I once read that after a game, @cristiano went to the gym and got another workout, just because. I liked the story so I followed suit.

Busy people have 24 hours a day too. Screw your excuses. More work, less talk.

LEVEL UP - Gym before soccer to prime muscles. Played soccer and did my best Guti/Zidane/Pirlo assist impression. Then go back to gym to warm down. I think in these moments to Brady and Ronaldo, their precision with their lifestyle and relentless work ethic. That's why they are in their 30s yet still on top of their game.

Comment below if you serious about being your best!

Workout was horrifying. Not been pushing it for a while and this was tough. But hey we all start somewhere. Back at it again.

EMBARRASSING STORY OF ME ALMOST GETTING FIRED FROM A KIDS CAMP ...
.
It's a little embarrassing but the first time I worked with kids back in June 2008, I was so bad as a team leader the lady-in-charge Anne wanted to "release" me on Day 3. I had just left the army and was doing everything wrong. Literally everything.
.
Let that sink in for a moment: I was about to get fired from a motivational kids program. How crazy!
.
I kept going at it though and I suspected they only kept asking me back because they were short on staff.

So I went back in 2009, 2010, 2011 ... year after year.
.
Eventually I got better. Less sucky, actually somewhat proficient.

I became a facilitator.

Then one day, a colleague came up to me and said - "Melvin, look at you on stage. You are a natural. I can't do what you do."
.
I almost choked on my food.
.
Today, I teach and share because I want folks to know that I was anything but a natural when I first started.

But if you don't give up, and keep going at it ... then eventually you will (like all things) get really really good.

Love,
Melvin

P.S. Thanks Leila for being there for me ... Pst Yi Lun for organising this for me ... Jasmine for helping with logistics and Michael for the pics :)

You are staring at two 2kg dumbbells. If you know what you are doing, you can get a exhausting workout with these 2 babies. No kidding. Knowledge, not weight. #bigbrainandbigmuscles

6 BUCK CASIO WATCH FROM ARMY EMART - I wear this watch to remind myself that I got to where I am today by hard work. No silver spoon, started with no uni degree, no experience and working from the ground up. And the way forward is with more hard work. Having money is great, but having humility, remembering where you came from and staying focused on what truly matters is, to me, more important. I will stick with my 6 buck emart casio watch, thank you.

THE WHOLE 30 - Bill Allen lost 30+ kg eating only whole foods. I can learn a few things from the big man.

PRACTICE WHAT I PREACH - I shared last year at a private Life By Design event that the greatest breakthrough in your life comes by doing that which is not as familiar to you. Doing more of what you are good at is well... not gonna be much of a breakthrough. Working out is what I do daily. But now, I am embarking on a deep, very deliberate revamp of my diet. So this is me taking my own advice and doing what is not YET as comfortable to me.

4 UNUSUALLY WISE THINGS I LEARNT FROM GARY Vee @garyvee

What I picked up from Gary was ironically NOT his 1-hr long keynote. But in small comments he made in our Diamond Lounge Q n' A.
.
1. "I pump my money back into my company to grow it to a BILLION."
.
Most entrepreneurs see the business as a cash machine used to fund their lifestyle of buying shit. Gary does the opposite. He loves the life so much he takes his money and puts it BACK into the business.
.
2. "Stop being selfish"

Are you likes obsessed? Or are you truly replying people and making a connection with the people who comment ... and designing content that truly serves them?

3. "The process is the goal"

Gary mentions he's in love with the game. Many are in love only with the outcome. What do you focus on.

4. "Is it a good day or a bad day?"
.
The CEO of Pepsi cancelled on him. He won't see her till 2019. Yet its not a bad day. It's another day in the office. Part of the game.

I have at least 5-6 more tips.

Hope we have coffee next time and I get to share these with you.

Love,
Mel
