1) Never give up on your dreams.
Giving up is never in Wincci’s dictionary. While she works hard expanding her career in the entertainment industry, she did not give up on her dream of achieving Ph.D. It took her 6 years to finally obtain her doctorate title.
2) Do not stereotype people.
Being crowned Miss World Malaysia in 2008, Dr Soo Wincci was often stereotyped as a beauty queen without brains. She proved everyone wrong and further proved that beauty is nothing without brains.
3) Do not complain. Embrace it, and you will be successful.
It is so easy for us to criticize and complain when problem arises. Dr Soo Wincci tells us that, by facing our problems head on like she did, we are prone to finding ways to conquer it and not dwell on it.
4) What a son can do, a daughter can do too.
It is the 21st century, and the idea that someone’s daughter wouldn’t have the same opportunity as someone’s son, well, that is unacceptable and not valid anymore. Dr Soo Wincci’s success proved that what a son can do, a daughter can do too.
5) There’s no shortcut. Stop making excuses and work hard.
Dr Soo Wincci believes nothing worth having, comes easy. To achieve, is to work hard. Wincci’s achievements today did not just drop from the sky but are resulted from her hard work and many sleepless nights.
6) Step out of your comfort zone and enjoy taking challenges.
We all have a comfort zone but Wincci believes one should be willing to stretch yourself by stepping out of your comfort zone. Only this way, you can become a better you over time. Wincci did not just stick to her forte but over time, she picked up different skill sets such as “Bian Lian”, pole dance, cooking, and many more. Today, she is arguably one of the celebrities, in not just Malaysia but in Asia, with most diverse skill sets.
7) Stop Worrying About What Other People Think Of You.
“Crazy” is the word many people use to describe Wincci. But she did not mind people calling her that. Simply because she knows what she is doing. Don’t dwell on your short comings, focus on your strength, be what you want to be and it would shine through.
8) Be independent.
Learn not to rely on anyone too much. Wincci’s journey to become who she is today wasn’t all smooth sailing. She has encountered failures and been through many tough times. Despite countless obstacles that she faced, Wincci remained strong and independent.
9) Be thankful and grateful.
Even if you’re successful, remember your friends and family who helped you and supported you all the way. If you personally know Wincci, you would know that she is not only humble, she is also a grateful person. She never forgets her family, friends and Beyond Artiste team who have contributed to her success.
10) Proud to be Malaysian.
Dr Soo Wincci is very proud to be Malaysian as she shows it, being Malaysian is about being passionate, being responsible and wearing your feelings about it on your sleeves. She never fails to tell everyone she is a proud Malaysian wherever she goes.
