The good, the bad, and the ugly
My Fellow Marketers like to tell the story of their struggle to do well. They tell it to try to inspire people. Honestly inspiration is not really what I’m after.I hope people can take something from it but really I’m just telling this story because its mine to tell. In it, as you read through the steps I went through to become the person I am today, you’ll probably notice that some things are good, some things are bad, however all of it is true.
So I guess the big question is where do I start? My childhood has little to do with anything so I guess the best place to start is when I was a young adult in my late teens and early 20’s.
While I wish I could say that these where good years the sad truth is that they where some of the worst of my life. After turning 18 and finishing high school I decided to leave my parents house, go out on my own, and start making my way. However ‘my way’ quickly turned into the wrong way as I forgot any youthful ambition in favor of the pleasures of the world.
By the time I was 19 years old I was drinking a lot.I was working at Petronas as a sailor(seamen)in a LNG tanker ship.I travel around the world. I chased girls.I fought guys.I had zero ambition and no future and I didn’t care one bit. I did what I wanted, when I wanted. I had no responsibility which was actually a good thing because its not like anyone could have counted on me anyway.Below is a picture of where I worked.
Of all the things that where bad about that time of my life, probably the worst was the lack of ambition. I’m ashamed to admit that I had none. Though I worked just enough to pay the moderate of my lifestyle, buy booze, have fun and get just enough food to keep myself alive (because that was a waste of money) beyond that I cared nothing about improving myself. Honestly looking back on it now, I really don’t know why. That’s just the way I was I guess. A total waste.
By 24,I ended up married the girl who I love from my long relationship in my school years. I think it must have been a testament to my charm that I
somehow convinced her that I was a decent guy. Or perhaps she just saw a potential in me that I didn’t see in myself. Or perhaps she was just young and naive.
With the new home and new relationship came a new outlook. I was still drinking like a fish, but for perhaps the first time I had a sense of wanting to improve myself.I had a sense of self respect. I stopped working as a sailor in 2002 and became a full time house husband and searching for making money in the internet.
It due to my wife destiny that she got snatch by a robber when she is pregnant for 7 month due and with that incident I quit my job as a sailor and take care everything about the household matter cause my wife is working as an executive in a reputable bank.
In 2002 being unemployed and taking responsibility to be a househusband and while searching and learning marketing and make money online and taking care of my 3 kids it was my worst year until 2009 I had information overload and diagnosed as a patient of mental illness during that time I didn’t make any money(for 7 years I struggle to make money online),it was so depress for my family that I being held 1 year in mental hospital.
Below is the proof of my illness.
I felt Blessed by GOD although I got the mental illness I still remember who I am and what I have done over the past year from learning in the internet I had more knowledge that you could imagine.In 2011 I recovered from my mental illness and I worked hard. Went in early. Stayed late. I offered to work Saturdays when no one else wanted to. Over time I worked my way up the pay scale and began saving money, an effort which was assisted by the fact that I was now living in a household with two incomes and being young we had little expenses and no debt.My newfound ambitions did not stop with working hard though. After a while I found I had a fair amount of cash saved and I promptly looked for ways to invest it. All this time I was making a good living but I was not living good. I was living minimally in order to save as much money as possible so I could invest it into different ventures. The one thing I lacked for sure was stability, I was all over the place, doing all kinds of things. I just didn’t feel like I found what ‘my thing’ was yet.
Until one day(2013) I meet my two mentor T Harv Eker and Dr Azizan Osman and they lead me to my inner powerful potential and in 2014 was born the company called OMC Online Marketing Centre dedicated to help people to be success in the Online Marketing Business.In 1 year time my company was value at 1.2 million.
Runnіng a blоg like thіѕ is nоt еаѕу.Prоduсt vendors undеrѕtаndаblу tеnd to gеt a bit рееvіѕh when I рublісlу роіnt оut flаwѕ іn thеіr рrоduсtѕ even thоugh I always trу tо tell thеm аbоut аnу іѕѕuеѕ I find (and іf possible hеlр thеm fix them)before I рublіѕh mу rеvіеw.Thе rеѕроnѕеѕ I have gоttеn frоm vеndоrѕ whоѕе products I have rеjесtеd hаѕ been wіdе.Some simply rеfuѕе tо tаlk tо mе аftеrwаrdѕ. Sоmе hаvе thrеаtеnеd me (lеgаllу, рrоfеѕѕіоnаllу, аnd еvеn physically).Some have trіеd to discredit mе. Sоmе hаvе trіеd tо gеt me ostracized by оthеr реорlе іn thіѕ buѕіnеѕѕ аnd some have ostracized mе.But thrоugh іt аll, after twо уеаrѕ nоw of doing thіѕ, I hаvе stuck tо the ѕаmе principle аѕ whеn I first started.I say whаt I think аbоut the product I’m rеvіеwіng, gооd оr bаd, wіthоut hоldіng bасk.
Now in 2017 I rеvіеw several рrоduсtѕ a mоnth. Whеn I аррrоvе a рrоduсt, bесаuѕе bеlіеvе іtѕ a wоrth whіlе іnvеѕtmеnt,I do put an affiliate link аt thе bоttоm оf thе review and this іѕ how I’m compensated for the hоurѕ оf testing I put іn tо mаkе thе rеvіеw. When I don’t аррrоvе the рrоduсt thеrе іѕ nо аffіlіаtе lіnk аnd instead I’m compensated with thе knоwlеdgе that I may hаvе hеlреd ѕаvе ѕоmеоnе frоm potentially wаѕtіng thеіr mоnеу.
So that’s my story. Its the shorted version obviously as going over every little detail would take a very long time. However that’s what happened basically and the things I experienced in order to get to the point where I’m at today. If there is one thing I have learned so far its the number one thing is taking action, its having motivation and believing in yourself. Its first having the desire to want more for yourself and then having the drive to make it happen. When I was young I lacked that however as things in my life changed, and I got older, I gained that drive and while it was not the smoothest road it was a road that eventually led to me doing better than frankly anyone, including myself, ever thought I would. But that’s not the best thing. Money is great and all, but for me the best thing is that I’m now doing something that helps people. I have earned the respect of people who trust me. To me that’s the greatest accomplishment of all.
