What’s the sound of your music?

While I’m waiting for my next contract to start, I have been keeping myself busy with a lot of things. Bringing and fetching my daughter to school, writing a book, boxing, playing video games, investing time on my coaching practice and most recently, joining an orchestra. I’m not sure if I have told you before, my dream job is to become a rock star. It has always been that. Well, I dreamt of becoming a pilot and an astronaut but…

Know Your Values…

Values are the principles people live by. They are what drive people and make them tick. Values are unique per person because they are what they think are important in their lives. There are two types of values: fear-based and conscious based. Values based on fear are the ones that cause you to take action to avoid something. They are have to’s. On the other hand, conscious values allow people to take positive action. They are want to’s. So enough…

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 get coached on the most is my lack of self-validation and self-acknowledgment. The reason why I feel not good enough, the reason why I don’t…

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 can only ask help from our friends, family or relatives but it turned out you can even ask a stranger for help. All you need…

Let Your will be done…

I rarely talk about faith in my coaching sessions because faith is personal. We have different views about it, but I’ll share my experience last week. I am attending a Feast Video session when in the video, they sang Set a Fire by Jesus Culture (check this out, this is one of my favorite worship songs), after talking about getting out of the way and letting the Holy Spirit take over. This song has less than 10 repeating lines but…

Your circle of influence…

I have not been using Facebook a lot lately, I mainly use it for my business and there’s this one post that really stood out for me. Apparently, someone posted about something that she didn’t like about someone. We do that a lot. A few years ago, I used to rant on Facebook about everything, the traffic, politics, personal feuds and so on. Today, looking back at my Facebook Memories, I feel horrible. On a brighter note though, I also…

Ask and you might receive…

You read that right, ask and you MIGHT receive. It’s not the bible verse, Matthew 7:7, Ask and it will be given to you… but yeah, you get the idea. Have you worked on something really hard and the payment or reward that you got is not what you are expecting but you chose not to ask for more? Have you ever wondered, what the answer will be like for a question that you really want to ask but you…

Will you compromise your beliefs and values system?

I’m still waiting for my contract to start this November (Yay!) but I still go to interviews. First, because I’m still hoping I can get a job earlier than November. Second, because I like to improve my communication skills and I think, going to interviews is one of the best ways to do it. Anyway, I went to an interview last week, this time for a dating site for married couples. During the initial interview with the HR, one of…

I used to be confident…

I always believe I was smart. Mainly because my parents told me I am. I was an honor student when I graduated from high school, I passed quarterly exams with flying colors even though I just reviewed for an hour. I passed the University of the Philippines’ entrance exam which further confirmed my “smartness”. I got 3 scholarships going to college which again further validated my intellect and built my confidence. Well, it all came crashing down on my first…

Husbands, love your wives…

Today, we received our latest blessing. My baby boy is out! Although I already have a daughter, I was not in the operating room when she was born. I was anxiously waiting outside. Today was different, I was in the “war room” the whole time. This was my wife’s second delivery and seeing how everything transpired, I can’t help but be astonished by how much my wife and all the mothers endure the pain of carrying the baby, delivering the…
