"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Little Tommy informs his Mum: “Ma, I don’t think I can pass my maths exams tomorrow.”

Mum: “Now, now, Tommy, what about that positive thinking course you went to at school? Just think positive and you’ll be fine!”

Tommy: “OK Mum, I’m SURE I can’t pass my maths exams tomorrow!”


Be careful about clichés.

Positive thinking is positively effective when one is positively positive.

Here, Tommy is positively negative!

Positive thinking must lead to positive doing; that is the route to success.

Say Keng's personal comments:

Make sure your daily vocabulary does not contain these limiting words, as they will disempower you:

1. Impossible;

2. I'll try; [Remember, what Master Yoda said to Luke Skywalker in 'Star Wars': "No. Try not. DO or DO NOT! There's no try."]

3. If only...;

4. Ought;

5. Difficult;

6. I hope; [A trainer friend of mine loves to say that "hope is for people who are hopeless!"]

7. But...;

8. Should;

9. I can't...;

10. I have to...;

11. However;

12. Doubt;

13. Hard;

14. I wish...;

15. Wrong;

16. Fear; [Remember, fear is 'false evidence appearing real']
