A Millionaire’s Mindset

 

I had this idea to write about this particular topic for some time now and I'm glad today it can finally be put out on paper.

In the past few months I have seen friends complete their final year bachelor's degree, some have started working and some are in the midst of pursuing their internship.

However, what most young graduates or should I put it this way, potential employees have in common, is the wrong mindset.

Let me enlighten you.

Call it dreams, we all have them. To work for a notable company, earn and live sustainably

Many of us know what we want, but not many know the little things we need to do, to path our way to fulfil them

Being a really smart student does not always mean you are entitled to a secure high-end job, nor does being a rich kid from a wealthy family guarantee you a place at your dad's company. Lastly, being underprivileged or incapable does not mean you cannot achieve greatness.

Its all about your mindset. Read that last sentence again.

Up until now, you might probably think "This girl probably reads a lot of motivational books". Well yes I do but reading is one thing and understanding, is another.

The problem with us is we keep complaining. We complain about every single thing! Think about it.

But, don't take this the other way. We all complain! Even myself.


A wrong mindset starts by choice.

Here are a few examples:

1) When you choose to portray how ungrateful you are and pour it out on social media platforms, especially on LinkedIn! (If you are on LinkedIn and you do this, then you need a serious reality check)

2) When you regret taking up a particular coursewhen others don't even have the opportunity for an education

3) When you complain about how boring and toughyour job is when others are jobless

4) When you make up excuses and deny yourself opportunities

5) When you forget that 'Rome was never built in a day'

Think about it. All these scenarios lead back to you.

______________________________________________________________________

When you speak to a group of people, its all you. People remember what you say when you least expect it.

Your reputation is the most profound thing you should nourish and grow

Instead of complaining and what not, why not conserve your energy and channel it positively to shape your future?

All you need is an idea, no matter right or wrong, big or small.

But first. A right mindset.

Attached

I will always find ways to talk to you.
Whether I close my eyes or when I'm wide awake.
Whether you feel me physically attached to you or not, you will hear me speak to you like echoes etched within your mind, during a hot summers day or a cold winter chime.

I will always find ways to get to you.
Whether I am far away or close behind.
Whether you feel me emotionally attached to you or not, you will feel me in the rhythms of your daily routines on a beautiful spring or at autumn's wind.

Dare To Take That Plunge

I suddenly have that emotional pang of writing everything down as fast as i can before i forget.Its like adrenaline. The hot fuzzy feeling lifting me from within.

I somehow feel that human beings like ourselves should push ourselves out there.

To achieve what we really want and to be whom we truly are.

Life is too short isnt it? To just sit around and mope. To complain about things that make us tick and to find the odd things that relate to us the most.

Find out what makes you want to wake up in the morning and be the best at what you want to be. Its not easy, I know but its not impossible either.

Do the things that you fear the most and you will feel yourself unravel into a person you never thought you could be.

Be bold and daring enough to take that plunge. Nothing great will ever be achieved in your personal comfort zone.

Nothing great was ever achieved without trying.

How To Spend Zero On Books?

Hello avid readers and bibliophiles, this post is dedicated to you.

As a reader myself I know there is a constant urge and a must to visit a bookstore wherever you are in the world. Currently in Taiwan, I have visited 2 bookstores but they don't have much choices for English books. Even if they do, they are mostly expensive compared to the books in Malaysia. As a student living on a budget its kind of a bummer when it comes to resisting books.

I couldn't let myself be deprived of books for too long and hence i opted for free books. Where? How? Online or spending a whole day at the bookstore to finish a book :p

Although you can access many free books online, do take note that not all books are available. I personally think its totally worth it if you don't mind not getting the feel of a book in your hand and you would like to save up your cash for other necessities.

So within this week I have actually gone on a crazy book marathon and finished reading 5 books within 5 days. Tell me about it. Its like I have lived more lives that I did all these years. Sorry, I'm being melodramatic :p

The books that I have currently are mostly nominated on
