Aku, 48 tahun!


Hari ini aku genap 48 tahun. Macam tak percaya umur aku dah 48 tahun. Rasa cepat sungguh masa berlalu. Sometimes I wonder, rasanya baru semalam aku aku berumur 22 tahun. Masa tu, aku baru grad dari Univ. Masa itu, masih aku ingat … aku merasakan untuk sampai umur menghampiri 50 tahun ini akan mengambil masa yang cukup lama. Sedar-sedar dah sampai aku ke umur ini.
.

Apa yang aku capai? Soalan ini sememangnya soalan cepumas. Memang rasa gayat jugak. Aku dah bersediakah untuk balik mengadap Dia? Lagi aku gayat. Baru beberapa malam lepas, tetiba datang satu suara dalam tidur aku yang bertanyakan pada aku samada aku masih hidup atau sudah mati? Berderau darah aku. Aku terus terjaga dari tidur. Semua jenis peluh timbul. Peluh jantan ... peluh betina. Perggghhhhhhhhhh ...

Tapi bila dikenangkan apa yang telah aku lalui, macam-macam perkara yang baik telah aku kecapi. Tak kan aku nak tutup mata mengenai hal-hal yang baik ini. Aku mesti dan sememangnya aku sangat bersyukur dengan pemberianNya.


Apa pun, akan aku gunakan masa-masa yang masih ada di tangan aku ini untuk capai matlamat-matlamat aku. Tak guna nak ingat benda-benda yang menyerabutkan fikiran. After all, macam kata seorang kawan aku tu, selagi kita bernyawa, selagi itu kita muda. Kita hanya tua bila dah masuk kubur. Aku senyum sendirian. Betul jugak kata kawan aku ini. Buat apa nak serabut-serabut. Live to the fullest! As long aku follow Perintah Tuhan dan ikut cara Rasul, aku will be ok.

Satu wish aku. Aku harap negara Malaysia ini akan terus kekal makmur. Aku harap penduduknya terus proaktif dan produktif. Tu sebab aku suka satu lagu yang bertajuk ‘Gemuruh Suara’ ini. Sempena aku 48 tahun ini, aku harap aku dan seluruh penduduk negara ini renung dan amal kata-kata dalam lagu ini. Mari kira renungi kata-kata lirik ini dalam video di bawah ini.



Moga Allah redhai aku, famili aku, sahabat-sahabat aku dan seluruh manusia di muka bumi ini. Ameen ...

A Life Worth Saving

.
This is a short but powerful story about living each day to the fullest. Hope you enjoy this inspirational story and find words of wisdom in it. Be sure to live each day and count your blessings for each day

A man risked his life by swimming through the treacherous riptide to save a youngster being swept out to sea.

After the child recovered from the harrowing experience, he said to the man, "Thank you for saving my life.

The man looked into the little boy's eyes and said, "That's okay, kid. Just make sure your life was worth saving."

End of Story
.
Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens. - Kahlil Gibran

Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day; live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have. It is later than you think. - Horace

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. - Winston Churchill

Be Good to Yourself




Trust yourself. You know what you want and need.

Put yourself first. You can't be anything for anybody else unless you take care of yourself.

Let your feelings be known. They are important.Express your opinions. It's good to hear yourself talk.

Value your thinking. You do it well. Take the time and space you need. Even if other people are wanting something from you.

When you need something, don't talk yourself out of it. Even if you can't have it, it's ok to need.When you are scared, let someone know. Isolating yourself when you're scared makes it worse.

When you feel like running away, let yourself feel the scare. Think about what you fear will happen and decide what you need to do. When you're angry, let yourself feel the anger.

Decide what you want to do. Just feel it, express it, or take some action. When you're sad, think about what would be comforting.

When you're hurt, tell the person who hurt you. Keeping it inside makes it grow. When you have work to do and you don't want to do it, decide what really needs to be done and what can wait.


When you want something from someone else, ask. You'll be okay if they say no. Asking is being true to yourself. When you need help, ask. Trust people to say no if they don't want to give.

When people turn you down, it usually has to do with them, and not with you. Ask someone else for what you need. When you feel alone, know there are people who want to be with you. Fantasize what it would be like to be with each of them. Decide if you want to make that happen.

When you feel anxious, let yourself know that in your head. You've moved into the future to something scaryand your body has gotten up the energy for it. Come back to the present. When you want to say something loving to someone, go ahead. Expressing your feeling is not a commitment

When someone yells at you, physically support yourself by relaxing into your chair or putting your feet firmly on the floor. Remember to breathe. Think about the message they are trying to get across to you.

When you're harassing yourself, stop. You do it when you need something. Figure out what you need and get it. When everything seems wrong, you are overwhelmed and need some comforting. Ask for it. Afterwards, you can think about what you need to do.

L@W

Beberapa hari yang lepas, Aku telah diminta untuk memberi satu ‘talk’ selama ½ hari untuk satu Bahagian dalam TNB. Bahagian ini akan mengadakan sessi teambuilding mereka. Dan aku merupakan speaker yang terakhir untuk sessi ini. Dalam kata lain, aku harus menggulung dan merumus sessi ini. Bukan satu kerja yang senang dan memang aku tidak pernah melaksanakan ini semua. Namun atas dasar ‘there will always be the 1st time’ punya konsep aku buat saja.
.
Terus terang aku katakan, sampai ke saat-saat akhir aku masih tidak finalize approach aku bagi sessi ini. Ada saja yang tak kena. Aku berpendapat, untuk finalize ini semua, aku mesti dapatkan some feedback apa yang telah berlaku dalam sessi ini. Itulah sebabnya pada malam kedua mereka disini, sengaja aku dok perhati apa yang mereka buat dan bagaimana ‘feel’ sessi ini. Mujur aku duduk dalam sessi malam itu. Sudahnya aku nampak apa bentuk approach perlu aku buat. Penting sangat aku rasakan ini semua agar apa yang akan aku sampaikan itu betul-betul di ‘tailor made’ untuk mereka. No wonder orang bayar mahal untuk kerja-kerja sebegini. Bukan senang! Perlu betul-betul menjiwai ini semua jika mahukan hasil yang benar-benar ummp.
.
Aku dapati mereka ini merupakan satu kumpulan yang punya pengalaman yang cukup tinggi dalam kerja masing-masing. Tetapi biasalah, bila kita telah punya pengalaman tinggi, mudah kita jadi alpa. Kita tidak mudah menerima benda baru atau perubahan. Sudahnya kita akan fokus kepada perkara remeh temeh seperti tak boleh tengok orang lebih dan politiking Bahaya sangat jika kita begini. Rugi sangat jika kita begini.

Approach aku untuk menangani isu-isu ini sebenarnya mudah sahaja. Pertama sekali aku mesti sedarkan mereka siapa dan apa sebenarnya kemampuan mereka. Itu aku buat melalui konsep stick person. Aku mahu mereka jelas bahawa melalui stick person itu, mudah mereka mengenalpasti masalah mereka dan mencari penyelesaian terhadap masalah mereka itu.

Seterusnya, aku mahu mereka kenal apa erti kepimpinan. Aku mahu mereka paham bahawa kepimpinan bermakna keupayaan untuk mempengaruhi dan bukan yang bersangkutan dengan pangkat. Mereka mesti tahu bahawa mereka bertanggungjawab sepenuhnya untuk mempengaruhi diri mereka dan orang-orang yang mereka pimpin terhadap kepentingan mencapai matlamat peribadi di tempat kerja yang sejajar dengan kehendak organisasi mereka. Kenapa? Itulah cara terbaik untuk menggunakan diri masing-masing! Jika tidak, itulah sebabnya mudah sangat diri mereka terjerumus kepada soal-soal remeh temeh yang disebutkan di atas.
.
Selain dari itu, aku mesti paku pemikiran mereka bahawa tak guna kita nak buruk sangka sesama mereka. After all, kita semua datang kerja nak cari makan. Nak beri nafkah kepada our love ones and diri sendiri. Murni sungguh niat itu. Tak kan nak cemari niat-niat ini dengan perbuatan-perbuatan negatif di tempat kerja? Aku mahu mereka nampak bahawa pilihan untuk bekerja sama agar semua untung itu merupakan pilihan yang lebih bermakna. Sudahnya aku rasa ’games lego’ itu aku harap dapat membawa kepada tercapai maksud ini.
.
Aku namakan program ini ’Leadership @ Work’ atau ringkasnya L@W. Catchy nama ni. So malam sebelum presentation tu aku finalise L@W ini. Hati aku rasa selesa dan kalau ikut dari pengalaman lepas, ini tanda everything will be ok. Dan lepas aku present L@W ini pada esok harinya, dapat aku rasakan memang approach aku ini menjadi. Lega. Ini dibuktikan dengan kata-kata penutup dari Vice President mereka bahawa beliau puas hati bahawa sessi ini mencapai maksud beliau. Lega lagi sekali!

Sudahnya tak pasal-pasal aku telah dapat wujudkan satu lagi program ½ hari yang dapat aku offer kepada public yang namanya simply L@W!. Syukur ... Cubalah attend L@W ini. You all will never regret ...!

Make a Difference

Dear Blog, I love this story so much. Must share with you.



There is a story many years ago of an elementary teacher. Her name was Mrs. Thompson. And as she stood in front of her 5th grade class on the very first day of school, she told the children a lie. She looked at her students and said that she loved them all the same. But that was impossible, because there in the front row, slumped in his seat, was a little boy named Teddy Stoddard. Mrs. Thompson had watched Teddy the year before and noticed that he didn't play well with the other children, that his clothes were messy and that he constantly needed a bath. And Teddy could be unpleasant. It got to the point where Mrs. Thompson would actually take delight in marking his papers with a broad red pen, making bold X's and then putting a big "F" at the top of his papers.

At the school where Mrs. Thompson taught, she was required to review each child's past records and she put Teddy's off until last. However, when she reviewed his file, she was in for a surprise. Teddy's first grade teacher wrote, "Teddy is a bright child with a ready laugh. He does his work neatly and has good manners he is a joy to be around."

His second grade teacher wrote, "Teddy is an excellent student, well-liked by his classmates, but he is troubled because his mother has a terminal illness and life at home must be a struggle." His third grade teacher wrote, "His mother's death has been hard on him. He tries to do his best but his father doesn't show much interest and his home life will soon affect him if some steps aren't taken." Teddy's fourth grade teacher wrote, "Teddy is withdrawn and doesn't show much interest in school. He doesn't have many friends and sometimes sleeps in class."

By now, Mrs. Thompson realized the problem and she was ashamed of herself. She felt even worse when her students brought her presents for Teacher’s Day wrapped in beautiful ribbons and bright paper, except for Teddy's. His present was clumsily wrapped in the heavy, brown paper that he got from a grocery bag. Mrs. Thompson took pains to open it in the middle of the other presents. Some of the children started to laugh when she found a rhinestone bracelet with some of the stones missing and a bottle that was one quarter full of perfume.

But she stifled the children's' laughter when she exclaimed how pretty the bracelet was, putting it on, and dabbing some of the perfume on her wrist.

Teddy Stoddard stayed after school that day just long enough to say, "Mrs. Thompson, today you smelled just like my Mom, used to." After the children, left she cried for at least an hour,. On that very day, she quit teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic. Instead, she began to teach children.

Mrs. Thompson paid particular attention to Teddy. As she worked with him, his mind seemed to come alive. The more she encouraged him, the faster he responded. By the end of the year, Teddy had become one of the smartest children in the class. A year later, she found a note under her door, from Teddy, telling her that she was still the best teacher he ever had in his whole life. Six years went by before she got another note from Teddy. He then wrote that he had finished high school, second in his class, and she was still the best teacher he ever had in his whole life.

Four years after that, she got another letter, saying that while things had been tough at times, he'd stayed in school, had stuck with it, and would soon graduate from college with the highest of honours. He assured Mrs. Thompson that she was still the best and favorite teacher he ever had in his whole life.

Then four more years passed and yet another letter came. This time he explained that after he got his bachelor's degree, he decided to go a little further. The letter explained that she was still the best and favorite teacher he ever had. But now his name was little longer. The letter was signed, Theodore F. Stoddard, M.D.

The story doesn't end there. You see, there was yet another letter that spring. Teddy said he'd met this girl and was going to be married. He explained that his father had died a couple of years and he was wondering if Mrs. Thompson might agree to sit the place at the wedding that was usually reserved for the mother of the groom. Of course, Mrs. Thompson did. And guess what? She wore that bracelet, the one with several rhinestones missing. And she made sure she was wearing the perfume that Teddy gave her during that fateful Teacher’s Day.

They hugged each other and Dr. Stoddard whispered in Mrs. Thompson's ear, "Thank you, Mrs. Thompson, for believing in me. Thank you so much for make me feel important and showing me that I could make a difference." Mrs. Thompson, with tears in her eyes, whispered back. She said, "Teddy, you have it all wrong. You were the one who taught me that I could make a difference. I didn't know how to teach until I met you."

The purpose of life is not to be happy - but to matter, to be productive, to be useful and to have it make some difference that you have lived at all. The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit. You can never tell what type of impact you may have on another's life by your actions, or lack of actions. Please consider this fact in your venture through life and just try to make a difference in someone else's life today.

SMALL NOTE TO ALL

Teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own.

Apa yang aku pelajari di Mesir.


Malam semalam, aku pulang dari Alexandria, Mesir. Aku rasa masa berjalan begitu pantas. Sedar-sedar aku telah berada balik di rumah aku. Memang perjalanan ini merupakan satu pengalaman berharga sebab macam-macam benda yang aku jumpa. Yang baik maupun sebaliknya. Apa yang aku pelajari dari perjalanan ini? Teringin aku nak catatkan disini untuk dijadikan tauladan aku di masa depan.

Pertama sekali, aku memang tidak menjangka aku akan ke sana. Kalau ikutkan segala kekangan dan logik, memang aku tidak berupaya ke sana. Tapi inilah dia kuasa Tuhan. Kalau Tuhan dah tentukan aku akan kesana walau apapun kekangan yang ada, aku tetap juga akan sampai ke sana. Aku rasa terlalu humble dengan anugerah Tuhan ini. Syukur banyak-banyak pada Dia.
.
Kedua, aku lihat walau manusia itu datang dari berbagai latarbelakang, tetapi ’concern’ mereka tetap sama. Tak kisah siapa kita, kita amat prihatin tentang apa yang akan terjadi kepada our love ones, samada kita punya masa depan dan wujud keinginan untuk sangka baik antara kita. Aku terjumpa seorang Mesir ini dalam tram. Bila dia tahu aku dari Malaysia dan seagama dengan beliau, bukan main seronoknya dia. Sungguh-sungguh dia ajak aku makan di rumahnya. Namun aku terpaksa menolaknya. Nampak unsur hampa pada air mukanya. Hebat nilai persaudaraan yang berlandaskan sangka baik ini! Maha Hebat Tuhan!

Ketiga, manusia ini amat takut jika mereka tidak mempunyai sumber ekonomi yang kukuh. Mereka sanggup buat apa sahaja demi untuk mengelak dari menerima bahana ekonomi ini. Aku lihat di Mesir ini, pertandingan untuk membina sumber ekonomi terlalu intense. Mungkin itu disebabkan kerana kekurangan peluang. Sudahnya itulah bila tiba pasal duit, aku lihat perangai mereka macam orang kemaruk. Pantang lepa. Sure kena pancung!.
.
Bila aku kenangkan peluang yang ada di Malaysia, aku jadi malu sebenarnya. Kita di Malaysia peluangnya melimpah ruah. Tetapi kita jadi very choosy sebab manja kot...? Lihat saja bagaimana rakyat negara luar berduyun-duyun datang ke Malaysia ... Aku berazam sungguh-sungguh untuk usahakan agar PPB3K dapat duduk pada tahap yang aku inginkan dan sumber ekonomi aku.

Keempat, aku rasa helpless bila lihat macam anak aku yang seorang ini perlu survive kat Alexandria ini. Kenapa aku jadi begitu? Sebab aku sangat sayangkan anak-anak aku. Pada pikir aku, I’m totally responsible to make sure they are OK. Jadi bila jadi keadaan macam ini, itu yang timbul rasa helpless tu. Tapi lama-lama timbul kesedaran ini. Kesedaran yang menyatakan bahawa yang mengawasi gerak geri kita ini, yang beri kita rezeki dan yang menentukan baik buruk kita ini ialah Tuhan. Terasa aku ingin terus sujud kepada Dia …
.
Kelima, aku rasa amat bersyukur aku di lahirkan di Malaysia. Kita di Malaysia, prasarana sosial kita cukup bagus. Aku bertanya kepada diri aku mengapa kita di Malaysia mampu membina ini semua dan tidak seperti di negara Mesir ini? Aku ingin sekali tahu jawapannya. Pikir punya pikir, aku realized root cause kepada perkara ini ialah jenis kepimpinan yang ada bagi sesebuah negara itu. Bukan aku mahu bercakap pasal politik tetapi aku hanya mahu bercakap mengenai outcomes sesuatu kepimpinan itu. Aku mahu melihat keadaan ini secara objektif. Tidak ada silap mata mengenainya kalau aku katakan bahawa bila outcomes kepimpinan itu bagus itu bermakna kepimpinan negara itu bagus. Ianya harus juga benar jika keadaan sebaliknya berlaku.
.
Sudahnya aku nampak jelas, apa yang ada dalam PPB3K itu amat penting bagi membina outcomes yang lebih positif. Alangkah bagusnya kalau kepimpinan negara ini punya peluang untuk melihat apa yang ada dalam PPB3K ini. Sure kerja mereka jadi lebih ringan!

Teman


Teman merupakan keperluan yang cukup penting di waktu ini terutama untuk jalani hidup yang makmur. Namun bila disebut perkataan teman, ramai yang mengeluh kerana ramai merasakan teman hanya wujud ketika keadaan senang tidak ketika susah. Kenapa jadi begitu? Lagu dibawah amat relevan kita renungi.

Adakah kita punya teman seperti yang digambarkan oleh kata-kata dalam lagu ini? Adakah kita kita sedar kita perlu berusaha untuk mempunyai teman seperti yang digambarkan dalam lagu ini? Adakah kita berusaha ke arah itu?

Mengapa PPB3K diwujudkan?

.
Ramai di antara kita ini hidupnya terlalu sebok. Sebok kerja. Sebok dengan famili dan macam-macam jenis sebok lagi. Seolah-olah masa 24 jam itu tidak cukup! Tapi bila ditanya apa yang kita capai dalam kesebokan kita. Kita garu kepala. Muka kita nampak serabut. Sudahnya jawapan kita ... alah tak payah pikir lah hal tu ... saya sebok ... tak ada masa nak pikirlah!

Tapi kita semua tahu, dalam diam-diam kita selalu dihantui soalan-soalan sebegitu. Apa sebenarnya aku nak capai? Apa sebenarnya tujuan hidup aku ni? Cukupkah sekadar makan, kerja, makan, kerja? Kalau aku tahu apa yang aku nak, bolehkah aku capai? Mampukah aku? Kalau dibiarkan begini, sedar-sedar aku dah tua? Lagi pening. Tu la kekadang kalau soalan-soalan begini kita layan sebelum tidur, memang tak tidur lah jawabnya. Stress kita!

Mengenangkan hal di atas, itulah sebabnya modul ’Anda Dilahirkan Berjaya’ (ADB) diwujudkan. Melalui ADB ini nanti banyak persoalan di atas dapat kita jawab dan sudahnya mudah untuk kita ambil tindakan. Dalam modul ini diterangkan siapa sebenarnya manusia itu (kitalah!) dan bagaimana nak bina hidup yang bermakna walaupun dalam keadaan huru hara kita ini.
.
Selepas mengikuti ADB, kita akan mulai sedari bahawa punca utama untuk bahagia dalam dunia ini ialah kita perlu pelihara hati kita. Kalau hati bersih, diri kita akan bersih. Bukan itu saja, sekeliling kita pun turut bersih. Senang cakap tapi bagaimana? Itulah sebab kita perlu dengar apa kata Uztaz Hairuddin dalam modul ’My Heart’ (MH). Uztaz akan terangkan satu cara yang cukup mudah dan berkesan bagaimana nak bersih hati. Cara Uztaz Hairudin memang lain dari yang lain. Cukup berkesan!
.
Bila kita dah kenali diri dan tahu betapa berharga diri kita, kekadang datang pertanyaan dalam diri kita ini mengapa orang lain macam senang saja bina idea untuk jana pendapatan atau bina kehidupan yang lebih baik. Mereka ini seolah macam penuh dengan kreativiti dan inovasi. Puas kita nyanyi lagu kreativiti atau laung slogan kreativiti sana sini tetapi kita macam tu jugak. Sebenarnya kita perlu kenal asas-asas kreativiti dan ceritanya ada dalam modul ’Kreativiti untuk Berjaya’ (KUB). Dalam KUB, kita akan lihat kreativiti itu sebenarnya boleh dipelajari dan sudahnya semua mampu jadi kreatif.
.
Dalam banyak perkara jika kita nak capai apa yang kita mahukan, kita perlu bekerjasama dengan orang lain. Masalahnya, senang laungkan pentingnya kita bekerjasama tetapi bagaimana? Itulah masalah utama kita. Kekadang tu, disebabkan salah seorang dari kita tak suka batang hidung kawannya, langsung tak boleh bekerjasama. Mungkin saya ‘exaggerate’ soal ini tetapi saya yakin semua kita setuju ini memang masalah kita. Sebab itu kita perlu tahu macam mana nak bina suasana kerjasama yang baik. Sebab itu modul ’Kami Berjaya Part 1’ (KB1) diwujudkan. KB1 akan bimbing kita bagaimana nak bina semangat kerjasama yang utuh. Sudahnya banyak kerja boleh dicapai pada sumber yang paling optima.
.
Cerita kerjasama ini tidak lengkap jika kita tidak tahu bagaimana melaksana proses kerja berpasukan yang mampu membawa kita capai matlamat kita pada kadar paling optima. Kalau setakat kita ini harmoni sesama kawan-kawan dalam satu pasukan memang tak cukup. Sebab itu ’Kami Berjaya Part 2’ (KB2) diwujudkan. KB2 akan bimbing bagaimana mencapai matlamat pasukan kita berdasarkan satu proses yang cukup mudah, praktikal dan berkesan.
.
Ada ketika-ketika tertentu kita diminta memimpin satu-satu kumpulan. Tambah jika orang lain lihat kita ini berwibawa. (Berwibawa wujud bila kita mula tunjukkan hasil dari modul-modul di atas). Tetapi biasalah nak memimpin bukannya senang. Tapi yang bagusnya, memimpin ini boleh kita pelajari. Bukan terus lahir dalam diri kita sebagaimana kata sesetengah pihak. Memimpin banyak dikaitkan dengan sejauh mana kita mampu ’mempengaruhi’ orang lain buat apa yang kita mahu mereka lakukan. Jika tidak, memang dera hidup kita. Sebab itu modul ’Pimpinan Berjaya part 1’ (PB1) diwujudkan. PB1 akan fokus untuk bina keupayaan ’mempengaruhi’.
.

Dalam memimpin, kita perlu punya gambaran besar apa yang penting dalam satu-satu kumpulan itu. Jika tidak, itu yang kita dengar kata orang, ”Dia itu serabutlah, asyik tumpu kepada perkara remeh-temeh”. Untuk itu ’Pimpinan Berjaya part 2’ (PB2) diwujudkan. Melalui PB2, kita akan dibimbing menggunakan beberapa alat-alat pengurusan untuk memimpin dengan berkesan.
.
Bila semua kita punya ilmu-ilmu asas di atas, apa jadi dengan kita? Saya yakin sekurang-kurangnya kita dapat elak keadaan seperti yang digambarkan dalam perenggan 1 dan 2 artikel ini. Cuba bayangkan jika semua kita dalam satu kumpulan (organisasi, masyarakat, pusat pendidikan dan sebagainya) mempunyai ilmu-ilmu asas ini? Aman kumpulan kita! Hebat kumpulan kita!

Gabungan setiap modul-modul di atas membentuk satu siri program yang dipanggil Program Produktiviti Bersepadu 3K (Kesedaran Diri - Kesedaran Kerja Berpasukan - Kesedaran Kepimpinan) atau nama ringkasnya PPB3K. Semua ilmu dalam PPB3K ini mudah tapi masalah dengan kita ialah perkara mudah inilah yang kita tidak tahu atau terlepas pandang. Tidak kisah siapa kita. Kaya atau tidak. Berpangkat atau tidak. Ramai di antara kita perlukan ilmu-ilmu ini. Tambah pula setiap modul ini akan menggunakan satu konsep diri yang dipanggil konsep ’Stick Person’ pasti menjanjikan satu kefahaman yang mudah tapi jarang diketahui orang.


Elakkan kita dari terus membuang masa. Ambil tindakan untuk jalani program ini. Hubungi saya untuk keterangan lanjut. Saya tunggu anda.

Sejahtera-Bahagia-Kaya
