Taking a photo of yourself is nothing new. It's a great way to show your friends where you're at or where you're headed. It captures a great moment for you to look back on.
This selfie though brings a whole new different meaning to me...
Sometimes the most meaningful moments of self realization happens during the most random circumstances. I was at an event here in Singapore when I took it, in my aloneness - it hit me. That amidst the challenges and adversities that attempted to dismantle my resolve and confidence I held my ground. Last year I lost 2 of my companies, both were so close to my heart.
NOW I fully understand that the most important things in my life CAN NEVER BE TAKEN AWAY.
- My lifetime's worth of knowledge and experience.
- My vast network and customers who I still keep in touch with, because it goes beyond business, they are who I consider family in a way.
- My team of creative and relentless individuals who share my vision of success.
- Those who believe in me as a person and place faith in my capabilities.
They cannot be measured in bankbooks or properties, they may not be sources of short self gratification but these are what I call treasures of the soul. They are embedded within me and are integral to where I'm headed. Of course, the past will always be crucial to my destination but I'm looking forward to the future with them on my side.
