Hai’s Good Advice

Meet Hai Ho from Vietnam.

Tell us about yourself in one line.

I am a 32 year old impact entrepreneur and an experience collector in Vietnam.

What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?

Only after 32 years, have I started to learn how to become fully present with an added peace of mind.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? 

“Nothing is stronger than gentleness” – Coach John Wooden. I used to think being a leader, sometimes you have to be cruel like Lee Kwan Yew, Steve Jobs or Elon Musk. Since I read coach John Wooden book, I started to realize you can actually lead with just gentleness.

Has there ever been a time in your life when this piece of advice came in handy? 

My neighbour was a drug addict and because of that, I never approached him. I always possessed the fear that he would hurt my children when I was away. One day, after I read about the quote, I did my best to give him a smile. To my surprise, he smiled back and we talked. He is now a changed man. As for now, I’m glad that my perception of him changed for the better.
