In his early learning journey, MuMing is encouraged to received results from what he once deemed was impossible; 3/5 Secondary School Bursary Award, 4/6 Director’s list in Nanyang Polytechnic Space & Interior Design, Best Commander March 2013 of SAF, Special Mentioned from SAF Unit’s Commanding Officer during R&R, and participated with his Unit's Battalion Key Leadership Team on TetraMap Training as a NSF.

He believes that everybody can develop the "Courage Muscles" to explore, experiment and endure to make their life goals a reality. As it doesn't take money to make money, or tactics to build genuine relationships, or magic to live a regret-free life. It takes courage to ask for a better deal, courage to resolve an unspoken hurt, and courage to stay in the game of making our goals a reality.
