I feel like that we are still in New Year mood in early January. Everyone talked about their New Year resolution and goals. It looks like they really want to work on their goals to make year 2019 better than the last year. It’s true that we always high hope in the beginning of the year to set our ambition.
I recently conducted a survey for small business owners to share their challenges and their dream solution, what they hope for.
If you are running a business and you are doing it solo, you can participate in the survey here. 🙂
I understand that you try to be self-sustaining, hoping to work it out by yourself.
You don’t want to share your challenges, hope and goals with someone else because you don’t trust them. They may belittle or disagree with you.
I was in the same situation previously in building my career online.
I always said, “I can do it by myself. I don’t need any help. I can ask uncle Google. Google always gives me the answer”
I believe that having someone to support you is crucial. Knowledge and information themselves can’t give you the solutions. Humans can’t operate like a machine which can process the information because humans are more intelligent and at the same time, they are emotional too.
How can coaching discovery help you?
Coaching discovery is for people who are new to coaching and want to experiment coaching. Most people keep their ideas and problems to themselves, it is an opportunity for you to share your challenges and hope to a coach. Because the nature of coaching is non-judgment and confidential, you will let go of your fear and telling whatever you need to tell without the fear of being judged.
How would you like to lead yourself and others?🙂
Leadership becomes part of our life without we even realize it. We can’t run away from it. We all have an innate capability of leadership if we search for it.
From the moment you stop leading yourself, you lead your life to spiral downward.
Whether you are a leader in your family circle, an organizer of a small gathering for friends, a leader in an organization or at workplace, you still play a role as a leader.
When I was young, I didn’t take up any leadership roles at school. When I was working, I was appointed as a coordinator. That was my first experience with leadership. I needed to collaborate with people in order to get the jobs done. I realize that leadership plays a role in my life and in my work. As a mother, I’m leading my children. In my work as a coach consultant, I show my integrity and responsibility for my clients.
People of all ages have a tendency to be entrepreneurial with the technology and Internet. People are more creative to generate ideas, to make products or to create services that help others.
The good sides about being an entrepreneur is we work independently on our own although we can create a team. If you are doing it alone, get a support. Even Steve Jobs is not doing it alone, he has a coach to help him. We are the initiator. We do what we love, and we love what we do. We can apply our own ideas to make products or services which make an impact for people. We have the freedom and there is no limit of what we can do.
Sunday, June 18 is the father’s day.
Often, Father is the symbol of superpower.
Although my late father passed away 8 years ago, I have good memories of him.
I see my late father as a person who always tried to make the right choices because he was the pillar of the family.
In coincidence with Father’s day is also the ever entertaining movie, Despicable me 3.:-)
On this father’s day, I invite you to reflect on the invisible power, our Superpower.
Gru is well-known as a villain or the most despicable person. Despite of being a villain, he also has a superpower of kindness after he met the cute kids from the orphanage. He changed his heart after meeting those kids.
I believe that everyone has superpowers.
Have you ever done something extraordinary and you felt at the peak? Yes, you had a superpower at that moment. However, you need a consistency and efforts to make it permanently.
Sometimes, life can be chaotic because we have so much to do in life. And we only have 24 hours a day. We need to balance between work and life. If we focus on career/business only, our life will suffer. We will probably lose our balance in life.
If we don’t enjoy our life anymore, it’s time to check what’s wrong and analyse our life. The assessment tool to check a life balance is called the coaching wheel. It is also called the wheel of life because the wheel is divided into segments and they represent key areas of our life.

It is never too late to get started rather than never get started at all.
I adopted that approach to reinvent myself.
As my children are growing up, and they go to school, I begin to reinvent my life.
With the help of Internet and technology, I ventured into different things from online store, affiliate marketing and finally I find my calling as a coach and a consultant.
When I reinvent myself, I begin to love my life. I’m no longer bored and tired with my life. 🙂
