Sometimes, when decisions are made, a huge gamble is taken. When the decision is close to personal, the gamble becomes even more electrifying and dangerous.
Well, I regard myself as a planner. I plan in advance, consider as much angles as I can of a situation, and when I have decided… there is close to no turning back. Daniel Doughty of Borneo Colours said I was very analytical. Not sure if that’s true, but that’s what he said a few years ago.
So when someone comes up to me and proposes and idea, I tend to pause while I think of the benefits and disadvantages, and probably would start to question that very idea and request for more information. It goes to the extend that I sometimes offer them less than what they ask for because I think it’s better to aim low, and get more than aim high, but get less. After all, who says that when you aim low, you’ll not go all out?
Anyway, I’m just glad that along the way of my life, I get to see those around me living their life with a happy heart, and getting their dreams alive because at the end of the day, the world is not all about me, but is about how those around me can be happy. I only wish some could return the favor, but I’m not holding my breath anytime soon.
I’m still hanging in there, and still searching for whatever I am searching for… but one thing’s for sure, it ain’t fame…
How I wish those gunning for seats in the Parliament will stop thinking of fame, and start doing something for the people which actually voted for them, because fame means nothing when you actually did nothing at all.
With that said, maybe some of you would like to ponder over these words I have to say:
“YOU MAY THINK IT’S A COINCIDENCE, BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT IT’S A PLAN WHICH WORKED BEAUTIFULLY TOWARDS YOUR BENEFIT AND NOT MINE“.
Political leaders should stop thinking about themselves, and start thinking of a plan on how things will work out for the people, and not themselves.
yeah… #IHEARTBORNEO …. now that’s a good thing to embrace.
I speak well in riddles…
I think most people who sought after fame, may or may not have done it intentionally. Those who actually were desperate for recognition, could end up unknowingly searching for fame, and get obsessed by it.
I think deep inside everyone, we want to be loved, and we want our presence to be acknowledged. Everything should be harmless, until human greed and lust come play along.
In the midst of whatever we do, I strongly believe humility is important. A dying trait, I believe, but those who possess humility, are those I respect and admire the most.
