Being on holiday is the greatest thing on Earth for me because it is then that I can work my best. I know, I know. It sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? Work on holiday? Hell, when I was in Europe for 6 weeks last year, what did you think I was doing? I was working!!! And when I was on a boat once on the way out on a fishing trip, I was also on the phone organising an interview with a potential engineer to join the company! I kept telling him, if we get cut off, it means I have lost coverage as I am on a boat. To make things more challenging, he was from abroad so it was not a very clear line at all. The things I do in my life, I just love it.
So yes, I am working but it sure doesn’t feel like work, does it? I can work anywhere I want, any time, and any how, with any food and drink, with any scenery, in any position and in whatever I choose to wear. And I can work however long to however short I want too. I set my own deadlines. The best thing is that I am working non-stop because I love it. There is nothing like being passionate in your very own business.
In the past, I would work a lot too but that work got me recognition. Of course if you are a star performer, your boss will notice you isn’t it? So I claim to fame very quickly in every company I join but I don’t think the renumeration matches the amount of effort that I put in. Although I made some money, the company made even more money and the percentage I got for that despite being pivotal in its success was minuscule. I can tell you that this sure as hell beats working for someone else. I am my own boss now and I love it.
I need to clean up my home in KL and make it more work conducive. At the moment it is just one big mess. Michelle Mone (my new idol) says that if your drawers aren’t tidy, your business wouldn’t soar. Boy, do I believe her – LOL! So yes, that is my priority next week. I am going to be ruthless and throw every toy out. TOO BAD.
Although it breaks my heart that those expensive ELC alphabet machine toys have to go as well, what the heck. Better now than never. I have nobody to give them to nor the time to sell them so whooooooosh, out they go.
I had a lovely facial and massage today at the spa. It cost a bomb but I kept telling myself it’s OK. Don’t be so stingy. This is only just over 10% of what you earned last week (the company, Naturally Plus, pays me weekly – currently about RM5,000 weekly and increasing when you total up all my accounts). Give the dying hotel a chance. But I’d much, much rather give cash tips to the staff instead of the damn hotel. I have learnt from my boss recently in generous tipping. In the past, RM10 for me is an average tip (let’s not compare tips in Europe and USA, OK?) but ever since I saw my boss tip RM60 at a restaurant, it’s got me thinking. Just imagine the joy that the other party has. What is money after all? Easy come, easy go as my Mom has always said. Mom was the most generous person in the whole wide world.
And whilst I start to practise this habit, I am praying why not the multi-billionaires of the world just fling me a couple of million, right? Uhuh. Why not indeed.
Recently I have made some incredible offers to some women but it all sounds too good to be true. Well, the thing is sometimes you just have to take a risk and believe. Like if I were to give you RM1,000 and not ever expect anything back, believe it!!!! I even considered giving much more away once but thank God, the Hubs stopped me in my tracks. Because that would have been a disaster. Already some of the people I have given free money to have stabbed me in the back, can you imagine the hurt that I would have had to endure if I had given more? Forget it. And these ladies are probably bitching about how I need to buy people. Too hilarious.
I learn this from my Mom. What goes around comes around. And when practised, it really does come true. Thank you, Mama.
We have a terminal cancer patient whose sister read my blog one day and decided to try our products. She wasn’t skeptical and negative like many and just trusted me. It’s a good thing she did because the journey has been so rewarding for the patient. She is feeling much better and not just that, she has worked hard to make the products affordable and because of her commitment and trust with us, my boss gave her over RM10,000 worth of products. And a trip to Japan. AND I have promised this lady that once she is in the all clear, I am taking her on a cruise ship for a holiday. That’s our pact. Financial freedom is a wonderful thing indeed. It allows me such freedom. And this is what drives me to work damn hard. So I can give back to the causes that I want to. Women and children. Why waste my talent.
I am rounding up more and more women to join me in this business. It is a great business because where else can you achieve such a fast income rise? The work is not difficult once you have confidence in the products. It is when you are still testing the product and feeling skeptical that it is difficult. Oh, and I must mention that you would need confidence in yourself too. If not, I will talk you to death until you start seeing the light of confidence within yourself. We were all made the same with 2 hands and 2 legs and we all have a vagina and a brain. But everyone has that special something and that is why you are you! Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you are less than amazing and don’t ever let anyone make you feel like shit. Do NOT give anyone the permission to bring you down. Take charge of your own destiny, ladies. Take action and make a difference in your own life and in the lives of others. Or drift into the direction where the wind takes you and continue with your current life.
I have friends who are happy the way they are. They say they are and they say they do not want to go anywhere. This is because they do not want to put in the work. In a sense they are selfish but I really cannot fault them because sometimes it is lack of self-esteem that makes them not want something bigger. They don’t think they deserve something bigger. Some are afraid of failure. If they try, they might not make it. And some are just plain fucking lazy. Those are the real selfish ones because they are so capable and know exactly what needs to be done yet. If every one of us could make a difference, just imagine how much better this world could be? JUST IMAGINE.
So I did a lot of planning this holiday on what I needed to get done, designed that long task list which included little projects that I needed accomplished for this business, then set up a schedule for my team because they need my time too. I also have a plan for my own education and improvements laid out (and I am so excited about this because you girl who kept harping on about the Izumio factory, I actually approached the UNIVA Capital Chairman to enquire about it!!!). And last but not least, I have my incredibly wonderful family who keep me grounded and real, who make me laugh every single day without fail and who support me like nobody ever will. I owe them my life.
It really feels like a switch has turned on after I attended the National Achievers Congress. I know people who frown upon it and would never waste their time attending such an event and quite honestly, I used to be one of those people. Why go watch Anthony Robbins talk when I already know everything, right? Wrong. I was already happy where I was earning a good salary, more than my peers. What is the big deal? The big deal is that it will take you to the next level.
There is always something to learn, peeps. Always. You may think you know everything, but you don’t. And your arrogant attitude alone is going to set you up for failure. When I was in my mid 20s, I thought how nice it was if I could earn RM20,000 per month. And then it happened. And trust me, when it does, you WILL want more. Then in my late 30s, I thought how nice if I could earn RM40,000 per month. And then it happened. And now, I am thinking how nice it would be if I earned RM100,000 per month. Whilst I can already see this happening, I am wondering if I should not be aiming for more. When I tell some of my friends, they think I am crazy. But it’s real. So, so real. And thanks to Naturally Plus, I am going to get there.
There is much work to be done. As I battle my way through oncologists of the country, I am sure I will win. If American Doctors are already noticing the products, come on, it’s not Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, OK? This is serious business.
We are here to save lives.
