Easier said than done

This post is purely from my heart. I don't intend to flame or hurt anybody feeling. I just want to say what is in my mind.

I just can't understand why some people only know how to talk but no action in walking their talk. Or maybe it is their habit of saying something but didn't do it. But when they fail, they will blame it to their destiny. What I'm trying to say here is, doing business.

I've been in some business for quite long time ago and I have to admit it is a failure. But I'm just saying that, that is not the end of it. Maybe it is because my lack of time to manage and lack of experience to manage them. And the price tag for the lesson that I've learn is TWENTY THOUSAND RINGGIT. I'm talking about money that is purely from my father hard work. And that lesson still hunt me until today. Wasting money? Yes but the lesson that I've learn is just enough. Now, I'm working with someone company and "makan gaji" for about 3 years. Is that enough? No.

Now, the company that I'm working now is a Multi Level Marketing company (still the same company that I mention above) and believe it or not, I'm part of it. And I've already learn lots of thing from the company about business. Surrounded by people who success in their job and having a good life, surely, indirectly, you will learn something from them.

I've seen those who walk the talk and who just talk the walk. I admire those who walk the talk because I can see their success that they enjoy now. But for those who said, this is easy, but still whining about can't sell the product (talking the walk), you already know what happen to them.

Yes there are millions of motivational book that you can buy and read. Doing this, invest that, manage this, think positively about that.... etc... I've already read these books. Maybe we already can build a mini library just by buying and reading their book. But do we really do what they ask us to do?

Dreaming about getting a successful life is not a sin. I always said to my wife and my brother "Dari 'trip' lah semua buli dapat" (From dreaming about getting it can make it reality). But do us really try to make it reality?

A mansion started from a brick. And to build a business you must have the base, knowledge, money and time. Unless your family is rich then you have a good financial support. What if you don't have the money? Don't even have a single cent to spare to do the business? What will you do? Ask for loans? How easy is that to get a loan? Is it as easy like asking someone to 'belanja makan'?

Work from below. Start from scratch. That is the answer. That is, getting a steady job. Save money to kick start the business. Money won't grow out from tree. If they really do, you still have to find the seed and watch after the tree because since they DO grow money, someone going to steal it.

Stop saying that this business is easy. Go out and bring 7 people to the business presentation and ask them to join. If they do sign up, ask them to do EXACTLY what you do and buy seven unit of the product for each of them. If you do have 3 generation of downline within 1 month, then you "walk the talk". Or else, you just "talk the walk".

As for me, I don't say that business is easy. I'm still "makan gaji". But I didn't stop planning for other business. There are few businesses that are underway now. Even I've already got someone who wants to do it with me. I just don't say it out loud. Because I want to do the walk before I talk.

And after all, it's easier said than done.

*I want to get a new pair of kicker, mine already worn out after using them for about 2 straight year. Just imagine using them everyday and still surviving despite of all the abuse. How about Dansko? Hope can get them here in Sabah. Or else, I'll get it online from them and ask them to send it here. Hehehhe...
