Entrepreneur Who Stand For Balance and Value
Starting 2014, my life as an entrepreneur is kinda like riding a roller coaster, it has ups and downs and I have learned that it’s my choice to either be miserable or enjoy the ride by shifting the thought and emotion. During these few months, I went through some trainings (AsiaWorks – life, Cradle – business), charity (old folk home and raising fund for sex workers, orphanage and stray animals), event (Eu-MCCI & Digi WWWOW workshop), books reading (Nick Vijucic and Bob Proctor) and etc which bring me to a point that what do I stand for? What would people remember LIM KANG XIANG, when I leave. What are the things that I want to accomplish in this life?
I am those people know what exactly I want in my life, be it entrepreneurship, family, relationship, personal and contribution to society. However, I never have these questions pop up in my mind till now, compared to what I had set for 2014-2016 goals. Reviewing back to my declaration of excellence during AsiaWorks training, this blog, my instagram (about me) and my dairy, I made a conscious and clear decision on my vision, which I stand for BALANCE and VALUE. I believe that Everyone Deserves To Dream Big, Living Life To The Fullest!
The Popular Question:” What Do You Want?”
I found a lots of people are having “consideration” with their dream. Some of them dare not to dream, some pretend not knowing their dream or some said i am not ready with my dream yet (for me, DREAM = WHAT DO I WANT?). I understand that money, time and people are big issues in life, but is it a FACT or BELIEF that we cannot achieve dream without anyone of them? I have seen entrepreneurs who start from zero, leaders who has no hand or legs, etc achieved their result successfully. If A is the your stand point and B is the result you want, do you understand & aware of what’s the limiting belief that holding back you to achieve it? I would suggest to go for AsiaWorks Training, the basic training is designed for us to aware of those limiting belief. It works for me.
Looking back to my entrepreneurial journey, I experiences that KNOWLEDGE & ATTITUDE, TIME & OPPORTUNITY, and MONEY are the 3 main factors which holding one person to dream big and do bigger. I pursue this as an opportunity to serve the vision “Everyone Deserves To Dream Big, Living Life To The Fullest!”, yet to create values to people, planet and profit.
