Throughout my years from high school to university, I have seen many top students thriving consistently in their results. At the same time, I have also seen students who performed badly in each and every test they took. Also, I have seen students who are willing to step up their games and take up leadership roles in their respective field, compared to those who did not take initiative. This makes me wonder, what is the main factor separating the students who are successful compared to those who are not? What are the things that successful students did differently that allows them to be at the top?

As a former student, I have gone through ups and downs in my study life. Here are the main problems that I have found in students nowadays that are hindering their growth and preventing them to grow in life.

1. Students do not have a clear goal on what they want in life, which demotivates them from working hard for their studies.

2. Students have low confidence level when they are required to step up.

3. Students tend to have this two killer for success, which is fear and procrastination.

4. Students do not know themselves well enough to leverage on their strengths to achieve their goals.


Youth Personal Transformation Program is a program that emphasizes on personal mastery. This program is carried out by incorporating powerful Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques and also highly experiential activity to help students in discovering the strengths within them.

Youth Personal Transformation Program aims to bring up confidence in students and prepare them to take up more leadership roles in the future. Here are a few takeaways from this program.

- Learn the most powerful formula every successful students use to achieve outstanding results.

- Effective and well-defined formula to set your goals and a detailed action plan to realize them.

- Develop unstoppable confidence to achieve your goals. (Using NLP Techniques)

- Learn how to break fears and overcome procrastination.

- Learn effective communication skills and eliminate any challenges that come along the way.

- Discover and unleash the strength in you.

Ong Shu Yi


My name is Ong Shu Yi, the lead trainer for Gen Z in Thriving Talents. I have deep passion in developing young people to become the future leader. Also, being a Certified NLP Practitioner, I have learnt about the power of using the subconscious mind, and how we can reprogram our mind to achieve the results we want. This is a whole new training style that I would love to introduce to the young generation, allowing them to unlock their fullest potential.

I was once an outstanding student and also a high achiever in sports. I have represented my state, Kuala Lumpur in badminton back in the year 2011 and won several national titles. This is why I would love to share my journey as a top student in academics and sports to becoming an NLP coach so that I will be able to help them in becoming the best version of themselves.

I believe that the biggest advantage that I have is age. Because I am young, I am able to connect with the students better, and also to relate my experience to them even better. This has enables me to help students with different passions and goals without resistance throughout the year.
