7 Reasons to Visit Singapore

7 Reasons to Visit Singapore

One town that deserves to be visited over and over again is definitely Singapore. The city is changing so fast that it looks totally like a different place every four years. In other words, even if you visited  Singapore four or five years ago, there is a good reason for you to come back, and experience it all over again.

Singapore is an amazing city, it has a great location, it has a lot to offer, and to top it all, it is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Even flying there is a unique experience since Singapore Changi Airport has been recognized as the best one in the world. Truth be told, there are so many reasons to visit this town, but for me, these are the top 7 reasons why you should travel there.

1. Great nightlife

    Much like in all other major cities, nightlife in Singapore is situated in the city center. If you are interested in having a good time, then Lion City has a lot to offer. For those who love to dance all night long, there is a club called Zouk, and if you are lucky, you’ll be able to witness the performance of some of the best DJs, like David Guetta or the Chemical Brothers.

    In case you are interested in a place with a good view, then you’ll be happy to know that there are a lot of rooftop bars in Singapore, so make sure you visit them. Also, if you enjoy being close to the sea, Marina Bay Sands and Clarke Quay are locations you definitely must visit.

    2. Amazing places to eat

    For those who love to have special meals, and who love to try as many different cuisines as possible, Singapore will fulfill your wishes. Inside Lion City, a true gastronomic adventure awaits. For a copious Italian food buffet, you should visit Basilico. For those who prefer Asian food, Lime is the restaurant you want to visit, and in the event you want Japanese cuisine, pay a visit to a restaurant called Ikoi. Of course, if you are not sure what you want exactly, Carousel is the place for you. It has French, Japanese, Asian and all other kinds of meals, so just pick the one you find the most alluring.

      Singapore is a cultural melting pot; therefore, you’ll fit in perfectly regardless of your cultural background. Everyone is welcome and the economy of Singapore gives you fertile grounds to start your own line of work. So, if want to move out and start a new life, this is probably the best city for you. It is constantly changing its appearance, so the scenery will never get dull. Once you move here, you will never have a desire to leave. It is a place that has one of the freest economies in the world, so your success story is just waiting to happen.

      4. A lot of different sports

      If you are an athletic person and if you love to train, then Singapore will be a dream come true. Anything you want to take up can be found; there’s football, basketball, rugby, swimming, cricket, badminton and cycling. You can also participate in various popular water sports like sailing, scuba diving, waterskiing, or kayaking. You can also try something new and trending like stand-up paddle boarding; another activity that is really good for your health. Since it is such a big and rich city, a lot of major events take place there; Formula 1 for example. Therefore, if you love watching races, this will be real heaven on earth for you.

      5. Inspiring green space

      This town is an absolute paragon when it comes to eco-attractions. There are Botanic Gardens, Gardens by the bay, jungles of Pulau Ubin and of course Singapore’s Zoo. Anyone who is a flora and fauna enthusiast will be pretty hyped to visit all of these amazing places. In other words, if you truly want to go green, go to Singapore.

      6. Galleries

      To get your creative juices flowing and to find new inspiration for your art, make sure to visit the ArtScience Museum and Gillman Barracks. The ArtScience museum is a lotus shaped building with a vast art collection and Gillman Barracks used to be a colonial army base that was transformed into a sanctuary for artistic work. Another important location is National Gallery Singapore, since it features the largest art collection of Southeast Asian artists. It was a big event last year, during the mid-2015 opening, and there was even a festival that lasted for 10 days.

      7. Epic Hotels

        Lastly, in the event that you want to have a luxurious stay in hotels with cutting edge interior design, Singapore will live up to your expectations. You can stay at Sofitel So Singapore, or at a hotel called Wangz. Both of these have received very positive customer feedback, and they both have an incredible service. Another good place is Hotel Jen Orchardgateway; it’s right next to the metro station and only 4km away from the Botanic Gardens and Marina Bay.
        I hope you will go and visit this epic city, fly their amazing airlines and have a great stay in their hotels. Make sure you experience the nightlife of Lion City and try all the delicious food in their restaurants. Visit the monuments and galleries and try out different sports; it is truly an uplifting place, so don’t miss out.

        50 Habits of Highly Successful People You Should Learn

        50 Habits of Highly Successful People You Should Learn

        If you’re like me and really into self-development, you’ve probably read many of the thousands of self-help books out there on the market. But also like me, you probably find all the information a bit overwhelming.

        That’s why I wanted to do the self-less task of taking the most important, life-changing lessons I’ve drawn from these books and condensed them into 50 key points.

        Here’re 50 habits of successful people you should learn:

        1. Believe It to See It

        Our minds tend to focus on what’s happening around us and refuse to see what could happen. Only when you trust in what’s possible and dare to dream big, big things can happen for you.

        2. See Problems as a Wonderful Gift

        While others only see problems and give up, successful people use the problem as a lesson to find improvement in themselves or the task at hand.

        3. Keep Looking for Solutions

        Even if they’re knee-deep in problems, successful people will still put all of their focus on finding solutions.

        4. Remember It’s All About the Journey

        Successful people are conscious and methodical in creating their own success. They don’t sit around doing the bare minimum, hoping success finds them.

        5. Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway

        There’s so much fear on the road to success, but instead of letting that fear control and limit them, successful people do a good job of just forging ahead regardless.

        6. Always Ask Productive Questions

        It’s all about asking the right questions. Successful people make sure they are questions that will elicit information for a more productive, creative and positive mindset moving forward.

        7. Understand the Best Waste of Energy Is Complaining

        Successful people know that choosing to see the negative side of things will only create a useless and unproductive state.

        8. Don’t Play the Blame Game

        Taking responsibility for actions and outcomes is a form of empowerment that you can build your success upon. While the act of blaming others or outside circumstances takes this empowerment away from you.

        9. Maximize Your Strengths

        Not every successful person is simply more talented than the rest, but they do use what they know they’re good at to achieve more successful results.

        10. Be in It to Win It

        Successful people are busy, productive and proactive. Instead of sitting around over-thinking and over-planning a great idea, they just take a step towards it no matter how small.

        11. Know That Success Attracts Success

        People who are successful surround themselves and seek out like-minded people. They understand the importance of being part of a team and forge win-win relationships.

        12. Actually Choose to Be Successful

        Dreaming big is a massive part of being successful even if your dream seems impossible. Ambition is a mindset that needs to be a daily conscious choice.

        13. Visualize, Visualize, Visualize!

        You’ve got to see your success in your mind’s eye even before it comes. Successful people clarify and get that certainty about what they want their reality to look like rather than being mere spectators of life.

        14. Be a One-Off Original

        Successful people look for what’s working and then create a unique spin on it. Imitating only regurgitates other people’s ideas with no originality.

        15. The Perfect Time to Act Is Now

        Waiting for the right time to act is basically procrastination wrapped up in an excuse. Successful people know there’s never a perfect time so they may as well just do it now.

        16. Keep Learning, Keep Growing

        Continuous learning is the key to a successful life. Whether it’s academic, being a student of life or actionable learning, it’s all about expanding your knowledge and personal development.

        17. Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

        Successful people have the knack for finding positive aspects in all people and circumstances no matter what.

        18. Having a Bad Day? Do It Anyway!

        We all have bad moods but it shouldn’t be an excuse to stop everything. Giving into a bad mood just stop-starts your life, slowing success way down.

        19. Sometimes Risky Business Is Needed

        Calculated risks are a must for success. It’s about weighing the pros and cons while moving forward with that element of trust.

        20. Accept Challenge All the Time

        Dealing with problems head-on is a must to be successful. Successful people also face challenges in order to improve themselves.

        21. Make Your Own Luck

        In the mindset of a successful person, there’s no such thing as ‘luck’ or ‘fate’. They take control to actively and consciously create their own best life.

        22. Ignite Your Initiative

        While many people are reactive, successful people are proactive – taking action before they have to.

        23. Be the Master of Your Emotions

        Being effective at managing emotions is key on the road to success. That’s not to say successful people don’t feel like we all do, but they’re just not slaves to their emotions.

        24. Champion in Communication

        Consciously working on effective communication skills gets anyone closer to success.

        25. Plan Your Life Strategically

        Successful people’s lives aren’t a clumsy series of unplanned events and outcomes, they methodically work at turning their plans into a reality.

        26. Become Exceptional at What You Do

        To become exceptional, you typically have to do things that most won’t. To become successful, hard decisions need to be made and acting on them is crucial.

        27. Choose to Live Outside of Your Comfort Zone

        While many people are pleasure junkies and avoid pain and discomfort at all costs, successful people understand the value and benefits of working through the tough stuff that most would avoid.

        28. Live by Core Values

        Successful people firstly identify their core values and what’s important to them, then do their best to live a life that reflects these values.

        29. Realize Money Isn’t Everything

        Money and success are not interchangeable and the most successful people understand this. Putting money on a pedestal and equating it to success is a dangerous mindset to have. Success comes in many forms.

        30. Don’t Get Carried Away

        Successful people understand the importance of discipline and self-control and as a result they are happy to take the road less travelled.

        31. Self-Worth Is Not Tied to Success

        Successful people are secure. They do not derive their self-worth from what they own, who they know, where they live or what they look like.

        32. Kindness Breeds Kindness (And Success)

        Generosity and kindness is a common trait among long-term successful people. It’s important to take pleasure in helping others achieve.

        33. More Humility, Less Arrogance

        Successful people are humble and happy to admit and apologize for mistakes. This is because they’re confident in their ability. They are happy to learn from others and happy to make others look good rather than seek their own personal glory.

        34. Change Opens New Doors

        People who are successful are adaptable and embrace change, while the majority are creatures of comfort and habit. They are comfortable with, and embrace, the new and the unfamiliar.

        35. Success Requires a Healthy Body

        It’s not just how you think, it’s about how you show up for success. Successful people understand the importance of being physically well, not for vain reasons but because being in tiptop condition creates a better personal life for success.

        36. Laziness Just Doesn’t Exist

        Successful people are never considered lazy. Yes, they can relax when they need to, but working hard is their game.

        37. Resilience by the Bucket Load

        When difficulty strikes, most would throw in the towel, but successful people are just warming up.

        38. Feedback Is Just Another Chance to Improve

        How people react to feedback determines their potential for success. Being open to constructive criticism and acting on it to improve is most seen in those who are successful.

        39. Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe

        If people are hanging out with toxic and negative people, then they need to take a look at themselves. Successful people hang out with others who are positive and supportive.

        40. Can’t Control It? Forget It

        Successful people don’t invest time or emotional energy into things which they have no control of.

        41. Swim Against the Tide

        Successful people are not people-pleasers and they don’t need constant approval from others in order to move ahead.

        Advertising

        42. Alone Time Is Valuable Time

        More self-worth means being more comfortable with your own company. Successful people are more happy and see the value in spending time alone.

        43. Self-Standard Is Higher Than Most

        Everyone has a choice to set high standards for themselves. Successful people do this, which in turn produces greater commitment, more momentum, a better work ethic and of course, better results.

        44. Failure Isn’t Rationalized

        While many use age, health, lack of time, ‘bad luck’, or lack of opportunity to explain away their failure, the key to success is finding a way to succeed despite facing these challenges.

        45. Down Time Is an Important Part of a Routine

        Having an off switch and taking time to do things that make them happy is a common trait of a successful person. Take a look at here The Importance of Scheduling Downtime.

        46. Career Isn’t Who You Are, It’s What You Do

        Successful people know their career isn’t their identity. They are multi-dimensional and don’t define themselves by their job.

        47. Be Interested in Only the Path of Resistance

        While most people look for the easiest way or the shortcut, successful people are more interested in the most effective way. They look for the course of action which will produce the best results over the long term.

        48. Follow Through

        Many spend their life starting things that they never finish, but successful people get the job done. Even when the excitement and the novelty has worn off they still follow through and finish.

        49. Invest in All Your Dimensions

        We’re not just physical and psychological beings, but emotional and spiritual creatures as well. Successful people consciously work at being healthy and productive on all levels.

        50. Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

        To obtain success, it’s important to practice what you preach. Successful people don’t talk about the theory, they live the reality.

        So there you have it, a summary of what I’ve learned from self-help books. But of course, you need to start taking actions so you will get closer to success too.
