Lanterns or light are often used in Asian cultures and religions, they surely have a spiritual and philosophical meaning for life. Light is like the source of life, and we need it to keep us alive and make life meaningful.
Bright red lanterns come in all kinds of sizes are such delight to see during Chinese New Year festival. People rejoice over these lanterns as they bring a sense of happiness and a promising bountiful new year.
Each of us has light inside of us. We need to take care of it so it’s shining brightly within us, and we also can shine for others when we are stronger.
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.
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.
“Those who feel satisfied with their personal lives are more satisfied with their careers and perform better.” 😉

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. 🙂
Children are always curious about everything. When they are curious, they will explore and discover the answer.
We, parents often take safety steps for our kids. Too much of NOs can kill curiosity in children, and we wonder why they are not creative.
However, as we grow up, we shut down our curiosity. Now, we yearn to be creative again.
