Apple Tree

Have you seen an apple tree? A full grown apple tree can bear about 400 apples. There are around 8 to 10 seeds found in an apple. In another words, there are around 3,000 seeds found on a single tree when it bears fruits.

How many seeds needed to grow into an apple tree? Yes...the answer is one seed only. Successful people tried many times before they became successful. If we are determined to become successful, we have to adopt the never give up attitude. Most people who failed are those who gave up too early.

Even a tree understands the "Law of Large Numbers".

Paint With Colours Or A Shade Of Grey ?

Lydia Sum Tin Ha, fondly known as Fei Fei, the "happy fruit" Hongkong actress passed away yesterday after 2 years battle with liver cancer. She was 61. Her rotund figure, jolly smile and iconic horn-rimmed glasses made her special in the entertainment arena. She has casted more than 70 movies since she started her film debut at age 13. She will be missed by countless of her fans in Hongkng, Taiwan, China and Asian Countries. She lived a colourful life.

What about us? Are we painting our lives with colours or just simply a shade of grey? Are you living your lives in exclamations or are you living your lives in explanations?

Successful people find reasons for their success and continue to be more successful. Failures find excuses and explain their cause of failures and even blame others for their failure.

Our birth right is to become successful. Grab our paint brush and let's paint rainbows in our lives together!

It's Spring

It's the Lunar Chinese New Year. It's time to renew our faith and set challenging goals for ourselves.

It's Spring. It's like the sunrise in the morning. People who wake up late miss this greatest feat of the nature.

It's time to sow. It's time to jump out of bed and plan our year. We don't need Lillian Too or Joey Yeap to predict our future. Our future is actually the sum total of the way we may work in the next 12 months.

We cannot direct the wind, but we can set our course. Let's together exercise our God given courage to brave the challenges in the Year of Rat.

I belive it's another year of abundance, do you?

Goals And Scores

The soccer season is here! There are two things very important in a soccer game...the goal posts and the scores. Can you imagine twenty two players chasing over a ball without any goal post in the court, they will be running aimlessly and there won't be a game. On the other hand, if there are no scores to indicate their achievements or lacking of it, there won't be a game either.

In life, we must have goals. Goals big enough to challenge our strength and capability. We must have scores. Scores to measure our progress and pacing others who are better than we currently are.

Do we have a goal for 2008 and a score board to measure our progress?
