The dream for us
Tony (fictional character) work very hard to get to where he is now. He is living in a luxury home, driving the latest fancy car which a lot of people are so envied (jealous) of. But he does not put on the air to show that he is some rich jerk.
That is like a dream for us and all we can do is to complain and comment about his lifestyle.
There are people who hope he will fail and go back to his toughest day because they felt unbalanced.
We have friends who worked very hard as well. Though they are not a boss of their own, but they are in the higher management drawing the good sum of money every month.
Again, there are people who also hope that they will fail.
There are too many narrow-minded people who wanted success people to fail. It seems like they are not allowed to be where they are and only they can be succeeded. It seems like “what comes around, goes around”. It is a cycle that cannot be a break.
Putting effort to hold
It is easy to cycle down the slope than to cycle up to the top you wanted.
Every energy, strength and sweats you put in, allow you to get nearer the goal. The satisfaction is so hard to describe because you will be jumping with joy.
It is not easy to cycle up the slope easily. So long as you keep fighting on and push your every single step, you will get there in no time. (It does not matter if you are taking your own sweet time)
So long as you keep fighting on and push your every single step, you will get there in no time.
It is important not to give up.
When you are at the peak of business or fame, remember to listen to advises and don’t act like a hooligan and do whatever you think it is fine. There are too many pictures to see in a big frame.
There are series of concern to take care of as not to form a chain reaction that might pull down what you had just built through your hard work.
But, who will be the people in fame when they are not in business?
E.g. Youtuber, artists, producer, singer, blogger, photographer etc… There are so many of them that you can ever imagine. Every job has its own fame.
Hold up your reputation so that you can earn the respect from fellow fans.
I had seen people raising to the top and got hurt badly while cycling down the slope too fast because they are over confident about where they are now.
They have forgotten how they went through and treat others like garbage as if they are at the top of the world putting on airs. In no time, you will lose a lot of respect and you be falling down quickly until no one will bother about you anymore.
If you want to be like Tony, it is important to stay humble so that you will reduce the number of haters. There is no way to prevent people saying you, or wanted you to go down to dirt. But there are ways to allow people to like you instead.
Everyone wants to succeed in life.
One must learn to help one another.
Stay positive, focus and humble.
When my mobile data burst, it had brought me back to the past when there is no data on our phone, not even GPRS (General Packet Radio Service). All we had is just a pager, during that time we were crazy over numeric forming as letters to alphanumeric and to voicemail messages.
There isn’t a time or way where we can get the latest news on mobile, let alone the hype on Pokemon Go now.
Since I am unable to switch on my data due to my own negligence by watching YouTube using my mobile internet rather than WiFi while at home, I have to limit myself and save for the remaining of 200mb for the emergency usage. I have 2 weeks left for the new month to start for my data plan to revert back to 3Gb usage.
Without the internet on mobile, do I feel lost and insecure because I simply cannot get the latest updates from social media, news and etc.
I move around freely with my head looking straight rather than tilting down like I am one of those walking dead. *chuckles*
It allows me to look at my surrounding clearer than before because my focus is not on the phone most of the time.
Was it a good thing?
Don’t you think it is good to be disconnected from the internet once a while? Let’s not talk about the period when you are working or doing something serious till we forgotten to check the phone.
What I meant was the time when we head out together until the time when we are home. The only time to have the connection is via home or the place where free WiFi is available. Nothing else. It looks like I can go out without my phone at all.
Love to observe people
I love to observe people. That had been in me for the longest time ever. What they do, react, talk or behave got me interested.
I happened to witness a commotion of the coffee shop lady boss almost wanted to pick a fight with the officers while I was queuing up for food. If I didn’t continue to see the aftermath, I thought the lady boss is just being difficult to the officials. Apparently, she was trying to explain further in details with her loud voice.
Meanwhile, I also discover another food stall which I never patronise selling one of my favourite food!
If I continue to be like a ‘walker’ (just a joke), I will think the lady boss is a bitch and never know that the food stall selling my yummy food.
Stay connected with our family members
How many of us will stand still observe people without doing anything at all? Perhaps old people who do not intend to have any internet until they are home with WiFi.
No doubt we must stay connected to the internet because of workload and update the social media feed if you are an influencer or etc… But it is good to get disconnected during a weekend and stay connected with our family members and friends.
These are the times where we do not require the internet to get closer to each other.
Truthfully, I feel more comfortable without looking at my mobile regularly. When my mobile data burst, I do not panic but made do what I had missed usually? Of course, the only connection I have is SMS and calling on phone.
Morning does not seem the same
This is an unusual morning. The sky is dark grey, the fog started to draw in and every minute looking out from the window, the visibility is getting shorter and shorter.
The usual routine had changed and you started to get worried.
What happened if you kick on the rock which you had been avoiding it for years?
You know there is a slope along the pathway, but will this fog lead you to death by falling down?
Despite the change of weather and lots of concern in mind, you still have to go out and get the marketing done.
The journey is very long. It will take nearly 30min to get to the marketplace by walking, and 10 min by car.
This is an extremely dangerous situation and you cannot afford to fall off down with the car because of the thick fog.
No one can guarantee
Safety comes first.
In your mind, the choice appears: Either wait for the fog to clear off first, or go forward with it but extremely careful with every step you take.
No one can guarantee the safety except yourself. To risk or not to is in your own hand.
If you are able to see a partial of the route in front with the dim light, it means you have confident to walk forward.
Cross road in life
This type of scenario is just like we having a mid-life crisis. Whether we are going to change a new environment or staying on to be comfortable, no one but yourself knows the answer.
The initial thought in your best answer. (You got to find times to recall that very moment)
There are a lot of cons and pros, balance and benefits that we should look at. But, are these the main reasons?
Eventually, it is still in our mind. Do we love what we are doing?
We often heard people complaining what they are doing, but they do not take an action at all – changing a job or do something they prefer. But they still bite on and carry on with their displeasure.
Instead of seeing them happily, they are constantly grumbling of life.
Our friends will often advise not to go for passion because there are so many negative points.
Passion made us wanted to do more and stay very focused; one of my friend whom I just did the photo shoot told me the same thing.
Without passion, it can’t bring what you are and what you love dearly.
Do not slog through your work for something that you really dislike.
If you are unable to do so, always consider as a hobby that keeps you moving until the day arrive.
I did a PassionTest before and I am glad that I know what I want to do and did not have any regret in my life. All good things wil come later.
There is a will, there is a way
If you do not wish walk through the dark and foggy area, then no one can guide you what to do. Your wish is to be comfortable, so don’t keep having negative thoughts on why you are still in this line and not something you prefer.
If there is a will, there is a way.
By not moving forwards does not mean you are wrong.
In fact, there are neither a right nor wrong decision. The only bad mistake will be regret.
Whatever the choice you had made, do not feel regret.
Instead of having 2nd thoughts or regretted your decision, why not put your full effort and do it better?
Despite numerous failure, one day you will make it.
All you need is support from your loved ones, not the friends who often pull you down.
