Amazing Lessons from Albert Einstein.

Posted: November 27, 2011 in Itu Andy

1. Follow Your Curiosity

I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”

What piques your curiosity? I am curious as to what causes one person to succeed while another person fails; this is why I’ve spent years studying success. What are you most curious about? The pursuit of your curiosity is the secret to your success.

2. Perseverance is Priceless

It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”

Through perseverance the turtle reached the ark. Are you willing to persevere until you get to your intended destination? They say the entire value of the postage stamp consist in its ability to stick to something until it gets there. Be like the postage stamp; finish the race that you’ve started!

3. Focus on the Present

Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.”

My father always says you cannot ride two horses at the same time. I like to say, you can do anything, but not everything. Learn to be present where you are; give your all to whatever you’re currently doing.

Focused energy is power, and it’s the difference between success and failure.

4. The Imagination is Powerful

Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

Are you using your imagination daily? Einstein said the imagination is more important than knowledge! Your imagination pre-plays your future. Einstein went on to say, “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination.” Are you exercising your “imagination muscles” daily, don’t let something as powerful as your imagination lie dormant.

5. Make Mistakes

A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”

Never be afraid of making a mistake. A mistake is not a failure. Mistakes can make you better, smarter and faster, if you utilize them properly. Discover the power of making mistakes. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again, if you want to succeed, triple the amount of mistakes that you make.

6. Live in the Moment

I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.”

The only way to properly address your future is to be as present as possible “in the present.”

You cannot “presently” change yesterday or tomorrow, so it’s of supreme importance that you dedicate all of your efforts to “right now.” It’s the only time that matters, it’s the only time there is.

7. Create Value

Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”

Don’t waste your time trying to be successful, spend your time creating value. If you’re valuable, then you will attract success.

Discover the talents and gifts that you possess, learn how to offer those talents and gifts in a way that most benefits others.

Labor to be valuable and success will chase you down.

8. Don’t Expect Different Results

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

You can’t keep doing the same thing everyday and expect different results. In other words, you can’t keep doing the same workout routine and expect to look differently. In order for your life to change, you must change, to the degree that you change your actions and your thinking is to the degree that your life will change.

9. Knowledge Comes From Experience

Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”

Knowledge comes from experience. You can discuss a task, but discussion will only give you a philosophical understanding of it; you must experience the task first hand to “know it.” What’s the lesson? Get experience! Don’t spend your time hiding behind speculative information, go out there and do it, and you will have gained priceless knowledge.

10. Learn the Rules and Then Play Better

You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”

To put it all in simple terms, there are two things that you must do. The first thing you must do is to learn the rules of the game that you’re playing. It doesn’t sound exciting, but it’s vital. Secondly, you must commit to play the game better than anyone else. If you can do these two things, success will be yours!

A Birthday Note.

Posted: November 21, 2011 in Tentang Dia

20111121-114327.jpg

I know you are sad, frustrated and you thought I have forgotten that today is your birthday and due to that, I am not the first person who wish “Happy Birthday” to you. I am wishing “Happy Birthday” to you now during the time you are reading this note instead.

I am far away from you at this moment and I am not available to be with you on your special day. Therefore, I have planned something for you from afar…

You received a yellow envelope with a “seducing” birthday card first. You smiled, you opened it, smiled again, read the card and flat, your feeling was being turned down by the content of the card. There were no nice long pampered lines that normally a couple would say.

Then you received a pink envelope and you were blooming again hoping this time there will be something that you are expected to read; the nice long pampered lines. Again, you were down for the second time. There were none.

Actually, I have been searching for the most beautiful and creative birthday cards with lovely words but I couldn’t find any. I found nothing up to my expectation. I guess they haven’t print it anymore nowadays. I want to create one for you but unfortunately there were few “hurdles” that I have faced and the time was mencemburui I. The first card is seducing, full of surprises and of course it is funny. The second card that you received is more to show on the creativeness expression in simple ways.

As you were feeling the so called “frustration” and “sadness”, you received your birthday gift that I have bought it previously and I passed it to Diane before I went back to Johor Bahru. I love the polka dots ribbon tied around your birthday gift. It’s lovely isn’t it? 🙂

You unwrapped the gift carefully without tearing the wrap because you feel it is precious, because it was given by me, someone that you heart most and someone who is willing to spend his entire life with you, every second to bits! Now your are extremely super duper happy after you saw the gift. I did all these on purpose to spice up our love life so that you will not stop loving me and I will not stop loving you. I have a dream about us together remember? 🙂

I am not able to celebrate your 25th birthday with you and I am not able to do a surprise birthday party like normal people does. Maybe because of the “abnormal-ness” that flows in my brain made me want to surprise you in a different way. Both cards that I have sent to you were not just another ordinary birthday cards. The first one told you that you cannot stop seducing me no matter what conditions that I am facing at that time. One day, I will be an old man and I won’t be in good looking condition for others but I hope I will always be a good looking and handsome lad in your eyes.

The second card is black color card with fancy and creative fonts. It means, always look for and create something that can make your day during the darkest moment in your life. Never give up or loose hope whenever you are there because there is always a light that will light up your way out of the dark even from a candle. Remember that love…

But love, you have found none of the beautiful sweet adorable lines in both cards because the beautiful sweet adorable lines start here, in here, at the beginning of this note. I decided to embed it here so that our children will know about us, our grandchildren will know how great was their grandparent love towards each other and most of all I want them to learn from what they have read. I do not want them to forget to appreciate their loved ones and I do not want them to forget that they owned the greatest love of their life with them.

One day, I will be gone to the other world, the cards will not survive many years from now and it cannot be inherit whilst this note will stay inside this world wide web as long as there is an internet. Our children and grandchildren can always open my weblog and read this note to you during my absence and if the short-term memory loss syndrome struck you like Lucy in the “50 First Date”. Yet, I can still spread the love while I am gone…

Happy 25th birthday to you princess and I wish that I can be the candle who will always light you up during your darkest moment. I hope you love the gift. I love you with all my heart and soul and I will see you in few days time sweetheart…

P/S: To Diane, a billion thanks for your time for assisting me to make it happen. I appreciated it a lot and I will never forget. Thank you…

Love, hugs & kisses

I was at Metro Point Kajang today meeting with one of my client around 3:50pm. I surrender his copy of investment for his reference. After settling all the things that needed to be done, I went to CIMB Kajang just opposite the Metro Point.

Reason why I went to the CIMB is because I wanna deposit some cash. Before that, I went to the ATM machine to withdraw some cash from Maybank and transferred it to CIMB account. There are two ATM machines there, one is on my left and the other is on my right.

On my left, there are two people queuing for their turn whilst on the right side there was nobody queuing except there are two old Indian couple were using the ATM. I choose to queue at the right side because I thought it will be my turn after them but I was wrong. I waited for quite sometimes and I saw they are facing difficulties with the machine.

“Hello sir, ma’am. Are you facing difficulty to use this machine? Allow me to assist you” I said. They smiled and said “Sure. Thank you very much”. They wanna activate their “cimbclicks” at the ATM but they are not familiar and do not know how to do it. Later after they have done with the activation they smiled again and said “Thank you very much lad”. When it was my turn to use the ATM, it was “Temporary Out of Service”. So I changed to the other ATM.

In front of me were two males. One was very big guy with thick mustache and big voice. The other was his son age around 15 to 17 years old. I was facing the same situation again. I waited and then I asked again “Excuse me sir, do you need any assistance? If you do, allow me to assist you”. With a happy face he said “Please, I am not sure how to change my pin and to check my balance”. I assist him and problem solved. He tapped on my shoulder, look into my eyes, smiled and said “Terima kasih banyak-banyak dik. I will remember you”. “You’re most welcome sir” I said. He left me and went to the CIMB counter.

At that moment, one of the security are closing the bank. Mr. Big with the thick mustache asking permission to enter. The security with a pump gun open the door lock and told Mr. Big with the thick mustache to enter. At the same time, Mr. Big with the thick mustache phone rung and he picked up the phone. The security scold him by saying “Nak masuk, masuk la!”. Mr. Big with the thick mustache hung up his phone and said “Awak tak boleh cakap baik-baik and elok-elok ke? Awak ingat awak pegang senapang saya takut? Dekat TV orang semua sibuk suruh bersopan santun and cakap elok-elok tapi awak kurang ajar. Kalau saya report dekat OCPD abis awak”. By that time there was another security guy came. Mr. Big with the thick mustache continue talking to the both securities “Kita ada adab, cakap elok-elok. Saya ni polis dan ada senjata api juga tapi saya tak kurang ajar. Saya cakap elok-elok dengan orang. Kenapa awak tak boleh buat perkara yang sama?” then he showed his badge. From his style and the way he talks, I think he is one of the high ranking police plus there was a police driver came and picked him up.

The rude security just sit there on the plastic chair speechless. His friend came to the rescue try to cool down Mr. Big with the thick mustache. After done with his preaching, Mr. Big with the thick mustache left the bank. The best part was, just right after Mr. Big with the thick mustache left the bank, both of the securities open the door for all the customer who were leaving from the bank and saying “Terima kasih” to them with the most softness voice I ever heard from a security guard! I guess his learned his lesson today.

The moral of the story are:

1) Never ever complaint or do “the face” when you noticed other people are in trouble. Lend a helping hand intead.

2) No matter how high is our status, no matter how powerful we are, no matter what, always remember to respect other people by asking or talking politely and nicely to them.

Is it hard to do it? Throw all the shyness or any bad feelings that you can ever think of. Lets start together to change our negative manners and behaviors from now. If YOU did not start it, who will?

Remember, it is not who you are underneath. It is what you do that defines you…

Women vs Men.

Posted: November 2, 2011 in Et Cetera

Women

If you kiss her, you are not gentleman. If you don’t, you are not a man. If you praise her, she thinks you are lying. If you don’t, you are good for nothing. If you agree to all her likes, you are a wimp. If you don’t, you are not understanding. If you visit her often, she thinks it is boring. If you don’t, she accuses you of double-crossing. If you are well dressed, she says you are a playboy. If you don’t, you are a dull boy. If you are jealous, she says it is bad. If you don’t, she thinks you do not love her. If you attempt a romance, she says you didn’t respect her. If you don’t, she thinks you do not like her. If you are minute late, she complains it is hard to wait. If she is late, she says that is a girl way. If you visit another man, you are not putting in “Quality Time”.

If she is visited by another woman, “Oh, it is natural. We are girls”. If you kiss her once in a while, she professes you are cold. If you kiss her often, she yells that you are taking advantage. If you fail to help her in crossing the street, you lack of ethics. If you do, she thinks it is just one of man’s tactics for seduction. If you stare at another woman, she accuses you of flirting. If she is stared by other man, she says that they are just admiring. If you talk, she wants you to listen. If you listen, she wants you to talk.

In short, so simple, yet so complex. So weak, yet so powerful. So confusing, yet so desirable. So damning, yet so wonderful. Women.

Men

If you kiss him, he kisses you back. If you don’t, he patiently waits. If you praise him, he says thank you. If you don’t, he feels secure in your love. If you agree to all his likes, you have met your fantasy man. If you don’t, you still get along. If you visits him often, he welcomes you every time. If you don’t, he will visit you instead. If you are well dressed, he says you are beautiful. If you don’t, you are still beautiful. If you are jealous, he reassures you and holds you. If you are not, he gives no reason to be. If you attempt a romance, he sweeps you off your feet. If you don’t, he will love you from afar. If you are minute late, he is grateful for your arrival. If he is late, he apologizes and make it up to you. If you visit another man, he is secure that you love only him. If he is visited by another woman, you are secure that he loves only you.

If you kiss him once a while, he appreciates of your affection. If you kiss him often, he will always have you in his mind. If he fails to help you in crossing the street, you know you are a big girl. If he does, he shows that he will always be there for you. If you stare at another man, he knows that you are only admiring. If he is stared by another woman, you know why – he is one hot dude. If you talk, he will always listen. If you listen, he will tell you anything you want to know.

In short, so complex, yet so direct. So strong, yet so supportive. So dazzling, yet so humble. So passionate, yet so marvelous. Men.
