When writing this, I am learning myself and sharing it with you…

Make People Believe There is Something Great in Them.

When someone love you, they will understand even if you don’t explain. When someone doesn’t care about you, why bother of explaining? Just be happy and Stay true to yourself. 

Everyone is fighting their own battle. No need to change yourself just to make people like you, and end up hating yourself. Be kind to everyone, they are also trying to reach their own dream, and even more important, always love yourself.

Look at The Sunshine and Universe Will Help You.

“This can’t be done…” Ignore criticism at all cost. “Call you stupid” Ignore. “Call you crazy” Ignore. Everything is impossible until someone do it. Continue believing in your dream.

Funny to remember that one of my idea that was rejected, actually won the design innovation awards in the international competition later on. Believe that everything is always worked out for the best.

Not Living Based on Other People Opinion, Live To The Fullest.

Forgive yourself. Every mistakes, every failure, every rejection is there to protect you, teaches you, and toughen your spirit. No one in this world is perfect, be strong and smarter day by day. With criticism or praise, always do your best.

Sometimes no matter how hard you try, how kind you are, how good you are, you still meet with uncertainty. What’s not belong to you, just forget about it… What belongs to you will come to you, in a bigger, unexpected, and wonderful way.

I do believe that we choose what we want to be. Become smart, become kind, become someone better everyday. And when you love yourself more, and you can help others become the best version of themselves too.

Not because you want to get praise / like / compliment, etc. But because you believe that everything will work out the best.

Remember, action speaks louder than words. Show them you as a designer have the power to do so. Hohoho… ❤️
