Fruit Of Success – Loving The Last, Least, And Lost

Fruit Of Success – Loving The Last, Least, And Lost

There are many among us who are poor, weak, and disadvantaged.

Tonight as we sleep in the comfort of our beds, many will cry themselves to sleep.

Many of the elderly and children will go to bed hungry and wondering if they will pull through the night, let alone survive another day.

Also, Planet Earth is sick.

We have been strangling Earth for so many years and killing the essence of what will keep Earth alive.

Some people have predicted that it may not even last beyond our generation.

How can we resolve these challenges?

Governments cannot resolve these problems because politicians are dependent on popular votes.

There are limitations to what they can do and achieve.

Universities and other educational institutions cannot fully address these issues because they are focused primarily on the pursuit of knowledge.

It is not in their charter to implement plans and initiatives to resolve social and environmental problems.

Charity bodies have been around for thousands of years. They cannot offer a sustainable solution because they lack talents, money and other resources.

To resolve these challenges, we need a fourth key – every one of us.

When the people sector works closely with the public and private sectors, we can overcome these challenges.

If every one of us join hands together and do our part to spread more love, compassion and kindness, we can make our world a better home.

We can also inspire a new generation to put to right all the wrongs in society. We can leave behind a better world for our children and our children’s children.

In the distant past, I have given myself excuses that I was too busy. I needed to focus on doing well and then, I would do my part in doing good.

I would start when I have made enough money and achieved success.

Wrong.

All of us can still give back to society even as an employee or while running a business. Learn to become more productive and get better results so that we can do more for the least, the last, and the lost.

Over the years, my team and I have done my small little part in helping the needy and giving back to society.

We have founded more than six charity initiatives and am still actively involved with them.

Donated thoughts, time, talent and treasure (including money) to help the weak, needy and disadvantaged live a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

Provided leadership and advisory services to charities, civic organizations, professional bodies, grassroots, and other non-profit organizations.

Supported many other charitable, philanthropic, and humanitarian causes.

Contributed to poor orphanages, schools, communities, and other charity projects.

Supported relief efforts for victims of natural and other crises.

Gone on overseas missions to conduct leadership and social entrepreneurship bootcamps and provided other humanitarian services.

Involved in raising funds for different charities. In the process of fulfilling worthwhile causes, we have helped to set 4 national records in the Singapore Book of Records and one record in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Last year, Minister Heng Swee Keat gave the “Champion of Good” recognition to our company.

We hope to be able to inspire you to join us in helping others lead a better life and do whatever we can to make our world a better home.

In summary, please continue to support worthwhile causes and make it an integral part of your life. Aim to do well in your work, and to do good at the same time, all the time.

There are so much needs in society. Even as you are reading this Love Note, there are calls for help coming from different parts of society.
Together, we can do so much more and achieve much better results.

It is a universal law promoted by every major religion that we should always be involved in social contributions. From my experience, our Creator will never shortchange anybody.

Our Creator will always give much more back to us. He will bless us, our loved ones, and our business.

Obviously, we should never give and expect anything back in return.

We can start simply.

How about 15 minutes every week to encourage a needy person? How about drinking one less soft drink per day and donate the savings to charity?

How about sharing your talents and resources for a good cause?

Together, we can start a revolution!

One act of kindness at a time, one person at a time, one day at a time, one community at a time…

Someday, in the not so distant future, our children’s generation will point to our generation and say,

“That’s the generation that started a revolution of love.

“As a result, they eradicated war, violence, and other challenges. Poverty became history.

“These people started to inspire each other to greatness. A new age of love began…”

Go4It!

I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
