The Straits Times Mind Your Body Fit And Fab Article – Mr Confident
There’s an ancient proverb which I came across recently. It reads “once is a fluke, twice is a trend, three times is a habit.”
Maybe I’m getting used to seeing myself in the national papers again. But in all honesty, I’m truly grateful for each and every opportunity. And to be doubly honest, my eyes were wide awake at 4am while lying in bed yesterday…while my ears were straining to hear the familiar sounds of the newspaper vendor delivering the newspaper to my house.
Every article is a new form of excitement to this big kid. And this one is no different.
While the first was more personal and focused on my toy collection; and the second on my business and investments, this third-parter in The Straits Times Mind Your Body ‘Fit And Fab’ column turned its focus primarily on my health and fitness transformation journey from sickly, pimply, low self-esteemed teenager to a lean, toned, confident young man. Interestingly enough, this transformation is one that strikes a chord with many readers out there.
We all have some areas of our body which we are not satisfied with. I used to be like that too. But the most important difference between the me back then and the me now was that I took action. Make that massive action. I could have lamented my own misfortune. But instead, triggered by Dad’s illness and subsequent passing away, I took matters into my own hands and chose to redesign my life the way I wanted it to be. And this redesigning took time as I did it the natural way.
I did waste precious time initially experimenting with my workouts and mealplans but I have since hit the right formula. That’s why clients are happy I have let them in to my little black books that document the struggles and how they can avoid the same pitfalls while getting results faster.
Relying on a exercise programme, eating the right foods and a proper skincare regime, the transformation started to breathe a life of its own both internally and externally. And once I started seeing results, there was no stopping.
And like they say, the rest is history.
I’m happy to share my life story with readers out there as I believe it will motivate them to take action of their own to achieve the dreams they had set for themselves. Let us shape our own destiny with our own hands.
And before I forget, here’s the Mind Your Body article. Happy reading! And yes, I have a new nickname given by the press – Mr Confident 🙂
