Today, I went for another seminar, on a new product launch and marketing campaign for the Year 2008. Another significant event at this seminar was a session given by Adam Khoo, a dynamic and powerful motivational speaker, kindly organised by the organiser to give us an advantage and head start for the Year 2008.
At the start of 2008, 2 sessions of personal development and motivational events were really awesome. Today’s session by Adam struck a chord in me too, there were many thoughts and teachings put across to us today, all valuable insights and changes to how we behave and live our life and do our business.
One significant topic was on the issue of FAILURE, due to our FEAR of FAILURE, we human beings sometimes give up easily. Being an entrepreneur, I had my critics and non-believers, who do not believe I would succeed in the career I chose. The doors I opened were many times slammed in my face straight, it was painful and hurting. Licking my wounds, there were times when our evil other self would tell us to throw in the towel and leave. In many times of crisis, I learned to be resilient and learned from my many different humbling yet enriching experiences, in life and career.
Do you feel sometimes we have blinkers fixed to our eyes and we can only see the road in front ? Have we opened up our eyes and turn 360 degrees and looked around what is actually around us ? Do we give up when events and things keep on get hitting on us down ? Have we stand up when we are down and fight again ?
Helen Keller (1880 – 1968) wrote this piece of wisdom:
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”
Do not shortchange yourself in life and in your career. The only time you fail is when you decide to throw in the towel and declare “I have failed” to the rest of the world.
“The Biggest Failure is the FAILURE TO TAKE ACTION”
After the wonderful session today, had a good chat + sharing session with Jack Lan on topics of Personal Development and Training. I learned a new phrase from Jack today, “Master Quotient“, something very interesting, meaningful and essential to learn and bring myself to the next level of my life, career, leadership training and mentoring.
On my way home on the bus, realigned my goals and objectives for 2008, it was done a few days earlier and I broke it down into smaller and distinct segments for my planning and execution to achieve my Goals 2008.
There were many more important issues, topics and insights brought up during Adam Khoo session today, I would be writing up and sharing with my readers here and let’s all CHANGE for the better and work for our Goals 2008 !
Put it all into ACTION with STRATEGIES ! Strive for your DREAMS !
