Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common annual occasions, manufactured or otherwise and make them great. Weak men wait for opportunities; strong men make them. You - weak or strong? Your media says you are the best PM to date.
Failure is not fatal. Failure should be our teacher, nor our undertaker. It should challenge us to new heights of accomplishments, not pull us to new depths of despair. Even if you fail in GE13 from honest failure UMNO can gain valuable experience for GE14.
I just hope this is not beyond you…..coming from St John’s this should not be too intriguing! It is better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared. And I bet you your teachers did remind you that he who refuses to embrace a unique opportunity loses the prize as surely as if he had failed.
The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger - but recognize the opportunity.
No-one gets an iron-clad guarantee of success. Certainly, factors like opportunity, luck and timing are important. But the backbone of success is usually found in old-fashioned, basic concepts like hard work, determination, good planning and perseverance. You worked and travelled hard, planned ahead, used resources available, have good advisor at home, your tweet followers are legions….the TAR boys and girls love you although they claim their chairman is kedukut, but most of all even your Rais have changed mode….WHAT else are you waiting for? CARPE DIEM sir!
JUST DO IT! ……….before the fruit flies attack!
