Janji Ditepati’, a universal value

IN MY opinion, “Janji Ditepati” is an appropriate theme for the Merdeka celebration this year as it reminds every Malaysian of the importance of fulfilling promises and it should not be misconstrued as being a political move. It is a universal value that should be observed to ensure our success in life.
Successful companies like Microsoft and McDonald’s are able to become world class players because of their ability to fulfill their promises in terms of quality of the service and products they provide.
Many non-profit organisations such as St John Ambulance Malaysia and Red Crescent are still here today because of their ability to fulfil their promises to provide good voluntary services.
Our sports athletes know the importance of fulfilling their promises and hence can perform in international sports events. Their achievements are not the result of chance but tough training and persistence.
“Janji Ditepati” is multi-dimensional. It is our promise to ourselves, our children, our parents, our superiors, our subordinates, our customers, our country and also to the Almighty.
“Janji Ditepati” is not the exclusive trademark for Barisan National hence cannot be thought of as a way to topple opposition parties, instead it should be recognised as a way to achieve a culture of excellence.
Countries like Japan and Germany were able to recover quickly and make big progress after their defeat in WWII because of their ability to fulfil promises of getting things done according to specifications and being able to deliver on time.
I strongly believe that it is not impossible for us to follow in the footsteps of these countries and be on the path to become an advanced and high-income country in the near future.
