Movie Review: Eddie the Eagle

This movie was recommended to me by my brother. In a way, it is inspiring to see how Eddie dedicated his life (from the age of 10) to one goal - participate in the Olympics.

Parents are supposed to support their children and help them achieve their dream, however, looking at what Eddie, that dream was clearly impossible. At first it was cute, dressing up and going out in the middle of the night heading towards the “Olympics”. I guess it is not that bad then, but if my children were to do that I would go crazy and immediately ground them. The world is not safe for a 10 year old to go out into the street on his own.
As he grew up, he started trying different kinds of sports and it was obvious that he is not your typical sportsman - he was bad in almost everything he tried.
At the end, he settled upon ski jumping - a sport that no one from his country participates (but used to). This is something I can relate to - join an activity where there is little interest and you can be a leader with …

Inspiring Manga and Anime

I came across some inspiring animes and manga and thought of sharing them here.
Naruto is an anime about a boy who was treated as an outcast in his village. The villagers avoided him and prevented other children from playing with him. In a world where only the strongest and most powerful fighter is respected, he was looked down for his lack of skill. Naruto had a dream to become the head (Hokage) of his village and used this dream to overcome all challenges and obstacles. His tenacity helped him overcome obstacles and along the way he inspired others. He was able to overcome his weaknesses and defeat enemies stronger than him and in some cases made them his friends.

It was followed by Naruto: Shippuden which follows his challenges as an adult. I did not like the later episodes which appear to repeat earlier stories.

Power of Money, By Adam Khoo

A friend shared this with me more than a year ago, I thought I would place it here to share it with others.

Power of Money, By Adam Khoo
( Singapore 's youngest millionaire at 26 yrs.)

Some of you may already know that I travel around the region pretty frequently, having to visit and conduct seminars at my offices in Malaysia , Indonesia , Thailand and Suzhou ( China ). I am in the airport almost every other week so I get to bump into many people who have attended my seminars or have read my books.

Recently, someone came up to me on a plane to KL and looked rather shocked.He asked, 'How come a millionaire like you is traveling economy?' My reply was, 'That's why I am a millionaire. ' He still looked pretty confused.

This again confirms that greatest lie ever told about wealth(which I wrote about in my latest book 'Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires' ). Many people have been brainwashed to think that millionaires …
