#5MinutesTruth: Motivation is fancy word of FACTS OF SUCCESS


Have you ever googled motivational quote, just to motivate yourselves to do something? I know I did. We want to feel something which is the drive to get things done.  Sam Levenson said, “Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.”

Do you really feel motivated? Yes, for a second. If you really really ponder, the motivational quotes are really just facts! Check out a quote from Michael Phelps’

There will be obstacles. There will be doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work, there are no limits.

Again, the so call motivational quotes are actually facts of success. Only the people that are hardworking, persevere, hustle, grind and show grit will be successful. All it takes is action to make things happen. That is the only facts that will lead you to greatness.

They are two kinds of people. The first kind of people will say “I’m going to wait until I feel motivated.” The second kind of people will say “I’m going to do it because it is the facts of success.” The first one will never get anything done because he still waiting and waiting to feel motivated and not do anything about it. The other person will do first to live up to the facts of success. Which one do you want to be?

Every time you read motivational quotes, tell yourselves that it is the facts of success. If you intentionally do not live up the facts of success, you are unintentionally living up the facts of failure. Always live up to the facts of success! That is the only path to greatness.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!

#5MinutesTruth: Without hustle, talent will only carry you so far! #HustleQuote


There is a saying, “Work on the day job, and hustle the side job”. We can say hustle is a level higher of work. It is basically, squeezing every ounce of energy you have in you to fuel your passion. It is a component of GRIT which demonstrate passion and perseverance in your daily routine. Hustling is basically doing something extra and it requires the sacrifice of your time from your Friday night out, chilling on the weekends and any activity.

Here is the catch, you need to love the process of hustling. To do that, you need to love it and have a passion for it. It has to be effortless for you and you need to have excitement doing it. It must not be forceful because it will be not sustainable if you’re doing it for the sake of doing it. Confusion says,”Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” There are 3 main key points when you are hustling;

6 Pillars of Life Fulfilment


In life, there is always an up and down moment. It is like the electrocardiograph (ECG) reading that measure your heart’s electrical activity. If there is up and down,  it is a sign of life. You are alive! If it is a flat straight line, it is a sign of death. You are actually dead! It is the up and down moment that gives a meaning of life. It is death that gives life worth living. The key word is life fulfilment.

ECG Line for life fulfilment.jpg

I asked myself, “What does fulfilment mean to me? I believe the definition of Fulfilment will be different to different people. To me, fulfilment is the feeling of completeness, of achieving your goal and connect to your why.  I had to be in the moment of silence to frame on what does fulfilment means to me. It takes some time as well. I came up with the 6 Pillars of Life Fulfilment.

#5 Minutes Truth: Great Leaders aren’t born, they’re made!


When you hear the word “Leadership”, what is the first thing that comes into your mind? It could be your boss or management in your company. It could be your coach. It could be your team captain. It could be your president and prime minister. Here is my opinion, they just title that they held. It does not mean they have the noble leadership attribute. 

My late father taught me the 5 V’s of Leadership Attributes. There are Visible, Vocal, Value, Virtue and Vocation. Take some to read it. The toughest attribute to hold is the vocation. Vocation is defined as the undying commitment to serve. Leaders suppose to serve his or her people and lead them in the right direction. Before we lead people, ask yourself these question. Are you able to lead yourself? Are you a leader in your own life? Are you in control?  Once you are able to lead your life to greatness. Then, only you earn the right to lead people to greatness. Think about it. 

These are my 3 top quotes on leadership from Gary Vaynerchuk, Simon Sinek and Robin Sharma. There is one BONUS quote at the end by Simon Sinek.  Feel free to share this post. 

Quote on Leadership_1
Great Leaders aren’t born, they’re made. By Gary Vaynerchuk.

 

Quote on Leadership_2
Leadership is a choice. It is not a rank. By Simon Sinek

 

Quote on Leadership_3
Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It’s about impact, influence and inspiration.  By Robin S. Sharma.

FIND YOUR FIRE!


This is one of my favourite picture from The Reebok Spartan Race.  People often ask me, why do you race? My question to you why do you not race? The question “Why do you Race?” is a great metaphor of “Why do you live?”

I live to inspire people to embrace the adversity of life so that they can grow living life with fulfilment. That is why I Race. Let’s look at the two Spartans crossing the finish line right before the fire. One with a complete set of body, 2 arms and 2 legs. The other Spartan had 2 arms, 1 leg and crutches. Physically, they are different. However, both of them has the fire of a Spartan to beat all the life adversity.

The question is who has the most fire? At first glance, probably the one with crutches may have the most fire. However, I believe both of them has a different story to tell. One of them could be physically challenged which we can observe. One of them could be an emotional challenge which we cannot observe. At the end of the day, both of them has their own setback. But they cross the finish line! That is when it really counts! Here is the secret,  it is not about the setback. It is how you respond to your setback. All it takes is action! They make the decision to take action to break their setback. Instead of complaining about it and do nothing at all. They decide to take the positive attitude to matter how life hit them! That is the fire each of us needs to have!

The only disability in life is a bad attitude~ Scott Hamilton

My question to you my beloved readers, what are the setbacks you need to deal everyday? Have you found your fire? In other words, have your discover your why? How strong your fire to break the life obstacle? It is good to learn to embrace your fire, you will be impressed how far you can achieve despite all the setback. That is how life roll! All it takes is action, then the fire will ignite!

find your fire we are spartan
