I have learned that my first 20 minutes when I wake up is probably the most important time of the day for me. Check the video below .. and it is in three parts! .. please swipe to the other two videos.
It’s a time when my brain is in full programmable mode and my self talk during this time actually helps to change my behaviours for the day and in turn creating a momentum of new habits.
In the past, my routine was to grab a cup of coffee, catch up on TV, listen to music in the morning. While that was good .. I will filling up time before work and not using the time I had to setup my day. It make a huge difference when you start the day with a focus on YOU and not just get ready for work or school. .
I know it is not what you are used to hearing. But, I am here to tell you .. the more you focus on the things that you suck at and less time you have to focus on the things that naturally make you awesome and valuable.
Thinking back on my own history, I grew up in Singapore and I wasn’t a very good student. Actually, I wasn’t good in one specific class; Math. Unfortunately for me, that was the MOST important class for my parents and not being good in Math for them meant, I sucked in EVERYTHING.
The thing is, I spent most of my teen years focusing on JUST BEING good in Math while it was the one subject I sucked at it. My point is, no matter how I tried, I wasn’t going to be the best but everyone made me feel like it’s the ONE thing I must be good at and I continued try really hard. During this time, I didn’t focus much on topics and skills that make me naturally good. I would love to focus on music, art, drama .. I also love to read and didn’t do much reading.
Being an entrepreneur, I really had to work on the skills like presentations, critical thinking, customer service and leadership. These had nothing to do with Math and while I did learn basic accounting to help me run my business, not being good in math and choosing to suck at it, made it possible for me to build on the skills that make me successful every day!
To be comfortable in your own skin is a life long journey. While it is a hard thing to do, it is something that we all need to work on. You see, when you go deep inside yourself and find out what makes you tick .. you find your ‘power’ .. POWER that can become your base to build from.

“Everything I know about life has either been learnt here or its been tested here for its validity. Cause between this metal fence, every thought that gave u motivation, drive, fear, insecurity , comfort, discomfort is about to get exploited and tested. When the body and mind begins to quit…the reminder of why you ever began might be the only thing that gives you life when you most need it.”
