Rebound Stronger Podcast Ep. 22 with Delane Cooper

We are connected through The School of Greatness Academy (http://schoolofgreatness.com/ ) by Lewis Howes also known as SOGA back in July earlier this year. Delane has an upbeat personality and also is a friend with a big heart who has helped me and wants to help others grow. She has connected me with several amazing people within the SOGA Community for the Rebound Stronger Podcast such as, Tina Ranoso Bangel, Carole Pilling, Jenifer Vroom, and many others.

Delane Cooper is a custom jewellery designer and goldsmith who expresses her creativity by making beautiful pieces that tell meaningful stories for the wearer. She works with all precious metal, pearls, precious coloured stones and diamonds.

Her jewellery has been featured in Elle Magazine and in Royal Ontario Museum. Every piece of her jewellery tells a story. I was so moved by one of her designs which pays tribute to a client’s parents love of 63 years. The husband was the strength for his wife during a decade of memory loss. Amazing story and beautiful ring.

As a young adult, Delane achieved early success in marketing and sales in technology. But in 2003 she found her true calling in jewellery design.  Delane now marries her love of people’s stories with precious jewels and metals.

She has an amazing story of courage, through her journey of overcoming childhood abuse, having low esteem, dealing with medical issues, finding unconditional love and discovering her true strength and potential because of love while writing new, exciting chapters in her life.

I believe

This was inspired by Ryan Deiss. In one of this talks last year, he showed a video of his staffs stating what he/she believe in. Lewis Howes also recommends listing your guiding principle. My friend also recommended me to list my 12 Commandment based on the Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin.

So I wrote down my believes, about a month ago (just for sample purpose, no other intent), because keeping these principles in mind makes my decision making easier:

I believe in God.
I believe in empowering people.
I believe in thinking big.
I believe in doing everything with integrity.
I believe in asking for forgiveness rather than permission.
I believe in taking massive actions.
I believe in done is better than perfect.
I believe in delivering what I promise.
I believe in working hard and smart.
I believe in planning strategically.
I believe in doing the best I can.
I believe that every person deserves a second chance.
I believe that I decide my own happiness.
I believe in abundance mentality.
I believe in having a vision.
I believe in myself and other people.

The list will keep on evolving.
