Liu Kam Hing, Bobby has a brilliant resume. He is definitely one of the successful people in Hong Kong. He is not only the chief executive officer of a engineering plastics and environmental materials group and a winner of Young Industrialist Awards of Hong Kong, but he also holds multiple public service positions. He is the President of the Hong Kong Young Industrialists Council and the Deputy Chairman of the District Fight Crime Committee (Eastern District) of Home Affairs Department. Many who do not know him well often think that he is a lucky guy who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth which guarantees his success. However, the truth is that he came from a grassroots family who grew up in a public housing unit under the Lion Rock. ‘Our family of six lived in a small public housing unit, the only entertainment after school was playing table tennis, and it was impossible to have extra pocket money.’ Liu was not a talented child, he had the symptoms of dyslexia and lack of concentration since he was little. From today’s perspective, he was an SEN patient. He has overcome his own limitations, worked hard and started a business, and even took a bold step in his middle-age and obtained a PhD in Business Administration (DBA) from the City University of Hong Kong in four years. How did Liu do all these? How does one turn the external and internal limitations into motivation?
