“A life transformed, transforms others.” Wendy Kwek

At the core of our existence is a calling for our own soul evolution, for us to evolve into a better version of ourselves.

It is a pull towards breaking through of our current struggles and living in the flow as we align ourselves to a bigger purpose.

Most people are held back from living their potential as they either ‘live in the past’ filled that is filled with lack, guilt and resentments or ‘living in a projected future” filled anxiety and helplessness.

As we journey each day, just by consciously injecting positivity, gratitude and learning from inspiring materials. It can help us start to transform our thoughts, emotions and action into creating a better future.

Let’s get to the basics .

Tony Robbins always emphasize that “the quality of questions will determine the quality of your life.”

Take time to breathe slowly, calmly and ask empowering questions like

“What are some of the simple ways that I can of service to others.”

“What are some of the knowledge, skills or experience that I have that can use help others in their journey of growth either physically, mentally, emotionally, financially or spiritually.”

“Who can I learn from? What do I enjoy learning?”

“Which speaker, books or inspiring programs can help me grow?”

“What area of my life do I improve myself, improving just 1% a day, to be a better version of myself.”

Each time you think from possibilities, to grow personally, to be of service to others, you will access a world of unlimited potentiality. Reach out, connect, support and start taking action that will transform you and the people around you in a positive way.

If you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts or watching toxic content online/ TV or engaging in things that just do not support your personal growth, gently pull yourself away and take action that will uplift yourself and others.

Make this as a conscious choice until it becomes your subconscious way of living a healthier, more prosperous and happy life!

Have fun and enjoy the journey of transformation.

Remember “A life transformed, transforms others.” Wendy Kwek

Meditation Offers Unlimited Lifetime Access To Your Long Term & Short Term Memory Vault

Meditation Offers Unlimited Lifetime Access To Your Long Term & Short Term Memory Vault

“Meditation Can Improve Your Memory, Focus and Productivity.”

Whether you are a college student cramming for final exams, a career-ladder-climbing professional looking for that extra mental sharpness, or a senior wishing to preserve your “golden year” mental faculties, you can certainly improve your memory and brain power no matter your place in life.

What is the best way? You guessed it, meditation. Here are 3 ways meditation is the very best tool for honing every aspect of your long term and short term memory while ensuring it stays robust for years to come.

Cortisol Makes You Forget — Meditation Makes You Remember

how to improve memory power naturally

Have you ever wondered why, after a super-stressful day, your memory goes down the drain? You can blame your body’s main stress hormone, cortisol.

When your back is against the wall, cortisol floods your brain’s most critical memory component, the hippocampus — effectively downgrading your ability to quickly/ accurately store and recall information. Cortisol in your system over the long term has really nasty cumulative effects, all the more reason to neutralize the stress in your life.

Luckily, scientists have found a very effective solution. In 2013, researchers at UC Davis discovered a very strong link between mindfulness meditation and dramatic cortisol reductions, with incredible results seen after only a few short weeks. Another study by a Rutgers University doctor discovered that meditators could reduce cortisol levels by more than half!

By effectively reducing the #1 stress hormone cortisol, meditation can turn your brain into a vast reservoir of accurate memories, relevant facts, and usable language, making this awesome volume of information accessible to you at any time.

Meditation Fortifies Your Brain’s Memory Vault: Hippocampus

how to improve memory power of brain

Brain health experts now believe the creeping cognitive decline, brain fog, and memory lapses we experience as we age are really because of our lifestyle choices — not the “grandpa is getting old” cop out.

The great news is that you can have excellent memory 100% naturally.

The hippocampus, your brain’s most important region for storing and retrieving information, is especially “neuroplastic” — meaning that it can strengthen and grow new cells, no matter your age. But, it must have the right stimulation.

If you wanted to hit your tennis serve 110 MPH, you wouldn’t sit on the couch praying for it to happen. No magical rain-dance will make you shower your opponent with aces. You have to train the exact muscles involved — with regularity and repetition.

Likewise, if you want to boost your memory, both long term and short term, then you need to train your hippocampus. Art Kramer Ph.D. professor University of Illinois recently wrote “The bigger the hippocampus, the better you are able to form new memories.”

how to improve memory power of brain

Then, what is the secret to building up a big and strong hippocampus? Meditation.

Prominent Harvard neuroscientist, Dr. Sara Lazar and colleagues, have studied the brains of meditators for years. Among many other monumental discoveries, her research shows that meditators’ brains seem to always have well-formed, highly developed Hippocampi.

In line with this finding, University of California Santa Barbara researchers found GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) verbal scores were boosted from 460 to 520… by practicing meditation for only 2 weeks!

Even for learning and memory, meditation can reshape and forever innovate the areas of your brain to store and retrieve information no matter your age or history of bad memory. Give your brain the Pacific Ocean’s storage capacity, discover meditation.

Neurogenesis: Meditation Drafts More Soldiers For Your Brain’s Long Term & Short Term Memory Army

how to improve memory power of brain

As a high-functioning adult, the millions of neural pathways comprising your brain have by now established well-worn pathways, helping you efficiently store and recall relevant everyday information, solve familiar problems, and perform in your day-to-day activities.

The problem is, without fresh and new stimulation, your brain can’t improve, grow, and develop beyond its’ current boundaries.

You have to run that extra mile, climb that extra hill, or swim that extra lap if you want to be better than you were yesterday. The best exercise for your brain forces new and fresh neural pathways, breaking your day-to-day routine is the only way.

Then, what’s the best solution? The best tool for neurogenesis (growth of new neurons) is the one and only… meditation.

neurogenesis meditation memory power

Meditation spurs your brain to optimize itself by stimulating the formation of extra nerve cells, causing them to multiply and strengthen their interconnectivity, bulletproofing them from the otherwise normal age related wear and tear.

Meditation will pave an interstate highway network of new neural pathways, update existing connections, and make your brain incredibly adaptive and resilient — the best ingredients to thrive in our ever-changing world.

As your high school gym coach drilled into your head, “use it or lose it” is not only applicable to your physical musculature — your brain also need to be worked out with regularity.

Luckily, meditation is the heavyweight brain-building champion of the world.

Robin Sharma 20-20-20 Formula

Robin Sharma 20-20-20 Formula: Practice That Will Change Your Life

Robin Sharma is a Canadian writer and one of the world’s best experts on leadership, productivity and personal development.

He proposed a formula for personal effectiveness – a simple 20-20-20 technique that will help increase performance and improve quality of life. Sharma has been using this formula for many years and admits that it “radically changed his life.”

The essence of the 20-20-20 morning formula is to devote the first hour after waking up exclusively to yourself.

Robin Sharma calls it “the holy hour”. At this time, you do not watch the news, do not check your mail and social networks, but feed your inner life.

You divide this first hour after waking up into three stages – 20 minutes each.

Stage one – movement

The first 20 minutes after waking up, you devote to active movement. It can be any physical activity – running, yoga, swimming, jumping rope. You move to the point of sweating.

According to John Reidy, a Harvard University professor, if you sweat within 20 minutes of waking up, your brain’s neurotrophic factor, a protein that repairs damaged cells, is processed, Sharma says.

During this time, the body produces dopamine – special chemicals in the brain, as a result of which you feel a surge of strength and inspiration. Also, the hormone of happiness serotonin is produced and the level of cortisol, the stress hormone, decreases.

Stage two – diary

For the second 20 minutes, you think and write in a diary, make a gratitude list, you think and look inside yourself, write out the plan of your ideal day.

“I call this making a gratitude list or a preliminary script for the day, for which you can then say “thank you” to yourself. Your day is your life in miniature, and by living this day, you are building your life,” says Robin Sharma.

Stage three – learning

You devote the last 20 minutes of this hour to learning. 20 minutes before the active start of the day, you can listen to a podcast, take part of the course, read a book – do something that contributes to personal development.

“One of the best areas to invest in is learning. The more you know, the more you can do. You make a dramatic difference when you devote time to learning, not entertainment,” Sharma explains.

The greatest geniuses are no more talented than ordinary people. They just know more about planning and goal setting.

Note that it is also very important to find and maintain an optimal balance between work and leisure, career and family, and prioritize correctly.

Create extraordinary moments

Create extraordinary moments

I’m leaving to London right now with over 40 investors to visit the hotel properties we have invested! I’ll be away for a week to tour in Birmingham and London. This shall be a fruitful trip for our investors and for myself.  Shall update the photos when back.

Here is a little tip for those who want to lead an extraordinary life.  You can choose to create extraordinary moments By capturing ‘snapshots’ of happy moments in your mind.  (Rather similar to using a real camera.)

So when you ask me to “recall some magic moments”, I have really many to recount. It does take a conscious effort to practise capturing extraordinary moments intentionally, as we can get caught up with daily challenges, stress and even issues that are beyond out control. Instead of letting issues cloud and occupy your mind space, this strategy can work to create a more harmonious way to life.

In summary, to create a fulfilling life, we can consciously create HAPPY SNAPSHOTS and feel GRATEFUL for a mix of beautiful, fun, exciting and enlightening moments.

Capturing such moments in your hearts and recounting them will make your life feel SUPER AMAZING!  And you will attract more of what you capture in your mind and in your heart.

Have an awesome day![

I thought I no longer need to set goals!

I thought I no longer need to set goals!

Goal-so-big-And I thought I do not need to set goals anymore.

Goal setting is such a basic concept for anyone who wants to achieve success in life, right?  I have set many goals in my life before and they do work because I take massive and continuous action towards creating my ideal life.

In the past 15 years of running my business, speaking and training tens of thousands of people, I thought I already have all and more than I ever dreamt of.  I have taught many people about goals setting, visualisations, ways to take action and ways to celebrate their every little success.  Never did I think only now do I understand in its totality.

In the past, I wanted to run a business that can value add to people in the area of financial intelligence, business, investments, self development etc.

I wanted to become a multimillionaire.

I wanted to own 100 properties.

I wanted to get married  and start a family.

Now I have them all by working with my team.  But why was there something missing? It is not that I am ungrateful.

In fact, I do the gratitude exercise everyday. I believe that’s why I have so much love and blessings along the way.

The fact is that I felt I that I have almost everything and nothing is missing.

However, something in my heart is still missing the adrenalin and excitement which I used to have previously.  What is this about?

I was in comfort zone.

In the Anthony Robbins Total Success program, I have discovered that success include ‘Science of Achievement’ and ‘Art of Fulfilment’.

Acheivement may not be Fulfilment. Some famous people are so successful and yet they feel depressed.

I realised that recently I do not have bigger goals that I can get EXCITED and OBSESSED with everyday! I lack OBSESSION!

I remembered how obsessed I was in the past.  People perceived me as diligent, proactive and massive action taker.  In the past my goals were my obsession!

NOW I need GOALS that scare the hell out me and get my adrenalin pumping when I think of it.

So here it is.  My goals now is to be international best selling author of books and be able to touch lives in mega ways.  Some of my role models are Louise Hay, Oprah Winfrey, Anthony Robbins, John Stamoulos, Dr Brian Weiss, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Ekhart Tolle and  many, many,  more mentors,  gurus and friends.  The commonality is that they inspire lives that touches the core of the beings.

If you realised, most of these role models I mentioned are based in the West.  How about those from from Asia which made it internationally? Can I fill the shoe of being one of the most inspiring person  who can touch lives  from Asia region and reaching into international arena?  That’s a BLOODY SCARY thought!  All my ‘yada yada’ tells me it is impossible and many excuses came into my mind.

But Anthony Robbins says ‘IF YOU THINK YOU CAN’T, YOU MUST’, in his throaty voice.

And NOW I’m OBSESSED and SCARED! And it feels EXHILARATING.

So, let’s get off our butts and accomplish what we think we can’t.

Pls do write to me at info@wkevents.com.sg if you would like to share your personal thoughts with me and those of you who need some private advice about how to improve your life, just email me your questions and I’ll do my best to reply for FREE!

Thanks Tony Robbins for kicking butts. You are not just awesome but phenomenal at kicking butts. We love you!

Thanks Richard Tan, Veronica Tan and Michael Burnette from Success Resources, the organiser of such life transforming events!

A Tribute To Mr Lee Kuan Yew

A Tribute To Mr Lee Kuan Yew

I am deeply saddened with the passing on of one of the world’s greatest leader, our founding father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. He had dedicated his life fighting for Singapore, strategizing for Singapore and grooming Singapore to becoming a first world nation that is respected and modelled after by many.

It is, by no means, an easy feat developing a country from a third world to a first world nation status within such a short period of time. In the face of adversity and opposition, he stood for what he believed in and yet kept an open mind to all other possibilities. His vision, his leadership in roping in dedicated team of talents and ability to form international alliances for the purpose of building and protecting Singapore is truly remarkable.

Lee Kuan Yew

Much has been already been said about his greatness with the outpouring of tribute from all around the world. I just want to express my deepest gratitude to our founding father.

“THANK YOU so much, Mr Lee Kuan Yew for your dedication and commitment. I am proud to be a Singaporean. May your legacy continue to inspire us and move us towards into the future as a united and prosperous nation.”

With love and respect,
Wendy Kwek
