Every year end, I take time to reflect on everything that has happened over the year. It is a time to assess what has been done, and be excited about what’s to come.

What have we done this year? What achievements have we managed to create? What can we do in the new year? What’s worth recording? What’s worth continuing? What needs tweaking and what needs a revamp, how do we do it?

And so the year end is a season of anticipation. We anticipate that the goals we don’t achieve this year can be achieved next year. We want the new year to be better than this one!

And that’s what motivates me to write my thoughts down every year end.

As an entrepreneur, business person, and CEO—I constantly remind myself to reflect, learn, and improve.

In 2018, Monspace has been founded for 4 years. The number 4 may not be the most auspicious number for Chinese people, but to me it represents hope. This year’s anniversary theme “Persevere and Shine” perfectly sums up our founding belief: persevere.

All of an enterprise’s achievement stems from perseverance. It is the only way to succeed.

4 years ago Monspace was founded amidst a sea of scepticism, and yet we pushed on. Throughout the journey, we learned to crawl, walk, and grow like a baby. We had our fair share of stumbles and trips, but it only made us stronger each time.

In 2018, our perseverance paid off. The company saw rapid expansion into markets such as Vietnam, Singapore, and Algeria; we are now closer than ever to being a global operation.

We didn’t limit ourselves to just one field either. Monspace has tapped into aero food technology, hosted one of Malaysia’s best e-commerce exhibition, hosted the ASEAN Davos Blockchain Conference, and founded CPMall, a lifestyle and shopping platform.

Of course, none of these came easy to us. Each achievement is a testament of our hard work.

As the old saying goes, no pain no gain. If you’re afraid of failing, there’s no way for you to taste success.

I don’t like repeating how difficult it has been, because we all know challenges are part and parcel on the journey to success. So it does not matter what troubles we weathered, only how much we were able to pick ourselves up, learn from our mistakes and move on.

I would like to thank my colleagues. They are my best comrades, and have stood by me through it all. Monspace enjoys its success today not because of me, but because of the entire team. I would like to share this glory with them—thank you for braving through the storm and taking on each adventure with me. Because of you, we have achieved the impossible.

“Persevere and Shine”—may we learn perseverance, practise it, and believe in our limitless potential. Not all hard work gets rewarded, but the lack of hard work dooms us to failure.

In 2018, Monspace has metamorphosed into a full grown, beautiful butterfly. It is ready to spread it wings and fly. 2019, bring on what you can, because we’re ready for anything!

 

岁末回顾似乎已变成我每年年底必做的事情,用文字抚过一年当中留下的痕迹,是一种反思也是一种对新一年的期待。

这一年里,我们做了些什么?留下了什么辉煌的记录?新的一年里,我们可以做些什么呢?什么值得奖励?什么值得延续?什么需要改变,需要大刀阔斧的改革?我们应该如何精进?

于是,岁末回顾就变了期待,期待今年来不及完成的目标能在下一年得以实行,期待新的一年会更好,更有朝气!

这也是我每一年岁末,坚持提笔写下这些文字的动力。

身为创业者、企业人、执行长,我们必须时刻提醒自己要省思、要检讨、要学习、要成长更要前进。

2018年,满星云成立四年了,“4”这个字,对华人而言,似乎不是一个好的数字,但对我而言却是一个代表着希望的数字,正如今年的周年庆主题“坚持无限耀眼世界”,恰好的总结了我们这4年以来从未忘记信念——坚持。

企业所有的成就都是源自于一份坚持,这是成功的唯一方式,别无他法。

4年前,满星云成立,我们在不被看好的情况下,坚持走自己的路,一路上,我们就像每一个新生的婴儿一样,在学爬、学走路的时候跌跌撞撞,却也在每一次跌破膝盖后迅速获得成长。

尤其在2018年,我们的坚持迎来了丰收,我们进军了越南、新加坡、阿尔及利亚,满星云更进一步的迈向全球业务版图了。

我们不固守一方,我们坚持发掘无限潜能,于是我们将业务触角延伸至航天食品科技业、我们主办了马来西亚最具看头的电子商务展、我们主办了东南亚最具规模性的达沃斯区块链论坛、我们成立了业界最受瞩目的休闲购物平台橙宝网。

天下没有白吃的午餐,这一切的成功并非偶然,而是付出了相对的辛劳才换来的甜美果实。

还是那句老话,没有尝试就没有成功,因为你连失败都躲避了,怎么可能有机会尝试成功的滋味?

而我也不想一直强调一路走来到底有多难,因为“苦难”与“挑战”本来就是迈向成功道路上必然要经过的障碍,过程有多难不重要,最重要的是,学习犯错、累积经验、汲取教训然后享受成功。

我特别感谢我的工作伙伴,因为他们是我最佳的战友,他们陪我打过无数的仗,满星云能有今天的成就,并非我一人能完成,我想将这一份荣耀与我的团队分享,谢谢你们愿意与我披荆斩刺,一起与我冒险,与我一起完成了许多不可能的任务!

“坚持无限,耀眼世界”,愿我们懂得坚持,做到坚持,相信自己是有无限可能,努力不一定有所收获,但放弃注定是失败的,放弃了坚持,你的无限可能就是一无所成!

2018年,满星云经历了4年的时光破蛹而出,蜕变成一只艳丽的彩蝶,挥舞羽翼,势如破竹的飞向耀眼的未来,我们蓄势待发,迫不及待迎接2019年的到来!
