Chase your Dreams

Can I ask you something?
What are things you want to do and what prevents you from doing it?

This post is part of The Wealthy Pinay series wherein I will talk about goal-setting, normalizing wealth and using positivity to achieve all our goals.


If you prefer to read, continue below. 

Do you want to set up a business? Do you want to travel? Do you want to change job? Do you want to help more people? Do you aspire to be with someone?

My question is – what’s your reason of not pursuing them? (more…)

Kimchee by Shogun

Kimchee by Shogun
It’s been a while since I posted something about food. Well, not that we don’t go out (we actually eat out often nowadays) but I don’t feel like sharing them unless it’s really something that standout for me.

We found ourselves in Satwa for 2 consecutive weekends – isn’t it obvious that we miss our old neighbourhood? I am surprised that a lot has change in that area since I last visited. There’s now Jollibee, Andoks chicken and a building called Manila! Where am I hiding?

Anyways, we tried Jollibee the weekend before and last Friday, it was this Korean/Japanese restaurant called Kimchee by Shogun.

I’m really craving for Korean food last week and the only Korean restaurant that we go to – that’s HYU – moved to Jumeirah Lakes Towers. I’m not in the mood to drive as the distance from my place to JLT is like going to work already. No chance. (more…)

Gratitude

Today we will talk about Gratitude

This post is part of The Wealthy Pinay series wherein I will talk about goal-setting, normalizing wealth and using positivity to achieve all our goals.

If you prefer to read, continue below. I have transcribed and English-translated the video.

Gratitude is being thankful for everything that we are receiving. Some people might say “Of course, I’m always thankful. I always thank God for all the blessings. I’m grateful that I woke up this morning.”

But for me personally, once you start complaining even for the smallest issue, if you start crying and even get depress for tiniest of problem, then I don’t think you are practicing gratitude. (more…)

Goal Setting (and the effective way to do it!)

This post is part of The Wealthy Pinay series wherein I will talk about goal-setting, normalizing wealth and using positivity to achieve all our goals.

If you prefer to read, continue below. I have transcribed and English-translated the video.

I don’t believe in just writing your goal on a piece of paper and then hope for the best. I don’t think it work that way.

For me, I would set a very clear goal every start of the year or everytime I have a project to do and try to visualize what I really want to achieve.

It’s not only writing ‘I want to be rich this year’ because that is so vague. My rich might not be your rich. You can’t just say ‘Lose weight’ because again that’s not very clear. You might lose 100 grams but will you be happy with that? (more…)

Money Blocks (with a FREE mini-course to release them)

This post is part of The Wealthy Pinay series wherein I will talk about goal-setting, normalizing wealth and using positivity to achieve all our goals.

Today we will talk about Money Blocks, and I know you’re thinking “What’s that???”

If you prefer to read, continue below.

On my last video, we were talking about Law of Attraction, which in essence states that whatever thought you continuously feed into your mind will definitely happen. Whatever you believe in will be your reality. That’s Law of Attraction.

It doesn’t matter how positive your outlook in life is, I am a very positive person too yet from time to time, I will be triggered by a thought telling me that my dream is not possible for me.

I have my own set of money blocks that have to deal with. (more…)

Law of Attraction – Everything is possible if you believe

This post is part of The Wealthy Pinay series wherein I will talk about goal-setting, normalizing wealth and using positivity to achieve all our goals.

Today we will talk about Law of Attraction.

Sounds voodoo or magical, right? I first came across the term Law of Attraction in 2015, only few years ago. While browsing the internet, while jumping from one blog to another, a writer mentioned the book The Secret so I bought it.

And WOW, the possibility of what our mind can achieve is an eye opener.

That’s the reason why I started my first blog talking  about positivity and Law Attraction.

At that time, in my mind,  “Why are people not using this knowledge? Why are they not harnessing the power of their own mind to achieve everything they want in life?”

Although I’ve only came across the term Law of attraction recently, I realized that I have been practicing it all along.
I am truly, deeply a very positive person. People around me like my husband or my mom would always say I aim so high. And they are not saying it in a negative way. (more…)

Money Mindset

This post is part of The Wealthy Pinay series wherein I’ll talk about goal-setting, normalizing wealth and using positivity to achieve all our goals.

You can watch the video or read the transcribed and English-translated version of it.

Money is the root of all evil.

Do you believe on that? We have heard these lines since we were young:

“Money doesn’t grow on trees”

“It doesn’t matter if we are poor as long as we’re not sick”

“Study hard so you can find better job”

And then have you realized during birthday celebrations, as a kid we were told “Ok, make a wish but don’t say it out aloud otherwise it won’t happen” (more…)

The Wealthy Pinay

If are a regular reader of my blog, you know how I love being a life coach and talk about self-improvement, positivity, personal finance and anything Oprah-esque. I really want to tell people how my life has changed by my positive outlook in life and how I see things.

What I reach now is not something out of luck.

Disclaimer:  This is the first and last time that I will say this. If you read or hear me anywhere on my posts or videos referencing about my own wealth and money, I am saying this just as an example without the intention of bragging or being a pompous bitch. I will stop apologizing to people on why I have money. If you get what I mean, well, thank you. If you don’t, then this blog is not for you. Sorry but not sorry.

I work hard on my mindset. I am still am working on my mindset until now.
Every morning as soon as I wake up and even before my feet touches the floor, I say thank you to God for giving me another day. I will close my eyes and feel the gratitude flowing in my veins and just thinking I’m blessed in so many ways.

  • I always reach the office safely
  • I have a job
  • My view on my desk is fantastic
  • My boss is nice
  • I have nice lunch today
  • There’s free coffee in the pantry
  • I reached home safely
  • My family is healthy

And thousand things to be grateful for is endless.

I want to share with everyone how positive outlook can drastically change our life.
That things we constantly feed our mind will be our reality.

What really triggered me to start this video series is the affirmation from people that I got the chance to have a chat with.
They shared with me their financial woes and personal problems and as I listened, I realized that their issues stems from having a negative mindset.
Useless boyfriend, philandering husband, being chased by banks due to loans. They basically can’t figure out how to get out of that dark hole.

These people are open to listen. So that’s when I shared what I know about debt management, goal-setting, power of positivity and basically just achieving what you want.

After few months, they told me that our ‘sessions’ sparked something inside of them.
These ladies followed my practical tips and used the action plan I shared.
In just a few months, they were able to closed their credit cards, settle their loans, bring their children here in Dubai, set-up their own business in the Philippines, get rid of that bad boyfriend and day-by-day inching toward their goals.

It’s an amazing feeling.

If these people around me acknowledges that what I say is beneficial to them, so why am I afraid to share it with others?

It all boils down to my fear of being visible and being labelled as a brag. Who wants to have haters, right?
But then, whenever I am alone and thinking what I really want in my life, as in what I really really really want to achieve in life – there is only one answer.

And that is to inspire.

Very Oprah right? But that’s really what will bring joy to me. If I die one day and people gather on my funeral, I want to hear that I inspire them to be a better person.

Please watch out of the videos and I hope it will inspire you to aspire more in life. Believe that everything is possible for you because God is with you.

If these videos touch a cord, I would appreciate if you can share them and tag people who can benefit from them. Let’s share the positivity.
