Don’t sweat the small things to make it in life.

I am in high spirits today! This is despite a cab driver scratching my Maserati, which was of course painful. I am think in life, we often lose focus of what is important. Sure I was very upset that my car was scratched, but what came after that made my day even more.

The first incident. I was thinking of Robin, one of my students from 3 maybe 4 years back. He emailed me to get together a couple of weeks ago but I was flying so much that I could not commit. I have a little time next week so I wanted to catch up with him. Immediately after I sent off the email, my PA gave me a package. It contained the latest issue of Prestige magazine where Robin was featured. It chronicles him as a young successful gentleman who has made his mark in the bath accessories industry at the tender age of 29.He was very kind to mention me as a source of inspiration.

The second incident. Immediately, after I received the package. Fu Chin emailed me back after a couple of email exchanges this morning. He finally sealed the deal for his first property. This was after a long search with a lot of guidance. I can understand that he must be feeling extremely delighted! His first property! He thanked me but really it is his hard work. The harder you work, the luckier you will get.

I am extremely pleased that I had played a small part in their lives. In fact, after this afternoon, I am a little more motivated to continue on my journey to enrich people’s lives. I cannot make everyone happy and shit occasionally happens, but guess what. You will appreciate the happy times if you have not been down and out before. So take heart and enjoy whatever life may throw at you. Don’t sweat the small things as they are the stuff that makes your success even sweeter.
Till next time, God bless!
