A pleasant morning
Good Day to y'all. What a pleasant morning. I woke up early this morning. Spent my subuh with Allah. Tahajjud a bit. And met an interesting old fella whose working nearby my office. The name of this ol' fella is Mr. Hwang. He's now 82 years old. Still strong like a bull. And working his ass from 9-6, five days a week.
He has 4 children and all of them are specialists. We talked about everything except religious affairs. From a rubber tapping family, he grows and once owned the Plaza Phoenix. Sold it to Danaharta for RM40 Millions. Now, Danaharta sold the Plaza to Hong Kong based company for I dunno how much the sum. Must be higher than RM40 Millions. Mr Hwang does own a lot of properties. I dunno how many. But for sure a lots!
What I like to share is the Will of the Steel that ol' fella has. Not like us especially me. Living in a so called comfort zone. I asked him how he survived without a help from government. He told me that we must have GUTS and never fear to make mistakes. From the mistakes we made, we achieved something. Everyday is a learning day. Try to learn something new. And not repeat the same mistake twice. Try to avoid that and you'll survive. And one more thing, never satisfied with what you do now. Try to challenge yourself until you know the limitations. Believe yourself that you can do better from time to time.
Now that's what I called an achievement.
