4) Know what they want. Know what to do. Do with a lot of action.

The 4th category of people will achieve great Success in their lives and Live their Dreams.


Planning for Retirement is something that is Very Important but Not Urgent.
Many of us are too caught up with fire-fighting and doing the urgent things like running errands, hitting deadlines, organising birthday parties or indulging in non-urgent, non-important activities like watching a movie or going for parties. All our time is taken away and we neglect the important things like planning for passive source of income when we retire, building meaningful relationships and taking care of our health.
We don't bother with these Very Important but Not Urgent things as we are not "burnt" yet. We think we're still young or we ignore it as we have no solution.
Allocate some time to Plan for Your Retirement, or else you will have No Security in future.

6 Tips to Prepare Yourself for a Good Year

1) Make sure you do the right thing to get you to where you want to go.
As Stephen Covey says, "Begin with the end in mind."
Where do you want to see yourself by the end of this year?
If you were to continue working for people, can you get the life you want?

2) Do the right thing, right
Do all the activities well and whole-heartedly. Nurture until it gives you the result you want.

3) Develop yourself
Make yourself valuable. Many jobs will become redundant as technology takes over.
Also, as you age, your values/use to the society will depreciate.
Invest in yourself - skills, knowledge, personality.

4) Plan your finances
Live below your means and live in moderation. Don't go overboard. Force yourself to do savings.

5) Give
Donate to charities. Start giving even when you don't earn a lot. Give more when you can afford more.

6) Do all things with good intention and love
Enjoy inner peace, joy and contentment. Be thankful for all the blessings, big and small, that you have everyday.


I'm sure all of you want to live a successful life right? But what is the definition of success? Most of us equate Money with success, meaning if you can make a lot of money and be very rich, it means  you're very successful. I also used to think like that, until I met a friend who shared with me what is actually the true meaning of success. It totally change my perception of success.
A truly successful person is one who has Money + Time + Health simultaneously.
This means you can earn a lot of Money, and have a lot of Time to enjoy the money you earn, and also have a Healthy body to enjoy your life.
