How are you? Hope you’re having a beautiful week so far.
I was in India last June 10-13, 2019 and it was magical. It almost felt like Aladdin.
Let me share magical lessons with you during my recent trip in India.
1. Keep planting… harvest is coming!
Last June 12, I was awarded by the United Nations Global Entrepreneur Council as the Female Entrepreneur of the Year – Philippines. The awarding ceremony happened in Chennai, India. More than 15 countries participated.
I learned that there were about 3,700 applications and nominations and only 50 people were awarded. I was one of the two Filipinos who were awarded. The other one was Ram Olandesca who received the Edupreneur of the Year award.
I asked the organizers, “How did you learn about me?”
I asked because I didn’t apply for the award. I was nominated by the organizing committee.
The person I asked replied, “We’ve been following you for the past 6 months. We see what you do. We love what you do. Someday, we’d like to invite you to teach kids how to write books.”
So the lesson I got there was this, “Keep planting… harvest is coming!”
God is working behind the scenes. He has your best interest. Just keep serving people through your gifts and talents. And God will surprise you with a bountiful harvest.
The reward I got was so prestigious and I am very grateful. But with or without the reward, I’ll still be doing what I’m doing. The reward is great because it’s an affirmation that what I do matter… not just in the Philippines, but on a global scale.
2. The Right People Will Come To You.
On my last day in India, I met two people who floored me.
The first person I met is a trainer and an owner of a training company in India. He said that he had about 500 unread messages in his inbox but for some reason, he got inspired to open my message to him.
He said, “One word caught my attention. Gratitude. You speak on The Power of Gratitude. I like Gratitude.”
He’s been in the training/speaking industry in India for over 20 years and he has over 1,200 corporate clients.
He said, “I’d love to work with you. I speak on Leadership. I can recommend you to speak on Gratitude to my corporate clients.”
You don’t have to please everyone because you can’t.
Focus on your message. Focus on doing what your mind and heart tell you to do. And the right people will come to you.
That’s it for today.
I hope this email inspired you in a way.
I wish you success and happiness!
P.S. Are there days when you don’t fully accept yourself? Are there days when you’re not at peace with yourself? Do you sometimes feel insecure?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, I can relate with you.Here’s something for you.
