You know, I had come to ANLP at the peak of a confidence crises, being bombarded by a constant flow of cynicism, criticism and mounting self-doubt. During the past few days at ANLP, I can literally relate to an unpolished, rough wooden plank that is secured to a carpenter’s worktable, ready to be polished. The smoothing and shaping process has not been so comfortable. Session after session has brought enlightenment and unveiled things I did not know about myself, but boy oh boy, it has been so worth it! I have increasingly become aware of my competencies, the things I need to work on in my life, more importantly accepting positive feedback and working on it.

Now, I feel like a different person ready for the vast possibilities out there. I am ready to lead from where I stand. Now, I feel like a liberated bird, a diamond being polished daily, and I look forward to what the coming days and years brings. I am learning that making changes one step at a time can lead to unimaginable possibilities. I look forward to enjoying this journey of life and leadership, while abiding by the 6th Rule which says “don’t take yourself so seriously” :-)

Boy oh boy. I love this expression. Eunice sweetheart, that piece sounded like me when I first landed at ANLP. Knowing "thyself" is the best thing that can happen to all of us. Wishing you and all the ANLP a great week.
