Week 7 and 8 of 2011

Hello again,

Well…. time flies… doesn’t it? I have been so… busy and missed writing week 7 in the actual week, so I have wrapped it with week 8.

No matter where we work and where we live, I think many of us have been involved in providing some kind of assistance toward people who have been affected by the natural disasters just happened in the past 4 weeks. After being in draught for several years, we suddenly had heavy rains for days that caused flooding in the Northern states of Australia followed by Cyclone Yasi and then this week Christchurch New Zealand was hit by a 6.3 earthquake.

It is a very sad time for us and I believe that many of us have put a lot of effort to help family, friends and strangers affected by these disasters. Let’s keep doing the right thing and pray for them.

While using our energy toward positive and kind acts for others, let’s also maintain our own health and well being. Self care is always very important in order to be able to help others.

Since Valentine’s day the 14th of February 2011 I have been gradually changing my activity, eating and sleeping habits to improve my health and well being. For example, going to bed at least half an hour earlier, eating more at lunch time and less at night, doing at least 10 minutes physical exercise each day, replace 1 meal per day with Nutriway protein shake and take vitamins daily. To date, I have reduced my measurements and my weight but increased my alertness, energy level happiness. I feel great…..! You may want to try this method and see how it works for you.

If you are already well, happy, healthy, wealthy and content, that is great and I hope you can maintain your current situation. To ensure that you stay motivated, I recommend that you  read and listen to a lot of interpersonal development literature.

I am currently developing some materials for a workshop for women. Keep your eye open for the invitation and hope to see you there.

Kind Regards,

Coach Tenny.




Week 6 of 2011


How are you doing…? Had a good week?

I finished work early today and spent the afternoon & evening in town with my loving hubby.

We had our usual delicious lunch in China Town, walked to the mall and Rundle St after to have coffee, banana bread and gellati. It has become our Friday afternoon’s ritual now and we thoroughly enjoy ourselves spending our quality time that way.

We didn’t plan to shop but we managed to buy ourselves a few new clothes.

The weather was a little different today. It rained quite hard this morning and was rather humid but cooled down toward the end of the day when the sun started to go down. We usually get some cool breeze as well at that time of the early evening.

Town was quite busy today, there were people everywhere. I think that the main reason for that was because of the Fringe Festival as well. This happens every second year in Adelaide with many artists and comedians coming from all over the nation and from other countries as well.

I love the atmosphere of the multicultural surrounding. Full of life and happiness. That’s what it’s all about. I just love happy, positive and motivational or inspirational environment. I am not the type to embrace negativity. I avoid negativity whenever I can. It does a lot of good for me. It keeps me young and energetic. I simply refuse to be negative. It’s just a choice or decision I make and has certainly kept me healthy and happy that way.

Try to maintain your positive and inspirational attitude whenever you can. To do this easier, read interpersonal develoopment books 15 minutes per day, listen to motivational audio or video 15 minutes per day and position yourself amoung positive, motivated and inspirational people.

You will be surprise how successful you will be with whatever you choose to do. That’s just how it is. Positive attitude gives you success.

Take care,

Love you all,

Coach Tenny




Week 5 of 2011

Hi again,

Well… well…well… 2011 is certainly flying… so… fast…!

January is already gone and it’s already the 10th of February, which is actually week 6 of this year. So… I owe you one. I will have to write week 6 within the next couple of days. I promise I will.

If you are or you feel fortunate at the moment, away from the natural disaster zones, it is time to be thankful and grateful.

Without being negative or focusing too much on the unfortunate situations, let’s just pray for the unfortunate people who have been affected by the disasters. Let’s be generous and help with what we can.

It is quite ironic, we have people who have been highly affected by the disasters that are completely out of our control, yet I still notice many people who are in much better positions complain a lot about life, work, circumstance, health and so on.

Isn’t that sad…?

If you would like assistance how to remain strong, motivated and positive and then use your energy to help others in need, let me know, I can help you through one on one coaching sessions, group workshops and having accesss to the best motivational audio or reading materials.

There may be a lot of negativity happening around us at the moment. However, you have the power to remain strong, faithful and true to yourself.

Hang-on to all of your qualities like your principles, belief, integrity, strength, aspiration, inspiration, motivation and positive attitude.

Having positive attitude is the best attribute that will take a long way in life. If you maintain your positive attitude, YOU WILL SUCCEED.


Take care and share your love,

Coach Tenny


The Currency of the Future by Brad DeHaven

Hi Everyone,

I am reading a book called “The Currency of the Future” by Brad DeHaven. He said that when you know this, you control your destiny.

He said that The BIG Three, Emotional Intelligence (EQ), Financial Intelligence (FQ) and Relational Intelligence (RQ) are more important than high IQ. I completely agree with him as I have experienced the positive effects from the application of the BIG Three.

According to Brad that in order to succeed, you need to decide what you want first, i.e. what is your DREAM? Then you need to set our GOALS, i.e. by when do you want to achieve what you want? Then put in place a good PLAN how to get there and then make EFFORT to achieve your DREAM.


Most of us going around and around the circle putting huge amount of efforts doing work without knowing where we really want to achieve apart from finishing your boss’ jobs just so we can pay our bills and eat. We just simply use the money to get by without any significant DREAM.

It’s ironic isn’t it. Have you ever gone on a vacation without first decide where you want to go? Can you imagine that? You can’t even book an airline or train ticket without knowing where you want to go really. Yet we do that with our lives.

It’s no different to your life journey, you have to decide exactly what you want and where you want to go, otherwise you would just go around and around chasing your tails.

So… as of today, first of all, sit down, grab a piece of paper and a pen and list 100 things that you want to achieve by the time you are a certain age or by such and such time. Put down next to each of them how you will feel when you achieve them. When emotion is attached it means a lot to you, which means you will do whatever it takes to achieve them.

Set up a plan how you are going to achieve each and everyone of them and by when. Keep doing the tasks and the process persistently until you achieve them without stopping.

This paragraph resonates to me:

“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.” Antoine Exupery.
