Dear Taichung Happiers,

Everyone is a superhero in disguise—find the force within you.

What makes our super suit? Mom knows best, and, so did Steve Jobs. "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it." Sure enough, no good stories come without obstacles and challenges. Nowadays, our culture rewards quicker catch-up growth and strong intrinsic power. There is a glow of expectation and feeling written on our faces, which is thoroughly studied before we absolutely appreciate wherever our super suit is. We don’t have all the answers before demonstrating a new dance; we have, remember, the limitless night sky blinking with messages. Nevertheless, it must be said—the messages do arouse our desires to make a difference, to exert an enormous influence, to discover more truth, and to translate our passion into resources and strategies. So, what is wellbeing at work but another name of defining a future intended context, highlighting the priorities, and contributing our best potential? What kinds of company will make you feel your future is there? How can the awareness of who we are take us to fly without wings to a whole new world? How to learn from the best role model and cultivate flexibility? What’s the difference between interest and commitment? Welcome to join our host Queena in sharing more insights and sharpening our skills of knocking the door.

Do you love your job like the ocean loves water? Feeling the rising tide of the passion? Oops, pretty pals, you have to turn another tide.
http://www.npr.org/2015/04/20/400929847/why-handsome-men-may-be-at-a-disadvantage-when-it-comes-to-hiring When, at last, the honesty and dignity are found, and the wellbeing at work pours in, we have the very reason for the pride. We have the honesty and dignity when we focus on what we are truly passionate for; we have the honesty and dignity when we focus on the atmosphere and the experience; we have the honesty and dignity when we are searching for the harmony within ourselves. Leadership Expert Robin Sharma specifically stated “Once you surrender to your vision, success begins to chase you.” All right. Methods, anyone? https://hbr.org/2017/08/how-senior-executives-stay-passionate-about-their-work In what environment and atmosphere can the employer and employees flourish together? What’s the biggest challenge of working in a team? Which role have you played in the team? Have you and others view your performance from an objective angle? Who should be more caring, employers or employees? Why? Can a boss showing sincere interest in who the employees are make a big difference? How? https://www.mckinsey.com/featured-insights/leadership/decoding-leadership-what-really-matters

Pain teaches us who we are. Pain is the true picture of prosperity, in every way. “People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing. That's why we recommend it daily.” Somewhat, our crucial lack of motivation is as bad as being drunk. You ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight? Growth is in the pain playing hide-and-seek, light-and-shadow games with us. Do you allow yourself to feel the pain? How to take this pain and make it meaningful to you? Well, we cannot overemphasize the importance of identity. Here comes NBA player Jeremy Lin’s total authenticity. https://www.facebook.com/jeremylin7/posts/2130667583834505 Meanwhile, the concrete stairs to success are made of the test-and-learn cycle and a clear vision. Calmly climb the stairs with inspection, imagination, and intuition. Aristotle (384–322 B.C.), one of the greatest philosophers of all time, had indicated the interest of inspection. “Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” Ladies and gentlemen, meet this magic mirror, music, to see into our inner-self. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0E0U-9XOt8 On top of everything, whatever your biggest dream is, find your own path, instead of following any standard formulas--keep learning; keep fresh; keep re-inventing yourself. My favorite teacher gifted me a simple yet difficult advice, and it significantly influences my thoughts and practices. ”Don’t repeat yourself.” To re-invent ourselves, we are pierced with happy self-disruption—and we possess the pain. Only then can we realize how beautiful all of this is—how precisely it assures us the direction—the right direction to return to who we are and what we were meant to be. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmC1m1H-leg

From “SWEET DARKNESS” (by David Whyte)

The dark will make a home for you tonight.
The night
will give you a horizon
further than you can see.
You must learn one thing.
The world was made to be free in.
Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.
Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn
anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive
is too small for you.

Is your heart in the right place? “Did you hear about the guy whose whole left side was cut off? He’s all right now.” The heart, like a sunny child, dear and direct, is generously open to the glamour of the world. How do you interpret this world and decide what right thing to be engaged in? Do you feel empowered while reacting to the world? What does spider man mean by "With great power comes great responsibility"? Well, the right place/thing is where/how you can make others’ dreams sweeter than before.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFydGK01FTQ Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple Inc., quotes Martin Luther King on "the time is always right to do the right" and encourages fearlessness and more actions to build a better world for the next generation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jr4LC1q1N_g It's time for superheroes--everyone is a superhero in disguise--find the force within you and define success with your own terms. From time to time, intoxicated by the evidence of fulfillment, we forget about curiosity and integrity to set higher standards and structural strategies. If, if mission, compassion, and creation are not the criteria for our decisions, personally and professionally, what is? Mission and compassion help us create opportunities, create values, and create environments for ourselves and for our organizations to stretch further and further. Dissolve what we have learned in a flood of experiments and tests, and then, extract the cycle of positive change. In short, ask the person in the mirror: what needs to happen to be a candle for the night? Now, take a deep breath, please. Check out this story. This is a true story inextricably weaves mission, compassion, and creation together. This is a film hijacking everyone’s heart. This is, Home Run Taiwan! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQoX1rmKnEA

Once upon a time, the super heroes……. What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? Close your eyes and feel the light. The light pours long through the trees. African-American author, philosopher, and educator Howard Thurman (November 18, 1899 – April 10, 1981) guided our eyes in a different direction. “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Come alive. Keep our minds from swimming with doubts. Keep our eyes from clouding with confusion and frustration. The accurate awakening in everyone pushing us to make a profound impact is the deepest commitment to the beauty of life. The beauty of life is not only how happy we are, but also how happy others can be--because of us. Therefore, even if you are dancing with devils or running with the wolves, please bear in mind that you are not, and won’t be, alone! Join us. Thanks!!!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ks14DJcBf4Q


With Gratitude,
