Random Preaching

Here are a couple of things I just thought to share, since I’m secretly developing an interest in preaching people. They represent some of my principles in life and give you the slightest idea on how I deal with things most of the time.

  1. You can’t live up to everyone’s expectation, but you can live up to the majority’s.
  2. It is inevitable to think too much, but sometimes doing too much as a result of thinking too much brings trouble not only to yourself but to others.
  3. Love life can be sacrificed for a few years, you can’t die without a partner in a short term.
  4. Seeing others succeed in a particular way does not mean you need to succeed the same way because individuals are different and unique.
  5. If you believe in something, don’t just talk but walk the talk.
  6. You can’t just be a talker; you need to be a listener — people are not necessarily interested in your talks.
  7. You don’t need to indirectly or directly show what you have/know. People will respect you more if they find that out on their own.
  8. Shut up and don’t criticise others if you can’t accept criticisms in regards of you.

Sometimes I want to slap people of my age who have mentality like a kid. I am not your nanny and have not seen a quarter of the things your nanny has seen but I’m giving you lecture because I practice and am good at what I just preached!

Cheers.

  1. I admire your list of principles Ken. It shows how open-minded and intellectual you are. I agree with your last point, the golden rule on criticisms: don’t criticize if you don’t want to be criticized.
