Why I started this blog
I created this blog as a way to share my lessons learned with my little brother who is now in his 20s. (That is why all the articles here are called ‘letters’, because they are meant to be letters to my brother).
I remember the struggles when I first got out of school – trying to get my first job, paying off student loans, moving away from home, getting my first car, getting married, buying my first home, and so on…all these without anyone’s help.
Yes, it is overwhelming. Yes, it is confusing. Yes, you don’t know who you can trust, who you can go to, and who you can rely on in tough times. I’ve been there and I understand your struggles.
The best resources I could go to at the time were books –books about how to prepare for interviews, books about how to be more productive, books about managing my time and finances, books about getting out of debts, books about investing, and books about personal growth and fulfillment.
These books helped me through my difficult times and taught me invaluable lessons that no one ever mentioned/taught me in life.
Why ‘The Millionaire’?
I saw this quote by Jim Rohn about a year ago (in 2018), and it totally changed my perspective in life:
Set a goal to become a millionaire for what it makes of you to achieve it. Do it for the skills you have to learn and the person you have to become.Jim Rohn
Becoming a millionaire wasn’t something that I would even thought of. All I was taught growing up was to get a good education (i.e. graduate from university), get a stable job (preferably in the government), then work 30-40 years until you can enjoy life in retirement.
This quote challenged me to think bigger and to push myself to grow and become someone that no one in my family have ever done before.
It is now my personal goal to become a millionaire in the next 10 years. I invite you to take on this challenge as a way to improve yourself and to become a better person.
Why ‘the Library’?
Library is filled with knowledge and discovery. It is a scared place dedicated to the pursue of excellence. That’s why I’ve dedicated this blog to document and to share my study of success, wealth and happiness.
If you want to be wealthy, study wealth.
If you want to be healthy, study health.
If you want to be happy, study happiness.Jim Rohn
Study means ‘the devotion of time and attention to acquiring knowledge…’. It also means ‘a detailed investigation and analysis of a subject or situation’.
So many people want to be rich, but all they do is spend money on lotteries and compliant about the economy instead of investing their time and energy to learn how to get rich and be wealthy.
So many people want to be healthy, yet they don’t spend the time to do the research and commit to the diet and exercises that would give them the results.
So many people want to be happy, but how many of them actually spend the time to cultivate happiness and look into the psychology behind their emotions and fulfillment?
Do you want to be successful?
Do you be wealthy?
Do you want to be happy?
