To Scale Up, Coach Up……. Power in a Coach

Wow…. The best of the best and one of the world’s most wealthiest man (Bill Gates) with about 75 Billion dollars under his belt, has a coach / an advisor in his financial matters (Larsdon)…. Tony Robbins, the worlds most sort after coach has a coach. who gets paid (very well might I say) for advice…. some understand the true value of what it takes to pay for the right advise.

So what’s stopping our up and coming budding… employee, analyst, managers, VP, to grasp this idea and work diligently towards a balanced wealthy life with the help of a coach? Their lack of understand of what the coach can do and does for the individual. Just as in sport a coach helps fine tune the athlete in his / her performance, similarly in life or any matters of life a coach helps fine tune that aspect of it for the individual. In some countries this concept of coaching for life performance is still at its infancy. Many who pluck up enough courage to ask, feel its normal and ok to do so, without considering to pay of that service.

Basically it is proprietary right, knowledge / experience and applicability of that wisdom that gets that coach to provide the prudent advise. the more mature markets of the west have had this concept of seeking advise / support from  a coach and paying for it…. In some of the less mature market of self development, and despite the fact that they heard of the term they do not engage a coach for guiding them through specific matters of life be it personal or professional. Instead they approach their friend, their neighbor etc…. That’s good, but many lack the foresight to understand, in most cases that friend or neighbor is earning just as much as the individual seeking the advise. The question then is how can someone earning the same level of income, or, have the same experience help that individual to earn (50 or 100) % more – that individual will not have that process mentally such that they could provide the right guidance.

With a Coach, their Return on Investment would be far greater than asking a peer, similar level friend, a person with similar exposure? simple question to ask of oneself…. would you approach a GP doctor to perform a cardiac surgery, or would you approach a cardiologist, similarly would we ask a person earning Rs 30K to provide advice on how to earn Rs 1L. The answer goes without saying… a resounding No. Then why is it when it comes to Life matters (Career movement, Financial Growth, Recreational & Social Growth, Spiritually growth) do we fall back and accept the unacceptable. Many would remark, It’s only Life!….. When we treat Life that way, Life knows no better but to return that back to us…. the way we treat that LIFE. (the true understanding of the Law of Attraction)

This is primary caused due to lack of awareness, lack of exposure, lack of understand … what the power of a coach can do… It’s a MINDSET Shift … It does take some time for this switch to happen mentally. To understand, it is ok to ask for advice and ok to appropriately reimburse for it, and not be hurdled by upbringing or culturally norms…. that if one asks. what would other think of me…

The culture of Coaching and paying for it in some developing countries is still in its infancy…. When this is understood, the exponential, holistic growth that transpires is priceless. World Look out then.

Malaysia 2nd Independence – Bersih 4

I have had many personal queries and comments on my global posts of Bersih sent out during this week. Many have quipped why bring politics into what I promote and stand for in my work with empowerment of people.

Bersih 4Bersih, is not just a street March, It is the tipping point for this nation.

Malaysia has weathered a fabulous journey of growth, prosperity and this is not shown just in the physical infrastructure that surrounds the nation today, but more in its people, a tribe (I felt the urge for a social media term), that is well educated; in country and some have settled in various parts of the world. Many had claimed that brain drain on the country loosing such caliber of people in 60’s, 70’s, 80’s & 90’s, to another country, could have been stopped if ……. (The reasons are numerous – not for this blog).

A tribe with a special type of Comradeship, a twig in its flavor, of how it deals and interacts with people…. That innate flavor (a special blend of the east and the west) is rarely found elsewhere, in the colonized world, Lah! This is one part of what the people are fighting for today, in particular freedom.

The other outcomes expected are:Bersih 4 street rally

• Free & fair elections,
• Transparent government,
• Strengthen the parliamentary system,
• Save the national economy,
• Right to Dissent.

Leaving all of this aside, the last thing we do not want to see is where our parents, migrants from India, China and other parts of the world came to this country with the HOPE of providing something better for their children. They toiled hard and contributed to where we are today and where the nation was in the lime light days. We cannot had over to our children (even if they are living abroad – the homing instinct for Malaysia is there amongst them) a broken nation. Bersih is the unified force to create that change……

Bersih 4 flagMalaysia it’s time for a CHANGE…

It’s time for our 2nd Independence.

I would like to share the views of the former president of the Bar Association in Malaysia and Co – Chairperson of Bersih…. Ambiga Sreenevasan.

Unfortunately the Malaysian Government, yesterday has banned a number of website, in it’s bid to curtail freedom of speech…. This was one site that was targeted by the government. there are other ways to circumvent the hurdle….

Happy Independence Day – India 2015

On 14th February 2014, the Indian Supreme Court recognized transgender people as a third gender, with equal opportunity within India. The transgender community’s acknowledgement of this significant move, by their singing the Indian National Anthem Jana–Gana–Mana. (Explanation for foreign viewers to appreciate and understand)

Gandhi satyagrahaTo the rest of India, HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY. 59 years ago the Gandhi movement liberated this nation from British rule.

As one of the major economies for the last few centuries prior to British rule, India as a nation was raped and brought to its knees as a poverty stricken third world country during the British rule.

Its it wisdom, mother land England felt it in order to rob India of its resources and when Independence was granted there was little left of it to make a full meal off. Most if not all of its resources was redistributed through Britain to other parts of the world.

From that black hole of Calcutta (East India Company – the British trading house), a new nation was born…. through the girt and tenacity of  our parents, who lived on porridge as staple meal, to ensure their investment – their child was educated. Today that child is the birth of a newgandhi peace (1) nation – THE NEW INDIA…. They have and are conquering the world through their skill, expertise and knowledge… A passive Movement, the sleeping giant is just awakening…… The Pepsi, the Microsoft, the Googles of the world have recognized this, and many more in the not too distant future will.

Jai Hind

(Hindi salutation referring to patriotism towards India “Hail India”

The Ocean’s Cry……

A world power pack team, collaborated together in forming an organization called “Conservation International.”

ocean bedTheir focus is on a wide range of topics related to ecosystems, biodiversity, and human well-being, all around the world, with the intent of creating social awareness of what we as humans do without any rhyme or reason to this planet.

Friends it has gone for ages, where we unknowingly have tortured and raped this world, and still continue to do so without any remorse. This would have been forgivable a few century’s ago, and we would have brushed it off, by saying we did not know.

Today, friends in this world of technology, that is just but a lame excuse. We are more educated, more aware, more conscious, more, more, more, but what do we do…. Still torture & rape this planet.

Take heed friends…. here is their first message…..Ocean bed starfish
The voice of the Ocean……Our life Savior, our feed, our everything, is sharing its feeling, its cry, its pain, …its dying anguish through this video.…..

Genocide of Rohingya

Genocide – a treat to the Rohingya race, a minority group within the Burmese community …. Rejected from all its neighboring countries, in an unseemly regional Ariel Ping Pong game. Burma Refugee

Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, leader of the Burmese opposition is SILENT on this matter.

Other Regional governments of Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Thailand. Malaysia have commented publicly they should not carry the burden of housing the Rohingya on their own.is not theirs to shoulder alone.

As commented by the Malaysian Deputy Home Minister Wan Junaidi Jaafar, “We cannot welcome them here,” when asked why by CNN his response was simple to the point “If we continue to welcome them, then hundreds of thousands will come from [Burma] and Bangladesh.”

Malaysia, a second tier, young, third world country – thirty year old….. Still needs to understand the basic human element of compassion, treatment of others with dignity…. I suppose if one does not have these traits (and their own bank account for these traits are empty) one would find it had to provide or even display it…. Its is bascis such as these that consolidates and strengthens a nation…. Unfortunately, only a few understand such concept. That is what puts first tier countries like US, Australia, some of the north European nations apart in its approach to treatment of its citizens and the eye to care for the displaced….

Burma Refugee Plight-of-the-Rohingya-People-Image-4A truly worthwhile understanding for the up and coming youth leaders to catch on to for the scale up of their developing nations…..
When one looks at it from the basic plight (need) of an individual, the lotus will bloom…Lots of learning for many…. On both sides of the court….. Those who house the refugees, and those who reject the refugees.

 

God Bless. David Nair

End of an Era for Singapore…..

We, today mark the end of an era for Singapore, as Mr Lee Kuan Yew (commonly referred to as LKY) who passed away on the 23rd March 2015 is laid to rest…. Points to ponder on the mark of a great Statesmen….51DWYZY76QL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_ LKY

This is what he had to say in a recent interview…….

“I have no regrets. I have spent my life, so much of it, building up this country. There’s nothing more that I need to do. At the end of the day, what have I got? A Successful Singapore. What have I given up? MY LIFE.”

Two key views on Leadership that LKY always drove and lived by……..

  1. “I’m very determined. If I decide what something is worth doing, then I’ll put my heart and soul to it. The whole ground can be against me, but if I know it is right, I’ll do it. That’s the business of a leader.”
  2. “The task of the leaders must be to provide or create for them a strong framework within which they can learn, work hard, be productive and be rewarded accordingly. And this is not easy to achieve.”

LKY – views on Life…….

  1. “Life is not just eating, drinking, television and cinema…The human mind must be creative, must be self-generating; it cannot depend on just gadgets to amuse itself.”

Have a fruitful Life…… Cheers David Nair

Traditional notion of God – outdated?

My Oh my, as a flow on from my Blog article of yesterday….. “The Divine Within”

I just got to read this message from Pope Francis…. Totally lifts the lid for Christians who had a mixed feeling

As so rightly put by Pope Francis…. “The traditional nation of God is outdated” ….

Goodness – in the treatment of Self, a fellow human, another living species, pope Francis on GodNature…. Etc… etc. are all, to put it very simplistically, acts of godliness.

Basically it’s the values that unfold within a person that puts him on one end of the continuum or the other towards being spiritually fulfilled.

These core values do not happen overnight nor are they knighted upon an individual because of a label they have acquired either at birth or through time.

Instead it is osmosisized from the environment, parents, family, friends, people associated with and the list is endless…. These values are nurtured and over time become the fundamentals on which that person lives by and impacts others…
