What does happiness mean to you?
To some people, it’s having X amount of money in their bank account.
I remember when I was first starting out, I had this conversation with my colleague at that time and he asked me, “Peng Joon, do you have RM10,000 (approximately USD2,500) in your bank account?”
I thought to myself, “my life would be set if I have that kind of money in my bank account.”
Then as I grow my business and making six figures, seven figures, eight figures… I’ll constantly be setting bigger number goals.
3 years ago when I lost Chewie, my dog who was with us for 13 years, everything shifted for me.
Chewie taught me a big lesson in life that life is truly finite and at that time I would trade everything I own and have just to have Chewie back in my life.
This picture represents is what happiness is for me.
When I was in Tokyo recently, I visited a dog cafe, where you get to play with dogs for 30mins… I was bursting with joy.
It was such pure joy. I was reminded of what happiness is.
So, in the midst of chasing your dreams, goals, vision, remember to find time to do something that makes you happy and brings out the inner child in you.
Do something for the pure, absolute joy, today.
I wish you all the happiness in the world <3
