About me: Your Money and Your Mindset.com
My name is Dr Lorwai TAN PhD.
I finally arrived at being a success coach via a circuitous path. I specialize in coaching people who want to transition out of their day jobs to doing what makes their spirit come alive.
The 2 objectives I have for my clients are that they
i) Discover what they are passionate about doing for the rest of their lives and
ii) Make a lot of money doing it.
Almost daily I witness situations where people are not fulfilled in their jobs but are afraid to quit. They literally “live lives of quiet desperation”-Thoreau.
The one biggest objection (read fear) that most people have is that they doubt their own abilities to generate income without the “security” of a steady job. Golden handcuffs anyone?
My previous career as a medical and scientific researcher engaged my intellect. Scientific discovery and contributing to understanding the human body at a molecular level was fun and challenging. It made me use my mind creatively to gain insight into the mysteries of nature.
However it did not fuel my vision, mission and goals.
My mission is to teach you the practical and emotional intelligence skills you need to create lasting wealth.
My definition of lasting wealth:
It is financial independence, fulfilling and rewarding personal and professional relationships, great physical health, and a centeredness and calmness about your spirit and soul.
In essence you like who you are, and you certainly like what you do.
Why do I want to help you create lasting wealth?
The answer is because financial independence equates to financial freedom.
It gives you choices you never had, and it lets you do what you want, when you want, and with whom you want.
How about being in the financial position to support the people and charities that mean a lot to you.
The list is endless and this is because when you have freedom; there are no limits to what you can achieve or the extent to which you can positively impact the world.
It lets you live life on your terms and with dignity.
How’s that for some reasons to being wealthy?
This site, YourMoneyandYourMindset.com addresses the problems we create for ourselves or were created for us when we were younger and unable to distinguish between fact and hand me down erroneous beliefs.
Do any of the following statements sound familiar:
- Money doesn’t grow on trees
- You’ve got to work really hard and then you just break even
- Rich people are arrogant
- All wealthy people are crooks
- How many people did he rip off to make his millions
- I don’t want money, I am pure and pious
- What will people think of me if I have a lot of money, will they still like me, will they still be my friends?
That is just the tip of the ice berg of our internal programming that make up the mental roadblocks, fears, self sabotage and negativity that most people have about money.
A wise person said to me, “It doesn’t matter what wealth creation vehicle you choose, be it investing in property, shares or running a business. If your mindset around money is suspect or incongruent with your personal beliefs about making a lot of money, you will never achieve the level of success you deserve”.
The good news is that I will teach you the tools you can apply immediately to stop the negative self talk and programming you got as a child that keeps you broke (and desperate).
I have also interviewed a number of self made millionaires (men and women), who look suspiciously like ordinary people and asked how they became successful.
It wasn’t getting a college or university degree, it wasn’t genetics; it wasn’t being born on the right side of the tracks.
The common factor in all their answers was a massive change in their mindset about making a truckload of cash.
Secondly, they believed in themselves and the value of the goods and services they provided their clients.
Thirdly, they weren’t afraid to fail and they came back stronger, faster and keener.
If you think that getting an education is expensive, try ignorance-Benjamin Franklin
The best thing you can do right now is invest in yourself.
Get what goes on between your ears (ie your thoughts, self image, and money belief system) right and begin to experience and live the life you were meant to live.
Yours in health, wealth and happiness
