The Secret of Luck by Muchlis Anwar

Luck for some people is nothing but just a myth. For the skeptic, Luck only exists in an imaginary world. They believe in hard work. In order to achieve their goals, they rely on all of those scientific measurements and strategic thinking and planning. 

I do believe that hard work is a must, in order to achieve what we set as our goal. But I also believe such Factor X. The things that came out somewhere, out of
nowhere, but somehow it gets there, become a solution to our problem. This thing is called Luck.

The Secret of Luck by Muchlis Anwar
Well, actually there is a living evidence about this luck thing. Somebody that has been experiencing many occasion, event, and many other things that happened to him, that is a result of Luck work. This so lucky guy is Muchlis Anwar. Ulish, that is what he called, has been traveling to Europe without spending a penny out of his pocket. He stays in Japan for a while without paying any money, get this and that, have this and that, that merely achieved by his luck. 

When he realize that he is such a lucky person, he tries to contemplate, seeks for the answer. What is the source of his luck, what makes him such a lucky person?

After some time of thinking and contemplation, he found out those things that later he called it “The Secret of Luck”.

Yup, based on his experience, his luck indeed came to him by hard work. But not such kind of working 23 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. He formulates 5 things to do to increase Luck Factor. These 5 are:


  1. Smile
  2. Pray
  3. Grateful
  4. Make other people feel lucky
  5. Get close with the One who give us Luck (GOD)


See, the secret of luck is not that kind of hard work, it’s more like a personal attitude and habits that somehow it can alter our path of life. 

Let’s start with a smile. Yes everybody can smile, it’s not hard to do, so can just smile make us a lucky person? Well, Ulish says that it’s not an ordinary smile, it’s a special smile. A smile that followed by the happiness inside our heart. To create such smile, try to remember the happiest thing that ever happen to us, anything, be it a first date, birthday party, wedding ceremony, anything. When we remember that happiest moment, try to feel the same happiness in your heart now, the same happiness you felt when you have a first date. And then, after you feel such happiness, show it with a smile. A smile with full of happiness inside. 

Ok, it’s easy, just feel happy then smile, that’s it, got it. Hold on buddy….. ^_^ yes we can recreate such happiness and express it through the smile, a brink of a smile,  2-3 seconds, and then finish. Ulish says, in order to make our self lucky, we have to live the day with that happiness smile at least 16 hours out of 24 hours. We have to retain this state of happiness smile that long. No matter what day we had that day, we have to be able to retain that happiness and that smile. When we can do it, then Luck is on the way towards us.

That’s the first secret.

The second is Pray. Yep, everybody does pray, to ask a favor of God. When we need something, we ask HIM, that’s pray. But in order to make us a lucky person, we have to pray in a different way than we usually pray before. Usually, on this praying thing, we are being an egoistic creature. We pray to ask something just for our self or our family. Actually, this “egoistic" pray is not wrong, but if we want to be a lucky person, we have to do more than that. We have to pray for another person. We have to pray for our friends, clients, customer, or even random person that not even our acquaintance. 

After Pray, the third secret is Grateful. We thank GOD for everything we had. Even if we are just an average low middle-class person in the society. We grateful for  the life we have, the health, work, family, and everything that we had and experiencing.

Then the forth is make other people feel lucky. Do something that so meaningful to others. If somebody asks us a favor, do it beyond their expectation. When we use somebody’s service, pay them more than their price. And so on. If we make other people feels lucky, then the luck itself will come to us

And the last, based on Ulish Secret of Luck formula, is get close to GOD. Yes, of course, if we want to make a deal with a client, we have to close with that client, and if we want to be a lucky person, we have to get close to HIM, the only one who hold Luck in HIS Hand.

Those are the Secret of Luck.

Mengurus PBB yang diblokir di Cikarang, ke PEMDA Kab. Bekasi

Berawal dari salah satu syarat pengajuan KPR, yang disana tercantum harus ada “Copy PBB tahun terbaru”, saya jadi terlibat perjalanan bolak balik keliling Cikarang untuk mengurus PBB rumah yang diblokir. (Kisah saya mengajukan KPR, bisa dibaca disini)


PBB (Pajak Bumi dan Bangunan) adalah Pajak Negara yang dikenakan terhadap tanah dan bangunan. Lebih lengkapnya seputar PBB ini silahkan baca di situs resmi Dirjen Pajak di: http://www.pajak.go.id/content/seri-pbb-ketentuan-umum-pajak-bumi-dan-bangunan-pbb.


Ketika mengajukan Kredit ke Bank BTN Cabang Cikarang, saya dapat sebuah brosur berisi besaran kredit yang bisa diberikan beserta syarat-syaratnya.

Perpanjang STNK Motor di SAMSAT Cibinong

Ini pertama kalinya saya memperpanjang STNK motor di SAMSAT Kab. Bogor di Cibinong. Prosesnya sederhana dan Cepat. Seluruh proses hanya memakan waktu kurang lebih 40 menit.

Pertama-tama kita harus mempersiapkan dokumen-dokumen yang dibutuhkan. Untuk perpanjangan  STNK 1 tahun, yang harus dibawa adalah:
STNK AsliKTP Asli sesuai dengan nama di STNK
Awalnya saya kira harus menyerahkan BPKB juga, soalnya pengalaman saya mengurus STNK di SAMSAT Kota Tangerang gitu, harus bawa STNK Asli, KTP Asli dan BPKB. Namun

Kereta Jakarta Cikarang

Bagi sebagian besar penduduk Jakarta, Cikarang adalah suatu tempat yang sangat jauh. Karena Cikarang itu letaknya diluar Bekasi. Bekasi aja udah jauh, apa lagi Cikarang ^_^. Padahal kalau melihat plang penanda jarak di Jalan Tol, jarak Jakarta-Cikarang itu hanya 30 Km.

Saya sekarang tinggal di Cikarang sementara kerja masih di Jakarta. Tiap hari dilaju Cikarang-Jakarta, adapun transportasi yang saya gunakan adalah

Mutasi SIM online di Tangerang

Seminggu sebelum SIM saya berakhir masa berlakunya, saya berangkat ke kantor SATPAS Polres Tangerang di Tangerang Kota. Saya kesana karena dulu, SIM C saya ini dibuat di Tangerang. Sebelumnya saya sudah browsing-browsing di internet, mencari informasi tentang mutasi SIM. Saya harus mutasi karena sekarang saya KTP-nya Bogor.

Saya bahkan sampai telpon ke Call Center Korlantas POLRI di 021-1500669, menanyakan prosedur mutasi SIM. Dari petugas yang menerima telpon saya, saya diberitahu bahwa saya harus Cabut Berkas dulu di Tangerang, lalu

Gunung Munara - Hiking Pendek Yang Memacu Adrenalin

Gunung Munara

"Disini mulai rame sejak tahun baru kemarin"
"Tahun baru 2015 ini?"
"Iya, tahun baru 2015 ini, sebelumnya mah paling Sabtu Minggu doang, itu juga paling banyak 50 motor"

Begitulah percakapan singkat saya dengan teteh pemilik warung kelapa muda. Saya bertanya padanya sejak kapan Gunung Munara ini banyak dikunjungi. Nama Gunung Munara sekarang ini semakin sering dibicarakan orang. Spot pendakian yang terletak di daerah Rumpin, Bogor, ini memang tengah naik daun. Alasannya adalah, Gunung Munara memberikan tantangan yang sekelas naik gunung, namun jaraknya relatif pendek. Dari start mendaki sampai ke puncak, dibutuhkan waktu 1 – 1,5 jam saja.

Saya pun tertarik untuk menjajal track pendakian di Gunung Munara ini. Oh ya, meski namanya Gunung Munara, sebenarnya ini adalah sebuah bukit dengan batu-batu yang sangat besar. Dan yang membuat saya heran, banyak sekali batu-batu besar sebesar rumah yang tumpang tindih sedemikian rupa seolah sengaja disu…
