National Achievers Congress 2013

Food for the brain. Sure beats holding less than meaningful conversations with self perceived atas pseudo fashionistas at fashion events. Lol ;p I went late on the first day n managed to sit in for Keith Cunningham's teleconference...Joey always talk abt how ppl tend to fall in love with the outcomes but not the causes N Hope is not a strategy. Now I rem where I heard it before. My leechie idol, Keith Cunningham, said it. He said it again during this teleconference at nac =]

Actually i have been thinking abt the extent that bazi can influence one's success...then what Les Brown was really v.inspiring...his narration of his life story brought tears to my leechie eyes :'( a v.charismatic speaker...his is really a rags-to-riches story...he was abandoned together with his twin bro n they were adopted by his poor domestic helper mum...well, identical twins have the same bazi, looks, family background, environment...then what factors could possibly alter one's destiny n success in life?! u have no idea how depressed i felt when i was told in my chinese bazi class that one can only upgrade one's bazi by 20%...n the example i was quoted was that a beggar can nvr ever be a king! so now u see y i hesitated to have a bazi reading done n i still havent had one done yet? now then i started to think abt what Joey always says...bazi can predict one's life events...but there's always this thing called free will! n there's this famous quote "Whatever the mind can conceive n believe, it can achieve"! yes, one's mindset n free will n the people (esp mentors) that one meets have much more powerful influence in determining the quality n success of one's life! n add to that, adversity quotient...resilience to handle uncertainty...the hunger to achieve in spite of all odds...Against All Odds! Les Brown says "U've got to be hungry!" i refuse to resign to my fate n destiny! 

Les brown said that someone's opinion of me doesn't have to b my reality! 
So who cares abt hypocreeps n their judgemental opinions! =.=

"Focus your energy on the things that really matter! There will always be distractions that will keep you from achieving your goals. Don't give in to them. How have you increased your skills, knowledge, abilities, or income in the past 90 days? Do you really expect to be successful given how you are using the majority of your time, resources, and skills?

Are you spending time with people who can enhance and enrich your life? What are you doing to take your life to the next level? Will your current efforts make the next 90 days even more successful than what you just experienced? Be honest with your assessment. Don't play games with yourself. Remember ~ if you don't have an agenda for your're a part of someone else's agenda.
You deserve!" ~ Les Brown

"Let it go. There are some things, some people, some attitudes, and some feelings that you have experienced that you just need to let go ~ because they're preventing you from living your greatest life! You’re in charge. Exercise your power by consciously looking and asking the question..."How is this serving me by holding on to this attitude, anger, lack of forgiveness, grudge, or negative emotion?" Stop allowing these things to rob you of your peace of mind, happiness, and well-being.

Let it go so that you can grow and prosper. Make the decision to release anything that is unbecoming of you, and that does not represent your highest and best thinking. This is easier said than done. It requires work, and becoming deliberate and consciously aware of your feelings. No one or nothing is worth sacrificing being joyful, enthusiastic about your life, and healthy. Look for many ways to increase laughter, joy, and love in your daily experience.
You deserve!" ~ Les Brown

Think I have had enough of all those bad predictions. N according to the bazi, I'm supposed to b lacking in intelligence. Well, to have a 2nd upper hons degree for someone who is supposed to b lacking in intelligence ain't that bad eh? I realized that the success of many ppl boil down to a few things: mindset, free will, helpful mentors, resilience to uncertainty n adversity quotient.  Against all odds!!!

With Peter Sage...the most good looking speaker for this

Peter Sage is another charismatic speaker for this year's NAC...he says one shldnt confuse one's self worth with net worth...

What Joey wrote...
"Actually, Gen Powell's advice is applicable to anyone who wishes to succeed, regardless of whether their BaZi is shitty. 

Here's my little addition to his words from the BaZi perspective: 

1. The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. 

If we are going through bad luck pillars, we will be surrounded by losers. This is inevitable. The problem is when you are IN a bad pillar, you probably can't tell who are the losers and winners in your life. The sooner you realise this, the sooner you can break free from your bad pillar. 

2. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. 

Charts with a controlled 7 Killings Star, steady Indirect Wealth Star and or Hurting Officer star usually do not settle for less in life. However, those who don't have these stars or structures may find themselves settling for mediocrity. Gen Powell's have the Eating God-Controlling-7 Killings formation. Hence he's able to achieve this. For those who don't have this in their chart, adopt this thinking anyway and you will see improvements very soon. 

 3. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting people. 

Agreed. Unfortunately the majority of our world is surrounded by such people. For some, they are even married to one ! 

Many times when we begin to go through good pillars, we start to become impatient with negative people. Because we start to see these traits that before we couldn't. 

If you have a good BaZi chart, chances are, you have low tolerance for losers. 

However, for those with pathetic charts - THEY ARE the negative thinking / negative acting people! 

4. As you grow, your associates will change. Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you to stay where they are. Friends that don't help you climb will want you to crawl. Your friends will stretch your vision, or choke your dream.

A negative Companion Stars in BaZi chart problem. 

If you have this problem, you have to find a way to ged rid of all the losers in your life. Now, this can be very, very hard. It's hard when you grew up with those losers and have a sentimental attachment towards them. 

But if you want to change your destiny (when your destiny chart is filled with negative companion or 7 killing stars), you must find a way to detach yourself from your loser friends. 

5.Never receive counsel from unproductive people. 

It is easier for those with better BaZi charts to recognize unproductive people and avoid them like the plague. But for the majority of the people with below average BaZi and or for those who are going through a bad luck pillar (or are affected by bad feng shui) - they ALWAYS tend to seek counsel from unproductive friends!! And they usually don't even realise this until it's too late!

The sooner you recognize this, the sooner your luck will change for the better! 

6. Never discuss your problems with someone incapable of contributing to the solution, because those who never succeed themselves are always first to tell you how. 

People with a "resource star" problem tend to fall for this all the time. People with ungrateful punishments have the same problem too. Take note if you are one of them. 

7. Not everyone has a right to speak into your life. You are certain to get the worst of the bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person. 

The typical negative Direct Officer problem. These are people who like to 'check with everyone' before making a decision. 

8. Don't follow anyone who's not going anywhere. 

I love this one. It's so true. 

Losers take advice from losers. If you want to break free from a bad luck pillar or lousy BaZi chart - you must learn to recognize this fact! There are many losers out there. Do your homework before you follow their advice. 

Learn only from those who walk the talk. Follow those who are SUCCESSFUL. 

9. With some people you spend an evening...with others you invest it. 

Seek for noblemen stars. Activate your noble stars! Then when you meet your mentor - invest your time with them. Learn from them. 

Unfortunately, many people like to loiter. Especially those with negative earth elements in their chart. Their time is 'spent' with their useless buddies.... Drinking, partying, gossiping, talking nonsense...basically loitering. 

Time is a precious commodity. Invest wisely. 

10. Be careful where you stop to inquire for directions along the road of life. 

Sometimes it's better to keep on going...not quitting...until you succeed. If your BaZi cycle is great - by all means - go all out. Why stop just to doubt yourself? People with self-punishment in the chart tend to have this problem. 

Sometimes bad things happen to us in order to prepare us for greater things to come. This is when students ask me - how come they are having a 'bad year' even when they are supposed to be in a good 10-year cycle. 

11. If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl...But, if you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great heights. 

This applies more to water people, or people with excessive water in their chart. Water assimilates the fastest. You become who you associate with. 

Wood people, especially Jia Wood and Yang Earth people tend to stay uninfluenced despite their association. 

12. Never make someone a priority when you are only an option for them. 

This depends on the quality of your Friend star in your chart. Or if you have an excessive metal-water problem - you normally don't see your self worth easily."
