Gratitude Practice

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” 
Eckhart Tolle

Sometime back i got an invitation to a networking and sharing session by one of the most unique law firms in Malaysia, Chur Associates. Operating from an awesome building known as The CAstle, Chur Associates was founded by a fellow alumnus, the extremely colourful and energetic Chris Tan. He’s also earned the title The Maverick Lawyer for his unique approach to a rather bland industry. We’ll talk about Chris and Chur Associates in the near future because this post is not about this amazing lawyer, it is about what changed my life after leaving this session.

Perception

An old friend was having a conversation with me recently about how one of the best decisions he ever made was to sell his Porsche and buy a Honda Jazz. And no, he has not suffered any loss in income, in fact his business is booming. In that same conversation he talked about a guy he met recently who was just starting his business and was adamant on buying a Mercedes. His justification was that because he was starting up he needed the ‘image’, and my dear friend who has been in business for years tried hard to convince him not to jump into that trap. The conversation struck a chord with me because i’ve gone and made such decisions, hence been on both sides of that fence.

Start

Thats the key word to anything in life.

For years people have told me that i’ve always had an opinion on things, voicing my thoughts where they weren’t needed or speaking my mind when it was not necessary. I had an opinion on each one of those people too…

Then the high wave i was riding finally crashed and like a surfer hitting the corals, it hit me in the face. Happiness was a result of being mindful, being consciously in control of your thoughts. Like the great Gandhi said, If your thoughts become your words, and your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny then that path i was on was definitely not the destiny i had in mind. I made and continuously make an effort to consciously control my thoughts through active gratitude practice, meditation and what has been most effective for me; positive reframing. Having pulled through (still not over) a tough period of my life, i’ve been able to confront my fears, address issues i once kept mum about, seek help when needed, and refocus my life and business.

A leopard can’t change its spots. I still have opinions albeit this time round they are no longer opinions but just me being transparent in sharing what i’ve gone through in life and business.

So here’s the start of me sharing my experiences and knowledge about the ups and downs of being an entrepreneur, life teachings, wins & lessons in business, importance of culture & the team, and most importantly staying happy. Methods and practices shared here in this blog are not the best nor are they roadmaps for success, merely me sharing my experience, what worked and what didn’t in hopes of helping others find their own ways.
