There’s nothing like a doom’s day until you have toppled upon to believe in it. Starting off with diving yourself into excitement to do something can sound fun, however, what’s paramount is to retain and grow as an individual throughout this journey. It could never be an overnight success to experience the best version of yourself, but little efforts every day could knit a bigger and better story that you have been dreaming to achieve. Whenever we hear exceptionally successful stories, the stories are often about extreme hardships, braving impossible odds, innumerable sacrifices and obviously an empowered will to bag what one aimed for!
“It’s the Universe telling you that you are finally ready to embark on a life-changing journey towards your best.”Myke Celis’ one such story truly exemplifies the idea behind “staying relevant” and “empowering oneself” through the pesky rides of life.
Myke Celis is quickly gaining popularity as a Global Celebrity Life Coach and as the international best selling author of the #bestmeever book series. A Professional Master Coach from various reputable international coaching institutions like the Life Coach Training Institute (USA) and Coachology (Thailand), he is also certified by the International Coach Federation (ICF). Becoming one’s authentic, unapologetic and grandest version of himself is the core of his highly in-demand coaching platform across multimedia: #bestmeever which has been the go-to program of a number of celebrities, top executives and politicians from all over the world who want to empower themselves from within and become the person they’re meant to be beyond their own success.
This self-confessed “Unicorn” inspires others to walk the talk by sharing his own life changing journey towards self-empowerment, of which he champions for ever since he had experience its value while growing up amidst a restrictive, highly conservative environment.
Being known to have grown in a highly conservative family and expected to perform as per the “standards of others”, he knew he never wanted to be “others.” Having his ways of dealing with things and moulding unique perspectives, he experienced his “first spark” of self-awareness at a very early stage. “While little boys of my age then liked robots and fast cars, I was fascinated by rainbows and unicorns at age 5. That was my first concept of self-awareness. However, it took time before I got to really embrace the whole of me and love myself – took me 34 years after that to embrace my own unicorn within, minus any doubts or worries of being judged by others. Hey, never too late right?”
While understanding the excitement of this spark, Myke believes one needs to be self-sustained and own a motivated will to keep going. “Every single day, I would ask myself, why do I do the things I do? What value do I add to my life purpose for becoming #BestMeEver?”This is the same value he instills to each and every coachee he has and to the thousands of people world wide who have listened to his talks as an in-demand subject matter expert in coaching in media, corporate and academic setting across the globe: to constinuously journey towards their own #bestmeever , whatever that may look like for them.
Holding the idea of uncovering the beauty of this inspiration, he highlights the random things that he discovered about himself involving some of the flourishing experiences and important lessons that he couldn’t have witnessed if he didn’t keep going!
“Without the things defying the logic, one would never experience what they stand for.” Well, Myke has also had a rollercoaster journey like any other individual, from being bankrupt to fighting against a business friend’s betrayal, these uninvited challenges were mostly impending but were surely interesting enough for him to fight with. “Challenges were actually a great pivot on my end. It was the perfect time for me to start all over again and pursue what made me content and fulfilled, it was to become a professional global master coach! So, I turned my back on my lucrative advertising and marketing career of 14 years to build my coaching practice from scratch. It was all about seeing the possibilities beyond the fear. And looking back, it was perhaps one of the best decisions I have made in my entire life. Because by doing so then, at present, I am able to live my purpose, every single day. Priceless!”Self-empowerment allows one to do just that: come from what truly matters from within so one can live it out. Sound decisions on what makes one fully alive minus the worry of starting all over again or what others have to say in the process.
Promoting to perform better on the professional field and balancing his decisions aligned between head and heart, Celis also emphasizes on promoting guilt-free breaks and treating oneself to reboot the entire system for making new and beautiful changes. “Keeping your eyes anchored on your purpose would never put you in the guilt of taking a break. Choose to make your breaks meaningful by asking yourself about how that time off can help you grow and flourish in your journey. Start your day being grateful, face the mirror and allow yourself to overcome the self-limiting beliefs and struggles. Allow your words, your self talk to change you for the better.”
Success followed Myke as he started working as a global master coach with an international roster of amazing clients. While thriving in the space and breaking the stereotypes to step beyond the conventional borders, Celis has been powerfully inspiring numerous people at various levels to redefine their beliefs and aims, which included being a radio talk show host, a subject matter expert columnist for Coaching in MarketingInAsia.Com stepping up on the TEDx platform 13 times!
Aiming to create a better tomorrow for mentees and thriving through experiences, Myke aims to encourage budding professionals and mentors to empower their existence and identity in the best possible way. “I always had this notion: it’s not always about me but my mentees. Focus on helping others to become their best because, at the end of the day, their success is yours as well! Looking at your clients as a family more than an income source can do wonders to your legacy, and lastly, practicing what you preach could be one of the greatest inspirations for any mentee from a mentor.”This is something close to Celis’ heart: inspiring his coach mentees from all over the globe through his mentorship coaching program to help bring out their own brand of coaching as they inspire their clients to be their best. He believes that by doing that he is able to make the world a happier place to live in in his own way.
Numerous stories have created motivation and newness inside us, but powering up the same motivation with an empowered mind and will can make these stories worth sharing with others!
At least that’s what Myke Celis believes as he ends with this powerful insight:
“Everything starts from within: your happiness, your growth and your own #bestmeever . Empower yourself from within…and live the life you’ve always wanted there after. I am excited to journey with you all.”
