To work under pressure or to work with joy.

I believe there are two ways one can do well in life. Either you live under pressure or to have the love on whatever you intend to excel, you should be able to succeed on them.

I remember when I was raising my young family, when all my sons were under my care, I was working under pressure in my career. The children were studying abroad and I needed to make sure they had the fund to continue their studies without any interruption. The mortgage loans had to be paid regularly. The few cars at home for the family were paid by me alone. Yes! In order for me to settle the heavy financial burden at that time, I had to work very hard. Though I got what I wanted then, I was working under pressure to succeed.

Today all my sons have grown to be independent and most of my obligations have been settled, my mind has definitely grew lighter and easier now. I still could continue my fantastic career because I no longer have to work under pressure, rather I am doing well on it because I apply love and passion on what I'm doing currently.  Like I always said... Talking is my hobby and selling life insurance allows me to talk endlessly.

For those who work without these two energies, under pressure force or love over your work, I doubt they would perform well in the long run. I had seen many young graduates whose fathers are rich and powerful, their children seldom are willing to work hard. They expect good position and high return without putting the effort. Or those who have no dreams and ambition, seldom could work pass their age of 50. Unless they love what they are doing, working would never be fun and interesting  but rather it becomes a routine chore in their life. Believe or not, I think personally these are true facts of life.

Food for thought

     “May you - Work like you don't need the money, love like you've never been hurt, dance like no-one is watching, screw like it's being filmed, and drink like a true Irishman” - Anonymous Toast quote.

"When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure" - Peter Marshall quote.
