Maturity

Age is often associated with maturity, but my experience showed that that is not true at all. If you ask for a definition of maturity from ten people, you will get ten answers, most with some truth in it. I think its better to equate maturity with they way one thinks, the way one prioritises, the way one handles adversity and success. Below was a pretty good summary which I read from Quora:


Maturity is when you stop trying to change people, and instead focus on changing yourself. 

Maturity is when you accept people for who they are. 

Maturity is when you understand that everyone is right in their own perspective. 

Maturity is when you learn to "let go". 

Maturity is when you are able to drop "expectations" from a relationship and give for the sake of giving. 

Maturity is when you understand that whatever you do, you do for your own peace. 

Maturity is when you stop proving to the world how intelligent you are. 

Maturity is when you focus on positives in people.

Maturity is when you do not seek approval from others. 

Maturity is when you stop comparing yourself with others. 

Maturity is when you are at peace with yourself. 

Maturity is when you can differentiate between "need" and "want, and you can you can let go of your wants. 


Maturity is when you stop attaching "happiness" to material things.

My Master, A National Treasure

REPOST:  Its been more than two years since I posted on my sifu. This is probably the most significant posting I had done thus far that does not involve business or politics. My circle of close friends and business colleagues have benefited significantly from his treatment.


My Master, Dr. Law Chin Han (from my iPhone)

Where shall I start? OK, just based on real life experiences of those who are close to me. The entire Tong family (Bukit Kiara Properties) absolutely swear that he is the master of masters when it comes to acupuncture (and dentistry as well). To me, you can probably find many great dentists, but to find a real Master in acupuncture, thats a whole different ballgame.


I am not big aficionado of Chinese medicine or acupuncture initially. I guess you have to go through the whole shebang to appreciate the real life changing effects from a master.


My business partner and very close friend went to him after 15 years of persistent gout problem, he will get his heavy attacks at least…
