Think and Grow Rich

Originally, I was going to write a post on, “Why I hate the Education System”. But I’ll save that for next week since the book “Think And Grow Rich” is freshly on my mind.

I’ve heard great things about the book, so I figured, why not read the book? After all, you can never be too inspired, right? 😉

Anyhow, in my opinion, the book is powerful BUT some of the chapters seemed a bit repetitive and/or unnecessary. I definitely didn’t read every word, but there are some very meaningful/deep points that intrigued me. I would like to share them with you:

1. “A quitter never wins – and a winner never quits.” 

This is so simple and obvious. However, I find it so inspiring. If you want to succeed in anything, you have to keep going even when things are tough. If you quit, then you automatically lose.

This reminds me of a time when someone told me, “I never listen to quitters.”

Many times, quitters will tell you that you cannot do things because they themselves couldn’t do it. Has a winner ever told you to quit?

Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 30.

To my dear readers,

Translating takes SO LONG. I am always at the fence of quitting. Haha. But although I always complain, you know I’m still going to do it. I can’t leave you guys hanging. 😛  (I know, I’m so nice lol)

It is so much work. But when I finish a chapter, I do feel a slight sense of accomplishment. I hope you guys enjoy reading this. Also, today, surprisingly, I received over 3000 views in ONE DAY and I didn’t post up anything (yet)!?! That’s amazing! (but still broke because only two people has donated to me since my translation journey).

Anyhow, this is my promoted post: Questionnaire for Yourself

And this is the chapter in Chinese

P.S. Help this poor translator out yo! 😉

Chapter 30     Ridiculous turn of event

“Hummpt! All these years, we have never truly fought a proper match. Come! You think I’m afraid of you?!” Tian Yu Zi provoked as he pointed obnoxiously at Wu Ya Zi; he wouldn’t shut up.

The audience did not expect this scene to take place. Originally, they came to watch the competition. Now, they were just dumbstruck by what had happened. They didn’t know what was going on.

However, Tian Yu Zi and Wu Ya Zi’s fight disagreement was definitely ruining their reputations. As Wu Dang’s elders, they were supposed to behave in a certain manner (respectable and serious). Yet, their current behaviour was unacceptable.

However, their actions were giving the audience a new and fresh feeling.

Tian Yu Zi and Wu Ya Zi were already on the stage; the fury had been ignited.

Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 29.

To my dear readers,

This chapter took me three separate days to finish because I haven’t been feeling well. The weather in Toronto has been awful and it’s making me very weak. Anyhow, I hope you like it. It always sounds awkward to me, but hopefully it isn’t too bad. Please donate if you appreciate and want to support me.

This is the chapter in Chinese (Remember, I didn’t translate word for word. Some phrases are impossible. And I skipped a few lines if it’s just a repeat of what the author had mentioned many times before)

Chapter 29     A sudden event

Xuan Luo looked up onto the stage as well. He had fought with Tang Chen once before, so he was aware of Tang Chen’s potential; aside from having some flaws in his steps, everything else was fine.

“Haha. You didn’t participate last time, eh?!” Zhan Feng Hua seemed to recognized Tang Chen. (I thought he participated in every competition before Xuan Luo came…the author needs to make up his mind. -_-)

Currently, Tang Chen was twenty five years of age. Even Zhang Ri was twenty four. This meant that Tang Chen had been with Wu Dang for a very long time. Most of the disciples entered a Clan at the age of seven or eight; some even at five or six. Each Clan was located at a different area. People’s choices may differ as well. However, Wu Dang was the most popular because it was closest to Du Cheng.

Other Clans were located in faraway provinces. It could take months to arrive at a Clan (which would require a lot of money). Hence, the reality was that only those who came from affluent families may choose the Clan of their choice. Continue reading “Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 29.”

Why you should start an Online Business

Online business

Disclaimer: I am not writing this to promote any companies whatsoever. I am sharing some wisdom with you! Please take the time to read and digest what I have to say.

First of all, you might wonder, “Why should I start an online business? It’s so unrealistic and too much work. I am realistic and I have a real job. How likely am I going to survive off an online business?”

I’m not telling you to quit your job! Hear me out:

1. You should strive for multiple sources of income. This is a given. Why would you want to rely solely on your job? Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

There are no guarantees you can make money from an online business. But stop thinking of reasons why it can fail rather than the possibilities you could have if you do succeed!

Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 28.

To my dear readers,

I have been slacking. Honestly, I always give myself an imaginary deadline (every 3 days or so), or else I will never translate. It is so much work. *sigh* Sometimes, I randomly go onto wuxiaworld to read other translators’ translations and they are so good. Those translators are hardcore. It may seem like it’s easy to translate, but it takes a lot of skills and brain power.

Anyhow, this chapter wasn’t too hard but it was really confusing to read in Chinese. I had to modify some stuff again. I think the author had typos, so I had to change some wordings or it wouldn’t make sense.

Chapter 28     Zhan Feng Hua

“Wu Di shi di actually lost. Wow, I guess Zi Yang Palace has more potential than I thought!” A man looked at Xuan Yuan Duan Ai with admiration.

That man was Zhan Feng Hua. He was one of the top disciples from Chun Yang Palace. He practiced Wu Dang’s second best nei gong xin fa, liang yi gong.

Wu Dang had a total of three sets of nei gong xin fa. The most basic one was hu xin gong, then liang yi gong came in second, and lastly, the best was chun yang wu ji gong. Those who practiced the chun yang wu ji gong would directly become Zhang Men’s disciples. Those under Zhang Men were all well known figures. An example would be Zhang Ri; he definitely represented as one of Zhang Men’s greatest disciples.

Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 27.

To my dear readers,

This chapter took SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO LONG. It was SOOOOOOO HARD. I had to adjust a lot of stuff but it’s still really good. I hope you really like it. Please donate to support me if you can. This chapter took 5 hours of my life. I put a lot of effort into making it as smooth as possible for all of you to read.

Chapter 27     Single Elimination Open Tournament: Round One

“Old man…” Xuan Luo quietly murmured. Seeing Tian Yu Zi act like this, Xuan Luo felt an emotion he could not explain. Perhaps it was because they had spent two years day and night; his attachment towards Tian Yu Zi had deepen. Aside from Guan Shan Jue, Tian Yu Zi was the other person in his heart.

“You little monkey! If you don’t kick their ass, I’m not going to be done with you! I’m going to die from anger!” Originally, Xuan Luo wanted to comfort Tian Yu Zi; but his words shocked him. He was lying down and he still got shot? (He wasn’t actually shot. He just meant Tian Yu Zi was angry at him even though he didn’t do anything) What the heck.

It wasn’t surprising that Tian Yu Zi was so angry. He was fed up with Chun Yang Palace’s bullying.

“Forget it. Let’s go. This time, no matter what, we have to get Zi Yang Palace’s face back!” (The concept of face mainly has to do with pride). Xuan Yuan Duan Ai consoled on the side.

“Yes!” Xuan Luo and Tang Chen both agreed. Regardless, they must win back their face!

Speed Dating

This is actually my 100th post and my 2nd anniversary blogging on WordPress. Since my friends on facebook love relationship posts so much, I thought I’d share my experience at speed dating.

In December, I went speed dating with a friend of mines. I had never done anything like this before, so I had no expectations. In fact, I wasn’t even planning to look for someone. Anyhow, allow me to explain to you how it works.

The website is called 25dates.com . First, you select your preference. Then, you select where you live near to (you will see what I mean if you go on the site). Then, you will be able to look for an event that matches the age preference that you want and register.

Our venue was at a lounge. When we arrived, we were assigned a number. Women were given an even number, while men were given an odd number.
