Learning from Sinology Master Zhai HongSheng 1 Success Formula

There are two very famous modern Sinology and Chinese Management Masters. One from PRC known as Zhai Hong Sheng 翟鸿燊 and one from Taiwan known as Zeng Shi Qiang 曾仕强。 This post is the first in a series from the saying and teaching of Zhai Hong Sheng.  For other posts related to Chinese Management, see Sinology & Chinese Management.


1. The Success Formula

 “成功之道 = 思考力 × 行动力 × 表达力”

Success = Thinking Ability x Execution Ability x Communication Ability

Lessons:
1. The Importance of Communication.
2. The multiplication sign. If any of the factor is 0, then success = 0.
3. So, any great plan without execution is 0 even if the plan is great.
Even if the plan and execution are great, lacking communication will bring the result to zero or worse. People may think that your great plan and execution are against them rather than for their good.
4. We may allow the above factor to take on negative value so that the result could be negative rather than positive such as in the case of bad communication cited in point 3.

2. Wealth is more than Money .... Living is Great Wealth. Joy is wealth too.


其实生活本身就是财富。
从自己乐到与人为乐。
让自己快乐是一种美德。
让别人快乐是一种功德。


Actually, living itself is great wealth.
From self happiness to being happy together with others.
Letting oneself to be happy is a virtue.
Making others happy is the work of virtue.

Hence, be thankful daily when we wake up every morning.... We are alive.

The Bible has a verse for this. Psalm 118:24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Then, figure out how to increase the joy by making others happy too.

There is a very simple way to make people happy ... give them a smile, saying thank you, say sorry etc. It is valuable but cost nothing. Rather, smiling makes you happy too.
