In this edition of Inspiring People, we speak to Syafique Shuib founder of motivationMY and the ever popular twitter hashtag #dailyMOJO.
Meeting Syafique for the first time confirms his personal assessment of himself, a quiet unassuming young journalist and producer; and thats where that assessment ends as this is a very personal and intensive look into the life of Syafique, whatmotivated him to start motivationMY and where does he want to take it in the future.
He describes himself, “I wasn’t the popular kid. I didn’t have a lot of friends. I was pretty much clueless and I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life (well, at 17, it’s about finding the right degree to pursue!). Didn’t have much self-confidence, either.” He has taken to using motivationMY as a window into his life, give the website a very personal yet insightful view into the life of a young person working towards one miracle at a time.
As more people gained acceptance of his website, it slowly became a platform for people to share their inspiring stories, thoughts, insights, hopes and dreams or use it as a sounding board. He has also used Twitter to great effect, starting with the ”Question of the Day” where readers share their thoughts on a particular question, this segment has taken quite an interesting direction when prominent names started answering the “Question of the Day” including Tengku Zatashah from the Selangor Royal Family, Datuk Wira SM Faisal, Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir, local celebs Daphne Iking, Datuk Fazley Yaakob, Zain Saidin, Awi Rafael and many more!
He is now in the 2nd year of his very inspiring venture and motivationMY have introduced the #dailyMOJO hashtag on Twitter and #dailyMOJO inspiration posters, which you can check out at www.bit.ly/dailymojo !
He has been featured in The Star newspaper in their Be Inspired Column, followed by a feature in Hanger Magazine for a Levi’s campaign and ended 2011 by being one of the 10 Men of the Year for CLIVE magazine.
