Something happened last week… that set me in tracks and got me to re-assess myself.
I went out a with a couple of good friends for a karaoke session…. We had a lot of beer and we messed up the lyrics of the songs.
We had a really good time when suddenly… I became breathless and had palpitations.
My vision blurred and I couldn’t hold myself steady. I was freaking my friends out.
It felt like a panic attack… Because I became very nervous and I was sort of disoriented.
And I really thought that I was going to die.
Perhaps I was just over-reacting, after all I did had a little too much to drink. But then again, I never had such experience before.
My friends chided me to go to the hospital. But I declined. I told them everything was going to be okay and I just needed a rest.
So I sat down, took a gulp of water and started taking deep breaths of air…
I just couldn’t fall asleep that night.
I couldn’t help thinking what would happen to everything and everybody around me if I just suddenly died.
I shivered just by thinking about it. This was the first time I was truly afraid of dying.
It’s kinda ironic because I used to tell people that I have achieved all my goals and now I’m living my dream lifestyle.
So even if I were to drop dead today, I would do so with absolutely no regret.
At that moment, I knew I was wrong… I wasn’t exactly living my life to the fullest.
Yes, I did have a great lifestyle that some of you may relate to.. making new friends, traveling around the world, partying and buying the toys that I want…
But deep down, I felt like I was kinda wasting my life away with all the late nights partying…
My health was failing.
I had the sudden guilt… because I knew I was the main cause of it.
Actually I’ve all along been keeping a secret that I didn’t share with anybody beyond the family and a few close friends.
Well, I didn’t think it was much of a big deal at that time… So I didn’t paid much attention to it anyway.
Seven years ago, while I was doing a routine full-bodied check-up. The doctor then ran the stethoscope along my chest and said that I had a irregular heart beat.
So I was put through to some other tests and the result confirmed that I’m suffering from a heart valve condition called Mitral Valve Prolaspe.
This came as a shock to me, because I was very active at sports at that time. And I never did experienced any kind of symptoms.
The doc says that this is quite a common condition and a few percentage of the people in the world have this condition.
So to put it in layman terms… A normal chambers would open and close each time the heart pumps in a rhythm, propelling oxygen-rich blood into the arteries.
Mitral Valve Prolaspe is a condition when the left and right chambers of the valve does not close properly.
A weak chamber like mine… may collaspe, causing a backflow of blood… which will inevitably result to serious health problem or in worst case – death.
As of now, the doctor say I am still young so he didn’t want to do any drastic operation and put me on medication for the rest of my life… and it’s something that I gotta live with it.
It sure sucks to be me.
It was from then on.. that I told myself that I would accomplish my financial goals by the age of 30, while I still got the energy.
Well I manage to hit most of my target by the time I am 30 and I have been having quite a bit of fun for the last 3 years.
But last night at the Karaoke bar, turned my life around literally.
It seems that I found a new meaning in life.
I realized that there’s so much more to life than partying and enjoying yourself… your health is in fact your true wealth.
If your not serious in taking care of your health. All that hard-earned money is still going to go into the medical bills… eventually.
Yeah, it’s pretty obvious ain’t it?
But I guess, as humans… we often take things for granted and we forget to cherish the things we already have. And yet, we go all out to try to get the things we think it’s important to us… But it really isn’t.
I just wanna throw this out there… So whenever, you feel that you’re over-indulging in yourself. you’ll take a step back and tell yourself… “Slow down, I need to be in good health”…
P.S. The main reason why I am able to achieve most of my financial target is because I have master the skill of Lead Generation.
If you are running any business (internet marketing, network marketing, online business or any home business opportunity), then you need to have leads coming to you everyday.
Once you are able to master that, getting sales and profits everyday will not be an issue anymore
