Just an update for May and June 2016

Been busy for past one month and getting ready to embark my journey with one established insurance agency in Singapore soon. But before that, not forgetting I have to continue spreading kindness around whenever I can, as this is something very meaningful to share. Do support my awareness group Happy People (HERE) and also volunteer at Project Awareness (HERE). 

I think I fall in love with my home cook curry chicken by my mother! The smell is so appetising that it just makes me want to eat as much as possible! Thank to my lovely mother for the wonderful curry chicken. 

Oh, forget to mention that I was featured in June 2016 issue GOLF newspaper with my brother Elson Soh. Thank you to Sister Charlene for writing this wonderful article and Sister Lisa for the great photography and make-up styling. Thank you Flipside Productions and Marketing (HERE) for this branding exercise. 

I also involved in a interview session with the emerging artiste from my company Royal Entertainment. Her name is Yuna Chew and do follow her blog (HERE) and Facebook (周慧玲 Yuna Chew) too! Remember to give her your support by watching and sharing the video around.

Why do people talk about others

Why do people talk about others in their absence?
Why would a person talk about his close friend in a bad way as soon as he leaves?
Why would a person talk about the bad way his friend is treating him in front of everyone but his friend?

We can never make conclusions about someone's intentions before we get to know more about his personality for it will be the reference we are going to use to interpret his behaviour. In this article I will tell you about the reasons people talk about others and tell you how to understand those people even more.

Don't make the mistake of judging a person without knowing more about his beliefs, values and past experiences. If you know the person well then most likely you will be able to pick up the correct reason that is motivating him to talk about others from the ones below:

1) Jealousy: People talk about others when they feel jealous. A person who feels jealous will try to put the one he is talking about down so that he feels good about himself. If the person has really bad intentions then he will talk about the person he is jealous of in a bad way that makes others hate him

2) Inferiority: People talk about others in a bad way in their absence in order to appear better than them. If a person feels inferior to someone then he might talk about him in a bad way in order to appear superior to him in front of others

3) Lack of courage: Some people hate to confront others directly and as a result they prefer to talk about them in their absence after they do something bad to them rather then face them directly. If a person talks in a bad way about someone all the time because he did something bad to him then know that he lacks courage (see How to be brave in life)

4) He Likes the person he is talking about: One of the signs that shows that a person is interested in someone else is talking about him a lot. In such a case the talk will be positive or at least his mood will be positive while talking about that person even if he was saying negative things (see Signs that shows that someone likes you).

5) Weakness: People talk about others in a bad way in their absence when they believe that they can't get their rights back from them. If a large muscular person punched you in the face then you kept talking about him in his absence then know that you are doing so because you believe that you can't knock him down and that you are trying to release this energy of revenge by talking about him

Talking about others is a sign of weakness

As you can see in most cases people who talk about others are the ones who are in the weak position.

Gossiping or talking about others in a bad way in their absence is most cases a sign that shows that you have a certain personal flaw.

If you found yourself gossiping then you must find out the reason behind it and then work on fixing the personal flaw that resulted in this bad habit.

On the other hand if you knew that someone was talking about you in your absence then just send him this article :)

Ever wondered what you want to do when you retire..say 55 years old? Continue working? Or enjoying the sun at the beach every single day?

Many people have no choice but to choose option number 1, which is to continue working. Here's why.

Assuming at age 30 till age 55:
Monthly Salary: $3,000
Monthly Spending: $2,000 (All in expenses including housing loans)
Monthly Savings: $1,000

Yearly you save: $12,000
Over 25 years (55 - 30) you save: $300,000

At age 55, you stop working and your spending remains the same
$300,000 / $2,000 per month = 150 months (12 Years and 6 Months)
Meaning to say at age 67, you have to start working again to maintain your monthly spending of $2,000!

According to World Bank, Singaporean Life Expectancy is up to 82 years old! Which means if we plan to have enough money to retire with $2,000 per month, you have to work till 65. But what if you have unexpected expenses along these years, such as, holiday trips, marriage plans, medical issues, housing, economic downturn, etc etc, how are you going to withstand from all these unexpected stuffs?

The answer is planning the right way as early as possible. If along the way, we have things that would prepare us for such unexpected stuffs, we don't have to worry about any financial issues. If we put our savings in the right area and at the right time, we can have guaranteed monthly income of $2,000 even when we stop working at 55.

End of the day, it doesn't matter how much you earn a month, but how much you spend in a month, and spend in the right way! If you need my service on any insurance products, do feel free to sms/whatsapp me (Jacky Goh)  at +65 9151 9924 for more information.
