[1: 1,408 of 10,000] Winning Team

In Review on March 8, 2015 at 2:27 PM

I watched Moneyball again and here is what I contemplated this time –

MoneyballTrailer03

Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) and Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) dared to assemble a winning team. They disregarded the qualities of the individuals that made them a liability, instead they focused on what can they do to be contributor to a winning team. It’s amazing how selected people are able to find out the gem in somebody, and even more amazing is to group this misfits and believe it works.

Billy summed it all when he said, “You may not look like a winning team, but you are one. So, play like one tonight.”

The movie shows the real life, we have baggage that we can’t seem to let go, we have responsibilities to our loved ones, we care how we made mistakes from past decisions, and we get hit by losing! When we hit the bottom, there is no other options but to keep standing up, find new ways, and dare – well ideally anyway.

They say we are alive right now because we have a purpose. I am so scared of life right now that I wanted to give up and I don’t want to see my purpose get realised because I loss and got hurt. I know that I know what I want but because of my pain, my dreams become blurry and it’s harder for me to move on and trust myself. The movie was a great reminder, I am a misfit to where I have been, and all I have to do is find the team that would make the team a winner with my contribution, what I am simply saying is I will find where I belong, because as much as I get blinded that I can do it alone, I couldn’t and I shouldn’t.

[1: 1,372 of 10,000] The Ending of The Story

In Article on November 30, 2014 at 7:07 AM

It’s almost the end of the year again and I am so tempted to see a fortune teller to find out the future, how it will begin, and how it’ll end – ‘irony’ or simply to find out if I will survive happily.

The End

It’s funny how I longed to know the future before it really happened, before I have even lived it, instead of just enjoying the ride, the adventure of now. Like a blackboard and a chalk, life really doesn’t end, we erase and write again, what counts is how we live the now, how do we react now, and how do we give out our smile, our joy, and our optimism for the greater good. How good bye right now is fitting and not to be scared of seeing things that would remind me of the pain.

I am currently scared of anything that reminds me of his name, his nationality, his mistress’ nationality, the decisions he influenced, the brand that he gave, and so I focus to the good and not to despise everything that connects to him because when I start entertaining new experience and new people, my attention will surely shift. Life is too beautiful to be miserable.

[1: 1,369 of 10,000] Amazing Imagination from a Genius

In Review on November 28, 2014 at 7:33 AM

Have you watched the movie “Begin Again“? If not, watch this scene where a music business executive just imagined a beautiful thing or I recommend that go see it and be happily uplifted especially if you like beginning again, music, and Keira’s fashion sense.

I love that kind of imagination. It’s pretty genius creating things in your mind. I thought I have a pretty wild imagination and couldn’t figure out if my nightmares were actually a creation of my cray cray mind.

The scene also shows that we are more majestic when combined with others. I have to invite the reality that I couldn’t exist in the world without connecting with other people, collaborate, but I got to bring in my own genius in the mix.

 

[1: 1,335 of 10,000] He Wants A Baby

In Poem on August 9, 2014 at 11:51 PM

 

CupidCupid could you
pull out the love arrow
you aimed to my heart

I am going numb
terribly crazy for
loving a married man

He calls her baby
and now he wants a baby with her
a child for goodness gracious

I should stay far away
I should start running
because it is breaking my heart

How could I love him
in silent
and now in deep sadness

Pull out the arrow
to snap me out quick
from my madness

[1: 1,299 of 10,000] It Takes 45 Posts

In Article on February 11, 2014 at 11:38 PM

Yor's Internal CloudI use the Daily Post’s named yearly tag, I started in 2011 with PostADay2011 and so for 2014 it’s a new tag. At the beginning of the year, PostADay2014 was no where to be found from my internal cloud, I was getting anxious when will I automatically see it in my most used tags, then I discovered its on the 45th posts!!!

Right now, my cloud’s screenshot is the image at the left, and it is a lot more convenient. It is also fun to look at it as I may kind of gauge the subjects that are close to my writing heart.

What does your tag looked like? Which ones have the biggest font size?

In Journal on February 8, 2014 at 10:36 PM

What does it mean by living the dream for me? It would be…

Barrister Chair

  1. Being a business tycoon that gives generous employment for people working and living their passion.
  2. Living in my own house I’ve designed.
  3. Having a gorgeous grey barrister chair.
  4. At peace, smiling, and full of wisdom.
  5. Sharing my love with everyone around me.

[1: 1,272 of 10,000] Larry Smith Defined Passion with such Fluency

In Article on January 15, 2014 at 4:12 AM

Larry Smith is an Economist and talked at TED with the title “Why you will fail to have a great career?” It wasn’t the smart question that made me love his talk, it was actually the spot on reasons.

  1. He felt very strongly that we will never live a great career because we always find excuses on why we don’t follow our dream. Let us expound about that beautiful dream, which we also call PASSION. He defined passion with such elegance and nobility, he said, “Passion helps you create the highest expression of your talent. It is your greatest love.
  2. He also beautifully add “Pursue your passion, pursue your dream, pursue your fascination in life.” So what other lame valid excuse we’ve used too often – Too lazy, Too hard.
  3. Then at the end the day, the only reason why it will not come true as he summed up – “You will not do it.”

Unless…

Now that I am inspired, it’s time to ACT.

Watch his talk and be equally inspired too and live what you’re made of.

[1: 1,271 of 10,000] Adam Leipzig’s 5 Questions

In Article, Question on January 14, 2014 at 5:28 PM

The 5 Questions would help us define who we are; it is connected to our purpose.

Ready?

adam_leipzig

Those 5 questions was not easy for me to answer.

1. Who you are? It is the bonus. YOR.

2. What you do? BLOG (?)

3. Who you do it for? Myself. Selfish huh.

4. What do they want or need? More of what I need is to have an outlet for my expression.

5. How did they change as a result? I am kept sane.

For my other self, still not sure.

[1: 1,269 of 10,000] What’s the work you can not do?

In Article on January 12, 2014 at 4:14 PM

Scott DinsmoreScott Dinsmore asks, “What’s the work you can not do?

Our answer to that question would lead us to our inherent gift, the very purpose of our existence.

What’s the work you can not do?

We should not underestimate the gift that we have because even if it’s not unique we can do it with such finesse that it was worthwhile for the good of humanity. We should not even doubt the effect, it is not irrelevant if you have touched just one person because anything that was done with true love ripples.

What’s the work you can not do?

We should rejoice and honour ourselves for doing the work that we cannot not do as then we live.
