Greater understanding and love of oneself to better understand and love others

Below is a letter I sent one year ago just before 2012.  For personal development reasons, I thought it may be useful for some of my readers who may stumble across my website.


My dear beloved brothers and sisters,

While reflecting on my own strengths and weaknesses, my core competencies and shortcomings, I noticed some very interesting things and also some interesting trends from where I was 5 or even 10 years ago.  It seems some of who I am has not changed a bit.  It also seems that I have improved in many areas while falling back in a few other areas.

It dawned upon me that I cannot be using this tool for my own personal development only.  These are amazing tools and you guys deserve to be using them for gaining better insight into learning who you are.  At the end of day, month, year, decade, or our life as a whole, only things that really matter are who are we, who were we, how did we treat others, and how much impact have we made in the world… was it positive; where there rooms for improvement; did we really give our best; have I enjoyed my life; and have I loved and created more enjoyable life for others…

The only way to truly understand and love others is to really gain better insight into who you are and to better love yourself.

I heard the above many times before, but I did not always truly understand this.  I am sort of slowly getting better insight into this, but I think this is 100% absolutely true.

In any case, without further dues, I can recommend you two tools that you can use on annual basis to review who you are and where you are.  Please let me know if you know other great tools.

All the best in 2012.  I wish you love, health, and prosperity in the new year.  May you achieve great things, may you also take the time to understand and love yourself and each and everyone you meet along the way.  Have a great and wonderful journey in 2012.


George Sheridan Was an Amazing Man – Let’s All Learn to Love, Give, and Understand Like Him

This morning, I received a very unfortunate news about a dear friend who has recently passed away.  I share this news with you because there is something really amazing about him.  Even after he passed away, he still loves others and he still gives others.  He gave away his organs so that others could live.  He has created a fund at his church to help continue his efforts in Mongolia.  This is really truly remarkable.

I am little bit surprised to hear the news because he was a healthy and energetic person.  He went back to US to be with family, I was told.  It is entirely possible that he wasn’t feeling well and/or even knew that his time was limited.  He really wanted to help others, and you could see it in his eyes and in the way he gave his attention and time.

I am very happy to have met someone so wonderful.  Religious differences aside, I know his spirit and/or energy will continue on, and that is a very good thing.  I truly wish him and his family, friends, and loved ones the best.

Below is his obituary that I received via email today.  Let’s all pray for him and his loved ones.  Let’s also pray that all of us will develop the compassion, love, and understanding for each other in the way that George loved us.

Recognition for My Presentation at AIESEC Mongolia’s Business Event 2011

Yesterday, I gave a presentation at Mongolia University of Science and Technology (MUST) to aspiring college students at AIESEC Mongolia’s “Business Event 2011”.  In return, I got a nice little certificate, which I am proud to put up on my office window.

I will add that I was very happy to have a captive and interested audience. I was happy to have many interesting questions. Hopefully, I was able to share some useful thoughts to my guests.

BTW, the topic of my presentation of “Using technology for personal development”. I used the same presentation slides that I used at Tavan Bogd group, when I did a training of the executives at the company. However, this time, my presentation was in Mongolian language and I tried to tailor my messages to the young and hopeful crowd as much as possible.

This was my second event with AIESEC.  In February, I did an Entrepreneurship workshop at their National Leadership Training weekend.

No More Loser Songs – Built for Success

Don’t get me wrong.  I love Connie Francis and all of the blue, heart-felt songs, but I think it’s time I don’t listen to loser songs again.

As Tony Robbins, Andrew Carnegie, Buddha, and many other famous and successful people would agree or would have agreed, the principle of autosuggestion and the power of the mind in terms of “we are what we think” or “as a man thinketh“, I will no longer dilute my thoughts with songs about how sad I am, how I am not sure what to do, how poor/unlucky I am, etc.

I want to win and win big this year and beyond.

Weekend Adventures with Digging Holes and Grazing Horses

This past weekend, I went to Selenge Soum in Tuv Aimag, just about 40-50km outside of Ulaanbaatar. I got to do a little bit of manual labor (digging holes for fence posts and pulling fence posts). I also got to ride a horse and to meet with locals there. It was very relaxing weekend. I had great food, awesome company, and a very good time.

BTW, this post is for all my friends and family back in US. I just want to let everyone know that I am doing OK. I miss everyone a ton. And, I wanted to just share a piece of my life with you. Hopefully, we will all meet again very soon when I visit the States.

Without further due, here are two videos from my trip to the countryside this weekend. First is the video showing me digging holes instead of horseback riding. The second shows my horse grazing around me as I lay down and relax on top of the mountain my horse and I just climbed.

Outdoor Office – Working Outside at the Office

Recently, I worked outside.  I had my staff, my team, help me take my table, chair, and notebook outside, so that I can get some work done outside while hearing the birds chirp.  It was such a wonderful day and being inside in the office just didn’t seem quite as exciting.

So, there you have it: Mergen working at his outdoor office!

Who says you can’t be outside and at the office at the same time?
