Coaching – Communication – Identification of Your Dream and Potential

Please bear in mind that coaching is more about brain-storming, questioning from the coach and empowerment for you to finally find the right answers, meeting your personal needs. Technically, the only right answers for you is your own answers that suit you best as a result of your exploration, analysation, brain storming and discussion with your coach. Your coach would ask you questions to empower you in becoming more aware and clear of your goals and your strategies.

There is never the right answers that other people can give you, as you are the only one who knows exactly what you want, where you are at and where you want to go?

To identify your dream, my  suggestion is to sit down and do a mind mapping exercise of your personal goals, something that you really would love to have and do in an ideal world, or if time,  money, culture or religion is no object. This will help you identify your goals or dreams.

To discover your potential, explore and do another mind mapping about the things that you have done best at without much effort in achieving results. That will give you an idea or identification of your potential, what you are really good at. And then think if this is something you love as well. If that’s the case, you would be sure what your potential is.

By identifying your dream and your potential, you can hopefully pin point if most of the things you love doing and you are good at match what you are doing now for a job, hobby or business. If that’s the case, perfect..! If not, maybe it is time to explore and make a change to do something that suits your dream and potential, so that you can be more satisfied with your life.

I hope that helps you.

To conduct an information interview, the main theory is making sure that you ask open questions related to whatever information you need or want to know. Open questions are questions that require the person to give details in answering your questions. An open question is not a leading question or a close question that only require short answers or a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer.

What to say to a CEO, it depends what industry the CEO is of and depends what result you expect from that CEO. My suggestion is to do your research about the industry and to get to know the CEO’s agenda by reading up on his/her strategical future/direction. If you want the CEO to be impressed by you, I would say how much you like his/her plans and that you are supportive of it and want to be part of the project.

I hope that helps. Here is something I found that may help you. This book is about answering job interviews but you can reverse it by using those questions. Enjoy.

All the best,


Achieving Your Dreams

Someone taught me a long time ago that it is very important to make a list of your goals (dreams) if you want to achieve them. When your dream is compelling, it stays in your mind and it manifests into your subconscious mind, which then attracks all the things and actions to take you to it.

When I was in the early 20s, I was looking through a book about historical buildings in Europe. As I was looking through the pictures and reading about them, I was absolutely impressed by them. I then thought that one day I would love to see those buildings with my own eyes.

I know that it seems a long time since I thought (dreamed) about it. However, because that thought was so… compelling in my mind and I really wanted it to happen, even though it seemed impossible to achieve at that time, it must have stayed in my mind so… strongly, because, thirty years later (recently), after achieving many other goals along the way, I achieved that particular dream to visit those historical buildings in Europe that I saw in that book 30 years ago. It was a brilliant experience and I am now working on even bigger and better goals (dreams).

The point I am trying to make is that if you believe, you will achieve.

I can help you achieve more strength within yourself. So you can focus, believe and take action on your dreams.

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.

Setting Goals

  • Setting goal is one of the most important part of the process to reach your success, because, unless you have specific and clear goals, you will not be able to concentrate on the right path to reach your destination. Without specific goals, you will be lost.
  • Yes, I agree, it’s easy said than done. If you are not used to planning and setting goals, learn from your coach and practice to do this.
  • No matter what happens out there, focus on your own dreams and values while learning from what’s happening around you.
  • There is no coincidence why good things happen to you.
  • Most likely, you had a dream, kept developing it in your mind and attracting yourself towards various actions to get you to your destination and before you know it you are there.
  • Keep focusing. Focus… Focus… Focus…! and avoid being swayed by external influences and other people’s values that get in your way. Your coach can help you do this professionally and gracefully without hurting anyone’s feelings.
  • Dream…, stick to your own values and follow your heart.
  • You deserve to achieve your own dreams and values.
  • These processes are often not easy to do. Find a reliable professional coach who will help you with this.
