Happiness Purpose

Being happy is something that we cannot leave to chance. People who are not opportunity seeking are those people who look for a magic wand to build on their lives. You need a blueprint on how to be happy. You cannot rely on ‘throwing lots’ or reading horoscope to find happiness. Happiness, like opportunity, is all around us. But the only stumbling block to reach that happiness is the human mind. If you can drive it to a certain way of thinking I believe you can reach all happiness.

Have you woke up in the morning and be really be enthusiastic about that the day has arrived. For most of us the answer is a simple ‘no’. We do not have that job that we like to do. It is great to do something that you are passionate about. But in reality, everyone has had stumbled upon something that they are not passionate about.


Most people I have met always felt that they could have done a little bit better. This feeling of regret is actually a ‘mirage’ image created by the mind. Contentment is a better state of mind sometimes.

One problem of the human mind is that it always craves an experience different from one it currently has. The mind wants more and more. It wants something different. But the problem with the mind is that it never gets satisfied until you command it so. Wanting more is one of the problems in economics and it is not the key for success.

The problem of consistency of doing something to reach the so called happiness purpose will have an ill effect if the participant drags all of his resources into that activity. These resources could have been diverted into something else especially to the third party.

If a gambler wins or loses a bet, he still goes on betting. Consistent gambling is a disease of the mind. In any game of chance, the probability of losing is infinity against the one person who wins. The money wasted could have been used to pay the utilities bill. It could have been saved for investment. The antidote is to cultivate contentment. Contentment is more or less true happiness.

If a guy seeks pleasure and happiness by being polygamous will find it a useless pursuit as he could give ample love to his loved ones. He has to find an alternative that is by getting a soulful relationship. He has to make effort to make someone to fall in love with him and maintain that relationship. Contentment will make way for his blissful life.

Contentment is the mirror of happiness. Be contented with what you are doing right now and balance your passion with the job or activity that gives you a pay check

Strike a balance

Have you seen how a performer in the circus who walks on a tightrope? He balances each step and seeks to reach the end of the rope.

A person who really loves to compose music will be making a mistake if he resigns his full time well paid job and getting into music business. He has to make music first during his leisure time and then finds a producer to buy his music. He has to participate in music contest and get known by the crowd. If he resigns the full time job and get into his passion is like throwing a seed on a barren land. There is opportunity in talent but it has to be stepped up at the right time.

You are successful if you have completed an action that you have planned. Happiness to the human mind is to get what it wants. There is no benefit to feel in that manner. Cultivate contentment and strike a balance in your pursuits. That will give you a reasonable happiness.

About Page

Success is the function of the mind itself. The mind which is cloudy will come to a conclusion that success is by luck and timing. The successful person is lucky and that the timing was good. The thinking process in the mind is a pattern thus formed by the person’s experience, values, needs and perceptions.

My History

The year 2004 was a fantastic year for me as I found a way to express my opinion and suggestion online. Blogging has been giving me the opportunity to connect to the world. I became engrossed with blogs and I started to get much information about blogging ardently. The qualities I have had is that I love to write and have read 300 self improvement books! I need to put all that into good use.

My Other Hobby

During my teenage ‘era’ my only hobby is painting. I was very much obsessed with it that a day will never pass without finishing at least two paintings. As life became busy I began forgetting my inborn talent. Like writing painting is also a way to communicate to the masses.

My Profession

My professionalism lies in building management. It is a field I had voluntarily aimed for and still love what I do. People say I am a ‘doctor’ of buildings. Well it is a tough job. Basically, I have to handle complaints from tenants, ‘bosses’ and service providers. In this field you have to be like ‘sponge bob’- absorb all the complaints.

Why Proenrichment?

My objective in Proenrichment is to make you a person you want to be. One main benefit of reading my article is definitely original to the core. I truly wish that it is likeable. I will also like to cite to readers some of my thoughts. My first post was written in 2007. My latest post is about Be Number One.

This site is dedicated to helping people to learn to appreciate and tackle the many things that we encounter in our daily lives. I have created a category for readers to browse easily as appended here:

Life gets complicated if it is not sliced up to simple bits for a bite. That is why I have made my category comprehensive as possible. I do not want to cloud you with complexity. Simplicity is my aim.

Success is the product of a beautiful mind. Success is a mind game after all. If you want to be successful in anything you do then mould your mind to get the desired result in life. When the ambit of human mind is reached that will be the greatest felicity of life!

I hope you will like Proenrichment.

Calm Your Mind

The ultimate factor for all success stories can only be cited to one point- creativity. Religion tells us that we are created being. Our continuity lies solely on we being creative enough. Man has learned and created many things that had been useful to him and his counterpart for so many years. From the invention of wheels to the infinite zeal to find new territory in outer space, created man has been proving to be a creative being.

But creativity is not a common good. If creativity based on monetary measure, only two percent of human race are creative. I mean those who have created and reached success. What is the point of creating value to others in the absence of perks and benefits.

Money being the medium of exchange has forced us to be a little or very selfish. The reason I wanted to be a part time blogger is that I do not want to expect an immediate gratification for my cause here. I have found a beautiful world called the blogosphere or blogalaxy. All I wanted to be just your minute partner in your long road to success. I want your success as well as mine. But you have to come first before me otherwise my work here will not be genuine. It will be most of the time for monetary gains. That is why I stay employed as a building manager. Only God does not expect anything from creation.

Scientist had found a hormone generated by the brain called Oxytocin. Once the brain produce this chemical we do not shy communicating to others and become very generous. One important side effects of this chemical is that we actually become very creative beings.

It has been experimented with patients with frontotemporal dementia – which is a rare form of dementia selectively damages the temporal and frontal lobes, primarily in the brain’s left hemisphere- that they actually learn new things once they were not be able to do before the disease. The affected people somehow became very talented in artistic works like painting, music and writing poems. They became very creative, in other words.

Left hemisphere of the brain is responsible for most aspects of communication, hearing, written and body language. Right Hemisphere processes images, melodies, modulation, complex patterns such as faces as well as the body’s spatial orientation.

We are coming to an understanding why some people are creative and most are not. Is creativity only for the ‘intellectuals’ or the ‘genius’? From the above discovery I think it is not. When we give a ‘respite’ to our routine works the brain can somehow tap into the power of the mind itself.

Google Code

Google Code
Google code at last broken - I think so. Why I am saying this is that when I started my previous blog here I was very new to this cyber interaction. Reaching to the top in this cyber race is the priority in the mind of most bloggers. I will not say that it is not ethical to have such a goal as we are all interlocked in the system of trade. We need penny and popularity. But successful people who have achieved far beyond any commoner have something in common.

Everybody wants to know the magical key to success. Everyone wants to try. Everyone wants to give that best shot. In the context of the blogosphere, every blogger wants his or her weblog to come as second to none.

Hyper Text Mark Up Language or html for short was devised by a British Scientist named Tim Berners Lee in the late 1980’s while he was working at the Particle Physics laboratory in Cern, Switzerland. The simplicity of html led it to become very popular. Tim Berners Lee made the world ‘flatter’ and opened the floodgate of the communication era. The world salutes Mr Tim Berners Lee for his stupendous discovery of the century!

The idea behind networking is all about sharing information. The basis for success in the blogosphere is to add more and more contents. That is for sure. Content has to be the king.


Passion can be illustrated with this scenario. A person who gets hungry will eat. A person who gets thirsty will reach for the glass of water. But the natural call of the body chemistry to eat and drink is only short-lived. You cannot go on eating and drinking. After the meal and drink the hunger and thirst subside. You can go on thirsty and hungry for days. But a person deprived of oxygen, will die. This is what passion is about.

Be passionate about your blog. I am sure all those who had started a blog have some kind of passion about weblog. If you cannot see your blog comes to the page rank you desire do not get discouraged. Just pour your passion out. Add your contents regularly with your passion juice.

To date I have changed my blog template at least thrice. I do not get anything by the frequent changes. I am doing this solely is because I want readers who visit my blog to be inspired about the design. I just want to give the best of what I have. Passion is pushing me to reach the optimum.


Before you start your blog, you have to think about a plan. Write out a theme for your blog. If your passion is about photography and you want to create a blog on photography you need to ask a right question:

Who is going to visit my blog?

– It can be someone who wants to learn about photography or
– It can be someone who wants to know the history of lens or
– It can be someone who wants to copy some scenic panoramic pictures or
– It can be someone who wants to buy a camera

Choose a title for your blog. This will be your second step. This will make you very confident in drawing out a theme. Theme drafting is vital for beginners. You have write out a theme even before you post that first article. If your title is ‘photography for beginners’ then you are defining your target visitors- new birds for photography. Title for your blog will also help you to be clear and explicit in your article writing.

A theme is like a story and story telling is much needed to stand out from the crowd.


Bloggers are at the mercy of Google page rank. Google has a fantastic system of tracking which website has the most original contents. It is by this basis Google set out a page rank for a particular blog. I think it is the most logical system.

The purpose of blogging is to bring individualistic creation and sharing of ideas and knowledge. Copying other works is greatly discouraged in blogging. Google look out for honesty in bloggers.

If there is a few hundred thousand blogs which talks about photography, you need to compete with them differently. Just create a niche in photography and write about it emphatically with your opinion. You need to find out what is the difficult part of photography and giving your own opinions and solutions. By this you are actually forming a zone which only few ‘experts’ can join in.

I am a full time building manager. It is the most difficult job on earth. The fact is that everyone can find a job in this kind of line even during a recession. But the fact that I have had been going through this for the past 20 years is because I love my job and I withstand frustration. I withstand negative feedbacks. I also give the most desired solution to every problem. Do you think people will want to join in this kind of line full of frustration?

Create a niche which is a difficult one and stay out from competition on the basis of honesty.


Original contents can capture the Google ‘spiders’ but if a blogger shows care in his works for readers he will be loved by them. The fact that the web language has improved from mere text message to cater for video display, most blogs I see that there isn’t much care given to the visitors.

If there is heaven created by God I think the place is for giving utmost care for all good humans. In the movie ‘The Fugitive’, Dr Richard Kimble (role played by Mr Harrison Ford) becomes fugitive when he escapes on the way to the prison to serve a death sentence by lethal injection as he was convicted of killing his wife. In one of the scene, Dr Kimble holding United States Marshall Samuel Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) at gunpoint pleading that he was innocent. When Gerard replied ‘I don’t care’ Dr Kimble escapes again from injustice by leaping down the spillway of a large dam into the river below.

People need to be cared for. Likewise, if you have the sole objective of caring for your visitors who visit your blog show them that you care. You can show them by the following suggestions:

- Write out a welcome message
- Install a time counter in your blog
- Install a soft sentimental background music
- Install inspirational messages
- Allow them to email you for personal coaching
- Introduce them to your other favourite blogs in the category of food, clothing, shelter, travel etc
- If you can think of any write out here

If a blogger shows some care to visitors by integrating value in a blog then there is a far better chance to attract traffic.

Will Power

When I write my first blog I discovered something about how long a blogger has to wait until the blog hits page rank one upon 10. As Google spiders crawl out to millions of blogs in the blog galaxy or blogalaxy the one it favourites will have the most original contents. Why I am saying this is through experience.

When I hit my articles to about 40 or more post my page rank becomes 1/10. In other words, the will power of a blogger should be stretched until he hits 46 to 50 posts. In my earlier blog I post almost regularly. You can post 3 blogs for a week and it has to be regular. When a blogger does this, Google spiders are most willing to capture your blog and rank it accordingly.

Blogging is a marathon game. In a marathon you just need to keep the momentum of your speed and continue with the race. If you do this you will reach the finishing line. After you have reached that 50 original post, rank your blog here to see where it stands. To all the bloggers I wish you the best!

Are You Rich Dad?

What is the definition of being rich? In my earlier post titled ‘who is the richest in the world?’ I have explored very emotionally on the definition of being wealthy in monetary terms. But if we focus on others’ economic well being, we often fail to focus on our financial standing. What is our financial status at this point in time? Have you ever asked yourself this critical question? There can be only two reasons for not asking such a question.

Extreme contentment not only makes your mind sit in the comfort zone but it is the stumbling block to any success. The second factor can be the fear of reaching a plan or goal. There is nothing wrong to count your blessings but at the same time you need to check whether it is the ‘devil in disguise’.

If you had planned to reach you goal, you have face it fearlessly. If you can gauge your contention and be bold enough to take the necessary steps as planned, success will knock your several doors.

If your son ask you this question – “Dad are you rich?”- What can be your answer to him? Before you answer or ponder you need to know something about income and liability.


If you have large amount of cash – you are definitely rich. Dad “A” earning a monthly income of $25,000 for his family of five (including him) is definitely richer than Dad “B” who earns only $2,500 per month other things remaining the same.

But then money is not earned for the sake of earning. It has to be spent on food, clothing, shelter, health and personal care. If Dad “A” spent ninety percentage of his income then he is actually poorer than Dad “B”. This is common sense.

In other words your earnings do not make you a rich or poor dad. But your expenditure does. If you can control your expenses, you come out rich.


In Singapore, you can become rich if you can go into oil or property business. A house is an asset. If a property brings income then it is an asset. If cash is used to pay for debt servicing I think it is wise to sell off the property. If you are holding onto the property hoping it will fetch a good price in the future then the property is an investment.

If you want to invest in gold or stocks be prepared to take risk as the market can be volatile.

Dad Are You Rich?

The answer is very simple. If the monthly cash inflow exceeds the expenditure, he is a rich dad. Expenditure can be divided further into essentials and non-essentials. Essentials are food, clothing and shelter and a little entertainment. Examples of non-essentials are as follows:

getting a hand phone for your son

buying gold or diamond for your wife

purchasing an inexpensive gift for a rich boss

chatting with cyber friends unnecessarily(wasting electricity)

paying the outstanding property loan by cash

eating out

watching television

taking frequent baths

making friends by entertainment

using of credit card when you can pay by cash – interest payment

driving a car in Singapore

The urge of getting everything we wanted is the root of all causes of financial troubles. Living within your means will actually place you in placid mind. A peaceful mind is needed for enriching your lives.

The definition of being rich is how well you apportion your income into expenditure and savings or investment. In expenses exceeds income then you are poor!

Lesson On Value

I cannot forget the 12 of July 2008. Not that it was my junior’s birthday but I learnt a lesson on value.

Last Saturday, after much persuasion from my junior I decided to get a hand phone for him at the Starhub outlet in Plaza Singapore. Well starhub is one of the three biggest mobile companies in Singapore.

As expected there was a large crowd and we finally decided to get a LG model KU990. We got the waiting ‘ticket’ number and we found out that we are behind 130 customers!

We waited for our turn for an hour. It went on to two hour. At that moment, I was telling to my son “We want to buy this phone and it is not cheap but we have to wait in a queue for a long time to get it…”.Wow!! The hand phone gives a magnetic value to people like my son.

What value you can give to customers is the best thing you can learn from business pundits. The innate value a hand phone can give to customers is the ease of communication with others. You can make a call to a friend who is miles away from where you are. You can make short messages with it. You can email with it. You can take a great picture with a 5 mega pixel LG KU990 phone. You can listen to music via Mp3. The ‘values’ has been integrated in that small piece of gadget.

No matter what you are in right now, if you can only if you can integrate values in anything you do, you come out as a winner. Integrated values in a good or service will have a favourable impact on its demand- you simply create demand.

Another example of integrated values is the new concept in building. It was announced that Dubai is going to build a revolutionary building whereby each storey and apartment units rotate with different speed creating a
‘twirling’ skyscraper. By this residents can have different scenic views all the time.

Bringing out values is going to be the new ‘religion’ of the human race. It is not how much you can give value to others but how much you can integrate intensively. The only obstacle to integrated values is again how customers accept them.

Game For The Creative Mind

Games can be structured activity or semi structured activity apparently started for enjoyment. Gladiators who fought in the arena for the mere pleasure and entertainment of spectators during the Roman Empire. Most sports now are carried out for monetary pursuits. The game of soccer is one example. Virtual games have its innate simulated ill effects to the human mind. Addiction to a game can be disastrous to human living as most of the time is spent on playing the game itself. Betting and gambling are ‘bad’ branches of any game. Used sparingly any game can be a blessing too.


I can still recall my favourite game when I was 4 years old. I love to build castle on wooden blocks. This building block consists of wooden parts of a castle model and the graphic picture of the final castle. All I had to do is to match those things in the picture with my ready made parts to build the entire castle.

The above building block may help a child in the following:

Improves hand-eye coordination
Develops shape/size recognition and matching ability
Develops logical thinking – which part to place first
Develops perseverance attitude – if the large block is placed successfully

Choose a game which encourages simple creation and encourages an easy solution.


The fuel for the human mind is being creative. Creativity usually precedes a solution.

Choose a game which has the objective of creation and will not distress your mind. Scrabble is a fantastic game of building vocabulary. Language helps to build oratorical ability which is one of the factors for a communication. Better communication influences leadership qualities.

Word puzzle has restrictions in a solution. You have to form the exact word. But the game of scrabble has letters for the formation of couple of words.


The ultimate process for thinking is finding a solution. The human mind navigates in search for a solution.

The rubix cube not only causes stress on the user but it is not the ‘fuel’ for the creative mind. It helps you speed up your thinking process but it will not help you to be a better thinker. What is the point if you travel from point A to B if in the first place those points have an innate obsoletism?

The game of chess also falls into this category.

What I am trying to say?

The human mind needs a solution. Finding a solution in reality is an easy game. A solution will be complete if there is an avenue for creativity. A creative solution is a valuable input for human living. Creative solution for a problem is much needed currently.

5 Factors For Successful Blogging

If you are new to blogging, you have landed on the appropriate site. Every blog that is born at this point of time will most probably die a premature death. This is because the blogger has not mastered certain concepts about online business. If you going to be a serious blogger you have to know these 5 factors before even you write your first post.

Marathon Race

Blogging is a long term ‘investment’. Spending hours away on the computer just to get your blogging ‘right’ means wasted time to many bloggers who think that it is a 100 meters race. It is not. Blogging is a marathon competition.

I started blogging sometime in 2007. It has almost been a year. In my opinion it is too short a period of making your blog popular. If you are full time blogger you need to get at least 6 years to see some decent figures on your statistics.

If you happen to be a full time blogger, it is possible to post at least 4 articles in a week. In a year you will have at least a satisfactory 200 pages. In 5 years time you will have a wonderful 1000 pages of articles.

If you happen to browse a popular site, it usually has at least 1000 pages. Blogging is all about content. Content building takes time. If you are keen in blogging change your mindset of making quick bucks in a shorter period. You are in the marathon race. The first step to success in blogging is to remove a false belief that blogging is an easy competition.

Doing A Job is Easy

If you happen to read articles persuading you to jump in the bandwagon of blogging by replacing your full time job, think again. Doing a full time job is a lot easier than blogging. If you are in a job, I am sure you must have trained for the task. You might have a degree or a special skill to do that particular job. You know your job.

But blogging is an entirely new field. You need to have at least a 10 years ‘touch’ of the blogging arena before you quit that ‘boring’ job. Do it leisurely. If you really want to become a full time blogger, jump in after 10 years. Be a tortoise and win the race!

Aim To build content

Why do you need to build traffic? If a shop without customers is like a girl without a company. A shop without customers will get wind up soon. But in order to attract customers, the shop has to advertise. But the first step to open any business is to ask what business I shall open in the first place?

Most bloggers fade away to oblivion is because they do not know what to ‘sell’ in the internet world. This is because they do not know their strengths. They just read a few articles on the internet and start jumping in before clearly deciding on their contents. Be a Pro in your own way.

You can sell medicine online. You can sell flowers. You can sell your poetic talents. Or you can just telling people how to become successful in their lives.

The important thing in any business is to define your goals. Define what you want to service your visitors who click to your site?

And then you have to give them good value for their visit. The priority for the next 5 years is to build your content. There are some websites where you can buy ‘contents’. But visitors know where you coming from. Write out your own contents. Be original.

Building your original content is adding value to your visitors. Like what I am doing right now. Originality emanates from your passion.


Inertia is the factor for most blogs to end up losing the competition. I have many email enquiries about what is that makes a blogger to take action constantly. The similitude of a blogger who takes action consistently is someone who had a strong belief that he will reach his goal one fine day. Action and belief will materialise any goals. Absence of either factor is actually a wishful thinking or a weak prayer.

The road between an action and a goal has to be drawn. Every road drawn clearly will give strength to your belief. If you belief in God, the many spiritual paths you take to reach the Omnipresence will actually makes your belief in God stronger. There is no point in believing God is Love and neglect those who ask. Contradiction in your action is a virus to your belief and ultimately your goal. Read belief bubble 1 and 2 for a basic understanding on beliefs.

A blogger has to constantly take action upon his blog. He has to consciously put effort to integrate values to his blog. You can read my blogging challenges by clicking the site map to get some tips.


Statistics show that the first week of any movie will have the highest percentage of audience. If the percentage stays constant the movie becomes a success. The first week crowd is actually pulled by advertisement. The movie WaterWorld has the most hits in the beginning but the crowd fades away because of its shoddy production. It is an expensive production of about US$150 million. The advertisement cost was budgeted in but its ‘content’ is forgettable. Bloggers can advertise their blogs in many ways.

Name card – comes handy when you meet up with friends. If you attend any business meeting or a party have your name card presented and you can have your blog address written on the name card. This is the cheapest way you can advertise.

Sending out emails – is also a fun way to advertise your site to your friends. But it has to be done very non- routinely. Otherwise, your email can be meant to be ‘spammy’.

Talking about your blog – is also a non committal way to spread the news of your blog to others.
