making decision always a big step for individual to move forward

Make A Tough Decision

Too often, in life, we are dealing with many situations that enforced us in making decision to move forward. The simplest example comes as easy as eating using hands or with spoon and fork. The biggest one is variants in many angles and degree of hardships and difficulties.

Based on our experience with previous clients at AsiaCamp, we noted that our society facing hardship in making decision. There were students confused in choosing the mainstream (science or iktisas) for his or her next path. There also corporate members who failed to deliver the best solutions for their company. In the meantime, we were facing with youngsters who worry about life selection and skill enhancement. Nonetheless, a group of educators pretty much insecure with their teaching styles and goal direction for their future career.

We believe that making decision and solutions as not that easy but yet it’s not that hard. When you know what to do and how to do it, the hard choices seem almost clear-cut.

The most important of course the balance connection of mind and body. We in AsiaCamp believe that in this world everything can be done and can be solved by using the same formula – peace mind and healthy body empower critical thinking and creative ideas.

Have you heard the story of Forrest Gump in the movie? It’s a blockbuster movie for people in 1990s. Forrest Gump confused and lost on what to do in life. He went running for days and weeks until he consciously found a way to undo his mistakes and inspire new ideas. Again, the formula is getting back to the connection of mind and body to direct the focus and critical thinking.

Do you still confuse? This is the steps of a basic decision-making model:

  1. Define the situation and be clear of your goals and desire
  2. Generate a list of alternatives
  3. Gather information
  4. Make a selection
  5. Take action

We wish you the best and join us for mind-blowing strategies and inspiration.

Choose Positivity

Dealing with everyday routines and life tribulations is not an easy task. Life is hard as the real struggle is to make the commitment to oneself and its surrounding environment. People keep reminding, ‘just forget all and be happy’. Some might advice, ‘let’s grateful and reflect!’ These are all positive thoughts that encourage us to have patience in life.

Yes, I choose positivity. I choose to focus on what is great in my life. I choose to boost oneself, my team and my family. Indeed, the mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.

However, in the reality how many of us are actually have positive thoughts?

When you face real hardship, how many of us have surrendered and given up?

During the dark age of the national economic crisis, how many souls have fallen and gone astray?

While the sweetest thing in our life; our family unit rumbles and destroys, how many of us are still be grateful and keep smiling?

Yes, life is not easy.

But God has promised one thing for sure, “change yourself first before you change others”. The phrase also focuses on the importance of steadfast and be patience. Of course, the keyword here referred to the choice of positivity in life.

This is what we do at AsiaCamp. There are community members who are well known to the cure of life; the positivity. But, some others are alienated to this kind of treatment and support system.

Rights, Respect and Responsibility: Key to a Successful Programme

We always aim for a successful programme that achieved specific goal and objectives. However, the ingredients of beautiful success are made from variant factors and parameters. In the land of motivational training, the indicators that measured the degree of success in programme and events are defined by attitudes and efficiency.

 

As for me, the key to a successful programme is related to three component of i) rights, ii) respect, and iii) responsibility. These three components reflect the tenets of social learning from one individual to others.

 

I was once a camp commander to a group of 300 students who were SPM leavers at that time. They were required to stay at the camp that took about 2 months duration and involved almost 20 modules. It is indeed a hectic and packed camp. Of course, you can imagine the anxieties of both facilitators and students at that camp.

 

However, thorough excellent approaches and teamwork from facilitators, we managed to build a beautiful relationship with the students and raised trust and support from the parents.

 

Therefore, I truly believed that a successful programme is followed by all parties that know their rights, perform their best of responsibility and respect for each other. Without respect for each other, the facilitators cannot move the crowd to be cooperative. Without responsibility, the entire programme will be in chaos. Lastly, without knowing their rights, one party will have the tendency to be bullied by the other parties. It is fair and square.

 

Do you seek for excellency in your future programme and training? This is the checklist you need to bear in mind;

  1. Understand your purpose and objectives
  2. Understand the value of your presence
  3. Build trust and respect
  4. Speak up and be interactive
  5. Build relationships & friendship
  6. Try to be transparent
  7. Know ways to add value
  8. Have confidence in your crowd

takut akan ketinggina juga meruapakan salah satu ketakutan dalam hidup

Mengatasi Ketakutan Dalam Hidup

Takut merupakan musuh senyap kepada diri. Rasa takut adalah suatu perasaan yang diciptakan Tuhan untuk melindungi manusia kerana adanya ancaman, musibah atau bencana dari luar yang akan menyebabkan mudarat kepada diri. Ketakutan dalam hidup yang utama itu haruslah dikembalikan kepada Tuhan kerana Dialah yang merupakan Sang Pencipta dan Pemilik kepada seluruh kehidupan manusia.

 

Namun demikian, dengan alpanya manusia, kini ketakutan itu telah berubah bentuk dan menghinggap jauh sehingga menjadi barah di dalam seluruh kehidupan manusia. Akhirnya, ketakutan ini menjadi tentangan terbesar kita yang merayap dari faktor-faktor yang tidak diketahui dan secara membabi-buta.

 

Ketakutan dalam hidup ini mampu hadir dalam pelbagai bentuk dan wajah, yang kebanyakannya melibatkan prestasi dan reputasi diri. Seringkali ketakutan ini terdengarnya logik, namun kadangkala ia berubah menjadi tidak logik jika ditakuti secara berlebihan.

 

Apakah ketakutan dalam hidup yang digeruni oleh kita?

  • Apakah saya akan gagal dalam hidup? …kerana musnahnya keputusan yang bagus? Hilangnya pekerjaan? Punahnya bisnes diri?
  • Bagaimana mungkin hidup di masa depan dengan tabungan yang sedikit? Tiada tabungan? Hutang-piutang yang berlonggok di keliling pinggang?
  • Mungkinkah juga takut akan sakit yang ada di dalam diri? Sakit kanser yang menghadir? Mungkin menjadi lumpuh, pekak atau buta.
  • Sesetengah yang lain takut tiadanya kebahagiaan diri. Diri yang tidak berkahwin, tiada anak, tiada yang menyayangi akan dilupakan orang. Tiada yang akan menemani hidup.
  • Ada yang lebih menjurus kepada prestasi diri seperti takut berucap di khalayak ramai, takut memimpin, takut dimalukan dan diperli oleh yang lain.
takut akan ketinggina juga meruapakan salah satu ketakutan dalam hidup

Takut akan ketinggian juga merupakan salah satu ketakutan dalam hidup

 

Hakikatnya, ketakutan ini merupakan satu anugerah dari Tuhan. Ia perlu diacu dan disalurkan kepada laluan yang menjadi sumber kekuatan, inspirasi dan motivasi diri untuk terus bangun dan maju di dalam hidup. Oleh itu, ketakutan ini merupakan satu faktor yang perlu dihadapi dan dikuasai. Hanya dengan menguasai ketakutan yang ada di dalam diri, kita akan mampu menjadi lebih kuat, lebih bertenang, dan bersabar menghadapi kehidupan.
