About Lin

A journey of transformation

It was June 2017. I was sitting in my car, waiting for my office to open. As I stared at the entrance to my workplace, I felt like I was looking into a black hole. I started to cry.

I started to cry because I was losing all hope. My marriage was on autopilot. I wasn’t paying attention to my health. My toddler son was growing up without me. I felt so stuck with my life.

My logical brain tried to reason with me: I had a good job, with benefits and a pension! I had spent six years earning my degrees and another eight years working my way up to this position. It was obvious that I just needed to suck it up, check my soul at the door, and do my job.

But I knew I was not on the right path. I was paralyzed by a fear of failure. What did my boss and my coworkers really think of me? Had I gotten this far just to disappoint the people around me? Would I ever be the child my parents dreamed I would be?

While I searched for answers, I continued fighting through the darkness of this soul-sucking job. One afternoon, it all became too much. In despair I reached out to a friend. “Do you have time to talk?” I asked.

She did: but only for eleven minutes. So I immediately began pouring out my feelings. I let my words tumble out, one after the other, sharing all my frustrations and hopelessness with her.

She listened for a short while and then stopped me. Speaking very gently – not offering advice or telling me to get it together – she offered words of wisdom and support and a simple question that shifted my mindset.

Sun rays shining through clouds

When the phone call ended, I couldn’t believe how I felt. This 11-minute conversation had changed my life. I suddenly saw light piercing through the dark cloud that had been smothering me. I felt hope. I felt the warmth of life.

At that moment, I found my purpose. As I wondered how many others had let the darkness keep their light from shining, I felt a burning desire to help others exactly the way my friend had helped me.

Are you satisfied with your current life?
Have you asked yourself, “What is my purpose?”
Do you feel like a dark, heavy cloud is always blocking out your light?
What is stopping you from creating your best life?

If you’re ready to consider these questions, it would be my honour to support you in your journey of transformation.

[Music] hello my name is liam sue i live in london ontario canada let me tell you about my life before i discovered brief thinking institute i was trained as a registered dietitian i spent six years in university dedicated to become that success i thought i had to have and i was successful i was actually the first international student to become registered dietitian in ontario i was proud of myself i even found a job with a benefit and pension it was permanent i thought i had it all however after six years of education all of that hard work two weeks of working as a registered dietitian i started notice part of me was really really questioning about this choice because i was not fulfilled i was not making the impact that i thought i wanted to make in other people's lives i wanted to help but i didn't feel like i was helping in a meaningful way working as a regular dietitian another part of me said no no no you stay in that career path because your parents spend all of their money and you worked so hard so i did i spent the eight next eight years doing just that and that discontent just grows stronger and stronger and stronger to the point i couldn't ignore it anymore the more i was given responsibility-wise the more hour i was putting in my job gradually i started to lose a sense of who i am who i was what i really wanted to do i felt like a dog chasing his tail and i was not happy i was stressed out and then during the entire eight years i was lucky enough to marry the love of my life we had a baby and i was on maternity leave when i went back to work after maternal leave i really started to notice this pain the pain of not doing what i would want to do anything that is meaningful for me and the pain of sacrificing my family's happiness for my so-called successful career i was not fulfilled by it yet i was leaving home way before either my husband nor my child was getting up i didn't see them for the day i looked at the entrance i felt it's a black hole it was going to suck me into it and i wouldn't be able to come out i felt the energy was so dark and heavy nothing wrong with the workplace is it's not a fit with me anymore i started to cry i did not know why at that moment i just felt so sad for living that life for so long for not utilizing my full potential staring at that dark hole and for being so scared to walk into it i knew i had to put my soul at the door because i thought maybe if i do that i can come out again so i could go home again and see the people who are really matters to me that moment when i was so sad i made the decision do something change something whatever it is this cannot keep going on because this is not a life to be had my marriage at the time was on autopilot i bring so much stress home and i didn't really pay attention to the true connection with my husband in my health back then there were part of my body was start to suffer because i was pushing you so hard with physical activity trying to release some of that stress and most importantly my husband and i we have been wanting to have another baby for a while yet we were not successful that frustration that disappointment that pain at times it was really really unbearable [Music] at the meantime through a chain of event i discovered life coaching i did not know what life coaching is all about i just started having conversations being really supportive of my friends and i give them a different perspective about life about their situation they walked away so happy i thought is this life coaching if it is and i don't care but i love it i truly truly enjoyed it and i knew i must find myself a teacher a mentor i made the decision to study with brave thinking institute at the highest program they offer for myself to receive coaching within the brave thinking masters program at the highest level because i knew that is a must for me in order for me to create my dream life in order for me to really receive the deeper understanding of teachings and my life has transformed and now let me tell you about my life today i love my life i'm so happy and grateful that every single morning i wake up so on purpose i cannot wait to do what i'm about to do in my every single day activity i love my coaching business i love to watch my clients transformation for them to create the result matters to them and to really see their changing in their mindset and therefore in their results and from there i have built a really highly successful coaching business setting my own schedule working about 15 to 20 hours a week and generating multiple six-figure incomes in the last four months i'm so grateful for that with my marriage nowadays how i look at my husband how we look at each other we are truly deeply connected at the soul level we look at each other with passion and kindness and love we always dream together we support each other's visions and dreams i always considered my husband as my first client even though he didn't really pay me my husband had a 12 year old dream that was to own his chinese medicine wellness center he was in this teeny tiny little clinic it's just one room it was so small it just barely fit him and his patient so when i first certified it was a no-brainer to share with him all of the things i've learned and together we decided to take action take some meaningful action with what we had from where we were and we started to look at properties we started looking at different facilities where we could have this beautiful wellness center eventually we landed on this property we are right now with our over 2000 square foot incredibly beautiful light and filled with our own energy chinese wellness center during the whole time he was dreaming about this multidisciplinary team and focusing on chinese medicine supporting each and every client working to the door with love with care with the true power of healing we have so much fun just communicating building and creating and to marry brief thinking institute and your entire faculty i'm just so grateful for for having those mentors in my life [Music] i simply cannot imagine what my life would look

from it they showed me how to have fun and they showed me what it looks like to be in a community where you just feel so belonging to and so loved and so supported i want to see mary and the entire
