What do you truly believe in?

There was once a significant other asked me a question after I complained about how the homeless people in my country are not well taken care of. She asked me what drove my sense of sympathy towards them. And I answered, “Because they deserve a second chance. Everybody does.” A lot may argue that some of these unfortunate people might have squandered their chances away. Many might have given them that second chance but they just didn’t appreciate and take advantage of that opportunity. Have you ever given somebody a second chance and have it just throw right back at your face? I have. And the feeling was miserable because the very reason why you would give somebody a second chance is because you truly care for them or maybe you have some altruistic trait in you, which I think is an excellent thing to have. If you are one of those few, you might remain an unsung hero for a while but trust me, somebody is going to notice your efforts.

So what’s my point? I’m not here to tell you that you should go around giving people second chances or inviting homeless people back to your home. You see, a few years ago, I gave somebody a second chance. This person was the most important person in my life. He was there whenever I went through hardship. He was also there went I experienced that limited amount of success that I had. He was there when I fell in love. And guess what, he was also there when I fell OUT of love!. This person is my best friend and I spend every single day with him, even up to this very day. The person I’m talking about is, of course, myself.

I gave myself a second chance because I realized how much I’ve letting myself down. I was extremely disappointed at how I would complain to myself for not trying hard enough. I would hate myself for not being smart enough. I was devastated that I wasn’t enrolled into one of the local government universities in my country. Instead, I went to a private institution which had the social dogma that would deem us as second class as compared to those in the elite local universities, who were destined for a brighter career.

All that negativity stopped when I decided to give myself a second chance. I started to develop the belief that everybody who was not medical handicapped had the same starting point. All of us were born with a body which had good limbs and a good brain. With that in mind, everybody should be able to achieve up to the same level of success. The reason for that not coming through is because we all embarked on different paths, and that explains the big divide between the standards of students in all areas of academics. Now, I think it’s absolutely useless talking about what happened to each of us, including me, in the past because we can always change the path that we take. It might be extremely difficult because of inertia but if you just give your second chance, you will definitely be able to pull yourself onto the track which the elites are taking. No matter where we are right now, the place that we study or reside in has given us a second chance as it is. There are opportunities everywhere and if we just give ourselves that second chance, we are going to see them and we will grab them.

And that was why Quickienomics was started. It started because I have a strong and firm belief that everybody started from the same point. We can all develop ourselves into the successful person we want to be. With Quickienomics, I could share what I knew about my field of study so that everybody would have that second chance to work towards what they want, be it either passing your exams or achieving that desirable grade you want. My partner and I truly believe that there is potential in everybody and that potential is just waiting to be unleashed.

One way or another, Quickienomics aims to inspire you to develop that potential. We truly believe that if you want something bad enough, you will give yourself that second, third, fourth chance to achieve it because it’s not the end. We still have a long journey ahead of us for us to blaze. Quickienomics has a mission to be platform for students to obtain personal and professional development either through affiliate workshops, courses or networking sessions. I am fortunate to have tthis opportunity to build this website and I want to share opportunities with all my valued visitors, subscribers and supporters.

I am a student from the Singapore Institute of Management and we believe that this university has got tons of hidden talents and potential. I would certainly love to meet people like you and work towards the top of the ladder with you.

I would like to thank all the students who have used my website for your revision. I know that the journey has been tough and I salute you for your efforts and perseverance. No matter where you are in the world right now, I want you to know that this website wouldn’t have carried on without you being so supportive. I sincerely cannot thank you enough. I think I only know a handful of you personally so if you would like to, please drop by and say hi on my comments box below.

With that, I would like to humbly ask for your continuous support to stay with me as a subscriber even after you have completed your studies or find this website no longer useful to you because we have more in store for you in the future. You have given me this opportunity to be the founder of this website so let me give back to you in the form of opportunities for personal and professional development.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. I wish you all the best and we’ll see each other at the top!



PS: Oh ya. By the way, this video has kept me going strong for the past few weeks. I hope the dialogue in this video strikes that fire in you to fight hard towards your goals.

    Excellent write up, I appreciate every detail and effort that you’ve contributed to this website. You brought live to this module, and I believe I’m not the only one who benefited from this.

    I sincerely thank you for that.

    Quickienomics is truly inspiring. Somehow I ended up watching one of your tutorial video and it honestly caught my attention. Also gave me the motivation to get started with intro to econs when I hated this unit so much so that I wanted to flop it as I understood nothing. This had been a very good platform to build up my foundation for intro to econs. I hope you continue to build up this site in terms of other econs units, doing tutorials, posing challenging questions and keep up the creativity when you present your slides. The colours and drawings together with the economics concept fascinated me. A big THANK YOU to Quickienomics and you! Without you, Quickienomics is impossible. You will surely make it big one day!

    I already expressed in person to you how grateful I am to you for doing this and I am convinced you have all it take to make it to the top be it with quickenomics or a different project or maybe both. Anyhow I hope you will continue to support us with other subjects as you did it so wonderfully well for economics.
    On top of being a very nice journey watching through your video database and being able to recall any of them at anytime I can truly say you saved my arse for this unit. I went from totally lost to actually quite confident with the syllabus and I think I should pass and maybe even get away with a good grade.

    Thank you gerald 😉

    Hi Quickienomics,

    Thank you so much for your dedication and effort! I think it is very noble of you to do this at your own expense and time, with the simple intention of wanting to help others.

    My friends and I have found the videos extremely useful. You really have the ability to make things simple and logical enough to understand.

    Today, we finally completed our Intro to Econs paper and we want to thank you for playing a huge part in this journey.

    Thank you so much! 🙂
