I believe that all of us have a unique story and sharing that story, life experience, knowledge and passion can be an extremely fulfilling and lucrative career… if we know how to package and position it correctly.
My story began when I was in college and my entire life I’ve been told that in order to succeed in life, it’s first to get good grades in school, study hard so that one day I can get into a good college, good university so that that lands me a good job, a steady job to save more money spend less money and most of this advice came from my parents.
My father is one of the most hardworking people in a world that I know of. For 13 years he worked on two jobs. On his 9 to 5 job with the government and after his 9-5 job he will work on a farm. My father is a farmer and every single year my dad would bring my brother and I the same exact spot in the farm to take a picture and you will make us whole up this white sign board that shows how old the farm is this year in the first 10 years.
Growing up on the farm. So that was my background growing up in that sort of mindset where success is only achieved through blood, sweat and tears through hard work and when I was in college… I’ve been doing well my entire life and are finally offered to study in Warwick University where I got a scholarship from the government of Malaysia and to cut a really long story short because of a lot of good times, parties, I nearly flunked out of university I got a 42 percent average and out of the 3 years I spent a total of eight hours attending lectures and that was because my entire life I’ve done well in school and I thought college and university was not going to be any different.
Finally, when I went back home that was when reality hit. I realized that all these companies that once headhunted me didn’t want to hire me anymore because they were all judging me based on that piece of paper. The result that I got from university.
And this time the government said that I didn’t fulfill the condition that I had with the scholarship and they wanted me to pay back every single dollar which was fifty-three thousand U.S dollars money which I didn’t have which my parents obviously didn’t have.
And because of that here’s the funny thing. I was so conditioned to believe that if I didn’t do well in school and get good grades, this is the price I have to pay for the rest of my life and my first job that paid about 900 ringgit that’s about 300 U.S dollars a month.
I worked on this job for nearly two years. And after a year I remember I was having a shower. And the water is coming down. But I wasn’t really showering I was just. Thinking and reflecting but life was thinking “How did I manage to screw up this badly in life?”.
I had everything going for me. I was a scholar of straight “A” student. I had all these big companies they were all lining up waiting to headhunt me to hire me as soon as I got out from university. And just because of one mistake and one screw up in my life this is the price I have to pay?
And there was when I realized I had to do something different. That was when I went online. I typed in “How To Make Money Online” and buying all these different programs home study courses. They seemed to one thing in common and that was to make money online you first need to sell a product.
I didn’t think I had a strength so I created this 30-page guide on how to play this computer game World of Warcraft which is one of the reasons why nearly failed university. I played this game for over a thousand hours and I didn’t think it would sell well.
I put it online for just seven dollars and within nine months. I made my first sale and many months after, the sales from my online product was 3 times more than my full-time job pay. Fronted which was very hard to do because my full-time job didn’t pay me a lot of money. That was when I took what I did from World of Warcraft. I scaled it up into many other niche markets in Forex in gardening, teeth whitening in how to quit smoking. Today we run for about 600 different websites. In 2010 there was this really big game called Farmville. We were first to market this guide called Farmville Secrets and Farmville Secrets did over $USD1.3MM in under seven months and since then I started teaching people the strategy on how to take your knowledge and transform that knowledge into a product that’s monetizable on the internet. I started doing this and crossed the world teaching this to tens of thousands of people and sharing the stage I’ve been blessed to share the stage people like Sir Richard Branson, Tony Robbins, Brandon Burchard, Les Brown, Robert Kiyosaki… the biggest names in the world and I never thought that was even possible.
I believe that our past struggles failures and circumstances does not dictate what the future holds for us because when life knocks you down, have the courage to stand back up because if you can stand back up and start dreaming again. If I were to look back at my life right now I realize that I will have two very different lives in a parallel universe that would be the life that I’m living right now and the life where everything was on track where all supposedly were supposed to do which was to get good grades fulfill the condition of my scholarship work in a really good company a big company and I realized that if all of that happened, I would have never been able to do what I’m doing today.
So, in other words, looking back I would have never traded my darkest moments, the lowest points in my life for anything else because those were life’s biggest lessons and what if, the biggest problems in our life were really a gift? I know that sometimes people may hate me for saying this but I’d like you to think about. How has the biggest problems in your life shaped you to who you are today? How has it enabled you to become a bigger person a better person a wiser person?
Maybe it taught you to appreciate health more or maybe it taught you to appreciate that life is truly finite and that it could end that any time? In other words the biggest problems in our lives can either shape us up or we can tear us down… and that is a choice. I believe in the power of your story and it is my job to help you take that story, passion, life experience and knowledge and package and position it as a product that’s monetizable online and it is my job to help you find that voice that message that is truly that is authentic to you and to share it with the world.
It’s your time.
