Words of wisdom: Help more by helping less

The relationship between letting go and helping less

When you are feeling helpless, help less by letting go.  By letting go, you help yourself more. – Yip Pei Shan

Sometimes the most resourceful persons feel helpless, simply because they overuse their resources.

With the knowledge and power to act, they see that they will always have a solution, and never be helpless.  However, when any strength gets overdone, it results in more issues than solutions.

Ironically, by letting go, you help yourself less, and you get more help.  Are you helping less?

Smiles and hearts: Mr. initiative

A smile is a heart-to-heart communication: it emanates from your heart, radiates on your face, and lights up the hearts of others – Yip Pei Shan

After a long day, it was a pleasure to stop and dine at cosy little Tagimaya Yakiniku fronting the skies and waters at Vivocity.  Ever since my exploration into spirituality, I have enjoyed being as close to nature as possible in the city of Singapore.

We were greeted enthusiastically by Alvin, Mr. initiative, who was in charge of the diners outdoors.  Armed with huge grins and twinkly smiley eyes, he served us promptly and attentively.

After serving our drinks and food, he gave us lovely surprises, serving us a complimentary Umeshu, and Honjozo.

I was also pleased to find out that Alvin had an understanding manager giving him opportunities to learn and shine, and a wise boss leading them all!  The best people are happiest with a happy boss!

Shan with Alvin, Mr initiative @ Tajimaya, Vivocity!

I will definitely look forward to Alvin’s Shanshine smile when I pass by!  I salute you, Alvin, Mr. initiative!
