyout by other big companies).

2. Low amount of cash required to start investing (as low as RM 1000) can get you into the investment

3. Totally passive income after putting in the cash without any work on our part (this is not MLM or forex or stocks but investing in different local and foreign startup companies/projects and totally legal and no referral needed to make money)

Further to that, it is a new investment model that allows you to come up with small capital to make multiple times your principal, versus properties which requires you to come up with a large sum and wait long before seeing returns of only a fraction of your capital.
