An urge to be Someone Significant

Hmm....i was bored one day after dinner.
Feeling on not doing anything productive, i logged into the net as usual....
I was just bored, so for most of the time spent on the net, i was clicking here clicking there....


And guess what i found....

An ex-schoolmate of mine back in my secondary school days (SMKSJ).
She is now a patient of Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (some serious medical problem). Needing a hefty sum of money (USD58,600) to treat herself, she set up a project to raise funds. Project "HEART4HOPE T-shirts" was what she came up with. A project where T-shirts are sold and the earning would go for her operation budget.
For more info (or to support her project): http://www.yvonnefoong.com/archives/2005/11/heart4hope-t-shirts-on-sale/

The way she wrote about her life-saving project was somewhat motivational. Other than that, she has been awarded "Most Outstanding Youth Of The Year 2005 ", and also founder of NF Malaysia.

After witnessing on how someone ordinary can perform such notable actions, i was somewhat amazed by how much an individual can do. Come on, she is just a teen, and she did all that stuff. Probably she didn't did all those all by herself, perhaps she had a lot of supporters, but still, it's amazing to me.....
The way on how she blogged to save her life made me comtemplate on the wonders of internet, links and blogs.

I was there thinking, how did she does all those stuff. Some more, she is younger than me by 1 year leh... I find it hard to believe.. But seeing such a passionate teen being able to do such amazing things, I suddenly had the urge to do something extraordinary. After all, i was my ambition to revolutionise the whole world.

Somehow somehow, i just had a motivation to be somebody...I had to do something. I had to learn something new. I had to change my lifestyle. I had to be more prductive.
Now, this a feeling i've not felt since i left TAR college a year ago.

Perhaps, my unrealistic ambition was clouded by my new surrondings. Or it might just be that i've lost sight of my aim.

I have to maintain this motivation, this burning desire to be someone...
Will Project Kaizen be key i'm searching for??
