It’s been a tough year filled with shame and non-achivement. But I feel so lucky that this one awesome person gave me some wise and motivational advises, on work wise at least. I shall never forget the kindness :) Hopefully I can start crawling, standing, walking and running back again. Sometimes that one simple kindness can really change other people’s life.
Just a random thought, in which reminds me about this throwback ~> Me visiting Gundam @ Odaiba~ back in 2015, I decided to travel alone from Toshima to Odaiba at night (my friends have already went back and I was the only one left in Tokyo for the last night). Despite not knowing exactly where it was, getting lost etc, I managed to arrive here. The robot light usually went off at 11.00 pm and I arrived at 11.01 pm.
I remember seeing the light being turned off from afar while I was running towards Gundam, it was quite sad so I decided to sit in front of gundam for quite a while (and I think I made the security officer a bit worried as he keeps checking what I was up to, as I was the only visitor, at that late hour).
Point is – I’m glad I made the decision to “just go-lah!” that night, as Gundam last day here was on March 5th this year. “In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take”. #beraniberaniayam #justdoit
Cheeeesy. Although I have always believe this, but I have to admit that at times, it’s quite hard for me not to feel upset and down whenever bad things happen. After all, saya hanyalah manusia biasa (typical answer :P)
Every experience in our life, was designed to shape us into the ultimate and greater version of ourselves. But we don’t always have that wisdom and enough patience to see this sooner. We mostly focus on the pain and disappointment instead.
It seems that everywhere we go, there are these ‘sets of people’ – those who like to look down and contemned on others. Always try to make people feel so small, and worse, make them believe they are small and less worthy.
This event of adversity can either result ones to; 1) believe that and quit, or 2) work harder. It is nothing but normal that we mostly just feel like giving up. Especially when it’s related to our progress in career or anything professionally. At certain limit, we feel like it’s far too heavy for us to carry the weight and bring us down.
“One of the best opportunities you can be given in life is to be underestimated.”
It also depends on how we overcome these problems. How we should learn not to take those negative opinions as a life sentence to mediocrity, but rather use this to fuel our motivation to excel.
Saje nak share cerita and tips yang insiring ni. Randy Pausch 47 tahun, seorang pensyarah computer science di Mellon Universityhe telah meninggal dunia akibat pancreatic cancer, pada tahun 2008, tetapi telah menulis sebuah buku – “The Last Lecture” before then, one of the bestsellers in 2007. What a legacy to leave behind.
Dalam sepucuk surat yang ditulis buat isterinya Jai dan anak2nya – Dylan, Logan, dan Chloe, dia telah menulis this beautiful “guide to a better life” untuk panduan isteri dan anak2nya. May you be blessed by his insight :)
Point on how to improve your life;
Personality: 1. Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 2. Don’t have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment. 3. Don’t over do; keep your limits. 4. Don’t take yourself so seriously; no one else does. 5. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip. 6. Dream more while you are awake. 7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 8. Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness. 9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others. 10. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present. 11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you. 12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime. 13. Smile and laugh more. 14. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
Community: 15. Call your family often. 16. Each day give something good to others. 17. Forgive everyone for everything. 18. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6 19. Try to make at least three people smile each day.. 20. What other people think of you is none of your business. 21. Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.
Life: 22. Put GOD first in anything and everything that you think, say and do. 23. GOD heals everything. 24. Do the right things. 25. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 26. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 27. The best is yet to come. 28. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful. 29. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it. 30. If you know GOD you will always be happy. So, be happy.
Something very inspiring aite? :) And bila fikir2, memang betul pun all these points. I pun nak try amalkan this guide as much as possible lah ^_^
Ada jugak version dalam bentuk video – Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams… enjoy!
Pada suatu hari, seorang murid bertanya kepada gurunya. Ketika itu, guru tersebut sedang mengajar tentang kasih sayang.
Pelajar: Cikgu, macam mana kita nak pilih seseorang yang terbaik sebagai orang yang paling kita sayangi? Macam mana supaya kasih sayang itu berkekalan?
Cikgu: Kamu ikut apa yang saya suruh. Kamu pergi ke padang. Kamu berjalan di atas rumput sambil memandang rumput di depanmu. Pilih yang paling cantik tanpa menoleh ke belakang lagi walau sekali. Petik rumput yang paling cantik, bawalah ke kelas.
Apabila pelajar tersebut pulang ke kelas, tiada sehelai rumput pun di tangannya.
Cikgu: Kenapa tiada rumput yang dipilih?
Pelajar: Tadi masa saya berjalan, saya cari rumput yang paling cantik. Memang ada banyak yang cantik tapi cikgu kata petik yang paling cantik, maka saya pun terus berjalan ke depan sambil mencari yang paling cantik tanpa menoleh ke belakang lagi. Tapi sampai di penghujung padang, saya tidak jumpa pun yang paling cantik. Mungkin ada di antara yang di belakang saya taadi rumput yang paling cantik tapi cikgu cakap tidak boleh menoleh ke belakang semula, jadi tiadalah rumput yang boleh saya petik.
Cikgu: Itulah jawapannya. Maknanya apabila kita telah berjumpa dengan seseorang yang kita sayang, janganlah kita mencari yang lebih baik dari itu. Kita patut hargai orang yang berada di depan kita sebaik-baiknya. Jangan kita menoleh ke belakang lagi kerana yang berlaku tetap berlaku dan takkan berulang lagi. Ingatlah orang yang paling kita sayang itulah yang paling cantik dan paling baik. Walaupun sebenarnya banyak lagi yang cantik dan baik seperti rumput…
p/s: Hmmm… dalam kata lain, mungkin jangan terlalu memilih. Apa yang kita jumpa dan hadir dalam hidup kita, hargailah… Wahhh… ayat ku, x leh blah, hahaha…
