If it were me…

I used to judge a lot and usually it is not just limited to people but to different situations as well. I am not saying I am not judgmental anymore, but I’m always working to lessen it. It’s actually hard not to judge you know. Just this morning, I was annoyed when I saw a […]

Be careful what you wish for…

Have you ever want something so bad but when you get it, you realized that what you already had is what you really want?   If you have been following me, I shared that my contract was not renewed and that led to me being out of the workforce for 52 days, the longest break […]

What are you afraid of?

It’s Halloween today. So I guess, it is kind of timely to talk about the things that we are afraid of. When I was a kid (actually up to now), I have always been afraid of ghosts. I might have seen one or two, but who knows, it might just be my imagination. I didn’t […]

Acknowledge what you have accomplished thus far…

When I was just starting out my coaching journey a year ago, we had peer coaching sessions. In these sessions, we coached each other for 24 sessions in whatever topic we want solved or addressed. I enjoyed those sessions and to tell you honestly, I’ve made a lot of breakthroughs during those sessions. What I […]

Ask for help…

There were a few times when I could have asked for help but I didn’t. Primarily it’s because of pride, probably because I thought I’m better than the person I’m asking help from, or because I just don’t want to bother people with my personal problems. Before my coach training, I always thought that we […]
