Dec is just around the corner, and this year, it seems like the holidays is upon us faster than ever! One of the things that I come across A LOT when chatting with other people is, “holiday obligations”. Needing to be a certain way. Must do certain things. Because “I have to”. Here’s what usually […]

Embracing your fear (to do what you really want)

I had the opportunity of hosting a workshop for Mothers to Daughters, and had a chance to share my knowledge about fear with others.  Most of the times, I find that if there is something we really want to do but if we haven’t done it yet, it’s most likely because of fear.  But we […]

Have you ever said you’d do something but you didn’t, and you beat yourself up? 

And have you ever felt so tired, but you still muscled your way through to keep pushing on?  I got sick for the past few days, and I didn’t get a chance to compose my blog for 2 days.  I promised myself that I’d write 1 blog post every day in the month of November.  […]

Obstacles in Your Life are not there to Define You! They're meant for you to Overcome!

Recently, I saw a video of this Chinese girl who was trying to logically state her case against her dad’s request for doing more homework.  First of all, I had to applaud her, because I can’t even speak this eloquently against my parents. And I’m sure many kids and adults who’d endured through this “pressure” […]

How I started coaching 

Since I was young, I’d always wondered what my life purpose is. I kept feeling like I was meant for more, but I felt trapped by my circumstances. Like I wish I could follow and be amongst the people who are “making it”, so that I can find out what makes them successful. But I […]

Have you ever feel like you’re constantly doing things you don’t want to do? Are you usually concerned about how other people will perceive you?  These are sign of people-pleasing tendencies.  Before I go in depth about people-pleasing, I’d like to share with you how it is developed.  People pleasing comes from how we interact […]
