You don’t need money to life

Yes… You really don’t need any money to be able to life.

Let me explain a bit.
You don’t pay for the air you breathe in.
You don’t pay to ‘unload your stuff’ in the stomach.
You don’t have to pay for food you eat.

Money is only needed for human relationship.

You pay the hospital which provides oxygen for you.
You pay the property owner whose provide toilet for you.
You pay the restaurant, which chef prepare for you.

You pay hospital, property owner, and the chef.
Not the thing to support your life. It just support your life style.

We give money to other people for their work.
(That also how we can get money)

So… actually you can life without money. I hope this can change our opinion about living. We can be creative in this life. When you get the “know how”. You can do and make anything.
And may be… You can make money without money.

Have a beautiful day!!!

How do you define success?

What is success for you?
Do you feel you have succeed or just begin you journey to success?

Many people define success equal lots of money. Other defines it as certain life style. What car you drive, What kind of house you live in, Which travel did you made, What club you join…. etc… etc…

While there is nothing wrong with all stuff above, you get plenty of headaches when you try to become successful person. Just because there are so many definition of success. Every society has their's definition.

To make things easier to understand, I made my own definition.
For me, SUCCESS simply means I HAVE ACHIEVED IT…

Achieved what?
The answer to that question is up to you.
What do you want? What do you think important? What is your desire? What is your passion? In what area do you feel challenge? What things give you most satisfaction?

Those questions will a lead to a Goal. And only after achieving this goal with effort, you will find the success…

May be it’s a certain amount of money, May be it’s a certain kind of relationship, May be it’s a certain level of education… You name it!
It doesn’t matter what your goals are. When you achieved it, you feel succeed.

In modern world today, we equal the meaning of success with millionaire. But for me, success is a very personal thing.

So.. What is your Success?

Have a SUCCESSFUL living for all of you.

Entrepreneur Credo

I do not choose to be a common man,
It is my right to be uncommon… if I can.
I seek opportunity… not security.
I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled, and dulled
By having the state looks after me.
I want to take a calculated risk;
To dream and to build
To fail and to succeed
I refuse to barter incentive for a dole;
I prefer the challenges of life
To guaranteed existence the thrill of fullfilment
To the state calm of utopia.
I will not trade freedom for beneficence
Nor my dignity for a handout.
I will never cower before any master
Nor bend to any master.
It is my heritage to stand erect, proud, and unafraid;
To think and act for my self, to enjoy the benefit of my creations
And to face the world boldly and say:
“This, with God’s help, I have done”.
All this is what it means to be an entrepreneur.

The term “Wealth” is usually used to describe the quantity of a person possession.
A person with lots of private asset called wealthy….

But for me, wealth has broader meaning…

You see a rich person but their marriage destroyed.
You see wonderful person but they lack of health.
You see a strong young man but don’t have any money.
And you don’t want any of this choices.

You want it all…
Rich, happy marriage, children who respect you, liked by many people, good health, strong body, good thought, peace, and all the good things you can thing of.

For me, Wealthy = Happy + Healthy + RICH…

So… Be happy, be healthy, and be rich as you can.


What is Wealth?

“WEALTH” come from the old English word "weal", which means "well-being" or "welfare". This term originally describe the possession of such qualities.

Now days “wealth” means an abundance of items that has economic value, or the state of controlling or possessing such items, including money, real estate and personal property.

The label of wealth is relative and not only varies between societies, but will often vary between different sections or regions in the same society. For example, a personal net worth of US $1,000,000 in most parts of the United States Midwest would certainly place a person among the wealthiest citizens, yet the same net wealth would be considered quite modest on New York City's Upper East Side or in the Connecticut suburbs. However, such amounts would constitute extraordinary wealth in impoverished developing countries.
So individual consider as wealth if he have more assets than his society.

No limit

There are no limit to wealth. Wealth is abundant. There is room for people to gain wealth without taking from others, and wealth is not a zero-sum game in the long term. Many things can affect the creation and destruction of wealth including size of the work force, production efficiency, available resource endowments, availability of capital, but most important factor are inventions and innovations.

For example: Energy now day lies heavily on oil from mining. It predicted to run out in near future. Oil price went crazy in the past few years. But before it really run out, scientist already discover another alternative energy. Energy that come from sun, wind, and even water, which we know it will never run out. Scientist can even make oil from plants.

However, at any given point in time, there is a limited amount of wealth which exists. That is to say, it is fixed in the short term. People who study short term issues see wealth as a zero sum game and concentrate on the distribution of wealth, whereas people who study long term issues see wealth as a non-zero sum game and concentrate on wealth creation.

One's attitude towards this issue affects the design of the social or economic system that one prefers.

Another definition

Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad) said, wealth is a measurement of time. It is how long you can continue to live your lifestyle when you cease working. For instance if you have an expense of $2,000 a month and $4,000 in the bank and you have no other forms of income, then you have a wealth measurement of 2 months.

But if you are able to have other forms of income, which don’t require trading time for money, to a point where they exceed your monthly expense, then you will effectively reach infinite wealth. This called PASSIVE INCOME or residual income. And if you think wealth is a game, then your goal is to have passive income more than your monthly expense.


Hope you all achieve it, and have a GREAT LIFE !!!
