In my line of work, I have realised that both adults and students suffer from anxiety, lack of confidence, and well-being issues which contribute to a sense of existential identity loss and a lack of clarity in their lives.
PHILIPTAIL LE // IKIGAI COACH
REIGON: HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM
Discovering the authentic Japanese concept of Ikigai has profoundly influenced my life. This journey has helped me recognize the values and roles from the past that have shaped the person I am today, as well as the one I hope to be in the future.
“Make the most of yourself for that is all there is for you” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sports and particularly tennis has given me the opportunity to experience Ikigai and identify myself as a lifelong learner. It has taught me so much about myself, about co-existing with others, and more importantly, about learning from others.
I have primarily developed my professional growth as a financial consultant, however, I have transitioned into an international teacher and a mental tennis coach for the past 12 years. It has been a privilege to practice as an international teacher in an environment where we respect the very diverse cultures and values of students that come from all over the globe, aiming to equip them with the knowledge and skills to act as citizens and actors of a better world. The experiences I have gained in these areas have strengthened my ability to listen to people and reflect on their ideas, goals, and concerns.
By using Ikigai as a pedagogical tool, students can learn and study more effectively, ultimately taking meaningful steps to ensure a bright future. To facilitate the exploration of Ikigai, my area of expertise is in leisure and physical activities to help athletes to define their values, roles, and forge meaningful connections with their performance abilities.
I offer group workshops and individual sessions to coaches/educators, students and athletes who are seeking to achieve self-actualization, thriving in an ever-changing world, and performing at their true best, but also to like-minded professions that are seeking meaning in their lives.
If you want to release your true self and fulfil your potential through sport or physical activities, please contact me. My goal is to help you overcome your hardships in life and guide you into a world full of infinite possibilities.
