11 Lessons I Learned From ‘The I am Not Your Guru’ Tony Robbins

11 Lessons I Learned From ‘The I am Not Your Guru’ Tony Robbins

When I started my business, all I wanted was the strategy and tools for me to get started asap until I realised that everything in life doesn’t work that way. I learned this from the “I’m not your guru” guy - Tony Robbins of course. He’s been a teacher of mine for the past 15 years. And the rule that I learned from him is - in business is, 80% mindset and 20% strategy.

This changed how I run my business, how I show up in my life and how I work with my clients.

So yesterday after all the talks are done, I flew back to Perth from Sydney and I was watching a movie on the way.

The movie was about this married couple who seem to have it all; beautiful family, a big house, money, friends, happiness and everything one would ever want. Everyone around them admire them for what they have and they genuinely believe they have made it life... 

...until it's not. 

What Your Relationships Are Telling You

What Your Relationships Are Telling You

I’m done with relationships. 

Have you said that before? I have but I realised that we’re never done with relationships because we’re always in a relationship with someone or something. We’re in a relationship with our friends, partners, parents, dog, business, boss or even our laptop!

Great news is, all the people and things that we’re in a relationship with are always teaching us something. They are an opportunity for us to see ourselves very clearly - what our patterns are, what’s holding us back and how can we be whole.

[Note: when I say relationships, I’m not talking just about romantic relationships.]

There are a number of ways how our relationships can be a mirror to us. 

8 Things I Learned From Starting My Own Business

8 Things I Learned From Starting My Own Business

I have to be honest; I’ve been a little slow in replying messages on Facebook and emails because when I’m not coaching my clients, I’ve been spending a lot of time doing the deep inner-work on myself and also integrating them afterwards. 

One of the questions I get repeatedly asked is “what’s it like to start your own business” and I can see the clarity the women writing to me are seeking behind that question. I can feel that they’re at a point in their life where they’re ready to come out of the shell and make an impact in the world with their gifts. 

I have to say there are a lot of lessons I’ve learned over the years but here are the 8 things that I think will help you the most right now.

How To Tap Into Your Intuition (or Gut Feeling)

How To Tap Into Your Intuition (or Gut Feeling)
What’s intuition? 
I’m not intuitive. I’m not that type. 
How can I trust my intuition? 

If you fall into one of those three, then this post is for you. 

So what’s intuition? Intuition is a gut feeling or a natural knowing where you know how something is going to turn out before it happens. Some call it higher self, guardian angel, instinct or even god. Whatever you call it, we all have it. 

So when you say you’re not that type, there’s no type. 

We’re all intuitive. We all have gut feelings. 

It’s just a matter of how much do we pay attention to it and how much do we trust our gut. We’ve been trained to switch off the the natural knowing we’re born with because we’re trained to be logical. We must be able to ‘work out’ or have scientific evidence in order for us to believe. After all seeing is believing, isn’t it? No.

The thing is intuition defies logic. 

Even the most successful billionaires in the world use their intuition to make business decisions. Because it’s powerful and accurate.

The best part is, it’s free

And the good news is, even if you feel that you’re not intuitive, it’s something you can train. 

I use intuition to make decisions from small to big, personal to business, from insignificant to profound. I use intuition before I take on a new client. I use it when I coach my clients. 

When you follow your intuition, you rarely go wrong because it’s the inner wisdom that we’re accessing. 

8 Powerful Ways To Let Go So You Can Make Space For New Things

8 Powerful Ways To Let Go So You Can Make Space For New Things

“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it". - Ann Landers

At one point in our lives, we have to let go; our job, business, loved ones, pets or that old shirt that teddy bear we had since five. 

I see letting go as a sign of growth, a test and a pivotal moment of transformation. Because in the process of letting go, we gain so much more.

I have let go of so many things in my life; from jobs to marriage. Recently, I purposely let go of 80% of my belongings because I wanted to test myself and see what it’s like to live very little possession but a lot of space and love in my heart. 

So if you’re going through this process, I have a few tips here that I practice whenever it’s time for me to let go. 

How I went through 5 days without eating: My water-fasting experience

How I went through 5 days without eating: My water-fasting experience

So basically, I did water fasting for physical, emotional and spiritual cleanse. I’m always looking for ways to evolve to another level as a human being. It’s not about proving or challenging myself, but it’s more about understanding and getting connected to my mind, body and spirit more. 

As you might probably know, I’m a very spiritual person but at the same time, I live in the business world working with thousands of people even in just last year alone. I’m oscillating between the two worlds and in order for me to serve fully, share my knowledge and change lives, I need to live what I teach. I’m a big believer that I need to learn it and live it before I share it.

2015 Reflection: 7 Things I Learned In My Business This Year

Have you heard of this saying “what you focus on expands”?

They’re not just empty words. It’s about your energy. Your energy determines what you’re going to achieve today, tomorrow or the next three months. The thing is whenever I see other entrepreneurs, it’s almost like a trend where they have to talk about how stressed out and busy they are as if it’s a testimonial of how hard they've been working. So when your greeting becomes “Hi, I’m so stressed”, what’s going to happen next? What you focus on expands.

Are you upper limiting yourself?

Ever deflected a compliment by either ignoring the compliment or saying something else without acknolwedging it?
