Actor Xian Lim does not subscribe to the saying that “good things come to those who wait,” and he has a valid reason for this.

In his Instagram video posted on December 17, Lim said one’s dreams are waiting to happen but only if one acted on it.

“Good things come to those who wait— I disagree,” he said as a preliminary.

“While there is some truth to that, the best things in life do come when you least expect it. But your dreams, your goals are waiting for you — not the other way around. You have to be the one to claim your prize,” he claimed.

“So I say, let’s not be stagnant. Let’s not stay in the same place and let life pass us by. Let’s have an open mindset. Let’s grab life by the horns and steer our ship to the direction (we) want to go,” he said.

Lim further said one must not wait for opportunities to land on his lap and instead, to “slowly pound on that marble until you see the beautiful sculpture.”

“Always be the hardest working person in the room. Be patient yet persistent enough to strive to be better every single day. No pressure. No rush. Just enjoy the process and have fun with it. A little food for thought,” he captioned his IG post.
