I’m Grateful.

by Patrick Liew on December 28, 2015

I’m grateful that I was born in a poor family. It grounded me to the realities of life.

I’m grateful that I was blessed with ADHD. It inspired me to cope with it and with many other setback in life.

I’m grateful that I did not excel in my studies. It empowered me to connect with ordinary people.

I’m grateful my parents could not afford to give me a university education. It compelled me to learn throughout my life and complete a doctoral degree.

I’m grateful that I’m not smart and so I worked harder in the workplace. Working hard helped me to rise through the rank and file to become executive chairman of an MNC.

I’m grateful that I failed badly when I first became an entrepreneur. It helped to develop a never-give-up spirit in me.

I’m grateful that at the peak of my business, I crashed and lost everything. It forced me to redesign the business model and eventually listed the company on Singapore Exchange.

I’m grateful that I went through a few near-death experiences. They helped me to value life and aspire to live it to the fullest.

I’m grateful that I was kidnapped once in my life. It awoken me to realise that what matters the most is our Creator and the people around me.

I’m grateful that I went through many painful experiences. It enlightened me to understand and reach out to the least, the last, and the lost.

I’m grateful for my life. It helped me to chase after the next dream and enjoying every moment in the journey.

What are you grateful about in your life?


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