Dinah Lin – Daring to Dream Once Again
In this episode of The Millionaire’s Lawyer, JP and Dinah Lin discuss:
Consistent success Dinah feels comes from Conviction.
- Conviction in yourself, that you are the one for the task.
- Conviction leads to courage, and courage leads to clarity.
Dinah held numerous corporate jobs, one being at Burger King, and another at Fortune 500.
Burger King at the time was not in China, so Dinah tried to bridge the gap by bringing the CEO to Beijing
McDonald’s at the time had been working with China’s Agricultural team to make sure that their food was up to their standards, even growing there own potatoes to get that correct.
Having a Strategic Long Term Plan is essential, and helps to make things grow to where you want them to be. Nothing happens overnight!
The culture in China is to not say “No”, might come off as misleading, but it’s because they don’t want to offend you or hurt your feelings.
Whoever you plan on sending places within your corporation, send them to culture training first so that they don’t do anything offensively, and can understand why some things are handled the way they are.
Be mindful of cultural differences
Put your dreams into motion with every job you do
It’s never too late to start something
Authors, making a heart lead book is more fulfilling for you and more enjoyable for the readers. What do you want to share? How do you want to help the people reading the book?
Themes applied from the Books Dinah has read:
- Being this more than doing this
- Slowing the mind down
- Not always having to do something
- Do not feel guilty for just being
True dreams never die, they may fade to the background, but guarantee they will resurface
Take it easy on yourself, you do not have to work all the time!
Playing isn’t a waste of time, make time to play, and make time for friends
Stop and smell the roses, take time to reflect on everything
Imperative to take breaks; you will be more productive when working
Mediation is hard to do, Dinah makes it work for her! She sits outside numerous times of the day to just sit down and enjoy the weather and reset!
Express your gratitude
“As brilliant as your left brain is, follow your heart” – Dinah Lin
From this episode of The Millionaires Lawyer with Dinah Lin:
You need to fully believe in yourself, your strengths
It’s never, ever, too late to follow your dream
I’d tell my younger self to ‘let up’ on myself, and take time for play!
Follow your heart, your heart has a wisdom and will not lead you astray
Listen to your heart
- Culture is different everywhere you go
- Every one should respect other cultures and how they handle things
- Put your dreams into motion
- Pursue what you want to do
