Being Mediocre or Outstanding?

Sometimes, we want to do and invest something, but because it's involving our hard earn money, perhaps to certain extend, we are hesitate whether want to go for it. For example, property, stock investment, become an entrepreneur, MLM and so on. Go big or go home, how?

We used to hear or see, some people made a lot money from doing business, investing in properties, stock market, forex, joining MLM, etc. They made us rethink whether we want to join them. On the other hand, we also heard a lot of failures around. And we are hesitating how much actually we want to invest, go or not.

From my experience, life is like that. There's no definite or sure-win path for you to follow, and most of the time there are uncertainty and uncomfortable of making these decisions, especially involving your hard earn money. But still, we need to move on, we need to extend our wealth and make our living more comfortable. So somehow we will need to make certain decisions on investment and career.

It comes to the level of daring.

Most of the time, we are wondering why some people are just daring to invest this and that, and even with such a huge amount. Don't they afraid they lose their hard earn money? Well, to certain extend, I believe some of them are just gambling and trying their luck. They do not want to be mediocre, they want to succeed else fail. I also strong believe minority of them have calculated their risks, gathered their past experience and make the best decisions out of all.

I have been putting a lot of efforts in looking into running business, property and stock market investment over the past 7 years. I have tried most of them, starting from small, made tonnes of mistakes, tried big and still fails, as well as don't do anything and let opportunity passed by. Honestly, I failed quite miserably. Why?

I think I do not have the determination. I also do not have the patient to wait.


When market is good, I just tried 10%. When market is even better, I started to reduce my stake to 0%. When market is at it's best, I cannot stand and went in with 50%. Then burn my hand. Same with doing business. Does it means I do not have the qualification to invest and do business?

No, I don't think so.

Everyone stands a chance to success. Not every baby can run before walk. Even though I spent a lot of efforts in studying and understanding it, it does not mean guarantee success. I'm lack of experience, and I also admit that I have limited patience. Remember, life is full of expectation especially you want to walk out of your comfortable zone. My advice is to expect it, ready to be all out and lose whatever you currently have. Then you are qualify to gain more.

It's a bit too lengthy for today. Will try to continue my sharing again.
