1๏ธโƒฃ What it means to stay above your happiness baseline daily.

2๏ธโƒฃ Allowing your Mind to Settle and not rush the journey

3๏ธโƒฃ It is all about Mind-Setting, not goal-setting.

4๏ธโƒฃ It is okay to not be at your 100% all the time. Don’t beat yourself up.

5๏ธโƒฃ Mental health affects us not just mentally and emotionally but biologically, too.

6๏ธโƒฃ Learn to be a healthier version of ourselvesย before we learn to be a better version of a leader.

+ Waking Up is an unconscious effort
+ Rising Up is a conscious effort
+ Anything worth doing requires a conscious mind.
+ We cannot make conscious effort a habit
+ But we can make a habit of making conscious choices.

A big kudos to Aileen Tan, Group Chief People and Sustainability Officer and her team of Avengers, who believe in the power of mental and emotional transformation and activating this movement in Singtel.

In the meantime, exciting possibilities are brewing for all the folks in Singtel in the brand new year.

I canโ€™t wait to see their movement taking off in a big, big way! ๐Ÿ›ซ
