Five Things I’ve Learned to Become Successful in Life by Patric Chan

Another month has passed and life continues to grow towards what you want or the other way round.

Did you set a goal early this year? Well, did you get what you want by now – after so many months of working hard for it? Apparently, most people don’t and that’s the problem with setting goals.

We cannot be setting goals with the intention of trying to get what we want because that will become a chasing game which will wear you out. Maybe not for you, but I know I will when I’m chasing ‘something’. The goal must be a part of us. My goal is to become who I want and where I want to be mentally and physically.

Your goals must be something that you achieve internally so that you can see it, taste it, smell it and feel it.

Wealth. Love. Connection. Knowledge. Experience.

If you were to evaluate what’s success, it boils down to being happy.

I’m not trying to play Zen Master here but to make a point how we make our lives complicated without understanding the true purpose of our action. Life doesn’t have to be that way.

There are a few things I’ve learned from observations and experiencing this year and I’m glad to share them with you today. Who knows, they may give you a shortcut for your journey to obtain the success you’re seeking…

i. Your mind attracts what you want. This year, I have my fair share of enjoying successes and experiencing setbacks in life. And when I sit back to think about it, they come in ‘sequences’. Once I’ve gained success, I’ll have the momentum to get another one. When I failed and stay in that state, another failure will come again. I don’t know, some called it Law of Attraction. To me, I strongly believe that you get what you want based on what your mind thinks because it ‘attracts’.

ii. There’s one time Grandma falls sick and stayed in the hospital for couple of days. When I visited her in the hospital, I felt blessed that she’s still in this beautiful world. Although it’s nothing serious, but my heart tells me one thing- nothing in this world will give me the same love and relationship I have with her.

There are only two factors that will remove your love and relationship with someone you care about- when he/she is no longer here or you have ignored the treasure you have today for something that is less valuable but perceived to be valuable. Let me warn you– once they’re gone, they’re gone. You should know who to call, hug or kiss by now.

iii. Know your roots. If you’re successful today, you’re probably once a ‘nobody’. Always be humble because it will give you more success in life. I mean, isn’t that how you got to where you are today? Knowing your roots also means remembering those who have supported you when you’re growing and stayed by your side through thin and thickness. They are just there because they want to be there for you with no other hidden expectations.

iv. Explore life like there’s no ending. Listen to new music. Visit new places. Eat at new restaurants. Play new sports. Meet new people. And an endless list of things you can do regardless of whether you’re wealthy or not. You see, money doesn’t stop you from exploring life. Obviously, you can’t do the many things that Bill Gates or Richard Branson can do but there are easily hundreds of things you can do with what you have today. Do you know why we live? I don’t have the answer but I’m 100% sure it’s not to work and whine about what we don’t have.

v. Life is great. As I’m writing this, I’m in my new condominium with nice yellow lightings, listening to a wonderful music and my wife is making a cup of coffee for me. I can feel the cool breeze coming in from the balcony while sitting on a soft brand new, purple sofa. In front of me, I can see a mirror- and when I looked deep; I thank God for giving me this amazing life. Not because my Ego’s saying I have an amazing life, but it’s really true.

You have an amazing life whether you want to admit it or not. There are people sleeping on the streets today, wandering to look for food and so on. Because you’re reading this, I dare to assume that you have a computer- which also means that you’re under a roof and are an educated person. You have eyes to read and a wonderful brain to think. For that, life is already great. The rest are bonuses.

Some might complain about being financially broke. You can be broke but you can never be poor because being broke is a temporarily state that can be changed. It might not be now but with sheer persistence and effort combined with using the right information and a willingness to take action, it’s just a matter of time before you look back satisfied and said, “I was once broke but now, I’m wealthy and living the life I’ve always wanted.” Does that sound good? Then, why not make it a reality because you can.

Nothing is Perfect

Correct me if I’m wrong… nothing is perfect.

This is not any negative thinking but a good discovery from my own experiences.

Why I said “Nothing is perfect”?

Here’s the story why…

Recently I was so busy on creating product, designing a new website, integrating software and so on. During the work, I was so busy on making everything perfect. At the end of the day, everything were delayed to get done.

Even though I have make a better one, but still can’t really satisfied the work. This is really bad!

Project deadline is there and I have to deliver the product even though I’m not really satisfied the work. After a few days, I’m look back my work performance and progress. I found out that I shouldn’t trying to make things perfect because there’s no such thing ‘perfect’ in this world.

There’s no perfect product in the marketplace. We can only improve the product and make it better from time to time. So if I’m going to make the product perfect before deliver them, then the product will NEVER release to the public because by the time I thought that product is perfect, there will be a better one on the market.

It’s a NEVER ENDING game. There’s no PERFECT iPhone, iPad, Microsoft Window, Car, Laptop and so on. But they will have a better model and version from time to time. Don’t you agree with that?

I learned something from my mistake.

If the product already good, deliver it first and improve it later, make a better one later. Otherwise the ball will never get rolling. You will waste all the money, time and effort in researching for better product. At the end of the day, you don’t make any money and business fail.

Personally I think the word ‘perfect’ shouldn’t exist because nothing is perfect in this world. (I could be wrong but at least I don’t see anything is perfect for now)

If you’re like me, always trying to make things perfect, you might get the same problem like me. Never get the things done on time. LOL…

Feel free to leave your feedback and I love to know your thought as well.

Thank you!

Getting Things DONE FAST

Have you ever feel that you can’t finish your work and your work performance getting slower?

It could be the Time Management issue. When we failed to manage our time, we will getting tired and feel work overloaded.

We have only 24 hours a day even the richest man in the world. The billionaires and multi-millionaires do not have extra hour a day but they know how to manage their time and leverage.

If you have 10 tasks to be done in a day, probably you can’t make it as one person but you can manage to delegate to other people that can help you out. Otherwise you will not be able to finish the tasks.

Sometimes we are getting slow performance. Like, you can write 500 words article in just 30 minutes previously, but now you take an hour to complete an article. This mean your work performance getting slower and you need to fix it.

“Always track your work performance and quality from time to time.”

You can prepare a checklist and record your best record time. This way, you can compare your current work performance with previous best record. You can see it clearly how you improve your work performance.

Our brain cannot store too many things and cannot remember everything all the time. I knew it, because I always stuck in the middle when someone interrupt me. I need to get a paper or notepad to write down all the things I need to do for today (just like a checklist).

That’s another scenario like this…

When you’re doing something at home and your mother just work over and ask you to buy something at 5pm later. Then you just answer YES. But sooner later you totally forgot what she said just now. Why? Because you never store that task into your brain.

When we’re busy on something and someone talk to us, we will never store anything into our brain of what they’re saying because our brain is concentrating on our work. The best way you can avoid this it… take a notepad and write down the things you need to do and the things that people ask you to do later.

I have written a quick report called “How To Get Things Done FAST With 3 Simple Steps”

Feel free to pass the report to your friends and family to share the tips with them.

Thank you!

Why Average People Remain Average By Patric Chan

If you do what you’re expected to do, don’t expect an outstanding result, my friend.

Study successful people and you’ll sure to discover one thing that many of them would have in common… they live by that words of “always do more than what is expected of you.”

I don’t care. It could be sleeping an hour less everyday to have more time to build your wealth or whatsoever.

Whether you are mowing people’s lawn or someone is mowing your lawn, when you are teaching a seminar or being a participant, or when sharing your knowledge or giving advice to your people, always do or give more than what people expect. Then they will flock around you, they will line up to meet you and be happy to support you in whatever thing that you want to do next.

If you’re training to be a champion, don’t just train like an average player. Train more than you’re expected to train.

If you’re building a multi-level marketing business, increase the numbers of prospects you would like to meet everyday. If it used to be 10, now you would have at least 12. By just increasing your effort 20%, you’ll end up with 60 new prospects a month. Now, that’s what I called exponential.

Trying to win a girl’s heart? I’m not surprise that you could be “competing” with three other guys for the same girl. And you can only win if you’re giving more than all of them if everyone’s equal. I’m not saying giving more money or buying stuff’ give love, time or whatever that counts to her.

Whenever you are interacting with people or in a relationship, treat the other party extremely well.

Whatever is expected of you in that relationship, be it with your girlfriend or business partner or client, your spouse or your friend, always do or give more than what is expected of you in that relationship for that is the secret of making it a success.

It is not that you have to do or give a whole lot more; you have to do just a little bit more than the rest. That’s it. The 10mm-difference is what Anthony Robbins calls it for you to become outstanding… in any undertaking.

To do this, it’s not difficult. But most people are just too lazy to put in the effort. I’m one of them but I’ll always keep reminding myself this’ winner takes all. There is no second place, my friend. I would rather strive with the extra effort to get #1 because the pay off is many times greater.

Do you remember who the second best basketball player is? Nope. You can remember Michael Jordan because he’s #1. In fact, as far as I know, there’s no such place as ‘the second best basketball player’.

Who’s the second fastest runner in the world? Who knows. I just know the #1.

Others have called this ‘more than expected attitude’ as ‘going for the extra mile’. Notice that they don’t say the extra 10 miles.

How come?

Because the average persons don’t bother to do more than what is expected of them. I know it’s sad but that’s the truth.

To most people, “always do more than what is expected of you” are mere words and they don”t put substance to it because people are greedy and they just want to do the bare minimum to make money, to make a profit or whatever.

And guess what… successful people are never your average persons.

To be generous and to treat others extremely well, you must come from the perspective of abundance thinking. Then only “always doing more than what is expected of you” will come easy and naturally.

So the next time you are with somebody, or in a business negotiation, or just interacting with another person, ask how can I help you… without even expecting any return.

As the other saying goes– you have to give, in order to get. In fact, if you want to gather riches you have to be as generous as you can. Touch people’s lives profoundly, in ways that they would never forget. Give it forward… help another and that person will help another. Always do more than what is expected of you. Do this and the reward will come to you 10 folds or 100 folds when you are least expecting it.

Do you think you can do more than what you’re doing today? Of course you can. The question is… DO YOU WANT OR NOT? You’ll have to decide for your own future on that.

Create Your Own Luck

Have you ever blame that you don’t have luck?

Do you know that you can create your own luck if god didn’t give you one?

Although ‘Luck’ will not help you to achieve 100% what you want, but it takes a small percentage on your success.

If you’re a sales person and want to see the manager but you’re stopped by their secretary and give you many B.S. reasons like ‘our manager is too busy and can’t see you’ or ‘our company do not interested on your product’.

You’re stopped at their filter. So you have no luck to pass through.

Create your own luck to reach the manager.

Example: Find out what are the activities that the manager do, like golfing, hiking, swimming and etc. Maybe check what are the places that the manager always go for breakfast, lunch and dinner?

Let say you found out the manager always go to ABC restaurant for dinner. Then you can have the same time to have your dinner too in that restaurant. So when you see the manager arrive at the restaurant, then try your best to have the table near him. Ok, then just act like this:

YOU: Hey, Are you Mr. John from XXX company?
Mr. John: Yes, may I know you before?
YOU: Oh, I’m so lucky meet you here. My name is X X X (try not to intro your company at first but make friend with him)

then the conversation go on… (for building relationship techniques, please refer to your favourite bookstore for the suitable books that can help you on this)

You see, you can create your own luck to meet the person you want but NOT wait for the ‘luck’ to come.

Ok, you must know that sometime you just meet someone in a place that you both do not plan to meet, so it’s called a luck. However, if you really want to meet that person, then you need to create your own luck but not waiting for the luck to come because you won’t know when your luck will come.

If you want to know a girl, that’s the same thing. You need to create your own luck. Never think you can get to know the girl based on your luck to see if both of you will meet again in some where. If you know the girl always go to the gym for exercise, then you can join the gym too to create your luck to meet her again. In this case, you will 100% sure to meet her again without waiting for the luck to come.

Remember, luck is just part of the thing. It may help you to get started or help you to complete the thing.

Nick Vujicic – Never Give Up

Have you ever give up on something when you failed?

I have too but not now after I watched Nick Vujicic’s video and also read the “Think BIG” book by Donald Trump.

One of the chapter inside the book teach us Never Give Up and keep on trying until you success. If you give up, then you will never success. Success belong to those people who never give up.

Maybe you might not fully understand what I mean, so I attached a very touching video below.

As you can see in the video, if Nick give up to stand up, then he will never get up. Even he need to try 100 times or 200 times, and he still need to do it until he can get up. This is same problem what we have encountered in our life. If someone rejected you 100 times, don’t give up! Keep on trying and you will success.

When you keep on trying but still failed, then you must check what you have done wrongly. If method 1 do not work for you, try method 2, method 3, 4, 5, 6 until you found a way to success.

Share this post and video to anyone person you know, friend and family.

What is your plan in 2009?

This question will be asked many times when gathering with friends.

Everybody wanted to know each other plan in 2009 and see if we can work together to achieve the goals. That’s good to share your plan with your friends that who wanted to work together. Sometimes you might need their help to accomplish something.

People are looking for better offer to change their current job. I knew some of my friends have changed their job in 2009 because they got better offer from other company. That’s normal because people always looking for better offer (income).

Know what you want so you will do the right things.

Many people saying that want to make more money and want to be rich. Hello?

If your goal is to make more money, then it’s not your main goal. Why?

Ask yourself a question when you set your goal. “Why I need so many money?”

Okay, so what’s your answer? “The answer will be the real ‘goal’ that you want”

Like, I want to buy a house, car, boat, travel around the world and etc. So you need money to achieve your goal. Make sense? Your goal is not money but other things.

If you just know your goal is money, then you will be like closing your eye to shoot the bird. You will never know where is your target but always try to shoot it.

Open your eye so you can see where is your target.

If you want to buy a house that cost you $100, 000 then your goal target will be $100,000. Right now you’re very clear that you want to achieve $100k so can buy your house.

Draw your plan that will achieve $100k.

There are many way to create your own plan. But I wanted to share with you how I achieve the amount of money that I want.

Here’s the how:

I want to have $10,000. So I will divided $10k into 3 part. Which mean around $3500. From every $3500, I will think what project can help me achieve that $3500. First, I will plan to create a new product to sell online that will help me achieve some quick cash.

Then I will also plan to do some quick investment like stock market. I will also plan to be part time broker for selling car, house and etc.

I don’t do one thing to achieve a goal. I leverage them into a few part. Like my internet business will handle $3500, stock market investment will handle $3500 and misc broker business will handle $3500. Maybe I’m lazy person or can’t take too much pressure on one thing.

Some people will do just one thing to achieve the goal. There’s no right or wrong but you choose the way that you feel more comfortable.

NOTE: If you just make $1000 per month, then do not set your goal to make $10,000 per month right now. You will give up very quickly after a few failure. Try to increase your target by double or triple.

I was so busy to update my blog recently because I’m trying a new tactic on stock investment. After a few tried, the tactic is work so well to have some bonus income. Although the tactic can’t make me rich but it’s low risk and good money to have as bonus. The best part is – it’s a quick cash method. It could be turn into cash within month, week or a few days.

If you want to know this cool tactic on stock investment, subscribe to my marketing blog email notification and you will be notified when the post is available on this blog.

You have your plan or ideas to share? Please post in the comment and let see if we can work together? Thank you!

Missing Step To Start Making Money Online

There are many ebooks and ecourses release every month. The topic could be Affiliate Marketing, Google Adsense, PPC (Pay per click), Selling on eBay, Product Creation and etc.

Don’t buy/ study multiple subject at the same time. If you have already learn about affiliate marketing, then focus on that subject. Don’t go to buy other topic course.

If you’re newbie that didn’t make any money on the internet yet, don’t buy the big package course. You will end up study the course without have the time to take action. I know there are some courses split into monthly issue. Newbie is not recommended to study that kind of courses.

Most people who failed to make money online, usually spend too much time on the courses and study the information. The right way should be 30% theory and 70% practical.

Remember, if you have already purchase some courses and ebooks previously, then stop buying another now. Go back and pick one of the courses/ ebooks that you have bought previously and focus on that topic.

Take action after you have read a few chapters.

Example: You have read how to register a domain name, hosting and setup your own wordpress blog. Go ahead to take action to register the domain name, hosting and setup wordpress blog. Don’t read until sales strategies topic and then start taking action just to register a domain name. It will be too late.

This is also one of the reason why most newbie failed. They complete the whole ecourse then take action to work with them. The right way should learn 30% from the information and then apply them into action.

Hey, there are some “GURUS” ecourse need to take 1 year to complete. Don’t you want to take action in next year? I saw some ecourse split into week1, week2 until week20.

Are you going to wait 20 weeks later to take action?

Remember, 30% study and 70% practical.

Take action, action and action.

Information OVERLOAD In 24 Hours!

I believe most people will have the same thought in their mind. ( once for a while I will be the same )

Today – 15 Feb 2008, after I took my lunch, I went to the book store and looking for business marketing book and some other internet related books. Some of the books title and cover design very attractive and I nearly buy all of them. But lucky my mind told me that I have already bought a lot of books previously and the bad thing is I never read the book until the last page.

The reason is I was attract by those new books. 😉

This is same thing happen on the internet. Many people ( newbie ) have this same problem, they give up the previous course they bought and buy a new courses. I remember last time I received an email from one of my subscriber, and he asked my advise what he should do in order to make money online.

I told him in the email said that “If you’re new to setup the internet business, I suggest you get a complete A-Z course….” and after a few days, he replied to me said that “Sean, the course you recommend to me, I already have previously and I also have several internet courses, ebooks and membership..” but I still failed to make money online.

Guess what? I just replied to him said that “What you need to do is stop reading all of them, just pick one then only concentrate the only one”

We ONLY have 24 hours per day and if you have 3-4 package information waiting for you to study, then where you get extra time to take ACTION? Most of your time have been invested in study the information. Here are an example:

John took 2 courses to study at the same — “Business Marketing” and “Cooking”. After a few weeks later, he was attracted by the graphics design animation, then he decided to take another design course for his interest and want to create his own animation cartoon.

In this case, John will not expert in one of the 3 courses above. Simply because he don’t have extra time to improving 3 of them. After the “Business Marketing” class, then he will need to attend the next “Cooking” class, and so on to the Design class. The whole picture is, John JUST study the information but NOT improving them. Make sense?

Same in today during in the book store, I was attract by the Donald Trump books. But after I think a few times again and again, I decided not to buy the book at this moment because it’s NOT the right time to study the advanced business marketing book right now and it won’t help me much at this moment stage I’m in.

If you’re just a salesperson, the right book need to study is about the sales marketing strategy or any books that related to the marketing. But if you buy some kind of the books like “Business Management”, “Become A Smart Boss”…. then you’re going to waste the money. It’s NOT because the books information not good, but they’re NOT for you at the moment in your stage.

Choose the only one and then concentrate on that, until you achieve certain of level, then move on to the next stage. Just like once you’re able to fully control the Mercedes SLK 200 sport car, then you probably want to move to another stage with Ferrari sport car! LOL
