Dear Friends,

Life has taken me on some amazing journeys. I would like to share some of these magical moments with you in these pages.

Every time I embark on an adventure, I have to learn some new skills in order to tackle the challenges ahead. But I am also re-learning and re-applying some principles again and again - faith, friendship, courage, determination, love and hope. It is heart-warming to know there are timeless and priceless values in this ever changing and chaotic world.

People often ask me "Why and how do you keep going in times of hardship?" I have two answers. Firstly, I only live once. So, I only get one chance. Secondly, when I grow old, I want to leave this life without too many regrets. I would like to be able to say to myself: "I have tried my best."

But if you want to go on a journey that's filled with uncertainties, excitement and surprises, you can't bring along too much luggage. It's important to travel light.

Having had some close calls, without the Creator's protection, I probably wouldn't be here today. That's why I name my son Sheng Feng, meaning, the Holy Mountain. Above all, I hope he will grow up to know his Creator.

After reading these pages, my wish is that you will be inspired to set out to pursue your dreams. Hopefully, someday, you will share with me some of your stories.

Remember, when you decide to try something seemingly impossible, miracles begin.

 Khoo Swee Chiow,
Motivational Speaker
