Overcome my fear

It's time to overcome my fear, the fear that keeps me from doing what I have to do. Fear is no longer an excuse. What has to be done is to be done no matter what.

It's also time to remind myself again and again that I CANNOT do only what I love. There are many things that people hate but they have to do them and I'm not the exception.

I'll make it big and I'll make those involved proud of their own achievement.

A Note for June 2017

Dear June,

Today is the first day of July and I already miss you.

Thanks for always being nice to me every year. Thanks for always giving me courage, hope, and strength. This year, you let me overcome my fear and unleash potential that I didn't even know that it exists. I know that I have to make things happen and be result-oriented.

Lots of love,

A dream

A dream! A dream that tells me that I am missing my old life. I was sitting with some old faces at IFL who were smiling and chit-chatting. One of them was explaining to me about my schedule and what I had to do. Although I was not sure what I had to do and I couldn't find my schedule, I was very confident that I could do the job because it was simply dealing with these youngsters whom I had managed before. Woken up by the little one's cry, I realized that it was just a dream. I know that I miss my old self and I can't stay at one place. I need to move forward, and that's the direction I am heading to.

 The confidence, the trust in myself in the dream, is what I need at the moment, and I strongly believe that sometime later on in the future, I will come back to this post and tell myself that I am confident in my new job.

You can do it

Things will be okay. With your best efforts, you can be reassured that things will be fine. Keep your chin up and think positively. It's all about planning and managing. You are tasked to do it because he trust you and believe that you can do it. Others can do it! You can also do it! Be optimistic and Keep learning! You may start with crawling, but it's important that you reach the destination, and you will, Thida!

It will pass

This time will pass. It's not the end of the world and it is not the biggest mistake in life that I should be scared of. It's simply a carelessness which is teaching me to be careful with surrounding people. It will pass soon. Don't panick. It is a life experience and I should be thankful for learning it on my path to be better leader. Things'll be fine!

Spread love

"Whatever you do, do it with your genious intentions so that you don't have any doubts of what people suspecioisly think of what you do." This is my life principle. I am sharing love with people I work with and I am sure that at least a few of them are spreading this love to others.
I may not be always paid with love in return of my good deeds but I know that I will be often helped in some ways because of my honesty and good will. Keep doing good things, Thida!

I bought one scarf for each staff member as an appreciation of their hard work and support and I mean it. I'm happy that they are excited about it. #spreadlove

Why? Why?

I've been trying to understand reasons why I was not selected for that leadership training. I am capable, qualified, and in a position that matches with all of the requirements. Why not me? Because I was once involved in the ELT training? Or because they think I've got plenty of opportunities of this kind of training in my current position as a campus manager? Or because they are given this to the potential younger ones? All of these are logical and I were trying to accept them but I still couldn't until I received an email this morning from one of the TTP Cambodian teachers that he has been selected for the training. I'm so happy for him. I lost it to the young qualified man whose bright future is waiting. As a leader, I always want these people to grow professionally!
