Are YOU living your Dream Life? – by Nancy Long

Are YOU set to be one of the millions of New Millionaires in the next 10 years?

Books have transformed my life again and again. Because of these books, I am living the life I always dream about when I was a child – Nancy Long.

I grew up in a small village near rubber plantations in then rural Northern Singapore. The house I lived in was an old wooden house with a roof made of coconut tree leaves. We had lots of unwanted guests in our household like rodents (certainly not one as cute as the rat in the Ratatouille movie). My dad was a school bus driver and my mom was a housewife. Life was tough and we barely got by with what my dad made from his bus service. Having a piece of cake or a bowl of fish-ball noodles was a rare luxury for us – Nancy Long.

From as young as 9 years old, I remembered I made a decision to study hard, get a good job and earn lots of money to take care of my parents and travel around the world. After finishing school, I started work as a clerk in the government service. My salary was a paltry S$175 per month. Three years later, my salary rose to a grand sum of S$210. I decided that the corporate world would pay me more, so I joined a company as a Secretary. Life in the corporate sector proved to be stressful with working hours ranging from 10 to 12 hours per day. After working my butt off for 7 years, my pay was barely S$1,000 per month.

I knew I was on the wrong side of the Wealth Equation – no time, no money, no mentors, no possibilities of wealth in the horizon, and no clue as to how I could change my life.

In 1979, my life was about to change forever. I was then attending a part-time Diploma course on Administrative Management. During one of the sessions, a lecturer, Mr Lim Boon Tong, encouraged the class to write down our goals on how much we wanted to earn in 5 years time. At the same time, he recommended us to read 2 books:

I wrote my goal: “I want to earn S$5,000 per month on or before 5 years time

He advised that we look at our goals 3 times a day. I read my goal every morning, evening and night. I even pasted my written goal on my dresser mirror and had another in my purse.

At the same time, I started reading the recommended book:”Think and Grow Rich“. After that, I went on to read: “How to Win Friends and Influence People“. The two books prepared me for a new life and a brand new career which allowed me to earn millions and millions of dollars in the years to come.

I was not looking for a get-rich-quick scheme. I wanted a legitimate business which would help me accumulate wealth steadily year by year over a long period of time. I knew from the “Thing and Grow Rich” book, that this could not be accomplished without hard, consistent work and continual self-improvement. Yes, I am an old-fashion marketeer at heart, who wanted a business that would benefit not only me but also my future clients.

But that is another story…. I’ll just leave you with one quote in the Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich” which has greatly influence my beliefs and actions in the years to come:

“Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon must inevitably come to pass.”

Paul J. Meyer quotes

Napoleon Hill

Other Quotes from Napoleon Hill:

“More gold has been mined from the thoughts of men than has been taken from the earth.”

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

Dale Carnegie Quotes about Friendships:

  • “When we hate our enemies, we are giving them power over us: power over our sleep, our appetites, our blood pressure, our health and our happiness. Our enemies would dance with joy if only they knew how they were worrying us, lacerating us, and getting even with us! Our hate is not hurting them at all, but our hate is turning our days and nights into a hellish turmoil.”

  • “You can close more business and make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get people interested in you.”

  • “If you want to win friends, make it a point to remember them. If you remember my name, you pay me a subtle compliment; you indicate that I have made an impression on you. Remember my name and you add to my feeling of importance.”

  • “When dealing with people, let us remember we are not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with creatures of emotion, creatures bustling with prejudices and motivated by pride and vanity.”

Dale Carnegie Quotes about Winning & Success:

  • “Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.”

  • “It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.”

  • “Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all.”

  • “Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.”

  • “You never achieve real success unless you like what you are doing.”

  • “Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.”

  • “Feeling sorry for yourself, and you present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have.”

  • “People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”

  • “You can conquer almost any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.”

  • “Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”

  • “First ask yourself: What is the worst that can happen? Then prepare to accept it. Then proceed to improve on the worst.”

  • “Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones tend to take care of themselves.”

  • “If you believe in what you are doing, then let nothing hold you up in your work. Much of the best work of the world has been done against seeming impossibilities. The thing is to get the work done.”

  • “Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.”

  • “If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy”

  • “Fear not those who argue but those who dodge.”

  • “Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude”

  • “Do the hard jobs first. The easy jobs will take care of themselves.”

  • “If you can’t sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there and worrying. It’s the worry that gets you, not the loss of sleep.”

  • “Many people think that if they were only in some other place, or had some other job, they would be happy. Well, that is doubtful. So get as much happiness out of what you are doing as you can and don’t put off being happy until some future date.”
