Wishing Everyone a Successful & Prosperous 2008… Commit Your Goals Now!

A very happy new year to all of you who have been reading my blog since it went online more than a year ago! Thank you for all your wonderful emails and comments. It makes me really happy to have this unique privilege to make a difference in the lives of so many people all around the world.

I am really sorry that I have not been posting as much as I should. I just finished my usual ‘End of the Year’ tour where I trained about 950 students in the ‘I Am Gifted, So Are You’ and Superkids programs in Singapore, Malaysia, Jakarta and Surabaya ( Indonesia). At the same, time, I trained about 430 teachers in my ‘Transformational Teaching’ workshop, not to mention another 230 in my Wealth Academy program. I have been on the stage for about 74 days in a row, so I just managed to catch my breath to start blogging again.

For those of you who are wondering when my latest book ‘ Nurturing the Winner & Genius in Your Child’ is going to be launched (I set the initial date as Nov 2007), It will hit bookshelves in the second week of Jan 2008. I actually finished writing the book in Nov 07, it’s just that the designing, proof reading and editing as taken longer than budgeted.

At the beginning of the year, it is the time to declare our specific goals that we must commit to achieve. So, I am going to start the ball rolling and declare my goals for 2008…

Goal 1: To write three more books this year, The titles are, ‘ Secrets of Building Million Dollar Businesses’ (i am currently writing this now), ‘ Secrets of Happy & Successful Teens’ and ‘Unleash Your Power!’ This will bring my total books written to ’10’!

Goal 2: To set up the Adam Khoo Workshop with the mission to build schools in Cambodia/ Vietnam. AKEF will also continue to expand our current work in giving away Bursaries and scholarships to needy Singaporeans.

Goal 3: To uplift and inspire every single person that I have the privilege of meeting whether in my seminars or on the streets

Goal 4: To train and change the lives of 26,000 people this year. In 2007, we trained just over 18,000+ through all our programs in three countries.

Goal 5: To ensure than 70% of my diet will be fresh vegetables and fruits and to spend 30 mins every day on aerobic activity to give me the power and energy to achieve my mission.

At the same time, here are the upcoming seminars/ events in 2008 that I will be Leading PERSONALLY

1) Wealth Academy (4 times in Singapore, 1x Malaysia, 1x Jakarta)
2) Patterns of Excellence (3 times in Singapore, 1 x Jakarta)
3) Transformational Teaching (2 times in Singapore, 1 x Malaysia, 1x Jakarta)
4) Secrets of Highly Effective Parents ( 2 times in Singapore, 1 x Malaysia, 1 x Jakarta)
5) I Am Gifted, So Are You! for teens ( 8 times in Singapore, 4 x Malaysia, 5 x Jakarta, 1 x Surabaya)
6) Superkids Camp (for Primary School) (8 times in Singapore, 4 x Malaysia, 5 x Jakarta)
7) Entrepreneurs Training (1 time in Singapore)- Only for entrepreneurs who already OWN a business and want to bring their massively increase their business profits

If you are interested in these programs, you can call my offices at 65-62740105 (I Am Gifted! Singapore), (603)79567879 (malaysia) and (62)215723315 (Indonesia).

Every year, I write my goals down and put myself on the line by declaring them to everyone I meet. I believe that it is only when we make our goals a must will be take action to achieve what we have set.

So, I would like to challenge you to do the same. Write down all the goals you must achieve in the area of your health, career/business, finances and family. Be sure to make it specific and declare it to everyone you know. You can also post your goals on my BLOG through the comments tab and make a commitment to the thousands of people who will read this BLOG.

Make a Big Difference in Your Life and the Lives of All Those You Care About in 2008!

    Its so right & stimulating & so like you (as you had been an excellent biz entrepreneur!) to set all these goals, may you achieve all these!!

    Its so heartening to see that you volunteer to help pple even from other countries!! Its so encouraging, sometimes I feel sad that though Singaporeans are so generous willing to hlep other countries but I still see so many needy Singaporeans whom nobody helped (it might be they do not know where to get help or nobody knows about these people) If Singaporeans are going to hlep people why not first in Singapore (you could see people begging or selling tissue or poor needy households and yet you hear of peopel going to other countries to help!, its good but I still feel that they should first help in Singapore to stamp out poverty if they really wants to help the needy!!)

    Thanks for sharing with us and it will definitely teaches us how to go about achieving our goal.

    Wishing you all the success and goals achieved!!

    I just wanted to thank you for so much inspiring thoughts and strategies. You are the only Newsletter I look forward to reading. I am spending more focus this year on Joint Ventures and found a source for Joint Ventures on Steroids at http://www.Area51Marketings.com

    I am sure in 2008 the more I assist others, the more I will be blessed.

  9. Brandan Ahmed on January 10th, 2008

    Hi Adam. I have not attended any of your workshops or bought any of your books…YET!

    I am 33 years old but need to turn things around in 2008.

    But you have no idea of how I look forward to your newsletters for inspiration. But as you say, I need to start doing even if it means duplicating success which is the shortest path.

    My goal is to get out of debt by the end of the year and have my name cleared from credit bureau.

    The other is to start my financial markets course by correspondence which with your constant help and inspiration is not impossible. I’m not student material but if you’re gifted, then so can I be, right.

    Thank you for just making me take stock of my life and giving me the strength to take corrective measures.

    My goal for 08 is to get 10,000 subscribers by the end of the year!

    Hi Adam,

    I have never attended your courses. I have read the book “I am gifted so are you” I tried reading another one of your books but never got down to finishing it.

    I have sent my child into your Superkids program even though she was 9 years old. First I saw 10% dipped in her results, I called to ask for a reprogram but no one got back to me. Anyway she is now much better since her days there, she’s gone more positive and she takes control of her studies now. I though back and I thank you and your coaches for changing the attitude of my child anyway. Sending her there was one of the best move I made.

    About me, I have been procastinating to do my degree for the longest time. I feel under appreciated and even felt that I haven’t actually got a foothold in my position. So this year I have made a decision to do the following:

    1) Finish reading your book
    2) Re-start my education path
    3) Get a grip with my job, and ensure I contribute to successful projects in the compnay
    4) Loose the extra kilos by exercising more
    5) Attend one of your seminars
    6) Ensure my kids do great with their grades

    Such a long list but I believe I can achieve them all.

    Wish me luck!

    Well , Adam
    I have toned up my scalability in my teaching career as one of my goals. So far , I have got my colleagues excited in using Buzan’s mindmapping
    when we were starting o Factual Description for English. My pupils’ exhibited thier mindmaps in class, the VP came by and some of their samples were used by other teachers to show to their students.
    I am in charge of the Reading program in my school and I will be coming up with exciting plans to promote reading of classics starting with John Steinbeck’s books.
    My school will be starting PRIME in June and lots of money will be needed. God has impressed on me to start giving 1K, followed by 2K and then 3K…..until 10K towards the end of the year. I have achieved the first two target. With God’s help and opening of doors, I believe I can achieve the target.

    Hello Adam,

    My name is Lan Ing.
    I’m a subscriber of your newsletter and I live in Indonesia.

    I need your advice.
    I want to become a freelance copywriter but all of my working experience has been in IT. I’ve been doing technical writing since early last year because I want to learn how to write well before I learn about copywriting.

    This year, I’m planning to apply for a new job in Tech.Writing so I could earn better salary in order to prepare for my changing career. Do you think this is a good idea ? Is it better for me to learn about copywriting directly ?
    I need to save more before I could quit my job.

    Thanks for reading my message 🙂

    warm rgds,
    Lan Ing
