Hi, my name is Wong Chen Dong, I’m a gamer, drummer, blogger and idealist.
This blog is all about things I want to share with the world – the things I like and dislike, love and hate.
I’m not a professional gamer, drummer or blogger.
But I’m an above-average gamer and drummer, and I blog better than anyone I know personally.
You may be wondering what an idealist is.
Well, an idealist is someone who believes that great things can be achieved, often when it doesn’t seem likely to others.
Here’s why I’m an idealist.
Since the day I finished my 2 years’ service in army and started my real-world life, I have had many ideas I believed were achievable.
Others had achieved them.
But none of my family members believed it.
They think I have no talent because of my poor results in my studies.
To them, I’m just a normal child who will amount to nothing.
Of course, they never said this straight to my face, but their actions and the looks on their face betrayed them.
Until today, they still never believed me.
To make matters worse, they withheld their trust from me.
For a long time, I didn’t even know who my parents were or why they didn’t believe in their own child.
But I didn’t hate them. I didn’t like them either, because I have no time to waste on this type of people.
Over the years, I had learned a lot – from writing content to marketing and design to human psychology.
One thing I truly have learned about human beings is that when someone doesn’t like you, they will never like you, no matter what you do.
There’s a saying by the great prince of print, Gary Halbert:
“I Didn’t Worry About Offending the Dogs. Instead, I Concentrated on Selling the Foxes”
So, why should I try to make someone like me when I should be with someone who already likes me?
If my family members don’t believe and trust me, I shouldn’t waste time on them.
Instead, I should believe in myself and use my time to realize my dreams for a better future.
I am someone who believes in ideas realized by someone can be replicated by another person.
It may not be in the same way, but the result will always be the same.
Anyway, no device will bring me back to where I started.
Time is always moving, and so does life.
Before the day I close my eyes and die, I hope this blog will stay on the World Wide Web for as long as I want to believe.
