Love me…

 Have you ever fallen in love or feel like you can’t live without someone? I’m sure you have. Everyone falls in love.
By the way, I do believe there’s a difference between falling IN love and falling INTO love.
Here’s my take (legal disclaimer: I’m not a love expert):
When you fall in love, it’s a stronger than life feeling towards a person or thing.
When you fall into love, you’ve fallen into the idea and feeling of love itself.
Many people tend to think falling in love is reserved for the young, that’s not true of course…
Younger people tend to experience infatuation before love, and I’m DEFINITELY making a sweeping statement here.
That there’re different phases of love as we progress through age and levels in our relationships:
Infatuation leads to passion.
Passion leads to true love.
True love leads to acceptance.
Acceptance leads to understanding.
Understanding leads to responsibility.
Throughout all the phases of love we feel, I STRONGLY feel that the key to better relationships with anyone is…
That’s how we live with each other. That’s world peace.
Yes I’m in love…

What have you done this week?

Ewen ChiaI’ve read many self improvement books since I was a teenager (not that long ago!) and the common thread among most of them is…

Write down your goals!

It’s a simple task that works to steer your mind but 99% of us DON’T do it.

Well I don’t either. Not often enough anyway.

Lets not even talk about New Year resolutions lol.

Have you heard about creating a “Life List”?

For example, 10 things you would want to do before your time on earth is up.

It’s a grand goal indeed when most people don’t even KNOW what they want. Think about it.

“You can’t achieve what you want – when you don’t even know what you want.”

That’s my own invented little quote by the way. Hope it makes sense.

Even though we don’t often write down our goals, I think it’s important to at least do something meaningful every week.

Stuff that enrich our lives and plant memories in our minds as grand experiences.

It could be little things or big things, doesn’t matter.

What have you done this week you can REMEMBER?

I can’t remember many things as I’m a rather forgetful person, however some things when done can be easily remembered because of the FEELINGS and EXPERIENCES attributed to them.

It could be simple things like watching a great movie, or doing something “out of the ordinary” than what you’ll normally do.

For example, I travel often and hardly watches movies on the plane as I’ll be on my computer. I do remember 3 months back when I did decide to watch 3 movies in a row though. Really enjoyed Wolverine too. Brings out the animal in me 😉

Just yesterday, I caught Shrek Forever After in 3D and it was GREAT. Really nice kids movie that made me feel young and happy again.

In fact I did a lot of things this week I can easily remember…

I launched this new blog, worked on a major business plan, spoke at length with my lawyer, bought a new car! (no, the events are not related to each other)

Here’s the car, it’s a Mercedes M Class:

Cars in Singapore are crazily expensive because of taxes etc. and I paid over S$250,000 for it. But it’s worth it because of the EXPERIENCE now and in the future.

I don’t profess to be a Mercedes fan but I’ve still got my other Eclass coupe which is simply AMAZING…

I’m sharing this with you to hopefully inspire you.

I’m an ordinary guy who got a start on the internet and became successful because I KNEW, WANTED and TASTED success even before I succeeded.

That’s the key – it’s about wanting it bad enough.

Some people call it the…


Do YOU have that?

You must have it to succeed in ANYTHING – life, business, relationships.

The starting point?


Nothing happens overnight but it will happen if you want it to.

“Nothing ventured, nothing gain.”

Stick to your guns.


You can be an entrepreneur!

I do believe everyone would like to become an entrepreneur and be their own boss, this is the way we’ve been socialized since young. The seed was planted a long time ago.

Working in a 9-5 job isn’t bad, I was holding positions in various multi-national companies for 8 years before coming out on my own. I do enjoy the office environment and have made many friends.

Nothing beats having the company of good colleagues, lunches and gossiping.

After 5 years of being my own boss, I STILL miss my colleagues and the nicer aspects of the corporate environment.

Working for other people is essentially a transaction where we trade time for money. Too many people burn their lives away doing that. This shouldn’t be the case.

We are all entrepreneurs at heart – everyone is unique with their own ideas and strengths!

Question is, how many people are actually brave enough to PURSUE THEIR DREAMS?

We only got ONE LIFE, and it’s a short one.

Time passes by like a bullet.

Sometimes the fear of insecurity and moving out of our comfort zones make us stay the way we are…forever.

Break free and achieve your dreams. That’s the ONLY way to move forward and live life with happiness and freedom.

Chase after the dreams and desires you had as a child – it’s never too late.

“Nothing changes until something changes.”

Remember, we’ve only got one life on this earth and time is moving faster than you know…

Go for it baby.
