For many years, many of you have been asking me how can you unleash your Brilliance. However, first of all, what is Brilliance?

1. Brilliance is Letting Go

To me, Brilliance is letting go of who you think you are supposed to be. You don’t have to try and fit in. You don’t have to please people all the time, if not you will feel unworthy or undeserving. Most of all, you don’t have to be perfect.

Some of you may be thinking,

“What if I think I am enough but others don’t?”

“What if I let my imperfections, my weakness, my true self known, but people may not like the real me? and this is all I have.”


“What if they only like the projected me? You know the one that is strong, that can do no wrong, care for everything and for everyone.”


See, most people think wrongly!

Often people attempt to live their lives backwards, they try to have more things or more money in order to do more of what they want so that they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are then do what you need to do in order to have what you want. – Margaret Young

Brilliance then, to Be, to Do, then to Have. Let me elaborate further.

2. Brilliance is… Living Wholeheartedly

Brilliance is about Living Wholeheartedly by embracing who you are! It’s about engaging our lives from a place of worthiness.


Living wholeheartedly is not a one-time choice. It is a process. 

You must be ready to embrace your mistakes, failures and weaknesses and all the success in life.

Brilliance is the journey of a lifetime. Brilliance requires dedication to living, to loving and leaving a legacy one day behind.

Learning step by step to BE YOU

If you have not taken the 1st step in your Brilliance journey… then you are probably still waiting for the One Big Step that may never come” – Mike Ang

Everything you need to be Brilliant is already inside YOU.

Your goal is to discover “nature’s fingerprints” on your life.

To experience the release of your Brilliance, it is the call of adventure in many ways, both simple yet profound, over the years.

It is a call of service because,

It is in your giving that you discover your Gift.


Once you do that, it is giving our lives to something larger than ourselves. It is a call to achieve our original design and a call to be the real Authentic You.

You can only be who you are DESIGNED to be

Minimum Productivity.

Now, this is Brilliant!
