If You Could Give Your Kids ONLY 3 Pieces of Advice what would they be- by Tien Wong, CEO, Investor – on Pulse


This question was posed as an “Icebreaker” to a YPO Forum meeting a while ago where Tien Wong attended.

Think about it. Of all the DOZENS of great ideas you’d like to give your children, what would be the TOP THREE?

Here are Tien Wong’s:

1. THINK for yourself – To live a fulfilling life, you have to think independently. This is how you can create a world of limitless possibility. Question everything! It’s OK to listen to “conventional wisdom” and advice that people give you, but YOU have to ultimately form your own opinions. This is what the best LEADERS do, whether they are leading a company, a family, or their own lives.

2. Always maintain your INTEGRITY – In the end, you have only 2 things: your memories and your name. And your name and reputation live on. By keeping your promises and doing the RIGHT THING, you will sleep soundly at night and have peace of mind.

3. Find your PASSION and give 100% – Life is very short. You don’t have much time, so make the most of it by doing what you LOVE and giving your ALL. It’s not easy to find your passion. Maybe the search will be painful and long, but you will find it at some point. And the feeling of satisfaction knowing you have given 100% brings tremendous contentment.

Tien Wong’s Forum Brothers all had awesome Advice as well:

Find Yourself. Be True to Yourself.

GIve and Get Love.

Be Present – Take in the Moment.

Be Respectful

Listen Carefully to Advice Along the Way

Bottom line – great advice.
