Banyan Tree

I think sometimes we are blurred by all these hypes and coolness and profanity of the world. We wanted to be someone that we don't even know. We wanted to stay at some nice hotels that we can't even afford. And fulfilment sometimes came from being like someone that we don't even know. Or from staying at some cool hotels.

What if you become someone that you really want to be and someone with your own purpose?
What if you own that hotel and make changes in the live of people around you?

The thoughts came after watching Ho Kwon Ping, the owner of Banyan Tree, on Bloomberg TV this morning. People might not get what you're doing right now, sometimes you don't even see it. But always remember that you strive towards a larger goal, which only can be seen once it's done. Embrace the process and don't ever doubt to stay on your path.

He says his resilience taught him a lesson: "You never should try to be what you are not. What you have, whatever disadvantages you may have, is what you have and... you have to create something unique out of it."
