Yesterday morning, I attended a breakfast session with the bank’s Chief Risk Officer for Asia Pacific—-who happens to be a lady. I was actually having second thoughts attending the session, but it was a good thing I decided to still go because there’s nothing like a successful, smart, empathic and strong woman to inspire me.
She talked about her career and gave us six tips for success—-all of which I really think will be useful. One of the tips she gave was to spend these “junior years” at the firm developing self-awareness, so that you know what you’re good at and what you need to improve. She also adviced that we keep a journal to document the day to day feelinga and emotions that run through you to get a better idea of what you really want to do..
So. Today, while on the bus to work, I realized how I’m really slowly and surely living my dream. I now feel powerful and completely in-charge of my life. I worked hard and got the job in the company I wanted, I live in a nice condo with the man I love, my closet is filled with “power” clothes, and I actually earn enough money to indulge myself and the people I love. :) One would think that by having all that one could possibly want, one can now rest and be complacent about things—-well, quite contrary actually. Given all this, I’m actually more motivated than ever to develop all the talents I have and use all that I’ve been blessed with to do more in this world. I’m set on becoming one of the world’s most powerful women in 10 years’ time and I will accomplish that. All my actions and intentions are aligned to that goal. :)
Thank You Lord for this wonderful life. Thank You universe for granting me my wish.
I am writing to express my frustration about my very good friend who just told me that she is now pursuing the same goals as I am. It’s really annoying because I think she got the idea for what she wants to do with her life by constantly talking to me. I wouldn’t mind so much if I knew for sure that she was passionate about the same goals as I have, but the thing is, I know what she really wants to do with her life(NGO work) and by choosing to have my goals instead of coming up with her own, she’s choosing the easy way out.
Gah. I’m so pissed off about this right now. I wanted to motivate her about creating her own goals and not have her copy mine!
From now on, I will try my best to control my emotions and not give anyone the power to affect my mood or my feelings. This includes people who have nothing better to do than try to make me feel jealous or insecure. I am enchantingly beautiful and naturally loveable no matter what I do, however I’m feeling. I now glow from head to toe, all day, everyday. :)
I got my new shirts from the tailor today. I can’t wait to wear them with the shoes that I bought last Friday.
I told you, I’m going to do whatever it takes to get a AAA rating on my performance appraisal this year and to become one of the world’s powerful women by 2018—-and to get that part, one must dress for it at the audition.
Ok, now that I have all the work clothes I need..time to stop shopping and start saving. Hehe.
Sexy f*ck you shoes that proclaim to the world who’s in charge—-ME.
And with that, I bought two pairs of shoes today(three counting the tango shoes), one in gray, another in white, with no buyer’s remorse.
I can’t wait for the returns on my investments today. :)
...is a wonderful, supportive and loving man who waits for her to get home. Haha. I love my boyfriend.
Things are really falling into place in my life. My life is blossomming in complete, total perfection. The Secret really works. A few months back, I asked for a challenging and financially rewarding job with a European multinational corporation that has offices Singapore and I got it. I asked to be together with my boyfriend, and now, we have a simple happy life together in our very own apartment. Everything good is indeed coming to me easily and effortlessly.
Now, I’m asking the universe to please give me the opportunities to develop all the talents that God has blessed me with, help me make this world a better place to live in, and make me one of the world’s most powerful women in 10 years.
Thank You God for this beautiful life.
I’m going back to work today.
let me work smart and hard, be lucid and accomplish the tasks assigned to me. Let me do more than what is expected of me, and let me help the people who need my help. I call on You to be with me the entire shift, to keep me strong and smart and to help me accomplish all that I have to accomplish today.
Thank you God for never leaving my side and for giving me this opportunity to work here,
I’m going back to work tomorrow after a 3 week medical leave and I’m really feeling anxious about it. I really hope I do well tomorrow and I don’t mess up or appear incompetent.
I bought tailor-made shirts for work from my boyfriend’s tailor. I can’t wait to see how they turn out and I can’t wait to wear them to the office. Haha. These shirts will make me look professional at the office. :) It’s about time to look the part of a powerful woman. Oh yeaaah.
I still have no idea on how I’m going to accomplish this goal. All I know is, I want to be CEO level, supermom and be internationally-recognized by 2018. I don’t have the specifics yet but I plan to do this by living each day consciously, by learning something new everyday, by sharing what I know and what I have with those around me and by working damn smart and hard.
