The Inspiring Story of Martin Sng


I would like to salute and congratulate one of my most senior students Martin Sng who attended my Patterns of Excellence (NLP) training 5 years ago. At the time, Martin was bankrupt after he lent alot of money to his friends and stood as guarantor to many of their loans. He is a very nice man who was too obliging. In the end, when his friends could not pay their loans, Martin was left shouldering all the debt. Despite his huge challenges, Martin saved up enough to attend my course. During the program, he set his goal to get discharged from bankruptcy and become a millionaire.

Yesterday, he turned up at my new training centre for my Wealth Academy Introductory Seminar. He was so happy to share with me that he achieved his goal of paying off his debts and being discharged as a bankrupt. He has begun to save alot of money and wants to learn to build his wealth through the stock market. This is why he decided to sign up for my course with his newly saved money. What impresses me about Martin is that at age 64, he is still so passionate to learn and invest in himself. Instead of blaming his friends or blaming his bad luck (which most people do), he chose to take responsibility, upgrade himself and take massive action! Martin, you are truly an inspiration to all Singaporeans

    Thank you both Adam Khoo and Martin Sng.

    Thank you to Adam Khoo for being such a visionary man and strike out when there is not a single soul that trusted the business of helping people. Thank you for taking the risk and set up such a wonderful firm that inspires and motivates people.

    Thank you Martin Sng for showing that it is possible to change the directions of our life with pure determination and perseverance and most importantly for not giving up on life. Thank you for showing such a good example to me and i know that “If adam khoo when he was so young who started entertainment business and Martin Sng who rise from bankruptcy at such age can do it, then me too can do it”.

    Thank you for showing such wisdom to a man who is now at verge of giving up. Thank you for helping a stranger like me from Malaysia. Salute.
