Finishing Your Year 2016 Strong

By Jacklyn | August 22, 2016

Positive mindset in the morning

Every year many people start with huge goals and dreams. Now, we are left with less-than 5 months to end 2016. Have you reviewed your goals? How are they doing?

If due to whatever reasons, your goals seems still far fetch, I strongly encourage you to go back to the basics… I find the 3 main necessary steps of goal setting by Peng Joon is very helpful and I’ve put his article for your reading. Wishing you success!

Effective goal setting comes in 3 main steps.


When it comes to planning your year, the most important thing is for you to have clarity.

You need to know what you want to begin with.

So the first step is to think about, and be clear on what you want to achieve this year.

Now most people stop here. They list down what they want and that’s it. That’s like putting an image of a sports car on your desktop wallpaper. Nothing happens.


Many times, people tell me: “Peng Joon, I want to make a million dollars this year.”

Well, that’s a great goal.

But the next step, after knowing what you want, is knowing why you want it.

What I always tell people is that once you know what you want, you need to have clarity on your “why”.

So you want to make a million dollars…. the question now is why?

I list down about 10 things that I want to accomplish during the year – but instead of thinking about accomplishing them, I think about “why”. This is something you should be doing, too.


Because if you can figure out the “why”, then you can figure out the “how”.


These are the steps. The mechanics. It needs to be specific and actionable.

Ineffective: I will go to the gym 3 times a week.
Effective: I will complete the p90X fitness program and complete all 90 days from start to end. I will limit my carbs intake by one bowl of rice a day.

So as a quick recap:

To be able to plan things out and make 2016 your best year ever, you need to:

1. Know WHAT you want to do
2. Know WHY you want to do it
3. List HOW are you going to do it

If you can plan these three things out next to each other, then you’ll have a compelling reason to take action.

So, I hope this post has helped you in terms of planning to finish your year strong, and will enable you to really have the best year ever!

As always, if you found value in this post, please feel free to leave a comment below and let me know.

May 2016 be an amazing and incredible year filled with happiness, love, peace and everything else that you could wish for

A Good Life Contains These 6 Essentials – Jim Rohn

By Jacklyn | October 27, 2014

The values that make up the foundation of a life well lived—and, no surprise, money isn’t one of them.

The ultimate expression of life is not a paycheck. The ultimate expression of life is not a Mercedes. The ultimate expression of life is not a million dollars or a bank account or a home. The ultimate expression of life is living a good life.

Here’s what we must ask constantly, “What, for me, would be a good life?” And you have to keep going over and over the list—a list including areas such as spirituality, economics, health, relationships and recreation.
So, what would constitute a good life? Jim Rohn has a short list:

1. Productivity
You won’t be happy if you don’t produce. The game of life is not rest. Yes, we must rest, but only long enough to gather strength to get back to productivity.

What’s the reason for the seasons and the seeds, the soil and the sunshine, the rain and the miracle of life? It’s to see what you can do with it—to try your hand to see what you can do.

2. Good friends    Read the rest of this entry »

A Journey of Forgiveness

By Jacklyn | June 15, 2014

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” ~ Lewis B. Smedes

One of the secrets to happiness, peace of mind and good health is being able to free our minds of any anger, hatred or resentment towards others. While it is only human to feel angry and resentment towards those who have wronged you, it takes a true winner to be able to understand and forgive.

Recently, I have my fair share of people who have intimidated, humiliated, betrayed and wronged me. I was hurt and it took me a month’s journey to face the world again..

I would like to share a talk by Ellen Rutledge whose son was brutally murdered but chose to forgive her son’s killers… If she can learn to forgive the unforgivable, we can certainly learn to forgive the petty arguments or misunderstandings we have with our friends, family and colleagues. Ellen was one of the inspirational speakers at TEDx Ironwood, standing onstage along with prisoners, performers, educators and administrators to tell her story of forgiveness. Ellen’s son was tragically murdered in 2008. She expanded on the power of forgiveness, and how it can bring freedom for both all parties. She now works at Ironwood State Prison, where their focus upon education and rehabilitation fits perfectly with Ellen’s own philosophy.
