Everyone sees problems.
Most sees the solution.
Some sees steps and ways to overcome them.
Sadly, unfortunately and usually, noone is seen taking action.
And the problem is seen again.
You know, if you wanted to, you could have done it.
So tell me, what do you really see, and what’s there to stop you?
Be the solution.
Not just the dictator, and certainly not just the announcer.
Be the solution.
The solution is you.

Man are made to be more fragile than glass, and yet they grow to be stronger than iron.
I’m a believer that when things happen, there’s no point in returning to the past to play the blame game. But rather to look forward and continue charting or recharting your paths.
We may not possess the miracle of avoiding catastrophe but we sure do have the capacity to meander around disabilities to thrive and survive.
Make amends with what we have today.
Make peace with what we’ve done yesterday.
But most importantly make do (plans) with what we’ll receive tomorrow.
Thankful always, in the grander scheme of things.
My family suffered a catastrophic accident last Tuesday morning, and it’s Wednesday night already. To be exact it was Mummy and Daddy, but in the grander scheme of things, it was an accident to everyone related. From the 2year old Baby Irfan that urgently needs a new babysitter now — ‘cos Mummy needs to look after herself now after her (thankfully) successful night surgery, to the close and distant family member that executed a change of plans to accomodate a visit. Then again, it was an epiphany in every sense of the word too.
In the grander scheme of things, I believe things will work itself out for the better. The way I look at it, the glass isn’t half empty right now, it’s half full. And everyone in the family are already making plans to fill it to the brim again.

1. You underestimate the competition.
2. You motivate the competition.
3. You are the competition.
I saw how the Spanish football team took to the field against the unfancied Italians last night, and I’m not sure if it was just me whom noticed the smuggy Spanish faces, of which I dare say do gingerly tilt towards over-confidence.
They terribly underestimated the Italian contingent, and the Italians were grateful for the nonchalant defending of Casilas and co, attacking wave after wave relentlessly.
Truly, it’s a pity that much of what the Italians got for their efforts were a mundane defiance from the Spanish players still refusing to accede their lost of grip during the game.
Before the game even began, the motivated Italian team knew what they had to do and they knew that Spain, was the team to beat for this European championships.
Indeed, Spain was the competition, and when you’re the competition, everyone ups their game against you.
Suddenly everyone has a reason to beat you.
That’s why sometimes, it’s best to stay low profile and play the underdogs.
Heh, just ask Chelsea.
