Sharing The Joys Of Coaching

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

It was one of those rare moments when we actually got to board the aircraft earlier than scheduled. Feeling grateful, I slipped into my window seat and sat quietly, reading my book. Then Capt Esguerra went on the PA system, “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen! The runway in Manila … ” “Oh My God!” the passenger next to me exclaimed. “Blah. Blah. Delayed.…


Return To Innocence

As the plane zoomed midway across the runway to take-off, more than half of the passengers have already dozed off. It was not a red-eye flight but, still, too early for most folks on vacation mode. As we took off, we all ignored that usual feeling of air pockets in our tummy. Well, almost all of us did. Giggling As soon as I…


Step Back

“Don’t run away from your problems.” I’m sure we’ve all heard this before and why not? It’s a great advice and often the right thing to do. Once in awhile though, it’s important to take a time out to re-energize. Not run, but simply take a break and step away from the daily grind. Get away from the city. Flop over…
