International Motivational Speaker, Mentor & Author. Kitty keeps it short and simple. She uses daily conversations to explore how we can have crystal clear clarity to live the liberating and fulfilling life we all desire, to calmly and quietly live and speak our truth. It is all about differentiating our internal voice from the external noise. Only when we give ourselves the space to BE can we truly tune in and listen to what we need to hear and already know deep within us.
Many people believe that only when they are stable financially can they have the luxury to live and speak their truth, to pursue their love and passion, to truly be who they are.
Our life is shaped by every decision we make. Where we are is shaped by the decisions we made in the past. Where we will be, will be shaped by the decisions we make from now onwards.
Truth is not a LUXURY that we can't afford to have.
Truth is a NECESSITY that we can't afford NOT to have.

Are you losing your passion in your profession?
With the world changing so quickly, at times we feel how we have been operating is no longer valid. We may lose our passion for our profession. We may feel we need to move on or change our job.
If we allow ourselves to examine closely, it may not be the passion that is being lost, Rather, it's our thought and belief.
Changes can cloud our judgements. Changes can cloud our thoughts and beliefs. It is important that we give ourselves the time and space to be and stay clear with what's in our mind, and more importantly, what is in our heart.

It is very easy for us to say, "I am like this because I am Chinese" or "He is like that because he is American".
We are all somewhat culturally influenced. But how aware are we in terms of the way we speak, act or behave? Is it truly who we are or is it just how we are brought up?
It is easy to go into auto-pilot mode to live our life as it is, as we know it. But if it isn't a true representation of who we are regardless of our culture, what are we doing about it?
Culture can shape us but it doesn't have to make us.

Living an authentic life means we truly live our life – we draw our own map, we write our own stories and we define our own experiences. There is no blueprint unless we want someone else to tell us how to live our life.
The ART in Being and Doing lies in being:
– Aware of our thoughts, beliefs, feelings, energy
– Release what doesn’t serve us; and
– Transform the negative to positive for us to move forward

"Am I fitting in?"
Have you been asking yourself the question because of a new job, new home, new community or a new country?
It is never about fitting in. It's always about being WHO we are.
Why do we allow ourselves to think we have to "fit-in"? And why do we allow ourselves to think we are not good enough as WHO we are?
Act locally. Think globally. Metime. It all helps us diminish the need of having any company, supporting group or answers in life in living and speaking our truth on a daily and practical basis.
Food for thought.

We all want to live a truthful and authentic life. However, our focus on stability is often on the external issues, such as job, home or relationship.
What about being stable with our truth and being stable and true to WHO we are? Will we stick with and live by our own truth when we are asked to step out from our comfort zone and make drastic changes?
How truthful, externally and internally, a life are you living?

What sort of life do we want to lead?
Our current mindset, attitude and approach in life may be good for the life we have been leading but are they good enough for the fulfilling and truthful life we so want to live?
Do we make our important immediate life decisions with the big picture in mind? Or do we just want to get them dealt with so that we can move on?

How can we help ourselves to be clear with our thoughts and desires when we have yet to find that right mentor? All it takes is 5 mins a day to start off with.
We all have that 5 mins. The question is, ”Will we give ourselves that 5 mins daily to be still to tune in, mentor or not?”
The mind requires reasons, justifications, logics, rationales... The heart requires nothing other than a knowing.
A knowing without having to be understood.
A knowing without needing any reason, logic, rationale or justification.
Ever wonder why we only say "peace of mind" but never "peace of heart"?

Following the theme on The Key In Finding A Mentor, this session talks about the skills I would look for in a mentor.
It isn't about holding me accountable to achieve the tasks I set out to do, nor is it to inspire me to take the necessary action to develop and grow myself as who I am. It is more than that.
What skills do you look for in your mentor?

Whether we are going through changes in life or not, it's always good to have someone to talk to, to sound out all thoughts, to have someone hold up a mirror so that we can see what we can't see but need to see and to hear what we need to hear but can't hear.
There are many mentors out there. Many of us will check on their experiences, qualifications or reputations when choosing one.
However, there is one important element which most people don't pay attention to when choosing a mentor and this one element plays a crucial part in the success of it all.
When we are not mindful about what we say and how we think, we can easily lead ourselves into believing that we have no choices in life.
But is it true? And is that our truth?
When we choose to step up and look at our thoughts and words, peeling off the layers one by one, soon enough we will see there are more choices than we think there are. The truths which we need to embrace to live that truthful life we all want, is often what we are running away from.

Does living a life that is aligned with who we are require a lot of thinking? If yes, what exactly do we need to think about?
Life is about experiencing and experimenting. It isn't always about logic, rationale and reasons. Do we look for them because we truly need them? Or do we look for them because we need to satisfy our minds, justify our actions and quiet down the chatters?
If we need to ask questions, there is only one I would ask.

What is selfish? And what is self-love?
The fine line between selfish and self-love is indeed very fine. When we focus on what we love doing before attending to others, some may say we are selfish. But is it truly that wrong that we take care of ourselves first before others?
Another common yet sensitive and interesting topic arising during the shooting of RTHK 想點.
- Whose life are you living?
- Who gets to decide where that fine line is between selfish and selflove in your life?
Is what we do for living our job or our life? Are we even clear what that difference is?
In this episode, I discussed and explored what that difference is and what it takes to become the so-called "few lucky ones" who love what we do and are inspired by what we offer to others.
I also talked about why so many of us lose our self-confidence when we lose our job and what we can do to help us rise above the job title and the salary we are given.
Another reflection from filming for RTHK 香港電台, a programme called RTHK 想點 which is currently being aired every Tue at 8pm on Channel 31. Don't miss the opportunity to watch this thought-provoking programme. (Note: Cantonese speaking programme)

Many of us celebrate our birthdays every year. But what does birthday truly mean to us? What do we use our age for? Does our age truly matter in living a fulfilling life?
Age is nothing but a number. In this session, we explore how we knowingly and unknowingly let our age define, limit and condition us in living a full life.
#age #life #excuse #condition #limit #truth #fulfillment
As parents, we are never too busy or tired for the things we love if they truly matter to us. We can have it all. It just isn’t always right here right now. The key isn’t about making sacrifices; it is about knowing what is truly important to us.
In this episode, I talked about what the common issues many parents face and how we can resolve them to live a more fulfilling life as WHO we are, not simply being as parents.
We are more than who we think we are. Our intention can be bigger than we intend it to be.
Personal development isn't all about ourselves. It's collective. True meaning and development come from putting what we have learned and grown from into practice on ourselves as well as those around us. We don't grow by putting our learning into the cupboard or our library of certificates.
Small gesture based on our intention can have a profound impact on someone we may or may not know. Never underestimate our influence or power.

As the new year has begun, many will have new year resolutions. New year resolutions usually are task-based and often get forgotten as we go further along into the year. It is because they aren't that important to us.
Intention/intent setting is more meaningful and relevant if we are serious about our personal development and growth. It is broader in terms of the possible tasks to be included and yet a lot more focused as far as personal growth is concerned.
In this session, we explored how having an Intention/Intent for the year could benefit us far more than resolutions.
Let me know what your intention is for the year and feel free to leave me your thoughts and comment.
We often have an assessment at work each year. But what about a self-assessment done by ourselves?
How we see ourselves is just as if not more important as how we are perceived at work. As the year 2018 is approaching the end, it’s a good time to do one ourselves.
In this session, I will share what I look at when I review my year in 2018. It isn’t about what we have or haven’t achieved based on our To-do list if there is one. There is a lot more to it and yet it is of great significance to our truth and personal growth and development.

More and more of us find ourselves at a crossroad, waiting and wanting to make changes to live a more authentic and fulfilling life. But making new changes often means stepping out from our comfort zone and stepping into the unknown. And no, many of us don't like that and yet it is so crucial for us to step up and forward.
In this episode, I will talk about why we find it so difficult to step up and forward even for the happy and fulfilling life that we so want to have; what "trust life" truly means and; how we can start trusting life and, more importantly, in ourselves especially when we face big life challenges.
There is only one more episode left before the year-end. Do drop me a line if there is a topic that you'd like me to cover.

We all love giving our advice even when they are not asked. There has been an amazing amount of resources out there such as articles telling us what is good for us. The titles of such articles include, "These 4 rituals will change your life", "The 5 Keys to....." or "The 7 craziest ideas to...."
Do they really work? They must do if someone has written about it, no? If so, why so many of us are still looking and searching for the answers? Let's explore in this episode.

Change after change can be very tiring indeed. Living a truthful and authentic life may entail lots of changes or adjustments along the way. Once the process has started, it doesn't stop. And simply, we don't want it to stop.
So how best do we deal with it? More importantly, how do we deal with ourselves in the midst of it all?

Many of us have been searching, be it our path or the meaning of our life. When we feel we have found a connection with someone or something, we hope that it is the right path for us.
Every path will lead us to a spot. It doesn't matter if it's right or wrong. What matters is that we feel that there is a strong connection and that we allow the magic to happen in its own space.

What is the truth? What are the common misconceptions? And more importantly, why is it important and how do we connect and uncover our truth?
Our truth is instrumental in building and shaping our confidence, trust and faith in ourselves as well as in our lives. Explore it with me in this session.
Meditation doesn't require us to do anything other than sitting still. Yet, so many of us find it difficult.
Let's explore some of the misconceptions on meditation and how we can all find our own ways to have a calm mind as well as a calm heart without necessarily sitting down with our eyes closed.
Not all relationships are created or meant to be equal. We can be more of a taker in some and a receiver in others. When we want a bit of everything if not all of everything from each and every relationship we have, it be with our partners, friends or family members, we are putting tension and strain into it.
By understanding and knowing what gift each relationship has in store for us, we become more allowing and accepting of those around us, and more importantly, with and within ourselves. Only when relationships are given the space to be cultivated and nurtured, can they become mutually beneficial even when we are the sole giver.
We are so accustomed to giving our advice, comments or self-help materials to those who are going through tough time. At times, the best way to support each other in our journey is to simply give time and space to allow us to grow and be.
