Sgcarmart is sold to SPH for $60M in Apr 2013. This is not an accident. It began from a dream. Followed by proper planning and then, excellent execution.
Accompanied by sacrifices, perseverance and hardwork.
Quoted from Mr Vincent Tan, one of the founders, “if one of us had given in to the temptation of a higher pay, then I’m sure the rest would have given up.” He drew a salary of $1,700 then, as opposed to $2,800, which is what an engineering job would have paid.
Many have a dream. And that’s just about all they’ll do, DREAM.
Some create a plan. And then hide that plan in a drawer, shelf or their previous home.
A few executed them. And realized it take too much to fulfill the dream of their life. They threw the white towel when they might be one meter away from their dream.
Only a handful are willing to sacrifice, persevere and work hard. That’s why they are rewarded.
I’ve seen too many given up on their dreams. And I don’t like that.
If you’ve not started, start now.
If you’ve given up, pick up the sword again.
If you’re stuck, look for help.
If you want something, go get it. If you don’t want to get it, maybe you don’t actually want it.
