We went to Masjid at Bandar Utama for Friday prayer. Me, Raimy and Syed Ali. Raimy nak belanja briyani. Top Briyani in town as he said. From Menara TM Pantai Bahru, they fetched me just to belanja briyani at Bandar Utama. Rasa macam bos duduk kat belakang. Good unit trust consultants.
Raimy saja bawak jalan yang normal people tak lalu punya to avoid jam. Lalu depan rumah Ungku Aziz la, tup-tup keluar kat tol near to Eastin Hotel. Ingat dah sampai masjid. Anyway you all kalau sesat kat PJ area ni, tanyalah Raimy, semua jalan ceruk PJ ni dia tahu.
Sampai near to masjid cari parking, orang dah nak azan ni. Nampaknya kena makan briyani lepas solat Jumaat. I dah cakap kat diaorang sunnah hari Jumaat ni makan selepas solah. Diaorang tak percaya. Dia kata kena makan dulu, nanti asyik ingat briyani je dalam solah. Last-last kena ikut sunnah jugak.
OK why don’t follow the crowd? Masa nak parking, masa dah time. Kereta queueu nak parking panjang, I cakap diaorang don’t follow them, don’t follow the crowd. So Raimy did it. Kita cari tempat yang terbaik untuk parking without ikut orang ramai2. So kita pun dapat parking, tak perlu double parking nanti kena keluar masjid awal sebab block kereta lain. Melepas la briyani nanti. Jarang-jarang dapat downline belanja ni.
Morale of the story here, if you want to get the best out of life, don’t follow the crowd. The crowd is the average. Don’t be average, be the best. Why don’t follow the crowd. You know in business, 90% of business registered in year 1 gone disappear in year 2 of their operation. Only 10% survive. So you want to follow the 90% or the 10%.
Sama jugak in MLM business or unit trust business or takaful business even in makan gaji (corporate life), if you follow the crowd, you go nowhere. In MLM for example, they said the business is about duplication. I agree. But if you duplicate the 90% people, where do you lead to. You answer. Some MLM leaders don’t tell the truth or don’t tell the whole picture how they can become successful. People start copying the 90% pattern end up average and disappear then join another company then another company.
I bought a report from USA (not sold in any bookstore here or even in US) and it revealed that in business whether takaful, insurance, unit trust, mutual fund, unit amanah or MLM, there are two things that you must have so that you can achieve success. Kalau nak tahu datanglah kita punya training…
