Copycat to Success

This is a write-up which I will use for my Toastmaster project speech #10 - Inspire Your Audience. Yes, it should be a motivational speech - however,  I would try to deliver it differently by explaining people on How we can succeed through Copying.

Copycat To Success

We Live in a World of Copycats.

As part of human being, we are naturally the creature of copycat. We copy from the Cradle to the Grave! Copycatting starts the day we were born. We copy the language we speak, the food we eat, the hairstyle, the way we walk and the way we dress. When we were in primary school, we were taught to copy alphabets. When we get older, we copy how others drive a car. When in Rome, we Do as the Romans Do.

James Baldwin once said "Children have never been very good at listening to their elders. But they have never failed to imitate them."

Influencing Your Boss

I have been working in 4 different types of organizations. When I say 4 different, it does not only different organization names, but the industry, the size, the background, country of origin, and so-on. What makes this unique is I have learned different organizations have different direction, management style and disciplines.

However, the fundamentals are much less the same. To survive in all of these organizations, the fundamentals to succeed is still the same, the ability to communicate and influence people. Either working with low-level or higher-executives levels, it gives different outcome from the communication ability.

The Power of Gratitude

Imagine, one day you are complaining about your country:
1. The public transportation isn't efficient enough!
2. I drive a second hand car! I can't afford good car because the government is taxing heavily on cars.
3. The weather is too hot!
4. We got dirty toilets!
5. The broadband are too expensive! and SLOW!

What did you get when you are complaining? You feel that here is not the place that best suit you, isn't it? 
The thing is, you are complaining to the wrong person. When you talk to your friends, you brothers/sisters , or even talking to yourself, what did you get? Nothing but the feel of frustration and worst you are focusing on it! You are actually attracting crap to your life.

Loan / Financing payments are accepted without prejudice to any recovery action, pending or contemplated, for the full outstanding amount(s).
(Pembayaran pinjaman / pembiayaan diterima tanpa prasangka terhadap apa-apa tindakan untuk mendapatkan semula jumlah keseluruhan pinjaman / pembiayaan tertunggak, sama ada sedang dijalankan atau dalam perancangan.) 

I have no idea why everytime I pay the loan, this message will appear. Why is the word prejudice is always appearing, either I am paying it on time, or late payment. Anybody would want to give some thought on this?

Frustration , dissatisfaction, disappointment, and discontent

I believe frustration, dissatisfaction, disappointment, and discontent are good things in the face of mediocrity. Man normally transform when they face frustration - and transformation is indeed a good thing. Living in an Ultra World, things aren't always easy. If things are easy, we will always be living inside our comfort zone. There's a saying by Robert Allen - "Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone."
