I have been extremely busy even before the last weekend. There were sudden policy changes over the project that my company is working on which in result causing me to go back at 3am in the morning. I am not the type who can stay up at night doing work so I hated that. After giving some thoughts, I think I can nag all day long but that will not change anything. I need to do something to change my situation. Eventually, I justify all my unsatisfactory towards building my career to complement my lifestyle.

I can't give up now, especially after reading this very interesting letter:

What School Don't Teach You About Money!

From the desk of Wendy Tan,
CEO, Globe Engineering Sdn Bhd
& Globe Success Learning Sdn Bhd

Dear Ashrufzz,

There are very few people in this world who can truly say, "I don't need to know about finances because I'm financially secure". Most people in fact, wonder why they aren't making more money than they already have. The other wish that most people have is to increase their savings for the future.

To improve your financial standing, you need to really look at how you treat money. What type of spending attitude you have towards money? Where did your 'Money Beliefs' come from?

I came from a very poor family and once thought that I was a nobody, and I did have problems in relationships and business that I was desperate to solve, just like everyone else. I credit the Money and You program in helping me initiate breaking my mental barriers. And I applaud you being open to resolve the things that obstruct your path to success by going through powerful programs like the Sales Ninja Training.

(Ashrufzz Note: There are plenty of money making programs in Kuala Lumpur alone)


Thinking is crucial because the quality of your thoughts will determine the quality of your life. But how do you start thinking in a more productive manner?

To achieve success, you have got to engage yourself in a thinking process that wealthy and happily successful people engage in…

This means removing any obstacle that blocks your success. It wasn't easy for me to embark on my fresh new crusade.

I had feared change, just like I'm sure at times you do too.

Really, once we are comfortable in a routine, we fear upsetting the status quo, and we fear what the future holds if we make drastic changes in our lives.

But we can't expect others to change for us. We can't expect our boss to change, our business partner to change, our spouse to change, our friends to change, our family to change, our parents, brothers or sisters to change, our children to change. Only we can do it for ourselves.

Try it.

Once you get rid of all the things that aren't working in your life, a feeling of empowerment and control over your own life will occur.

To start making changes though, it's absolutely crucial that you are completely honest with yourself. The very last thing that you want to do is be in denial of your current situation, financial or otherwise and rob yourself of a chance to make a difference in your life - designing the life you want to live.

Tonight, before you go to sleep, get a piece of paper out.

Write down what your goal in life is.

Then, write down what are the obstacles that block your progress towards that goal.

Next, write down what the changes you can do to move forward, to reach your goal.

Place these written notes somewhere where you can see it.

I know that these are elementary techniques, but your mind is a powerful tool. And doing this will actually help you visualize your goal.

Action beats In-Action. Do it and experience the changes yourself.

In my next letter, I will share with you the habit of millionaires I myself have used towards achieving Financial Freedom… dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World by Albert Einstein himself. It is the secret that makes people incredibly rich and all you have to do is to start small!

Wishing you COURAGE to go beyond your comfort zone & explore new horizons,

I would not say that changing career is easy, but it is certainly possible if you do the right things.
However, first of all you need to know what it is that will really make you happy before you go searching for another job.
