    Have you ever felt like you're capable of so much more...but something is holding you back? You know deep down you have big dreams and ambitions, but find yourself playing it small out of fear.
    In this episode, we tackle one of the toughest issues many Asian professionals face - the ingrained habit of staying in our comfort zones instead of fully embracing our potential.
    Through an enlightening discussion with success coach Sha-En Yeo (MAPP, CSP), Happiness Scientist and busy woman advocate Jaslyn, we uncover why the mentality of "playing it small" is so prevalent in our culture. What are the reasons behind our tendency to downplay our abilities and achievements. We'll also explore where these limiting fears come from and why they persist into our careers.
    Imposter syndrome, self-doubt, and missed opportunities will be explored in this engaging conversation. If you've ever felt hesitant to go after your dreams or struggled to fully embrace your accomplishments, this episode is a must-listen.
    Our guests share raw stories of personally breaking free from small thinking patterns. There will be insightful takeaways no matter where you're at in your professional journey.
    Tune in to get the tools and motivation to stop selling yourself short. It's time to bust out of your comfort zone, as we challenge the notion of playing it small and empower you to step into your greatness.
