“What do you really want in life? My previous business could not give this to me, but Nu Skin could.”
Coming from a poor family, Ichiro Chuah understands hardship and poverty. At the age of 21, he rode his motorcycle all the way from Penang to KL, hoping to seek his fortune in the big city. With no money and no support, the intrepid young man had no choice but to spend his first three nights sleeping at a bus stop.
With his talent in dance, Ichiro gradually made a name for himself in the dance circle. Together with Dawn, his wife and dance partner, they won the World Championship title in 1998 and 1999. This led the couple to establish their own dance company, choreographing and performing at events.
While this brought some measure of success, running a business in the entertainment industry was not without its drawbacks. Ichiro soon realised that his health was declining due to his hectic lifestyle. But the most painful realisation came when his two children cried because they missed their father. “Day after day, my eldest son would ask me if I had time for him, if I was free to do things with him. I had no say no, because I had a packed performance schedule, even more so during the weekends. My son would start crying,” Ichiro reminisced.
That was one of the turning points for him. Because his family was of the utmost importance to him, Ichiro wanted to have the time and finances that would enable him to give the best to them.
For this tenacious man, rejection was of no consequence. Combining his fierce fighting spirit with his love for his family enabled Ichiro to surmount all obstacles in his path to achieving his dream. “When I faced diffculties, I’ll ask myself: what’s more important – my loved ones or the diffculties? If your loved ones are more important, then rejection is nothing. All problems are just temporary setbacks on the road to success.”
As he achieved success upon success in Nu Skin, Ichiro’s “why” has changed. Like most people, financial reward was the initial primary goal. Now that he has arrived at the point where he does not have to think about money and he has time to travel the world with his family, his motivation for success has shifted. “Money cannot motivate me now,” he shares. “My goal now is to help more people transform their lives, the way I did mine. I want to complete my millionaire target and, in future, become the top in Southeast Asia so that Nu Skin can use my success story to motivate more people.”
Ichiro is extremely grateful to his direct upline, 1 Year Presidential Director & Circle of Excellence I, Andy Wong & Annie Woo, as well as to 1 Year Platinum Presidential Director, 1 Year Presidential Director & Circle of Excellence I, Desmond Teoh, and 4 Year Platinum Presidential Director, 14 Year Presidential Director & Circle of Excellence IV, Angela Liew & Rayne Ho and all the Circle of Excellence members for their guidance.
