Tanda-tanda kandungan glukosa tinggi

Semalam saya berjumpa aka lepak bersama teman lama kerana hendak memulangkan sample baju utk membuat tempahan baju. Memang dah lam kenal kawan ini cuma kadang2 tidak berkempatan untuk berbual lama maklumlah masing-masing busy dengan kerja dan keluarga.

Sebelum ini memang nak jumpa dia tetapi hantar message tidak di reply , rasa pelik gak then bila call then dia reply bahawa dia tidak sihat cara cakap pun tak beberapa jelas. rasa macam cuak gak nak tahu gak sakit apa. entah macam mana minggu ni tergerak hati nak jumpa dia . So malam tadi dapatlah jumpa dia .

Tanya 'Kenapa dengan kau"  Kawan saya rupa2 sakit di mana dia kena tahun dalam wad selama 7 hari kerana kandungan glukosa tinggi iaitu 29 , doktor cakap pada 'normal' adalah 4-5 macam tulah. Sebelum dia jumpa doktor, dia cakap tiba-tiba mata dia rabun. So ingat sakit mata so pergilah buat cermin mata. Dah pakai rasa pening dan kadang-kadang rabun. So bila pergi jumpa doktor reading mata tidak menentu. Bila check darah pun tak boleh nak tak dapat detect. Then pergi hospital baru lah dapat tahu dan memang kena tahan dan macam biasa kena masuk air dan lain seperti anda nampak dalam hospital.

Mengikut apa yang diberitahu kawan saya , dia cakap dia ada kencing manis, darah tinggi tetapi dia terkejut lah ada kencing manis sebab dalam sejarah keluarga ada darah tinggi. Doktor ada tanya dia ada buat senaman tak , dia menang takde.
Doktor ada beritahu semasa umur 30 ke atas ini kesan-kesan dari pemakanan kita dan aktiviti harian akan nampak iaitu pelbagai penyakit akan timbul

Risau gak saya ini walaupun nampak muda dan badan slim heheheh tapi kurang melakukan senaman takut2 menjejaskan kesihatan diri.  Lagi-lagi asyik mengadap komputer jer. Basikal ada tapi dah boleh buat muzium hahahha.

Kekeliruan boleh menyebabkan pelbagai persepsi sama ada positive atau pun negatif. Isu 50 sen ini saya ada pos di FB saya , ada yang memberi komen yang membina ada dan ada yang sekadar mempertikaikan kenyataan saya tanpa memberi jawapan yang membina. Itu tak syok lah kawan walaubagaimana saya sentiasa bersifat positif. 

Mengikut pendapat kawan fb saya mengatakan Patrol Station tidak akan mengenakan charge 50sen jika ada Touch n Go Spot iaitu kaunter khas. Mungkin saya terlepas pandang di mana ada Stiker atau Signage yang mention Touch N Go Spot di beberapa Station Minyak tetapi mengikut pengalaman saya top up Touch n Go di Station Minyak Petronas Seksyen 6 Shah Alam ada memberitahu saya ada dikenakan charge 50 sen. Selalunya saya buat disitu dan saya beranggapan semua stesen minyak petronas pun sama.

Nak jadikan cerita saya top up TnG di Stesen Minyak Shell Tapah. Bila semak riset wow takde kena service charge menarik ni. Semasa pulang top up lagi di Stesen Minyak Petronas nak check kena charge atau tidak rupanya kena charge jugak. So ketika itu saya beranggapan semua Stesen Petronas kenakan service charge. Then apabila sampai tol highway guthrie saya nak top up nak lihat kena service charge atau tidak dan utk makluman tiada lambang TnG Spot lansung pada Tol Pandu Top Up TnG. Bila bayar dan dapat riset eh takde juga dikena 50 sen . Feeling confuse jap hehe

Berdasarkan komen dari rakan-rakan di dalam FB mengatakan ada stesen minyak mengenakan charge dan ada yang tidak kerana bergantung kepada  kaunter TnG Spot. Biasanya satu kaunter jer untuk top up , bayar duit minyak , membeli barang makan dan juga prepaid.Jika mempunyai kaunter yang berlainan ini bermakna mereka memerlukan staf yang beroperasi di 2 tempat . Ini secara tidak lansung menambahkan kos operasi syarikat.

Soalnya mengapa tidak diselaraskan kepada semua stesen minyak andai kata menggunakan device yang sama?

Assalamualaikum kepada semua yang selalu follow gua punya blog ini yang kadang-kadang tak beberapa best hahahah. Rasa macam dah bersarang blog ini maklumlah sibuk dengan beberapa perkara yang tidak dapat dielakkan. Walaubagaimanapun untuk tahun ini  gua akan cuba selalu update blog ini sekurang-kurangya seminggu sekali dwi bahasa kerana bermula tahun ini gua agak kelapangan sedikit dan mempunya masa untuk berfikir dunia blog dan social media.

Cukup cerita tentang gua, so untuk post pertama for this year gua nak share tentang Program Pelayaran KLD Tunas Samudera kenapa gua nak share sebab baru-baru ini tawaran program telah dibuka pada tahun 2015 . So gua nak share serba ringkas sedikit berdasarkan pengalaman gua yang telah menyertai program ini pada tahun 2012 pelayaran ke 280.

Kapal Layar Diraja (KLD) Tunas Samudera adalah satu program anjuran bersama antara Kementerian Belia dan Sukan (KBS) dengan kerjasama TLDM . Untuk pengetahuan anda progran ini adalah diasaskan oleh bekas perdana menteri kita Tun Dr Mahathir yang  mahukan belia-belia ketika itu didedahkan ilmu-ilmu pelayaran. Program ini adalah dibawah kelolaan Bahagian Pembangunan Belia dan Kapal layar ini berfungsi sebagai kapal layar latihan.

Tujuan utama program ini ialah untuk memberi peluang kepada belia-belia untuk mengenali kehidupan Maritim. Disamping itu juga, peserta akan diajar cara pelayaran, ketahanan mental dan fizikal, membina jati diri, disiplin,membina semangat setiakawan dan kerjasama. Program ini telah dirancang untuk memberi peluang pengembaraan yang menarik semasa berada diatas kapal. Program ini akan memakan masa selamam 14 hari di mana 10 hari atas kapal dan 4 hari orentasi.

Antara aktiviti semasa di atas kapal :
  • Ice-breaking antara peserta dan krew kapal
  • Penerangan mengenai kapal
  • Pengenalan kepada jenis-jenis layar
  • General dril
  • General kuiz
  • Ikatan tali
  • Kecergasan diri (memanjat tiang layar setinggi 30m)
  • Permainan indoor dan outdoor
  • Malam kebudayaan ( melalak sempai pagi)
  • Pertandingan logo dan motto
  • Look - out
  • Pengendalian kapal layar
  • Latihan menembak
  • Mempelajari bahasa dilaut
  • Mempelajari tiupan wisel 
  • Bertugas di "Galley" aka dapur
  • Tugasan di 'Sunset'
  • Tugasan pagi
  • Happy hours (memang happy dan santai jer time ini hahhaa)
  • Latihan Kecemasan.
Seribu satu pengalaman tidak dapat gua lupakan dalam program ini sama ada duka atau pun gembira. Antaranya gua rasa sebak semasa orentasi kerana gua rasa ahli kumpulan tidak menghormati dan memberi kerjasama yang dengan gua dan ahli yang lain menyebabkan rakit kumpulan gua hanyut. Secara tidak lansung seluruh program orentasi terganggu. 

Semasa program di atas kapal gua dilantik sebagai Penghulu ini semua atas rancangan ketua kumpulan kecil yang gua tidak tahu dan paling penting sekali gua dapat menyelesaikan kes barang hilang , jika tidak selesai pada hari itu juga memang semua peserta tidak boleh masuk pulau langkawi. Gua sangat berpuas hati dan lega apabila kes itu selesai dalam masa 24 jam dan diplomasi gua dengan Trainner Officer (TO)  dan XO untuk menyelesaikan kes itu memberi keyakinan kepada mereka. Paling menajubkan apabila  pertandingan memanjat tiang di mana semasa proses pas baton gua kena menunggu peserta lain pas baton dan gua kena tunggu di "Top Gallant". Sambil tunggu tu gua layan 100plus sambil layan view laut di tengah samudera. Sungguh mengasyikkan !

3 perkara yang gua belajar dalam program ini adalah :

Adaptasi : Menyesuaikan diri dalam apa jua keadaan dan suasana kerana keadaan di laut boleh beruabah-ubah dari segi cuaca dan angin.

'Be Prepared' : Apabila cuaca tidak menentu kita hendaklah sentiasa bersedia melakukan sesuatu  berdasarkan arahan dan perkara yang perlu dilakukan mengikut SOP.

Patuh : Menurut perintah pada satu 'command'. Apabila berada di atas kapal nanti anda akan mendengar pelbagai arahan , maka anda kena selidik dan pastikan arahan yang betul dan benar. Petua yang diberi adalah patuh pada arahan yang pertama sekali.

Program ini adalah untuk golongan belia yang aktif dalam persatuan belia, berumur 18 - 30 tahun dan hendaklah mendapat pengesahan dari persatuan yang diwakili. Selain itu perlu mendapat kelulusan dari majikan bagi belia yang bekerja.

Untuk memohon bagi tahun 2015 boleh layari di website ini Program KLD Tunas Samudera (Skim Belia) 2015

Tarikh akhir permohonan adalah pada 20 Februari 2015. Apa lagi cepat lah mohon.

All the best kepada yang berjaya terpilih!

5 Reasons to Quit a Job You Love

I felt like I was on the top of my game: I had a great boss, loved my team, was getting high profile projects, and visibility with senior leadership. So I did what any sensible person would do: I quit. That's what you would do right? After I put in my notice I started doubting myself and asking if I was crazy. Who leaves a job they love? Especially in a society of people who don't like their jobs? I do. And perhaps you should to. So when do you leave a job you love? Here are a few thoughts:
When the job no longer fits the vision you have for your career. Everything you do is either moving you closer or further away from your vision. While a position may have started out with the right alignment, you may have gained what you needed from that position. Understand the end game and think about what will take you there. Look at your target position and understand what makes a person successful in that position. It won't be a one-size-fits-all but most likely you will see some key traits and skills you should be proficient at. Maybe you need to lead a bigger team, or do a rotation in finance. Keep in mind, the road to your goal may not be a straight shot. Detours can be valuable for your career as well. Focus on making them strategic detours.
When you identify a gap in your toolkit that can't be filled where you are. As briefly mentioned above, if you identify a key trait you need to build, understand what options are out there for you. I have heard many people in the C-Suite mention doing time in sales or finance has helped make them successful in their positions. Understand the experiences that will help you round out your leadership and decision making and focus on finding a position that will support that.
When you are no longer growing or your job is so easy you are becoming complacent.If you aren't growing the probability of becoming complacent is high. While it's nice having an easy job for awhile, it's important to be developing and doing things that stretch you as a leader. You may be able to achieve this in your current position by asking for new responsibilities - perhaps even taking some of your boss' workload. However, if growth opportunities aren't sufficient enough you may need to consider a different job. Whatever you do, don't let complacency creep in because eventually someone will come in and outperform you and it will be a struggle to catch back up.
When you and the company no longer have value alignment. Companies change. This can especially be true when a new leader comes on board. Your job may still be great, but you may not have value alignment. This ultimately means you won't be as passionate about initiatives the company tackles. Some values speak to us and some don't. Cigna Health Care came out with a brand of "go you". The premise was "why aren't you living your dream today? Just go for it." That really spoke to me. Recently, I noticed their branding changed to "together we win." That does nothing for me, but obviously does for others. Does your company inspire you? Do you get excited about the work they are doing?
When you've outgrown your company. You may be a big fish in a small pond. Isn't that a wonderful feeling? You're the expert! People are dependent on you and you are highly regarded. BUT, you are no longer surrounded by people or challenges that are going to propel you forward as a leader. Or, you may have a vision that is bigger than what the company can support. If you have great ideas but the company doesn't have the infrastructure or willingness to implement, it's probably time to take your ideas to a company that aligns more with your vision.
If you read this list and feel like it's you, don't go in tomorrow and quit your job. Leaving a job should be strategic. Now you see the gap, it's time to define where you are going and understand which move will get you there. You want to avoid leaving a job on a whim and being a victim of impulsiveness. Justify your decision to leave, map out your plan and don't leave until you have found a good fit. While I still look back on my departure with a bit of bittersweet feelings, I can tell you leaving has challenged my thinking, expanded my skill-set and opened new doors of opportunity.
Have you ever outgrown a job or quit a job you loved? Share your story in the comments!

Apa salah mereka and why so serious ?

Orang kata muka dan kulit aku mcm orang Philippines , ada kata mcm Indonesia , ada kata mcm Singapura , ada kata macam Thailanda, ada kata macam Cambodia senang citer mcm orang ASIA . Tetapi Masih tiada lagi orang cakap muka dan kulit aku mcm orang Hawaii hahaha.Sebagai observer dan kadang2 ada memberi pandangan dlm group backpackers dan travel kadang2 aku rasa ada sebilangan kecil manusia suka mempertikaikan tindakan orang lain seolah-olah mereka ini rasa HEBAT sangat kerana dah banyak tempat mereka pergi atau tempat yg mereka pergi itu mereka rasa mereka paling OTAI. Walhal ada orang yang lagi hebat dari kita. Sepatutnya sebagai seorang TRAVELLER atau Backpackers menjadikan kita lebih matang dan berfikiran terbuka dalam menerima pendapat dan menilai seseorang itu.
1. Mengapa kita perlu pertikaikan orang yang travel pakai beg TARIK, janji dia travel dan adakala travel lebih jauh dari kita. Ada member Philippines aku travel 10 hari travel ke Myanmar , Thailand dan Malaysia dgn beg tarik, Akhirnya dia belajar sesuatu yang dia perlu menggunakan HAVERSACK jika travel untuk tempoh yg lama.
2.Apa salahnya mereka hendak duduk hotel berbanding budget hotel / hostel. Kalau dia nak privacy dan mampu apasalahnya duduk hotel. Tetapi jika dia hendak mingle around dgn traveller or backpacker duduk lah hostel / budget hotel / guesthouse. Member Philippines aku 1st time duduk hostel for backpackers share stories yang dia seronok duduk di situ kerana dapat mingle around and share stories trip masing2 dgn traveller dari luar dan tempatnya bersih. So dia dapat belajar sesuatu di situ bahawa hostel / budget hotel / guesthouse bahawa sebenarnya bersih dan selesa.
3. Orang kita terasa hati apabila kita tidak tegur mereka di obersea. Hati kaca sungguh lah mcm ni. Sepatutnya kita perlu rasa murah hati untuk membantu mereka apabila kita nampak mereka dalam kekalutan atau kegelisahan.Depa bukan tahu ko ni orang Malaysia sebab muka pun dah mcm Bangladesh, Mexico dll dan depa bukan tau yang hang ni kerja kat sini tah2 sama mcm mereka nak travel jugak. Sebab tu mereka prefer orang local. Aku pun jarang tegur orang Malaysia tetapi aku akan senyum jer lagi2 kalau awek aku tegurlah jika berselisih hehehe.
4. Apa itu traveller? Senang citer bermaksud mengembara dari satu tempat ke satu tempat. Ini kita senang2 jer mempertikaikan trip org tanpa alasan kukuh. Sebagai seorang traveller, pasti ada sesuatu perkara yang luar biasa ingin dilakukan tetapi masih lagi diterima akal dan logik.Tidak semua traveller akan ikut 'itinerary' kita sebab selalunya 'traveller' ada misi yang ingin dipenuhi contoh nak lepak kat masjid di setiap negara dalam masa singkat. Oleh itu sentiasalah bagi sokongan dan cadangan bernas terhadap idea mereka ini.
Nak citer lebih pun gwa rasa malu sebab wa ni biasa-biasa jer. Sebab tu wa citer kat wa punya  travel blog di

Malam Yang Indah di Jakarta

Sebenarnya kedatangan gua ke di Jakarta ini adalah untuk melihat perusahaan kain-kain dan pakaian di Tanah Abang. Sahaja tengok-tengok sambil buat kajian ringkas berdasarkan harga dan logistik.  Melalui pemerhatian aku memang murah harganya kerana di situ menjadi pusat jualan secara pukal di mana segala perusahaan di seluruh Indonesia akan dijual disitu. Gua tidak amik gambar kerana sibuk melihat apa yg berlaku di sekeliling dan juga sebagai keselamatan gua supaya tidak kelihatan sebagai pelancong.

Malam itu aku jalan-jalan di sekitar bandar Jakarta di Monas dan juga makan nasi kambing. Rasa kambing di sana berbeza di Malaysia entah aku rasa lain pada hal daging kambing juga mungkin cara masakan yang berbeza. Tetapi semasa aku baru sampai di Jakarta aku dipelawa makan di restoran Indonesia di pusat membeli belah Grand Indonesia memang sedap. Mungkin  jika di dalam mall kualiti dia terjaga tetapi pasti harganya berbeza berbanding harga makan di tepi jalan.

Jangan terkejut jika anda makan di tepi jalan ada pangamen aka pemuzik jalanan menghampiri tempat makan anda . Jumpa lagi di Jakarta.

16 Rich Habits

Nak share dengan kawan-kawan the article about 16 rich habits. Pokok pangkalnya everything start with positive mind.

Intelligence, talent and charm are great, but more often than not these aren’t what separate the wealthiest among us from the poorest.

Instead, the differences are in our daily habits. Do you realize that these subconscious, second-nature activities make up 40 percent of our waking hours? That means that two out of every five minutes, all day and every day, we operate on autopilot. It’s true: Habits are neural pathways stored in the basal ganglia, a golf ball-size mass of tissue right in the center of our brains, in the limbic system.

This neural fast lane is meant to save the brain energy: When a habit is formed and stored in this region, the parts of the brain involved in deeper decision-making cease to fully participate in the activity. However, we all know there are good habits and bad habits.

I spent years studying the difference between the habits of our country’s rich and poor, questioning hundreds of individuals. On the rich side, these were people with annual gross income north of $160,000 and net liquid assets of $3.2 million or more. I defined the lesser-off as those with gross income of $35,000 or less and no more than $5,000 in liquid assets. When I was done, I analyzed the results of my research and boiled down the responses to create a picture of what allows the wealthy to prosper where others do not. My ensuing book became a sort of instruction manual for how to become wealthy.

The gulf between Rich Habits and Poverty Habits is staggering. If you’re well off already, chances are you already adhere to most of these Rich Habits. Integrating the ones you’ve neglected will push you further. But be assured: If you’re doing fine now without minding these principles, it’ll catch up to you.

Some of the differences between rich and poor are obvious, while others are a little more surprising. Here are the most important Rich Habits you can take up to reach and maintain your wealth potential.

1. Live within your means.

Wealthy people avoid overspending by paying their future selves first. They save 20 percent of their net income and live on the remaining 80 percent.

Among those who are struggling financially, almost all are living above their means. They spend more than they earn, and their debt is overwhelming them. If you want to end your financial struggles, you need to make a habit of saving and budgeting what you spend. Here are some sensible ways to budget your monthly net pay:

▲Spend no more than 25 percent on housing, no matter if you own or rent.
▲Spend no more than 15 percent on food.
▲Limit entertainment—bars, movies, miniature golf, whatever—to no more than 10 percent of your spending. Vacations should account for no more than 5 percent of your annual net pay.
▲Spend no more than 5 percent on auto loans, and never lease. Ninety-four percent of the wealthy buy instead of leasing. These folks keep their cars until the wheels fall off, taking great care along the way so that they save money in the long run.
▲Stay away from accumulating credit card debt. If you are doing this, it’s a clear sign that you need to cut back somewhere.
▲ Think of savings and investments as two completely different things. You should never lose money on your savings. Try to stash six months of living expenses in an emergency fund in case you lose your job or your business goes belly-up.
▲ Contribute as much as you can afford to a retirement plan. If you work for a company that matches your contributions up to a certain percentage, great. Always take that free money when you can get it.

2. Don’t gamble.

Talk about a sucker bet: Every week, 77 percent of those who struggle financially play the lottery. Hardly anyone who is wealthy plays the numbers. Wealthy people do not rely on random good luck for their wealth. They create their own good luck. If you still want to bet after knowing the risk, use money from your entertainment budget.

3. Read every day.

Reading information that will increase your knowledge about your business or career will make you more valuable to colleagues, customers or clients. Among wealthy people, 88 percent read 30 minutes or more every day. Just as important, they make good use of their reading time:

▲ 63 percent listen to audiobooks during their commute.
▲ 79 percent read educational career-related material.
▲ 55 percent read for personal development.
▲ 58 percent read biographies of successful people.
▲ 94 percent read current events.
▲ 51 percent read about history.
▲ 11 percent—only 11 percent—read purely for entertainment purposes.

The reason successful people read is to improve themselves. This separates them from the competition. By increasing their knowledge, they are able to see more opportunities, which translate into more money. Comparatively speaking, only one in 50 of those struggling financially engages in this daily self-improvement reading, and as a result the poor don’t grow professionally and are among the first to be fired or downsized.

4. Forget the boob tube and spend less time surfing the Internet.

How much of your valuable time do you lose parked in front of a screen? Two-thirds of wealthy people watch less than an hour of TV a day and almost that many—63 percent—spend less than an hour a day on the Internet unless it is job-related.

Instead, these successful people use their free time engaged in personal development, networking, volunteering, working side jobs or side businesses, or pursuing some goal that will lead to rewards down the road. But 77 percent of those struggling financially spend an hour or more a day watching TV, and 74 percent spend an hour or more a day using the Internet recreationally.

5. Control your emotions.
Not every thought needs to come out of your mouth. Not every emotion needs to be expressed. When you say whatever is on your mind, you risk hurting others. Loose lips are a habit for 69 percent of those who struggle financially. Conversely, 94 percent of wealthy people filter their emotions. They understand that letting emotions control them can destroy relationships at work and at home. Wait to say what’s on your mind until you’re calm and have had time to look at the situation objectively.

Fear is perhaps the most important negative emotion to control. Any change, even positive changes such as marriage or a promotion, can prompt feelings of fear. Wealthy people have conditioned their minds to overcome these thoughts, while those who struggle financially give in to fear and allow it to hold them back.

Whether you fear change, making mistakes, taking risks or simply failure, conquering these emotions is about leaning in just a little until you build up confidence. It’s amazing how much confidence helps.

6. Network and volunteer regularly.

You’ll build valuable relationships that can result in more customers or clients, or help you land a better job if you spend time pressing the flesh and giving back in your community. Almost three-quarters of wealthy people network and volunteer a minimum of five hours a month. Among those struggling financially, only one in 10 does this.

One perk of volunteering is the company you’ll keep. Very often the boards and committees of nonprofits are made up of wealthy, successful people. Developing personal relationships with these folks will often result in future business relationships.

7. Go above and beyond in work and business.

Unsuccessful people have “it’s not in my job description” syndrome. Consequently, they are never given more responsibility, and their wages grow very little from year to year—if they keep their jobs at all. Wealthy individuals, on the other hand, make themselves invaluable to their employers or customers, writing articles related to their industry, speaking at industry events and networking. Successful people work hard to achieve the mutual goals of their employers or their businesses.

8. Set goals, not wishes.
You cannot control the outcome of a wish, but you can control the outcome of a goal.

Every year, 70 percent of the wealthy pursue at least one major goal. Only 3 percent of those struggling to make ends meet do this.

9. Avoid procrastination.

Successful people understand that procrastination impairs quality; creates dissatisfied employers, customers or clients; and damages other nonbusiness relationships. Here are five strategies that will help you avoid procrastination:

▲ Create daily “to-do” lists. These are your daily goals. You want to complete 70 percent or more of your “to-do” items every day.
▲ Have a “daily five.” These activities represent the crucial things that will help you get closer to realizing some major purpose or goal.
▲ Set and communicate artificial deadlines. There’s nothing wrong with finishing early.
▲ Have accountability partners. These are people you team with to pursue a big goal. Communicate with them at least every week, and make sure they hold your feet to the fire.
▲ Say a “do it now” affirmation. This is a self-nagging technique. Repeat the words “do it now” over and over again until you begin a task or project.

10. Talk less and listen more.

A 5-to-1 ratio is about right: You should listen to others five minutes for every one minute that you speak. Wealthy people are good communicators because they are good listeners. They understand that you can learn and educate yourself only by listening to what other people have to say. The more you learn about your relationships, the more you can help them.

11. Avoid toxic people.
We are only as successful as the people we spend the most time with. Of wealthy, successful people, 86 percent associate with other successful people. But 96 percent of those struggling financially stick with others struggling financially.

If you want to end your financial struggles, you need to evaluate each of your relationships and determine if they are a Rich Relationship (with someone who can help you up) or a Poverty Relationship (with someone holding you back). Start spending more and more time on your Rich Relationships and less on your Poverty Relationships. Rich Relationships can help you find a better job, refer new business to you or open doors of opportunity.

12. Don’t give up.
Those who are successful in life have three things in common: focus, persistence and patience. They simply do not quit chasing their big goals. Those who struggle financially stop short.

13. Set aside the self-limiting beliefs holding you back.

If you’re hurting financially, you’ve probably told yourself some of these untruths before: Poor people can’t become rich. Rich people have good luck and poor people have bad luck. I’m not smart. I can’t do anything right. I fail at everything I try.

Each one of these self-limiting beliefs alters your behavior in a negative way. Almost four out of five wealthy people attribute their success in life to their beliefs. Change your negative beliefs into positive affirmations by reading lessons from the greats of personal development, like Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie and Jim Rohn.

14. Get a mentor.

Among the wealthy, 93 percent who had a mentor attributed their success to that person. Mentors regularly and actively participate in your growth by teaching you what to do and what not to do. Finding such a teacher is one of the best and least painful ways to become rich.

If you know your goals, find someone who has already achieved them. You’ll be amazed by how many people want to lend a helping hand.

15. Eliminate “bad luck” from your vocabulary.

Those struggling financially in life have a way of creating bad luck for themselves. It’s a byproduct of their habits. Poverty Habits, repeated over and over are like snowflakes on a mountainside. In time, these snowflakes build up until the inevitable avalanche—a preventable medical problem, a lost job, a failed marriage, a broken business relationship or a bankruptcy.

Conversely, successful people create their own unique type of good luck. Their positive habits lead to opportunities such as promotions, bonuses, new business and good health.

16. Know your main purpose.

It’s the last Rich Habit, but it might be the most important. Those people who pursue a dream or a main purpose in life are by far the wealthiest and happiest among us. Because they love what they do for a living, they are happy to devote more hours each day driving toward their purpose.

Odds are, if you are not making sufficient income at your job, it is because you are doing something you do not particularly like. When you can earn a sufficient income doing something you enjoy, you have found your main purpose.

Believe it or not, finding this purpose is easy. Here’s the process:

1. Make a list of everything you can remember that made you happy.
2. Highlight those items on your list that involve a skill, and identify that skill.
3. Rank the top 10 highlighted items in the order of joy they bring to you. Whatever makes you happiest of all gets 10 big points.
4. Now rank the top 10 highlighted items in terms of their income potential. The most lucrative skill of all is worth 10 points.
5. Total the two ranked columns. The highest score represents a potential main purpose in your life. Presto!

As you can see, the differences between rich and poor are simple—sometimes intuitive—but not insignificant. Aim to take up all 16 of these habits, and you’re almost guaranteed to become better off.

You can change your life and reach your goals, all by making small tweaks to your daily routine
