The One Decision That Saved My Life

The One Decision The Saved My Life

This Wednesday, I celebrated my 49th birthday. Wow, I’m almost half a century old (I know, I don’t look or feel like that)!! As a result, you can probably imagine, I’m in a celebratory and more contemplative mood this week. I’d like to share with you some birthday musings and some inspiration with you.

Hueina 1991 vs 2015

The picture on the left was taken a few days before my birthday in 1991, and the picture on the right was taken on my birthday this year. Two pictures. Twenty-four years apart. When I look at the pictures side by side, I look and feel like a totally different person. Back in 1991, I was in graduate school, stressed out from studying in a foreign country, while going through several painful relationship break-ups. I was painfully shy, insecure and desperately craving love and acceptance from Prince Charming. I didn’t know I was beautiful, lovable and worthy of love. I didn’t know that I need to give love and approval to MYSELF, instead of trying to get love and approval from others. Ironically, I kept attracting men who cheated on me and broke my heart into pieces. It was after 3 men in a row cheated on me that I completely fell apart, and that triggered a profound spiritual awakening for me. I made ONE DECISION that saved my life and turned my life around.

When I look at my younger self, my heart is filled with compassion for her, and gratitude for how far I have come, and WHO I have become.

In my segment in the award-winning transformational movie The Keeper of the Keys (starring Jack Canfield, John Gray and Marci Shimoff), I shared that spiritual awakening experience, the ONE DECISION that saved my life, and the advice I’d give to my younger self. I’d like to share my segment with you today, because I know you will gain some inspiration and insights from watching it.

If I were to ask you to look back at your younger self, what comes to mind? In what way are you different from your younger self? What are you most proud about who you are today? What advice would you give to your younger self? What self-loving commitments would you make to YOURSELF?

As for my birthday celebrations… My daughter was leaving for college last Saturday, my husband was leaving for a 6-day business trip on Sunday, and my son informed me that he will be having dinner with his buddies on my birthday. Since we moved from NJ to VA a few months ago, all my good friends, cousins & sisters are at least 3-6 hours away. That means, I’d be celebrating my birthday all by myself. :( Good thing I had the foresight to get myself a birthday cake last Friday, so that my family could celebrate my birthday in advance, while everyone was home. :)

On my actual birthday, I took myself to a day spa for a 90-min massage. It’s one of my favorite birthday traditions FOR myself. Even when I was going through some dark times in the last few years, I kept up this self-loving tradition, which I’m proud and grateful for. I usually hang out in the quiet room of the spa afterwards to reflect and set intentions for the new year. This year, I couldn’t find a full-feature day spa like the one I loved in NJ, but, I did find a nice spa that offers a rose and lavender massage. I was intrigued because the description says it includes a dry body brushing, flowing full body massage with rose & lavender cream, and being “cocooned” in a bed of rose petals while enjoying scalp and neck massage. Being “cocooned” like in a butterfly chrysalis? You know how much I LOVE butterflies. Of course I wanted to try that! It was very relaxing, indeed. Then, I tried a new Asian fusion restaurant, because I was craving sushi. Imagine my surprise, when I saw the “Caterpillar Roll” on the menu. Wow, another sign about butterflies! Of course, I HAD to try the Caterpillar Roll along with sashimi. They were both delicious and I was so impressed by the presentation! Another surprise was that my son texted me an hour before dinner, saying his dinner plan got cancelled, so he could now have dinner with me. YIPEEE! We went to our favorite Thai place near our home and had a great time! I feel so blessed and grateful for all the love and birthday wishes from my family and friends.

Now, go watch my video (see below). I bet you can relate to my story on some level, as so many people who watched that movie have told me so. I have a hunch that it might help you in some way. I’d love to hear your story and what you think of the video. Please leave your comment below, OK? If I can support you on your journey in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me.

More importantly, please take good care of yourself, because you are irreplaceable.

Here is The Keeper of the Keys video. Enjoy! If you love my segment, you’d want to order your own copy of The Keeper of The Keys movie DVD here.

Award-Winning Documentary “The Keeper of the Keys” Helps People Thrive in Change

Award-winning self-help film “The KEEPER of the KEYS” can help people thrive in change, said best-selling author and women’s empowerment expert Hueina Su.

Change is in the air. For millions of Americans feeling stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, confused, fearful, stuck in analysis paralysis, second-guessing themselves, and worried excessively in times of economic downturn and uncertainty can learn how to adapt and thrive in change from an award-winning self-help film “The Keeper of the Keys” featuring best-selling author, inspirational keynote speaker, and personal growth expert Hueina Su.

THE KEEPER OF THE KEYS is the winner of 2012 Indie Fest Award for Best Feature Documentary, blending personal development with funny and entertaining story line, aimed to “take the ‘hell’ out of self-help!”

Hueina Su, MS, BSN, CEC, is a mindful wellness and women’s empowerment expert, international keynote speaker, certified life coach, and the best-selling author of Intensive Care for the Nurturer’s Soul: 7 Keys to Nurture Yourself While Caring for Others. Su is the president and founder of Beyond Horizon Coaching in Denville, New Jersey, an internationally recognized expert in helping people find the missing peace and power in their stressful lives. She is a world-class mentor and evolutionary leader inspiring heart-centered, high-achieving professional women and entrepreneurs.

Su said, “2012 is the Year of the Water Dragon, which occurs every 60 years. From a Feng Shui standpoint, the year of the Water Dragon brings many possibilities for good fortune. In Chinese legend, dragons are shape-shifters, and water shares the same shape-shifting property. Water Dragon personifies creativity at its best.”

“So, you can imagine, the year of the Water Dragon is a powerful year of transformation and there’s no coincidence that 2012 is the Year of the Water Dragon. You must learn how to adapt and thrive in change, and The Keeper of the Keys can provide inspiration and strategies for that,” Su added.

Highly acclaimed by Spiritual Cinema Circle co-founder Stephen Simon as the most innovative and entertaining film of its kind ever made, The Keeper of The Keys is featured as its April 2012 movie of the month to its members in 65 countries worldwide. Simon praises one of the stars Hueina Su for her insights and contributions in the film.

Simon was very impressed by Su’s message of faith, self-love, and authenticity in the film. Simon said, “Hueina, as one of the stars of the film, you are one of major reasons that it is so wonderful…your insights, and the compassionate way that you communicate them, are beautiful and deeply meaningful….thanks so much for your contribution to what I believe is the best film of its kind that I have ever seen– and, yes, that includes The Secret!

In this scene from THE KEEPER of THE KEYS movie, Su shares the key of faith and her inspiring life-changing story of self-love and courage. Watch the teaser trailer:

Is Your Perfectionism Keeping You Stuck?

If you are a high-achiever, you always aim for excellence and achievement. You don’t mind working extra hard, going the extra mile in order to achieve your goals. However, in the name of pursuing excellence, it’s very common for high-achievers to fall prey to perfectionism. There’s a fine line between being excellent and being perfect. The desire to be excellent motivates you to move forward and be the best you can be. On the flip side, the need to be perfect fills you with anxiety and self-doubt, runs you ragged and keeps you stuck.

Your Inner Perfectionist may sound like this:

  • I have to be perfect OR ELSE!
  • If I’m not perfect, I’m a complete failure.
  • People are waiting for me to fail and they will laugh at me.
  • I’m not trying hard enough, otherwise I would’ve been perfect.
  • Why can’t I pull it off like “everybody else”? What’s wrong with me?
  • If I’m not perfect, nobody will love me.
  • I can’t afford to make any mistakes.
  • I have to be the best in everything I do.
  • I’m so afraid of making the wrong choices or wrong moves that I’ve lost confidence in myself.
  • If I can’t make it perfect (or, If I’m not sure I can succeed), why do I even bother getting started?
  • If I don’t finish it, I won’t have to find out how imperfect (what a loser) I am.

Does it sound familiar? How does reading these statements make you FEEL – physically and emotionally? Do you tend to set impossibly high standards for yourself (and others) and beat yourself up over and over for not reaching your goals? If you feel anxious, frustrated, stuck in analysis paralysis, chest tightening, hyperventilating, paralyzed by fear of failure, with an extra dose of self-doubt or even self-loathing, you are probably a perfectionist. And the higher your aspirations are, the more severely affected you would be by perfectionism. The more successful you are, the more problematic perfectionism would manifest in your life, your health, your relationships and career/business.

Be honest: Is your Inner Perfectionist running you ragged these days? I know, because I’ve been there myself.

Last week I was invited by my Taiwanese sister Andrea J. Lee to speak via video at her 2012 The Wealthy Thought Leader event. Andrea asked me to share my experience in The Keeper of the Keys movie (which I costar with Jack Canfield, John Gray and Marci Shimoff), and offer advice for attendees who are considering a movie project like this in the future.

If you are in the coaching & personal development industry, you’d know it’s a great honor to be included in Andrea’s Wealthy Thought Leader event. Andrea is known for teaching thought leaders on how to stay ahead of the curve, make money AND meaning via innovation. Her annual Wealthy Thought Leader event (it’s her 4th this year) in Vancouver, B.C. always attracts high-caliber speakers and thought leaders from all over the world. So, imagine my joy and surprise when I got a message from Andrea inviting me to share my experience at her event. And since she asked for a video sharing, I don’t even have to worry about flying over there. I was so excited!

There’s only one caveat: I got Andrea’s email on Sunday night, asking me if I can send her my video by Tuesday, or the latest Wednesday (her event starts on Thursday morning).

“Oh, I wish I had more time to work on this!!” my Inner Perfectionist piped up right away.

I assured her, “That’s okay, it’s only a very short video (5 min) and we can make it.” She insisted, “But, Hueina, this is your very first contact with Andrea’s community, and there will be so many accomplished thought leaders there. You want to make a perfect first impression. It’s very important, you know.” Well, first impression IS important. I can’t argue with that!

Then, my Inner Good Girl chimed in, “And Hueina, it’s such an honor that Andrea asked you to do this. It’s important to her and you don’t want to disappoint her.” The Inner Good Girl is the one who always wants to be a “good girl” and do good. She is all concerned about being proper, doing things right and making others happy (often at the cost of her own well-being). I started to feel a little pressure on my chest. Well, I do want to give Andrea and her community a great video that brings value to them; however, I do not want to get stressed out over this.

Been there, done there. Not again.

Instead, my intention was to make this video with JOY and offer it as my gift to Andrea and her community. I wanted to have a little FUN in the process as well (fun is one of my highest core values). Knowing the persuasive power of my Inner Perfectionist, and fully aware of my time constraints, I made a deal with her right off the bat. I told her that I agreed with her that we wanted to present a high-quality video that represents me well, and brings high value for Andrea’s community. On the other hand, I made it clear to her that we needed to stick to my schedule and honor my other business and family commitments (and it goes without saying that I would keep my self-care as well). AND, I wanted to aim for being professional and authentic, NOT perfect.

With the ground rules set, I looked at my business and family schedule, and picked out a couple small blocks of time for this project. I knew I most likely won’t be able to record and edit the video in one sitting. Trying to do everything all at once would probably tire me out. On the other hand, I knew I had to give myself and my Inner Perfectionist a deadline, otherwise I’ll be spending WAY too much time and energy working on “perfecting” the video. Can you relate to this? 😉

So, my Inner Perfectionist and I went to work – first in our head, planning out what we’d like to share based on Andrea’s questions. As it turned out, it’s not easy to condense all I wanted to share in 5 minutes, without feeling rushed or speaking at a frantic pace (that wouldn’t be peaceful or powerful, would it?) The creative in me had so many ideas, and I wouldn’t and couldn’t settle for a boring “talking head” video. So, I decided to include a snippet of The Keeper of the Keys movie trailer, and used a short clip of my segment in the movie to illustrate my point of telling deeply personal story in a powerful way. By the way, that’s how you can connect with the audience, stand out and be memorable.

I was excited by this new idea, so I planned out the video and recorded my speaking part. Next is the editing part – stringing everything together. Of course, every step of the way, my Inner Perfectionist was by my side, relentlessly reminding me to be perfect and fiercely pointing out my flaws. Every time she did that, I thanked her for trying to help and patiently but firmly reminded her the ground rules we’ve agreed on. Reminding myself my intention to bring value instead of trying to create a perfect video really helped. When I used up the time I’ve set for myself to complete this project, I saved the video, and sent it to Andrea right away. She told me she loved the video and they way I’ve designed it, with commentary and snippets of the movie trailer as well as my story. When she showed the video at The Wealthy Thought Leader event last Friday, I got so many praises and accolades from the live audience as well as simulcast attendees. Even days after I still got messages from Facebook thanking me for my sharing. :)

So, what can you learn from my experience? Here are 7 tips for overcoming perfectionism:

1. When opportunity knocks, you need to take decisively swift action. Successful people are action-takers. The rule of thumb is, ALWAYS SAY YES first, then figure out how to get it done.

2. Set a clear intention before you commit to or start a new project. What do you intend to achieve as the end result? (hint: aim for anything but absolute perfection.) Also, what do you intend to experience in the process and as a result of this project? For example, joy, fun, connecting with others, learning something new, making a difference, feeling proud of yourself, etc.

3. Set a clear time frame for you to work on the project. This is for you if you have a tendency to not finish your project, procrastinate like crazy, or spend FOREVER trying to make it perfect.

4. Before you start anything, set ground rules for yourself and your Inner Perfectionist, and firmly reinforce these rules. In my coaching, I teach my clients specific ways to communicate with their Inner Perfectionists and turn them into helpers, not tyrants who boss them around until they are totally run down.

5. Acknowledge and praise yourself for your efforts and progress (no matter how little), not just the end result. Practice loving kindness and Intensive Self-Care.

6. Know that your Inner Perfectionist (with her magnifying glass and white cotton gloves) is probably the only one who can see your flaws. To other people, you are probably quite amazing.

7. Remember, good enough is good enough. If you are offering something (be it your words or gifts of any kind), as long as it’s from your heart and you have done your best, it’s more than good enough.

So there you have it. My 7 tips for overcoming perfectionism. There’s no extra charge for the typos. :)

Here’s the video I shared at The Wealthy Thought Leader event, which included snippets of The Keeper of the Keys movie trailer and MY segment in the movie. Check it out!! :)

This One is a Keeper

Happy Monday! Today is the first Monday of the 2nd quarter of 2012. Can you believe the first quarter is already gone?! Are you on target to achieving your goals?

Everyone knows that 2012 is a MAJOR turning point for the entire world. There’s a HUGE shift – both energetically and in the physical realm – happening on the global level as well as in your personal life. There’s no doubt about it. This past year was extremely trying for many of my friends, colleagues and clients. I’ve never seen so many people I personally know who went through job loss, health crisis, financial problems, divorce and other relationship troubles, emotional breakdowns, death and other losses — all in one year. It just seems like there’s a HUGE wave of tsunami that swept people off their feet and they are struggling to hold on for safety.

If you’ve found yourself in your dark night of the soul, and you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, you are not alone.

Meet Michael Walden.

Michael is having one bad day after another… and there is no end in sight. He is a victim of his circumstances… or so he believes. After losing his job and finding his house in foreclosure, he becomes increasingly negative and frustrated. It doesn’t help that his fiancée Anne, tired of his rants, breaks off their engagement. Depressed and discouraged, he falls asleep … and dreams.

Success coach Jack Canfield (you know, the creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul) appears on his TV and tells Michael he is sending some friends – experts – who will help him to discover the 7 KEYS and how to use them to change his life for the better. So begins an incredible and hilarious journey that has Michael encountering experts from around the world as he is led through an eerie estate by Elizabeth, a spiritual guide.

Of course, as cynical as Michael is, he wouldn’t go along without kicking and screaming. Think Harry Potter meets Woody Allen meets The Secret. Not since “A Christmas Carol” has a dream been this rich, this revealing, or this much fun.

Who says a self-help documentary has to be boring or painful? “The Keeper of the Keys” is the first FUNNY personal development movie starring Jack Canfield, John Gray, Marci Shimoff, Hueina Su (me) and other outstanding experts. A unique hybrid, “The Keeper of the Keys” seamlessly blends expertise with entertaining fiction to create a compelling, empowering movie you will want to watch again and again.

Get your Kleenex ready for lots of belly laughs and tearjerkers!!

I have attended the red-carpet premieres of The Keeper of the Keys in Las Vegas and Colorado Springs, and the audience reaction was tremendously positive. And it’s not just adults who can relate and appreciate the story and message in this movie. When I showed it to my cousins and their children, everyone enjoyed it. Even my 7-year-old niece was moved to tears watching my segment! Don’t you think your children can use some inspiration and learn the 7 keys from these world-renowned experts?

My Birthday Celebration & 3 Gifts for You


Happy Spring! My birthday is coming up this Sunday, and my heart is filled with JOY and gratitude. Last year was an incredible year for me, and I know I have so much more to look forward to in 2012. For starters, I’m looking forward to being pampered and spending some quiet time at the spa (my birthday tradition), and I saw my hubby goggling French restaurants. Yipee!! I want to let you know that I so appreciate having YOU in my tribe, and I’d love you to celebrate my birthday with me!!

To celebrate, I have prepared THREE special gifts for you:

GIFT #1. Watch this new video of Jack Canfield, Marci Shimoff, John Gray & Hueina Su talk about Law of Vibration, Authenticity, Love and True Self.

As you know, Jack Canfield, Marci Shimoff, John Gray and I co-star in the ground-breaking personal development movie “The Keeper of the Keys.” The Keeper of the Keys is the first funny self-help movie that empowers viewers by “Taking the ‘Hell’ Out of Self-help.” The Spiritual Cinema Circle has decided to introduce The Keeper of the Keys as their April 2012 feature film to their members in 65 countries worldwide.

Here’s what Jack Canfield said about The Keeper of the Keys movie:

“When Producer Robin Jay shared with me her vision for a different kind of motivational movie and then invited me to star in it, I jumped at the chance. In The KEEPER of the KEYS, I appear in a role reminiscent of Jacob Marley … and the dream sequence that follows is a brilliant combination of hilarious characters and moving stories.

This is the perfect movie for our time; it addresses the challenges we face every day – from the financial crisis to our ability to interact with one another, yet it is also the first FUNNY self-help movie ever. I know you’ll love it. There have been many movies made about having more; The KEEPER of the KEYS is about BEING more. Seeing it will change your life. Not since A Christmas Carol has a dream been this rich, this fantastic, or this much fun!”
— Jack Canfield, Creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul
