Breaking the Silence

Finally, something noteworthy to me to break the silence here.

I just realised I am probably someone driven by anger. And I also realised (once again) that the most dependable person is still yourself.

Yes, I do have high expectations, unreasonable expectations maybe, but never impossible. Yes, something happened and that something angered me greatly. But I am glad it happened to wake me up once again to tell me that the world is still spinning no matter how illusionary sturdy and still you are standing – leaving you behind, always leaving you behind, unless you catch up.

No, catching up is not enough, because reality spins and moves faster than the world and the sad status still stays – you are STILL left behind. You need to run, run faster than the competition, plan 10 steps further than your peers, because in this world, money, wealth and power is not only tangible, it’s REAL.

Thus being content is not an option. Dependancy that breeds stillness is not wise. I must run and turn my 24 hours into 48 hours. Since history, many great deeds were driven by anger and hunger. I am angry, but I am moving. Only when the fire is burning can greatness be achieved.

I am not satisfied with a normal life.

Quench my thirst for knowledge. Let’s see how much information can this brain of mine fit.

Changing People’s Lives with Makeovers

This video gave me a whole train-ride of inspirations on how to start changing people’s lives, already. What if I have a team of make up artists and stylists willing to take some time after work, once a week. And then, I have a team of personal coaches willing to help those who wants to be helped? On the side line, we have a waiting list of people, clueless and distressed, desperate to know how they can change their lives.

We work after work. Changing one life a week.

PM me if you are interested in this idea and would want to see to make this work!

Update!!!
13 November 2013 –  Makeup Artist 1 :

A friend I got to know through instagram is intereted in working on this project! Her IG name is @vinvola and she’s a makeup artist (a awesome one too!) Check out her lovely blog with makeup and health tips! : www.loveybelle.com

I was just brainstorming this with a group of people in the beauty industry and the idea became cooler if the makeup used are also donated so the makeup artists don’t have to fork our any more money on top of the very valuable time they will be giving 🙂

This Week’s Summary

Look at the young not by who they are but who they can become.
Judge them not by what they do not know, but the time they have, to learn and grow.
Inspect not the clothes worn on the outside, but the character still molding inside.
Work with them not because you can make use of them, but because of what you can impart to the future.
Never belittle the youth, because without us, there’s no future to look forward to.

This week had been an exciting week of opportunities and accomplishments, meeting up with people, many older than me, and working with peers, some younger than me. Some of you might know why I’m saying all these and what I am talking about. For those who don’t, I’m summarizing my week for you.

‘Here is just one example of the total wrongness of something I tend to be automatically sure of…’

In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice we’ve ever come across, and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education.
We made this video, built around an abridged version of the original audio recording, with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience who might not have otherwise been interested. However, we encourage everyone to seek out the full speech (because, in this case, the book is definitely better than the movie).
