I have changed?


I have changed?

The most prominent question pops out from friends, colleagues or even family members. Yes I become very calm, smiley and the most drastic change -- quiet.

Yes I am very quiet and soft spoken now.

Why?

Do I need to have a reason in order to be a better man? Some peoples told me to be the real me, the original me and just simply be the old me. I repudiated.

What’s the benefit of being talkative? Can you list me some instead of gossiping and talk gobbledygook that won’t bring you good ideas and knowledge? Waste of time.

So, now… most of the time I’d spend my time for working, reading and talking about academical stuff. I don’t want to be a dumb that only can talk loud and laugh loud. Rather be quiet and wise.

Now, I don’t scold, I don’t get mad, I don’t whine, I don’t use vulgar, I don’t talk craps and the list goes on.

To those who know me before, do not be surprised of these changes.

I feel good… to be a better man.

  3. Wah, Faisal! A changed man now? Good to hear that! But surely something must have happened that made you decide to change? Something that inspired you perhaps? Anyway, I support anyone who wants to improve himself or herself!

    YES to CHANGE for the better!! : )

  18. Glad to hear bro. Hopefully the status quo kekal lepas sebulan dua nanti. Ha ha.. Malaysia Boleh, So Faisal Boleh!

  19. Danial - Yes, Danial. I think by doing this it gives me space to think properly and clearly about my future and what I'm doing currently.

    BCD - I'm the talkative one but I think this change really help me to grow up. Be more mature and at the same time see opportunity clearly.

    Axim - I got bad habit you know? I like to curse my own race due to the sadness occur when I see "rempit", student fighting and some other stuff that would not bring any good. I would simply say in my heart "Biasa lah Melayu!". I even met my chief clerk and talked to him regarding this matter. It's weird when my own race just like to disobey the rule example: submit the claim after due date. Can you believe a company that has 300 officers and only Chinese submit early? Unbelievable but as usual our own race with typical excuse -- "busy". Guess I have gone too far, off topic ;) But yes, I have changed to be a better man.

    Ann - Well, for me I think I have brought along the positive things but it depends. Some peoples might think that the talkative me is better which I will stand for my points and fight back... being defensive and aggressive. But now I prefer to listen than talk and make my judgment after. Even if someone scold me I will just reply him/her with a smile. Colleagues told me that this is such a drastic change. I feel better :)

    Adila - I feel relief. I feel better. To say alive, half dead maybe? ;)

    Lindosh - Masa merubah kita? Betul juga kalau difikirkan. Atau masa tidak menunggu kita? Oleh itu janganlah leka? Bunyi macam lagu pulak kan? ;)

    Tammy - Thanks Tammy. You are a wonderful friend too. I'm glad that I know you and enjoy reading your daily blog ;)

    Liedz - Yep. I guess you got the point. I should not bother what people are going to say about me as I know who I am and what I am doing :) Exactly!

    Insomniac - Oh! I like this comment of yours so much. Totally agree with what you say. Are you with me? ;)

    Teja - Ya Teja. Setuju dengan apa yang Teja katakan. Jika ia merupakan perubahan yang positif kenapa perlu kita fikir apa orang akan kata kepada kita. Yang penting kita happy dan tahu apa yang terbaik untuk kita. As long as kita buat kerja dengan bersungguh-sungguh, kemas dan cepat sudah memadai. Kebanyakan masa yang digunakan di pejabat untuk berbual kosong di waktu lunch dan di waktu "take 5" digunakan untuk membaca buku-buku. Lebih baik bukan? Mana tahu lepas ni boleh qatam hadith-hadith nabi pula? ;)

    Quachee - Hehe. So, you agree with Foong? Ok, you might be right. One of the reasons is because someone who I treat like my own sister, my own blood betrays me. I stop trusting the rest. I keep thing to me, myself. I choose to change. The whole me. Now, they feel awkward but soon enough they will get used to it ;)

    Wahidah - Thanks ;)

    Ismail - Ya dah sebulan dah pun dan memang akan kekal begini selamanya kot. Insyaallah ;)

  20. Quiet and soft-spoken doesn't mean a better man..

  21. It does not work that way Joseph. When you quiet, you tend to listen more than do the talking. When you listen, you tend to learn more things and work out your brain. Talk is necessary when needed but for the rest of the time, stay silent is the best. You do not argue, do not get mad, do not shout and the list goes on. Which save you from heart attack, being rude, being aggressive and defensive, no hypertension and so on. Don't you think it is good for health and also for your own characteristic? Most people do the talking, in fact most people do not care what others are talking about. End up, miss communication. When you be quiet, you can also spend the talking time for thinking. Don't you think it is good?

    Soft-spoken is good. It shows how polite you are rather than shouting, yelling and use your high tone. People will feel happy with the tone and also at the same time at ease. You will make people around you comfortable. Don't you think? ;)

    Again as I said, it is individual perspective. Maybe I'm not right for you, and you are not right for me. It is based on our perspective. Life is about choices right? ;)

  22. Mana tahu lepas ni boleh qatam hadith-hadith nabi pula
    - sama2 kita doakan yer..Amin... :)

    quiet n soft-spoken tu mmg terbaiklah...
    cakap bila perlu...n Insyaallah xkan tmbul prasaan or apa2 sja yg xelok..kan?

  23. Ye Teja. Mana tahu kan? Doa-doa kan lah ye (even though bertimbun lagi buku-buku yang lain untuk dibaca di atas lantai).

    Berdiam diri tak semestinya mengalah. Berdiam diri tak semestinya bodoh. Berdiam diri adalah jalan terbaik ;)

  24. Hmm I think this is a positive change to u, being defensive doesn't mean we're weak :)

    Love that !

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes Ann being defensive does not mean we are weak but I prefer reverse psychology than defensive. Sometimes when we are being defensive, we are tend to be overreact which will show our unprofessional indirectly. Try reverse psychology and you will understand the feeling ;)

  26. hehehe yeah, eventho we baru berym and sms a couple of times i can notice that you are a quiet person. i don't think there's anything wrong with that it. it's what suits you best. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Now you make me smile Rosie. How could you tell just by smsing and yming with me? If there are books you want to sell especially the one involve magics let me know ;) I don't want to miss the chance anymore and if possible you can text me in case I'm busy at that time and can't spend time online.
