A homeless person gave me money

#Personal#Experience : Did I ever share the story about a homeless woman with a child who once gave me RM20? Yes. It did happen.

Some years ago, I made a connection with a lady with a child who was homeless while my family and I were doing our street feeding rounds. She kept in touch with me and called me one day to say that she had gotten enough money to stay in a budget hotel for a few nights. One of the days where I was in the area, she invited me to meet her at the hotel and told me of some income opportunities she has and wanted me to give her some support. I didn’t know what “support” she meant and after a long update conversation, she asked me for some money so that she can get some clothes to re-sell and the amount she was asking for was RM100. I didn’t have any cash with me at that time and it was getting dark but I told her that I will go to the ATM to get some cash and will give her the money before I head home. She then asked me where I parked my car (and it was a pretty dark area at night) and she said in Malay, “Never mind. It’s getting dark. We can meet another time and you can pass me the money.” And then she asked me if I had money to pay for the car park. I said No. That is why I am OK to walk to the nearest ATM and get some money.

She then told me to not go to the ATM and instead looked at all the money she had with her (about RM80 plus some change) and gave me RM20. I didn’t want to accept the money because I believe she needed it more. She said, “If the money is really mine, it will come back to me” and insisted that I take the RM20 from her and not go to the ATM because she says it’s not safe when it’s dark.

True enough. I needed that RM20. The car park ticket cost me RM6. I called her the next day to say that I would like to give her some money to help her start her mini retail clothes business. She told me she received a call that day from a company that was hiring low-income single mothers as part of their CSR and someone had submitted her name as a recommendation. She was going to do telemarketing and sales and she will be getting lodging too for her and her young son. Apparently, she has been actively networking too to get back on her feet.

We stayed in touch (on and off) for about a year and the last connection I had with her was a call from her assistant at a company she was working at to invite me to a lunch event. I turned it down as I was traveling a lot at the time. But the story of this lady was powerful to me. No. Not every one of the homeless is an ex-convict or a drug addict. Her story was a case of the wrong relationship that she got involved with which led her to be homeless and penniless. I remembered what she said. “If the money is mine, it will come back to me.” The money came back to her many times back. Even though we lost touch…I still cherish the learning I received from that one encounter. True Story. LOVE & RESPECT. #murshidahsaid#murshidahsaidsharing#murshidahsaidcoaching#loveandrespect#spreadloveandrespect#socialimpact#consciousbusinessowner #loveandrespectcoach

OK…so I am known as a woman of colour…

#Personal#Sharing : Interesting that I was invited to a community of changemaker women as a “woman of colour” ( because the community is for women of colour).

Coming from this part of the world, I have never identified with the term “colour” as race is defined differently here. Of course, I am grateful to be invited into a community where coming from Asia I am the minority in the group too…and I understand the term but I never thought of myself described as a “coloured”.

So as how many different countries define various minority groups, or define people based on race (here it is Malay, Chinese, Indian, Eurasian/Others)…I wonder when we can have a world where we do not have to define people by their “colour” or “race” because we are all so diverse, so blended and so colourful already. Can we all unite under Humanity instead? And live with LOVE & RESPECT for one another no matter their “colour” ? #murshidahsaid#murshidahsaidsharing#murshidahsaidcoaching#loveandrespectcoach#loveandrespect#spreadloveandrespect#leavealegacyconsciousbusinesscommunity#leavealegacy#feminineleadershipcommunity#feminineleaders#feminineleadership

Is Your Partnership Ideal?

Personal #Experience #Sharing :

I just coached one of my clients on having ideal partnerships. Just as we have ideal clients in our business, you must also work on ideal partnerships (in both your business and personal lives).
❤️
Partnerships should not be tipped in the scale of the balance of power. Is one of them expecting something more than agreed? Are there new requests that were not agreed on in the past? Is there distrust? Does the energy alignment feel off in certain areas and yet not discussed? Does one of the partners often tell the other what to do or often give unsolicited advice? Does one partner often feel unacknowledged? Does one of the partners speak negatively about the other to others?
❤️
So grateful that I received feedback from my clients that they managed to finetune their partnership agreements as just some possible red flags did show up.
❤️
I have made many mistakes with narcissistic partners and collaborators in the past… so it helps so much when I hire a coach and a team of consultants who can give input from a neutral perspective on directions that are recommended.
❤️
So in any partnership, TRUST is key. Having a common purpose is KEY. Partnerships must be in JOY & PURPOSE…otherwise, it’s a waste of time and energy.
❤️
So have a wonderful week ahead, lovelies. May you all have JOYFUL partnerships filled with LOVE & RESPECT. #murshidahsaid #murshidahsaidsharing #loveandrespect #spreadloveandrespect #consciousbusinessowners #feminineleaders #socialimpactinvestors #sustainablelifestyle #sustainableliving #murshidahsaidcoaching #loveandrespectcoach #internationalcoach #loveandrespecttransforms #fromsmallthingsbigthingsgrow #sustainablelifestyle #tip #mindset #queenmindset #FeminineLeadershipTip #feminineleadershipcommunity #saturday #saturdayvibes #partnerships #businesstip

Someone did something bad to me !

#Personal #Empowerment #Tip :
If someone has done something bad unto you, look back at yourself to check if you have also done that to others. Then make the decision to stop EVER from doing it again. For example, if you felt hurt when someone gossips about you…be sure to NEVER do that to others. If you have felt hurt when someone gave you a hard time at work, make sure you do not do the same to others and stop that behavior when you see someone else doing the same to others. If you felt oppressed or manipulated by someone narcissistic, do not do the same to others you deem “weaker”.
Most of the time, we keep quiet and allow negative situations to just happen and prolonged. Worse if we are even a part of that or see and know abuse and oppression in front of us and just allow that to happen.
In order for us to create a better life for ourselves and others, it’s important to really live with LOVE & RESPECT. So think about the time you have been hurt, cheated, talked down to, or oppressed. Because you know how it feels… DO NOT ever do the same to others and STOP it when you witness it done unto others too. It’s time we discontinue any wrongdoings from generations past and create a more positive and loving world and culture. DO IT. LOVE & RESPECT !

ABUNDANCE MINDSET ELIMINATES JEALOUSY

#Personal #Experience #Sharing :
I have had a trainer once walk into my training room (after my participants have left) and openly said to me that I am taking the jobs of other “local” trainers….because well… I am not “local”.
🎯
And yes, he is a “Leadership Trainer” to corporations. In a way, he was telling me to “Go Home”. (I will not share the exact words he used or about being authentic to your message…I will reserve that for another post).
I will instead share about mindsets on ABUNDANCE.
🎯
I have met foreigners (and some refugees too) who started with nothing and made a pretty decent life in the country they have settled…and I have met some foreigners who even after 5 years still complaining about how the local country does not help them and locals not accepting them.
🎯
I have seen and met people who are always suspicious of “foreigners” and saying that they are taking away opportunities from them. And yes…they are not happy or successful either. Oh dear. The way to a person’s success is his/her mindsets, beliefs and Faith and connection with our ALL ABUNDANT ALMIGHTY CREATOR. It is time we start to OPEN OUR MINDS, EYES AND HEARTS to an ABUNDANT mentality instead of scarcity. With a scarcity mindset, you will never be truly RICH, HAPPY, JOYFUL and CREATIVE. AND THAT scarcity mindset is what keeps a person stuck for years. AND create the chaos, wars and fights.
🎯
This is not a #justsaying post. It is a post that encourages ACTION. ESPECIALLY NOW, we need a CHANGE in mindsets and cultures in communities.
🎯
And trainers…if you are teaching LEADERSHIP and still focused on fear-based mentalities and scarcity in your own lives…it’s time to change to the more FEMININE way of LEADING. Where we believe in Abundance, Collaborations, Inclusivity, and Celebrations. And lots of FUN, LOVE & RESPECT ! #murshidahsaid #murshidahsaidsharing #murshidahsaidcoaching #loveandrespect #spreadloveandrespect #loveandrespectcoach #thethingsigothroughbuildingmybusiness #loveandrespecttransforms #feminineleadershipcommunity #feminineleaders #leadership #feminineleadership

Be Kind to Your Family First


#Personal
 Reflection : I have heard of various refugee stories especially by women who face challenges of not only having to leave their homes because the countries they live in are not secure…but also because there are conflicts within their own families too. Where the people who are supposed to protect them in their own homes are also those who are hurting them.

Also, these stories are not limited to refugees only. I believe a lot of how people lead and treat others begins from how they are raised in their own homes. So please be sure to provide a safe environment first within your own families.

Where people feel safe to speak, discuss, ask and give support instead of living in an environment of condemning, attacking and distrust. Where the homes are hurtful within, people will create hurt without. Hurt people will hurt others. So start with your families first. Create a loving, safe and supportive relationship in your marriage so that you can create that loving supportive environment for your children, parents, siblings, extended families, neighbours and then spillover that LOVE & RESPECT onto others at work, in business, in your communities, in your countries and with others across the world. Simple. Start with yourself and your family. #murshidahsaid #murshidahsaidsharing #murshidahsaidcoaching #loveandrespecttransforms #loveandrespectcoach #loveandrespect #spreadloveandrespect #consciousbusinesscoach #consciousbusiness

GIVE TO YOURSELF TOO


#Giving
 Tip :
As someone who loves to GIVE and HELP others, you must also GIVE to yourself. The Law of Giving says that the more you Give, you the more you receive. However, many forget to RECEIVE too. For example your health, your relationships, your own finances. Give to yourself means self-care as you cannot pour out of an empty jar. Let’s not be one of those people who resent Giving to others because you feel overwhelmed or used. GIVING is best when it’s joyful and from a place of ABUNDANCE. So take care of yourself, lovelies. Because your big heart needs some LOVE & RESPECT too. #murshidahsaid #murshidahsaidcoaching #murshidahsaidsharing #leavealegacyconsciousbusinesscommunity #loveandrespectcoach #loveandrespect #spreadloveandrespect #feminineleadershipcommunity #loveandrespecttransforms
