Tough Times do NOT last. Tough people ALWAYS do ……. And I am thankful.



2014 has been an extremely tough and challenging year for me. Too many things happened that was NOT in the plan and was NOT supposed to happen.

It was painful as I was taking care of my mother that was battling cancer. I worked hard to find solutions that would make her better. I failed.

My mother’s passing made me very sad but definitely a lot tougher to learn that when things are not in my plan, I have to stay focus to keep moving forward. 

What goes up must come down and what is down will definitely go up. Timing vs Perseverance.

Yes, I had a very tough year with too many things happening all at the same time. But I am very thankful for my beloved wife, trusting business partners, good friends, loyal team members that continue to support me even when I give them hell. I am grateful and thankful for all that is not going right, I am tougher because of each of you and its time to go up. And I really mean UP!

Let’s intensify our efforts and make 2015 a damn awesome year for all of us. Things are about to change.

It will not be easy to get up from tough times unless we push ourselves extremely hard and stay focus on the things we want to achieve. I have learnt this 1 thing among others from a few special ppl in my career development, which is to stay positive, stay focused and continuously persevere in things that we do no matter how difficult the situation gets. Never give up and run away from problems!

Everything will continue to change because change is what keep us fresh and innovative. Without change, there will be no growth and we are growing. Let's make an awesome year of 2015 together.

When you hit a brick wall, do whatever it takes to go beyond it. Turning back is not the solution.
It will be an awesome year, not because someone told you so.. but because YOU are going to make it one!

A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work. So i am going to make it happen for me and get there.
