People always sound critical. Trying to recoup the best answer. is there a hidden secret recipe? is there a hidden motive? Getting something from me? Why me?

Amusing. Don't you find? History started off with barter trade. Follow by agriculture produce. And services.

Everyone has something to offer. Many seem powerless. There is a reason. And chances are they are being too harsh on themselves.

Reasons like no money. No skill. No opportunity. ill-health. Getting old. Too young. Handicapped. The most unfortunate is no "want".

Unless we have cerebral palsy or something, we subject our livelihood to alms. But with time, many do learned from their past. There are either losing interest in life itself or pure lazy. No one is to blame. Free country. Everyone do have choices.

The economic pie is not judged by its' size. Supply n demand either. Those are old school of thoughts. For instance convenience shop. Neighbourhood apple-pie outlet. Or even selling unheard of items on the net. The trade scenario has taken added malady into its' business. Not just old malady but a new set too.

Like competition. Customers spoilt for choice. Shopping malls coming up like mushrooms. Buying power. The aging society. Breadwinner has many mouths to feed. impatience etc.

These are elements that will bring up prices. Unorganics. Preservatives. irresponsible workforce. Unscrupulous employers n so forth. The impact could only get worst as human behavioural study concludes.

As the human population profess itself, the future of trade is anybody's guess.

We can only do our day's work with some proper etiquette, try not inviting troubles n minding our own business.

Unless you are the maverick type.

Or aspires to be a Circus Clown.

Responsible for ourselves

is there a way to make it on our own? To our own ability? To our confidence? No matter what the challenges are?

From experience, we are too afraid of failures. Afraid of economic sanctions. Afraid lack of support.

With some amount of thoughts n guidelines, i don't think anyone out there shouldn't be able to. Learning from mistakes. Trials n errors. Being thrifty. Are some of the lessons we can induct into our new work.

We maybe good in writing. Good in accounting. Good with people skill. And selling too. There is no short cut. Many give up within short notice. Getting bored. Feeling lost are some of the setback on the journey towards independance.

Have a vision. Try to achieve something by taking steps. Finding ways to solve problems. Stay focus. And so on. Be sure to finish off our assignment too. With time n some practice the goal you're seeking should be within reach.

For instance, if you're selling something. is there a demand? Where the market would be? Will i be able to market them? What are the cost? What is my punchline? Where shall i start? When will i be able to sell a specified quantity?

Whenever we found difficulty in doing anything, start asking ourselves what we can do. Do not shy away or give up too easily. There must be a way. Somewhere. Somehow. Anyhow, where would we start? The time is now.

What if i don't have money? What if i don't find the time to do things? Whom shall i talk to? Whom shall i call? What am i doing right now? We should start somewhere or we will be forever at a crossroad. Afraid of leading our lives. Afraid of taking that 1st step.

We are blessed with certain attributes. Something we good at. Something we love. Don't let that go to waste. if money is the main criterium, chances are we are not going to start anything at all.

Start working on something n get into the scheme of things. Problems n solutions are stepping stones in every enterprise. You never know if you don't try.

Try taking one step at a time n see for yourself the changes you make towards making a better living.

Better late than never. Take it slow. You love it!


As time goes by, we realised how things have changed so fast. Getting older. Tired. Meaningless.

Going with the times, sanity drives away our customers. Much more so otherwise. Doing our best to run business both the macro n micro side.

There is no easy way out. Working, pacing n practising our skill in the hope of getting results.

Solitude n finding rest also works. No point working fervently where we most often misdirect our energy n getting frustrated in the end. Well, that's life. Getting frustrated is a human feeling. Don't get too hard on yourselves.

We fall. We crawl back. All in a day's work. Once we realised we are only human, we will feel much better of being our ownself. No undue influence. No duress. At your own pace.

Little victories along the way like cutting on smoking n drinking more water. Reducing our anger n minimising on impulse. There is no end to what we can do to improve our life.

Don't get too carried away with external forces. Think right. Doing the right thing etc. Go for what we want. Take that very 1st step. Don't give up easily. And be kind to yourselves.

Like getting enough sleep. Take it slow. And personal hygiene.

No shame. No shame. We might be slow. But we are taking steps for the road ahead.

Safety first.
