Do you get overwhelmed sometimes?
That’s exactly what we’ll talk about today 🙂
Let’s dive right into our Story, Highlight, and call to Action for the week 🙂
I love to take things slow.
I take time to chat with God in the morning when I wake up.
I take slow lunches… I take naps in the afternoon.
Weekends are a blank canvas except for Sunday Mass.
That’s why when friends invite me on a weekend, I can be spontaneous.
I really believe that if you want to go fast, you need to go slow.
These days though, there are so many exciting and beautiful things happening all in the same month.
We’ll have the book launch of the graduates of The 90-Day Book Writing Challenge on Aug 12. (You’re invited. See the P.S.)
Then we’ll also have the graduation of the participants of my speaking program for entrepreneurs and C-Suite leaders at the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) on Aug 26.
On August 19, I’ll deliver my TEDx talk. This has been a long-time dream so I’m soooooo excited!!!
In between these exciting events, each week, I teach at AIM, write newsletters, and am currently writing a short eBook.
Plus, I also do some virtual masterclasses and workshops, and group coaching.
Excited and overwhelmed — these are the two words that sum up how I am feeling these days.
Though I am overwhelmed, I am also very grateful.
What were once dreams are now becoming a reality — not just for me but for the students of my online course and our speaking program for C-suite leaders.
Years ago, I and my team can only organize one event in 3 months. Now, we can organize two back-to-back events in the same month while also managing other tasks.
Years ago, it took me 3 years to write my first book. Now, I can write a book in a few days.
Here’s what I realized.
“Everything has its cost. Sometimes, that cost is paid in advance, and it’s called PREPARATION.”
Call to ACTION
What are your dreams?
If you achieve your dreams tomorrow, are you ready for them?
Let’s give some context and examples.
Maybe you dream of traveling to South Korea. If tomorrow you won a trip to South Korea, do you have your passport ready?
Maybe you dream of getting promoted from a middle manager to an Assistant Vice President (AVP). If your AVP gets promoted to the VP position next week and you were tapped to be the next AVP, are you ready for the demands of the job?
Maybe you’ve dreamed of writing a book for so many years already. Now, you’re presented with a proven program that will teach you how to write your book in 90 days, even if you’re not a writer, and without you having to take a sabbatical leave. Are you ready to join that program?
Maybe you want to be happily married. If you meet your potential spouse next week, are you ready to love him and let love in? Ehem!
Have you started paying the price for your dreams? Have you started preparing for it?
Preparation is key. Preparation can be in terms of saving up money, building character, practicing the craft, etc.
You’ve got this!
I wish you fearless possibilities!
