I am changing my facebook group name to STEPPING INTO YOUR SOUL ALIGNED PURPOSE IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP.
Why? Because as I reflected, the up-leveling your career was really a subset of my story. I was ambitious and I definitely wanted to climb the corporate ladder because I did'nt know of any other way or at least I did'nt think that entrepreneurship was even a possibility for me.
And in the last 30 years, it was a story of sheer grit and climbing the ladder but that has all changed. I got my calling to be a coach and transformed lives. That was 7 years ago but I had refused to step into the calling due to fears. It's not that I am without any fears now. I have decided to take the plunge.
And so my story now is really more aligned to stepping into my calling. Which is what I have done and which is what I would really want to help people with.
Being a transformative coach, and being in the IT line for so long, I know the power of the internet and there is no better way to reach out to the masses than via the internet.
So what I would really like to do now is to help professionals to start their dream business online while having a full time job. An online business can be created while having a fulltime job because again, that's the easiest to do and juggle between job and business.
Additionally, for soul aligned entrepreneur who are already in business and somehow is feeling a little lost because they are not nailing their niche or have clarity in business, this is where I come in to help.
I know how it is like when you are not fully aligned, both in career and in business. You are not in flow and you feel like you are stuck and your business can't grow. Actually that goes for everything in life. LOL
So that's what this group will be about moving forward. A place for entrepreneurs or aspiring entrepreneurs to come together and creating their dream business online and taking this out to the world by storm!!
If you would like to be a part of this, CLICK BELOW TO schedule YOUR DREAM BUSINESS Session to start your dream business online! A business that is aligned to your soul passion!

I don't talk about this much but the fact is I am a certified stylecoach and also a certified image consultant under Sheila Wong, Malaysia. So here goes.
I used to think that I will lead with my mindset stuff because really this is what I truly truly believe in. I believe that you create your reality and it's from the inside out. I don't just believe it. It's the story of my life.
Recently, I had my friend tell me that I should not do facebook live with a sleeveless t-shirt. You know what? I told her that I love being in my sleeveless t-shirt and I have people telling me they watched my video over and over again. So I am comfortable with my sleeveless t-shirt because I love sleeveless t-shirt and it's hot in Malaysia. I work from home and I can't possibly be dressing up in a suit at home!!!
However, that being said, if I were to meet with my corporate clients in an office, I will dress the part.
What a lot of people do with dressing and image is that they think they have to look a certain way and that people therefore need to look a certain way. A lot of it is a story you tell yourself or you bought into the story of what people tell you.
So looking a certain way isn't the answer. You first need to be YOU. I repeat. You need to be YOU. There is nothing more attractive for you to be you and to own you. Now, if you think you need to dress a certain way and that you need to listen to every critical voice out there, then you will be directionless because if you ask 10 people, I guarantee you, you will find different answers.
Did you hear what I just say? Or read LOL.
If you ask 10 people, you will get 10 different answers!!!!
So what do you do. You get to be YOU. Embrace YOU. BE YOU!!! In the way you dress. From the inside out and outside in....
There. That's image and branding for you. Basic 101.
And for those of you confuse as to why I am even writing about this topic is because I am getting a lot of request to do image and branding. Thus, I will start to do this. Does this jive with me and my message. Absolutely!!
Change occurs at 2 levels. In fact more but that's a subject of a different discussion. It can happen when you affect change to the way you look thus making you feel good on the inside. However, if you change on the inside, you will change the way you look on the outside. The outside in is not sustainable, but the inside out is super sustainable.
People of the corporate world is fixated with the outside in. I want to insist on a different way - the inside out. All success comes from the inside out and I insist that there is no better way.
Oops, back to image and branding. Is it important? Absolutely coz like it or not, people will look at you and judge you by how you look and present yourself. So you are your brand. You SHOUT YOUR BRAND!! Whether you realise it or not, you are SHOTING YOU!!
So it's best to realise it and make sure you take advantage of SHOUTING YOU. And that you don't shout the wrong message. We are sending messages everyday to people around us.
Are you sending the right message?

Your limiting beliefs runs your life whether you like it or not. This is what happened – a technique that I was taught and am sharing this with you.
The following is my beliefs about money and how I had my breakthrough…..
As I close my eyes to visualise I immediately saw a dark cloud and instantly I saw an image of myself in my teens waiting in the balcony for the “rotiman” or the bread man to come. Back in those days, there were many rotiman who would come in their bicycles or motorbike selling roti (bread).
Every day I would wait with only 15 cents to spare at 4pm. In my teenage days, I was constantly hungry… And when the rotiman came I would go down and buy the 15 cents coconut bread. Why coconut bread? Because it was filling and fit into my 15 cents budget.
I have never eaten coconut bread since my teenage days!!
Reason was my father was never making enough money and I lived most of the time in hunger. And that vision that I saw terrifies me. I felt an immediate pit in my stomach. Ever get that feeling? That’s the feeling of fear. And that’s the belief that is running you!
And it resonated, I spent most of my corporate life working and striving very hard because I was in fear. It propelled me to work really hard as that feeling of poverty gripped my stomach. I would NEVER want to go back to that place. EVER!!
The reason why I am telling you this story is because you too have limiting beliefs that runs you. IT RULES YOUR LIFE!! Make no mistake about it. And you function unconsciously because you don’t even know it’s there.
And if you take a look at your current state right now, it’s those beliefs that are running at the core that is the BOSS. You are not the boss. You think your thoughts are running your life? Think again. It’s your belief. That is why it is so hard to break the pattern and the habit of your life and you keep seeing the same old stuff happening again and again.
Look, I did this stuff 7 years ago and had some limiting beliefs uncovered and was set free and my relationship with my spouse catapulted as a result of that episode. Then in 2015, I had the privileged of being set free from a few more limiting beliefs which has catapulted me once again to cause me to close the biggest sale in the history of my company and got my dream job.
What are your limiting beliefs?
Believe me when you set yourself free from your beliefs it’s almost like chains fell off you and more and more chains will fall off when you uncover more and more. In any individual, there are often layers and layers of beliefs.
Recently I had somebody told me he does not want to proceed with coaching because his sales dip by 80% and so he needs to start focusing on his sales. Actually the opposite is true, he needs it even more as his business needed a quantum leap.
And the only way to have a quantum leap is to set yourself free from your beliefs. That’s when you are not blocked. That’s when you will stop the self -sabotage and that’s when the money flows.
Do you want money to flow?
The first thing you need to do is to unclog the pipe. Your internal pipe. Can you do it all by yourself and figure out what your beliefs are? Highly unlikely. I don’t know of anyone who can do so for themselves. Even coaches need other coaches to coach them out of their limiting beliefs. It’s hard to see clearly when you are involved. You are often too muddled to know the difference.

Are you at a point in your life where you feel like you are afraid to make the next move because you feel you are not ready? And you end up with lots of excuses like you don't want to get that dream job or move up because you feel obliged to stay back in your hometown. That looks like a very valid excuse until you examine further what the real reason is for that excuse.
You are afraid to get help such as coaching because you are actually afraid of the person you will become when you actually take the step.
Whenever you are in a place of indecision, it's taunted by fears. Fears of the unknown. Fears that does not sound like fears but are actually excuses that you will make up to give yourself reasons not to decide.
So what are your fears? Are you perhaps afraid that when you make that move, that your business will not take off? Is that why you still cling on to a corporate job and continue to be miserable. Not everyone wants to start a business so I am talking to those who has such a desire. Know that they want to but are holding back.
So my point is whenever you are at the crossroads of indecision. It's held back by fears. And the only way to move forward and get the success and freedom you crave is to make a decision. A non-decision is also a decision. It just means that you don't want to do anything to change your life. You are still stuck in the current reality and mud. A mud that strangely most people love to cling to.
People actually love their mud because it is familiar. And although they are aware that things are not working and they want a change (like some faint distance echo that they barely recognise) but staying put feels good. It is familiar. Even though it hurts.
I never really understood this concept. I always thought that if you don't like your situation - change it coz you have the power to. Now being in coaching and speaking to so many people, I am beginning to realise that people are at the very core afraid of change. Any kind of change, even if it's the change for the better.
Ask yourself. Do you want to change? Or are you too afraid to step up because you are afraid. Even though you know that stepping up is actually good for you but still you are afraid and you give yourself many different excuses to camouflage the fears. Excuses are just camouflage. They are actually fears in disguise.
I can help you to step up. To create a new life. To change and become the person you want to be. To transform. Are you afraid to make that move? If you somehow actually want to but are still in indecision, I can help.

What's your why to doing what you are doing?
The WHY question is important. Lately, it seems like my clients are telling me that they feel lazy, not motivated especially when it comes to making calls to prospects. And if you are in sales, you know this feeling all too well.
So I will ask this question - what's your why? If you don't jump out of bed feeling excited and motivated to do the things you do - and I mean largely your job or God forbid, your business. Then why do you even do it?
Dragging your feet in your job isn't a great place to be. And if you are in sales, you can't possibly close sales or generate sales if you are dragging your feet or simply feeling low and demotivated.
I guess if you are in sales - especially the energy required for sales is an upbeat energy, not the lazy, I wish I don't have to go and see that client energy. Because guess what, if you don't feel like seeing the client. Then she/he will feel your energy and there will be no sale....
The other interesting thing that I noticed is that insurance agents, at least those whom I have been speaking to anyway - tell me that they do not like what they are doing. It's not their passion and they do it for the money and it's a job.
I find this super interesting ...
I guess if you want to choose a vocation, and one such as being an insurance agent, it's practically your own business and you don't actually like it?.....
I do know lot's of people who do things/business because of the money. And money in itself as a motivation, contrary to popular believe, isn't going to get you the results you desire.
Coz money in itself is an object. Just MONEY. PERIOD.
But what is it that you associate money with? That's what will drive you to achieve your results you crave. That's what I have to say for now...
If you like what you are reading, and if you would like to work with me on a 1-1 basis. I offer personal coaching where I can help you obtain and achieve the desires that you crave for such as sales or a dream job.
The work we do is deep work - coz you are not just a sales machine or an employee, you are a whole person. Which is why every other aspect of you affects the way you do something in one area. It cannot be compartmentalize. Although, we seem to think that we can.... This subject is a topic for another discussion.

Have you ever been faced with challenges and then you tell yourself you will figure it out. And you are so dead bent on figuring it out and sorting this out because it's well - not working.
I remember when I was a programmer eons ago that I would spent days solving a programming code or bug and it was intense. I am not usually one who would ask for help so I would literally spent hours upon hours - sometimes even dreaming of codes LOL and I actually do get some of my solution to my programming problems in my sleep!! Yes - this is a topic for another day. Solutions in your sleep....
Back to the topic on figuring it out. So that's essentially me and back to now. With my internet business, I tend to have technical challenges that needs to be resolved or tweaking stuff etc and it does get intense figuring out what to do and how to do it technically. I am not exactly technically challenged as I have my background eons ago as a programmer but still... that was a long time ago and sometimes it is frustrating.
What I have learned lately is to be more open for help. Like in the past, I spent lots of time figuring things out myself, spent days in frustration solving a problem when actually, there is always help available. I was just to proud to reach for help.
And now I do - I mean when I can't figure things out on my own, I will reach for help and the strange thing is - when the student is ready - the teacher appears. So I have had help in many different forms - sometimes its my colleagues - if I was back in corporate, but lately its really help in many different forms - people I know. My mentors, coaches.
Btw, I do have many coaches - even right now. As a coach - you need constant coaching as well as you need to be constantly developing yourselves in so many different areas.
Well, the moral of the story. You don't have to figure out on your own. And really sometimes - it's hard to figure things out that you don't even know. My famous quote is
"You don't know what you don't know"
so how do you figure out if your sales presentation is good enough or your convincing skill is at top notch.
How do you figure out if you had make any mistakes in that interview when you don't even know you had made a mistake? So my point is - you really don't know ... and unless you have someone - a coach to guide you. You will never really know.
You don't know if you are doing it right in the first place. And in the case of a sales presentation - the opportunity is gone. Same with interviews. In cases like these, you can't afford to waste time to figure it out on your own. You need help to course correct and to course correct quickly so that you perfect the skills to optimise success.
That's when a coach comes in handy...

No need to figure it out yourself. You get the help you need. And you will be surprised, the investment in a coach - the return is well - 200% or more! Surprise?
Refer to this article on coaching from Life Coach Training. Because how can you put a figure to happiness? How much would you associate the cost of being happy and joyful? It cannot be measured. It's more than being able to get that job promotion which gives you $X amount or close the sale which gives you $Y amount.
Coaching is holistic and elevate you to the next level. It is transformational. You become a much better version of yourself, happier, confident, and standing in your power to take on the world. Now how much is that worth?
The problem isn't outside of you.
Every time you feel unhappy or feel like the world is out to get you. Like maybe you feel like your colleagues, your boss, your in-laws, your spouse or whoever is hell bent on getting at you or making life difficult for you. You are mistaken. It's not them. It's you.
Difficult to swallow?
The reason why the problem isn't outside of you is because you are the universe and your outer reality is merely a mirror reflection of what is going on inside you. If you do intense personal development, this isn't something new. For those of you who are new to this concept, you will probably want to choke by now.
Wait a minute!! My problems are created by me? But wait. That colleage of mine is an absolute idiot!! I hate the very sight of him and in fact I find him totally repulsive. Hahaha... know why I can say that? I said the same thing and I recalled that there is one particular individual that I really hated at work and I can write an entire book about just how horrible and nasty he is.
But by now, I do know that the problem wasn't with him. Believe me, if you had told me when I was working in that particular company and I was needing to face him and inevitably having to interact with him, I would find it superbly hard to believe that the problem was with me!! Like what??? It's him. Surely???
To the present moment, yesterday I had a particularly hard time with a certain individual and I was wondering why. This morning it struck me. I get all my insights in the morning when I meditate, give thanks and the works.
So it struck me that I had a certain thinking about the individual and it has then caused such a reaction without me being very conscious of it. See, how just a little thought ,when unchecked can escalate into so many unpleasant circumstances. And these are usually not obvious. Until I checked in, I would not know. And if I had not had the level of consciousness I have now, I would certainly think the problem is all with the other person and the relationship would have just gone worst and worst.
I know all these that I have said are easier said than done and it is very very hard especially when you are feeling so infuriated that you almost feel like you want to fume and stream and whatever is your thing when you get mad.
I can assure you that life does not have to be like that. It takes practice. Takes discipline. You can have a life that is smooth and easy with colleagues, bosses and if you need help, CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW FOR A 1-1 DISCOVERY SESSION WITH ME:
Feeling nourished, supported and loved is a feeling that is severely lacking in society today. If you are feeling the lack right now, I assure you, it is not because you are strange.
It is quite normal for people to feel that way, at least the norm of this world. I for one feel this way. I guess you know what I am talking about, the deep inner knowing, that we are taken care of no matter what.
As I was doing my morning meditation and visualisation today, I visualised that I was on a stage, receiving my accolate, and I was filled with a feeling of joy and I realised the feeling I wanted was being loved, supported and nourished.
Don't we all?
At we get some level of support, from our spouse. My husband is wonderful and supportive, my relatives, I have friends who are superbly supportive from all over the world! So I am blessed. But what I am talking about here is really knowing that you are being supported.
It's like if ever you are in destitute, with no money, no nothing - will you still feel supported? Will you be able to know and have complete faith that God/Divine/Universe is there for you. The universe has your back. You are supported.
I find that many many people I speak to have this issue, and a lot of the fears and anxiety comes from this point - where you feel that you need to struggle and work really really hard coz if you don't , hey - hell will break loose.
Or you kind of have this feeling that you really need to work it out, sort things out all on your own because - well, you are on your own. You better get your shit together else you will suffer the consequences.
Although I have always depended on God to support me and lean on Him, I don't think I have ever really believed 100% in my heart that the Universe is taking care of me. That I am nourished, supported and loved - completely.
It has been a journey and as I trust more and more and get into the knowledge of God loving me totally and unconditionally and that I am supported, loved, nourished. I feel so much at peace. Feel so much loved.
Most of us don't have this feeling 100%. But to get to that place really is a practice, my friend. It is a practice of seeking the Divine and getting into a place where you are 100% sure. Like deep in your heart and soul and being to know that. Wow! You know what - if you reached that stage, it's where it is a place of total freedom. No fear. Completely fear free and driven by faith.
No matter what your religion is and what you perceived as God, it is the same concept. If you feel that you are alone and you are doing it on your own. It feels desolate.
You want miracles in your life? Well, stepping into the full knowing and being that you are completely supported is where miracle takes place. BIG MIRACLES. WONDERS takes place.

Feeling lousy is a choice.
Yes. Everything in life is a choice and that includes feeling lousy. Do you feel at times like you are like banging your head against the wall, where things are not working out and you get all stressed out and anxious and you start to feel really lousy, bad, depressed?
You can change all that - in fact instantly!
You may be saying well - easy for you to say coz everything is going well for you. But no - everything is NOT ALWAYS going ok. It's not possible if you are living on this earth and you are human.
But the fact is you can make a choice in the matter. YOUR FEELINGS!
Why so? Because if you really ask yourself and ask your logical mind about this. What if you are feeling bad? Does that change anything? Say you wake up and you start to think how bad things really are and you kind of like feel down in the dumps. Would that really help? Like would things become better because you are feeling down in the dumps?
You don't feel good and things are not BETTER. In fact, things gets worst. People, situation and circumstances. For example, you may start to scream at your children or your spouse and snap at your colleagues. You get the picture.
So when things aren't going well and you are tempted to feel lousy and bask in the feelings of lousiness (is there such a word? LOL) Then I would suggest you ask yourself this. My behaving and feeling lousy - does that change my environment and circumstance for the better?
And if it does'nt help anything at all, you have a choice. A choice to feel grateful for all the wonderful things that are happening in your life. A choice to make the best of the present situation. And that is to switch your bad feelings to good positive feelings which btw - will change everything. That's when opportunities comes to you and people are attracted to you.
Logical Reason: Because you are pleasant to be with and generally people are attracted to people who are pleasant and nice. And also because you are not so muddled up with your feeling of despair that you see opportunities. Like actually notice and see opportunities! You naturally can't if you are stressed out and anxious.
That's the tip for today.
If you would like to know more about how to attract opportunities, situation and people into your life and create your own reality, have an amazing life that mostly other people dream of, click the link below for a FREE discovery call.
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.

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.
