Inspiring you to be more grateful each day

Hope you’re having a great week so far.

It’s been awhile since I sent my latest newsletter.

Let’s dive right into our Story, Highlight, and Call to Action for the week :)


In my latest newsletter, I shared my 2nd TEDx talk.

The big idea was this: “Problems are simply possibilities waiting to be ignited.”

If you have problems right now, know that everything IS working out for your highest good.

I am so grateful for my mentor, Brenda Bence.
She’s one of the world’s best coaches, speakers, and branding experts.

During one of her podcast interviews, she shared her philosophy and it is this:
​”Everything is always working out for your greatest good.”

It’s consistent with Romans 8:28.

Louise Hay also has an affirmation on YouTube that says,

“All is well. Everything is working out for my highest good. Out of this situation, only good will come and I am safe.”

Looking back at my life experiences, I saw that everything — even my biggest problems at that time — indeed worked out for my highest good.

The challenge is, how do you maintain this belief when you’re in the middle of the storm?

Maybe you’re a leader and your team members are disengaged.

Maybe you’re having financial problems.

Maybe you’re into sales and you haven’t met the quota yet.

Maybe your relationship is breaking apart, or you’ve been cheated on.
Maybe someone spoke badly behind your back.
Maybe someone duped you and scammed you.
Maybe your boss scolded you in front of everyone and you felt humiliated.

When you’re down and hurting, how can you maintain that belief that ‘Everything is working out for your greatest good?’

One way is repetition. Repeat this belief to yourself over and over again and dissect it.

Let’s do this right now.

“Everything is always working out for your highest good.”

​Everything — not just some things

IS – it’s in the present. Your current problem IS already working out for you right here, right now!

working out – this is good!!! It’s not breaking you, it’s making things better for you!

highest good — not just any good but your highest good


“Everything is always working out for your highest good.”

Call to ACTION

Do you have problems right now?

Repeat the belief that ‘Everything is always working out for my highest good’ over and over again.

Then proceed to ask yourself the right questions that will propel you forward:

What is this teaching me?
What is good about this?
How is this growing me?
What can I do better next time?
How can I show compassion to myself right now?
Who are the friends/family members who can support me?

What are the blessings that this problem is unlocking in me?

This is how you turn problems into possibilities.

I wish you fearless possibilities!

P.S.1: I was recently awarded one of the Top 100 Filipinos to follow on LinkedIn for Learning and Inspiration. Considering the vast community of over 12 million Filipinos on LinkedIn, this recognition is particularly meaningful to me. If you’re on LinkedIn, I would be delighted to connect with you. You can find me at

P.S.2. I recently spoke at the World HR Summit wherein I shared my signature keynote The Power of Being Seen. A lot of leadership and workplace problems right now can be solved if only the parties will listen to each other and make the other person feel seen. I’ve seen examples of how a leader who recently moved to a new post spent half a day listening to her team, did something, and the problem that that department had been enduring for years was solved within a week.

As you develop your team’s 2024 Learning and Development plan, I’m eager to partner with you. Together, let’s unlock your team’s potential and inspire fearless possibilities. Simply reply to this email so we can hop on a free discovery call.
