Many people around the world have triumphed over poverty and tragedy to become #wealthy and successful, but no one has started with as little and achieved as much as Li Ka-shing.
Li was born in 1928 in Chaozhou, Guangdong, China. When he was a young child, he and his family fled to Hong Kong to escape Japanese bombing raids. Not long after, Li was dealt a terrible blow: his father died of tuberculosis. Li was infected with the disease as well, and there were days when he wondered if he would follow his father to the grave.
Fortunately, he recovered; unfortunately, his family was too poor for him to go back to #school . At the age of fourteen, Li went to work in a plastics factory, where he labored sixteen hours a day.
It would have been easy for Li to work mindlessly and give up on having a better life, but he didn’t. He took the opportunity to learn everything he could about the plastics business, and at 22, he opened his own company, Cheung Kong.
At first, Li’s company only made me plastic decorative flowers, but Li didn’t stop #learning . He began investing in real estate, buying up properties all over Hong Kong.
He also acquired an interest in a struggling British trading company, Hutchison Whampoa, and a Canadian energy company, Husky Oil.
Under Li’s shrewd management, all of these companies prospered. The boy who had once made plastic flowers for pennies became a multi-billionaire, and he continued to grow his empire with timely investments in Facebook and Skype.
His current net worth is more than $30 billion, making him the richest person in Asia.
Li enjoys a privileged #lifestyle , but he never stops working, and he’s committed to giving to others.
The Li Ka Shing Foundation has donated more than 1.6 billion to education and other causes. Li gave $690 million to found Shantou University and another 40 million to create a biomedical research facility in the University of California at Berkeley.
At 86 years old, Li Ka-shing is still active, involved with his companies, and #passionate about helping others. He’s never forgotten his dark days of poverty and suffering, but he’s risen above them to make a #good life for himself.

Drop a 💛 if you’ve experienced this👇People can be 21 but their emotional age is 14. People can be 31 but their emotional age is 18. People can be 45 but their emotional age is 30. You get the point. We assume that someone’s physical age, material success and mental abilities equals a high emotional intelligence - but the equation doesn’t work like that at all. Emotional age is somewhat entirely separate based on parenting, trauma and personal growth. A focus on personal growth and self development leads to a higher emotional age. Credit @jayshetty
😯 COMMENT “Agreed!” If you agree on this!?
In my book (Link in bio) you’ll see how I was feeling better than ever just one day out of the blue! I was required to change my life. Almost was something I feared. But I was forced to. Either live or die. I was grateful, I was happy, I was pursuing my dreams. Then in 10 min... That all was gone... but all of that has helped me...
HAVE A NEW MIND WITH A NEW LIFE!
I was driving to the airport yesterday at 4:45am. It was dark and gloomy outside. I plugged in my phone to listen to a motivational video...
👉 As soon as I did the speaker in the video said... “A new house won’t make a new marriage. A new outfit won’t make a new person. And a new mind will make you a NEW Life!”
I thought about that and couldn’t agree more. We think that THINGS will fix us. Things such as materialistic. Like outfits, cars, houses, anything that gives a quick fix. The only thing that will fix us, change our life, and create a new version of ourselves is US. Stop seeking for that one person or for that one day for all that to happen. Because it won’t happen. You have to go make it happen!

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.
– Muhammad Ali

Don’t Try To Control Life
Control Yourself Instead
By Life here we mean the journey itself,the people we meet,the experiences we undergo,situations etc
It always happen with us that till the time everything is going right in our Life we are happy and don’t feel any need to check our thoughts,actions or behaviour but as soon as something happens in contrast to our expectations we try to control the factors which are totally external to us,like why he/she is not behaving according to us,while driving on road(why he/she is not driving fast slow etc)and we start cribbing and start putting rather wasting our energy on the outcome which is not in our control ultimately landing ourself in frustration or negative zone,rather than checking on the situations or people which are not under our control we should check our thoughts because they are very well under our control and rather than cribbing we should ignore and put the attention to something else be it music playing in your car or the weather or the person sitting beside you etc,that way we will move very swiftly from an angry,frustration zone to happy zone.
Also these can be applied to any situation,incident or circumstance in Life.
Life will definitely change big time with these small changes in Life.
Do Ponder On It.
Saw this post on Andy’s story yesterday & I had to share it! Couldn’t relate anymore in my life right now. #selflove
Currently stepping out of my comfort zone changing the way I think & the things I do for the real me. I feel like change won’t happen until you feel it has too & only you’ll be able to determine that. For years I read so many quotes/posts for motivation & nothing clicked. It would go in and right out the other ear. I still catch myself falling back to my old thinking here and there but I’m getting better at catching it and realizing it. I’m still transitioning into the real me but I feel improvement & feel much better inside which is the most important thing. Do the things that make you happy say what you want to say even if it’s not the popular opinion everyone’s different and has their own way of thinking. Not everyone is going to like you and that’s completely fine you probably don’t like them either. But you’ll also have people that feel the same way you do or that are going through the same thing. Long story short you have to love yourself & the way you actually are there’s a reason behind the way you are...you could be hiding the real you but what if that’s why your not where you want to be.
Big props to everyone who doesn’t give a crap about others opinions & is all about doing the things that make them happy! That’s the biggest win in life🏆 #motivation#selfcare#motivationalquotes#lifestyle#lifequotes#gym#fitness#fitnessjourney#motivational#win
Exactly a week ago, I woke up at 4 am with an idea that in my mind was crazy.
I got out of bed and wrote that idea down and a few more that were in my mind.
I have been asked for basic help on how to use social media in your business often. So often that I knew I needed to help in some way but just wasn’t sure how I could help and run my own business at the same time.
So I created a completely FREE FB group for women in business where I will share what I learned over the past 3 years. And the great part is s few friends who do social well said they would help too!
It is SUPER SCARY for me to do this because I am NOT an expert by any means in social media.
But I know there is a need for basic info on how to even start. I always joke and say that I know enough to be dangerous.
So if you are a woman in business and need BASIC help with social media, DM me for details.
Nothing grows in our comfort zone. •
A baby bird can never become the eagle it was meant to be, if it never breaks free from it shell. Even though the shell is designed to protect the baby bird for a season, it will also suffocate it if the bird never hatches.
Don’t suffocate in your comfort zone. •
I work with an amazingly influential group of women. Spread across different locations, we lift each other up, motivate one another, support and care about each other and empower each other. We’re always there to lend a hand, shoulder or advice. I never thought I would get to work with such an awesome team. We all work towards one common goal and that’s motivating each other and the community to be better and change lives. As women let’s lift each other up, support each other and guide one another through life. There’s nothing more uplifting than being all on one team. #motivational#womensupportingwomen#bossbabes#babesinbusiness#themaxchallenge

You smile a lot,
Like the sun rises,
Like the flowers bloom,
Like the clouds float,
Like the waves dance.
Yet your eyes portray pain,
Like the burning sun,
Like the autumn flowers,
Like the lost clouds,
Like the enslaved waves,
As if your life's a story
you no longer wish to live,
As if happiness is a debt
you no longer wish to give,
As if there's noone
who seeks your demons,
As if you are a lost boat
without any seamen.
I know how it feels
to watch the world turn indifferent,
I know you don't heal
by merely pretending to be content,
I know you have been the light
to most of the lovelorn hearts,
I know they have forgotten you
but you still remain an art.
So tell me your story
it's coarseness, it's coldness,
For, light is easy to love,
Show me your darkness.

You need no one to stay afloat. Hold yourself high all the time!
“A person must elevate themself by their own mind, not degrade themself. The mind is the friend of the conditioned soul, and his enemy as well.
For they who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, their very mind will be the greatest enemy.
For one who has conquered the mind, the Supersoul is already reached, for he has attained tranquility. To such a person happiness and distress, heat and cold, honor and dishonor are all the same.”—Bhagavad-Gita || (Acroyoga practitioners on the beach in Malibu)(Nikon D500; ISO400;F5;Shutter150;Length61)
