Mental Strength of Team Malaysia

Dear All,

For the past week we have been seeing the character of Team Malaysia at Indonesia Sea Games in Jakarta and Palembang which I could considered magnificent especially to the Football team where we managed to retain the Gold medal that Malaysian won in the last game at Laos in 2009. The Mental Strength is really unbelievable knowing that they are playing in front of more than 90,000 raucous fans at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium.

When talking about mental strength, we need to address at the top level it is not your physical or technical expertise which separates you from the competition but your mental toughness. To be outstanding you have to hold your nerve, perform under the most intense pressure, and consistently turn it on even when you don’t feel at your best. Mental toughness is what makes Michael Jordan and Pete Sampras so special. These athletes know their real battle is not so much on the court, but inside their heads. You absolutely must manage your mental side if you want to be the best. That is what our Young Tigers showed last night at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium.

Given that mental strength is so vital, I find it truly amazing that it is so neglected in training routines in our sporting communities. Only few have adopted the strategy but more just ignoring it. If you are one of those athletes who spends all your training time on technique and fitness while paying no attention to your mental side, you are doing yourself a serious disservice. Sport Science have proof that from countless studies that mental skills are acquirable and you can, with practice, learn to perform mentally. You can improve your confidence, concentration, motivation and anxiety levels if you chose to. The boys have shown us how to be like a man at a lion den. Ahah! What a words huh! SYABAS MALAYSIA.

SPM 2010 Result was out

Why I want to write about this now and not last week on March 23 to be exact, because I was simply busy last week.

This year result was quite late compared to the previous years so there were many speculations of the date when the result would be released. Even during school holiday we were at Kuala Terengganu attended my niece wedding at Batu Rakit, people are asking about when the result shall be announced.

Generally in the newspapers they said that all schools’ performance were good. More students managed to get straight A’s from previous years and 2010 result is the best after 4 years down the road. Nevertheless, I still believe that whatever results that they received, that would be what they deserved to get ~ reap what you sow 🙂

As for my daughter I am proud of her. Why? Despite her good result, she has made up her mind to study Alimah at Madrasah Al-Hikmah this is all because of the Qudrat of Allah SWT. My entire sister in-laws are asking me why my daughter do not want to further her study at University? I said many students have enroll to universities studying Engineering, medicine, business, etc but why not let my daughter study the Deen of Allah so that in this world we will have enough people to know about the religion which is also important for a check and balance to human race life in this world.

So to those who have achieve good result all the best in your next course of life and pray to Allah that He will guide us to stay on the right path until we end our life here and enter the next life which is longer and forever.

Whosoever desires (by his deeds) the reward of the Hereafter, We give him increase in his reward, and whosoever desires the reward of this world (by his deeds), We give him thereof (what is decreed for him), and he has no portion in the Hereafter. Quran Explorer – [Sura : 42, Verse : 20 – 20]

Love, Wealth and Success

It has been awhile I did not update this blog. All due to my work and also outstation activities. Will try to get it moving again and hope you guys still have patience with me here. Today just a simple story in order for me to move on.

Here how the story goes…..

A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said “I don’t think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat.”
“Is the man of the house home?”, they asked.
“No”, she replied. “He’s out.”
“Then we cannot come in”, they replied.
In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened.

“Go tell them I am home and invite them in!”
The woman went out and invited the men in”
“We do not go into a House together,” they replied.
“Why is that?” she asked.
One of the old men explained: “His name is Wealth,” he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, “He is Success, and I am Love.” Then he added, “Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home.” The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. “How nice!!”, he said.
“Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!”
His wife disagreed. “My dear, why don’t we invite Success?”
Their daughter was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion:
“Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!”
“Let us heed our daughter’s advice,” said the husband to his wife.
“Go out and invite Love to be our guest.”
The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, “Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest.”

Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other 2 also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: “I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?” The old men replied together: “If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would’ve stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!!!!! !”

Whatever mountains stands in your path,
Whatever obstacle blocks your way,
Whatever difficulty immobilized you,
The prayer full of faith can remove it.

All you have to do is ask from ALLAH.

How to make a million and preserve it

To all Malaysian do get a copy of “Personal Money” magazine today. Why? Because there is one inspiring article in there with this title “How to make million….and preserve it”. All are about Malaysian who become millionaires in their respective field with their own talent or skill. Millionaires are not born but instead they are being develop.

In that article it says that this year’s millionaires come form diverse backgrounds. One was a cleaner who earned £2.70 an hour, one was a helper at a char kuey teow stall at the tender age of 10. One started her career as a bank teller right after form five, earning RM400 a month. One made his million from the Internet over three years while another turned RM5,000 into a million over a decade. Some leveraged on their talents, while others invested their way to a million.

But all of them had one thing in common – they focused on their goals. Go out now and get the copy today and read on to find out how they hit their targets and here is what the experts have to say if you wanna be a millionaire one day.

1. Think again. Do you really want a million ringgit? “For a lot of people, a successful business is one that allows them work-life balance and a decent lifestyle,” says Jeremy Hand.

2. Assess your motives. “Far too many people think that [entrepreneurship] is about money when it’s really about building a good business,” Nigel Brown says. “Whenever you want to start a company, do it with passion,” Stefan Glaenzer says. This enterprise will become your life; you’d better like it.

3. Find out more. Attending a workshop or training session run by experienced entrepreneurs will give you a sense of the reality of running a business, Robert Tull says.

4. Keep it private. At least while you get things going. “Don’t focus on convincing other people or external investors,” Glaenzer says. “Just work on your idea… in the evening or at night… so that you have more than just an idea.”

5. Start small. How much funding you need to begin will depend on your business; generally it’s less than you think, Brown says. Banks, family and friends are all potential sources of support, Hand says. “As a young entrepreneur you’re not likely to find an institutional angel investor so look for one in your current network.”

6. Not everyone’s a critic. But you need one. “Your friends and family… will say you’ll be great, but what you need is someone who will ask ‘Is that a viable idea? Do the figures show that you will make money from it?’,” Tull says.

7. Get your structure right. Is it 50-50 between you and your co-founder? What will you do if someone else gets equity? “You have to think about ownership right from the start,” Brown says. “Assume that you will be wildly successful. If you don’t, you will be caught out if you are.”

8. Plan. “You need a clear idea of where you want to take the business,” Hand says. Once you know where you want to go, reverse engineering can help you to get there.
