My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who has had an amazing journey of self discovery and fulfilment
When she was a small girl, she was in a dark place, and after a failed suicide attempt she realized that she needed serious help.
Feeling rejected and confused about being given up and being adopted, she decided to do self therapy on herself as a 16 year old girl.
By doing the unorthodox shock method of becoming a model.
As she says “It was very painful going for auditions after auditions, alone, as a timid and self conscious teenager. However I was determined to redeem my lost self and forced myself to keep at it.”
And that she did.
And that spirit of self improvement has carried her through her life, and now with her own self named company helping others to find their place on earth, and taking that one step further, she is also the fire-starter of For Our Children (FOC) Singapore, an initiative set up to raise funds to build schools in third world countries, helping children gain a better start in life than she was given herself..
It appears that her dots have well and truly joined up and placed her in her sweet-spot.
The place that she born to flourish in.
So did that little girl, who grew up into an empowered woman, ever truly believe that she could banish the darkness and live in world of light and positivity?
And when did the realisation of it was up to her to take control and claim her destiny start to appear in front of her?
Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Joy Leng.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Joy Leng such as:
How her Mother is a serial saver, but without a doubt the quickest way forward in your life is investing in yourself.
How Joy cannot remember what made her want to be a model as it was such a a painful period of her life, but is so glad that she took control of her own destiny.
Why the quickest way to build a business is not trying to connect with customers but is by connecting with ourselves. Finding who we were born to be.
How she remembers seeing a photo of two dirty, naked, girls and feeling that her life would never be the same again.
Joy explains how travel gives her a global mindset, which helps her build her business, but Singapore is where the heart is. She needs to feel connected to her younger-self to move forward.
