Few days ago, I caught up with a friend I know for a very long time. He’s about ten years younger than me, a high school drop-out working in a supermarket as a checkout operator.

He’s been doing this for a while, doesn’t earn much and of course, feeling stuck. That’s what he told me at the coffee catch up.

I certainly understand how miserable it can be. In my first two years of my career, I was working as an office clerk earning close to minimum wage, couldn’t see myself getting promoted and getting a huge pay rise. Needless to say, I was unhappy. …

You should be grateful all the time. Practice gratitude whenever you can. Always be grateful for what you have.

If you are interested in the personal development niche, then you must be very familiar with the above statements. Many influencers or success coaches will say you should be grateful at all times, because that will improve your spiritual health, and lead you to the ultimate path to happiness.

Not convinced? Look it up online. You’ll find thousands of articles stating practice gratitude will increase your satisfaction, motivation and energy, at the same time reduce stress and sadness.

Yes. It’s essential to be grateful; we all agree with that. The truth is, it is easy to be thankful when life is good. Say you get a promotion, your partner accepted your proposal, or finally managed to buy your first property, no doubt you will be grateful, because you are happy and things are going well. …

Many people are not happy with their life, because of their current lifestyle, relationship with others, health or financial situation.

A sad fact is, many choose to do nothing but complain, they keep saying things like, why am I so unfortunate? Why wasn’t I born rich? If only I’m more handsome/pretty, my life will be different, etc.

It might sound a bit harsh, but in my opinion, that’s what losers will do.

You have to understand that nothing will change, in fact it’ll only get worse, until you fix your mind and decide to say “Enough is enough” and take action.

Attention is the new currency — that’s what Gary Vee said all the time. The reality is, it’s not just about online marketing or business; this concept applies to virtually any aspects of life.

If you can easily become the centre of attention and without going through many struggles, you will go very far in life. And being an extrovert seems to have a significant edge in that.

They don’t seem to feel nervous approaching strangers; they are more energetic, charming and convincing when they speak.

When you are browsing on social media or watching youtube videos, you are going to see lots of ads, right? And very likely, you must have seen some internet marketers or influencers promoting themselves by giving out their books for free: They will ship the book to your address, all you have to do is cover shipping.

Quite a lot of reputable people are doing this currently, and the offer seems legit. Some books are even the best-sellers, and if you look it up on Amazon, they have pretty good ratings.

Since I’m really into personal development, I find these kinds of offer irresistible. So I have ordered a couple of free books this way, and it turns out quite a few of them are top-notch quality, both the content and the book itself — I mean, I have received hard-cover books, and the paper texture feels great. …

So earlier I have made a video of myself playing Ring Fit Adventure for 30 days, and I’ve received a few requests that they are interested to see my progress and wonder how would I look like if I play for a bit longer.

Well, since I’m so committed to this, and I want to make this as a record for myself as well, challenge accepted. This article records my progress of 100 days of body transformation with Ring Fit Adventure.

Thanks to the pandemic, I have not been to the gym a single time in 2020, and my only exercise besides Ring Fit is my weekly Taekwon-Do training, which didn’t happen very often because we were in Lockdown for a few weeks during August in Auckland. …

Public Speaking is said to be the biggest fear of many, and even over death.

It’s probably a bit exaggerated, but if there’s an option, most people will avoid doing this at all cost. I also believe there’s a good chance you hate public speaking.

You can still live a good life without doing a single presentation. However, if you wish to move up the corporate ladder, impact other people, or expose yourself to better opportunities, you’ll need to be comfortable with this.

I know, it feels awkward being the centre of attention. That’s why not many people are doing it. But on the other hand, since many are reluctant to do so, it’ll be so rewarding if you decide to step out the comfort zone picking up this skillset. …

No matter how careful and how focus we are, from time to time, we will make mistakes. We can screw up in the most creative ways, from making wrong business decisions, to forgetting to buy flowers on the anniversary date.

In case you are interested to know how to make a comeback after screwing up at work, check out this article I wrote some times ago. But right now, I want to talk about a different issue.

So what happened recently is, a friend came to me and said she had made a silly mistake at work, by transferring money into a wrong account. It’s easily fixable; all it takes is just making a couple of phone calls and reverse the transaction. …
