Hi everyone =)How’s your day today ? Or should i ask in a more suitable manner – How’s your year been treating you ?
Time flies yah, it’s nearly July 2010 already ~! What have you done ? What have you not done ? Have you turn the bad times into the good, and the worst better ? Have you been taking fabulous time doing far more than just good. Or conceivably, like most of us ppl out there, you’re still in the ‘hang-in’ there situation, discouraged by the current recession and being the same old you, doing the same old thing =)
To all the new friends in this room, may i have the humbleness to re-introduce my crazy self again. I am Leng Yein, just turned 25 this April. A girl from Kuantan who moved to KL 4 year plus ago. A typical Aries who wanted to have everything but she couldn’t possibly get it all so she chose to want most of the things – which means a bit of everything =) Hehe ~
I am very very selective of my close ones. Been taking in too much proves me not good in the past. So there u go, I will be good to my love ones, my family, my friends, my girls, my associates, my combat buddies, and all the ppl who’ve helped me along my way. But im a very bad person to those whom i think treats me badly. I learn by my mistakes, I accept gossips about me widely, really widely. And i really really wanna thank those people who made my name everywhere they go =) I LOVE YOU SO MUCH ~ mwah ~
I may not know you personally. And i don’t know how you were brought up to be and become. But i do know that one must have the best attitude to succeed that many ppl are aspired to have. So do u have that ? I might feel an iceberg between us if i were to come to u blindly and say hi or befriend u one day. But if i bumped into you in my events, u’ll surely get a sincere smile from me =)
Dun get me wrong. We might be very different in age or not so, but we are not very different in life. Perhaps the only difference is that you are a degree graduate who’d already have a plan to even know what you wan2 do for a living in future and im only a Form 5 grad. Hehe ~
I do alot of crazy things, but i am still searching for what i love do best. I must confess that i always fall in love with everything that i am doing. Self-work-obsession ~ Ah ~ A total ‘profession blind’ person ~ Hah ~ Ppl thought i am such an entrepreneur *omg* !! @_@ I pretty much try to stay in a constant state of confusion just because of the expression it leaves on my face. Oh, i just love being with good people in my events, doing crazy lil things, making funny face expressions together, and taking crazy pictures =) I’ll keep it in my mind for quite some time… quality times, quality friendship, quality ... it makes me happy =) Well, im a happy person =)
Never let a problem to be solved, become more important than the person to be loved… The most practical, beautiful, workable philosophy in the world won’t work - if you won’t. And i strongly stand against what i believe, and how i will do my job and deliver. If i ever face a problem at work, i will think of what to throw, and what to keep. Who to stay, and who to go. I align them by putting which is worth more … For their effort, their time, their dedication, their sincerity, their love, and their passion.
I always believe that we cannot help a person if they do not want to help themselves. Attitude is one of the important key and it counts in what i do. Maybe u think it’s such a cliché but I wouldn’t have turned out the way I was if I didn’t have all those old-fashioned values to rebel against.
Things that i do, my business, my restaurant, my magazine, my events, had brought me so much happiness that it filled half of my time with. They brought me friends, associates, my mirror to reflect on myself, my stories, my life, my friends-turned-foe. Yeah, the not-so-happy part is always the friends-turned-foe part.
I pact with it, it’s like flipping the pages of my story book, just that i am the author to it. I believe some of you have this problem too huh ! Well, live with the least regrets. Never settle for less than what you know you deserve. Asking for what you want and need from others, speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension among others, if they don’t accept it, accept yourself and always remember why and how it started and for what purpose does it serve.
Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe. Always be mind-clear of the values in yourself and others. Love them, and be ready to be loved back. I constantly remind myself that, it's my life. So let me live the life i wanted to live ... No matter what others have to say. It's My Life.
We don’t get to know people when they come to us; we must go to them to find out what they are like. Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it, a self-challenge. That’s what i call. To learn to face the bigger world out there, and to prepare ourselves for all that comes our way, to succumb, succeed, and make our mark. My tip, If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you’ll achieve the same results. If u wanna make your mark faster, pursue on something no one had ever done, it is a short cut, only with a wee bit more hard work and risks to take, to be a wee bit more daring, more bold, more challenging and more fun. So, are you the one ?
Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; In the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be. It is almost the end of 2010 in 6 months time. What had you lined up for yourself ? Me, i have at least 5 more major dates to go before year ends, some projects to be completed, some planes to catch, and some bit left and right to be done before waving the fetching year 2011. Hmm … i might have not much time left already =~~~)
To all my dear friends and all the new friends in this room, i hereby again welcome you, and thank you for taking your precious time reading my story. The pleasure is mine of course. Well, I have to rush off now, gotta complete my 'to-do' lists of the day =)
Wishing all of you the most excellent luck and may you have the greatest year ever =) Gentle reminder, always remember who you are, and what makes you standing strong upon everyone on this present day.
The difference between failure and success is doing a thing nearly right, and doing a thing exactly right. And always remember - the most practical, beautiful, workable philosophy in the world won’t work - if you won’t.
Love Always ... Leng Yein
