Lessons Learnt From Daddy Daycare The Movie

image

Photo credit: @Entrepreneur Official Facebook Account

It was years when The Daddy Daycare movie was out. Back then I saw the movie as a ‘Family Get Together’ kind-of movie.

Now I am seeing the movie in a different light and from a different prespective. I see Daddy Daycare as a Lesson to be learnt by Newly Established Entrepreneurs (and newly parents who joined the ParentHood Club ;)) Here are some Key Points I learned from the movie:-

1. FEAR
We are so used to the security of having a safety net placed below our feet (receiving salary each month as an employee) in the Wild Wild Jungle (9 to 5 work environment) out there.

We are so confortable in our comfortzone that we are literally afraid of something new or something different, it feels OUT OF THE NORM to us. Thus, we develop :-

1. FEAR of uncertainty
2. FEAR of Failure
3. FEAR of experimenting with something new
4. FEAR of challanges and facing unfamiliar territories
5. FEAR of staring somewhere new

In the movie, Eddie Murphy plays a  character of a Work-ka-holic Father who works endless hours for a Food Manufacturer who manufactures Cereals for Children. He works more than the usual 9 to 5 hours but less time with the loved ones. He is investing his time building a career and professional development for his Home. But a Home that he seldom lives in. He comes home from Work and has to bring work home (talk about Home-Work 😂) and his time at home is focused on Work and paying the bills.

After his department was down-sized than only did he realised that the safety net was pulled right under his feet. Because he invested so much time sewing the safety-net that he did not have time to think of PLAN B. “What if the net no longer exsisted, should I get a parachute?” 😱

2. SEE A NEED, FILL A NEED
Eddie Murphy (in the play) was thinking of ways on how to earn income from home as he had to take care of Home and also take care of his little boy. At this stage, you can see the DNA of an Entrepreneur slowly growing and crashing into each other to spark an Idea. Than the Idea was formed when He was at the park observing mothers who had to take their children to the park. And listening to the sourroundings on how Mothers were looking for a daycare that was within the comfort of the neighbourhood. That Idea soon became a Reality.

3. PASSION
After many ups and downs, many trials and errors, Daddy Daycare was soon growing, from a few kids to 10 kids, then to 12 kids then to 15 kids. The word got around and then they were beating the competition. Daddy Daycare was built on a foundation of Passion. If you have PASSION you can do anything, nothing in your way could stop you. Even if it means having a mean offer to return back to work with a whole new job description, higher pay and being head of department 😇 Yes! Its true, that temption is out there. There are times you might doubt yourself. But if being an Entrepreneur is already in your DNA, already apart of your flesh. Then nothing can change your mind.

If if Eddie Murphy (in the movie) return to work with a new offer. That very first day he knew within himself (betcha he could feel it in his bones) that his heart was being the Founder & CEO of Daddy Daycare. Because he believed in his Mission, Vission and Core Values.

4. VISION
Having a clear picture of what you wanna do, what you wanna be, what your company will be apart of, the foundation of your company all lies within the Vision that you have. Your sub-consious mind is more powerful than you could ever imagine.

5. PLAN
Plan while you are ahead?
Execution is very important and same goes with planning. For the end result that you desire, ensure that you do planning, brainstorming, survey, research and development before rolling the ball.

The ending of the movie is really inspiring. In real world, business and companies around the world go through upa and downs. Its making sure that you have enough passion, determination and motivation to girl from the starting line to the finish line.

Above all, having the right MINDSET and ATTITUDE is also a MAJOR contributor to the development of your company. Your company cannot grow it your are not willing to run that extra mile.

Till we next time.

Maternity Leave : The Holiday to Recovery

Maternity is apart of the journey to Motherhood. As mentioned in my previous post that the practise of traditional act of tummy wrapping or tummy binding is to help mommies to get back into shape and to also take care of the ‘peranakan’  (womb) during the early stages of maternity. Among the other practises such as:

1) Sauna

2) Message of whole body

3) Tummy wrapping \ tummy binding

4) Practise of using socks

5) Rubbing medicated oil onto bottom of the feet and back

6) shower with herbs after 7th day, 14th day and 44 day

and many more. I remember during my maternity leave commenced, I was in search of a complete set so that I did not have to worry on having to survey places and also the prices. And in Asia, they are many packages offered. But I would still need to look elsewhere to get the package that I wanted. Share with us on how you would spend your maternity holiday and which packages would you like to have during your maternity leave? Join our poll Q&A and let us know what are your thoughts.

Eid Mubarak : Then and Now

Selamat Hari Raya Maaf Zahir dan Batin. A blessed Eid Mubarak to all and may you have a blessed Eid.

As much as I am sad that Ramadhan has gone. And praying that I we will see next Ramadhan InsyAllah, ameen ameen Ya Rabb. This year Eid Mubarak I have had the chance to see, experience and feel the different aura and environment of how Eid (Hari Raya as we like to call it here in Brunei) is celebrated outside of Brunei. This year we managed to visit Kota Kinabalu. My husband’s relative is located in Papar and we had the chance to visit the neighbouring country. We witness on how Hari Raya was celebrated there. Despite the different culture and traditions, you can still sense the Hari Raya spirit in the air. With music of hari raya songs blazing in the shopping complexs, hari raya songs of new and old playing back to back on the Radio stations. And meeting old faces of long distance relative makes the heart warm. The food is oh so my…a mixture of sweet, spicy and tangy of different varities of home-cooked meals. What touched me the most the scene of when we returned from KK to return to my husband’s aunt place (as we were staying there overnight). Its was past 12am ish and the streets were dark (literally dark as there is no street lamps) and the brightest house on the very end welcomed us of cheer, children playing fireworks, bright & colorfull festive lights and relatives from each corner of the village welcomed us with such hospitality and kindness. The warmth of the moment melted my heart away as it had brought me to a flashback moment of my childhood in the 90s and how we celebrated Hari Raya.

Back in the 90s
When I was growing up, the joy and cheer of Hari Raya can be felt as the environment was filled with young children visited every home on the street and was invited in for a glass of cold beverages, cookies of all kinds and of course, green packs for each child. The cheer of lighting fireworks during the night, the spirit of spring-cleaning the homes and re-arranging the living rooms for family and friends to get comfortable during their visits. Sights if the males going to mosques to perform their prayers and giving Zakat.

Now in the 21st Century
Now in our Era, many things have changed. There are less visits by the children, as there are all grown-up now. And more into virtual games then fireworks. Huhu. And the tradition of what used to be our joy of walking to visit our neighbours have now slowly faded. But on the other hand the Traditional Family portraits are now made of selfies and wefies, which is hip and kinda fun. Capturing moments that you can store at the palm of your hand and you can see them whenever you like.

Traditional family portraits are now called Selfies or Wefies

Traditional family portraits are now called Selfies or Wefies.

As the ages come and gone. There are much differance of Hari Raya then and now . Apart from aging each year, I feel that some traditions are slowly fading. Hoping that youth will still carry on the true meaning of Eid Mubarak (Hari Raya). That is asking for forgiveness, being thankful that we are still well and alive and not forgetting to give to those who have less.

Here The Deens would like to wish everyone a blessed Eid Mubarak.

To Blog or Not To Blog? Is that a question?

We all have heard the term: “To be or not to be, that is the question”? In this case, to blog or not to blog, that is the question. These few months has been a wild roller coaster. To be honest, I have never found myself in a position where I have hit the backspace button more in my life. At times, I have had trouble writing as if a huge gigantic writer’s block that is stuck to the inside of my skull and working it’s way like a magnetic chip. After a while, I felted that there was something bothering me, coz I was distracted by many thoughts in my head. Then I decided to sit-down and have a little ‘ME’ time and wanted to sought-out the things that has been bothering me. And here is what I found:-

1. FEAR

FEAR is a motivation

A few months back, I have decided to resign from my current workplace as my youngest daughter needs to go for Speech Therapy sessions and Early Development Programs sessions at least 3 (Three) times in a week at the local Child Development Centre. And these sessions will take 1 hour up to 3 hours in a day that will last for the next 6 (six) months. Both my girls were diagnose with Learning Difficulties and Speech Delay, with my youngest she had NASB (Negative Attention Seeking Behaviour) where she could have mild to severe tantrums at times when she felt frustrated if she could not express herself. As a concern parent, I decided to take a leap of faith and handed in my 2 (two) months resignation letter. And time flies by very fast and this month will be my last month titled as a ‘Working’ mum. Only did it hit me when some of my relatives were asking me ‘What am I going to do next’? And it occurred to me that, will my plan to run a full-time online business with a part-time income work for me? What happens if it has gone down the drain? How are we going to find an alternative income to pay the bills, to buy groceries, to buy school necessities for the little ones during back-to-school seasons, to purchase necessities during next Ramadhan and Raya (Eid Mubarak)? There was a voice inside my head that grows louder and louder by each and every day as the days on my calendar count-down. The voice was so loud that the tiny, little whisper of hope was almost gone. Then chills ran down my spine, as I realised that I feared of what the future will be.

2. LEAP OF FAITH

Now that I was able to identify the factors that created the writer’s block inside my head. I admitted to myself that I feared of something that was not certain and that it was all in my head, imagining and envisioning of things that could bring negative impact to me. I told myself and kept repeating to myself that I took ‘A Leap of Faith’ and why should I fear of something that is uncertain, when I have Allah. Only then it hit me. These 4 words meant something to me:-

“A LEAP OF FAITH”   

Leap : to transition / transport one place to another.

Faith: To believe in your faith and that your faith will guide you.

When we believe, truly believe that everything happens for a reason.

Is prescribed upon you [the] fighting while it (is) hateful to you. But perhaps [that] you dislike a thing and it (is) good for you; and perhaps [that] you love a thing and it (is) bad for you. And Allah knows while you (do) not know. Ayat Al-Baqarah, 2:216

I told myself that if I kept on thinking of negative thoughts, my body will take me to that direction. Apa yang kitani fikirkan adalah doa (What we think is apart of our prayers). Think positive, have the right intentions, set a positive mind, plenty of Doas & Prayers, plenty of Usaha (Actions), Istiqamah (Consistency), Tawakal (Trusting in Allah’s Plan) and always and always tanamkan rasa Syukur (Appreciation and Thankfulness)

Motivation.FEAR04

On the other side, Alhamdulilah that I am able to identify the bumps and curves that are affecting my girls development. And I know in my heart that this sacrifice will be an investment for them and their future. Now I end this post with a question:-

“To Blog or Not to Blog” It is a choice. And we all have a choice, a choice to fear or a  choice to identify that fear and do something about it.

Much Love; Sarah@21st Century Sarah
