I want to talk about HOW is it feel like to be ‘almost” Forty (for me). This article is very personal to me; and yet, I feel so much Greatness around me now; compared to other ‘numbers’ of birthdays that I’ve celebrated.
1 – BYE-BYE “OTHER PEOPLE’S OPINION (OPP)”
OPP has controlled half of my life!! I slept with ‘worries’ and unnecessary ‘fear’ that was not even real. All are just words from other people who care-less about my Success and waiting for a chance to watch Dramas of my life.
NOW – Keep your Opinions, I’m living my LIFE and I hope you enjoy yours!
2 – MATERIA-LESS
Some of you may know that I’m a fan of watches, bags and accessories.
I only carry one small little sling bag every day, keeping my necessities and a simple life.
Note: I still like to ‘window-shopping’ with thoughts of buying some luxury items from time to time; but just ‘forget’ about it at the end of the day.
3 – HONESTY and BLUNT
I say what I want to say, “honestly” I want to be as honest as I could. Most people (including myself) want to hear something nice or sweet. I understand. Who wants to say something bad bluntly, right?
Keep it Short – I tell you how I feel (nicely) — that’s how I feel and I care about you.
4 – SIMPLICITY
Be Simple — it’s all in your Head! The simpler I become, Life looks easier!
5 – I exit from Group Chats and Unfriend friends too
Last year, I exited between 50 – 80 Whatsapp Group Chats. I just feel that I don’t need so much distractions and I don’t really contribute to the Group Chats. Say a Proper Good-bye and Bye-Bye!
6 – LEARNING
I ensure that I learn everyday. Everything I experience, is a learning; be it big or small. I read, I watch TV, I scroll on my phone — I’m constantly learning. I go to workshops, I go to seminars; I learn and I grow. I teach and I learn too! Life is Amazing isn’t it? Learning Opportunities is everywhere. Love it!
7 – I do things to make myself Happy
I don’t wait for People to make me Happy. I post funny posts on Facebook, I feel Happy. I post a nice photo on Instagram, I feel Happy. I give Trainings, I feel Happy. I meet my clients and we talk about things, I feel Happy. When my students achieve some successes, I feel Happy. HAPPINESS is truly a Great Ingredient in Life.
8 – I count my Blessings, not my Troubles
I’d a lot of troubles in my life (especially 10 years+ ago). It took me years to build myself and build what I have today. Counting my blessings, appreciate little things. I’m truly Grateful, in my very own way. I compare less, I appreciate more. I take less, I give more. I talk more and I listen even more! God is Great!
9 – I filtered my Friends, Mentors, Business Partners and Associates
I think I don’t have to explain too much on this one. I just match my Values with them, if they’re of Good Fit, we’re Good to Go!
10 – My SUCCESS is measured by “myself” not others
I’m Grateful, my Success is about being Happy and Grateful in Life. I’m doing what I truly enjoy everyday and spending time with my loved ones, whenever I want to. I’m living my life with Purpose and Happiness. This is my very own Success Story – I don’t compare with anyone else.
On another note, I want to thank my Mom for her unconditional Love, without her Love; I think I would be doing something else. Being able to Educate, Inspire and Empower people who work with me; I’m extremely Blessed; and being able to be Authentic is a plus point to me; because being REAL and Honest will lead to a more Meaningful Life.
Sending lots of Happiness and Joy to all of you; I’ve a lot of people to Thank; See you soon!
