Be bold, be Malaysian

 | July 1, 2012

Be very aware of what you see, hear and touch. We are still being exposed to many negative environments today.

COMMENT

I was reading some negative news in a local newspaper the other day. The news detail was not important but what it did was to portray Malaysia as a nation with many domestic issues in its economic and political climate.

Such news has a very hypnotic effect on every Malaysian. I bet by today, most Malaysians will believe that our country is molded in almost every accusation and statements made by the foreign leaders about us being a nation with a serious backyard problem.

Whether it has truth to it or not, must we be overwhelm by these reporting?  Oh surely there is more truth to that!

The Map created in our Mind is Not the Actual Territory.  Malaysia has always been a peaceful country of high integrity and great people tolerance for many years.

We are subjected to many forms of belief conditioning from our local and global environment and peer groups. These beliefs determine whether or not you feel like you’re meeting your values.

Does such news make you more Malaysian or does it break you as a Malaysian? It is true that it will either limit or liberate your love for the country and the people.

Globalisation is rampant and the world has never been the same. Our belief structure has been so condition by global happening that it has been generalised as “Life is.., People are.., I am…, What to do..” .

Our beliefs are also made critical by rules which are conditional ideas as “If this, then that”. We are what they think!

Be very aware of what you see, hear and touch today. We are still being exposed to many negative environments today.

Be bold

Access every form of sensory information that you receive and make level and balance decision on it. There may well be as many negative influences in life as there are positive: observe them, accept that they exist, but realize that you do not have to entertain them.

Many a time, unknowingly we pick up sentence structures that twist the facts and then get embedded into our belief values.

Simple conditionings like “that person threw his sweet wrapper on the street. So it is ok for me to do so” will trigger you to do the same and litter rubbish on the streets.

Mix with the right peer group because they will enhance your true individual and Malaysian values.

This will keep you off unreasoned anger, fears and phobias which can be more subtle. They can be buried in the subconscious and can repeatedly frustrate our best endeavors and most ardent desires.

No conscious effort on our part can override the power of the imagination if it is conditioned by fear, superstition, hate, envy, worry, jealousy, anger, resentment and any of a host of other negative, self-limiting emotions.

So, replace the word ‘terrorism’ in your mind with ‘tourism’ and be an ambassador of peace and smile to everyone. Erase the sentence ‘racism and individual-nesses with ‘multi cultural national unity’.

Replace the thought, that the economical market is slow now., with the thought that you have in Malaysia all the supportive business structure to succeed.

Your product and services are world class and much sought after. Be bold, be Malaysian.
