• Taking Risks

    Jump FIRST, fly LATER ๐Ÿฆ

    โ€œWe have to continually be jumping off cliffs and develop our wings on the way down.โ€ -Kurt Vonnegut I came across this quote the other day, and it’s justย one of those quotes that strike you unexpectedly. My friends know very well that my social mediaย feed is BLASTED with inspirational posts and quotes. So much so that I’ve now been finding myselfย picking the right quote for the rightย friend at the right time in their Life. This time, this quote spoke to me. Not only me but the whole network of neuron “minions” in my head. I think I literally heard them chant altogether “Aahhaa!!” So often we become overwhelmed with the…

  • Winning Yourself

    Triggers โšก

    Most times it isn’t the ONE good or bad thing that either makes or breaks your day, but rather a sequence of events that trigger a “chain reaction” leading to your current condition.ย  Missing your bus in the morning made you angry, your frustration was brought to work and your lack of focus made you spill your coffee on your desk, your deeper frustration showed lack of real concern when your colleagues came up to your office in need of help, this lack of performance then makes a dent in your self-esteem which goes noticed by your supervisor and he asks you to come his office for a quick chat…

  • Self Development

    Be like water ๐Ÿ’ง

    I’m learning not to dwell too much on the annoying details of life, because whenย I do so I notice it draws too much of my energy that could’ve been best put somewhere else. Learning to let things go is probably not one of my best strengths due to my high levels of empathy and emotional intelligence, which unfortunately sometimes backfires into high sensitivity. Martin Luther King Jr. had it, no one can doubt his outstanding ability to mesmerize and capture the hearts of his people with his words and actions, but heย was also known to be very sensitive to criticism. I truly admire my strengths and I am just so…

  • The Humble Grind

    ONE brick at a time ๐Ÿ“ฆ

    I started off a new side hustle, and I’m already noticing that it’s taking away some of my gym and social time. I once heard that there are three types of success: Sales success (career), Self success (mind/body/health), and Social success (friends and community). I also once heard that it’s almost impossible to have all 3 at once, usually just two. I guess this is a risk and sacrifice I’m willing to take. How else will I grow and discover my next thing in life? Adding a little more value and energy each day to your side-hustle is like building a house ONE brick at a time. I’m learning that the…

  • Spirituality

    You are your own saviour ๐Ÿ™

    I can’t count how many times I had to lift myself up after falling flat on my face. We look up to so many people we admire and love, but like it or not, those people will not always be there for us when we fall. It is then upon you to be that helping hand when no one is around. The truth is, and I hate to say this so bluntly, the World will keep spinning with or without your existence. Your path in life is shaped by the very road you pave yourself, by yourself, and for yourself.

  • Self Development

    Love all, trust a “few” ๐Ÿ™Š

    I came across this quote as I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, and I believe it’s true. Most people who know me know that I give my love out to everyone and everything. While I do in fact give out my love unconditionally, I’ve come to learn that I must be careful as to who I add to my circle of “trusted members”. There are those whom I love, and there are those whom I love and “trust” – that’s a BIG difference. No matter how pure and sincere your intentions are, you can’t guarantee that the receiving-end has the same in store for you. I’m not saying you…

  • About me

    About me ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    Engineer by profession but a mentor at heart, I completed my university education whilst struggling to learn about my actual “purpose” in Life. Through my undergraduate and graduate education at uWaterloo and UofT, respectively, I learned so much about my strengths and weaknesses and discovered where I should be focusing all my energy to make the most impact in the World I live in. My love for machines as well my passion to help people has landed me at my current position as a Senior Biomedical Engineering Lab Coordinator at the University of Guelph. Outside of my work I am passionate about fitness, cooking, self-development, and spirituality – the four…
