I eliminate comparison from my thoughts.

I have confidence in who I am. In every situation I face, I strive to give the very best I have to give. My self-confidence stems from knowing that I am created with unique talents for a specific purpose.

My calling in life is different from others. My unique set of strengths enables me to achieve my purpose. I am equipped to manage my life successfully. That is why I only try to live my life and refrain from coveting the path someone else is traveling.

When I keep my eyes on the road ahead, I am able to move forward. I stay in my line at all times because shifting my focus, even for a second, may cause me to fall.

I am free from the need to measure myself up to the standards of others because I have my own set of standards. As long as I am working hard and taking care of my responsibilities, what others are doing is irrelevant to me.

I eradicate comparison from my thoughts by choosing to accept that life comes in seasons. I embrace the season in which I find myself because it is part of my journey.

We are all in different seasons of life and each season plays out differently for each individual. Through this season, I choose to live my life to the fullest. I accept myself with all of my imperfections and learn to be happy where I am.

Today, I choose to keep my eyes fixed on my goals. I push aside insecurity by loving myself just the way I am.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. When was the last time my eyes wandered into someone else’s race?
2. Why is it important for me to only measure myself against my own standards?
3. How is comparison detrimental to my mind?


I focus on the people who love me.

Photo by pierofix
My life is full of people who love me and want what is best for me. Instead of worrying about negative people, I devote my time and attention to those who are a positive influence in my life.

I know there are people I can call when I need to talk. I am blessed with friends who lend a listening ear and are quick to speak the truth when I am in need. I appreciate the people who are always there to encourage me when I need them.

I have friends and family who rejoice with me when I celebrate a success. I seek to be around these friends because success is sweeter when shared. I let go of concern over people who choose to envy me, rather than support me.

When I embark on a new risk, I hear the voices of my loved ones cheering me on in my thoughts. I hear them say they believe in me and I shut out negative voices from my mind.

There is no room in my thoughts for people who dislike me. I do what I can to live in harmony with others, but I understand there are people who are difficult to please. I relinquish my desire to please critical people.

I stay away from negative people to keep my spirit uplifted. I refuse to allow critical people to bring me down. As long as I know I have done my best, I am at peace with myself.

Today, I choose to be thankful for the people in my life who are true friends. As I reflect on my life, I remind myself how much I matter to those who love me.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Who are my encouraging friends?
2. Am I thankful for my friends?
3. How can I retrain my brain to block out the comments of critical people?


I know I can reach my goals.

Photo by Yves.
My goals are important, and they matter to me. I set them realistically, and I meet them because I am committed to them. My mindset is one of success. I am strong and reach every goal I set because I have the ability and dedication to do so.

I am a successful person. Things are not always perfect, but I keep working at them until they become what I expect and want them to be. I refuse to see giving up or quitting as an option. I see only good things like success, peace, and joy in my life.

I reap what I sow, and I sow joy, success and strength. My goals are within my grasp. Each day, I see them getting closer. It is only a matter of time before I achieve my goals because I continue to work and persevere.

As I reach my goals, I set new ones, so I always have something worth working for. My goals hold my interest and I see the value in them.

My goals help me take charge of my life. I do things that matter. Through helping others strengthen themselves and reach their goals, I see my own improvement. That is much of what makes me successful.

Today, I feel confident that my goals are within reach and I take action to make them happen.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. How can I work toward meeting my goals more quickly?
2. What should I do to keep my goals in perspective?
3. Why is it so important that I set and work toward my goals?


I am who I am when no one is watching.

The true definition of who I am is determined by my actions in the absence of others. Who I am when no one is watching speaks volumes about the true intentions of my heart.

To be honest with others, I must first be true to myself. Therefore, the image I portray in front of others is the same that exists behind closed doors. What I say, what I do, and what I think remains unchanged when I am by myself.

A life lived with transparency brings honor to me. Integrity causes me to enjoy a life free from secrets and shame. My trustworthiness has won the respect of many others.

I act the same in front of others as I do when I am on my own because I have nothing to hide. I am at peace with who I am without needing the approval of others. Loving myself frees me to live life unconcerned about others’ negative opinions.

My friends learn to be true to themselves by watching my example. What I preach publicly, I practice privately in my home. My character is reflected by my private actions even more than by what I do in front of others.

I practice transparency because my values demand that I govern myself accordingly. By being crystal clear, I eliminate the stress, distractions, and negativity that accompany a life of deception.

Today, I choose to be honest with others and myself by living a single life. I am who I am when no one is watching because I live for myself and not to please others.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Is my life the same privately and publicly?
2. Do I practice what I preach?
3. Are my values reflected in my actions?


I can overcome any challenge on my journey to victory.

On my journey to victory, I can overcome any challenge that is set before me like a mountain standing in my way. Armed with courage I push myself to climb as far as it takes to get to the other side. I press on because victory awaits me at the top, but only if I persevere.

To know the road ahead, ask those coming back. - Chinese Proverb

To know the road ahead, ask those coming back. - Chinese Proverb

Determination is what makes me an invincible force throughout the journey. Regardless of what I see around me, above me, or even below me, I am determined to finish what I have started because it is my promise to myself.

I put on the gloves of persistence in order to firmly grip the side of the mountain so I can stay the course. One step at a time, I press on in my walk no matter what tries to get in my way. Even when inclement weather slows my pace, I continue to press on. Life is not about how fast I travel, but about enjoying the journey to my destiny.

I am strong and courageous enough to confront challenges head on. My passion drives me forward in spite of challenges. I am confident that my abilities are greater than whatever trials I my face. I know that I can overcome challenges with grace and poise when I walk with self-assurance.

Today, I choose not to simply face challenges, but to embrace them as opportunities to soar.  I am climbing higher than ever before, certain that I will reach the top where I will give a shout of victory.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. What is the force that drives me?
2. How can challenges make me stronger?
3. Why must I push myself to persevere?


I live a life filled with clear priorities.

I strive to clarify my priorities and let these guide me in my thoughts, words, actions, and decisions. This brings me a joyous life because I know I am focused on what is most important to my loved ones and myself.

When my thoughts are focused on my priorities, conflicting emotions of the moment pale in comparison to the big picture. This keeps frustrations and disagreements at bay in my relationships.

If my spouse does something irritating, I remind myself why I love her so much and the irritant no longer bothers me! I think, “If this is the worst she has, then how lucky am I?”

My words reflect my priorities. They are always encouraging and supportive. Even when I feel anger, my conversations are calm as I strive to find a solution to the situation.

At work, my conversations are productive and conducive to building a pleasant working environment.

My actions are based on my priorities, too. I plan my schedule and my to-do list according to what is most important, leaving plenty of wiggle room to enable me to attend to anything important that comes up. This way, my days are always productive.

I allow my priorities to guide my decisions. This gives me confidence to forge ahead with whatever I decide because I always know the decision is the right one for me when it is based on what is most important in my life.

Today, I choose to reflect on my priorities so I can be confident that I am focusing on what is most important to me, rather than the daily distractions.

Self-Reflections Questions:

1. Who is most important to me? Do I show this in the way I treat them every day?
2. What are my most important goals?
3. Am I considering an important decision? How can I let my priorities guide me?


Rebecca Fine and “The Science of Getting Rich”

Mindset of Abundance vs. Mindset of Lack and Poverty

The “Science of Getting Rich” is a book written by Wallace D. Wattles in 1910. This book tells the reader that there is a scientific way of getting rich. First and foremost, he told us that all humans long to live life abundantly – physically, emotionally, intellectually, financially and in all aspects of life. To live life in anyway in short of what life has to offer in all its fullness is not the will of the creator.

He taught us the right mindset towards being rich is a mindset of abundance. The mindset that most of us have towards riches is one of poverty and lack – there is not enough to go round for anyone. If someone else has more, then I will have less if not, none. Consequently, we compete and undermine others in the attempt to gather more for ourselves. This mindset drives us in the wrong methods of gathering wealth as well as to perceive riches as evil. Wallace D. Wattles taught us in the book, “The Science of Getting Rich” to have a wholesome thought of blessing others. If we are a merchant, then we should always think of delivering not just the best of our products and services to our clients but in excess of what our clients pay us for. Contrary to traditional views of sacrificing oneself for the sake of others, Wallace D. Wattles does not advocate that line of thinking as that comes from a perspective of lack and poverty. To bless others, one must be living in abundance and it is through living in abundance that one can truly bless others and bring riches to them. The way to truly bless the poor is to make them rich.

Wallace D. Wattles – The Author

Wallace D. Wattles was a man who lived during the war of the states in the mid 1800s. His life was full of failures until he realized the principles of getting rich. He put the principles he came to understand into practice and he began to see riches and success abounding in his life. He put these principles down into his book, “The Science of Getting Rich” which he had put into practice in his life.

Rebecca Fine & The Science of Getting Rich Network

This book is not a book that is based on philosophy but on practicality. The book goes on to teach the reader how to become rich by following principles of getting rich. Not only have these principles brought Wallace D. Wattles prosperity and success, whoever have read this book and put its principles to practice has experienced the same blessing of riches. Such a person is Rebecca Fine. She was in the network marketing business but she did not see much success in her business until she came across the book, “The Science of Getting Rich” by Walace D. Wattles. The book changed her thinking and she shared it with her network marketing business partner. In just a few months, she began to prosper in her business and became top earners in her business. Since then, Rebecca Fine has been sharing the principles she learned from “The Science of Getting Rich” to many people and she distributed this book for free. She has also formed a Science of Getting Rich Network.

From Where Does Personal Development Begin?

Jacklyn Ker & Stuart Tan

Jacklyn Ker & Stuart Tan

First the heart

Where does personal development begin in a person? It begins first in the heart, then in the mind. It begins with a desire in the heart. My friend Jacklyn Ker was a lupus patient for many years. Her condition had worsened and developed into many complications to a point that she needed dialysis. In her despair, she attempted suicide several times. One day when Jacklyn woke up on the hospital bed, she determined in her heart that she would improve on her attitude. She decided to snap out of her despair. Instead of being a burden on her family, she began supporting herself by becoming a cab driver. Her cheerful and positive attitude eventually caused a miracle to take place in her body. Today she is a healthy person, financially independent and a Jade Ambassador of a network marketing company.

Personal Development is meant to be personal

I used to snuff at personal development, particularly when it was shoved down my throat. How do you like having people come to you and say, “Do this! Follow these seven steps and be a better person. Write down your goals and action plans and show it to me. From now on, you are to commit yourself to achieving these goals.” Everyday at work, your boss set departmental goals. You are asked to set your personal goals and action plans. List down the courses you plan to attend. Clock up a hundred hours worth of courses in a year. At the end of the year, neither you nor your department achieved its goals. Work review is nothing more than a fault finding session and you are threatened to work harder than you should.

Jacklyn Ker

Jacklyn Ker

The problem here is that these goals are not mine to begin with. I have absolutely no desire to achieve them. You can dream up any goals, write them down, pin it up on your bedroom walls and stare at them everyday and it is not going to change a thing. If you examine deep down inside yourself, are you serious about it? Do you really want it? Unless you want it, you are not going to achieve it because you are absolutely not going to do anything towards achieving it. Unless you desire it, you are not going to have it.

Then the mind

After you have desired it in your heart, the transformation will next take place in your mind – your thinking. The world’s number one bestseller is the Bible. The number two bestseller is an old book written by a man called Napoleon Hill. The book is entitled “Think and Grow Rich”. Years ago when I read the title, “Think and Grow Rich”, I thought the author meant that I should start imagining that I am rich and then I will become rich. That was why I held a certain cynical attitude towards the book even before I read it because I thought that the idea was silly. But with more understanding today, I have now realized that the word “Think” in the title of the book refers to changing your thinking. A man with a poverty mindset cannot become rich but remain poor. To become rich, you must think differently. Warren Buffet thinks differently from most of the stock market investors. He buys when others sell and sells when others buy.


You cannot change until your thinking change. You do not take action because of your fear of taking risk and you like the comfort of being where you are even if you are feeling miserable. At least it is familiar evil that you are comfortable with. But when your thinking changes, you will begin moving forward and do what you usually would not have. And your future and destiny will also change.

So begin today by looking down in your heart where your desire resides and change a whole new mindset up in your head. Just as what Johnny Wimbrey says, “Are you willing to do today what others don’t to have tomorrow what others won’t.


What is Personal Development?

Stuart Tan (Adam Khoo's business partner)

Stuart Tan (Adam Khoo's business partner)

First, let me put forth my disclaimer here. This is just a simple article addressed to simple laymen sharing what I understand and believe about personal development and what it has done for me and what I have seen how it has helped other people to become successful. It is not meant to be definitive on what personal development is about.

Simply put, personal development is about educating and training a person to bring out the best in an individual to manage one’s life better. There are many personal development training companies that charge exorbitant fees for a training workshop that last just a few hours to a few days. Personally, I have attended a 5-day workshop that cost me $1000. The personal development industry is a multi-billion dollar industry and professional training for personal development does not come cheap. Famous personal development coaches are paid several thousand dollars an hour just to give a speech.

So what does personal development encompass? There are several aspects to personal development training. First of all, personal development can be an umbrella term that refers to any discipline dealing with a person’s inward issues dealing with emotions, personal discipline, personal philosophies, life perspectives, etc. just to name a few. Some other personal development trainings focus on more specific areas such as communicating with others, building and maintaining relationships, time management, financial management, wealth creation, health and fitness, etc.

Why Personal Development?

I believe that as you grew up from a child studying in a school to an adult working at your job, you’ve come across classmates and colleagues who stood out from the crowd in some areas of their life. You may have classmates who excelled in their studies and won awards and scholarships with ease while you struggled just to keep in pace with your academic work. Some peers kept high profiles. They are not only presidents of clubs and societies, but also captains of their respective sports and they still managed to ace their exams. Perhaps it is a colleague who gets along well with almost anybody and a magnet to members of the opposite sex. May be it is another colleague who always tops his sales and is promoted way ahead of everyone else.

It is no secret that these people who are very real in our everyday lives possess talents and qualities that we do not. Things we tend to struggle with seem to come naturally to them. This is because they have skills that we do not possess. Some of these skills are natural to them (talent) while some may be developed.

The classmate of yours who is a scholar certainly possessed study skills and memory skills that most of your classmates and you did not possess. And I believe he was able to read his books much faster than you could. If he managed many other profiles such as presidents or captains, he certainly knew how to manage his time well and possessed leadership skills as well.

How Does Personal Development Work?

The good news is that we may not be as good as these successful people who live among us but we can become as good as they are or even better through personal development. In personal development, we simply analyze the skills that these people possess and we learn to develop these skills for ourselves by imitating them in order to be as good as they are. What were not natural to us, we can always develop through a conscious effort if only we have the determination and desire to achieve followed by massive, consistent actions. Yes, I said, “massive, consistent actions.” You are trying to overcome and undo those habits, personal traits, belief system, emotions and life philosophies that you have been believing and practicing as long as you have lived that have hindered you from being successful. It is not going to change overnight just by reading a book or listening to a message.

Matt Morris, the founder of Success University, was such an example when he immersed himself into the study of Personal Development and rose above his situation of being homeless and in debt to become a self-made millionaire. In his own words, he quoted Tony Robbins saying, “If you want to achieve success, find someone else who has done it, figure out how they did it, do the same thing and you get the same results.”

So does Personal Development really work? The proof in the pudding is in the eating. However, practicing personal development is not just eating a pudding. It is like taking constant medication taken over a period of time in order for the healing to manifest. You do not take your medication for one day and decided that the medicine does not work just because you do not get well immediately. Many of today’s famous personal development coaches were once defeated in life such as Matt Morris, Johnny Wimbrey and Les Brown. In Singapore, there is a man named Adam Khoo who was a total academic failure. In his teens, he attended a workshop on studying skills and together with his determination to prove his personal worth, he became one of the top students in his secondary school and university. He then wrote a book entitled, “I am Gifted, So are You!
” in which he shared the skills he had learned and applied that have turned his failures into success. Adam Khoo firmly believed that what he has achieved through his training and practice, others can too. Today, Adam Khoo has become a young self-made millionaire. Together with his friends, Stuart Tan and Patrick Cheo, they have built Adam Khoo Learning Technologies Group (AKLTG) teaching and training children and teenager who have self-esteem issues and challenged in their academic performance.

Take Action Today!

The ball is in your court. You can choose to take actions and transform your life or you can choose to be cynical, skeptical and critical and live the rest of your life the way it has always been.


Johnny Wimbrey – Personal Development Coach

Are you willing to do today what others don’t to have tomorrow what others won’t.

People who take risk understands that taking risk requires only a moment, while not taking risk becomes a lifestyle.

Sigmund Freud said that, “You become a product of your environment.” But that is if you choose to allow yourself to become a product of your environment. The You-Factor is you choose what you want to do.

Who is Johnny Wimbrey?

These are some of Johnny Wimbrey’s signature statements. In my first article on Life Coaches (Personal Development Coaches), I introduced Matt Morris, the founder of Success University. In this second article on Life Coach (Personal Development Coach), I am introducing Johnny Wimbrey.

Johnny Wimbrey is a personal development coach cum celebrity who has his own TV program, “The Johnny Wimbrey Show!” He is also a best-selling author, world-renowned motivational speaker and an industry consultant. Johnny Wimbrey was once homeless, living in a battered women’s shelter. Growing up in an environment infested with drugs and violence, he soon became a teenage drug peddler and engaged in gang violence. His turning point came at the age of 18 when his friend was murdered. He was determined to seek revenge for his murdered friend after attending his friend’s funeral carrying a gun with him. During that funeral, he heard the mother of his murdered friend said that she forgave the person who murdered his son. That sentence totally changed Johnny Wimbrey. From then on, Johnny Wimbrey decided that he would not let his past and environment determine his future. Abandoning his past of drugs and violence, he became an insurance agent at the age of 20. Within less than 2 years, Johnny Wimbrey rose through the ranks in the insurance industry where he trained experienced regional managers. With the high demand for Johnny Wimbrey’s service, he decided to use his skills in helping others from industry leaders, celebrities to young people who are struggling to break free from gang violence.

From The Hood To Doing Good

In Johnny Wimbrey’s best-selling book, “From The Hood To Doing Good”, he related his life story and taught on the principles on how you can decide to be a winner in life and not let your environment determines your future. The word “HOOD” in the book title is actually an acronym for “Hazardous Obstacles Of Destructions”. In this book, Johnny Wimbrey teaches you how to learn to be successful from inside out; and that success is happy from the inside out, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and financially. Even if you are broke, you can get it again if you have success on the inside of you.

He soon joined Success University in 2005. Today, Johnny Wimbrey is one of the highest ranking representatives cum trainer in Success University and is among the world’s top 1% income earner.

In the third video, Johnny Wimbrey talked about the people who has influenced him and impacted his life whom he looked up to, such as his teachers and personal devleopment coach, Les Brown, etc. He always have the attitude of a student who wants to learn from anybody. He will never try to outshine somebody else in their own show. At the end of the show, Johnny Wimbrey delivers his signature statements.

Where you come from has nothing from where you’re going. Who you are on the outside will never determine who you are on the inside. But who you are on the inside will determine what you are on the outside. Winning begins on the inside out. You can win if you attached the 3 things “WIN” – Willing, take Initiative and the attitude that you’ll Never give up.

Are you willing to do today what others don’t, to have tomorrow what others won’t.

Some other people’s mentality don’t have to become your reality.

The first impression is the lasting impression.

Adversity causes some people to break while others become record breaker.

Decision and choices I make has made my mess, my message.

Your past does not have to determine your future and where you come from does not have to dictate where you’re going.

ENJOY the lecture!


Matt Morris and Success University/World Ventures

Matt Morris’ parents divorced when he was 4 years old. A year later, his father broke into his mother’s home and murdered her mother’s boy friend and ended up in jail. At the age of 13, his father committed suicide. That was Matt Morris’ childhood.

At the age of 21, Matt Morris was $30,000 in debt and jobless. He was homeless and lived in his car, taking shower in the rain and petrol kiosk wash room. His turning point came when he listened to a Tony Robbins’ cassette tape. He decided to immerse himself in Personal Development. For 8 hours a day, he would study any subjects in Personal Development. Quoting Tony Robbins, he said, “If you want to be successful, study what successful people have done and imitate what they do.”

From then on to the age of 24, Matt Morris turned from being $30,000 in debt to earning $100,000 a year. From the age of 24 to 29, Matt Morris became a self-made millionaire and founded his own network marketing company, Success University.

Watch the Fox Channel news broadcast on Matt Morris, the President cum CEO of Success University.

Success University is an online network marketing company that provides e-books, online audio streaming and online video streaming on the subject of Personal Development by dozens of Personal Development coaches such as Zig Ziglar, Les Brown, Brian Tracy, Johnny Wimbrey, Jim Rohn, etc. Within 3 years, Success University has grown to a 100,000 members company globally.

Watch the video below on Success University.

On the 1 June 2009, Success University has merged with one of the biggest network marketing company on Travel Industry, World Ventures. This is a marriage between a multi-billion dollar Personal Development Industry with a 7 trillion dollar Travel Industry.

The following 2 videos are from the WORLD VENTURES 2008 National Convention.

Watch the World Ventures presentation of their products: Dream Trip and Leisure Travel Consultancy.

Success University now offers you the best of both worlds. You have a 24 hours a day, seven days a week website where you can access your learning resources on Personal Development. Now, you can also begin earning commissions selling vacation packages to people without having to have enough capital to set up your own travel company.

Now perhaps you do not believe in the travel industry and you do not believe in network marketing company. But I believe that you do believe that Warren Buffet is the world greatest investor (at least a great investor even if you do not believe that too). In 2003, Warren Buffet bought over a network marketing company called “The Pampered Chef”. Seems like Warren Buffet believes in network marketing company which opposes what many people believe. Bill Gates founded the No. 1 travel site in the world. Donald Trump started in 2006 his own travel website. Steve Case, founder of AOL, is now a chairman of a luxury travel company with holdings in excess of 1 million dollars. If such successful people believe and have invested into the travel industry, do you still have any doubt?


I enjoy sharing my joy with others.

Lakesong Main View
I have so much joy in my life that I want to ensure others have joy as well. I like to share my happiness with the people around me. So much in life is wonderful, and I appreciate all the little things that make me happy, bring on laughter, or give me peace and tranquility.

Joy is contagious. I smile at people when I see them, so they know I appreciate them. I thank others for doing kind things for me. I help people when I see that they are down, so they can find more joy in their lives.

I like to give my joy away. I always have enough to fill my cup and still share with others. When I give joy away, I get even more to take its place. It’s fun to give my joy to others and see their reactions. It’s nice to see that I can make people happy.

I always find something to be joyful about. Even in challenging circumstances, I refuse to allow them to dictate whether I am happy. I have joy, even in the midst of trouble, because being happy and staying peaceful matters to me.

When I have joy in my life, I always feel fulfilled. By giving joy to others, I receive even more joy and find more fulfillment. I make it my mission to spread joy to others, so I can make them happy and bring extra happiness and peace to myself as well.

Today, I freely give my joy away to others, knowing I always get back what I give.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. How can I share my joy with other people?
2. What is the best way for me to have more happiness?
3. What should I do to cultivate joy in the world?


I am strong and capable of doing anything I desire.

Wish of life
Photo by occhiovivo
My strength is important to me. Physical strength matters, but emotional and mental strength mean more, and I am strong emotionally and mentally.

I do anything I need and want to do. I accomplish my goals and dreams easily because I know my abilities.

Whatever I set my mind to, I accomplish. Good things come my way naturally because I expect them to. I know I have what it takes. I welcome my destiny and expect success.

I think only of success, strength, joy, and the things I want in my life. By focusing on what I do well, I increase my chances of being successful. I see where I want to go in life, and I move toward it. I know I can reach my goal because I refuse to give up.

Each day I get closer to my goals. I have good plans for the future and I maintain hope and excitement about what I can do with my life.

I start fresh each day, and avoid waiting for the right moment to come along. Every moment is the right moment for hope.

In my mind, I see my goals completed. I see myself achieving my goals and making my dreams come true. I see my plans fulfilled and I am happy that I have the strength to bring great things into my life.

Today, I use my strength and capabilities to move closer to my goals and dreams.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. How do I use my strengths to reach my goal?
2. What capabilities are most important to me?
3. In what areas can I improve my strength and skills?
