Restless is normally associated with the negative. But what does restless mean?
I am not ashamed to declare that I get restless each time I hear or read about someone venturing into something new or is doing well in their life/business. Yet I am at the same time contented.
I can almost hear come of you saying I am cuckoo. Contented and Restless mentioned in the same breath? Aye!
I am contented with the effort and progress I have made in my life. God has given me what He deems is best for me as of now. However I am also restless (in the good sense) each time I read about people doing well. I am restless because I am encouraged. I am motivated. I am reminded that there is always room for growth and improvement. I am glad and thankful that I am still able to feel restless. It is evident that there is still fire in me.
So as no you can see, it is not a matter of comparison with others nor is it greed. It is simply wanting to challenge myself to be the best I can be. It matters not if I achieve it as long as I made the effort.
I pray that God will continue to grant me the desire and feeling of restlessness. He wants me to PUSH (Pray Until Something Happens). Everyday I enter into the mode of PUSH & ACTION.
Yeah, you heard me. I have an attitude. Bad boy am I? Far from the contrary, I have the good learner’s attitude….so I remind myself all the time.
Having an attitude is not bad. Having a bad attitude is. In my case, it is my belief that you learn from the time you take your first breath till your last.
Learning and application….that’s the actions that create magic.
Yesterday, at the invite of a friend, I attended School of Charisma. The full day session on Personal Branding was hosted by the awesome Datin Winnie Loo and Steve Wee.
Here, amongst my fellow professionals from all industries inc professional photographers, doctors, head hunters, etc, we were given a greater insight into the how’s, what’s, why’s, when’s and where’s of branding. The highly participative nature of the session made us all think. Session was especially relevant and beneficial due to the input of Datin Winnie, drawing from her wealth of experience and success in her baby A Cut Above group.
At the end of the day, all of us left with clearer ideas on branding. Importantly too was the networking and bonding amongst our peers of other industries.
For our new friends, in case you are wondering who Nicholas is, here’s who I am in point form…
Most people look forward to public holidays as it’s opportunity to take a break. Few days before this I received a call from a good friend. He’s Zung, the renowned Celebrity Photographer. He’s conducting a seminar for fellow professional photographers called “Zero to Hero”.
Am ever ready to support a fellow friend and impart knowledge to make a difference in people’s life. My role is primarily to share my experiences as a successful serial entrepreneur from the financial perspective.
Topics shared encompass entrepreneurship, insurance, investments, real estate and estate planning.
The time allocated flew by in a few blinks. Was the objective met? Judging from the twinkle in the eyes of the audience, I would say that is a definite YES. Questions started flooding in towards the end and after the session.
Towards the end of the session, we were flooded with questions and requests for personal consultations.
