Hi everyone, it has been a while since my last post. A lot has happened and a lot of water has gone under the bridge. I have been doing some research and a lot of reading and I have been thinking that it’s time I got back into the saddle, so to speak.

This post is just to let you know that I am still around. Nothing profound or sagely to impart, just to share with you a few thoughts, a few things that I think are very important to all of us.

These are 5 nuggets or 5 tips to success I want to leave with you today.

  • Believe in yourself and your God-given talents. If you don’t believe in yourself and display that belief enthusiastically, it will be difficult  for others to believe in you.
  • Never give up on your dreams. If you give up on your dreams you run the risk of  living a life without direction. A “dreamless” individual is a person who lives a life without meaning or purpose, which translates to a wasted life. Keep your dreams alive.
  • Think BIG. You deserve the best, so expect the best and you will have the best. If you think you are a mediocre person you will be treated like a mediocre person.
  • Share your most intimate thoughts and ideas with only those whom you know will encourage you.  Too many times we open our mouths prematurely and in a wanton manner to the wrong people or around negative individuals who we allow to discourage us.  If we are not totally sold on our ideas or thoughts and we express them to people who do not share our beliefs, we run the risk of having our dreams stolen from us. This keeps us trapped in the rat-race surrounded by people going nowhere.
  • Never stop learning. There are no educated individuals because no one person knows everything. If you think you are an educated individual and have no more need for continued learning then you become stagnant, full of pride which will lead to your downfall. The usefulness of a cup is in its emptiness. Empty yourself daily to acquire new knowledge, develop a burning desire to learn more so that you can be more, have more and be able to help more people in this life. When you are able to help more people, you will be positioned to earn more.

I hope you found something of value in the above that you can use to improve your life, your circumstance or  maybe you had an “aha” moment or two. 

Life is all about relationships and if by any reason you did me the honor of reading these few lines, then I am deeply gratified and we have met through this medium.

Have a wonderful day.

  • 250120070012A very popular response to any set-back in one’s life is to quit. Unfortunately this observation is true for most people, because they are “weak willed” they just do not have a “back bone” so to speak. It is said that “winners never quit and quitters never win”, this is an absolute truth. To be a winner in this life with today’s challenges, one must have a strong will, unmovable, unshakable in one’s resolve to be a success in whatever endeavour one may chose.

In my own experience I have observed that people who have never experienced difficulties in their lives, tend to be succeptible to adverse conditions when ever and if ever they occur in their lives. They give up easily because their very comfortable world has been up-rooted, most of them never recover from these adverse conditions, choosing rather to succumb to their environment or worse, to end their lives.

To develop a strong will, there are three character traits that one must possess.

1. Commitment.

A person must become committed to the task or tasks ahead if he/she intends to be successful at any challenge, and there might be many. If one is not committed to the task it makes no sense to even begin because you will quit at the first sign of trouble. Your level of commitment determines your ability to “stick around” in the tough times.

Be committed to the task and your decision to play a meaningful roll in the accomplishment of the goal and you are on your way to becoming a winner.

2. Remain Focused.

Distractions come in many forms and types, if one is easily distracted then that person is setting himself/herself up for a fall sooner than one may imagine.
In thoroughbred racing an equipment called a “blinker” or sometimes a “visor” is placed over the horse’s head, its sole purpose is to keep his attention on the path ahead of him, to get him to the finish line, in front of the other horses in the race. He must not be distracted by what the other horses are doing.

We must adopt the same “equipment” or principle in our endeavours to remain focused on the goal, thereby accomplishing what we set out to do.

3. A Calm Disposition.

Calmness of mind is extremely essential as it allows for the effective use of ones energy. A person who is not easily disturbed by the things around, the distractions, the negative personalities, the environment, circumstances, the media etc, has mastered himself. This person will never be in reaction mode because he has learned that he/she is the creator of circumstances.
With this calm disposition, ideas begin to flow, solutions to problems are realised and challenge after challenge are subdued.

These are just a few of the fruits of the strong will.

I welcome your comments.

250120070011THE MINDSET

So what is this “mindset” that everyone is talking about? It seems to me to be a word that is being used more frequently in today’s society, all over the world, or is it just another cliche?  what is it? does this “right mindset” have a description?

As a result of my observation and study, I have come to the understanding that a person’s “Mindset” is an indication of future success or failure.

Henry Ford once  said that “whether a person thinks he can or he can’t he is right. ” Now there was an individual with the right mindset. He would never accept defeat, the word “impossible” was not in his vocabulary, hence he was able to accomplish what most men would not even attempt to dream about.

Mindset Ingredients

In order to have this right mindset, three things have to be in the mix.

1. Ground yourself in the fact that you will accomplish what you desire.

2. You must be willing to “pay the price” to accomplish your desire.

3. See yourself as already having accomplished your desire.

The first ingredient pertains to having the knowledge that come “hell or high water” you will succeed. Whatever it is that you truly want in your life be it personal, physical, emotional or spiritual, you must and will attain it.  Removing all doubt and fear from within and focusing all your energy on the prize. Having the faith which is the substance of things not seen and the evidence of things to come, in your God given ability to be, do and have all that you want to be, do and have. Know that YOU create your own circumstances, as Napoleon Bonapart rightly said “circumstance, I create them”.
The second ingredient involves being willing to do not just your best, but whatever is required, ethically, to succeed. You may need to find the right people who can assist you in accomplishing your dream, find them, you will be led to them. This is one of the “secrets” in the Law Of Attraction.

It is more than just “thinking” of something and believing it will come to you automatically. There is some “doing” involved and when you begin to do what is required of you, then the people who can assist you and guide you into the path of your success will suddenly come into your life. This is an absolute truth as it has happened to me time and time again, and each time I am amazed at the outcome.

You may also have to remove yourself from the company of negative individuals, whether they are friends or family members, which may make it even more difficult but that is a part of the “price” you must pay.

Negative and positive energy can never and will never coexist. You must find yourself in the company of like minded individuals who can brainstorm with you ideas that come to you, these people will be your mastermind group. If you surround yourself with negative thinking people they will “suck” the life out of you and lead you into a depressed state, you then become as negative as they are, they are poison to your bones so remove yourself from their atmosphere, immediately.

The third ingredient involves “seeing” yourself as already having, doing or becoming whatever it is that you want. You must be able to see yourself achieving your goals, feel it, smell it, taste it and begin to “live it”.

Visualize your triumph with passion. If you need help, get pictures of the things you want to have, cut them out and create a “vision board” and keep it close to your work station or someplace that you can easily and readily see it.

Your intention must be clear as this will solidify your goals. Write them down and begin to take the necessary steps to accomplish each goal. This may probably be one of the more difficult aspects of the whole process as you will need to have a “pit bull” tenacity to stick to the process, this is the “mindset” which I call your level of “stick-to-it-tive-ness” where the rubber meets the metal.

Your actions may be slow, but they must be deliberate, no matter how small they are, stay the course. Keep your goal in front of you, if you run into an obstacle, refine and re-define your action steps and act accordingly.

Falling does not make one a failure, it is one’s failure to get up from a fall, that makes him/her a failure.

I hope these few words make some sort of sense, to someone.

I welcome your comments.

Dean Wong.
