Thanks a lot for your attention.

1. Contrary to this topic, what kinds of characteristics do you think superbosses should have?

2. Does your major in school match up with your current job? Have you ever imagined what the working environment should be like before getting into your work field?

3. Have you ever thought about building your own business (or sideline) or changing to another field? If yes, what kinds of businesses or fields are you interested in? What kind of preparation are you working on for it?

Dear Taichung Happiers,

Job? Just believe in yourself!

How many moments have you fixed your eyes on the path when a noise caused you to lean further out of the door? Why did Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) sigh deeply at this thought “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all”? If this question troubles you, do you feel the urge to run your palm slowly and steadily over the window of life purposes? Do you work hard to make a living and simultaneously wonder how to make a life? What job would you take to have indisputable impacts on more people? Our host Vicki has been pondering over how to meet the requirements for actualizing our aspirations. Actually, either you are a boss or an employee, you are a leader—the leader of your dreams. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to join us in sharing how you find a real feather in your cap.

Lead your dreams with faithfulness and focus. Does your childhood dream inform your unique talents or your unique talents inspire your childhood dream?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCiKb9jWAVQ Never can we talk about jobs without thinking of Jobs. We’ve seen profound passion as bottomless as the sea on the faces of Steve Jobs fans, partly because of the mentoring he provided to encourage us to work on our true identity and strong uniqueness. "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." Nevertheless, before we define the destined direction https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sY-qwEYjs0&app=desktop , there is mist everywhere along the journey. To get out of the mist, are you as constant as the northern star? "The elevator to success is out of order. You'll have to use the stairs... one step at a time." To translate perseverance into everyday English is to focus on what matters most to us and fulfill the mission with greater dedication and devotion. https://hbr.org/2011/02/nine-things-successful-people

Lead your dreams with lifelong learning—meanwhile, appreciate beautiful oops. Just where the sunlight of lifelong learning goes into the shadow on the flood of continuous change can be seen our polished performance. People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing. That's why we recommend it daily. All right. Although researchers haven’t decided the most appropriate names for the non-academic skills for success, we cannot overemphasize the importance of the "4Cs” of critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity. Don’t worry—it’s not only for K-12—it is worthy of our lifelong learning goals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXT2STtm_54 The "4Cs” are skills, not talents. Everyone has the 4C muscles in their body. The secret coach to help us build the muscles is the appreciation of beautiful oops. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgYhukCCFR8 A Growth Mindset encourages fighting chances, exploring new experiences, and exceeding personal limits; a Growth Mindset meets and makes good use of mistakes; failure at a young age is indeed an intangible yet invaluable asset. http://www.businessinsider.com/sara-blakely-spanx-ceo-offers-advice-redefine-failure-retail-2016-7

Lead your dreams with the Culture of Kindness and Confidence--personal culture and organizational culture. Me (at work): "I think I'm having a heart attack." My boss: "Do that on your own time!" Ingredients for cooking the Culture of Kindness and Confidence include team spirit, gratitude, vision, integrity, trust, respect, and optimism. However, hard times, like strong wind, sway the trees of our beliefs. When we can never decide whether analyzing more or analyzing less, whether organizing more or organizing less can truly lift us beyond our limits, kindness and confidence conquer all, in the long run. Should move our gaze to more values we can add to this world; should move our gaze to more ways we can do what we love and what we are good at. Serve. Serve more. And, lift others up. When we serve above and beyond, we find the meanings of our lives. https://www.inc.com/marcel-schwantes/10-convincing-reasons-to-consider-servant-leadership-according-to-research.html Moreover, confidence is the key to achieve professional best; confidence is not being always right, but being not fearful to be wrong. What picture seizes your heart while you feel any anxiety or self-doubt coming in? Honestly, we don’t have all the answers to every life lesson, yet, these research reports are assuring us an extraordinary life. http://time.com/81811/how-to-be-more-confident-5-research-backed-methods/ An extraordinary life. Apparently, Michelangelo had excellent eyesight for an extraordinary life. “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” Life does work that way, doesn't it? See? The film Justice League depicts the influence of selflessness and kindness and deciphers the significance of confidence to attend more and achieve higher. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zo-gZcNO9WI

“Dare To Be” by Steve Maraboli

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
When times are tough, dare to be tougher.
When love hurts you, dare to love again.
When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can –
At all times, Dare to be!

What is success but another name of life satisfaction? How to pursue value, instead of success? Author Aaron Lauritsen offers a further reminder. “Life's trials will test you, and shape you, but don’t let them change who you are.” Again, the strategy to live our lives on purpose is not merely a “quote, unquote” thing. None circumstances can match our happiest mood and make us perform most efficiently, but when we are surrounded by family and great friends who not only accept but also acknowledge who we are. Luckily, it’s always here Happiers farm each other’s perception produce with our true stories of discovering and demonstrating passion, patience, and perseverance in life. Again, kindness is contagious; confidence is contagious; happiness is contagious. Feeling your mind racing? Time to fly together, again. Buckle up! Join us. Thanks!!!


With Gratitude,
