on... blogging

Haven’t been active in blogging for a while now. In blogging terms, my blog was almost to the point of drying stage.But that doesn’t mean nothing had been going through my mind, or that ideas are drying out.

Ideas never dried out. Never. It’s just that whether the ideas generated in our mind are merely cliché, that has been said and said like a scratchy old song.

However, it is quite hard to do something original.

You can say your idea is fresh, and many will say so too. your fresh idea, isn’t it a combination of something out of everything you read, you listen, you encountered in life?

The greatest copywriters all have said not once but a few times in their interview, that they do not have a certain ritual when it comes to generating ideas. Ideas come best when they do not try to force them out of their brain. And most importantly, they READ. They read all kinds of books. They experienced. And that is where all their great ideas come from.

So what makes these great minds so GREAT? It’s their point of view. Many if not most of us, rather prefer to look at things from one plane, at most of the time.

This happens because this one plane/ perspective is the one that MOST people would look at. It has been walked on for far so many times that we have got used to it, comfortable with it, and for us, it is just the way things are. But not for those great thinkers.

You and I and the great thinkers of the century all shared the SAME resources. Can you say what you encounter in life is the one and only, no one has ever been through what you been through? Yes, you can put it that way. But no, in reality, it doesn’t work this way. The only difference between you and the other person, who encountered the same experience, is how you take the experience, and make it yours. One may interpret it differently from another. Some will be greatly affected, some might just been through it and feels as if they had merely suffered a scratch by the mosquitoes.

Thus, this is the line that draws between us and the great thinkers. Great thinkers are who they are because they look at life a little more differently. They are more open to experiences and they, are always ready to take risks. I couldn’t make it even clearer. You all must have heard of or read of this before but it is not easy to execute in life isn’t it? You can say that they are born smart. But I do not hold the opinion that born as a smart kid is going to achieve more than those who don’t. It’s mere pretext. You know, making excuses for oneself, is one of the greatest obstacle that is bound to take you down. Real down. The greatest of the achievers never got to the place they are today in an instant. They worked their way up, from one point to another. Nothing comes easily, and nothing comes FREE in this world. Ok, what you get from your parents may be unconditional, but apart from that, nothing is free. Period. Want something? You have to earn it. (not necessarily in a tangible form)

If you want to generate great ideas, you have to expose, expose, expose. Don’t forget, knowledge is food.

Chosen Quotes to share with

Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.

- John F. Kennedy


i remember the first time i was given the opportunity to be a leader.
gosh, i didn't know where to start!
thankfully along the way, advices are given by those i respect so much, that i learned.
i was bummed out for countless times, but in the end, everything turned out okay.
i learned, i have grown.
nowadays, after all that, i just feel it's easier to lead, than to follow.

Quote of the Day

a man with high ego are annoying and in the sense that, he never realise how weak he is.
the more he wants to show you how good he is, or to others, it reflects just how shallow he is inside, how insecure. pity, pity. his need for recognition by others to "feed" his ego, proves just that.

just as the quote from this 1 satire (movie) puts it..

"he dances to seduce;
he seduces in order to conquer;
he has to conquer because he is a man."

(men with EGO are that weak aren't they)

happy mother's day

happy Mother's Day! :)


on this day, I would give my mom a really tight embrace and hug.
a WARM HUG is what we all need to feel loved.
though I never hesitate to hug my mom whenever I feel like showing my love for her, I know she would still love it if I show her my love on MAMA day.
because she knows so well that a hug from me is enough to show and tell her: I LOVE MAMA! :)
nothing material, nothing out of the ordinary, it all comes from a HUG.

i am grateful that i am still be able to blessed with my mom's motherly love.
grateful that the brain tumour's comeback for the third time hasn't really affected my mom emotionally, so is ours.
the last time we checked with the doctors, the tumour is under control.
please bless my mom for the many years to come.
i love you. mama. xD


Happy MAMA's Day! hehe

law of attraction

however freakish it may sound, whatever we ask for do come true. it's how much you want it and how much belief you placed on it that determines when you will receive it.

we are surrounded by lots of energy field which exist at different levels of intensity, thus everything is co-related. the more we believe in a thing, the more energy being transmitted into it. and as it goes on and on, it becomes realistic. just as when you think positively, more positive things will fill up your life. likewise, the more you dread something to come crashing and ruin your life, the more likely it will happen. because as you dread for it to happen, you are focusing your energy on making it happen. therefore, it is vital for us to focus on what we WANT, rather than what we don't want in our lives.

after experiencing the power of the law of universal attraction, i now do believe in this theory. positive thinking brings more good than negative ones, and what i wished for, do come true. so i will definitely continue practicing and focusing on sending out positive vibes and make a bigger request this time.

if you are familiar with the book "The Secret" and Bestellungen beim Universum, you will know what this is all about.
