Live your life …….. Dream your dreams …….. Work your dreams ……..
Under the prevailing bleak and challenging, global economic outlook, most of us are affected in one way or another. Things are no longer as rosy as we perceived some time back. Global uncertainties are still looming around us. But, do we really have to let these unhappy moments and circumstances diminish the good stuff we can expect of life or ourselves tomorrow or the day after that?
Many people are retrenched everywhere and to some people, getting back into the workforce is a real challenge during this difficult period.
This year, I have the privilege to meet three ordinary men who is living this extraordinary moment with flying colors. They are Joe, Kent and Tony. Joe, an engineer, 55 years of age was retrenched two years ago. Unable to find another job at that age, Joe made up his mind to venture into business. Using a recipe passed down by his family he began selling “Yow Char Koay.” With a lot of passion and creativity Joe later expanded his range of deep fried stuff once he noticed a demand. Today, his business is flourishing with three outlets to promote his specialties.
Kent, 50, ventured into food business at the age of 20. Today, despite everyone is complaining of poor business and keen competition, Kent is very confident and optimistic about growing his business through constant innovation and expanding his range of products to serve his growing customer base.
Tony, is in his early 40s. A skilled carpenter specializing in cabinets and wardrobes. He left his employment to venture into business a year ago. Initially he carried a photo album to illustrate the various designs he had done whenever he meets his potential customers. Then, he had a website. Today, Tony have a showroom in a new and growing township and is doing reasonably well.
I believe be it good or tough times, we still have to live. Why not live the best you can in the moment? Continue to dream your dreams and be sure to work on your dreams. I stumbled upon the following video very recently. And, like me, I believe you will be equally inspired after this video. Please sit back, relax and get inspired …………………..
As I conclude my post, I accept that occasional setbacks or bad days are bound to happen in my life. We can count on them as the package in life. The good news is we don’t need to stay in that state or remain there forever because life is always filled with choices. We can always choose to rise above our circumstances. Tomorrow can be a better day if we choose to live the moments of our life the best we can. Continue dreaming our dreams. And working on our dreams at the appropriate time.
“Happy Friday ……………………………………… and Live, Dream, Work. ” !!!
