🎵🎶 Have you ever felt so strong
That it made you feel weak
And you just can't sleep
Have you ever been so sure
That it gave you cold feet
That felt all bare
You can feel your 💖 heart beat
Well I never knew this feeling never
Now I hope it stays and lasts forever
I am riding high
I don't want to come down
Hope my wings don't fail me now
And If I can touch the sky
I'd risk to fall just to know how it feels to fly
- Alicia Keys "How It Feels to Fly"
. =========================== .
Don't be afraid to take risks and fall. Nothing is worse than regretting you didn't. It's time to fly and really live. Have faith, hope and trust.
On the weekend I get to have my little free time to hang out with my lovely girlfriend for Dinner at Mandarin Oriantal Hotel.
I have been working really hard lately.
I love my job so much. Some classes give me so much joy and powerful energy and some classes also alert me to be aware more with my own self that i can be better and more.
I am here to say that I am grateful for everything I have.
Enjoy the wonderful life 🙏🏻 #mandarinoriental#grateful#motivation#motivate#inspired
A pyramid scheme they said.
A shake diet they said.
You’d never make any money they said.
One of those scams they said.
2 years later, a gazillion of gold nutrition awards 🥇a house 🏡 a 15 people family holiday ✈️ x2 free holidays🏝reduced work hours 🙌🏼 a combined team of over 500 people 👥 growing pay checks 🤑 and a lifestyle we could only have dreamed of (already)😅
One of the best pieces of advice I ever had - never take advice from someone you wouldn’t traded places with 🤓
We are surrounded by people who love to give us a piece of their opinion (no matter how educated or uneducated it might be) but guess what ... you can’t go through life living through what other people think 💁🏻♀️
Eternally gratefully to Dale for always leading the way ♥️
When you think you have everything figured out.. BUT YOU DON’T. This is kinda heavy friends. But it’s why I am barely posting/engaging on here.
I know all you see on my IG stories are of me having fun, all happy, going out, exploring, and what not.
But in all honesty, what you don’t see is me at my apartment feeling depressed because I am feeling discouraged with this job hunt. And it’s taking a toll on me where I find myself crying when people asks me, “How are you?”
I’ve contemplated if I should share this with the IG world.
A part of me is like, “No Steph, don’t show them that you’re weak. Don’t show them that you’re not okay.” but the other part of me is saying, “Steph, it’s okay. You’re a strong person to even share this with them because you may help someone who’s in the same position as you.”
For the most part, I am in a good place. And I know I can get through this. I have the mindset to push through and believe that the right job will come at divine timing.
If you are dealing with something similar, my take away on this friends is:
- Have a positive mindset that good things are coming.
- Talk to your close friends or family and let them know how you are feeling. Sometimes all you need to do is vent.
- It’s okay to cry.
- Read a book, listen to podcasts, or watch anything that will help you get out of that negative depressed mindset.
- NEVER GIVE UP, because GOOD THINGS ARE COMING.
I am there with you friends. I believe in you.
Love & Light,
The world is changed by your example, not by your opinion.
In a time when our Facebook feeds are filled with opinions about politics it’s nice to be reminded of this. And it’s so true. We can spout our opinions all day and it may make us feel good to do so, but telling our opinion DOES NOT change someone else’s. What causes us to change our minds about something? Seeing the way someone else acts or responds in a given situation.
This idea not only works when discussing politics, but also religion. Think how many people may be turned away by someone telling their opinion about the way you should act. But rather someone may be inspired to see the world differently by a simple act of kindness.
It works in parenting too. You can “tell” your child all day that you want him to read so he can be a better reader. But children that see adults setting the example and being a reader are more likely to become a reader too.
In teaching, I can mark with a red pen all over a student’s paper and tell him my opinion of his writing. “Sloppy!” “No emotion.” “Incorrect grammar!” “Idea not developed enough.” “Need more elaboration.” But telling him my opinion makes no difference. Instead if I were to show him an example of what I mean and model good writing for him, it will have a greater impact on his writing.
In writing, we develop our character’s traits by showing the way they respond or act to different situations. The example you set (good or bad) and the actions you take in life are what show your true character. When you want to develop a believable character you show this through his example or actions.
In writing, in real life, on Facebook, when parenting, or when teaching, talk is cheap. It’s your actions that will change (or form) people’s opinions.
We #hear the term more and more now - #selfcare, mostly because #life seem to have become more #complex. There are a lot of moving parts all the time. 🔝🔜🔚🔙🔛
Because of this #complexity we #want to find a way to #escape our #reality to #relax, to #meditate, to get a #massage, to go away to a #quiet place, to dress up, to see a #therapist.
If we #created a life for ourselves where we wouldn’t need to escape from what we created, that would be the true form of self care. We would love ourselves so much that we wouldn’t put ourselves in #situations that make us #stressed or #worried or have #dislike for self.
While we #engage in the former kind of self care we can still create the latter; a life we don’t need to escape from. A life we thoroughly #enjoy that brings us no #stress or #worry. Create life differently, practice self care.
Swiss Bank Corporation was a large integrated financial services company located in Switzerland. Prior to its merger, the bank was the third largest in Switzerland with over CHF 300 billion of assets and CHF 11.7 billion of equity.
Throughout the 1990s, SBC engaged in a large growth initiative, shifting its focus from traditional commercial banking into investment banking, in an effort to match its larger Swiss rival Credit Suisse. As part of this strategy, SBC acquired US-based investment bank Dillon Read & Co. as well as London-based merchant bank S.G. Warburg in the mid-1990s. SBC also acquired Chicago-based Brinson Partners and O'Connor & Associates. These acquisitions formed the basis for a global investment banking business.
In 1998, SBC merged with Union Bank of Switzerland to form UBS, the largest bank in Europe and the second largest bank in the world. The company's logo, which featured three keys, symbolizing "confidence, security, and discretion", was adopted by UBS after the 1998 merger. Although the combination of the two banks was billed as a merger of equals, it quickly became evident that from a management perspective, it was SBC that was buying UBS as nearly 80% of the top management positions were filled by legacy Swiss Bank professionals. Today, what was SBC forms the core of many of UBS's businesses, particularly UBS Investment Bank . . .
