Be Who You Are

Many are scared to show their talents, skills, or to stand out unique as they are. They fear judgement, ridicule, labels, being discriminated upon, or thought of as ‘strange’. My client was on the heavy side, a genius, loved to dance, and was gay. He was so scared that he tried everything he could ..following well-meaning advise ‘not to stand out’ or ‘just lay low and blend’. He slopped into anxiety, lost friends, became vigilant, and closed off himself. After months of work, he designs a poster, thankful that he can now herald and be proud of all that he is. Effective coaching engagements free people to be their best selves —acknowledge who they are, live authentically, live never ever again to cower in the dark.

Thinking Abundance Helps to Create Abundance

Scarcity mentality

Scarcity mindset or scarcity mentality in simplest terms is the belief that you will never be or have enough –whether its money, food, emotions —and as a result, you are always feeling like you lack. When we are at a position of lack, our minds are actually less efficient. A mind that believes there is less has less capacity for problem-solving, less time to do other things in life, less time for relationships, less time for work. Having a scarcity mentality makes us more concerned over a few elements in our lives resulting in a lack of room for other things in the periphery. To reduce feelings of scarcity, we can give ourselves some slack time —do not pack days too tightly that there is no time for family events, no time for the sweetheart, no time to enjoy an ice cream cone in the park or take care of unaccounted for eventualities like a car breakdown. How to create slack time? By intentionally keeping pockets of unaccounted-for time in our calendar…sort of ‘having a meeting with myself’ entry. By the intentionality alone, we are messaging ourselves that ‘yes, I am enough, and I am worthwhile’

Reflection Question:
Did you your best today to be happy, content, and thankful for all that you are and have?

Reflection in Action:
Eat a bowl of your favorite ice cream, laugh with a friend, do arts & crafts. Enjoy the simple things which mean much

Focus on Your Strengths When in Crisis

Covid-19 Challenge: Focusing on your strengths makes you more resilient

Focus on your strengths

We all have strengths: things we are good at; have thinking strategies that have to help us rebound; have personal traits (such as optimism, hopefulness, creativity, perseverance). We can use our strengths to help us through tough life events. Leading with our strengths helps us balance out the negative events by surmounting challenges using our own thinking, healthy coping behaviors, attitudes.

Reflection Question:
What do you like most about yourself? How many times have you used it the past weeks? What holds you back from using it with more frequency?

Reflection in Action:
Live your day manifesting your favorite personal strength

Take the assessment here to know your top 5 strengths:

Creativity adds to Resilience

Cover-19 Challenge: Creativity is Key

Resilience can be cultivated by boosting creativity. We are creative when we turn imaginative ideas into reality, or when we find new ways and ingenious solutions to problems. Or when we see new connections and patterns between seemingly unrelated phenomena. Creativity is within each one of us and it is a resource we can use to solve problems in a fun and imaginative way. Boosting or waking up the creativity within is a valuable way to spend time. Start small: an art class using items like leaves, petals, images to create art. Express yourself in new ways —dance, sing, put on make- up and fun clothes, read poetry aloud. By stretching your creative spirit, you will be more able to deal with stressful situations.
Reflection Question:
How did you engage all that you are —the thinking, rationale, and structured you + your child within who just loves to play?
Reflection in Action:
Do a silly fun thing just for the pure enjoyment of life

The Situation and not the Attitude that defines the actions of a person

Guesting with a group that provides support for OFWs

The government has just extended quarantine from April 15 to May 15. And, people are naturally anxious for their family and friends. In the homefront, family members are frequently at each other’s nerves as tensions then to escalate quickly. It is the collective anxiety that adds to our own tension. Many families ask me if their spouse is really the horrid person to bickered because of a minor ruffle on the table cloth; who became demanding when the veggies weren’t cooked well enough. The answer is ‘NO”. Everyone is reacting to the stress of the situation. Simply put, they are not nasty people. they are people placed in a nasty situation. Listen more on this topic at my webinar


Money can’t buy Happiness

People’s greatest fear now is the loss of money.

Do we still have jobs? where we going to get the money for stuff we need? How are our businesses going to run? Will we have enough to ride this out?Those are the conversations amongst friends, officemates, parents. As if having money would certainly make them happy.

The science suggests that after the amount needed for basic needs, the excess monies does not equally increase the levels of happiness. And so, before worrying whether you would be happy with less shoes or less expensive vacations, the science suggests you chill. You will be just as happy with the old pair of slippers and a trip to the local beach. Someone with the BMW and Prada bag isn’t happier than someone carrying a nylon bag on a the MRT. People simply get used to the things they have that the novelty wears off pretty quickly.
