Christine Cheng is a writer, entrepreneur, and the founder of The Happiness Project. She is also the co-founder of the American Dream, Inc., an organization dedicated to helping individuals from all walks of life achieve their goals. In her free time, Christine enjoys reading, writing, traveling, and spending time with her family.
In addition to her work at The Happiness Project, Christine serves as the Executive Director of the National Association of Business and Professional Women, a member of the National Council of Women, and is a board member for the International Women’s Day Organization. She also co-hosts an hour-long podcast called “The Happy Hour,” which is a daily dose of happy talk with a variety of guests on the topics of money management, relationships, and happiness.
Well, Christine Cheng is also a Chinese filmmaker and was the founder of the Chinese-American Film Foundation. The foundation has an annual award of $10,000 to award the winning female filmmaker with the honor of becoming the “most valuable Chinese person” in America. That award may not get the attention it deserves among the Hollywood moguls who are already busy promoting their projects to the masses, but that would be a great publicity coup.
Cheng, who is also a former assistant to the legendary director Zhang Yimou, is one of those rare people who can get away with not really being a filmmaker. She got the idea for her movie Money Management after she watched a documentary about the practice of the Chinese “gung fu” system, which is a kind of self-defense method that utilizes “dynamic equilibrium, physical and mental strength, agility and mental control.
It’s also worth noting that Cheng is the one who coined the term “self-awareness” to describe her movies. It’s part of her self-help mission. Cheng’s movies have a lot to teach us about self-awareness, and how to live the life of our dreams.
Since my own film, Money Management, I had to learn how to keep my own life in perspective. I used to think about “happening” when I was in a financial-business relationship and trying to keep my money in perspective. The truth is that, like many others, I had a huge passion for the arts, and I was trying, and failing, to learn the art of self-organization. I still am.
That passion is something that can be learned. That’s why I think self-awareness is such an important trait in the world. It’s why I believe that self-awareness is the most important thing in the world. It’s why I believe that you can’t just sit back and take what someone else says and act on it. We are more than what we do. We have a purpose. We are the stuff that makes our world go around.
In fact, I think we’re the stuff of our world. We create the world around us, but we also create the world for us. And we are the stuff of our world – the stuff we create when we are making a world for ourselves. And I think that it is through our self-awareness that we can choose to change our world.
I think we have all the knowledge and tools to create a world for ourselves that’s good for us, but we’ve all been caught up in the trap of giving up control of our own world. We don’t have the power to control the things that affect our lives, and that’s a part of why we feel so overwhelmed and disempowered when we don’t have the power to change the things that affect our lives.
The problem with giving up control is that it makes it nearly impossible to create a world that fits us instead of fitting the world we already have. We have a very limited amount of time with our lives, and we need to make sure that we spend it doing things that make us happy, not things that make our lives worse. This applies to all aspects of our lives, from our relationships, to our health, to our work, to our dreams.
