Every day, unless there are unusual events, I wake up at about 7 am. I will brush my teeth, shave and freshen up before going for my morning workout in the gym. The term “downstairs” is relative to where I stay on that day. When I am in my own mansion, “downstairs” means taking the stairs from my bedroom at the third storey to my private gym at the ground floor. When I built this mansion, I had specified a gym to be built at one corner with transparent glass walls overlooking a beautiful garden with the sea at the background. As usual I will turn on my Jerry Savelle’s CD when I exercise. It always gives me more energy and brighten up my day.
When I am not at home, I will be most likely in a hotel. There my gym is just in one of the rooms. I always make sure that all my suites are equipped with exercise apparatus, which is gladly obliged by all the hotels I stayed in. After all, if you are staying in the presidential suite, you can basically ask for anything money can buy.
After my workout, I take a bath and have breakfast with my family. My wife and son will be awake by now. Nothing beats having some hot coffee with my family every morning. After breakfast, my son will be off to school while my wife and I will have a leisurely stroll at the beach at my backyard.
At around 10, I will be at my computer checking emails, reviewing my facebook account and of course blogging. Yeap Chee Seng Weblog has been a great hit worldwide with millions of viewers every day. All I have done was to write down all the inspirations from God and post it there. This blog has been a great blessing to me. It is not only an instrument for me to share everything I learned from God, it is also a medium in which my readers sharing their testimonies on how their lives have changed for the better after reading what I have written. This has truly brought joy to my heart. So, most of my mornings were spent in form of a computer. The internet is my main gateway to the rest of the world, followed by my private plane.
My lunch is usually spent with my ministry or business teams. I may be very rich now but I am not exactly free. I have a lot of projects in my hands. As a measure of efficiency, I allocate different days of the week for my various projects.
On Mondays, I meet with the management of my foundation of food and water. I set up this foundation with the purpose of providing sufficient food and clean water to those who are starving around the world. I am so rich now that I can eat whatever I want. My descendents will never taste hunger. However, there are many people who do not even have enough to eat. I feel for them and I intend to do what I can to help them.
YCS Foundation of Food And Water was set up for this purpose. In this foundation, I have teams buying all the surplus food from one part of the world and distribute them to other parts that experience food shortage. In addition, I also have research scientists developing high yield and resilient crops for the third world countries to create a more stable supply of food. This foundation costs me a lot of money but it also gives me even bigger satisfaction.
I do not have any target of how many people I want to help but I like to think of it this way. Assuming that there are 10 millions of people dying of hunger every day and I can only save 1% of them, this means I am saving 100,000 lives every day. In other words, my presence in this world has directly saved 100,000 lives every day. I love this job.
Other than food, this foundation also works on water supply for the needy. Having access to clean water is crucial for good health. Most of us in developed area take clean water for granted but we need to be aware that a lot of people in poor countries drink water that is so muddy that we don’t even want to use to wash our toilets. Here, we work on developing and introducing technology that can purify water cheaply to the masses.
Tuesdays are allocated for my real estate business. I meet up with my property managers, accountants, lawyers and all other specialists through satellite links as they are located all around the world. This is quite complicated as I have thousands of buildings around the world. The amount of money I receive from rentals and sales is staggering. I have an army of accountants to tabulate and compile my earnings for tax and tithing purpose.
If anyone is to ask me how much is my net-worth, my answer is I don’t know. Some institutions estimate 11 to 12 figures sum but no one can be sure. All I know is I can afford to have anything money can buy. Once, I had a very embarrassing experience. I was in London and was impressed by a very beautiful building. I fell in love in it a once. So, made a call to instruct my legal assistant to find out the identity of the owner and negotiate to purchase it. It turns out that this building belongs to a company fully owned by me! So, I have already owned that building without realizing it. Basically I have given up trying to memorize all my properties. There are too many of them. All I know is they are the cash cows for my humanitarian and scientific projects.
Wednesdays are for my high tech ventures. I have a venture capitalist company focusing on funding new technology startups. There are many investment failures but those that made it big are more than enough to make up for the losses with a lot of balance.
In comparison with my real estate investments, this business does not give a very consistent income but those successful ventures can cause huge spikes in my profit margin. In other words, the profit curve is like a roller coaster.
My favorite segment is in nano-technology. I have funded a few firms in this area of expertise. I look forward to the day where my science fiction dreams comes true.
On Thursdays, I focus in my infrastructure business. I may be rich but I still have the engineer’s heart in me. I like to build things. I have acquired many specialists engineering firms for this purpose. At this moment, I have projects in drilling tunnels, building roads, bridges and railways. My wife likes to call these the most expensive Lego games because she knows I am doing this for fun. This business has the lowest profit margin but who cares? I have a lot of fun doing it.
On Fridays, I will look at my second foundation. It is called YCS Foundation of Prosperity. As the name suggests, its focus is to bring people out of poverty into prosperity. Poverty is bad. It harms and prevents people from living to their fullest potential. I want to eliminate it. The only way to get rid of poverty is to flush it out with prosperity. People must learn on how to get rich. Once you are rich, you will no longer be poor.
Poverty is both spiritual and physical. This is why I work with various ministries like JSMI and KCM to introduce the Gospel to the poor. This foundation provides physical aids like loans and education, both practical and spiritual to the poor. It is a long term project but I am glad I have some good results flowing in. Many people who have gone through the training programs have seen their prosperity increasing.
Saturdays are for family. By the way, I only have one family. We spend time together having fun. We have done many things together like cruising in my private ship and flying around the world. There was a few times where we flew to Tokyo for breakfast, London for lunch and dinner back in Singapore. Thank God for my supersonic jet.
At night I am busy again preparing for church on Sunday. What is there to prepare? I am the main preacher in my church. I have set up my own church with some like-minded friends. We have even given it a name that can cause theologians to jump out of their graves. The church is called “Get Rich Church”.
In all my messages, I focus on one thing only, preaching the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. I will not tolerate any heresies like God wants you to be sick and poor to show you his sufficient grace. Such filth will never appear in my church. In fact, I have made it clear to my church members that I would rather close down the whole church than to resort to manipulate people for money like what my first church did.
In case someone may ask on my salary from this church, the answer is I don’t get any. I already have more money than I can spend. Why would I need to take anymore salary?
I count the church to be another success in my life. My sermons are broadcast all around the world. The church websites are flooded with testimonies on how their lives have changed after listening to the messages. There is even a black market that trades seats in the church. From what I have heard, there are people queuing overnight in front of the church to get the queue numbers. Then they proceed to sell those numbers for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Wow, since when have my church seats has become real estate? I am still not sure on whether I should take action to prevent this. What I am thinking of is to build a 100,000 seats stadium to hold church services but I have no doubt that the demand will soon out-strip supply.
After Sunday Service, I will usually meet up with friends for fellowship and network. We have great fun together.
That is for now. This is my life.
