The Indian Government is building a reservoir in a far reach rain forest. Lorries are plying on the muddy road for months. Due to heavy rain fall for more than a week, the mud is so whipped up and made it difficult for the lorries to drive up the hill.

Workers are summoned to scope the mud away. A young native collected home the unwanted mud (now transformed into clay) and molded some pots and vases. He put them into an furnace for a couple of days and again the pots and vases transformed into pieces of art !! Yes....pieces of arts that can fetch very good price!!

'Transform' means the change of state, it won't and cannot change back to the original form, in this case, mud.

Successful people are those who went through transformation. Change is not good enough for one may change back to his usual self. Those people who have transformed will not look back, they only look forward. Like caterpillars transforming into butterflies. (Read Article on April 27, 2008 - What have you got to give up)

Are You Running Out Of Time?

Jackson was (once) a very successful businessman and he was a millionaire in the 90's. Jackson is now 70 years old. Due to bad economy, he lost his fortune and now retired and wheelchair bounded. He wasn't bitter in his final days, he was just disappointed that he had run out of time.

Are you running out of time? Certainly not! Wait a minute...if you are 42 years old and your child is merely a one year old infant, you are running out of time. If you are 49 years old and you have as yet own a shelter, you are running out of time. If you are 51 year old and yet saved some RM200,000 or more, you are running out of time. Any turn of events, like global petrol hike and food shortage, ill health and disability will lift you off the ground! Reduce spending and increase revenues are the only two answers.

Do you (still) believe in the saying: "It's never too late"?

Plan Your Journey

In the far reaches of Africa, a traveler trudging along a narrow dirt road came upon this sign posted on a tree: "Choose your route with care, you'll be in it for the next 30 miles."

Yes, life in a journey, you also should choose your route wisely as there is no trial run, it's not a full dress rehearsal. There is no turning back in life. If you don't map out what you want in life, you likely will end up being a failure.

So, choose your life journey wisely, be focus and be a success.

There Is Always A Better Way

I have seen offices with a sign shown as "Salesmen are not allowed" pasted on their glass doors. I think there is a better way to say this. Maybe the sign should be changed to "For security reason, we only receive visitors with appointments".

Sales persons are the people who bring you all the good things in life. They introduce you a car, a stove, a water purifier, a fridge, a computer and the list goes on.

Without them, we probably are still living on tree tops. I am proud being a sales person.

Fox And The Grapes

There is this little fox living in a forest next to a fenced vine yard in Australia. The fox was dazzled by the ripe juicy grapes. However, it could not get through the fence because it's fat.

After three days of starvation, it successfully reduced its body size and eventually get through the fence. The fox was so happy because it could eat as much grapes as it wanted.

Alas, after eating grapes for a few days, the fox grew fat again and it couldn't get out of the fence. The fox has to go through another two or three days of starvation in order to get out of the vine yard.

Some people are like this fox, they are prepared to take trouble to enjoy good things in life. Some people behave differently, they merely wait outside the wine yard starring at the juicy grapes.
