Story of Change: Pich Reach (Klahan9 Online Audience)
“The Klahan9 content has changed my thinking, controlled my daily emotional response to problems, and made me more mature. It’s like a life lesson that I can easily learn and share with my friends, and that keeps reminding me whenever I do anything.”
Reach is currently a musician who frequently performs at pubs, bars, restaurants and beer gardens. He also works occasionally as a research freelancer to support his monthly expenses.
Reach’s dream is to be a famous solo musician and earn enough money to support his family.
“Klahan9 has inspired me a lot since I started following it, and it has provided me with valuable life lessons like changing my bad habits of spending and not planning”, Reach said. Besides motivation from Klahan9, he has a plan now to make his own original songs with a new melody so more people get to know of him. With limited opportunity, he thinks he may not be able to achieve his dream. However, he keeps in mind of what he wants to do and does not think about giving up.
To him, the most influential content of Klahan9 is its theme song. “I love listening to the Klahan9 song because it calms me down, changes my mood, and makes me think of my dream. I listened to the song and wrote down the words. It keeps reminding me of what I have faced and what I should do to change myself. It inspired me a lot.”
He has seen some significant impacts on his life after he followed up with Klahan9 on Facebook page and other platforms like YouTube. First, it motivates him to try more and do more with his life. He learns to save money and plan for the money that he earns from performing. He is also motivated to never stop dreaming even there are a lot of obstacles on the way to become a famous musician. In addition, the dreamers from Dream Station gave Reach valuable advice from their experiences, and how to solve problems. “All the quotes and posts that I view serve as a daily reminder to continuously change my life for the better and keep my dream going”, Reach added.
Besides his dream, he has a short-term plan to earn enough money so that he can continue his study one day and help his sibling through education. Reach said: “I need to make sure that I no longer waste my money on unnecessary stuff but instead save money, make plans and find more freelance work.”.
“Failure is a life lesson. If you fail once, you need to try harder to succeed. Without failure, success is nowhere to be found.”, Reach quoted.
