Am I a failure?
I tried two businesses and both did not make it. One ended in court and bankrupted.
In both businesses, I ended up in debts over $200K each time. Am I a Failure?
I tried to ride fast on motorcycle, fell down and broke many bones. Am I a Loser? A Failure?
I tried to cycle fast and banged into a lorry. Am I a Clumsy person ? Another Failure?
I studied very hard for exams and I never score perfect A. Am I not fit to be a CEO in MNC? Another Failure?
I trained very hard in martial arts and entered competitions, but never won any medals. Am I not fit to be a Warrior? Another Failure ?
I signed up to learn how to play golf. The coach refunded me the fees and advised me not come back anymore. Does that mean I cannot be coached? Another Failure?
I worked very hard overseas and came back to a home where my kids thought I was a stranger and cried when he saw me. Am I not fit to be a Father? Another Failure?
I worked hard and score top sales for my Employers and yet I was retrenched twice. Am I a lousy employee? Another Failure?
If you were me, would you call yourself a loser? A FAILURE?
I did that and called myself a Failure in those days. For many years, I never looked at myself in the mirror. All I saw was a person who cannot do anything big in life. I hated that person in the mirror.
Someone who is better not borned at all. Better not married. Better not have kids. Just grow old and die quietly. No one will come. No one will remember me. Unfit for anything outside of myself…. Until….
Until several friends saved me. They supported me. They shared their positive energy with me. They shared their knowledge with me.
I begin to see myself in different ways.
What happened to me in the past, is just dots inside my head. Nothing more.
What happened to me in the past, does not define me today. This is not a school report card where most employer pays you according to your grades.
Let me repeat this. Most employers will not pay you according to your past failure. Most of them pay you based on school grades.
As such, your true worth, is how worthy you believe you are.
Don’t let past events define you now.
You define yourself.
There is more to life than just helping your employers to make money. The company can grow. Your bosses can buy bigger houses, bigger cars. Will they share their wealth with you?
COVID-19 is a slap on many people’s faces. Wake up, loyalty to employer may not guarantee the next pay-cheque, even if you bring in the most sales dollars or stayed with the company thru thick and thin for decades.
COVID-19 may be teaching you that its time to create another stream of income . . . e-commerce, REITS, shares and stocks, rental thru properties (my fave).
Be smart. Its time to think about yourself and your family.
Create your own passive income source aka money printer aka money tree. Once you done this, no one can steal this from you.
A good life can be had. One where you have time for yourself, your family, your charity, your pets and your employer if you choose to.
Stop selling your time cheap.
Learn from COVID-19, improve yourself now. And next crisis may not hurt you at all.
I did all that for the past twenty years. And today COVID-19 did not affect me much financially.
In fact, COVID-19 makes me happier. If you like, I can show you how.
