1 more very important lesson I learnt in MMI, that is to celebrate. It is of upmost importance to recognize your efforts and achievements and then celebrate it. You have to give thanks to yourself, and reward yourself when you did good; if not you will lose sight of the reson why are you striving so hard for. There will always be someone "better" than you in some way or another, this is a fact that cannot change. But if you were to wait till you become "the best" before you recognise your own efforts and success; the probabilty is that you will never get to celebrate that thinking this way. Focus on yourself, you cannot control others. If you do not learn to celebrate small successes, you will never get to the point to celebrate something bigger. Celebration does not mean being light headed or resting on your laurels later, it just means to tell yourself:"you did great!, let's jiayou more!"

You know celebration comes in many forms, it need not be like a party kind, everyone gets drinks on the house and dance to the music etc. Celebration can also be just a quiet meal and sharing with some friends of yours, or even the joy and high fives all around (bubble tea works pretty well too) after you succeed in a new stunt is also a form of celebration. Success breeds success right, so does celebration - the more you celebrate, the more you attract celebration into your life.

There was once, during an NFL game, Team A was losing to Team B by a huge margin and there was only minutes left to play. Team A managed to score a try at the last minute, and ran around celebrating like they have won the title, even though they still lost. After the game, the captain was interviewed about his team's wild celebrations even though the try means nothing to the game final result. The captain simply said,"Because we want to win the next game!"

You see the point is to learn to celebrate when you achieve something, however small it may be, so as to build momemtum for the "next game". You do not want to end off a game or a session feeling down, you lose the momemtum. This is the reason why we always push for 1 final "all stunts up" or 1 good effort to end off the day; we all like to end with a high so we can start on a high again the next "game".

So celebration attracts celebration; if you do not learn to celebrate, you probably will not celebrate at all, and you are telling your life not to give you a reason to let you celebrate. So when you did something you feel proud of, show it, share it to the world, so that your friends can celebrate it with you, drawing all the positive energies into your life. Even a simple " great job", "nice one", or "you did great" comment from your friend encourages you, and they are celebrating with you. The people who celebrates with you too will feel the uplifting energy if they are truely happy for you; the same power will go to you when you celebrate and congratulate a friend sincerly for their success. When people got a breakthrough, "jump onto the bangwagon" with them; go with where the positive energy is, tap off from their successes, celebrate with them and soon you will find success knocking on your doors too.

P.S: If you have got it, show it; and there will always be those who will celebrate it with you.

Find that inner you

I was thinking and reviewing the 4 key steps that I brought up in the post Ultimate Dream. I came to a conclusion that the hardest point to achieve is probably no. 2) - Be aware of yourself; acknowledge and model the successes of others.

(1)To have a dream is probably easy and straight forward, and then to (3)believe in it and (4)acting it out is not too hard if you really want to achieve it. But (2), that is to be aware of yourself, and to accept and model the success of people is hard. I guess it all comes down to ego. How many people will dig up their true weakness and will go around telling people and admitting their weakness? Or even more, acknowledging and accepting other's people's success and learn? These are times we wonder how come our ego is so big.

I may not have the biggest ego around, I learn to at least acknowledge and respect the person ahead of me at least in my mind, though I may not say it out sometimes. However at times I do blog it out too, to reflect my inner thoughts.

I recognise and give thanks to my "roots" and mentor-

I respect and model the successes before me - The Great

I paid tribute to and strive to emulate one of my model - 巅峰不过是开头

So ask yourself, how do you want to live out your life?

P.S: Please do not take my word or quote me for it, find out the way for yourself. All I can do is share what works for me.

My fellow Undergraduate

I believe that we should always go into a competition aimming to win it, no matter how much the odds seems to stack against you. So even if we did not win, we will not have regrets and we know that we will be that much closer in future (the future generation).

Win or lose, the process of getting there will never change; the fun and laughter, tears and pain. Let's us all cherish the moments with our teammates each and every training; they will be your memories for life, so why not make it happy memories...

P.S: Falling down is painful, but when you know that you have great friends around to lift you up, it is all worth it.

Ultimate Dream

Watched the video made personally by my 徒弟few years back already? If you did I hope that you enjoyed it or had a good laugh at it.

Everyone starts from the beginning and slowly work their way to the top. The above mentioned video might be funny to some, especially to those that went through the road together with Kelvin Awesome right from the start; but at the same time, I think the main message that I am trying to bring across is that everyone starts the same, and then you write your own story from then on.

Another important message is that everyone should have your own "Ultimate Dream", and then work towards it. It is fundamental that you be humble, admit your weakness and acknowledge the success and abilities of those before you; model someone you know, and that goal you set out to achieve will be reached faster than you know it.

1. Dreams
2. Be aware of yourself; acknowledge and model the successes of others
3. Positive thoughts and Believe in your dreams
4. Actions

Achieve these step by step and you can be sure you can achieve and even exceed your "Ultimate Dream". If Kelvin Awesome can do it, so can you.

P.S: Something I learnt, "If you want to be rich, do what rich people do." So similarly, "If you want to be great, do what great people do."

Story of my 徒弟

Was talking about history just now, how each of us went through a long tough road in cheerleading. And then we remembered and brought back memories of a long lost video made by non other than our Cheerobics 2009 Partner Stunt Champion Base; who everyone come to know as Kelvin Awesome. It is a never seen before footage by the public (only certain fortunate people ever saw it), something like a "Leak xxx Tape".

Remember this post, Awesome WPSL? And the video below?

Would you all be interested to see the "self made home video" of my first 徒弟? Of how he began his cheerleading career?

How many of you would like to see the "Leak xxx Tape"? Haha. Ok the wait is finally over.

For the first time it shall go live to all!!

He was indeed very kind to be willing to share this video with everyone and given me the permission to do so. His hope is that it can inspire the young budding cheerleaders out there and to let all have a good laugh at the same time.

Ok without further a do...

Presenting to you the video taken out from the archives; from the olden times where video specifications were less than 1 megapixels.


You surpassed your "Ultimate Dream" by miles and is still going on and on...

P.S: This guy has grown by leaps and bounds (so has his size literally, haha) since the first day I see him cheer; No doubt a Champion in everyone's eyes.

Millionaire Mind

I was wondering to myself:"How come I feel much better doing stunts these few days; I haven been training at all for almost the past half a year." I came to the conclusion that it comes down to 3 main reasons.

1. I lost weight
2. My knee hurts less now
3. My mindset changed

For the past almost half a year, from the time I came back from Taiwan, I had been losing weight. From 90kg when I just came back from Taiwan, to 84kg in 3 months. Then I started taking this nutrition supplement as a meal replacement, and for the next 2 months, I lost another 4 kg to 80kg. I lost a total of 10kg in 5 months.

My knee also hurts less now, I feel it may be because of the lesser weight on them and also because of the nutrition supplement that I am taking. It helps the body restore to a well balance state.

The last reason, which I felt was the main reason for feeling better, is the mind. In fact, it was my mental which drives me to lose weight and got introduced to the amazing product. What you want in life, you attract it to you.

A person's life is determined by 4 components, Mental, Emotional, Spiritual and Physical. Realise that 75% of it is in the head. And of that 75%, mental is the 1 that is the most within your control (it is much harder to control emotions, thats why people often emo). Consider this analogy, the fruits of the tree synonymies to your success; and if the fruit is rotten, where do you think is the problem? The problem is probably in the roots. And the roots synonymies to your mind. What you cannot see (the roots) is 75% of the equation to success.

I have been trying to work on myself the past 2 months, especially in the mental aspect. By a combination of a sequence of seemingly random events, I went for the Millionaire Mind Intensive (MMI) seminar held at Expo over the weekends. It was a seminar by T Harv Eker, author of the "Secrets of a millionaire mind". Objective of the seminar is to show people the minds and habits of rich people and help begin the process to condition everyone to think, believe and act like rich people, so that everyone can become rich and successful like the millionaires in the world.

Some people may have started saying that it is so corny, cheesy, stupid, scam or whatever negative. I do know and got to interact with such people with a very negative mindset to change and learning. I can understand them, and the reason for such a behaviour is because it is programmed deep down into their subconcious already. However if you have an open mind, I am very sure if you implement what you learnt(from the seminar), you will become very successful. In fact I was only half correct when I said "implement what you learnt"; it should be unlearning what was taught to you in the past that got you to the state you are in now. Ever heard of old habits die hard; this is what it is all about, "unlearning" your old habits that stops you from more successes. I cannot remember whose quote, but it goes someting like: "Failure is often not about what you do not know, it is about what you know that just ain't so"

MMI was fundamentally supposed to be a seminar on how to create wealth, how to become rich; but I thought that it goes much beyond just generating money, it gives alot of insights into life itself. I always mentioned in the past that to do cheerleading or any other sport to the highest level, you have to do it as your lifestyle. This is no difference when you want to attain high levels of success - you have to live success as your lifestlye. Success as with everything else can be trained.

My mother was telling me that she watched videos of T Harv Eker before almost 10 years ago, and that he looked slimmer and much healthier now. I guess success, health and your image are directly related. In fact they are as revealed in the seminar. If you want to change the world, start by changing yourself. It is also no wonder, that statistically, obese people are not as successful as those not. (Don't take my word for this; just go google on this topic and you can find lots of articles relating obesity with health and money.) This is not the same as saying fat people will not be successful; but just maybe not realising their full potential.

Henry Ford: "If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're both right". Your life is basically made up of your thoughts, and then living in such a way to fulfill your thoughts. You manifest your thoughts, no matter positive or negative. The universe has infinite possibilities, it will give you what you asked for.

The last part to the puzzle would be then to receive. Receive what the universe is trying to give you, it may come in the form of signs or hints, in form of a person, or inspired thoughts. It may not always be something which you like, if you asked for help, but is still resistant to receive, then all the goodness will go to someone else. Your comfort zone is in direct proportion to your money zone; be willing to do what's uncomfortable and it will be the time you are growing.

So all in all, what is in a millionaire's mind? To sum it up: it is not just about making lots of money, but in a millionaire's mind, it is desire, the belief and the lifestyle to succeed. One cannot achieve complete success if one cannot become better from every single cell of one's body. Start to find improvment in your life, focus on the improvements, and improvements will come. The greatest hurdle often comes in the form of: "I know that".

P.S: Just when you think the road is going nowhere; just when you've almost gave up on your dreams...


The smaller I become, the better I get.

P.S: Going to see 7 soon.

Success breeds success

Below is an article based on a study done in MIT. When people tell you it is ok to fail and learn from your mistake, they are probably half right. It is ok to fail, but you do not "learn" till you succeed.

If you've ever felt doomed to repeat your mistakes, researchers at MIT's Picower Institute for Learning and Memory may have explained why: Brain cells may only learn from experience when we do something right and not when we fail.

In the July 30 issue of the journal Neuron, Earl K. Miller, the Picower Professor of Neuroscience, and MIT colleagues Mark Histed and Anitha Pasupathy have created for the first time a unique snapshot of the learning process that shows how single cells change their responses in real time as a result of information about what is the right action and what is the wrong one.

"We have shown that brain cells keep track of whether recent behaviors were successful or not," Miller said. Furthermore, when a behavior was successful, cells became more finely tuned to what the animal was learning. After a failure, there was little or no change in the brain - nor was there any improvement in behavior.

The study sheds light on the neural mechanisms linking environmental feedback to neural plasticity - the brain's ability to change in response to experience. It has implications for understanding how we learn, and understanding and treating learning disorders.

Rewarding success

Monkeys were given the task of looking at two alternating images on a computer screen. For one picture, the animal was rewarded when it shifted its gaze to the right; for another picture it was supposed to look left. The monkeys used trial and error to figure out which images cued which movements.

The researchers found that whether the animals' answers were right or wrong, signals within certain parts of their brains "resonated" with the repercussions of their answers for several seconds. The neural activity following a correct answer and a reward helped the monkeys do better on the trial that popped up a few seconds later.

"If the monkey just got a correct answer, a signal lingered in its brain that said, 'You did the right thing.' Right after a correct answer, neurons processed information more sharply and effectively, and the monkey was more likely to get the next answer correct as well," Miller said, "But after an error there was no improvement. In other words, only after successes, not failures, did brain processing and the monkeys' behavior improve."

1 Week+ to Germany

It's now about 1 week more to the IFC world championship in Germany. We will be competing in the group stunt international category.

Today training was the best so far, manage to get all stunts up(without the "icing on the cake" yet though).

OK, for those who want to take a look at the sneak preview video, leave me an email with your name to request for it.

Thanks for all the support.

Defeat doesn't finish a man – QUIT does.
A man is not finished when he's defeated.
He's FINISHED when he quits

Richard Milhous Nixon (1913 – 94) U.S. president


The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination.
Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming of it.
To overcome, one must either find a way, or make one.

Most people achieved their greatest success one step beyond what looked like their greatest failure. In other words, many of life's failures are men who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

4 years seemed to pass so quickly...

many more to come.

Never try never know

Just as I was trying to find means and ways to achieve success, I came across a pretty cool website as I was doing my research. Heard of Binaural Beats? Basically it works by helping you to lower your brain frequency to a desired state, such as the state of meditation etc, that are beneficial to you.

One of the beats that got me to the site, and that I interests me most is "Manifestation". It aids LOA by by eliminating the brain's natural blockages which helps you rid yourself of doubt and negative feelings. One more benefit - it is said to very fast. (Speeds up the LOA process = Full up Cupie sooner)

The site has alot of other very interesting ones too.
