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.
CLICK THE LINK BELOW FOR YOUR 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?

I am a firm believer in massive action.
I am sure you are too. If you are in my tribe, you are driven, you are passionate and you just love love to take action!! All the time!! Not just any action but guided actions for massive gigantic results!!
I am totally type A.
Yes, coz I can’t sit still. When I was in corporate – I cannot be in the office for 2 days in a roll without being out there and being in action. I simply would just feel bored. What I tend to do is fill up all my calendar with meetings and just about everything!!! I hate facials because I stay still for 3 hours doing NOTHING! That’s just completely boring to me! Arghh…
I enjoy meeting people and just being out there so I would just be AT IT!! But don’t get me wrong. I do not take actions simply because it was a to do list or I do it coz it’s something I have to do. I love doing what I do and every step of the way (well almost) is guided action.
I am constantly guided to do the “right” thing. The next steps. Like I would be prompted on who to call and what to do.
I do that more now as an entrepreneur and I am completely tuned in after my success in closing my 1 Million USD sales. YES!! Because it is the guided actions that will take you somewhere!! Get results. Close the long overdue sales and create SUCCESS in your life. Not the mindless to do list!!
It’s not just merely guided action. Like man – I am FULL ON!
I don’t drive around without listening to a podcast or an audio download. I am constantly working on my business or I am listening to someone who has made it so I can learn how to do my business better or I am into listening to some self-development guru speaks because I want to be constantly learning to up-level my skills and more importantly to up-level ME.
My question to you. Are you ambitious? Driven? Do you want success? Is it non-negotiable? If the answer is YES, YES and YES!!!
Then TAKE ACTION!! UP-LEVEL YOU!!
Life doesn’t just happen. There is no point in complaining and whining that things are not working out or you are not getting the results you desire. Focusing on what is not going right as in “Why am I not closing sales as I should be” or “I set out to achieve 1 million but I am only doing 500K, why?” “Why can’t I get my dream job?”.
If you can’t find the answers why then perhaps you should be looking at an answer that isn’t the norm.
What I teach isn’t the norm. It is totally revolutionary. It isn’t about some motivational course you go to and then you get all psyche up and excited and then back to old reality.
NO – I want to help you change your reality!!!
And you can! If you would only take action!!
Everything is about action taking. You want to get that sale? What does it start with? Picking up the phone and talking to your prospects, right? Then build the relationship and then ya da ya da ya da..
Hey – you know how to do this stuff. But why isn’t what you are doing working as well as you would like it to work? Because you need to take massive action. And massive guided action. If you don’t know how to take guided actions, then I would encourage you to take that first leap of faith and learn something so totally revolutionary that it would completely blow your mind.
This is what I talk about in my launch – the event that I will be making available shortly for sale. For a small investment, you can get a sneak peek into how all this works. And start taking action to implement it!! Cool?
You may ask why am I going on and on about massive guided actions. That’s because that’s the only way, well one of the way that you can achieve the success you desire.
Do you desire to have things work out smoothly in your life? That it does not feel like you are swimming up against the current? Do you want to be in FLOW? Like completely be guided to do the right thing, meet the right people and say the right things to the right people? Coz if you do that, your results will SKYROCKET!!!
So here is a guided action for you. Check into yourself. Why are you reading this? There is a purpose that you signed up and you are being shown a completely new way of thinking. Doing. Living....
Here is the sneak peek of the event :

And watch out for the actual sale soon…
Did I get your attention?
OK. Good. Back to the main topic.
I wanted to transform lives. This is my mission as I stepped away from the corporate world. So I got this idea that I will do a little launch - in a cozy place and get the whole thing recorded. That just happened. Last Sunday 15 Jan and it was all that I dream of - nice crowd, great ambiance, everything was almost perfect.
I recorded the event as I am cognizant of the fact that I only have a place that can fit 15 pax and the world needs to know about the message. SO DONE.
And I wanted it to be so affordable that most people will be able to afford this and would not hesitate to purchase it. Yes. I think $37 is affordable. Not exactly cheap but affordable. In any case if I had AFFORDABLE as a tagline, I would not have caught your attention!!! LOL
I have people asking me what is the recording all about. So I even did some clipping of the event so you can actually watch it and get a FEEL of it. Yes. A feel is always good. A picture paints a thousand words and a video? Probably a million words.... I just coined a phrase. ;-)
I have got quite a lot of topics covered albeit only within 3 hours. I am going to list it down here just so you get the gist of it. This is from memory so here goes
- everything is energy
- words are powerful and can impact molecules of water
- limiting beliefs
- purpose & passion
- and the works!!
It actually does'nt help even if I list down everything. Coz the bottom line is - will you practice the tools and techniques taught OR are you merely going to watch the video and forget about it the next day.
Practice is KEY.
But obviously, knowing the concepts is a start. Its better than not knowing just like exercising once a week is better than not exercising at all. So will it help. Definitely. Is this somehow going to miraculously help you win the $1 Million lottery. I don't know... I don't focus nor do I teach people about winning lottery....
So what am I really trying to do here is this. I want to give you an awareness that you have never known before. I want to educate you so you know that you can and have the power to change your life and can create your life by design. I did not mention sales or dream job yet - but of course. I used these techniques to achieve my USD 1 Million sale and got my dream job.
CREATE YOUR REALITY. LIFE BY DESIGN.
Can the tools and techniques be used to create other realities - such as attracting the right man or woman - definitely although please do not come and ask me about this. This isn't my focus. I don't want to be teaching people how to do this. Just not my cup of tea... But the same tools and techniques do apply.
If you are dying to find out what is in the course content. I will be doing a proper page to describe the contents, benefits and the works. That's later. For now, I want to share with you the video clip.
You will get an idea of what this is all about and I know you would enjoy it as much as I do.
Links as below:
P/S: I was told somewhere that I shouldn't be posting so many articles in a week. I don't really care.... The number of blogs and post I do far exceeds the so called "QUOTA". But I am getting more and more that it isn't about the SHOULD and the MUST DO .
Another thing I want to encourage you to do. Stop the SHOULD and MUST DO.
If you love to post. Then post. Unless you hate it - then don't do it. And please I don't mean you can do anything and start doing mean things like hurting animals and people. That's not what I mean at all...
Do what makes your heart sings! And shine your light....
Shine your light with love and there are no rules... I think you get the drift...
I guess you can tell by now I don't like rules...
Anyway - that is a subject for another post.
Ciao... Remember to watch the video clips!!
I have a confession to make. I was excitedly preparing for the event on 15 Jan. Excited because this is my "virgin event" ;-) The first in 2017 as I have just stepped away from the corporate world to the entrepreneurial world.
As you have noticed, I posted and posted quite a bit about the event the week before and it's essentially to promote the pre-order that I have made available. It seemed like a great idea. A PRE-ORDER.
In any case, although I was promoting it and was half wishing that it would do well and that I would have lots of people wanting it, in reality I promoted half heartedly. I was at some deep level not believing that it will fly off. Like I was thinking - its a pre-order, who would buy a pre-order?
Plus I was worried deep inside that the recording will not work properly because I bought a brand new Sony to record the event and although we tested it out and being a Sony camera everything was great about it - no complains - I was really not sure. It was a 3 hour event. I was not sure if the battery will last or whether the camera will overheat during the recording. (gosh! you get the drift?)
So you see. All this energy did not resulted in me selling lots of my pre-order. In fact I did sell it and guess what - I was actually taken by surprise when the order came in!!! LOL
So what am I trying to tell you. I am trying to say that when you intend for something to happen and deep inside you have so many different worries and stories about what might or might not happen, it doesn't work.
When you intend on something. Anything at all and I know you want sales, a dream job, the works and if you are doing that and at the same time thinking at some level that it will not work. Then IT WOULD'NT.
I teach this stuff right? And I still fell under the trap. Intention with stories and half heartedness. In any case, fast forward to the actual event. It was superb. I had a wonderful time and so did the participants.
As far as the actual event was concerned, I did not have any story at all. In fact, I prepared for the event with all my heart and I knew I will aced it. I love to present. I love events and presentation so it was a piece of cake. In fact, every time I stand in front of a crowd - I feel energized. Charged up and I am at my best.
So I was not worried about the event nor the presentation. I did not fuss about whether the food will be good. I knew we had a nice place and there was a little concern about the parking but it nothing really bothered me.
And as it turns out, it was super duper fantabulous. The content was excellent and people eyes were opened. They were just amazed at the information, insights, learnings that they got. I know what I have presented was so revolutionary that it kind of woke everyone up.
So there was good review. Good vibes. So yeah... I was/am satisfied.
And I realized that although such revolutionary techniques that I teach is pretty common in the West, the average Asian have no clue. And I am guessing the average Westerner has no clue too. So you are in for a treat. :-)
So moral of the story? When you set an intention. DO NOT DOUBT. And it will FLY.
I will be selling the actual recording. YESSSSSS...!! Now that it is ready and it is all wow - fabulous. And everything is clear. I am so glad that I can now actually with a great relief post this for sale. :-)
When I open this for sale, it will be only $37. No more 30 minutes coaching thrown in. That's gone!!! And I have received tons of mails asking to extend the date for the pre-order. So no pre-order. The actual order and I will be opening the recorded event for sale soon.
THE MINDSET SECRETS TO CLOSING DEALS - any deal? ;-)
No - not yet. I do have some stuff to do to make it all ready and will definitely keep you guys/gals posted. But for now if you want a true sneak peek of the event recording and I do have something to show now, here are the links:
YOU WILL LOVE IT!!
I am writing this cognizant of the fact that we are at the end of the week. Our first week of year 2017. In truth, I am a little exhausted over the excitement of this week being my first week as an entrepreneur. It feels exhilarating and I feel my cells tingling with excitement. I could not remember when was the last time I felt like this. True freedom. Living my purpose.
So I am writing to you to urge you to live your purpose. Yes, even in a job you can live your purpose - or close to it.
You need to do what makes your heart sings.
You may be thinking you cannot do that if you are in a corporate job. But you can. And if you are not truly doing what makes your heart sings, how would it even feel like a dream job. How in the world you can close sales when you don't believe in what you are doing and enjoying it.
You see, if you are doing it from the perspective of "you should" so you can bring in the money and the income, then you are in survival mode. There is really very little joy and thus, at this level, you cannot generate abundance. True abundance fills you with joy.
If you truly want abundance, it has to start from the heart and where you do work that feels aligned to who you are. I can almost hear you protesting. That is not what a job is supposed to be. I did not say a job. If you are merely working in a job for survival and existence, it is a very sorry state to be in.
Before you stop reading the mail, let me share with you my story. I, too was once like this. The should have, and the should do. I studied computer science and I came from a poor family. At the time, I did not even know what computer science meant and how a career in computer science would be like.
In any case, I graduated and could not afford to change my course (or so I thought). I spent the initial years of my life doing things I do not like doing. In fact, I absolutely dislike it but I make myself do it. It was programming. Long hours at the desk and trying to code, debug and test repeatedly tore at my soul. But I did not realise it at that time.
As time progress, things got better and I started to enjoy my job more as I step into management role, having more interactions with people, which is actually my strength and what I love doing.
Still I was in the end user environment and it was very operational. I was doing a lot of the back end work in the IT world. Things were better but it was still chipping at my soul. I constantly feel bored inside.
I am a late bloomer and it was only 6 years ago that I have a wake up call and switched back to the vendor line, where I was doing presales, sales, work with partners and that's when my world changed. I loved doing this sort of work predominantly because I love interacting with different people everyday and variety is the main course of the day.
I am telling you this story because I don't want you to spent many many years like me doing things you don't absolutely love. You should switch. You owe it to yourself to switch to something you love and be aligned with your passion and purpose. Or at least aligned with your interest and the innate skills that you are born with. God did not design you with talent so you can do something completely different.
The other reason I am telling you this is because the crux of the matter is, can you really do well in sales or have a dream job or do anything for that matter and be excellent in it when it is not align to who you truly are?
The truth is - you can't.
So do yourself a favor - if you are not align - do something about it. Time is a resource when gone cannot be reclaim. Every other commodity can be created or made but not time.
Value your time. Value yourself.

Well, today is the 2nd day of the year of 2017. I have a message for you . This is a new year after all and we have 2016 behind us. Welcome 2017!!!
It is important that we start with a clean slate. Easier said than done but do take the time to reflect on what has happened. Has the year been good? Bad? For most of us, it’s pretty much a mix of the good and the bad. I think it was Bob Proctor who says “Harvest the good, ignore the bad”. Do not carry with you the bad stuff.
Let the cycle complete.
If some parts of 2016 has been winter for you, then reflect on the good it has done for you. Winter is when the roots go deep. Winter is a time of learning. I am cognizant of the fact that as I write this, for most of us in Asia, it’s more like summer all year round. But that’s ok. We all know the seasons – summer, fall, winter, spring.
For me, 2016 has been a great year, for the most part. I started my regional job, traveling and staying in 5 star hotels, met many interesting and nice people. Great relationships were formed and I have the best colleagues ever in my life with great pay and a fulfilling job to match. Could not have asked for more!
Then winter striked! My dad passed away in July. I was depressed and could hardly function for 2 months. I have many questions. A time of deep reflection and that’s when I suspect my roots grow without me even realising it.
By September, I bounced back and bounced back I did! For the first time in my life, I finally acknowledged my calling and took my online business seriously. Yes, and that is why I am writing to you after 7 years of resisting the calling to be a coach. I have many fears… Don’t we all?
And I took the next step and the next and the next and here I am – superbly excited to serve. My mission? To transform lives. It is my hope and dream that I could impart something to the world – and yes that means you.
Back to you. As you reflect on your year, take time to complete episodes that needs to be completed and harvest only the gold to bring it forward to the new year. A brand new 2017!! It's so important. Take out a piece of paper and write - or type away. You will be surprised at the release it will bring as you complete and release the bad and harvest the gold :-)
Would you like to make this year special. Do you want help? Need help perhaps? Make this a special year where you achieve heights you have never achieved before.
I encourage you to check out the one-on-one program that I have developed and arrange for a discovery call with me.
You will be amazed at your own transformation at the end of the 3 months of us working together.
