NLP SINGAPORE – I ESCAPED DEATH 3 TIMES

Posted by on Jul 7, 2010 in Inspirational Stories | 0 comments

Hi Friends

Have you ever encounter some events in your life that totally changed your perspective of life, how you see things, and how you see people?

Let me share with you 3 short stories of how I escaped death 3 times:

Story 1

I was a student then in a local university, National University of Singapore (NUS). It all started when I have severe right pain on my right sole. The pain got worse and I have problem walking. I saw a bone specialist in NUH (National University Hospital) and a couple of white spots were found in the X-ray of my right foot. The doctor said that it could simply be nothing or it could be life threatening. To ease the pain, one of the nurses uses a spray to freeze the skin of my right foot and inject me with some medicine to ease the pain. I would have fare better without the injection, I started limping. After more tests and X-ray, the doctor draw conclusion that it was not life-threatening. I was only in my early 20s.

Story 2

A couple of months later, I remembered clearly that it was a cold day after a heavy shower. I was standing at a cross-junction outside Lakeside MRT Station, on my way to work in the evening after the day classes in NUS (I was studying full-time and working part-time). While waiting for the ‘Green Man’ to appear, something extremely hard hit me. It felt like someone has used a brick to hit my head. It took me a few seconds to gain consciousness. By the time I was aware of what’s going on, blood started to flow down my cheek. I looked around and saw a skidded motorcycle where the rider, as well as the pillion rider, were lying on the floor bleeding too. I fainted and by the time I gained consciousness, I was lying in an ambulance, staring blankly at the ventilating fan on the ceiling while listening to some beeping tone from a device which tracks my heartbeat. My neck was tightly fitted with a neck brace. I asked the medical officer what has happened. He said I might have been knocked down by a skidded motorcycle which has gone up the footpath. I might have been luckier if I buy Toto. The journey to the hospital seems like a long time with flashbacks running through my mind when I was young and I caught myself asking myself whether am I going to die in my early 20s? I ended up in Alexandra Hospital and I was monitored for the next 48 hours. The doctor was concerned that if I vomit within the next 48 hours, it means that there is internal bleeding in my brain and I will have to go through surgery to remove the blood clot. X-ray showed nothing and there was no signs of any crack on my skull. I survived the next 48 hours.

Story 3

It happened a couple of days ago when there were some symptoms that something was wrong with my urinary system. I went online and started to search for information. There were 3 possibilities: infection, kidney stones or cancer. I went to see a doctor and got an X-ray immediately. While waiting for the diagnostic report to be out, the doctor prescribed some antibiotics. While waiting for the report to be out, I suddenly felt that I should get some things in order if the worst happens – get a will written up. My days are as usual then – working and spending time with family. As you are reading this, I have just obtained the medical report. It was an infection and I have to be put on another course of antibiotics. Phew! One thing for sure, my will has to be written.

My father has died due to stroke and heart attack while my mum died because of terminal stage lung cancer. I have no wish to die young. My girl is only 2.5 years old and I wanted to watch her grow up. There are so much things meaningful to do in life. I do not wish to go to heaven yet. As Steve Jobs from Apple has said during his Commencement Speech in Stanford University, ‘Everyone wants to go to heaven. But no one wants to die to get there.”

So what has it got to do with NLP?

Ask yourself this question, do you have friends who like to complain about life and what they do not have? Or do you have such challenges?

The moment you have discovered what you are here for and what’s your purpose in life, life becomes meaningful. That’s when your behaviour will totally be changed and thus your destiny.

Have a great week and LIFE!

NLP SINGAPORE – WINNERS PERSIST & PERSEVERE

Posted by on Jul 2, 2010 in Inspirational Stories, NLP Success & Life Tips, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Hi Friends

A couple of days ago, I went to a local bookstore that sells personal books, bought more than $600 worth of books and asked for an old copy of ‘Success’ Magazine for free. The magazine is dated Jun/Jul 2008 with the title ’50 Greatest Entrepreneurs of All Time’ plus an interesting article about Paul J. Meyer. There was one article that Paul J. Meyer wrote titled ‘What It takes To Be a Winner’. It was a fascinating article for me because Paul walks the talk. When he was age 25, he build the largest insurance agency in North America recruiting more than 800 agents in 12 months. For the last 50 years, he has earned the about US$20 – US$50 million per year. 2 principles that he has used in his life was these:

1)       Winners are willing to pay the price of success

2)      Winners persist and persevere

Just to share that my little dream of publishing a book will be realised within the next 1  month. See book cover below:

I always have a vision of my 1st book being placed on the bookshelves of all major bookstores such as Popular, Times, MPH, Borders, Kinokuniya, etc. In addition, I have a vision where the book will be placed on the Best Selling rack of Popular Bookstores and I am sure it will come true. Publishing of this book was difficult right from the start as I need to look for business owners who want to sponsor the publication such that ALL the sales proceeds go to Straits Times School Pocket Fund. Initially, to attract these people, I started using the Internet to save cost. No one responded for a couple of months. I changed strategies and conducted Social Media Marketing Workshops to attract business owners. Wrong people came. They are here to look-see-look-see or they are mainly employees. I changed the ad that I have placed targeting only business owners. The crowd that came for my workshop dropped to a low level but at least more self-employed or business owners appeared. Took me about 4 months just to attract close to 20 business owners. Subsequent challenges set in when some sponsors wanted changes several times, this put me in a tight spot several times between my business partners and the sponsors as expectations were different. We managed to accommodate the differences and moved forward. Then comes to the design phase where more work needs to be done in terms of communication. A few days ago when I have told the Printing Company to start printing the book, our distributor shared that I might be infringing the copyright of other people because I used their quotes. I have to quickly asked the printing company to stop printing and with a friend’s friend who is a lawyer specialising in Intellectual Property. Fortunately, this lawyer said that using famous people’s quote does not constitute copyright infringement. That’s when I could sleep and told the printing company to continue to print. From the onset of the idea of this book until now, it took me more than 1 year to sort things out and overcome challenges. I am glad that I am almost at the end part of this race.

I target the books to be out by mid Jul and subsequently distributed to major bookstores by National Day. It’s the day that I have specially picked. The part that I am most proud of for this book is that ALL the sales proceeds will be donated to the Straits Times School Pocket Fund where the fund is is used to help poor students who do not have pocket money to eat or to go to school. I target the amount to be more than S$12,000.

It does not take a super rich person to do good or help others, it just takes a person with a heart. It does not take a Superman to overcome tough obstacles, it just takes a person who are willing to pay the price of success, persist and persevere.

Have a great weekend!
