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. 🙂
I enjoyed watching star wars movies with my family. Although I am not a die hard fan, I find that the quotes in the movie are good ones, they have philosophical meanings which enlighten us.
This phrase has been popular with die hard Star Wars fans.
May The Force Be With You
Saying it makes me feel the power too. 😉
I never knew that the Internet would provide an opportunity for me to redesign my life.
Previously, my option was only working at manufacturing company because I earned a degree in Engineering.
After a hiatus of raising my children, I couldn’t go back to employment, so I need to create a career for myself.
I value flexibility and freedom, and I have benefited so much from the Internet in terms of information and communication.
I connect with awesome mentors, coaches, clients and friends from different parts of the world whom I might not otherwise. 😉
I choose Internet-based because I don’t need brick and mortar building to market my professional service and it is cost effective.
I have built my online presence by using personal branding website and social media.
Now, I’m helping professionals, small business owners to build their presence online.
I know there are many professionals and small business owners who need help in expanding their career/business online.
They want to be known and to share their experiences and knowledge with the world while they market their products and services.
Trust me that you will feel much better and develop yourself if you are willing to share yourself with the world.
Social media like Facebook becomes popular because people want to share their stuffs with the world.
How can you build your professional presence online?
I absolutely recommend a personal branding website as the foundation to build your professional presence online.
