I have been thinking about my life for quite some time.
I am not happy with it and I am getting restless.
I am not doing what I wanted to do and doing what I don’t want to do.
I have been staying stagnant for far too long and procrastinated far too much.
What was the main reason for all these?
There was once a period of time where I was taking massive actions working my butts out day in and day out, and getting the results I wanted.
But due to various excuses I gave myself when shit happens, things started to crumbled.
I blamed this and I blamed that, but who should take the greatest responsibility?
I started to stay in my comfort zone.
I tried something new, and I failed again.
FEAR of failure soon starts to consume my life. I was struggling. I was drowning.
I keep delaying doing the things that I know I should do.
What is lacking?
Consistent, concentrated and focus effort.
Life is short.
It may end one second, one minute from now or just the next moment may be my last.
I do not want to lie in my coffin with tears in my eyes.
“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream.” ― Les Brown
When we are young and healthy, we often think that we have all the time in the world, but HELL NO!
Time flies! It slipped often slipped through us effortlessly.
Whenever I looked at the markings on my table calendar, I shivered.
How much is your time worth?
You cannot buy back time!
How much time do you have in a day?
24hrs? really? seriously?
We have been taught that we only have 24hrs in a day and we have accustomed to this belief.
Actually we have all the time in the world in a day, if you make an effort to live it purposefully.
Past failures, mis-steps, mistakes
I have learnt quite a lot about myself through the past failures.
Even though I have paid quite high a price for the lessons, I am grateful that I have made those.
I believed I have become a better person.
Do what you wanna do
What you wanna do
Do what you want
What is it you want?
– Daphne Willis – Do What You Want Lyrics
What do I want?
I want to spend more time with my wife. not just on weekends.
I want to wake up feeling purposefully. not just feeling dead beat.
I want to feel excited at life. not just dragging my feet to work.
I want to do something that can benefit others. not just myself.
What interests me?
Financial markets have been giving me excitements.
I have spent quite some time learning about investing and trading.
I have crashed and burned badly before, due to my inexperience and impatience.
I have learned not to be GREEDY.
I liked building websites, and I aimed to build purposeful and beneficial website in the future, not just junk sites.
What I want to focus on?
- Stocks investment
- Forex trading
- Website building
I may fail at all 3 activities. But just succeeding at either one will give me the rewards that I wanted to achieve in life.
Why these 3 activities
The main reason is that I can engage in all these 3 activities any time, anywhere in the world with just a computer and an internet connection.
Stocks investment can generate semi passive income from dividends.
Forex trading can generate daily income.
Website building can generate semi passive income if done properly.
The most important reason is that I am interested in them!
note to myself:
I WAKE UP TO PURSUIT MY DREAMS not just going to work!!!
Follow the call of your heart, wherever it may be leading you.
Fuck their way. Do it your way, or don’t do it at all.
