At times when you feel your life is shattering into pieces, you should know that it will reconstruct itself in no time. With your strong will, you know you are getting closer to your goal. Believe in yourself! Refuse to sink! Refuse to Fail! Show the world all of what you got! And yes, no matter what happens, you know you will have a big smile on your face!! 

Here are the facts, be brave takes risks and nothing can substitute experiences. We fail so we can learn to wake up. We need fear so we can learn how to be brave. We need obstacles in life to gain experiences. At the end of the day, you will see that you are actually braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.

Through out a whole life, people seek to be independent. It takes time and effort to accomplish. It is not hard to be independent, however, it is not easy if you have a great vision of yourself. Some people will think it’s the greediness that makes people unhappy. The way I see it, it’s the greediness that makes people successful and get the life that they envision themselves to have. So, it’s nothing wrong to be greedy. Just remember those who really treasure you and believe in you, treat them with your true self. Appreciate them! For those who don’t stand by you, they are in your least interest. You know you are awesome and deserve everything that you envision yourself in. Go ahead, be greedy! Because at the end of the day, you and all those who deserves sharing your success are the people who worth your concerns and they will love you just the way you always are.

Whenever you have doubts, here is something that can remind of who you really are. Being soft doesn’t mean that you are not strong, but allows you balance between logic and emotions. Emotional effect can be a powerful thing. Most people find themselves have difficulties following their logic when it comes to something that they emotionally involve. Embrace your soft side and be stronger! 

Break up is one of the worst things to deal with in life. Some of us may take it out on food and some may lost all taste in life. I start to unerstand why parents always tell us not to date until college or even after. We will need experiences in order to find out what is suitable for us. However, it takes some years of experiences to develop the ability for self control. There are less and less people admit that they crave for true love because of the bad relationship experiences that they had. Heart is made to be broken. If you have a broken heart, that means you have loved before. “Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.” It is alright if your relationship doesn’t work because you will rather find the problem sooner or later. When an old relationship has passed, gain the expereince and positive outlook from it.
"Never regret. If it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience." For those who are career headed, I am sure you will hear some people telling you that you should cut down some of that workaholic mind of yours if you want to find a man/woman. I agree to a certain degree on this. Of course when you devote your time into finding a man/woman, you will certainly find one. However, is this the person who is suitable for the real you? Can he/she handle the fact that you love your work and be more understanding than any other about your passion on your work? The goal is not finding a man or a woman to spent your life with but to find THE man or THE woman. Don’t ever look back and regret because moving forward is the only way to enjoy life the fullest!

Here is one of my all time favorite quote at all time. “You can choose to be happy or sad and whichever you choose that is what you get. No one is really responsible to make someone else happy, no matter what most people have been taught and accept as true.” When you found someone who is willing to stand by you and give you care and support, treasure him/her. Be grateful and positive. Treat your love ones with love and respect.

It is ok if you failed a few relationships because it means you have the strength to stand up and love.

It is ok to take time to heal because your mind will be clearer after.  

It is ok to be angry or depressed because you know after all these, you will find the peace.

It is not easy to keep a positive outlook in life. When you find someone who can enhance the negative part of you and put into a positive outlook, treasure him/her.  

Yesterday is history; Tomorrow is a mystery and Today is a gift, that’s why we called it PRESENT.

I’m sure many of you have heard that before, but how many people can really understand the meaning behind the quote and execute their lives accordingly? I see present as a gift because it is the only moment that you can changes. People said what’s done is done for a reason. If past is an experience, present is an experiment and future will be an expectation. You simply just use your experiences in your experiment to achieve your expectation!! Emotional makes us human and it is also the birth mother of those romances. 

Now here is the idea!!

Treasure your present and share it with your love ones. If you want to make a change, make it NOW because it is the earliest moment that you will ever have to make that change! Be strong! Be determine! If you think something is worth it, go for it! Hard work might not pay off right away but it will pay off! Hang in there and let the journey begins!!

Many of us experienced the pressure from other’s expectation or so called peer pressure. Many people will settled for the comfort zone. I am not saying that settling is bad. However, when you are young, you should try new things and ideas. The feeling of satisfactory is not easy to get. Non the less, challenge yourself is also an important task as well. I believe many of you had the feeling of accomplishing the things that you thought was impossible. Yah, it felt awesome! Each of us has our strength and weaknesses. Before you get all fire up to face the challenges, try to understand yourself. In order for you to trust yourself, you will need to spent some time to know yourself first. Comparing with others can sometimes boost up our self-esteem. However, overly doing it will jeopardize the intuitive of the idea, which is to make oneself feel better about him/herself. Self-confidence comes from within. What do I mean by that?

1. Find the thing that you know you are better than many others.

2. You are a special individual and no one can replace you in this world.  

3. You have experiences in certain area that most people don’t, for example, your job, your outlook, your relationship experiences or your environment.

4. You are loved and cared by friends and families regardless of what you do or where you go.

5. Respect yourself first then others will follow.

6. Although there are always improvements in life, you are doing pretty good now.

7. Don’t be afraid to face the fact. What you want to do or who you want to be. It will happen when you work on it.
