In the August Vogue, 2007 Caroline Palmer interviewed Tang Wei. Here is a quote from that article, "A self-professed tomboy, Tang says adopting a higher profile has been a seamless adjustment. "there is an old saying in China: Each year, we grow more branches and show more leaves, but our trunk remains unchanged. Who we are fundamentally is always there.’"
I totally agree with Tang Wei. When I help people sing their Song Of Their Soul I ask them to rediscover what is most central and essential about themselves already. What is most important to them? What is most core to their belief system? As they look for what is already there and find ways to enhance their own talents, strengths, interests, passions, etc. they come closer to themselves but also more and more capable of greater tasks and accomplishments. I talk more about this in my book, THE ENCHANTED SELF, A Positive Therapy.
