The other day, I was listening on YouTube to an interview of Tony Awards winner Lea Salonga on the BUILD series.
The interviewer was recounting how Lea was known in the business for being Miss No Problem – she has unparalleled demeanor that can seem to take on just about anything!
“We are moving rehearsals” No problem!
“We are opening in 2 weeks” All good, no problem!
“There are some mishaps! Are you okay?” No problem!
This professionalism and simply expansive attitude have the Broadway industry loving Lea – from the backstage to the front stage, from those working with her and to those she’s working for.
She is the reason why I’ve followed her for a long time. In one of her interviews, she recounted the moment she made a choice between being a biologist and doing professional singing.
In that moment of confusion and seeking for guidance, she heard,
“God gave you gifts. Use them.” from a sermon/homily of a priest who was usually talkative but ended up just saying this sentence that day when she was battling this inner struggle within her.
And that was more than enough of a sign for her –
She understood her gifts and she’s used them as much as she can – garnering not one but two Disney princesses’ roles, winning a Tony award and more.
Lea Salonga is one of the celebrities who’ve not only fully accepted her gifts as blessings instead of burden, but she is someone who continuously adapts to her intentions, expands on a daily basis and anchors to her magic so that she can create the next mind-blowing performance.
She makes Miracles through singing songs that move millions of souls.
She makes Miracles by owning up to her own miracle – her voice.
She makes Miracles by continuously shining her light and staying true to her core.
This is what being anchored to magic is all about.
This is what living from miracles is all about.
This is what being a miracle is all about!
And I am so honored and humbled to have the phrase “No Problem” more often than not come out of my mouth.
Because… I AM A MIRACLE AND I CAN MAKE MIRACLES SIMPLY BY BEING ONE!
How often do you say “that’s a problem” as opposed to “no problem“?
Blessing of miracles,
