Duong Ngoc Trinh is acclaimed for her prowess as an MC and Editor for VTV financial series such as Moneytalk and Financial News. With a confident demeanor and adept leadership, Trinh effortlessly transforms dry and complex financial topics into insightful conversations.

Before diving into this episode of Have A Sip, host Thuy Minh initially hesitated to explore financial or monetary matters, especially after their recent discussion with Trinh in The Money Date podcast. However, this theme resurfaced in their conversation, providing a fresh perspective on the interplay between money and life.

“In the journey of youth, who hasn’t veered off course?”

We all encounter opportunities to explore new paths, sometimes straying onto others’ trails. Yet, through such experiences, we truly discern our paths.

The crucial thing is not to lose oneself for too long and to estimate the cost of doing so. We can’t rely on others’ successes to define our capabilities, nor should we regard setbacks as permanent labels.

Moreover, embracing life’s uncertainties as lessons rather than pitfalls of self-doubt and anguish is vital. Following the failure, the initial step we could take is self-improvement and sharing those lessons with others.

Emotions shouldn’t dictate decisions impacting mood, health, and career. It’s wiser to discern and prioritize what aligns with our true selves rather than succumbing to fleeting emotions. “If indulging in sweets leads to weight gain, then perhaps it’s best to abstain,” she said.

The greatest mission for anyone is self-understanding

Duong Ngoc Trinh categorizes this mission into three parts: understanding mind and body, understanding relationships with others, and understanding relationships with money.

Without understanding oneself, one must undergo a series of tests. If one believes in a grand mission, it implies facing tests more rigorous than others. Instead of pursuing lofty missions that may not resonate, leading to self-loss, aligning with what you want is crucial.

Ultimately, we realize that what we’ve been pursuing is often wandering, not optimism. Sun Tzu once said, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.” The clearer our aspirations and objectives, the clearer the path to success.

Each person’s mission also involves understanding their surroundings to ascertain how we can contribute positively to society. One can truly grasp one’s purpose by mitigating negative influences and fostering positivity.

Money serves as a gauge of human survival skills

According to Trinh, money reflects one’s ability to manage one’s life. Its significance as a crucial tool to shape our desired lives cannot be overlooked.

Many envision scenarios where financial freedom allows for early retirement or quitting undesirable jobs.

People often contemplate, ‘Once I have sufficient funds, I’ll retire early,’ or ‘If I acquire enough money, I’ll quit my job immediately’ | Source: Bobby Vu for Vietcetera

However, she highlights, in reality, that day may never come. As financial stability increases, so do our desires for more, necessitating disciplined planning for sustainable growth.

In conclusion, she believes that tormenting us daily is how we choose our perspective. With an optimistic outlook, we prepare ourselves with resilience, regarding setbacks as mere tests, immune to their potential harm or destruction.
