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 […]

Concept of 50-50: all things in life are 50% positive and 50% negative. 

Sometimes I ask people what do they want, and they say, I want to be happy.  But what does this really mean?  Does this mean you want to be happy all the time? I mean, if you’re happy all the time, then how do you actually know that you’re happy?  And do you actually want […]

Do you believe your story is worth sharing?

The truth is, posting about myself has been very triggering for me.  I’d been taught not to air out dirty laundry, whatever happens behind closed doors stay behind closed doors.  I’d been told to put myself together well before leaving the house, to show that I am capable.  I’d been told however good my result […]
