I was in Penang International Airport last month waiting for a plane to come back home when I saw this posting. It will be the GREATEST Present that I have ever received for this year!

<<So many of us go through life without knowing what to do, without a purpose, or maybe having a dream but never finding time to fulfill these dreams. Most will easily come up with reasons for not doing so. However, you’ve really never lived life till you lived it purposefully. Once you discover or rediscover your life purpose, that’s your compass, bearing direction in your choices in life. You do things that are aligned with your purpose and you know when to let go of certain time occupiers that do not serve that purpose. The ONE most critical training I attended my entire life is the NLP course by an ex-colleague and now friend and mentor, Cayden Chang.
Even though I had known for some time what my life mission is, I never really took it seriously, just floating along, got sidetracked, mixed with wrong company that got me so high and dry on some hollow friendship, and made a terrible life mistake that thrusted me into depression and felt that life wasn’t worth living. On the outside, I was wearing a facade of happiness, bubbly and friendly. Deep inside, I was hurting badly and felt I was living just so my loved ones do not have to grief. When Cayden first asked the class what we would want to do if we knew we only had a few weeks, days or months to live. I told the class there was nothing I’d do as I was ready to go. By Day 6 of NLP, this had changed.
At the NLP basic practitioner training and later master practitioner training, I rediscovered my life purpose. Untangled myself from the negative people that I got involved with, cleared my negative emotions and guilt, integrated a conflict that I had held with regard to making money whilst doing charity, learned and explored strategies for self life coaching and facing up to an unavoidable extended family member who’d been mentally abusing me for close to 20 years. Through it all, I completed my master’s degree and though I got nominated for two awards (based on research excellence and GPA) but didn’t win any, I emerged a winner. I’ve won over the demons in me: fear, conceitedness, procrastination, insecurity, negativity, etc. The list can go on and on. Other than my supportive husband who is always the buoy that keeps me afloat, NLP training at the NLP Singapore – Mind Kinesis NLP Academy is the lifeline thrown to me, the one that got me ashore. Borrowing the lyrics from the song ‘Passion’, the purpose (future) before me, the past behind me, there’s no turning back.
With NLP, I’ve opened the door for myself to a community of positive, supportive and encouraging NLP practitioner friends. I’ve also gone on to attend another training in Value Investing (VI) by Cayden’s company and started investing and earning passive income. Every now and then, in Facebook, these two communities of practitioners (NLP and VI) will “nudge” me on my dreams and my life purpose, with their reflections, announcements and sharing of their achievements of the various milestones and life goals. This sharing by Cayden below is one of them. Life is constantly throwing us the unexpected, the unpleasant, the irksome somebody or some events. I can’t stop these from coming. But I am now better, much better equipped with the resources and community of support to face these. Unconsciously, I’m also starting to be more reflective, something I deem a positive transformation in me. Of course, NLP is not the panacea to all downs in life. It doesn’t mean I will never ever cry, fear, procrastinate, make mistakes or fail. Like what my best friend and sis-in-Christ Dorothy said, I am still the sinner, but a saved sinner. I am still the fallible human, but a more resourceful human, with the necessary mental resources to cope with the spectrum of life experiences.That is why I always have Cayden (who survived renal cancer in 2010) in my prayer. His work is transforming people’s lives. I sincerely hope he can continue to transform many more lives. And this all started with Cayden himself having the life purpose to motivate and empower people to reach their destiny.
