Write to Influence, Read to Empower

 

I am the result of the good choices I’ve made and the bad choices.

After 2 years of retreat from this blog, a quick visit reignites a spark of internal fire inside my mind. The same motivation to document inspiration and stories for my peers in the midst of confusion and soul-searching journey to find their true selves, to record amazing life lessons for myself and the next generations, to proclaim that you, my reader and me, are not alone.

From many years of self-development, mentored largely by my best partner, Jayz, my target audience has changed from adolescents to young adults. So here it goes: this is a space to collect inspiration I picked up along the way, a snippet of knowledge and facts that will hopefully empower other people to bring out the best of themselves.

Here I am, at 1.40am in the morning, composing a short introduction to continue what I started 2 years ago.

Jayz, you’re my motivation.

Sell Me This Pen!

http://senatorclub.co/best-answer-to-sell-me-this-pen-i-have-ever-seen/

(head straight to the story)

Here’s the simple sales framework I used to answer “sell me this pen”. Memorize it for yourself.

  1. Find out how they last used a pen (gather info)
  2. Emphasize the importance of the activity they last used a pen (respond to info)
  3. Sell something bigger than a pen, like a state of mind (deliver info)
  4. Ask for the buy (closing)

 

8 Reasons It’s Okay To Be Single

I feel so much better after reading this blog. Well written 🙂

With Valentine’s Day having just passed, we’ve all been witness to self-loathing Facebook statuses about being single, but this doesn’t just happen because of the holiday.

I find often times the perception in society is that if you’re single, you’re unhappy – and if you’re in a relationship, you’re automatically happy.

Given how many people live fulfilling single lives and how many people settle into the wrong relationships, this is not always the case.

Here are 8 reasons it’s okay to be single.

It shows you don’t lower your standards.

Many people think that if you’re single, it means you can’t find someone. But, in reality it’s smarter to wait for the right person to come along, than to settle for all of the wrong ones. Give yourself a pat on the back for committing to this.

It gives you time to learn about yourself.

The most important relationship you’ll…

Shaping Up

I always let my daily lives passed by without doing any exercise 😦

So I was really inspired by this image

And so today I tried to do a 45 minutes exercise and I sweat a lot. It was really effective, and I suggest everyone (including myself in the future) to do this regularly, at least 2x a week! Do it in the evening coz you can then relax and sleep soundly at night after the exercise 🙂

I don’t need to go to the gym anymore and this exercise only takes 45 minutes! Wohho! I can save my money and my time. And it shapes my body too!

Be fit!

What Hurts You Makes You Stronger

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

― Theodore Roosevelt
