Went out for a shopping spree yesterday. Bought 2 pairs of shoes, 4 trousers, 3 shirts and a bag pack. (And shoes from Zalora & 2 tops from Milktee). Yeah. Sound crazy right? But. Because I’ve got a job! Just an “internship” actually. Aaaa. May Allah ease my another new journey! :D
The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer. – Nolan Bushnell
Alhamdulillah! It is no longer just a wishful thinking. No longer just a dream. I know it’s not gonna be easy. But. I’m not aloneeeeee in this. Yay!
May Allah ease our journey.

And suddenly I couldnt stop blogging. Hah! What happen with me feeling sooooo self-conscious? HAHA.
Anyways, couldnt agree more. You. We. ARE BRAVER, STRONGER & SMARTER than what we believe, seem and think. I can relate to it.
I was pretty convinced that I’m stupid when I was in MRSM. Because I failed most of my Additional Mathematics papers during Form 4 & 5 and didnt get at least B+ for Mathematics when everyone else did. But. Luckily, I found people who believe in me, who showed me that the difference between smart and stupid people is the amount of effort they put in. Thanks to them, I was able to score A for both subjects for my SPM.
(My sister once told me that, out of all subjects, I can/should/must get A for Mathematics. Because if I did a lot of exercices, past year papers etc, the questions are pretty much the same, yang beza just the numbers. And it’s true. The easiest subject to score is Mathematics.) BTW. I hate mathematics. Especially application questions. Blergh.
And here another story, during my first year, I failed my Macroeconomics paper and had to repeat the subject. For some people, maybe being able to pass would be their target when they are repeating the subject, but, not me. At that time, I told my self I wouldn’t settle for less than A-. I must get at least A-. So I worked really hard. I paid attention in the class, read the topic before going to the class and revised the lecture after the class finished. And the most important thing, ask anyone whenever I dont understand anything. At the end of the day, sadly, I did not get A-, but I got B+ instead (and convinced that I suck at Economics).
And because of things like this, I really believe that if people work hard enough, they can achieve more than what they are achieving now. Because everyone is smarter and more capable than what they think.
Of course, there would be some exception because of fate. You may not be good at something no matter how hard you work on it because it just not for you. But. It shouldnt stop you though, not being good at something shouldn’t be a reason for you to quit, if you are happy with it, just do it however you want. I think it is ridiculous to stop something just because you are not good at it. Because there will always be someone who is better than us.
Few years ago, I was tricked to join a hiking trip and that’s my first. Nak dijadikan cerita, things didnt go according to the plan. We was separated from the tour guide. Long story. But, the trip made me realise that I’m stronger than what I seem. Physically and mentally. And whenever I feel so weak, I would remind myself that I’m a waitress. A waitress who used to had to multitask because there was not enough workers; amik order, hantar makanan & being a cashier. It was so hectic. But I did it. If I can do the waitress job, why cant I do (insert whatever I’m suppose to do)?
I think I’m a brave person. Except when it involve something high like abseiling or Solero Space Shot. And being able to look confident in spite of my self-consciousness? is just me being brave.
My writing is so random! Haha. Whatever. I hope I and you will always remember this quote whenever we feel afraid of something, feeling weak or stupid.
