Hanging-out with smart people are definitely the best way to change our mindset! Oh Gosh, now I know how important good environment is. Talking, chatting, or being around ambitious and effective people brings me things in mind: the world is not enough. Infact, the world is wider and more beautiful than we thought it would be. Our super ambition could be tiny-miny in front of other bright people.
Yesterday, I was having a little talk with senior manager human resources of Samsung electronics
Indonesia, and he gave me a lot of life messages. You know, we always forgot to give thanks when we are failed, infact we have to always (I mean it, always!) give thanks for everything happened in our life. Disaster, traffic jam, death, or injuries, is always end positive. Yap, he told me that, “saya tidak takut pada manusia atau hantu, saya hanya takut pada Tuhan. Jadi, buat apa kamu takut atau gugup? Percayakan saja semua pada Tuhan, bahwa apapun hasilnya, itu yang terbaik untuk semua orang. Gagal atau berhasil, kita harus tetap bersyukur. Bisa aja sebenernya Tuhan tuh sedang menyelamatkan kamu.”
And you know, it happened when I almost lost my faith. I know, there’s lot of wise words I wrote in this blog lately. You may think I am positive person, but I am not. I even said to my pal like this: “makasi banget ya, jujur aja, msg dari lo ini berarti banget buat gw skrg, karena actually this is one of bad moment in my life.
ibaratnya, gw tuh dari tadinya dah bisa berdiri, skrg jatuh terus mesti blajar merangkak lagi dr bawah…
but, well… gue byk dpt hal kok lately nu…. gw belajar kalo hidup itu seperti roda… dan gw belajar untuk percaya sama iman gue terhadap Tuhan… gw belajar ngga ngukur Tuhan dari seberapa banyak permintaan gue yang dikabulin.. dan gue belajar percaya kalo Tuhan sedang ngasih gw yang tbaik. gue msh belajar nu, artinya… sering jg gue ngga bisa kaya gt… ngga segampang itu buat ngerubah mindset gt…”
yap, one day I have a strong faith, and another day I lost it. I’m not perfect.
Then, I walked home with my friend, a student of management UI, and he’s really a great person! He won P&G be champion competition and a 2nd winner of trust by danone competition (he almost gone to
Paris!), and he had lots of common with me. we’re struggling so hard to finish our study and we passed lot of ups and downs, in competitions and recruitments. Yap, people may said people like us won’t find any difficulties, infact none of us called by any company in career days UI 2007. hurt badly..
But, he was more positive than me and he was truly a good leader. He was succeded to lead on some project and bring the idea to cooperate with airasia to flight his 70 senat member to
Bali. Anyway, it was my regretness to not have enough practice my leaderships skill in college. Well, if only I could turn back the hands of time.
My point is, go mingle with amazing people, and you’ll find yourself highly motivated. I am motivated right now, and I will try to focus my life.
