It just occurred to me that you are not doing enough to get your dream job.
Well, let me put it this way.
Story 1: I just had a chat with someone and she says that she has been applying for jobs for months (like I think it's more than 6 months) and she has not even got an interview.
Story 2: I also have spoken to someone who has been applying for jobs and attending interviews but did not get a job for like more than 8 months!!
I definitely sympathize with that as I can imagine the worry and fear that goes thru a person head when they are in such a position.
Back to story 1. I immediately told her that since she has applied for so many jobs and none even called her for an interview, it is obvious that her CV did not pop and we will need to make it pop.
But the thing is this. If you wanted to make your CV pop, you can easily google and check out tons of online resources on how to make it pop and stand out. Could'nt you? But why aren't you doing so?
The bigger question would be once you have make it all pretty and stand out, what next? The actual interview where you will actually have to perform. Stand in front or sit (whatever) and present and be yourself and deliver, answer questions, make the connection etc.
And really when I thought about it. It isn't about the outer processes. Right? I think you agree. Coz I can easily whipped out 10 steps to a successful interview and you can follow the method, memorise and follow the process but question is, would it work for you?
Which is why I certainly would not bother to write out the 10 steps to a great CV or 10 steps to a successful interview because it is so much more than steps and processes and you know it!
It is an internal change that needs to happen.
Look. I have been in situation in my career before where I was panicking that I did not get a job fast enough (and thank God - it lasted a very short time) so I know the feeling.
But to see people not getting a job for months on end and years even. Something deep is going on. A BIG TURNAROUND is needed.
I am all too familiar with the story.
When a person don't get a dream job - the story goes like this:
1. I am too old
2. There are not enough position like these for me to find a job
3. My salary is too high
4. I am not qualified enough (don't have an MBA or whatever)
5. I can't speak Chinese (or whatever language)
Believe me. These are the stories I hear.
But these are just stories. Stories that you have created albeit it seemed very real to you and to you it's REAL. It's REALITY.
I am telling you it's not. Reality is what you create and if these are your stories, then it becomes your reality.
Also, the other interesting fact is people I speak to who thinks that they don't have a particular skill when asked why they did not do something about it, will usually have some excuse or another. Like I tried but it did'nt work etc.
The conclusion is simple. You did not do anything about it because you have not decided to do so. I know it may not seem to you this way at all. You may think that you have tried and you have tried and you really want to do this / get the job / promotion etc.
Get this. WANT TO is different from I DECIDE TO.
You need to dig a little deeper and truly ask yourself. Have you decided and made it non-negotiable? Have you seek out all resources? Have you reached out for help.
Because if you really decide to do something. Really really decide. You will do whatever it takes.
I will end with "Have you decided to reach out for help?" Coz if yes, I can help you.
The promo is still on. Expiring 28 Feb.

Look. The decision is truly yours. You can stay in this state and guess what? 6 months down the road, nothing would have changed and you would still be in the same position as were when you read this post.
If you don't make a serious decision to do something about it. Then you will simply stay the same. The same old story. The same old position.
You need to decide to make a change for yourself. Change the story. Make it non negotiable. Bite the bullet and make a decision.

I am so loving my wine :-)
Seriously, I am so loving my wine and being able to drink it any time of the day. Before you think I am an alchoholic. LOL. I AM NOT.
But every other day, I would feel like having a glass or 2 of wine or my favourite vodka with pineapple. It's just super nice to be chilling with a drink or 2.
When I was in corporate, I do drink - go out and hang out with the gals and guys pretty regularly... but I don't know why.. most of the time - if I were honest, I did not quite enjoy it. I guess, it's probably the state of mind I am in. It's almost like I always have this "cloud" over me and that I am chilling yes, but deep inside - there is the cloud.
Yah - I have coined a new word. Cloud. A cloud of well... not exactly gloom but it's a deep running of some recording that I constantly rings that says "how to solve this problem" "how to meet my quota" "how to...." "how to..."
I am not saying that thinking about how to is a totally bad thing but to be thinking about this constantly and incessantly robs you of the joy of living and being. I repeat robs you of THE JOY OF LIVING AND BEING....
Now however, and since I have learned 'the secret", mindset secrets to be exact. It's such a joy of being, most of the time, coz I am not incessantly running with a deep programming of FEAR. Yes, that's what it sums up to. Fear, deep incessant worry is fear.
I am also not saying I never worry or is this crazy person that smiles endlessly and laughs non stop and never worry or have my moments of seizure and panic. But really, in the bigger scale of things. That's not the norm and is hardly present although yes, every now and then being human I do have them.
But what I am comparing is that I no longer have those incessant worries. I used to and still do have people telling me that they are normally so worried about work deadlines etc that the stress of thinking about the problems affect their holidays - and they don't even want to take time off because taking time off does not feel like taking time off. It just feels like STRESS on holiday.
I know how that feels because well, being in corporate for 30 years, I have been thru it all, seen it all and I think experience it all.
So if you would really want to have the peace of mind. If you would really want to not just only have success, but success with ease and joy, then I would like to invite you to a complimentary coaching call with me and explore how you can work with me to achieve success and truly have it all.
Yes. YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL. Success, money with peace of mind. Not just money only. Or success only but end up feeling stressed and wound up. What's so great about having lots of money and so called successes when you cannot really enjoy yourself?
When you are operating from a DEEP SEA OF FEAR, that's how it feels like. Tight. Trap. Amidst all the money, and the outward success.
Break past this barrier. And if you want to know how, there is a special that I am running... It's a promo that will be expiring 28 Feb.

Ever had a time in your life when you are down on your knees and you just don't know what to do anymore but finally surrender?
Like when you have tried everything, everything and everything. You did what the "Gurus" tell you to do. You need to do process A then B then C etc and you tried, you implemented all of that and nothing - nothing seems to be working!!! Arghhh!!
So you try harder and harder. Your shoulder gets tense, you go to sleep thinking about how you can solve this problem. Then you implement and you try and you try.... But you have tried for months!! Perhaps for years!! But you just can't seem to break past the barriers and you finally, finally surrender because you just don't know what to do anymore.
I know the feeling because there have been times in my life that I fell on my knees, hugging my dog, looking at the grass, starring up to the sky, the stars and breathing a prayer - and said "Dear God, please.. please... take over. I don't know what to do anymore..."
And it is often at such times when breakthrough happens. There is a saying and sayings are sayings because they are true "It is always darkest before dawn". I am not sure if that is true as in the physical sense coz I am always fast asleep before dawn LOL.
But laughing matters aside, I have the experience of surrendering (a particular problem in my life) recently - I wanted to share with you the moment I surrender I felt tremendous immense relief!!
It's like I don't carry the burden anymore and I finally just LET GO and LET GOD.
WHAT A RELIEF!!
I wanted to share this because I know so often we struggle, we hang onto things and ways of doing things and get into all the stress and anxieties that we forget that we have a higher power. Truly have a higher power that takes care of us. Who will see us through. So comforting ...
I am sharing this because despite all the successes I have had in my life, it isn't because I am this perfect human who have it all. I am not. I do have my struggles and when I am able to triumph through my struggles, I could write about it and talk about the miracles that took place and then share it with you.
In fact, it wasn't just relieved, what I asked for - I received!!. My prayers have been answered. :-) And you can do that too. I want you to know that at the darkest moment of struggle, be it a dream job, sales, career advancement etc Just when you think you have done it all and struggled and strive. And nothing happened. That I want you to remember...
Remember, SOMEONE is looking out for you. God is looking out for you. No matter what religion you are or if you believe simply a higher self or whatever your word is - the universe. It does not matter. God is looking out for you.
If you can simply come to a place of surrender, and just humbly say - "I don't know how to do this" Show me, guide me and trust that God will provide a way - then miracles happened and the way and the door is opened.
It always seemed to hard to surrender because our logical mind or is it just our ego which gets in the way? Whatever it is for you, I understand how hard it is to surrender. In fact, I don't think it's hard. More often than not, it's because we forget. So we continue to struggle and strive and get ourselves all stressed out.... And we wonder, why things are not working.
Wonder no more. Surrender. Period.
I experienced this today where my prayers are answered because I surrendered. I am in gratitude, so so much gratitude that my heart just expanded and expanded. If I can draw a picture now, my heart would look like it has expanded beyond my body and filling up all the space in the room I am in. Yes, that's how it feels like figuratively speaking. I am so glad that I surrendered. So right now - I keep saying Thank You Thank You and Thank You. Remember, gratitude is the key ingredient to having miracles happening in your life.
So what's the 2 step process ?
But hold on. It isn't a process. I am writing this as a process to those of you who have a logical mind and think that you need a process. But in actual fact, it is a state of being that you need to be in. Especially for those of you out there who are constantly in a struggle. I urge you - SURRENDER. And you will see the path miraculously opened up for you.
BELIEVE. ACT. TRUST.
If you are struggling to surrender, I want you to know that if you would like help, I can help you personally to chart a path that isn't of struggle, but flow and ease. We all need a little help sometimes and here is where I come in. You see, a state of being isn't about implementing a process. If it is, you could have just read a book and it will work but it is really more than that and that's when coaching comes in. You need to be guided to a state of being that is able to open up to miracles. To the realm of miracles. Coz from this place is where abundance flow.
I want to remind you that I do have a promotion which I am guided to put together for you. This promotion expires 28 Feb and is only available for the first 10 person who applies.

It's complimentary and you are calling to explore if we are a good fit to work together and if I can help you. It is my sincere wish that everyone knows how to do this, the path of flow and ease and I hope you are one of them.
Cheers and talk to you soon.
First of all - let me clear the NO 1 myth. Coaching isn't training. Training is when you attend say a 2 to 3 day workshop and normally with a group of people. You don't get personal attention. There are classroom activities but you don't get to share your specific stories and get specific help throughout the entire workshop or class.
Coaching is personalised and individually tailored to you. You get to bring your issues, your stories, your specific challenges and the coach works with you on your agenda. There is no pre-defined classroom agenda because the work is really around your core issues and what is your agenda. So in summary, it's your agenda that the coach is going to work on.
2nd myth. You must be doing terribly which is why you need coaching. Far from true. People who are doing well are those who would reach out for coaching because they are usually driven, ambitious, and accomplished but would want to level up. People who are serious about up-leveling would consider coaching.
The main reason you should care or even give a hoot is because the sort of transformational excellence you received and up-level is nothing short of stupendous. It is an awesome experience, both for the person being coached and the person who is coaching.
The shift that takes place last for life! And the investment is small if you truly realise the life changing transformation coaching delivers.
I know because having coached my clients and seeing their lives transformed has given me great great satisfaction.
Many of you are probably wondering so how does coaching works?
Well, coaching does not necessary need to be in person ie face to face. It is just as effective. My coaches are usually from overseas so we do via skype and believe me - it isn't less effective.
So long as you can connect - listen via skype, FB messenger, over phone - does not matter. Obviously it's best if we can do video coaching - the best coz there is more connection but audio works just fine.
OK. I just thought I wanted to post this as I get question like - oh - you are a trainer. No - I am not. I am a coach and I get like a blank stare....
I could certainly do a workshop and train but then the effect and impact isn't as great. You only touch the surface in a training and a workshop. That does not mean I don't like workshops and training and I think it isn't good. Just that coaching is really a level up.
You get to level up from the inside out. The coach is helping you discover you. That's really it. It's not a one sided job. You need to be an active participant and do what it takes as well.
It's just that for most people really do not realise how much coaching helps - because you can't help yourself. No - I don't mean you are helpless. But let me give this analogy. It's just that there are situations in your life - it would seem like you are in the quicksand. You are sinking. You know that you need help so you can either think to yourself, I am sinking in a quicksand and either I call for help or I should just try to lift myself out of the quicksand.
I think you know the answer...
Being in a quicksand every now and then does not mean you are broken. It just mean you are human and you - like all of us - need a little bit more help at certain times in our lives.
That's when a coach comes in handy....
I hope I have explained enough about coaching etc etc... If you have any questions, please feel free to comment below. Ask your questions and I can help to answer
As usual, I want to remind you of my special offer which is super awesome and cool to help you to up-level and really rock it in your career and business.
CLICK THE BELOW LINK to apply for a complimentary discovery call.
It's complimentary and we are merely exploring whether we would be a good fit to work together. Speak soon and wishing you all success - stupendous success in all areas of your life.
Create your awesome life - by design.
Believe. Act. Trust.
When was the last time you decided to do something? Setting an intention and making a decision is important because it's that decision that is going to propel you to success.
I was just sitting down and thinking of all my past successes in life and I realised from being able to speak fluently in English to scoring As to hitting my 4-figure mark by the time I reached 21 years old to hitting my 10K month, then onto 20K month and so forth was a decision.
I decided to do so. And it came to pass.
So I would encourage you to make a decision. What is it that you want to achieve in your life today? It may be something small like going for a short getaway to getting that huge promotion or closing that huge sales because you want that commission.
As a business owner now, I realised that I have been a little not so strict with my decision for hitting a certain figure. I have been saying to myself that yeah... let me hit this figure but I knew for the past 1.5 months that it was something I wanted to do but it was not a burning desire.
A desire if not burning is not going to work. (arghh... I know that. But knowing in your head and not in your heart doesn't work either)
I preached this to my clients and I know it deep within my heart as I have been doing this at various points in my life. Then today it struck me. What did I do - yes - one has to remind oneself often. Which is why personal development is an ever expanding and lifelong process. One which I urge you to be really vigilant about without which it is so easy to fall into dismal and despair. Which is why you have so many people going around complaining and whining and not really taking the action and responsibility for their lives.
I need to decide. What is it that I want to achieve.
I mean really really decide as opposed to wishful thinking or trying to see if it works etc.
I clearly recall after chasing a huge deal for 2 years, I decided in August 2015 that I want to close the deal by Sep 2016 and I did. I don't think I chanced upon a coach. It was my decision that I wanted to do close the sale and that made all the difference.
And so I urge you. Do you have a certain goal now that you want to reach. Some sales, job promotion etc that you really really want?
No - I mean really really want. Not a wish. Not a nice to have but actually I don't know how to do this but I will try and see how it goes. I am not talking about something like that.
I want to remind you that you need to be really in a position of DECISION. That you WANT, really WANT to make it happen. Guess what? Once you start doing that, then it will happen because the universe has to match your thoughts and desires.
So go decide what it is that you want to make happen and make it happen.
Don't be derail. Like if you see so and so doing a certain thing and thinking - oh - why it isn't happening for me. Well, stop focusing on anyone and anything outside yourself. You need to make a decision and once you do that, the universe will match your vibration and will bring to you circumstances, resources, situation and opportunities that is in alignment with you and that suits you.
And if you need help in doing so, we all need help at some point in our lives, I want to remind you that I have a special promotion going that is truly awesome. It's expiring 28 Feb so make sure you go for it and reach out to me for a complimentary discovery call.

Don't wait. EXIPIRING 28 FEB 2017.
By the way, the call is complimentary so you don't have to worry. It's a call to explore if you are keen.
To your success!! Not just outer success but success that is oozing with joy and peace and all that satisfying... Which is exactly why I have created this business and do this work. The work that can help to transform lives - your live, from the inside out.
Today I woke up feeling totally at peace and contented.
Loving the world, loving myself and just feeling a tingling sensation all over.
In the month of January I have been feeling an undercurrent of panic. Does this resonate? Deep panic – like deep inside your core but everything seems ok on the outside – or so it seemed. To the world as well as even to yourself.
Then I told myself that I should stop panicking and worrying coz everything is OK. Nothing has gone wrong and the present is GOOD. I tell this and hear this all the time. I coached my clients not to panic. That even in the midst of the storm, or seeming storm that it’s OK. That one should bask in the present moment. But I couldn’t. I tell myself intellectually but I could not get this to sink in and anchor deep inside my being.
I think you know what I am talking about.
If you are running a business and things are not seemingly going the way that you want or if you are chasing your quotas to close sales and things are not working out like you would like it to or if you are looking for that dream job and it does not seem like you are ever going to get that job.
I do intense personal development on myself so I am constantly self-aware as a coach. But as with everything in my life in recent years – I bounced back up quite quickly. And the reason for the bounce back?
Let me take you thru the process so that you can apply this too in whatever stages in your life that you are facing now.
Sometimes I asked myself whether people would even pay attention to what I am saying in terms of how IMPORTANT mindset is. Because it is. Without which you literally cannot move past your own blocks and boundaries.
Success isn’t about knowing the steps of what needs to be done. External processes and methodologies are foundation steps. Knowing what needs to be done – it gets things done but to quantum leap and break past barriers. It’s really about the process of removing blocks from yourself, from deep within so you can grow bigger. Bigger than you can even imagined.
You are destined to do great things. And somehow because we are so caught up with the external and what is going wrong and how in a human way we can achieve things that we often go back to survival mode of striving.
And that this not the natural mode. Not the mode that can catapult you to success.
You can do so much more if you only know how to tap into yourself and grow. Coz your business can only grow as big as you are. Your career too can only grow as big as you are.
Need help in breaking the blocks and barriers within yourself. Want to grow so that your career and business can grow?
