A Poem By Dean Alfange That Really Inspires Me

I was introduced to this poem when I involved in Zhulian business in 2004-2005. Even though my journey with Zhulian has ended, I still use and apply all the knowledge that I’ve gained especially in term of self motivation and marketing techniques.

Please take your time to read and enjoy the poem..

I do not choose to be a common man.
It is my right to be uncommon.
I seek opportunity to develop whatever talents God gave me – not security.
I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me.
I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed.
I refuse to barter incentive for a dole.
I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia.
I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout.
I will never cower before any earthly master nor bend to any threat.
It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act myself, enjoy the benefit of my creations and to face the world boldly and say – ‘This, with God’s help, I have done.’
All this is what it means to be an man.
– Dean Alfange
