Gift – Accept or Decline

By | ABNLP, Action, BreakThrough, Change, Happiness, Life, Love, Self Love, Self-improvement

It is said that on one occasion when a wise man was teaching a group of people, he found himself on the receiving end of a fierce outburst of abuse from a bystander, who was for some reason very angry.

The wise man listened patiently while the stranger vented his rage, and then he said to the group and to the stranger, “If someone gives a gift to another person, who then chooses to decline it, tell me, who would then own the gift? The giver or the person who refuses to accept the gift?”

“The giver,” said the group after a little thought.

“Any fool can see that,” added the angry stranger.

“Then it follows, does it not,” said the wise man, “whenever a person tries to abuse us, or to unload their anger on us, we can each choose to decline or to accept the abuse; whether to make it ours or not.

‘By our personal response to the abuse from another, we can choose who owns and keeps the bad feelings.”

 

You free to choose, but the choices you make today will determine what you have, be, and do in the tomorrow of your life.”

— Zig Ziglar

 

In life, we decide whether we want to receive and keep “gifts” or reject and let go of them when we acquire them from others. Gifts can be either momentary or lasting are genuinely given to us to make us feel happy, appreciated and loved besides developing our self-esteem and confidence.

However, there are gifts positioned to us that create feelings of anger, sadness, guilt, regret inside of us which will affect us to be more unenthusiastic in our behaviour and have pessimistic mentality.

 

Do you find that perhaps you have been receiving all ‘gifts’ without thinking or considering of the consequences it will have on you and that you have to receive them no matter what?

Do you project negativity as a result of accumulating it over the years, and if so, isn’t it the time to let it go? After all, without letting go these harmful negativities, how can we be open to receive positivity?

Would you like to be able to let go of these ‘bad gifts’and get to hand-picked your own gifts and take back control of your life and designed it the way you want?

 

If your answer to any of the above is yes, it is time to change. Time to make new patterns and experimenting various options that will make a difference in your life. It is the time for you to join us and discover who is it you want to be and what is stopping you from being just that. Contact us to know more.

 

 Nothing in the universe can stop you from letting go and starting over.

The 5Ps to Prosperity

By | ABNLP, Action, Billy Kueek, BreakThrough, Change, Inspiration, Motivation, Passion, Personal Development

The first step in achieving prosperity and wealth is learning to appreciate what you already have.” Anonymous

Prosperity means different things to different people. To some, it means wealth or status, and for some it may be their health, peace, family’s well-being or financial freedom. What is yours? How do you know what significance prosperity is to you? Here are some tips to get you started.

 

Passion

Without passion, life is only motion – Dr Billy Kueek

Passion is the driving force behind all successful people and companies. It provides the “fuel” that keeps you going during tough times, gets you up in the morning and motivates you to preserve no matter what. While many people may have great ideas and a wonderful plan to implement it, some may abandon it halfway due to lack of passion and enthusiasm. To find your passion, think about what are your values – the inner forces that drive your thoughts, actions and behaviors. By understanding yourself better and knowing your personal values, you can then work with them or change them to maximize your potential.

Planning

Proper Planning Prevents Potential Problems – Dr Billy Kueek

Plan, plan, plan. How else would you know how to prepare for, how to organize your ‘wealthy’ ideas and put them into action? By planning, you will also be prepared for setbacks and the hurdles, hence, know and concoct alternative actions you can put into place to overcome them. Success come to those who are prepared, so plan ahead to stay ahead!

Are you Perfect or Imperfect? Personal Sharing of Jessica (25 years old)

By | ABNLP, Change, Coaching, Happiness, Inspiration, Life, Live by Design, Personal Growth, Purpose

“Life is like a camera,

Focus on what’s important,

Capture the good times,

Develop from the negatives

And if things don’t work out,

Take another shot.

 

This quote perfectly sums up my LBD (Live By Design) journey organized by Billy Kueek International (BKI). LBD is short for Live By Design and not by default. It demonstrated to me how to live my life according to my own principles and own values, and not according to other people’s expectations. In our society or culture, there are no shortages of cases where people, friends and family members “recommend” how we should live our life, what job we should pursue, what course we should study, what to eat… and the list goes on. I am pretty sure all of us to do it – whether consciously or unconsciously – and I have had my fair share of being on the receiving end of these incidences as well while growing up.

Why did you joined this program? 

I became obsessed with how other people viewed me, or what they thought of me, and hence I became pessimistic. Anger, irritation and negative thoughts were my best friends. I became withdrawn, fearful of talking to people or strangers – fearful of them judging me and my appearance. Parties and social gatherings was always making me panic as I was thinking about: “What if someone starts talking to me, and then start comparing me with my sibling (twin sister)?”

What is the program about? 

LBD program, it is an 9-day certification program that incorporates Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Line Therapy™ (TLT), Hypnotherapy and NLP Coaching. It equips you with the knowledge and skills to resolve personal blockages, remove limiting beliefs and negative baggage and be able to Live life By Design.

Happy Make a Friend Day!

By | ABNLP, Change, Food for thought, Live by Design, NLP, Personal Development

Do you still remember when you were a small kid and making friends was as easy as ABC? We could easily go up to another kid, start playing with each other and have lots of fun!

At this age, do you feel like it’s so tough to connect with another person? Do you feel awkward and uneasy when surrounded with strangers? Do you struggle to make a conversation with someone you just met? When a stranger says “Hi” to you, how do you respond? Do you say “Hi” back, or you start to wonder if this person has any ulterior motive for chatting you up?

I remember this incident very clearly.

A new family moved into my block on the 10th level. One day, as I took the lift down, the door opened on the 10th level and this new Caucasian neighbour walked in.

Neighbour: “Hi, how’s your day?”
Me: “Hey, it’s been great so far. Hope it gets even better. How’s yours?”

Door opened on 9th level and a middle-aged chinese lady walked in.

Neighbour: “Hi how’s your day?”

Lady completely ignored him and stared straight at the lift door, with her back to the guy. Guy turned to face me again and shrugged, completely puzzled. There was an awkward silence in the lift. When we reached the 1st level, the lady walked out immediately.

Neighbour: “I guess people here aren’t too used to receiving friendly greetings.”
Me: “We could have continued our conversation but I guess the atmosphere just now was a little awkward. Haha. Say ‘Hi” to me again next time, I’ll respond!”

We wished each other well for the day and parted ways.

What happen to being friendly? What made us start to doubt a sincere greeting & shun away from wishing each other well?

When was the last time you made a new friend?
When was the last time you tried connecting to someone new?

Make a new friend today!

Which Master Are You?

By | ABNLP, Change, Coaching, Food for thought, Hypnosis, Live by Design, NLP, Personal Development

Are you a Master of Assumption, where you:
– Assume your partner, lover, or friends ignore you because of what you said?
– Assume people are angry at you when they do not reply or answer you?
– Assume your partner, lover, or friends thinks you are a burden when you regularly text or call them?
– Assume your partner or lover do not love you when they do not talk to you or reply you after “X” number of hours?
– Assume partner, lover, or friends are stressed and upset because of you?

Or

Are you a Master of Judgement, where you:
– Believe that you can never find the one while others have?
– Think you are always the one at fault when you are not?
– Judge yourself way more harshly in terms of your appearance?
– Believe other people uses you because they love you and need you?
– Consider yourself the ONLY one who can do the work or tasks given?

Or

Are you a Master of Negativity, who thinks:
– I am not good enough, therefore I did not get that job. It must be my fault.
– I cannot do it because I do not think I am capable enough.
– I can never accomplish what he/she have. I am not that smart.
– I am a failure.
– I do not know how to speak confidently so I rather keep quiet.
– I am afraid that people will reject me so I do not initiate or ask.
– Nervous, fidgety and anxious is my name and I can never get rid of them.

Need a Hand To Get Up and Start?

By | ABNLP, Change, Coaching, Hypnosis, Live by Design, NLP, Personal Development

You know there is a deadline, but only rushed to complete it the night before
You have a messy room that needs to be cleaned or organized, or clothes/dishes to be washed but never got to them.
You want to reduce your weight, but you are too lazy, unmotivated or tired to work out.
You want to eat healthily, but it is a hassle to start making home-cooked food.
You want to ask someone out on a date, but do not have the courage to do so.
You always wanted to go on a vacation, but never had the time to do so.
You want to spend time with your family and friends, but you are just so busy.

“There are 365 days in a year. I have plenty of time to do what I want to do.
Even if I do not complete it today, there is always tomorrow.”

Many people say this to comfort themselves when they put off things they know they are supposed to do. Avoidance in completing a task or activity is something everyone is familiar with and guilty of doing it at least once in their lifetime. This is PROCRASTINATION.

Be Selfish, Love Yourself

By | ABNLP, Change, Coaching, Hypnosis, Live by Design, NLP, Personal Development

Love Yourself:
Time to Say Goodbye to Others (just for a little while) & Hello to Yourself (here to stay)

Self-Love is not Selfish.
Loving yourself more is not Selfish.
Putting yourself first is not Selfish.
Doing things you love, having fun and enjoying them is not Selfish.
Pay more importance to your own feelings is not Selfish.
Taking possession of your own happiness is not Selfish.
What you decide and choose as a priority is not Selfish.
Saying No is not Selfish.
Breaking other people heart with the intention to protect your own is not Selfish.
Taking time to repair and maintain yourself is not Selfish.
Treating oneself with pampering and kindness is not Selfish.

Somehow you will know when to start being “Selfish”.
Somehow you will know when to be “Selfish”.
Somehow you will know when not to be “Selfish”.
Somehow you will know when you have to be “Selfish”.

Have a time or moment that is just about you and not others.
Be responsible to yourself.
Take good care of yourself above all others.
Live the life you want it to be, and not how others told you to.
Love yourself.
Appreciate life and its beauty.

Right now, what is stopping you from having it?

At this moment…
What is making you think you cannot do it?
What is that fear that surrounds you?
What is it that you want?

If you never make yourself your top priority,
how can you expect anyone else to do it for you?

*Side Note: This article is not suggesting that you should disregard other people’s feelings, break the rules, or be a total narcissistic, unethical, unlikable and rude human being. There is a fine line of loving and doing things for yourself to being a total jerk and too being self-centered person.

Know Your Values, Ignite Your Fire

By | ABNLP, Coaching, Hypnosis, Live by Design, NLP, Personal Development

“The better you know yourself, the better is your relationship with the rest of the world.”
Toni Collette

Values are as important and valuable as the back bone that holds us up and keeps us in place to do the things that we love. Values are considered one of the most principal motivating push that individuals need to drive them into taking action with their lives. Values are slowly formed at a very young age through our interaction with our environment and experiences.

What are the values you value most in your life? Does your values drive your inner motivation? Does your values create liberating beliefs that push you out of your comfort zone to do what you really want to do in life, or get what you want in life?

What is it that you want to be that you are not becoming?

Common and Deadly, Anxiety is the Name

By | ABNLP, Change, Coaching, Hypnosis, Live by Design, NLP, Personal Development

“… I can’t stop thinking about this and it’s driving me crazy…
it’s the only thing in my mind…”

 “… I’m marveling… is he angry at me? Why is he not replying?
Does he not love me anymore…”

 “… I am not good enough. I am not worthy.
I am the reason why people are leaving me…”

 “… I know in my heart that this is just a small matter but this feeling keeps kicking in. This feeling makes me question stuff…
it is starting to grow stronger and it is affecting my daily life…”

 “… Even when things seem wonderful, calm and peaceful…
I am always waiting, thinking and sensing that something horrible is going to happen…
I hate this feeling…”

 

Does this seem familiar?
Does it resonate with you?
Does this feel like you … or anyone you know?
