The Slim Person You Seek Is Inside You

Aurorasa Sima is an Emotional Intelligence Trainer, business and executive coach who conducts sales training sessions, workshops, webinars and other events. In a recent blog, Do You Want to Search or Find (see link to her blog below), she mentioned how oftentimes after a training session someone will come up to her and say, “I knew all of that” and her response always is, “So, are you using that knowledge?”

That resonated with me as relates to my interactions with weight loss clients.

Often, either during a brief initial ‘info call’ conversation with someone or during an in-person consultation, when I am talking about a range of issues as relates to obesity and health (and, in particular, their own medical issues, if any), a person will say, “Yeah, I know all that.” My response always is, “So, how is knowing it all working out for you?” Obviously, it isn’t.

Aurorasa writes, “Most people perceive only things that are new to them as interesting. The danger is that they never dig deep into a topic.”

In my world, that also rings very true because too many overweight and obese people:

  1. Don’t stick with any fad diet too long because, well… you know… they can’t (it doesn’t work, they get bored, their friends stopped doing it, they don’t feel well, etc), and they move on to something new-the next quick-fix, the next scam, the next easy-out, the next what-can-I-do-without-any-effort-always searching and hoping to find the new ‘magic’ pill or potion that’ll work this time; and
  2. They almost never want to dig in and deal with the topic of why they became overweight/obese in the first place and why they choose to keep on moving from one easy quick-fix to the next, knowing full well the only thing they’re going to lose is time and money… and more time and more money.

If you’re constantly searching for something that you know doesn’t exist (a way to lose weight that is cheap, fast, healthy and lasts a lifetime), what that really means is you just don’t want to dig in and deal with the real topic: You. What are you searching for?

If you already have the knowledge required to achieve something you want or need, but choose not to apply it productively and, instead, keep on looking for something else, that really means you don’t want to achieve the objective or fix the problem because:

  1. You’re hiding from something (there’s comfort in that cocoon of fat);
  2. You are afraid to fail… again; or
  3. You don’t want to give it the time, concentration and commitment it requires.

It is much easier, as Aurorosa writes in her blog, to behave like a butterfly who flutters from one flower to the next, resting here and there for a while, never committing for too long, searching for the perfect place to land, no flower or leaf is good enough. This is like a man or a woman who is always searching for that perfect mate, or …

Welcome to Ho Chi Minh City!

Ho Chi Minh City was named after Ho Chi Minh, a Vietnamese statesman, who served as prime minister and president of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam). Ho Chi Minh led the North Vietnamese in the Vietnam American War until it ended in 1975. Ho Chi Minh passed away on the 2nd September 1969. Vietnamese unification followed and the former capital of South Vietnam, Saigon, was renamed Ho Chi Minh City in his honor.

Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam. The city center is situated on the banks of the Saigon River, 37 miles (60 kilometers) from the South China Sea and 1,094 miles (1,760 kilometers) south of Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam.

Over the past decade, Vietnam has been improving its legal infrastructure, banking systems and overall economic and social environment. On January 11, 2007, the country became the 150th member of the World Trade Organization. Today, the local business community is as enthusiastic about the country’s growth and future potential as foreign investors are. In fact, foreign direct investment in Vietnam is expected to reach US $15 billion in 2008, which is more than double from the same period in 2007.

Ho Chi Minh City is the financial hub of Vietnam with over 300,000 businesses in industries such as technology, electronics and construction. It is a fast-paced city that is growing rapidly both in terms of its industry and its population. The city’s vibrant culture and historical ambiance–combined with an optimistic workforce (many of which have no direct memories of the war with America that ended in 1975) –have catapulted the city into one of the fastest growing economies in Asia.

The metropolitan area, which consists of the city center and surrounding towns, is home to more than 9 million people, making it the largest metropolitan area in Vietnam and Indochina. Walking through the streets of Ho Chi Minh, one gets a sense of the modern mixed with traditional Asian ambiance.

The local language is Vietnamese but English is spoken almost everywhere. All foreign restaurants have English-speaking staff and most taxi drivers speak a little English. The street and store signs are in Vietnamese. Learning at least a little Vietnamese will make life easier and efforts to do so will be appreciated by the locals.

All foreign visitors are required to get a Visa. A foreigner who comes to live and work in Vietnam usually obtains a visa through his or her sponsoring organization. For a three- or six-month work visa, a passport and an invitation or assignment letter will need to be produced. The passport with a relevant visa is the most important document for a foreigner in Vietnam. It is recommended that all visitors register with their local Consulate or Embassy upon arrival in Ho Chi Minh City.

The local currency is Vietnam dong (VND). The dong comes in notes and coins, which range from 200 to 500,000 VND. It is advisable to take US dollars into Vietnam and exchange it …
