How They Did It ?!!

A few nights ago.. i still can't sleep while the clock ticking at 2.00 AM .. after rolling around on my bed.. I decided to turned on the TV.. Good thing i turned it on while the Oprah show still on that early morning..

The next 30 minutes for me is an inspiration... On that 30 minutes Oprah featured two successful young entrepreneur named Gurbaksh Chahal and Tony Hsieh.

Gurbaksh Singh Chahal (born July 17, 1982) is an American entrepreneur, best-selling author, TV personality, motivational speaker, and self made multi-millionaire. By the age of 25, he founded two advertising companies worth $340 million.

That means he's only 2 years older than me. Isn't that a surprise?? and i believe when you heard about his fortune... you'll say that it's because how lucky he is..that he has all the support he need to achieve it.. But i guess make it in America as an Indian young Boy never really mean lucky.. There's always the price that he paid for his fame and fortune he receive nowadays.

Tony Hsieh is the current CEO of online shoe and clothing shop Prior to joining Zappos, Hsieh co-founded and sold the internet advertising network LinkExchange to Microsoft for $265M in 1998. Hsieh graduated from Harvard University with a BA in Computer Science. He is a second-generation Taiwanese American.On July 22, 2009 announced the acquisition of in a deal valued at approximately $887.9mm.He is said to have made at least $214 million from the sale not including money made through his former investment firm Venture Frogs. What a fortune!!!! Hahaha yeap.. we see, we read, and we heard their successful story.. But what can we learn from them??

Oprah asked them wisely about how they did it or if there's any secret 'ingredient' on how they did it the first time.

They answer it: " Don't do anything for money.. do what you love .. and the money will follow" and i quote how Tony Hsieh said: " It's better to do what you love for 10 years and didn't get a dime and you end up happier..but ironically the money will comes by it self .. " Oprah definitely agreed with both of them by saying "It's true but people usually don't believe that"

This is such an ingredient that has been a public secret nowadays.. so it's been said by many young successful young people around the world even young entrepreneur from Indonesia at Kick Andy's show describing their life at the same situation..

Do what you love and love what you do (money and successful story will follow)

and one thing for sure don't do everything for money because you will end up making bad decision based on short term judgment as Gurbkash said that night..

I want to have my life that way and i will asked God tonight to help me with the decision..
