Are you confidence in yourself? I know that a lot of us, including myself, do have the talents / skills and knowledge but just do not dare to take the next steps that might the stopper to your own success.
If we do not take the next steps or overcome our lack of confident, we will be stagnant and will be living in dark forever.
Yong Kah Leong, in his late 30s and weighing in at 160kg, Leong had been battling with his weight for years. He had a personal challenge of losing weight to have a better quality of life and gain self confidence. It’s very important that we always to have self confidence so that when doing / performing a task we would not fallback and will strike the goal.
Our perception of ourselves have enormous impact on how others perceive us. Perception is reality, the more self confidence you have, the more likely it is you’ll succeed!
Self-confidence is extremely important in almost every aspect of our lives, yet so many people struggle to find it. Sadly, this can be a vicious circle, People who lack self-confidence can find it difficult to become successful.
As part of his mentoring programme, he ran the Penang Bridge International Marathon, which was held recently in Penang. Having never run in a marathon before, Leong wanted to prove to himself that it is never too late to change and do something that he never thought he could do.
When Jack Lim 林德荣 first met Leong, he was an overweight gentleman with low self esteem. His style and movements were slow and he lacked the energy to do any strenuous activities.
The three months that followed prior to the run was grueling to Leong as he underwent a series of workout sessions under a personal trainer from Fitness First. Nevertheless, he never gave up and was determined all the way.
During his free time, he and Jack also ran in the park to build up his stamina. He keep pushing himself to get fit and wants to looks good so that people will not turn away from him because of his size.
Leong was also engaged with a dietician from the Department of Nutrition & Dietetics, Ms. Lee Ching Li, who educated him on the right food to take. In fact, for three months, his food intake was constantly monitored. It’s not only keeping fit but it’s also being healthy and having a better lifestyle.
At the recent Penang Bridge International Marathon, Leong completed his first 10km run, with the support from Jack and friends. This is a kind biggest achievement for him I supposed as he able to complete the very first 10km marathon which I myself also yet to run for 10km marathon before!
Quote from Leong: I was so excited and inspired when I completed my first run, and I want to continue training and do a full marathon some day. I have learned that with determination and confidence, you can achieve anything.
He was someone who was nervous, fumbling and overly apologetic, but now it’s the total opposite!
Are you one of them like Leong? Just a small change in your lifestyle can make a difference to a healthier you. So start having a good diet and exercise more from today! Life your life better and undoubtedly!

Malaysia’s Datuk Lee Chong Wei 李宗伟 beats China’s Lin Dan 林丹 12-21, 21-18, and 21-14 at the Korea Open Super Series badminton championships in Seoul, South Korea yesterday to win his first title of the year. Finally!
OMG did you notice Lin Dan hair style?! So damn “Leong” lor… Haha… Would all the China men follow his hairstyle now? You wanna cut such hair style boh? Haha.
No matter where Lee Chong Wei place the shutter Lin Dan will be there before the shutter even reach the court. Reading his mind well! Lin Dan made Datuk Lee Chong Wei run like a dog yet Chong Wei still can’t return the cock well. Mistake & unforced error keep on happening.
On the other hand, the 2nd and rubber set, Datuk Lee Chong re-bounced! I thought macam Lin Dan “fong sui” one leh? Or they already discussed letting who win & how many games to play? Arggh. If it’s real I did happy for #LCW, but I think it’s not and it’s the mindset that make Chong Wei bounced back and defeat Lin Dan! Good Job! Malaysia Boleh!
See how Datuk Lee make money? It’s only 1st 8 days of the year and he made USD75k = ~MYR225k! How to make such amount of money!
Datuk Lee Chong Wei 李宗伟 is still World Number 1 & above Lin Dan 林丹!
Chong Wei downs Lin Dan to reaffirm his Olympic intentions
PETALING JAYA: World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei stamped his credentials as a potential candidate to win Malaysia’s first Olympic gold medal with a scintillating victory over nemesis Lin Dan in the Korea Open yesterday.
The 29-year-old Chong Wei overcame a listless start to carve out a 12-21, 21-18, 21-14 win over four-time world champion Lin Dan of China in a physically taxing one-hour and 15-minute men’s singles final at the US$1mil tournament in Seoul.
The brilliant start to the year earned him a cool US$75,000 (RM235,875) ang pow for the upcoming Chinese New Year.
And there could be more when he goes after his eighth home title at the US$400,000 Maybank Malaysia Open, which begins on Wednesday at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil.

It was his second Korean Open title after having won it in 2010 and his ninth career win over Lin Dan in 27 clashes.
Yesterday’s win erased fears that Chong Wei will always be in the shadow of the Chinese star – especially after losing in the World Championships, China and Hong Kong Opens last year.
The most painful defeat came at the world meet when Chong Wei lost despite leading 20-18 in the decider in the final.
Yesterday, Chong Wei’s display showed that he has got over the disappointments.
“It is a new year and I wanted a fresh start. It is great to start the Olympic year with a title by beating my close rival Lin Dan. This is a positive sign for me ahead of the Olympic Games,” said Chong Wei in a telephone interview.
“The win is a confidence booster for me. It was a physically draining match but it was really worth it.”
It was not all that smooth sailing for Chong Wei when the opening game saw the best and also worst of him. He was doing fine – playing well at the net and taking time to open up the game – until 6-6 and then he lost the plot to allow Lin Dan to pull away for an easy 21-12 win. Not many would have put their money on Chong Wei to recover from the lopsided opening game setback but he did. He took all that was thrown at him and then executed some exquisite moves at 18-18 to romp home for victory in the second game.
Chong Wei continued to show more urgency and aggression in the decider to outfox Lin Dan and at one point, the latter was left shaking his head in disbelief over the Malaysian’s deception.
And to top his misery, Lin Dan’s game was littered with uncharacteristic mistakes and it saw the Chinese finally giving up the fight and the Korean Open crown to Chong Wei.
“The first game against Lin Dan did not go as I planned but I kept chanting in my heart that I could pull through if I stayed focused. The win in the second game gave me all the confidence that I needed to go all the way.”
“This is a great start for me and from now it is important that I keep the momentum going and stay injury-free.
“I will return home tomorrow (today) and focus on the Malaysia Open. I do not want to disappoint my fans and I will go all out to keep my unbeaten run intact on home soil.”
Both his coaches – Tey Seu Bock and Rashid Sidek – who were with him in Seoul, were delighted.
Said Rashid: “It is rare to see Lin Dan losing his focus but today he did. And this is all due to Chong Wei’s superb comeback. He did well to change and vary his game to make Lin Dan very uncomfortable today.”
Said Seu Bock: “Credit should be given to Chong Wei for the hard work he put in today. This win will be a big boost to his morale. Of course, Lin Dan and his other team-mates will come back stronger at the Malaysia Open but if there is one place where it is difficult to beat Chong Wei, it is on his home ground.
“Physically, both players have been pushed to the limit but I am confident that Chong Wei will recover in time.”

Yay! It’s awesome to be invited to the Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011 @ Putrajaya Marriott Hotel even I’m not one of the nominee yet I still feel proud and happy to be there with so many famous bloggers from all around the region!
Wanted to arrive early to mingle with others awesome bloggers from all the Asia-Pacific Region (Singapore, Philippines, Australia, Thailand, Hong Kong, China, and Brunei) but failed… due to the Google Map failed! The map bring me to no where and it’s in the middle of highway! Luckily at least I still able to find my way there! Lolz.
I was sitting at table 14 together with Joshuaongys, Tey Cindy, Jian @ Akiraceo, Tian Chad, Chuckei @ Jane and Ashley
There’s few performances on that night and it’s awesome! Pole dancing!
Harith Iskander telling jokes, some of his jokes really good and most of it is localized to Malaysian or Singaporean! I remember two of his jokes, he said the translation of our movie in cinema fail big time because – “Holy Shit” will be translated to “Tahi Suci” and “One Night Stand” will be translated to “Satu Malam Berdiri!”. Lolz…
After that went to Zouk for after party awhile and that concluded my day. Thank you Nuffnang for all these years being there to make my blogging life more interesting!
