Blessed Friday- Money and Marriage Success Tips

Good morning, awesome people of the world…

I love this quote:

You have within you,right now,everything you need to deal with whatever the world can throw at you.”

― Brian Tracy

Everyone has challenges in their lives. But rest assured everything given to us are for our own good. Think of the good and its blessings. Move forward in spite of everything. Believe me, you can do it! All challenges given are always on par to the level of our  strength, courage and capabilities.We are more than beyond capable of handling them.

Humans are miracles. We are much more intelligent than we give ourselves credit for.

Every challenge given is to spur us up to the next level of life. There is no failure but LESSONS.

I don’t care what your educational level is, or the money in your pocket nor the so-called “inteligence” cells that one might derived thru hereditary… YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK.

If you believe you are a failure, you are right. If you believe you are a MEGA SUCCESS, you are definitely RIGHT!

The day we were even conceived and born, spelled out WINNERS in every stage and cell. So why live like a loser, and behave like one?

I just watched a dance movie whereby their favorite cheer was-“Act like CHAMPIONS, BE CHAMPIONS!”

So my dear readers, you make the best out of your life. If you want to be winners, BE! If you wanna be SUCCESSFUL, BE! If you wanna manifest your every dreams, GO AHEAD!

No one has the right to tell you anything else other than yourself. No one can rob you of your “DREAM LIFE”.

The only question is: Do you have the courage to LIVE YOUR DREAMS?

It has nothing to do with your shortcomings. If you realized that the successful people of the world are those not necessarily whom have completed their school education, some are school drop-outs.

And not every one is born with a golden spoon in their mouth. So read up on those success stories and create your own. You deserve every bit of success in this life and hereafter. And everything you do, remember the key is: TO BE HAPPY. Not for others but for YOURSELF. Only when you are happy, you surroundings and your loved ones will be.

You may not know much about me. But I do walk my talk. I do whatever I wanted to do. I don’t care about my limitations..cos I believe they can be overcome.

I started out as a homemaker. I sacrificed everything to be a homemaker. Then I realised that I have a voice and I started to blog. I was blogging out of my heart. I was doing it for the community (insya-Allah kerana Allah taala).

I visioned myself to be on the magazines and newspapers. It happened. I then visualised to be on TV, it happened. I ended up being the popular Celebrity blogger, one of the top halal food and travel blogger with the name “WORLD HALAL TRAVELLER” .

And then I decided to go on a solo world tour, I did. Again, as mentioned, I do not have any money that time. In fact I lost everything that moment, but I hold on to that dream and believe and have utmost faith that it will happen. I wanted to write a book, I did wrote a few, successfully. I wanted to be a successful business woman, and I’m doing it now.

Next step is one of my biggest dream. I cannot reveal it just yet. But let my actions speak louder than my words.

It’s not just visualising and things started to work. Read my articles in this site over and over again, they are the keys to success in which I learnt from various mentors, gurus like Abang Abu and also strangers I met in various parts of the world.

And of course not forgetting… my fantabulous family!They are a big part of my life. They support me in whatever I do, no matter how crazy I can be… sometimes. *lol

(There were many periods of time whereby I was all alone and felt like giving up and my family were not by my side… there were a time whereby it seems like the world is against me as well..but again, if you are determined and have belief and faith in ur dreams,eventually the right people will  be behind you in every step of the way.The main thing is do you know what you really want? Are you prepared to go for it, no matter what?)

So remember, everything that you need is actually within you. Each and everyone of you already have everything to be a SUCCESS. So no excuse,not to be a success, ok? 🙂

I hope …next time, I get to see each and everyone of you as successful people of the world especially in marriage and in money. Do come up to me and say -Hi!

I love to meet people. My passion: PEOPLE, TRAVEL and HALAL FOOD.

This is my last article for this year in Abang Abu’s site. I felt saddened by it. I felt like there is an invisible “bond” between you and me, dear readers. I’ve grown attached to you, somehow. I hope you learn something from my weekly articles and enjoy them as much as I enjoyed sharing them with you.

Do continue writing in your comments in this site or my own site. I can accept any colourful comments because I believe they are crucial in improvements especially in the ladder of success.

May your life be blessed.

Be happy in everything you do.

Love,live, laugh,

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

Good morning, awesome people of the world…

Today’s tip on money and marriage is: The 5 people around you is essential to your life success, be it marriage or money or both.

So surround yourself with the bestest. The role models the successes that you aspire to be.

Do you realised that there are some people that you felt very energised just by being in their presence? And in some others’… you felt so low, like no mood or you feel like you need to get out and run away fast from them?

There are some who are very energised and positive, there are also others whose energy are so low…they ended up sucking the surroundings’ energy. That is why sometimes, after events or meet ups, you felt depleted of energy, tired.

So take note of the 5 important people whom you surrounded yourself with. Be in close proximity with those whose energy are high and are motivated with their positivism and perspectives. Learn from them.

Surround yourself with people who are successful. Avoid those whose lives are filled with complaints and finger pointing, blaming etc.

May your life be blessed.

Be happy in everything you do.

Love,live, laugh,

Good morning, awesome people of the world…

How’s your day? Hope it has been filled with loads of fun, love and happyness.

Today’s tip is FOCUS.

I remembered the first time I met with Abang Abu. He was casually dressed and so down to earth. I was feeling all jittery and nervous. Fancy meeting a MILLIONAIRE and get to talk to him up close.

Even though I have met many Millionaires even Billionaires (both locally and internationally), I will still be nervous and excited. And no matter how deep their pockets are, they are often so humble and nice.

Anyway recalling my first meet-up with Abang Abu, he taught me an important lesson: FOCUS.

When you are determined to fulfill your dream, you have to focus on 1 thing at a time. Give your full attention, mind, heart and your everything on it.

There will be challenges along the way that might sway you from your “destination”, that is why you have to stay focus no matter what.

Abang Abu gave me a challenge to fulfill. It sounded easy to focus but…oh boy…when I began, suddenly there were many other projects started to flow in as well. And the surroundings were also challenges. I had to really ground myself and focus.

I wrote my goal big and bold and paste it where I can see it often.  I also kept some in my bag, purse etc.

I told my family and friends so that they can remind me if I got out of focus and strayed from the “path” and might not reach my destination.

So remember , FOCUS is the key.

Whatever it is that you wanna do be it in MARRIAGE (LOVE) or MONEY (SUCCESS), you can do it!! FOCUS!!!

So my question for you today is…

What’s stopping you from fulfilling your dreams?

Good morning, awesome people of the world…

How many times, have we felt like we are totally all alone in this world?

Especially when challenges happen in our lives, we tend to submerge in that loneliness and drown in our own sorrows because we felt that we are alone and no one can help us.

Is that TRUE? Is that really, really true?

When MARRIAGES are faced with problems (I prefer to use the term “CHALLENGES) , “modern couples” nowadays preferred to solve them out by themselves. No intrusion of external parties even immediate families like parents/in-laws. They feel that they might interfere and add more conflicts and confusion to the challenge at hand.

Whereas in actual fact, there are many professionals and even family members (whom we trust and love dearly) especially elders who have gone thru life’s ups and downs who can see the whole challenge as an onlooker and give their thoughts and advice or participate as mediators.

When we faced with MONEY problems, the same can be said. There are many SOLUTIONS to every challenge. There are many people who are professionally experts in these matters. Just look at their lives. They are a walking success boards.

We are NEVER alone. There are many who LOVED us..some LOVED us more than we loved ourselves. Do not tune them out just because you do not want to trouble them or because of all the little voices in your head.

A friend recently was in trouble. She wanted help but she was afraid to voice out. She thought she was alone and kept her troubles to herself.

If she did not voice out, how do anyone knew her challenges and wanted to help her, right?

And also because she was raised as the one who solved other people’s problems and she was often seen as the “tough one”. This identity of hers stay intact in her skin and personality that she refused to ask for help.

Eventually, after I noticed her restlessness and her “unusual silent” mood, I pestered her and she poured out.

She is a single mother of 3 kids. She needs a roof over her head.But she refused to meet up with organisations who can be of help to her. In her mind, ” I’m not that bad, I still can survive. There are others who need more than me, let them serve these people who are worse than me”.

That was the “mantra” in her head. Eventually if she continues on, she will be worse than anyone else. She will not even afford a roof over her head and her kids. And might have to live on the streets. But do we have to wait till that happens?

I persuaded her to just apply and seek help from these “angels organisation” and see what happens.

I asked her to start receiving little kindness and be grateful for that.

At first, it was tough to change old habits. But eventually, she relented and try it out.

Now not only did the organisations helped her out by getting her a home for her and her kids, but also get her a job that she is passionate about and at the same time she is able to care for her kids as well.

She is now very happy, leading a fulfilling life.She also went out to meet other single parents and help them in anyway she can.

She told me that- “Actually, its ok to receive. I have been giving out so much that I have no more to give. And I have trouble receiving from others. But as I learn to receive little kindness for myself and my kids, more and more “rezki” (abundance) are flowing in. Alhamdulillah.”

So whenever you are down and felt so all alone, remember that is not true…and tell yourself that – “I am LOVED by many.” Look around you and be thankful for all the people in your life.

Accept and embrace all kindness be it small or big. Once you learnt to RECEIVE The small things, the BIG things start rolling in…without you realising.

The moral of this story is that if you cannot receive the little money and the little love in your life, how can you be sure you are capable of receiving the BIG money and the BIG love in your life? Sometimes, we are so used to being self-sufficient that we tend to push away anyone who wanted to share/help us in our lives. I knew this too well because I faced these challenges as well. But that shall be another story to be told, another day, ok?

Take care,

You are never alone.
My love is for u wherever you are.

Good morning, awesome people of the world…
Today’s tip on money and marriage is: I am RESPONSIBLE.

Shout it out loud and clear.

The world is what you make out of it.For everything that we do, we are responsible for it.

I’m still on a roadtrip. Abundance scenery, gorgeous people, wonderful and fantabulous lessons learnt.

The fact that I’m also bus hopping thruout the states, makes me more starry-eyed groggy but more adaptable to changes.(I just learnt that in Malaysia, one cannot be too sure that they will travel in the same bus thruout even though they paid for that brand they felt happy with)

Fr both money and marriage , we are all responsible for it.For the choices we make daily, for the outcomes of it, for the lessons learnt, for the pain and pleasures that came out of it….etc.

Embrace that.There are no MISTAKES but LESSONS.

Do not justify, lay blame, create excuses…if you must point a finger, point it at yourself.

No one, not even our parents are to be blamed for the life we chose now. We are RESPONSIBLE. Claim that responsibility like a great leader and manouever it well.

I do wish to lengthen this “conversation” but as mentioned, this is hot from oven… inspired by my never ending travels…and the wonderful inspiring teachers I met thruout my unpredictable journey.

I am thankful.
Alhamdulillah.

Good morning, awesome people of the world…

Today’s tip on money and marriage is: Believe.

If you have BIG dreams, have the courage to pursue and manifest them.

If in MARRIAGE, your goal is to be the bestest for your spouse in this life and hereafter… why not?

For me in Marriage, I wanna be the most romantic partner. I’m hopelessly romantic. So why not? I do not mind being the “man” and shower my soul life partner with flowers or little pink notes in little hidden corners and catch him by surprise with little notes of gratitude and love poems.

BELIEVE it and it will happen.Even though I might not know how to write a single sentence of poetry. But because I believe that I can be, somehow, I am open to it.

When I BELIEVE that I am romantic, for sure, ideas will start to flow in that direction-ROMANCE.

If in MONEY, your goal is to be a Millionaire… why not?

Ask yourself how long do you need to be a millionaire? Start believing and BE one!

Even if you have no money, start believing it.

I used to have no money. I used to write on a piece of paper the amount that I want and keep it in my wallet. Then it became reality.

Soon, I began to carry a $50 dollar note in my wallet. And the money that came in , are in 50s. Then I decided to make the amount bigger, gradually.Every time, I looked at it, I am positively charged. And then that dollar notes became $100. Then they escalated to $1000 dollar notes …

Somehow the doors to abundance will be open to you from all directions.

Believe it and it will happen.

When one believes with utmost conviction, nothing can stand in his/her way.

I’ve got a story to tell…

I once had a chat with my high school friends about travelling the world. I was the only home maker with no career in that period of time.My friends were mostly in their peak of their career paths.

We were chatting happily. I was really into it. Because it’s my dream. Travelling is my life. And so while they were busy calculating their “limited” time and money, I was busy charting my itinerary. I have no money but I got time. And I’m gonna paint that imagination in full 3D colours.

Best part is, I was the one who has no money at that time as compared to my high flier career friends. But it did not stop me.

I let my imagination run wild. I was prepared to be a street busker to fund my dream. I was prepared to do anything to make it real. But of course, my street music “capabilities” might chase people back into their homes. LOL.

But I did something. I believed in my dream so much that…
I even started to pack a small haversack for the so-called “future world tour”. I put it where I can see it often.

I believe so strongly that I can do it, no matter what.

Everyday, I wake up and look at that haversack on the floor near the door.
Before I sleep, I look at it again, standing confidently in its aloofness.

Few months later, I went for my world tour, unexpectedly.
Somehow, everything that I need came to me easily and effortlessly.

I was prepared to travel to 5 countries of various continents.
But I ended up travelling to 36 countries. Alhamdulillah.

What about my friends? They were shocked till today. Not able to understand what had just happened.

And yes, they were still bickering about their limited time and money as an excuse.

So my question for you today is…

What’s stopping you from fulfilling your dreams?

Good morning, awesome people of the world…

Today’s tip on money and marriage is: Write it.

KEEP A JOURNAL.

1) Money matters

Everyday, money flows in and out of your life. Do you keep track of it?

Even though you have  a certain amount of money for daily expenses and monthly spending, do you note every single cent you use, every day?

Do you keep a habit to have receipt for everything you do?

Everyone should do this. No need to wait until you become an entrepreneur to keep track of your money. You can start now. You can teach kids to do it as well.

a)Write a daily summary of what you spent before you sleep. 5-10 minutes is enough.

It’s really simple. For every cent that goes in and out, keep track of it by asking for receipts, and if possible, document it by writing it down or use those fancy apps on the market to keep track of your daily expenditure.

At the end of the month, tabulate it. And then compare with other months. See whether you can improve in some areas.

For example, I’m always moving. I often use public transport but if time is very tight, taking cabs is an advantage. So I ensure that every time I take cab, I will ask for the receipt. It became a habit so much so that not just for business but for pleasure, I will ask for receipt. This way, I will notice whether my cab rides are essential or not. And I will improve every month. And best part is…I do enjoy travelling by buses. the scenery, the people…so awesome!

2)Marriage matters.

In marriage matters, its best to note down important things you have learnt especially when there are exchanges of opinions and lessons learnt from every experiences.

I do carry a notebook everywhere. Even though I have my IPAD with me, I felt writing is essential in my life. Its therapeutic. And when you write, you focus with greater energy than in using IPAD or phone or whatever the new technology offers nowadays.

So in marriage, if you really wanna improve your love and relationship, do jot down every lesson learnt. And these ‘lessons’ often come unplanned. So be aware.

a)Have a daily night “couple” chat before sleeping. At least 30 minutes.

Share your daily life experiences and lessons learnt with each other. Jot these “gems” of life and take note of their lessons learnt.

2 heads are better than one. Do learn more from different eyes and perspectives.

So write different journals for different matters.

And revise it by often flipping through it.

May your life be blessed.Be happy in everything you do.

Love,live, laugh,

Blessed Friday:  Money and Marriage Success Tips.

Good morning, awesome people of the world…

Today’s tip on money and marriage is: Don’t Complain.

Easier said than done, huh?

I’m currently doing a short stint of travelling via roadtrip in Malaysia. Alhamdulillah. The whole experiences is way beyond words. The gorgeous places, food and amazing hospitality and warm embrace from everywhere, caught me in awe and such tenderness of kindness melted my heart. I felt like I don’t ever wanna leave.

A traveller’s address is in her heart. If you bring your home everywhere with you, you will feel belonged, everywhere.

One thing I noticed…

When fatigue sets in, my mind became blurred and disarrayed. Rain is a bonus but not when you are carrying a 10kg backpack and sweating profusely underneath the scorching heat.(weird isnt’ it? Raining wet and still got burnt by the sun?)

Then the challenges sets in…because I begin to complain.

Amongst the starry, starry night and awe-mazing beaches of Malaysia, and not forgetting the beautiful full moon, I was focusing on what I dislike. I was enlarging on my discomfort of wet jeans and shoes, the mosquito buzzing in my ears, the sand flies etc… And then slowly, everything became a pain in the buttocks (pardon my language).

I was not able to focus on the “happyness” or the blessing of the “NOW” moment. I was focussing on the “negative” side and thus from then on, everything seems topsy turvy. Nothing seems to go my way. Bus drivers, the receptionist, the restaurant staff… and whoever that I met, do not seem to “like” my presence. Everything can be a quarrel.

Then as I became aware of what’s happening. I took a deep breath. I can feel my cheeks were flushed and warm. I was raging inside. I took a moment to calm myself. I went down to the beach to watch nature at its best. The howling of waves crashing…seems to be therapeutic.

Whatever the “lil voices” were complaining inside, I embraced them and said-“thank you for sharing” and show them the EXIT door.

I then, started to be aware of what’s going inside and outside. And as I changed the words of complain to positive gratitude. Suddenly, my journey became better.

Everyone began to smile and laugh with me. I was enjoying myself. Even the rainy weather seems to invoke the fun side of me.

Hmm…

I shall remember…in whatever circumstances, do not complain. But seek the best side of everything. Even in people, especially in MARRIAGE and MONEY.

One key recipe I have learnt- Everyone in this world is doing their bestest to live their lives the bestest way they could with what they already knew.

When you keep that in mind. Somehow, your heart becomes one with them.

Soulmates are very hard to come by. Your spouses are your partners. No matter what differences you may have. Just remember, they are doing their bestest to love you, to make you happy and make both of your life experiences be memorably amazing.

As for MONEY, do not complain about the lack. But give gratitude about its presence. Even if it’s one cent. It is still something. It’s a blessing indeed.

Everything in this world is energy. What type of energy do you want to be with?

I shall proceed on with my journey. I shall continue my ramblings with the moon. Meanwhile, every moment in life is a treasure. Do keep that in mind.

The key tip of today is that-Do not complain. You will only enhance your negative experience. Instead focus on the blessings in every thing. And you will attract more of it.

Blessed Friday:  Money and Marriage Success Tips.

Good morning, awesome people of the world…

Today’s tip on money and marriage is: Be Happy!

One thing I have learnt that we each have our own compass, our own intuition our own beacon of happiness. And I am such a happy go-lucky person. I realized that if anything I do, do not correspond well with my inner being of happiness, I will feel suffocated. And often enough that will help me choose the right options for me.

As an entrepreneur, I have learnt that I cannot delay in making decisions. And one way to choose the right decisions is to feel whatever that leads to happyness.

Everything in life, choose happiness as one of the important guidelines in everything you do.

Remember, everyone deserves to be happy in their own way. You are definitely worth it!

So in Money and Marriage , make sure you do things that you are happy about. Best if it comes with passion.

For example: Marry the man/woman you are happy about or best still the ones who make you happy everyday.

As for money, invest in stuff that makes you happy. This way you enjoy seeing the money grow. And  you want to learn more and more because it makes you happy.

Do you know that when one is happy, their energy level is high. The exuberance of happy vibes encourage like-minded people to attract to one another. And also whatever that one wants can be attracted easily with that energy and attraction.

If you have time and money, do invest in HAPPYNESS. Life may be short, may be long, whatever it is, BE HAPPY. You won’t go wrong.

“I’ve realized that being happy is a choice. You never want to rub anybody the wrong way or not be fun to be around, but you have to be happy. When I get logical and I don’t trust my instincts – Thats when I get in trouble.”Angelina Jolie


Hope that helps!

BE LOVE, be happy and be prosperous.

Have a great day!

Happy Regards,

p.s: Do write in your heartfelt comments be it good or bad. I embrace all colorful comments very well, because I believe in order to succeed,we have to constantly improve ourselves. And who else can give us sincere feedback for improvement, right? YOU…of course , the fabulous raving fans.

Together we can make this.. be a wonderful journey of success for you and I , success in life and hereafter, insya-Allah amin..

Alhamdulillah. Thank you Abang Abu for this amazing  opportunity!

Blessed Friday:  Money and Marriage Success Tips.

Good morning, awesome people of the world…

Today’s tip on money and marriage is: MENTORS.

I had the great pleasure of  meeting Blaire Singer and working with him as his crew in his event in Singapore. And one of the most important thing that I heard him say to us- Do not find a coach who has no coach.. something like that.

So regardless how successful we are, we always need a guide, a teacher, a coach, a mentor.

What are mentors? They are successful people who can advise us, be our guiding light to which path we want to take.

Of course, our Prophet (pbuh) is a great role model for us.

In Marriage, I believe there are people whom we respected and looked up to especially those elders whose marriage lasted beyond 2 decades and more. Some even lasted more than 50 years. Awesome isn’t it?  How do they do that?

How do they keep the LOVE glowing thruout their lives? How do they stay sane and be in LOVE always? How do they keep their marriage harmoniously intact?

Don’t you want to know their secrets? Make them your mentors. Learn from them as much. I believe thru out our lives, we have “mentors” aka teachers to guide us along our life.

For Marriage, your closest ones, even your parents or grandparents can be your mentors.

As for Money, find those successful role models and read about them. Find them and learn from them.(For example: Abang Abu-learn from him, go his events and workshops etc) Normally these wealthy successful people are very generous in sharing the secrets of their lives. I know cos I have met many and they always have some life gems to share with me. They have been there.

Remember…

“Every master was once a disaster.”~ T. Harv Eker

 Hope that helps!

BE LOVE, be happy and be prosperous.

Have a great day!

Happy Regards,
