My key takeaway from this unit is that my journey is unique to me and I have full control of the experience I get from the things that happens in my life. I can be negative and become a victim or I can choose to see all the things that happened to me as positive. Coming from an Asian background, there is a great social pressure to be just like everyone else and people gossip a lot if you do things differently. For example, my uncle always tell me I jump jobs too much and it's best to stay on a job for longer term. His reasons and justifications will be different from mine so there is no comparison. I'm much more confident about my choices, priorities and path now. It's not about having the perfect life but living life to the fullest! xx Grace
Through this exercise, I am able to see that I have a strong vision of what I would like to achieve. I can see that any sacrifices I make now, will be rewarded later. I find that I am already being selective with my social friends and putting myself out there by attending networking events. Networking is not something I'm comfortable of doing being an introvert but I realise that my desire to connect and learn is much greater than that. So for me, being aware of the pros and cos and what really drives me helps me stay on my track. This exercise also helps me be aware of the potential pit-falls so I can consciously prepare.
I'm starting a venture (on top of my full time work) and was starting to waver because I see many people doing similar things but this meditation helps strengthen my inner desire to help and connect to people. I realise that I have a unique story and I have something to offer to the world.
