When I think of Allien, the first thing came to my mind, were the time he just started his new venture in Shanghai, that every single time we meet, I just listen to him vent and vent and vent.
I never told him this, but I know when you’re fighting in another country on your own, a listener is all you need.
Years down the road, those venting became telling me about his dreams, plans of working on new projects, and excitements of traveling to new places. Until today, I said, “You are doing well!”, he replied humbly without hesitation, “Yes I think so!”
Confidence. It is when you get a praise from your hard work, you take it all in, unapologetically.
[ Work hard in silence, let your success be your noise. ]
