What It Means To Be Feminine (and why it makes you a badass!!!)

Uncategorized Jun 17, 2019

In previous blog posts (part 1, part 2) we portrayed femininity and "feminism" in a negative light; some of you may have felt triggered, angered, or shamed by us but we're here to tell you that we mean no harm. We do not hate feminine energies; on the contrary, we love them! Society needs both feminine and masculine energies to function but only when they're mature energies. 

So what does it mean to be feminine?

Is it about wearing frilly pink dresses or skin-tight bodycon dresses?

Is it about being a mother of three? 

Is it about being able to make a decent sandwich?

Yes, that is precisely what mature feminine energies would do. Let it go.

This is because one of the most essential things the feminine energy does is to create and hold the space to nurture the creation. Feminine people are willing, and even desire, to give themselves to become whatever they need, to nurture those around them.

This is the part that most people misunderstand. We...

3 Tips if you have to start from $0

Uncategorized Jun 17, 2019

Today's topic is what would I do if I had to start from scratch? How would I try to make money if I had 0$ in my account? How would I try to go ahead on life? It’s funny but when you start from zero, you have nothing to lose, zero assets, low burdens and that’s pretty spot to be in, right? When you start from blank state, there is so much you can try and maximize and it’s quite fun.

First thing I would do if I started from nothing is to is to do what my friend Fedor Holz recommended.  He actually recommended to try three to five different things because when you start from blank state you will have so many options to try, but how do you know what you are good at or what you can be good at in future? Like what will you have the highest ceiling in? You might have some kind of idea about what you're fascinated and motivated by but you have to try to test it out. Only after few months you become beginner to intermediate very quickly and then you jump over to...

This Is Not Feminism (Part 2)

Uncategorized Jun 11, 2019

As promised in last week's blog, this week, we'll be discussing internalised misogyny. 

Internalised misogyny refers to the phenomenon where women devalue other women or feminine traits and instead overvalue men and masculine qualities. 

So why does this happen? 

According to the vulnerability model, vulnerable groups such as females and ethnic minorities perceive themselves as physically and financially helpless against dominant groups. They normalise their helplessness and status in society, which negatively affects their mental health by increasing behavioural inhibition and lowering self-esteem. 

The cycle of internalised misogyny:

Step 1: Exposure to Misogyny (e.g. Men believing that women who work are bad mothers)

Step 2: Mental schemas ( e.g. Housewives are better than women who work)

Step 3: Automatic Thoughts (e.g. Housewives are good, women who work are power hungry and greedy)

Step 4: Self-Schema ( e.g. I am a woman who works; therefore I am...

Forcing Functions- 3 Tips

Uncategorized Jun 10, 2019

I don't know if you have had the same experience as me before, but I’ve had bad periods in my life. Not exercising much, eating unhealthily and watching my tummy getting little too big.

I thought of my diet when I realised I am getting out of shape and had a big tummy and wanted to get in shape.

So, I started my diet plan and exercise plan the next day and set up my gym routine of 5 days a week and wrote it down on my planner and notes.

My 5-day plan looked good with different exercise for every day. I felt super motivated, and for the next two weeks, I started following it.

Two weeks later, my morale wasn’t high anymore and wasn’t the same as I wanted, and I soon broke my diet after I ate some ice cream from the fridge when I was stressed out.

So, I want to cover the reasons why you need to have forcing functions in your life. When you are motivated, use that motivation as energy to create forcing functions in your life.

Here are three tips on forcing...

This Is Not Feminism (Part 1)

Uncategorized Jun 04, 2019

Toxic Femininity: "It is a way for women to exercise violence in sneakier ways that the more overt violent tactics that are used by men, via passive aggression, person to person manipulation and systemic manipulation of victim complexes and protected identities, and funnelling of persons to violence by its counterpart- toxic masculinity" Source


I am going to split Toxic Feminity into two categories: The Immature Feminine and Internalised Misogyny. The former refers to the weaponising feminine traits, while the latter refers to the punishment for feminine traits (by females). While the expression of these characteristics can and often do overlap, they are different in terms of the desired outcome. 

This blog post will focus on The Immature Feminine; Internalised Misogyny will be discussed next week's blog post. 

An "immature feminine" person (yes this applies to males as well), has the following characteristics: Bitchy, Gossipy, Jealous of other women, Needs...

3 Tips For Building Positive Habits

discipline tips Jun 03, 2019

Have you ever tried to add a new positive habit into your life and then failed to succeed with it?

So, you started a positive habit just like reading books before sleep for a few days, and then after a while, you failed it. You may have begun at some night, but maybe after a couple of days, you got tired and didn’t manage to add that habit in.

It is quite common to start such things and fail to continue it in the long term.

I want to give you three tips on how to incorporate positive habits in your life more easily.

First is to set up more triggers in your life. If you read the book The Power of Habit, it talks about habits being formed by having a trigger, an action, and a reward. The trigger is something that reminds you to take that action and every time you do it; there is a reward. You need to have enough triggers to add in positive habits in your life.

For example, if you wanted to read a book at night, make sure you always leave your book in bed, and whenever you go to...

How to be more disciplined to achieve your goals: real-life entrepreneurial tips

Uncategorized May 28, 2019

People seem to think I am disciplined, but I never considered myself the same.

I was not so punctual during my student life and always leaving my exams to the last minute while I was in NUS as I had to fly from Macau to take them.

Even in my Secondary School, JC, I was the one who didn’t go to class or who didn’t study for exams until the very last-minute study.

However, I was becoming good at Poker and had started making good amount of money. People considered me as very disciplined for having so much time for studying Poker, working out, playing Poker and reading books. They started asking questions on how I found disciple to do all these personal development things.

I want to share three reasons why you have no discipline or why people don’t think you have discipline.

 

The first reason is Reliance on Willpower. People think of difficult things when they think of discipline.

For Example, going on a diet makes it very difficult not to eat any extra food...
