The World Wants Us to Do Better!

I was asked recently by a friend, "How can you do & achieve so much in such a short period of time?" I responded with a smile and said, 

1. Clarity & focus vision on my Life Direction. 
2. Discipline & determination of my Heart Desires. 
3. Intense & massive actions with no complains, no blame & no excuses. 
4. Take no bull shit from anyone. 
5. Love, give & let go to move forward. 

And if I die today, I die a fulfilled man with dreams achieved with the time and talents granted to me by the Big Man upstairs. I am grateful and thankful for the opportunities to contribute to make a difference. 
The World Wants Us to Do Better in Everything. The question we need to ask ourselves is what are we willing to sacrifice and do that will allow us to do better. 

I cannot make that decision for you. Only you can make that decision for yourself. Decide wisely.

The good and the great are only separated by the willingness to sacrifice.I really appreciated their efforts. I think that the best piece of advice, to constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.
Thank you for sharing.

Dear Mr Ernie,

True indeed. Vision clarifies our dreams and purposes of life. Without a clear vision we would not be able to reach the success and fulfil our dreams. I strongly believe vision is an essential element in our life, not an optional. In other words, vision effectively execute our dreams either for the long term or the short term.

Thank you.

Now it is our destination to be motivated to play our roles as employees to work accordingly with the organisation goals. Thank you for being a great leader and setting the right path for us as a team.

Agreed that only we can decide how we want to make a difference. In fact, there is a verse in our Holy Quran that mentioned 'god will never changes the condition of people unless they strive to change themselves'

It takes courage and confident to make a life-changing decision. I believe that the process will be easier if we know the values of it.
Normally I wont allow people to make decisions in my life as I am the only person who will know what I want and what I am capable of doing. At the same time, I learned not to make decisions based on the temporary feelings as it wont be wise.
In a nutshell, when the decision is wise then there is no place for regret!

Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.


Lola Zainal said...

All of the 5 responses definitely make sense on how we can 'Do Better to the World'. We want the best in life but sometimes we are not sure on what we want. Therefore, we need to look at the first 'response' so that the rest will follow and go smoothly.
It is just that, I need to remember to not always think what I plan will go accordingly, because life is not that easy. The challenges and barriers will train me to be a better person.

Thank you Mr Ernie for the wonderful tips!

'No complains, No blame, No excuses', such simple and easy words but it is undeniably influential on one's impression to others. Time waits for no man, and a wise man is able to make limited time fruitful. Make the right decision and let's not regret one day when the opportunities are not knocking on our doors anymore.

We live a fair life....

To succeed, we have to sacrifice our time. When we sacrifice our time for the right thing, we are prioritizing a certain task over another- a task that is more worth our time, that brings us nearer to succeeding.

Mr.Ernie, thank you for always encourage us to succeed.

The world wants us to do Better.
It is very easy to do better if I just say it & shout it.
When comes to do it, NOT everyone is able to do so as everyone is too rely on the comfort zone. When we choose to grow, to do better, that means we are choosing to get out from our comfort zones.

Yes. I have been experienced and saw it myself with my own eyes that seeing few individuals chose to have a comfort zone & stopping themselves to move forward. No one fault as everyone has the right to choose what they want.

I really appreciate that I met Mr. Ernie and experienced the PORTMAN Education.
I am continue growing because of PORTMAN. Even though I am growing, sometimes I felt pain & not comfortable. Growing is a very tough process but to me it's a process of AWESOME life.
I can just very easy to say I want to quit or just leave it there and stop myself at the comfort zone.

I chose not to do so. Because I am also the one who is meeting the new generations and the young batches daily basis, I sincerely want them to grow and do better. How can I say something to them and not doing it myself?

Yes. I love them and I gave them my time. However, it's painful when they just take it as worthless. I learned to give up and wish them all the best. I have way to many awesome things to work on and I have no time for the rest.

I really want to continue growing here, apologize of my speed of growing is way too slow for the organization. But one thing I know is I will continue grow here until the day of success.

Thank you PORTMAN & Mr. Ernie for growing me to become a better human being.
Thank you.

Yes. We must know our direction, and take action to do it. We need to decide what we want to achieve in our life. Don't let other people to rush you in their timelines. We are not them, we follow what we wants!

Thank you Mr. Ernie for the sharing.


*Nothing Will Work Unless You Do*

It is same as everyone has been given many chances for many different things, just depends on are we taking it or leaving it.
Nothing will work if we don't do, if we've decided to do, work extremely harder to really make it work.

If you have a DREAM, GO GET IT.

The game is change after 9 May 2018. The world is now really really wants us to do better!

If a 92 years old man can lead the opposition party and yet takeover the ruling party which controlled the country for 61 years, anything is possible with the effort, hard work and team work together.
