Some of you may already know this rather popular story.

A man came upon a construction site where three people were working.  He asked the first, “What are you doing?” and the man replied: “I am laying bricks.” He asked the second, “What are you doing?” and the man repl...

Do any of these voices sound familiar?

“I know what I want to do next. I would love that job! But I don’t know if I’m qualified. And so many people with more experience would want that job. Why would they want to hire me?”

“I took time off from work to care for my family...

Spending time away from working in a traditional corporate setting has allowed me to debunk a few myths I used to believe when I was immersed in that space:

  • My salary = the value I bring (my worth)

  • Steady paycheck = security

  • A poor performance review ratin...

When my friends ask me how I’m doing, I sometimes sound like a broken record. Has that happened to you? Do you hear yourself complaining about the same things – relating the same stories over and over about why you can’t overcome something in your life?

In these moments...

Mom says every good day must start with a good breakfast.

While that is true, what I find to be even more helpful is to start the day with positive outlook and high sense of self-worth.

I answer the following questions every morning to put myself in such a state:

  • What...

For a long time now, I have struggled with mastering self-love, self-confidence, self-worth. I know impostor syndrome and perfectionist tendencies are holding me back, but I wasn’t sure how to have a breakthrough. I wrote myself positive affirmations. I try to love mys...

In my coaching sessions, clients often tell me one of the things they value most is the ability to talk to someone who doesn’t judge them.

Everyone wants to be accepted for who we are. No one likes to be judged or criticized.

Unfortunately, it’s a natural human trait for...

More than ever before, I see the truth in sayings like:

“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you are right.”

“Believe you can and you are halfway there.”

“The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones that do.”

Imagine we are fishes swimming along a river.

We swim with the flow of the current, swim with the flow of life. Trust the flow, let it carry us, and hope it takes us to a good place – even if it wasn’t the place we expected. Along the journey, take in every person we ru...

Donald Trump won the election. I, like many of my friends, were surprised by the election result.

I can’t help but feel confronted by the facts. The fact is that the American people have spoken – we choose Trump. The fact that I am surprised by the result is a reflectio...

Nudge is concept I came across when I researched how to bring about organizational culture change. Nudge is the gentle push. Culture change happens with little nudges. For instance, one coworker smiling at another in the elevator, or one manager acknowledging an employ...

To live a grade A life, I need to be okay with getting B's.

Let me explain.

I am someone who has been taught to get A grades in school. This pursuit in school transpired into getting A grades in career, getting A grades in friendship, getting A grades in almost everythin...

Recently, I noticed that a few successful business women share one trait in common. They share the ability to demonstrate what I named as “masculine energy” at the workplace. They have the ability to assert their opinion without being overly concern about what other pe...

This poem is inspired by my boyfriend, who said that I look like a tigress. 

A scared bunny,

Cute and fuzzy as can be,

Innocent and pure,

Hopping from place to place, person to person,

Bringing joy and cheer to others,

I became a leadership coach recently, and found myself struggling with my own ability to lead myself. In my morning meditation today, I realized a few lessons from my own pursuit in being my best self - being a leader for me.
