Hi Friends

Last week, I have written about Part 1 of our 3-part series. Now it’s our 2nd instalment.

Here are 5 more.

1. SIR RICHARD BRANSON

This man needs no introduction. But there are a few things that you may not know about Branson:

(i) He suffered from Dyslexia – Wikipedia defines Dyslexia as someone who is “characterized by difficulty with learning to read fluently and with accurate comprehension despite normal intelligence”

(ii) He cried when he had 1 more billion dollars – I would probably be slapping myself to make sure that it wasn’t a dream but Branson cried. Why? At the 40th celebration of Virgin Records, Branson sold the record label more than 20 years ago for $1 billion. He cried because he felt as though he was selling his baby for money. ”Of course, it was very hard – it’s like selling your children,” Branson said in an interview with Reuters. “I mean, you build something from scratch, we had just signed Janet Jackson, we had just signed the Rolling Stones when we sold it, and I remember running down Ladbroke Grove, tears streaming down my face with the check for a billion dollars.” Subsequently years after, he used the money to build one of the world’s commercial space travel company called Virgin Galactic making space travel a reality for me and you (provided you have US$250,000 to spare to buy 1 ticket). ”We wouldn’t be building spaceships today if it hadn’t been for that (sale) so it was the right decision,” Branson told Reuters.

(iii) Virgin Airline started on a Blackboard – During a conference in August 2013, Branson recounted how he started Virgin Airline:

“I was in my late twenties, so I had a business, but nobody knew who I was at the time. I was headed to the Virgin Islands and I had a very pretty girl waiting for me, so I was determined to get there on time. At the airport, my final flight to the Virgin Islands was cancelled because of maintenance or something. It was the last flight out that night. I thought this was ridiculous, so I went and chartered a private airplane to take me to the Virgin Islands, which I did not have the money to do. Then, I picked up a small blackboard, wrote “Virgin Airlines. $29.” on it, and went over to the group of people who had been on the flight that was cancelled. I sold tickets for the rest of the seats on the plane, used their money to pay for the chartered plane, and we all went to the Virgin Islands that night.

Now you know the size of Branson’s mindset.

So what have I learnt from Branson?

Belief to Embrace: “Dream big by setting yourself seemingly impossible challenges. You will then have to catch up with them” ~ Sir Richard Branson.

2) ELON MUSK

Who is this man any way? I have first heard about this guy (how dare I use the phrase “this guy”) when I attended a workshop in KL. I did some research and I found this guy absolutely amazing. Can you believe that he wants to put man onto Mars? Elon Musk is an engineer and entrepreneur who had co-founded PayPal and currently drives strategy, development and design at two companies he created, Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) and Tesla Motors, and oversees a third company, SolarCity, which he co-founded. He led SpaceX’s efforts to be the first private company to successfully launch and dock a spacecraft with the international space station.

Please watch this video below to really really know who is Elon Musk.

I have always heard people talking about “Thinking Big” but what’s really “Thinking Big”. I got to realized what “Thinking Big” was when I saw this quote by Elon Musk:

elon-musk-quote

Belief to Embrace: “The first step is to establish that something is possible; then probability will occur.” ~ Elon Musk.

3. ESTEE LAUDER (1908 – 2004)

If you are a lady reading this post, you would have heard this name which is synonymous with cosmetics. The company began in 1946 when Joseph Lauder and his wife Estée Lauder (Josephine Esther Mentzer) began producing cosmetics in New York City. She has been known to love her company so much that she wants to do everything herself. Starting from skin creams created by her chemist uncle, she sold  them at beauty shops and resorts until the establishment of their first department store account with Sakd Fith Avenue in New York. Estée Lauder’s Clinique brand became the first women’s cosmetic company to introduce a second line for men when, in 1976, they began a separate line called “Skin Supplies for Men”, which continues to be sold at Clinique counters worldwide.

Estee Lauder.

Beliefs to Embrace: ”I didn’t get there by wishing for it or hoping for it, but by working for it.” ~ Estée Lauder

4. Milton Hershey (1857 – 1945)

Milton Hershey

At the age of 14, Hershey, who had dropped out of school the year before, expressed an interest in candy making and began apprenticing with a master confectioner in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Four years later, Hershey borrowed $150 from his aunt and set up his own candy shop in the heart of Philadelphia. Despite working hard for 5 years, unfortunately, things did not work out. He has to closed his shop and he went to Denver to search for his dad. It’s also in Denver that he work with a confectioner and he discovered caramel and how fresh milk could be used to make it. But he wasn’t happy to work for someone. He decided to gave it another shot again in Chicago and later in New York City, but both venture failed. In 1883, he returned to Lancaster and, still convinced he could build a successful candy company, started the Lancaster Caramel Company. He later started Hershey Chocolate Company. Fast forward, Hershey’s winning ideas included the Hershey Kiss in 1907, which the company’s founder named himself. The trademark foil wrapper was added in 1924.

I love his story. Watch Part 1 of this story here:

You can watch the rest of his documentary in YouTube by searching for his name.

I love one of his quotes to know how philanthropic he was:

Beliefs to Embrace: “If I ever become rich, I am going to use my money to build schools to give every boy and girl an opportunity to get an education.”  ~ Milton Hershey

5. Levi Strauss (1829 – 1902) 

Levi-Strauss

Yes, the above man is the Founder of Levi’s. He may not looked as cool as Levi’s jeans but he sure is a man that you can learn a lot from.

In 1853, the California gold rush was in full swing, and everyday items were in short supply. Levi Strauss, a 24-year-old German immigrant, left for San Francisco with a small supply of dry goods. After his arrival, a prospector wanted to know what Mr. Levi Strauss was selling. When Strauss told him he had rough canvas to use for tents and wagon covers, the prospector said, “You should have brought pants!,” saying he couldn’t find a pair of pants strong enough to last.

Levi Strauss eventually use the canvas and made them into waist overalls. But the miners complained that they tended to chafe. Levi Strauss then replaced a twilled cotton cloth from France called “serge de Nimes.” The fabric later became known as denim and the pants were nicknamed blue jeans. In 1873, Levi Strauss & Company began using the pocket stitch design. Levi Strauss and a Reno Nevada-based Latvian tailor by the name of Jacob Davis co-patented the process of putting rivets in pants for strength. On May 20, 1873, they received a patent. This date is now considered the official birthday of “blue jeans.”

This is the story of Levi Strauss:


Belief to Embrace: “The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, he’s one who asks the right questions.” ~ Levi Strauss.

Every time I write something, I have learnt something. What have you learnt today?

NLP SINGAPORE – GREATEST ENTREPRENEURS OF ALL TIMES & WHAT WE CAN LEARN FROM THEM (PART 1 OF 3)

Posted by on Jan 20, 2014 in Inspirational Stories | 0 comments

Hi Friends

In our previous article on NLP Beliefs, we mentioned that beliefs shape the way we behave and thus our results and our lives. In this 1st part of a 3-part series, I will talk about numerous Successful Entrepreneurs, what they think about and believe in that we can model after.

Let me list down some of my favourite entrepreneurs :

1.       GEORGE LUCAS

“May the Force be with you”. If you have not heard before this guy, you would probably have heard movies such as Star Wars and characters such as Han Solo, Luke Sky Walker and Darth Vader and the famous music called Imperial March.  Or you may even watched the movie series called Indiana Jones. Lucas first started this own company called ‘Industrial Light and Magic’. The smart thing that he did was to obtain the merchandising rights after the success of ‘Star Wars’. Since 1977, various toys, action figures, sound track, etc., made up about US$13.5 billion of memorabilia sales. In addition to business, he also created George Lucas Educational Foundation in the early 1990s.

Belief to Embrace: “No! Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.” ― George Lucas.

Lucas

2.       Walt Disney (1901 – 1966)

Every successful entrepreneur has their fair share of challenges and you probably did not know that Walt Disney has declared bankruptcy before in 1923 when his company was burdened with debt. Despite that, Disney and his brother, Roy, started Disney Brothers’ Studio. Their first deal was for distributor Margaret Winkler to distribute their ‘Alice’ cartoons. However, years later, Disney discovered that Winkler and her husband, Charles Mintz, had stolen the rights to Oswald, along with all of Disney’s animators. Disney and his team quickly produced three cartoons featuring a new character Walt had been developing called Mickey Mouse. As there was no sound for their earlier short films, they failed to find distribution. When sound technology became available, Walt used his own voice as Mickey Mouse and the cartoon became an instant hit. The rest is history.

Belief to Embrace:  “If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse.” ~ Walt Disney.

Disney

3.       Ray Kroc (1902 – 1984)

Macdonald’s is the world largest chain if fast-food restaurants serving more than 54 million customers daily. It’s the most famous successful stories ever told in American Business History. Kroc started his career as a salesman selling Prince Castle Multi-mixer and even though his sales were not doing well in one period of time, he remembered Macdonald Brothers who had purchased 8 of such mixers from him. After doing his research, Kroc opened his first franchise Macdonald’s in Illinois. His franchise did extremely well, and he franchised more restaurants. Fortunately and unfortunately, Macdonald Brothers have no ambition to expand their business. In the end, Kroc paid Macdonald Brothers US$2.7 million, and implementing automation and strict preparation standards that helped make McDonald’s the world’s largest restaurant franchise before his death in 1984, at the age of 81.

Belief to Embrace: “Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get” ~ Ray Kroc.

Kroc

 

  1. 4.       Harland Sanders (1890 – 1980)

Sanders lie changed when his father passed away in 1895. The young Sanders has no choice but to look after and cook for his siblings. Sanders had worked in various jobs such as a fireman, insurance salesman and running filling stations. He began selling fried chicken from his roadside restaurant in Corbin, Kentucky, during the Great Depression. At age 40, the Shell Oil Company offered Sanders a service station in Kentucky rent free, where he would also feed hungry travellers.Sanders began to cook chicken dishes and other meals such as country ham and steaks for customers.Since he did not have a restaurant, he served customers in his adjacent living quarters. Sanders eventually moved his operation to a restaurant across the street, and featured a fried chicken so notable that he was named a Kentucky colonel in 1935 by Governor Ruby Laffoon. Sanders was diagnosed with leukemia in June 1980.He died in Louisville, Kentucky of pneumonia on December 16, 1980.

Belief to Embrace:  “One has to remember that every failure can be a stepping-stone to something better” ~ Colonel Harland Sanders.

Colonel-Sanders

5.       Asa Griggs Candler (1851 – 1929)

What comes to your mind when you think of Colas?

Invented by pharmacists John Pemberton by mixing little tonic syrup with water and baking soda, Candler saw a great opportunity – bottled the individual drink for individual sale. In 1891, Candler had purchased the entire company for just $2,300, the equivalent of about $54,400 today. Candler was a great marketer who strongly believes in advertising. Under Candler’s management, Coca-Cola’s advertising budget grew from $100,000 in 1901 to $1 million in 1911. The Coca-Cola name was plastered on everything. In order to protect the integrity of the brand, Candler took serious action on those who copied Coca Cola. The secret formula for Coca-Cola reportedly resides in a vault in an Atlanta bank and, in 2006, a scheme to sell company secrets to Pepsi landed three employees in jail.

Belief to Embrace:  “Every human life is made to fit some place, and there us a place for every life” ~ Asa Candler.

NLP SINGAPORE – 10 THINGS YOU CAN DO TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE IN 2014

Posted by on Jan 17, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Hi Friends

When I was a little boy, I have always heard people around me talking about setting New Year Resolution. The interesting phenomenon is that a year after setting New Year Resolution, somehow, things did not change much. Why is that so? Most of the people that I know will shove the New Year Resolution aside after setting and totally forgot about it. So some of the key things you need to DO to make sure that things get DONE is to TAKE MASSIVE ACTION  once your goals are set.

So what are some of the AMAZING THINGS that you can do for yourself this year? Check out this list:

1.       Review your Achievements for the past year

As you look back last year, list down the top 3 things that you have done well and then reward yourself. Also list down the top 3 things that you felt it could have been better. Ask yourself are there any things that you have learnt where it can make you a better person. In NLP, if you are able to gather some positive learning from any negative experiences that you have, in fact, you are applying a tool in NLP called Reframing.

2.       Fulfill at least one of your Dreams

If there is 1 dream that can be achieved this year, what will they be? Put in your best effort this year and achieve them. There were a couple of my dreams that were fulfilled last year:

(i)                  Brought my family to Hokkaido & Disneyland

(ii)                Met Sir Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin Group with a Networth of US$46 Billion (see picture below)

(iii)              Met Warren Buffett, Richest Investor on Forbes List with a Networth of US$58.5 Billion

(iv)              Met Zhang Zuo Lei, Billionaire Businessman from China

(iv)              Build strong working relationship with Richard Tan, CEO of Success Resources Pte Ltd, the largest event organizer in the world

(iv)              Meeting Professor Bruce Greenwald in Columbia University, etc

Find those that are FUN to do!

3.       Tell your love ones “I love you”

If there are 3 people that you are absolutely grateful for who have made a difference in your life, who will these people be? Assuming that they are still around and you have always wanted to tell them something important, tell them!  I remembered I have a NLP Graduate who loved her mum so much but she has always procrastinated to tell her how much she loved her mum. Eventually she took up the courage to do it and she felt phenomenal! Her article is available here: http://www.nlpinsingapore.com/inspiration-story/nlp-singapore-the-hug

4.       Exercise

“Take care of your body. It’s the only you have to live” ~ Jim Rohn. I came across this quote when I visited an exhibition called Body World in New York. It really gave me a fresh perspective of life. Most of the people finds exercising tiring and tough to do. I share similar experiences. So what I did was simply to do something that I like – Brisk Walk with an pipe-in music from iPhone & weight training in front of the TV. Recently, I have shifted to a place where it’s a few minutes walk from West Coast Park. It’s really Beautiful during the day and night. That further motivates me to exercise. You may like to play basketball, golf or any sports that give a great workout. Just DO it!

5.       Read

Recently I have just shifted my house and I realized that I really got of tons of books that I have bought but not read yet. If you have any books that you have but not read them, read one this year. If you are very busy in your life and find completing reading a book a hassle, read articles instead. Personally, I love to read posting by Sir Richard Branson in his personal Blog as well as summarised biographies at www.biography.com.

6.       Remove negative people in your life

One of my favourite quotes was “Surround yourself with people that will lift you higher” by Oprah Winfrey. I have always love hanging out with positive people and people who will support your dreams and goals in my life. They bring energy, encouragement, support and warmth into my life. If you have any people in your life that is taking most of the energy out of you, vanish them from your universe or you vanish yourself from their universe. You will be happier.

7.       Have FUN and DO something crazy!

Life is short! If you have always wanted to do something crazy and outrageous (assuming that it’s legal and ethical), DO it! A couple weeks ago, my company launched our 1st investment book called “Invest Lah!” and I dressed myself up as a Cash Cow Mascot. We had SO MUCH FUN in our launch. Watch video below. So is there something that you have always wanted to do but did not have a chance, Screw it Just Do it! You may also learn HOW TO INVEST in an EXTREMELY FUN way by clicking Mind Kinesis Value Investing Academy.

8.       Help someone

Since my encounter with Kidney Cancer, it has changed the way how I look at life. I have been organising small charity events or participating in such events since 2010. The most memorable one is when I brought the patients from Hospice Care Association for a day trip at Gardens by the Bay and I almost cried at the end of the event. It was a meaningful one. For this year, I will be organising another one. If you decide to help someone but do not have time, you don’t have to organise anything. Just volunteer yourself for the day, or if you see any people who are handicapped in some ways and are selling tissue paper, buy a few packs from them and chat with them. You will be surprise what you can learn from them about life.

9.       Show Gratitude to your friends and/or colleagues

I remembered years ago when I was working in a public listed company, I have to managed a few hundred staffs. It was pretty challenging to motivate them. Having said that, I came out with an idea one day – give candies to my female staffs. As my staffs are predominantly male and are in large numbers, I have decided to give thanks starting from a small group which are the female staffs. On the eve of Valentine’s Day, I personally packed about 30 packs for the female staffs. When they came to work on that day, my staff gave every single lady staff the packed candy and said “Happy Valentine’s Day!”. Guessed what happened? One lady staff entered my office and said that for the past 25 years, I am the only manager that has showed appreciation for the years of effort of my staff. After she spoke to me, she went out and shared to her colleagues how happy she was.

Ask yourself this – Do you have any friends or colleagues that have helped you previously and you have no chance to thank them? Give them a surprise. It can be a handwritten note, a small and cute gift, etc.

Gratitude-Rock

10.   Look at the Stars, the Sky, the Trees, the Sea

Visit any places of nature and be part of it. We spent so much time working, working and working and we should give ourselves a break and be with nature. Go to the nearest beach and enjoy the sun, sand and the sea. Lie down somewhere and enjoy the stars or the sky or the clouds. Admire how beautiful the nature is, paying attention to the sound of nature and remember how it feels!

NLP SINGAPORE – “LIFE PURPOSE – Transforming Lives, Transforming Self”

Posted by on Dec 12, 2013 in Inspirational Stories, NLP Success & Life Tips | 0 comments

Hi Friends

I was in Penang International Airport last month waiting for a plane to come back home when I saw this posting. It will be the GREATEST Present that I have ever received for this year!

Janet Testimonial Part 1

Janet Testimonial Part 2Janet Testimonial Part 3

FULL TEXT BELOW:

<<So many of us go through life without knowing what to do, without a purpose, or maybe having a dream but never finding time to fulfill these dreams. Most will easily come up with reasons for not doing so. However, you’ve really never lived life till you lived it purposefully. Once you discover or rediscover your life purpose, that’s your compass, bearing direction in your choices in life. You do things that are aligned with your purpose and you know when to let go of certain time occupiers that do not serve that purpose. The ONE most critical training I attended my entire life is the NLP course by an ex-colleague and now friend and mentor, Cayden Chang.

Even though I had known for some time what my life mission is, I never really took it seriously, just floating along, got sidetracked, mixed with wrong company that got me so high and dry on some hollow friendship, and made a terrible life mistake that thrusted me into depression and felt that life wasn’t worth living. On the outside, I was wearing a facade of happiness, bubbly and friendly. Deep inside, I was hurting badly and felt I was living just so my loved ones do not have to grief. When Cayden first asked the class what we would want to do if we knew we only had a few weeks, days or months to live. I told the class there was nothing I’d do as I was ready to go. By Day 6 of NLP, this had changed.

At the NLP basic practitioner training and later master practitioner training, I rediscovered my life purpose. Untangled myself from the negative people that I got involved with, cleared my negative emotions and guilt, integrated a conflict that I had held with regard to making money whilst doing charity, learned and explored strategies for self life coaching and facing up to an unavoidable extended family member who’d been mentally abusing me for close to 20 years. Through it all, I completed my master’s degree and though I got nominated for two awards (based on research excellence and GPA) but didn’t win any, I emerged a winner. I’ve won over the demons in me: fear, conceitedness, procrastination, insecurity, negativity, etc. The list can go on and on. Other than my supportive husband who is always the buoy that keeps me afloat, NLP training at the NLP Singapore – Mind Kinesis NLP Academy is the lifeline thrown to me, the one that got me ashore. Borrowing the lyrics from the song ‘Passion’, the purpose (future) before me, the past behind me, there’s no turning back.

With NLP, I’ve opened the door for myself to a community of positive, supportive and encouraging NLP practitioner friends. I’ve also gone on to attend another training in Value Investing (VI) by Cayden’s company and started investing and earning passive income. Every now and then, in Facebook, these two communities of practitioners (NLP and VI) will “nudge” me on my dreams and my life purpose, with their reflections, announcements and sharing of their achievements of the various milestones and life goals. This sharing by Cayden below is one of them. Life is constantly throwing us the unexpected, the unpleasant,  the irksome somebody or some events. I can’t stop these from coming. But I am now better, much better equipped with the resources and community of support to face these. Unconsciously, I’m also starting to be more reflective, something I deem a positive transformation in me. Of course, NLP is not the panacea to all downs in life. It doesn’t mean I will never ever cry, fear, procrastinate, make mistakes or fail. Like what my best friend and sis-in-Christ Dorothy said, I am still the sinner, but a saved sinner. I am still the fallible human, but a more resourceful human, with the necessary mental resources to cope with the spectrum of life experiences.That is why I always have Cayden (who survived renal cancer in 2010) in my prayer. His work is transforming people’s lives. I sincerely hope he can continue to transform many more lives. And this all started with Cayden himself having the life purpose to motivate and empower people to reach their destiny.

NLP SINGAPORE – LEARNATHON 2013

Posted by on Dec 3, 2013 in Inspirational Stories | 0 comments

Hi Friends

It was a wonderful evening yesterday (2/12/2013) at Learnathon 2013.

I just wish to share with you some of my LEARNING LESSONS:

1) HAPPINESS – by 11pm, there weren’t many people left in the auditorium but we continued with the programme to sing “We are the World”. Even though not many people were there to cheer, the remaining audience was awesome – they sing with us. This is the moment where I felt that the effort was well well worth it.

DS7W5943

2) MEETING A BUSINESS ROLE MODEL, Ms ELIM CHEW – Just in case you do not know who she is. Ms Elim Chew  is the founder of the street wear brand, 77th Street. She co-founded Singapore Street Festival – a platform for showcasing local talents in areas such as performing arts, visual art forms, fashion, entertainment and sports, The Young Entrepreneur Mastery (TYEM) – a non-profit academy that supported youth entrepreneurship and inculcated an entrepreneurial mindset in out-of-school youths. Elim was also a founding member and director of the Social Innovation Park (SIP), a social enterprise incubator which aimed to provide a replicable set of integrated services and resources that would help create a platform to support social entrepreneurs’ business models that advocated societal change. Through this platform, she championed Pop and Talent Hub, the first social enterprise talent development platform in Singapore which gathered talents from social homes, institutions and also professional artists to sell their artworks with the objective of making them self-reliant.

She has been my Facebook friend for quite a while and I have been wanting to meet her. I have watched her Canon Think Big campaign, how she started helping others to start Social Enterprises and her ability to start a successful business from a hair stylist. I got to take a photo with her and also together with my staffs. A dream came true.

DS7W5740

3) MEETING ADAM KHOO – the last time I met him was years ago and after he spoke, I went over, said hello and had an enjoyable conversation chatting about how he started his fund, etc. I was happy catching up with him. How lives have changed within a few years.

DS7W5754

4) Meeting KC See – went for his preview when I was in my 20s where his course was called Certified Professional Trainer. I still remembered during those days, he was charging $6000+ for this course. I wanted so much to attend the course but I have no money. Fast forward 15 yrs+, I am glad to see him on stage where he talks about his life experience. After his segment, we spoke at our booth and we had a little chat. Exchanged name card and he was saying about collaboration in Malaysia. Looking forward to meeting him.

 DS7W5762

5) PATRICK LIEW (CEO of HSR Property Group), ROGER KOH (CEO of Chen Fu Ji Restaurant) Patrick Liew, Volunteers, the Entire Committee – saw how hard each of them work. Saw how the volunteers were helping the entire event. Since the onset of the event and I agreed to help, it was less than 10 days. I am aware of how Patrick called each of the speakers seeking help. It was like making cold calls. I saw how Patrick & Roger drive the event inside the Closed Group. It was madness! But they did it!

DS7W5944

6) CHARITY & the CONCEPT OF MONEY – I was amazed by the stories Jerome told on stage on how he gave away a few hundred dollars when he only have a thousand dollar left and how he believed that you don’t have to worry about money. He also shared how his previous biz partner left about $900K of unfulfilled training engagements with about $100K in the bank. He took over the biz and cleared the fulfillments.

DS7W5806

In a nutshell, I have grown another inch taller and I wish the same for you too.
