Mr Dream Big
Steve was a youth-at-risk 20 years ago. At the age of 15, he got into bad company and started going astray. He joined a secret society and his life became very negative. He started smoking, drinking and even took drugs. When his parents started forcing him to change his ways, he, an away from home. Finally he got himself kicked out of school after his ‘N’levels. He was wasting his time doing nothing except for getting into more trouble.
One day, out of the blue, he got the opportunity to attend a motivation course. He started liking the group and wanted to change his ways. He left the secret society and started hanging out with the course participants who were encouraging him to live his life to the fullest. It took him many years to change every negative habit but eventually, he did it.
During this period of change, he went for his National Service where he learnt a lot about himself. In his last year during National Service, he met Rita who was a discipline freak- just what he needed at that point of time. When he completed his national service, he got an opportunity to work in his father’s security company, Royal Security Management Services Pte Ltd together with his two sisters. Due to the lack of education and experience, he had to start working as a security officer and climb the later from there. He attended multiple courses and upgraded himself.
Finally after 7 years, he was given an opportunity to become one of the directors of the company. That got him moving up to the next level and he, together with his sister, brought the company to receive multiple awards.
At the age of 35, after getting his first private property, he was very pleased with himself. At that time he met one of his old friends who was in a very bad shape in life and he felt very sad for him. That got him thinking- he could have turned out just like his friend. It was sheer luck that he changed his mindset at the right time.
Steve decided that he wanted to make a difference in the lives of youth who may be going through some challenging times. He started a new company Dream Big Pte Ltd. His experience running a business and his experience being a senior grassroots leader made his come up with a unique business model for Dream Big Pte Ltd. He started attending courses and workshops to upgrade his skills.
He uses his life stories to motivate youth. He has always been a ‘people’ person and the youth love talking to him. Apart from his experiences, he also wanted to reach out to youth using NLP, something he was very interested in as he understood that he changed 20 years ago mainly due to the change in mindset. He got himself trained in NLP by his role model, Adam Khoo. He attended Adam Khoo’s Patterns of Excellence course and got trained by Adam Khoo himself. He is now a Licensed NLP Practitioner and learned more than just NLP with this experience with his role model.
Steve moved on to the next level and became a volunteer probational officer and helped juveniles change their path positively.
